Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome
Genetics - 153 members
This group is for members with any form of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.We have this group to share info and support for each other. Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) is a heterogeneous group of heritable connective tissue disorders characterized by articular hypermobility, skin extensibility and tissue fragility. Individuals with EDS have a defect in their connective tissue. It is this tissue that provides support to many body parts such as the skin, muscles, ligaments and organs. The fragile skin and unstable joints found in EDS are due to faulty collagen. Collagen is a protein that acts like glue in the body adding strength and elasticity to connective tissue.
Prayer Group
MedHelp General - 337 members
I have always thought this place needed a prayer forum. Everyone on this site has rough days from time to time or even all of the time and prayer seems to help me get through my roughest days. Since MedHelp no longer allows religious discussions, that doesn't mean we can't pray for each other and our loved ones. Post your prayers and let the healing begin!

Biblical Analysis Group
MedHelp General - 12 members
Forum is Closed for good... finally... read your bible folks, the stuff I told you is no lie but I guess it is hard to believe being there are only closet Christians on this site.. but every now and then you will run into someone like me who cares enough to take the ridicule and persecution, but the games - no, I don't have to deal with that so thats my reason for leaving,,, so someday every single one of you will find out what I told you is true but for many it will be too late.. No one is promised tomorrow. What if you don't wake up tomorrow, do you know where you will spend eternity? Are you sure? I'm sure and you can be too. Think of the things I told you and continue to seek God. Time is VERY short.

granulomatous mastitis
MedHelp General - 229 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.

Information and Support forum for people with chronic digestive problems/diseases, such as - Crohn's Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, IBS, Pancreatitis, GERD, Diverticulosis, Gastritis, Autoimmune Diseases associated with the intestines. Chronic diarrhea, bloating, cramping. DIET MATTERS - LIFESTYLE CHANGES HELP.REDUCE STRSS Getting better without all the DRUGS! What are the most current helpful treatments available for these conditions, your disease? If you have an article, share it. If you have a treatment that works for you, share that too. We will get better because we do have control on our overall health and can eliminate/reduce inflammation in our body. There is power in numbers. When we come together - we have power to overcome and move forward in good health. The more we know the more power we have! Support and Understanding - Chronic illness is very much misunderstood by people that do not suffer from one, they just don't get it. People, even your family members, have difficulty wrapping their brains around these conditions/diseases. There are people that do understand and do experience similar symptoms - You are not alone and can get support and help from people that care. PS: Conventional treatments for Autoimmune diseases and inflammatory conditions work for some, but really only treat the symptoms. It's easy to take a pill and continue with the day without a change. If this makes the pain go away, you think you are better. For a lot of us, our bodies need more and deserve more. We need to make a change and step up and do what our body requires of us to get better. We need to listen to our bodies and respond to our needs. It takes effort and requires motivation, will and faith in something more. **TAKE ACTION TO CHANGE YOUR SITUATION**

What do you think about that?
Private - Healthy Living - 32 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.
questions and concerns
General Health - 3 members
I had a doctor's appointment the other day and forgot to mention to the doctor about a concern. Maybe someone or here can give some advise? About a week ago or so, I blew my nose and nothing but blood came out. Now I'm not know for having bloody noses, in fact I have never had one in my life (to the best of my knowledge) and I was told by a couple people, including my mom, that it's just the dry air. (I mean I do live in Colorado, it does get very dry here) but I have lived here for over 10 years and have never had this happen to me. So this was very frightening to me. Note every once in a while when I blew my nose, there's a little bit of blood. Nothing to worry about though, but that first time, there was quite a bit. Anyone know if this happens during pregnancy, or what might have caused it, and if it its something to worry about? Again,I know people get them, it's normal, but I have never had one in my life...why now?
