I've been diagnosed with cubicle tunnel in left arm - where do I find brace restraint?

I've been diagnosed with cubicle tunnel in left arm - where do I find brace restraint?

Cubital tunnel: Cubital tunnel syndrome occurs when the ulnar nerve ( i.e. Funny bone) gets compressed in a groove behind the elbow. Symptoms tend to be worse at night, when the elbow naturally tends flex. A cheap and easy brace to use at nighttime is a simple elbow pad with the pad flipped into the front of the elbow. There, it prevents flexion of the elbow. Good luck! ...Read more

I thought ALS typically occurs in people in their 50s and 60s? Put Pete Frates(ice bucket challenge) was in his 20s and Lou Gehrig was in his 30s

I thought ALS typically occurs in people in their 50s and 60s? Put Pete Frates(ice bucket challenge) was in his 20s and Lou Gehrig was in his 30s

Couple comments: Although ALS is indeed a disease of older patients, there are other causes of early onset motor neuron disease, such as hereditary Kugelberg-Whelander, and the true cause of Lou Gehrig's demise remains puzzling as no autopsy was ever done. Some suggest ALS was erroneous diagnosis, and Chronic Post-traumatic Encephalopathy may have been a more correct diagnosis. ...Read more

When I was in kidergarden I got tested by the school districts physical therpist diag me with very mild cerbaly palsy
he conf milld CP ?

Cerebral palsy (CP): The diagnosis of CP is a complex process that requires a full history, neurological examination, and possibly imaging. The earlier CP is diagnosed correctly, the better the opportunities are to provide the child with physical and educational help. CP can be confused with other problems. See a neurologist for evaluation. http://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/cerebral_palsy/cerebral_palsy.htm ...Read more

How to avoid/delay post-polio syndrome in a 44 yr old w/polio of right leg (shorter than left by 0.25inch) no crutches, wheel chair. Quad strengt 3/5.

How to avoid/delay post-polio syndrome in a 44 yr old w/polio of right leg (shorter than left by 0.25inch) no crutches, wheel chair. Quad strengt 3/5.

Do not worry: Post-polio syndrome has received far too much publicity, as the true syndrome is really quite rare, and most so-called cases wind up being arthritis, muscular problems of an alternative nature, or merely aging in presence of a prior problem which makes the process a bit tougher. Instead, focus on a healthy lifestyle, get exercise, and focus on positive aspects of life. ...Read more

My granddaughter has chicken pox's , my husband had shingles but not chicken pox's , can he catch them too?

I had roundworm as kid, was it because I went barefoot, played in uncovered sandbox, or kissed my mouser cat?

I had roundworm as kid, was it because I went barefoot, played in uncovered sandbox, or kissed my mouser cat?

No: You get hookworms (not roundworms) from going barefoot in a sandbox or elsewhere that's infested. You'd don't get worms from your cat (they're species specific). You get round worms from eating contaminated food. Kids put their hands in their mouth and don't always wash their hands before eating so they're especially susceptible. ...Read more

From canada my bf used 2 kleenez not bare hands to pick up dead baby bird and dispose.Than carried in groceries without washing hands. Contamination?

Germs are everywher: Germs are everywhere, I would not expect that the two of you were going to eat off of those grocery bags. With food preparation and refrigeration your bacterial burden is usually reduced significantly. I wouldn't be any more concerned about this ,that if you went outside and played in the yard and came in and ate dinner without washing your hands. The normal human body has a great immune system. ...Read more
