  8. I Think I Have Problem

    Sweet, I think you need to call the doctor and let him know what is going on. I agree with Shelley. Sam
  9. It feels like someone is taking a medal instrument and stabbing them. I haven't felt that in a long time. the last time was when I had an ulcer on my left index finget when I was 21 years old. But I dont have an ulcer. My left hand fingers hurt more than my right. but it really hurts when I am laying down and sleeping I'm not laying on them or have them clenched. I also notice that they are bending more. Can people who have CREast have that? Sam
  10. Mary, thanks for you input. Yes I see my rheumatologist who specilizes in Scleroderma. As you mentioned before about some meds that we can't take because of gastro problems. I am one of those people. My gastro doctor only wants me to take tylenol for the pain. I have ulcerative colits and hiatal hernia plus Barrett's. So most of the time I just deal with the pain. Sam
  11. Thanks Craig. That is interesting. Sam
  12. Could This Be Raynaud's?

    Yep it sounds like raynuad's. Don't stick your hand in cold water again. OUch!! Well we all agree on that dont we. Well the best thing for you is to let the doctor know. Take care and keep those hands warm Sam
  13. Steve Uk

  14. Please Let It Be Strep Throat....

    Why would you hope for strep? And what is going for you to say that? Maybe you need to call the doctor today!!! Sam
  15. Just remember you will need someone to drive you home. I had slept all that day and night last night. I did get up and eat some chicken noodle soup and a half of a sandwich then I had gone back to bed. Howie told me I should of waited for him to come to fix something but I told him I was hungry and I didn't want to wait. But it was a good thing I didn't try to fix something else I would of had problems. I had more of a problem this past time then the times before. Oh well it's over with and now I will have to wait for the results. I have to call next week for them. Take care everyone Sam
  16. Shelley, thanks I kinda thought it could happen,I read so much that I often forget. I did email my rheumatologist to let him know. See what the next step is. Thanks again, Sam
  17. Awhile back someone posted information about reading/interpreting PFT results (may have been on the old board). I was wondering if you could repost that information here. I would greatly appreciate it. Sam
  18. Thank you!!! I knew it could be somewhere I tried looking for it as well I only found about the speriometer or something like that. Sam
  19. I have back pain and it is constant. I notice that latley I can't sit for long periods of time and I have to go lay down to make it feel better but it really doesn't feel better. I did go see my chiro last Thursday. It helped some. I need to see him again. Sam
  20. Katherine when in doubt go. Sam
  21. Helps For Daily Tasks

    Here is some other things you can do to help you out at home. 1. Use a pencil tip to dial the phone number that are needed. 2. You can have someone nail a finger nail clipper to a board that way you can use the palm of your hand to cut your nails. 3. for lamps that is hard to turn on put a clothes pin on the switch so it will be easier to turn on. 4.loop shoelaces or strips of fabric though your drawer pulls and refrigerator handles to create large soft pull. 5.line your pans with aluminum foil. 6. raised toilet seat 6 inches will make it easier to get on and off. 7. A pair of velcro closures sewn on behind the buttons eliminates the button problem. 8.for your clothes hanging in the closets have the lowered to wear you can reach them. 9. attach key rings to your zipper pulls that are difficult for you. I have more if needed, Sam
  22. Thanks everyone that replied. Yes hopefully the pain will subside soon. I'm calling the chiro again to day to see if I can get in. Take care, Sam
  23. Yes I had my back and hips x ray. I have OA in both and in my back I also have some scoliosis. I only can take certian meds because of the Ulcerative colitis. So I am limited. But thanks everyone. I didn't realize I had two messages go through, I thought one went away into space. Sam
  24. Hey Sweet, hello! I do walk everyday but not alot of walking due to it hurts my lower back and left hip. I know it's from the OA that is bothering my back, plus I slouch and that doesn't help any either. I was just wondering what people do when there back hurts . Sam
  25. Well I was wondering how do you relieve your back pain? I take a bath and soak for awhile, I use a heating pad and have my husband rub it for a bit. I noticed lately that my back hurts when I sit to long. So I have to get up and lay down for a bit to releive the pain. I also take a pain med but it doen't even touch it. I did see my chiro last Thursday and need to see him this week too I think. Well I was just wondering. Sam
