Patient discussion about suggestion
Q. What are your suggestions? My sister is quite athletic. She loves to go riding. She is very fussy and irritable otherwise. She was in her 50s when she had a fall from the horse. For the past 5 years, she has been complaining of pain in her knee, upper buttocks, thighs, shoulder and elbow. Initially I thought it was to do with the fall and her age. Now she is having a very bad constipation and feels bloated. This is making her depressed. I will be taking her to a doctor soon. But I feel that she is showing some signs of fibromyalgia. Since all these symptoms point to this problem, what are your suggestions?
The symptoms could be from arthritis which comes with her age.
Many women begin to have problems with osteoporosis in middle age.
Some medications for cholesterol have side effects with symptoms like you describe concerning pain in lower legs.
As far as depression from the change in lifestyle, she could consider going riding in a buggy with her horse. The riding could help with alleviating stress and help make her life more enjoyable again. Being around horses and animals is good therapy for many people. I know horses like apples and are easy to make friends with. If she has not been out and about with horses lately, some time there could be a very good thing. This is why visiting a zoo is so comforting to many or having a pet.
I don't know if anything in this reply will help anyone. I just had to give it a try.
Q. Do you have any suggestions for me? My dad keeps repeating himself the whole time about his past achievements. He goes on and on about how he helped to open a prestigious sports club that had produced many athletes and rugby players. He dwells on the past too much. He will clean the floor several times. He will yell at children sitting at side of the roads. He eats too many sweet things. He does not sleep at night or if he sleeps it’s towards the early hours in the morning. But he does wakes up early in the morning and will start to prepare omelets for us. I don’t know how he gets this much energy to work and talk. But this worries me. Is he heading towards a bipolar condition? Do you have any suggestions for me?
