Forum: Health and Drug Concerns

  1. Strength through Joy

    I apologize for the thread title, it's in poor taste. It's meant to evoke regimented forced leisure activity with health overtones. I have, today, for the first time, joined a gym. The gym's brand motto is "Strength & Fitness", so they have pretty much the same approach as the thread title...

  2. Question Dizziness & Numbness of the Tongue

    I've just had an odd experience. I woke up around midnight (a common occurrence these last months) and as I was watching the television I suddenly got very dizzy and my tongue went numb. It only lasted about 10 minutes, but what the hell was that all about?

  3. Burning tongue syndrome

    Anyone ever heard of such a thing? The tongue feels as if its been scalded, sore spots or areas in the mouth, throat yet, the mouth looks perfectly normal? Feelings of dryness or sticky-dryness at the corners of the mouth with repeated bacterial infections (pneumonia, plugged ear ducts,...

  4. From merely Old to Frail

    Three years ago at age 87, I wrote a research/experience essay 'I'm Old' to help us, our progeny, and our caretakers understand what it is to be old. Read it online at http://www.ahpcc.org.uk/pdf/old.pdf. Now, having regressed from merely old to frail, I have written 'I'm Frail.' Read it online at...

  5. Smokers Dilemma

    I am convinced that every smoker really wants to quit, but can't, and it's really frustrating for them. They will rationalize by saying "oh I really enjoy it and don't want to quit". Bull---t, they can't get past 24 to 48 hours. My rationalization when I smoked was to say "well, mom and dad both...

  7. The Frustrations of Hearing Loss

    I have had a hearing problem for about 20 years and about 15 years ago it was bad enough to require hearing aids. After professional testing I opted for in the canal (barely visible) aids that cost more than a computer at that time. I was told that I would never ever hear better than 86% in the...

  8. Tobacco Smoke Enema

    The tobacco enema was used between 1780-1810, to infuse tobacco smoke into a patientís rectum for various medical purposes, primarily the resuscitation of drowning victims. A rectal tube inserted into the anus was connected to a fumigator and bellows that forced the smoke towards the rectum. The...

Anyone...

    My poor sweetie has struggled with a blood clot in her leg for two years. She was airlifted to Denver seven times last year trying to fix it, but to no avail. Well, modern medicine has finally exhausted all its options and she had to make the decision yesterday to have her leg amputated. Other...

  14. Face masks and the spread of contagion.

    I notice pictures on the news of people wearing face masks, seemingly of the sort used against dust, in areas affected by the Swine Influenza (H1N1) outbreak. I wonder how much protection these people think masks give - I'd say none, approximately.

  15. Obamacare = New Healthcare Science?

    After digesting a complete overview of Obamacare and reading extensively the various analysis of the essence of Obamacare, I can't help but think they must be pushing some new healthcare science - a big experiment on the American people? The following article really opens my eyes to the...

  16. Morphine drip

    I was watching a show last night on t.v. Now to my understanding a morphine drip is for pain. When my husbands father was dying, he had a morphine tube in him, and if we felt he was in pain, we would then touch a button that releases more morphine, hence less pain he would be in. Last...

  19. Prostate cancer

    Prostate Cancer is one of the leading causes of death for men. I would encourage all men over the age of 40 to get a annual PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) test. While one test in and of itself will not indicate that you have cancer, a comparison of one year with another may indicate that a biopsy...
