Do you have sweating issues regardless of the temp in your environment

Do you have sweating issues regardless of the temp in your environment

Regardless of how cool/cold it is around me I will sweat a ridiculously large amount and my ears get red and actually feel hot. It's like my internal thermostat is out of wack, I can just be sitting for this to start so I was wondering if any one else has dealt with this and if so how do you deal with it

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

I am curious on the side affects of Gabapentin please? I have noticed some teeth and gum issues lately.

I am curious on the side affects of Gabapentin please? I have noticed some teeth and gum issues lately.

I do not know if the medication is even still working for my pain. I just am wondering if there are other meds for my pain due to some possible new side effects. Or is it affects?

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 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?

Do you feel like you are just in the way?

Do you feel like you are just in the way?

Does anyone feel like all you do is get in the way and slow everyone else down? As though everyone wants to get somewhere yesterday and you can't do so until tomorrow and so they are all ready and waiting at the door and you sometimes just end up passing on the trip, or activity, because you are still trying to get on your shoes and coat, so to speak.

Has anyone had nerves in the back severed or burned? My Dr, wants me to. DOES IT WORK?

Has anyone had nerves in the back severed or burned? My Dr, wants me to. DOES IT WORK?

I have AR and nerves in spine, one pinched in upper back makes hands numb which I also have AR in them. I also have bone spurs. My Dr, refuses to give pain meds. Shots in back did nothing. If you had this done please tell me if I should or not have it done. I have used every rub out. Does not help. Even hemp oil. Drugs have destroyed help for those who need them. Dr, said not allowed to. Does anyone know of anything that helps?… read more

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
