My folks are getting old, my parents split up and re-married, so I have two sets of aging parents. As they sink into retirement, I begin to worry about possible cognitive decline, and what is to be done when they can't take care of themselves anymore.

I know that every generation has to deal with this, but really what is there to do?

Homeopathically your options are coconut oil and avacado for omega 3's. They are shown to be preventative maintenance for dementia. Also, ginseng root extract and flax seed. I heard that colene(sp?) and oiracetam may be used as well.

>Prof Roy Taylor, from Newcastle University, told the BB "It's a real watershed moment. Before we started this line of work, doctors and specialists regarded type 2 as irreversible."

Hurr, fat people lose weight and no longer have diabetic symptoms. BUT HOW DOES IT WORK??? A WATERSHED MOMENT!!!

I've had a sore/tender throat/neck for the past month or so and I little while back I noticed one of the lymph nodes under my jaw was swollen and kinda firm/hard.

I'm going to the doctor to have him look at it, but I'm kinda freaking out. I'm 26 and I know it's rare to get something like lymphoma at this age, but still.

Anyone ever have anything similar?

transdermal patch placement

I was wondering how exactly patch placement affects the dosage I'm getting. Either in general or specifically for clonidine patches.
In the past I've been putting them on my arms or around the collarbone but this last week I put it on the back of my hand and noticed it started wearing off about 12 hours before the week was up, while in the past the patches (at least the ones on my arms) seem to have a limited effect for a couple days after the week is up.
Is my body fat slowing the release of the drug? Should I not put it on the back of my hand or similar places with little fat?

I'm also interested in any tips to get the most out of each patch because my doctor is trying to scale back my dose a bit more quickly than I'm comfortable with.

Having severe pain that I suspect to be Kidney pain (never experienced it, so don't know for sure). It's just below my middle back, on my left side, just about where my ribcage ends. It's been worsening for the past week. No other apparent symptoms, other then frequent urination. Would I be wasting anyones time going to the ER? Pain is 6-8/10.

Hey man, this might be a long shot but the same happened to me when I was younger. I was racking up quite the er bills going back and forth and they never saw anything(they were prob convinced i was a drug seeker because long hair jeans etc) I still have all of the ct/mri/xray discs somewhere and i've thought of digging them up and looking again for myself. At any rate though I ended up doing a lot of research and gave up pop and milk, started drinking distilled water and homemade lemonade they said it would break up stones and dairy causes stones and inflammation in the kidneys/bladder. It was a night and day change within a couple days. I got lax and a year later it returned. Fed up at this point because the gallbladder attack was an unimaginable pain I took the advice of a doctor I had found online to cut out the dairy and crap again cold turkey and again, it went away. This caused me later to become obsessed with research long story short i went entirely vegan and my health has been perfect since. I understand it would be hard for a lot of people to think about but it saved me a lot of hell. I was tired of racking up the er bills and my life has benefited in every way

Get medicaid folks if you don't make enough money and have no insurance. It makes things a lot easier and even if it's .gov based insurance. You will get far better care. If you wait until something goes wrong to seek treatment without health insurance, it's like you have no health foundation to really stand on. Only takes like a week to kick in. And these is emergency state aid for emergencies
where people do not have insurance for temporary financial assistance.
Should be filed within like two weeks of being billed?

My weeks worth of shots, 9 shots, $600 $800 or so dollars, 1 dollar at the pharmacy, and it was the hospital people who screwed up to begin with.

Dehydration

Seems like I'm chronically dehydrated. Piss is dark orange, my eyes and mouth are dry as shit, and I feel tired and sick to the point that I skip meals. I'm trying to drink water as much as I can, but it's not enough to keep me hydrated when whiskey and speed is involved.

So I'm simply asking, what are some good ways to keep hydrated and enhance the water's hydration effect?

Speed definately will make your pis dark, brown whatever dark color. It is what it does. You can actually drink like a glass of water every hour. Maybe stagger another glass in between here and there. i had had it clear up. Eat ice cold cereal with fruit, oranges, cantelope, grapes, banana, extra milk and an extra glass of water.

You have to simply eat, even just as a formality, as in just take 5 10 minutes.
Make smoothies with yogurt, and blended fruit. Strawberies and banana are good. Always have juice every 4 hours if you happen to binge for days at a time.
You pee can clear up, take a multivitamin, and a B-12 complex vitamin at least
twice every 12 hours. Your pee will eventually be a mellow yellow look.

Initially always though you pee will be dark for a moreso day two, but would clear up. One note, if this is like street speed, some speds are taxing on the liver pretty harsh, but studies show some speeds taken with acetaminophen and alcohol is like 4 times as toxic on the liver. So tread lightly if you back hurts or whatever, take ibuprophen instead. Limit the drinks
enough to just feel kinda nice. It is known you can drink a lot of booze on alcohol and that will
be like an ongoing feel like crap hangover, even while still drinking. A watery type drink every hour, beam and sprite with lots of ice and splash some water in it is better than straight shots.

But in all if you keep somewhat of a eating hydration program going you will feel much better. As well people who do speed may neglect their brushing teeth, taking a bath shower. These are important as bleeding gums will make you feel crappy, showers will absorb water into your system as well.

Age 28
Obesity and smoker.. sedentary. 255 lbs at 6 feet tall
My cardiologist hadn't seen me for 6 years so he just wrote "NSR - Nonspecicif ST-T (something)" then signed it. ST-T nonspecific abnormalities can be bad, or benign. I think the NSR is normal sinus rhythm though. I have other photos of it ive taken too if this ones too crappy.

Associate gave me the you dumbass for saying I would quit smoking before I stopped drinking, which was basically minimal (binging here and there,) anyway. Well stopping smoking worked fine and not drinking followed in short time after. That was the plan
and stuck by it

I think most doctors would say, and they do say that stopping smoking now is the best thing you can do for your immediate health. It is pretty rough on your heart, and everything else to boot. I know because smoking off and on, that first cig defiantly changes ones thought process, assuming blood pressure, heart rate, and whatever else.

Some may differ on my opinion but I would stop smoking above all else to begin with.
I assume Vyvanse is an amphetamine. Not so good. The subs, and the benzos, I
would see no real issue for now. Do though, get a bit of exercise every day. You should
find , even if it takes a month that things do become easier to get by in subsequent days
at a certain point. I drank heavily fi x amount of years, like non stop drinking. People were
kinda amazed I made it this far, a few seizures. One serious which if somebody, dear mother wasn't nearby by, I likely would ot be living, as I coughed up enough white foamy stuff to actually choke. Doctors were concerned if I would live or die. So it was intensive care for at least a week. But as of now not drinking for about a month, I do that binge then quit for a while, but each day becomes easier to cope, sure have bit so great days but
in reality, I am not stuck with smoking a gig every half hour hour, withdrawing from drinking is basic hell feeling. Benzos help. But your subs and benzos, maybe it's time to put s much effort into ending these drugs and out as much effort into reinventing yourself as you do
smoking, etc. I personally lost way too many years getting nowhere drinking and smoking,
mindset in the wrong place where getting drugs and all was just set in and not much more. A straight 15 + years basically gone, when I don't drink, I do see an actual tomorrow every time I go to bed.

Yeah that's all true, but you aren't doing your cause justice by coming off the way you are.

Widespread use of antibiotics, primarily in our food systems (in factory meat farms), is placing artificial evolutionary pressures on bacteria and other micro-organisms, and is causing the emergence of bacteria resistant to our antibiotics. We're abusing a valuable medicine to the effect of rendering it useless in the long term.

Similar criticisms could be made about the infiltration of business-economics in our vaccination programs, which are IVing into children upwards of 20,000x more mercury and formaldehyde than is permitted by the EPA's maximum exposure limits. And let alone the fact that mere exposure and a direct shot to your blood-brain barrier are very different things, or that developing humans are far more vulnerable to the effects of mercury and formaldehyde poisoning than adults, or that the diseases which we vaccinate against had already declined substantially over 100 years ago around the time when we started living in more sanitary environments, or the fact that we can treat measles, mumps, rubella, influenza, and tetanus effectively without harsh vaccinations.

Yeah, I've had the same feeling before when a mole directly in the center of my chest, almost as if it were a holy trinity with my nipples, was removed to test for cancer when I was a kid; luckily nothing was there, but it all comes down to identity and who you see yourself as; there was once a survey for how people felt once they were tested positive for HIV/AIDS, and at first people obviously did not like it at all but once certain people found out that their positive was a false-positive, they were actually more disappointed and even sadder than when they found out they had contracted HIV because they lost their identity.

Sooner or later you'll identify whom you are without your gallbladder, but the more important thing is to truly know who you are and accept it.

Hey /med/, I have made a doctor's appointment to take a look at this, but the soonest availability is like 2 weeks from now. So I figured you guys might be able to help me out for the time being, as my symptoms seem to be developing further.

Basically, I have been experiencing this warm sensation in my butt cheek/thigh. It began 5 days ago and it was just a thin band of warmth running down the outside of my leg, and it would come and go for a few seconds intermittently throughout the day, like someone pouring warm water down my leg. Now, starting yesterday, it has gotten stronger and wider, it doesn't feel like a single narrow band, it's more like radiating heat across my butt cheek like I'm sitting on half of a heating pad, and it is present for more than a few seconds, and seems to be more frequent.

Googling this has led to a handful of ideas, from Sciatica, to spinal damage, to a neurological disorder. I'm not terribly concerned right now because it isn't actually painful, but the feeling of an uncontrollable heating pad on one side of my butt is starting to approach 3/10 on the "annoyed for no good reason" scale.

So, yeah, any ideas? What it might be, what could I do in the short term to relieve it?

Thanks for reading!

99.9% of the time this is "sciatica" due to piriformis syndrome, i.e. the piriformis being chronically hypertonic and impinging the sciatic nerve, often due to improper gait or standing/sitting posture, which eventually leads to inflammation of the myelin sheath of the nerve, causing tingling/warm/cold/burning/numbness/weakness. do piriformis stretches, here are 3:

>the "pigeon pose" from yoga, making sure to keep your front shin perpendicular to the direction you are facing

>lie on floor on back. cross the sore leg over your good leg, shin on thigh, then reach through and pull your bottom knee up to your chest

>sit on a chair, cross one leg over, shin on thigh. keeping your chest out and chin out, lean forward at the waist until you feel a stretch in the butt area.

also you can use a foam roller (don't get the stupid gimmicky ones with bumps or grids, just get a flat cylinder), tennis ball, or lacrosse ball to massage the area, sitting on it tilted to one hip at a time.

also applying heat (my favorite is a hot water bottle) - can be electric heating pad, Thermacare patches from walgreens/walmart, microwavable pouch of beads or seeds or whatever, or even just some fist-sized stones heated up in a pot of water then wrapped in a thin cloth - to the area for 1 hr or more will help.

basically when muscles are tight, heat, pressure, and stretching will alleviate it. if after genuinely trying these things to relax the piriformis your symptoms do not change, then it could possibly be a disc or spine issue, meaning you would need to try chiro/pt and maybe ortho surgery, but this is very rare and wouldn't just appear out of nowhere in most cases

I was explaining the word "bruise" to a learner who didn't know it and the phrase "black eye" and I was talking about how we always call them black but they can be lots of colours.. they start pink.. then go purple... then black.. purple.. then blue.. then green.. then yellow.. and finally fade away

but it occurred to me that this might be a white thing, with white skin being so transparent

Well this is clearly a stupid question so I thought I'd ask on here, what colour is your skin and what colours do bruises go for you?

its the same as white people but with the darkness of the skin color overlaid. so on a black person there is still a brown/black component of the bruising, its just a little harder to see because there is less contrast. think of tattoos on a black person
