Re: Very Tired

Thanks Ann. There are thousands of widows who need the law changed. She recently talked to a lady in her 80's, who was happy about what Katie is doing.

Re: Very Tired

Thank you Ann, a very good article. It is very hard and lonely. Regarding my son in law's death my Daughter, her family, friends and I have been contacting all the Senators and Representatives. She has been spending many weeks on this, I hope this has helped her. There was a law that was passed arou...

Re: Weight Loss

Saw Doctor today. She told me that some of the swelling probably happens when I go to the lower altitudes. A few months ago I stopped a diuretic that had swelling in side effects. I didn't think it helped much, plus swelling seemed to start after starting that pill. She changed my blood pressure pil...

Re: Weight Loss

Swelling has been happening for a couple of years. Doctors don't tell me why, so I figure they don't know. Cardiologist says my heart is fine. Actually I think it's my kidneys.

Re: Weight Loss

Yes Betty, I can tell there's a lot of fluid. Now that I'm home, I will be eating better. I was also in the car a lot which didn't help. I see my Doctor Tuesday.

Re: Weight Loss

I finally got on the scale today. I've been away for two weeks and couldn't weigh. I've put on 30 pounds. I stayed with the first 10 for almost a year. The next 10 happened in the last few months. The last 10 happened in the last month. My legs are so swollen.

Re: Very Tired

I guess I get surprised every time my sleep gets worse. I've been getting 4 to 5 hours with taking extra meds, but I feel like $#%@. It seems like all I do is complain. I need 8 to 10 to feel good. So this week I won't be taking the extra meds, which will mean very little sleep. Of course I could ge...

Re: Very Tired

Thanks for reminding me to check. I usually do with new prescriptions.
We usually go to either Safeway or Walmart. The last time I filled it, it was Walmart. At that time my insurance required it be filled there. I just checked and Safeway is cheaper now. If I get it filled again, I will switch.

Re: Very Tired

I can't afford an expensive one. The generic mirapex is what I have and it costs quite a bit. I've been only taking it once a week. I'm sure with that plus gabapentin is the cause of the weight gain. In two weeks my weight jumped up. It seemed like all of a sudden it happened. My eating hadn't chang...

Re: scary night time experience

This happened to me after my knee replacements. I believe my legs were agitated by the surgeries plus all the meds they put me on at the time. Legs were jumping off the bed a foot or so. Then when I got up to bathroom, I was disoriented from the meds. I got lost in my own bedroom. So for me the ment...

Re: Very Tired

Probably. I've taken antidepressants before. Last one put weight on me.

Re: Very Tired

To me, this is one of the worst parts of any chronic condition...that every time it is better for awhile, the next down period almost seems worse, if possible. Learning to ride with the ups and downs is so hard. Especially when every time it is better you are so sure it is going to be for a long ti...
