  • I don’t think it’s just because of this. Look at the amount of women on the pill- surely that’s got to have an effect, then there’s soya which can mimic hormones (if you believe some research) and other chemicals we are consuming/have around us. It can’t be good for us in any way, shape or form. Sadly we have very little control over it.

  • Have you scared yourself by looking online yet? e.g http://www.sportsinjuryclinic.net/sport-injuries/foot-heel-pain

  • I wonder if it’s to do with the support level. Asics are quite supportive through the arch – I wear them as my feet are quite flat. Maybe the support is too much for you? And then possible sizing issues with some of the others?

    Should he stay or should he go?
    Personally I would like him to go and Sean Dyche replace him.

  • beckyE replied to the topic How to ease shoulder pain? in the forum Health 1 week ago

    I lived with similar symptoms to you and spent lots at an osteo thinking it was muscular/strength issue/frozen shoulder.

    The pain continued so eventually (two years!!!) I went to doc and referred to physio – she did one thing and said I have to have a scan right away. Turns out I needed a subacromial decompression and was in and out within two…[Read more]

    I’ve broken mine twice (fly lesson from same horse).

    Its takes ages to heal. Get coccyx cushions. They are a godsend – sitting on one right now, even though the last time it got broken was 20 months ago!

  • I have 2 pairs of Karrimor XLite. They are great, the material is fleecy at the top, so no see through-ness even when you bend down. Lower down is much lighter weight, so you don’t get too hot.

    One pair has a drawstring, but they fit really well and I don’t use it. The other pair has a really wide soft band.

    I tried cheaper ones, but they were…[Read more]

    I rang the hospital this morning and he was about to see the consultant (again!) but the staff nurse said his temperature was still 39 and they can’t seem to bring it down. Still waiting lab results. He hardly ever drinks (bar two cans over the whole Xmas period and about 5 pints in the whole of 2017 in the summer evenings in the pub garden) and…[Read more]

    @cat yes I’ve not heard great things either. I rang the ward this morning to fin out how he was as they kept him in overnight and the nurse said that he was with the Orthaepedic Consultant but it looks likely that he would be undergoing surgery sometime today. I’m at work as there is nothing I can do and I don’t expect they will discharge him…[Read more]

    Thank you for your help. My partner had to have the paramedics round on friday night due to his total knee replacement (he had a total knee replacement 3 years ago but you can get septic arthritis from the TKR years later.) knee being in agony. Found him sat at the foot of the stairs unable to move with a knee hot red and swollen to 3 times it…[Read more]

    Has anyone suffered from sepsis arthritis in the knee and what was the outcome please?

  • Very surprised that they wouldn’t take them back off you. My hospital has a big bin next to reception in Fracture Clinic, and another in the physio department, so you can just drop them off. I think they get inspected and cleaned up before re-used.

    Wooden walking sticks are cut to size for each patient, and get shorter and shorter until they’re…[Read more]
