Avatar n tn in the last two weeks i have had three blood vessels just pop in my fingers. i was not doing anything out of the ordinary. what could be causing this? should there be a cause for concern?
Avatar n tn I wake every morning with horrible pain in lower back (kidney area) that radiates to the front of stomach (rib area). I have had battery of tests and found nothing. I am only able to sleep 5-6 hours before pain wakes me, also unable to take a deep breath until I get out of bed (very painful just to roll over), once I stand and get out of bed the pain almost immediately starts to ease. After about 20 minutes of walking around and after first morning void, pain disappears for remainder of day.
Avatar n tn Over here we have a relatively new drug called Lofexidine hydrochloride or Britlofex. It is an alpha2 adrenergic agonist. It " gets rid of " the excess noradrenaline in the system, which is believed to cause some of physical symptoms and so makes withdrawal easier. It is similar to Clonidine but with less risks but it still can raise blood pressure. In England it is availible from the doctor without the need for a specialist detox bed. I have used lofexidine twice.
Avatar f tn This is not uncommon in my experience, as my late twin brother died at 50 yrs of an inoperable secondary brain tumour, and his primary was never found, although he was treated at one of the major university teaching hospitals in London, England. Through my internet correspondence with her (I live in England) I learned a little about pancreatitis (she had many ERCP procedures). She was treated by a Dr.
Avatar f tn The most helpful person she saw was in Birmingham (as I say, this is the one in England). There are centres of excellence in Southampton (I have been assessed there), Birmingham and London (and maybe others I don't know of). Some of your symptoms sound like my sister's and some overlap with my own (I suffer from CFS and Ehlers Danlos Syndrome).
Avatar n tn I have seen a rheumatologist and he is thinking fibromyalgia. I've also been to other forums and people with fibro have similar knots in their legs. My next stop is the neorologist. I have not had any venous testing though. I have had my thyroid checked along with lupus and rhuematoid arthritis (negative). My bloodwork looks perfect. It's really very frustrating. In the meantime, I'm starting some physical therapy this week and getting massages.
Avatar n tn None of the symptoms are bad enough to completely debilitate me or keep me from working, but I often feel completely drained on the weekends and holidays and always seem to have at least 2 or 3 symptoms. I'd appreciate any feedback anybody could give me. I'm in London, England so if anybody knows of any good specialists here could you let me know?
Avatar n tn I now have a young, very intelligent and committed gastro, who worked in a leper colony in Africa and with Aids in London, England. IBD is his passion - whatever turns you on. Amy - I don't understand why/how you had surgery last July and the surgeon said "he would look at your lymph nodes in 3 months" why have you not had them looked at since? With my past experience of Crohn's and breast cancer, this seems to me to be a serious situation and you must see a gastro urgently.
Avatar m tn Hi everyone, I have been suffering from chronic pain and fatigue problems for nearly 2 years now and recently got tested for Lyme Disease. I live in the South West of England. I do not recall being bitten by a tick and neither do my parents but you never know. I never had a rash. My problems began after severe emotional stress over only a period of 3 months. I suffer burning skin, fatigue, shakiness, stinging skin, sore throats, occasional migraine, feeling of weakness.
544292 tn?1268886268 I feel this drug is highly addictive and, if taken long term, causes more pain than it relieves. Steve - London, England I medicated myself with Tramadol which is easily accessable a few miles south of me in Tijuana, MX without prescription for around $20 for 50 tablets. I created an expensive habit but I have decided I don't like myself this way. My 4 hour habit makes me quick to irritation with my children, no motivation, constipation! I AM ADDICTED and I am smart enough to recognize it.
Avatar n tn only the son lives at home with me n hubby, the thought of leaving home hasn,t entered his little head, bless him {or it could be he gives peanuts 4 board ha ha,} i live in the county of lancashire,and we rarely have good wheather here in england!
Avatar n tn I am a 31 yr old male from London in England. For the last 3 years I have been suffering from, well, a variety of 'symptoms'. To give you an idea, I'll describe a typical day for me. I wake up in the morning with a sharp, acute and intense pain in the centre of my chest above the sternum. It's like something is trapped in my chest somewhere. My chest muscles are tense and tawt. I have excessive gas/belching accompanied by a reflux of very acidic bile.
Avatar n tn My name is Victoria, im 16 I live in England with my parents my problem is......My mum is in her mid 40's and was told many years ago (maybe 20) that she has "spinal cord degeneration and atrophy of the nerves" she was a guinea pig for a london hospital for many years, but they seemed to make her worse, but now she has also been told that she has a under-active throid, heart poblems and many other things.
Avatar f tn fibromyalgia ---- Fibromyalgia's cause in unknown, but a number of triggers are consistent among patients. According to the Mayo Clinic Web site, a common trigger is brain chemical imbalance, particularly in the chemical that regulates depression and migraines, and another associated with pain, anxiety and stress. The Fibromyalgia Network Web site says the same problem is seen with two hormones, one that is essential to the body rebuilding itself and another that influences nerve activity.
1110049 tn?1409405744 We have Kinfolk, the McBee's and Hardin's, Dedmons from Durham, Northumberland, Cheshire England, and in Scottland, Dumfries and Galloway, from up in the Tweedsmur Hills, I think I spelled that right. They came over in 1765 and fought in the Revolutionary at Kings Mountain N.C.
230948 tn?1235847929 I go to a top bloke in England a profeesor in his field i used to go private but now see him at a hospital in london, he wants me to go back on the parkinson medicine due to studies in america saying that some people with fibro have a lack of dopimine in the brain which is a nerotransmitter responsible for bodily sensations, but i'm not keen as a few months ago i had a phycotic (cant spell) episode and i cant tell which drug it was down too. I'm on a pain patch now and that works o.
Avatar m tn I am not able to advise you on the genetics linking CFS and EDS, however I can tell you from the contact I have with other EDS sufferers that these 2 conditions often go hand in hand (Fibromyalgia being another condition that seems to link in). From my own case, I can tell the 2 apart, as symptoms are very different. I can understand though that for someone apparently suffering from both at once that it could be very confusing indeed.
614471 tn?1221182794 For the longest time I also believed that bipolar ppl didn't have normal in between moods and that's why I always denied bipolar as being the issue. I do have in between moods. But when I'm in an in between mood, I'm completely emotionless. Almost like a daze and really have no feeling. I'm just kinda there. And on a side note, like ILADVOCATE said, different ppl are different ways. I personally rapid cycle like there's no tomorrow. It's very common for me to cycle a couple of times in one day.
Avatar n tn However because so many of my symptoms tally with those shown on the Canadian Lyme website I have booked to visit a lyme specialist in 2 weeks time. Unfortunetly I live in London England and the doctor is based in Cardiff Wales (I have to go to a different country to find a doctor that knows about Lyme!!). Obviously it may turn out not to be Lyme but this is one of the best leads ive had so far.
Avatar m tn - My MS doctors in London, together with a London-based infectious diseases specialist, tell me they are not obliged to take my German Lyme disease test result into account, as they believe that the UK testing - which came back negative for me last year - is adequate. - However, my experience and research have led me to believe that the UK is not up to speed on Lyme disease and its treatment.
748543 tn?1463449675 TMJ' as it is wrongly called by many) is easy to treat and self-manage or that it may all be in the patient's mind. The sources in the article stated that, "TMJ problems were originally thought to be caused by dental Malocclusion but that this was an infrequent cause of the problem". The American Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), an organization of some 40,000 of the nation's leading dentist, recognizes the relationship between maloclussion and headaches.
748543 tn?1463449675 One of the most difficult concepts to get across to my TMD patients and other doctors is the connectivity of the Jaw and the Neck. In fact, it is my strong belief that TMD/TMJ should really be classified as a Craniocervical Disease and hence fall under the umbrella of medical coverage rather than treated strictly as a dental problem. To the Neuromuscular-minded dentist, "Occlusion" is an extension of general Postural Consideration.
Avatar n tn Hey Saidee, good to know I've got someone to talk to who knows how it all feels! I actually live in the UK near London in a place called Brighton! I don't get the crawling sensation on my back and arms, though that is a sensation I've felt on and off from time to time (quite rarely) in my hands or feet. My main symptom is this burning/tingling sensation that seems to be working its way around my body at the moment.
Avatar n tn lasting all the time for about 2 weeks, after which I would be symptom free for a month or so. Gradually over time, the period in which I sufferred the symptoms lengthened and the period for which I was symptom free shortnened, to the point where I would say for the last 9 months I have sufferred these symptoms 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. My groin area constantly feels "clammy" and sticky, much like you might feel after a long run.
233616 tn?1312790796 It does have profound effects on the thyroid, mine is working agin for the first time in 30 years, and my fibromyalgia is gone.
Avatar n tn I have some swelling or slightly increased muscle tone in the jaw and pain in the lower jaw and teeth (having two horizontally impacted bottom wisdom teeth that never got removed probably doesn't help) I was experiencing (and still am) jaw and throat tightness, neck stiffness, and what the doctor referred to as "trigger points" in my back.
Avatar n tn Helooks down his nose and says its obvious the hired help has been today. In England, (London) we are given carers to help for a few hours a week. If we can't afford it, it's free. She, too is called the hired help. Of course you can't work and of course all the stress has made you worse. He needs shaking for making you feel so bad. My husband is great but, over the years, as you can tell, if he's been fed up he will come out with really hurtful comments.

267243 tn?1189759435 if you read my story, it was VERY occasionally for a long time (every other week or so without true withdrawal.) In the last few months when it was a problem, she started yelling at me, in fact she only gave them knowing I would get sick, and it would come with a lecture including her crying that she only wanted to help. When I called and told her I quit, she was ecstatic and said I'm cutoff officially... and even offered to help (legally...
