Jun 14, 2018 · Autoimmune Diseases and Fatigue in Autoimmune Diseases

colleen: I am 75. I had daytime fatigue. I could sleep soundly for several hrs at 9am after a good nights' sleep. With several other complaints I was referred to a gastro dr. I was diagnosed with anemia and UC, apparently internal bleeding of which I had no outward symptoms. It has taken almost 2 yrs to regain a full day of life. the anemia is corrected but UC is auto immune which is unusual at my age. I thought my symptoms were due to old age. daa1942

May 16, 2018 · Diverticulitis in Digestive Health

I had a good portion of the left side of my large intestine removed in 1972. I was young then. now, 40+ years later, I have UC on the right side and diverticulosis on the left side. I see a specialist. my personal suggestion is to take action to avoid constipation either OTC or RX. daa1942

Apr 16, 2018 · shoulder tendenitis/rotator cuff pain in Chronic Pain

my shoulder pain started doing yard work almost 2 years ago. I have had a full session of pt, 2 cortisone shots, and advice from 2 drs. I refused mri and surgery. I tried limited use of my r.arm for 1 mo. without a shoulder brace (I am r. handed and my husband does the groceries). now I use ice packs (mine is long and narrow for use on neck) draped over my shoulder. I have returned to light gardening and limit time at sewing machine. I use aspercreme with lidocaine massaged well into shoulder and upper arm, Tylenol, and a script for tramadol. I researched a surgical cure which involved the same after care only more of it. have patience. daa1942
