    @Charlie74 I'm in the same boat. My sisters wedding is in 6 weeks and usually I could just dash into Gorman and splurge on a dress for such a special occasion..but there's not a chance in hell now. I'm usually a 10/12 which is fine by me but thanks to Pred I'd be lucky If I could squeeze into a 16. Super depressing. And I'll be surrounded by super hipsters/glamazons too!!

    Oh hon, that lady has got her stuff all mixed up and shouldn't be giving health advice!!! Statins are a class of drug known as HMG-CoA Reductase Inhibitors. They are a DRUG not a natural compound and not found in coffee. Statins are cholesterol lowering drugs that also lower CoEnzyme Q10 in the body as the same pathway that makes cholesterol also makes CoQ10 (ubiquinol). So if you're taking a statin you should take CoQ10 to make up for the deficiency the drug creates.

    It sounds like she means the Tannins in coffee, not statins, and tannins in tea and coffee can inhibit the absorption of some minerals such as iron and calcium, but I don't think they inhibit the absorption of Q10 specifically. I always take my supps away from coffee (even though it's decaf) just in case it does inhibit some absorption, but I don't believe there is any truth to coffee blocking receptors for Q10. Sounds like she's a bit muddled up there.

    OK, so I'm booked in for a Hysteroscopy on the 7th March and I just looked in my massive folder of blood tests and we have had karyotyping done.

    For DH it just says:
    Male karyotype, 46,XY. No abnormality detected.

    For me:
    46,XX. Female. No abnormalities were detected by conventional cytogenetic analysis.

    Is that it? It was called a Chromosome Analysis of Blood.

    @Summer for what it's worth I am truly sorry you had another chem. I know how hard it is and not much more I can say but big hugs from me to you x. @BlondeinBrisvegas glad your all on the mend and hopefully you have a good day today and had a nice lunch. @winsor how's the MS going hopefully not too bad. I heard ginger ale helps or ginger in general, my mum told me that.

    thanks, good idea. I might stock up. I only felt queasy for a few minutes today (& yesterday). it stopped when I ate something. so I'm hoping it doesn't get much worse than this! I do seem to have the super smell though, as today's tomato on my roll smelt funny so it was kicked off. and I seem to be able to smell from across the room now. will see how it progresses. thanks for asking

    wow, I've never heard that. I read you should take it with some food. (but I used to forget to)

    @Charlie74 the pred sucks but it's strange this time round for me. I realise everything is better for me when I'm on it. When I'm off it life sucks. On it I had more energy therefore I was walking 5kms everyday and eating a lot less. I managed to actually lose weight on it. However coming off it my face is once again a pizza, I'm tired as hell and I'm putting the weight back on. I wish I could stay on it permanently oh and also have a baby please.

    @Summer I hope the hysteroscopy gives you some answers. I think the worst is just not knowing why!!! And you just cling to the next test thinking it will provide the elusive answer. It's so frucking horrible. I'm also hoping my laparoscopy provides some answers but I'm so scared it won't aswell. Is the karotype testing a normal test or one only dr m asks for?

    @Tahli I've never had bleeding from the clexane site. Was it one of those ouchy injections and you just pushed through the pain? If it hurt I would take it out and do it in a different spot.

    @Summer - thanks! She definitely said statins! I thought it was strange I hadn't come across this in all my chronic googling!
