osteoarthritis

Avatar n tn It should take about 2 months to get to that dosage but I'm getting kinda excited hearing about the benefit of weight loss especially since it was weight loss pills (metabolife and xenedrine) that caused me to find out that I was epileptic in the first place! The doctor told me that i might get tingling in my fingers and i might feel a little dopy but happy dopy he described it as, so I figure i can deal with that! If I start losing weight at a rapid pace i'll definitely post again!
Avatar n tn I understand that it takes a long time to get this drug out of your system and the weight loss is very slow. I think that most of the 4 pound weight loss is because I fasted for a few days and took UltraClear which is a powdered "metabolic detoxification" product you mix with water. I used to only be able to get it through a doctor but now it is avaibale on the internet. It is a de-tox flush that I thought would help get Lexapro out of my system. I think it has helped.
Avatar f tn This way you will see how foods you consumed, along with weight loss and exercise, affected your glucose levels. Buy a reputable 'name' brand meter. Read the instructions carefully. Some meters require calibration prior to use. If you're uncertain on what to buy call your doctor's office and ask for their suggestion. In any case try to keep a daily log of your test results, average them out weekly then monthly, then your 3 mo avg. Take a copy of your log to the doctor's office.
Avatar f tn At consultation today he has ordered fecal calprotectin assay test on stool,blood panel (wbc, renal, liver and bone, c-reactive protein) and is scheduling a small bowel endoscopy as he feels the problem with explosive diarrhea, severe lower abdominal pain, significant weight loss (some 20 lbs in last 5 months)and extreme fatigue may be caused by inflammation in small bowel. It is some 14 yrs since I have had any investigations in the small bowel. Problem now is what to do next?
Avatar n tn of course ! unless you the 2 male things we have down there..stop it..HCG does not in anyway help with weight loss..need proof...just ask...
Avatar n tn I was told to do strengthening at the gym and lose weight. I embarked on a weight loss program and lost 40 lbs over 1 1/2 year and started to walk and then joined a gym. I did the eliptical, the treadclimber, and weight machines until Oct of last year, I started 3-4 x weekly classes. Then my gym closed and I moved to another one, with better classes that challenged me more and I increased my routine with more sqats and lunges in a body pump class, and that is when my knee (l) acted up.
Avatar n tn I've just recently noticed the elbow thing and am FREAKED OUT! I do believe it's related to hormones but could also be illness and weight loss... But the good news is that I do find that my hands really respond when I moisturize and - a big help - use gloves when I wash dishes. The other thing is I recently lost a bunch of weight too, and that's when I noticed the skin on my elbows. I think at least some of the problem is from the weight loss, which makes some sense.
Avatar f tn THE ONLY SIDE EFFECT FOR ME WAS 30LB WEIGHT LOSS, COMMON SIDE EFFECT (GOOGLE IT) OTHER THEN THAT OF COURSE YOU WILL READ HORROR STORIES OF DIFFERENT MEDS ALL THE TIME, NEVER READ THINGS ONLINE BECAUSE IT JUST MAKES YOU WORRY.
Avatar n tn But I have a question for all of you that have already had this surgery. I havent had any extreme weight gain in the past 13 years and now my weight went from 140-188 in about 8 months. Doctors say im just at that age, and that I just need to exercise more, but I already do. I am just wondering if anyone else has had this problem or may know whats causing it.
Avatar n tn When did your pain begin, what were you doing at the time, and what were the initial symptoms? Grinding is characteristic of osteoarthritis; locking and catching are characteristic of meniscus injuries and osteochondritis dissecans (meniscus injuries are much more common than osteochondritis dissecans); and giving way is more characteristic of ligamentous injuries. Are there any positions that make your knee more or less comfortable?
Avatar f tn I have had osteoarthritis in by back for years, and my gut feelingis that this related. But it's just a guess. I can totally sympathize with everyone else who's had these symptoms! It's very unnerving.
Avatar n tn Needless to say, having an idea of a diagnosis and a direction to head has lifted a huge weight off my mind and shoulders. I hope any other LBP sufferers in the greater Boston area who come across this thread look into Dr. Pfeifer in Burlington. Best of luck to you, and speedy treatment!
Avatar n tn The embarrasement that you will face now will be minimum to what you will face once your addiction goes full blown. Jail, loss of children, spouse, family. These drugs can and do destroy lives.It may take 15 years, but eventually it will happen. Get help NOW !!!!
Avatar n tn I am very active and have been regularly working out using the Eliptical, Treadmill and the Arc Trainer plus doing the weight machines and lunges and squats and have never had a problem now all of a sudden I cannot fully bend my knee or it feels like it is burning and tearing.
Avatar n tn I am a 53 year old female, non-smoker and have no weight problems, and no known health problems. Over the past two years, I've had numerous episodes where my body takes involuntary deep breaths, one every 7-8 minutes, interspersed with my normal breathing. The intake of breath can be when inhaling or exhaling, and it when it occurs, it disrupts a normal breath. Often the involuntary breath feels "catchy" as if I'd been crying or sobbing when in fact I have not.
Avatar n tn During the time of the pain I've gone from extremely out of shape, to fairly fit, and back again. No changes. No major weight changes either. Has anyone tired massage yet? Sounds like I don't need to bother with sleeping pills, and better if I don't.
Avatar n tn prescribed them for my osteoarthritis in my knee's, and Wow! It sure took the pain way! However, had I known the addictive nature and how hard it is to come off these, I would have never started taking them. During those 7 months there were times when I'd have to wait a day to pick up a new prescription and there go a day without them. Those were rough days.. I'd have zero energy, could barely make it to the kitchen from the livingroom and got the restless legs at night.
Avatar n tn My assumption is weight gain and/or salt/water retention. When I exercise and lose some water weight I don't get this pain. I have a desk job and eat alot of salty foods and don't drink enough water- I'm curious what everyones habits are. 1) High salt diet? 2) Sedentary through day? 3) Recent weight gain (or have been overweight for years)? I'm guessing the weight pressure is what causes the pain specifically during long lapses of sleep.
Avatar f tn I actually was up to working out 6 days a week, and doing heavy cardio on top of weight training. At the moment, I dont think I'll be able to work a year from now, at least a full 50-60 hour work week, if I continue to decline as rapidly as I have been.
Avatar n tn I have chiari type 2. Had the surgery on sept 17,2001. I believe I was 18-22mm descended than. not sure now though as I have not had another MRI since. Recently I had a significant neck pain issue that got so bad, so quick, that I had to buy a recliner and sleep in that for 3 months because I could not lay down without pain. Has anyone experienced something this bad post surgery... so far along after surgery? I am now so scared to do anything physical or risk another episode..
551343 tn?1506834118 I have had viral Meningitis, Bell's Palsy, Hypothyroidism, Costochondritis, Fasciitis, Dizziness/Vertigo while driving, random tingling/numbness in hands, feet, lips, and nose, burning or irritation in ears, anxiety due to the Costochondritis, and sleep apnea. I've been involved in 4 accidents where the vehicle was a loss (always the other person's 'fault'/citation) but with only whiplash for injuries. I've also had at least two embedded deer ticks.
