Super_mushroom, yes maybe lol. I cannot do Tuesdays for the moment and I'll be on holiday from next week week until the end of the month ✈️🛩️ can't wait to get out of here and have a bit of peace and relax from all this day to day stress
I'm lucky. It still has some effect. I'm not worried about going red anymore. And that compared with it is physical harder to go red. All in all makes blushing a non issue now. But.... "healing" takes time. So it can change when nerves grow back again (like it luckily did for my site effects). But sure i hope not 😉.
I feel for you red attack. We all know how depressing this condition can be and how much it affects our daily lives.
I think the only way we ever get a solution to this is through being proactive. Obviously ETS is one solution, although one that comes with associated risks. There is obviously a physiological reason why this happens, and I guess its a case of figuring out what that is so that we can then figure out how to treat it. Has anyone ever had a range of medical investigations (e.g. blood tests) etc to try and find what it is that is malfunctioning? I kind of wish there was a real life House MD to figure this out for us (a tv show for those who've never seen it. Funnily enough they actually had an episode about someone with chronic blushing).
I think I shouldn't of posted this after having a drink it's causing you guys think I'm just red after a drink. I was just highlighting my red attack after just one drink it also went on for hours. I'm red in pretty much every situation I believe I'm a blusher and a flusher it ruins my life I can be slightly pink like first picture and sometimes like a tomato, occasionally I can even be pale im not even sure of my natural red shade now as I'm on colonidine and propranolol been on for over ten years. My head more often than not feels hot plus I sweat a lot from my head to I just want it to stop it's steadily ruining all aspects of my life
Hello ETS isn't the answer for flushing at my knowledge. I had ets 2 years ago (and removed clamps again due to siteeffects). I still blush when drinking alcohol (just like before ets). Ets didn't make any differents. It's weird.. sometimes I flush alot just by one beer. And other times I can drink forever without any flushing. When I flush when drink alcohol I just drink 2 times the amount in water. That helps. ETS helped the social blushing alot. But i would say it also helped with flushing in the gym when working out. I don't look like a tomato there anymore. But I can't compare my issues to you because I never have had any weather related issues that bothered me much. And never flushed related to food either unless it is really spicy. But I really don't think ETS is the answer for your flushing. ETS is not without risk.
Good to see people joining i have made you guys MODERATORs so you can kick people out of the chat room if anybody joins that shouldnt be there. obvioulsy the more people that join the better it would be for everybody and having somebody to talk to now its more active ill turn notifications on
I have a hard time believing that a traumatizing event can suddenly lead to long-term chronic blushing in a person not born with the disorder. All evidence points to this being a physiological disorder that of course can be aggravated by stress, emotions, etc. I would argue that blushing is comparable to psoriasis in a way. Psoriasis can be triggered and aggravated by external conditions such as stress, emotions, diet, etc. but only in people born with the conditon. I will never have a psoriasis outbreak regardless of how much stress I'm under because I simply do not have the disorder. Someone who begins blushing later in life due to a traumatic event is absolutely (in my opinion) someone who has and has always had a genetic physiological predisposition to blushing. What exactly did your doctor say if I may ask?
Yea they are full brother and sister's.No they don't blush at all. It all seems odd to me people on here so it runs in the family so that's why I've got it.yet I went to cbt and they think its because of an event that happened wen I was 17 . I just think I am extreamly unlucky to get it.
I've been using it everday for almost a year now and no one has ever mentioned anything. I wear it around people who definitely would mention it if they noticed. I'll just say it's sunscreen if anyone ever does. It actually really also is suncreen (SPF 20).
Hi. It is very strange I have 1 brother and 2 sister's and none of them have this problem also my parents and grandparents don't have it.
I'm quite normal wen I'm in my safe place I.e my house but give me 5 mins outside and I'm in fight or flight more and I'm like your first pic then if i see any1 or hav to interact I'm like your second 1.
yes it is strange, I would like to know how red others go on here? I don't know how red ill be without the tablets to scared to stop... it bothers me no end I just want to be pale like I used to and not colour up whenever im talking to someone Even if I could just cover it with this tinted moisturiser as someone mentioned that would be great I just don't know if to pursue this ETS or not
