As a still working mum with 2 school going A level students I now have hearing loss that requires a hearing aid
Looking for feedback or advice on hearing aids Receiver in ear or behind ear ones what success or not people have had the NHS hearing aid challenges vs private costly one. Are they worth it?
Lastly what hearing aids were suitable in both busy noisy working environment and home life tv phone etc . My hearing loss is between mid & moderate
I haven't seen a doctor but feel fairly sure I'm suffering from sciatica.
The pain goes from my backside right down my left leg.
If I sit or lie down for long it's really painful when I get up.
Has anyone got any tips please?
My names, Richard and I live in Stoke-on-Trent. For the past 2-years I've been trying to raise awareness of Liver Disease within our local area. I am looking to find some retired ex NHS works who many be interested in helping me raise awareness. On the 2nd October I have the British Liver Trust's "Love your Liver" campaign roadshow coming to Hanley and I need to try and get the word out.
Obesity in our area is higher than the national average at around 68.2% and 36.7% of children between 10 and 11 years. Obesity is the key risk factor for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. 26.1% of people over 16 in our area are regular alcohol drinkers, I'm looking to find anyone who misses their past nursing career and who would like to be involved in this worthwhile campaign, Please kindly let me know.
I have just been diagnosed with Morton's neuroma, which was triggered in March caused by wearing a pair of high heels to a wedding!
In Morton's neuroma, a nerve in the foot becomes irritated and thickened, which can cause severe pain.
The condition can occur in one foot or both feet. It usually affects the nerve between the third and fourth toes, but sometimes the second and third toes are affected.
Morton's neuroma can occur at any age, but most often affects middle-aged women. This may be because women tend to wear tight or high-heeled shoes that can put pressure on the feet.
It's also increasingly seen in runners, possibly because of the increased pressure on the toes that occurs when running.
Have you had it? What treatment have you had? Has it gone away?
As a 55-year-old stroke survivor and stroke hitting more people at a younger age I am surprised there isn't more on here to do with stroke, stroke survivors rely on somewhere safe to be able to chat with all kinds of people.
Recently, I heard a programme on the radio, the gist was that constant background noise pollution can damage your health and even shorten your life. It simply isn't relaxing that's for sure. I can remember being at boarding school in Kent, ages ago of course and it was just silent at night and at times during the day, not even aircraft. It is very difficult to find peace and quiet these days.
