Common Questions and Answers about Flexibility in nursing practice


Avatar f tn My mom had something similar and went in to have it removed. She has a tiny scar, but is glad it is gone. I don't know what caused it. Her procedure was outpatient, so she went home the same day.
Avatar n tn Recently though, I had one break in my palm under the thumb joint and it turned to a bruise. I work in a nursing home and most of the nurses there have never heard of it. I don't take any meds and have low blood pressure. I do crochet though....???? I always thought it happened to everyone.
Avatar n tn And yes, this is not a common bone to fracture.I work in a Family Practice office, and when asked which bone i broke, i get coments like"that's almost unheard of " and boy, that's rare". But since it is Family Practice, I can't pick their brains like I could if they were orhtopods. But I'll keep trying.
Avatar n tn About 48 hours ago, I noticed this heat sensation in my left shin. At first I thought I was standing too close to a heat vent in the floor at work! It is a warm, sort of tingly sensation that lasts 5 seconds and occurs, I don't know, 10 times throughout the day. I wonder if I slept on the leg funny?? Stress?? I am 43 and in reasonably good health but seem to be a hypochondriac (spelling?) at times.
250155 tn?1485299539 we are delivering on friday and i just found out that the protocol for our new baby will have to be carried out in the freaking NICU! this is completely unnecessary in my opinion! the only thing that needs to happen for the 1st 48 hours is checking his blood sugars every 3 hours. even dh and i can do that ourselves, so i don't think a nicu staff needs to be involved w/ that! then after 48 hours the baby needs to pass an 8 hour fasting test.
572651 tn?1333939396 Our problems could come from loss of flexibility, loss of strength, loss of sensation in our limbs, or decreased endurance. Each one of those causes would be treated differently in PT. The other example was the question of bad balance. Balance problems can come from gait difficulties, vestibular issues, side effect of drugs, or lesions. Each of those causes would also be treated differently. As much as I like my Tai Chi, and Dr.
Avatar n tn I am currently in nursing school. I am in a compressed program. The stress is unbelievable. I got pg last November, it was an unplanned pg. I went through then what you are going through now. I felt like I had this huge decision to make, and the wrong one could mess up the rest of my life. I have weighed the pros and cons of both sides. Unfortunately, that pg ended in miscarriage at the begining of my 4th month. I was just getting excited about being pregnant, and used to the idea.
544292 tn?1268886268 I don't have much to offer you... pretty much everything you need is in these posts, in yourselves, and in your connections with other people. I never took tramadol, but opiates were one of several substances I was addicted to when my sky fell some years before tramadol was introduced. I believe absolutely that the primary characteristics of tramadol withdrawall are substantially the same as opiate withdrawall.
Avatar f tn But my right leg is a little bit shorter than the left leg, and the muscles in my right thigh are smaller and somewhat atrophied compared to the muscles in m left leg. My x-rays show some early osteoarthritis in my right hip, and my right hip is pretty deformed and flattened out on top. I struggle to remain active. I too enjoy working out - weight lifting, hiking, cycling, etc - but it can be pretty difficult to do on some days.
181575 tn?1250202386 ), the only detectable marker of infection is the hepatitis B core IgM antibody (anti-HBc IgM). This scenario is rarely encountered in clinical practice. A positive HBsAg indicates the presence of an acute or chronic HBV infection. A positive anti-HBs, in the setting of a negative HBsAg, indicates immunity to HBV infection resulting from either vaccination or resolution of a prior infection. Occasionally, both anti-HBs and HBsAg are positive in the setting of chronic infection.
Avatar n tn Hi! My 12 yr old daughter had a grand mal seizure three weeks ago. Her EEG resulted in a diagnosis of Primary Generalized Epilepsy, and her second MRI resulted in a diagnosis of a 10mm (1cm) Chiari I Malformation. She is on Keppra for the Epilepsy, and I am unsure whether there is a correlation b/w the Chiari and her seizure.
Avatar n tn They can apparently only wash out the toothpaste type calcium build-ups, so maybe the hard build-ups cause the remaining pain, or maybe it is just being out of shape/flexibility. I was able to golf in Maui, although with some pain. It did help my swing some as I had to rotate my hips more so I would not twist my shoulder as much towards the end of the swing. I would say it is still improving, so maybe if I work with the physio impingement improvement exercises, it will get better.
Avatar n tn I was lucky to randomize into the study group, but was in so much pain I would have been happy with a fusion. I was in hospital overnight, came home with oral pain meds which I had cut the dosage in half by day 4. I'm not taking any now. On Feb 2 I saw my doc and we dumped the neck brace. I can do pretty much what I want to, but am a little stiff and sore in my shoulders and the back of my neck. The incision is in the front, about 1" long.
Avatar n tn Meanwhile, what state are you in? There are some Universities that have sports-division medicine that specialize in this & some even need people w/ conditions for the professor to work with. (Not a student)! Do/Can you get your records of tests done? Also, some chiro ofc's or net sell Biofreeze-gel that goes deeper than OTC cool gels & numbs for awhile. Later.
Avatar f tn Mavs3982's is far from the only person who has tried Armour and felt much worse, not better. Although there are people who do feel better after making the switch from levothyroxine to Armour, you might consider a "starter strategy" of taking levothyroxine initially while keeping Armour on your list of alternative strategies for the future.
Avatar n tn Each time I got it, it was a result of severe stress (once in nursing school and this time when my husband lost his job). Hope this helps. After experiencing the four worst months of my life due to this illness that was undiagnosed for just as long, I pray I can help others by suggesting that they check this out with their doctor.
Avatar n tn He is also going swimming (near us, unlike the physio) most afternoons and doing the exercises in the heated pool. In addition he gets acupuncture once a week and yesterday had the knee manipulated. All comment that the tendons are extremely tight and the acupuncturist's needle bent. Today is the first morning he proposes to attend physio without the morphine as after a few hours he is extremely depressed and tearful and this can't continue.
Avatar n tn I received my first shot Feb 3. I weighed in at 193. When I received my second shot on Feb 23 I weighed 175. So in those three weeks I lost 18lbs. I dont weigh myself in between visits. My next appointment is March 16, so I will see what happens then.
298579 tn?1192250448 This is quite odd but I experience an uncomfortable cramping in my lower abdomen after I have an orgasm or after a particularly intense bowel movement. It's somewhat painful but definitely more on the uncomfortable side. Occasionally I will also feel the cramping when I get sexually excited. It doesn't last for too long, a few minutes at most but I was curious if anyone else had experienced something like this. Thank you for your feedback.
1647691 tn?1363727302 Fortunately I didn't get sick so they let me continue. My Dr also wants mine to be between 15-20. But another Dr in the practice was OK w/ a 22...I guess it depends on teh Dr-a second opinion never hurts!!!
Avatar n tn Im using the original DHEA i'll check the brand name and tell you. I take 1X 25mg in the morning and 1 in the evening. Im self medicating on it so im scared to increase the dose. I just want to prepare myself in advance for our next IVF. Good luck to both of you.
1294995 tn?1330666336 I shall be here with you and supporting you all through your BFP's. Some good news from my end, I ovulated in this cycle from Clomid....Last cycle was a bust but this cycle seems hopeful. Keep me in your prayers. All the best and thank you for your support girls.
Avatar n tn For the last 6 months I have been getting tearing (look like paper cuts) in my vaginal area (1/4 to 1/2 inch long). I get the tears at least once or twice a week and they last from 2-4 days, go away for a few days and then come back. They continue to occur in the same locations; 1. Inside the vaginal lips on the sides almost always in the crease (between the labia minora and majora?) 2. Between the anus and vaginal opening (perineum) 3. Above the clitoris in the "hood" area.
