What are symptoms of vasomotor instability?


I was diagnosed with vasomotor instability last year. I was researching it today to see what it really is, and it seems like menopausal women have it. I'm 14. I was diagnosed with it because when I stand up after resting for a little while, my pulse rises high and I get dizzy and sometimes I can't see very well for a few seconds when I get dizzy. Do I really have vasomotor instability? Or does this sound like something else?
----------

vasomotor instability is an inability to regulate your temperature. You may get very warm quickly. It's also known as "hot flashes". menopausal women get it because their hormones are out of wack. I do not know I am not a doctor I am just guessing. Does this happen before you start your period. Maybe your hormones are out of wack too?

Good Luck!  (+ info)

How to choose a sandal or shoe for ankle instability and/or arthritis?


I've got some arthritis in my ankles, my ankle gets swollen sometimes and the podiatrist said it's from instability.. I'm trying to figure out what kind of shoe or sandal do I need in order to accommodate this problem?
I'm guessing nothing that "wobbles" but what else should I look for?
----------

I'm not an expert at all. But have you ever tried considering one of those shoes for stability. I think they're usually made for walkers and runners but they're supposed to make your walking stable.

The best (and most expensive one) is MBT. Heels are nevr good as well. Opt for flat shoes whenever possible. And when at home, go barefoot as much as possible.  (+ info)

Can those with mental instability become better?


I have a dear friend in college right now with a history of mental instability: she blows up at the tiniest of things; becomes depressed over the tiniest of things; engages in self-destructive behavior (drinking).
She made life a hell for her room mate since she was unable to see how her faults affected those around her.
But I know a different side to her that is caring, kind, and very clever. She's on medication and in therapy, yet I can't help but wonder if she could get better. Is her medication off or does she need a severe intervention before she becomes too old for her habits to change?
----------

If she is on medication she shouldn't be drinking heavily. Many people get through this and lead productive happy lives. You sound like a good friend. Good Luck  (+ info)

Can emotional instability be a symptom of diabetes?


I was just wondering, because my grandfather was a diabetic, and I also know that he was often emotionally unstable and even abusive towards his wife and children. And don't get me wrong. I know that most diabetics aren't violent or abusive, but a friend of mine who was abused by her mother would sometimes blame her mother's emotional instability on her diabetes. Can diabetes actually lead to violent mood swings in some people?
----------

Oh, yes, it surely can. My husband is a diabetic. He is very difficult about taking his medicine, and doesn't eat right, and still drinks way too much alcohol. He's basically in denial (for about four years now) and it scares me silly.

But I can tell when his sugar is whacked. He gets really nasty, and mean as a snake. It's so obvious that I immediately insist he take his sugar. It's hard to deal with for another reason. Some people just have bad days and can be difficult to deal with, but then blame it on their sugar when really they are just doing what comes naturally and being a jerk. Sometimes it's hard to tell the difference unless you can get them to take their sugar. I've caught my husband doing that from time to time. Sometimes it's maddening to tell the difference - and certain people know that and use it against you or to explain their bad behavior so people think "Well, he/she can't help it."

My uncle was a brittle diabetic and he was very abusive to his children. To this day I'm not sure if it was the diabetes or his own "charming" personality that caused his behavior.   (+ info)

I have a popping feeling in my knee often, without any pain or instability. See below for details. What is it?


I tore my acl and had it repared surgically in 2006. A few months ago I was running and felt something weird in my knee, but felt no pain or weakness and continued playing. After several months, nearly everytime I straighten my leg I feel a sort of minor popping or clicking. However I have no pain and no instability, and can sprint, cut and move like normal. What the heck could it be?
----------

go see the ortho who fixed the ACL... depends on where the popping is....could be the patella or could be related to a meniscus... some meniscal tears are painless.... so run it by the ortho  (+ info)

I've just read Toxoplasmosis causes promiscuity in women, and found it facinating.
Is there any more diseases that causes behavioral changes in women or men?

Do you believe that everyone has at least a little bit of mental instability in him?


I tend to think that everyone has a bit of mental problems like obsessive compulsive during some of the times, maybe showing some quick changing personalities that resembles bipolar disorder. Or some other times have suicidal thoughts, hearings things, having delusions and etc. But this is nothing abnormal. This is what I think, do you agree with it?
----------

Yes, I agree, and I know several other people who also think this, one of whom is a doctor. For example, she told me that everyone has some obsessive-compulsiveness in them, whether they realise it or not, however some people have it more than others, and it's the ones who have it the most severely and can't cope are the ones who fit the criteria for having Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. I guess you could say we're all on the spectrum, it's just a matter of what position, which end we're on. And that's much the same for many mental disorders, probably.

I don't think it's a problem, not being mentally "perfect" or "normal", I think it's all part of the joys of being human. However, for the ones who have the severe problems, it's very difficult to live with, and I'm glad we're coming into a time when mental illness is constantly becoming more widely accepted and understood. We've still got quite some way to go, though.  (+ info)

Where can I find what Non Dissociative Carpal Instability is in laymens terms?


I think I might have this but I want some information about it - what I find on the internet is in medical terms and I have know idea what I am reading. I am going to the orthorpidics on Friday and I am just curious on what I could be experincing. I know I shouldn't be diagnosing myself but I am bored waiting.
----------

Nondissociative carpal instability (or CIND) is one instability pattern seen in wrist injuries. I don't know if yours is mid-carpal or capitolunate. Please let me explain:

Eight carpal bones make up the wrist joint and are arranged in two rows. In one row are the scaphoid, lunate, triquetrum and pisiform. In the other row are the trapezium, trapezoid, capitate and hamate. These small bones are connected and supported by ligaments. Ligaments are tough, flexible bands of fibrous tissue that connect bones to other bones and cartilage and they facilitate movement.

CIND is the instability of an entire row of wrist bones because of injury to the supporting ligaments. It usually appears after a single, major trauma but can appear over time after multiple, small traumas. These have an accumulative effect. In other words, you have a severely sprained wrist.  (+ info)

What is instability or malleability of memory?


Its for a paper I am writing on memory, any answers would be greatly appreciated.
----------

Not being sure of what you remember, whether it was real or perhaps something is suggested by someone and then believe and then you are sure it is true. Real memories can also be manipulated or changed over time.  (+ info)
