    daughter severe constipation

    My daughter is 20 and has always had constipation. She recently told me she goes maybe 1 or 2 times a month. She eats really healthy and drinks on average 80 ounces of fluids a day. She eats lots of fruit and fiber. Her dr. prescribed Linzess and it did not work. He then asked her to drink magnesium citrate and she drank it and after 6 hours only went a little bit and is really bloated. She has to drink another bottle tomorrow if it doesn't work. Am I being crazy at thinking there is a serious....
  • Just an introduction

    I am interested in meeting other women, possibly my age or close, 65, but mostly want to talk about my health issues. Today I am starting on 2 medications and 1 supplement of Vit. D3. I hate taking pills because many seem to give me worse side-effects than whatever is bothering me. But I've felt so tired lately I finally saw my doctor, and after an upper GI, then blood tests (full workup I think it was called) I now start Lipitor for high cholestrol, and Synthroid for under-active thyroid. I....

    Do I still need these EVERY year?

    AT my last GYN visit, my doctor said since I had never had an "abnormal" Pap smear, was post-menopausal, monogamous for 20+ years and human papilloma virus negative, I only needed a Pap smear every 3 years. I was thinking I NEVER need another one. Same with a mammogram; have never had an abnormality BUT have very dense breast tissue and the GYN DID suggest the next time I have one, to do it via MRI instead. My insurance won't cover this; when I get to a certain age I'm positive....
  • Hyponatremia now hypo-osmolality?! This is NUTS!

    AGAIN with this BS? Now my NEW doctor has told my insurance company I am both hyponatremic AND hypo-osmalalic! I have been through my health records from all providers since 2007; the last time I had ANY osmolality test run was in June of that year. Now, without drawing any blood or collecting any urine, the doctor just DECIDES that because I had an isolated instance of low blood sodium, my osmolality MUST be low? Plus she wants to stop my beta blocker of 8 years and replace it with a calcium channel....

    birth control pill and ovulation

    I have been taking a birth control pill for years. Always the same kind, just different generic name. I'm normally pretty good about taking it within a 3 hr window. But I'm curious to know how common it is to ovulate on the pill. I know you are not suppose to, but I often get one sided cramps in between my periods and don't know why. I go to the gyno annually and whenever I have an exam done, she never mentions anything about cysts or anything on my ovaries. I feel like what I am experiencing....
