  1. Injury/trauma to the plantar fascia? I have several benign plantar fibromas on the bottom/arch of each foot from a lifetime of dance/exercise. They feel like small, hard lumps, and it hurts like heck to press on them.
  2. Zofran/ondansetron helped me when an antibiotic+pain med caused nausea and reducing meds were not an option (trauma). I hope you feel better soon!
  3. Love my Eufy! It's so much quieter than my roomba and has a longer battery life. The eufy is also slimmer than the roomba and doesn't get caught under furniture as much as the roomba. That said, nothing beats the roomba's virtual wall "lighthouses if you don't want the robot wander all over the house; the Eufy has magnetic strips if you need to close off an area, but they aren't as easy to use as the virtual walls. My roomba is the 690, so later models might be quieter. My advice is to watch Amazon's Warehouse deals, you can get an open box or slightly scratched new robot vacuum within your price range:

  5. Could be age related; my MIL has mild dementia and functions reasonably well in her daily routine; but put her in a stressful or unfamiliar environment and her cognitive function just disappears. If she normally does not forget details or give inaccurate or untrue information, then I would likely attribute her behavior to age, stress, and illness.
  6. My first thought was pertussis: Pertussis in adults can present differently than in children. For one thing, you have likely been vaccinated at some point in your life, so while you can still get pertussis, symptoms may be may be milder. 1. Paroxymal, violent, uncontrolled cough 2. Duration of cough > two months 3. Unproductive cough 4. Vomiting/urge to vomit after coughing spell If your kids have gotten the pertussis vaccine, their vaccinations are likely more recent than yours conferring greater immunity to circulating pathogen.
  7. In my opinion, chiropractic and PT could help reduce pain and increase function. DS15, a year-round soccer player, has disc space issues at L4-L5, sees the chiropractor sometimes twice weekly, and does prescribed PT exercises daily. Both treatments seem to complement and enhance each other. Could/would you consider trying both? Chiropractic care often requires adjustments over a period of time, but physical therapy exercises are done on your own, requiring fewer sessions (in my experience). Another suggestion: Mat Pilates. My husband has bulging lumbar discs and swears that weekly classes eliminate his back pain and muscle spasms. If we miss a few classes, then the pain returns. There are lots of Pilates videos on YouTube, my advice is to do at least 10 minutes of Pilates core work each for about a week and see if they help. Epson salt baths, as hot as you can tolerate, might help relax tight or spasming back muscles. Last suggestion: Massage therapy in conjunction to chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic helps the spine, massage helps the muscles; in my experience, regular massages extend the duration of time that DH is free of pain after a spine adjustment. I hope you feel better very soon!
  8. You may already be in Arkansas but here goes: My parents drive through AL to and from SC, and they take I-20 through Atlanta unless the GPS says otherwise.

  11. 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons lukewarm water 2 tablespoons canola oil 4 tablespoons granulated sugar 1 teaspoon non-iodized salt 3 cups sifted bread flour 1 tablespoon Fleischmann's instant yeast Quick bake setting (58 minutes) Reduce amount of instant yeast if machine cycle is longer than 58 minutes. You may need to adjust/change measurements since your bread machine is a different brand than mine.
