I was told not to work out when I had one. I think because yeast thrives in damp warm places. plus your immune system dips a little bit after your work out. I was also told not to use tampons while I was recovering. I had one once that lasted three weeks! It turns out that the stuff u buy at the store only kills 3 kinds of yeast. There are like 10 di...

I haven't had a period in 2 mos. I think i have had taken a total of 4 home tests at different times in my cycle. Tests all come out negative. But I have all the symptoms of being pregnant, nausea, peeing every ten mins., sensitive to certain smells, & tender breasts. Oh and I am exhausted. I have had two other pregnancies in the last two y...

Oh I forgot one thing. If you are on medications & are looking for side effects, I recommend www.drugs.com. The have not only the consumer information, but they have the Dr's insert for dosage & side effects. It is much more comprehensive. Ellis

I've got thyroid problems too. Who knew the thyroid controls so much! Why was your thyroid partially removed? Are you on any medications at all? Some of your symptoms you describe I have too, but they are medication reactions. I have dry mouth, blurred vision & some times it is hard form to digest what people are saying. I just feel one step beh...

Wow! You really helped me see it in a new light. I guess that Master's degree is working! Since I first wrote my post things have unfortunately gotten worse. The little support he does give me, he now only gives conditionally, as long as I don't talk about my illness or ask for support, and don't spend $$. The dynamic has been inflamed by th...

Let me say first, you are NOT lame, you are very BRAVE for seeking answers.

The Dr. said that the belly weight was part of it. I was diagnosed with inflammatory disease. Put the two together and wa-la I look 6 months pregant I've had every test...

Hey Merida, Boy! I can relate to not wanting to look at yourself in the mirror. I was a size 4 and within 6 mos I'm a size 14. I really can look at my closet and truthfully say, "I have nothing to wear!" But any way... It sounds like you've got a lot of stuff going on. I know that sometimes getting to the doctor is half the ...

I'm so, so sorry you haven't seen a doctor yet. It sounds like your out of pain, is that right? Now just flu-like symptoms? Or both? It seems like the we are all thinking toward a UTI (Urinary Tract Infection, bladder infection). I have had UTI's that gives me flu like symptoms, some times. As far as the UTI goes, you can get a home tes...

Your poor baby! I can feel you are in terrible pain - as you say "searing" pain. I'm so sorry. First thing first. You've got to get to A DOCTOR if only for relief from the pain, but also check out your other symptoms too. Can you ask your mom again? Explaining to her how really bad the pain is? If the pain is getting unbearable, a...
