I wasn't going to answer on this post as it is 4 years old, but LORA.......I used to cry in the shower when my son's made fun of me. That I was ridiculed and picked on by all three.
I ended up taking my husband to the neurologist with me and he heard her statements and watched me get my trigger point injections.....a breakthough! Each site was injected with 1cc of lidocaine, but the point of it all is the metal needle in the site to make the muscle jump and relax. priceless effect for me.
I was getting 60 injections for a while, now maybe 20-30. BUT for DH to SEE the sites and how many parts of me are in trouble. Seeing was believing.
Hearing was believing. He became my champion in the house. The kids din't pick on me anymore and it became real to his family....I was just left to try and get to a better place.
Just having that off of me helped me in the pain dept.
This is so tough as it is invisable, it is limiting in what you can do today and different tomorrow. So confusing to the outsider it is.
It still baffles me at times! Dang, I did that yesterday...but I can feel I can't do it today? What the heck?
I am sorry you are in the begining area of most pain, not alot of knowledge of this or of yourself. It is a large classroom to sit alone in. The most important people in your life are not listening. Actually, Give Em a break. PUT IT HERE....
We hear you all the time and feel your pain (literally).
Good luck and stay here alot. I posted daily and at times 3-4 times. Questions, feelings etc. Someone will help. I am around on the weekends.
Glad you found somethng that worked for you. I don't think you are saying here that you too have sleep apnea, as that is CPAP mask for relief and has helped so many to sleep to restoration. Oxygenating in the night is imperative. A refreshed person wakes in the morning.
Isn't this a challenge in life to look at the things that are disturbing the norm in life and find a tool to fix it and make it better. I found my memory foam topper was the answer to so much. It still gets me how long I suffered and no one helped with ideas.........just this board.
God bless us for the caring and support we offer eachother.

I had problems for over 20 years, from when I married my Italian husband and the diet his family eats is gluten laden.
I would go home and be so sick. I didn't want his Mom to think I was strange so I continued to eat and be sick, but also the foods were so delicious! Ha! Then I was sick all the time as my body was just so out of wack.
Now down the line all these years and many fungal rectal rashes and vaginal overgrowths, diarrhea, fluid balance isssues, loss of elements from the bowel. I too was like you but I am non-celiac gluten intolerance. A barometer of sorts for those in the office with the same issues. In 20 minutes when gastric emptying occurs for me I will feel it is in the small bowel. Amazing.
You should be lactose intolerant as well as the next absorptive ring in the colon villi is milk. This will heal and get better in time. I am shocked you saw a GYN for this diagnoses. Glad you found her. I saw a naturopath. The diarrhea is the root of the fungal overgrowth in other areas.....what a mess at times.
I was always using something to get it better. Lived on probiotics and creams. Never thinking of the cause.....for the result...
I am so glad you are better. I miss none of it. The cramps, bathroom and even the rashes are of the past. Now if I get contaminated I do get a flare of excema on my face...it is always something. It is hard to be perfect. If you are Celiac you must be perfect as you carry the risk of cancer in the bowel.
I hope you have found a good GI doc and get your scopes regularly.
I strongly believe it was a piece of my puzzle to get me here to FM/CMP. Hope you are feeling better.
Thank you for the input. I too believe you are what you eat and it was an all green diet that changed me, as it is full of anti-oxidants. There is so much about the complex body we don't understand yet. Getting close though.
The genome project was BIG for everyone.
Well here is hoping this advice changes someone here for the better. Thanks again for the input.
I was just thinking after I posted, are you aware the bacteria in your bowels so much is the cause of gas......
When foods are not digested correctly and the residual is stuck in the colon and not passed through the walls and absorbed...the bacteria go to town with the new "buffet" given them. The process of them breaking down the food...results in a gas generation. Easily put...the bacteria "fart" and then YOU FART! Your gut bloats and your are uneasy and things move along a bit faster............
Methane is the byproduct of bacterial digestion, tainted with odors from the food of choice.....
(what a subject...) Dr OZ loves to talk of poop....and I had a physiatrist who said...we have to figure what is going wrong between your mouth and your ass. Malabsorption is the route of disease in lack of nutrients for the body.
OK...box removed from under my feet........Hugs, Nancy BView Thread
Gee, I wonder if I would benefit from a go through with them? There is one in Jacksonville, Florida.
I pretty much have my tool box down and agree with my position here, but I would always love to learn more.............
Physical therapy never did anything for me......and I would want them to see me before shots when I have my tight bands and trigger points.....as maybe a different label can be on my head. BUT....I am so functional in the mess we are in.
Thanks for the post and I will copy and paste the info.
Yes savella has a side effect of hot flashes and sweating as does Tramadol......a catch 22 here. Please don't play with your hormones, as I also hope the doctor won't adjust your homones as it is not that as a cause.
I am on such a small dose and have all this. I just layer and drink alot of cold water when the flushes come. I tell everyone it is menopause as to not look funny.....
I am sorry you have no energy. As this med is a primary for increasing norepinephrine the cousin of adrelaline...it is surprising to me. I can only take 12.5mg a day....if more my heart rate and b/p are too high, I can't sleep etc......It gives me energy as well..
See how we are all different? Amazing...
The physicians should be more educated in this med and be aware of the side effects possible. Good luck, I hope things get better for you. NAncy BView Thread
