  • Cold sore won't go away...
    First cold sore experience. Thought it was a pimple and squeezed it. Swelled up, blistered, spread below my nose, about 4 or 5 bumps, scab fell off and remained pink and swollen and didn't go away or blistered. gone thru 2 bottles of tea tree oil. finally put bleach on it and that made it burn and looked like it was going to blister yesterday but it didn't and still swollen and tight feeling. Got abreeva and putting it on there and gonna finish the acyclovir. Am I going thru the norm? It's been almost a month I have been dealing with this and extremely frusterated. What can I do to make it go away?

  • Ranexa and erectile dysfunction
    I have experienced moderate ED with taking multiple heart and NO meds. This has been manageable and acceptable. Cardiologist added Ranexa (Ranalozine) 3 weeks ago and I am now experiencing complete erectile and ejaculatory failure.
  • My experience with lyme
    My final semester at college-

    Woke up to extreme inflammation in what was determined to be a portion of my trapezius on the left side length of my next. It was accompanied by severely swollen lymph nodes throughout my entire body. I went about my day with what to me was seemingly a bad neck cramp and oncoming cold. In the afternoon I decided to participate in Track practice and what occurred after I am unsure about in terms of its relation to me performing physically or an autoimmune response against my peripheral nervous system. The next morning I woke up the left side of my trapezius was completely dysfunctional from its attachment to my cranium all the way down to the mid point of my back. It was accompanied by inflammation and sore pain at the point where the next connects to the shoulder girdle. Over the course of the next 8 months I went undiagnosed with Lyme, having seen neurologists and orthopedics in an attempt to find a solution. Reflecting on the first three months, I experienced significant effects on my emotional stability and cognitive capability. I would have severe mood swings--rage, depression, excitement-- and I would have difficulty with memory and train of thought- all of which can be confirmed by multitude of classmates. By the 8 month mark I had began to feel mild joint pain, particularly in areas I had formerly injured in athletic activity (ankles, lower back). At this point, my accessory nerve had not regenerated in terms of the portion affecting my trapezius, didn't regain any lost muscle function. I saw my physician, who discovered the Lyme infection. I took doxycycline over the next 3 months and saw significant improvement in my trapezius, which was accompanied by a decrease in lymph node size, as proven by comparison of MRIs. My fatigue dissipated and my moods/cognition returned to normal. I've regained about 70% of the function I formerly had with my trapezius (as compared to 0% prior to treatment). I wanted to write this because I have yet to see a similar case, understand the ambiguity of Lyme disease and the array of conditions it causes.
  • Anyone else experiencing these rare & unbearable side effects from shingles treatment?
    The very day I start treatment I can't stop needing to urinate, can't sleep, and get very shaky and/or have tremors. My BUN/Creatinine levels only become abnormal immediately after I start taking the medication. Nothing helps the insomnia or restlessness.

    I've had an active Shingles infection for over a year (maybe much longer). I was born infected to Chicken Pox (which included related birth defects such as Bell's Palsy) along with a severe defect in a protein gene that makes up my primary immune system. Is anyone else experiencing this???????????????????????? If so please get in touch with me. Thank you.
  • Shingles is a terrible experience
    Wednesday: broke out under arm and on left back. Severe Sharp stabbing pin under arm and thru left breast. Had just had a small cancer removed from right ear and pain was similar, so I thought it might be a cancer so
    Friday: went to doctor was told it was Shingles was given Acyclovir. Told to us Calamine lotion on the lesions. Calamine did nothing for the itching. Went on Internet and read everything about Shingles. Started using Coconut Oil.
    Saturday: pain was terrible. Applied the coconut oil.
    Sunday: Went to Health Food Store and purchased Licorice Tincture, Olive Leaf Tincture, l-Lysine, Colloidal Silver gel and Vitamin B-12 sub-lingual tablets. The Licorice made it feel better for a little bit. Colloidal Silver helped. The Olive Leaf Tincture really worked with the colloidal Silver. Actually gave the most relief. My husband had knee surgery 3 years ago and had been given a circulating ice water machine. Several sites had recommended using a cold cloth on the lesions, so I put the circulating ice water blanket on my back. It really gave me relief. For about 3 days, it circulated on my back, while using the Olive Leaf and Silver.
    Wednesday, it's been 7 days and my lesions have scabs on them and are getting less red every day.
    Something else that I have done is stand in the shower and let hot water run on my back. This has been very soothing.
    Thursday: Was reading about Bicarbonate of Soda curing cancer and knowing that this would make the body alkaline, and nothing lives in an alkaline environment, I started drinking water with soda in it. Will be curious to see if it attacks the Shingles. One of the things recommended was using Soda on the Shingles, so attacking it from the inside should work better.
  • Symptons from taking doxycyclin
    I recently went in for a physical, everything was normal except my Creatinine levels. I had severe symptoms from burning hands/knuckles to feeling very tingly like cold needles. Also, burned very easily from sun even with 50 sun screen applied. Should I be worried about the Creatinine levels be abnormally high?
