Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum,

Your grandmother requires the leg and hand movement exercises and also to turn the body on either side and stay in that position for 2 hours everyday to prevent bedsores. The recovery chances depend upon many factors, this would be explained by your doctor.

Good Luck

hello, i have suffered from sleep paralysis for 20 years, usually occuring 2 to 3 times a year. It has increased signifinetly over the past 6 months to a couple times a week. My question is should i go to a sleep clinic and try and figure out how to stop this? Everything I have read says it is not dangerous,but is the most frightening thing to experience. It feels as if I have woken up from a nap,hearing and knowing where i am, but being unable to move or speak. Or so I thought, My daughter heard me moaning and came into my room and said I was moving slightly and whispering help me which in my head, I was screaming and trying everything to get my body to move. When I do come out of it, I am dissorriented and scared, with a pounding headache.

Hi I have a lump in my left arm pit about 1inch by 1/2 inch that I get discomfort from and also suffer severe night sweats and sleep paralysis. I also found a lump where my rib cage meets which was said to be costochondritis. I suffer back pain allot these days but put it down to my job. I m 28 years old and a little worried it may be lymphoma. Iv had chest scans, blood tests etc and am awaiting a ultra sound for my arm pit.
