See A Doctor Questions
I've been suffering from Lyme disease x 5 years. Antibiotics and other treatments have not helped and I've only gotten worse. I'm 11 days into the Paleo diet and I'm having what feels like severe die off and flaring of symptoms. Is this to be... (more)
I've been thinking back to all my visits during adulthood to the doctor or hospital and it dawned on me that most all of them can be traced back to poor dietary choices. Sure I had a minor surgery for an accident or two and some stitches but... (more)
So first of all I want to say that I realize that no one on the internet can solve my problems and I should really see a professional, but right now i'm on very thin ice and I just really need advice. Basically I guess you could say iv'e fallen... (more)
I can't recall the last time I saw a doctor for a general health check up, it might have been over a decade ago when I changed employers and insurance companies. Probably the last time I had my blood lipids tested. No clue what the numbers were... (more)
My insurance covers only one doctor's appointment per year, and I can't decide if I should get tested for celiac (and know once and for all if I actually have celiac or just gluten sensitivity) or get my hormone profiles checked out, because I... (more)
Over the past few months, whenever I have a particularly iron-heavy meal or series of meals (oysters, beef liver, red meat in general), I'll often have a bowel movement or two with some bright red blood in the bowl. I also get beeturia after... (more)
About a year and a half ago I was shoveling snow off a roof. One of the times I was shoveling, I felt like I pulled something in my chest. It hurt. The right side of my chest now has been cracking when I stretch it, and hurts when I move my... (more)
I'd at least try the doctor to help figure out what is wrong. Whether you choose to heed his advice or do your own "natural" remedy is up to you once you have a diagnosis.
Though I've fully embraced my inner 'doctor google', and although I very much appreciate the collective experience and practical suggestions offered here, I'm ready to see a doctor for the following issues. However, I don't know what type of... (more)
How should we answer questions that may be beyond the level we should be dealing with? How do we know what that level is? (brought on by a particular question, but really applies to a lot of questions I've read here)
Just throw out the first thing that comes to mind, it's pretty silly to look for answers to serious medical questions at "Paleo Hacks," what's next "Hack My Brain Tumor"? People link to photos of their poop for God's sake.
Among my digestive issues, fatigue, poor skin quality and dark circles I have swollen glands in my neck that have been there for years, mostly on the right side, they swell and lessen from time to time Is there any connection here? Should I be... (more)

Two and a half years ago I went to the ER with chest pain (accompanied by sweating, shortness of breath, overall odd feeling). Troponin levels were elevated and I was dx as having a NSTEMI. My heart cath showed no blockage and I've since done a... (more)
I started Paleo 3 weeks ago to be more healthy. Generally I had a pretty good diet and lift 4 days a week. I've been having real bad sleep issues for 6-12 months and for last 6 weeks or so have not been able to maintain sleep for longer than... (more)
I assume you are under treatment by a doctor if you are getting a sleep study done? Remember, not everything is caused by diet. You should make sure your doctor checks your thyroid too. Also, you might want to try seeing a therapist. There is an... (more)
I'm a 15 yr old guy. I've been paleo for about 1 or 2 years. Before that I was on the standard industrial diet, but I wasn't fat. I reckon now I'm pretty healthy, except that I feel tired all the time. I also have this brain fog that I can't get... (more)
Q1: Are you eating enough food? At 15 you're still growing. You need a lot more calories than someone who's 38 and sedentary and trying to lose weight. Paleo food can be very satiating...perhaps too satiating. Try putting everything you eat... (more)
I've been paleo for a couple months. About 30 mins ago I stupidly ate 1/3 of a cake which I baked a few weeks ago then stuck in the freezer. It was one of those Betty Crocker box mix things. Made with lots of vegetable oil and conventional eggs.... (more)
Hey, I am new to paleo, just about a week or so. I have noticed, what may be a disturbing change in my bowel movements. 1. I hardly go anymore, and there isn't much when I do (I have heard this is normal so I am not really concerned). What I am... (more)
Sounds normal to me while your body is adjusting. Add a bit more fat, make sure you are hydrated and take 200-400 mg Magnsium Citrate before bed to help avoid constipation.
I'm starting a new relationship and just found out he has a shellfish allergy! I am a shrimp and crab lover! Can I eat she'll fish at all? Does anyone know how long it could stay in my system? Help!!!!
My mother has been doing the leptin reset faithfully for the last few weeks. Even though she's lost 26 lbs. (she started at over 600 lbs., with a host of chronic issues and a history of yo-yo dieting, which contributed to her getting to be this... (more)
Hello, I am a bit concerned, I went off the birth control pill in January after being on for about 10 years. I know that it is normal for your body to take a while to begin menstruating on its own, so i am wondering if it is normal... I havent... (more)
I've read so many posts on here about people overcoming binging after being paleo. I read them with a feverish hope that I too, could overcome this horrible monster. The problem is that many people here who binge say that they craved something,... (more)
My lymphocyte count has been depressed for at least the last couple years. So far no cause has been discovered. The main evaluation I've had done is screening for lupus and Hughes' syndrome (various antibodies, CRP, ESR, lupus anticoagulant),... (more)
Crestor prescription runs out Friday. The earliest I can see my doctor for a refill is Monday. I was going to "get his advice" about going off Crestor for another few days, and then take a blood test (been 99% paleo for 40 days). That would be... (more)
At the beginning of the week I got a killer cold/fever combination- chills, sweating, clogged sinuses, the works. The fever broke after a day or so, and my sinuses are almost cleared up, but I've been left with some unpleasant diarrhea since about... (more)
Okay, this feels like a dumb question, but what do you ask your doctor for when you want your vitamin levels checked out? I went to an Endrocronologist once that said, 'everything's fine,' but he refused to show many documentation. Is this... (more)
