:eek::eek:------------ANY INFORMANTION IS APPRECIATED!!!---------------


Currently, I am experiencing purple and red feet and legs. Last year, I was diagnoised with Guillain Barre Syndrome (gbs). I had a spinal tap, EMG, and been admitted to the hospital shortly after these events. I stayed for about a week and attended different types of therapys (physical, etc.). I apparently needed IMMUNEOGLOBULIN (IVIG), for 4 ds of treatment. The GBS lasted for 3 1/2 mo. and it spreaded up to my neck. It is under control and gone now.

BUT NOW... I was recently diagnoised with a diagnoises similair to GBS and it's is seeming to be post GBS. I cannot remember the name. I satyed in P.T. again and another EMG. But, it lasted only a month, didnt last long. Well, as long as i can remember my feet and legs have turned colors. But after this, my legs are always in pain or changing colors. If I might be on my feet for a period of time, they turn purple or red including my legs,and i get a BURING SENENATON throughout my legs/feet.

I went to my doctor and they just TOTALLY BLEW IT OFF! They told me to just not wear closed in shoes and wear flip flops, so I tried it out and it is STILL no better. I am sick of this feeling...I am to the point were shorts/skirts/capris etc, are out of the question, its embarrassing. I am demanding an answer, it is not going away. When my feet are not huring or turning colors, my (hair) follicles on my legs are purple. I AM DYING FOR AN ANSWER!!! I was trying on sandles @ the mall BUT TO DISCOVER THAT MY FEET WERE SOOOO SWOLLEN I COULDNT EVEN THE SHOES ON, NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRIED! It was embarrassing, and my feet were blood shot red! I am begging for anyyyy advice or help:(

The consistently low thresholds at which EM fields stimulate biological processes indicate that they require little energy. Since it has been shown that such weak fields accelerate electron transfer reactions, they could stimulate transcription by interacting with electrons in DNA to destabilize the H-bonds holding the two DNA strands together. Such a mechanism is consistent with the low electron affinity of the bases in previously identified electromagnetic response elements (EMREs) needed for EM field interaction with DNA. It is also in line with both endogenous and in vitro stimulation of biosynthesis by electric fields. The frequency response of several EM sensitive biological systems suggests that EM fields require repetition and are most effective at frequencies that coincide with natural rhythms of the processes affected. © 2004 Wiley-Liss, Inc.Received: 3 August 2003; Accepted: 6 November 2003 Digital Object Identifier (DOI)10.1002/jcp.20004 About DOI Basically it is saying that the wireless technologys uses extremely low frequencies (magnetic field) and those frequencies have the capacity to intefer withour natural biorythms because they have the capacity to come inat our natural brain waves therby affecting our DNA Most doctors have no clue about this possible new environmentalfactor but it seems our government(s) prefer that the publicnot get wind of this emerging environmental condition that seemsto be exacerbrating chronic diseases and illness's Your condition seems like some form of HYPOXIASee next link ----------------http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/journal/66004416/abstract Research ArticleElectromagnetic fields may act directly on DNAMartin Blank 1 *, Reba Goodman 21Department of Physiology, Columbia University, New York, New York 100322Department of Pathology, Columbia University, New York, New York 10032email: Martin Blank (mb32@columbia.edu)*Correspondence to Martin Blank, Department of Physiology, Columbia University, 630 West 168th Street, New York, NY 10032.KeywordsDNA; electromagnetic fields; stress genes; initiation of transcriptionAbstractA wide variety of environmental stimuli induce the expression of stress response genes, including high temperatures, hypoxia, heavy metal ions, and amino acid analogs. Stress genes are also induced by low frequency magnetic fields. The cellular response to magnetic fields is activated by unusually weak stimuli, and involves pathways only partially associated with heat shock stress. Since magnetic fields interact with moving charges, as we have shown in enzymes, it is possible that magnetic fields stimulate the stress response by interacting directly with moving electrons in DNA. In this paper, we review several lines of evidence that support this hypothesis. J. Cell. Biochem. 75:369-374, 1999. © 1999 Wiley-Liss, Inc.Received: 14 April 1999; Accepted: 15 April 1999

  • Hi there my name is Amanda I'm 37 years old and I have suffered the same symptoms as you have described for about 6 years, from my knees down my legs are red to purples at times they get so hot at times I think my feet will burst open and their dry and swollen at times,and I have to sleep with a fan blowing on my feet every night, even in the winter...I too have been mis-diagnosed so many times at hospitals leading to so many drugs taken and needles, but just a week ago I went to my own GP demanding his full attention on this matter as so many before him have failed me and he simply said to me it's fluid (to much fluid in your blood) I'll write you a script for a blood pressure medication that reduces the flow of fluid in the blood stream and WALLA FIXED, seriously I have been taking this medication for 6 days and tonight being the 6th night no red no heat nothing ( I can't believe this so simple and it's really worked) The medication is called MODURETIC, but it's not recommended for people with low blood pressure as it lowers your blood pressure, and the only side affect is peeing lots more through the day haha but if I can pee out the fluid rather than suffer the horrid red/purple hot legs, well it's the least I can do whoop whoop...I hope this help all you guys out there...Big hugs and kisses XxOo
