The Bipolar forum is full of caring people who are very easy to talk to. They will embrace your daughter's situation and give you some much needed support.

Might I suggest that you start a new thread of your very own, rather than this post, which is tagged on to another thread. This way, it'll be easier for people to see your introduction. To start a new thread, simply exit out of this dialogue so that you are back at the original 'New Members' forum. You should see a button at the top left which says "New Thread". Click on that and you'll have started your own thread.

Just holler if you have any questions or need help finding your way around!


thank you I had no idea how to do that

HELLO from W.By george Tennessee !!!
I have been dealing with many varying symptoms for over a decade. Always to be told , old age (currently 47) & stenosis.
For years the trend of the sytem was to just medicate & ignore but never actually treat the problem. Now in the last 2 yrs. , I feel like the trend is "Pain Management", which for a year was a joke & a huge flop when Doc. dropped me as a patient for no legitimate reason & left me high & dry ( no treatment,no meds(cold turkey) no compassion).
My goal here is to seek info & knowledge !!!
Learn more about reading & understanding my current MRI's !!!
Possibly even help others from my experiences in todays career patienting.
No pun intended , but after some time of being a bump on a log , ya have to find something you'r good at !!! VISITING DOCTORS
THANX & I will try to remain civil as long as I am treated civil !!!

Will speak more soon. Take care. Jenny.

Default Me too! Got here recently,

The reason i have come here is I have a 23 year old daughter that was diagnosed with bipolar at age 16. Sinse then we have had many different meds and Dr.s, The meds help with her mood swings yet she still had impulsive and irregular behaviors. Recently she was duel diagnosed with bipoalr along with a borderline personality disorder. She lives with me as well as her 2 children, I am tired and wore out and fear she will never be self sufficient so i ask you, am I in the right place?
This intends to be a Quick Reply- hope I am doing it right, I am having trouble so far.... What brings me here is to exchange experiences on this strange sensation I have on the left side of my face, no pain, no sinus problems though.
Hope I will get some replies. I am so thankful to Lara, the moderator who kindly gave me an orientation on how to work on this website. Thank you.

You're welcome Maryellen.

Have you been diagnosed with Temporal Arteritis or is that what you're thinking is the problem?

Do you have any autoimmune disorders?

Do you have any other problems apart from the strange feeling in your face? e.g. headaches, jaw problems/dental problems etc.?

If we know a little more then we can guide you in the right direction.

I was just checking the
Forum search feature for temporal arteritis to see if I could find further information for you. There are lots of posts throughout many forums that mention the words "temporal arteritis" but they're not all in one forum and some are quite old.

There are some in the
Trigeminal Neuralgia Forum where you posted yesterday. I also wondered if you'd seen the
Useful website thread - TN Forum to see if that sounds familiar to what you are experiencing.

At some point it might be helpful for you to start a new thread and that way you might get more feedback.

Default Many thanks, Lara

I was diagnosed of Temporal Arteritis in Jan2013. Under treatment immediately before the biopsy. The first specialist I saw told me I could be suddenly totally blind. The strange sensation going around/over the left eye is today stronger than never. Never had sinus. MRI ok.
Neither the specialists, neither eye doctors know anything about it! Some NT members in old posts described it exactly as I have though- this brought me here. I intend to open a new thread.
Your reply meant a lot to me besides being quite clear and helpful. My heart says Thank You, Lara.

Smile Dealing with neuropathy

Hello, my name is Gregg. I am 66 years old, retired, and have peripheral neuropathy and diabetes 2. I experience shooting pains in my fingers and from my buttocks down to my feet. I've had this pain and numbness since June. What I've done is to constantly massage my thighs, calves, and feet through out the day. Because I am constantly using my hands, I've slowly progressed from not being able to write, to being able to do so clearly and with more and more control. I try all kinds of activities to increase my hands sensitivity: picking up minute objects (like seeds), shuffling a deck of cards, chopping up vegetables or fruit, squeezing terra-putty. I believe that the constant use and rubbing and massaging activates the veins and the damaged nerves. I've graduated from being unable to walk and had to use a wheel chair, graduating to arm crutches and now use a cane. Although I still feel pain and numbness, I've noticed that my feet are beginning to look normal and have lost their puffy, swollen look.
I've also been eating healthy and exercising. All this plus the conviction that I will get better helps.
