Hi,
At the age of 17 yrs your weak posture is due to your multiple injuries on the body.
Now leave ice hockey for ever,
Do the physiotherapy of various joints to prevent stiffness of the muscles and to keep mobility.
Do some light exercise and swimming.
This is the great tragedy in your life.
Bye and take care.

I am a 49 year old female, 5 5 weighing 190 lbs, 30 of which I have gained in less than a year. I have had leukocytosis (12 to 17) for at least 8 years. I have postural tachycardia. My supine heart rate is usually high 80 s to mid 90 s. My standing heart rate is often 125 to 140. I often have PVCs and PACs. I have other orthostatic symptoms but they are relatively mild except for the fatigue. I am trying to do yoga. I walk 2 miles four days a week and I am trying to lose the extra weight. My doctor wants to put me on a beta blocker. Should I try to find the cause of my symptoms or just take the medicine and not worry about it? Thanks.

Hi. My 17 year old son was diagnosed with MS. He woke up one morning with Bells Palsy like facial paralysis....and his eye was not abducting properly with nystagmus on each side. An MRI showed lesions on his brain and the lumbar puncture revealed 2 oglioclonal bands. He is now back to his normal self and has no other symptoms. I am hesitant to put him on any DMD at this point because we are not 100% convinced it is really MS. Any thoughts?

Hello, I am scheduled for surgery to have a partial pariodectomy for a pleomorphic adenoma. I am worried about facial nerve paralysis following this and would like to know would it be possible to use a EMS device which exercises the facial muscles following this surgery to help the facial nerve get back to normal?

I have been having pain, numbness, and tingling in my R. pinky and ring finger for the past 2-3 months now. I was hoping it would subside sooner. (Last June I was diagnosed with a radial nerve palsy with almost complete arm paralysis - some of my symptoms had the ER doctors test me to rule out mild stoke (=negative). The radial nerve palsy had a very sudden onset (I woke up with it), and it resolved within about 2-3 weeks.) This now feels different. The pain and tingling are now constant. In addition, today I noticed a small but very painful lump beneath the R. ring finger; the pain in this area is quite intense and very sharp.

I have type 2 neurofibromatosis, I have had surgery to remove most of the tumors, now I have 3 large fibromas left in my jaw/cheek. I thought cyberknife would be an effective treatment but my Dr said the tumors were too close to the surface, and they cant be removed surgically because the risk of facial paralysis is very high. my question is, would brachytherapy be a good option for my case?
