Apr 12, 2017 · muscle joint pain in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I had my vit d3 tested three years ago by a new doctor. My test resultscame back as NONE! Although it is by far one of the most important vitamins to you being healthy, with out it you will be open to many serious illness. NONE of my many doctors had checked it for whatever reason.
I started back then and still am on 10,000 units a day of vit d3. That is 70,000 a week. Im not recomending this for you ar all,just that most people get the wrong test and it sounds up fine. The doctor rechecked me each three months for a year. I feel better,my nails are better. I have more energy, my hair is thicker.
I suggest that everyone ask their primary care doctor to check this along with magnium level once a year.
agnium is what I had extremly low leverls in when all of a sudden I was taken by ambulance to the E.R at hospital. They gave me magnuium as I went into Afib.
I now take what Cleveland heart suggests on a u tube video, that is 400 mg a day to stay healthy for your heart and many other illnesses we get for lack of it. The blood test to chack this is RBC
You have to be careful ,as you need to get GLY-Cinate (might be spelled wrong) The GLY is because this is buffered as magnuium is know to cause loose bowels, cramping and upset stomach. But it has helped me a lot.
Some of this does not relate to your information above but I find it is very common to be low in both. Good Luck

I have lived 16 years with never knowing how I will feel tomorrow. I learned to give up many of my activites that I loved as it only made flair ups worst.

Apr 11, 2017 · First start with a genectic specialist in Chronic Pain

I was guessed at by the genectic team at vanderbilt in nashville, then went to LSU, again thought it was conncetive tissue not sure which one. Then I heard about Dr.Claire Frncomano head of genetics foir USA. I got a free flight out there and after a 5 hour or so exam she agreed I had a form of connective tissue that was in my genetics. I have stayed in touch wiuth her every few months. UAB is doing a study as I do not have DNA for lopez diaz,marfans, VAscular 5,ehlers danlos.quite a few prople have had these problems in my family.
UAB ib birmingham has a great genetic department, they did one of the the largest DNA test ever on me,so far found I have one mutated gene. Sorry to say my family is not taking this seriously. As if they find it there is nothing can be done so why know?

Apr 10, 2017 · MCTD (Mixed Connective Tissue Disease) in Autoimmune Diseases

I have connective tissue disease which really means your aota,vascular,feet,legs,hands,arms,shoulders joints hurt terribly, maybe a different area each day.
The pain has gotten much worst. I di not know I had this unmaeed tissue disease until I had major aorta burst-dessection,disscetion also od caroids and stomacjh aort, then hour afrter that surgery my aorta heart valve had to be replacede.
I have since been in pain. However you look absolutly great on the outside so unless you tell people you have horrible pain and when u do they say” oh that cant be true YOU look GREAT!”
I am in a study at UAB ib birmingham as they are trying to name it as several in my family have signs or have it.
I ask has anyone had the lower back of thier skull hurt so bad -especailly when they lay down that they have to put a bag oof ice under it to try to help pain?
Lora tab does not help at all.
Does anyone out here have a connective tissue diseaser or symptoms of it?

Apr 4, 2017 · First start with a genectic specialist in Chronic Pain

For years i was told i had about 6 different problems for chronic pain. Finally i found that doctors are taught almost zero on this. Specialist look for what might relate to what they treat.it took me three aortic dissections at one time at 56 and a aorta heart valve replacement that could have possibly been prevented . Genectic doctor diagnoised it later.
