hope you're feeling better, do you go to your county medical where they charge according to your income? You may be able to get it cheaper there if they have it, I may try that myself! I just spent 4 hours in ergent care to get breathing tx and antibiotics. Feel like crap warmed over :( Glad your feeling better tho. bye xxoo

You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today. You say that the probiotics are too expensive but yogurt is cheap. Yogurt has the same active bacteria as the probiotics do. Yogurt is a probiotic I think,,anyway try it out. Why are you always constipated do you know why? Is it a med that you take? Do you eat fiber in your diet? Just trying to help.

You deserve a big bear hug! Thank you for thinking of me and you are absolutely right about the tea. It is a cup of magic when you are sick. But I'll bet you didn't know about this one! If you have a throat so raw it feels like it will bleed do you know how to fix it? Hot sauce and warm waterr will take the burn out, I swear it works! :))

Just a quick note to say hi! No I wish I could say they are. My computer lacks the capabilities to upload pics so my pics are just favs from the net, that's all I have access to. I am having surgery on Tuesday, a femoral endarterectomy, they will clean out the artery so I will again have good blood flow ( fixing PAD) I hope your doing okay, I'll have to go read your update. Take care enjoy the rest of summer!

You're in my thoughts and prayers, your question about the low systolic pressure & rapid heartbeat sounds like it could be
anxiety, but that would be a good one to ask our resident nursegirl6572, she might be able to help. Are you still working? I drive a school bus but am trying to find a way to survive going on ssdi. Have not filed yet because I'd have to quit my job, I have applied for county medical but don't think I will get it. Take care

You are in my thoughts and prayers. Losing your medical is worst thing that can happen to the people that need it desperately. They don't even help the people who will die without it anymore! This country is horrible now, you are either rich or poor, no middle class anymore. And God help you if you can't work anymore and need help! I hope it works out in your favor! Keep me posted.

Just a quick note to say hi! I know the feeling being a school bus driver I too am unemployed every summer! No year -round pay in my district. I usually go out and find work every summer but this year I had to put my health first. If you call churches sometimes they will help, you may have to call alot. United way, Goodwill, the Lions Club, are a few more. Sometimes if you contact the makers of the drug in question they will provide help. Good Luck & God Bless!

Just a quick note to say hi! Go to your local Health and Human Services office and even if they took your medicaid, they have other resources in the district that could help. Try your local county health clinic too. Good Luck, high blood pressure that goes unchecked can cause a stroke, hurt your kidneys, your eyes, etc so I hope you find a way not to go off your meds.

honey {{hugs}} I will be thinking of you, I am happy though that they found something, I know sometimes it's worse to know that they found something, but now at least you can get treatment or what ever is needed... and yes I would get a second oppion because like you said .. what may look small to one person may be big to another.
I am still having a rough time on my end. <3

Thank you for everything!
Thanks for the note it made my day..... nope doc said it all looked "norma", but he did take some tissue to do test for.... I don't think he went far enough to find the issue... all he did was down the throat into the stomach and the Duadium (?) but nothing past that...... So who knows... still have my MRI on Jan.4 so hope that shows something

A colonoscopy is not really bad. I was out for the whole thing. Have you discussed the possibility of Celiac disease with your GP or GI doc?SOD is a liver problem. The 'sphincter of oddi" releases bile etc into the digestive tract when you eat.  In this dysfunction, the sphincter spasms and closes up, not letting the bile out, and it backs up into the liver causing upper right quadrant pain, and some chest pain, similar to heart attack pains.Did you say yours is lower GI?  Have they done labs and stuff? Dr. Richard Norem in Alexandria LA did my GERD surgery, and he was the same way.  His big thing was that I'm a big girl and need to lose weight, and he says that there is no one there that can diagnose or treat SOD.  He and my GI in Lake Charles  LA  both agree that I need to go to Houston.

Thank you for everything!  Thank you so much for the note....  I am going through the hardest time right now.. In so much pain .. stomach and sides, but no one can find out whats wrong.... went  back to the hospital on Tuesday (past) and they didn't find anything wrong and sent me home on Thursday :(!!!  Went and say the GI that did the operation on Friday and he was a major jerk.... all he cared was that the operation site is healing and looking good.......   I just don't know what to do any more...... This pain is crazy... and still losing weight like crazy.... I am an over sized girl so that's ok, but it's still not good to lose 40lbs in 2 months...... I just don't know what to do anymore......  I want to just be better!!!!

I'm sorry to hear this.  May I ask what kind of digestive disorder?  I'm dealing with SOD, and I have almost become anorexic because of fear of the pain.  Sometimes, having someone that is experiencing similar problems to tell it to can make it not seem as bad.
