6246858 tn?1382272876 I have been devastated over the loss of my TWO babies...Sugar and Spike. Un-explained illness and death to both of my young dogs. I have determined that Spike's Renal failure and ultimately his death was due to CHICKEN JERKY TREATS MADE BY CANYON CREEK, HEALTHY HIPS made in China!! Please let everyone in this pet community get the word out and contact your state FDA complaint line to report any illness from your dog or cat eating these treats!
724734 tn?1230944872 both the moove from the nowhere in africa to Berlin and the death of my father beamed me out of this world(in feelings). This is some of the mental part of it. This always being unsecure with noone to run to thinking in existential ways like: Will we be able to live in Germany without my father. s.o. Now the "physical" part. After researching a lot a doctop had an idea: Due to antibiotics over a long time my intestine got messed up. so the theory.
Avatar m tn Yes, 20 days of doxy is the 'standard' treatment, but many fine and knowledgeable MDs believe that this 'standard' is hugely inadequate because of the particular characteristics of Lyme. One of those characteristics is a very slow reproductive cycle compared to other bacteria, and it is when dividing that bacteria are most susceptible to antibiotics.
Avatar n tn Sometimes when we'd ask him to squeeze my hand he would, but most of the time he did not. What I know of cirrhosis, is that it is a slow and painful death. My mother died years ago of cancer -- cirrhosis is not so very much different, is it.
Avatar n tn I had to watch one of our beloved Dobes die a long, slow, painful "natural" death when my husband couldn't bear the thought of euthanasia. That poor dogs final 2 weeks will be forever etched in my mind with shame that I didn't intervene over my husbands wishes. He literally drowned slowly and painfully in his own fluids in front of our eyes. I still cry to this day, remembering his suffering and pain. You made the absolute right decision.
Avatar n tn I was cutting hair in a barber shop 15 years ago, and suddenly felt like I was going to faint. I staggered, and had to go sit down. I've been dizzy off and on ever since. I had all kinds of tests, and finally went to a neurologist. After MRI's, EEG's, spinal taps, etc., he told me it was "probable" that I had MS. (Multiple Sclerosis). As scary as that sounds, it was better than some of the other "options" like brain or eye tumors, or spinal tumors.
Avatar n tn I was wondering if 5HTP during the final stages of the weaning off of the SSNI's would help control some of worse withdrawals when the dosage is stopped completely.
Avatar n tn They finally saw a doctor who diagnosed a brain disorder - i think a portion of the brain was swollen. The child had surgery and almost immediately began sleeping normally at night. I'm not sure if back pain was involved with this child. Now, this is a simple t.v. story and I would not pretend to know a thing about your situation. But I mention it only as one possibility, something to question and look into.

Avatar n tn i see my neuro doc in a couple of weeks and will ask him to explain more fully the lesions and abnormalities in my brain. i know what you mean about being afraid that it's MS or ALS. i try not think about it and just get thru the day. i am not hurting as much today as i thought i would be. cleaning my spare room was a marathon event. i also cooked a dinner made from scratch. today i am not going to push myself as hard.
Avatar n tn From what I read recently, some papers have explored the possible brain damages of IFN and their symptoms. Here are the names of the articles, I can't give direct link, you have to go on Medline site ( and writte the title in Search/for : 1. Raison CL et al. Interferon-alpha effects on diurnal hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis activity: relationship with proinflammatory cytokines and behavior.Mol Psychiatry. 2008 Jun 3 2. Majer M et al.
604197 tn?1292308636 If the sensory cortex in the brain has been bruised because of your injury, a gradual recovery of sensation may be possible. If the area has been torn, it is unlikely to return to normal functioning. Eat a hot meal with a cold salad for different temperature experiences. Try spicy food from Eastern cuisines that cause sensations on the tongue. The object is to take some time to make meals interesting and fun, so it is still appealing to eat and feel satisfied afterwards.http://braininjury.
Avatar n tn I have also tried 5-HTP to regulate serotonin levels (it didn't work for me at all and also left what I call dry head, feeling of dehydration of the brain) Valerian root Dropping multi vitamins (to reduce the B count). Gaba, an herbal Valium like root (causes dehydration feeling of the brain) but is very relaxing. coffea cruda (homeopath) this is used just to stop excessive thinking before sleep and works very very well for me.

Avatar n tn Your sister would still have benefited from treatment even at her stage. Radiation to her brain could have shrunk her tumor and relieved some of the symptoms she was feeling.
Avatar n tn I have yet to find a definite answer, though I have had my hormones tested and discovered all of my hormones are out of balance. I'm in the process of trying bioidentical hormone replacement to see if that helps. Hope you find some answers.
Avatar f tn The waiting game is the hardest and in the stages of a DX depression is common many of us have been where your at. Its okay to be angry,I was mad at the world as I first seen what this disease was taking from me,that has passed and I am back to my old self and fight this disease with a fighting positive attitude now. I'm also a single mother of children ,when I was originally DX'd they were 3,5,6 and my youngest is 12.
Avatar f tn Because of medication I am on for a brain tumor I had to test at the Dr. right away to be sure as I have to stop taking the meds. They had me do blood and urine as they weren't sure urine would test positive at only 4 weeks. They both came back positive and my quantity of HGC was at 121. Has anyone else known there level? This is my fourth baby and I have never been told my levels before. Hoping for the best!
4522800 tn?1470329434 I know I am getting older as everyone around me is. I turn on the News and it is all bad, bad, and worse. Today I cried and did pray hard. My 2 dads are slowing going down hill and my Mom is doing chemo. I KNOW we do not Live Forever. I can accept that. What really got me today was my 11 year old boy "Whiteface" It seems like ever since he had his surgery a couple of months ago it affected his brain.
Avatar m tn Your mother needs to see an oncologist to have an understanding of what is going on. I believe that the tumor or whatever cancer cells they found can be tested to know their origin. Personally, I have never heard of anyone having ovarian cancer, without some sort of mass in their pelvic region. Get a copy of your moms reports and seek other opinions. I think that there is information missing. Stage IV cancer is no longer a death sentence.
172023 tn?1334675884 The trips we took in the camper. The agony of the death of our beloved dog, that we faced together. The grave he silently dug there in the soil...I remember--this was the only time I ever saw him cry, silently digging that grave in the hard packed earth. (oh dear, this is not the direction I wanted to go). We just talked about the old times. Mr. Peek looked wistful. When we got home, I started crying alone in the guest room, as usual.

Avatar f tn Does this Complex Atypical Endometrial Hyperplasia mean pre-cancerous IS REALLY cancer up further in the uterous? They are scaring me to death, and I feel that some of the new -to -be Dr's at the Clinic are really guessing. Maybe I am wrong, but I do know treatment is much different if you have insurance.
Avatar n tn Her current chemo (5th) has just started as she had to have radiation therapy to treat a brain tumor. She will have her follow up scan for that in a couple of weeks. This is such a prevalent disease, I KNOW there MUST be statistics that plot the relative survival chances of Ovarian Cancer patients. WHY is this information SO hard to find?
1323357 tn?1274826939 Stress or fear produce a change in your brain chemistry ? an increase of adrenaline and decrease of dopamine - and this feeling of depersonalistion and derealisation is a result. You are not going insane and this will rebalance itself. What makes it persist is that usually a person does not know what it is and so worries/creates more stress this creates a self-perpetuating cycle.
Avatar n tn to make sure it is not a different kind of brain tumor. If cavernous hemangioma may benefit from gamma knife. Not sure as so deep in Thalmus. If no surgery indicated I will go about my life peacefully and chalk it up to increasing awareness.

Avatar f tn So if you look at the film it will say something weighted etc. That way they can tell if it is a cyst or tumor and the nature of it being cyst or tumor. Odd that they are not telling you anything at all though... you are her mother! Just FYI - some people are born with cysts - and they can get quite large so they need to be removed. Lets hope it is that. Keep us posted. I am moving over the next couple of days so if I am not responding - that is the reason.
