Avatar n tn Although I've been taking a Calcium/D pill for eons, I just recently replaced with the Vitamin Code Grow Bone system, which is a package of Calcium/D supplementation along with an evening strontium/probiotic enzyme complement to help the body build and strengthen bone.

15428331 tn?1440594434 Hello and Welcome, I empathize with you - I was there for many years. What is your diagnosis (DX)? What diagnostic tests have you had? Were you able to actually see the results and discuss them with your treating physician? Do you have SIJ Dysfunction? Have you been screened for that condition? Yes many doctors like to minimize our pain. I was told I shouldn't have pain - and what if any pain I had I just had to learn to live with! Cruel and inhumane as far as I am concerned.

585414 tn?1288944902 ) Although I am aware of my hypomania as it occurs, I have no idea how to stop it. It has been almost three years since my diagnosis and I have less hypomania than depression, so it has been hard to prevent or even remedy these episodes.
Avatar n tn It really is painful sometimes. I was searching in the hopes that someone else not only had the same issues, but had a diagnosis as I am getting tired of spending $20 for my doctor to say take some motrin.
Avatar m tn The noise is low and deep, the bouts of thumpings happen with several seconds or minutes between them and they have as much rhythm as someone tapping out morse code. Muscle spasms seems like it fits the best, the weird thing is that it happens so frequently with me, about 40% of the days in a year and those days are usually grouped together.
Avatar n tn I have already been diagnosed with Osteoarthritis ((degenerative arthritis) is a joint disease caused by the breakdown and loss of the cartilage of one or more joints.)). I feel quite sure this is a symptom of it, but with the pain I am having in that leg at the hip and the vibrations down the leg, I need relief, not diagnosis. I am already taking arthritis medication, though it appears that may need to try another type to address this issue.

Avatar n tn The doctors have no idea what it is and say everything is normal, but I keep seeing so many people with these symptoms and no diagnosis.. And the pain is real and very annoying, so something has to be wrong I just wish I knew what it is. A hot compress does help make the pain go away, that's what I did after thanksgiving dinner because it started hurting. Does anyone have any ideas, what should I get tested next?
Avatar n tn The possible diagnosis i have seen here is better that what i get from my doctor. I can't go to any other doctor or the ER because i can't afford it and don't want to place an additional financial burden on my family. i am interested in any homeopathic alternatives.Thanks again for sharing your stories.

Avatar n tn Well, I too have just admitted I have an orange tongue...for months now. I wondered what it was and didn't even ask the doctor when I went for my physical because I just thought it was a passing condition. Well it isn't. I am healthy and eat health. Don't smoke, drink much and eat healthy. I am going to try the candida approach as I did the candida diet before with great success. I will also revisit my naturopathic doctor.

I am relieved and angry . My neurologist has me on neurontin for pain and it works like magic. I begged her for topamax after researching it for 2 minutes lol. at this pont in time I am not afraid of anything. Possible side effects don't scare me any more.
Avatar n tn I got these checked a month ago and I am assuming it's negative for herpes. So if anyone gets a diagnosis plz let me know it just sucks to get tears on your vagina. I don't want to be intimate any more as I am scared to infect my partner for anything. Never had problems like this in the past.

Avatar m tn Been going on for years though. No diagnosis. So basically I'm out of ideas, and about to go insane. It's terrible at night not being able to sleep because of that feeling, and not being able to sleep with my girlfriend because I keep her awake with my constant moving around and itching...
