Overactive Startle Reflex?!

It is a point of contention between my husband and I because I tend to snap at him, but I don't mean to and I try to help him understand that that it is neither his fault nor mine. It just is. Please tell me that I am not the only one with fibromyalgia who is easily startled!!

NHS Dentists have gone astray. We're all living in 'dental deserts' 🦷

Anyone Brits finding themselves kicked off the NHS list at their dentists in England? And given no warning?

I've heard there was a shortage, but this is ridiculous. The costs of private treatments are so high 😭

And no plans from the government to sort it out 🙄

Literally no dentist is taking new NHS patients and if you were on a list -quickly check if you haven't been kicked off!

Anyone with Interstitial cystitis, what did it take for you to be finally diagnosed?

Anyone with Interstitial cystitis, what did it take for you to be finally diagnosed?

Had 6 courses of antibiotics, the current course is meant to last for 3 months.

Been a couple of weeks, but still dealing with: incontinence, taking ages to pee, intense and debilitating bladder pain... Exhaustion

My body is knackered and I really don't feel like the antibiotics are helping 😭

...and if I have to drink another cup of cranberry juice I'm going to hurt someone lol.

The Urologist discharged me with the latest batch of antibiotics and a quick fat shame (thanks doc 🙃).

Terrified about being fired from my job and failing my uni course 🙁

Does anyone here have #limbdystonia , UTI’s, #Overactive bladder and ringing in one or both ears?

FND enter my life in 2008, I wasn’t diagnosed until 2010 and I have dealt with many different types of symptoms, but these past few months have been hitting me pretty hard. In 2017 I woke up with my toes curled inwards. Long story short, I haven’t walked in two years, now I am getting hit hard with multiple symptoms, #severeendometriosis (on a wait list for surgery), ringing in my left ear (#Tintinitus ) since 3/25/2020, UTI for the whole month of May and I have been symptomatic every since. Had a ultrasounds of my pelvis bladder and my bladder/kidneys, waiting on my results (PCP, said it was #overactedbladder ). This is too much.


Doctors appointment not going how I thought

I have been dealing with a health problem for ten years without any diagnosis. I have seen so many doctors, spend a lot of money and have gotten no where. I ignored it, as I can go months between flare ups. But when it does flare, it is incredibly uncomfortable. This is a bladder problem, by the way. There are three possibilities; #InterstitialCystitis #PelvicFloorDysfunction #Overactive bladder . However, due to the other symptoms I feel in addition to the frequency make me believe it isn’t overactive bladder. The doctor I saw today seemed far too eager to dismiss the rest of my symptoms and my ten years of discomfort. Ten years of missing out on life because I need a bathroom everywhere I go. Ten years of missing road trips with friends. All my hopes that this doctor could help me went right out the window when he went straight to asking if I wanted him to write me a prescription for overactive bladder meds without any exam or diagnosis. I’m so upset by this and I’m feeling hopeless and no closer to a solution. What am I to do? I have a difficult time even working. How am I supposed to just live this way?
