    I can recommend, horsechestnut gel. Read the instructions and with regular use your symptoms should ease consideraly. Also, I suggest you see a Homeopathic Practitioner who can prescribe loads of herbal remedies for your condition and ALL without side-effects. Most people don't agree with herbal medicine which, incidentally, has been around for thousands of years, but you have so much pain and discomfort now what have you got to lose?????????

    My teeth have become discoloured because I have been on and off (more on than off) antibiotics for more than four months. Will they go back to normal? I don't have much to smile about due to being ill for this long but this is adding insult to injury

    I had two very sore, what can only be described as cuts on either side of my inner labia, they took about a month to heal completley, I do shave but did not notice the 'injury' until a few days later, therefore I don't think I cut myself. The wounds wept and were really painful! They have gone now, but, I have 'scars'. Were they cuts?

    Hi I'm Kate, 17 and u currently noticed a small bump under Neath my skin on my vagina lip and I was worried what it could be....I have researched it and it's all said cancer :/ I didn't want it to scare me so I'm worried what I should do

    I am a 15 year old female and back in feburary i was sent to my GP by the receptionist at my school as i was complaining of numbness in my neck, cheeck, lips, shoulder, back, arm, leg and foot which was all in the left side of my body which was ocurring every ten minutes or so. The staff at my school and my family thought i was having a STROKE. My GP thought i had CEREBRAL PALSY and after going to two diffrent hospitals the doctors and nurses couldnt dermine what it was. I had either an MRI scan or a CT scan on my brain to see if there was a tummer causing the numbness and i was told nothing had shown up on the results but my brain. The doctors could only tell me that it could have been something that may happen again or something which i will never experience again. It hasnt happened since but i do get a little sensation in my back AGAIN ON THE LEFT SIDE Which feels a little bit numb but the sensation goes away. I just wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this before and is it NORMAl at all?, as it baffles me everyday to think that my body satrted to Malfunction.

    I am very sorry to hear about your husbands injury. It is great to see though, you have sort a Doc for some advice on this situation. You can either sort another opinion to see if the head injury is the cause, (physical cause)? Or has his confidence, self esteem been effected (physiological). Has his moods changed since accident, (depression,) another cause. U want to know the cause, before the band-aid solutions.. If none of the above, perhaps spice up your love life,1. build the excitement thru out the day, anticipate,2. take Viagra and 3. turn up the foreplay and by the time his ready, you hopefully will be also. Change things around, is basically the message here, utilize visual aids, etc. Think outside the square or pattern routine, Being close to someone is a playtime for adults, so be playful in what it takes for you both,it is good for mind and spirit. Take Care Martin.

    I'm a 22 year old male, within the past 2 days ice noticed my sperm is a brownish watery sperm, just recently gotten back into the game after a long time without having sex, could it just be blood from an injury? Or do you think I should find someone doctor

    Sounds Like early stage Peyronies disease, as what you descibe is exactly what I've been going through over the last 15 months. I was diagnosed by the specialist at my Local hospital 6 months ago. I'm 48 and was experiencing pain when errect....thought at first it was due to over active sex and do recall a point during where I did bend the shaft with my partner being on top. However the pain came and came every time I was errect. I thouhgt it best to visit my GP who reffered me to the local Hospital Urolgy Dept. Following examination I was then diagnosed. Now 12 months on the pain is less severe, but I now have a noticable bend and I also have an indent just like you describe. The indent is called 'waisting' so I'm told. I'm still struggling to date to accept the deformation, but am slowly coming round to accepting the problem. In my case to date having sex is still ok, arousal is still as quick as was before and with an understanding partner penetration is quite possible, sensation and ejaculation are exactly as normal. I hope this frank truth about my situation is helpful to you, and that your symtoms subside, at first I thought I was alone out there, apparently not.

    I have a jaw tremor from a brain injury for 20 years. My tremor is very annoying. The thing I have found most helpful is a relaxation tape. I listen to the tape for 15 or 20 minutes and it slow the tremor down a bit for the next few hours. I keep a copy of the relaxation tape with me wherever I go. If I have to I go to my car and listen to it I take the time I need. You can get a relaxation tape in the new age music department in a music store on look on line. The ones with mostly words is what works best for me. It takes about two weeks for your body to learn the relaxation message. This was recommended to me by a phycologist that I saw after my brain virus. For the last six years I've been get a botox shot in my jaw which helps. Hope this information is helpful

    There are many different reasons why people bed wet, but it is often to do with brain training. We are using a bed mat alarm with our daughter, which is teaching her brain to wake up when she starts wetting. Over time her brain will pick up that it needs to wake up BEFORE she wets and eventually the brain reduces the amount of urine so that her sleep is no longer disturbed. Desmotabs are a synthetic hormone that help to reduce the amount of urine, treating a symptom rather then curing. However for some people, this hormone is not produced and can work. Good luck, and don't give up!

    Forgot to add just in my cat scan they also noticed that the growth of my brain was ahead for my age, that wwas just another large hint into my diagnosis.

    I also have a brain avm about 5cm in size i took a brain hemorrhage in feb this year, my avm is right in the middle of my brain and also goes up to the top of the right hand side of my brain the doctors have told me because of the size and location of my avm that it would be impossible for them to perform surgery on me, there was also the option of glueing the malfirmation but again because of the size it would also be impossible so then i was referref for stereotatic radio surgery but was told again because of the size and location that it was to risky as they would have to give me a strong dose of radiotherapy to my whole brain so really i am left with no options to remove it, i dont mind the avm being there i can live with it but since i had the bleed in feb i have been suffering with severe pains in my head which means i am in and out of hospital, my doctors put me on amitriptyline to see if it helps with the pain but it doesnt seem to make any difference, all i want is for the paine but nothing seems to be working any suggestions welcome.

    my boyfriend has some lumpy, tubes like hanging from his left sac. It almost lands in the center of the two. He sustained a very serious injury about 8 years ago. (of course the doctors said it is nothing). I have done some research, but i still have a mayor question. Can an injury separate the testi from the tubes that carry the sperm?

    I started wetting the bed every night following a brain heamorraghe and brain surgery. Tests revealled my bladder was working properley but that my brain doesn't seem to have contact with it. As a consequence i never know if i need to go. Daytime is much easier to manage but night time took a lot longer to deal with but i haven;t had a wet night for over a year. I guess what i'm saying is find out what works for you and never give up hope. xx

    Hi, I'm also in Sydney and am "under suspicion" for Behçet's. Weekly visits to GP, blood tests ok, abnormal MRI on brain, neck injury due to whiplash, chronic fatigue, constant ulcers, fever and chills, IBS, more stuff but eyes ok.....seen several specialists. Am seeing an Assoc. Prof at Concord Hospital, who is great but worried he won't diagnose me but another appointment next week as flare ups are constant now and with young kids, life is difficult. Just wondering who you are seeing....all the best, I'm 45 years young!

    My sons 3 sons all have nf1 and they had regular checks without those check ups they would not have found that my youngest with the decease has renal stenosis, epilepsy , high blood pressure and he also has the internal tumors in his brain, one of the brain tumors was removed in 2008 when he was just 15as it grew and he nearly died. Now this year 2014. Already have found out yet another one in his brain has also stated to grow it scares me to think that we have to go threw surgery again .

    its weird because i always used feel and think i had more of a male brain. But it turened out that i have a female brain and honestly science is extraordinary :)

    If men and women can have either a systemising brain or an empathising brain then why is a systemising described as male and an empathising brain described as female? Shouldn't they just be described as systemising and empathising brains without a gender attached?

    Just said exactly the same thing to my partner! Why do we define these characteristics are male or female? Anyway, I am 11/20, so as I predicted before doing it, right where I expected to be!

    Sometimes I get really tired and have to lie down. Within minutes of doing this, I hear a loud noise in my head, and then after I can't see the left half of myself, even though I know where it is. I can't see my arm or leg, and the noise in my head goes quieter. I also don't know where I am. Sometimes it lasts a few minutes, other times it seems to go on for ages. It has happened now, 5 times over the last 2 1/2 yrs. What could it be? I had a mild traumatic brain injury 2yrs 9mths ago - it started about 3 months after that, firstly with very loud noises in my head, like loud bangs or the sound of someone breaking into my house.

    they wont run a brain scan - there was limited evidence that schizphrenia causes shrinkage of the brain but nothing was ever confirmed because they couldnt work out if the fact that the brain was smaller was BECAUSE of the schizophrenia or the cause of it. its since been abandoned as a diagnostic tool. they'll talk to you about your symptoms and the triggers for them. there are lots of mental health conditions that have psychosis as part of them and doctors dont just say 'you're crazy' i hallucinate fairly constantly and im bipolar. please go and see someone and try and take a friend or loved one who has witnessed your symptoms. it makes it a lot easier for the doctor to tell what is going on if you have someone independent to back you up.

    I have Cervical Dystonia, I received Botox injections fot 5 years until they ceased to work. In 2006 I had Deep Brain Stimulation electrodes planted into my brain connected to a neurostimulator (pacemaker for the brain) it bypasses the incorrect message sent to your muscles and corrects it. It's by no means a cure but it's an amazing surgery that has given me my life back. Thankyou for bringing awareness to this condition, stress will make it worse, & hypnotherepy may help in the short term but I was suprised it was said to be psycological!! I felt that to be far from the truth & I think a lot of people with the condition would agree!! The twisting & spasms are caused by a faulty signal from your brain and you have no control over them. I would love you to show more on DBS which is used also for Parkinsons, pain & severe cases of tourettes. Well done on the awareness!

    Comments for the person who put the questionnaire together: 1 There's a typo in the list of questions: 'I enjoy reading novels more /then\ THAN non-fiction.' 2 There seems to be something missing on the form, as it ends thus: 'Hands are a further marker for brain organisation. Combining the questionnaire results together with the following finger pattern result may give you a clearer picture of your brain organisation.' Or has it just got out of order? PS I have a moderately female brain (14, with both index fingers longer), and am a retired midwife and the founder of GASP - Grammar And Spelling Pedants.

    I have had no sense of smell or taste for the last 8 or 9 years (anosmia). It's so frustrating. I've had a brain scan and nothing was found (the brain was found!). Doctor knows very little about it. Any 'help groups' out there or research teams?

    Hormones effect everyone's brain differently. Your hornones can be fine statistically and still impact you in a negative way. The doctors don't know your complete biological makeup and therefore you can't rely on solely on hormone level testing to determine brain related menstrual problems.....you can however speak with a psychiatrist and explain your symptoms and show them any journals/logs you've been keeping.....I actually just read an article (I wish I could remember where) basically saying hormone level tests don't mean nothing when it comes to PMMD because different people react differently to different hormones in your brain....

    It depends on what part and the area of the brain damaged, as some of us with Cerebral Palsy can struggle with our learning process. I am good with numbers but I've always had great difficulty with my spelling, moreso when I'm tired or stressed.. Often our brain processes information differently to our able-bodied peers, as that's why most of us walk differently if we can walk at all.. It's not our legs that are damaged but the part of our brain that makes our legs walk.. I hope this has helped to answer your question Lisa.. Perhaps invest in a calculator to help you with your numbers, just as I use a dictionary a lot..

    I'm not sure where you read that 5 orgasms can cause brain damage, but that's completely absurd! I'd be very interested in seeing that source. The only results is see on google or google scholar are porn videos, which aren't very good sources. Orgasms don't cause brain damage. There's a yearly event in San Fransisco called "Masturbate-A-Thon," and one woman had 49 orgasms there once. There's also a disorder called Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome that causes people to involuntarily have over a hundred orgasms a day. No brain damage has been reported from any of these instances as far as I'm aware, so I think 5 orgasms (and considerably more) should be perfectly safe.

    my son is now 19 and from an early age i knew there was something just not quite right and he struggled in main stream school and was ear marked as a naughty boy, years on from this i have fought with education systems and other organisations they came to the conclusion he had dyslexia and had the brain of a 13 year old at 6 year old and school was not stimulating his brain. he has now done a diploma and works and has as normal of a life as possible keep questioning and dont give up if you think your child has adhd or any other hyper active condition, i would like to add that when i gave birth it was a very fast birth half an hour and i think this can have a affect on these hyper active conditions later on in life as the brain has to adjust to being out of the womb.
