- should i be forced to cover my arm and neck. i live with a muslim but feel confined with my arms covered.?
- Q: I live with friends He is muslim his wife isn’t, I currently don’t come out of my room as he expects me to cover my arms and legs while he is fasting. i wear loose pants but cannot tolerate my arms being covered, I never have been able to do this as i sweat too easily and skin starts itching with rash. He is upset that i won’t come out of my room and insists i come out sit and talk and cover myself completely. I don’t show any clevage or legs but refuse to cause myself discomfort by wearing sleves.. I understand he isn’t allowed to look at another woman but why should i be forced to cover my arms when i’m not muslim?
- A: Sounds like an unreasonable request to me. If you were muslim and he thought you should obey him they it would be different but it is not fair that you should live in discomfort. He should be able to control in what way he is looking at you and you have rights to believe and dress the way you want to.Maybe you need to find a new place to live where you have a bit of liberty.
- How can I get rid of my eczema?
- Q: I was born in Puerto Rico, and had an extreme case of eczema. I used to scratch my neck, arms, legs and the lower part of my shin. I used to scratch when I was sleeping, and in the morning, the sheets were soaked in blood. So my parents took me to a dermatologist and they prescribed cream cortisone, injected me with cortisone, preylone and a whole bunch of other steroids. And the side effects were evident. I was over weight and swollen, and the medications did not do anything. I was still itching. So my parents took me off of the meds and, well, i itched. About 2 years ago, my parents took me to a naturopath and he said that I was allergic to wheat and a whole bunch of other things and said I needed to go on a diet. So I did. I eliminated wheat and took all of these natural medications and it worked. My skin cleared up and I stopped itching. But unfortunately, I quit the diet and I am back to where I started, itching like a dog with flees. Now it is the winter time, and I literally have open gashes on my neck because of itching. I cannot move my neck without feeling pain. And taking a bath? forget it. It hurts to much. I feel kind of hopeless. I’ve talked to people and all they have said why don’t you stop itching? but it is not that simple. I can’t not itch. It is like I have to even though I do not want to. And I am very self conscious about it. I have low self esteem because of it.
- A: Wow, eczema… wheat gluten allergy…. it looks like a couple of paragraphs that I would have written! I’ve had eczema since I was basically a toddler. In the last few years I think its gotten worse (I’m 22) and I have so many scabs on my legs and they take forever to heal. I went to a naturopath (like you mentioned you did) over the summer and went on a gluten-free diet, and took a lot of exfoliating baths. My skin was definitely better (though far far far from flawless) than it had been in a long time. A couple of months ago I went off the diet, finding it too restrictive….. and its winter here (bitter cold, Canadian winter) and my skin is in the awful scabby state again. (On my legs. My arms have a little bit but not as many scars).I definitely suffer from low self-esteem, a major contributor being my eczema. (I haven’t worn shorts in public since I was about 4 years old, when my mother dressed me lol). In many ways I’ve given up on my skin, because its been 22 years of never-clear skin. I realize the wheat allergy is probably still a contributing issue but I really find it too much of a burden (expensive and restrictive) to cut out of my diet, lol. I still get itchy in the night (I, like you, wake up with little blood patches on my sheets. I’m so used to it by now, I hardly even notice them) most of the time. If you can get exfoliating materials to get rid of dry skin… this should help a lot. See if you can find something that would help exfoliate while being gentle on your skin. Oh! Also, I’ve read and been told that taking zinc supplements (along with vitamin C to help your system absorb the zinc) helps with healing. I think the supplements over the summer really helped as well, though I stopped taking them because they can be very strong for the stomach (I will start taking smaller doses, and with a large meal). Anyway, hope this helped. Our skin certainly likes to torture us, doesn’t it?
- I Need Some Brainstorming Re: a Rheumatological Issue?
- Q: When I was 26 (23 years ago) my knees started to hurt. I went to the Doc and they did a blood test and said that I have Rheumatoid Arthritis. I was satisfied with that diagnosis. It definitely seemed plausible at the time. Over the years the joint pain now involves both hands and wrists as well as my knees and my lower back.But the damnedest thing happened….I have Carpal Tunnel in both hands (have had it since my late 20’s). I went to have a carpal Tunnel release on the right hand, and my Osteopath told me that I did not have RA and I’m thinking, “why do my freaking joints hurt?” At this point I am totally confused…Keep in mind that I have tested positive for RA since my first diagnosis up to the present.During all of these years I have had various issues with my skin: itchy patches, lately on my chest, on neck behind both ears, on my back just under my neck, and on my scalp, scaly skin on both breasts, around my nostrils and in the center of my forehead just above the eyebrows, in the hollows of both cheeks on my face and across the bridge of the nose. Even the insides of my ears itch. It started out as just itchy patches on my neck behind both ears. The itchy spots don’t seem to bleed or scab over and they are hardly noticeable except for the change in skin texture and some skin blotchiness that doesn’t go away- the skin feels a little spongy when compared to the surrounding skin.I recently found out (after waking up one morning out of the blue with cherry red eyes) that my tear ducts have all but stopped making tears – I am on Restasis and Patanol (for allergies, which was also discovered during this time). My throat and mouth get easily dried out.Over the years I have also had short episodes of numbness and tingling in the extremities – one time (in my 20’s) my left leg was almost totally numb for two days, luckily I have not had an episode that extreme since. The the odd numbness here and there continues.Now I am not only experiencing pain in the joints in my hand and wrist, I am experiencing stiffness in them, too. I fumble and drop things. It is tough to manage working with keys and other objects because it feels like I am trying to work through several pairs of gloves.I had a small ring of fungus on my feet for several years that although annoying, it did not become larger. Now all of a sudden it is trying to take over my feet and crawl up my leg.I have had, over the last 20 years four ANA (Anti-Nuclear Antibody) tests and they have all shown neg for possible Lupus – my last one was two years ago. All of the stuff that is happening anew and getting worse has been happening within the last year.I (supposedly) have RA but little to no joint damage after 23 years….I do have Hidradenitis Suppurativa (a skin condition that researchers suspect may have autoimmune elements) – this is apart from the itchy patches. The HS is hereditary.Hep C, (got it from cleaning up some blood after an accident back in ’84) but my Gastroenterologist says that my liver is functioning well. I do not drink and I seem to have no outward ill effect from that.Asthmatic Bronchitis.I can’t seem to walk a perfectly straight line and when I do walk, I tend to list to the left in my gait.My hair is like wiry and dry. I also get cold sores but breakouts are rare.Worse yet, my brain is fuzzy – I’ll be talking to someone and stop, trying to think of, in many cases a very simple word – this is happening more and more. For instance, me and a friend of mine were in WalMart getting some stuff for my new apartment and I needed a laundry basket but could not think of the phrase “laundry basket”. Stuff like that..I just am in a fog trying to recall simple words and phrases.I am on Paxil for a moderate case of depression, but hell, I’m thinking of getting off of it to see if my memory improves..I’m OK with the mild bouts of the blues as long as a I can think and recall. By the way, no problem recalling events whether present or past.I also take Hydrochlorothiazide for blood pressure – my pressure’s good.I don’t know what to think except that my immune system is really pissed with me.I see a Rheumatologist later this month (first one I have ever seen in my life and I hope he is a good one, ’cause I don’t know WTF is going on.Any ideas? Mature answers please.P.S. No nookie in 6 years (for those who like to chime in with ‘you got AIDS’ and such….I have also had a hysterectomy two years ago, so no menstrual issues…No hot flashes, Menopause is OK, no hormones necessary (yet)No, the Osteopath just did the surgery on my right wrist – I was surprised that he did not do any testing; maybe he was working from previous test data, if any.By the way, thanks for the links! 😀
- A: You might want to be check for Psoriatic arthritis with is also an auto immune disease. One thing that you need to real that RA will affect all your organs that includes your heart and lungs as well. As long as you are taking preventative care you should not suffer from the damage RA can do. I was diagnosed with JRA when I was 3 yrs old and back in those days (50’s) they used a lot of Cortisone in all my joint which did not help really and affect my growth somewhat. Be sure that you list every issue and symptom that you are experiencing to let the Rheumatologist know. You also may want to see a Dermatologist to get a check on the psoriasis, but one that specializes in that area. Check out info that I have listed. Did your Osteopath do the same RA tests again?
