  1. Jen see if your doctor can scribe you evoxac for your sjogren's and see if that helps some. That is what I take and it helps. Sam
  2. Rhuematologist the VA should have one.
  3. I have rice bags that I use. they work good too.
  4. Shelley thanks for the link it was really gross looking at some of those pictures. I will definitely say something to my dentist too. Thanks, Sam
  5. Mine is that way too I had noticed it last year. Really don't think its anything. Something you may want to bring up when you see the dentist to make sure though. Sam
  6. I was wondering if you can get ahold of the BVR services for your state and let them do the talking.
  7. John I can use my hands but they do hurt all the time. To look at me you wouldn't know I have anything wrong. I guess that doesn't help me any. I haven't heard anything from my lawyer yet hopeful soon and get it going again. Take care, sam
  8. Lisa, good luck with the Cialis, glad you got it approved. keep us updated, Sam
  9. I have been trying since 2003 to get SSD. I do have a attorney and I contacted my state reps and nothing... I am so tired of it all. What gets me is that they will give it to alcoholics and drug addicts. I am going to appeal and maybe look for another lawyer not sure yet. Sam
  10. I was denied for social security disability. I received the letter yesterday. So that means going back to the drawing board. But I am so tired and starting to think I don't deserve getting SSD. They told me I can still work as a cashier in a store. I don't think they read my medical file. Well all you have a great Day!! Take care, Sam
  11. I too have pain in my sleep I also take Lyrica for it and also Prozac seems to help it too. If I don't take my medications I hurt all night. At least I can get a good night sleep every other night. You might want to mention this to your doctor. I'm not saying that my pain is gone completely by taking the medications at night, but it does help some. Sam
  12. Lisa, wow that had to be awful, I hope it doesn't come back again. I have never heard of such a thing. I am glad your daughter wasn't hurt more than she was. I remember doing that too when I was in school. That hurt.. Well take care and keep us updated. sam
  13. Roger tell them to keep bugging the insurance company she should be able to get it. I was denied a med but when the doctor did the appeal I got it. So good luck to your niece. I hope she will get some relief soon. Sam
  14. That is awesome!!! We have something like that here in the US if you make too much money you don't qualify. But if you are on disability or food stamps and on welfare you can get help. But if your in limbo like I am you can't get help. Sam
  15. The Ohio Bureau of Disbility Determination. She had called to get more information on my past jobs. Wanting to know if I had to stoop kneel and lift anything or how long I had to sit. etc. She is going to give this to the doctors and have them review and I should hear something soon. So please hope I get on disability this has been going on since 2003. Sam
  16. Christy thanks I will check that out I was wonderingif it could be fromthat but wasn't sure. I have a few things I need to discuss with my doctor. Thanks again. Sam
  17. Someone mentioned elbows, mine feels like electricity is going through them if they get touched. Has anyone had this? I am talking to my doctor about both.
  18. Thanks Craig will have to check it out. Sam
  19. Well I was wondering if any of you experience hand problems at night time. Recently my hands are going to sleep at night them sometimes if they are clenched I can't get them to open up. Also my palm on left hand hurts down to my wrist. It bothers me sometimes when I type too. So I know I must tell my rheumatologist I dont see him until Dec. 18th, I guess I could email him. Well I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced that. Sam

My husband and I have been talking about making eye appoinments for the both of us. I'm just afriad what they are going to say but I must suck it up and go. Sam
  21. Peggy, I'm glad that your going to try going back on the IVIG. You mentioned that it had helped before. Good luck and I'm sorry to hear that you got some bad news. Take care, Sam
  22. Ann, I can't believe that happen to you. I am sorry your in so much pain. I couldn't even imagine. I just watch comdies when I need to. as for reading I really can't help you in that. Hopefully some one will soon, take care and try to rest as much as psossible. Sam
