  • The dangers off fluoridation
    I live in an area where the water has been fluoridated for approximately 55 years and have been treated for an underactive thyroid since 1978. I have also suffered from urge incontinence since 1967 and for 4 years have also had the symptoms of skeletal fluorosis although I have not been able to get the tests to confirm this. About 2 years ago I read about the dangers of fluoride and stopped using the tap water for drinking and cooking but still had to use it for bathing and still swam in the local pool. Also I have always drunk about 3 pints of tea a day. Recently it was found that there might be a problem with my kidneys so I stopped drinking tea and swimming. I had been going to the toilet 16/17 times a day but after about 5 weeks this was down to 7/8 times and the urgency was gone. Also I was given a follow up kidney function test after 6 weeks and that was normal. A few weeks later I was shopping in an area where the water is not fluoridated and risked having tea in a cafe there and the irritable bladder symptoms came back almost immediately and lasted for several weeks.
  • Ibuprofen and esophageal stricture
    After taking relatively high-doses of ibuprofen for many years, I developed an esophageal pain when swallowing large pills and experienced two unexplained events of esophageal spasm. A barium esophagram showed a stricture near the lower sphincter with a pencil-sized opening. Confirmed benign with a endoscopy and biopsy, it showed no gastric or duodenal ulcers from the ibuprofen, the stricture was expanded and I experience no discomfort now.
    I believe scarring of the esophagus was the result of taking ibuprofen often during the night with only a sip of water and then going back to bed. The ibuprofen dissolved in the water and by lying down immediately, the concentrated solution did not pass into my stomach but stayed in and irritated the lower esophagus for the rest of the night.
    To avoid future occurrences, the simple solution is to take ibuprofen with a full glass of water and avoid lying down for the next 30 minutes or so.
  • Muscle weakness from methotrexate
    I'm 61 and have taken methotrexate for 25 yrs. I've always done well with my blood results etc. Lately I've been having problems pushing a grocery cart. My arm muscles are so weak!
  • Arm pain on both sides from xarelto and levaquin
    Extreme pain in upper arms and forearms. Unable to lift anything of substance.
  • Sublingual b12 & insomnia
    Approx 8 months ago I began taking 500 mg sublingual B12 in the am. I actually feel more energized (real or imagined?) but, I have also begun experiencing severe insomnia. I go to sleep easily but get up around 3 times a night. This interrupted sleep is a killer. Any suggestions will be appreciated

    Methionine/Inositol/Choline/Cyanocobalamin/Pyridozine HCL 25/50/50/1/50mg per 1ml 30mL MDV. These Ingredients could not be found in the category above.

  • Thyroid blood work 639 now on synthetic thyroid medication but blood pressure is dropping lower as time is passing. I have severe headaches and migraines. My lower right back is hurting bad. Hydrocodone edges not even help the pain. They saw my thyroid enlarged in cat scan . I am going for a sonogram tomorrow. I am so fatigued. It is hard to get out of bed, but I force myself. The doctor primary keeps adjusting medications. I have an appointment with an endocrinologist but not until mid November. Getting more discouraged as time goes by. Don't know what to do.
