Hi, @leigho55 – good to hear from you. Sounds like you were a real advocate for your own health and getting to an appropriate diagnosis, though it took some time and struggle.

How is your pain level currently?

21 hours ago · hypogonadism in Men's Health

Hi, @marksnow and @glenner075 – sounds like you have something in common with both having a recent diagnosis of hypogonadism.

Here is some Mayo Clinic information on this diagnosis https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/male-hypogonadism/symptoms-causes/syc-20354881. I also wanted to introduce you to @predictable @roush @bob76farmer @casey0595, who may have some thoughts on this condition where your body doesn't produce enough testosterone.

What symptoms have you been experiencing, @marksnow and @glenner075?

Hi, @dgag8090 – you are correct, there is not a "High Calcium Score" group in the Connect directory. Perhaps @mark430 can point to the discussion he was suggesting? Potentially it was this Connect thread https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/high-calcium-score?

21 hours ago · Otter Live Captions Application - Does It Work Well? in Hearing Loss

Hi, @mmyatt01757 – Helping not only yourself but others who are hard of hearing in a public meeting like you are looking at doing seems like a worthy goal.

I'd like to tag some others in the hearing loss group, like @joangela @mtnyankee @contentandwell @marijaneb who may be familiar with apps like Otter that listen to spoken words and transcribe them into notes. @mikepa has talked about apps like this and may have some input on this, as well.

Is the board open to you using this technology for the meeting? Have you tried out any other apps like this before, @mmyatt01757?

Hi, @mrser52 – I'd like to tag @healthytoday @pjss48 @gingerw @cyndy76 @catcatanzaro60 @petangelkat1@oprah have mentioned bipolar disorder and may have some thoughts on treating bipolar with electroconvulsive therapy (ECT).

Here is some Mayo Clinic information on that therapy https://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/electroconvulsive-therapy/about/pac-20393894.

mrser52 – are you looking into this treatment possibility for yourself? If so, what are your impressions thus far?

Hi, @peggyn@johnbishop @artscaping @wilcy @cbnewpain @cocodab also may have some input related to OTC supplements for neuropathy — whether they have read about them or taken them, and if so, how it went.

22 hours ago · Serotonin syndrome in Epilepsy & Seizures

Hi, @bruceg – we have had some members talk about serotonin syndrome like @mommapsych @texasduchess @sandij @carm. @artscaping may also have some thoughts on this.

This is some information from Mayo Clinic on serotonin syndrome you may find helpful: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/serotonin-syndrome/symptoms-causes/syc-20354758

Have you been diagnosed with serotonin syndrome, @bruceg? Or are you having symptoms you suspect could be from this?
