I too follow wheat belly diet… Really helps!

4 days ago · I'm having problems managing Type 2 Diabetes with medication in Diabetes/Endocrine System

I am so sorry for your loss. Anxiety and stress certainly don't help our gastro. system. I took metformin for 8 years and had horrible gastro. symptoms. My dr. diagnosed me with IBS and it was really bad. After diet change, got off of metformin and all my symptoms went away. It was wonderful. Stayed off for 2 years, but had a bad virus which attacked my organs. Blood sugar and pressure went sky high. They put me back on metformin and my stomach bloated up like I was ready to deliver a baby. Nauseated, diarrhea and same symptoms I had before. Got off of it… Tried trulicity and was horribly sick for a week until it wore off. It gave me same symptoms as metformin. Waiting for my dr. appointment to come up….

Feels like a washboard…

Sat, Jun 13 12:15pm · Extreme fatigue and pain in Spine Health

Sometimes my skin hurts, especially on my upper arms and my muscles are extra sensitive. I have arthritis as well, so it's always dealing with pain, although I very rarely take anything for the pain…. Do any of the fibro meds work on these types of pain?

I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue and with fibromyalgia. I also have those bumps you describe on both of my thighs. They feel like pressure points when you palpate them. I'm following along to see what you find out….

Aug 19, 2019 · Morton's Neuroma in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I had the neuroma on the left removed. He did the surgery from the top. It returned before I finished physical therapy. Another doctor removed it again from the bottom this time. I found the surgery to be very painful. When it did heal, I now have a huge scar tissue which is almost as painful as the neuroma. I still have the neuroma on my right foot, which has never been removed. I don't recommend the surgery except as a very last resort. I think the least invasive answer is to make sure you have good supportive shoes. My doctor gave me a list of shoes. One of them was the hoka one one tennis shoes. I rarely wear anything else. They are expensive and worth every penny. Wish I had found them first. Might not have gotten the neuromas. Also, he recommended never going bare footed. Good luck!

Jul 5, 2019 · Long term effects AFTER withdrawing from Effexor in Depression & Anxiety

I took 8.5 months to wean off and was off for 4.5 months before I went back on. Quality of life got worse and worse. It did increase my blood pressure and I suffered a lot of pain after I weaned off. I read that it did suppress pain, but I do have fibromyalgia. The anxiety was horrible and the depression kept increasing. My blood pressure also seems to be going down now that I am taking it again. I'm so disappointed that I wasn't able to stay off of it, but I feel 75% better after just 2 days… I'm thankful for answered prayers because I felt like I was losing it!
