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!
20100145 tn?1490176560 I've been diagnosed with fibromyalgia for over 10 years now. I've had health problems my entire life. I've been all over Louisiana to just about every Dr for everything but cancer and prostate checks. How many of you really understand what fibromyalgia is? Have you just come to terms with the diagnosis and accept the situation because of exhaustion from all the labs, x-rays, drugs and what pure misery that you are going through? I know exactly what that's like to go through.
Avatar f tn I hate to sound like a big baby, but I have been coping with Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, IBS for almost 22 years now and have never had this much trouble getting help. I was recently diagnosed by the same PCP with COPD to boot. After a series of tests, x-rays and finally an MRI, I have two bulging disks, 2 compressed disks and a mass near my spine in my lumbar region.
Avatar f tn The most common comorbidities in people with MS -- hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and chronic lung disease -- are associated with delays in the MS diagnosis, delays in starting treatment with a disease-modifying therapy, a higher number of hospitalizations, more rapid disease progression and a reduced quality of life.
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 Her DR is a well respected Dermatologist in North Louisiana. He has treated her with four protocols each more aggressive. The last was methotrexate which ended with a trip to the Emergency Room 2 weeks ago. Her symptoms are joint pain, extreme itching with hives (up to 20 episodes per day), intolerance of heat, sleeplessness, swelling in her extremities and overall depression. I fear that she is to the point of being suicidal.

Avatar f tn Lyrica is a treatment for pain management mostly used for patients with fibromyalgia, from what you described it sound like arthritis, and it never hurts to have a second opinion, you know your body better then anyone else...
Avatar f tn So what else? ..... lolol Mom and Dad in Louisiana, Daddy in Hospital, Brother got admitted too for bi-polar disorder, yikes, Mom has chronic bladder disease, daddy lost one of the poodles, my husband just got laid off, so of course no money for bills, utilities getting shut off in the next day or so, no food money, no gas money, oh my goddd....
Avatar n tn Is it possible to be bit by a tick and not have symptoms show up until several decades later? I was born in Louisiana, but we spend about a month in the summers in a small town in new York on the Beaverkill river, I moved to New Jersey when I was 3 and lived for a year--then moved out west. I was bitten by a tick when I was about 8 years old---don't know if I got sick or not, nor do I know if there was a rash--it was in a place not easy to see.
Avatar n tn A lady I know of was diagnosed with Celiac Sprue and Fibromyalgia, only to later be diagnosed with Lyme. After months of antibiotics, I believe her B12 level was restored, and the Celiac Sprue condition cleared up. Celiac Sprue is supposed to be a genetic condition, remember, but like everything else, medicine's own definitions change annually. We have medications today that are causing viral infections. Pretty good indication that medicine's theory is a bit looney in some areas.
1238606 tn?1304205221 I am in Louisiana and I did this for over a year. I did have an addiction but now i have been clean for 9 months after going to a detox center on my own(before I got in trouble) Please answer....
Avatar n tn Sorry if this has been asked before but what's everyone's opinion on the best place to live for fibromyalgia. The cold and damp make me hurt so I'm thinking a desert location. Anyone have an opinion on San Diego or Tuscon? thanks!
Avatar f tn She diagnosed it as fibro. My family members have had MS, rheumatoid and osteo.arthritis and fibromyalgia. The research I found was incredible. I can't believe someone wouldn't have checked on lupus. A list I've made of symptoms has everything listed as a symptom for lupus! I was sitting in the living room trying to deal with all of my twitching and jerking when I thought I've got to ck. this out, if this is another symptom and I found this sight.
Avatar n tn told me it was caused by stress, my rheum. said it was part of the fibromyalgia flair up and the heat wave we were having last summer. the pain was as if i was burn by steam and some days it was on both my arms or legs, my face, sides, it would move all over in large patches all over my body and I couldn't stand to have anything touch me. I would take Naproxen or vicodine to to the edge off the pain. The burning pain went away in Oct. but came back this week.
459853 tn?1283144114 I had an appointment with a Rheumatologist and she thinks all of this is Fibromyalgia but I think otherwise. I have a extensive history of arthritis in my family. And not to mention, it seems like I'm getting sick more often now.... I used to NEVER get sick....and with being sick comes bad flare-ups!!!! The doc did a whole round of tests while I was there.... 6 viales of bood was taken and I had x-rays done from head to toe!
Avatar m tn You can overcome it by psychological counseling with a psychologist/psychiatrist and boosting up your confidence levels. The treatment of severe blushing includes anti anxiety medicines and beta blockers. Severe cases may need endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy (ETS). 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 doctor.
2010625 tn?1329375656 The psychosis caused my first suicidal thoughts which lead me into treatment where I became manic again. Finding Carolyn in treatment this time and falling in love with her caused the mania to come back. Her ignoring my calls caused the OCD which could have led to relapse had I not realized that the obsessing over Carolyn was the same as obsessing over pain pills. I needed my next fix of Carolyn. I started practicing patience and not obsessing and I have gotten pretty good at it.
Avatar n tn Are you still feeling better with the vitamin D treatment ? Vitamin D is not a true vitamin and it is an immunosuppressive steriod. Vitamin D dysregulation is common in autoimmune conditions, fibromyalgia & CFS. Taking extra Vitamin D, is probably only a temporary "treatment", in my opinion. Unfortunately it doesn't solve the problem.
Avatar n tn I'm only 14 and have this strange lump! I'm going to go see a doctor about this tomorrow. I was worrying about it being serious before reading everybody's comments on here!
Avatar n tn * May help in the treatment of alcoholism. * Most diabetics are deficient in vitamins and minerals, including magnesium. These deficiencies may reflect a reduced ability to absorb and utilize nutrients. I think I might try this option also!!!!
Avatar n tn I'm 41 years old non-smoker No history of migranes Current headaches (again, docs say stress induced but I have mine 80-90% of time). Has anyone had success with a Home treatment? (heat? ice?other)?
Avatar f tn The dexilant seems to be helping so far (it's my third day on it now) but I am early into this new treatment. My internist also sent me to my cardio when I first started experiencing the burning just to rule out other issues and all was fine regarding the heart. My gastroenterologist told me not to do anything natural or med wise except for the dexilant right now-I asked him about drinking aloe which I had started doing a few weeks ago and he told me to stop.
Avatar m tn windex clorox zappers PCO treatment washing everything Ozone treatment Carpet powder tea trea oil Gralic / Pottasium / Magnsm Foggers Citronella candles Yes when i washed everything compulsively, had the Ozone generator turn on for hours, when gone out of the house, Took a bath with fungus soap, or sulphur soap, changed sheets before going to sleep, took garlic/magnesium/potassium supplements daily, all this combined= better sleep.

Avatar n tn I am in shock! I am 39 and at the age of 30 I moved from alabama to louisiana. 6 months after living here I noticed a dent in the top of my head on the right side. I have always wore my hair in a pony tail and would have noticed before. I started having headaches about 3 months before this showed up. I went to the dr scared like all of you. The 1st neuro asked if I was from Third Rock from the Sun, great joke but made me a little upset.
Avatar n tn v=-YW28F6IwM4 I believe it to be helpful for CFS, Fibromyalgia, Morgellons, and hey maybe even head and muscle flies (what it actually feels like I've got). Sooo when you wake up in the middle of the night. Check out this site. Take care and Happy Holidays.

472570 tn?1274689487 my otherwise shiny and sealed concreate floor in my high tech condo has areas of 'gummy' gooey stuff and no matter what I do or treat with it will not go away I am apologizing for this long post, but I am in despair not sure how long I can keep this up. I do not seek treatment anymore, just someone to believe me, give me the shadow of a doubt, think outside of the box of mutant possibility. I need optical enhancements, scanning electronic microscopy for example.
