Lyndel, I'm interested in your progress

Posted by Gordon on 2/24/99 at 00:00 (005044)

Have you changed your diet? I beleive that there may be a link between diet or digestive problems and these types of problems (at least for some of us). Have you heard of the leaky gut syndrome in which sometimes particles of food pass into our blood system without complete digestion?
Does your house have copper tubing and have you had a toxcicity test (hair).
Do you get sore neck, carpal tunnel, etc.?

There has got to be a commmon thread that makes this type of injury difficult to heal.

Note: I used to take 1000 C at a time 4 times a day but after about 6 months it started to make my bladder get sore so be careful. Some people get the crystal form and dilute it in water and sip it through the day.

HI Gordon, I thought I had just about every conceivable test, but the hair toxicity test you mention is new to me. What kind of doctor/practitioner does it?
Thx

Gordon,

Well, thought I was doing well for the last couple of weeks (that's why I've been away from the message board) but just the other night I woke up with a very sore ankle about 1am. Got so bad I had to take some Advil. Didn't help. When I stood on it it shot pain clear up my leg. Must of strained it but cant remember doing anything that would hurt it? That was last thrusday and this is Monday. Still hurts some, causing the bottom of my foot to hurt now.

As for diet. My diet has got to heck in a handbasket so to speak. About 3 years ago I developed a bad alergic reaction to dairy. I cant touch the stuff. Before I use to drink a gallon of milk every other day! Missed dairy at first but my wife has learned how to deal with out it(I miss pizza tho) We now use lots of Yogurt on everything from tacos to frozed substitues for ice cream. Not having the dairy is actually better for you except not getting the calcium. I think that is where my problem lies. I'm getting the same thing with my elbow. I drive for a living and rest my left elbow on the armrest continually. It is so sore that I cant even touch it to anything. Sometimes just putting on my jacket will make it hurt. I now wear a elbow pad most of the time to keep from bumping it. Again, I think it is from a lack of calcium in my bones and muscles. I now take a 600 mg subliment every morning plus citracal for the last 6 months. I think my feet and elbow are improving but VERY slowly.

The stretches you and others suggested also helped. Unlike most others, heat really makes my feet feel better. I soak my feet in the hottest watter I can stand while typing on the computer or watching TV and boy do they feel better the next day. Not right away but the next day what an improvement!

Well Gordon, that's about all I can think of for now.
