Avatar f tn Drs Melvin Ramsay and John Richardson had Benign Myalgic Encephalomyelitis recognised byWHO in ICD-8 at Code 323 under Diseases of the Central Nervous System in the1969 edition of the WHO-ICD. Why was M.E. moved to Code G93.3 Other Disorders of theBrain with CFS listed as a synonymous term – can the CDC explain why it is nowin this odd category with various unrelated entries? The CFS definition does not describe the neurological disease M.E. and severely undermines its biomedical credibility.

1530342 tn?1405020090 Everyone gets paid to do a job but not all of them want to do their job, and find it easier to just say no rather than work for alternatives to help the patient. I have seen the same thing with someone in the private insurance field. Icd 9 codes and cpt codes that do not cover everything the patient needs is a common issue. For instance, someone needing a rotator cuff repair, may have to try therepy, injections, etc before being covered for the actual sx. This is common nowadays.

In MS(ICD-9 340, it seems like direct damage to the brain or spinal cord causes symptoms similar to what is seen in peripheral neuropathy, but are actually CNS in origin. So as CNS structures remyelinate, normal feeling returns to the effected extremities. So it looks like peripheral neuropathy, but is really CNS demyelination causing peripheral paresthesias and/or dysesthesias.
Avatar n tn My dissection resulted in a stroke and my artery is closed forever. You were lucky! My stroke doc says he sees many dissections in people doing less than what I was doing. Like you, my headache started within a couple of hours of me completing the race. Looking back, I feel that was an indicator that something was not right. As far as exercise goes, no running again. I spin now with a heart rate monitor. I don't let my heart rate go above 150. Have you considered that vs checking bp?

I didn't realize it was quite as bad as it is.
Avatar f tn Laying flat from 3 - 9 PM. My back just ACHED. Much better @ 9 when I could get up and walk. Catheter = ouch (I'm a 41 y.o. male). Urine is slightly bloody. I have a cough and sore throat from the intubation. Have spotted some very red blood. Just touches. I am to resume unrestricted physical activity in 2 weeks, which for me, means starting training for the Memphis St. Jude Marathon. Every thing I've read here is horror show: multiple ablations, complications...
Avatar n tn catheter was used which put about 18 lbs (approx 9 kilos?) of fluid into my body which gave me the worst post surgical symptome of dyspnea and fatigue until I got the water off of me with diuretics. You may want to clarify this with the Dr. so he can prescribe a diuretic post procedure.Just something that I had to deal with, but once my body expelled the excess fluid, I felt much better and went back to work in 4 days after.
Avatar f tn decided whether i needed an ICD or not. (I don't.) I used to swim a mile three or four times a week. Now i'm able to do a mile again, and walk for hours, but have to force myself. Afterword i'm very tired and just feel generally "dull" and not myself. I'm worried this is permanent and/or that it's a sign of another "event" waiting to happen.
1554262 tn?1374243601 Funbutton42: I forgot to mention that I read the article you suggested & that's spot on. For those who didn't read it, it talks about esophagus spasms & how they're relieved by drinking cold water. My GI doc told me that drinking anything would make a spasm worse. So who's right? The cardiac specialist or the GI specialist?!
Avatar n tn coronary, pulmonary or spontaneous bleeding and clotting can occur at any time and hasten death Additionally, it is not uncommon for liver failure patients to wax and wane in terms of their mentation, confusion and overall state. Paradoxically, it's a laxative (lactulose) which can improve their mentation by converting and clearing amonium from the system - which is a function of a healthy liver So it's a roller coaster I'm afraid.
Avatar n tn When I was around the age of 9 or so, i had a similar issue. While sleeping I would go to sleep in my dreams. It sounds wierd, but my dreams are very vivid and I am always aware. I found that waking up required me to wake up from each level of dream causing symptoms described earlier. Usually after waking up once, I would be nearly conscious but unable to open my eyes. I would have to force my eyes open.
