Does anyone have trouble with rectal burning made worse when sitting in the power chair? Multiple cushion combinations have been tried and every over the counter remedy has been tried. Prescription level lidocaine and pain relievers including Norco. I'm currently on gabapentin and Lyrica in...
First, let me start by saying that I am here due to symptoms that have been concerning me for almost month. They are new symptoms that have arisen from other symptoms that have been occurring for over three months now, starting at the end of November.
It all started when I had two bowls of...
I have had 2 accidents now and I just dont understand how it's not ALS related. Both now I have been in the bathroom on time but as soon as I see the toilet I cant hold it anymore and it all comes out. Is this normal? Plus my hair is so greasy and my hair on my head and eyelashes are getting...
My husband, Frank, has had increasing neck flexion (chin resting on chest) and tilt to the right. His head is now so far forward that the wheelchair headrest supplies no support. He has a neck brace but even this no longer helps.

Over 2 years into this disease, and one of my husband’s big problems has been abdominal cramping, bloating, diarrhea, constipation- you name it. Hospice has recommended everything you can name. Not much helped. Each day in mid-afternoon, he would get abdominal cramps and just feel awful. He...
My Pals started a downward spiral 30 days ago. Could no longer talk, appetite diminished, slept 14-15 hours at night and often a long nap in the afternoon. I asked twice if she wanted our granddaughters to come decorate for Christmas and never got a response. I had them cone out anyway and she...
I wasn't sure if I would post this at all. After deciding I had no idea where to post it but, for me, it feels like a rant/complaint so here it is.
