  1. It's all part of Health Anxiety. Trust me, I know.
  2. Wait, I misread your first post. ALS doesn't come with pain. You don't have ALS. Especially since you've had symptoms for 2 years and still no weakness. If a person doesn't have weakness, they don't have ALS. That's what ALS is.
  3. There's no reason to be afraid of something as simple as a bulging disc, something like 10% of the population has them.
  4. It could be, although that also could be a bulging spinal disc compressing the nerve. Speak to a neurologist.
  5. I'm not worried at all. In fact, my worry is I won't get the booster in time, and I'll catch covid while my immunity from it has waned.
  6. There's no way that can be true. I don't believe it unless I can read it in the original study. Like I said, I've searched and I can find no such study.
  7. I find it odd that this doctor didn't suggest a different benzodiazepine. If he knew what he was doing, he'd know that you can't just suddenly stop taking them and not expect a massive increase in anxiety symptoms. You have to taper down. Wait, was "this person" even a doctor? I've googled to see if I can find the research article, and all I can find is that clonozepam is currently one of the recommended treatments for the anxiety that comes with being diagnosed with glioblastoma (or any cancer)! I'm a working scientist - I have a PhD in biochemistry - and I'd never take second-hand information about a research article from someone, people always get it wrong. I have to read it for myself.
  8. Just go tomorrow, get it over with instead of having another 6 weeks of worry.
  9. No way is that tiny amount of sun exposure going to cause skin cancer. You could take vitamin D supplements instead? I do.
  10. Kids get swollen lymph nodes all the time, if the doctor is going to look at it I wouldn't worry.
  11. Could you try a different benzodiazepine, like diazepam?
  12. Yes I hate horror movies, I avoid them like the plague.
  13. You've just reminded me that when I tried melatonin ages ago it seemed to help. I must get some more, my insomnia is crazy at the moment.
  14. Survived my lecture - and my burning sensations disappeared during it! Exhausted now because I've been awake since midnight.
  15. Not heard of this one, have you ever tried it?
