My husband has been suffering with a pain in his right arm for a few months now. He saw the doctor and he diagnosed it as tennis elbow, he did do a lot of fence painting in the summer, the doc has suggested a cortisone injection in the elbow, just wondering if anyone has had one and are they of any benefit as I've read some horror stories where the pain has been twice as bad afterwards?

I'm slim person. In order to gain weight, I'm focusing to various type of diet. In my food, I've used maximum amount of tomato because it's taste make my meal special and I love it. However, I've heard that tomato is mainly used to lose weight. So, I'm worried regarding the usage of tomato. Really it doesn't let to gain weight ? Is it beneficial to avoid tomato for gaining weight ?

About a week ago, I was at home at the computer (I believe I was listening to music at the time), and I noticed that the hearing in my left ear had been significantly diminished (but not completely gone). About a minute (perhaps even less than a minute) later, it returned completely to normal, and so I assumed that it was just ear wax or something, and everything was fine now. However, a few seconds to a minute later, it went back to being diminished again. I can't remember for certain if I felt anything physically when all of this happened, but there may have been something that I felt in my ear - which led me to believe it was probably just ear wax.

I have researched on-line for possible solutions to this kind of problem, and I have tried every possibility that I could - peroxide, warm olive oil, blowing as hard as I can with my nose and mouth shut, blowing as hard as I can with my nose and mouth and other (good) ear shut, nasal decongestant (which successfully clears up my nose, but doesn't have any effect on the ear), hot steam bath, Similasan Ear Relief drops that are supposed to clear up water in the ears, jumping up and down with my bad ear tilted toward the ground, jogging, and of course trying to dig out ear wax with the ear wax curette that I have. Unfortunately, nothing has worked, and my hearing has been about the same ever since a week ago when it went out (diminished) for the second time.
I have been able to remove a lot of ear wax with the curette, and sometimes it seems to make it a little better, but it never restores my hearing to normal. Sometimes I feel like I am right at the spot where it is clogged up (if indeed clogged ear wax is the problem), because the curette seems to be hitting a spot that's clogged with ear wax (judging from what it feels and sounds like), but then when I dig out a bunch of ear wax at that spot, my hearing is still the same or perhaps only slightly better. Perhaps I am actually pushing the ear wax further inside, which was mentioned as a possible negative effect of trying to remove the ear wax yourself. Also, I am wary of not poking too hard or too deep, as that was also a warning given at the sites I visited in my research.
Swallowing never seems to do anything, but it's interesting that when I have a strong belch, I can feel pressure inside that left (bad) ear, and it really feels like it's about to burst out and expel whatever is stuck (if it's the case that something is stuck), but it never does. Maybe whatever is stuck in there [ear wax, presumably] is just in so tight that nothing seems to be able to remove it. However, the odd circumstance that occurred when the problem first originated - which is the fact that it got better right after getting clogged up, and then got clogged up again - would seem to suggest that there may be another reason for this happening, other than plugged-up ear wax.
Recently I decided to remove nail polish from my toes that I've had on for a few months. When I removed this nail polish all the nails were completely normal, except my big toe on my left foot had a black or dark brown "patch" on it.

Go to the URL above if the picture doesn't work to see my toe.
If anyone could help answer what this is, it would mean the world. I'm really worried and I'm not sure what it is...if it is cancer, a bruise or a fungal infection, etc.....there are so many possibilities and I'd really love an answer! It doesn't hurt if I press on it, but I am still worried.
BTW I did go on a camp where I hiked for hours and hours and my toes (not just my big toe) hurt when I pressed on them for a couple days after but it went away quickly - this was a few months ago. I'm not sure if this has anything to do with what has happened but yeah...
So - if anyone could give me a name of what I have and how I can treat it, it would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks again!
Has anyone else had problems with cystitis/bladder infections when on Warfarin? This is a problem I have never ever experienced previously but for the last few days I seem to have had all the classic symptoms and am wondering if it could be Warfarin-related? I have been taking Warfarin for approx 7 months after a P/E and will be on it for life. My INR is very unstable, (currently 3.4....should be 2.5). A week ago I finished a one week course of antibiotics to try to clear up a chesty cough, (didn't).

A week ago I went to the restroom and was in the process of a BM and got the worst headache starting from my neck to the top of my head. I went straight to ER and cat scan was performed and showed nothing. 3 days later I was having stomach pain went to the restroom didn't make it to have the BM and got the same headache went straight to ER given meds and home. Yesterday morning stomach started hurting went to restroom sat down to have BM and same headache went straight back to ER this time they gave another cat scan and it came back normal and they decided to do a spinal tap all four samples had blood which isn't supposed to. They shipped me to a bigger hospital for a different cat scan nothing showed up some an mri nothing showed up. They discharged me. I am now to the point where I an afraid to have a BM. The doctors never looked at my rectum or my stomach. Please someone tell me I'm not alone and what I can do to prevent these headaches from coming back. I can't hold these bm forever.

The doctor said the lung tissue is possible (mild) pneumonia. I'm less concerned about that, and I'm being treated with antibiotics. However, I have no idea what "degenerative change is present in the thoracic spine" means. He said nothing about that, but he's an allergy/asthma specialist, so it's not really his field...

Here's what the whole thing says:
"Minimal linear infiltrate is present in the left base. The lungs are otherwise clear. The cardiomediastinal silhouette is normal size and configuration. No pneumothorax or pleural effusion is identified. The pulmonary vascularity is normal. Minimal degenerative change is present in the thoracic spine."
I'm 31 weeks and just started getting stretch marks, any good remedies or something I should use?

This is often called emotional blackmail to A person who has been abusive to you draws in another person who totally sides with them and heaps even more abuse on you They often go to family members or friends or they get attorneys to heap even more abuse on you This happened to me and I did see some of it coming bc I happened upon a book about emotional blackmail But I totally underestimated how abusive other people they went to could be And I was in a very vulnerable situation post accident I want to warn others about this bc it makes things even worse and it puts you in a lot more danger It is like mobbing or a gang where they increase the abuse using their brother or whoever or hire an attorney and lie to the attorney or they may call other authorities on you or even try to claim something criminal Just consider this when you find yourself in an abusive relationship.
