Patient discussion about tipping

Q. Any tips for coping with fibromyalgia?

A. I agree with the fact getting a better understanding helps but for me coping is finding support, someone you can talk to that is understanding. Accepting the fact you have limits...you can't do all the things you use to in the same way. REST...nap durning the day if possible so many people say this interfers with your sleep at night BUT for 2 years I wouldn't lie down and rest b/c I slept so poorly at night latey I have found resting if even 30 minutes helps me make it through my day. My medications help so talk to your doctor and I also if I can't nap durning the day sit and read to give my body a break b/c somedays it is so hard to move! 20 minute walks, warm baths, and herbal tea to help me relax and try to get as much sleep as possible at night. Hope this helps and Good Luck!

A. "A lack of estrogen in post-menopausal women prevents the absorption and utilization of calcium and is the single most important factor in the development of osteoporosis in older women."

and because Arimidex lowering the estrogen level even more- it has even bigger effect. so you developed osteoporosis.

Q. Are there any tips for my son with ADHD. My 8 years old son is with ADHD and it is hectic to make him study or carry out the assignments. At times I used to feel why should he study? He finds it difficult to study. He always takes shelter under nonstop excuses almost typed in his mind and I have tried to convince him with chocolates and pizzas but that cannot be the permanent solution to his problem. Are there any tips for my son with ADHD.
