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 f tn The unstated objective of the 5-year “CFS” strategic research plan is to continue to study CFS as a stress-related disorder by following the false UK psychiatric model, which produced the dangerously flawed NICE Guidelines for CFS/ME - for vaguely defined “chronic fatigue” patients -and the funding of chronic fatigue clinics which are detrimental to M.E.patients and deprive them of the medical care that they would receive if M.E.was a recognised neurological disease.
Avatar f tn I don't know why they won't test for the CMV, however, Lyme's testing is very controversial and there are no medical authorities that will back any doctor who will go against the guidelines and test patients for chronic infection of Lyme disease.
181575 tn?1250202386 The American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases practice guidelines for the management of HCC recommend screening for HCC in the following patients with chronic hepatitis B: Asian men older than 40 years old, Asian women older than 50 years old, black patients over age 20 years, all patients with cirrhosis, and all patients with a family history of HCC. Asian hepatitis B carriers who lose HBsAg-positivity should continue to undergo surveillance indefinitely.

469720 tn?1388149949 family history good (both lived into their 90's, no early MI) no stroke bp good (should be better though, trying to find a doctor who will rx for it) lifelong low cholesterol no diabetes non smoker lots of exercise (3x/week, cyclist in summer, walk in winter) normal weight no claudication but I'm here, and even my doctor thinks my chest pains "could be" angina (vasospastic). He won't order further tests because of my "low cardiac risk"!!
475555 tn?1469307939 The reason I ask is because he's representing all Hep C patients in the US as a Board Member for the World Hepatitis Alliance, which is in violation of their guidelines which state that to be a full voting member or be chosen for the Board he must be a Hepatitis patient (which is also what Mr Gore said) and the organization must have chronic viral hepatitis as their primary area of activity. You don't know whether he has hepatitis?
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Tramadol Warriors, Many people have come here for many years, giving support and getting support. Because I still believe that Tramadol is unique in it's ... terror and torture of humans, this thread continues. The people who can understand what you are going thru are the people who have kicked it and there's people here who come back to lend a hand. You also will never need an understanding ear as much. You can do it. You can quit. You do not need to be a slave to Tramadol.
Avatar n tn Few examples- Heritable connective-tissue disorders,Ehlers-Danlos syndrome type IV,Fibromuscular dysplasia,Cystic medial necrosis,Marfan syndrome Spontaneous internal carotid artery dissection is a common cause of ischemic stroke in patients younger than 50 years and accounts for up to 25% of ischemic strokes in young and middle-aged patients. Now you could understand why you were tested for various antibodies.
Avatar n tn This problem comes and goes and, presently, is acute for me. Try researching neuropathy on the net - might give some leads.....
Avatar m tn But it does not mean that we should not supplement vit d3. It may be useles for the virus but fixes vit d defficiency that is beneficial for immune system.
Avatar n tn For the past 4 years I have been experiencing horrible symptoms. It seemed that the whole thing started as a sinus infection but then I went for a CT scan of sinuses and they were clear. I have been having symptoms of dizziness, head pain, shakiness and a spaced out kind of foggy feeling like i am watching my life from the outside - all day every day. There are some times for a couple of hours during the day that the symptoms may lift and give me a few moments to live- but not much.
Avatar n tn We are trying to get some idea of what to expect....I have posted on the liver forum...but decided to ask here as well. Thank you all for your time!
Avatar n tn any instructions for follow-up? did you get any meds? Seriously think about going to a naturopath for extra health support, get someone to call and drive you there. Also, go see your medical doctor if you feel that you have worsened. I got the flu shots on Nov 5th and there have been days that I felt that I went "backwards" and then I would improve again. Look at our original forum (Tingling after Swine Flu Vaccine) where there are over 150 comments for more feedback and suggestions.
Avatar n tn I am in my early twenties and have had problems with being persistantly tired. My hands and feet are almost always cold (in fact, they are right now), and I fall in and out of relatively mild depression. I have been told that carrying the thalassemia trait has no obvious symptoms, but I've been poking around forums a little bit, and the symtoms I experience seem to be fairly common.
Avatar n tn Hi everyone - I have just come across this forum - and would like to ask help and advice. I have been taking nurofen plus (ibuprofen + codeine sulphate 12.8 mg per tablet) for 5 years - I take about 24 tablets per day (all at once - like the feeling along with the pain killing effects) I must give these up - for I understand this is addiction - and must find another way to deal with pain. I guess nurofen is much like tylenol (2? 3? 4?) - dont know which one.
