  1. Air conditioning can mess with sinuses - air filtration can be a factor. The body is reacting to the cold. That's normal - the body shivers to generate heat and goos bumps are just a sign of that - "thickening' the hair space from the skin to hold in heat. Nausea can be just nerves, too. I can't eat when I am very anxious. Nasal sprays should help with the nasal drip. It dries out the production through antihistamines.
  2. I have a post nasal drip issue. That can contribute to nausea. I originally had a prescription for Flonase, but you can buy it over the counter. It's a 24-hour dose.
  3. Potassium can help with muscle cramping.
  4. I am going to have to look that up - I don't know what that is. I am glad you are finding things out, no matter how slow it seems.
  5. It is like a Choose Your Own Adventure. How we think determines how we feel...and sometimes, it doesn't match reality!
  6. Your nerves wpuld be normal. The tests are to see where the problems are coming from. Cancer is a bit of a stretch. It's probably an infection. Stay hydrated.
  7. Sympathetic pain-like. Illnesses have always been around. Having more people might make it a bit more in-your-face. Naturally, we want to internalize everything, so even things we know deep down arent about us....we think are about us.
  8. @Christy67It is probably allergies. I have a weird stage this time of year with my left ear and sinuses. Today isn't a good day, either lol. It tends to happen with heat waves lol. We just got out of one, but it still hit 88F with dry winds. We have another one in Ohio next week. Happy times lol.
  9. @MARC Ihear that stuff all the time. People have a panic attack, think they are having a heart attack, go to the ER, get checked out withh all the tests, and everything is negative. No stroke, no heart attack, but the panic still comes through.
  10. I think they were talking about the normal upper arm one that squeezes.. You're supposed have your arm out, with palm up, and relaxed lol.
  11. I know the feeling. I had to learn to push through the depression - it takes energy to do that. I hope things are going better for you - we do worry about you on here!
  12. And they can arrive at any time! I get hit in the morning. Technically, it's a panic attack that wakes us up from sleep mode. My heart races then.
  13. @Christy67 Stress can do just about anything to the body. Headaches, anxiety, gastrointestinal issues, nausea - that's just me lol
  14. Ketamine is also known on the street as "Special K", a "party drug". It's encouraging to know that a doctor is directly involved. The rest, like you, doesn't sit well concerning the possible danger - but that's more about the quality itself. Street versions could be dirty. Definitely talk to your doctor.
  15. It's more common than you think. Our bodies can have weird reactions to the stress so our minds are important :).
