You seem incredibly knowledgeable about this thyroid stuff. I've been feeling rotten for years now. After my mother passed away, I and my doctors assumed I was just depressed. I had/have zero energy, sleep way too much, (I honestly feel like I could sleep for a week) and have to force myself to do the daily life things. I also have been recently been swelling badly in my legs and ankles. So I finally got some insurance this year, and decided to go check it out. I told the new to me doctor(family doctor) that after all MY research, hypothyroidism was the most logical answer. So he ordered up a huge array of blood tests. Amazingly, he called me the same night and stated that my thyroid levels were abnormal, and that he was going to start me on a low level of Levothyroxine. (50mcg) once a day in morning an hour before food and other medication. Well, since starting it, the only difference i feel is horrible stomach pain. Upper stabbing, like sandpaper rubbing against my insides. Now, ive had ulcers on and off in my lifetime. Ive been taking Levo for 5 days now. The pain started 4 days ago. Is this from the levo and common place? Or is my ulcer just coincidentally happening at the same time? Any and all experienced answers welcome. Thank you in advance
I have had great experience… Now when I first started I had a lot of yucky feeling and just in general felt blah…With in several weeks everything I was feeling was gone.. I am no longer taking 5 different meds from my doctor and all of my labs are great now. So i spend $ a month instead of $300 and feel much better… Weightloss? I have lost a little but I do not eat right and nothing is a miracle drug.. I have stopped my caffeine drinks (except coffee in the am).. So what I have lost has been mostly from that. I feel wonderful and I started selling Plexus 6 months after I started using it. I was not pushed into it and heck I even asked the person if I could sign up. I do not push it on others. There is a 60 day money back guarantee even if the bottle is empty. Plexus starts with cleaning your gut. This cleansing process may make you feel like crap at first. After that it is awesome. My favorite part is my doctor agrees with my choice in plexus. The reason? The blood work I have had before and during Plexus. Weight loss is a original side effect of the “pink drink”.
The caudal approach to the epidural space involves the use of a Tuohy needle, an intravenous catheter, or a hypodermic needle to puncture the sacrococcygeal membrane . Injecting local anaesthetic at this level can result in analgesia and/or anaesthesia of the perineum and groin areas. The caudal epidural technique is often used in infants and children undergoing surgery involving the groin, pelvis or lower extremities. In this population, caudal epidural analgesia is usually combined with general anaesthesia since most children do not tolerate surgery when regional anaesthesia is employed as the sole modality.
Minor undesired symptoms from caffeine ingestion not sufficiently severe to warrant a psychiatric diagnosis are common, and include mild anxiety, jitteriness, insomnia, increased sleep latency, and reduced coordination.   Caffeine can have negative effects on anxiety disorders .  According to a 2011 literature review, caffeine use is positively associated with anxiety and panic disorders.  At high doses, typically greater than 300 mg, caffeine can both cause and worsen anxiety.  For some people, discontinuing caffeine use can significantly reduce anxiety. 
I have been receiving IVIG for nearly 9 yrs. At first, I used Gammunex with fairly mild side effects. Then my supplier insisted it was no longer available and put me on Gammagard that caused bad headaches, fatigue, pain and some nausea. I finally wrote to IG Living regarding how I could get back to Gammunex. They quickly responded that all I needed to do was have my doctor write an RX for "Gammunex Only" and that did it!! I do much better now. My premeds are 400 mg Ibuprofen, 25 Benadryl, 50 mg IV solu-cortef pre and post treatment. I also take my RX headache meds and pain meds as I also suffer from FM and chronic fatigue. I am doing much better now and no longer have to wipe out my schedule for a week after tx! Thank God for the resource of IG Living! I do have problems sleeping the first and often second night after tx that I am sure is due to the steroid. I just block out a few days to adjust and rest when I can. But, so much better than I did with Gammagard!!
