    <p>Sorry this is such a long first post for a new thread.  I've seen some threads in the past for Fibro Mamas but they are a bit old.  Thought I'd start a new one.  For those with Fibromyalgia, how do you handle your day?  Was pregnancy with Fibro better than normal or worse?  How do you manage...

    <p>I always thought my periods aren't bad, no cramps, regular like a clock and over very quickly.  The only problem is they're heavy.  I pretty much have to stay home the first two days to avoid leaking.  I go to bathroom all the time and don't sleep so well at night because I had to get up...

    <p>I had an emergency gallbladder removal Sunday afternoon and I feel like crap. My stomach hurts all over, not just near incisions. It's just so sore! The surgeon said that some people go back to work the next day and don't take pain meds...so why is it that 3 days later I'm barely mobile? I...

    My cycle is 7-8 days, and I heard there's a way to shorten it by 2-3 days through lemon juice or something. Does anyone know how, or another suggestion on how to do it?<br><br> Thanks.

    <p>Has anyone ever tried chaga? I got some from someone who harvested it locally in the woods around these parts and had ground it into a powder for tea bags. I was told to brew it like regular tea, just let it steep for longer but am finding lots of different opinions on the internet on how to...

    I am 6 wks postpartum and breastfeeding, and much to my surprise, I got my period yesterday. My pp bleeding almost ceased and then all of a sudden I started bleeding bright red again, which I can only assume is a period. I was not expecting a period so soon especially since I am breastfeeding...

    <p> My 2 years old son runs a fever of about 102-103 degrees that lasts 5-7 days almost every 2 weeks. His neck lymph nodes swell pretty big to the point where when you look at him you can see them very clearly on his neck. We have taken him to the doctor and he doesn't have a sore throat or an...

    <p>I'm just hoping to get some support and understanding from some other ladies maybe going through something similar.  My third child is now 15 months old and for the past 4-5 months I have really been struggling with some concerning health issues.  It started with headaches that would cause...

    Ds 1 who is 6, recently had lab work done. His WBC was 8 with a range of 6-17. The doctor said that you want a low WBC. I've always read that meant an inmunocompromised person? His hemoglobin was fine but his ferritin was low. So we're trying floradix.<br><br> I always get so freaked out about...

    I'm curious about what you do that you feel most enhances your health. Maybe something you eat or don't eat? Yoga? Exercise? Sleep? Chiropractic care, massage, acupuncture, etc.? Using a neti pot? Meditation? Something else?<br><br> Thanks!

    We went for ds well visit today and showed the doctor these little spots on his knees. She said they were either irritation or coxsackie virus. So after the appointment, I emailed her to ask if I should do anything for it if it were a virus, and when she replied, she said to watch out if it...

    Ds1 who is 6 years old has been saying his tummy hurts very randomly for a couple of months now. At first we thought it was nerves because he could go about his day without saying it again.<br><br> It used to happen when he would start eating. Now he says it after he starts to eat something...
