a couple of weeks ago I sat down with family and had a sunday meal within minutes I was bent over in severe pain,my mind was doing overtime as I lost both parents to cancer and now I'm 53 which is the same age my dad had been diagnosed with stomach cancer.im a worrier.on the Monday I went to my GP who knows everything about my health issues.
I have had Stevens Johnson Syndrome for 30 yrs and run the only support group in Scotland for that,i also have severe arthritis which deems how far I can walk and usually by dinnertime I'm done I can't do much more.
so my GP took blood for testing and I soon felt even more unwell fatigue,headaches,nausia,severe stomach pain,blurry vision and really bad indigestion he rushed the blood tests through I was put on ranitidine 2x a day the pain has been more manageable since ive been on them but the more serious one is I have a underactive thyroid so I'm now on levothyroxine for that for the rest of my life.
I have to admit there isn't a lot of support in Scotland for the likes of me who has so many health issues.One thing I am changing is my food intake,i have decided to get rid of gluten out of my food and going a little more fruit and veg.
so here I am I would love for anyone, anywhere to get intouch write about your lifes health problems,be supportive and get support too talk to me and anyone that needs a shoulder to cry on.be a online friend full of support and understanding.
I'm sorry to hear all of this. I'm from Croatia and doctors are out of knowledge here, too. I only 22 years old boy and I am suffering from urethritis/cystitis/prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome. I have severe urination problems, sexual dysfunction and I cannot sit for 5 minutes because it aggravates my pain. Pain is always present in the abdomen, genitals, penis, anus, buttocks, low back, pelvis and sometimes in upper tighs. It killed my life honestly.
you must feel very limited in your life,i understand living with chronic pain can be draining,family although they are there for you there is only so much they can take of it,thats why I feel its important to be able to reach out to those of us who need support.you are very young to have to cope with this,what can be done in pain management for you?
I think nothing can be done except injections for nerve blocking and surgery as a last resort.
Having pain in your upper thighs, lower back, not being able to sit for long and buttock pain, might be down to having low/deficient vitamin D, not saying it is but once I was on a high safe dose of vitamin D3 all those pains went almost overnight. Maybe some of the other symptoms are related too ?
I don't know what is happening but I will try high doses of vitamin C and D, I ordered them already.
Make sure you take vitamin D3 (I take a safe high dose of 5000iu) a lower dose of 1000iu which I initially took did not work for very long and all pains came back again.
For safe high doses vitamindcouncil.com and to see all the medical conditions and illnesses vitamin D prevents.
I will actually take 100000 iu of vitamin D and 10 grams of vitamin C on a daily basis.
Are you sure you are want to take 100,000iu of vitamin D BaneBane2424 ? Please check you have got the amount of 0's right It is easy to add a few more 0's on.
100,000iu is far too high, anything at 10,000 iu or over daily needs blood testing did you know ?
5000iu of vitamin D3 was all I needed to get rid of all my pains.
Vitamin A is fat soluble and your body cannot get rid of the build up of vitamin D3 the same as it it can with water soluble vitamins like the vitamin B's.
Remember to take vitamin D3 with K2, K2 takes calcium to where it should be in your body and out of where it should not be, to prevent build up of calcium.
Both D3 and K2 should be taken with foods that have fat in them.
Please let me know if taking vitamin D3 helps any of your symptoms BaneBane2424, I do hope you have some relief soon.
If I overdose, at least it would be a heroic way to die. Everything is in God's hands.
