Avatar m tn Hello and thanks for your comments, My diet consists of a slim fast shake for breakfast 1 for dinner (240 cals each) and then a healthy lunch like pasta and chicken or pasta and tuna or jacket potato & tuna or rice and chicken etc etc my daily calorie intake is usually between 1000 calories & 1400 cals.
Avatar n tn I am normally of good health but very slim (always have been) and have not had any operations etc. I spend a lot of time sitting infront of the computer and I know my posture is not good. I should also get a lot more exercise. I will try to describe my symptoms as best I can. SYMPTOMS: 2 years ago I started to get air coming up the oesophagus and bouts of nausea that did not last long.
Avatar n tn 96. I went and had more blood work done monday and still have not received a call from my doctor. I am just nervous and feel bad. I was just talking with guys at work and they never heard of men having thyroid problems, and then I check on line and it is rare. I was just wondering if anyone here knows of any men who have thyroid problems? And if my 16.96 TSH is something to be concerned about. THANKS!
Avatar n tn I've been taking 500mg metformin myself and I have not experienced any weight loss. I am actually taking it for diabetes treatment. But it has not helped with my weight loss.
Avatar m tn You were giving updated reports on your viral load and alt ast numbers. Its been awhile and just curious as to where you stand now.
Avatar f tn I assume the Kidneys and Liver are affected to Ishemia due to low BP? If they keep her BP maintained, then they should make a full recovery. It can take a while, as in a few days before you notice urine release increasing. Please keep us informed as to her progress, and I wish her a speedy recovery. Just to add. I would ensure they are taking EVERY precaution to prevent infection. This is the last thing she needs.
891909 tn?1246670715 I would recommend you pursue with your doctor getting a 24 hour urine protein and creatinine test and an ultrasound of your kidneys to get checked out and getting your BUN repeated, if it hasn't been done already.
Avatar n tn Hi I have had pulsing in my head,only since yesterday.They are short and fast pules, and it only lasts about 10 seconds at the most.. but it is very painful. I am 30 years old, and exercise regulary and eat plenty of fruits, veggies, good fats, fish, meat, grains and fibre. I have a pretty stress free life, and am a pretty happy person. I do get head aches often.. sometimes migranes, but this isn't a typical head ache.. its so fast and short that i have no idea what could be causing this??
Avatar m tn i ll stay with one cap for about 5 days but not scared at all of intf sides if they clear some virus my doc/researcher point of view is liver is ok now (feb fibroscan was 5.6kpa and in fast monthly reduction) and he points to immune system boosting with intf add on.
Avatar f tn I have tingling in my lower left back-it started about two years ago. It's much worse when i sit down. It has also started traveling to my shoulder blades, mostly on the right side and to my head. I also have a cough that has lasted for two months, and sometimes i think i have asthma because it feels hard to breathe. I also feel like i have a tightness on my chest with a slight burning sensation and my breasts feel sore and kind of heavy. I'm 51 and going through peri-menopause.
Avatar n tn this has happened in the space of six months and im 56 years old! My breasts are also going south fast and inner thighs sagging to my knees. My hair is now about hald the volume of one year hair, arms and especially legs were my biggest assets but now I havte them. I am taking collagen supplements, having treatment from a trichologist, taking chinese herbs and nothing is improving. I have had four painful sessions on the Accent machine for my arms which didnt work.
Avatar n tn or 5) just getting out of the car too fast (like when you bend over and stand up too fast and get dizzy. But just yesterday, it happened after I arrived home from work, thus my first posting on this site. I was really amazed to find so many others experiencing the same thing. BTW, I have had a few migraines in my life, not many, and I do not agree that these little episodes are migraine-related.
Avatar n tn Hi, I'm interested in taking these b-12 shots and along with that I've found that they give you phenermin and also a water pill.I met this lady whom has lost 30 lbs. and she feels great and looks good.

174267 tn?1220408828 I can't believe it's here already. It seemed to take forever a month or so ago and now it's going so fast. My god! Anyway, don't worry chicky about the next bloodtest. I can totally relate to how you said it doesn't feel real. I know that's exactly how I'm going to feel b/c when it happens for me I know i'll have to be pinched a hundred times. Tell me how your b/t goes and then next week I can't wait to hear if 1 or 2. I hope we can go through being PG together!!!!
Avatar n tn The fact that you cannot control or stop it is the worst i've been given tablets but it happens so fast it's too late and any tablets i take don't act fast enough and as if being at work when this happens is not bad enough what's awful as well is if your out or at someones house i have to make a mad rush for it or just deal with severe humiliation the worst was when trying to get home quickly and with noone i knew living close by and once the cramps set in i had no control and soiled myself in
Avatar n tn Simple question here, has anyone ever had a negative blood test and negative urine test and went on with their daily routine and a month or so later found out you were in fact pregnant while having ultrasound done. If this has happened to anyone or perhaps someone you know, please respond, I'd appreciate the information. Thanks.

663073 tn?1260540720 I do not eat meat, my body does not do good with it and also I cannot afford the health food store meats without the growth hormones and dyes. I miss pepsi and fast foods...and about once a month, I choose to indulge. My liver complains, but, hay...the rest of the month I am good to it. In stage 4, there are a lot of days that it is hard to even get out of bed, due to the fatigue and I have a lot of pain, but, I make myself get up, clean up, and contact at lest one person. And, I game.
Avatar n tn I have been going to YMCA in Downey.It is fun and on Slim-Fast + protein only when i work out.I don't eat extra protein when i don't work out.too much protein can be bad and fatal.It can screw up and damage my kidneys being diabetic.So i'lll see what the doctor says.That was fast,2 weeks and they say YES.While i wait i will get into shape at the "Y".
1408746 tn?1283678948 I was originally Diagnosed with Pelvic Congestion after complaining for many years of Chronic pelvic pain, left sided flank pain, lower back, and lower limbs. My husband and I were also trying to conceive for 6 years and all the doctors could tell me was that I had a great looking uterus. I did, however have low ovarian reserve for someone my age. They finally listened to my pleas of pain in my pelvic and did a pelvic MRI on me only to discover I had Pelvic Congestion. I was dumbfounded.
Avatar n tn Hello, I'm a 45 year old male with MS and chronic heartburn. Currently on 20 mg of Losec (Prilosec in the US). For the last few years I have had the strange sensation of an internal organ fluttering inside of my mid body. It goes from happening 1-3 times a day, to once a week or longer. It is generally felt in my back, starting at the same height as the bottom of my rib cage, sometimes a little higher. Periodically, it is felt towards the front of my body, above my stomach.
378497 tn?1232147185 One exception--the mocha cappuccino Slim-Fast shakes stay with me all day and into the evening, no matter what. The smell is waaay stronger than coffee pee, and way stronger than even if I actually had drunk a cappuccino or other espresso drink.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Everyone, We're so glad to see you here. Please come in and make yourself at home.

184674 tn?1360864093 I've never much liked to talk to him for very long because he's kinda strange. Usually he comes up behind me and lightly pinches my bicep when he sees me, and says, "Wow, you're feeling good today!" It's just weird. He once tried to set me up with his 40-something year old son a year or so ago because he wanted his son to find a girl "with a good head on her shoulders.
Avatar n tn They told me that on a scale of 1-10, I was a 10. Ketoacidosis is no joke. Your kidneys will fail you and shut down. Get to a doctor ASAP.
544292 tn?1268886268 I believe in you!
Avatar f tn She will probably always be bigger because i'm no little girl (short 5'4 but not slim) and her dad is 6'3 250. I dont want her to be chubby though, just healthy. I am trying to be very cautions about what she eats. I want her to be healthy but there is no need for her to be overweight. Her next appointment is mid-Nov. Cant wait to see what she weighs now. She's probably 18 lbs. I wouldnt doubt it. She's growing at a remarkable rate..
Avatar m tn If the pain went away with drinking water, you were probably a little bit dehydrated, and that might have irritated your bladder and urethra. You are really at very low risk for an std here, and if you can't sleep, or eat, anxiety is your problem, not this sexual encounter.
544292 tn?1268886268 Good Evening Tramadol Warriors! Welcome. Please come on in. You are most welcome to snuggle in and make yourself cozy & comfortable. It can be a rough ride. But better with friends. All are welcome!
