Re: Excessive water intake with MS

Update on current status. Met with my neurologist yesterday. She has spoken with my rheumatologist whom has confirmed psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. With that said, I fulled the blood testing a couple of days ago for the rheumatologist and await the results to see what medication I am going to b...

Re: Excessive water intake with MS

Hi Scott, The article linked definitely sounds like what I am going through. Now, I will not this. My nephrologist indicates I don't have diabetes insipidous, but at the same time, I seem to be that challenging case. I will update everyone on my latest doctors visits as they have come in the past co...

Re: Excessive water intake with MS

Hello All, Been a little bit since I last updated. Been pretty busy getting doctors setup and starting a new job, etc. With that said, here is where I stand right this second. I saw my new neuro whom I mentioned previously is an MS specialist. We went through all of my symptoms, reviewed my latest l...

Re: Excessive water intake with MS

Hey @Scott1, I am out of ideas as well. Its why I am seeing an MS specialist. My endocrinologist doesn't see any issues. We will see what happens. It's beyond frustrating. This unexplained water influx and weight gain is getting aggravated. I keep thinking of the saying they will be able to rebuild ...

Re: Excessive water intake with MS

Thanks for the input. @Scott1, When I had the testing done, I had been off (or very little) of both laxatives for about a month. Under doctors recommendations, I have had to get back on milk of magnesia a bit because my bowels were just not doing anything of real consequence. In all honesty my diet ...

Ordered Items CBC With Differential/Platelet; Comp. Metabolic Panel (14); Thyroid Panel With TSH; Iro...

Re: Excessive water intake with MS

Good morning, I know its been a week or two since my last post. My doctor preferred I setup an appointment with him to go over the dizzying array of things going on. That said, we will be meeting this afternoon. Couple of things to report since my last posting. I have forced myself down to once a da...

Re: Excessive water intake with MS

Hi Jimmy, So, finally after long last, I got this CT scan approved and done. My doctor did a top notch job making them look foolish that's all I can say. In any event, the report I received today revealed the following: 1. There is a 3 mm. calcification in the lower pole of the right kidney consiste...

Re: Excessive water intake with MS

Hi Jimmy, I will work on picking up some of your suggestions. I still have not gotten my CT approval. My doctor has to do a peer to peer with the insurance company. In a nutshell, they are trying to stick it to me for meeting my deductible for the year already (this occurred in January). They are de...

Re: Excessive water intake with MS

jimmy, I am absolutely going to ask to have the levels you suggested test during my blood work. I will be getting this done after my CT scan (if my insurance ever stops fighting about it). I regularly have salad blends that contain dark leafy greens. We also tend to mix in spinach and such into the ...

Re: Excessive water intake with MS

Let me see what I can answer or clear up here. My diet has been going for about 8 years now. I've had my slips along the way and some changes and what have you, but by and large it has been very consistent. We are talking roughly the following. Keep in mind, I do change it up a bit. I am providing g...

Re: Excessive water intake with MS

Hi everyone, I apologize for not getting back to respond in sometime. I was away for work, and stupid me thought I was done traveling when I switched job to become a municipal engineer. Low and behold, my firm took on a job that was in my wheelhouse as it had to do with what I did at my old job so a...

Re: Excessive water intake with MS

Alright, evidently I didn't have hard copies so I had to wait to post any responses. I have attached the images of the results for the vit d, b12 from August. I would imagine you gathered from my original post above, its quite difficult to get the water to flush from my system. That constant sloshin...

Re: Excessive water intake with MS

I do have the results for vit D, B12 and folate. I will look for them when I get home from work. My physicians patient portal is in error state, and I am unable to download the results right this second. I can ask for the other tests you suggested. I've already met my deductible for the year, so I c...
