Common Questions and Answers about Men's health journal articles


Avatar m tn I had never heard of this condition, maybe because I am a female and have never worked in Men's Health. Therefore I did hours of reading and research and came up with some interesting theories. As you apparently know this condition is notoriously difficult to treat. There are some theories that this has a physiological component. One of the treatments when nothing else seems to be effective is called "Skin Deep.
Avatar n tn Here is an article on hep c thru sex though it concentrates more on gay sex Hepatitis C Threat Through Sex Seen By: DUNCAN OSBORNE A growing body of evidence suggesting that hepatitis C can be transmitted sexually is prompting some AIDS activists to call for more research and for AIDS groups to talk to clients about the health threat.

599170 tn?1300977493 Found out years later I was obviously starting in a Hashimoto cycle of destruction! Had ovarian veins like the size of 3 men's thumbs across the right one that would bleed constantly another few years later. Bled heavily for the first 3 months of last baby. Nearly lost him. Had heavy periods for years now. Like Tamra above, NO ONE ever tested me for thyroid disorder!
Avatar m tn Have you Googled your symptoms and your questions about your health, concentrating on articles from JAMA, the European Journal of Medicine, Dr. Holtorf, the National Thyroid Association, etc. rather than chat rooms where people just rag on with each other about their symptoms and complain about their doctors ? It is your responsibility to be informed about your condition. For instance, why don't you Google "hypothyroidism and selenium" and see what you get, etc. ?
572651 tn?1531002957 Consider that our forum leader is an MD, and as her (very eye-opening) journal entry notes, she went through quite a lot in order to get diagnosed. We have many other forum members that also demonstrate how even those who you think would be "immune" to dismissal are in fact turned away by doctors and told "it's all in your head.

The Louisville Courier-Journal reported Judd is eying McConnell's Senate seat, which is up for grabs in 2014.
Avatar n tn By the way, I still play the lottery even though I'm told my chances of being struck by lightning are higher than winning. Laughter is the best medicine, not to diminish anyone's current health plight, but could we lighten up a bit? And regarding the actual thread topic I have, on several occassions had excruciating pain with swallowing food which hints at yet one more trigger for the dreaded PVCs, vagal nerve irritation. Best thoughts for all.
Avatar m tn - rehab aftercare group meeting (12-step based) - men's relapse prevention group (evidence based) - AA Every two weeks I see my addictions counsellor/therapist. Every month I see my mental health worker. Every 3 months I see my family doctor and my psychiatrist. I practice mindfulness and CBT every day. Not sure what else you'd have me do.
Avatar m tn I think this would be a very good time to schedule a complete work up to find out exactly why your so fatigued and experiencing brain fog. Set up an appointment and get to the bottom of your health issues.
Avatar f tn I had upper and lower jaw surgery 3 years ago and my health has never been the same. I was given 4 plates and screws in the mandible and maxilla and got the same story about the bioavailability of titanium, but I question it. I have done some moderate research over the last few months and I found one excellent study about a very small percentage of patients having significant health systems since receiving Ti implants.
599170 tn?1300977493 however, very border-line....because of the incidence of rape, incest, health of mother, etc, I have to be for it.....or else, I would definitely be against it.
Avatar m tn If you want to know what causes sinusitis, and why the saline solution works, go to Part II of this journal. PART I 1. MAKING YOUR OWN SALINE SOLUTION WARNING: Do not use tap water, unless it has been boiled first. There is a rare microbe that can get in your brain from some water systems. Saline solution is salt water. You can buy a bottle of saline solution in a drugstore, and it works just fine.
Avatar n tn OMG!! 46, will be 47 in June. Can't even tell you how everything seems to be failing, wrinkling, etc. & yes, it seems like it happened overnight. Perimenopausal as well. Had complete check up recently & no major health issues. However, my gyno has me hrt's(which I REALLY want to get off of). Added into the mix of all the skin issues mentioned, I am losing my hair like CRAZY. Anyone else having hair loss issues?
Avatar f tn } I think a point Susans thread brought out is who's going to do more good for health care, make changes, etc. Helping health care, making changes is my main concern, whatever the disease may be. X is correct tho, in that it is up to many of us to change, make awareness in hep c. Quick note on the 'war' our soldiers, etc. While HATING seeing our people go fight, get killed, leave home and so on..….
Avatar n tn Ladies, First off THANK YOU all for your honesty here. I, like many of you thought I was alone here and had no idea what to do! I wanted to let you all know that I did try the RePhresh product and found that it worked within the first day of treatment. The product can be purchased in the "women's health" section of any drug store. It retails for about $20 and is a month long supply (it can be used every three days). I do want to throw out one warning about it though...
Avatar n tn If you're taking this pill just to loose weight, and not for a health reason, you should stop taking it, and see that if you keep eating healthy, and walking, you'll still loose! And BTW, taking this pill 10 mins before a meal to help with your appetite is crazy! All diet pills tell you to take it 30min.s before each meal.. b/c it takes 30 min.s to start working...10 min.s? that pill isn't doing anything for you when you're eating!
Avatar n tn i had echo done on my heart--normal chest xray--normal blood tests--normal (still waiting for the results of the allergy test though) so like the other post said...i feel better about my heart, and my health but i still cant breathe. Pulmonary function tests where the doctor said "it could be asthma, very mild though" he prescribed singulair and an albuterol inhaler for before i run. sometimes taking the inhaler can make me lightheaded. so i dont like using it.
Avatar n tn any instructions for follow-up? did you get any meds? Seriously think about going to a naturopath for extra health support, get someone to call and drive you there. Also, go see your medical doctor if you feel that you have worsened. I got the flu shots on Nov 5th and there have been days that I felt that I went "backwards" and then I would improve again. Look at our original forum (Tingling after Swine Flu Vaccine) where there are over 150 comments for more feedback and suggestions.
Avatar f tn thank you for that link. I too think that its nerve related. Mine started out seasonally but became continuous. I do battle back aches and migraines although the migraines only started after a car accident. The continuous itching started prior to the accident. I am not a sun lover at all even though I am in California.
Avatar n tn I too can relate to your story. Not just an hr ago I went through this same thing: stomach cramps and nausea; light headed, turned pale, I got really hot all over sweating from head to toe; loss in blood pressure that I couldn’t even hold my head up, felt like I would pass out; severe stomach cramps and liquid diarrhea, in my case there was no hard stool. I have experienced this problem probably 5 or 6 times in my life and I am 46.
Avatar n tn And I don't wear contacts either. And the itching drives me crazy! My health insurance doen't cover dermatology :( so I'm trying to solve the mystery myself. Any help would be WONDERFUL!!!! Thanks in Advance!
Avatar n tn Married 7 yrs no other partners no history of any health issues. Thought it could be atrophic vaginitis, but dr didn't seem to think so. The only thing that stops it from itching all day is anti itch cream like vagasil.
Avatar n tn There is a good article in Women's Health this month in regards to Chronic pain and the fact that sometimes the nerve does not "shut off" long after the injury has healed. At least this would account for the fact that nothing shows on MRI's, X-Rays, CAT scans, Bone Scans etc., etc.. The hope was that the nerve blocks that I had would work "like shutting down and restarting your computer". One worked for 4 days, the next one 2 (they won't repeat them).
Avatar n tn Luckily my girlfriend is a champ and isn't too conserned about me getting off, but she's more worried if there are any health issuse i need to be aware of... I don't really think I'm comfortable enough to say "I'm addicted to porn!" Oh well, I suppose I'll take everyone's addvice and just cut back on the porn and masturbation.
Avatar n tn WOW Law Enforcement, that must be so exciting, to tell you the truth I had only the mental health part of my police application then off to the Academy, when my daughter died and I would have been right there with you. Guardian Angel your way for protection of you and your family each day you go out for all of us!! I am so sorry to hear about your mom, I can honestly say I don't know how you do it, if it weren't for my mom I don't know what I would do, but you have her baby to love you.
