Aug 15, 2018 · Dealing with "muscular skeletal breakdown", colitis, depression, etc in Chronic Pain

Hi, so sorry your son is suffering. I found an EXCELLENT natural remedy for IBS. Peppermint Oil Capsules. Check online for lowest price. I suffered for years with painful IBS. Best remedy for the chronic belly pain no doctor could fix. I find peppermint oil capsules work best for constipation dominant IBS. I have the mixed form. Long bouts of constipation alternating sometimes with long episodes of diaharrea. I only take the capsules during the constipation phase. I treat the diaharrea with dietary remedies. Best wishes

Aug 15, 2018 · fibromyalgia newbie in Chronic Pain

I was just diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I'm very miserable with joint pain and kidney/bladder pain. I live in Nashville TN and the heat, humidity and poor Air Quality make me very short of breath when outside. I'm on 300 Neurontin 3 times a day being increased as tolerated to 600 3/day. Side effects are rough. Can't take steroids. About 45-50 pounds underweight. I would love responses

@windwalker Thanks! Now I know to avoid this for my Stepdad. I can't thank you enough for recommending Mayo Connect. It's a great help!

My Dad has PF. He's been on 60, 40,20 of prednisone since March 2018. 2-3 liters oxygen. Had pneumonia requiring 3 rounds of antibiotics past three weeks. He has Lupus and has already had 2 infusions of Rituxin. Can you share your PF details with me?

I am going back on Humira, probably. Neurontin+Catapres helps me. I used to take Percocet but opioids are impossible now, due to the "war". Ice, heat, Voltaren gel and an antidepressant Trintellix. I can't take steroids and that's really a huge, major problem.

Aug 3, 2018 · Autoimmune diagnosing in Autoimmune Diseases

It was very frustrating for me. I was told I had Rheumatoid but now my doc says Psoriatic Arth. I just had a flare and I can't tolerate steroids. Keep looking for a kind Doctor. The pattern of your pain and exactly what hurts is an important path to diagnosis. Best wishes

Aug 3, 2018 · Abdominal pain, loss of appetite, weight loss, repeated infections in Autoimmune Diseases

Hi, I'm a new member. I am very thin now from a drastic weight loss and chronic hemhorragic cystitis (fancy name for peeing a lot of blood) I had frustrating and painful gastrointestinal issues for a decade. The link between autoimmune disorders and infections is something I'm going to look into and ask my docs about. So sorry you're so sick. I am too and I hate it.
