Avatar m tn Was originally told transplant but then was informed that his liver enzymes are still functioning well at times to prevent us from being placed on liver transplant list and they just don't know why he is hurting so much - they refer us to a pain management center.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar n tn But I would think they would have found something with all the testing. Have they ruled out appendicitis? Does the pain on your right side move downward? I wouldn't wait on this, if they say you're bleeding internally, you should be in the hospital. They told you to go, take this seriously.
Avatar f tn The pain on the lower right- make sure with a doctor you don't have appendicitis, but other than that, since your colonoscopy was negative, there's a strong possibility you are getting gas pockets building up in there. Have you tried simethicone and exercise when this happens or the knee chest?
Avatar m tn Things have been declining for Craig since November 2004, with lesions and brain atrophy since 2006. He had gone to Mayo Clinic, Mellen Center at Cleveland Clinic, National Institute of Health, and four other MS neurologists. Doctor shopping some would say, but I am a nurse and I wasn't going to let my husband go downhill without a fight. All of them saw the positive Romberg, the leg weakness, the loss of balance, fatigue, heat intolerance, etc.
900662 tn?1469393905 I don't see any financial incentive for insurance companies to avoid a cure, if the cure is cheaper than the treatment. That's why they often pay for birth control. It's sure cheaper than pregnancy, labor, delivery, and treatment of whatever the kid might develop in its lifetime. Drug companies, on the other hand, can obviously profit through people who use their product continually for the rest of their lives.
Avatar n tn The standard treatment for appendicitis is surgical removal of the appendix. SYMTOMS OF APPENDISITIS Early on, the most common symptom is an aching pain around your navel that often shifts later to your lower right abdomen. As the inflammation spreads to nearby tissues, the pain may become sharper and more severe. Eventually, the pain tends to settle in your lower right abdomen — near your appendix at what's known as McBurney point.
696755 tn?1236019912 The fourth day it was really bad and the pain was mainly toward my lower right side and it was a bit harder to walk. So I was brought to the hospital. All the doctors thought it was definitely appendicitis until they saw the completely normal x-ray and CT scan. And my white blood cell count was also normal. About 3 days later I was lying down about to go to sleep when I had this horrendous pain in my right side (the same place as before) and I burst into tears.
Avatar n tn I had been experiencing right pelvic pain for about a year that my internist thought was more of a chronic appendicitis. Then about 4 months ago the pain was at times severe which led to us trying to figure out the cause. My surgery was one week ago today and I feel great! It is so nice to be without all the pain! Good luck to you....I think I will try these massages myself to prevent future adhesions.

Avatar f tn I still may have my tube removed, however, the accupuncture, herbs, and massage show promise. The treatment I have chosen is expensive but it is a lot less expensive than a hysterectomy, even with my health insurance coverage. Plus, I feel healthier too.

Avatar m tn You can contact the Barral Institute and talk to them about a referral to an experienced person if you'd like to talk to a 'human being' instead of checking the website. This is not 'schlock' treatment. The techniques were developed by a French osteopath and are used extensively in Europe. They're only becoming more 'known' here in the U.S. as 'the doc' is becoming more well-known. I believe it was a year ago (?
Avatar n tn i was tested several times for a urinary tracy infection at the emergency room, i dont think they cultured it. i have been to many doctors including 2 mayo clinics. they said they tested me for everything, i dont know what everything is. i dont know how long i can continue to take this doctor has even precribed antibiotics for me. i ordered some on the internet but they ill take 11-20 days, maybe they will help. i believe you could still have some infection without testing positive.
Avatar n tn I have been having the same pain as you discribed above and Im being diagnosed with iritable bowl syndrom witch has no treatment and is said to be coused by stress. Whats funny is that I do not feel as if I have stress at all. My pain is on the lower left side of my body below my ribes and seems to come and go every day or every other day.The pain revels itself as a burning sinsation that seems to have a mind of its own as far as intensity goes.
Avatar n tn lower back MRI OK. Treatment is 50,000 units of D per week for 4 weeks and thereafter once a month. Been on it for 4 months. Feel at times like I was in accident.Have researched on the net, and still find it difficult to believe that this can cause this much suffering. Anyone familiar with anything like this?
Avatar n tn I've been going through this for over 15yrs now. Family thinks I'm hypochondriac doctor won't even give me t3's for the pain my throat is always swollen on one side. Done the gammit of allergy tests, ear docs, eye problems-floaters, ear aches from hell neck and jaw swollen all the time, headaches. reading all of these pages has actually given me some relief!
Avatar n tn been on a low-fat and bland diet for over one month (no ground beef, nothing fried, no oil, no mayo, no cream sauces, no butter, etc.). I still have symptoms daily and am always uncomfortable with belching, whether I have had a bland meal or even a glass of water. Symptoms last for hours on end. The newest symptom is diarrhea after meals, sometimes, when I have not even yet finished eating. I am really hoping that surgery is the answer and that we will not have to search for another cause.
Avatar n tn The others what ever they may ultimately be may be of more serious concern and require more attention, test, research and treatment which is or would be outside most of our parameters. I hope this helps.

Avatar n tn I have had diarrhoea for 3 days, can you tell me when it is likely to stop, I have taken (loperamide hydrochloride USP 2mg) Yesterday it was every 15 mins for 12 hours, When can i expect to eat again and what should i eat
Avatar n tn It seems interesting so far and it talks about alternative medicine, which I am willing to try since none of the medications seem to work and the Doctors can't give me an answer. My father just returned from the mayo clinic and they gave him a low residue diet to follow. That has been helping him with his digestive issues. Thank you for your time and information.
Avatar n tn I'm 41 years old non-smoker No history of migranes Current headaches (again, docs say stress induced but I have mine 80-90% of time). Has anyone had success with a Home treatment? (heat? ice?other)?
Avatar n tn For me its like bad gas in my lower abdomen except for my left testicle is hurting too when I urinate. It feels like someone is grabbing it and pulling down hard.
Avatar n tn The study showed that inhalation of 2 puffs of salbutamol shortened pain attacks in patients with severe proctalgia fugax compared with placebo (dummy treatment). Compared to the placebo, salbutamol inhalation shortened the duration of severe pain, especially in patients having prolonged attacks. There were only 16 people involved in this study so the the results need to be confirmed in larger studies.
