Why am I writing about something as mundane as a natural gas leak in my home? My house didn’t explode into flames; my family didn’t asphyxiate in their sleep, nothing as dramatic as that. No, our leak was slow and undetectable to ourselves and visitors to our home. We lived in our house for nearly 4 years before we discovered what was making us all sick. Very sick.
My family developed a several medical conditions as a result of our exposure. No one was left untouched by the exposure, even our pets.
This site has been developed to help others who may be affected by natural gas poisoning and are looking for help just as I was.
For years I searched for answers to why my children were developing their symptoms, what could be the causing this illness? Once we discovered the natural gas leak in our home, I searched long hours for treatments and cures, but found little information on the subject.
I suspect there are others who are like me who are looking for help, for answers, or just for validation. It helps so much to know you are not the only one with this problem. The health practitioners may think IT is “all in your head”, but IT may just be leaking out of your home’s gas pipes.
Read on to learn more about the symptoms, research and results of our experience with Natural Gas.
Amniotic fluid surrounds the developing fetus in the amniotic sac, and performs some important functions. The amniotic fluid:
- provides protective cushioning
- protects the baby and uterus from infection
- serves as a backup of nutrients and fluids for your baby
- allows your baby to move about and breath
- helps in the development of the respiratory, digestive and musculoskeletal systems
What Causes Oligohydramnios During Pregnancy?
There are several different causes of low amniotic fluid, which include:
Signs and Symptoms of Low Amniotic Fluid
There are several signs that may lead you to suspect low levels of amniotic fluid.
- leaking fluid
- small measurements
- lack of feeling movement from your baby
- an amniotic fluid index (AFI) of 5cm or less
One of the main concerns is that your placenta may not be functioning correctly, which could lead to a number of complications. You may have a premature birth, or the amniotic fluid may get so low that your baby will compress the umbilical cord and starve himself of oxygen. Low amniotic fluid may also prevent some of the vital organs and systems we all rely on for fully developing.
Chest Pain or Chest Discomfort: Few symptoms are more alarming than chest pain. In the minds of many people, chest pain equals heart pain. And while many other conditions can cause chest pain, cardiac disease is so common - and so dangerous - that the symptom of chest pain should never be dismissed out of hand as being insignificant. "Chest pain" is an imprecise term. It is often used to describe any pain, pressure, squeezing, choking, numbness or any other discomfort in the chest, neck, or upper abdomen, and is often associated with pain in the jaw, head, or arms. It can last from less than a second to days or weeks, can occur frequently or rarely, and can occur sporadically or predictably. This description of chest pain is obviously very vague, and as you might expect, many medical conditions aside from heart disease can produce symptoms like this.
Lightheadedness or Dizziness: Episodes of lightheadedness or dizziness can have many causes, including anemia (low blood count) and other blood disorders, dehydration, viral illnesses, prolonged bed rest, diabetes, thyroid disease, gastrointestinal disturbances, liver disease, kidney disease, vascular disease, neurological disorders, dysautonomias, vasovagal episodes, heart failureand cardiac arrhythmias. Because so many different conditions can produce these symptoms, anybody experiencing episodes of lightheadedness or dizziness ought to have a thorough and complete examination by a physician. And since disorders of so many organ systems can cause these symptoms, a good general internist or family doctor may be the best place to start.
Syncope (Fainting/Loss of Consciousness): Syncope is a sudden and temporary loss of consciousness, or fainting. It is a common symptom - most people pass out at least once in their lives - and often does not indicate a serious medical problem. However, sometimes syncope indicates a dangerous or even life-threatening condition, so when syncope occurs it is important to figure out the cause.
Fatigue, Lethargy or Daytime Sleepiness: Fatigue, lethargy or somnolence (daytime sleepiness) are very common symptoms. Fatigue or lethargy can be thought of as an inability to continue functioning at one's normal levels. Somnolence implies, in addition, that one either craves sleep - or worse, finds oneself suddenly asleep, a condition known as narcolepsy - during the daytime. While fatigue and lethargy can be symptoms of heart disease (particularly, of heart failure), these common and non-specific symptoms can also be due to disorders of virtually any other organ system in the body. Similar to lightheadedness and dizziness, individuals with fatigue and lethargy need a good general medical evaluation in order to begin pinning down a specific cause. Somnolence is often caused by nocturnal sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome or insomnia. All these sleep disturbances, however, are more common in patients with heart disease.
Treatment of the Common Cold in Children and Adults
JULIA FASHNER, MD; KEVIN ERICSON, MD; and SARAH WERNER, DO, St. Joseph Family Medicine Residency, Mishawaka, Indiana
Am Fam Physician. 2012 Jul 15;86(2):153-159.
Patient information: See related handouts on treating the common cold in adults and in children, written by the authors of this article.
The common cold, or upper respiratory tract infection, is one of the leading reasons for physician visits. Generally caused by viruses, the common cold is treated symptomatically. Antibiotics are not effective in children or adults. In children, there is a potential for harm and no benefits with over-the-counter cough and cold medications; therefore, they should not be used in children younger than four years. Other commonly used medications, such as inhaled corticosteroids, oral prednisolone, and Echinacea, also are ineffective in children. Products that improve symptoms in children include vapor rub, zinc sulfate, Pelargonium sidoides (geranium) extract, and buckwheat honey. Prophylactic probiotics, zinc sulfate, nasal saline irrigation, and the herbal preparation Chizukit reduce the incidence of colds in children. For adults, antihistamines, intranasal corticosteroids, codeine, nasal saline irrigation, Echinacea angustifolia preparations, and steam inhalation are ineffective at relieving cold symptoms. Pseudoephedrine, phenylephrine, inhaled ipratropium, and zinc (acetate or gluconate) modestly reduce the severity and duration of symptoms for adults. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and some herbal preparations, including Echinacea purpurea, improve symptoms in adults. Prophylactic use of garlic may decrease the frequency of colds in adults, but has no effect on duration of symptoms. Hand hygiene reduces the spread of viruses that cause cold illnesses. Prophylactic vitamin C modestly reduces cold symptom duration in adults and children.
The common cold, or upper respiratory tract infection, usually is caused by one of several respiratory viruses, most commonly rhinovirus. These viruses, which concentrate in nasal secretions, are easily transmitted through sneezing, coughing, or nose blowing. Signs and symptoms of the common cold include fever, cough, rhinorrhea, nasal congestion, sore throat, headache, and myalgias.
Antibiotics should not be used for the treatment of cold symptoms in children or adults.
Over-the-counter cough and cold medications should not be used in children younger than four years because of potential harms and lack of benefit.
Treatment with buckwheat honey, Pelargonium sidoides (geranium) extract (Umcka Coldcare), nasal saline irrigation, vapor rub, or zinc sulfate may decrease cold symptoms in children.
Codeine is not effective for cough in adults.
Antihistamine monotherapy (sedating and nonsedating) does not improve cold symptoms in adults.
Decongestants, antihistamine/decongestant combinations, and intranasal ipratropium (Atrovent) may improve cold symptoms in adults.
I have been on lexapro for about 6 months and had to quit cold turkey due to financial reasons and this is a complete NIGHTMARE! I have had brain zaps that feel like electricity running through my head, then a sensation of the breath being sucked out of me which in turn cause my lips to start tingling and this is just the tip of the iceberg. When these symptoms started they brought on what my neurologist is now calling a complicated migraine and when I get one of those I sometimes don't know who my family is during it and I develop aphasia which is all really scary. This has been going on since Father's Day. I am about to loose my mind! I really don't know how much more I can take.
When my doctor first prescribed Lexapro for me, I thought I had died and went to heaven; it really worked well for me (helped to alleviate depression and anxiety). After taking it for approximately 10 years ranging from 10 mg to 30 mg daily doses depending on a variety of life stressors, I was tired of trying to wean myself from the 30 mg doses. My doctor told me to decrease my dose from 20 to 10 mg for two weeks and then start 10 mg of Wellbutrin twice a day. The withdrawal symptoms which can be described as flu-like symptoms; dizziness, nausea, etc are awful but every so often the dizziness is accompanied by a whooshy/buzzing sensation in my head. Sometimes I need to sit down so I don't lose my balance. Based on what others have written on this blog, it seems it may have a few more months to suffer through before this hopefully better even though I have since I started taking the Wellbutrin. If anything, misery loves company and I feel less alone knowing that I am not the only one who is being tormented/tortured with these symptoms.
I feel for all you folks.I went in for a stress test and they found a lower heart beating. My Cadriologist told me to stop the lexipro immediately so its been a week and I have crazy headaches and moments of dizziness with some irratability. I wish you all the best and hope you find the answers and comfort you are looking for
I recently stopped taking lexapro, most likely two weeks ago. I have noticed a huge shift in my weight. I have gained about 10 pounds. Could this be a discontinuation side effect of the meds?
I was taking 5mg of Lexapro for over 2 years for horrible perimenopause symptoms. I tapered very slowly and have been off a month today. For almost two weeks I have never felt worse in my life. My anxiety is through the roof! I have constant hot flashes and terrible insomnia. My appetite is gone too. While on Lexapro, I gained weight and was hungry often. This is a horrible way to live. How long will this last? My husband says that my dose was so low that I could not possibly be affected by withdrawal symptoms. But, why do I feel so terrible when I have never felt this way before? I was on the drug for over 2 years. Any help is so appreciated.
Typical Signs of Sleep Deprivation and Insomnia.
Irritability. This isn't your typical "I just don't want to be bothered right now". This is a growing anger and near hatred of everything and everyone around you. This symptom of sleep deprivation will cause you to snap at the littlest things and boil over in anger at the most trivial of mistakes. You'll quickly know whether or not this level of "intolerance" is normal for you.
Tiredness. An unwavering, incessant feeling of "I just want to lay down and do nothing". In fact, doing nothing and thinking nothing sounds like the PERFECT idea and you want to start right now -- even if you're at work in the middle of a board meeting. Any task, be it big or small, is just too much work for you to handle and you want nothing more than to just sit or lay somewhere peacefully. You are quite literally sapped of energy.
Socially Inept. This isn't being "shy", this interacting with a wall who has recently been reincarnated into a human being. The things you say to people are incomprehensible and things said to you might as well be in a whole different language. Unlike the irritability symptoms of sleep deprivation, you're fine with everyone around you and you don't even mind talking to people -- you just can't understand what they are saying nor can you communicate effectively with them.
Note: If you're not real big talker or a "social butterfly" as its called, then this is one of those symptoms of sleep deprivation that you're bound to miss.
If You Have Any Of These Symptoms, Then Consider Using This Natural Insomnia Cure Instead of OTC Sleep Aids. More Often Than Not, Regular Use of Sleeping Pills Worsen Insomnia Problems.
Stress Cracker. Just as it says, this sign of sleep deprivation causes you to crack, fold, and just topple-over from any amount of stress or pressure. You feel like the whole world is on your shoulders and you can't solve any problem you are faced with. You feel, in a word, helpless.
Memory Loss. You aren't brain damaged or anything, but the lack of sleep and severe sleep deprivation has definitely impaired your cognition. Seconds, minutes, or hours ago, it doesn't matter -- you just can't recollect anything specifically in your mind. Its more of a "hazy" memory rather than an all together non-existent one.
Bad Concentration. One of the many signs of sleep deprivation that can seriously interfere in the work place. You just can't seem to focus on anything you're doing, no matter how inconsequential it may seem. Not only do you have poor focus and mental concentration, but your reaction time is slowed significantly as well. This is one of the more serious effects of insomnia as it literally has an affect on EVERYTHING you do.
Strange Appetite Changes. This symptom of sleep deprivation will cause you to either be super hungry all the time or it'll make you not want to eat anything at all, ever. Whatever the case may be, it's definitely not a normal thing and you may wind up losing weight or even gaining weight depending on how long this period of sleep deprivation lasts.
So, are these symptoms of sleep deprivation affecting you? If they are, then it's time to do something about it and treat your sleeplessness before it gets worse. These signs of sleep deprivation might not like seem like a big deal when they first appear, but don't be fooled, they can and WILL interfere with how you live your life.
Being Deficient in Iodine Affects Thyroid Function
Iodine is an essential mineral. It is a non-metal that is only needed in small, trace amounts in the body but it must be present in the right amount.
“This year, the flu strain mutated a little bit and there is one component of the flu strain that is causing the flu in people who actually did get the shot,” she said.
Several local hospitals are now limiting visitors to try and stop the spread of the flu. At the University of Maryland Medical Center, no visitors under the age of 18 will be allowed in the hospital, only two adult visitors can see a patient at one time and visitors experiencing flu symptoms are not permitted.
Flu season normally lasts through February and March.
Experts say they are expecting another surge in flu cases later in the season.
I was prescribed Lamictal for BiPolar. I started off at 25mg a day for 14 & then 5omg for 14 days. I am on my 4th day ( of the 50mg) & am having horrible "flu" like symptoms. Has anyone else experienced this. Thanks for any info.:)
I have hoarseness weight gain achiness in my legs and feet and more I askes to be dropped to 50 as I was on 100mg and had more side effects
Are your feet swollen and hands? do you feel weak? and you mentioned you have gained weight, What other side effects do you have because they may be serious.
contact your doc, and once again i ask u r u on other meds cause of the interactions?
Hi Im bi polar and I have been on in it for 3 or 4 years was on 200mg now Im on 300mg, no side effects but 4 me. Its a common side effect to have flu like symtoms, (body aches and chills).
I would still recommend u tell your doc.
hope this helps
i did talk to my doc and i think it is time for a second opinion. did anyone gain weight. i also have gained 15 lbs most fluid but how good is that on the rest of your body. i am afraid it is going to effect my heart
Try to avoid fluids that have to much sodium in them..that causes water retention. even bottled water. there is on form nestle gas free (at least here) free of sodium, also dont add sault to your meals, as sodium is a prservative that pratically comes in everything.
I appreciate everyone's comments. That is really the only side-effect I have had is the flu like symptoms. I have not gained weight at all. To the one that commented on the retention of fluid, that is not normal, if your Dr insist you stay on Lamictal maybe you could request they put you on 25mg of Hydrochlorothiazide a day. That will drop that water weight real quick. I haven't heard of weight gain with Lamictal. Actually, one of the side effects is "Anorexia". Has anyone else experienced weight gain ( or loss) with Lamictal?
Several side effects are possible with Lamictal. Weight gain does appear to be one of them, although it is not among the most commonly reported Lamictal side effects. This data comes from clinical trials where the drug was extensively studied and side effects were documented.
In studies, between 1 and 5 percent of people taking Lamictal for bipolar disorder treatment experienced weight gain. However, weight gain was not reported as a side effect in people taking it to control seizures.

Dans les cas sans complications, les symptômes de la grippe disparaissent habituellement sans traitement. Il est surtout recommandé de prendre du repos et de se soigner à la maison pour éviter de contaminer d’autres personnes.
Voici quelques façons de soulager vos symptômes:
- Se reposer
- Boire beaucoup d’eau
- Prendre des médicaments contre la fièvre en vente libre comme l’acétaminophène (Tylenols®), l’ibuprofène (Advil®) et l’acide acétylsalicylique (Aspirin®)
Pour tous médicaments en vente libre, n’oubliez pas de lire l’étiquette pour vous assurer que le traitement convienne à votre situation (âge, problématique de santé, etc.) ou consulter votre pharmacien, il saura vous guider.
Dans certains cas, le médecin peut également prescrire un médicament antiviral administré par voie orale. Pour être efficace, il doit être pris dans les 48 heures suivant l’apparition des premiers symptômes grippaux.
Les médicaments antiviraux tels que l’amantadine, le zanamivir et l’oseltamivir peuvent prévenir et traiter la grippe causée par le virus de type A ou B. Cependant, ils ne sont pas destinés à remplacer le vaccin annuel pour les gens à risques. Les médicaments antiviraux auront pour effet de diminuer les symptômes de la grippe s’ils sont administrés dans les 24 à 48 heures suivant l’apparition des symptômes. Notez qu’ils ne gênent pas l’action du vaccin administré par injection.
Ces médicaments ne doivent pas être considérés comme substitut à la vaccination qui demeure le meilleur moyen préventif contre la grippe.
On peut prévenir la grippe en se faisant vacciner tous les automnes. Le vaccin permet à l’organisme de produire les anticorps qui le protégeront pendant les cinq à six mois que dure la saison de la grippe. La vaccination annuelle permet de prévenir la grippe, et de réduire la gravité de la maladie. Le meilleur moment pour recevoir le vaccin antigrippal est au début de la saison grippale soit au mois d’octobre et de novembre.
Voici quelques façons simples et efficaces de vous protéger contre la grippe:
- Lavez-vous fréquemment les mains
- Nettoyez les surfaces les plus utilisées (poignets de porte, surfaces de comptoir, etc.)
- Limitez les contacts avec les personnes malades
- Faites-vous vacciner (consultez l’onglet Vaccination pour plus d’information sur le vaccin antigrippal)
En 2011, le Québec présentait le plus bas taux de vaccination au Canada avec 27% de sa population ayant reçu le vaccin. De plus, 25 % des Québécois affirmaient avoir contracté la grippe, ce qui représente le plus haut taux au pays.
En comparaison, la Colombie-Britannique a eu un taux de vaccination de 52% et, par conséquent, seulement 10% de la population avait été incommodée par la grippe cette même année.
Au Québec, chaque année, plus de 300 décès sont attribuables au virus de la grippe. Ce n’est donc pas une problématique à prendre à la légère.
