Avatar n tn I need to find a physician in the Central Florida-Osceola/Orange/Lake/Polk county area who is well-versed in the treatment of Fibromyalgia and CFIDS. One who will listen to me and help me. I have been in chronic pain for many, many, many years and have found no relief. No doctor I have seen has seemed to TRULY understand. They must accept my insurance which is BC/BS Federal Employees.

I have just been diagnosed with hep c after being monogomous with a partner who (very much) wasn't.

Avatar f tn Hello. I am new to this group. Recently diagnosed at Mayo Clinic (after 3 visits during past 4 months) with Fibromyalgia, Central Sensitization Syndrome, Sjogren's Syndrome, Dysautonomia (Autonomic Dysfunction), Migraines and Joint Hypermobility Syndrome. Today, a local rheumatologist in South Florida said "I don't support disability for fibromyalgia." After I questioned this, she said "never, ever" not even when combined with the other diagnoses and symptoms.
Avatar n tn I know that many of us have experienced anxiety and depression on treatment. I'm going to talk to my doc about my increasing anxiety today and see what my options are. I'm already on Celexa, which seemed to work for awhile, but now life seems to be getting hard to manage again. What are others on treatment doing to help with anxiety?
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar f tn The only frustrating thing about these treatments is that they take so long (especially for CFS patients) and they can make you feel worse due to the herxing. I thank God though for this treatment. This treatment option was a little frightening to me at first but what is even MORE frightening is thinking where I would be in 10 years... had I not chosen to wipe out this infection that I have. These mycoplasmas multiply and invade into our cells and tissues.

Avatar f tn I was treatment naive. I finished treatment of 24 weeks was UND at 4,8, 16, and 25. Finished incivek in Aug, finished shots on 12/01/11, and riba on 12/07/2011. Don't get me wrong, I am thrilled with the results and know it hasn't been that long. I have some difficult symptoms and I wondered if anyone else had them after treatment. I am not calling them side effects because I am not taking the meds anymore. I have body aches most of the time (pretty severe ones).
Avatar n tn Hi Geri,,,,Welcome aboard! LOL I have had some nausea during treatment but only got sick the first month and actually it was more due to a headache then anything. Alot of people use ginger or ginger cookies and it seems to help settle the stomach. Hopefully,,,you won't have any problems and light sides! Good Luck and let us know how you are doing!
Avatar f tn I am having a hard time dealing, as I am the only one that knows he is in treatment. He holds his cool for clients, friends and so on, but I get it full force. I was wondering if this will be for the entire treatment, or if I have hope of a ebb to this behavior. If no hope after 17 years of marriage, I don't think I can do it any longer.
173930 tn?1196341998 Survey seems consistent with what I've seen posted here. Most telling to me is that 40% reported feeling worse after treating than before: 29% reported feeling about the same; and 31% reported feeling better after treatment. What that means is that around 2 out of 3 people felt either worse or no different after treating. This should be a reality check for those who treat primarily because of the so-called extra-hepatatic symptons, i.e. to feel better.

Avatar f tn Hi All, Back from Florida, wonderful vacation. Loved seeing my daughters' new home. Weather great, only one day of rain showers. The day before I left I had my follow up with Dr. M. after my MRI's. The results are evidence of MS in spinal cord, so NO MS. That's the good news. Dr. M attributes my muscle weakness, increased intensity in arms, to the cervical disk impinging on the spiinal cord. Due also to the lots of disk degeneration. The lthoracic disk is also causing problems. Dr.

Avatar f tn One study is in Jupiter, Florida. The other in Louisiana. This treatment has been shown to regenerate cells!!!! I am trying to get into the clinical trial in Florida. Sounds extremely promising! Also, I am bipolar and my psychiatrist prescribed Deplin 15 mg 1x per day. She decribes it as "food" for your brain. Paying out of pocket $58 per month through BrandHealth. I hope you find this helpful...will be praying for you!
Avatar f tn Last week I was diagnosed with POTS, NCS, Sleep Apnea, atypical migraine and Fibromyalgia. I had a profound TTT- within 5 mins. I had an 85 bpm increase of my HR and then BP dropped to 60/40-I blacked out and they could not find a pulse. When I came to the doctor said we'll give you medication and you'll be ok. But I'm not ok. Numbness, tingling, headache, constant ear ringing, lightheadedness, poor concentration, fatigue and hypersensitivity to light, sound and touch.
Avatar n tn You would need an experienced Lyme specialist to attempt treatment. Without any treatment, I believe he will continue to go downhill. This is just my personal opinion and I am not medically trained and do not know the full extent of his condition, but I don't like to see people give up.

Avatar f tn com/forums/lyme-disease-support-forums/general-support/1042931-need-a-good-lyme-doctor-in-or-close-to-florida It is stealthily handled when it comes to finding a Lymes dr. Treatment has become a controversial thing. This is due to insurance, treatment debates, and just plain docs covering their behinds because of the great misunderstanding of the disease by influential people. Again, watch the movie to better understand what I'm talking about.
Avatar f tn The CFSAC must respectfully consider how it is contributing to the human rights abuse caused by the CFS construct, and demonstrate that it is forcefully acting in the best interests of these severely ill and neglected patients by becoming the Myalgic Encephalomyelitis Advisory Committee, strongly demanding the reinstatement of MyalgicEncephalomyelitis and the adaptation of a research version of the Canadian Consensus Guidelines, the only medically relevant guidelines with *diagnostic tests* an
Avatar n tn I had a blood test for "south florida" allergies and that came back fine. I am not allergic to anything that I know of. I am currently taking Paxil and Yaz, I started taking them about the same time, Aug 07. The first time I got sick with mono-like symptoms was Aug 06. I was tested several times for mono and strep throat. The mono test came back positive 1 of 3 times. The strep tests always came back negative.
Avatar n tn My reading indicates that those of with us with conditions like Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, etc need a higher level of this vitamin than to just merely be at the barely into normal place as we use it faster than it can be made. Heck, I live in Florida and that's not enough sunlight? Of course, I don't sit out in the sun since I was born a redhead and burn incredibly easy.
