It Ain't So Sweet..

Heads up its one of those meaningless posts..
  • For quite a while now everything tastes bitter; literally, at first I thought its just a one off thing but its been a while now and the bitterness is still there! No matter where I eat from the most exquisite restaurants in town to home cooked meals it still tastes bitter. I don't know what's causing it but everything tastes horrible, even water, and I've been drinking Volvic for as long as I can remember so it can't be that they've changed its taste. Its my taste buds that have gone haywire or shall I say they've gone off into the bitter end..
  • The pain in my back is tripling by the day.. why, why, why do the doctors keep on saying we can't see anything wrong! Why is it with almost every pain I have it is not visible and they have to dig and dig till they find the source of the pain?! Damn it even my body is just as stubborn as I am!!
  • I'm watching The Fifth Element (Bruce Willis & Milla Jovovich) I absolutely love this movie or is it that I love Willis too much that I love all his movies.. Like mother like daughter ;) I think I've watched it over 50 times already.. The scene with the opera is simply amazing, a combination of beauty, violence, and amazing vocals. The song itself is just wow! The singer Inva Mula Tchako's voice is simply magnificent, her voice is so soothing yet so powerful.. Have a listen and let me know what you think?

Caffeine withdrawal
Bipolar disorder
Diabetes, type 2
Muscle strain
Side effects of strong medications

Any of the above or combination could be the causes.

5th Element rocks.

fourme my dear,
whats wrong with your back?? because i have the same problem to. i went to a kazillion doctors, and heres what i know so far:

1. bad posture
2. bad posture
3. you could have a disc bulge or protrusion...even though its unlikely at ur age if youre not morbidly obese
4. something to do with ur uterus's position...apparently if its tilted the wrong way around, it can cause back pain. so get an ultra-sound.
5. make sure ur taking in enough calcium
6. and last but not least, my moms freind had back pain for a long time when she was young. she was referred to a gynecologist, who told her that the solution to her problem was that she get married. ironically enough, all the pain went away when she did. this is as said by her, so ana maly she'3l...dont kill the messenger! :)

o let me know what happens with you. tra ana physiotherapy kilish ma yab weyay nateeja. the only thing that works is this ointment called voltarin. muscle relaxant supposedly. so try it, maybe itll work for you too :)

FourMe said...

Its non of those..
EXACTLY thank you! Its an amazing movie simply love it.. views on the opera?

cheers I'll have a look..

baaaaby now you don't even know how to count! You're second.. that's because both of you left a comment at the same time..

If I walk for more than 30 min I start getting a pain in the middle of my back and pressure on my legs, and when I get back home and rest I can't move for a while as a result of the pain.. did a MRI a bit ago and said there is nothing wrong..
Ahhh don't even go there, the whole area is screwed.. lol ya I'll get married just so I can get my back pains fixed! hell that's as good a reason as any :p
calcium is fine, I know I doubt physio will help either.. the creams only numb the pain in the back but not the overall pain..

Eschew Obfuscation said...

Hmm, is it just bitter or more of a metallic taste? How long has your back been in pain? I am not a physician but human genetics and disease is my thing ;) ... Go check if you have too much iron in your diet or if you are slightly anemic.

If you have weight fluctuation, abnormal pigmentation on the skin, or irregular heart beats or congestive heart failure (b3eed il shar), you might wanna check.

The giveaway is usually the bitter/metallic taste and arthritis or back pain. :)

Eschew Obfuscation said...

Oh, I forgot to mention the name!! hehe... Well, unless u sleep on the couch like me, you might wanna check for hemochromatosis. Dont freak out, it isn't a killer ;)

FourMe said...

Ok you just made me feel like I was about to die with all those illnesses you threw at me!

1.No couch sleeping..
2.Weight is stable..
3.Skin is normal..
4.Heart is functioning.. hahaha now that's funny!
5.Just bitter no metallicy taste..
6.Blood work is all fine..

had the pain for about 2 years or so but recently has become quite sever..

No worries its probably one of those FourMe unexplainable conundrums.. oh and thank you for scaring the crap out of me for a split second there..

Disturbed Stranger said...

I'm not nice either... the world is anasty place.. therefore it doesn't deserve nice people..

What you need is a good day at a spa ;)

FourMe said...

heheh eysalmich min kil shar ya galbi :*

s7leya eb 3ainich I love the movie 3an elghala6.. tstahlaain..

disturbed stranger:
true its a very very nasty place.. I'm a nice person sometimes TOO nice as long as no one treads on my bad side (which rarely comes out) but when it does lets just say nice is no where near to be found :)

That my friend requires one to relax.. which is something I do not know how to do :/

Delicately Realistic said...

The causes of ur pain are many, but methods of treatment are pretty much the same for all of them.....

Is the pain in ur lower back or more towards the butt area?

Do u sit down a lot?

Fastidious Babe said...

ok the symptoms checker thing is HIGHLY not recommended!

hope ur feeling better now? lower back pain is so common and usually there is no cause except bad habits.. as in.. slouching.. bending.. high heels.. the works.. and research showed that exercise works (not bed rest).. try swimming..! xx

Eschew Obfuscation said...

Dont you just love me when I scare you like that? ;p... My motto is "Hope for the best, plan for the worst!"
Trust me, im such a phobe when it comes to disease! After i had my braces put, and obvious inner cheek irritations occurred, I mistook the white injured texture of my inner cheek for oral cancer! Dont get me started! :P I do a full checkup with complete blood-work every 3 months!! hehe

Eschew Obfuscation said...

Oh! This is ironic, but I should have mentioned it earlier ;) ... Ockham's Razor states that "the explanation of any phenomenon should make as few assumptions as possible, eliminating those that make no difference in the observable predictions of the explanatory hypothesis or theory." :)

Basically, the simplest explanation is often the correct one ;)

So, if its backpain then maybe just slouching and bad posture or activity, as one of your other readers had mentioned.

FourMe said...

I have no fat on me what so ever. I befriended the pain for more than 2 years but this month its reaching extreme levels, we can no longer be friends. thank you dear, and I hope you feel better as well..

fastidious babe:
I know the dr's keep on saying there are a million different causes for it.. aahhh the days of the heels, I think thats what caused it because I use itt wear them easy easy 14 hours of the day every day :/ tried swimming hurts more..

FourMe said...

ummm no I don't enjoy being scared.. well mine is 'hope for the worse, plan for the worse, live the worse' :D

Ok you're just a freak.. chill man! you'll give yourself something with all that checking!..

Honestly no clue.. because every time I have something that's bothering me no one seems to know what it is.. its like I'm a medical mystery of some sort :/

..::Amu::.. said...

I hope you feel better soon :)

purelyorchid said...

ooooh back pain is the worst!! there is no quick fix!! and the medicine that is used for back pain has the scariest side effects... so take care... hope u feel better soon;)

ĐǻñĎõøðñ said...

my back pain is when i stand or sit for more than 15 mins...esp sitting aggravates it like you said, after im done and i rest, i just cant get up for a long time. wallah madree shagoolich, all doctors ma minhom fayda, ma e3rfoon shay (no offence to any doctors)

<-- said the future doctor :P

FourMe said...

cheers mate..

Let them give me medicine I don't mind.. they don't even want to give me anything and not telling me what's causing it :/

standing kills me, sitting is bit weird I can't still still for long I have to fidget so the pain doesn't become worse..

heheh you're so in the wrong profession :p
