Last year I was diagnosed with AIDS, not HIV. Just last week my doctor told me that my AIDS turned back into HIV. At this rate my doctor tells me my HIV will go away completely and I'll have perfect health. Don't get me wrong I'm thankful and everything, but what the heck is happening to me? How did I beat AIDS and how come my HIV is going away? Please help me figure this mystery out.
I am 12 years post total hysterectomy. I used essential oils to help balance my hormones prior to going on hormone therapy 9 weeks ago which I am using the pellets in my hip and take extra progesterone at night because my second set of labs said I needed more. I should have done this years ago but when it happens slowly you start to have a new normal and don't realize how bad you get until one day you can't take it anymore. Now I'm wigging out with all these symptoms and want to know if I just need to continue through this because they will go away when my hormones level out. My hormone levels were almost 0, not exaggerating. Estrogen, progesterone, testosterone and thyroid. We started treating the thyroid first thinking it was the one that created all my sleep problems and more but now I'm reading that when your progesterone is low your estrogen tries to balance out and those effect your thyroid. It's all connected. I'm also wondering if going to a specialist verses my regular doctor would be smart because they might have known all of this in the first place and might save me troubles down the road. It's just all so expensive.
Hi, I'm a 25 year old student and I have recently been diagnosed with ADHD (previously ADD) for which I'm on Methylphenidate. I also have chronic dandruff, which has between exaggerated due to my ADHD as I scratch it more than a non-ADDer would. The repeated scratching has lead to a condition called as Lichen Simplex Chronicus, in which repeated trauma of scratching causes flakes which cause further discomfort and scratching, blackening, and thickening of skin. I'm facing exams and the whole thing causes lot of distress for me. I also had acne, which have been cured now, but they reflect my overall oily skin type. Also, I have dust allery and DNS which hause frequent sneezing, post nasal drip and chronic pharyngitis. I had a bad childhood as my parents, both ADDers, had lot of conflicts and I was victimised a lot being the youngest and most vulnerable of the family. My best friend who was the only person i could talk to died in 2013 and i cant hace a single day i didnt miss her, I'm currently single, very lonely, worried and scared. Please help me, even if not medically, sharing your own coping mechanisms with me here will help me a lot. Love, Tyler.

I've been taking Rebif for three years now and I noticed that I only started having acne from three years. Exactly after I went back from the US where I started taking Rebif. At first, I thought that things like chocolate for example gave me acne but that didn't happen except after I started taking Rebif. For the past three or four months from now, I began controling it a lot better, but this week my acne started getting out of hand again. I'm glad that I found people like me who take Rebif and have acne so I would like to hear your opinion and possibly your advice if possible. Thank You :D
I am 59 years old and was prescribed Humera 3 months ago for very bad ulcerative colitis. After tapering off Prednisone, I have since developed acne! Something that I have not had to deal with since my twenties! Has anyone else had this experience and found a way to successfully end the acne?
