MS: Mimic Lupus, PCOS

Posted in LUPUS, MS tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 1:06 am by PCOSLady

PCOS Lady: I was prompted to post MS symptoms since some overlap Lupus and PCOS … Doctors are misdiagnosing all three, causing conditions to possibly progress worse at times!
~ Symptoms matter! Your symptom history plays a huge roll with diagnosing!
~ Read info in all the sites, each has abit more…
~ Montel Williams has MS…

MS
~
Multiple sclerosis has a probability of affecting 2-150 women out of every 100000. MS, attacks the central nervous system, wherein the immune system starts damaging nerve covering in the brain. The disease usually starts appearing in young adults with a varied level of symptoms. It impacts each individual differently. It is seldom fatal, but in most cases causes disability.
~
One of the most common symptoms of MS in women is the difficulty with vision. One can face blurry eyesight, double vision, blindness in one or both eyes, involuntary movement of the eyes, etc.
~
Early Signs of MS
~
~ balance,m walking and dizziness
~ bladder
~ bowel
~ eyes and sight
~ fatigue
~ memory and thinking
~ mental health
~ pain
~ sexual problems
~ spasms and stiffness
~ speech
~ swallowing
~ tremor
~
Causes and Triggers
~
Muscles are involved in every movement you make. They get longer and shorter to move and hold the body.
If MS causes nerve damage that affects muscle movements, they can cause a range of problems.
~
Recognizing Trigger Factors
~
Investigating potential trigger factors that cause or make your spasms or stiffness worse is a vital step in finding solutions. If identified and addressed, these may reduce or relieve the problem.
~
For example, something as simple as loosening tight clothing might provide some relief.
~
The following are some of the more common trigger factors that you and your doctor or MS nurse might consider:
~
~ an increase in your body temperature (perhaps because of a fever or exercise)
~ infections (for example, bladder or chest infections)
~ if you are experiencing a relapse
~ skin irritation (including pressure sores)
~ a full bladder
~ constipation, causing a full bowel
~ overly tight strapping or clothes
~ a fractured bone (perhaps caused by a fall)
~ problems with posture
~ emotional stress
~
Only a neurologist can diagnose MS…

Lupus
By Mayo Clinic staff
~
Lupus is a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs when your body’s immune system attacks your own tissues and organs. Inflammation caused by lupus can affect many different body systems — including your joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart and lungs.
~
Lupus can be difficult to diagnose because its signs and symptoms often mimic those of other ailments. The most distinctive sign of lupus — a facial rash that resembles the wings of a butterfly unfolding across both cheeks — occurs in many but not all cases of lupus.
~
The most common signs and symptoms include:
~
~ Fatigue and fever
~ Joint pain, stiffness and swelling
~ *Butterfly-shaped rash on the face that covers the cheeks and bridge of the nose
~ Skin lesions that appear or worsen with sun exposure
~ Fingers and toes that turn white or blue when exposed to cold or during stressful periods (Raynaud’s phenomenon)
~ Shortness of breath
~ Chest pain
~ Dry eyes
~ Headaches, confusion, memory loss
~
When to see a doctor
See your doctor if you develop an unexplained rash, ongoing fever, persistent aching or fatigue.

Lymphatic System: Manmade Chemicals

Man-made chemicals: the hidden role of the lymphatic system in the genesis of polycystic ovary, fibrocystic breast disease, and breast cancer.(Quantum Medicine Update)
~
Townsend Letter
April 1, 2009 by Yanick, Paul, Jr.
~
Breast cancer, the most frequent maligant disease in women, is caused by synthetic carcinogenic chemicals, or positive ionic poisons (PIPs). Discovered by the late UC Berkeley researcher Albert Krueger, MD, PIPs are synthetic chemicals with a positive ionic charge that are extremely hard to detoxify from the deeper lymphatic system. PIPs can be both carcinogenic and estrogenic and typically throw the female hormone system into chaos, leading to polycystic ovaries and fibrocystic breast disease.
*
They are found in everyday cosmetics, food, air, water, and pharmaceuticals, and leach out of the plastics used to package food, all of which have been strongly linked to carcinogensis.
*

While it is well known that carcinogens fuel carcinogenesis, research is scanty on the mechanisms underlying why and how PIPs are stored in the lymphatic and breast tissue and fail to be properly detoxified and excreted by the majority of today’s detoxification protocols. PIPs cripple the deeper lymphatic channels and the biliary networks of the liver, reducing bile production and increasing carcinogenic and estrogenic toxicity. Sadly, research is woefully deficient on PIP toxicity of the deep lymphatic channels in the development of female hormonal disorders and breast cancer.
~
In the October 1994 Townsend Letter, I stated: “The wellspring of the immunologic defense is the lymphatic system.” 33 In the 2001 issue, I started: “We have discovered that a high percentage of IBS sufferers have duodenitis, dysbiosis, stagnant lymph flow, and drainage in the deep lymph channels of the gut. …”[34] Could the widespread increase in breast disease be somehow related to stagnant lymph flow in the deep lymph channels of the gut? In a 2005 Nature article titled “Unlocking the Drains,” we read:
~
After centuries of playing second fiddle to the blood system, our
lymphatic circulation is coming into its own as a key player in
diseases ranging from cancer to ashthma. Once dismissed as a mere
drainage network, the body’s “second circulation” [lymphatic system]
is emerging as a crucial player in numerous diseases … and as a
vital part of the normal immune system. (35)
~
All body organs have deep lymphatic drainage functions. Ina alternative medicine, it is critical to consider both deep and superficial channels as integral parts of the lymphatic system. My medical collegues and I have spent over two decades using every sort of manual and electronic lymph drainage device on superficial lymphatic channels, with only minimal success. Since superficial channels converge to form bigger vessels feeding into the thoracic duct or the right lymphatic duct, clinical approaches should be aimed at restoring deep lymphatic drainage as a way to fully cleanse the body of PIPs.
~
At every level of our physiology, PIPs disrupt our symboises with nature, killing off beneficial commensal cells, so that genetic potential we have for cancer can be played out.

New Breakthroughs in Treating Irritable Bowel Syndrome
~
Townsend Letter June 1, 2001 by Yanick Jr., Paul
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is estimated to affect 1520% of adults. Also known as leaky gut syndrome, some IBS sufferers have constipation (difficult or infrequent bowel movements); others have diarrhea (frequent loose stools, often with an urgent need to have bowel movements); and some people experience both.
~
Although mainstream doctors call IBS a functional disorder, it is only because they are unable to detect any sign of disease when the colon is examined in isolation from other organs and systems of the body. IBS causes a great deal of pain, discomfort and distress, and may cause damage to the intestines and liver, and interfere with or even block nutrient uptake causing chronic malnutrition.

Hypopituitarism Pituitary Insufficiency

Posted in FATIGUE, RELATED: HORMONES tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 9:18 pm by PCOSLady

Hypopituitarism Pituitary Insufficiency
~
Pituitary insufficiency post is important since many people are having radiation, brain surgery, etc… today… You may not be told of the long after effects that can occur in you!
~ … My close friend had a deadly cancer removed from his sinus cavity (under eye) a few years ago… The fatigue and pituitary symptoms started two years ago… The symptoms are now progressing real quick! He was up 24/7 now he just wants or has to sleep like 24/7…
~
Hypopituitarism
~
Pituitary Insufficiency
~
Hypopituitarism is a condition in which the pituitary gland does not produce normal amounts of some or all of its hormones.
~
Causes, incidence, and risk factors
~
The pituitary gland is a small structure that is located just below the brain. It is attached by a stalk to the hypothalamus, the area of the brain that controls its function.
~
The hormones released by the pituitary gland (and their functions) are:
~
~ Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) — stimulates the adrenal gland to release cortisol; cortisol helps to maintain blood pressure and blood sugar
~ Antidiuretic hormone (ADH) — controls water loss by the kidneys
~ Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) — controls sexual function and fertility in males and females
~ Growth hormone (GH) — stimulates growth of tissues and bone
~ Luteinizing hormone (LH) — controls sexual function and fertility in males and females
~ Oxytocin — stimulates the uterus to contract during labor and the breasts to release milk
~ Prolactin — stimulates female breast development and milk production
~ Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) — stimulates the thyroid gland to release hormones that affect the body’s metabolism
~
In hypopituitarism, there is a lack of one or more pituitary hormones. Lack of the hormone leads to loss of function in the gland or organ that it controls. For example, no TSH leads to loss of function in the thyroid gland.
~
Hypopituitarism may be caused by:
~
~ Brain surgery
~ Brain tumor
~ Head trauma
~ Infections of the brain and the tissues that support the brain
~ Radiation
~ Stroke
~ Subarachnoid hemorrhage (from a burst aneurysm)
~ Tumors of the pituitary gland or hypothalamus
~
Occasionally, hypopituitarism is due to uncommon immune system or metabolic diseases, such as:
~
~ Hemochromatosis
~ Histiocytosis X
~ Lymphocytic hypophysitis
~ Sarcoidosis
~
Hypopituitarism is also a rare complication after pregnancy, a condition called Sheehan’s syndrome.
~
Symptoms
~
~ Abdominal pain
~ Decreased appetite
~ Decreased sexual interest (in men)
~ Failure to release milk (in women)
~ Fatigue
~ Headache
~ Infertility (in women)
~ Lack of sex drive (in women)
~ Loss of armpit or pubic hair
~ Loss of body or facial hair (in men)
~ Low blood pressure
~ Sensitivity to cold
~ Short height (less than 5 feet) if onset is during a growth period
~ Slowed growth and sexual development (in children)
~ Stopping of menstrual periods (in women)
~ Vision problems
~ Weakness
~ Weight loss
~
Note: Symptoms may develop slowly and may vary greatly, depending upon:

~
~ The number of hormones that are missing and the organs they affect
~ The severity of the disorder
~
Other symptoms that may occur with this disease:
~
~ Face swelling
~ Hair loss
~ Hoarseness or changing voice
~ Joint stiffness
~ Weight gain (unintentional)
~
Signs and tests
~
To diagnose hypopituitarism, there must be low hormone levels due to a problem with the pituitary gland. The diagnosis must also rule out diseases of the organ that is affected by this hormone.
~
Tests include:
~
~ Brain CT scan
~ Pituitary MRI
~ Serum ACTH
~ Serum cortisol
~ Serum estradiol (estrogen)
~ Serum follicle stimulating hormone (FSH)
~ Serum insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1)
~ Serum luteinizing hormone (LH)
~ Serum testosterone level
~ Serum thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH)
~ Thyroid hormone (T4)
~
Levels of a pituitary hormone may be high in the bloodstream if you have a pituitary tumor that is producing too much of that hormone. The tumor may crush other cells of the pituitary, leading to low levels of other hormones.

4 Types of Rosacea (PCOS & Acne)

Posted in ROSACEA tagged , , , , , , , , , , , at 5:25 am by PCOSLady

The 4 Types of Rosacea
in “Understanding Rosacea”
~
Rosacea often begins with easy blushing and flushing of the facial skin. These symptoms may come and go at first. Eventually, redness persists around the nose, extending to the rest of the face. As rosacea progresses, additional facial symptoms such as burning, stinging, pimples, swelling, dry skin, enlarged blood vessels, and eye involvement may occur. These combinations of symptoms fall into the following four subtypes:
~
~ Subtype 1: Facial Redness (Erythematotelangietatic rosacea). Flushing and/or continuous facial redness occurs. Blood vessels are visible, especially around the nose.
~
~ Subtype 2: Bumps and pimples (Papulopustular rosacea). Pimples occur, and puslike lesions may be present, along with the facial redness. You may feel burning and stinging, and blood vessels on your face may be enlarged. This stage of rosacea is also known as acne rosacea.
~
~ Subtype 3: Enlargement of the nose (Phymatous rosacea). Your skin begins to thicken and develops an irregular texture. This thickening is most evident on the nose and can also occur on the ears, chin, cheeks, and forehead. You may have enlarged skin pores in addition to the large blood vessels.
~
~ Subtype 4: Eye irritation (Ocular rosacea). One or both eyes are affected in this subtype. They may be bloodshot, teary, itchy, dry, burning, or stinging, and you may have blurred or decreased vision. It’s common to feel as though you have a foreign body in the eye. This is a serious eye condition; you may need to see an ophthalmologist.
~
Symptoms of the first three subtypes may also be present on the neck, chest, ears, and scalp. Your health care provider can evaluate the subtype of rosacea you have. He or she will prescribe the treatment based on the subtype and additional information provided during an examination.
~
PCOS lady strongly suggests you look at the pictures at http://www.rosaceafacts.com/ site… You may have acne to severe rosacea…

Rosacea in relation to PCOS
~
http://www.hormonehelpny.com/question/hormone_060204.htm
~ Rosacea is partly testosterone-dependant so lowering and/or blocking testosterone can help. Topical metronidazole helps as well. Usually the combination works the best.
~ There is no evidence that progesterone cream helps and I do not recommend it.
~ Low testosterone does not aggravate rosacea but helps it.

Posted in MY JOURNEY of SORTS tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 2:04 am by PCOSLady


“Welcome” to my PCOS blog…

~
I’m Christie, the PCOS Lady…
~
My personal PCOS crusade is taking on an extensive journey for all of “YOU” to learn from!
I feel it’s important to post all i can relating to PCOS… We all know the frustrations we
are faced with when diagnosed with PCOS… Not being properly diagnosed is another issue…
Many other conditions are covered… Lifestyle changes i touch on…
~
PCOS blogs are out there… I feel many cover the same things… We all have our stories, experiences, treatments, etc… making up our PCOS Journey!
~
Being a unique person, i have created my blog(s) in a unique way… I can be seen all over the net passing the PCOS word around!
~
~ Read through all my postings:
~ … *My PCOS Symptoms List is extensive…
~ … *Celiac Disease Symptoms are overlapping numerous medical conditions…
~
~ In General:
~ … FYI my original blog in 2011 had 1002 medical sites attached to it… Mayo Clinic was one, i have the the list… I was highly flattered when i saw the list!
~ … You will be well informed… Truth, honesty and the right to know drives me…
~ … I love research, 1st hand experiences, the internet, forums, blogs, groups…
~ … Doctors and medical personnel, most are lacking the truths and knowledge on many medical issues… PCOS especially, hmm!
~ … My wish: Same page(symptoms) on PCOS for all the medical world!
~ … Cause we know treatments are a “hit & miss” with each woman… No one thing works for all!
~
~ “Me”
~ … “I hate it when good people are done wrong!”
~ … As an Advocate, i have proven some medical professionals wrong and have gotten diagnosis corrected on friends of mine… I have experienced alot!
~ … Malpractice is happening around you! Be aware…
~ … Western medicine, i have been losing confidence in it over the years… Today i consider all the options out there that fit my medical conditions and diagnosed ailments….
~ … I learned at 18 a doctor must keep up with the new medical things from Europe yearly… If they don’t, your doctor is stuck in “yesteryear” literally! *Seek second opinions!!
~ … I am posting scenarios slowly in my blogs…
~ … A doctor’s oath includes “First do no harm…”
Fact: The oath has changed three times over the years…
~
My motto:
Know your symptoms…
Know your treatments and options…
and
YOU know your body!
YOU are in control of your body!
Knowledge is POWER!

~
My hope is you are well informed, enlightened and educated on PCOS , etc… to get the diagnosis, treatments and can maintain your medical conditions for a happy healthy life!
~
A “thank you” to the sites i use and list, blogs, words and pictures i have gathered and use in posts… Credits are through posting your links, etc…

People with certain rheumatic diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus (commonly called lupus), or ankylosing spondylitis (spinal arthritis) may be more likely to have fibromyalgia, too.
~
Several studies indicate that women who have a family member with fibromyalgia are more likely to have fibromyalgia themselves, but the exact reason for this—whether it be hereditary or caused by environmental factors or both—is unknown. One study supported by the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) is trying to identify if certain genes predispose some people to fibromyalgia.

FIBROMYALGIA

Fibromyalgia (FM) and chronic fatigue syndrome are conditions that often occur together and are believed to have a similar underlying cause.

There’s accumulating evidence that defective production of AFP is the culprit. Makes d-ribose a natural candidate for therapy for both.

A published case study showed that a woman with both experienced a decrease in symptoms following supplementation with d-ribose.

A larger study followed 41 patients with both. Subjects took 5 grams of d0ribose 3x a daily until reaching a total of 280 grams. There was a significant improvement in all five categories on a standard score:
~ energy
~ sleep
~ mental clarity
~ pain intensity
~ well being
On average, patients reported a 45% increase in energy levels.

Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome remain complicated and perplexing to scientists, these findings offer real hope for a solution.

How Can I Identify Eating Triggers?
~
Situations and emotions that trigger us to eat fall into five main categories:
~
SOCIAL: Eating when around other people. For example, excessive eating can result from being encouraged by others to eat; eating to fit in; arguing; or feelings of inadequacy around other people.
~
EMOTIONAL: Eating in response to boredom, stress, fatigue, tension, depression, anger, anxiety, or loneliness as a way to “fill the void.”
~
SITUATIONAL: Eating because the opportunity is there. For example, at a restaurant, seeing an advertisement for a particular food, passing by a bakery. Eating may also be associated with certain activities such as watching TV, going to the movies or a sporting event, etc…
~
THOUGHTS: Eating as a result of negative self-worth or making excuses for eating. For example, scolding oneself for looks or a lack of will power.
~
PHYSIOLOGICAL: Eating in response to physical cues. For example, increased hunger due to skipping meals or eating to cure headaches or other pain.

Losing weight is hard! And there’s a surprising reason why – many women have physiological imbalances in their bodies that prevent weight loss, no matter how hard they try. At Women to Women we call this weight loss resistance, and simply put, you must heal those physiological imbalances if you want to lose weight.
