Today, while researching the medicine, I found out that one of the side effects was increased FSH and LH, which increases estrogen to start ovulation. So that's why there could be this increase in the seizures with the meds.
I'm frustrated as to what to do now. I've had it for years. With mainstreamed medicine they only rely on pharmaceutical companies for treatment, and the natural alternatives which are usually more helpful are never promoted by them or covered by insurance. Something has to change in how insurance covers medical forms of treatment!
40) Turmeric helps with aches/pains/stiffness and makes the “getting old” feeling go away.
Vitamin B5 is great for adult acne, hair loss, rosacea, pcos, insulin resistance. Facial skin will look wonderful.
Calcium-d-glucarate: I lost 1” belly fat overnight!
Kirkman labs calcium-magnesium-vitamin D3 powder. Most calcium products are junk.
No synthroid. Nature-throid instead, totally rocks! The body does not recognize synthroid because it is synthetic and over time is gets resistant to it. Also synthroid contains no t3. You need t3 and t4. Nature-throid has both.
No synthetic bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Use natural bioidentical hormone replacement therapy instead! Don’t be fooled! Progesterone and estriol are best in a cream form rather than pellets or troches (better dosage control). Never take estradiol -- estriol only!!
No BCPs for PCOS -- ever! BCPs are bad!
Try dim: -- Nature’s Way brand is good. Helps with estrogen dominance and belly fat.
You should immediately consult with your General Practitioner (Family Doctor) or with a Neurologist.
While the symptoms are often benign in nature, they can also be indicators of a more serious illness such as ALS or MS. You should be tested as soon as possible.
While there are currently no known cures for BFS, and management of BFS symptoms is a subject for some debate, you should keep in contact with your Neurologist to keep abreast of any progress in the treatment of BFS.
Also, if you experience any change in the symptoms that you are experiencing, you should immediately make your Neurologist aware of these changes as they may be indicative of other underlying symptoms.
No. This is a common worry for those who have been diagnosed with BFS.
The number of people developing ALS after having been diagnosed with BFS is statistically the same as for the General Population.
As long as you have been diagnosed by a qualified Neurologist, you should have no concerns. If fact, many people suffering with BFS have reported that their symptoms increase with stress and worrying, so you are probably making your symptoms worse than they need to be by worrying about your diagnosis.
Fasciculations themselves can be present for years and not associated with a malignant condition.
However, if you start to develop new symptoms (such as weakness), and a change is your symptoms, see a Neurologist as soon as possible.
Typically, the doctor will test your reflexes, have you perform some simple strength tests, and administer an EMG. In some cases, blood tests may be ordered or a muscle tissue biopsy will be taken.
The symptoms can range in length from months to many years. In some cases, the symptoms never completely cease.
Typically the symptoms with come and go, with periods of increased twitching, separated by periods of remission where the symptoms are milder, but still present.
In some cases the periods of remission will get longer over time, with the active periods experiencing less intense symptoms.
BFS is a confirmed, diagnosable disorder. If fact, a large percentage of the people diagnosed with BFS are in the medical profession (in a study by the Mayo Clinic of 121 people diagnosed with BFS, 40 were healthcare workers).
Times of increased stress or anxiety may cause similar symptoms (i.e. twitching of the eyelid), that will go away when the stress causing antagonist is removed, however this is a common effect of stress and is not typically BFS.
Often, those who are suffering from BFS will find that their symptoms get worse during the time when they are experiencing increased levels of stress or anxiety. It has been suggested that stress partially weakens or disables the immune system, therefore allowing latent disorders or sicknesses to grow in severity. (See: What causes BFS)
Surprisingly, there are no symptoms of hypercholesterolemia (high cholesterol) itself. However, chronically (long-term; several decades’ worth) elevated levels of serum cholesterol when not diagnosed can result in atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis, also known as arteriosclerotic vascular disease or ASVD, is the narrowing of the blood vessels caused by the build-up of fats such as cholesterol. The formation of fat-comprised plaques in the arteries continues to pile up, resulting in the progressive stenosis (narrowing) and ultimate occlusion (blockage) of the affected arteries.
(If you live in Florida, you might be interested in learning about our high cholesterol clinical trial in DeLand, FL.)
Hypercholesterolemia results in extra cholesterol being left in the bloodstream by low-density lipoproteins (LDLs). It is the job of the high-density lipoproteins (HDLs) to clean up the cholesterol deposits in the bloodstream. If the HDLs cannot clean up all the cholesterol left by the LDLs, the cholesterol will build up in the arteries as plaque, resulting in atherosclerosis stenosis or even occlusion.
Atherosclerosis may lead to tissue and organ ischemia (blood supply restriction). Organs and tissue that receive nutrient-rich blood via the clogged arteries suffer diminishing blood distribution, because less blood can be transferred through the arterial stenosis or blockage. Ischemia causes harm to the functioning of organs and tissues.
Hypercholesterolemia can result in the following:
- atherosclerosis, including the following:
- arterial stenosis
- arterial occlusion
- tissue and organ ischemia, resulting in the following:
- injury to organ and tissue function
Upon the ischemia-induced tissue or organ impairment, a variety of medical conditions can result, including the following: temporary ischemia of the brain (transient ischemic attack), ischemia of the heart, and ischemia of the eye.
Atherosclerosis in the brain can result in stroke. Signs and symptoms of temporary ischemia of the brain include:
- temporary loss of vision
- balance impairment
- aphasia (difficulty speaking)
- numbness or tingling in the body (usually on one side)
The organ most affected by atherosclerosis is the heart. Atherosclerosis in the heart or in a blood vessel that carries blood to the heart (coronary artery) can result in coronary heart disease and result in heart attack or cardiac muscle death. Ischemia of the heart may present in the following ways:
- chest pain
- difficulty breathing
- shortness of breath
- rapid or irregular heartbeats
- extreme anxiety
- indigestion or heartburn
- pain or discomfort in areas in the upper body, including the arms, back, stomach, left shoulder, jaw or neck
- cold sweat
- extreme weakness
Ischemia of the eye may result in temporary loss of vision.
Familial hypercholesterolemia known as type IIa hyperlipoproteinemia may be associated with the following signs and symptoms:
- xanthomata (deposits of yellowish material containing cholesterol)
- xanthelasma palpebrarum (yellowish patches under the skin around the eyelids)
- arcus senilis (gray or white discoloring of the eye’s cornea.
A form of hypercholesterolemia known as type III hyperlipidemia may be associated with the following signs and symptoms:
- xanthomata (deposits of yellowish material containing cholesterol) in the palms
- xanthomata in the elbows
- xanthomata in the knees
If you experience any of the above symptoms, consult your health care provider. The risk of hypercholesterolemia is increased in those who are obese, maintain unhealthy diets, and have genetic predispositions to hypercholesterolemia. There are medications available for those with high cholesterol. Ways we can all treat and prevent high cholesterol:
- engaging in physical exercise
- maintaining a healthy body weight
- eating nutritious and low fat foods

Je suis infirmiere à info-santé et BEAUCOUP de gens ne savent pas la différence entre les 2!! Des rhumes qui virent en grippe, des grippes musculaires ou des grippes qui durent 3 mois!! J’entends cela très souvent!! Tes articles sont vraiment très drôles et surtout pertinentes!! Merci
Est-il possible d’utiliser les affiches en PDF pour faire de la sensibilisation?
Notamment sur Facebook?
Oui, elles sont là pour ça!
Merci pour la version pdf, excellente idée! J’imprime et j’affiche dans ma classe. J’en donne aussi un exemplaire à l’infirmier.
Mal de tête et mal partout peuvent aussi être présents en cas de rhume.
Juste un petit mot pour dire que la “grippe d”homme” m’a faite mourir de rire! > Le Scrat | February 26, 2017 at 12:12 pm | Reply
Bonjour!! J ai pensé à vous en tombant sur unarticle concernant le paracetamol.
Malgré le fait que les auteurs donnentun look serieux et scientifique … bon j ai failli abandonner ma lecture au premier paragraphe (l efferalgan fait parti des medicaments contenant du paracetamol, deja ça part mal!).
Peut etre qu il pourravos inspirer 😉
Continuez votre blog et vos super articles.
Voici le titre d’un article lu sur le site « Le Figaro.fr »: « L’épidémie de grippe cet hiver a provoqué quelque 14 400 décès. » Dans l’article, on fait mention que le vaccin n’était pas trop efficace cette année. Est-ce le même vaccin au Canada?
En revanche, pas un mot sur les décès causés par le vaccin lui-même. Encore un complot de l’industrie pharmaceutique, j’imagine…
Depuis hier je morve h24 mais c’est transparent, ça serait dû à une allergie du coup? Et moi qui pensait n’en avoir aucune!
En fait non, la couleur du mucus (morve) est vraiment difficile à interpréter. La plupart du temps, c’est assez transparent, même quand on a le rhume. Quand c’est coloré, c’est que le mucus contient une concentration importante de globules blancs.
Globalement, le point à retenir est que le mucus coloré n’est pas typique dans les allergies. Mais du mucus transparent, c’est pas super informatif.
Merci pour la question et A+!
Pour le rhume tu dis qu’il faut bien s’hydrater…. alors l’eau peut bien guérir plein de maladie:O. Tu nous mentais depuis le début.
Hello.. instructif et drôle.. merci😆..
Sympa cette BD sur la grippe, j’ai bien ri 😉 Bravo pour le site 😉
rhume c’est une inflammation des fosses nasales ou rhinite par contre la grippe est une infection d’origine virale
Pneumocystis Carinii — This condition occurs when a fungus infects the lungs. Symptoms may include fever, cough, difficulty breathing, weight loss, night sweats and fatigue.
It is most likely to occur when the CD4+ T cell count falls below 200 cells per cubic millimeter of blood. Preventative treatment may be administered when the CD4+ T cell count falls below 200 cells per cubic millimeter of blood. Treatment is usually trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, also called Septra or Bactrim, dapsone or atovoquone.
Recurrent Pneumonia — People with AIDS are at risk for recurrent bacterial pneumonia. Bacteria can infect the lungs, which may lead to problems ranging from a mild cough to severe pneumonia. Recurrent pneumonia is most likely to occur when the CD4+ T cell count falls below 200 cells per cubic millimeter of blood.
Tuberculosis (TB) — This is a serious, and often deadly, bacterial infection that primarily infects the lungs. TB is transmitted when a person with active TB coughs or sneezes, releasing microscopic particles into the air. If inhaled, these particles may transmit the condition.
Once infected by TB, most people remain healthy and develop only latent infection. People with latent infection are neither sick nor infectious. However, they do have the potential to become sick and infectious with active TB. It can occur at any CD4+ T cell level but especially when the CD4+ T cell count falls below 350 cells per cubic millimeter of blood.
Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma — Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is a disease in which tumors develop from white blood cells in the lymphatic system. It is another common disease associated with AIDS. See AIDS-related lymphoma.
Candidiasis — This is the most common HIV-related fungus infection. It can affect the entire body, but most commonly occurs in the mouth (thrush) or vagina. An overgrowth of yeast causes white patches on gums, tongue or lining of the mouth, pain, difficulty in swallowing and loss of appetite. Candida in the esophagus, trachea, bronchi or lungs is AIDS defining.
Herpes Simplex — This virus causes cold sores or genital herpes, which are painful blisters in the genital area. Chronic herpes simplex virus (HSV) lesions and severe mucocutaneous HSV disease are common in the advanced stages of AIDS.
Kaposi's Sarcoma — This is the most common AIDS-related cancer. It causes reddish-purple lesions that usually appear on the skin. They also can appear on the lymph nodes, mouth, gastrointestinal tract and lungs.
Shingles — Shingles are caused by a reactivation of the chicken pox virus. It may cause a painful rash or blisters that follow the path of nerves.

A sore throat is often the first sign of a cold and may get better after a day or two; other cold symptoms such as a runny nose and congestion may follow the sore throat. The primary symptom of tonsillitis is a moderate to severe sore throat lasting longer than 2 days and involves inflammation of the tonsils. Other symptoms of tonsillitis may include:
- Difficult or painful swallowing
- Swollen and tender glands (lymph nodes) on the sides of the neck
- Bad breath
- Fever and chills
- Tiredness and headache
- Stomach upset or pain
- Enlarged and reddened tonsils with spots of white/yellow pus
- Mouth breathing, noisy breathing, and/or snoring (due to enlarged tonsils blocking the airways).
Avoiding close contact with people who have tonsillitis is advisable to prevent passing on the infection. Children and other family members should be kept away from people with tonsillitis as much as possible. Hygiene measures should also be used to prevent spread of infection. These include:
- Regular and thorough washing and drying of hands
- Using a tissue to cover coughs and sneezes
- Frequent and through washing and drying of hands
- Not sharing foods, liquids, or eating utensils or drinking vessels
- Frequent cleaning of surfaces particularly in the kitchen and bathroom.
