Unlikely: ...Unless you are sleeping directly under the generator. The strength of a magnetic field drops off with the square of the distance from the source. In other words, the magnetic field strength 2 feet away from the magnet is 1/4 the strength at 1 foot, and the strength at 4 feet is 1/16 the strength at 1foot, etc. The electromagnetic field would be virtually undetectable at 0.1 mile. ...Read more

Is forward head posture normal in some people? I'm struggling to correct mine with excercises (age 24)
Could be a problem: If the head is jutting forward & there was a time when it didn't or didn't as much you should be checked for possible scoliosis or other structural problems of the cervical/thoracic junction of the spinal column.

Not uncommon: After all, it's nice to have a caring thoughtful person listen to your every word. But clients usually don't know very much about their therapists personally, and so are "in love" in their imagination mainly. Also, therapists are trained & duty-bound not to reciprocate — to maintain professional boundaries. Best to discuss your feelings with your therapist, & use it to learn about yourself. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Radiofrequency: Cell phones and their towers are a source of radio frequency radiation, however at this time, there is lack of significant evidence to show that cell phones can lead to an increased risk to formation of brain tumors or any other health conditions.

I wouldn't do it: While the cell phone industry asserts there is no risk, there is evidence to suggest that there may be. This is still very controversial, but better safe than sorry is my view.

SOME THOTS: You do not explain what diagnosis wass, and not clear to me why steroid was used, so i can only speculate about specifics.
