How many left handed laptop users complain about carpal tunnel as opposed to right handed ?(I realize there are fewer left handed to begin with) I have noticed a damaging kind of heat coming from the battery or hard drive under my right hand, also a stiffening of the tendons which seems to shift among my fingers and seems more a reaction to the computer which is hot under the right hand; thus my question: is it possible the tightening of the tendons is due not to use but to the effect of being too close to the machinery?
General Arthritis Q & A
I had to be on 35 days of Levaquin during a course of lumpectomy and catheter insertion for mammosite delivery surgery because of a strept infection. Since then I have had pain & difficulty walking, have now been diagnosed with osteoporosis, osteonecrosis and despite ingesting 500iu per day of vitamin D only test to having 14 ng. Could the levaquin be the culprit, as I am only 44 and despite the isolated 5mm DCIS breast tumor was basically healthy?
I am 28yrs old. My sedimitation rate was high at 28pts 3mo ago now it is even higher at 52pts. My urine cpk is very high at 2420 and my blood cpk is high at 142. I am in so much pain in my joints and abdomin, but my doctor says that there is nothing to worry about. Any advice would be great.
I am a 32yr old female w/osteopenia -1.4 through hips. I was breastfeeding X 14mo but have stopped. I have a mirena IUD, no problems. I assume I ovulate, periods are irregular and light (Mirena). i take 1500 calcuim w/ vit D and also distance run. My last marathon was 2/07 but have not run distance lately. I have No medical history or allergies. What treatment option is best, removing Mirena and restarting OCP, keep Mirena and take premarin/estrogen (if so how much), or do nothing and recheck it later (If so how long)
