When I was in jr high I had wry neck. The pain is intense and you can not move your head. Anyway, two other times I believe it has come back. I did not return to the doctor. The second time was years ago when I fell on some ice. This time I think it's because I started lifting weights again (after a long time off) and I dorked something up in there. The pain is almost as intense but extends a little down in to back behind the shoulder. It takes a few days before the pain lets up enough to be manageable but even after a weak I can turn my head and still feel it. There is also like a "click" or twitch or something when I move my head a certain way. What should I do about this? Is it worth going to the doctor and paying some money for them to tell me what? Deal with it? What kind of exercise can I do for those muscles? The only thing I do is pop tylenol (how much can you really take before it dorks your liver?) and take long hot showers.

perianal cyst treament options?

perianal cyst treatment. I have a perianal cyst which periodically becomes inflamed and then returns to normal. I usually get a prescription from the doctor for an antibiotic which helps reduce the inflammation. I take fiber supplements to loosen the stools so bowel movements are not so painful. I have recently had an inflammation which hasn't responded as quickly as usual. I'm aware that surgery is the treatment of choice for this problem however I've had a number of surgeries in the last 5 years that make me very reluctant to once again return to the hospital. I've had triple bypass surgery, emergency surgery for a ruptured appendix, a carotid scraping which was somewhat bungled and resulted in my losing my voice for 6 months, shoulder surgeries... well you get the picture. I'm looking for recommendations to alleviate the pain and help treat this without surgery at this time, such as sitz baths etc... I just can't bear the thought of another surgery right now.

Brilliant "dinner hacks" anyone?

Nutrition filter: I am looking for unique ideas for making quick, easy, heathy, inexpensive dinners (in my case, for two) every night... or at least most nights. "Dinner Hacks" you might say. I feel like I've tried all the standard "solutions" already (for example, cooking a few big meals on the weekend and eating leftovers the rest of the week). There must be something else I can try.

Is my chiroprator a nut?

Is my chiropractor talking nonsense? I have been seeing a cranial chiropractor since hurting my neck in a car crash. So today in my session she was gently fingering the top of my spine, base of my skull area, and she said that she had pinpointed the problem area because she could feel my nerves 'fizzing'. I think she is right about finding the location of the injury cause thats where I get the most pain when she touches me. But can she really be feeling my nerves fizz. Is that scientifically possible?

Ech, you're giving me a coronary!

The "new, state of the art" cardio machines at my gym always tell me my heart rate is unreasonably high (170 beats per minute) even though I'm working at a level where I can still maintain a breathy conversation. Occasionally, the machine will say my heart rate is something totally wacky, like 220. [more inside]
