Default What cha dealing with?

Seems like a lot of us are dealing with health stuff and are willing to share. Mostly injuries, but I deal with an ulcer and gall bladder stuff. I can control both with diet but Independence day here in the states kinda did me in. I'm out of commission for a bit, and it's heath food for me (and no alcohol) for the foreseeable future. Thing is, I feel great as long as I eat right. And I like skating and bicycling more than rich food, so I'm wiling to sacrifice.

Our town celebrated on the 3rd this year. It' cheaper to get certified fireworks-shooter-off-ers on a day other than the fouth.

Unsure about the posting times. Certainly not GMT, perhaps the server is not set to a time server. Forum admins?

Time stamps go off every now and again. There was a database error yesterday, might have had something to do with it.

I deal with thyroiditis Hashimoto's disease. Low thyroid output that wants to make me fat and lethargic. I got it under control with NDT meds, and my weight has about normalized again. Got about 10lbs to go.

I have to skate daily. If I don't my weight spikes drastically. Over the two months here in OKC that we had ice and snow last february, I gained 40 lbs.

Can't have gluten. I'm a strict vegetarian/organic nut. Locally sourced milk and eggs are my protein. Diet is king, exercise is queen, and the hormones are your court jester!

Wondering, we used a dentist for 25 years that just kept cleaning our teeth, he sold and the new dentist suggested we go see a periodontist, that guy wanted to do 1/4 of the mouth at a time, cut the gums scrape the teeth, let it heal for 2 months and do another section, we were aghast, found a periolase place nearby, they just peeled the gums back and went to town, did 1/2 the mouth and a week or two later the other half, what a pleasure, two months later, wow, no more ulcer, no more stomach cramps, so...how are your teeth, I thought mine were great, (now I look at the teeth of the people in the town with the damned dentist and I notice most people are toothless)

Default Ulcer update

Off of the Nexium. I'm going to need to renew the prescription. Last time I was in to see the Doc, I felt so well I was seeing about dropping the prescript. But symptoms have returned.

Seems the best thing I can do it is eat less. Much less. I'm not generally a glut or anything, but I have to control the portions. The weight loss helps the ulcer as well as not digesting as much at once.

Still I can feel it in there. Still working on it.

I was for the fist time low on iron when I gave blood. They had to do two checks to get me in, then just barely. Dangerous self-diagnosis (WebMd): The ulcer is leaking the iron. But it takes time to rebuild the iron even after the ulcer is gone. Luckily, I love liver; beef or chicken. And chicken livers are extremly cheap.

Ate some liver got some iron supliments. Symptoms got worse but is getting better now. Strength is very good though. With the 5 lbs weight loss I am able to Shoot the Duck again. Is that 15 to 20 lbs off of my knees ( never knew how they figured that)?

Default Ulcer symptom flair up

Obvious sings of bleeding at this point. I have already had the barrium test, so I'm pretty sure it's just an ulcer. I'm going to get the standard "I'm male and getting older" tests to make double sure.

I have anemia that I'm taking a suppliment for. A little pain but not too much. But as for lethargy and weakness I haven't had yet, thankfully. I'm still quite active.

Going to double my diet efforts to get it back under control. If that doesn't work, it's back to the doc.

rewording previous message ---there's bacon cooked and ready and I can't eat it.

You don't have to floss all of your teeth, just the ones you want to keep.

Topic at hand: I have a bulged disk (I think from a skating injury about 20 years ago) that ended up in creating pain and numbness from my left shoulder through my to my pinkie finger. Chiropractic adjustments have helped along with losing some weight.

I get acid reflux, Prilosec (Omeprazole Magnesium) every other day keeps it at bay. If I take it every day I get indigestion, as though I don't have enough stomach acid. It seems different foods set it off for different people. For me it's garlic more than anything else, followed by Nutrigrain Cereal Bars (weird, huh?) If I need immediate relief Sour Patch Kids instantly kick back the acid for about 5 minutes at a time. I can string a few together over 20 minutes or 1/2 an hour to give the Prilosec time to kick in. I keep some in the car for such times.

My eyes are starting to have issues focusing on close things and I get headaches from staring at a computer all day and start getting tunnel vision after a few hours, low magnification reading glasses are working well for me.

Skating related: I have flat arches, most stock boots hurt. A lot.

Yes, all that. Red Wine, even half a glass, killer. I originally did it for heart smart. But can't tolerate it.

I always wear arch supoorts now. As a kid I hated shoes, couldn't wait to go al summer without. Now it's lace tight and put in your arch support. Unless I have my sketchers on. My skates seem to have good suport though.

I can do all that food if I'm on schedule with my Prilosec, but if I'm a day off it'll hit me hard. Red wine will do it a bit, as will most alcohols, but if I'm on schedule (or take one before, just in case) I'm usually fine.

Arch wise, I'm the opposite. I can't stand walking without shoes for any length of time. Did it a while ago and my arches were all sore for the next couple days.

Arthritis, inflammation, in the knees, back and shoulder. General weakness and poor recovery time.

See the Nitric Oxide thread.
