Avatar n tn My right eyelid gets itchy at night (weird), right in the area of my lashes. I scratch and by morning its huge and red, sometimes painful. My left eye is very different. It is not as sensitive. Gets itchy higher, not as much or as often and never swells. After the "itch, scratch and swelling episode" the swelling goes away and I am left with VERY dry skin. I apply lotions at night and after a day or two, I am left with wrinkles!
Avatar n tn I am sorry for your Dx. I am a female but also now hypo.Since the beginning of my illness everything I read regarding the disease, when I stumbled across the stats of men getting it, I read through it. Dx is rare. specially on sub clinical Hypo or Hyper thyroidism in men. I believe this b/c men are less likely to see a doctor when they have symptoms. and if they do go and get Dx'd - most do not have the patience and stay on top of it.
Avatar n tn If you're taking this pill just to loose weight, and not for a health reason, you should stop taking it, and see that if you keep eating healthy, and walking, you'll still loose! And BTW, taking this pill 10 mins before a meal to help with your appetite is crazy! All diet pills tell you to take it 30min.s before each meal.. b/c it takes 30 min.s to start working...10 min.s? that pill isn't doing anything for you when you're eating!
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
Avatar m tn Additionally, they're a great source of fiber. Pomegranates Pomegranates have up to three times the antioxidants of red wine and green tea – and the juice has been shown to reduce artery-clogging plaque, which in turn prevents heart disease and stroke. Research shows that long-term consumption of pomegranate juice may also help slow aging and protect against cancer.
Avatar n tn I have tried both with my partner. Too much alcohol but whisky seems the common one to upset me. Red wine is ok, and the last one is heat. If I get really hot, there it goes. Of course this is bad as I live in a tropical climate. I do have sex fairly regularly but this is not as frequent since I have had the issue. I have had the issue for 6 months now and have spent nearly $10K with doctors to no avail.
Avatar m tn Shave some slices and steep in boiling water for a soothing tea, recommends Bill Phillips, Men's Health editor-in-chief and author of The Better Man Project. Not only do its anti-inflammatory properties make it useful to people with arthritis, bursitis, or tendonitis, but it can also help relieve gas, nausea, motion sickness, allergies, and bad breath, says Phillips. Tart cherries instead of pills.
Avatar n tn I dry brush my arms daily and use a red LED device which is supposed to increase collagen and elastin production. I use arm wraps at night (elasticated bands). I go to the gym a lot and weigh 123 pounds at 5' 8". I had one laser treatment but it was a freebie and did nothing (SmartXide Dot laser) I've done all this for well over a year and NOTHING has improved. I look like a 40-year-old with an 80-year-old's arms.
1963551 tn?1325604592 When I was in the hospital he had went on one of his destroying the house episodes, doing horrible things, throwing away my medicine, pictures, taking the mattress outside, before he left he cut the water hose and electirical hoses on the dryer and washing machine and flooded the house..He stayed in a hotel for 2 weeks and I told him he had to get help..just couldn't do this anymore. He called and said bye and I found out from his parents that he is in a rehab but he cant write or call..
Avatar n tn where I have SEVERE pain in the midle of my gut (triggered by pain meds.....wine....greasy food...and ????) I get VERY pale...sweat PROFUSELY, drool and then either vomit....have watery stools, fart or....if I'm REALLY unlucky....suffer from these WAVES of pain, vaso-vagal(?) type symptoms for HOURS until they subside...sometimes hycosamine will work...sometimes 4 tums...and once and a while nothing but time cures it.....I have been told IBS....

Avatar n tn WOW! 22 pounds is a lot of weight to loose in such a short period of time! Good for you!!! I hope that I am able to loose 22 pounds in the next couple of months. Are you following a diet plan and working out? I have not started working out yet....maybe one day...I don't have a diet plan either I am just trying to make good choices and watch my portions. This way I know that when I stop the shots and medicine I won't gain it all back. Lets hope!!! Best of Luck to you...
689860 tn?1238721632 Try this for a month and see what happens. Also, you might try a glass or two of red wine each day (but no more than that). If overweight, try losing 10-15% of your body weight and see if things improve. If none of this works, in my opinion, the only thing you can do is find a doctor that is familiar with men's hormones (typically NOT what you'd think, an endocrinologist. from my experience, they are more in tune with diabetic needs, and not age related hormone modulation).

Red Wine A small amount of any kind of alcohol each day does your heart good by increasing HDL cholesterol and reducing the risk of blood clots.
1376247 tn?1278892259 I jogged, danced or swam every day and ate fresh foods. I stopped drinking alcohol and meditated. I also played little mind games with myself, forcing myself out of my comfort zones in various situations. I allowed myself to fully imagine the worse case scenarios and go through the feelings, desensitizing. Talking to the anesthesiologist- and officially requesting him - really helped a LOT with trust and info.

172336 tn?1202258241 I personally know a man very well who received a liver transplant 3 days before I did while he was on methadone for prior heroin addiction. After transplant he treated with Pegasys/Ribavirin and achieved SVR. He was genotype 2. He is still on methadone and still undetectable. At my center he isn't the only methadone user who got a liver. I don't think it's a big deal - the MELD score, body size and blood types make up the big deal.
Avatar f tn Did anyone see her coment on the, -" had an abortion and might be pg gain" -? I looked at all the other , and that's the only one I thought she MAY of gotten upset on. I didn't see it. I wasn't on much yesterday. Did u all see it?
Avatar m tn When the infected snot is removed from your head, the cold viruses, bacteria, and perhaps the fungi will not have a comfortable environment to thrive, multiply, and release the poisons which inflame and destroy the otherwise healthy red mucus membranes in your nose and sinuses. Doctors have difficulty treating sinusitis caused by fungi. They can give you an antifungal medicine, but there is no definite proof that it can cure the sinusitis.
Avatar n tn He posted everywhere. Several threads, both Men's and Women's forums. Just a troll, never to be seen or heard from again.
Avatar n tn Went to the bathroom, and noticed my penis and almost fully retracted into my abdomen and was stiff , even though it was in its "flaccid" state. I went to the doctor a few months later , (being a young teen i was embarrased) and he said he didnt know, but its probably nothing to worry about and it would probably resolve itself. It never did, and i am 27 now. It doesnt affect my sex life directly, i can achieve and maintain an erection just fine, urination is fine as well.
Avatar n tn Wow you guys, I tried the ideas I found in the artitcle on Suite 101 by Susan Laverie called, "Get Rid of Sour Smell Under Breasts and Reduce Body Odor Problem". They really work. I have no odor anymore and all the little red bumps and itchy spots are gone too. I think it may be the colloidal silver which cleared those up. Anyway, search for her article. I'd put the link here but I am concerned that it may not be allowed.
Avatar f tn ( It's so disheartening that so many are suffering with this. I am not young but I am not old (48) and I feel young and besides this I am in good health or at least I was. I just hope there is relief from this...and I hope you are finding relief from your symptoms.
Avatar n tn when I was a kid and had issues with being red and irritated below. These faded as I got older. After having my first daughter, we bought a house in mexico. My skin would get really dry, cracked rashy, going from the cold of the state of washington to the warm and humidity of mexico.
Avatar n tn I just get these violent coughing attacks that literally feel and behave as if I inhaled a bread crumb, and my body suddenly and violently is trying to cough it up. And just like when we are choking, I have a hard time catching my breath during these violent choking fits. By the time I'm done 4-8 minutes later, I'm shaking, tears streaming down my face, and I've probably wet myself. Its horrible! Does this sound familiar to anyone?
Avatar n tn The pads caused me to itch really badly and I became red and raw and it hurt a bit to walk because the plastic was chafing and irritating the delicate skin of my inner, upper thighs. There was nothing I could do about it because I was catching a flight home to CA and was stuck on a plane for over 5 hours. So, thinking this was just a mild irritation and possibly a yeast infection, I used the generic CVS Pharmacy brand of the 3 Day Monistat. This made EVERYTHING worse.
Avatar n tn About a week later, I started having real tingly scalp, back of head and neck, ears as well as severe red flushing in the face, usually during the morning, the flushing that is. Went to my Doctor and explained things. He stated that the chills on night one were most certainly due to the vaccine. Told me to take Benadryl for the flushing symptoms and to call back in a week if things hadn't improved.
Avatar n tn 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.
288415 tn?1231634102 The outer part of my ear itches, becomes dry and flakes off skin. Sometimes they are red and inflamed. Sometimes I feel the clear fluid as well. I think I am going to make another appointment with my doctor as well. Previously my doctor gave me a script for a steriod cream. I was not very dedicated at using it. I think I will try that over the next few days and see how it goes.
