    As a man in his late seventies I have sleep interruption issues, including length of sleep (only 4-6hrs.) as well as quality of that sleep. Having been apprised of the dangers of OTC as well as Rx meds increasing risk of dementia, I am researching natural supplement alternatives such as low dose, sublingual Melatonin, Valerian and Chamomile tea.

  • Have you ever had a swollen lymph node in the neck area caused by medication you are taking?
    I have a swollen lymph node which appeared in the neck area under my left ear about three weeks ago...it grew quickly (overnight) and then it came down significantly after I took antibiotics. It is almost gone, but I can still feel a very, very small lump (it still keeps going down every day). Went to see the ENT two days ago and all turned out good (no cancer anywhere...tonsils, vocal cords, throat, tongue, etc.). But they want to do an excision biopsy to remove the lymph node and check it for cancer, etc? Does this make sense?

  • Cfs/fibro, migraine
    A strange thing happened when I started taking the Chantix for my smoking cessation...
    MY MIGRAINES AND TENSION HEADACHES WENT AWAY!!!
    As horrible as they were, and as bad as I have prayed for them to go away, I did not even notice that I didn't have the excruciating headaches anymore!!
    I stopped taking the chantix and the headaches gradually came back but it took me awhile to make this correlation. Once I did, I started taking the chantix again. it started working immediately... taking the migraines and neck pain away again! Now, I can take 1/2 of a pill every other day and that seems to keep the migraines away! There are side effects and I don't know if it would work for everyone but it sure worked for me!

  • From this study (5 days ago):

  • I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and chronic pain syndrone, as well as panic and anxiety syndrone, and now restless leg syndrone. I am concerned that the tremor might be Parkinson's Disease and I need to know how to find out the answer. I LOVE the cymbalta for pain, stiffness and especially the panic and anxiety but I do want to be certain that I don't have Parkinson's.
