Aug 3, 2011 · Unexplained weight gain shooting pain in abdomen area of body in Diabetes/Endocrine System

I am awaiting a call to go back to the urologist as I am having problems voiding when I go to the bathroom. My main doctor said that shes just at a loss as to what to test for since the heart and lungs (to a point) are fine. I do have an endocrinologist that I now have to get to look closer at my blood test results and add a few more test to make sure that things are ok….with regards to the urinary tract cancer did you have frequent or recurrent UTI’s? My mom currently is battling that but wont look into why this is happpening

Thanks for you post, I do appreciate it

They have me on Gabapentin Cyclobenzaprine and Tramadol. I was on Hydrocodone but because I had been on it for a year i was removed. I did the shots as well, they worked for maybe 2 visits and that was it. I hope you find some relief soon.

Has your neurologist done a MRI on your back? The lower one to more precise. I woke up last July and was unable to move. I finally saw a neurologist in September who order that. I had pain that went all the way to my heels (i still have the pain but its now more manageable). He found out that the two lower discs are disintegrating (arthritis). The pain was sudden and is now being treated.

Since 2001 I have slowly been gaining weight. In May of 2001 I weighed about 140 now I am pushing 310. The last year I put on 50 lbs alone and now my doctor is staring to see there are issues. I do have PCOS, IBS, Diabetes, and Asthma and they are very cautious to add me on meds that might harm my liver (I am in the beginning stages of liver disease). So far we have ruled out issues with my heart and the only thing they can find wrong in my lungs is the asthma. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this? I have tired and tried to lose weight and all I seem to do is gain weight. For one week I did weigh my daily and I would lose/gain anywhere form 5 to 10 lbs. Im lost and getting really aggravted at this. The other issue is I have extreme swelling in my hands and feel. They put me on HCT and took me off the Lasix but the only way to keep them down is to take both of them together (even at the risk of kidney damage). Is there anything i can suggest to my dr to test for? Also I have started having issues with my bladder and dont empty it nearly enough or at all.

Jul 28, 2011 · I'm not very sure in Mental Health

I have BPD and they have a new therapy out there that might help you its called DBT therapy and they help you to deal with certain situations and how to respond to people. My issue was I also said yes to everyone and never said no. I have learned to say no. Most mental health clinics are now doing DBT therapy. I hope it helps hun, I have been where you are now and there is hope 🙂

Jul 28, 2011 · My child is 5 and has ADHD and ODD - suggestions? I need help! in About Kids & Teens

My son is now 12 and I found that taking things away and making him earn is a much better punishment then time out (they get used to it and its no big deal to them) and even popping him on the butt. Sometimes when she is in a rage the best thing you can do is to hold her (when my son was her age we had to wrap our body around his to get him to stop and it worked). He is currently in the hospital for a violent rage and will be home this week. We will be starting Intensive Inhome therapy as that is where most of his rages occur. He is fine outside of the home on that regard.

Also a good thing to try (and what we currently are setting up as well) Is to get a jar (you can even get one she can decorate) and get about 50 or so marbles. What you do is make a list of bad behavior she will be penalized for and good behavior that she will be rewarded for. Then at the bottom you put what she can earn for say 10 marbles, 20 marbles and so on. You start the week with 30 Marbles and them add or subtract accordingly
