  1. Try to remember ALS is an extremely rare disease with only 5,000 new cases each year. Cancer and heart disease total over a million, so there is really no comparison. I remember once asking my doctor about a carcinoid tumor and he said I have a better chance of getting struck by lightning. 

  2. I have had Tinnutis 24 hours a day seven days a week for some time. I told my ENT and internal medicine physicians about it and they said it is pretty common and that they have it too and to live with it and I have done so. My ringing, whistling and buzzing is primarily in my left ear.

  3. MY stools have had a reddish hue if I ate something red and have had a greenish hue sometimes if I ate something green. Many years ago when I was 25, I went to the bathroom and when I wiped, the whole tissue was covered with red blood and the toilet bowl water was all red. I had an immediate meltdown and had myself dead and buried. It turned out to be just a very large hemorrhoid. 

  4. My wife got her first shot with no ill effects. My friends wife got her second shot and she got fever and chills for a day and then she was fine. I have signed up, but have not been able to get my shot yet.
