HEADACHE – MIGRAINE HELP YOUR DOCTOR HELP YOURSELF

MANY PATIENTS HAVE HEADACHES.  SOME PATIENTS HAVE MIGRAINE HEADACHE.  THERE ARE CONSENSUS INTERNATIONAL CRITERIA FOR MIGRAINE HEADACHE.  THEY ARE:

RECURRENT, EPISODIC, LENGTH 4 TO 72 HOURS, QUALITY OF UNILATERAL OR THROBBING OR MOTION WORSENING OR MODERATE TO SEVERE RATING – MATCHED WITH NAUSEA, VOMITING, LIGHT-SENSITIVITY OR SOUND SENSITIVITY.

WORRISOME TYPES OF SYMPTOMS TO TELL YOUR DOCTOR ARE:

SYSTEMIC DISEASES SUCH AS DIABETES, NEUROLOGIC CONCERNS, SUDDEN ONSET, ONSET OVER 50 YEARS OLD OR UNDER 5 YEARS, PATTERN OF HEADACHE CHANGES.

OTHER THOUGHTS TO REVIEW BEFORE TALKING WITH YOUR DOCTOR ABOUT YOUR HEADACHE ARE THE FOLLOWING:

FIRST, WORST, FREQUENCY, DIFFERENCE, IMPROVED BY, WORSENED BY, ONSET, RADIATION, QUALITY OF PAIN, PAST MEDICAL HISTORY, CURRENT PRESCRIPTION DRUGS, OTC DRUGS, HERBALS, AND WHOLISTIC MEDS, ALONG WITH ANY INJURY OR TRAUMA BOTH RECENT OR IN THE PAST.

NEW MEDICINES EXIST FOR MIGRAINE HEADACHES BOTH FOR TREATMENT AND PREVENTION.  TALK WITH YOUR DOCTOR ABOUT YOUR OPTIONS AND A PLAN OF ACTION.

COCAINE “ENERGY DRINK” IS CAFFEINE BASED – ALOT ! OVERDOSE potential ?

THE LASTEST CRAZE OF ENERGY DRINKS IS THIS PRODUCT BY REDUX BEVERAGES FROM LAS VEGAS.  IT IS NOT COCAINE.  IT IS CAFFEINE BASED.  EACH UNIT HAS ABOUT 280 MG OF CAFFEINE.  THE AVERAGE COFFEE CUP HAS ABOUT 80 MG.

THE QUESTION IS:  IS IT UNETHICAL ADVERTISING TO HIGHLIGHT AND ENTICE THE "ABUSE" OF OVERUSE, OVERDOSE, AND GETTING HIGH WITH SUCH PRODUCTS?

CAFFEINE OVERDOSE IS A SERIOUS MATTER.  MANY TIMES THE KIDS THAT RELY ON THE "HIGH" MAY ALSO BE ABUSING OTHER AGENTS OF TOXICITY.

SHOULD WE ADVERTISE THE "HIGH" OF SNIFFING PAINT, PAINT IS A LEGAL PRODUCT ?

SHOULD WE ADVERTISE THE "HIGH" OF HUFFING COMPUTER AIR, AIR IS A LEGAL PRODUCT?

SHOULD WE ADVERTISE THE "HIGH" OF ALCOHOL, ALCOHOL IS A LEGAL PRODUCT?

THE ANSWER IS THAT THIS PRODUCT AND OTHERS, I BELIEVE, HIGHLIGHT ABUSE AND OVERUSE. 

TELLING A PARENT THAT THEIR SON OR DAUGHTER HAS DIED IN THE ER OR WAS D.O.A. IS A REAL EXPERIENCE THAT SOME OF US HAVE HAD TO BARE…

THE ANSWER IS: YES, IT IS UNETHICAL ADVERTISING AND MARKETING.  THE COMPANIES SHOULD BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THE "ENTICING" APPROACH.  

DEATH BY CAFFEINE IS NOT ANY MORE CALMING THAN DEATH BY OTHER OVERDOSE MEANS. PARENTS BEWARE.

PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES AND ADVERTISING FOR ILLNESS

WITH THE RECENT EXPLOSION IN MASS MARKETING AND ADVERTISING FOR PHARMACEUTICAL MEDICINES AND ILLNESS, DO YOU THINK IT IS MORALLY AND ETHICALLY CORRECT?

WITH WWW.CASTMD.COM SHOWING THE RECENT EXPLOSION OF ONE EXAMPLE OF ILLNESS MADE PROFIT, MAYBE THE "OLD" DAYS OF PHARMA ADVERTISING SHOULD BE RETURNED.  THAT IS – WHEN LIMITED ADS COULD BE RUN.

THUS THE QUESTION:  SHOULD WE AS CONSUMERS BE BOMBARDED WITH ILLNESS ADS AND DRUG THERAPIES THAT MAY OR MAY NOT HELP?  IT DOES CREATE HIGHER COSTS FOR THE MEDICINES THAT MANY PATIENTS NEED.

SOCIALIZED MEDICINE LIKE MEDICARE AND MEDICAID PROGRAMS WILL CONTINUE TO LIMIT ACCESS AND COSTS WITH SUCH BACK ROOM ADS GOING ON TO RUN UP COSTS AND USAGE.

BREAST SILICONE IMPLANTS released by FDA — DID WE LEARN ENOUGH OR STILL LEARNING

OVER 14 YEARS THE SILICONE IMPLANT STORY HAS BEEN ON HOLD.  BUT THE MANUFACTURERS HAVE LOBBIED TO REGAIN THE STRONG APPROVAL.  DESPITE THE NEW IMPLANTS UNDER A GUIDELINE OF FURTHER STUDY, THE IMPLANTS CAN BE USED.  ACTUALLY, THEY HAVE BEEN USED OVER THIS PERIOD FOR CANCER OR TRAUMA INJURIES FOR RECONSTRUCTION ALL ALONG. 

THE GROWTH IS EXPECTED TO BE A DOUBLE DIGIT NUMBER FROM NOW ON, UNDER TEN PERCENT A YEAR OVER THE PAST YEARS.  THE MARKET IS  HUGE – GREATER THAN ONE-HALF BILLION DOLLARS PER YEAR.

THE NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SCIENCE'S REPORT REACHED A "NO CONVINCING EVIDENCE" SUMMATION OF THE PROBLEM OF LEAKAGE, RUPTURE, OR DISINTEGRATION CAUSING AN INCREASE OF OTHER DISEASES SUCH AS LUPUS, IMMUNOLOGICAL DISORDERS, OR CANCERS.

IN ONE STUDY HOWEVER, OF NEARLY 1000 WOMEN, ABOUT ONE-THIRD HAD TO HAVE REPLACEMENT OR REMOVAL OF THE "DEVICE."  OF OVER 300 WOMEN, HAVING MRI STUDIES, SHOWED 69 PERCENT WITH LEAKAGE AT ONE POINT.

OVER 260,000 WOMEN HAD BREAST IMPLANTS LAST YEAR WITH THE SALINE-FILLED DEVICES, NOT THE SILICONE TYPE.  NEW RULES ONLY ALLOW WOMEN OVER AGE 22 YEARS OR THOSE NEEDING BREAST RECONSTRUCTION TO USE THE DEVICES.

SILICONE DEVICES HAVE BEEN USED FOR ABOUT THREE DECADES NOW.  THE "HOLD" WAS AFTER MANY WOMEN HAD LEAKAGE, DEFORMITY, PAIN, AND ILLNESS WHEN THE DEVICES FAILED. 

MANY WOMEN HAVE CONTRACTURE, FALLING, SCAR TISSUE, AND DEFORMITY.

ONE COMPANY IS REPLACING RUPTURED DEVICES AND PAYING FOR THE SURGERY AND NEW DEVICES.  HEALTH INSURERS DO NOT ROUTINELY COVER SUCH DEVICES OR SCANS TO CHECK FOR LEAKS, RUPTURES, OR OTHER PROBLEMS.

SO – WHERE ARE YOU ON THE SUBJECT…..TIME TO READ THE "SEQUOIA SEED."

METH BODY PACKIN’ ELMO EXTREME – BUSTED IN COLORADO

One of the best stories for the holiday season, is the recent bust of the California to Colorado methamphetamine bust.

It was reported by the DEA in Colorado, the drug ring was using the Sesame Street character "Elmo" for the meth "mule."

None other than "Tickle Me Elmo Extreme" was apprehended with the pre-street loot !

Just like meth, able to cause the toxic agitation, convulsions, repetitive movements – the Elmo Extreme character laughs, rolls, and hits the ground uncontrollably…or until it shuts off.

Unfortunately, the infamous "war on drugs" has not shut off the resources, money, or mules for meth, cocaine, crack, crank, weed, or other drugs of abuse – especially at the southern US border.  With the Afghanistan poppy crop at one of its highest production years, the disconnect of drug curtailment and drug support continues within our own government.  And that is a "mind stretch."

COACH BOBBY KNIGHT – INAUGURAL INDUCTION INTO NATIONAL COLLEGIATE BASKETBALL HALL OF FAME OR SEE HIS MUGSHOT ON THE “most” WANTED POSTERS ?

IN THE NEWS RECENTLY IS THE FACT THAT THE PLAYER-ABUSIVE COACH KNIGHT WILL BE WELCOMED IN THE INAUGURAL INDUCTION TO THE NEW HALL OF FAME.

THIS IS AMAZING.  MAYBE WE SHOULD INDUCT ALL OUR CHILD ABUSERS INTO SUCH FAME?

INTERVENTION AND COUNSELING. DO NOT PROMOTE HIS NEANDERTHAL BEHAVIOUR.  METH?

What did I miss?  Because you are a coach at a University, allows

you to physically abuse and psychologically misuse your players? 

NOT !   And not infront of national television audiences.

If anyone really cares whether or not Coach Knight breaks the record he is aimed at.  His abuse continues…just like that of domestic violence.  Now, the honeymoon period of flowers, forget-me-nots, and joking style.  But, as many Emergency Physicians know,  the cycle of his violence toward players, coaches, referees, and fans will only continue…Coach Knight has proven that already.  Is he on METH?

There is NO lesson learned here.  From the tape, the athlete’s TMJ now has a problem for life…Very difficult area once injured to rehab !  The athlete’s head “flew back” … not a “love tap” like the talking heads were saying on some shows trying to justify that violence.

Coach Few of Gonzaga Bulldogs and other coaches must take the lead here.  No person will gain self-respect, dignity, and optimism by being assaulted by an authority figure…just ask any child abuse victim !

 

FIRE HIM NOW

acetaminophen recall – not “tylenol”

URGENT

For my readers, the info reviewed is just acetaminophen from a manufacturer of "generic" drug, used by many "brands" of acetaminophen.  Some mentioned are generic walgreens, cvs, costo type "brands" of acetaminophen.

Therefore, before buying any acetaminophen, ask the seller, pharmacist, or agent of sale, if this bottle is involved.

The probability of any injury approaches zero, if not zero, as this sounds like  compounding machine flecks of metal, not shards.

Again, be informed.  Don't worry, and be happy.
