Re: How Can We Get More Participation on this Site ?

I am sorry you have had such an unfortunate experience on the OT site; I have found it to be very helpful. Of course, the Administrator is correct, if you write and no one checks the forum, your post will lie dormant until it is read. I am happy you had more success on Facebook, but don't give up on...

Re: How is everyone?

Hello everyone, This is a change of subject, but I thought this would be the best place to write this because so many people check here. It is with a heavy heart I write this, but I thought those of you who knew her would want to know. Our dear friend, Patty George, from Alaska, lost her battle with...

Re: How Can We Get More Participation on this Site ?

Hello Freya,

I live in Florida, but I think there are people who live in England who are on this site. You might try posting on "How is Everyone"? There is a lot of communication there.

If I can answer any questions for you, I would be happy to try.

Re: How Can We Get More Participation on this Site ?

Hello Shakeylegs, You didn't say where you live; it might be helpful to others to know so if there is someone in your area you could get together. I live in Florida and have met and become friends with many people on this site. Some were passing through our area and others I met at the Clinical Tria...

Re: "Participate in a support group"

Hello all.... Just checking the Forum and found all the posts above. I live a loooong way from all of you; I live in Florida. I have had OT for over 27 years! It started with few symptoms. Some weakness in my legs, and balance poor (however, I also have vertigo), but they are different. As I progres...

Re: How is everyone?

Hello all, I rented an oxygen machine and have been using it for almost two weeks now. After the first two days, I THOUGHT it was working for me (I wanted it so badly to work), I think I 'willed' my body to stand still, and using 'mind over matter', I could for about one minute, then I had to sit. B...

Re: The use of statins to reduce cholesterol levels for patients with OT

Hello, it's me again! Regarding cholesterol and taking statins, my husband can't take them, they caused him severe muscle cramps, but our doctor prescribed Crestor for me and I have no problems with the medication. My cholesterol is 147; Triglycerides are 101; LDL is 37.8 and my HDL is 89.0; so it i...

Re: The use of statins to reduce cholesterol levels for patients with OT

Hello all, I, too, suffer from leg cramps at night, as does my husband, and we have found taking about a teaspoon of plain yellow mustard, (French's) along with a glass of water usually does the trick for us. Since mustard is a bit strong; only take a small amount into your mouth and follow it with ...

Re: How is everyone?

Thank you for the information regarding pure oxygen and balanced oxygen, Theresaann. I had mentioned in an earlier post for Mike to give us the balance of oxygen and air. I am still eager to find out if I can try it. I am at the stage I will try almost anything that may help. I have had OT for 25 ye...

Re: How is everyone?

Hi Mike,

Do you have any further updates on your oxygen therapy? I, for one, am eager to try this and see if it helps me as well.
Any new information would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Betty

Hi Sherry, As you probably read in my blog to Trish, I have had OT for 25 years and know how you feel ~ so alone at times. But....this website is GREAT for making one feel better. We have all experienced what you have/are experiencing and will be as helpful as we can. If you have questions, just ask...

Hello to all: I was checking the website and found all of you today; I wish I had checked sooner and could address each of you, but I will start at the bottom with Trish. You wrote: I was diagnosed by my neurologist yesterday. I’m reading up on OT. Any comments on how to tell your family about your ...

Re: Off balance in the dark

Yes, I also have a problem trying to get around the dark. I have a small flashlight next to the bed, but the most help is a small night light in the bathroom . It is not bright enough to keep you awake, but enough light to help you see in the darkness. You might try that.
