    Does anyone have these symptoms?

    I have severe numbness in my neck that goes into my head and causes dizziness to the point that I must hang onto something or sit/lay down or fall down, which at my age would not be good. I used to get these symptoms once a week and now I get them many times a day to the point that I am almost house bound. I have asked my Dr. several time what causes this problem and I keep getting the same answer, that it's from the arthritis in my neck. I had an MRI on my neck in 2015 and again in 2017 and....

  • Hit my head

    2 days ago I hit my head while fainting. I hit it on the corner of a dresser on the back of my head. I haven't had any serious head injury symptoms. Today I got a headache which feels like a tension headache but I get those all the time. I don't know if the headache is caused by the bump or just normal tension headache. The bump on my head is sore and soft. I'm sort of a hypochondriac so please don't say it's deadly or serious. Just need to know if I should get it checked out....

    Pain and Alzheimer's

    In response to the question about pain perception in persons with Alzheimer's, I had a personal experience with that very thing. My mother had the disease-- the most terrible thing I can imagine. I had taken her to her ophthalmologist who detected a retinal bleed that needed immediate attention. He performed an injection to administer local anesthesia. I was an OR RN at the time. Usually people are sedated at the time of such injections. I was amazed that my mother showed no anxiety or fear,....
