Not Really ; Yes: As embodied souls connected to complex mind operating a complex;fragile brain controlling a complex;fragile body with literally millions of orders/second, the issues are fantastically complex ; exams are inherently quite limited to a few factors; mostly emphasizing a few issues of body mechanic ; severe abnormality. Best search for a physician worthy of your trust who will focus on problem solving. ...Read more

Yes: You are smart to shun narcotics. They are not the answer! fibromyalgia is very general diagnosis for vague symptoms for which we don't have a cause. In my experience, most fibromyalgia patients benefit from simple changes like an anti inflammatory diet, stress relief techniques like meditation, and regular exercise. Heavy duty drugs are a very poor solution here! ...Read more

Memory foam matress that adjust to our body contour and will give a comfartable sleep without causing body pain. Is this true?

Memory foam matress that adjust to our body contour and will give a comfartable sleep without causing body pain. Is this true?

Possibly.: I don't have a memory foam mattress but I do have a thick memory foam mattress topper. It does adjust to my body's contours. It is very helpful for joint pain. However, i would like to advise you that there can be significant differences in the quality of the memory foam - i bought one (very expensive) topper that was so hard that i got rid of it. So, try it out - don't buy sight unseen. ...Read more

Why do some people get flu like symptoms when quitting zoloft (sertraline)? What is happend to the body when the flu symptoms comes? Is it the body who works hard?

Why do some people get flu like symptoms when quitting zoloft (sertraline)? What is happend to the body when the flu symptoms comes? Is it the body who works hard?

Slower taper easier: "Flu" complaints are not uncommon. It depends on how quickly the dose is tapered. It is much more likely if the medication is stopped all at once. The timing of these symptoms depends on the half life of the medication.Short acting meds like paxil, (paroxetine) zoloft etc have more issues than long acting meds such as prozac.

Cold urticaria: This is not too uncommon. Avoidance of exposure is the best approach. I don't understand why all antihistamines make your jittery without a decongestant. Suggest you try different types of just antihistamine to see which one works for you. Double the dose if necessary for the one tolerated. See allergist perhaps? No immersion in cold water-it may kill you. ...Read more
