Avatar m tn This is Part 2 of a 110,000 word (270 page font-14 or 350 page font-16) longitudinal, retrospective and prospective account of my experience with bipolar disorder and some other mental health problems over 70 years:1943 to 2014. Notes: This is a personal and idiosyncratic, medical and clinical study of what some life-study students call a chaos narrative. This study focuses on an aspect of my life involving several mental health issues, mainly bipolar 1 disorder.
Avatar m tn 1 After all these years, my interest in fine-tuning my understanding, in enlarging my scientific knowledge of this disorder, is of a low order on my general scale of interests inspite, as I say, of any appearance to the contrary--as the evidence of writing this lengthy essay might indicate.
Avatar m tn 1 Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a neuropsychiatric disorder characterized by either obsessions (recurrent or persistent unwanted thoughts, images or impulses) or compulsions (repetitive behaviours or mental acts often performed to relieve anxiety or distress). The obsessions and compulsions of OCD cause significant distress to the afflicted individual. In my case the distress is minimal.
Avatar f tn Good for you on trying to recover from your eating disorder and for your one month without purging. Nobody could say without examining you what medical problems you have, so it might not hurt to see your doctor for a physical and tell him/her about your problems. He or she could also refer you to a dietician who can help you figure out a healthy diet to replenish nutrients and keep your weight stable. But the thing about eating disorders is they are usually a symbol of underlying emotions.
460185 tn?1326081372 I have a BP monitor at home and take my BP every day. Twice in about two weeks, I have seen the symbol for an irregular heartbeat. Both times, when I took my BP right after and during the day, there was no irregular heartbeat symbol. There have been other times when I've had strange readings like moving when I'm not or that the machine was not plugged in when it actually was. Is this something I should be concerned about?

Avatar n tn I have also been told craving sweets is common. I do crave sweets a bit but I am very aware of what I am eating and keep a journal so if I gain any weight I will know and then will be able to make a change. Weigh yourself often, keep a journal and don't panic if you start to crave something because it will pass. Many people don't gain weight and instead they loose so try not to worry to much.
Avatar n tn One interesting note is that ribavirin-induced hemolytic anemia cannot be treated by eating iron rich foods or taking iron supplements. susan400 -- I thought it was the Neupogen that could make your bones ache--that's what my hemotologist said. Are you taking that too? Still, if you are very sensitive I would think the Procrit might make your bones ache. It does, after all, encourage the bone marrow to make new RBC.
724734 tn?1230944872 as opposed to physical, but whether that's anxiety, ADD, depression, depersonalization, post traumatic stress disorder or something else is hard to say. I tried taking Lexapro for a short while which may have helped a bit, but I stopped about a month in since it completely killed my libido and that wasn't even remotely acceptable to me. Has anyone else experienced similar symptoms? Is this all in my head or are there physical disorders that can result in these feelings?
Avatar n tn I was even sent specifically to a hemotologist, and tested for just about every known blood disorder know to man. I told them that I was diagnosed with HCV back in 95', and I was told by my treating Dr's at the time, that I DID NOT HAVE HCV.. I asked if they where positive, and again, I was told that according to my labs, I did not have the virus. I thought I got off easy, and that all the stories of people clearing on their own was true. I thought I was free and clear.
Avatar f tn Well it didn't I was took to the hopital 24 hours later still with all these symptoms and was told it was serotion syndrom and sent home..I lost all kinds of weight I went for almost 2 weeks without eating and barely drinking and walking constantly day and night I was wired up. I was scared to be left alone I didn't shower for 3 days I was told. I didn't realize that at the time that's how messed up I was.
Avatar m tn My symptoms began a year ago when I quit smoking and began healthy eating habits; more vegetables, less fat, more whole grains and less white flour products, more water and less caffeine. I joke that I felt better when I smoked. I’m also in the fifth year of menopause, which has its own set of similar symptoms, and should also not be considered as the principle reason for symptoms described on this page.
Avatar f tn In looking for whats the cause, I've seen a lot of things, but I don't think I have a sleep disorder, because I sleep great. I've never taken drugs, prescription or non. One message board mentioned that its merely a nutritional deficiency thing, so I'm going to try some multi vitamins. That doesn't seem like it could be it, but i'll try about anything. And if that doesn't work, I'm going to have my head examined.
Avatar n tn Lots of green veggies all last week too in anticipation for starting the cleanse. I have been reading about eating more raw fresh veggies and fruits as helpful with digestive enzymes that are often lacking in processed foods and fast food, etc. I forgot where I read it now, but I saw information regarding having a blocked bile duct in the liver that can contribute/cause digestive problems.
Avatar f tn and/or if you do eat healthy/whole foods your body may not be absorbing nutrients which can be due to food allergies. You can get simple bloods tests to test for thyroid disorder, test for vitamin/mineral deficiency such as B & D, hormone levels and also get an IgE blood panel for food allergies. It all seems to come back to our gut. All of these are fairly simple to regulate! Good luck to all of you! Hope you can get this figured out!
369912 tn?1229653690 Speaking about eating.... LOL. I just had a darn good taco salad. LOL. What I have been going through lately, and I don't know if this is normal or not.... LOL. I will get really hungry and when I eat, I only eat about a cup full and I am stuffed. LOL. Like this morning, I made eggs, hash browns, and corned beef hash and I ate the eggs and I was stuffed. I couldn't eat anymore. I don't know what to think. LOL. It makes me worry if my baby is getting enough nutrients because I can't eat much.
Avatar n tn hey now im new on this and am only 15 but yesterday i had a great day saw the super bowl and everything was alright till night i fell realy tired and slept quite early like 10 or so.
940391 tn?1255758976 Just had another skin biopsy three weeks ago and came back pre-cancerous (lentiginous junctional nevi with architechural disorder, moderate cytologic atypia (dysplastic nevus) according to shave biopsy. I hope that our Doctors are correct and these are nothing but I know how it feels to have to worry about it too. Good luck to both who post on here and God Bless!!!
