1936411 tn?1333835449 uses light weights, lots of squats, ab work, and working on arm and leg strength. I adapt the degree of difficulty for me, hang out in the back of the room and enjoy every minute. This is my third year of doing this - it hasn't helped with weight gain or anything cardiovascular, but I do have good muscle tone and strength. The other class is Tai Chi, which I absolute love and so does my neuro. It works so well with focusing balance and energy in different ways and I really benefit from it.
Avatar n tn Is there anyone out there that has found help for Lymphedema of the arm. Its bean 6 months for me and I am very frustrated.
211940 tn?1267884866 I have had this pain in both arms midway between elbow & shoulder on the outside of the arm also a very painful to touch, with pressure in the middle of the outside of the arm. I have had this for about 3 months in my left arm & about 10 months in my right arm.
739070 tn?1338607002 I just returned from PT where my fantastic therapist noted that I have muscle atrophy in my left arm. She noted this from across the room while she observed me doing my hand and arm exercises. She measured the left forearm area in two places and it is 1/2 inch smaller than my right. The left is weaker and I have fasciculations in my hands as well. We discussed new exercises and the fact that the muscle atrophy may continue despite exercises to improve strength.
Avatar n tn A few weeks ago, I also tried some stretching exercises, to the point where I could feel pain, but my arm only hurt worse the next few days when I tried to reach with it. Perhaps stretching exercises are an answer, but I am afraid to make matters worse by forcing things when I don’t know the cause of this. When I press in around the surface skin of my shoulder or upper arm, nothing hurts, so whatever is causing this is deep down inside.
Avatar n tn Vanessa, Thanks for you input. The photo is pending admin approval so I guess it is not visible yet. Perhaps you could revisit this thread and see if the photo gives you a more definitive answer as to his condition.
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 Of course now I am far more panicked and worried. Its been a few months now and the problems persist. I have an EMG for my left arm tomorrow, but something tells me its circulatory in some way, I'm really hoping that they can find this problem. I'll keep you posted, it calms me down a bit knowing im not alone, thanks everyone.
7149587 tn?1388559096 Traditional exercise advice is not for fat people! I just need help safely shrinking my arm and thigh fat. When voicing your opinion please keep in mind that I am 5' 9", 240 lbs and have lower back and ankle problems.
Avatar m tn With me, I can make the spots appear by blinking, looking from light to dark, but also by getting something small like the end of the arm of my glasses and waggling it in front of my eyes. Can you see yours? The only reason I ask is that I remember reading that blinking to induce a symptom is unreliable as it distorts the eyeball.
Avatar n tn Sorry for all the questions, just curious. To answer yours, if the epidurals do not work on me, my doctor said I have no other choice but to have the surgery. I have been reluctant to get the epidurals because of the sensitive area. But, my doctor has reassured me they are done by anesthesiologist who specialize in just pain management, so I will be safe. What was your experience with the injections? Cheers!
1018490 tn?1345906863 You did the right thing by visiting the doctor as soon as possible and test for swelling, for clots or similar.
Avatar f tn I have been doing the neck exercises since the day of the surgery. They told me that as soon as I could walk, I could go home, so I got up and walked! One aspect of the anesthesia on me was it made me claustrophobic. I could not stand having the pressure leggings on. So they required me to be walking from day 1, and I was discharged the day after my procedure. Your questions about what exactly my surgery was reminded me that I don't know, exactly. I sent a message (just now) to Dr.
620923 tn?1452919248 He said there is no treatment for EDS, so there is nothing for him to do. As for the folks discussing the pool. I go to the pool a lot these days which is funny because I really don't like swimming or pools. However, the pool at the physical rehab place is only 4 feet deep and is kept at 95 degrees. It really feels good to move around in there. I can move in there much better than I can on land. It's ll good until I have to get out of the pool and then gravity hits hard.
4186692 tn?1350826888 It was removed prior to me leaving the hospital. The seering pain upon peeing for the next few days was something else, but it finally got better too. Heartache: I felt this as well. I was an intense ache in my heart that would cause me to pause until it.subsided. My wife would look worried as I bent over a little and instinctively clutched my chest until it subsided. Ibuprofen helped immensely during the recovery period. I ad 17 burns for my ablation.
Avatar m tn antibiotics are delivered to the site of infection by the bloodstream. There is some blood flow in the sinuses, but for many people it’s not sufficient to deliver enough of the drug to kill the large number of bacteria in the infected sinuses. You may also have learned that saline irrigation works a little bit to relieve your sinusitis, but not enough. The reason is even simpler: gravity.
572651 tn?1531002957 being the operative word) and have a massage from time to time which is heaven and is my reward for my effort in the dreaded gym! This is the longest that I have ever kep any exercise up and I know is helped by seeing a trainer once a month who keeps me on tract and looks at my month's efforts which are all recorded on a special key/computer system which is much too high tech for me to understand!
987762 tn?1331031553 ) but because I'm asthmatic could not take it. I have Xanax for when it's bad I take one at night, and the next day my arm is much better. I do not have an anxiety problem but this is an anti-anxiety drug that helps calm my tremor. My boyfriend recently told me that when I sleep my legs "go" and sometimes my arm. He means they shake in my sleep. Not sure what's going on there, luckily I'm sleeping :P He says "your legs were really going, what were you dreaming about?
Avatar f tn It also helps to see friends, and to go out for a short walk in the fresh air. Gently exercises in the swimming pool are also good, not only for the physical side of things, but also mentally too. I know that when you feel depressed you don't feel like doing anything and just want to sleep. Best wishes.
Avatar m tn So for what it is worth, I can trace my pain not to a mattress, not to my kidney function or other reasons - but specifically to doing 4 days of plank exercises with other basic exercises. I stopped the morning after noticing the pain but have still had it for the last 4 days, getting worse it seems each day - to the point that it takes all my effort to roll out of bed in the morning.
Avatar n tn Thank you for the advice, I'm wondering why my primary care physician didnt recommend anything similar (probably because most people don't want to hear that). I am going to try to lose the weight. I still feel like something else is the cause (not sure why) I have been this weight for probably 4 years now, so it seems odd that it would just come out of the blue.
Avatar n tn If not he will be sending me to an ENT for scoping and a CT scan. I am in the Tampa, FL area for those who are asking.
Avatar f tn I was told it was fine for me to exercise, so I went to the gym today and spent thirty minutes on the treadmill...walking on a light incline, with about 40% of the time spent jogging. While I was jogging, my heart rate rose to 200bpm. I felt pretty normal...well, normal for me exercising, which means I felt like ****, but it wasn't anything different. I left the gym and went to work (new job), where I stand for 7-8 hours straight.
Avatar f tn I am a fellow itchy upper arm sufferer or WAS, let's hope. Itched and itched mostly at night for 9 weeks now. Was reading the forum blogs about BRP and neck issues. Decided to revisit my upper cervical chiropractor. I was "out" meaning the Atlas bone was found not level so he adjusted me using the Sonic method. Only a few specialist advanced orthogonal chiropractors do this. Most use other methods that don't work as precisely as sonic.
Avatar f tn I had a friend last year that could not for the life of him understand the need to not hear my phone ringing. When I didn't respond to an email one day (only that day) he called my phone a total of 34 times within a five hour period. I couldn't turn my phone off because at the time my niece was undergoing her valve grafting of her heart.
Avatar n tn Not like second hand smoke or smoke on clothes. It seem deep in the nasal cavity. Mine has been happening for 7 months and it last for 5 mins and comes back every so often. Sometimes it is really strong that I can almost taste it. I am seeing a neurologist on the 25th of July. A little history on me: Ex smoker about 15 years ago and on metropol for high blood pressure, and my age is 43.
Avatar n tn try that ball thing , when I bounce I can feel it pulling at my sinuses, and then later I can feel it drain down the back of my throat which means it on the move ! I have NOT taken any meds at all for this ,I'm just trying to get rid of it naturally. one good thing is ,,look at what most of the posted problems are about on here lately . sinus problems ear nose and throat. I think it's a time of the year thing too .
Avatar m tn Later I considered it was the same arm my GP treated me for bursitis in twice in the month prior I would realize later but don't know if important. After the arm pain got bad things got scary (after about an hour?). I started having chest pain. It got really hard to breathe. It felt like my chest filled up with fluid. I've never had anything like these symptoms. I made my brother sit up with me for a few hours until my GP opened.
Avatar m tn Even if the anxiety is in the back of my mind, it's still in there, waiting to creep out and make my life hell for the rest of the day. There is no magic or mystery of why I feel like this and why lots of other people have anxiety issues after a night of less than healthy drinking. It is the plain and simple fact that my drinking habits are starting to take a toll on my physical and mental health. And that is something that I don't want to live with. I want to be healthy and happy.
975514 tn?1325001538 Until this week when I suddenly got a terrible calf muscle cramp in the night. The pain was so bad it made me physically ill and for the past 2 days my entire leg is aching as if the muscle was bruised. I have been told to take Magnesium and Potassium to combat these cramps. I had them years ago (which confirms my suspicion that I've had Fibro for longer than I thought) but they've been absent for a long time.
