I have been taking (generic) Synthroid for about 4 years now but obviously basic training wont allow for me to take my daily meds. So, i know stopping is dangerous, but i really want this and was wondering what kind of effects i might have if I stopped for the 6 weeks of basic then potentially 8 more weeks after that. i am trying to get a hold of my doctor but I am going crazy sitting here waiting for the phone to ring. Any wisdom/advice on the matter would be greatly appreciated. p.s.
im not sure about the canned air theory? maybe its diet? medication is reductil a diet pill ive been on em for year now i use basic cleaning agents as i have a puppy and trouble on the carpet i wear gloves when doing so and mostly scrub carpet with washing powder same brand ive always had only last few days its come out so im booking to see doctor tomorow!
The only other things I have going on that MAY be related, is an upper back pain/numbness... unknown cause. Been going on for years though. No diagnosis. So basically I'm out of ideas, and about to go insane. It's terrible at night not being able to sleep because of that feeling, and not being able to sleep with my girlfriend because I keep her awake with my constant moving around and itching...
80 to 1:640 in 3 months? What do I do about this... they already put me on prednisone but I definitely would like to know what other options I might have to help with this? I don't know much about the whole ANA thing but I am worried...
The problem does not appear to change with exertion, and there is no obvious swelling or marks on the leg. ( However, there are a few unexplained brusies). Initially fearing a bloot clot/heart/circulation problem, I had EKG's, blood tests, blood pressure checks and basic ultra-sounds of the arteries. They showed nothing.
Instead of focusing on removing excesses, acupuncture for chronic conditions focuses on invigorating and strengthening specific parts of the body. This is done while also decreasing the pain that commonly accompanies most chronic sports injuries. It is more difficult to generalize the length of treatment for chronic conditions.
The common causes of arthralgia are various forms of arthritis, including septic, rheumatoid and Osteoarthritis. Other causes include accidental injury or fracture, infectious diseases like rheumatic fever, flu, hepatitis, mumps, rubella or chicken pox, bursitis and autoimmune disorders such as lupus. When joint pain is caused by Injury to the ligaments, cartilage, and bones within the joint, this can bring on intense, debilitating pain.
CVD is the leading cause of death in the US and worldwide. Although we have made substantial progress in the development of medications to combat the causes of CVD like high cholesterol, hypertension and diabetes; the rapid proliferation of these diseases virtually negates and medical benefit. In other words, we are treating the consequences, not the cause.
Again, he said he wouldn't recommend surgery since it is a pretty intricate surgery....Doc said to come back if I had any pain. When I was 19, after basic training and AIT, I started having a lot of neck, shoulder, and upper back pain. I went to the doctor again... turns out the pain was coming from my collarbone- everytime it dislocated, it was irritating my muscles and nerves. I found an amazing heart surgeon that was willing to do my surgery- no if's and's or but's about it!
I am 41 I too have been suffering from numbness and tingling, to the point that it wakes me up almost every single night.I had , first one but ended up having 2 EMG/NCV one done on my hands and the other on my back(legs) they said I had bi-lateral carpal tunnel, and my back result showed polyneuropathy w/L-5 RADICULOPATHY. About a month later I asked my doctor to please run some blood work I just didn't feel right two days later the office called and said I need to come in right away.
Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists. The information provided to her would lead one to believe that TMD ( or "TMJ' as it is wrongly called by many) is easy to treat and self-manage or that it may all be in the patient's mind. The sources in the article stated that, "TMJ problems were originally thought to be caused by dental Malocclusion but that this was an infrequent cause of the problem".
I can't help but think something else could be wrong and I want to know so I can seek treatment or at least research how to best live with it. I appreciate any information you can give me to shed light on what to do. My husband thinks it could be Lupus, my doc says he doesn't think so so no tests are ordered.
But finding the reason my body turned on itself in the first place seems to be the basic simple answer I need.
So, I hope you can see a doctor and keep us posted as to what is going on. There might be someone on here that see's your post and may be having some similar issues and you could help them out. til later..........
I have a daily fight going on with swelling of my feet, lower legs, and my hands. I've been prescribed lasix and spironolactone and it helps but it only helps to get me to go to the bathroom more I don't really think it minimizes the swelling. Anyways I have two questions for y'all as I know there's at least two other ppl on this forum who take these direutics. 1. What if the Lasix stops working, is there another direutic I can take that you know about? 2.
I didn't look to see if you had previous posts or not and I will do that when I am finished but I would need more information on your symptoms. Chiari can cause many symptoms and the cavernoma can as well. Sometimes they are hard to distinguish. I have had extensive testing on the chiari and have been told by 4 doctors that mine is a non issue although there are times I wonder. I see you noted that you had mris and would like to suggest that you tell the dr.
So I dug up some more info that I wanna share ... in case you are dying of curiousity. Or need more info like I do. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- http***mb.rxlist.com/rxboard/ultram.pl?noframes;read=3179 not just for breakfast anymore Posted By: mkny Date: Friday, 21 October 2005, at 3:53 a.m.
Your symptoms would be shortness of breath and fatigue and sometimes chest pain. For more information on why I'm saying this about your BP and cholesterol find the book, Hypothyroidism, The Unsuspected Illness. It's a very interesting read about hypothyroidism.
I am really glad to hear you have found something that works on your pain as well as the Celebrax. I have taken it but with my stomach ulcers it was causing me more harm than good. I was taking the Bextra for a period of time and it worked well until they took it off the market. Nsaids are really great for pain and swelling if you do not have gastronomical problems. I did well on the Bextra and was switched to Celebrax but as I said it was not for me with the stomach ulcers.
Lana, there is good information on this forum if look on down around Oct/Nov. Look for Hydrocodone -- it is Vicodin. My husband also got hooked after an accident. When he ran out, he resorted to heroin. He hadn't done that in over 20 years. Hydrocodone woke the monkey up! He quit everything cold turkey Jan. 1. I've never seen anyone so sick. His stomach still hurts today. Please find a physician who will help and understand addiction. Will pray for you tonight.
I have tried telling my doctors that it is reason for my nerve damage/LBP, yet they keep telling me it isn't. That is when I did my research on TV instead of SBO and found some very interesting stuff regarding the Bertolotti's Syndrome. First of all, it is basically the SAME defect as SBO. Both are Congenital birth defects that involve the incomplete closure of the bones covering the spinal cord. With SBO, it states it causes NO pain, NO nerve involvement and can not be fixed.
Have you heard of this? If so where would one find out more information on the subject? I have had to make drastic changes to my lifestyle to cope with the pain. I desparetly need a job but I know that I cannot do the work I spent so much time and money on educating myself in. Not in this condition. Not with living with chronic pain day in and day out. I am increasingly becoming more fatigued but refuse to give up the fight to find relief.
I am going Aug to a new spine center, so i hope good things will come, but i have tried the chiropratctor, they just want to hurt you without having educated information on what is going on, not everyone has a sprained muscle, thats what a real doc is for, and for physical therapy, its good until someone gets hurt!You know how your body can move, dont let anyone mess you up more, they go home and eat their steak, we go home and suffer.
Hi There Dear Friends & Tramadol Warriors! Welcome to Part 26. Come on in and make yourself at home. We are delighted you came to join us. Lots to learn, lots to teach ...
Dear 2kidsmom, I want to add my support to what Nikibug mentioned about a Chiari. All of the symptoms you describe could be consistent with this, although of course that doesn't by any means mean that you have it. The diagnostic categories for a Chiari are shifting, so it's not necessarily an abnormality that will jump out at the radiologist in all cases. Many patients who have ended up with this diagnosis had had their MRI's initially read as normal.
If this continues I will look into Omeprezole you were on. This sounds encouraging. Thanks for your information. I hope this finds everyone well this Sunday night...or at least less sides than normal! I'm going to do shot 23/48 right now....it feels great to be getting to that 1/2 point!
I posted this on the other forum, but will try here, too. maybe with more luck. I have been noticing during the last few weeks that my fingers have become a little stiff. Not very much, but it is a little uncomfortable. The middle joint of my right middle finger has been hurting for about a week and is slightly swollen. It is getting a little worse every day. It feels a bit hotter to the touch, than the others. (I did NOT hit or twist this finger) Does anyone know what this could be?
I am going to see a rheumatologist in April so hopefully he may be able to get me some relief or at least some answers so I can get my life back to normal. If anyone out there has any information on new treatments or remedies or any answers for me I am open for suggestions.
After 2 rds. of therapy (48&52 wks.) and 2 rounds of maintainence dosages, I still carry the disease. It has been 6 mths. since my last maintainence dose & I am still having multiple sides. The worse is my legs & feet numbness. I have been diagnosed with Neuropathy, which could possibly reverse itself, but it seems to be getting worse. I use to get a tingling feeling in my legs prior to feet numbness. Now, my feet just go numb in an instant, resulting in many falls.
