#18- February 2018- With Updated Assessments & Images

More here continuing from #17- Rhapsodie’s Visual PAIN Diary- April 2017 Because months have passed since my last entry I’m adding details from the present situation and the pain shifting.  A situation which the doctors have listed as chronic pain, they’re stupid about that, but then they only read what others share with them before making a diagnosis. The February 2018 post demonstrates how the so called ‘chronic pain’ isn’t, it’s in fact circumstantial driven by life AND lack of proper treatment.

There has been a reduction in pain because I do not do much of anything.  My huge 583 square foot tiny home doesn’t make me move a lot to do anything.  The pain that I feel is taken care of by not doing anything, that’s not healthy but it sure saves money and stupid drugging by doctors who prescribe damaging drugs instead of taking care of the problems OR prescribing natural treatments to take care of problems. The misdiagnosis and lack of investigative care are leading to problems beyond the initial ones.

I’m going to show pictures of present pain at times with comparisons from the past, but there’s not of added detail because those were shared in previous posts.  Please think of the value of having doctors who do better work with pain assessments and how that may also help you!

2018- Body Pain Picture

You’ll notice in comparing the images that the pain has decreased, this makes sense with the depreciation of movement and the season of winter.

b. Feb. 2018- Pain Changes

You can see how the spread of the pain has varied; now the lower left calf feels like it’s splitting over and around the talus, the center bone of the ankle. The right calf is stiffened with clumps that can be rubbed painfully away, likely it’s because of core clotting outside the bone. The upcoming pictures demonstrate how the bone shifting with the legs have damaged things.

b. Lower right calf pain & bent bone

b. Lower Left calf bones & Pains

Dr. Gingras determined that the right calf outer bone was bending and arthritis was possible in the left knee area, so it doesn’t surprise me that the pain nerves at the connections of those areas suffer also. Problems grown from lack of care are barely discernible now, but they are likely to just get more and more damaging in the years to come even if the doctors do a fully accurate treatment.

If you logically feel out the results from the ‘found’ problems and you look to the pain issues resulting from the lack of proper treatment you can see why these problems are growing.  I felt like the doctors didn’t want to do anything even when they offered to do surgery to treat the blood clotting on my right calf.  It may have been I read the situation incorrectly, but my primary care doctor should have received notification of that recommendation and I’m not sure that was done either. Maybe my strong pain tolerance threatened their assessments of their own accuracy in diagnoses.

Hip & Knee Problems CREATED from lack of care

This image shows the problem areas and new areas of pain that are inconsistent in amount but they have grown from a lack of care.

I’m not sure if you could read the info under the pictures so I’m adding an enlarged version here, but the credits for the figures are shared above:

b. Clipped- Bone issues with lower legs

Arm Problem Extensions

Previously we discussed how the problems with the uses of the left arm increased the problem possibility for the Left Arm Rotator Cuff.  Now the wrist and the elbow are arthritically threatened, because as shown previously rheumatoid arthritis results from lack of care as well as other things.

Images displaying the previous injury and the resulting problems after the fall of 2014 completing the re-seperation.  But here is another image of the scar that resulted from those sets of treatment:

b- Rhapsodie's Left Forearm view when arm is in front of neckThis assists in demonstrating how the internal injury spread is a great possibility and that helps explain the problems that have extended to near the wrist and near the elbow now and this is only the scar remaining from the original surgery when the bone shoved through the arm.

So here I am at the beginning of 2018 before doing anything with Spring or Summer having trouble pulling silverware out of the drawer at times AND being unable to do much more than hold my left arm as I do everything.  That is except typing, which I do with my arm braced on a support and with pain suffering for days beyond any work like that.

b. Feb. 2018- Left arm updatesThese results from inaccurate examinations and reporting have been enhanced by inaccurate pain assessments.  That’s why Rhapsodie has ideas that can assist in helping the doctors who ask us as patients to rate our pain on a scale from 0 to 10 to get better information…

WHOOPS DISEASE-6. Treatment Ideas & Facts

I’m sorry everyone, by writing and sharing these symptoms with my animal, males, females, minus the ones from the last posts about other injury symptoms with me that have been ignored because of other injuries with my body that aren’t diagnosed or treated correctly because of stupid pain ASSumptions by doctors.

What Treatments Have Worked With Me, Rhapsodie, Through the Disease

Throughout this blog there are actions that I have found effective in treating symptoms of Whoops Disease, and that have been effective with members of my family also. This list is made from some of the blog posts information previously shared with added details, AND here there is additional info from recent findings:

Males with Rashes

There was a rash years ago that my husband got, and he tried the doctors medications and suffered from trying those ineffective solutions. Recently he got a rash on his back and I placed some Bag Balm on his back, the next day the rash was almost gone and so was the itching.

Itchies for Noses

On and off for years I’ve had an itchy nose end, use of the Bag Balm has been great, and it reduces the itchy for a long time if I use it after my nightly face wash. BUT a care that I also do is to make sure to put it on and only rub it after, it takes about 1/2 hour for the itchy to go away mostly, but up to 2 hours for complete itch removal. AND this works for 24 hours at the least after letting it set undisturbed. If I rub it on and let it set for 1/2 hour then ‘blow my nose’ the itch removal still works.

Scalp Itchies

After taking a shower OR a bath and washing my hair my head gets super dry and itchy. So it means scratching at my scalp, but I’ve found that a pet comb works to scratch my scalp. BUT the best treatment is to scratch at the middle back top about 3.5 inches by 3.5 inches in that area. BUT like with the itchy nose treatment there’s time after doing that before the itching dissipates, and if I keep scratching it doesn’t go away as fast.

Congestion in the lungs

The congestion in the lungs from colds, bronchitis, and other congestion issues like the runny sinuses still happens even though the chamomile tea works great. What I’ve found is that Licorice Root in candies, teas, and even with the powder and extract work great. I do not use the dosage of the containers, about 10 drops of the Swanson’s Licorice Root Liquid Extract works super well and it’s both Alcohol and Sugar-Free.

The sinuses and drippy congestion for females may be worse than it is for males. My mom and I have this issue, I use the natural treatments that work and she keeps going to the doctor for treatments that are ineffective. The allergy medicines, the asthma medications, the cough drops, the cold medicines do not help her breathe better for more than a few hours at a time. BUT my treatments work for longer times. Here’s more from the WHOOPS DISEASE- 2. Females post about used treatments in addition to the effectiveness for me:

  • The only cold treatments that have worked are

    • GINGER for the INFLAMMATION- This is also good against car sickness, use each night means that I don’t have numbness in my arms OR legs, which is from undiagnosed & untreated fractures. In addition my nose, feet, legs, throat, and ears don’t suffer the swelling that lack of use could have caused.
      • Cider vinegar & honey help it taste good, and the Cider vinegar and honey is GREAT for the ACID REFLUX.
      • This does lead to Asthma diagnosis’ by doctors that don’t do full scale proper tests with proper equipment. Within the first 2 to 3 years.
      • BECAUSE IT IS NOT ASTHMA! THE DRUGS DO NOT WORK for more than making more lung space for the microscopic organisms that have invaded your lungs.
      • The dose for uses is a lot less than packages recommend, but that’s healthier for users because there isn’t the problems with Potassium diminishment in the body. I only use 10 drops of the Swanson’s Liquid Licorice Root extract, when my lungs are feeling bad and when the coughing and sneezing is heavier, even though the packaging says 48 to 56 as a dose.

Acid Re-flux

The acid re-flux issues are problems many people face that’s why there are over the counter treatments for individuals, but those are not healthy to continue. The reduction of potassium in the body the other side effects issues as well as the package warnings, ‘Use for up to 2 years,” which means if the issues stay people keep using the drugs when they shouldn’t. The side effects are likely to cause other health issues also, so the natural treatment Rhapsodie has used continues to be beneficial AND it has improved many health areas for her with the pre-teeth brushing before bed time consistent uses.

  • During sleep the ‘acid re-flux’ happens because your lungs are breathing in moisture from the stomach area, thus causing acid re-flux, so the treatment with a daily dose before bed of:
    • 2 tsp. Unpasteurized CIDER VINEGAR &
    • 2.5 tsp. of real HONEY,
    • 1cup hot water, and
    • aloe juice to cool the drink AND soothe the throat

Teeth brushing after treatments, within an hour generally assist in reducing the acid impacts on teeth. In addition since Rhapsodie uses this with her chamomile tea she has double treatments added into one action.

This treatment is so much better than over the counter OR prescribed acid re-flux drugs because it doesn’t raise the potassium levels in the body AND it works without any prescribed OR drug side effects. For diabetics the amount of sugar for 1 tablespoon of honey has between 17 and 9 carbs depending on the honey brand and type of honey, Raw being a favorite for me. I use raw honey which doesn’t have nutrients boiled out of it with too much heat being used. This has 11 carbs with 40 calories AND because honey isn’t a simple sugar I only need to use 1/2 the carbs with my insulin because like whole wheat AND non-starchy vegetables my body works through it meaning less insulin is needed for my body. In addition there are many nutritional benefits for the body from local area honey AND unpasteurized vinegar of any type.

Wet AND Boils in ears

This has been one of the most annoying things I’ve dealt within the last couple of years. There is so much puss in my ears most days after I wake up that I ended up buying an ear scraping kit. In addition I’ve found that the boils are premenstrual, about 2 weeks before my menstrual cycle it starts forming again. And the day my period starts the boil releases puss and gunk into my ear. What has helped has been using the Povidone Iodine solution sold in the local pharmacy on 2 Q-tips soaked with the stuff at least every other night. AND I make sure to use a separate one for each ear to reduce spreading the problems of one ear into the other ear.

  • Most of my headaches recently have resulted from noise, and I know my ears get clogged. So
    • Using the mix of rubbing alcohol and aloe juice heats and allows the waxy build up to run out and this can be done once a month or so.
      1. I mix up the aloe and alcohol in small container,
      2. Then put a towel on my pillow for each ear,
      3. Then using an eye-dropper fill the ear that’s up, and let it stay in the ear for 3 to 5 minutes, THEN
      4. I tip my head down and do the same with the other ear,
    • This may be repeated if I still feel the need for the release.

Yellowing & Softening Teeth

Yellowing of the teeth happens, the dryer you are. There are issues with teeth softening, it’s looks like rot, but it’s not this happens towards the end of the disease AND up to 5 days after medical treatment it goes away. AND treatment by me includes:

Water blisters that feel like pencil stub bubbles on the end of my fingers

It’s kind of odd because they came about 3 months apart, the one on my thumb I’ve lasted for almost exactly 3 weeks. So there wasn’t popping I use a sugar picker, super sharp needle, and poke a hole and bleed out the excess water in that blister.

Under arm Rashes & Itchiness

The under arm itchies have continued to the present day as have the nose itchies and I treat them the same with Bag Balm, that you can buy in a ‘farm care’ OR pet place.

Rock Hardening Feet for Males over 50

Males over 50 start having their feet harden, and they get feeling like stones. The feet issues may not be able to be reduced with constant feet sqwinching with toes and heals curling in and stretching, these issues definitely get worse with thick and tough shoes being worn. The heated foot & calf massagers may work for this, hand massages also work really well, but it may not stop the rock hardening of the feet completely. The care with this means after treatment taking the time to flex your feet back into normal, with rushing things the stiffened bones and joints in the feet may break if they are not massaged back into use safely. And this can mean wearing reinforcing stockings to reduce the urge to stretch and flex feet that are working more normally again.

Itchy Skin

DO NOT USE FINGERNAILS to itch, this damages the skin and it causes itching to get worse. Instead find a roughly textured cloth or use your fingers/hands to rub away the itch.  This also works with bug bites, because it releases the area inflammation that generally adds to itchiness, but it doesn’t raise up more blood that will increase the inflammation in the healing processes.

Ripping & Cracking fingernails,

The ripped nail edges are being treated with a nail file, because one is carried with me all of the time, my left hand nails are rip cracking the opposite of my right hand on the exact same fingers.

Hangnails & Skin Rips OR Cuts

I’ve not had a lot of these because of drinking so much fluid, BUT use of the Gorilla brand Super Glue to just bought at Walmart, it seals those areas is best and I keep a container in my medicine cabinet, this is used by me because it works longer than the other super glues and it has a resealable lid that works. Larger amounts are available also. In addition if it’s wetted it hardens in place, and generally that washes off in 6 to 12 hours, but the healed area may need re-treatment OR it may not. I also use this on other areas of my skin that rip open a lot easier because of skin losses.

Dry Skin

This has impacted many aspects of my body, that I feel more than others really see. Some areas, like the vagina aren’t had by males, but they may find many of these treatments useful beyond the drink a lot continually action.

  • Dry Skin
    • Making sure to keep drinking; drinking; drinking and the facial & creams that have added glycerine AND aloe juice which also gets added to my cider vinegar, chamomile tea, and honey mix.
    • For my hands using the O’Keeffe’s Working Hands lotion has helped tremendously for that.
    • For my feet using the lotion found in ‘pharmacy’ for feet has helped as has the Gold Bond for Diabetics
  • SCALP Reduce this with super nutritional moisturizing shampoo & conditioner AND making sure to keep drinking; drinking; drinking. I actually use a cheap conditioner, and add honey water with a little vinegar added into the conditioner. About a half and half mix. Then the scalp itch care as mentioned in these pages.
  • Dry vagina means using a homemade douche, container, which I’ve modified from the original by adding a hole at the tip of the inserter.
    • My mix, which works requires dual uses one right after the other to reduce leave behinds.
      • Adding a 1/ 2 with a water & Aloe Vera juice mixed at a ratio of 2/3 water to 1/3 Aloe juice. Doing the math for the individual amounts with the full mixture as a base means:
        • Water- 0.5 (as 1/ 2) ÷ (0.666) or 2/3rds= 0.333
        • Aloe Vera juice- 0.5 (as 1/ 2) ÷ (0.333) or 1/3rd= 0.1.667
        • With the cleansing agent of 1/2 of cider vinegar.


The mood issues with this disease range from feeling misunderstood and uncared for to just being short tempered. This can result in yelling, screaming, and wanting to smash things.

It can be useful to have a punching pillow, bag, towel OR something that makes you feel like the anger, frustration, and more especially from individuals that are ‘believing’ the lies of doctors who are around you all the time believe. If you need maybe even plastic pop bottles, gallon jugs, or other items with some water for weight and a smashing zone so you can feel the whomp of smashing as well as see and maybe feel the smashing results can be good. Take care if this is inside there will be clean up work to be done. In addition it’s super useful when you feel the moods coming on to tell others something about it, so they aren’t hit with your mood when they don’t understand OR feel it themselves and you end up exploding with frustration.

OKAY I’m done doing repeats now, there are additional sets of information in the other Whoops Disease blog posts which are linked below.

Pet Care

The issues with animals are described more in the previous WHOOPS DISEASE- 1. Animals blog post. Here is a bit of that info: A clear sign for animals is the single long cut on both of the front canines, that begins AFTER SNEEZES, THE TEETH which WILL HEAL FINE if the long cuts are cleaned 3 to 6 times before they start healing, with the pet toothpaste & infant brush, AND allowed to fully heal with no touching, if the skin is broken by finger nail or toothbrush after they start healing, then the poor animal has a yucky canine. If the tooth is not brushed the teeth can starve the critter or they can heal with yuck in them.

Doctor’s Misdiagnosis’ Can Cause More Problems

These tropical waterborne microscopic organisms [parasites], are all building the signs of Whoops disease so you may also be suffering. The older ‘medical PDF’ record I found disappeared from the internet, and since then the disease name has changed frequently so all I can tell you now is to be prepared that your doctors will try to treat you for asthma, blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, and anything else they can prescribe a drug for to get you out of their hair AND they will not be treating the problem that’s killing you. Which means you may be demanding multiple tests for waterborne micro-organisms.

If I’d lied and said I’d been in South America, they may have tested for the correct disease. With Whoops disease for testing, a waterborne parasite a urine test is used, and the test needs to be done within 24 hours after the sample is collected. IF the place you go for tests ships in amounts to a hospital lab, it’s likely a bad place to use for this type of test. That’s because from the time of your peeing in the cup until the lab does the test needs to be less than 24 hours. This means that there’s a finite time between sharing the sample and getting the accurate test. If this procedure is not followed, with the lab slip stating 24 hours the results are likely to be TOTALLY inaccurate unless the people handling the test are familiar with it and it’s priority in time, which they aren’t likely to be.

There have not treatments in my life other than the misdiagnosed treatments that actually are done for symptoms that will disintegrate with the real treatment. I mean diabetics may have dry skin that could be a sign of high sugar, so treatment for years for dry skin could kill the people who aren’t tested for the diabetes which is the problem. AND that’s also the case with Whoops disease.  If I get treatment and care I’ll try to have that information shared with you as soon as possible.

Rhapsodie has written about these issues for multiple reasons:

  • To have a shared written record, that’s useful in case Whoops Disease kills her OR she ends up in a hospital OR somewhere else.
  • To provide information to others to assist them in dealing with the horrid medical system the U.S. has at present.
  • To hopefully impact a doctor OR health carer eventually that will take the time to look beyond the false records in their reports who can take the time to do better work themselves for Rhapsodie and for others.
