Avatar n tn I'm a 60 year old men, in excellent health, except for experiencing tremors during sleep that wake me up and have difficulty going back to sleep. As I start to fall sleep again, I feel these "rumbleling" (tremors) around my upper body. I immediately wake up again. These tremors last for about 10-15 seconds after I wake up. The first time I experienced this condition was exactly two years ago. It lasted for about four days and it simply went away.

1481901 tn?1287730844 I'm sorry you didn't like my answer or find it helpful. You asked for suggestions on what you can use on your skin during pregnancy & I listed what I found to actually work during this time. I only included prices because I hated it when someone would suggest something to me that was over $100.00 & hard to find. once again, sorry my answer didn't give you any idea & left you with more questions. I simply made a list of stuff I found out was safe to use.
Avatar n tn I am completely terrified that I have herpes. Tomorrow I am going to see my old OBGYN who I saw during my first pregnancy and I am hoping that she can give me some answers. When I was on the phone with the nurse at my old OBGYN's office, she told me it was insane for a doctor to diagnose herpes without doing any actual testing so I am still hoping and praying that it is not herpes.
Avatar n tn I'm certainly going to talk to mine when I go back and tell him about this forum and we've all got the same problems, being treated the same, and no relief. I, too, have problems walking like in malls and large spaces, with my balance.
Avatar f tn straining caused me to have 2-3 finger sized external hemmorhoids. After pregnancy they shrunk and became skin tags, one large one about the size of my thumb and the other two size of finger. I came across "Colorectal Health Centre" for chicago location online...and for anyone else who wants the website, here it is....http://www.crhcenter.com....after looking up various other removal procedures (such as laser) and decided to pay them a visit.
Avatar m tn I have no diseases, do not use drugs, but drink on occasion. Anyways, just started noticing these strange symptoms, within the past few weeks. Nothing "brought it on" so to speak that I can tell of. It's been going on longer, but less noticeable, now since I do not talk sleeping meds any more, it's all that I can notice... Symptoms are strange sensations on my skin. The sensation is it feels like there are "invisible bugs" crawling on, and/or biting my skin.

Avatar n tn Dark Skin Patches And Skin Lightening Tips Dark skin present near the groin or on the inner thighs is a normal phenomenon. Due to constant skin friction that takes place from the thighs rubbing against each other while walking or running, the skin tends to get darker. Another factor contributing to the dark skin is obesity and people who are over weight tend to experience this condition.

Avatar m tn Three days ago I started feeling like whatever this was is now in my skin (I'm certain of it), It's under the skin on my face, my scalp, my back, my toes, and my feet. I can feel it crawling in and out of my anus at times also. Went to the dermatoligist today and of couse he says it's my imagination, some people get it. He's subscribed me some DEXEPIN for depression. :( Funny thing is I'm not depressed, my life was quite good until this bug showed up.
Avatar n tn I also read research that states that a mother‘s defficient thyroid function during the pregnancy can influence the neurological development of the fetus. I suspect that in my case my low thyroid function may possibly have had a significant influence on my sons neurological immaturity and their manifestation of ADHD symptoms. But this is something I still need to research a little further.
Avatar n tn A friend on mine got pregnant when she had the copper IUD, but it ended up being a tubal pregnancy. When I had mine I did research and there are quite a few people that have gotten pregnant while it was still in. Have you checked the string to see if it's still in place? You said that your last AF was the beging of Oct? How many days late are you? In most cases you can take the test the first day of missed Af. But the longer you wait the more chances of getting a correct answer.
Avatar f tn Hi, During pregnancy, skin changes are common. Pregnancy causes changes in blood hormone levels. There are rashes specific to pregnancy and most of these changes disappear within a few months after the baby is born and tend to reappear in subsequent pregnancies. Try to avoid applying any medication, facial wash and lotion to prevent aggravation. If this persists, have this evaluated further for proper management. Direct clinical examination is important. Take care and keep us posted.
1035252 tn?1427231433 Just thought I would open a thread where we could post about those things we didn't know we would experience during pregnancy until all of a sudden "oops, I just peed a little when I sneezed!" Don't be embarrassed...I'm sure we've all been there. how about peeing when you sneeze/cough/fart too hard?
Avatar n tn I was just wondering if anyone could tell me when I should start to having pregnancy symptoms after iui. I am 6 days post iui and yesterday I started feeling naused. It woke me up during the night and I still feel the same today. I don't know if I have a bug or if is maybe a sign. I also took 10,000 units of HCG trigger shot but it has been 8 days since I had shot so I don't know if that could be it. Please HELP!!!
Avatar f tn Could be a combination of heat and pregnancy, though my money is on pregnancy. The rise in hormones makes your skin more sensitive to everything (thats why pregnant women burn easily). Also for some women, the hormones cause breakouts more than before. Check your facial wash ingredients to make sure there is nothing too strong that your newly sensitive skin doesn't like.you may need to seitch to using just luke warm water to wash your face. I have more problems than normal, but not much.
Avatar n tn It can be difficult when something unexpected comes up during a pregnancy. Low unconjugated estriol (uE3) is associated with Down syndrome and Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome, and you mentioned that your testing for these were negative. Low unconjugated estriol is also associated with placental steroid sulfatase deficiency, an X-linked condition that is characterized by ichthyosis (a skin disorder which causes dry, fish-like scales on the skin) surface), and other unknown problems.
780153 tn?1287572547 At present there is insufficient data to routinely advise continuation of metformin during pregnancy. As an alternative to continuing metformin therapy, those women with increased risk of abnormal blood clotting may benefit from baby aspirin, folate supplementation and low dose heparin therapy.

Avatar n tn Tretinoin, an acid that increases skin cell (keratinocyte) turnover. This treatment cannot be used during pregnancy. Azelaic acid (20%), thought to decrease the activity of melanocytes. Facial peel with alpha hydroxyacids or chemical peels with glycolic acid.' 'Laser treatment for melasma - A Wood's lamp test should be used to determine whether the melasma is epidermal or dermal.
Avatar n tn Many women notice hair loss about 3 months after they've had a baby. This loss is also related to hormones. During pregnancy, high levels of certain hormones cause the body to keep hair that would normally fall out. When the hormones return to pre-pregnancy levels, that hair falls out and the normal cycle of growth and loss starts again. Some medicines can cause hair loss. This type of hair loss improves when you stop taking the medicine.
368461 tn?1291519187 First they shoot up to a stinking G cup and I have boobs like Oprah. Then I am not this milk-making machine during nursing which I thought these giants would be. And now? FLAPJACKS. HIP HUGGERS. KNEE PADS! haha. OK, so I am not a plastic surgery nut - I have never done more than a photo-facial . BUT I am seriously considering some breast work - a lift, a reduction and implant.
