Avatar n tn I am having a hell of a time trying to quit smoking. Heres the thing, I quit smoking eleven years ago along with all of the street drugs I did. I smoked cigarettes for 15 years, and when I went through detox and rehab I started again. I feel like I want to quit, but after all I went through giving up my opiates, this is the strange part, I don't want to let go of the cigarettes. I am wondering if my addicted brain is somehow trying to keep any kind of addiction going on.
Avatar f tn I decided to find hundreds of reasons to quit. Its all about quality of life. quality of life is better without smoking than with smoking.

It grew below my sternum and I had to have it taken out by cutting through it was so big and it just happened to have cancer in it. the quit smoking forum is great too. There is lots of support and caring folks over there as well. BTW I got hypnotized. last November.

Avatar f tn 6098-101. Heavy smoking and liver. Smoking causes a variety of adverse effects on organs that have no direct contact with the smoke itself such as the liver. It induces three major adverse effects on the liver: direct or indirect toxic effects, immunological effects and oncogenic effects. Smoking yields chemical substances with cytotoxic potential which increase necro-inflammation and fibrosis.
Avatar n tn Ice your areas before you get poked. Also, keep a couple of those large Heat/Ice gel packs in the freezer and try to get them on you as soon as you can afterwards. My friend and I take cold packs with us to endure the drive home. Also, my nurse applies witch hazel with cotton balls right after. Take extra-strength 45 minutes prior-no anti-inflammatories of any kind (Ibuprofin, etc.).
Avatar n tn Are there any harmful long-term effects of DXM? For example, if you take one bottle of Robitussin every month. Also, is there a difference between the cough syrup and the gel caps?
Avatar n tn Hi all, I had a stroke when I was 21 years old, It was a small stroke and due to my age and stamina only took me 4 months to recover, since then I have been on no medication. I am now 30 years old and now looking back have begun to realise that the problems I am experiencing could be due to TIA's and side effects of the stroke. I am very "up and down", have (which is the opposite to some) very bad hearing.
Avatar n tn Would you have some testimonies, books or adresses to advice us in order to be updated in the comprehension of these sides effects and their potential treatments ? Any information will really be of great help, With my best regards.
Avatar n tn Baudelaire was right. However, all things in moderation (including moderation) has always been my motto. I have grown my own, but that is not practical at present. And I do know how to cook with it. And my short term memory is so far gone that I have enough trouble driving as it is. The AD my PA prescribed for sleep (trazodone) has a bunch of bad effects. (OK, "men with erections lasting longer than 24 hours should seek medical assistance" sounds OK, but the rest are scary.
Avatar f tn Although I vaccinated my 1 st child and no side effects...I refuse to vaccinate my daughter... I have read to many horror stories of vaccinated babies..I believe the shots are DANGEROUS!
Avatar f tn Thousands of people are suffering with Brachioradial Pruritus, including myself, in my tenth year. It is the most maddening disease and I have learned of no cure. Ice is the ONLY thing to provide relief, and acupuncture has not been effective for me. I have tried all the expensive prescription and steroid creams to no avail. I am losing sleep, and my sanity, b/c it keeps me up all night. I am staying out of the sun, but every year, this persists until December or January.
Avatar n tn Your extremities are those parts of your body that extend from the main part of your body, that is, your arms and legs, fingers and toes. Most people with numbness or tingling feel it in their fingers and toes, but it may extend into the arms and legs". I've had numbness/tingling/cold sensations in my big toes only. It started with TX and is still there (2 months post tx). Wondering if it's related to tx, blood pressure, ages or kids filling my shoes with ice as a gag.
Avatar n tn Short term negative effects are Hypothyroid dependend to drugs for life and potential bowel diarreha or constipation leading to diagnoses of colitis or IBS and other. One of the long term effects is lukemia. Please do not give uninformed consent as I did. I lost twenty years of quality of life due to the medical treatments that followed after RAI.

Avatar n tn I am sticking with the 11 pm or 3 am time because of the nasty side effects if I wait and take it in the morning. For me the side effects were WORSE with synthroid. I guess I am in the minority there. Anyone else have a story like mine? I am so new to this I want advice. I also have a cyst on the other side which they have to watch. My brother's cyst was malignant and he has no thyroid now. He has been on Syn for 18 years and has never complained. he gets up at 4:30 to take his.
Avatar n tn Acutally, people who use HGH will often result to taking HCG to restore their male parts to normal and reverse the effects of HGH shrinking them. HCG is used to help establish normalcy to underdeveloped male parts. It does not make you bigger unless it is underdeveloped and by no means should ever make it smaller. It also is confusing that someone posted it would cause men to grow breasts?
503422 tn?1218560541 Of course, like Kathyjo said, a LOT of teens start smoking because of peer pressure, but I would make a bet that the teen that started smoking for that reason was fairly unhappy to begin with. But, then again, I realize not every stressed out teen starts smoking. My 19yr old niece has never smoked and she has grown up under a tremendous amount of stress in the home.
Avatar m tn But had tubes in my ears when i was little til the age of 14, i started smoking at the age of 12, i quit when i was 22, and am now 23.. sometimes i wish i didnt quit smoking..
1160836 tn?1332333769 My doctor thought it was enviormental (exercise, stress...etc) as I just started to go do body pump right around that time. Every cycle before that was 30-31 days to the day!! So we will see.....
Avatar f tn Eat a healthy, balanced diet, take vitamins, and drink plenty of water. Avoid smoking. Also apply a good sunscreen with spf atleast 30 half an hour before going out in the sun. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar m tn I've been on Medical Marijuana for 4 years and also throughout 3 of 4 of my failed treatments. I will start treatment the 2nd week of Aug. with Victrelis. It was the Gastroenterologist who recommended the Medical Marijuana. However, the best way to smoke it to prevent carcinogens is with a vaporizer. When I was nauseated often by past treatment attempts, I took a couple of hits and within 10 minutes.... no nausea..... and.... suddenly hunger returned....
Avatar n tn How are the average side effects for 48wks tx percentage wise you see out of 100 people? 1) no side effects 5% 2) little side effects 15% 3) moderate side effects 70% 4) severe side effects 10% 5) irreversable permanent side effects <1% basically it comes down to 2 approaches: 1) Only treat if you absolutely have to when your back is against the wall (high enzymes, VL , symptoms ect....
Avatar n tn I read the thread here, only a couple of ladies here mentioned that the side effects went away after few weeks or a couple of months, most of the ladies here quit Yaz after a month. I dont think i can stand another week.
480448 tn?1426952138 (movie like, in my experiences). Depersonalization is a subjective experience of unreality of one's self. So the difference is...rerealization relates more to the external environment...our outside world, whereas depersonalization relates more to our sense of "self"...that "we" don't feel like who we are. Both of these sensations are caused by a shift/change in the brain.
1312898 tn?1314571733 Sativas (like Durga Mata) are often characterized as uplifting and energetic . The effects of a sativa marijuana are mostly cerebral. They give a feeling of optimism and well being, as well as providing a good measure of pain relief for certain symptoms. You can try various hybrids since some strains work better for some people. At least that is what seems to work for me. Again, I smoke before bed. My job requires me to be sharp during the day.
139792 tn?1498589250 e in you are insulted by somebody, visualize that you were apriciated.. Of cource this will be faking. Fake it till you make it. that should be the sloggan.In this way one can reduce the effect of trauatic events and be from the past garbage. Similarly all the failures should be turned into successful.Here also faking is used to vonvert the failures into cuccess.Some plausible story has to be formulated and convert the result into success.
