I sleep, a lot. Advil or Neproxim helps the joint and muscle pain. Certain types of herbs have been known to help, but make sure that they don't counteract any other medications. (St. Johns Wort + Birth Control Pills = baby, and most people wouldn't even think to look herbs up). I drink at least a cup of tea a day, get my rest, keep warm, and I sleep with one of those herbal pillows and I use aromatherapy spray. The winter is always the worst, though, it gets a little better in summer.

My mom took Prozac for her migraines from it, and it seemed to work okay for her.

It will either be constant headaches, not one day goes by that she does not have a headache or some kind of pain in her head.

She always has aches and pains in her body, her arms or especially her hands will always ache and be sore.

She gets nauseous alot, stomach pains and stomach cramps.

She says she can feel everything inside her body, like she can feel every breath, every movement, every ache, like she is overly concious of everything that goes on inside her body....

I have to tell you that your friend has to got get a complete check-up including a MRI and she can't take no for an answer. A person very close to me had these symptoms and for three years her doctor told her that is stress, pre-menopause, depression he even went so far as to tell her that she was just bored and needed to get a life. This is when she decided that what she needed was to get another doctor. Three days after seeing another doctor and getting a complete work-up and a MRI it was revealed that she had a brain tumor. The other doctor told her her problem was all in her head. He was right.

perhaps it could be that they switched everything over to digital, and some kinda backround resonance is giving them head aches, i find when i Un plug everything before i goto bed i sleep better and wake feeling more rested. Also could be something in her diet. those are some common things i can think thatd be safe to alter

There is a simple blood test for Mono..... its called a Heterophil antibody titre...Monospot for short.

Your friend may be dealing with a Candida overgrowth (aka Candidiasis). This imbalance can manifest itself in a variety of ways which vary from person to person. Even symptoms in the individual will change over time, making it even harder to diagnose the source of the problem. I highly recommend the following book.

Best of luck to your friend.

My thoughts were Candida too as a possibility if she's had an array of antibiotics, but my first recommendation to anyone feeling generally run down with a list of complaints is to do a colon cleanse - and not just any cleanse - it needs to be one that safely removes all debris """and""" replaces enzymes lost as without enzymes you are unable to properly process food and this will lead to all kinds of problems, ending in mental illness (brain is the furthest away from the colon). When the colon is cleansed, the brain would be the first thing to improve as the toxins reverse themselves because the colon is able to process them.

Ninety plus percent of the population have blocked colons and have no idea - so my suggestion is to look at health food store colon cleanses that have a lot of fibre and replace enzymes and acidopholous (good bacteria). I have seen some very ill people have a hundred percent recovery within two weeks. A colon therapist years ago said it's his first treatment for anyone coming to him and just that treatment alleviated about two thirds from having to go back and see him again. I met a Mohawk Medicine Woman (decades ago now) who believed they cured just about everything...

it sounds like depression, kind of straight up depression... what can you tell me about your freinds life ineneral how are things...
anxiety, stress levels?
financial situation, home life, etc....

posted on Jan, 24 2009 @ 02:13 AM
She is pretty stressed, she always worries about something, wether it be money, health, relationship, work etc.

She does get depressed pretty easy as well, if not always.

She eats pretty healthy, vegetables, fruits, drinks alot of water and tea, and she stopped eating meat a couple of months ago.

Thats why I thought it might be stress related, but some of the stuff you guys posted on here of what it might be scares me a bit.

I think i'll have to talk her into going to another doctor this time, and perhaps list some of the things you guys wrote on here so she can tell the doc to look for those things.

Does she mention an intense heat at the top of her head. Does the pain start in the abdomen and work its way up to the head?

This is my first time posting so if I screw up please bear with me and correct me. My wife is having some pretty un-normal medical problems that no doctors seem to be able to figure out. Its a long story so I will try to make it as short as possable. About 8 years ago she tripped on a stump and twisted her right foot. Thinking it was a sprain she tried to walk it out. Didnt work. It swelled like a foot ball. Doctors kept telling her it wasnt broken so it had to be a sprain. Several doctors later they started giving her epadurals (sp), the shots in the back. After six sets of them the doc gave up and sent her to another specialist. He gave her a morphine coctail into the back and instantly killed the nerves in her right foot. After all these years its still has no feeling. All was good for awhile. Then her back started doing the same thing. We junped thru the same insurance hoops and got no wheres. Swimming down at the creek worked wonders. She was improving fast till we got home and had an acident with a 200 lb Husky dog and a momma cat. Ended up with a cracked left knee cap. Here we go again. More doctors and specialist. Not to mention dumb insurance rules. She ended up not being able to walk or even put preasure on her leg for 4 hundred and some odd days before we found a doc that would work with her. She ended up with a total knee replacement. Didnt work. On the outside her knee is healled but the inside is just a mass of pain. Seems everyone is trying to treat the symptoms but never the problem. 542 days now since she has had a day when she could walk. She is now amassing a long list of official medical problems. Diabetic taking insulin. Swelling of the heart membrane so theres a pill for that. High colesterol with pills for that. A pill for the kidney and one for the liver. A thyroid pill and one pill for the diabetes. She eats only to keep the pills from making her sick it seems. Her health is going down hill fast. I forgot the P.A.D. and built up scar tissue in her knee. We know there is a problem that the doctors either dont see or wont speak of. But we have no idea what it is. Any ideas short of death? Thats one solution we have acepted but are seeking another way. Some wheres some one knows what to do. Any ideas will be helpfull. Thanks......

IMHO, the last place anyone should be seeking medical advice is on the internet.

You should seek advice from a local qualified medical professional, then get a 2nd and even a 3rd professional medical opinion/diagnosis.

While most people may offer good advice here, there is simply no way to know if they are qualified to give such advice, or if they have any verifiable credentials.

If you or anyone is suffering from symptoms or a condition that is serious enough to seek advice you should immediately seek out the help of a real life medical professional, referrals to specialists.

Without a proper consultation, examination, tests, diagnosis and/or referrals to specialists there is simply no way to know for sure what is going on. You don't want to waste time, or risk the possibility of acting on dangerous or perhaps misleading advice.

Have her go on a VERY limited diet, and drink only water.

Do not eat any processed foods and see a doctor about a
wide ranging allergy test.

If she drink diet sodas or anything with Aspartame she needs to stop.

Best to go water only until you figure out that culprit.

If you can get a MRI on her without too much expense I'd recommend it.

Good Luck !

Thanks for the reply. The water thing might work. She knows she is highly alergic to aspertain. Thats a bit no no here. As far as MRI's, we have cd copies of quite a few as well as bone scans, blood flow test, nerve conduction test and who knows what else she has suffered thru. This one seems to be a true mystery to us. She only wants the sorse of the pain to go away. Not much into pain pills since what the docs give you dont really work. Thanks again.

A full check-up first of all.
and then depends on the results/
I would ask the patients on this site not to share symptoms! It complicates making a diagnose

and i would recomment Dr Schulze (the USA)/
i a professional doctor and can confirm his methods are best

Thanks for all the responses, it is appreciated.
i've read through all your replies and will be asking all the questions to her in more detail soon, probaly sometime tonight, then i'll be able to give you some more detail.

Here's one...perhaps allergies to food additives...msg, aspertame, that sort of thing. Has she got a real diet soda jones?

Ok, note to self, real the whole thread before responding...

But a tip for the tummy aches...
lactose intolerance can really get to the guts, and a simple pill like lactaid can make it go away. Ditto the gastric cramps that come from antibiotics that wipe out the intestinal flora. A little pro-biotic yogurt and life is good again...both cases so fast it's scary.

These tips don't replace a medical work-up, but some things they can miss. Fibro sounds like a possible hit, as does candida, and doctor's don't always recognise them as 'conditions'. That's why a visit to a naturopath can be a really good idea, as well. Good luck to you both.

Blah, Blah,Blah, is what your getting for a response. Even from the human butchers, opps, I mean from the medical professionals.
I've played that BS role in the military. In the real world, you become a drug pusher for the chemical companies, for a kickback.
You want to resolve the issue or play lab rat with your friend?

Your friend has a chemical imbalance due to issues related to her pancreas.
Certain toxins are not being broken down before entering the blood stream.
You need to resolve this before it leads to a risk to her life.

Google MMS. Read the book first.

The product will oxidize the toxins in her blood and rid whatever it is that's infecting her pancreas.

Medical schools don't teach you anything these days.

Tell your friend, she can thank me later.

Is she or has she ever been on Paxil? I swear, paroxetine is the devil. The I-might-as-well-have-gotten-hooked-on-morphine devil, not the burns-child-molesters-alive devil.

Paxil is the right tool for the right job. If an antidepressant is the answer...and quite often it is, then it is up to the physician to help find the appropriate one.

Lymes is another mystery ailment with more symptoms and treatments than I could name here.Antibiotics will cause an immediate improvement if this is the case.
I suggest a diary to quantify and clarify symtoms.Include food,activity levels,air quality indexes,moods,whatever.It helps when at a doctor's and saves time in diagnosing.It helps also because it makes the whole ball of wax seem a bit more manageable.It is a form of taking control and yet doesn't interfere with standard protocols.
