I have a question about Hives. I reacently have been getting hives and it seems to be in only one arm from the elbow to the fingers. I can't figure that part out,why it's only in one arm and not on the rest of me.If it was an allergic reaction to a medication or something, wouldn't the hives be all over me?View Thread
Oh yeah I fore got to tell ya what they gave me for the cramping and joint pain , its called Cyclobenzaprine HCL 10 MG. I looked it up and I found that its used for fibromyalgia Patients and is used for the muscle cramping but it's not doing too well. I at least get some sleep now.View Thread
I have some questions about this proceedure , One , I am on blood thinners and want to know can I even have one now that I am on blood thinners, I.E. ( Warrfran & Lovenox ) Two, Can My Primary Doc. order the LP, or dose it have to be ordered by a Neuro ? Three, My primary took me off my High blood pressure med to see if my joint pain and numbness, burnning and tingleing and pins and needels sensations and muscle cramping are being caused by it. Is that normal , because it never caused this before? I mean I never had troubles while takeing it before...View Thread
The Pain has gotten much worse last night and today. It feels as though someone is hitting my legs just above the knee joint with a ball peen hammer. Very difficult to stand or walk. I called my primary care doc this morning about it and her nurse answered and told me she was going to be out for the rest of the week and she asked another doc on staff about my sitation and he has prescribed me some muscle relaxers but nothing for the pain because of my alergic reactions to most pain meds.Man I sure hope they work. I don't know what it is that he prescribed but will let you know when I get them...Oh yah, they are mailing me the meds , So I wont get them till tomarrow. Why they are doing that I'll never know...I could sure use them right now.....
Ok, check this out. I'm not one to go to the doc. for every little pain, but reacently I have been haveing really bad sharp stabbing pains in my shoulders and in my elbows . and it would only happen in the middle of the night. To get woken up out of a dead sleep with that kind of pain is very odd...So I went to my Primary doc who ordered X-rays of my shoulders.
She said she saw some miss alignment problems in my right shoulder rottater cuff. And ordered me to have physical theropy. I asked her then why do I have pain in both shoulders and only at night and no other time .I also told her that I have full range of motion and have no pain in doing full range of motion. or when lifting and carrieing things, and if what she found would also explain the pain in the elbows as well. I never got a straight answer from her about the elbow pain but was told to just go ahead and try the theropy.
The Physical theropist checked me out and was asking me alot of questions about my balance problems and my shakeing and slured speach. She conducted a resistance thing for my arms and shoulders and kept asking if I feel pain for each one,and there wasent. she then said all she could find is that I have a little reduced strength in my right arm and showed me an excersise to help with that.After that she told me that there would be no need to see her any further and that she is going to referr and recomend that I see a neurologist Immeadeatly to my primary doc.
She then asked me if my primary had done any of these resistance checkes on me and asked me how did she determine that I needed theropy. I told her that my primary didnt do any of the stuff she did and that she only based it on the X-rays she had ordered. and told me that I must be haveing pain all the time because of what she saw on my X-rays...I told her I don't have pain all the time and it only happens at night when I'm asleep. The physical theropist then said If your doc would have just taken the extra ten minutes to do the resistance chscks on me she would have seen that it is not a rotator cuff problem but a Neurological problem.
The physical theropist then asked me if anything had been mentioned to me about the possability of haveing M.S. I told her, no... nothing has ever been said that I have it, but I have been asked by others, Doctors and Nurses.. as to What stage of M.S. I was in...All I could tell them is ...I have never been diagnssed with anything yet and I asked them why thay asked if I had it...they always tell me that it sure looks like I do and display all the symptoms for it as well...The physical theropist then asked if they have done any testing for it and all I could tell her is that my Nuroligist never did and refused to because she felt that it wasen't a neurological problem.
Whats even worse now is I'm have leg pain, Muscles Knotting and cramping up and calfs too. numbness, burnning, pins and needels that feels like it's crawling up and down my leg, that is very difficult to deal with as well But so far I can tollerate it during the day but what really sucks is when it happens at night It keeps me from sleeping and the Ibruprofen and tylenal just dont seem to stop the pain anymore.I don't know if I should go to my primary doc for that for fear that she will just X-ray my legs and tell me that I need physical theropy again.
Really,Never heard of ppl haveing it happen while driveing eagh...What about those of us who have it 24/7 and it never stops....From the time you get up, till the time you sleep...Constant dizzyness and off balance...Reaction time is way slower and coordination way off.... Hummm....Never any off time for it either...Some of us that are like that have no choice but to drive,No other choice and ya know what , it scares the crap out me every time Just hopeing and praying that I don't hit anyone....View Thread
Yes, I believe not only are GP's tuaght that but also most doctors as well. I have a good friend that is a farmasist and she says you woulnd't believe all the people that get anti-depressants prescribed to them. she says it's like every one of them get perscribed it even though they most likely don't need it. It's been my experience as well when the Doc's can't figure it out the first thing that comes from thier mouth is your depressed or the depression you are haveing must be causing all this to happen.I had one say that you need these because your quality of life will get better, How would that work? I would still have the problems but feel better haveing them now that I'm medicated ...Ok , but when are ya going to address the real problems at hand doc?View Thread
I have read about some ppl haveing joint pain and most seem to have it in thier hands and not just in the joints...If this is a symptom of MS is this a typical problem stemming from the back lesions or just spinal problems its self?View Thread
