  1. The forum should start charging people here for advertising. They must be getting some kickback for steering people to their site.
  2. Many years ago i fell and my back began bothering me when I bent forward and I got a bruise around the center of my back. It hurt pretty bad. I called my physician and he told me to go to the ER. I went to the ER and they xrayed my back. Next thing you know I was admitted as an inpatient for 6 days for observation as I had a compression fracture of the vertebrae. I had to wear a back brace for a few months and it healed and I was told by the orthopaedic physician named Jayasanker Menon that I should have no further issues and so far I have not.
  3. Why are all of these people advertising on this forum???
  4. My wife is pharmacist and she said before stopping any medicine, to talk with your physician first.
  5. Sorry no one ever answered your inquiry. Eventually when you begin to gain weight your self-esteem will improve. Just gain the weight for yourself and it will make you feel better about yourself. It is very positive you are on the road to recovery.
  6. See a doctor more for your peace of mind.
  7. I had two large Lipomas on my right thigh many years ago. They grew and became painful so I had to have them removed by a general surgeon. They are quite common. It is a good sign that it is not growing and it is rubbery and squishy. It may make you feel better to have a physician look at it..
  8. We all feel weird at one time or another. I would see how you feel and if the feeling persists, then I would call your physician.
  9. If the doctor thought it was anything bad, more tests would have been ordered.
  10. You may have a Lipoma, which is a fatty benign cyst. I had a few of them on my thigh a number of years ago. They were at times painful and were rubbery and were movable.
  11. Sorry to hear you are feeling badly. I have at times felt pretty bad myself. What has helped me is to keep busy and keep my mind occupied. I have had actual health issues in the past which did not help matters.

    Anxiety anxiety

    My physician has told me that actual physical illness needs to be ruled out first as the cause of anxiety symptoms.
  13. A carcinoid tumor is an extremely rare form of cancerous tumor that usually appears in the GI system or lungs.
  14. I remember once trying to self diagnose myself to my GI physician and he said to me, you are a CPA, so stick to what you know best and leave me the medical diagnosing to me.
