Avatar f tn Depending on your pre-pregnancy weight it's suggested you gain upto 30lbs during pregnancy.
Avatar f tn Have you gained a lot of weight firing your pregnancy? And how are your eating habits during your pregnancy? I have never had my dr tell me that I need to stop gaining weight and some can't help it. I gained 60-70 lbs with both of my previous pregnancies and I eat fairly healthy I just gain a lot of pregnancy weight.
3055553 tn?1346562133 Hi Codielou I am in the UK and unfortunately endo is very badly managed over here. It's an effort just to get a diagnosis so pain management is unheard of! I am also allergic to paracetamol and codine so the only pain killer I can take is Ibroprofen and I am currently over dosing on them.
Avatar f tn in this context. You manage your own growth (your weight gain or loss in pregnancy) but there is little enough anyone can do to manage the fetus' growth.
Avatar n tn with your successful management of PTC so far it is unlikelyyou will have problems in pregnancy as long as you are followed by your neurologist even if visual problems do occur they can be managed PTC should not be a reason to terminate a pregnancy Evans RW, Friedman DI. The management of PSeudotumor Cerebri during pregnancy.
Avatar f tn I was taking it because I thought it could help me lose weight and give me energy. I found out that it metabolized into a substance just like amphetamines do and can give you a false pos. I mentioned it to the doctor but he does not believe that can really happen. I had to bring him some research on the subject before he would believe me.
Avatar f tn I am currently 6 weeks and 1 day pregnant. My pre-pregnancy weight is 232. Is it safe to diet and exercise while pregnant?
Avatar m tn This has also, I believe, helped to increase my typical blood pressure readings to above normal (very healthy 28-year-old, otherwise. I work out, am at healthy weight, etc.). I'm on meds for blood pressure and have been taking Klonopin as-needed for panic attacks and other severe anxiety bouts. But recently, after an extended period of high anxiety I visited a psychiatrist who told me to try Zoloft and take Klonopin every day for a month, then taper down and go back to using as needed.
1035252 tn?1427231433 that's how I was viewing the situation but I'm sure you know what it feels like to doubt yourself when it comes to pain management...I'm so frustrated and I've gotten to the point where we've tried nearly every common and uncommon treatment for migraines (including acupuncture, vitamin therapy, diet changes...etc) and I wear sunglasses every time I step out of my house, even if it's cloudy out...
Avatar f tn Seeing as your Doc says you are carrying a big boy, im sure most of the weight is from baby =) i gained 33lbs my whole pregnancy...i went into labor with MilanaLyn at 37 weeks and she was 8lbs 7oz. I lost the weight pretty quick after that. Everyone is different. My Doc also told me not the gain more than 25lbs...i told him to buzz off lol!
Avatar n tn Have you begun your journey to long lasting weight management? I would not join weight-watchers or slimming world, as about 60% of our customers have failed on these diets and then succeeded on ours. Why not fill in our free online body fat analysis... We have found that over the years the one key factor that determines how successful you will ultimately be is your personal motivation and desire to achieve your best possible personal shape.
199177 tn?1490502134 Please welcome TooManyAdvil she is one of the community leaders of the pain management forum . She will be answering questions today and tomorrow about Alternative Pain Management and Medicines . She will be here for the next two days so we should all have time to ask our questions........... I am very happy to give any new suggestions or ideas in treating pain without the use of opioids or narcotics that I can. I'm definitely not a certified herbalist, homeopathic or DR.
Avatar n tn and once I have completed the antibiotics is there a chance of losing the weight? or at least stopping the weight gain. Aside from the vanity point of losing the weight I am sure it makes the arthritis and numbness worse to be carrying around 40 - 50 extra pounds. I simply don't know how to fix this problem, as crazy as that sounds.
Avatar f tn anyone familiar or heard, know, experienced taking subutex while pregnant? i am now on 1mg per day and there is limited studies. please help.
Avatar f tn I wanted to post something on the topic as I am a Chronic Pain patient who has become pregnant. I'm currently in my 23rd week of the pregnancy and am having trouble finding a Pain Management Provider who will see a pregnant woman, or a high-risk OB who will treat Chronic Pain. I have been told that Maternal-Fetal Medicine Speicalists will provide pain relief for pregnant chronic pain patients, however I been told that mine will not.
Avatar n tn i started to miscarriage on my own during the time, and went back down to my 125 'pre-pregnancy weight'. i only gained 3 pounds during my pregnancy. immediately after my dnc, the very next day i went up to 132. i called the dr. they say it's water weight.. well p.s. two menstrual cycles later i'm still 132. i work out 5 days a week, eat very little, and yet still cannot lose the weight. i too feel it mostly in my stomach and legs. I am very disciplined...
Avatar n tn after my hysterectomy at 45yrs old I am gaining weight fast...never had mood swings or sweats...taking no harmones..does anything help?Trying all over the counter pills and etc. nothing working...HELP!!
Avatar n tn I have digenerative disc disease and my neirologist just prescribed topamax, he said it would help with the pain and tingling but could result in weight loss. I am wondering if prescribing topamax for ddd is common among neurologists? I can't seem to find any other information related to topamax as a pain med, only information I have is that it's a powerful drug with lots of side effects, most not so good. The weight loss aspect is the only plus...
Avatar n tn 7 just before pregnancy and now at 6.4. There are a few things that could be different with pregnancy but I would speak with your doctor. Large babies are a big thing with T1d's especially if uncontrolled. I had other complications also but everyone is different. Diabetics are considered high risk pregnancies but the right OB will become your Best friend! Best of luck!
1412606 tn?1282885729 he spoke to one about it, as he was curious about why they were there, and was told that methadone is the preferred pain management medication during pregnancy if abstinence cannot be practiced. you may want to get a professional opinion on that....hope this was helpful!
Avatar f tn Help on how to broach this topic!? I'm also terrified I'll be in terrible pain/anxiety throughout the pregnancy if I don't have medication. My heartbeat when I tried cold turkey spiked over 10 bpm resting daily and I was having panic attacks/pain flares.
Avatar n tn My husband and I are very excited expecting our first, but we are also very worried about how to manage my pain during the pregnancy. My doctor says that I should be OK taking my current dosages until the last term. Do you agree?
Avatar f tn My pain management doctor said Oxycodone is safe because it doesn't cross the placenta and that we would just taper towards my due date. I am prescribed Oxycodone 5mg 1-10 pills dails---so a max of 50mg per day. The last two I hovered around 7-8 per day. This week has been all 10 per day. I have acute chronic migraines and neck pain. I have two children, both of whom I just suffered with while pregnant. Easy, wonderful pregnancies, but I didn't take anything regularly.
649848 tn?1534637300 I regularly go to the gym 3-5 times a week for 30-60 minute workouts, and it is all I can do to not put on more pounds. My biggest impediment to better weight management is chronic Lyme disease, and specifically the constant debilitating fatigue it causes me. I work full time and pretty much go in between work and recovering from work.
Avatar n tn You need to talk to your OB about what is safe for pain management. Each pregnancy and other health problems in the mother require slightly unique medical management, which is why you don't want to self-medicate while you're pregnant. Some women who require narcotics or other drugs for pain or other conditions are referred to a high-risk OB. If your doctor believes you need to detox, he'll want to taper you off slowly. Severe withdrawal can be dangerous to your baby.
Avatar n tn I went on a diet for 2 weeks and I'm on Divalproex. I am NOT losing weight. If anything, I gained one kilo. I am really frustrated. What do I do?
Avatar f tn I dont care if I have to suffer for the next 4 months until my pregnancy is over. The guilt is starting to really depress me...My dr's keep saying that darvocet during pregnancy is safe, but my conscience is just really getting to me on this...I am PETROFIED of withdrawals though....Can anyone give me a tapering schedule? Please....I feel like I am losing my mind. Help me.
Avatar f tn , because pain management would be the biggest issue. There is no danger in being pregnant, but the added weight definitely adds to the pain. There are different approaches that can be taken. Some Dr's prescribe pain medication along with physical therapy and water therapy, some just prescribe pain medication, some just prescribe physical therapy. You know how you can tolerate the pain and what level you are at, so you should discuss it with your Dr.
