  1. Please Help!

    I have had the same fears when I started getting night sweats at around 38. (I'm42 now.) Mine were so bad for a time I just knew I was doomed! I think it was hormone related, as I noticed it definitely got worse one week a month. I started taking a really good vitamin, along with extra selenium and magnesium and they are almost gone. I still have them once a month, but no where near as bad as before. I am not sure which supplement made it better - the selenium or the magnesium - but I really believe it is related to one of them, as I can tell a difference when I am not so vigilant with the supplements. You might give that a try, just be sure to read what the maximum daily selenium is- I think 400? - and make sure that your vitamin doesn't have alot in it. I have read that selenium has a low toxicity level, so be sure to check the amounts. And you are def not too young for the beginning stages of menopause. I know it's hard not to worry, but the majority of my friends from age 28-48 have night sweats, and none of them have cancer. Hope you feel better soon. I have a 4 year old and worry about cancer all the time too. I feel ya!
  2. Does anyone else get bloating relief from Phenergan? My bloating is considerably better since going gluten free, but I am still having occasional issues at almost 5 months gluten-free. Sometimes I can pinpoint that it might be CC, other times I can't figure it out. Does not seem to be dairy or soy. Anyway, Phenergan almost always helps majorly. I have lost as much of 8 pounds in a week of bloat by taking Phenergan a few times a week. The doctor says that it makes no sense that it would work for bloating, because it slows down the empyting of the stomach. I know it does, though, because I can actually lose weight by taking it, and my clothes can fit again. I always say it feels like someone took my stomach out and washed it and loved it and put it back. Just curious if anyone else has this same results from Phenergan, or can maybe tell me why it works.
