Hope so HB I am sure you will feel better soon after your injection keep your chin up.
Hang on in there, Hazel. Let us know how your treatment went.

Thanks hug Passed out in the shopping centre today. Thankfully there were a pair of very helpful policemen going passed and my mum was in the nearby supermarket. So now feeling flat and tired yawn

I think you are going to have a quiet time before you go to hospital HB. I know it will be boring and you want to be independent but it seems your fainting spells are more frequent. Stay at home just to be on the safe side.

Does 'man flu' really exist?

Dr Adler added: 'We haven't found any evidence of "man flu" yet.'

'We know that women react differently to infection. They are more sensitive to their health. Men bluster around a bit,' claimed Oxford. 'So there are differences in how men and women perceive illness.

'Men think they are going to die when they are unwell, so they go to bed and expect women to look after them.'

Actually I think this is largely a myth. I know guys who keep going and rarely are ill enough to warrant a fuss, or rest up quietly if they are, and women who have to let everyone know all about it when they're even slightly under the weather.

I can honestly say that I have come across all types you've mentioned.

I have noticed that there are some sickly kids in NZ - ear infections are common place. confused I only ever remember one of my kids having an ear infection.

  I had an bad ear infection many years ago as a child and the treatment was a penicillin jag in the bum.  Very painful - not the jag itself but the after effects. Couldn't sit down for a day. But it probably saved my hearing.

Well that is after a course of antibiotics. Very Happy People forget/are unaware that they should take some probiotics when on antibiotics - we have good bacteria in our system that antibiotics kill and we need to replace this.

  Thats one good thing about injections. Oral antibiotics play hell with the gut - I hate those too!

I had that too when I was a child - six jabs in total, three in each side ... could hardly sit down by the time they'd finished!  I had a bad abscess though which left me with a damaged eardrum and so I'm partly deaf in that ear as well as a having a constant feeling of dullness and a funny sort of whistling sound (luckily both slight).  However flying is agony because the eardrum is scarred and therefore can't adjust to changes in pressure.  Colds too get it going because the Eustachian tube gets blocked.

Unfortunately I had a lousy GP and it was only later that I discovered via a specialist that something could have been done about this, but that would have had to have been within six months. Frown  No doubt though things have moved on since then, but I've long learnt to live with it, although the deafness can be a bit frustrating at times.

I'm going to start calling you the Probiotics Lady, Bev, since you must surely be their global ambassador! Very Happy

Mr A was taken into hospital with epileptic type seizures and complete loss of short term memory on 21st December.  Originally they thought it was encephalitis possibly caused by a brain or some other tumour.  Thankfully they have now decided that it is adult onset epilepsy - not great but infinitely preferable to the alternative.  They are slowly managing to control the seizures and his memory is gradually returning.  I'm hoping we might get home by next weekend - in time for the second week of the Aussie Open.  I can't wait - living in a hotel for weeks on end is not much fun and I'm missing my dogs!!

I wondered why you hadn't been around recently, Alis, and I'm sincerely sorry to hear the reason why, even although the diagnosis could have been much worse.  It must have been a very worrying time, and I hope Mr A continues to make a good recovery. hug

  Sorry to hear this - nothing worse than trying to cope with a situation like that while out of your home environment, particularly at this time of year. Hope all goes well for you now and that the worst is over.
