What's your problem?

I think most of us have some medical problem or another.

Mine is newly diagnosed Polymyalgia Rheumatica - also I get ocassional attacks of vertigo and seem to suffer chronic catarrh.

Tony has Arthritis & mild/moderate Alzheimers - oh & his eyes water a lot.

Do you mind talking about your's?

Re: What's your problem?

Sorry to hear of your health issues, Carol. Your husband too. Alzheimer's is awful.

My one recurrent complaint is to do with my ears; wax problems, Tinnitus. I had some coughing issues earlier this year too but I put that down to dusty work conditions.
I have slight knee meniscus/arthritis but that is kept at bay by keeping active.
Otherwise I'm still fit and healthy.

No Susan. I finally got a regular appointment arranged with the specialist earlier this year. I'll be sent a letter every six months.
Due to the nature of my narrow ear canals I am prone to infection so I can't use drops or anything other than suction to sort them out now.
Thanks for the idea though

Surprised to hear you suggest this Susan. These are well known to be a con. Candling does absolutely nothing, how could it?!

Another excellent Video here which shows the sheer danger and damage people are doing to their ears by having this quackery treatment. They are lining their ears with candle residue which will surely impair their hearing.

Re: What's your problem?

Realist , well I'm shocked , I've had the treatment a few times and the friend who did it taught me to do her ears . So we treat each other twice a year . So here's me thinking I've got really clean ears . Wait till I tell my friend .

Really surprised at this .

Easy to get fooled by such things esp when people appear totally sincere.

My MIL had tis done whilst on holiday abroad. Don't know how many times. However today she is really hard of hearing.
