? GMO's: I'm not sure why you're reacting this way as most people don't. You're probably sensitive to one or more of the many ingredients. Both of these contain corn, canola oil and soy from gmo sources ; i believe eating gmo's is unwise and hazardous. No matter the cause, if you get pain after these i would not use them. You can find organic protein powders at health food stores. See http://bit.Ly/19xax7e. ...Read more

Musculoskel v ctx: This could be due to stretching of the musculoskeletal ligaments of the pelvis, or you could be having contractions or cramping. Be sure to discuss this with your doctor and tell him/her exactly where the pain is, how long it lasts for, is it cyclic or constant. Until you see doctor, no sex. ...Read more

Your : Your case presents a few dilemmas. Gbs is a group of autoimmune diseases targeted at the peripheral nerves and causing acute progressive weakness, usually an ascending paralysis. The history usually entails the following: •upper respiratory or diarrheal disease within previous 1–3 weeks in 50–70%: c. Jejuni (~40%), cytomegalovirus (13%), epstein-barr virus (10%), mycoplasma pneumoniae (5%), or hiv •dysesthesias (painful tingling), paresthesias (tingling) of the feet and hands are usually the earliest symptoms. •pain is common- especially back pain which can radiate to the legs and not usually associated with myalgias (muscle pain). •gait disorder common in all age groups- this is the most common presentation in children •neck muscle weakness, dysphagia, and dysarthria are predictors of respiratory failure. The physical exam frequently reveals the following: •acute, symmetric, and usually ascending weakness of limbs within days of dysesthesias •areflexia (no reflexes) or hyporeflexia( reduced reflexes) and muscle weakness, decreased position and vibratory sensation •respiratory muscle paralysis 30% if untreated •cranial nerve involvement <50%; usually facial weakness, 10–20% ophthalmoparesis (loss of eye movement) •dysautonomia (abnormal autonomic nervous system responses) (50%): labile blood pressure, arrhythmias, ileus (paralysis of bowel function), urinary retention; •miller-fisher variant: ophthalmoplegia, ataxia, areflexia important lab tests •csf: elevated protein and normal white blood cells (wbcs; albuminocytologic dissociation) are characteristic with a normal opening pressure. •emg: this shows a pattern of demyelination with prolonged latencies and a reduced motor compound action potential. The medications usually used are one or more of the following: •immune globulin (ivig) •plasmapheresis or plasma exchange most patients reach the plateau phase within 3 weeks of admission, and muscle strength is expected to improve. The prognosis is: •complete recovery: 50% •some residual disability: 45% •severe permanent disability: 5% hence, the dilemma as you report no improvement and in fact worsening. Furthermore, a lesion within the spinal cord (myelopathy) can present with similar symptoms as the ones you provide. A few pertinent questions to help discern the cause would include whether you have had a lumbar puncture and EMG and what did these results show? I hope this answers your questions. Good luck and well wishes. ...Read more

I am having a tingling, painful, burning sensation on the skin epidermis of my right upper stomach. Why is this happening & what is the cure for this?

Burning sensation: A detailed history and complete physical examination may help your physician in establishing a correct diagnosis and adequate treatment for your condition. I have seen similar presentations in patients with early shingles, transverse myelitis in multiple sclerosis and pinched nerves in the thoracic spine. Please contact your physician for evaluation. Hope you feel well soon. ...Read more
