this is regarding hip replacement, I have been seeing many advertisements on stem cell surgery, I diagnosed with arthritis.

this is regarding hip replacement, I have been seeing many advertisements on stem cell surgery, I diagnosed with arthritis.

I was wondering if anyone has had this procedure? I am unable to have hip replacement due to medical conditions. My pain started like my hip was going out of place like a cramped muscle, really no pain to the bone at all. I thought it was a nerve problem, it would come and go. Then I noticed when my bladder got filled I was having pain in the groin, but after relieving myself it went away. Now… read more

How to support your partners while they support you?

How to support your partners while they support you?

I can’t get out with my fiancé and so many things or enjoy moments as much as we used to because of the pain and I can tell it’s taking a toll on him. He just wants to see me happy and admitted how much it hurts him when he sees me hurting. He’s been so wonderful to me in this, but I know everyone has a breaking point of how much they can handle and I want to take some of the burden off of him. He always carries me when I can’t carry myself and I can tell he’s… read more

How do you exercise and stay in shape with chronic illness?

How do you exercise and stay in shape with chronic illness?

I really want and need to get in shape but I am so scared I will just end up hurting worse than I started or vomiting all over the gym. I’m just tired of my only exercise being a walk to the mailbox. Even then I’m tired but I want more. Does regular exercise help with pain management, even if it makes you tired?

Dental Impants

Dental Impants

Thanks to a friend, I'm considering dental impants. Due to genetics (thanks Dad-lol), I don't have the best teeth, especially in the back, where several have been pulled. Plus, for some of us, fibro, etc doesn't help our oral health either. I was wondering if anyone has had dental implants (not dentures or anything else) & if so, what was your experience. I've heard many success stories from healthy people & have heard a not so successful story from (I believe) an otherwise healthy… read more

Acidity in the Body

Acidity in the Body

I just heard on a documentary that I'm watching again (HEAL) that acidity in the body (through the foods we eat, etc.) contributes to pain/inflammation. I was wondering if anyone has tried an alkaline diet or simply reducing acidic foods & if so, what was your experience? Thanks!

Does anyone else feel hungover after going anywhere?

Does anyone else feel hungover after going anywhere?

I don’t drink. I don’t use drugs. Every time I go out and do anything beyond maybe like, drive to the grocery store to pick up a few things, I come home feeling hungover. Had an amazing time on the town last night eating dinner with my loved ones and walking in the park, came home at like 9:30, went to bed at 10 and today I feel like
I’ve been run over by a dump truck.

Why would someone experience cramps every time they poop?

Why would someone experience cramps every time they poop?

I’ve searched the internet for this to no avail. It’s not related to menstrual cramps or a UTI. It’s also not diarrhea. Every time I have to have a bowel movement get terrible cramps that feel like the most severe menstrual cramps, even when not on period or ovulating. It’s daily and happens without fail within at least 10 minutes of waking, if the pain hasn’t already woke me up. I try to go to the bathroom and the cramps don’t always lead to a BM either.… read more
