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 […]

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. This is the reason that I started to […]

My Tilt Table Test Experience

After so many years of being sick and knowing that something was very wrong with me, I finally found a doctor that did not dismiss me out of hand. Actually I can thank my GP for referring me to a Neurologist that had no idea of what to do with me but he knew one […]

Dysautonomias,POTS, FIBRO,IST, CMPS and hypothyroid / low adrenal function

Ok, so I have POTS, IST, Fibromyalgia,chronic myofascial pain,hypothyroid, nerve damage which is causing the POTS and IST. All of that means my autonomic nervous system is’t working right. When I stand up my heart races and my blood pressure rises then drops so sometimes I drop with it. I don’t pass out because i […]

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 […]

The flu sucks!

I haven’t actually had a flu for years so I should be grateful I guess. I have had the flu for a week. My throat hurts something awful. Swallowing is really painful. I always ache all over so thats no new but its still not fun. My leg pain is gone but i cant talk […]

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

never fails. The weather is gorgeous. I have waited all winter for this. But since it has been so warm my ability to be upright has gone way down. I sat outside waiting for someone for 20 minutes yesterday and have been nauseous and feeling faint ever since. If I stand up I start to […]
