Diet to overcome weakness

Common Questions and Answers about Diet to overcome weakness


Avatar n tn I was an avid walker, walking 5 miles a day and I started with this odd feeling in my knees and thighs.. I went to my Dr. had every blood test known to mankind and all were normal. Had an MRI to rule out MS or any other neurological disease and all was normal. Went to see my neurologist and he said my exam was perfect. I am still scared I have ALS or something like that. He said I did not. He could find no findings of this disease with me.
Avatar f tn That diet is very similar to the Swank diet from Dr. Swank here is Portland. I was noticing that one diet eliminates gluten and claims to improve MS, while most of the others encourage all whole grains and claim to reverse or improve MS. It would be interesting to dredge up all the big diets and print their recommendations here so we would have it for comparison. They all encourage eating whole foods and eliminating or lowering red meat and dairy.
256349 tn?1189759437 I don't really know what phase 2 and 3 are because I don't know much about the HCG diet. I am trying to get my body in shape to loose weight and I feel after years of constipation, this should be my first step. I have just gotten in the state of mind to really make a change. Thanks for your help.
251922 tn?1193786078 That is right in line w/ what Dr. S. said it should be. I can not wait to expand to the phase 3 diet however I plan to follow that close as well becuse Dr. S says it is crucial for long term success. Just want to share this as I found it so awsome. I have a off road race truck with a 5 point seatbelt system that was set to my size. I got in the truck today and the belt was over 7 inches loose !! Totally unbelivable...............................I'm shrinking fast,.
Avatar n tn New doctor says if ANA comes back postive it might show a connective tissue disorder so I don't know I feel very helpless in away because somehow someway someone ought to be able to tell me what is happening to my body. Please some info!!!!
Avatar f tn Today I spent 7 hours at the Cancer Hospital. I had a lot of things to overcome today. I stayed calm and loose and it all turned out okay. If I allow myself to get frustrated it can be a very unpleasant day. I have learned to relax. There is a great deal in life we have little control over. I can either get ruffled or relax. I choose now to relax. I suffered a lot when I was first diagnosed with MS because I was sweating everything. If I get out of bed today that is a really good day.

545538 tn?1295995617 Nevertheless, according to tedious research, certain predicators are pro and others are contra. It would be in everyones interest to try to overcome the negative predicators, if possible. Of course one cannot change ones age, race, gender... But there are some other factors one can work on prior to and while on tx. It has been established that i.e. diabetes, low platelets, and other factors can counteract or lessen the outcome of tx.
Avatar f tn After a day at the office with the ac on, I have severe headaches, swelling in my eyes, pain in limbs. When I walk, i experience severe weakness and sometimes have to sit down for a minute. I am 58 years old. I began to notice that my problems were worse than m daughters. They are not home as much as me and since we do not use the ac at home, weekends are definitely helpful for recuperation. Sometimes when it is really bad, I spend Saturday in bed and take frequent hot baths.

Avatar m tn As a result of a potent compound called Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA) extracted from the Garcinia fruit, Garcinia Cambogia Go makes weight loss simple. HCA has turned out to be thought to be a dual-action fat busting miracle. This is because it may help fight extra weight through two distinct and effective methods. HCA suppresses appetite and increases metabolism. These two weight loss measures are necessary to the prosperity of this potent fat busting system.
Avatar f tn it went good for a couple of days but now she is out and wants me to take her to the pharmacy to pick up more so to continue the weaning process. I understand that is very painful during withdrawals and that is when the addict is coming out craving her fix but I am having a hard time being tolerant of that side of her. I miss my mom and just want to help her get better. is there anyone who knows / has any advise on the best way to handle this?
Avatar n tn I wouldn't have the opportunity to let you all know of his greatness and share how we are all going to overcome this. I truly believe that we go through some things that we don't understand just to see his glory and to know he can do anything. We are put on this earth to serve Him and that's what I'll do till the day I die. Now, saying all that here is what I believe... I am no doctor, but this is what I think we need to do. I feel it is some sort of parasite thing.
Avatar n tn Do you think us overweight girls just don't know how to follow a diet plan? I've run out of plans. So who do I trust and listen to? Certainly not people like you that only shame those with real problems losing weight. I am a college graduate but one of the things I learned was to question "authority and scholarship". Anyone who has something to gain from giving advice needs to be scrutinized. Wise up and back off. Everyone approaching this blog is an individual.
Avatar f tn First, I am morbidly obese. I'm unable to exercise due to extreme pain, etc. and it's depressing to not be able to do normal, everyday things without pain. The first question she asked me was "Have you ever considered lapband surgery?" I immediately knew where she was going with that question. According to her my previous spells of vertigo, feeling like I'm going to fall out of a chair when I'm just sitting there, and having to walk with a cane is all because I'm fat.
Avatar f tn Sharp pains all over body, cracking of all joints, muscle weakness, fatigue,even sharp pains in my ear and chest pain. Went to every specialist possible and all blood tests come back normal. Saw ENT and ear came back normal. Went to neuro and he basically said its stress( I am not stressed out but this is causing me to stress). Saw Endocrine and he told me at the end of my visit "Don't schedule a follow up, ill call you". Saw a cardiologist and it came back normal.
Avatar f tn There is hope, The drugs won't clear her system for 6 months after treatment and then with the proper supplements and diet she will hopefully begin to heal. I will pray for your aunt every day. All the best to you, your husband and your aunt.
Avatar m tn hi Please tell me how to overcome from the bad effect of masterbation.i have problam of trasparent liquid with urine....
Avatar n tn It doesn't seem to be related to anxiety or panic attacks. It just will happen. For no apparent reason. It's just another reason why I can't accept the anxiety diagnosis. Also, I have shortness of breath that happens out of the blue. For example, I was just brushing my teeth and started to feel so out of breath. This is crazy. I was just brushing teeth, not stressed about anything or feeling any anxiety. But once the shortness of breath happened my mind goes nuts.
Avatar f tn Generally this is due to increased secretion of insulin from the pancreas. This can be overcome by increasing fiber in diet. Along with reduced insulin secretion this delays gastric emptying. Drugs like octreotide, cholestyramine or proton pump inhibitors such as lansprazole help slow down digestion. At times surgery is required where Roux-en Y gastrojejunostomy is done. Please discuss this with the surgeon who performed the bypass and get this treated. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar n tn I get dizzy at the most inopportune time, and also get very sleepy when I'm reading, and when I finish reading, my vision is very blurry. Could this possibly be dehydration, and poor diet, or are we all just waking up to the fact that this is how it will be for the rest of our lives? I don't like it one bit. I also hear a "whining" sound in my left (and sometimes right) ear. Go to: http://www.****.*** to listen to the sound I hear all the time...
Avatar n tn I try and try over and over to yawn (causing me to get head aches), and finally accomplish it just to need to yawn again. I am a sleepy person all the time, but the straining to yawn thing makes me crazy! I also have increasingly bad short term memory problems (at only 25), could this be connected to the yawning, and lack of oxygen to the brain? could I have asthma? thank you so much for any help you can give me.

Avatar f tn I am trying my best to eat everything gluten free but somehow, I still get the muscle weakness and a little bit of nausea when I eat certain foods. Now I get unbalanced when I make sudden movements and when am standing still or sitting leaning forwards. Anyone who has any idea what am talking about please let me know...

Avatar f tn Love Tswana xxx HEALING CRISIS The Road to Better Health by Walter Last I routinely recommended to my patients right on their first visit to adopt a high-quality, low-allergy diet. When they came back two or three weeks later, they often said that they feel much better now but a week ago they had a cold. When I asked about the symptoms they turn out to be mainly a profuse mucus discharge, sometimes also diarrhoea, but rarely are there signs of a real infection.
Avatar f tn You won't feel hungry but try and have regular nutritious meals. Drink plenty of water. -The best way to overcome depression, in my experience, is to participate. Being more active will improve our mood, energy levels, motivation and self-confidence. -Be patient. The most important thing you could do is to be open and honest with your doctor and to follow their advice. (Not blindly though!) Take care. I respect the doctor on this forum and I expect he'll give good advice.
