recently diagnosed with piniculitis and from what i'm reading i'm scared now. i was told that it is rare, told a couple of different things about it but not enough. So how rare is it and is it life threatening , what complications come from it etc etc etc. I was told it was like having cellulitus in the stomach, lose weight , stop stressing and forget about it. Really! Well after 4 days of search and destroy antibiotics every 3 hrs this is all I get. Oh a month of steroids. I am not one for putting these meds in my body but here I am at 58 trying to get myself right for the next journey in life only to run into a brick wall again where the health is concerned. well I did everything I was told and here it is again so yeah now i'm a nervous wreck. I've never been one to search the internet about conditions but here I am. What can you tell me about this rare challenge. Thank you. looking forward for more knowledge.
I have been diagnosed with Pelvic Floor Dysfunction and have what is called "outlet constipation". The condition is getting worse is there anything I can do to be able to move my bowels. The muscles will not relax.
I've been dealing with upper abdominal pain that radiates from my sternum to the right side and between my shoulder blades and upper right shoulder. The pain seems to subside in the morning but gets progressively worse throughout the day. It's accompanied by nausea and loss of appetite. I have had several ct scans HIDA scans and ultrasounds and X-rays. The Drs (I'm on my fourth) say they have no idea what it is. I have been to the ER several times with no results. This has been going on for almost two years now and is getting worse by the day. I sometimes freak out because I think it's something serious but have faith that if it were the labs and scans would have identified it. It also causes bouts of daily heart burn. I have tried all the usual drugs. I am at my wits end and quite frankly can't take it anymore. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

My husband inherited hemochromatosis , diagnosis about a yr. ago. That required taking a pint of blood
every week. He is down to about 4 or 5 months. He developed pains in his stomach and an achy body, lost
about 25 pounds. He looks 10 yrs older (he was a young 74 yr old). He has been diagnosed with chirrosis.
He has had his stomached drained 4 times, about every 3 weeks. He acts confused. It is affecting his brain.
In the past few days he has started to eat, but his mental condition is scaring me. any thoughts????
