Complementary and Alternative Medicine Products. Several of these therapies provide relief from cold symptoms. Vapor rub applied to the chest and neck has been shown to improve cough severity and quality of sleep for the child and parents, but it has a strong smell that children may not tolerate.19 Studies regarding therapeutic use of zinc sulfate show a trend toward decreased duration of cold symptoms when it is taken within the first 24 hours of symptom onset.20 Adverse effects, such as bad taste and nausea, are more common with zinc lozenges than with syrup or tablets.20 Pelargonium sidoides (geranium) extract (Umcka Coldcare) may help resolve cough and sputum production in children with the common cold.18 Buckwheat honey is superior to placebo for reducing frequency of cough, reducing bothersome cough, and improving quality of sleep for the child.16 Honey should not be used in children younger than one year because of the risk of botulism.

Nasal Irrigation and Acetylcysteine. During acute illness, nasal irrigation with saline can help alleviate sore throat, thin nasal secretions, and improve nasal breathing and can reduce the need for nasal decongestants and mucolytics.17 A systematic review of six trials published in the 1990s found that acetylcysteine (commonly used in Europe, but not in the United States, as a mucolytic) may decrease cough after six to seven days of therapy in children older than two years.13 The main adverse effect of acetylcysteine is vomiting.

Inhaled Corticosteroids. Some children with viral cold symptoms also develop wheezing. Although low-dose corticosteroids are ineffective in these children, one review of high-dose inhaled corticosteroids found a trend toward decreased frequency of wheezing episodes that require oral corticosteroids, the duration of episodes, and the number of physician visits.8

Quand tu parles de colloquialisme, tu fais référence à “décr&%*ssé” j’imagine? Pourtant j’utilise ce terme à tous les jours…
Merci pour ton commentaire!

J’adore tes infographiques… les facultés de sciences universitaires devraient les utiliser, ainsi que tous les bureaux de médecin!!
Suggestion pour faire suite à cette présentation: ça serait vraiment bien si tu pouvais expliquer pourquoi on ne peut pas avoir la grippe avec le vaccin anti-grippal…
Merci de nous faire rire ainsi, continues!

Wow, merci beaucoup Julie. Les infographiques, c’est ce que j’aime le plus créer. Je joins donc l’utile à l’agréable
J’adore ton idée concernant le vaccin anti-grippal! J’ai récemment eu une suggestion pour les vaccins de voyage également. J’en prends bonne note pour une prochaine chronique!

Bravo! L’arbre décisionnel est vraiment très drôle (je l’envoie à mes collègues). On en redemande!

Merci beaucoup Alain! Demandez et vous recevrez. 😉

Si je puis me permettre, je trouve que ♫♪♫ douleurs musculaires intenses ♪♫♪ est une douce métaphore…
Tu aurais dû écrire que la grippe donne mal à des endroits de ton corps que tu savais même pas qu’ils existaient. Et qu’on continue à avoir mal longtemps. Et qu’on est fatigué pendant un mois, en plus (je l’ai eu pour la première fois à 30 ans et je me suis même pas mise en arrêt de travail… mais bon, je suis phobique sociale et consulter le médecin, remplir le formulaire de mise en arrêt, mettre mon employeur dans la mouise pour chercher une collègue pour me remplacer, c’était trop pour moi… on est névrosé ou on l’est pas…).

Ayant eu la grippe une seule fois dans ma vie personnellement, je suis 100% d’accord avec toi! Chaque muscle de mon corps était douloureux. Rien à voir avec une douleur musculaire après un effort physique. Vraiment bizarre et plutôt désagréable.

Bravo pour votre site en général. A propos du rhume, il manque la réponse à la question essentielle: est ce que prendre froid donne le rhume? Ou sortir avec les cheveux mouillés? Ou attraper un chaud et froid en passant du métro à dehors? Ou pire, en marchant pieds nus sur un carrelage froid (il parait que c’est la mort assurée…)

Tu obtiendras la réponse à ces questions légendaires en répondant au quiz suivant sur les remèdes de grand-mère!

J’arrive en retard, mais je dois commenter. J’en étais à lire TOUS les billets pour me divertir et m’instruire. Mais la maudite grippe… Je l’ai eue une fois y’a de ça un an et demi. Tsé, quand tu te TRAÎNES pour aller chez vous, que tu penses perdre connaissance dans le métro, que t’as mal au point de te demander si t’as pas confondu le 2 de 27 ans avec un 8 comme dans 87 ans. ÇA. Celle qui fait que t’es fatigué pendant un mois, celle qui fait que tu te réveilles la nuit en ayant peur d’étouffer, celle qui fait que tu fais paniquer ta soeur infirmière qui te menace de te rentrer à l’hôpital si tes 0897348725634324 puffs de Ventolin fonctionnent pas.

Cré moé, si t’as eu la grippe une fois, tu sais c’est quoi. Tu ne confonds plus JAMAIS avec un p’tit rhume.

Pis oui, décrissé, c’est le mot (j’aime pas me censurer, j’aime trop mes jurons pour ça).

C’est bien la grippe en effet. J’ajouterais bien quelque chose mais tu as parfaitement résumé tous les symptômes classiques!

Je suis abonné alors, j’ai dû l’avoir 3 fois de sûr et peut-être une quatrième, mais j’ai des circonstances atténuantes ayant été imunodéprimé. Généralement je tape entre 40° et 41° et c’est un peu le mode survie pendant trois/quatre jours. Le seuil de la douleur dépend bien évidemment des individus mais je trouve les douleurs musculaires plus (très) dérangeantes (on se sent comme du flanc à 70°) qu’insupportables.
Sur le contenu de l’article, le graphique est plutôt bien fichu, humoristique, surtout la partie des AB!

Merci beaucoup Philippe! Je n’ose même pas imaginer ce que peut être une grippe avec un système immunitaire compromis…

Dis-moi est-ce que l’echynacée peut aider à fortifier notre système immunitaire afin d’aider le corps à mieux se prémunir contre une grippe?

Influenza B is a type of flu that is similar to influenza A. However, while A usually afflicts people in the early winter, influenza B can infect any time of the year. Another difference between the two, according to Dr. Vincent Racaniello, a professor at Columbia University, and author of "The Virology Blog," is that type B can only pass from human to human unlike type A bird flu or swine flu. However, researchers have found that gray and harbor seals can contract influenza B as well.

Type A and B share many symptoms.

One of the earliest symptoms of type B influenza is a fever. The National Institute of Health reports that the fever can come on quickly and go as high as 106 degrees. However, according to the Penn State College of Medicine, while A and B influenza share the same symptoms, type B generally produces much milder symptoms, so the fever will not be as acute. Also, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) reports that adults usually have a lower fever temperature than children do. The fever is often accompanied by body aches and fatigue.

Penn State Medical Center also reports that as the fever begins to leave, respiratory symptoms begin to develop. These symptoms are a stuffy or runny nose, cough and sore throat. These symptoms can become worse over time, and even turn into bronchitis or pneumonia if not treated. While these symptoms will usually disappear within a week, the cough can remain for several weeks.

There are times when type B influenza can affect the stomach also, which is why some people refer to it as the "stomach flu." The stomach flu is not a different type of flu virus; it is simply symptoms of the flu that affect the stomach. Some of these symptoms, as listed by the NIH, include vomiting, nausea and loss of appetite.

Influenza B symptoms, while the same as influenza A symptoms, are not quite as severe in their intensity. When you get a flu shot, it is meant to protect you from both influenza A and B strains.

Poisoning is most often due to contaminated food or water. Arsenic is a natural compound that occurs in the soil, sometimes in dangerously high concentrations. Many cities and municipalities filter and test their water, but not all do; people who drink from private, particularly old, wells may also be at risk. Drinking only filtered, tested water is a good way to rule out this possibility. In rarer cases, people are intentionally poisoned, usually by a caretaker or someone else with direct access to food and water supply. Anyone who suspects intentional tampering should seek help from local authorities. Arsenic poisoning isn’t always fatal, but it can have life-altering consequences if left untreated for long periods of time.

43) To the lady that said she can not think of anyone who would want to hurt her. My own sister.

41) What poison acts slowly? I have been had tummy problems off and on for over a year now. I've been to the ER and the doctor never found an issue, although for the last 4 months not hardly a day goes by that I am not ill?

I suspect I am being given something, but what, I have no idea.

40) If you believe someone is poisoning you, there is an easy test. When he pours coffee for you and him, switch cups on him.

39) Are you people serious? I never dreamed this kind of thing was so widespread!

The reason that I'm here is because, I just read about that doctor whose trial is going on about him poisoning his wife with cyanide! That always piques my interest, because I truly believe my mother was murdered years ago by a con artist (his ex-wife and their daughter) that she married, but I could never prove anything because, I didn't know what type of poison he used.

It's a very long story, but it involved a substantial amount of money and property and as soon as the property was paid off, he talked my mother into purchasing a pre-need plan (for her burial plot and funeral) and within less than a year she was suddenly diagnosed with breast cancer! All the years before she'd been as healthy as a horse, with no health problems at all! Anyway, she died a few years later and I knew he had done something to hasten her death so, he could get all the money and property, which he did!

It has taken a great toll on me not being able to get any help or be able to prove anything, but what is still disturbing is how her skin had turned yellowish with tiny purple dots after she died (along with some other similar things described here). At the time, I can remember asking why her skin was so yellow and her husband repeatedly said it was from all of the carrot juice she'd been drinking! Then, years later, I learned that the purple dots are definitely tell-tale signs of someone being poisoned, yet nobody seemed to have even noticed!

Anyway, it turns out that even if I could find out for sure what he did to her, there's nothing I could do about it now, because he's dead and he passed down all of the money/assets to his evil daughter, who, ironically, had a husband that suddenly dropped dead of cancer too!

So, all of you who keep having strange things happen to you (especially, on a consistent basis), if I were you, I'd try to set him/her up with a hidden camera/video, a recorder, setting up the containers in a specific manner so that you can see if they've been moved/used, marking the levels of fluid, etc., as well as, saving some of the things like shampoo, drinks, etc. that you think have made you ill by pouring small amounts in bottles, so if necessary, they can be tested later.

Advice about avoiding sexual transmission of Zika virus can also be found on the following websites:

  • Low-grade fever
  • Arthralgia, notably of small joints of hands and feet, with possible swollen joints
  • Myalgia
  • Headache, retro-ocular headaches
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Cutaneous maculopapular rash

Zika virus infection usually causes a mild disease (with the exception of pregnant women). However, as Zika infection may cause a rash that could be confused with diseases such as measles or dengue, these serious diseases do need to be ruled out. Diagnosis of Zika will first and foremost be based on symptoms, travel history and exclusion of other diseases including measles, rubella and dengue.

The incubation period is typically 3–12 days. There is no specific therapy for Zika virus infection and acute symptoms typically resolve within 4–7 days. Use paracetamol for pain and fever if needed. Until dengue can be ruled out do not take aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen, given the risk of bleeding.

Serious complications from Zika virus infection are uncommon. However, based on research to date, there is scientific consensus that Zika virus is a cause of microcephaly and other severe fetal brain abnormalities as well as Guillain-Barré syndrome.

Further information on Zika virus infection is available on the following websites:

What types of testing for Zika virus are available to test pregnant women?

Reverse-transcriptase PCR (RT-PCR) can be used to detect the Zika virus during the first 1 week (in serum) to 2 weeks (in urine) of the illness.

Testing whole blood is a suitable alternative to serum, particularly in investigations during the first 2 weeks. After the first 2 weeks, advice from an infectious disease specialist or microbiologist should inform any PCR testing.

This RT-PCR test is currently performed in Wellington at ESR, Auckland at LabPLUS, and Christchurch at Canterbury Health Laboratories, with an expected turnaround time of 2 working days.

Serology is less reliable due to potential cross reaction with antibodies against other similar viruses (including dengue). This makes it difficult to differentiate Zika virus infection using antibody testing alone. Additionally, on 5 May 2017 the CDC issued a Health Alert Notice (HAN) sharing evidence that IgM antibodies may stay in the body for months after the infection, making it difficult to determine if a positive IgM antibody test on a pregnant woman reflects a recent infection or one acquired before the pregnancy. The HAN is available on the CDC website.

For these reasons, while a potentially valuable diagnostic tool Zika virus serology may be difficult to interpret and should involve a discussion with a microbiologist prior to testing.

Zika virus RT-PCR can also be performed on amniotic fluid, although it is not currently known how sensitive or specific this test is for congenital infection. The likelihood of an infected fetus developing a fetal abnormality is not known at this time.

Mosquito season is just around the corner, which means the U.S. and other countries are ramping up mosquito control in an attempt to contain the rapidly spreading Zika virus.

No more effective than placebo for reducing duration or severity of cold symptoms

RCT = randomized controlled trial.

Information from references 7, 11, 14, and 23 through 28.

Antibiotics and Antihistamines. In adults, as in children, antibiotics do not decrease the duration or severity of illness, even when purulent rhinitis is present.7 Sedating and nonsedating antihistamines are ineffective for cough and other cold symptoms.11, 23, 29

Opioids, Intranasal Corticosteroids, and Nasal Saline Irrigation. Despite widespread use, codeine is no more effective than placebo for reducing cough.11, 24 The American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) does not recommend other opioids for the treatment of cough.24 Although intranasal corticosteroids reduce swelling and inflammation of the nasal mucosa, they have not been shown to significantly benefit patients with the common cold.26, 27 Nasal irrigation with hypertonic or normal saline does not provide significant relief for cold symptoms in adults.28

Complementary and Alternative Medicine Products. When used solely for treatment of symptoms after they appear, vitamin C does not consistently reduce their duration or severity.14 Herbal preparations containing Echinacea angustifolia are not beneficial.25 Many physicians have recommended increased fluid intake and inhalation of heated, humidified air to thin secretions during a cold. No randomized trials have assessed the effect of increasing fluid intake in adults,30 and a Cochrane review found inconsistent study results for steam inhalation.31

Decongestants With or Without Antihistamines. Oral or topical decongestants alone seem to be somewhat effective for short-term relief of cold symptoms, compared with placebo.32 Pseudoephedrine and phenylephrine decrease nasal edema to improve air intake.32 Although antihistamines do not work as monotherapy, combination medications containing a first-generation antihistamine and decongestant may be slightly beneficial in relieving general symptoms, nasal symptoms,23 and cough.11 Combination medications are recommended by the ACCP to treat acute cough.29

Anticholinergics, Dextromethorphan, Guaifenesin. Ipratropium (Atrovent) is the only orally inhaled anticholinergic recommended by the ACCP for cough caused by a common cold,24 and one study showed that the nasal formulation decreases rhinorrhea and sneezing.33 Studies of dextromethorphan and guaifenesin for cough are almost evenly split, with some demonstrating benefit and others not.11, 24

Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs. These medications effectively relieve pain from headache, myalgias, and arthralgias experienced during a cold; however, decreased sneezing is the only effect they have on respiratory symptoms.34 The ACCP has concluded that naproxen (Naprosyn) is beneficial in the treatment of acute cough.24

Complementary and Alternative Medicine Products. Table 5 summarizes the herbal preparations that may be effective in adults.10, 14, 18, 20, 35 – 38 An herbal solution containing P. sidoides was shown to reduce the duration and severity of 10 different cold symptoms in a randomized controlled trial.37 Another randomized controlled trial demonstrated the benefit of Andrographis paniculata (Kalmcold) in improving symptom scores.35 A systematic review also indicated that A. paniculata, alone or in combination with Acanthopanax senticosus, may be more effective for symptom relief than placebo.36

The of the many hazards of travel to Central American countries like Mexico is the possibility of exposure to one or more of the many tropical diseases endemic to this region. Most U.S. citizens have had little contact with these diseases so that they are more vulnerable to an unfortunate exposure than natives might be.

Fortunately, by taking some sensible precautions the Mexico traveler should be able to enjoy this country without having to bed down for days on end, seeking out medical care or having to suffer with the consequences for many months after the trip has ended.

    In case your baby is suffering from a high grade fever it might point to the fact that he/she is suffering from bacteremia. Bacteremia is a health condition in which bacteria are present in the blood of the baby.

    Urinary Tract Infection is a bacterial infection that can attack any portion of the urinary tract from kidneys to bladder and from ureters to urethra. A difficulty in urinating, nausea and fever are some of the symptoms that are associated with UTI.

    Meningitis is caused by the inflammation of meninges which is a membrane that surrounds the brain and shields brain from outside influences. This disease is caused by either a bacterial or a viral infection. Bacterial infection is critical and can be life threatening whereas viral infection is not that severe. Most cases of meningitis are caused by viral infections and other symptoms of the condition are severe headache and a rigid neck.

    Can I Use Fever-Reducing Medicine for Toddler Fever No Other Symptoms?

    Whenever your child is suffering, you want to make sure that you do something urgently to relieve the symptoms at least. In case your baby is suffering from fever you can get him over the counter fever medicine to relieve his/her fever. However, there are a few things that you must consider before buying these medicines.

    • The medicine cannot completely eliminate fever. You must realize that medications are just going to make your child feel better and comfortable. Acetaminophen and ibuprofen would not in any way cure your kids’ health issue. They would only bring down your kid’s temperature by one or two degrees, but would not completely eliminate fever. The reason is because fever is in fact a tool used by the body to fight infection because germs are comfortable at normal body temperature and die as temperature increases.
    • Choose the suitable fever reliever. You must choose the medicine wisely for your kid. In case your baby is not more than 6 months you must not give ibuprofen to your baby, though ibuprofen is known to bring fever down much quickly. Acetaminophen is approved for such babies but it has been known to cause stomach problems for babies with delicate stomachs.
    • Stick with one fever reliever. Doctors suggest that one should not mix medicine because it can result in over medication of your child. The two medicines mostly mixed are acetaminophen and ibuprofen which might be beneficial in decreasing your kids’ fever quicker, but is NOT recommended by experts.
    • Read the instruction carefully. Make sure that while you are giving medicine to your child, read the labels cautiously. Also make sure that the dose you give your baby is according to the weight of your baby. Most medicines contain a dropper to give medicine to babies. The dropper of one medicine should not be used to administer dosage of another medicine.

    You must take your baby to the doctor immediately if he/she is less than 2 months old. In case the baby is more than 2 months old, he/she should be taken to the physician immediately if the kid is lethargic and appears to be very ill. If your baby is finding it difficult to breathe or is bleeding from the skin, it is a sign that you must take your toddler to the doctor as soon as possible. Headache, neck stiffening or confusion are also warning signs in a baby more than 2 months old and in such a circumstance the baby should be taken to the physician. Apart from these conditions, kids should be taken to the hospital in case the fever continues for more than five days or if fever rises above 102.2 °F.

    Die Grippe (Influenza) ist eine schwere Atemwegserkrankung, die durch Viren hervorgerufen wird. Grippe ist sehr ansteckend. Besonders in den Wintermonaten erkranken viele Menschen. Oft wird aber eine einfache Erkältung als Grippe verkannt, obwohl die Unterschiede sehr groß sind. Lesen Sie hier, welche Symptome für eine Grippe typisch sind und wie Sie sich schützen können!

    • Symptome: plötzlich einsetzendes Fieber mit Schüttelfrost, Knochenschmerzen, Reizhusten, Halsschmerzen, Kopfschmerzen, manchmal Magen-Darm-Beschwerden
    • Ansteckung: über feinste Tröpfchen in der Atemluft, Berührung von kontaminierten Gegenständen und Flächen
    • Erreger: Influenza-A- und B-Viren, die sich schnell verändern können (daher kein bleibender Immunschutz)
    • Vorbeugung: Impfung (für Risikogruppen), Kontakt mit Infizierten meiden, regelmäßiges Händewaschen
    • Behandlung: nur symptomatisch mit Schmerz- und Fiebermedikamenten (Ibuprofen, Paracetamol), Bettruhe, viel trinken
    • Komplikationen:Lungenentzündung, Nasennebenhöhlenentzündung, Mittelohrentzündung, Herzmuskelentzündung, Hirnhautentzündung (Meningitis)

    Wer mit Husten, Schnupfen und Fieber im Bett liegt, fragt sich häufig, ob ihn eine Grippe oder eine Erkältung (grippaler Infekt) plagt. Das wichtigste Unterscheidungskriterium: Während es einem bei einer Erkältung langsam schlechter geht, überfällt einen die Grippe schlagartig.

    Discharge: A bloody or pustular discharge coming from the nipples often indicates breast disease such as breast cancer, according to the Mayo Clinic. The evidence of this discharge usually denotes a malignant condition that requires immediate diagnosis in order to take proper steps in treating it.

    Inverted Nipples: In conjunction with other symptoms, when the nipples appear inverted or flattened, breast diseases such as inflammatory breast cancer and breast cancer may be possible. The symptom often coincides with other symptoms such as pain and swelling.

    Pain: Pain in the breasts and nipples, although indicative of several conditions and issues, can be a telltale sign of breast disease. When the pain accompanies such symptoms as nipple discharge, breast swelling or lumps, contact your physician.

    Peeling of Skin: Peeling or flaking of the nipple skin, in conjunction with other indicative symptoms, is symptomatic of breast cancer and inflammatory breast cancer, according to the Mayo Clinic.

    Lumps: Noticeable lumps in or surrounding breast tissue, such as underneath your arms, indicate both benign and malignant breast diseases. Lumps that come and go with a woman's menstrual cycle are normal hormonal occurrences, however, when lumps don't go away it may be indicative of malignant breast disease.

    Swollen Lymph Nodes: lymph nodes under your arms, in your breasts and sometimes in your neck become swollen and hard when breast disease and other conditions are apparent. Lymph nodes swell to fight off infection, which is a normal function, but when the lymph nodes continue to swell without going down, contacting your doctor is necessary to make a diagnosis.

    Signs and symptoms of eye disease are not only signals that something is amiss with your vision, they could also indicate ailments in other areas of your body. Indeed, many times an ophthalmologist can diagnose signs of such ailments as diabetes by a simple eye examination. Thus paying attention your eyes give can not only save your vision, but could also possibly save your life.

    Bleeding Never ignore bleeding, especially in the eyes. According to the Nethealthbook website, bleeding is always cause for alarm. It could be that a blood vessel is hemmorrhaging. In the case of a person with diabetes, it could be diabetic retinopathy, in which blood leaks from brittle vessels. If an ophthalmologist does not evaluate that condition right away, it could lead to blindness.

    Blind Spots: Blind spots could be an early sign of glaucoma. Sadly, often a patient doesn't even notice them until they invade his main area of vision. The Nethealthbook website notes that such spots could be an early sign of glaucoma. Evaluation by an eye doctor becomes key to avoiding irreversible blindness.

    Blurred/Distorted Vision: Any change in vision is a sign that you should contact your ophtalmologist. This is true especially if you notice blurriness, distortion or clouding in any part of your vision. According to the Docshop website, it could be a common ailment such as astigmatism, which means that objects appear distorted because your cornea has assumed an abnormal shape. This could also be a sign of other common eye problems such as nearsightedness and farsightedness, which a pair of eyeglasses or contacts can fix.

    Peripheral Vision Loss: According to the Docshop website, our peripheral vision is important in that it helps us discern danger from behind. Perhaps the best example of this is when you drive or ride a bicycle. You need to be able to see on either side of you. Thus if you notice a change in your side vision, go to an ophthalmologist and have them test the pressure behind your eyeballs; it could be glaucoma. If the doctor catches this early, he might be able to save your sight. By the time the disease causes pain, or that a significant amount of your vision is already gone, it is most likely too late.

    Because there are many possible conditions that follow under the umbrella of heart disease, the related symptoms are numerous. But here are some key symptoms to be aware of:

    Chest Pain or Chest Discomfort: Few symptoms are more alarming than chest pain. In the minds of many people, chest pain equals heart pain. And while many other conditions can cause chest pain, cardiac disease is so common - and so dangerous - that the symptom of chest pain should never be dismissed out of hand as being insignificant. "Chest pain" is an imprecise term. It is often used to describe any pain, pressure, squeezing, choking, numbness or any other discomfort in the chest, neck, or upper abdomen, and is often associated with pain in the jaw, head, or arms. It can last from less than a second to days or weeks, can occur frequently or rarely, and can occur sporadically or predictably. This description of chest pain is obviously very vague, and as you might expect, many medical conditions aside from heart disease can produce symptoms like this.

    Lightheadedness or Dizziness: Episodes of lightheadedness or dizziness can have many causes, including anemia (low blood count) and other blood disorders, dehydration, viral illnesses, prolonged bed rest, diabetes, thyroid disease, gastrointestinal disturbances, liver disease, kidney disease, vascular disease, neurological disorders, dysautonomias, vasovagal episodes, heart failureand cardiac arrhythmias. Because so many different conditions can produce these symptoms, anybody experiencing episodes of lightheadedness or dizziness ought to have a thorough and complete examination by a physician. And since disorders of so many organ systems can cause these symptoms, a good general internist or family doctor may be the best place to start.

    Syncope (Fainting/Loss of Consciousness): Syncope is a sudden and temporary loss of consciousness, or fainting. It is a common symptom - most people pass out at least once in their lives - and often does not indicate a serious medical problem. However, sometimes syncope indicates a dangerous or even life-threatening condition, so when syncope occurs it is important to figure out the cause.

    Fatigue, Lethargy or Daytime Sleepiness: Fatigue, lethargy or somnolence (daytime sleepiness) are very common symptoms. Fatigue or lethargy can be thought of as an inability to continue functioning at one's normal levels. Somnolence implies, in addition, that one either craves sleep - or worse, finds oneself suddenly asleep, a condition known as narcolepsy - during the daytime. While fatigue and lethargy can be symptoms of heart disease (particularly, of heart failure), these common and non-specific symptoms can also be due to disorders of virtually any other organ system in the body. Similar to lightheadedness and dizziness, individuals with fatigue and lethargy need a good general medical evaluation in order to begin pinning down a specific cause. Somnolence is often caused by nocturnal sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome or insomnia. All these sleep disturbances, however, are more common in patients with heart disease.

    A High-Dose Influenza Vaccine Designed Specifically for People 65 Years of Age and Older 1

    Adults 65 years and older suffer disproportionally from influenza-related morbidity and mortality 2,3 Immunity decreases as we age. 1 While seniors have the highest influenza immunization rate of any age group (>60%), 4 in the elderly, vaccine effectiveness is about half of that in healthy adults and varies depending on the outcome measures and the study population. 3

    This may be because the immune system naturally weakens over time. This phenomenon, known as immunosenescence, also renders seniors less responsive to standard dose † influenza vaccine. 1

    Adults over 65 represent 15% of the general population. 5 In the 2014-2015 Influenza Season, seniors accounted for about 70% of flu-related hospitalizations and about 90% of flu-related deaths 2. Aditionally, the estimated 12,000 hospitalizations and 3,500 deaths attributed to the flu annually in Canada – among all age groups – are often underreported. 3 In addition, influenza can trigger conditions such as strokes and heart attacks, 3,6-8 or worsen diabetes and renal diseases. 3,9-10

    Mood swings can be quite severe early in a pregnancy, and may include feelings of euphoria followed by depression or sadness; again, many of these mood swings are similar to emotional changes that women experience during PMS. Pregnancy symptoms such as frequent urination, morning sickness and nausea, and odd food cravings generally begin around 2-3 weeks into the pregnancy; sometimes these symptoms do not occur until 4-6 weeks into the pregnancy.

    Some women do not experience a missed period during the first few weeks of pregnancy; a period that occurs during the first weeks of pregnancy may be either normal or abnormal. Abnormal periods that occur during the first few weeks of a pregnancy can include a lighter than normal period, spotting, or a very short period. Of course, any bleeding that occurs when you may be pregnant needs to be checked by a doctor immediately.

    If you are experiencing some of these symptoms, and there is a possibility that you can be pregnant, than you should take a pregnancy test as soon as possible. Over the counter urine tests and blood tests performed by a physician detect levels of human chorionic gonadotropin, (HCG), in your blood; this hormone is released by the developing placenta and begins to appear in the blood as little as 5 days after conception.

    Over the counter urine tests are up to 97% accurate; these tests are usually not able to detect HCG in your urine until one week after your missed period. Blood tests are up to 99% accurate, and these tests can detect HGC in your blood as soon as 7 days after your ovulation.

    It is important for you to confirm your pregnancy as early as possible so that you can begin your prenatal care. Early prenatal care is important to the health of your new baby and you during this time. Once you begin to notice any early pregnancy symptoms, and you believe that you may be pregnant, take a test as soon as you can. If you take an over the counter test and it is positive, have the test confirmed by your physician. Remember to stay relaxed during this time, and try to keep your stress levels down.

    Asbestos symptoms are indicators of the serious adverse health problems that are caused by dangerous levels of asbestos exposure. The Occupational Health & Safety Administration estimates that 1.3 million people are exposed to the dangerous of asbestos exposure every year in the work place and should be aware of symptoms of asbestos exposure that may indicate serious underlying health problems. People who work, or have worked, in the shipyard, factory, railroad, construction, automobile, and building industries in the last 60 years may be susceptible to developing asbestos symptoms.

    Most deadly diseases that are caused by asbestos exposure lie dormant for years, so it is possible to suffer from the ill effects of asbestos disease without any noticeable asbestos symptoms. Because of disease latency, asbestos symptoms might appear years - even decades - after initial asbestos exposure. Medical experts assign a latency period to malignant mesothelioma of thirty to fifty years. That’s one of the reasons the disease is so difficult to diagnose; the job where the exposure occurred in most instances ended decades prior to the health problems beginning.

    The clinical manifestations for asbestos generally appear between twenty and forty years after the asbestos exposure has occurred, or begun. The fibrotic process that impacts the lung tissue in this disease maybe accelerated and is certainly exacerbated by smoking. Asbestosis, characterized by severe breathing restriction, develops in nearly half of all workers who have reached “occupational levels” of asbestos exposure.

    The type of asbestos symptoms an individual experiences generally depends on the asbestos-related disease that has been developed. There are various types of asbestos-related conditions; the two most commonly associated with asbestos exposure are asbestosis and mesothelioma. However chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) has reached epidemic proportions in the United States and is a condition that asbestos exposure has contributed to in thousands of cases.

    Asbestosis symptoms commonly include these conditions:

    • Shortness of breath
    • Chronic cough
    • Chest pain
    • Difficulty breathing
    • Difficulty with physical exertion

    Malignant mesothelioma generally develops in people over the age of sixty five and usually occurs in the chest cavity, arising in the pleura in sixty five to seventy percent of all cases. The other predominant location for mesothelioma cancer cases is the peritoneal lining of the organs in the abdominal cavity. It may also affect the pericardial lining of the heart, in rare cases.

    • Shortness of breath
    • Chest pain
    • Tightness in the chest
    • Persistent cough
    • Weight Loss
    • Fatigue

    Pleural effusion is also a common development with mesothelioma. This condition is caused by accumulation of excess fluid in the space between the lungs and the chest wall or diaphragm. It can be the cause of chest pain and reduced breathing capacity.

    Peritoneal mesothelioma is characterized by abdominal swelling and pain. This symptom can also be the result of fluid accumulation – in this case, within the abdominal cavity. Thickening of the peritoneal tissue can lead to additional symptoms:

    • Swelling
    • Weight loss
    • Nausea
    • Obstructed bowels
    • Anemia
    • Fever and/or night sweats

    If you or someone you love is experiencing any symptoms of asbestos exposure, you should visit your doctor right away.

    Amphetamine is a strong stimulant that has been used medically for situations when a person needs to be more alert, as in narcolepsy, a health problem that causes a person to fall asleep at any time. It has also been given to pilots and soldiers to keep them awake and alert for long hours. It does its job in these situations, but the side effects of this drug can be dangerous and damaging.
