  1. I WON'T take Cipro, and docs won't prescribe it for me, because I got a clostridium difficile colitis infection that took a year to get rid of the last time (and only time) I ever took it. I've found that Macrobid works just fine for me.
  2. I don't tell anyone unless I have reason to. That's not very often. I'm lucky in that my case isn't really severe enough that it causes me many problems (unless I get dehydrated or have to stand too long.)
  3. Not exercise, but I could see how it could happen. I've gotten them from overstimulation and even being angry. Amy
  4. I don't like them, either. I only eat them if they're green, because then they have less flavor. Ugh.
  5. Also, sometimes antidepressants HELP POTS SYMPTOMS. A lot of us take them, even if we haven't had problems with stress/anxiety, because they calm down the sympathetic nervous system, which tends to be out of whack in a lot of us. I get PHYSICALLY sick as a dog when I don't take my Paxil. You're right about not getting off of them, however. I don't see that happening for me anytime soon, unless I find some miracle cure elsewhere. Amy
  6. I'd rather have a Yuengling! That's good beer!
  7. I think this is actually a pretty common occurence. I've never had it happen, but I've heard of it happening to a lot of people.
  8. Ouch! I've only had individual muscles -- usually a calf, foot arch or under my chin if I yawn too big. It sounds awful!
  9. Maybe you're low on potassium? (Sorry -- banana joke.) I got this really bad when I tried to stop my Paxil. Hands and feet both tinging. It's an icky feeling.
  10. I'll come to your pity party! I'll bring pretzels. And punch.
  11. Welcome! Glad you found us, sorry you had the need. Yada, yada. Sounds like you fit in with us! Amy
  12. I can't give you any of that, but I can give you an ehug! ((((firewatcher))))
  13. Great! I've sold two houses, and I know how stressful it can be. I'm so happy for you! Amy
  14. I CAN'T STAND riding in the car. The lurching and turning, especially in stop-and-go driving, make me feel awful. I'm fine if I'm driving. I think then, I know what's coming, so my body isn't surprised by every little movement. Amy
  15. I think I'm the opposite. I had an ovarian cyst rupture, and I thought I was going to die. I think the emergency room literally thought I might die. It took four times to find a pulse, and my hands and feet were starting to go numb. I was fully conscious, though. I don't think they quite knew what to make of me. Amy
  16. I work full time, but it's a total desk job (copywriting and blogging.) I do walk to and from work, however. I'm usually OK upright if I'm moving. Amy
  17. A lot of hospitals offer "Ask a Nurse" hotlines that are staffed by nurses. Would that be an option? Or doctor offices. At least the hours would likely be shorter. It sounds miserable! Amy
  18. That doctor sounds like a moron. Seriously. Amy
  19. Hi Lynn! Nice to "meet" you! I'm glad you found our site (but sorry that it sounds like you fit in.) Welcome to the family! Amy
  20. Very interesting. It would be great if he turned out to be right. Amy
  21. I've felt "too drooly" at times. Annoying! Glad to know I'm not the only one!
  22. I love to slurp on ice cubes -- for the same reason.
  23. I'm always worse at PMS time, too. Digestive and bladder discomfort seem particularly worse. Why, I do not know. I'd guess hormones, but it would just be a guess. Amy
