Aren't aarp programs just grand schemes to rip off people?

Aren't aarp programs just grand schemes to rip off people?

AARP: Aarp has strong connections to insurance programs selling policies and other things which no doubt make them significant income. They are an occasionally effective lobby for some issues. The cost to 'belong' is cheap and this reflects their ability to get you on their list to sell products. Some are probably fairly priced given current market conditions but some are certainly 'rip-offs'. ...Read more

What is the difference between a seizer and a convelsion? A grand mall seizer

A: A convulsion is a type of seizure. Not all seizures are convulsions. Some seizures involve staring spells (petit mal or absence seizures). Some seizures involve certain almost purposeful activity that is the same each time. Some seizures can involve only one limb without loss of consciousness. A grand mal (also called major motor seizure) involves loss of consciousness, rigidity of the body followed by jerking motions of the whole body. This is followed by a period of unresponsiveness called the post ictal state. There is a type of convulsive seizure that happens in young children with fever. Alcohol withdrawal can also cause seizures. ...Read more

I have chest pain all day everyday because I have g.e.r.d but why does my chest hurt worse at night?

I have chest pain all day everyday because I have g.e.r.d but why does my chest hurt worse at night?

Gravity: If chest pain is primarily due to GERD, then it is common to have worse pain at night. The reason is gravity. More stomach acid can leak out of your stomach into your esophagus causing burning. Also, the valve between your esophagus & stomach is less competent (more leaky) due to change in pressure gradient on either side due to lying down position & gravity. Recommend GERD medicine before bed. ...Read more

My great grand father was 6'6'' but after him everyone is short and I am 5'7'' can I grow more? 18 now. My elder brother 5'11''

Maybe max'd already: Most people reach maximum height in their late teens. Without nutritional problems or chronic childhood illnesses, height is mostly based on genetics and parental heights. Aside from eating right, exercising, sleeping well, and being happy, there's not much a person nor his doctor can do to increase height. Check on one's growth chart at the pediatrician's office for the past 2 years' check-ups. ...Read more

Infection: At age 24 benign prostatic hypertrophy is not a consideration, so the most likely diagnosis in your age group would be either a urinary tract infection, or infection or imflammation of the prostate. Either could be caused by allowing yourself to get dehydrated concentrating the bacteria in your urine. Try drinking cranberry juice and loading up on non caffinated liquids. Otherwise go to your doc. ...Read more
