Low

Saturday morning and as P says I should be happy the weekend ( and thus himself) are here but feel pretty down.

Woke with a stye to pile on top of hayfever swollen eyes, lush, not...

Still off the booze though feel the ghost of temptation today. Will fight.

Interesting stuff on this board... which of my health care professionals are in the dark ages blaming it all on my mind and which , if any believe I have pain, tiredness, etc, etc, etc, etc ad infinitum?


HealthBoards - Anyone with severe back pain & breathing problems?: "Fibro-(FMS) characterized by pain amplification, musculoskeletal discomfort and systemic symptoms. It is a central nervous system sensitization. It may also be inherited, note the words, may be. It is NOT a musculoskeletal disorder, not progressive, not chronic myofascial pain, nor does mental illness have anything to do with it (although some professionals argue strongly that it does-they live in the fibro dark ages). Clinical evidence as old as 1995 shows that FMS represents a distinct rheumatic disorder and should not be regarded as a somatic illness secondary to psychiatric disorder. (Dunne, F. J. and C. A. Dunne, 1995)

Chronic Myofascial Pain (CMP)-Likely the most common cause of musculoskeletal pain in medical practice. Fascia (with the first syllable pronounced like the 'a' in fashion) is the sticky white film you see when skinning chicken you purchase at the store to eat) It gives shape to and supports all your body's musculature and is three-dimensional, holding in place all your organs and skeleton, too. Your muscles are all permeated with their own fascial network too. Kinda complex to explain."

Hi Jen,

As a result of reading your blog "Low", I think you will discover my directory on alzheimers disease symptoms and other Alzheimers studies to be useful.

Why not submit your own articles on Alzheimers to my free directory ... sharing your information will help others and you also get the benefit of recognition and a valuable backlink to your own site. If convenient, come and take a look at my articles on alzheimers disease now!

Best Regards
Emily

Hi Gambling Housewife,
Nice site/blog - Low! I had to take a second look just to be sure if the focus I was looking for - chronic inflammation, relates to the site I saw on http://www.mymangosteen.com/jvcnetwork. I'm just doing some research on sites like http://www.mymangosteen.com/jvcnetwork, with other keywords like chronic inflammation but yours still intrigued me.

When you get a chance check out that site! It sure got my attention!
