Commented on Avoid Bedbugs When You Travel
I just got back from a trip with a friend. We stayed in a nice, highly rated hotel and when I got back and unpacked my suitcase, bed bugs! I would say the main thing I will change from now...
Commented on Atorvastatin
I would stay away from Lipitor. Both my mom and my dad were on it for a while. It definitely helped their cholesterol go down - both of them... But they had a whole range of side effects. All of...
Commented on Allergies
I am allergic to dust mites - I got hypoallergenic covers for both my mattress and pillows and that as worked wonders. I agree very much with the article - allergies are a big pain and don't get much sympathy......
Commented on Mammogram Recommendations Changing
I completely agree with this - testing needs to start early. At the same time though, my wife went for a mammogram late last year and we got a false positive. The stress and worry that it caused were definitely...
Commented on Counting Calories
I have to say - while restaurants understating the caloric value of items on their menus is definitely no good, this campaign as a whole is a great thing. Generally raising knowledge of what foods / meals are higher or...
Commented on Chocolate for Hiccups
Mmmmmmm yummmmm. I think I may have to go test this one out... too bad I don't have the hiccups!...
Commented on MD Angry About New Book: Top Screwups Doctors Make
Though the title maybe could be different, I think it's a great book to have. More so than attacking, doctors, it lets patients know what to look out for so they can make sure that those mistakes don't happen to...
Commented on Sleep Paralysis Can Be Terrifying
This only happened to me once when I was playing around with lucid dreaming. I was sleeping and realized I was dreaming. I woke up out of the dream, but was still in sleep paralysis - terrifying! Its important to...
Commented on Voltaren Gel Versus Diclofenac
I was prescribed Voltaren as a pill, not a topical treatment, for an inflammation in my leg. It worked extremely well......
Commented on Headache
I used to use Excedrin all the time for headaches - it works fantastically. I started reducing the amount I took though when my doctor told me that using it too often can actually give you more headaches. Besides that,...
Commented on Zolpidem
I was prescribed Zolpidem once. I got extremely dizzy and threw up about 10 minutes after taking it... that was the last time I tried that... And in response to KLG above, I have taken Melatonin and it helps me...
Commented on Cough
I find the best thing for a cough is to catch it early. The second I start feeling even the smallest tingle in my throat, lots of OJ, vitamin C pills, chicken soup, and rest. I definitely think I'll try...
Commented on Heartburn
Mine gets really bad at night - I put raisers under the front legs of my bed so I wasn't sleeping flat but with my head higher than my feet. Just a tip :)...
Commented on Dandruff
Head and Shoulders works great for me......
Commented on Gas
Ahahahah, a fart chart. That's great. I may try that even though I don't particularly suffer from gas. When I do get gas though, I have tried fennel seed tea. It does the job!...
Commented on Eczema
I developed eczema a few years ago... The itching got worse and worse. Olive oil, but felt gross. I was suggested to use Vaseline before showers because water increases dryness, and Vaseline stops the water. That definitely helps. My doc...
Commented on Ibuprofen
Definitely make sure to take it with food, but other than that Ibuprofen works miracles for me. I fractured my elbow a few years back and instead of giving me pain meds, my doctor told me to take four ibuprofen,...
Commented on Quick Tips For Hiccups
There's another page on this website that suggests swallowing a tablespoon of sugar. That works pretty well......
