Re: Lyrica: recently started

Hi dude - sorry for the late reply. I stopped taking Lyrica fairly early in my treatment. I've recently been diagnosed with chronic anxiety and low mood (nothing new there obviously, I just decided to talk to someone about it). I was first prescribed Citalopram which made me even more anxious and ca...

I've tried the RIDO and the Selle SMP. The Selle SMP rocks.

Oh - I certainly don't think that. Thanks for explaining why rice is well tolerated though - it was that bit that has never added up for me.

Re: PROGRESS UPDATE NO GLUTEN/WHEAT

Ah - right - so it's not really the switch to sedentary farming, but the toxic properties of some grasses.

Re: PROGRESS UPDATE NO GLUTEN/WHEAT

The 10,000 years thing is an interesting point, but it begs the question as to why rice is well tolerated. I had a quick look at Wikipedia and it appears to have been cultivated for less than 10,000 years.

Re: cp pain goes when i get another illness

Bad luck - I seem to have managed to avoid Norovirus and I've been back and forth to hospital for the last week and a half!

I get the opposite reaction. When I have a cold or whatever, my symptoms can flare a touch.

That's not to say that happened in my first couple of year...

Re: Starting to second guess what I have

Like I said guys I don't know why I 'm doubting diagnosis or just paranoid I have IC but can't seem to get it out of my head. I don't want to go through testing for IC as I think it is all in my head and I have no burning in bladder or during urination. Just venting in a way and just thought I woul...

Ah - I didn't realise this is from the BPSA forum. Now I am surprised - I thought it was one of those day-time-TV pundits.
