FIBROMYALGIA OR MTHFR? METHYLENETETRAHYDROFOLATE REDUCTASE

When I was diagnosed with POTS and IST and Fibromyalgia I knew that there was something causing all of this misery. And I was right! Ll of my research brought me to a POTS diagnosis and when my neurologist told me that I had nerve damage and that if we could find that cause of […]

A long line of dietary blunders and truffles

Ok, so I had birthday cake and pizza at the beginning of the month and truffles and Chinese on Valentines. So what? So I think I have finally learned that I have to plan for those times too. The only way that I know of to avoid take out or being surprised with sweets to […]

Autonomic neuropathy,nerve pain and feet and SUGAR

I am really tying to understand the whole nerve damage thing. Apparently while nerve damage can be caused by diabetes there are other blood sugar problems that don’t show up on tests (or the right tests are not being done) that can also cause damage to nerves.

Nausea and cramps :( and a nifty gift from hubby

I must have a intestinal bug because my gut is just so unhappy today. I finally got some relief from drinking some homemade ginger tea but every time I dare eat it comes right back. I am so achy it makes me wonder if I am coming down with something more. With all this lovely […]

Its always something

today my hand hurts something awful. I didn’t smash it in a door or anything. Usually that might be a reasonable assumption but not this time. I have had gout in the past and I am a little worried that this is that all over again. I sure hope not.If you have ever had a […]

beautiful weather equals feeling terrible
