hi
for ur case boswellia and aswagandha are the 2 best drugs that reduces inflamation there by reducing pain
aswagandha also reduces exhaution
boswella reduces immune cells that promote inflammation and also increase the number of immune cells that inhibits inflammation
yogaraja guggulu, kaisora guggulu etc., ayurvedic preparations very helpful

I m FtM transgender, and have lost menstrual periods due to naturally high levels of testosterone from the age 16+. In about 12 hours from now, I have an abdominal ( Possibly transvaginal ) ultrasound, I know the focus is my pelvis, reproductive organs. I m confused by the requirements of the prep instructions. Fasting prep - you may have a lowfat meal the night before the exam, but nothing by mouth after midnight, except for a sip of water to take with medications. Exceptions for diabetic patients or special nutritional requirements. *If patient is 1 year old or younger, nothing to eat or drink for 4 hours before exam. If necessary, will allow water or clear juices up to 2 hours before exam, but NOT milk. Bring bottle to feed infants during or after exams.* *If patient is 1 to 4 years old, nothing to eat or drink for 4 hours prior to exam.* *If patient is 5 years or older, nothing to eat or drink for 6 hours before exam.* **If scheduling for PD Cath surgical planning, there is no prep.** I have no idea what they are planning to do to me, but I ve had 3 pelvic ultrasounds (internal and external) and have never had to fast before. The instructions confuse me because it says nothing to eat or drink after midnight, but then it goes on to say that if the patient is 5+ nothing to eat/drink six hours prior to exam.

I have bursitis - left hip. I had a cortisone injection (described by the doc as mega ) 10 days ago which resulted in an ecxascerbation of the pain that I had before the injection. I had another mega injection 3 days ago. The bursitis pain has relieved except for minor aching of my upper thigh and soreness at the injection site. What I am questioning is the flu-like symptoms I have had since the injection 3 days ago.....loss of appetite, nausea, sleepiness, general malaise. Is this a side-effect of cortisone injections in close proximity?.

Hello, I am from Canada and suffer chronic pain and fibromyalgia for 25 years. I am on methadone as one treatment and it has been recently altered here. Methadose solution for pain 10mg/ml Methadone HCI 10 mg/ml. Dose, drink 1.5ml four times daily. I can not take this as I said it has been changed. Now the government has made it sugar based cherry flavored, gag reflux crap. I have tried to wean my self off but have experienced anger, smashing plates, cried out for doctor assisted suicide as the pain and withdrawal of this drug is making me crazy. I am on subcutaneous lidocaine infusions weekly, nerve blocks in neck and shoulders, cortisone injections in both hips for bursitis and nerve blocks in lower back, L4,L5. I suffer with herniated, degenerative discs, c5,c6 too. I have osteoporosis, parathesia, IBS, awaiting surgery for bladder prolapse, endometriosis which required hysterectomy and oophorectomy and numerous laporoscopies leaving me with adhesions which are a constant cause of further pain. I am a chronic pain disease sufferer and to the world I look great...haha! I initially started to write to you only for advise on taking myself off methadone but here I went on and on. The list is long and I see many doctors and pain specialists however my quality of life is nil and I am only 55 years young. I can not seem to find answers, help or hope other than being prescribed opiates, methadone which has been changed to suit the government not the patients needs and numerous medications that make me worse. I am on a roller coaster of hell and pain and now I am withdrawing off this horrible new recipe of methadone as I throw up trying to take it. Why change something that was easy to take to this horrible sugar based cherry cough medicine taste that burns to the pit of my stomach whereby I need gravol settle? I am frustrated, in pain and have talked to nurse on line tonight...she told me to go to the hospital...LOL! Right! I can not live in this pain...my doctor retired, great guy...now I have a woman who has nine kids and never can catch up or give a you know what about her patients. I give up! This is only the tip of the ice berg...you have now idea many health issues I have! I have to leave my city to go for help to Vancouver, thank God for HOPE AIR! They took me to the last appointment with my Neurosurgeon and he has ordered another MRI, will be seeing me after or before if I can not take the pain! I am a mess...What happened to good doctors??? How did we get FIBROMYALGIA??? I have a clue...DDT spraying all over the playground I grew up in...playground was a gas line and electric power field...what do you think of that? Five out of six women who played there as children were not able to conceive!!! Gee, I wonder! I am on a quest to find answers and thought perhaps I would start here...I doubt I will get an answer though...Great! Off to cyber space this goes...I am from Canada and You are in the States! Nice! I was on a Canadian site...how all of a sudden does it go here and now I need to pay! Well, thanks for nothing....I will proceed elsewhere because I will find an answer and from you...obviously not!

If Naproxen has damaged my kidneys and Tylenol is bad for my liver what type of pain meds are available for me? I am said to have several chronic conditions which Docs seem to think or they claim once thought were in people s heads, which I don t understand, but I m only a teacher with a BS and a MS who suffers from spinal degeneration, narrowing of the spine, bulges at L1 and L2 and recently L4 and L5 up until Oct. 2013 when an attempt was made to correct these imaginary disc bulges. I suffer daily sinus headaches docs say they see something in there but there s nothing they can do about it. I have bursitis they tell me, which at times calls for a long needle to be jabbed into my hip and, there s nothing imaginary about that. They tell me I have Gerd so I imagine that s that burning sensation that come up in my chest and throat when I miss taking my omeprazole. I wonder if something like that could have led to my moms and her only sister s esophageal cancer? Or it could be the hiatal hernia or the unspecified intestinal disease they told me I have. You know I thought after that surgery while I was in rehab I was feeling better then I had in years and then I went home. The very next day I was back in the emergency room oh I forgot before I left the rehab a sore started to form at the surgical site and it began to bleed a little but no one was alarmed, especially not me I had had at least 8 abdominal surgeries before, one of them had to ripped back open due to infection (my C-section) the other burst back open when I was made to get up and too soon I thought, after my hysterectomy when I became dizzy and fell while walking down the hospital hallway. This was different this was something I had never heard of and probably would not have if I had died you see doc the people in the emergency room sent me home with a tube of cream, never contacted my surgeon it was her day off never advised a follow-up with her, oh I guess they knew I would not need one. But because I had home health care they took me to their hospital and a week later from the doctor s office I was rushed into surgery stat still didn t know what was wrong and two operations later after efforts to get my blood pressure stabilized I was then told I had contracted something called MRSA. I was on antibiotics for months and sick as hell for months one infection in the body after another in various places I won t name. Finally I was treated for a terrible bronchitis that would only go away with a protocol of prednisone and antibiotics used to treat pneumonia. So back to my original what type of pain meds are safe for me? Thank you in advance if you can answer my question and God bless.
