Have You Gotten Your Flu Shot Yet?

A: I never get it. Iíve never gotten the flu. Iíve been around many people who have had it, even my own sister, but I donít seem to contract it.. I avoid the shots because I think they are not good to get at least for me. I have discovered that every year I get the shot I get the flu and most years I donít get the shot I donít get the flu.

Restless Legs Syndrome - Hi, I have a question about RLS. Is it related to Charley Horses? I woke up

A: 11 Feb 2012 Hi Again Martha, I don''t know anything about Reglan, or magnesium/zinc. But I was also getting screaming pains in my feet and legs. I tried Flexeril and Baclofen at separate times. Both seemed to help, but not eliminate the problem. I did find a solution. Someone recommend I take 1000 mg of Vit C at night with dinner. I was quite skeptical, but also in urgent need of help. It has totally worked. I still take 1 of either a Flexeril or a Baclofen. But I give credit to the Vit C. I wonder if this is a symptom of scurvy. I have to look up scurvy some night. Votes:+0CommentVote upReport pup676711 Feb 2012 Hi Martha... muscle cramps or "charley horses" are not related to RLS. Yes, Reglan does cause restlessness, not only of the legs but everywhere. Muscle cramps are not...

oral lichen planus

A: Hello Sue, Here are some things you might try. Alkalize the body. Minerals - Like Mineral Chi Tonic Probioics - like Probiotic 11 Enzymes - like Proactazyme plus A natural oral steroid you can take is Yucca. I would also wash the mouth with Silver Shield 1 teaspoon 2 x a day. I would focus on eating lots of low glycemic fruits and veggetables. Especially Green Vegetables. I would cut out ALL artifical sweenters. Make sure you are drinking plenty of water. Has the doctor said anything about this being auto immune? If so I would add Licorice Root ATC Concentrate if there is no issue with High Blood Pressure. I think the key here is to balance the body"s pH and get the stress out of your life, if that is an issues. To learn more...


What Causes Nocturnal Leg Cramps?

A: Usually people associate leg cramps with the term ''charley-horse,'' which are painful sensations of tightness and tension in the muscles of the leg. There are three primary areas where uncomfortable cramping may occur. These are the calf, the foot, and the thigh. Nocturnal leg cramps are muscle pains that occur during the night when a person is sleeping, causing sleep disturbances that may ultimately ruin a good night''s sleep. Although they may occur simultaneously with other sleep disorders, nocturnal leg cramps do not have a causal link to any known underlying medical disorders. They predominantly affect the elderly and pregnant women, two groups that tend to have relatively poor blood circulation in the limbs. Taking a step further back, nocturnal leg cramps are found in middle-aged...

drowning question

A: at what stage? . Immersion artefacts occur in any corpse immersed in water, irrespective of whether death was from drowning or the person was dead on entering the water. Therefore, immersion artefacts do not contribute to proof of death by drowning. However, such artefacts are typically the most striking findings in a body recovered from water. These immersion artefacts include: goose-skin, or anserina cutis, which is roughening, or pimpling of the skin, skin maceration, or washer-woman"s skin, which is swelling and wrinkling of the skin, and adipocere, which is the transformation of the fatty layer beneath the skin into a soap-like material - a process requiring many weeks or months. 2.
