fibromyalgia

Avatar n tn I don't have any symptoms yet, except for my period being early once in a while. I am 44 years old, and have gone, in 2 weeks, from having 44 year old skin to skin of a 60 year old. Could someone please help? I'm very distressed.
Avatar n tn Thank you! I will be dumping him shortly. I am located in BC, Canada. I've had some people suggest going to a naturopath, and I have one that I love. In fact, it has been my naturopath that is the only person in 15 years to acknowledge my hypo condition and help me to get any temporary relief from symptoms. I'm not sure, though, if Naturopaths in BC can "prescribe" dessicated thyroid. Anyone know?
Avatar n tn Im not getting the best patient treatment here because our medical system here in Vancouver BC is backed up, and all doctors are cranky it seems! I went to a naturopath once, and she said i have a systemic yeast infection and wanted me to take antifungals as soon as possible.
Avatar f tn I had to travel back and forth on the bus because the study is in Vancouver, BC which is about 200 miles from where I live. So, all fall and winter I have been travelling back and forth on the Greyhound bus, yahoo!! I had to get sick several times travelling on the bus in the tiny washroom on the back of the bus. I did it though and have a SVR12 as of March 10th of this year!!!
Avatar n tn See, at the beginning of all this, I was extremely open to anything a doctor suggested for me to do. I was diagnosed at Children’s in Vancouver, and I’d had them since I was six (I used to have Rheumatoid Arthritis, so I’m not a stranger to doctors. As well as epilepsy before that. Both are in remission) and I had incredible trust in them. They basically put me on Amitriptyline at 25mg, told me to play with the other little kiddies, eat right, and exercise. Nothing worked.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2008 I have all pressure points. I am in so much pain constantly. The Doctor's have tried all the medicine they could and now I live with pain because the only next step there is, is to take morphine. I won't take that because it makes me think of death. I live in NH, yes NH where it is cold and still is in the month of April, we just had snow. haha In 3 years all the children will be out of high school and off to college.
284078 tn?1282620298 If I make a very gross estimate that there might be 2000 people in my city taking Topamax and I, personally have seen 2 attacks in one year, then that would put the risk at about 1 in 1000. Please understand that I have no scientific evidence to base this rate on and that this is purely my very rough estimate from my experience only. So take it for what's it worth.
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 f tn I also had2 c-sections, a tubal in 2007 and my ablation was done in Feb 2010. He insisted on doing the ablation instead of a hysterectomy bc I am 36yrs old. What is the difference, I am not having any more children. Has anyone else had a procedure done like this before to drain the blood backing up?
572651 tn?1531002957 I'm Lulu54, and was diagnosed with RRMS in 2008. I am on copaxone and my MS appears to be stable for now. My diagnosis was fairly easy because I have a classic MRI with lesions/enhancing lesions in all the right places and a neurologist who doesn't believe in delaying treatment. Also, I am one of several co-community leaders here on the MS community and am passionate about advocating for all of us. Who's next?
Avatar f tn Cathy, I also have fibromyalgia which is managed without meds. I have been of steroids for a year now thank goodnesss. Had I thought to call my Rhuematologist I would have found out that his office was advising not to get the vaccine because of this reaction which I of course found out when I went in after the symptons started. I ask him if it was a fibro flare as well and he said that it was not and had all to do with the shot.
Avatar n tn If this were the cause of the bleeding, then logically, I should be experiencing inconsistant spotting at least a couple times per month, rather than the very consistant 'two days before' situation I explained earlier. I started on the BC pills in July. When I was close to the date that my period should start on the pill, I had the exact same bleeding two days before onset. I am now into the second month...we will see what happens next.
Avatar n tn Antidepressants treat a lot more than depression including being helpful for increasing blood volume in Fibromyalgia cases, so please don't let the name get you down. (No pun intended. Ops.) What I was trying to suggest with your daughter more so than saying "I'm sorry, I'm sorry" is a heart to heart listening to her sometime when you are calm. My sister was off-kilter for a while and my niece when I asked her surprised me at how much she could express and how it helped.
Avatar n tn a day, i,ve tried cutting back to 10mg was on that for a month, then i tried to take 10mg every other day,the second day istarted having withdrawals,tremers,heart racing,weak,ihave never felt so bad in my life.so i always goback to taking the 20mg aday.
Avatar m tn I can feel them crawling under my skin, they hang out in my ear (not sure if under the skin or just in the canal) all day, it's gross. No one in the house (my wife and 3 kids) can feel them. My wife has bites all up and down her legs and even a protruded ring looking this on her forearm. As you might have imagined I'm loosing my mind and life, nothing is the same.
Avatar n tn In the next day or two can everyone check in how they're doing? It's helpful to all of us to see how this is all going. Thanks!
Avatar f tn Only relief is ice. It started 10 years ago (was living in mountains of Colorado--sunny, but little humidity) in the summer. It comes back every year around July/August and lasts thru December, disappearing just as suddenly as it returned. Does your itch do this as well? I am awake every single night with this, although it also occurs in the daytime now. It started on my left upper arm, but seems to expand each year.
Avatar n tn I have experienced on 4 occasions in the last 6 years a rather weird Diarrhoea attack which really is painful and scary. Here is a description of what occurs. 1. Sudden abdominal pain which increases in intensity over a short time. The same sensation one might get when they are about to get Diarrhoea. 2. I go to the toilet and try excreting whatever wants to come out.
Avatar n tn The most common form of Chiari Malformation is Type 1, it often manifests later in life (not at birth, but sometimes in children) with headaches and cerebellar symptoms like dizziness and memory/concentration problems. The cerebellum in the lower back of the brain starts extending down past the skull into the spine. This herniation can, and often does, get worse. If you are diagnosed with Chiari 1, you generally will be told how far the herniation extends in millimeters.
Avatar n tn especially running and lifting weights. I have to stop every once in a while just to yawn (frustrating) to stop from getting dizzy. It's also noticeable as I am trying to go to sleep and/or when I've had a glass or 2 of wine. I was "diagnosed" with exercise-induced asthma 9-10 years ago, but I think this was a mis-diagnosis as the inhalers never work (I've tried all sorts) and they usually end up making me feel worse.
Avatar n tn Im using the original DHEA i'll check the brand name and tell you. I take 1X 25mg in the morning and 1 in the evening. Im self medicating on it so im scared to increase the dose. I just want to prepare myself in advance for our next IVF. Good luck to both of you.
Avatar f tn Hi, I did a day 5 ET with 2 blast. On days 6-8 I had some mild cramping which my RE said could be from implantation. Then on the day before my Beta test I had some nausea during the afternoon. Beta was done 11 days past ET and I got a BFP!!! Try not to worry to much, alot of people say they feel no symptoms at all and still get a BFP. Best of luck to you.
