Nothing like what D L and Shy Ted are dealing with whatsoever, hats off to both.

Tomorrow I'm at Gobowen Hospital ( top place for dodgy fractures) Since June it genuinely feels like I've aged 10 years. I wasn't the world's fittest 64 year old,but I was walking 4-6 miles a day, and swimming 3 or 4 times a week ( having decided to substitute exercise for my bipolar meds). Now it's ,at best, a single crutch to walk 50 or 60 metres without stopping, some days I can't get out at all.
So tomorrow the man tells me if they can redo the op they ballsed up in Hereford, or if I spend the rest of my life auditioning for Long John Silver.Not sure I can handle another op anyhow, the last one was 4 hrs.

F**k getting old!

There you go ageing get yourself a dog instead of sitting on that big reclining chair, with ya arse on fire.
Get out and get some air to the fire box.

Also dogs are great at licking wounds. :wink:

Heard a woman phone in to LBC earlier. Some years ago she'd been diagnosed with arthritis. Her Drs were only interested in prescribing her strong medication which she took but reacted really badly to & could no longer take.
So she did some research on the net & found dietary advice for her condition. Some of the things she had to cut out were acidic things like Oranges & Tomatoes. I don't know the full diet.
She said that not only did the condition go away but she lost quite a bit of weight as well.
Now, did she really have arthritis in the first place? Was it just shedding weight that helped her joints to feel, so much better?
Apparently, her Drs were flabbergasted at the change in her. I wonder if they still dish out the drugs first? Probably.
Only anecdotal I know but worth looking into, I say. :thup:

I woke up at about 3 AM and was very sick. I've done this before and put it down to eating too late but this time it's not the case. On top of that now, my whole body is aching today. I had two and a half glasses of wine. Could this be a hangover? I can usually drink more than this.

Do you have any other symptoms huggy?

A friend of mine had what he thought was a stomach bug, but developed flu like symptoms on top, fever, aching joints, fatigue etc, turned out to be swine flu.

Not saying that's what you have but just keep an eye on it.

Not that I know of. I was a bit sweaty when I woke up then too.

I'll probably be OK tomorrow and realise that was just a hangover :eh:

More likely something you ate( or drank),or a stomach bug.

Here's one for you:

For a few months I've had a smell semi-permanently in my nose. It's a bit like fried onions, not particularly strong or unpleasant, but just there most of the time. No other related symptoms.

I don't want to Google it, because you always find someone saying "YOU'VE GOT CANCER!!!"

Any sensible thoughts?

No idea on the type of smell, but I had the smell of smoke - like the distant smell of a bonfire - up my nose for over 4 months. Had some headaches also so they sent me for a few MRIs and CT scans when all of a sudden it went. Specialist put it down to an issue with my sinus, I was not convinced. This was a couple of years ago, it's since come back a few times but has gone after a day or two.

Keep an eye on it and get it checked out.

Right, kind of looking for some reassurance here!

I've booked an appointment with the quacks but that's not until NEXT THURSDAY!!!!

For the last week, I've had a dull, sometimes painful ache in my right ball, bit of a lower back ache (on the right hand side) and while I can't feel any lump as such, my bollock does "feel" different (not sure if it's my mind playing tricks on me)

I know it's probably nothing but hoping some of you chaps have presented the same sort of symptoms and it's been something not very sinister!

I had the same a few years back. Turned out to be nothing and the pain went. Still go to your doctors though Matt

Cheers Prince.

I'm fairly confident it's nothing but a mate of mine was just diagnosed with bowel cancer and I don't know if I'm starting to get paranoid or something!

I'm not a hypochondriac by any stretch, can't even remember my GP's name but this has got me a bit spooked.
