1459410 tn?1285698605 I have taken ibuprofen for weeks at a time in the past for the osteoarthritis in my jaws. I try to take it sparingly for it now. But I get frequent heartburn and was recently put on cytotec generic, which is supposed to help with stomach lining. I have tried acupuncture, which I thought helped some, herbal heat pack, ice, valium, ibuprofen and wear a flat-planed splint for my jaw osteoarthritis.
Avatar f tn Years ago after horrendous headaches and neck pain and trips to the ER I was diagnosed w/ osteoarthritis that cause migraines. Been taking hydrocodone for it since then and it's been a godsend. 2 little pills and both problems go away and I can function.............I don't take them everyday, more like 3 or 4 days a week, 2 pills and I'm good for most of the day. I also have a tens unit which has help tremendously as well. Take LOTS of hot baths etc. Fast forward to now.......
Avatar m tn I try to walk 5 times a week for an hour as I also have chronic A-Fib and high BP and recently discovered that I also have a mildy enlarged aorta artery. I also have chronic pain and am on medication for same. I tried swimming for exercise however because of the arthritis I cant get my arms to go over my head to swim so walking seems the best exercise is there anything else others have tried that may work and is it OK to continue with the hour long walks?
Avatar f tn I need to lose 80 lbs. and have osteoarthritis. I've been on a low carb diet twice and both times the arthritis has flared and become quite painful. I think it's an excess of protein. How else can I lose weight? I can't stand being hungry and have good weight loss results with low carb. Help please!
Avatar f tn I recently was hospitalised with hemiplegic migraine and osteoarthritis in my spine. I had 4 lumbar punctures which made me almost paralysed but I had no headaches, only leg pains. Everything serious has been ruled out but no one at my local hospital would treat me and I was shunted around the hospital until I lost my temper and said I was leaving with force if need be !

Avatar f tn Cashgora, try going to www.gicare.com and click on the 'diet' category. Look for a listing for gastroparesis diet. It may give you some helpful hints.
Avatar f tn I have had a migraine for about 7 days now and for the first couple of days I took excederin but then by the third I tried the sumatriptan but neither seemed to be anything more than temporary relief so I have not taken any medicine in the past three days and have started this new diet. As for the beta blocker here is my real concern... I don't have health insurance but I was recently able to speak with a doctor (family friend) who offered to write me a prescription.
Avatar n tn chris2989, is your mom needing to lose some weight, is that why you want her to try the hcg? Well here was the diet I've been on. I was drinking a slim fast drink for breakfast, apple for a snack, slim fast bar for lunch, and then for dinner 1 boneless, skinless piece of chicken grilled with 1 cup of veggies (no butter or anything) and a half a cup of brown wild rice every other day. That's it.
1619005 tn?1298868460 Motrin and other medications do nothing for this pain, whereas with the osteoarthritis in my spine, it helps quite a bit. I was given prednisone for a muscle tear in my shoulder a few months ago, and felt amazing - had so much energy! Apparently this is in the treatment for PMR. I am trying to figure out a diet/treatment plan that will help with all these conditions. I am trying to get in to see my doctor to get a referral for a rheumatologist to hopefully get all this figured out.
Business woman2 Well trying to psych myself out to get ready for the diet day. I am really not looking forward to this but I MUS do it. My biggest problem is that I have MS and osteoarthritis with complete deterioration of the cartilage in my knees so I can not walk. Make it hard to loose weight. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
199177 tn?1490502134 Nutritional Supplements There is solid evidence indicating that glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate are effective for knee osteoarthritis. These natural compounds were found to decrease pain and increase mobility of the knee and were well tolerated and safe. Other dietary supplements, such as fish oils, also show some evidence of benefit, although more research is needed. Herbal Remedies It has been difficult to draw conclusions about the effectiveness of herbs.
Avatar f tn I don't know if the rheumatologist would do just blood tests to see if you have an autoimmune arthritic rheumatoid arthritis, gout, lupus) problem or whether he also does xrays to show up degenerative changes in the bones (osteoarthritis). As you had blood tests done, I presume your blood levels were fine? Best wishes.
Avatar f tn Basically my jaw kept popping in and out of place more frequently since my second go at having braces, which finished up back a year ago or so but it's been getting progressively worse, notably since August I can't open my mouth properly anymore and no I haven't been diagnosed officially by a doctor, last time I went with two complaints, jaw and heart so she told me my heart one was more serious and ignored my jaw.
Avatar f tn Hi there I am 35 years old and have been dealing with so many medical issues this year that I am frustrated and just looking for answers and support.. I was diagnosed 9months ago with celiac after dealing with a lot of abdominal issues I was able to get in to see a GI and that was my diagnosis after a biopsy of my small intestine.
483733 tn?1326802046 I have not altered my diet yet. I have spoken to people who have had lupus for many (10+) years who state that the more they can avoid processed foods the better they feel. Not sure if this is specific to lupus or just in general human bodies do better with less processed more natural foods. I can't help you with information on drug interactions with wine. I don't have any knowledge in this area. Main organs they worry about with lupus are liver and kidney.
735676 tn?1257575826 I'm currently in the process (the very beginning stages) of filling out the forms for SSDI due to this. I think SSDI is for those who have worked and SSI are for those who were never able to, is that right? At any rate, I'm told it takes about six months to be approved, but I also know there is a lengthy approval process. Any help, advice, thoughts, tips that you would be willing to share would be great.
Avatar m tn That's a critical benefit, but there's also a steady stream of other compelling reasons to take it, Dr. Cooperman says. For instance, Vitamin D has been linked to reduced levels of depression, reduced risk of colorectal cancer, and less chance of a heart attack. Dose: 1,000 IU Vitamin D4/day Fish Oil Problem: Heart disease Loaded with the essential omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, fish oil can reduce triglycerides, boost HDL cholesterol, and lower blood pressure.
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 I am on Evista for my osteoporosis, Prevacid and Zantac for my gastritis, Librium and Liubrax for my Crohns (unable to take any of the Crohns meds). Had an infected middle toe that is pretty much OK now between soaking and Bactroban. I am underweight and trying to gain, had a mastectomy (no chemo/radiation), had severe hyperthyroidism which I took the radio active iodine pill for and my numbers are now in the normal range after 3 years. I am afraid to add any more dugs to my plate esp.
Avatar f tn Yes, it's a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory. Under indications, it says: "for the control of pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis in dogs." Good luck! I know I hate to see any of my 4 pups in pain!
Avatar n tn I've been in severe pain for 15 years, and it keeps getting worse. My doctor put me on Hydrocodone 10/660 about 10 years ago, and it has worked wonders and kept my pain level down to a 2 (scale 1-10). Now, I'm told she can't prescribe it for me anymore, and has cut me back to 10-335. I feel like I've gone backwards in time. I'm back to soaking me feet in ice water, and coating my feet with Capazation, just for a little bit of temporary relief. She says she will not put me back on 10-660.
Avatar n tn Has anyone had surgery for a pinched nerve @ L4-5? What was involved in the procedure? How long was recovery time? Any complications? Was it successful? Also, any questions I should ask the surgeon that I may not have thought of already? Thanks!
1652468 tn?1302904098 Start with no weight and gradually work up to heavier weights. For the elderly and those with more advanced osteoarthritis, I suggest avoiding weights and instead use calisthenics. As you improve, you can add some light weights. Regular exercise will not only improve joint stability but will also aid in weight control. Exercise also reduces inflammation. Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption. Both of these bad habits increase free radical generation and inflammation.
Avatar m tn effect of acupuncture in the treatment of back, neck, and shoulder pain, osteoarthritis, and headaches. Physical and massage therapy has been shown to be as good as surgery for painful conditions such as torn cartilage and arthritis. Astaxanthin is one of the most effective fat-soluble antioxidants known. It has very potent anti-inflammatory properties and in many cases works far more effectively than anti-inflammatory drugs.
Avatar n tn If weight loss, diet, stress and meds are not a issue and you follow all the guide lines. Who to ask? Thanks for the ear...........
Avatar f tn I currently am on Phentermine 37.5 mg once a day for weight loss, I have been taking since January 2012. Can I take Topiramate (not sure what milligram) along with Phentermine for increased weight loss. I have lost 50 pounds since January 2012, but I quit losing weight about 9 months ago. The Phentermine still curb my appetite, and I still am watching my portions, but seem to be stuck at losing more weight. I have degenerative disc desease, osteoarthritis, gout and fybromialgia.

Avatar f tn I had to completely change my diet to a fat free one and go on pepcide(the little white ones) twice a day. For months I was on Pain pills but then they figured it out! don't give up, find someone who cares. I took me a long time but it was possible, I am on my last week of TX and truthfully , and through allot of friends on bad days I took pain pills, just non -aspirin tylonol etc.
82861 tn?1333457511 He's had loose stools off and on and has lost a lot of weight. I've used moulting and conditioning vitamins as a supplement for several years, but it's not making any difference now obviously. He does eat his regular seed, but not as much, and has trouble with his old favorite sunflower seeds. A spray of fresh millet gets the biggest reaction out of him these days.
