  1. Anyone tried these for pain and inflammation? Success or not? Brands?
  2. This is whole subject landed in my in box over a month ago when a friend, whose dog was affected by DCM, sent me some links. I spoke with our vet and immediately started the process of switching their food from a boutique brand (I thought I was making the best choice) to another brand. My golden looks better on his new food. DH remarked the other day that the dog's coat is better, his overall body condition looks better (it looked good before, but we always had trouble keeping him at ideal we don't), and he is overall more active. One of our senior dogs, who has some health issues, seems to have more energy. I'm not seeing great improvements in our other senior dog, but she has always been in good body condition and energetic. I don't know the "whys and wherefores" of dog food. It has been a difficult search process. I didn't want a super high protein food. Didn't want the grains and legumes that were suspected. Didn't want a company known for recalls. Didn't want a food the dogs would refuse to eat. Didn't want questionable ingredients. Did I mention it has been a difficult search. Not to mention one of my senior dogs needs mostly wet food. I do find grilled chicken to be well received by all the dogs 🙂
  3. Exactly!!! This explains better what I'm trying to solve. Thank you for wording it better....... Plain cotton is so NOT my friend when I workout.
  4. I’m looking for something to wear during workouts.
  5. What are good underwear options? I want something to wear under workout leggings. Some suitable for middle age body. Most of the reviews I’ve read were written by young in shape women
  6. Youngest: biology with lab chemistry with lab lab physics with a math lab (this was a physics lab, but it was mostly math oriented) Oldest: biology with lab chemistry with lab physics no lab (she did Conceptual Physics) Equine Science with "lab" (barn work, riding lessons, barrel racing)
  7. My GP recommenced twice a month massage. Trying to work those into the budget
  8. I’m getting another opinion soon. I was originally told laser was not an option
  9. Good point. The fibromyalgia has been “behind the scenes” for some time. Pain has been overshadowing everything
  10. I have been diagnosed with spondylolisthesis L4-L5 and degenerative disc disease L4-S1. It hurts. It is literally a pain in the butt. Sciatica, leg pain, hip pain, foot pain, etc. I got this diagnosis a while ao and I've been trying to make things better but not doing a good job of it. I did PT for about a year with little success. Now i'm working with a trainer. Initially it was a not a good thing. Achilles tendonosis and aggravated plantar. But, after changing directions, it became a good thing. Pain decreased, strength increased, etc. Now...not so much. We have been focusing mostly on lower body...lunges, squats, bridges (different types and degrees of difficulty), single leg "stuff", planks, "deadbugs", etc. Since increasing the degree of difficulty and focusing more and more on lower body, I'm finding the pain is increasing and recover time is getting slower and slower. So my question is....where to go from here? I'm thinking I need to change directions again and not focus so much on lower body. Anyone else....Dr Hive.....who has degenerative discs and pain have experienced any of this. I could use some feedback. The trainers will always push and push. I know is their job. I'm just thinking that as a hormonally challenged, almost 60 yr old, damaged back lady, I should be going in another direction. Give me some feedback and ideas great Hive!!
  11. It seems like half the people I know are involved in a MLM of some type. 99% I am not interested. Recently I've started telling people that we do not support any MLM as we know so many people involved in XYZ that it wouldn't be fair to single someone out for special consideration.
  12. I'd try to find out why. Homocysteine? Cholesterol? Genetic factors such as clotting or Marfans or something else entirely? Then go from there.
  13. I've done this a couple times over the past year. Basically I've said something like, "thinking of you today and remembering fondly dear..... on what would have been his birthday" I've also called. My aunt in particular said she appreciated the call. Evenings get long

    changed my mind about the post....
  15. IT just came out with a neck cream. I've not ordered it and I haven't found it in stores yet. Due to the cost, I'd rather try a sample in stores before buying the product.
