I have something weird.
    #4630325 - 09/07/05 04:43 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

I had 2 weeks off and during the first week I suddenly got intense pain in my feet.
A few days later I noticed my feet were swollen up a lot. I went to the docter and  they told me it might be related to my heart.
So they gave me some medz to reduce the pain (during this time I could hardly walk).
After taking the medz for a week and a day my feet were still swollen like balloons and hurting like hell.
I took the bike to the docter (yes it was a bad choice) they concluded that it might be fluid in my lungs. It shows itself in my feet, so I had to go for X-rays.
This friday I will go to the docter again and get the results.

I hope it can be fixed, my feet are still swollen and hurting a lot.  :sad:

Update:

I went to a rheumatism clinic and they concluded that I have inflammation in the region of my toes. And I might have rheumatic disease in my heels.
My hands, wrists and knees also feel tired all the time using them is very hard.
I will have to go for photo's again on 28-09-05 for my hands and feet.
And i'll get updated on 11-10-05 on what new things they can tell me.

That's it for now, thanks for the support. :hug:

Update:

It has been confirmed, I have arthritis in my feet.
But I can smoke weed to ease the pain.  :smile:

Anybody else have arthritis/reumatho?

Diets

* Eliminate nightshades. One of the most common diet claims is that eliminating nightshades, which include potatoes, tomatoes, eggplants, and most peppers, relieves arthritis. This diet probably isn't harmful, but there are no studies to support it.
* Alkaline diet. The alkaline diet presumes both OA and RA are caused by too much acid. Among the foods it excludes are sugar, coffee, red meat, most grains, nuts, and citrus fruits. It's meant to be followed for just one month. It may be that people feel better because they lose weight, reducing stress on joints, which eases pain. This diet eliminates most vitamin C sources. There are no studies to support it.
* Dong diet. This restrictive diet relies heavily on vegetables, except tomatoes, and eliminates many of the same foods as the alkaline diet. There's no evidence it affects arthritis.
* Vegetarian diet. Some people report improvement in symptoms, but evidence is mixed. One small study of people with RA showed improvement in four weeks, and follow-up studies of those who stayed on the diet showed continued improvement after one and two years.
* Switching fats. One of the known correlations between food and arthritis is that omega-6 fatty acids increase inflammation, and omega-3 fatty acids reduce it. Limit intake of meat and poultry, and increase your intake of cold-water fish, such as sardines, mackerel, trout, and salmon. For salad dressings and cooking, substitute olive, canola, and flaxseed oils for corn, safflower, and sunflower oils.
* Gin-soaked raisins. Lots of people claim it works, but experts say there's no evidence. Grapes and raisins do contain anti-inflammatory compounds, but not in amounts that would be therapeutic. The gin might dull pain, but drinking to excess sabotages health benefits of nutrients and vitamins, and introduces a whole new set of problems.
* Green tea. Drinking three to four cups of green tea a day could help people with RA. Studies funded by the Arthritis Foundation showed that giving the polyphenolic compounds in green tea to mice significantly decreased the incidence and severity of RA

Nutritional Supplements

* ASU (avocado-soybean unsaponifiable). French studies of ASU, derived from avocado and soybean oils, show it can relieve OA pain, stimulate cartilage repair, and lower a patient's need for nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to control pain. Jason Theodosakis, MD, author of The Arthritis Cure and champion of glucosamine chondroitin, believes ASU will have a major impact on treatment of OA. Sold in France by prescription under the name Piascledine 300, it's available in the U.S. without a prescription.
* Black currant oil. See GLA.
* Borage oil. See GLA.
* Boron. Population studies show that people who have high-boron diets have a very low incidence of arthritis, and there's evidence that people with OA and RA can benefit. The best sources of boron are fresh fruits and vegetables and, depending on where you live, drinking water.
* Bovine cartilage. Taken from the windpipe and trachea of cows, it's supposed to act as an anti-inflammatory agent in the treatment of OA and RA. A few animal and laboratory studies are promising, but there are no human studies to support claims. Researchers also think it may promote regrowth of cartilage.
* Bromelain. This substance found in pineapple is supposed to relieve pain and swelling in OA and RA and improve mobility. There are no studies that show it's effective by itself, but one study of a bromelain supplement containing the enzymes rutin and trypsin relieved pain and improved function in 73 people with knee OA. The effect was similar to taking an NSAID.
* CMO. It's touted as an "arthritis cure," but there's no human clinical evidence to support it.
* Chondroitin sulfate. Used for many years in Europe to relieve OA pain, it's been shown to stop joint degeneration, improve function, and ease pain. One study followed patients with OA in finger joints for three years, and showed fewer patients developed further cartilage damage. It can take two months or more to realize the effects of chondroitin.
* DMSO. Once widely used to relieve joint and tissue inflammation, it fell out of favor when animal studies showed high doses damaged the lens of the eye. Don't use it without consulting your doctor.
* Evening primrose oil. See GLA.
* Fish oil. Studies show it relieves the pain of RA.
* Flaxseed. There are many good nutritional reasons to add it to your diet, but studies of its effect on arthritis have shown mixed results. Its anti-inflammatory properties work best if other vegetable-based oils are restricted.
* GLA. Gamma linolenic acid (GLA) is an omega-6 fatty acid the body uses to make anti-inflammatory agents, unlike other omega-6 fatty acids that actually increase inflammation. It's found in evening primrose oil, black currant oil, and borage oil supplements. Several studies show it relieves the stiffness and pain of RA. In one study, some patients were able to quit taking NSAIDs.
* Ginger. It's known to have painkilling and anti-inflammatory agents. Ginger is believed to reduce joint pain and inflammation in people with OA and RA, and protect the stomach from gastrointestinal effects of NSAIDs. A clinical study showed ginger reduced knee OA pain.
* Glucosamine. As glucosamine hydrochloride or glucosamine sulfate, this supplement relieves symptoms for many, but not all, people with OA. It helps the body build and repair cartilage. In a double-blind study, glucosamine sulfate was as effective in relieving symptoms in patients with knee OA as ibuprofen and had fewer side effects. It takes about two months to realize the effectiveness of this supplement. And it's derived from crab, lobster, or shrimp shells, so check with your doctor before taking any kind of glucosamine if you are allergic to shellfish.
* Glucosamine chondroitin. Many OA patients get relief by taking glucosamine and chondroitin together, but it's not known whether the combination is more effective than taking them alone. That's the subject of a National Institutes of Health (NIH) study called GAIT (glucosamine/chondroitin arthritis intervention trial) now under way. The research shows how effective the supplements are in terms of improving functional ability and reducing pain in people with knee OA. Results are expected to be published in 2005.
* MSM. It's widely touted for relief of pain and inflammation. Its safety and effectiveness have yet to be determined.
* SAM-e. Many European studies over the last 20 years show SAM-e is as effective as anti-inflammatory painkillers in treating OA but with fewer side effects. It works in conjunction with vitamin B-12, B-6, and folate. Claims that SAM-e repairs and rebuilds cartilage lack evidence, as studies have been done only in the lab and in animals.
* Shark cartilage. Ground-up cartilage from Pacific Ocean sharks is supposed to relieve the inflammation and pain of arthritis. Animal and lab studies are promising, but there are no human studies to support claims. Researchers also think it may promote regrowth of cartilage.
* Stinging nettle. Taken orally or applied to the skin, stinging nettle is supposed to reduce the pain and inflammation of OA. Some studies show that patients can lower their dosages of NSAIDs by taking stinging nettle in extract form. Two small studies showed stinging nettle applied topically reduced pain for people with hip OA and thumb joint pain.
* Turmeric. This supplement is used in traditional Chinese and Indian Aruyvedic medicine to relieve pain, stiffness, and inflammation of OA and RA. A small study that combined turmeric, boswellia, and zinc showed decreased pain in OA. Two studies using a combination of turmeric, boswellia, ginger, and aswangandha relieved pain and inflammation in RA. Its effectiveness alone is unknown.
* Wild yam. Although it contains natural anti-inflammatory steroids, it is likely they're not in a form the body can use.




Eat plenty of sulphur containing foods, such as garlic and onion, and eggs. Sulphur is needed for the repair and rebuilding of bone, cartilage and connective tissue, and aids in the absorption of calcium.


Eat plenty of green leafy vegetables, and vegetables of every colour, non-acidic fresh fruit.


Eat whole grains (except wheat) such as spelt, kamut, millet and brown rice.


Eat oily fish, such as mackerel, herring, sardine, pilchard (avoid the tomato sauce in the tins of fish).


Eat fresh (not dried or tinned) pineapple when available as the enzyme Bromelain found in pineapple will help reduce inflammation.


Take a tablespoon of linseeds with a couple of glasses of room temperature water every day.


Apple cider vinegar is very good for people with arthritis.


Reduce saturated fat from animals in your diet and avoid fried foods.


Avoid all milk and other dairy produce. You may be alright with goats or sheeps yoghurt.


Avoid red meat.


Avoid the nightshade family of vegetables (peppers, aubergine or eggplant, tomatoes and white potatoes ? also tobacco). The solanine found in these foods can cause pain in the muscles to susceptible people.


Avoid table salt (sodium chloride) but include the natural sodium found in foods such as celery ? this is needed to keep calcium in solution and not sit on top of your joints.


Get your iron from food, but ensure your multimineral supplements does not contain extra iron (unless your Doctor tells you you?re anaemic) ? there is some evidence iron may be involved in pain, swelling and joint destruction. You do need some iron though, so eat broccoli, blackstrap molasses, beetroot, peas and, if you are Blood Type O, a little lean organic red meat if this appears to suit you.

The Specialist informed me I can still eat everything.
And that I do not have to keep an eye on what I eat.

But it's still a good read.  :smirk:

how old are you?

arthritis is inflammatory process that can, in many cases, be tied to an immune system in overdrive...  :smirk:

something in your diet/environment is causing your immune system to kick in and do this to you. my best advice is to meet with a naturopath.

peace

29 is way too young to be experiencing this disease. unless there are physical reasons like broken ankles

no, i've never had this disease. but i have experience...

your body is way out of balance. when this happens disease sets in. this doesn't happen over nite. you may be genetically predisposed to develop arthritis, so.... over time you developed arthritis. someone else might develop heart disease or cancer. all disease starts as an inflammation of the tissue.

your medication may cover pain and cut swelling but will never get at the root cause of your problem. so you'll continue taking your medicine. my guess is that you have been put on some type of anti inflammatory. these help by turning off the body's auto response. if this is the way you want to live, then this is the way it will be. you know what is best for you

just because we may carry a gene for a disease doesn't mean we are doomed to develop it. you seem cool...take care of yourself. shroomism put together a list things to consider.

give your body the right tools and it will heal itself

my doctor graduated from harvard medical school. shes been involved in alot of cool shit over her career. and she decided to walk a different path than others based on her experiences healing people. she is a naturopath. i am glad i know her...  :smile:

peace
