Avatar n tn Onlyinsulin option is? Going back to using the older insulins ( R & NPH) and that would Not be a good thing, they caused alot of Hypo's and very difficult to use.. As for the Test stips ? You can try using a Generic brand ( Wal Greens, Wal mart's, etc.) their stips are about 40% Less, but ck. for accuracy while you still have your currentmeter and 10-20 strips left.. Your stuck between being to " wealthy and Not poor enough", been there , done that myself for several yrs..
173975 tn?1216261375 I'm not sure if it is SSI or SSD, I think Avid Reader has a better grasp on that than I do, you may post to her for clarification. I hope I didn't overstep my bounds by suggesting you apply for disability, but if you paid into it, you should get it back when you need it, and though it isn't much, it's yours.
429155 tn?1205676864 Just after Christmas 07 my 40mg 2x a day started, then I caught a virus, and was very ill, and it just would not go away, nausea, aches and pains all over, I blamed it all on this virus, never really suspecting the real culprit, yes you know don't you, it was because I had cut down on the oxycontin, and my body was craving it, this went on for 7 weeks, until one day it dawned on me what it was, by this time I had become tired all the time, getting up early and doing nothing, then backwards an
Avatar m tn Was on Naproxen, Co-Codamol 30-500's and Tramadol for the pain, one day my back went and couldnt walk for about 8 hours, after that it got gradually better (as in pain was less) but developed the numbness now the wasting calf muscle!! Can anyone help me on this, what I need to do, exercises etc to rebuild the muscle or lessen the numbness. Does anyone know if the numbness has replaced my severe sciatic pain?
Avatar f tn I truly understand how hard it can be to be in his shoes and in yours. Out of concern for how my wife has been doing through my illness I have spent a lot of time reading and talking to other caregivers. The withdraws can surely be causing some of the anger and hostility in combination with the blood toxins (ammonia and manganese) effecting his brain and causing the confusion.

Avatar n tn ago I got awakened by our mutual friend; writhing pain in both inner thighs for about 10 min. I’m an engineer, not a doctor so take all this with due caution. After studying the nerve diagram and anatomy charts, I think it’s a form of sciatica, an irritation of the nerves in the lower back.
147426 tn?1317269232 If you have been worked up for MS and have a diagnosis - Whatever that dianosis is - Would you post below and add your story? Thank you. I am a 55 year old, white female. Seven years ago I was hit by intractable vertigo and, despite being treated by one of the world's foremost experts in vertigo, was forced to retire from being a pediatrician. I had very complicated problems in the inner ear on the left. But, eventually the problems spread to my right ear also.
Avatar f tn The tremor may be so exaggerated that it becomes difficult for you to do normal activities. Essential tremor is made worse by the same factors that exaggerate normal tremor, such as when you are stressed, anxious, or angry, or if you do strenuous activity, drink caffeine or take some prescribed medicine. Essential tremor is most likely to affect your arms and hands, but it can affect your face and upper body, and sometimes your voice.
Avatar n tn He is type 2 diabetic for the last 2 years but his taking of all his tablets is very intermittant. Any advice or suggestions would be welcome. He is 65, dying and not prepared to fight at all. I'm broken hearted.
Avatar n tn Turns out i got very addicted, even if I didn't hurt by the third day I needed it. I have been in hell for the past 4 weeks, monday will be five weeks clean. It has been so hard espically with my illness which has made it harder. Three weeks I didn't eat sleep and hurt constantly with hot and cold chills. I'm still having many side effects but hopefully they will end soon. Good luck to everyone with this problem. It's hard but we can do it.
551343 tn?1506834118 I am currently undergoing yet another diagnosis and I am trying to use what I have learned in the past to get what I need. I have paid thousands and thousands of dollars for tests this past summer but cannot see the cardiologist again until late January. Unacceptable. I am ill now and need help NOW. I am not going to sit still on this one. It is not an easy thing, being one's own advocate, but it is also not easy being chronically ill.
604197 tn?1292308636 I suffered a head and lower back injury from a fall in April of 2007 while building the new US Embassy in Bagdad Iraq. I had a skull fracture accompanied by internal bleding of the head and brain for about two weeks. Blood came out of my ears, nose, and mouth for about the same amount of time. The Military Hospital only kept me overnight,primarily to make sure that I didn't go into a comma, then released me with 10 days bedrest to recover in my living quarters.
Avatar n tn Thanks for your post ponyshel and we wish you to recover step by step as we try to do for my wife. Actuallt, Actually, we are focusing on coenzyme Q10. I made a review on Medline about the benefical effects of Q10 and some of them can focus on the same symptoms as what you or my wife have. In a recent paper, a Spanish team observed that Q10 blood distribution was altered in patients with fibromyalgia (Cordero et al, Clin Biochem. 2009 May;42(7-8):732-5).
Avatar n tn I have asked a friends husband if I look attractive , he said that I'm a pretty woman and I should not put up with this and that I can have a man that would love me and be sexulay turned on by me. I feel like I'm not woman enough for him. I don't not feel sexy. He wounders why I don't smile and why I don't feel loved. I wish he would touch me! I'm very sexualy attracted to him. I think about haveng sex with him and I even dream about sex.... Dosen't even cuddle me.
