Feb 6, 2019 · CBD Oil in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I need more information too, but am not sure enough research has been done to answer my question. I take half a .5 mg dose of clonazepam (Klonipin) at bedtime. A doctor had me start taking it at a very stressful time in my life. It's a small dose, but I can't get off it now, nor can several of my friends who are nurses. The more I taper down, the worse the withdrawal problems get. I have heart palps each day, and have stopped trying to get off the clonazepam because tapering off makes my heart problems worse and I can't sleep. Not good for someone in my seventies. My doctor says it's such a small dose that I should just keep taking it. But clonazepam is sedating. And friends of mine with arthritis say that CBD oil, when rubbed on sore joints makes them sleep very soundly. So that must be sedating too. One pharmacist warned me not to use both, since it could cause serious problems.

I have a lot of arthritis. My neck and knees are the worst. I also have hip bursitis if I don't sleep on my back all the time. I'm allergic to almost all antibiotics, so my rheumatologist says I probably won't ever be able to have knee replacements. My heart palps and antibiotic allergies are the reasons. The day may come when I have bone on bone arthritis in my knees, and I'll need something like CBD oil.

Does anyone know where I can find research on whether people can safely use small amounts of CBD oil if taking Clonazepam?
CBD seems to be quite helpful. Thanks

Apr 6, 2017 · Acid Reflux and its Symptoms in Digestive Health

The vinegar thing sent me to the ER with the worst GERD of my life. All my doctor said was: “What were you thinking? Vinegar is pure acetic acid. Do I have to remind you how your esophagus looked when you had your endoscopy?” It was awful.

Mar 18, 2017 · Chronic subjective dizziness in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

I;m not certain what you mean by shadows, but I do have a real problem with heavy fatigue in the afternoons. I had to stop selling at my favorite farmer’s market because I was too tired to even go there to sell. The worst thing for me, though, is pulsatile tinnitus (hearing my pulse in my ear and feeling throbbing in my head, back of neck, chest, or stomach). That gets worse every time I wake up, eat, or move around/exercise. So I don’t go for walks like I used to, although it would be good for me otherwise. I can’t stand the loud pounding and throbbing sensation when I exercise harder. Sigh…

Mar 2, 2017 · Chronic subjective dizziness in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

I was diagnosed with the same type of virus in 1997, and I still get many of the same symptoms now and then. I don’t have trouble staying focus or nausea, but I do experience the other symptoms, especially pulsing tinnitus (can hear and feel my heart throbbing) and tiredness. I wonder whether it really is linked to hand ad food disease.

I understand, and I appreciate your comments. My dad used to pass out because of low blood pressure (and I sometimes feel lightheaded when my blood pressure drops some, so I’ve been told to get enough sodium daily. I try not to use more more than enough, but I’m not supposed to cut it way back either. 🙂

As for the oats, wheat and corn, that’s something to consider. Thanks.

The high pitched ringing started after a serious virus that attacked my nervous system and inner ears. I also experienced some hearing loss. I haven’t been able to pinpoint any certain foods that make the ringing worse. I’m not on a reduced sodium diet, because my blood pressure is usually rather low. I’ve habituated to the ringing and often am not aware of it at all, The pulsatile type, though is a tougher thing to live with. It’s bad enough to have heart palps each day, but having to hear the beats like a drumming in my head….that is difficult.

Feb 22, 2017 · Chronic subjective dizziness in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

I have both regular (high-pitched) tinnitus and pulsatile tinnitus. I feel and hear my heartbeat much of the time, but it’s louder when I wake up, after meals, and whenever I exercise or move around a lot. I can feel the throbbing, sometimes in my head, sometimes in my chest or the back of my neck. I have had a treadmill test, an MRI of my head with MRa dye) around my ears, and carotid artery doppler ultrasound. All were okay. But although I have a hard time with MRIs, I wish doctors would also do an MRI/MRA of my upper neck, which has never been checked. My worry is something like an aneurysm, although it may not be anything like that. I just wish , that since pulsatile tinnitus is usually a vascular problem, They’d also check my upper neck at the base of my skull. They don’t feel it’s necessary. Does anyone here have anything like this? I’m not worried about the ringing tinnitus, but the heart-pounding kind every day is a little scary, even though I’ve had it for 6 years and nothing bad has happened. Your thoughs or comments?
