2 days ago · Chest pain in Heart & Blood Health

Hi @anican13 and welcome to Connect. Your chest pains must be frightening.

I wanted to introduce you to @bbough who has been experiencing similar pain recently. I also wanted to introduce you to @llwortman who has experienced chest pain in the past. They both may be able to relate with you and help support you as you search for answers.

Back to you @anican13, have you spoken to your doctor about this? Is there anything in your life that is causing unnecessary stress?

2 days ago · when do i make an appointment at mayo? in Aortic Aneurysms

Hi @anniejam you bring up an interesting question.

I wanted to tag, @hopeful33250, @crhp194 who was a Mayo patient, as well as fellow Connect members @morninglory @thegoodwife @thankful @degarden_girl and @ch246cf10 as they may have opinions worth sharing on this topic.

@anniejam, how are you feeling? Where you referred to Mayo? What has your doctor said about timing of appointments?

2 days ago · Memory problems in Brain & Nervous System

Hi @justint95 as you said yourself, these memory problems must be so frustrating especially while you try to accomplish school work.

Have you been suffering any additional symptoms with the memory problems? For example are you forgetful when you go to do something? Or have you had trouble focusing?

You mentioned that you went and saw a neurologist, did they offer any guidance as ways to help your memory, even though they couldn't point out what was wrong?

Hi @kaegee and welcome to Connect. That must be so demoralizing for your husband to have everything taste awful after his liver transplant.

I wanted to introduce you to fellow liver transplant recipients, @rosemarya @parmcat and @gaylea1, who just recently underwent transplant, all have received liver transplants and may be able to help answer questions about your husbands symptoms, while relating to some of the things he is going through and provide support for him.

Back to your husband @kaegee, to help the group, what medications is he on right now? Also, have you spoken to his doctor about this? What did they say?

3 days ago · Meniere's Disease in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

Hi @ginomayo and welcome to Connect. You may have noticed I moved your post to this existing thread on Meniere's Disease so that you can hopefully learn from others who have this disease.

I wanted to thank @trishanna for posting a response and @morningglory may have some thoughts on this as well, or advice to offer.

Back to you @ginomayo I also wanted to ask if you have spoken to your doctor about your continued loss of balance?

3 days ago · Pneumatosis Cystoides Intestinalis in Digestive Health

Hi @pamm and welcome to Connect. You may have noticed I changed the title of this thread to "Pneumatosis Cystoides Intestinalis" in order to make it easier for others searching for this condition to join in on the conversation.

According to an article in the World Journal of Gastroenterology, Pneumatosis Cystoides Intestinalis is defined as "a rare disease characterized by the presence of gaseous cysts containing nitrogen, hydrogen and carbon dioxide[1] in the intestinal wall that may be iatrogenic[2-5] or associated with a wide variety of conditions" – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3235639/

To my understanding of that definition it means that gaseous cysts are found in intestinal wall. As for causes, the exact cause isn't known, but the articles references that "it may appear in association with ileal surgery, colonoscopies, chronic pulmonary disease, connective tissue disorders and ingestion of sorbitol or lactulose."

I hope this information and article is helpful. Is this a condition that you or someone you know has been recently diagnosed with?

3 days ago · Constant Eye Pain in Chronic Pain

Hi @olivia52 you may have noticed I changed the name of this discussion to "Constant Eye Pain" in order for other Connect members to easily find your post.

It must be disheartening to have a successful treatment suddenly become unsuccessful.

I wanted to tag fellow Connect members @anniemaggie @rosemarya and @jenniferhunter as they may be able to help offer ideas or support as you look for relief to your constant eye pain.

Back to you @olivia52 have doctors been able to provide a diagnosis for your eye pain?

3 days ago · Cerebellar Stroke - experience/treatment/recovery in Stroke & Cerebrovascular Diseases

Hi @kweber and welcome to Connect. Those migraines sound awful.

I wanted to tag fellow members @rachelanne @hammondm99 and @livetheday as they have all suffered strokes and may be able to sympathize with your post-stroke migraines.

Back to you @kweber, how do these migraines affect you during the day? Are you able to do any of your normal activities?
