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.
5081736 tn?1363314667 You should also wear comfortable foot wear. If these tips help lower the foot pain, you could touch the black spot and see if it is still painful. I am sorry, but you need to see a doctor regarding this. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history.
Avatar n tn Some GASTRIC REFLUX TIPS (without acid blockers): GER=Gastro-Esophageal Reflux. (Gastro=stomach. Esophagus=food tube.) LPR= Laryngeal-Pharyngeal Reflux. (Larynx=voice box, containing the 2 vocal cords. Pharynx=throat, above the larynx. The larynx is above the trachea/windpipe.
Avatar f tn Also try removing high fat foods from your diet as well, the symptoms you are suffering may be related to your gall bladder, gall stones are quite common in overweight people and relatively easy to remove.I also suggest a visit to your doctor. Your legs could be one of many things. From what you have told us, it seems that you may have oedema, this is quite common in overweight people aswell. It is a build up of interstitial fluid.
10175413 tn?1427173851 I've been seeing a rheumatologist for a couple of years now for cpdd/pseudo gout, bursitis, and osteoarthritis. I believe my Hep C and cirrhosis caused my bone and inflammation problems; not the Sovaldi/Olysio. However, the S/O did make the pain worse for a solid six months. I think this was due to extra inflammation. I totally agree with Scottie in that the drugs they give us can make things worse. Even if you have a good liver, the new drugs like Enbrel can destroy it - or your kidneys.
Avatar f tn I have all the symptoms of Fibro, all the pressure points, and three separate doctors have diagnosed me that way and told me there was nothing they could do for me. Then I was told I have Celiac. I have been on a gluten-free diet for a week and a half, and I feel at least 20% better already. I can't believe it. In all these years no one even thought to check me for Celiac. So please, everyone who reads this, make sure you've been checked for Celiac as well. The symptoms can be nearly identical.
735676 tn?1257575826 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. Unfortunately this is what it has come down to, and I have had to leave a couple of jobs before due to this, so I am trying to get going on the SSDI since I truly feel that I am no longer able to work. Thanks, everyone!
Avatar n tn Is the pain only at the tip or the whole joint is involved? Can be osteoarthritis or gout. Do you have numbness of the index finger along with the pain? if yes, it could be carpal tunnel syndrome as it involves index finger mainly. Another possibility is of Raynaud’s phenomenon which is constriction of the blood vessels of the fingers and toes. But it is accompanied by skin color changes. Apply ice compresses over the finger. You can also take OTC pain killers. They should help.
5792205 tn?1374360715 I pretty much keep to myself at work, but I'm trying to get back to living and socializing after several tough years. I was first diagnosed with osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease, and spinal stenosis in my early 30's. By my early 40's I've had back surgery, both hips replaced, random bone fractures, and a couple of "minor" surgeries for other issues. I've also suffered from pretty bad fatigue for most of my life.
Avatar m tn Acetaminophen/Paracetamol (Crocin - brand name popular in India) may also be used to relieve the pain of osteoarthritis (arthritis caused by the breakdown of the lining of the joints). Acetaminophen is in a class of medications called analgesics (pain relievers) and antipyretics (fever reducers). It works by changing the way the body senses pain and by cooling the body." Again talk to her doctor it depends on her complete health.
Avatar f tn Also, I have tried many of the diet tips you guys have suggested and read everything I can get my hands on for self-help. As for being too hungry in the morning, my problem is I never feel hunger until my stomach starts hurting.

1438412 tn?1315511519 Just a couple of suggestions; as we get to know you, maybe we'll have more. Also eating a diet rich in protein and fiber will keep you filled up, so maybe you won't feel so hungry, plus there are a lot of foods that are low calorie, so you can eat all you want.
Avatar n tn Any helpful tips?? Any diet tips? My Dr. seems to think the meds are working just fine, I don't need to be overly concerned w/diet, etc. I diagree! Just no alcohol, no smoking, no fried foods he says!!!
Avatar n tn My next appointment is Jan 9th. It is a tough time to start a diet, but I really like him!! They take their time with you, go over your medical history to make sure it is safe for you, and answer any questions. I have been on his program for three weeks now and I LOVE it! The first week I lost 6lbs (mostly water weight), and since then I haven't weighed. But, I can feel my clothes fitting better. Let me know if you have any questions!!!
Avatar m tn In the meantime have a healthy and well balanced diet with lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, lean meat and fish and drink plenty of fluids (non alcoholic), especially water so that you do not become dehydrated. Cut out or cut down on junk foods, processed and refined foods, sugary foods, sweets, cakes, chocolates etc. and fizzy drinks. Try and get to do some exercise everyday like going for a walk.

Avatar n tn I have Crohn's as well - had an ileostomy on 2/2/88 - my osteoarthritis has been developing for 15 years or so - all the fingers of my left hand are somewhat deformed from it. So far 2 fingers of my right hand have the arthritis deformity. Today I was diagnosed with GOUT of all things - it formed in the first joint of the middle finger of my right hand (hurts to be typing this). I'm back on prednisone for 5 days and Aleve.
Avatar n tn From reading the book, Boost Your Immune System, I learned that arthrtis pain can be reduced by eating a more alkaline diet. Turn to a more vegan diet. Whole wheat products, FRESH or frozen fruits and veggies, but not canned. In a few months you will notice improvement. Drink fresh, clean water all day, every day. Flush out the toxins. Processed foods, sugar (and all the names they give to the various forms of sugar), white flour products and meat contribute to an acidic body.

Avatar f tn I too have type 2 diabetes, and fibro, and also throw in degenerative osteoarthritis. At one time I was seeing a phusical therapist, for the fibro. I had lots of fatty lumps as you describe them. The PT said they were from myofascial spasm syndrome. He would exert hard pressure to break them up. Stripping up and down my arms, legs, ribcage, exc. Left lots of bruises. Over the years they have come back.
Avatar m tn so I have printed it out and will be analyzing what my approach will be. I was very interested in so many tips you gave me that are simple changes to diet...such as tomatoes being too harsh, no vinegar (I hadn't thought of this) with my salads, milk/ cream a potential problem, too many oranges/strawberries (my favorite)etc. I don't purchase any non-organic meats to eat so I know the additive problem isn't an issue for me..thank goodnes for organic farms!...
Avatar n tn I feel like I am reading myself. I have the same problems with my back. I am unable to stand or walk for no more than a minute or two. I have been diagnosed with Degenerative Disc Disease & Osteoarthritis. I have 2 discs in my back that are completely dried out. Absolutely no fluid. So it is just vertebrae on vertebrae. Because of my weight i feel like my dr's wont help me. But please tell me if I am in constant ppain and unable to get around how am i suppose to lose weight??
748543 tn?1463449675 I went to yoga class for a few years and wore my splint at night off and on for several years, but eventually I stopped each. He did mention that I would have a risk of developing osteoarthritis later in life in my right jaw. Forward on to 2016 and I started to notice my neck and shoulders tightening. I do not know if there is an association but last summer I did fall off a boat and hit my head on a wood dock .....I ended up cracking the 2x4 where my head landed....
Avatar n tn Hi Dear Synvisc is used to relieve knee pain due to osteoarthritis (OA). It is approved for those patients who do not get adequate relief from painkillers such as acetaminophen, or from exercise and physical therapy. Synvisc is injected directly into the joint to restore the lubricating properties of normal joint fluid. The therapy is generally well tolerated. However, it may not work for everyone.
Avatar n tn Fatigue comes and goes in intensity, but overall awful. Finally, years ago diagnosed w/osteoarthritis in hip. Now experience constant pain in hip, knees, right shoulder and occasionally jaw, wrists, knuckes. Vision seems blurred, even with glasses - tho' usually if I concentrate can focus.
