  • "Sciatica is a term often used to describe any low back and leg pain, but it more specifically applies to lumbosacral radiculopathy due to the impingement of nerve roots as they emerge from the spinal canal. Up to half of all cases of spinal pain may be neuropathic in origin, meaning they are caused by nerve compression, inflammation, and/or injury. A pair of recent studies examined treatments for sciatica and found that very few are helpful and they confer only modest and temporarily relief."

  • "With Britain’s obesity levels shooting up, and greater understanding of just how bad for us sugar can be, the hunt is on for alternatives. But there’s a problem. Many sugar substitutes are synthetics that are no better for us than real sugar. What’s more, some of these synthetics – aspartame and acesulfame-K to name just two – have been linked to cancer. "

  • "The findings show that patients with chronic fatigue syndrome have decreased activation of an area of the brain known as the basal ganglia in response to reward. Additionally, the extent of this lowered activation was associated with each patient's measured level of fatigue. The basal ganglia are at the base of the brain and are associated with a variety of functions, including motor activity and motivation. Diseases affecting basal ganglia are often associated with fatigue. These results shed more light on this mysterious condition, information that researchers hope may eventually lead to better treatments for chronic fatigue syndrome."

  • "The people of this country have to decide, and soon, whether they want Cameron’s Reich, or a democratic country, probably a republic, which looks after its own citizens, all of whom, regardless of wealth or privilege, will have the same access to healthcare and justice, and those who need it have the support of the more fortunate members of society.

    It really is that stark a choice. Doing nothing is no longer an option."

  • "ow, when a claimant is refused ESA the record of the assessment (on form ESA85) is always included in a claimant's DLA appeal papers because the Department for Work & Pensions like to point to it and use it as further evidence to back up their case. When the assessment is favourable to the claimant they don't put it in, which is equivalent to the prosecution in a criminal case failing to divulge relevant information to the defence."

  • "Do you know what that does to you? Do you know how much strength of character it takes to face 6 doctors, all stood around your bed and tell them you think they're wrong? To refuse a course of treatment you know is irrelevant? To do it for weeks, months, even years, until you find a saviour? A good doc after all the bad docs?

  • ""Britain now has the world’s most over-indebted banking system, according to new figures from the International Monetary Fund". The Fund’s Global Financial Stability Report has revealed that the total gross debt of Britain’s banks is equivalent to 742% of the UK’s total economic output – equivalent to around £11 trillion. It means Britain has overtaken Ireland, whose banking system’s debt is equivalent to 691% of GDP""

The Roomba 760 can also vacuum those hard to reach places like under sofas and beds — places which are usually neglected. Plus, with its HEPA filters and scheduling functions, it will keep pet hair and dust from accumulating by vacuuming on a daily basis — something that you’d be hard-pressed to do yourself."

Other studies on the same outbreak also show a strong link between the acute Giardia infection and both chronic fatigue and IBS."

  • Just when I thought the government policy of cutting benefits (aka "reform") had reached its zenith of bizarre, unrealistic cruelty, along comes another cunning plan so ill considered it defies belief. The latest wheeze being floated is the suggestion that nobody under the age of 25 should be entitled to housing benefit.

  • "A normal, healthy person’s body takes a mildly stressful situation and processes it in a normal way. But people with ME/CFS do not have the capability of handling even the smallest amounts of stress. Part of the problem with this disease is that even the smallest amounts of stress can send us to our beds for weeks at a time. If we have to deal with stressful situations for weeks, months at a time, our bodies will completely shut down and cannot recover quickly."

  • "Sadly many I have talked to have expressed the frustration of this sentiment. So let me get right to the point. When a person has a disabling illness they have to damn near live in a bubble to manage you bet your ass we pick and choose what to do with our "well" moments. We just don't have that many of them! Did it ever occur to the offended persons that you like Sally a whole lot more, and had an astronomically better time at her party than you would have had at theirs? Are they aware you did as close to nothing as possible for a week before and after to even make it to your friend's house out of town? Have they ever stopped to think you are still a person with hopes and dreams and desires even though you got sick? The basic tenants of your personality are being squashed by awful pain, but have never gone away? And you have as much of a right to snippets of happiness in your life as they have in theirs? "
