Tue, Mar 17 2:59pm · Mayo Clinic: Thank you in COVID-19

@colleenyoung Thanks for all this info. This morning Bloomberg news (very straightforward and reliable) stated that the government has intentionally decided to set back the economy in this situation. Yes, young people can spread it, but for all but the at-risk population, the recovery rate is close to 100%, There is more than meets the eye. Does @mkjames think that suppression of ideas you might disagree with is the way to go?

@mkjanes. I am taking this opportunity to make a general comment on this C-virus situation. This appears to me as a media-driven crisis in collusion with government entities. These are the same people (politicians) who gave us the Viet Nam War, which ended badly, and the Iraq war, which has never ended in its ramifications.. We have had epidemics (even pandemics) before, which have never before had this level of hype. Why not advise or require those at risk (age, health conditions) instead of punishing the entire population and destroying the economy?

@firelady— having had LP for a few years, followed by burning mouth syndrome (BMS), and seen top oral pathology experts in NYC and Boston, I can tell you that oral LP would not be improved by having teeth removed. Also, standard treatment for oral LP is steroid shots. They work, but probably not a good idea long term. Beyond that, there is nothing. Don't waste time going to doctors. BMS never goes away.

scotty 1946- Did you have to inject it yourself? The needle etc looks pretty scary.

To Dorosina, You are so right about discipline and exercise. Actually healthy living in general is the best gift you can give yourself. I wish I could get my brother to reform, but he resists.

My brother has type 2 diabetes. He was just put on trulicity. There are many warnings about dangerous side effects. Has anyone had experience with this drug?
