granulomatous mastitis
MedHelp General - 242 members
This group is intended as a meeting place and forum for those who have been diagnosed with granulomatous mastitis ('GM') or idiopathic granulomatous mastitis ('IGM'). I think one of the greatest challenges with this disease is its rarity and the associated lack of understanding in the medical community. But we can share here - and hopefully make the healing process a little easier for each other.

LITIGATION STRESS SYNDROME
Mental/Emotional Health - 6 members
This is a relatively newly recognized condition. Due to the increasing number of legal actions, especially in the United States, this problem unfortunately will be encountered with increasing frequency. It occurs when a person is named in a lawsuit. A patient may typically report initial shock, dismay, and anger. This is often followed by depressive feelings, especially a feeling of paralysis and lack of power or control over her/his life. Hyperactivity, hyperacute senses and insomnia are common. There is often a feeling of abandonment and aloneness. Despondency can occur, often to the point of self-destructive behavior or even suicide. This is not talked about much but I can personally attest to its effects. Let us know if you are struggling with this as well.
 
What do you think about that?
Private - Healthy Living - 37 members
A group that was recently formed stated that they want people with "strong opinions" but left the part out that you are not allowed to have a strong "opposing opinion". So, you're not free to talk openly and without judgement there. What do you think of talking about whatever you want to talk about? Here? Anything goes.... rant or rave away.
 
This group of men is for support for those days when it gets hard to communicate with the wives as it is hard to have fertility issues and sometimes we are the one's who have to understand and cannot. We are a group that allows an alternate outlet to talk to other men experiencing wives who are down, upset and basically trying to handle getting pregnant without success. It will let individuals talk to others in the same situation who can provide answers and support. This is also open to alll fathers who have had children and can offer any type of advice, welcome all!
 
Tramadol withdrawal
Diabetes - 4 members
So I've been taking Tramadol 50mg for about 3 yrs and gradually increasing to 5 pills per day. Well, I decided to quit and already am having withdrawal symptoms at dropping to 4/day. Nervous, anxious, some depression (not much, just shame), and fuzzy head feeling. I would think it wouldn't take much to kick this drug, but am I underestimating? Plus, should I talk to my MD about getting on xanax or an SSRI to help with withdrawals? Any help is much appreciated.
Chronic Kidney Failure in Dogs
Pets - 23 members
A group for information and discussion and for emotional support for owners and companions of dogs with Chronic Kidney Failure. This is a complex and traumatic illness and affects about a third of all dogs over the age of 12yrs. While there is (as yet) no cure for this disease, there are things that can be done to improve and extend the quality of life for our best friends - and when all else fails, there are people that have traveled this path already that can offer empathy and support to grieving owners. If you wish to ask questions or talk about a particular dog, please head your thread with your dog's name, as this will help identify the discussion.
