Question about Health & Beauty
Doctor delays my son going back to the medical floor so he can use his sleep apnea machine; he could die without it. This doctor delays my son any strong pain medicine for his back. He sits in pain all day and night. I would not call person a doctor. Can you do anything to have an investigation on the poor treatment at the county jail. Someone should do an article about this doctor and care at the jail
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I have had acid reflux for over 10 years. I take Nexium twice a day, (Rx drug). Here is some advice I'll give for helping to reduce the number and severity of the attacks, (they work well for me if I use them, but they ARE NOT a cure!)
1. Do NOT eat within a few hours of going to bed.
2. Avoid spicy foods, tomato sauces, caffeine, and ESPECIALLY chocolate after eating dinner.
3.Sleep on your LEFT side, so that if the acid gets to the top of your esophagus, it will not go into your lungs. When this happens, it usually puts the acid into your right lung and, if the quantity is great enough, you can develop pneumonia.
4. Raise the head of your bed by several inches. You can buy those rubbery type "feet" to put on the foot/legs of the bed under the head.
5. If you are feeling the slightest bit quesy in your stomach before going to bed, swallow a mouthful of a liquid antacid that you can tolerate.
6. This last piece of advice comes from something I discovered on my own and never heard anyone recommend it before, until recently I read a study which said that my advice was proven effective. I wish I'd told someone years ago! I'll bet I could have made a LOT of money! If at any time you feel as if an acid reflux attack is coming on, or you have just experienced one, get several pieces of chewing gum and chew like crazy until you begin to feel better! The only reason that I can think of for its working, is that it helps clear your esophagus of gas bubbles, reducing the pressure that builds up, and it may also send a message to your stomach to start its digestive duties as well.
I didn't mean to be so long winded, but I know what it's like to live with this condition and it "ain't NO FUN!" You might also consult with a gastroenterologist about a procedure being tried now where a skin flap at the base of your esophagus is created to help strengthen the one you already have to keep it from allowing the acid to back up into your throat.All of the treatment is usually done on the inside of your body, so there is a much faster recuperation time and no surgical scar to be seen.

On average, a person needs about 7-8 hours a night. It's very individual and some people need around 10 and others can cope with less. A lot of people don't get as much sleep as they really need. If you are sleeping less than you need you should try some natural remedies to extend your night of sleeping. I would not rush to take any kind of medication unless you have confirmed with your doctor that it's a sleep disorder.

A sleep study is a way of following your sleep
patterns to see what your sleeping habits are. Sometimes it can be done at
home, but often patients are sent to a sleep clinic for a night where sleep
testing (officially called polysomnography) can be done to check your brain
waves, oxygen levels, heart rate and breathing rate while you sleep.
Don't worry it's not an invasive test and aside from needing to fall asleep, you wont need to do much!

Sleep apnea is a condition that affects many people
and can cause very real disturbances to people's sleep and their lives. Sleep
apnea is characterized by very loud snoring, followed by long periods of
silence when breathing either stops or nearly stops. Usually the body is then alerted
by the need to breath and the person sleeping takes a very sudden breath/ loud
snore or gasp. This process is very disruptive to sleeping.
Because throat tissues partially block or fully block
the airways, snoring is almost always associated with sleep apnea.
