Avatar n tn They will send us home after 2 days with hospice care. I will take care of her most of the time. Can anyone give me advice how I can make her happy? What can I do for her? How I can prepare my self for the end? I really want to be strong but I can't. Thank you everyone and wish you guys happiness and health.
544292 tn?1268886268 Honestly, it was as if they just didn't care. I was treated with such cavalier ignorance that it makes me feel a little bit sick for people who can't stand up for themselves and who can't get off Tramadol. I'm a smart woman, but I detoxed off EVERYTHING else, before even considering that Tramadol might be my problem. It never ever occurred to me. EVER. Now I see an empty script bottle and it make me nauseous! Anyhow.
Avatar n tn I initially experienced numbness in my foot. Eventually that alleiviated and then I started to feel stiffness in my calfs in both legs.I have been tested for lupus,MS, Thyroid, and arthritis. However the tests came back negative. Advise if you know anything else.
Avatar n tn One of my first thoughts I had when I started feeling bad a couple years ago was that I had a parasite, because this all started after I went to the doctor for a small rash and he said it was a fungal infection after looking at it under the microscope. I also have athlete's foot that has never gone away even with prescription medicine.
551343 tn?1506834118 Hello Mrs A A forum where limbolanders can meet is long overdue, well done. My MS was discovered nearly ten years ago so that is what we consider my official diagnosis date. HOWEVER, we suffered through limbo because the neurologist I was with for years, whom I trusted, subscribed to the archaic notion that patients should not be told and didn't tell us. We have since discovered that this was a common scenario decades ago but, unbelievably, is still happening today and not just to us.

Avatar n tn It lasted about 6 months, the first month I told noone then spoke to my mom about it, we went to my doctor he did a pregnancy test, but I assured him I was not because I am a virgin which was true, they gave me many blood tests an ultrasound, xrays, urine tests and nothing would show, finally my doctor gave me pills for a person with an ulcer, which he ruled out, but it worked after about a month I started to get back to normal. I am also on birth contorl pills to regulate my period.
Avatar n tn Then immediately following this finger pain I felt pain in my right foot at the joint of my middle toe. I have no idea what causes this and both of my siblings report similar type of pain issues. Friends think this is quite strange. As a teenager, everyone called these "growing pains" but I am 30 years old and don't believe this title still applies. Any ideas on possible causes? A friend of mine recommended acupuncture but of course I cringe at the thought of needles.
Avatar n tn I am 37 years old and in the past week have experienced two bursting events. After the first, which was in my foot right behind the toe line (anyone else get one in the foot?), I convinced myself it was a bug bite or a hard hit, although I couldn't recall either occuring. The second happened yesterday on the back of my right hand at the base of the 3rd finger. The swelling across the 3 center knuckles was so large I thought it would pop right there!
530191 tn?1214166411 Like most of you, I was daignosed with hoshimotos after my first child and am currently on synthroid, zyrtec and santac combo in the evening which has definitely helped with the severity of the breakouts but, hasn't emilinated them. I plan to see Dr. Kapplan in the next few weeks so, will post what I find but, please add any information you may think will help. Most frustrating thing ever!!!
Avatar n tn After the craziness I went through last year, I changed doctors, breast surgeon and facility and have been very happy with my care since the change. I was reading some else's post from last year stating they've never had a normal mammogram. Neither have I. In the past I thought they were being very conservative because my mother had bc, but reading everyone's experiences, what we're all going through sounds like the norm. Crazy!
Avatar n tn I am on 24mg...I have tried to go down to 18mg but I felt too sick. I plan on reducing by 2 mg/week until I hit 18mg...then I will decrease by 1mg/week. I might have to do every 2 weeks at the lower doses. I wish I could come up with a magic solution but discomfort is inevitable. Under 15mg is going to be hard but 0mg will be interesting to say the least. It doesn't hit you until you have taken nothing for a couple of days due to the long life of methadone.
Avatar f tn My grandmother survived the fire, but had a tracheoscapy and is home suffering with tracheal stenosis. My sister and I are taking care of her and looking for doctor's second opinion on whether or not she needs surgery. Yes, I have been under stress in the last year. I desire to get answers to begin correcting whatever is wrong with me. Not knowing is worse. Dragging on hurts as well.
Avatar n tn So please if anybody has gotten more info. or thinks of something else that may be related post it. I plan to do as much research as I can from home. I will let you all know if I come up with anything. Thanks for the input so far.
Avatar n tn antibiotics that are prescribed spec. 4 bv will only treat bv diffrent antibiotics only work for the ailment theyre prescribed 4 however ant/bio will alot of times cause a yeast infection. they even cause a yeast infection in my mouth sometimes!
Avatar f tn So, what dose did everyone here have their success? And what type of diet/eating plan and exercise plan did you do to help it along? I'm desperate to lose 40 lbs (half of which I gained on Zoloft-no longer taking). PLEASE respond if you had any weightloss on this drug, I'm very curious. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!
Avatar n tn she showed me with a mirror all the spots in my vagina that were red and irritated. her plan is to treat the yeast infection first and then to heal the tear. i'm supposed to continue to use the estrogen cream and then use a salve of essential rose oil on top.
Avatar n tn I am 36 & married. Let me start by saying that I have not been prone to yeast infections or BV. I am a redhead so my skin is sensitive, so frequent oral or vaginal sex can make me irritated but nothing like a true infection. I have my periods around the 20th of each month and they last from 5-7 days. I ovulate at the beginning of the month, during ovulation I have a lot of discharge for about 2 days. I did not have strep B during either of my pregnancies.
Avatar n tn I have an eye doctor appointment this saturday to check my eyes out again and an appointment with my primary care in the beginning of January. I am really at the point where I want to tell the primary care to do whatever tests he has to do to figure this out. Whether it be another MRI, CT Scan, whatever. No one should feel this horrible from the time they wake up till the time they go to bed. It is so debilitating.
503727 tn?1210442710 Hey sorry tocome in on your guys convo but I too suffer from the same thing I think something is wrong and cant take care of it. I think the worst and scared to go out. I wanted to say that xanax sucks I took it and didn't work, plus your on the smallest dosage of it so maybe you should ask you pcp to up the dosage. I am trying to find a anxiety med that works because I get no relief from the ones I have had so far. But as for you, you are not alone. Get back at me.
