    Im freaking out. Do I have Naegleria fowleri from a Neti Pod?

    Two days ago I had very stuffy nasal passages and found an old Neti Pot I used years ago (salt solution expired 3 years ago). Not remembering the instructions I filled it with tap water and used it twice. I happened to Google how to use this device and learn I should never use tap water in a Neti Pod as Naegleria fowleri could be in tap water. Now im convinced I have a brain eating disease that will kill me in the next. I'm truly freaking out and I'm losing my mind with anxiety. Anyone have....

    Sudden numbness on one arm, nerve pain on the other?

    About 2 weeks ago I woke up and realized the outer elbow on my left arm felt numb, only the outer part though, also there wasn’t any pain at all. Then about 2 days later I noticed my right arm had a slightly painful throbbing sensation at the elbow area, but on the inner part of the elbow, and would have what felt like electrical shocks that would shoot down to my thumb and my thumb felt numb. I noticed that when I tried to stretch this arm out it would make it feel worse. The problem has been constant....

    muscle twitch

    Hi, I am a 22 year old male and I've had random muscle twitches ( mostly upper body, no legs) at different times a day ever since middle school; in addition, when I move my head side to side fast, inside my head hurts, and I can't balance on one leg. I think there is something wrong with my nervous system - neck and spine but Im not sure.. I also think my neck and spine might be curved a bit weird because my neck is shorter than normal. I don't know if this has to do with my problem but....

    Alzheimer / Dimentia

    My mother is suffering from Dimentia and after returning from a 7 days hospital for a stomach problem, she came out not willing to walk like she did with her cane. I know and I was told that people with Dimentia tend for their condition to deteriorate if they stay in hospital too long. I believe it did. My mother is on a patch medication for her dementia and apparently there is no new medication for the disease. Mind you, I do not think any of the Alzheimer/Dimentia medication did anything for my....

    Mysterious dizziness

    Hi I’m a somewhat healthy 27 year old who doesn’t smoke and rarely drinks. When I was younger, I used to very occasionally get extremely dizzy while standing in the bathroom(and just the bathroom). This recently happened again to me when I was sick and decided to take my temperature in the bathroom, when suddenly my vision seemed to go all white and my ears started ringing. I almost fell over and had to immediately take a seat. It took about 10 minutes to subside. Does anybody know if this could....
