    Head injuries in the past, headaches after drinking now

    My head hurts before my legs get fatigued in track sprinting

    Hello, I've been doing high level track sprinting for a year now and am running into quite an annoying problem. After running full go for just 60m or repetitive sprints all the pain goes to my head. I get dizzy and sometimes start losing vision. It's almost always my head that goes first and don't even have the chance to get leg muscle fatigue. Any ideas on why this is happening?

    Dirty EMG/Familiar ALS after 2 years of fasciculations?

    Hi, I'm a 29 years old Caucasian male working as a programmer, my father developed bulbar-onset ALS at the age of 54 and passed away after 2.5 years.

In August 2015, I started to feel a heaviness/subclinical weakness in my left....

I was helping my wife in the kitchen and was continuing to perform tasks, but completely lost about 20 minutes of memory. I had no idea what I had done with the salad I fixed or where I put it.

    Father's health is declining, what could be wrong with him?

    My father is 64 years old, and has trouble walking and getting up from a chair. He limps a lot, has a bad back, and seems like he may fall over any moment. He is often unable to fall asleep and stay asleep; he was hospitalized briefly on his 64th birthday a few months ago with an irregular heartbeat, and went for an emergency EKG again a few weeks later after being unable to sleep all night with a severe headache, which I heard came out normal. Since then, he has not had any serious incidents. He....
