Re: can't swallow liquids

Hi sparklebelle. It's been a long time since we've spoken here, and it's good to read an update from you.

These doctors can be so confusing. He said your problem is 'mental', while also saying...

Re: Sick for 10+ years; completely bedridden and housebound

I'm 30+ years into all this. I've tried so many things, and even got the NAET book when it first came out. Each thing I've tried has done what it could, but it's gotten to the point now where one...

Re: My Boyfriend Lies To Me

If you really believe he's lying, he doesn't deserve to be called your "boyfriend". By the age he is now, he knows right from wrong, or there may be little hope for his future.

Re: Anyone else low in iron?

I decreased my meat intake, too, and later became very low in iron, as well as B12. It's been determined I cannot get sufficient B12 any other way than home injections, so I do those once a week,...

Re: What do you say when people ask "What do you do?"

I think the question an "asker" would be the sorriest for ever asking is if we honestly answered them when they say, "How are you today?" or "How was your holiday?". I've learned most people don't...

Re: Without a job, how do you spend your days?

How do the quilts you make actually get to the veterans in your vicinity? I live in an area where there are many vets on street corners, and I'd like to help them in some way, while staying safe as a...

Re: Isolation and PTSD

It's extremely frustrating and discouraging, but what else 'can' we do?

Re: can't swallow liquids

For anyone who isn't familiar with what we're talking about here, our type of dysphagia is very different from most. Nothing gets stuck in our throat or anywhere else when we swallow. It's more a...

Re: PTSD from an experience you don't remember?

I have Complex PTSD, too, and some of my memories are what they call "pre-verbal" because I was just an infant when I was abused. In that case, the memories are stored in the cells instead of the...

Re: can't swallow liquids

Hi Ladybug,

I only just now noticed your post for some reason. I, too, have had all those tests, and know for sure I don't have acid reflux, or I would be able to feel the burning.

Re: can't swallow liquids

Hi Shelley,

Mine started in 1995, and has been better and worse, better and worse, going around in circles. It seems certain things I see, hear or read will trigger something inside, like...

Re: can't swallow liquids

Hi Shelley,

I really feel for you, too, and am so sorry for what you've been through. I've been told that I, too, was sexually abused as an infant, but it would be pre-verbal, so it would be...

Re: can't swallow liquids

Hi Sparklebelle,

I was in the ER numerous times for dehydration. My doctor wouldn't send me or subscribe IVs most of the time, so I would have to go through triage every time, and they would...

Re: can't swallow liquids

I don't see any replies to your post, so am wondering how you're doing by now. What did your tests show? I had the whole battery of tests with videoscope, et al, but that was 1995. They told me my...

Re: what foods can I actually eat with IBS?

There's a good way to find out if dairy is a problem. Ask a naturopathic doctor for the Carroll Food Intolerance Test. It's also a good idea to find out about grain/ gluten intolerance.

Re: i dont wanna live with ibs

Bobers47, that was an interesting post. I was diagnosed with IBS many years ago, but at the time they didn't seem to know the gluten connection, and I suppose mainstream docs still don't know. I have...

Re: what foods can I actually eat with IBS?

I've had IBS for at least 40 years, and was diagnosed long ago before there was a differentiation between constipation and diarrhea. I've had lots of time to experiment and also research this. I've...

Hi luckeee, I'm new to this board but I've had IBS for at least 40 years. I can understand how this makes you feel, and I think you might want to start with finding a doctor (either allopathic or...
