Re: Odd symptom

I don't get any of the headaches described on most of the pages I find on CSF leaks.

Odd symptom

Sometimes I get a very thin, clear mucus that just starts dripping from my nose without any other prior symptoms. I find that it leaves a foul taste in my mouth when it happens even though I don't get any of the mucus in my mouth that I'm aware of. Has anybody else experience this? It seems a bit odd.

I'm now considering one of these chairs. https://www.amazon.com/Lightweight-Electric-Wheelchair-Electrica-Motorized/dp/B0829DBJ48/ However, the chair's manual says it shouldn't get wet and yet the company's customer support says that it's ok to use it in the rain. Do they just want to sell a chair? ...

Sleep?

Does anybody else have difficulty getting regular sleep? I find it all too easy to stay up all night on a repeated basis even though my mobility suffers from doing so. Yes, I've tried melatonin, but it only helps when I actually get in bed (no surprise there). It's like I don't get sleepy anymore. I...

Re: Zinger Chair?

Do you know the cost of this one? It looks amazing! No, I don't know the cost. Though, their website states that there are charities that are buying them for disabled veterans. You are still just 'shopping' at this point, correct? Yes, still shopping. I think that I would have a hard time getting i...

Getting up

Getting up after a fall can sometimes be a challenge. I sometimes use our stairs to get my legs below me. Here's a video with some additional ideas.

However, this person still has full use of their legs. My legs don't often bend like that.

Re: Swollen ankles and feet

It is too soon for me to make any definitive conclusions about the LegXerciser at this point with regard to its long term benefits for me. Time will tell. Should I be able to confirm improvement in the future, I will post an update. At this point, the one conclusion I am sure of is that my legs get...

Re: Swollen ankles and feet

Hi ElliotB, I just received the "LegXercise" machine I ordered and am trying it out now for the first time. I am impressed with it. If you have any type of issue with your legs such as stiffness and/or cramping, swelling or have lost the ability to use them, it may be a good idea to invest in one an...

Re: Shoulder to shoulder with the 'Desatascador'.

As I have already suggested, degaussing to remove magnetite from the shoulders is essential because this deposit is easily transferred to the brain by large electromagnetic fields at 50 or 60 Hz we use in our daily lives. Here, and I stand by this, it is probably due to holding the plastic body of ...

Re: Zinger Chair?

do you get a lot of rain in your area? Yes, and also a few days of snow each Winter. The driveway is also sloped and full of pine needles. did you find something else that you prefer? I'm still shopping, but something like these look intriguing. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073V11B1Q/ or https://www....
