My story is quite lengthy so I will try and keep it brief. When I was 15, I blew a pupil and of course, doctors panicked. I had a CT scan which "showed something" and was sent for an MRI. The MRI came back as saying I had low-lying cerebellum and my family doctor waved it off, so I forgot about it. After many more tests and doctors, the pupil was later diagnosed as Adie's tonic pupil, even though my reflexes are still intact.
Now nearly 6 years later,

My symptoms are severe headaches, balance problems, slurred speech and trouble saying what I am thinking, trouble swallowing, loss of motor skills in hands, muscle weakness throughout body, drooping eyelid, blurry vision, dilated pupils, eye sensitivity, sensitive to loud and to many sounds at once, joint pain, muscle pain, sensation of someone digging their elbow in between my shoulder blades on my spi

My story: I had mild headaches with an occasional "big" one for several years but in July '06 they blew up. They became intense daily with very severe headaches every couple weeks. The daily ha intensified to the point that I couldn't handle any noise, movement made it worse and of course light sensitivity increased. After several doctors treated me with no results

Thalidomide May Relieve Rare Pain Disorder: Report
By Merritt McKinney
NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - In a chance discovery, doctors at the Mayo Clinic have found that thalidomide--a drug banned in the 1960s for causing severe birth defects--may be an effective treatment for a mysterious form of disabling nerve pain.
Based on a case of a woman with the condition whose symptoms disappeared soon after she started taking thalidomide to treat blo

A healthy gut is a multi-species society: it is the cooperative product of the human body with trillions of bacterial cells from a thousand or more species.
An unhealthy gut is, more often than not, the product of a breakdown in this collaboration. Often, it is triggered by displacement of cooperative, commensal species of bacteria by pathogenic bacteri

There are many different ‘liver enzymes’ that a doctor looks at when evaluating a liver function panel (AKA liver function tests). In fact, the liver function panel is not limited to enzymes, it also measures the levels of total protein, albumin, bilirubin, and other molecules that are all produced by the liver and dispersed throughout the body by the blood.
When examining the results of the liver function tests, the total protein and albumin levels w
My purpose in writing today is to address what I think is a good question: Is there a vast conspiracy of pharmaceutical companies who are bribing doctors to prescribe their drugs? If not, why do so many people believe there is?
Here's what I think. A couple of recent articles have shown that research funded by pharmaceutical companies is often flawed and biased towards favorable results (i.e., results showing the funded drugs work the way they're supposed to). Also
I had a brain MRI/MRA done and a C-spine MRI done separate times for the same reasons.

The Brain Mri says differently.. It says" There is a small, incidental Tornwaldt cyst involving the nasopharyngeal region. T

I went through 4 doctors before I finally (so I thought) came across one who knew, at least, somthing about b12. My first appointment with him was 2 weeks ago. He agreed my b12 at 293 was too low, especially with my symptoms. So he gave me a b12 shot told me to take b12 supplements and come back in 2 weeks for another shot. He also drew some blood and was testing for lupus and celiac. I went today, my blood work came back negative for both. He did not want to give me another shot (even th

I'm thinking my newest missed combo of heroin and roxies may have done the same thing. I missed about halfway through the shot, pulled out, and then finished elsewhere. Now the missed spot is still swollen and red. I can feel heat coming from it which generally means infection, the whole area is also very red and swollen.

My husband's in a very good clinic, with a team for everything.

The Pain team - they are actually called the Palliative care team. My husband asks, does this mean i'l be going into a hospice soon? I dont think so. But does the term palliative mean, they already know he'll be dying soon and its just a matter of managing the pain? He's only had

I had no reflex in either leg or ankle. Well, I wouldn't say 'no reflex', but he just kept saying, "Hmm, how odd, that's supposed to be your good leg and there's still no response." He just

My story is physically I have a very bad lower back. It hurts right in the middle on the very last "bone" or the end of the spine I think. The pain doesn't move, doesnt radiate or shoot or anything, its chronic on that bone. Nothing I do makes it better or worse, aside from standing which makes it worse while I stand.

Last Wednesday, I got a sore throat. No big deal, I thought, it's a cold. Over the next two days it got worse. It was very painful to swallow and the pain shot up to my ear. Advil, Tylenol, sore throat drops, etc. did nothing to help.
On Saturday morning, I went to one of those urgent care places, since my regular doctor isn't open on weekends. The doctor there told me that I probably had a bacterial thing, gave me a prescription for amoxicillin and sent me home. Later that afternoon,
Today, I went to my doctor for persistent lower back pain. I've been going to my doctor for about two years. I suffer from lower back pain [cause unknown]. As of today, I have not had any x-rays or tests and I have been prescribed 60 10mg Percocet tablets and 120 10mg Lortabs a month for about a year now. Today, I advised my doctor that my tolerance was at a very high level. I told him the Percocets and Lortabs no longer relieved my pain to my satisfaction. Today, in addition to the Percocets a
Within the last few months I've notice that my peripheral vision was not as good as I remembered it being. Cars would come out of nowhere, and I started bumping into things. Since I have scaring in the back of my left eye I just thought that was the problem, but since I needed new glasses I went to my eye doctor to see what was up. I got bounced around to two other doctors before finding out that there's nothing wrong with my eyes.
The last doctor sent me for an MRI. As I have big sh
A year ago this month, I began doing the couch to 5K program. I am in decent shape for a 39 year old, but I am not a runner.... I prefer to bike. Anyway, my left medial ankle began to swell after running. At first I thought it was due to running, but I had no pain. I went to my primary care physician and she said I had pitting edema. She immediately did blood work and sent me for a doppler scan of my leg. The scan did not reveal a DVT. Next she sent me to a nephrologist. He

There are nutrients that may be lacking in your diet. They may be depleted by another disease state (diabetes depletes magnesium), or they may be depleted by other drugs you may be taking. Many common drugs affect nutrient status of many things. I consult a reference for questions in this area, and urge people t
So I went to the doctor about some burning while urinating and discharge. Long story short I was treated for chlamydia and ghonorrea. The doctor did a culture too and said the results would not be conclusive because those are difficult to culture so he wanted to take the shotgun approach and treat both, so he did. Now my symptoms are gone and the test results came back negative for both of those things, but my girlfriend and I are concerned about her. She shows no symptoms and her doctor said s

Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone that supports the normal development of an egg in a woman's ovary (http://www.drugs.com/mtm/novarel-injectable.html), and stimulates the release of the egg during ovulation.

So I did mention to my doctor that my dentist said I had "crusty" nasal passages. He replied that "We only

I am 74 years old and recently have been diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. Rated a 7 out of 10 for aggressiveness. I was told the prostate had 5% infected with cancer and was caught early. I immediately began radiation treatments. After the treatm
It's been a while, but I kept finding the board down and thought it was history. I had quite a few posts on here, still not sure if all were recovered but found some of them. This was the only forum that really looked close to the subject, so if not I'm sorry and feel free to move it or whatever.
Anyway, recently they passed some kind of drug law (or "updated" it) so that now, we have to present ID at the pharmacy to pick up the big script. Not a big dea

I was strung out badly on IV heroin, along with my boyfriend. We had met in rehab, gotten clean together, were doing great--had a baby, working, life was swell. Then we relapsed. I had only ever done Rx pain meds (Tussionex) but the boyfriend was a long term IV heroin user. So we ended up quickly strung out on heroin. He got on the methadone clinic but I stuck it out with the H awhile longer before finally signing up myself. However, not knowing much about methadone
Prosecutor: Nurse Stole Drugs for Fix
By DAVID B. CARUSO

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A Pennsylvania nurse has been accused of slipping into two nursing homes where he used to work and stealing medicated pain-relief patches off the backs of elderly patients in what federal figures show is an increasingly common type of drug abuse.
``It's terrible to think that someone would stoop that low,'' said Gary Dobias, the district attorney in Carbon C
Memorial Day, 7 AM, I had been up all night, hard to breath, pain everywhere, lungs, kidneys, neck, arms, bladder, down below... Everywhere. No matter what I did it wasn't going away. Finally at 7 I gave in, let the squad come get me.
Thursday, about 10 AM I woke up. What day is it? Why are my hands tied? Why are my legs vibrating and tied? Why does my mouth hurt? Why can't I talk? Why can't I close my mouth?
Soon a nurse comes in, I'm on a ventilator, she wants to re
Last Tuesday, February 5th, I went to the hospital to get a lumbar puncture aka spinal tap. My neurologist needed to test my cerebrospinal fluid to rule out multiple sclerosis. I have no MS symptoms now, but I had an abnormal MRI of my brain, and an inconclusive result from a Visual Evoked Potential test, so this was the next step. He thinks the brain lesions shown on my MRI were just the result of 30 years of migraines, but we want to be sure.
The procedure was meant to be simple.

Passing 50 to 100 microamperes of simple d.c. electrical current through Aids infected blood disables the Aids virus and stops it reproducing it was discovered in 1992.
It also works on a broad range of other viruses/bacteria including Hep-A,B,C and also quite importantly for Malaria.See trial study below.

I got a call from my doctor - who was testing my liver function. I tested for slightly high cholesterol (1 point over) and high AST levels - 100 (normal is 34).
Now you are not my doctor, and I am not asking for medical advice - I have a doctor for that and I will be calling him tomorrow, but here's the thing I (naturally) looked up what could be causing this and everything from cirrhosis to hepatitis came up.
Now of course I am freaking out - although I keep telling mysel
My mother has lung cancer with liver matastasis (multiple tumors, the bigger one 3cm) and bone matastasis (forehead). She is 64 years old. Doctors told us that she has 8-12 months to live. But then, a friend of mine whose father died from a similar case one year ago, told me that the doctors don't want to upset us, and that her case means 1 or 2 more months of life, because of the liver metastasis.
Is that true? I was planning on stop working on her final stage of her disea
I thought I knew what to say after dealing with doctors so much with my late husband and my father.
My best friend has been struggling for the last couple of years with health issues. It started with lyme disease and she couldn't get anyone to try and treat it after the first round. Then about 6 months ago her arm swelled. One doctor told her to keep it still and now she finds out that was the worst thing she could do. Her arm causes her a great deal of pain and the doctors keep fo
I always thought tinitus was something that was constant. I get ringing in my ears, but its only sudden, usually lasts for about 10-20 seconds, and goes away after I swallow and move around a bit. I asked a doctor and she said "Don't worry about it", but it really has me concerned.
I think the tinitus is triggered by constant noises unexpectedly changing. For instance, I was just sitting in bed, and the fan right next to me was on. There was also a low hum in the backgrou
Hello all, I'm completely new to SCUBA and I'm really looking forward to getting started. Unfortunately up until I actually paid my dues for the confined water training, I completely forgot about an issue I have. About 3 years ago, my doctor found a very small inguinal hernia. I went to a surgeon and his thoughts were that it was not worth doing surgery at that point. His reasoning was that there was no noticeable bulge and I'm also in no pain. I guess it was even difficult to detect by feel
Well ladies, after months of careful deliberations and one too many "Did I take my pill??" moments I finally decided on the Mirena IUD. I had it inserted a couple of weeks ago and went in this morning for my follow-up appt.
This is a simple appointment where the doctor uses a speculum (with a light!) to check on the IUD strings and.. what? No strings?!
That's right. No strings. My doctor can't find the strings! My hoo-ha apparently ATE my IUD.
Mods, before you close the thread automatically, please bear in mind that I'm seeking INFORMATION, not ADVICE. Any answers I get in this thread will be used to help me better understand the situation, not to help me decide what to do. I am not the ill person, nor am I the person making the treatment decision.
So here's how it is:
My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in December of last year and had a double mastectomy in January of this one. For a few months now she
I know I am probably in the wrong site BUT I cannot get or find any info on the MS site. Hope someone here will know something because the problem here is horrific chronic intractable pain brought on apparently by neuropathy and L45 disc+ some arthritis in the spine. Even though I also am a chronic pain patient, my brother has been horribly suffering for 18 months. So far he has been on Neurontin, Lyrica, Baclafen, and Nortriptyline. The pain is worse at night and he gets no deep sleep. The Nort
Well, this was the last thing that I needed to hear today. I've already been severely stressed by research, teaching, studying for PhD comprehensive exams, and trying to come up with doable dissertation topics. Now I have one more thing to worry about. My dad got diagnosed with cancer today.
Mom called and I cried my eyes out for most of the conversation, so I am a bit sketchy on the details. But as far as I can recall, it's chronic lymphocistic (sp?) leukemia. The doctors found it afte
My girlfriend and I got into diving less than 1 year ago. We logged 20 dives southeast Asia and became PADI Advanced Open Water certified.
About 7 months ago I experienced some ongoing neck pain. I saw a specialist that indicated it was most likely due to poor posture and anxiety/stress. I'm an expat at a fast paced high demand job and in front of the computer most of the day, so this seemed like a likely reason.
In addition to some basic instructions for exercises and stretchi
You are not my doctor, you're probably not even A doctor, I'm going to see a doctor soon, just looking for feedback in the meantime, and if I take any advice here my uterus will probably fall out.
That said, I'm having a three-week long period and I'm starting to get... not concerned, but annoyed. I was amenorrheic for the past couple years. I do not know if it was post-birth control amenorrhea or whether I may have/had PCOS. I had two separate healthcare providers suggest the possibil
I have been using Rick Simpson Oil now for 3 weeks and I have seen some amazing results.http://phoenixtears.ca/ I have also been smoking Marijuana for a year now. Ive found that it breaks and forces that mucus up. Sure the coughing hurts and is certainly not fun but if you can tough out the painful part smoking gets easier over time and the pain relief is almost instant! Anyone else experiencing great results with Marijuana use? I was not ever officially diagnosed with CF we started to suspect I
Right up front I'll say that if you are eating lunch or if you found me attractive or sexy before now...you may just want to skip ahead, because today's subject is...poop.
I'll start with a short anecdote which I think is the root of all of my problems. When I was three years old, I was hospitalized overnight for constipation. I had gone 31 days without a bowel movement and was becoming very sick. Laxatives, enemas, prunes, nothing would help, because I would sit in the corner and ac
I am brand spankin new here on these forums and I have some questions about my hypospadias condition.
I was born with hypospadias, which basically means that my urethra (the hole I pee out of) is on the underside of the tip of my penis rather than right smack at the very tip of it. I had surgery when I was like 3 or 4 years old (maybe a little younger) to correct this.
I am a 25-year-old heterosexual male.
Basically, I am wondering what hyp
