Avatar f tn Nothing is working. This time its really bad and I feel scared. Doc tells me our next step is remicade, humira etc. After researching I dont feel comfortable with trying any of those. It seems that it may help with the crohns but start a whole new diesease to tackle. My husbands co-worker suggested that I should try aloe vera juice. So I picked up some two days ago. Have been drinking 6 ounces daily since. I feel something is happening....stomach feels quiet.
Avatar m tn You were giving updated reports on your viral load and alt ast numbers. Its been awhile and just curious as to where you stand now.
Avatar n tn if and when the EF gets below 30%, there can be a failure of the heart to pump effectively and blood will back up into the lungs causing congested heart failure...that happened to me about 7 years ago, currently my heart is the proper size and an EF of 59% with medication.

394687 tn?1290924440 I also have RA and I'm on my 2nd round of tx. I take Humira, Methotrexate and Celebrex. I was also told that if I have a major flare that they would have to pull me off treatment. Since they won't let me take Prednisone while on tx for the flares, they started me on a maintenance dose of Celebrex at the time I started tx. This was a recommendation made by Shands at the University Florida.
Avatar n tn long story short..this episode had possibly damaged my heart and the heart attack enzyme was elevated. i had a murmur surgically repaired 27 years ago and now doctors are saying that there could be electrical problems to the heart,etc.......wanted to keep me in hospital to do a catherization that would check heart electrical impulses but i convinced my primary doc to let me do it on a outpatient basis...
Avatar m tn Frank Pallone and Steve Rothman and U.S. Sens. Robert Menendez and Frank Lautenberg -- each had appealed to the FDA on ReGen's behalf, according to accounts last year from Rothman and spokesmen for the three others. In a statement Thursday, the FDA said it is taking steps to revoke Menaflex's approval, although it also plans to meet with the company to discuss what data would be needed to prove the device is actually safe and effective.
Avatar n tn I am 19 years old and I have a j-pouch too. I have had mine for about a year, and i have pouchitus. I am on humira, which helped at first but eventually stopped working. I went to see a nutritionalist who works with people who have chrones, bid, and uc. She has me on a diet that eliminates ALL grains. I eat a lot of cooked vegetables, protein from fish and chicken, and this wonderful bread called "almond bread".
254544 tn?1310779332 The doc did also agree that is time to try to come of the Methotrexate for the arthritis and see if I can get by with just the Humira. He also has absolutely no problem with me going back on Celebrex and using it long term. The year that I took the Celebrex while on treatment was the most comfortable time I have had with respect to the rheumatoid arthritis. So, yes, as insane as it sounds, I’m going to do it again.
Avatar n tn When you find yourself feeling depressed, remind yourself of hat frequently, and keep that hope in your heart. Keep careful watch on your health, and see your Doctor, if you do have symptoms, because there are medicines that can help. You could also look into a Support Group in your area. As person wih Stage 3~4, who is asymptomatic, you have no reason to believe you wont "make it 3 yrs", it is just normal depression, from the dissappointment you have just gone thru.

Avatar m tn However, viral kinetics studies suggest that a rebound of viral replication often occurs at the end of each week, before the next injection of pegylated interferon. This rebound could be responsible for treatment failure and could theoretically be prevented by more frequent peginterferon injections, the authors of the current study hypothesized.
472570 tn?1274689487 It didnt' get this bad until late summer last year because, I believe, we didn't get much rain. I am on Humira for rheumatoid arthritis and thought it might be a rare side effect of the medication to become hypersensitive to bites. Others in my household aren't affected by the bites. I'm taking a trip to New Mexico next month where the climate is much drier, desert country. I plan to test whether environment is the key.
Avatar f tn I am one day past IVF and am having lower menstrual cramps. Is this unusual. Did anyone else's doctor require them to have bedrest for 24 hours? Thanks for listening.
Avatar n tn I thought the itching may have been a symptom of this. They put me on Humira injections and the other symptoms went away but I still cannot tan without horrible itching. I have tried Benadryl, Atarax, Xyzal, Zyrtec and nothing helped. I have no physical signs like hives or rash. I have seen an allergist and have no allergies and my thyroid and blood tests were all fine.
