Men's health message board

Common Questions and Answers about Men's health message board


Avatar m tn "why on earth you assumed im a female?" Because when I hover over your name it says so!! But your icon is blue - something must be messed up with the MedHelp computer... I still reckon that, since this problem is unlikely to be male-specific, you'd get a better response posting on the "Ear, Nose & Throat" message board, rather than "Mens Health". I've had a nose that is semi-effective at best all my life, but it's always been that way so I'm used to it.
148588 tn?1465782409 Pittsburgh dentist Alfonso A. Costa pleaded guilty to a felony count of health care fraud after an FBI probe into his oral surgery practice found he had charged for procedures he never performed, according to court records. Though the crime carries a potential sentence of up to 10 years in federal prison, Costa was able to avoid prison time after Carson helped petition a federal judge for leniency.
Avatar f tn He has been hospitalized several times over the past 2 months due to health problems aggravated by his drinking. He has made several promises to get help and go into treatment, but just keeps drinking. I am devastated, and no matter what he says, I remain convinced this bender (his absolute worst ever) is triggered by me and our relationship. I rarely hear from him now, and when I do he is drunk, either lying about treatment or professing his love for me.
Avatar f tn Well, the thing is that 12 year old that has had about 8 screen names now, and she was giving advice to younger moms and was acting like she was the mother of 10 kids..................that's lying.
Avatar m tn Here is a thought for the guys. How do you think male birth control could or would have affected you life? It is scheduled to be released in America in about 5 years elsewhere in three years. Some womens rights groups are already complaining that it puts too much reproductive power in mens hands. It is though that the populations in most countries where it is used will plunge and that the child custody industry will bottom out sending a lot of scumbag attorneys to different troughs to feed.

193905 tn?1325400789 Yeah, that's the part that scares me (Good Health) I'd like to say I'm in good health, well I am it's just that I had a heart attack 2 years ago. When I found this pain management dr. I left that part out. I just informed him of the motorcycle accidents, not the heart attack.
Avatar f tn is this message board. Why do addicts lie?? Within days of going back to her choice of work, she began using again. Or at least her boyfriend text messaged her that he would get her a "bag"... and "when are you bringing my bag??" How would I know this? Because she continues to have use of the cell phone that her step father provided as an employee (and I am privy to the records). Why do addicts lie?? I HUGELY love my daughter. But I will not be an enabler.
Avatar n tn I was excited and posted the news here. Since then, I have contacted the health department and was told to have those tests confirmed. They contacted me to let me know that my EIA was reactive with a low signal-to-cut-off ratio, so they have to deem it indeterminate. They are running a RIBA and another PCR test, and I should have the results on Monday. I also applied for life insurance less than a year ago and asked for a copy of my lab work. My AST was 31 and ALT 54 (high).
Avatar n tn I have to say that I'm concerned (& I hope I'm not alone but fear that I am) at some of the threads on this board. I have been reading some responses, in particular, those from a "Hankstar." It seems that Hankstar dispenses what appears to be "credible" sounding medical advice (in fact, seemingly close to practicing medicine) to clearly concerned "patients" after "patients.
Avatar n tn Thanks Al, I appreciate your writing me back. After reading your answer, it made me feel so awful for you that you still have heart issues going on. It can always be worse and it's good for me to remember that. About the angina, when they gave me the nitro I noticed a small lessening of cramping but 10 minutes later had a whopper that went from my chest to my shoulder. Not fun.
Avatar m tn Hey Worried, This forum is really an amazing resource, not only to get a sense of what is going on in terms of men's health issues (which we rarely discuss with doctors, much less our buddies!), but getting support for mental and physical uncertainty. I hope my posting has helped. I'm fairly certain mine's not an std, especially after reading some of the posts in the dermatology and urology boards (which I suggest you read as well).
Avatar n tn Thanks so much for advice, I think this Endo deals with a lot of thyroid but one thing right off the bat I didn't like was he only deals with Men's hormonal issues and not women's. I was hoping that he was going to help with my menopausal & osteopenia issue along with the thyroid since they all interact with each other in the body. After my phone call tomorrow I may be looking for a new Endo..probably a good thing if it comes to that.
Avatar f tn Gary Null Interviews Dr. Peter Rost of Pfizer The State of Health in America Gary Null Interviews Dr. Peter Rost of Pfizer: June 10, 2005 On Friday June 10, 2005, Dr. Gary Null engaged Dr. Peter Rost in a candid discussion on the nature of healthcare and the pharmaceutical industry in the United States.
1530342 tn?1405020090 Although it may seem simpler to beg for forgiveness instead of getting him on board, unilateral decision making can drive you two apart. 8. Not giving him the chance to be the kind of dad he wants to be. Mothers often parent differently than fathers, but not necessarily better. For instance, some studies show that parenting styles more common with dads, such as rough-and-tumble play, offer children unique developmental benefits.
Avatar n tn Check out iVillage--they have a board on marriage and porn and also have a board on bisexual issues (under Love and Sex). You may find some helpful comments from women in your situation and also read posts that may give you some insight to your dh's perspective.
Avatar n tn ) Wouldn't it be funny if there was a stricly men's message board for ttc. Can you imagine?? Bless his heart, but my dh has NO CLUE! And he really is OK with that. His motto it, tell me when and I'll be ready ...
Avatar n tn For my sixty fifth birthday this year, my wife (the dear) purchased a week of personal training at the local health club for me. Although I am still in great shape since playing on my college football team 45 years ago, I decided it would be a good idea to go ahead and give it a try. I called the club and made my reservations with a personal trainer named Belinda, who identified herself as a 26-year-old aerobics instructor and model for athletic clothing and swim wear.
Avatar m tn Well I do hope things work out in your best interest! Feel free to private message me if you wish to talk or vent or whatever.
175662 tn?1282217256 I really wish you the best, and I hope this works out for you because you're in pain, but I also want the people who are reading this board to get this message - get married before you get pregnant.
Avatar n tn Granted, we can't exactly reach into an anonymous internet board and grab up that baby in our own arms; all anyone can do here is recommend the healthiest outcome possible for that child...being adopted out to a loving home. And before I get accused of having no clue about the success or failure of adoptions, I have two wonderful cousins who were adopted into my family as newborn infants. Despite all that anyway, I'm not entirely clear WHAT the original poster is asking.
Avatar n tn That is great to hear that you got a diagnosis! Let us know how the treatment works out for you!
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.
Avatar n tn See the monster wave of sickly doom and naseau force him limping to the bank Men's room. Oh, and you won't want to miss his endless tossing and turning in the depressing night when the normal world is rewarded with the peace of innocent slumber....
1199040 tn?1265239024 Please lets fight for equal treatment. Maybe the big wigs sitting in Washington will forego their health care until we all have health care. HA May all beings be free from suffering.
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 Your ovaries affect mental health later in life, and bone health. I can sense that you are resigned to having the surgery, but I sure wish you could delay it and explore some alternatives. NEITHER the patch or the pill or any other drug will ever, ever be able to replicate what your body does naturally. You will never be the same again. The surgery takes all of 20 minutes, and the effects last til the day you die. Did they tell you some of the things that can happen?
Avatar n tn I must have a great poker face. My wife's health was perfect before the surgery so it wasn't for health reasons as she claims. I'd like to say it gets better but we're not there yet. I'm very supportive of her I just don't want to be with her intimately. And going to the doctor for this phony "erectile disfunction" is a real pain in the ***.
Avatar f tn All I had to do was prove that my insurance didn't cover and she was able to go to the health department for care and medicade took care of everything else. WTH? Wouldn't it have been cheaper to have supported birth control? No, I made too much money. I couldn't lock her up.........or quit my job. So, do not blame the parents in all cases. I am not defending all situations but I find that when teens have babys they are more likely to grow up and repeat the same mistakes the parents make.
