Avatar m tn s symptoms but inexplicable things happening (until my sternum and jaws got into the act). It is said that many more women than men die of their first (and last) MI because they didn't know they were having one and commonly mistake it as indigestion, take some Maalox or other anti-heartburn preparation and go to bed, hoping they'll feel better in the morning when they wake up... which doesn't happen.

1302779 tn?1287405029 Hello all I am just posting to see if any other men suffer from chronic migraine. I was diagnosed in april with "hermicrania continua" a chronic migraine/cluster mix. I see many women post and seems like studies say that more women suffer from chroni migraine then men?
808144 tn?1332724340 Let's battle on, ladies and gentlemen. Alright, so.. why does it always seem that women are always so attentive, organized, and sensitive while men are just about the opposite? What truly attracts us to them? How can men DEAL with us?! Why are women's minds like beehives, with millions of thoughts buzzing around, while men's minds are like a skipping CD on one topic? This is only the beginning.
Avatar f tn I have a long history of depression, but over the last couple of years, since the above symptoms appeared, the depression has mostly disappeared. When I was younger I was prescribed birth control pills to decrease incidence of ovarian cysts, this treatment caused severe depression, to the extent of suicidal behavior. After getting my test results back with the low thyroid and testosterone levels my healthcare provider prescribed synthroid and a compounded testosterone cream.
Avatar f tn t effect men more than women. By this I mean that women are more confortable talking about feelings and emotions and probably feel a little safer than men to speak of sexual abuse. Since women tend to speak about their feeling more freely they probably seek professional help more often or work things out quicker by talking to someone they trust.
Avatar dr m tn Unfortunately, I see more people in the former group, in women as well as in men. One woman even told me that she curses the mornings when she has to wake up.

Avatar m tn t stop me from having two careers--retiring from both (military and high school principal). True, there are not as many men as women with MS and who knows why?? All I can say is keep exercising, eat healthy, don"t get down (keep involved with something), and see a Dr who deals with MS. Best of luck and I'll keep you in my prayers.
Avatar f tn Yes, it can, but you can also look at it the other way -- a big part of what protects us from mental illness are the beneficial organisms that live in our gut and intestinal tract and it is the disturbance of these organisms that allow yeast infections to find a welcome home. This often happens when we take antibiotics or eat too much sugar. Much current research is focusing on the connection between mental health and other diseases with imbalances in our beneficial bacteria.
1684341 tn?1335440750 I have a sneaking suspicion my housemate fancies me, but I'm not quite sure and he is quite shy and I am not exactly "on form" at the moment! When I was talking to him when he was washing up some weeks ago, he snapped a wooden stirring spoon - in half! I'm not sure what kind of energy inspired that. What really gave it away was, as we've both been ill the last 2 weeks, he was bent over in the kitchen coughing and I grabbed his arm and said " No!
Avatar m tn Police wanted every men to masturbate the presence of women cops and humiliated every one. Finally they left all the men and arrested a bike lifter who had no connection to the case. Being close to these cases, I had feeling that the law provide ultimate power to women file any sex cases upon men if they are in relationship/married at any time. Just men are hapless. At one point of time, i am exhausted. To be truth, fear of having sex.
Avatar n tn ) The CDC figures seem to support my angle on it, because a third of new infections (if I remember correctly) were women, most of whom were infected by sex with men. And a lot of those infectious men had been infected by other men. By the grace of some higher power, I never got infected with HIV or any other STD; but this also had a lot to do with the fact that I accepted my bisexuality and had the presence of mind to be responsible about it.
Avatar n tn Long-term infection can lead to damage in the uterus and fallopian tubes in women and, in rare cases, sterility in men. Chlamydia in women also leads to an increased risk for developing Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, which can cause fertility problems. As many as 500 000 PID cases in the United States are due to chlamydia infection. Of these cases, 100 000 women become infertile. Women with chlamydia are also at a higher risk of developing ectopic pregnancies.

597160 tn?1254498907 Well, it had been sitting there for about a month now and I was sick and tired of looking at it and I knew he was just saying this because he didn't want to do it because he was being lazy. Well, I started screaming about how I needed it out of my way so I could clean the hallway. He argued with me to the death. So I just gave in and said fine. Then I went straight up stairs in pain, and hauled the damn thing through the hallway and down the stairs myself.

Avatar n tn and you're not fat... you're pregnant. All men look at other women (and all women look at other men if they find them good looking) but if you trust him not to cheat on you then there is nothing to worry about. My fiance is going to a 2 day bachelor party coming up and i'm not worried at all and i know for sure they are going to go to a strip club. You just have to be able to trust until there is a reason not to.
