Heart Disease: What Your Doctor Won’t Tell You
Thanks, Dr Murphree! I have several questions and I’ll post here if you don’t mind answering.
I started 5HTP and take just before bedtime and did well but now, few weeks) I have hypersensitivity in my toes and fingertips. I can’t stand it. It’s the same when I tried to take a combo of calcium, magnesium, and zinc at night to help sleep….did well at first but after few days it also cause the hyper excitability in these areas. Feels like few volts of current constantly in my toes and fingertips. But it goes away by mor ing time and does not return until after taking supplements again at night??
Thanks, Dr Murphree and please tell your wife thank you 🙂
I’d stop the 5HTP, and try sublingual melatonin 3-9mg at bedtime after sleeping better ten retry 5HTP 100-200mg a day with food
7 years ago my husband and I moved across the country with good intention. This was a total change of life for us, EVERYTHING was changed. Turns out, this was an awful decision but financially we could not return ‘home’. Stress kills!? I have been under constant stress since 2006… and ended up on disability 2 years ago. I have been a 110%’er all of my life. I loved striving for better. I was a wife, a mom, a soldier, a registered nurse…. and I started to decline. One day I woke up, needing to get ready for work, and I could not do it. I had migraines for years, but this day… turned into a 30 day period of medication-dark room-very ill. 2006-2011 I had experienced major life changes, and had 4 surgical procedures within a 5 year period. DEPLETED. Interesting how I had been a great patient advocate, but when I became ill I had no clue how to be a patient. I saw a few physicians and except for migraines and back pain they could find nothing wrong. “It’s all in your head”. CFS/Fibromyalgia. My PCP tried so many different medications to help my “depression”, that I went from a competent, fully functioning professional nurse to an almost instantly aged, “nut”.
January 2011 I no longer was able to work. I saw Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Rheumatology, Pain Physician, Physiologists, Mental health counselors, Neurologists, and Psychiatrist. All of them ( except the Psychiatrist), insisted all my symptoms were related to depression and anxiety. Two years into this…I gather the strength to be my own advocate. I no longer drive, Im forgetful, most of my life is spent sleeping (or not)…I paid for copies of my medical records. The past two years all of my lab tests were “normal”. Sir, I have had urinalysis done over these two years, nobody ever told me “abnormal”. Looking at the reports myself, I see I have had microscopic hematuria on every ua! ” Well, that is normal for you”, is what I was told. I didn’t ask to be referred, but I made an appointment with a urologist. My PCP did not have knowledge of this appointment. The urologist LISTENED and did some tests. I believe the physicians that I had seen in the past must have had a heads up that I was a neurotic 50 year old female….they all agreed that my symptoms were related to depression. Labs “normal”. Well, thank God for the strength that got me to the urologists office. I have an ascending thoracic aneurism, pulmonary nodules, hepatic lesion, and a 9mm adrenal adenoma. WTF? CT scans were done. Now, I am in “waiting”. Waiting for what? The aneurism to burst? My PCP said….We will look at your lungs again in one year. Cardiologist said we will recheck (this 4cm) aneurism in 6 months. Is this standard? I was talking adrenal fatigue…..Too much stress for too long, I was told, “it’s depression”, “your labs are all normal”. Now, they SEE abnormalities…..and I’m not supposed to be concerned? Any advice on who to see, where to go. Please.
Thank you Dr. Murphree….
I agree, wait on what? I’d suggest contacting my office to set up a phone or in clinic consult to figure out how to get you heading in right direction and feeling good again. 205-870-2383

Plan on calling in next week. I have been diagnosed with fibro. Dxd with transverse myelitis 5 yrs ago, then had to have brain resection done for meningioma. MRI does not show any inflammation in spine now, but now have fibro. Been a really bad 5yrs. (Septicemia, depleted potassium due to diuretics, etc. on hydrocodone, cymbalta, lyrica. The fatigue and pain is horrible. I struggle to go to work so I can maintain insurance. Do you think you can help me get my life back?. (63 years young and fell like 93). So want to enjoy my golden years when they get here).
Thank you. Sure sounds like you have been a life saver for many sufferers.
