Wed, Jan 29 11:26am · Lymphedema/Cellulitis in Skin Health

Thank you, Cindy, I will be seeing a Certified Lymphedema Therapist in a couple of weeks. I've googled lymphedema specialists near me and that's what I got. Are they different from a Lymphedema doctor? I can't seem to figure it out Do you have the name for any online lymphedema support groups? I don't see any when I google.

Wed, Jan 29 8:59am · Lymphedema/Cellulitis in Skin Health

I'm new to this disease, the calf on my right leg has been swollen for about 3 months but my doctor wasn't concerned until I broke out with cellulitis on my ankle which she then treated with an antibiotic. I also have Idiopathic peripheral neuropathy for the past 20 years in my feet and legs. She said the swelling was probably due to the neuropathy but it wasn't. I'm trying to find out any information on it through support from others. I belong to a support group on neuropathy where I have been helped by others with neuropathy, so much more than any doctor. I am grateful for the computer because without it I would probably be on all kinds of prescriptions which the doctors hand out so freely or maybe dead by now. I'm seeing a Certified Lymphedema Therapist (CLT) within the next couple of weeks, and hope it will help me to take care of this issue. I know we're supposed to keep the skin moisturized and wonder if anyone knows of lotion that will help. Thanks

Thank you John for all your info about The Protocol. I placed my order today and I'm all excited to begin a new transition into a happier and healthier lifestyle. I'm looking forward to 525 with less pills to take but I need to start now. 🙂

Hi John,
I read your message and I really want to believe. I've wasted so much time and energy trying all the different programs. The latest is with my doctor for daily vitamin packets which turned out to be something I can't use because of the high amount of B6 in the multi. All together that farce cost me a total of $600, $400 for the office visit and $200 for the vitamins that I can't use. I just get so that I find it hard to trust people anymore. I have idiopathic PIN for 20 years and have not been on any prescription meds for the past 10 years. I'm trying to research a way to help with healthier nutrition and vitamins because I really believe it starts in the gut. I plan to use the vitamin packets I have left sans the B6. I will order the Protocol once I do that. Thank you for your message and I hope you have a happy weekend. 🙂

I joined the facebook solutions group but something didn't sit right with me. I found a link which states that it is a total scam. Because I'm new here I'm not allowed to post the link. I think you might be interested in reading it, ripoffreportdotcom. I am so sick and tired of all the scammers out there who really don't care about our suffering, it's only how they can profit from our misery!

Oct 28, 2019 · Living with Neuropathy - Welcome to the group in Neuropathy

I had to create a new account on FB. I deleted my original one because there was too much drama. I hope they will accept my new name. Thank you for the link. I am obsessed with the belief that vitamins and clean eating will help to relieve some of the misery we all share. I know we can all learn from each other because other people have no idea what we are going through.

Oct 28, 2019 · Living with Neuropathy - Welcome to the group in Neuropathy

I believe it is more about B6 rather than B12 which can exacerbate neuropathy if you have too much of it. My blood levels on B6 are normal so I decided to take a multi with 12.5 of B6 in it. After a week my feet and legs are bright red and hot to the touch. I developed a red rash around my right ankle and I have pain all day. I usually have most of the burning pain at night and am able to function during the day, but not since I've been on the B6. I stopped taking it today so I will post here in about a week to see if it helps. The doctors tell you that the B vitamins in combination will work, but I wonder how many of them take the time to research the adverse reactions of B6 and neuropathy.

Oct 28, 2019 · Insomnia. Nothing seems to help. in Sleep Health

I have no problem falling right to sleep but then wake up within the hour and if I can get back to sleep I'm waking up every couple of hours. If I'm lucky I can get about 4 hours sleep in all. I have tried prescriptions, melatonin, herbal teas, meditation, pm's, etc. The only thing that gets me at least 4 hrs. of sleep without waking up is the ingredients in Benadryl. Taking that every night causes dry mouth, urine retention, and worst of all "Dementia" which is something I don't need at my age because it just comes naturally now! The thing that helps the most is Yogi Bedtime herbal tea and an occasional afternoon cat nap! 😴
