I stumbled accross your email and want to let you know that my doctor put me on a powder called PREVALITE. It comes in a packet and I mix it every morning with a couple of ounces of water and some juice. I can eat anything and it has stopped the need to go to the bathroom. It is wonderful. Maybe once in 5 months I might have the good old dumping syndrom hit then it is gone again. No pain, no problem with anything I eat, please ask your doctor to let you try this. It is 5.5 grams of powder. It looks like it is for cholesterol but it works. Good Luck to You. Just a quick note to say hi!
Lisa, the pain you are describing is the same thing my father had. Burning on a side and front. You most likely need to see a chiropractor, It has to be a bone touching your nerves thats where you get that pain from.
I know it's a long time after, but saw your post on line about tingling in your head, arm, leg, etc. Whatever came of that? I am having the same problem and am going through tests.
I just found your note (of 2000) about your son blinking and flexing his neck. We are going through that with my daughter (age 10). Any input would be of enormous help to me - how did things turn out with your son?
I look forward to hearing form you.
My name is Maura. I may be way out of line, but I just found a post you wrote on MedHelp in 2000. It sounded as if you were very young and diagnosed with CHF. I was very interested in you b/c I am 35 and just recently dx with CHF probably d/t chemo. I had in 1997. My EF is 15-20%. The frustration you expressed in 2000 is exactly how I feel now!!!! If you don't mind, I would love to chat with you and wonder how you are doing and have made it through the last 8 years. I also have young children (two 6-yr. olds and a 3-yr. old). Thank you so much. Maura
