@imallers and all HEAT WE had a Dr. talk with us yesterday about staying cool . Hydrate more then usual as you are sweating also drink Smartwater or the like to replace your electrolytes, ICE under armpits,groin,behind knees and put your feet on the ice this will cool the whole body of course she said stay indoors with a.c. on wear light colored clothing. Know your medication some will be effected maybe by heat Have someone check on you Avoid strenuous activity,alcohol,caffeine. These where the Dr,s suggestions just passing on .

@tennisgolf I hope it isn't a staple . Maybe just a stitch that is caught in tissue of something. Give it a little while longer then see. Let me know what you find out . We care here at connect

@tennisgolf Yes you can see on xray if there is a staple its just like anything in the body like I have wires in from heart surgery as my chest was opened . Pacemakers can be see its just a glob but lets you know something is there . Wonder why they staples the duct instead of using a stich that desolved like our surgeon in the O.R. did . Maybe that's the new thing? Talk to your surgeon

1 day ago · HELP!!! DOG BITE on nose—lose of cartilage and infection in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

@kerrissad Welcome to connect . I'm concerned about infection setting in . I think I would suggest go see a specialist such as a infectious Dr. If the ENT isn't helping you need to see other Dr.s before it gets worse. Is there any drainage coming from the nose? Either way it needs to be taken care of by a Dr. Please let us know how she is doing .

1 day ago · Fibromyalgia in Autoimmune Diseases

@sundance6 I have heard they link Fibromyalgia and Lyme disease noe and there is a website that says it is coming from out gut its called now leaky gut . A Dr. in Palm Springs who use to be a cardiosurgeon on pediactric patient doesn't practice anymore and has developed a medicine that has several herbs in it. On the website fedupwithfatigue.com they talk about this blood test . I was diagnosed by trigger points that was all the rheumatologis new back in the 90,s I have started taking some of the herbs mentioned by the Dr. but of course the fibro malic Ive been on for years does help relieve the pain.
