Randy It makes me sick to think you are going through this misery..and for what?! Because a doctor, in his"wisdom", decides you shouldn't or don't really need to take Vicodin again? Geeze! I totally---so totally--understand your frustration. As Ruby said, it's so easy to say "get a new doctor--try a...

Lyndarae,

Good Gosh Gertie! I don't know HOW you do what you do, girlfriend. Whew! You make me tired just reading your posts!

I can vouch for the hot water and Downey trick. Works like a charm.

Sweetie, take care of yourself! And, try to keep warm.

Hugs

Hi, Welcome to the forum.... I wonder....has anyone every mentioned neuropathy to you? The symptoms of peripheral neuropathy are very similar to those you have described. I am not a doctor, but I had PN before extensive back surgery (which relieved all of my symptoms). Do you feel a need to move you...

I'm allergic to the dye they use in all the MRI's, CT scans, etc. They have to add something so I don't break out in hives. I think it's called IVP dye. I did break out one time and looked like a huge strawberry. They gave me Benadryl (this was probably 20 years ago, or longer). Now, of course, the ...

Wow, dogeyed, you explained RLS perfectly! Personally, I know more women who have RLS than men. This could be because more women actually do have RLS, or because women talk about it more than men. Men are more private, I think. dogeyed, I also appreciate what you said about this Discussion Board. It...

Aww, Nadia.... I'm so sorry you are going through so much--pain, worry, and problems with your parents. I wish you had the support from them that you want and need. But, I am so glad you found Troy and his girls! Lynne had some good ideas regarding the parent situation. It does seem like I remember ...

Zach For me, tooth pain (whether from a cavity, abscess of and extraction, or whatever) and ear pain are two of the worst kinds of pain. Besides that, no one should compare your pain to their's--neither should you. Your pain is YOUR pain and, as Ann said, "If someone says something hurts, damnit, it...

Aww, Gill, bless your heart! You are having such a bad, bad time. I can say, without a doubt, Gil, that many of us have had nights like you. I have looked at my own bed more as a battleground than a place for sleep and rest. I hated nighttime because I knew that any hope for rest was futile. Althoug...

Jan, there are no words that could thank you the way I need to. The mess I was in when I finally dial the phone. You calm steady voice and your fingers flying through the internet to find the answers. Your support through a phone line, keeping me from freaking out, well worse than I was. What a bur...
