    EMG anyone?

    I saw my fibro doc yesterday and he set me up for an EMG with a neurologist. I'm not expecting anything but the 'normal' results of nearly every other test. Just wondered if any of you have had an EMG that actually showed anything? He seems to think I may have a muscle disorder other than FM.

    Loungers...139 is now open

    On a sad note, our neighbor's daughter was in a horrible wreck yesterday afternoon. She had her two small children with her, ages 3 and 14 months. A semi hit her broadside, killing both her children. No way can I begin to imagine what that family is going through. For all of you who pray, I...

    Suggestion when restarting old posts

    May I make a suggestion for those who restart old posts from years back? It would be helpful for you to state it is an old post. I see people responding to them as though they had just been posted. There is some very good info in them, but I for one don't like to respond to a post when the...

    I just read an article about a man in Berlin, Germany who had both leukemia and AIDS. In 2007 he received a bone marrow transplant from a donor who was immune to AIDS (it states 1% of the Caucasian population is immune...did you know that?). Since then, he has gotten better and now shows...

    Question about the National Fibromyalgia Association..

    Does anyone know anything about this group? I know someone who has donated to them in the past, and tried to contact them for the past two months. She couldn't get through. She then saw on a Facebook blog that they had done some 'terrible' things in the past. What, she wasn't able to find...

    My medical update

    About 4 months ago I was diagnosed with macrocytosis (abnormally large red blood cells). My doc didn't know what to do with me (again) so sent me to a hemotologist/oncologist. I was fairly suprised to find out the possible causes, and want to share them with all of you. 1) Low Vitamin B...

    My latest health issues re: macrocytosis

    I haven't been on the board for awhile...busy with docs again, after being diagnosed with macrocytosis (large red blood cells). It was explained to me that my red blood cells are actually 'eating' themselves, so the new ones are produced larger to fill in the space. It has nothing to do with...

    LOUNGERS Vol 10

    Hey guys, hope everyone's having a good day. Fay, I'm like you, an introvert. Always was. I think that's because I was sick even as a child and it was just easier to not be with others than to always be chosen last 'cause I couldn't keep up! So if you're by yourself, naturally you aren't...
