  • Question about Medicine?

    I have been having pains in my entire body it will start at my ankles and work its way up to my shoulders. Usually when this happens I can walk around and it will subside. Well Saturday August 21st around 9:15 PM I was getting ready to go to bed when I started getting the feeling in my ankles so I thought if I got up and walked around it would go away well it didn't it got worse to the point when I laid back down I couldn't get up again for the pain was so bad.

    So I ended up having to call an ambulance and went to ER. They took blood and ran some tests but I haven't heard back yet they said it could be a pinched nerve or it could be fibromyalgia. They want me to follow up with my regular doctor but I can't afford going because of the bill from the ER and the ambulance bill.

    On August 24th, 2010 I went to the doctor to see if they can figure out what is going on. Not sure how long I will be there or what they are going to do. They took blood, took an x-ray of my back and an ultrasound of both my legs--to check for blood clots and other things also so I am just waiting on the results from that. I haven't heard back from the doctor yet as to what the results were from the tests but will update when I know more. I cannot sit for long periods of time either. Also I am type 2 diabetic and have been since 1998 and am on insulin and diet to control that.

    They have prescribed the medicine called Neurontin for me to take and I was wondering if anyone heard of this medicine and what the side effects and the like are with taking this medicine. Thank you for the information and support. .

  • Ideas for a birthday party please?

    I am having a birthday party for my son on Sunday(he turned 8 yesterday--January 7th) and I need some ideas for a couple games for the kids to play indoors.

    We live in Michigan and it is cold and snowy so I don't want them tramping in and out bringing snow in the house so we are trying to figure out what to do it will be about 12 7-8 year olds here.

    It is only from 2-4 PM so I figured the first hour a couple games and then the second hour cake and ice cream. I don't have a real big house either so.....Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

  • What would you do if you had this happen?

    What would you do if you were sitting at your computer doing something and someone you didn't know drove in your driveway and strutted up to your house like they owned the place and rang the doorbell? Would you answer the door or just ignore them? I have signs on my doors and front windows that say "No Soliciting" on them.

    The reason I ask is I had someone drive in my driveway this morning like she owned the place and came up to my front door and rang the doorbell and pounded on the door--I didn't answer it because I didn't know who she was and I was tending to my children at the time. Was I wrong in not answering the door? Just wondering what your thoughts are on this. Thanks

    My question is has anyone had/still have one and have/had any problems with them? Thanks for letting me know.
