Conditions with symptom: 'osteoporosis'
My sister inlaw has rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis. She has had a bladder infection for over two years now and the doctors say there is nothing more they can do. It is so bad she goes to the toilet between ten to fifteen times a night. She is desperate for someone to help her. Is there anyone out there that can help.
Has she tried 'Waterfall D Mannose'. I worked for me for a while but may not help chronic infection? It has a mild anti- inflammatory and helps to wash out the bugs too.
My toe nails grow over the top of my toes and it is quite uncomfortable when I have to cut them also they are quite thick and hard. Any solutions please. I am a 60year old with Osteoporosis and find it difficult bending to cut the nails.
I am 22 years old, female. I was born with 'clicky hip syndrome', which I have been told is not un-common in new born babies. My mother has osteoarthritis in her hip and knee and had a hip replacement aged 50. My Grandmother has Osteoporosis and Scoliosis and i have recently been told my Great Grandmother had very un-even shoulders (one dropped down significantly more than the other). When i was approximately 10 years old i started to experience pain and problems with my right elbow, it would snap and over extended a lot. Over the years it got worse and by the time i was 17, it would often dislocate, lock, pop, crunch and snap and cause pain. I had a mini - reconstruction and was also diagnosed with hyper mobility syndrome. The reconstruction initially helped, although as time has gone on my elbow will lock on the odd occasion again, and snaps quite often still. I am 22 years old now and slowly my entire right hand side of my body is gradually experiencing the same problems i had with my elbow. My hip is causing quite a lot of pain (very achy and throbbing), it pops and snaps a lot and i can feel it grating when i move it (you can hear it grate as well) My shoulders have always been un-even, but now my right shoulder has dramatically dropped and my scapula dislocates very easily. My doctor is new to the job and she is amazed that i feel no pain when my shoulder is popped out? It is only uncomfortable. My right knee over extends quite badly now and aches and snaps quite regularly. The surgeon who repaired my elbow was worried about this joint at the time of my surgery on the elbow and he predicted i would need similar surgery on this knee in the future. My right ankle again has the same issues as above minus dislocation. Apart from the surgeon who repaired my elbow, the only thing doctors can tell me is that i have hyper mobility syndrome and all i can do is exercise and keep strong muscles to make up for the over elastic ligaments and shallow joints. At age 22 i am now at the stage where working out is leaving me in pain? Please can someone give me an answer to what the problem could be? I am sure that i have inherited something, it would be great to know how i can prevent my joints from getting worse and put a name to what the issue may be. Thanks
Hi,HMS is inherited.I have a severe type of hypermobility syndrome so I understand what you are going through.Unfortunately surgery is not the answer most of the time.I can't let you know everything you need to know as it would take ages but you need your gp to refer you to a rheumatologist. Thats not always easy depending on where you live. Also go onto the HMSA website where there is a lot of info that will help you, you can become a member and receive newsletters etc.
I don't know if anyone will be able to help me or give me any advice on what I'm about to tell you , I am a Triple X female at the age of 27yrs and my doctors told my parents when I was a baby I would never walk sit or talk I proved them wrong my mum sent me to mainstream schools and I struggled from time to time but made it through .I have many symptoms which include OCD (checking) , Asthma, Chronic Depression and anxiety \ emotional issues , Stomach Problems, i have a smaller mouth than usual and i had 19 teeth took out all at once as my mouth wasn't big enough for my big teeth to come through i have Flat foot and also some Social Phobias. I had a operation at age 9 as i had a cleft pallet .I started puberty and my body started to change at around 12 yrs old where i put some weight on and at 14 had only 1 menstrual cycle since they my body has never really developed like any other what we call normal female .My bone structure is 3 years behind so my bones are 24 rather that 27 I have to take the pill daily as I do not produce oestrogen there for I have ovarian failure and I am unable to conceive naturally due to early menopause syndrome and i am also prone to osteoporosis . My main reason in contacting you is because of my weight i am obese and due to my ovarian failure and going through the menopause and my metabolism is very low therfor i find it very difficult in losing my weight i feel like my doctors basically don't care and i don't seem to receive enough support to help me it is like they don't understand . My BMI is at 41 and i need to lose weight not just for my self but also to get the one thing i can not do and that is to conceive naturally its so hard to find out that you will never have your own children but where there is help on the NHS you have to obied by there rules and be at a certain weight/BMI of 30 if and when i do reach my goal weight i will receive 3 free goes at IVF . i have found it very difficult over the years to lose weight and i don't know which way to turn for help next all i want is to conceive . i am hoping someone can help me in any way / advice . Also i have never come across any other female or male with an triple x syndrome / xxx chromosome until i met my partner David through my friend he is 31 and he also is a extra x hes syndrome is called Klinefelter syndrome which make things even more complicated for us both to conceive as he is unable to conceive naturally also . you can read about our syndromes by searching for them on any search engine Thank you for your time im sorry about the long essay Amanda Jane x
Hey ladies, gosh I was just checking my hotmail account and the reply to my comment on pmmd from a lady called Mary. For some reason I thought her reply,as well as my comment on this page was only a few months ago. Would you believe reply dated 25 April 2015, yes almost 1 year ago. Where has this year been. Im still undiagnosed due to moving around, having some mental health illnesses I needed to stabilise first and I have to say I have. I definitely have PMDD but I am so scared of finally getting a diagnosis. Does this sound mad? I guess, just thinking out loud now, Im really scared Nick Panay or Professor Studd, whoever I go and see, wont diagnose me because for over 20years, no one has listened to me when Ive told them ie professionals, mental health professionals there's something really wrong with me, other than mentally. I just dont "feel right". Since finding out about PMDD , after thinking I had Bipolar, even giving my blood for research to Cardiff University, Professor Craddock, Bipolar research whom after filling a Bipolar length questionnaire out, said I had Bipolar, Psychiatrists looking at my paperwork said no, I was a "complex" patient and didnt know where to start. Well I did, finally, PMDD. Ive, now, almost 5yrs of paperwork, research on myself which clearly shows Im suffering from pmdd. However, Im going to be very honest here, Ive also been using cocaine for 25years. As said Ive some mental health illnesses from PTSD, self harming, anxiety disorder, now Drug Psychosis (Nov 2014) which I do believe is also slightly menstrual psychosis which Ive now read about but I emailed the professor, Ian Brockington from Action for Menstrual Psychosis who said after reading my paperwork I sent him in November 2015, he didnt think I had any form of menstrual psychosis but it definitely looked like "severe pms". However, he didnt clarify "severe pms" IS PMDD!! Anyhow, Ive his email stating this whihc I guess will help me gve to a new GP. My experience of GPs is bad, the last one, being my Dad's GP surgery, after I moved back home from sheffield to kingston, surrey after 15yrs in 2014. My, then new GP, after purely only asking for a new Mental Health referral from Sheffield Mental Health Team I was under to a new one, asI needed to get on a Psychiatrist waiting list to get diagnoised officially, as had been on a waiting list in Sheffield for over a year before moving and to get a referral to a Gynceologist. Would you believe his reply was.. and that day I was severely pms/pmdd'ing as well as had been self harming, which I showed him. His reply to my requests. Why did I want to see a Psychiatrist, just to be labelled and he said he could not do the two things I asked as he was only allowed to do 1 referral at a time. REALLY??! On that breath, I took a deep one, like my wonderful Sheffield Mental Health CPN and wonderfful Sheffield Mindfulness Kundalini Yoga Therapy teacher had taught me, I breasthed in, counted to 10 and walked out or god help him, my anger issues I had bad then, I would have thumbed him one. Not long after, I endedup in A&E and diagnosed with Drug Psychosis as had a very bad episode, myself actually calling the ambulance ! Anyway over a year on, Im doing real good but as said living here and there as Ive had to detach myself from my Father (another long story - adopted father may I add !) and Im settled now and ready to register with a new Gp in Kent. I live with a good friend whose Bipolar I and anger outbursts and recently now Osteoporosis. She said her mental healt team are wonderful and her GP so.. its time but also is it time to sort the cocaine issue but my sheffield CPN agreed with me I dont have a serious problem. I actualy have been using cocaine mainly on my ovulation days and pms days as it did/does control my mood and some physicaly symptoms. Sorry for the long waffle but any thoughts, anyone? I so need to get diagnosed but am scarred and scarred all a GP will see is the cocaine. Im going to startattending CA as there is one local.
I too have severe PMS and it is also destroying my life. On my ovulation days I feel so tired and depressed it's like I am a complete and utter depressive. This lasts for at least 4 days, I then have at least 7-10 days prior to my period that I am not myself. On my normal days I am such a happy and positive person, but on my bad days, family dont want to be anywhere near me. I hate myself so much and want to end my life. What grabbed me about your story was your use of cocaine, on my bad days, I actually think that cocaine would benefit me, give me energy make me feel normal. How sad is it that we have to put up with this? Why cant doctors help us with this condition? Ive spent fortunes on all sorts of treatments, none of which have worked :(
