GLUTEN INTOLERANCE
~
PCOS Lady:
Gluten Intolerance and Celiac Disease can be wicked to and in you… Three sets of symptoms are listed for you with the sites… The symptoms overlap other medical conditions… Headaches may be explained by being tested for one of these conditions…
~ I stress everyone be tested for Celiac Disease to know…
~
FACT: Most doctors can not draw a diagnosis from all your symptoms! They jump to diagnose you on a few only, hence a misdiagnosis!
FACT: Most doctors can not read your blood tests as a whole, only a few results they understand together…
~ I suggest you see an Endocrinologist, who specializes on internal chemistry, etc… (especially Diabetes)
~
SYMPTOMS COUNT! ~ All your symptoms… ~ Keep track of them… ~ It is your life!

Gluten Intolerance Symptoms – How Do You Know If Gluten Is Making You Sick?
~
* What are gluten intolerance symptoms?
* Are people with gluten intolerance just fussy eaters with a new excuse for their picky food habits?
~
Research shows that gluten sensitivity in some form, including celiac disease and mild gluten intolerance, affects approximately 15% of the US population. These statistics are likely to be similar in Western countries with similar health issues and dietary patterns.
~ Are you one of these people?
~ How do you recognize gluten intolerance symptoms?
~
First of all let’s * identify the difference between celiac disease and gluten intolerance. Celiac disease is an immune reaction, a severe sudden onset allergic reaction, to the protein called gluten. This is commonly found in grains such as wheat, rye, barley and oats. While celiac disease is initially an auto-immune disorder, it is also a disease of malabsorption, because essential nutrients are not absorbed. Therefore one of the most devastating symptoms of long-term undiagnosed celiac disease is malnutrition.
~
Gluten intolerance often has a slower onset than celiac disease, and may be hard to diagnose due to the broad range of symptoms and causes.
~
If you imagine a continuum of gluten intolerance symptoms, celiac disease is usually at the most extreme end with immediate autoimmune reactions. Some people with celiac disease may not have symptoms, but internally malabsorption and malnutrition can erode health over many years. Both celiac disease and gluten intolerance can be exacerbated by emotional stress, infection, surgery, pregnancy and childbirth. Every individual with some level of gluten intolerance or allergy may experience different shades of symptoms, hence the challenge for medical practitioners to diagnose.
~
So what are the specific symptoms of gluten intolerance and
celiac disease?

~
~ Weight loss or weight gain
~ Nutritional deficiencies due to malabsorption e.g. low iron levels
~ Gastro-intestinal problems (bloating, pain, gas, constipation, diarrhea)
~ Fat in the stools (due to poor digestion)
~ Aching joints
~ Depression
~ Eczema
~ Head aches
~ Exhaustion
~ Irritability and behavioural changes
~ Infertility, irregular menstrual cycle and miscarriage
~ Cramps, tingling and numbness
~ Slow infant and child growth
~ Decline in dental health
~
Undiagnosed for long periods of time, food intolerances have been found to contribute to diabetes, bowel cancer, anemia and osteoporosis.

~ Dummies … Symptoms of Gluten Sensitivity and Celiac Disease … #4 of 7 in series segments …
Celiac disease and gluten sensitivity share some of the same symptoms. Although the actual damage occurs in the gastrointestinal tract, specifically in the small intestine, the symptoms manifest in many different ways and often show up throughout your entire body.
~
Gluten sensitivity and celiac disease have hundreds of symptoms; the following lists don’t contain them all, but are a good sampling:
~
* Gastrointestinal symptoms: These are some of the “classic” — although not the most common — symptoms of celiac disease:
~
~ Abdominal pain and distension
~ Acid reflux
~ Bloating
~ Constipation
~ Diarrhea
~ Gas and flatulence
~ Greasy, foul-smelling, floating stools
~ Nausea
~ Vomiting
~ Weight loss or weight gain
~
* Nongastrointestinal symptoms: Interestingly, although gluten sensitivity and celiac disease affect the gut, most people’s symptoms are not gastrointestinal in nature. This partial list includes just some of the more than 250 symptoms not centered in the digestive tract.
~
~ Fatigue and weakness (due to iron-deficiency anemia)
~ Vitamin and/or mineral deficiencies
~ Headaches (including migraines)
~ Joint/bone pain
~ Depression, irritability, listlessness, and mood disorders
~ “Fuzzy brain” or an inability to concentrate
~ Infertility
~ Abnormal menstrual cycles
~ Dental enamel deficiencies and irregularities
~ Seizures
~ Clumsiness (ataxia)
~ Nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy)
~ Respiratory problems
~ Canker sores (apthus ulcers)
~ Lactose intolerance
~ Eczema/psoriasis
~ Rosacea (a skin disorder)
~ Acne
~ Hashimoto’s disease, Sjögren’s syndrome, lupus erythematosus, and other autoimmune disorders
~ Early onset osteoporosis
~ Hair loss (alopecia)
~ Bruising easily
~ Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
~ Muscle cramping
~ Nosebleeds
~ Swelling and inflammation
~ Night blindness

Why You Should Eliminate Wheat from Your Diet
http://www.kitchendaily.com/read/why-you-should-eliminate-wheat-your-diet?icid=maing-grid7|maing9|dl8|sec1_lnk2%26pLid%3D245778
~ Kitchen Daily … Why You Should Eliminate Wheat from Your Diet … Gluten, a protein composite of gliadin and glutenin found in wheat and grains, may be addictive. Perhaps this explains the uncontrollable cravings for carbs many of us experience. This news was hard for us to digest, but not nearly as hard as gluten is on our intestines.
~
Since the 1950s, when scientists began cross-breeding wheat to make it grow faster, we’ve seen a few issues arise. Wheat is not as healthy as it used to be. U.S. plant scientist, Norman Borlaug, who won the the Nobel Prize for his work in wheat hybridization may have introduced some compounds that aren’t exactly friendly to our bodies. In fact, there are proteins found in today’s wheat that scientists can’t trace back to the original plant.
~
What could this mean for you? Unfortunately, digestion issues along with a slew of potential diseases, such as celiac’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and IBS. These problems can pertain to anyone, not just to those with severe gluten reactions or celiac’s disease.

VASOVAGAL SYNCOPE – VVS
~
PCOS Lady:
Many people are experiencing wanting to faint… That feeling in time is progressing to actually passing out! Many doctors are not looking further than minor diagnosing of fatigue things… Leaving symptoms to progress extremely fast in cases!
~ 2 friends i know have passed out… Both in their early 50’s… One woman passed out at work(she declined any info)… The other a man and his story is posted in a post here… Almost Fatal Crash …. https://pcoslady.wordpress.com/category/fatigue-2/
~ He now is working with a cardiologist that is putting him on a rotating table to measure his results…
~ I watched his symptoms progress extremely fast over 4 months! He and his friend are very lucky to be alive after the crash!

~ NINDS: National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke …
~
What is Syncope?
~
Syncope is a medical term used to describe a temporary loss of consciousness due to the sudden decline of blood flow to the brain. Syncope is commonly called fainting or “passing out.” If an individual is about to faint, he or she will feel dizzy, lightheaded, or nauseous and their field of vision may “white out” or “black out.” The skin may be cold and clammy. The person drops to the floor as he or she loses consciousness. After fainting, an individual may be unconscious for a minute or two, but will revive and slowly return to normal. Syncope can occur in otherwise healthy people and affects all age groups, but occurs more often in the elderly.
~
There are several types of syncope. Vasovagal syncope usually has an easily identified triggering event such as emotional stress, trauma, pain, the sight of blood, or prolonged standing. Carotid sinus syncope happens because of constriction of the carotid artery in the neck and can occur after turning the head, while shaving, or when wearing a tight collar. Situational syncope happens during urination, defecation, coughing, or as a result of gastrointestinal stimulation. Syncope can also be a symptom of heart disease or abnormalities that create an uneven heart rate or rhythm that temporarily affect blood volume and its distribution in the body. Syncope isn’t normally a primary sign of a neurological disorder, but it may indicate an increased risk for neurologic disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), diabetic neuropathy, and other types of neuropathy. Certain classes of drugs are associated with an increased risk of syncope, including diuretics, calcium antagonists, ACE inhibitors, nitrates, antipsychotics, antihistamines, levodopa, narcotics, and alcohol.

About.com

~
VASOVAGAL
~
Vasovagal Reflex
~
Why do some IBS sufferers have these symptoms? The most likely explanation is the body’s own vasovagal reflex. The reflex stems from our vagus nerve, which is a nerve that travels from our brains to our colons, and contributes to a wide variety of physical functions, including swallowing, speaking, heart rate and digestion.
~
The vasovagal reflex is a sudden triggering of the vagus nerve. This may occur in response to a variety of factors, including:
~
~ Fear
~ Emotional stress
~ Gastrointestinal illness
~ Pain
~ Sight of blood
~ Standing for a long time
~ Standing up quickly
~ Trauma
~ or another one for you! (everyone is different on thresh holds)
~
The reflex results in an abrupt dropping of blood pressure and a sudden reduction in heart rate. At its worst, the reflex will result in fainting, as blood flow shifts away from the head and down into the legs. Fainting that is triggered by the vasovagal reflex is called vasovagal syncope.
~
WARNING SIGNS
~
At the appearance of warning signs such as;
~ lightheadedness
~ nausea
~ cold and clammy skin
~
Counter-pressure maneuvers that involve gripping fingers into a fist, tensing the arms, and crossing the legs or squeezing the thighs together can be used to ward off a fainting spell. If fainting spells occur often without a triggering event, syncope may be a sign of an underlying heart disease.
~
YOU may experience the scenario listed below like my male friend does every time now…
~
PASSING OUT ~ WARNING SIGNS
~
~ nausea
~ profusely sweating
~ lightheadedness
~ weak
~
AMBULANCE CALLED … (“KEY” scenario)
~
~ real low heart rate
~ real low blood pressure
~ you are deemed A-Fib by EMT people
~
HOSPITAL ER … (“KEY” scenario)
~
~ heart rate OK
~ blood pressure OK
~ no sign of being A-Fib minutes later!
~ no evidence of a problem…
~
NOTE:
This scenario happens with no trail of evidence to track… Even a heart monitor may not pick up on it! Triggers cause the episodes, but may not cause them every time!
~ YOU must keep a journal on your episodes… List the triggers, the feelings, your symptoms, the time of day, how long out, how you felt after, etc… IT all shows your caring cardiologist a pattern…

Vasovagal Syncope
~
Medical Author: Benjamin C. Wedro, MD, FAAEM
Medical Editor: Melissa Conrad Stöppler, MD
~
Vasovagal syncope is a common cause of fainting. The vagus nerve is overstimulated and causes the body’s blood vessels to dilate and the heart to slow down. This anti-adrenaline effect decreases the ability of the heart to pump blood upward to the brain against gravity. Without blood flow, the brain turns off. In Victorian England, when this happened because young ladies’ sensibilities were easily offended, this was called a swoon.
~
Fortunately, the body is able to correct this temporary problem and return normalcy to the circulatory system in a matter of seconds. Unfortunately, that time delay allows the faint to happen, and while the faint itself is not a big deal, the potential complications may be. Falling is tough as you get older, kids bounce but adults tend to break. Imagine fainting while driving a car or swimming in a lake. While the grizzled veterans of the medical community laugh at the “routine faint” and then welcome the new students into their fraternity, blacking-out is not something to be taken lightly.
~
People faint at the sight of blood. Parents faint when their kids get immunized. Older people faint in church. Many types of emotional and physical stressors can stimulate the vagus nerve to do damage. But on occasion, the cause of the faint is not vasovagal syncope but something more serious. Encouraging the person to seek medical care or calling 911 may save a life. While it may be an inconvenience or sometimes an embarrassment to a patient, being unconscious is not normal. It may be easily explained…but it’s not normal.

Walking Barefoot for Good Health

Posted in NATURAL WELL BEING tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 3:46 pm by PCOSLady

~
Why Walking Barefoot Might Be an Essential Element of Good Health
~
September 20 2012
~
By Dr. Mercola
~
When’s the last time you kicked off your shoes and reveled in the feeling of the Earth under your feet?
~
Been awhile?
~
It may sound hard to believe, but engaging in this simple pleasure could give your health a much-needed boost.
~
Often it is the case that engaging in activities that feel good on an intrinsic level really are good for your health — like the feeling of the afternoon sun warming your bare skin.
~
Walking barefoot outside, with the soles of your feet free to mesh with the surface of the Earth – an activity known as Earthing, or grounding — is another such case.
~
I have been personally intrigued with grounding for nearly seven years and have been seeking to ground myself most of the time.
~
This is a fascinating leading-edge concept, and I would strongly encourage you to carefully read the featured article for more details.
~
You are an Electrical Being, and the Earth’s Surface is Electrically Conductive
~
You are an electrical being — your body regularly produces positive charges, which can oxidize and harm you if it is excessive..
~
The Earth’s surface is electrically conductive; it maintains a negative charge with its free electron supply continually replenished by the global atmospheric electrical circuit.
~
A Review of Earthing Research Shows Significant Benefits
~
In a new article published in the Journal of Environmental and Public Health, researchers reviewed the Earthing research, revealing an impressive impact on a variety of health conditions. Most of the studies involved indoor testing methods that simulated being barefoot outdoors. This was found to offer improvements in the following conditions:
~
~ Sleep disturbances, including sleep apnea
~ Chronic muscle and joint pain, and other types of pain
~ Asthmatic and respiratory conditions
~ Rheumatoid arthritis
~ PMS
~ Hypertension
~ Energy levels
~ Stress
~ Immune system activity and response
~ Heart rate variability
~ Primary indicators of osteoporosis
~ Fasting glucose levels among people with diabetes
~
PCOS Lady:
I love walking barefoot! Now i know the health benefits for it… Spiritual people know about grounding and the importance in it… Go barefoot’n!
~
Another invaluable benefit is this: when your body is grounded, researchers write, “its electrical potential becomes equalized with the Earth’s electrical potential through a transfer of electrons from the Earth to the body.” This, in turn, offers an “umbrella” of protection against the electromagnetic fields that are now ubiquitous in our environment. The paper continues:
~
“The study confirms the “umbrella” effect of earthing the body explained by Nobel Prize winner Richard Feynman in his lectures on electromagnetism. Feynman said that when the body’s potential is the same as the Earth’s electric potential (and thus grounded), it becomes an extension of the Earth’s gigantic electric system. The Earth’s potential thus becomes the “working agent that cancels, reduces, or pushes away electric fields from the body.”
~
Most of the scientists working in this area now believe that the beneficial effects are mediated through reduction in inflammation and a thinning of the blood. In fact the blood thinning effect is so profound that if you are taking blood thinners it is recommended to immediately consult with your doctor, as most likely your blood thinner will need to be lowered.
~
Two Ways to Make Sure You Stay Grounded
~
The effects of grounding appear to be so profound that researchers suggest health practitioners prescribe outdoor “barefoot sessions” as the weather permits. This is as simple as it sounds – you kick off your shoes and socks and walk barefoot on the grass, the dirt, the sand or whatever “Earth” is available to you. Studies suggest that benefits such as pain relief and stress reduction may occur in just 30-80 minutes of barefoot time a day.
~
This can obviously be a challenge during the winter, or if you live in an urban area without easy access to parks or other barefoot-friendly surfaces, so the other option is to use a grounding or Earthing pad, which allows you to get the benefits of the Earth’s electrons even if you’re indoors, especially when you’re sleeping. I’ve been using one for several months now, especially when I travel by plane, as air travel is a suspected cause of weakening bio-electric currents.
~
So, like access to regular sun exposure, walking barefoot outside is a grossly neglected foundational practice that you can easily correct. In the Journal of Environmental and Public Health, researchers concluded:
~
“Emerging evidence shows that contact with the Earth—whether being outside barefoot or indoors connected to grounded conductive systems—may be a simple, natural, and yet profoundly effective environmental strategy against chronic stress, ANS [autonomic nervous system] dysfunction, inflammation, pain, poor sleep, disturbed HRV [heart rate variability], hypercoagulable blood, and many common health disorders, including cardiovascular disease.
~
The research done to date supports the concept that grounding or earthing the human body may be an essential element in the health equation along with sunshine, clean air and water, nutritious food, and physical activity.”
~
Read the entire article on the site…
~
NOTE
~
PCOS Lady:
Doctors rarely ever tell you to walk barefoot outside! Makes me think and realize they wouldn’t cause we would not be as sick as we are if we did walk outside barefoot grounding ourselves…
~ I remember seeing on TV years ago a man wake up in the am with the bottom half of his arm missing, no blood…
~ The electrical charge in his body blew it off! Cauterized it as well…
~ Sure is something to remember!

RSD

Posted in RSD tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , at 1:44 am by PCOSLady

PCOS Lady:
Many PCOS ladies are being dx’d with RSD too!
~
RSD
~
http://arthritis.about.com/od/rsd/a/rsd.htm
~
RSD – What Is Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome?
Also known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
~
Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) is referred to by several other names:
~
~ Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome – RSDS
~ Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
~ Shoulder-Hand Syndrome
~ Causalgia
~ Sudeck’s Atrophy
~
The syndrome is as complicated as its nomenclature.
~
What Causes RSD?
~
According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), RSD is “a chronic pain condition that is believed to be the result of dysfunction in the central or peripheral nervous systems.”
~
According to MedicineNet, RSD involves “irritation and abnormal excitation of nervous tissue, leading to abnormal impulses along nerves that affect blood vessels and skin.”
~
Animal studies indicate that norepinephrine, a catecholamine released from sympathetic nerves, acquires the capacity to activate pain pathways after tissue or nerve injury, resulting in RSD.
~
Another theory suggests RSD which follows an injury is caused by triggering an immune response and symptoms associated with inflammation (redness, warmth, swelling).
~
RSD is not thought to have a single cause, but rather multiple causes producing similar symptoms.
~
Celebrity Announces Battle With RSD
~
American Idol judge and celebrity Paula Abdul announced that following a 25 year battle with chronic pain, precipitated by a cheerleading accident when she was 17 years old, she has been diagnosed with RSD.
~
The media attention given to Abdul’s medical struggle has placed RSD on front pages and magazine covers. RSD is among the 100 types of arthritis and rheumatic diseases. It is estimated that between 500,000 and 750,000 people have RSD.
~
http://arthritis.about.com/od/diseasesandconditions/Types_of_Arthritis_Rheumatic_Diseases_Related_Conditions.htm
~ 100 Types of Arthritis – Rheumatic Diseases
~
What Are The Symptoms Of RSD?
~
RSD usually affects one of the extremities (arms, legs, hands, or feet). The primary symptom of RSD is intense, continuous pain.
~
According to NINDS, the list of symptoms includes:
~
~ burning pain
~ increased skin sensitivity
~ skin temperature changes (warmer or cooler than opposing extremity)
~ skin color changes (blotchy, purple, pale, red)
~ skin texture changes (shiny, thin, sweaty)
~ changes in nail and hair growth patterns
~ stiffness and swelling in affected joints
~ decreased ability to move affected extremity
~
Pain can spread to a wider area (i.e. from finger to entire arm) and can spread to the opposite extremity (i.e. from left arm to right arm). Emotional stress can cause symptoms to worsen.
~
Some experts suggest there are three stages of RSD, during which progressive changes occur in the skin, muscles, joints, ligaments, and bones of the affected area. The progression has not been confirmed by clinical studies though.
~
Stages of RSD
~
Stage 1
~
~ lasts 1 to 3 months
~ severe, burning pain
~ muscle spasm
~ joint stiffness
~ rapid hair growth
~ skin color and temperature changes
~
Stage 2
~
~ lasts from 3 to 6 months
~ pain which becomes more intense
~ swelling
~ decreased hair growth
~ nails which are cracked, brittle, grooved, spotty
~ softened bones
~ stiff joints
~ weak muscle tone
~
Stage 3
~
~ irreversible changes to skin and bone
~ pain is continuous
~ muscle atrophy
~ severe limited mobility
~ contractions of muscles and tendons (limbs may be twisted)
~
What Triggers RSD?
~

There can be numerous triggers for RSD including:

~
~ injury or trauma
~ surgery
~ degenerative arthritis of the neck
~ shoulder problems
~ heart disease
~ stroke
~ diabetes
~ cancer
~ infection
~ brain diseases
~ thyroid disorders
~ carpal tunnel
~ shingles
~ certain medications
~
In an estimated one-third of patients with RSD, there is no associated trigger.
~
How Is RSD Diagnosed?
~
A patient’s clinical history (signs and symptoms) are the major factor in diagnosing RSD. The diagnosis is made difficult because many of the symptoms overlap with other conditions.
~
There is no specific blood test or other diagnostic test for RSD. X-rays can show thinning of bones (osteoporosis). Nuclear bone scans can show characteristic uptake patterns which help diagnose RSD.
~
How Is RSD Treated?
~
Treatment focuses on relieving painful symptoms associated with RSD. Treatment can include:
~
~ physical therapy and exercise
~ psychotherapy to relieve stress, anxiety, and depression
~ sympathetic nerve blocks
~ surgery including sympathectomy (considered controversial)
~ spinal cord stimulation
~ intrathecal drug pumps
~ medications including:
.. ~ topical analgesics
.. ~ anti-seizure drugs
.. ~ antidepressants
.. ~ corticosteroids
.. ~ opioids
~

Celebrity Announces Battle With RSD

~

~ MedicineNet; My Secret Battle (Paula Abdul), PEOPLE
~
PCOS Lady:
Many RSD sufferers do not agree with Paula’s ice packs or her ways of treatments… Point: Treatments vary in each person… 1st hand experiences from forums and groups is best i feel…
~
Is Enbrel Commonly Used To Treat RSD?
~
Enbrel is among the TNF blockers used to treat rheumatoid arthritis. When asked if it is used to also treat RSD, rheumatologist Scott Zashin M.D. commented, “Enbrel is not FDA approved to treat RSD. Studies have shown some benefit in treating nerve inflammation. Since RSD is felt to have a neurological component, it might be beneficial and worth a try. This condition may sometimes be difficult to treat with standard therapies.”

~ Dr. Flechas is a nationally known speaker on the diagnosis and successful treatment of Fibromyalgia, one of the 10 most frequently misdiagnosed syndromes in North America today. Dr. Flechas is considered to have broken a paradigm in effectively treating Fibromyalgia pain without the use of anti-depressant, anti-inflammatory, or narcotic medications. His treatment involves the use of Nitroglycerine to increase Nitric Oxide, a natural pain killer found in the body. He has recently found the use of essential oils from plants to decrease the pain of FMS.
~
Dr. Flechas is a family practitioner, specializing in the treatment of fibromyalgia and chronic pain. With over 700 fibromyalgia patients, he has a wealth of information to share.
~
Dr. Jorge Flechas has developed an effective protocol for treatment of Fibromyalgia Syndrome.
~
THE STATISTICS:
~
Although this statistic may be significantly understated due to the frequent misdiagnosis of this debilitating syndrome, Fibromyalgia afflicts between two and four percent of the population in the United States today. Fibromyalgia appears to be most frequently present in women with a ratio of 20 women to every 1 man. It is especially prevalent among those women in the age range of 35 to 55. The average age of first onset is 45. It has been diagnosed in teenagers and in children as young as seven years of age.

FMS has been discussed in the medical literature for many years. It was first described by William Balfour, a surgeon at the University of Edinburgh, in 1816. Our medical alertness to this syndrome is on the rise, and as a consequence more and more patients are being diagnosed in today’s medical environment. It is of interest to note that health care practitioners in China have no recorded incidence of Fibromyalgia, nor does it appear in third world health clinics as predominantly as it does in Western nations such as the United States.

Fibromyalgia Symptoms
~
by Mary J. Shomon
~
A significant percentage of the estimated 20 million people with hypothyroidism end up also being diagnosed with fibromyalgia, an important connection discussed in my new book Living Well With Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.
~
Fibromyalgia affects as many as 8 million people in the U.S., occurring mainly in women of childbearing age. Symptoms usually arise between the ages of 20-55 years, but the condition also may be diagnosed in childhood. Among the entire population, it’s estimated that as many as 3-6% of the general population, including children, meet the criteria for diagnosis of fibromyalgia. This would make fibromyalgia over twice as common as rheumatoid arthritis. In general, fibromyalgia is strikes women seven times more often than men, according to a 1998 National Institutes of Health report.
~
Fibromyalgia Symptoms
~
Symptoms of Fibromyalgia typically include:
~
~ Feeling of pain, burning, aching, and soreness in the body
~ Headaches, tenderness of the scalp, pain in the back of the skull
~ Pain in the neck, shoulder, shoulder blades and elbows
~ Pain in hips, top of buttocks, outside the lower hip, below buttocks, and the pelvis
~ Pain in the knees and kneecap area
~ Fatigue, unrefreshing sleep, waking up tired, morning stiffness
~ Insomnia, frequent waking, difficulty falling asleep, or falling asleep immediately
~ Raynaud’s phenomenon (where your hands feel cold, numb, or turn blue, when exposed to temperature changes)
~ Irritable bowel syndrome, diarrhea and constipation, bloating, cramping
~ Balance problems
~ Neurally mediated hypotension — when you stand up, your blood pressure drops, which can make you feel faint, dizzy, nauseous, your heart rate drops, and you can even pass out
~ Balance problems
~ Restless leg syndrome
~ Sense of tissues feeling swollen
~ Numbness, tingling and feeling of cold in the hands and feet
~ Chest pain, palpitations
~ Shortness of breath
~ Painful periods
~ Anxiety, depression and “fibrofog” — the term used to describe the confusion and forgetfulness, inability to concentrate and difficulty recalling simple words and numbers, and transposing words and numbers
~ Frequent urination

Aspartame and Diabetes – Is it a bad combination?
So what is the concern over aspartame and diabetes? The American Diabetes Association (ADA) is recommending and accepts the FDA’s conclusion that the consumption of Aspartame is safe and can be part of a healthy diet.
~
Despite the research that is sounding the alarm all over the country and all over the world and despite the fact that an entire state, New Mexico, is trying to ban Aspartame, this dangerous substance is still being considered a “part of a healthy diet.” YIKES!
~
Are you looking for an alternative to aspartame? Try xylitol sweetener or stevia sweetener. And if you think you aspartame has effected your health you may want to consider an aspartame detox!
~
http://www.stevia.com/
Stevia has many helpful properties.
It has:
~
~ No sugar and no calories.
~ Anti-inflammatory effects.
~ Is 100 percent naturally derived.
~ 250 to 300 times the sweetness of sugar.
~ Heat stability to 200 degrees Celsius (392 degrees Fahrenheit).
~ No fermentation properties.
~ Flavor-enhancing qualities.
~ Plaque-retardant and Anti-caries properties to help prevent cavities.
~ Been recommended for diabetics because it does not spike insulin.
~ Anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties.
~ Been shown to lower blood pressure in those with hypertension.
~
Over 100 phytochemicals have been discovered in Stevia, and it is rich in terpenes and flavonoids. Besides having been in use for hundreds of years, extensive testing in animals has demonstrated no harmful effects. Its main sweet chemical, stevioside, has been found to be nontoxic in acute toxicity studies with rats, rabbits, guinea pigs, and birds. It also has been shown that it does not cause cellular changes nor affect fertility. The natural stevia leaf also has been found to be nontoxic and has no mutagenic activity.
~
Stevia can be used in cooking and as a tabletop sweetener.

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: Mimics PCOS, 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.

Who Gets FMS? (Fibromyalgia)
~
Answer: According to a paper published by the American College of Rheumatology (ACR), fibromyalgia affects 3 to 6 million – or as many as one in 50 – Americans. For unknown reasons, between 80 and 90 percent of those diagnosed with fibromyalgia are women; however, men and children also can be affected. Most people are diagnosed during middle age, although the symptoms often become present earlier in life.
~
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.

Article: Restoring Cellular Energy Metabolism
by LEF.org … October 2012


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.
