WOE: JUDDD
Start Date: March, 2009
C'Marie, I am so happy you are hearing yet another voice affirming less pain in joints, etc, with JUDDD. I know that has been your quest, but I could only offer that it helped with my respiratory health, so I'm glad to see Steph's report join many others.

Steph, what happiness. Cool, cool beans. Jenny is so right - it's the inflammation that's at the top of the list for so many ills and if we can quell the inflammation, much good will come of it.

To all who can sometimes hear their heartbeat when their head is on a pillow lying down - this is not an unusual phenomenon! I learned about this in high school for goodness sake - any doctor should have heard about this many times and not disbelieve it. Dismiss it - possibly, if he felt it was common and was not concerned.

From Wikipedia:

Some people experience a sound that beats in time with the pulse (pulsatile tinnitus, or vascular tinnitus).[17] Pulsatile tinnitus is usually objective in nature, resulting from altered blood flow or increased blood turbulence near the ear (such as from atherosclerosis or venous hum,[18]) but it can also arise as a subjective phenomenon from an increased awareness of blood flow in the ear.[17] Rarely, pulsatile tinnitus may be a symptom of potentially life-threatening conditions such as carotid artery aneurysm[19] or carotid artery dissection.[20] Pulsatile tinnitus may also indicate vasculitis, or more specifically, giant cell arteritis. Pulsatile tinnitus may also be an indication of idiopathic intracranial hypertension.[21]

fixin that is wonderful for your dh.

Oh, gee, Jenny - trying to remember my high school days. We were studying the circulatory system, and that we feel our heartbeat as we take a pulse, or we hear it through a stethoscope. But the teacher said you might hear it when you are lying down, too, and I'm almost certain she said when you lie on your left side it's more likely because your heart is on the left.

A bunch of hands popped up and in our classroom of 30 or more teens, maybe 7 or 8 were saying they knew what she was talking about and had experienced this. (This was in the day of absolute attention to the teacher and raised hands before speaking, lol. I am not a spring chicken. ) As far as causes in such a young crowd, not much was said except that it was common, and we moved on. Of course, this was a high school classroom and not a doctor's classroom!

Steph, this is sooo great! I know I hate taking any meds I absolutely don't need to, so to find a natural cure must feel so great! Crossing fingers that your BP meds will be weaned and discontinued soon.

Yikes!

I sometimes hear my heartbeat when lying down on my side. Not always. When I was hardcare low carbing, I would always hear and feel my heartbeat after I had eaten sugar. Maybe I still will on JUDDD - haven't had much sugar since starting, although I'm adding back some better quality carbs.

I have been treated so badly by physicians in the past that I now always dress up to the nines whenever I go in to the doctors. Suit, jewelry, make-up, perfume, the whole shebang. And then I bring my white knight for back up.

Since adopting this practice, which rather forces people to look at you more like a human being, I have received better medical care.
Sadly, this is so true and also holds true for people with mental illness. Some doctors are very quick to dismiss serious health issues based on being overweight or based on the diagnosis of a psychiatric illness.

I totally get the "dressing up" to go to the doctor. I remember when the pain first got very bad in my back and neck and I was going to the doctor for the 3rd time in a week. I could barely walk, but I shaved my legs and put on a skirt to go see him. Back then (2007) I was actually thin- 115lbs tops. I was still maintaining the 110 pound loss from 2004, but still had that "fear" from the years 1999- 2003 when I weighed 230 lbs and felt that my medical concerns were not taken seriously due to my weight.

I have a condition called Allopurinol Hypersensitivity Syndrome. It's pretty scary, but fine as long as I don't take Allopurinol, which I obviously did NOT know at the time. Anyway, I was severely reacting to the meds in the middle of the night, in horrible pain, and DH "insisted" I go to the ER. I "insisted" I take a shower and shave my legs first. He thought I was insane. I won.

Anyway, when we were seen in the ER, they drew blood, figured out I was within days of total organ failure, and my platelets were all out of whack. I had this crazy rash on my legs, and the doctor actually got ticked off at me for shaving my legs. Apparently, the rash was blood pooling under the skin and if I had cut myself, I probably would have bled to death!

Thankfully, I've had no need to visit an ER since then, but I guarantee you I will NOT be concerned about the hair on my legs next time.

Goodness... I'm glad you didn't cut yourself... I hope to be less concerned in the future, but I'm not sure I'm there yet...

And Jacci, we use the NHS which, while both free and great in an emergency, is not quite the same as US polite private health care.

I have had my free flu and pneumonia jabs today, and I am happy to report that my experience could not have been more efficient or pleasant.

I must admit you are not so wrong there Cindy, when I first had my bone problem I had an mri scan done in an NHS hospital, bearing in mind I had just broken my wrist and had been told there was something growing in my bone that could well be nasty I was a very upset and in pain Jacci. Radiolgist asked me if I could move my arm a certain way to which I replied sorry I cant and then she moved it herself, I nearly collapsed and it was all a total nightmare. I had the 2nd mri done privately and it was a total different story.

The NHS can be wonderful, dont get me wrong and we are lucky to have it but just occasionally it doesnt go right, the nurse I had today just had no bedside manner at all.

Hey ho, it only increased abit so I suppose it could be worse!! x

Oh, 1969 was well before the 1973 HMO act...I wasn't around back then, but it seems HMOs have changed everything...it often seems it's more about profit than providing good care, and almost everyone is overworked and grumpy.
It's always a surprise when I find a doctor whose receptionists & nurses are in a good mood!

I must be lucky, and I hope I'm not jinksing myself by saying this, but my (U.S.) doctors and physicians assistants are wonderful. Support staff iffy and you never know what you'll get, but the pros are great. During my mom's recent breast cancer treatment, every single doctor and 90% of the nurses have been so amazing. It has renewed my skeptical view of medical professionals recently.

Warning...continued threadjack on the state of U.S. healthcare!!

Yes, soooo sad about the state of medical professionals. Unfortunately our hands are tied for the most part. I have been in healthcare for 26+ years and this is so not what I signed up for. I used to be proud to say I worked in healthcare, to know my patients well and how they could best be served. Now I barely have time some days to say hello to my patients. Makes me sad in my heart. Sniff.

How exciting !

I'm just wondering what my results would be like... you know how they changed the standard so that 120/80 is considered "borderline" now instead of "normal" (so drug companies can sell more... sigh... )? So, I'm still fine, but man OH man, would I love to have results like Steph's!

Maybe one day

Congrats Steph!
