I really like my Propet Diabetic shoes, my feet feel the best they have in years.

I OWE I OWE SO ITS OF TO WORK I GO. Seriously I take care of our home and 20 acres, raise a few sheep. Also, do some custom mowing and do some tractor repair. I keep wondering how I managed all this while driving a truck 150,000 miles per year. I never learned how to be a loafer. I will read your links, I have been looking at this disease from many angles and don't intend to go down easy. My cortisol May 4 was 2.0 at 08:00.

another problem I had was cold feet. I bought a heated mattress pad from Sunbeam that has three zones shoulders, midsection, and feet. Each can be controlled separately for ten settings with the wireless remote control which even turns it off after ten hours. King and Queen sizes have two remotes for two persons. Here it is Spring and I am still using the foot section on the lowest setting and sleeping well.

Roy, I don't know why the tremor is gone but I am grateful if it is only for a little while. That aggravating tremor is really about the only symptom I have. When I asked the Neurologist do I have Parkinson's or not he replied you have a Parkinson tremor but not full-blown Parkinsons. I do have an adrenal tumor and have an appointment to get it checked for pheochromocytoma. I have a lot of symptoms that match that.

I am truly amazed. Yesterday I read Roy's post about thiamine, looked and found a bottle of 250mg tablets that my late wife had. I took 1 with each of my carb/levo 25-100 x3 . This morning I got up with no tremor now 2 hours later I am getting a small twitch in my left hand. I am encouraged.

I had a lot of pain and numbness in my feet. Went to a podiatrist who said I have Mortons neuroma, he put metatarsal pads in my shoes. He said if I wanted he could surgically remove the neuromas. The pads have helped a lot and the claw toes on my left foot have straightened a lot.

Hi Lisa, I am trying to decide if I should pursue the adrenal nodule as the cause of my tremor and a few other things that better match adrenal problems such as right now I am hyper. Sleep is out of the question, also have blood pressure spikes and afib. I found out today that the heart clinic has known I have the nodule since 2002 and never told me. Blood pressure and afib are some of the things that can be caused by adrenal. Do you think at 79 years it is worth pursuing or should I just accept my fate as folks here seem to think?? Would Mayos even accept me as a patient?
