Avatar n tn hello! I am a 41 y/o female who just came home from the hospital with a TIA. I was leaving movies and fell over twice, husband thought I got up to fast. I told him it was as if my feet weren't listening to my head. Didn't know that feet needed to be told to walk. I joked to him that it was just a "gravity storm." Needed help to car, was given seat belt to plug in and stared at it KNOWING I should know what to do with this common object yet had a black hole going on.
Avatar m tn i still haven't presented with any of the obvious symptoms such as bumps or warts on my penis, but i've experienced an on-again off-again burning sensation just inside of the tip of my penis. most of the time i would say it's simply irritating, though for a day or two about a week ago it did move up to what i would call painful.

Avatar n tn She is so exhausted that she can't fight no more against medical community in order to admit the origin of her symptoms and to push them to try to find a beginnning of solution. Is there any progress in the comprehension of the cause of these symptoms ? Are there some new treatments that appeared recently to counteract exhaustion and pains ? Do people group themselves in associations to better fight against this disaster ?
Avatar f tn Diabetes and hypertension have both been linked to larger-than-average size of hyperintense lesions in the central nervous system; of the two, however, only diabetes has been shown to increase the rate of growth of lesions. In some cases, like Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease which causes progressive dementia, the presence of hyperintense lesions can help lead to the proper diagnosis of the prion disease rather than categorize the illness as typical degenerative dementia.

This thread starts out with the apparent attempt to misinform.
Avatar f tn I have been on 100mg of Topamax since the end of April. I immediately experienced the loss of appetite. I seaked the advice of a naturopath to use it to my advantage because I had about 80 pounds to lose. I see him every Friday and since then, I have lost 43 pounds...:-) It has not been difficult. It seems like he weight is coming off on its own now. I don't crave anything. I'm hoping to reach my goal by January.
100019 tn?1335923317 Just wanted to throw that in there for Dale. Most of the time I just want to stay away from anything related to HCV, but after being so much a part of my life for 48 weeks I have a hard time letting go completely. These are the continuing sides I deal with 9 weeks post tx: 1. Muscle Cramps and Spasms (back) 2. Hip Joint aches - after sitting sometimes difficult to walk 3. Insomnia - since I'm off tx no more ambien 4. Thyroid problems 5.
Avatar f tn Well, as a result of being so big, I am now diabetic. I lost 45 lbs. prior to being diagnosed with diabetes - I was diagnosed & immediately put on insulin (a hormone) and gained 15 lbs in ONE week - so my net loss was only 30 lbs. So I'm now down to a manageable weight however, I want to lose another 20 lbs. or so but I have yet to lose weight by myself.
Avatar f tn Fever, pain , diet, sleep pattern, bathroom habits, fatigue, rash's ( I took pics of the rash ) Its hard for them to dispute facts written in black and white! I had been keeping these logs in a regular notebook and learn when the cat spilled my coffee all over them that perhaps i needed to discover a new outlet for my logs....which sent me in facebook's direction, I created a private group ...
Avatar f tn Saw this and wondered about its accuracy. Any opinons? It emphasizes IVDU as the principal boomer source (which may be true but seems too blanket a statement to account for many of us) and second, the rates in other countries are very high and may stimulate a rise here, due to increased travel, immigration, etc. HCV does not politely stop at geographical borders.

147426 tn?1317269232 Hi, I reread what I wrote last night and it came out all wrong. That's twice! that I have sounded harsh when I just meant to be responding. What I meant to say is that I came across a lot of variability of side effects when I read about the vaious meds. I did not mean to put your doc down, if I sounded like I was. Also it is clear that different people react differently on each of the drugs.
Avatar m tn "pth at minimum means you have normal/optimum vit d because pth responds to vit d (inversely).vitd25oh can be good to monitor vit d if your receptors are perfect but pth is better because it lowers only after vit d has attached receptors so in the end iPTH is the best indicator of vit sufficiency and vit d sufficiency means all the pros of having normal/good vit d levels and immune modulation" But a low level of PTH in the blood is known as hypoparathyroidism: http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar m tn Chris Kresser, I have read his works before and I can tell you they are NOT based on medical studies or trials. Let's understand who he is, Chris Kresser is a licensed Acupuncturist based in the Bay area that is trying to get a degree in Integrative Medicine (Holistic/Chinese discipline, not an MD). He has not been to medical school, is not going to medical school and is not a M.D, he specializes in writing articles that go against what he calls the "common medical myths".
Avatar f tn I didn't want to go here again because it is so painful but it is an important subject for women beginning a family and awareness. I believe docs do their best but there is not a lot of awareness of thyroid issues. Education rather than suing is what I'd like to see. This is an article I found that justifies my fears that my son may have had problems from my undiagnosed thyroid issues and which were hereditary - a low lying problem that was hard to pick up.

7827642 tn?1396962358 The nurse when getting my b/p and temp asked if i switched because of diabetes (sp)?? I told her no because my aunt works here...that scared me a little right there. I was 178 pre pregnancy weight (i think) and im 197 now at 21 weeks and 4 days. The doctor check the heart beat which she said was around 150 which is good she said. Then she was measuring fundemental height with a tape measure and said hmmmm the baby is measuring big.
921323 tn?1268679412 Put the money towards the health costs of the uninsured. Or, use it to fund research in diabetes, heart disease, or any of the other countless complications of obesity. But is it too early to admit defeat? If we had done the same for cholesterol medications or diabetes medications, or even smoking patches and pills, we’d be paying for it in countless ways. So is there something unique about developing medications for obesity?
Avatar n tn According to the National Institutes of Health, about half of diabetes sufferers have some form of neuropathy, but not all with neuropathy have symptoms. Peripheral neuropathy, which affects the arms and legs, is the most common type of diabetic neuropathy. Lou's laboratory specializes in finding and studying damage to large and small nerve fibers, the thin, branch-like threads through which signals are sent between the cell body and its terminal.
Avatar m tn many of the same symptoms for most of them. Same for HIV. Even typical symptoms of HIV almost always are due to other things. Elevated protein levels, especially mild ones like yours, usually are not signs of anything serious. Of course if you remain concerned about this lab result or any symptoms, continue to work with your doctor about the cause. But you can definitely stop worrying about HIV.
458072 tn?1291418786 Time for a goal-line stand on ObamaCare Urgent: Call your representative TODAY and urge him to vote "No" March 18, 2010 Despite the fact that over 60% of the American people want President Obama and congressional Democrats to tear up the monstrous health care bill and start all over, they seem determined to ram the government takeover of health care down our throats.

Avatar n tn Your Body Needs Iodine for More than Just Your Thyroid Dr. Flechas presents a number of interesting facts about iodine that is not widely known. For example, did you know that thyroid hormones are created not just in your thyroid, but also in a woman's ovaries (thyroid T2), and in the white blood cells of your bone marrow? Furthermore, iodine is not only required for proper function of your thyroid.
921323 tn?1268679412 Because HGH has not been well studied in the longer term in healthy individuals without deficiency or other medical indications, we just don’t know what will happen if you take it. There are reports of increased risk of diabetes, carpal tunnel syndrome, joint problems, and possibly heart disease. In the end, HGH – like many supplements – is being used by people as a substitute for making lifestyle changes. You can argue that doctors do this all the time.
Avatar m tn 1 In the first 37 years of my life I had many episodes of various kinds of emotional imbalance or disorientation, themselves of varying lengths and intensities, ranging from a euphoric, impetuous, expansive or high mood to a depressed, grey, low energy or despondent mood. Indeed the range of mood in these 37 years was extreme, but the complete/extreme range was rarely experienced. In these years I learned various self-monitoring skills as well as some self-reinforcing tactics.
