382218 tn?1341185087 Peter Rothwell of the University of Oxford and John Radcliffe Hospital in England, stress that the short-term effects of daily use of the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory, as well as how risky or beneficial it may be over time, have yet to be determined. Currently, in North America, medical practitioners are urged to put anyone who has had a heart attack or stroke on anti-platelet therapy (low-dose ASA, to prevent clots) because it can greatly reduce the risk of deadly recurrence.
233488 tn?1310696703 While the Hippocratic principle of “primum non nocere” has guided our approach to date, it may well be time to reexamine our perception that floaters are simply an innocuous, indeed curiously desirable, manifestation of the “normal” aging process. In this issue of the Journal, Wagle and associates9 present fascinating new information concerning the utility value of floaters, as expressed by patients.
Avatar n tn PS-- I just realized I put DMX in the start of my post instead of DXM... I'm new to this community and I can't figure out how to edit messages.
Avatar m tn well, I have one way of capturing one of these "rare events", my friend from England is probably going to hit on me to sleep in my spare bedroom, ha ha! which is cool, we do a trade and I stay with him when I go over there... Really good to see you here, you explain a lot to me in a much more digestable way...with me, sometimes when I read studies, my mind checks out and the numbers start to do a type of dance...
Avatar n tn There is a new pill that treats lice. As reported in the New England Journal of Medicine, the drug Ivermectin works better than the traditional anti-lice scalp cream. There were few reported side effects and the kids preferred it. Its worth checking out!

Avatar m tn Writing in the New England Journal of Medicine, the Jupiter group described a study of statin drugs in people with high C-reactive protein and low cholesterol. (1) High C-reactive protein levels are associated with inflammation and heart disease/stroke. The authors concluded that, in apparently healthy persons with elevated C-reactive protein levels, rosuvastatin (Crestor) significantly reduced the incidence of major cardiovascular events.
Avatar m tn Extensive literature reviews in the Journal of the American Medical Association and the New England Journal of Medicine also support this view. Interventional trials have proven benefit over and over again. The concept that nutritional supplements “could be harmful” to women flies in the face of all reasonable facts from both intervention trials and outcome studies published over the past 40 years.
21064 tn?1309312333 The benefits are clear in reduction of heart attack and stroke and even in the reduction of colon polyps. The optimal dose is unclear. For patients at low risk for stroke or heart attack, I recommend 81 mg/day.
Avatar n tn Christopher Davis of Virginia, who stated that the cause of death was a stroke. Dr. Davis was the member of British intelligence who de-briefed Dr. Pasechnik at the time of his defection.

748543 tn?1463449675 In simple terms incorrect posture is due to a twisted spine, which barring accidents or skeletal abnormalities- like a short leg, is due to an incorrect position of the skull. The position of the skull is influenced by the position of the lower jaw and ultimately the position of the jaw is mandated by the eruption pattern and final position of the teeth. Hence your bite is dictating your posture. Ever wonder why your chiropractic adjustments don't hold for long?
475555 tn?1469307939 Liver, All FYI- The CDC established the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) an integration of existing programs with new programs, like Viral Hepatitis, was developed to correlate with the HIV/AIDS management model based on specific risks and disease pathology. STD and Substance Abuse programs associated with the spread of HIV/AIDS received increased attention and funding, blurring the other components of HCV disease.
Avatar f tn Can someone tell me what kind of meds works best for the pain in the head. I tried Vicodin but got tired of being nausea, Then I was on Butalbital and that was worse-didnt help the pain.

Avatar n tn It is dangerous to do this sort of diet.. on your own. People can stroke, have heart attacks, loose bone mass.. you name it .. it can happen. My health is more important to me than a few dollars saved a week.. especially if I die trying to do it on my own!
Avatar f tn like I did with a few of my episodes. Make fun of me if they want, I think it would be dumber to think a stroke is happening, but too afraid to go to the hospital for fear of ridicule.) I relocate often, so I hope when I move back to the city, I'll be able to find the family doctor I deserve. TMI, I know. But thanks for taking the time.

695000 tn?1316139648 I was motivated as a result of educating myself through the reams of literature I read (New England Journal of Medicine; Journal of Multiple Sclerosis; Journal of Neurology; etc) which favour early treatment to potentially prevent irreversible neurologic damage. Forgoing DMD treatment and hoping for the best was not the right choice for me.
Avatar n tn I started getting my symptoms at the end of March or early April, shortly after a very long cold, and also not long after they moved our office to a place near some radio towers (I've lived near a cell tower for about 4 years).

Avatar n tn Nausea, headaches, breast tenderness, cramping, mood swings..all of it. I hate it! I would take it out if but I am waiting on new insurance to kick in. If I knew that this thing would make me have these headaches and constant cramps along with this wonderful feeling of being pregnant when I'm not, I would have never done it. It *****. I always had a normal cycle before and only did this for pregnancy prevention.

Avatar n tn TOMORROW, they remove the temp shunt from the right side of his head and due to the amount of scar tissue and the infection, they will put a new shunt w/ an updated value on the left side of his head. QUESTION: DOES anyone have a shunt on the LEFT side of their head. The neurosurgeron said that they typically put shunts in the right side because the left side of the brain is smaller and controls speech. PLEASE GIVE ANY FEEDBACK---- To others who asked about shunt headaches....
534800 tn?1217170959 as often as I could (on every drinking stand) I bought those refreshing towels that here they keep in the refrigerator and put them on my lower legs for few minutes, just the time of a quick drink. Normally there are two stands every 9 holes, so I applyed the fresh towel four times in five hours and a half. Apparently it worked: it helped to cool down the legs and it took me through the whole round without problem.
Avatar n tn I gained about 40 pounds and started to drink alcohol along the way to all of these new symptoms. Not a lot of hard drinking, but at least 3 glasses of red wine per day. Little by little my life fell apart and I stopped going to work. All I did was stare out the window and wonder how people could live normal lives. I was envious of them.
Avatar m tn I have had a cat scan which turned up nothing abnormal and have been referred to a neurologist by both the optician and my dr. By some stroke of luck there was a cancellation for the neurologist so I am able to get in tomorrow. There was apparently nothing wrong with my eye but the optician did feel that something was wrong with my optic nerve (can't remember if he said it was swollen or something was pushing onto it?
