  1. Very true. I'm on 50 mg of Levothyroxine which can cause tremors. FOR THE HECK OF IT: When I got my COVID booster in Oct., the pharmacist hit a nerve and the pain went down my arm and into my hand. My shaking hand started within a day or so.
  2. Have you had a PSA blood test done?
  3. Do you take aspirin and/ or bike, run, exercise strenuously? 98% of people over 65 will show 'blood' in a random urine test. Sometimes they have pink urine and other times have zero symptoms. I had pink urine twice at around 68 and was taking daily aspirin and only notice the pink after 3 hours at the gym. MARCH (think soldiers) hematura is when small amount of blood is found in the urine of bikers, runners, military, etc. Are you a hairdresser? Do you smoke? If the answers are 'no', your chance of bladder cancer is around zero.
  4. I think that's what I have and it's worse when anxiety hits. It also runs in families. If one parent has/ had it, 50% chance you'll shake. I remember my great grandmother held one hand up against her tummy with her good hand and her head had a gentle nod. My grandmother had a bad stroke in her late 60's and her arm was useless, so no idea about her. My 90 year old mother has 2 fingers on her best hand 'jump' but she has such twisted arthritis that she can't move her other hand. I haven't asked my 95 year old Daddy. He lost half his hand in a motorcycle accident as a young man when a car side swiped him and ran over him left hand. I do worry about Parkinson's because I only have Medicare and couldn't buy medication.
  5. We made sandwiches for supper. I took a small bite of the corner and noticed the Great Value Roast Turkey slipping out the side felt slimy. I looked and it had some bright pink spots dime to quarter sized in the middle. The sale by date is May 27th but this pouch had already been opened a few days ago. Is pink mold on food (guessing that's what it was) dangerous/ deadly? I threw it out right away and was too scared to eat anything else!
  6. My left hand shakes every day. Some times it's major movement and other times I can feel more than I see. I think it's essential tremor because it runs in my mother, grandmother and great grandmother. The thing that blows my mind is I can relax my shoulder and look at my hand and tell it to stop! I also noticed if I go to a shop and get to looking at things like pretty beads for my hobby, I don't think it shakes AT ALL. I did read psychogenic tremors (anxiety if you will) can exaggerate essential tremors. I'm almost 72 so starting to have things like hbp.
  7. I started treatment for intertrigo even tho some satellite spots were pretty far away from skin folds and it faded in 10 hours. Still using meds (I mix the RX steroid with generic Clotrimazole) even tho I 'see' nothing. I get intertrigo often in my panty line area. Mammo / ultrasound were both unchanged and good news. My doctor has her radiologist team print out a letter before she comes in to see me. No waiting.
  8. One spot has returned but only the size of a fingertip. I'm shaking all over from fear. I keep checking it ..........
  9. I think this was a hive from friction or heat. I used some RX steroid cream and it cleared up before bed. I'm still going for my mammo and ultrasound on Monday since it's been 2 years. It's done in the office and read immediately so I get a printed out report right then.
  10. I found a dark pink spot on the underside of my breast this morning. Right above it is some pink spots that look different and small like a pencil eraser size. I'm terrified it's inflammatory breast cancer. I'm not in the usual age range and have no heat, heaviness, nipple changes, puckered skin but I'm shaking all over with fear. I skipped my mammograms so it's been 2 years 3 months. I called and the breast care specialist group got me in on Monday because of the spot. I usually have a 6 month wait. Diane
  11. Our son got me the oil for back spasms and it seems to be working. It's a low dose/ mild and I've been using it for 3 weeks. Not sure how they differ for different needs.
  12. No side effects from Losartan and my cough is gone!
