Mar 2, 2013 · Shingles in Brain & Nervous System

@shahin

Are you currently taking any vitamin D supplements? This time of year, it’s too cold to sunbathe throughout most of the planet, but supplementation is always a viable option.

If you’re wondering why I’m suggesting vitamin D supplements, you may want to take a look at the following threat here on MC Connnect: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussions/2986-shingles-during-pregnancy-and-after-is-there-hope-for-me

Mar 1, 2013 · Maternity Fashions in Women's Health

I have got to hand it to the author of this one. While I’ve never before heard of Katherine Mendel Henderson, she appears to be a writer with a very promising career ahead of her.

Here is an expert from the article referenced in the post above that I thought best summarized the subject, context and quality of the article about a topic – pregnancy style / maternity fashions – that I admittedly knew nothing about prior to reading this:

“Being pregnant doesn’t mean you can’t keep up with the trends and feel fashionable. The key to dressing modern and sexy during pregnancy and creating a stylish maternity look is to pick out the trends you like and adapt them to your new body.”

Jan 8, 2013 · Does anyone else out there have seasonal depression? in Depression & Anxiety

I came across this article the other day and it seems pretty cut-and-dry in terms of both problem and solution: http://vitamind3blog.com/2011/07/seasonal-affective-disorder-depression-vitamin-d-deficiency-seattle/

Sounds to me like low vitamin D3 levels. Check out this site, which specializes in reporting about the medical ailments associated with obtaining too little vitamin D: http://vitamind3blog.com/

Sep 9, 2012 · Hip revision pain in Joint Replacements

Here it is: http://www.eganmedical.com/Biofreeze-16-oz-Gel-Pump-p/orprg-biofreeze32pmp.htm

The reason you’ve probably never seen this before is because only physical therapists and chiropractors can purchase it from the manufacturer. I guess the company selling it here has one or more of them on staff…

Sep 9, 2012 · Hip revision pain in Joint Replacements

To heck with Morphine and other addictive opioid drugs. You couldn’t pay me enough to put that crap into my body. I typically use topical, non-narcotic pain relievers.

While you’re waiting to get in touch with the right people, I can’t help but suggest you consider trying a topical pain relieving gel called Biofreeze. it works, plain and simple.

One other option may be a hip brace like the one made by It’s You Babe. I can’t guarantee that the two suggestions will bring you relief, but if I were in your situation this is what I would do.

Here is the hip brace I had mentioned: http://www.eganmedical.com/Hip-Brace-p/ormt-hb01.htm

If you search hard enough, you should be able to locate the Biofreeze on the same site.

Sep 9, 2012 · frozen shoulder in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I know of a particular type of neoprene shoulder brace that is designed to treat general stiffness in addition to pain. It’s made by a company called FLA Orthopedics. I don’t know for certain that it will help, but I suppose it can’t hurt to try.

In the event you decide to give it a shot, the following is the one I’m familiar with and referenced in the above paragraph: http://www.eganmedical.com/Neoprene-Shoulder-Support-p/orbs-16-500.htm
