7 States View Thread
Posted by wendyn on 11/04/09 at 18:10

Rick. Dude - 7 states?

10 provinces and 3 territories. In Canadian math - that adds up to 13.

We know lots about America because we learn about a lot of other countries in school (especially our main neighbors to the south) and we get all of your major channels and TV shows. Many Canadians are more familiar with American history, celebrities and issues than they are about those in their own country.

Yes, that's a problem.

If you ever get up this way again you'll have to let me know. We are trying to get back to the Chicago area - maybe next summer. But we'll see. It always ends up being such a busy vacation seeing family - but I love Chicago.

How is the grandfetus now? We are at about 26 weeks and all is well.

My son cracks me up though. At one point he tried to convince his girlfriend to put off an exam until April because 'she'll be home with a baby all day so she'll have loads more time to study.'

When I gave him that look he said, 'What? Newborns sleep all the time.'

I laughed so hard that I almost cried. Parenting is such a fun learning experience.

Re: im a lifeguard, with plantar fasciitis, need help choosing a shoe View Thread
Posted by Jeremy L, C Ped on 10/31/09 at 11:04

Because performance water shoes typically possess elements necessary for non-paved walking/trekking, the majority of these products have greater midfoot support and integrity than running shoes. Add to it that running shoes are designed for a running gait, and water/trail shoes have far greater lateral column stability characteristics.

I cannot encourage you enough to look for these kinds of shoes through a knowledgeable outdoor outfitter. Mass shoes retailers and sporting goods trade channels tend to only carry the models made for an outdoorsy look, but lack all the midfoot support technologies.

I'm with you on Palin's death pannel comments, or what ever her terms were. Simple fear mongering. State a page #, quote a statement then express what concern you have, but to just throw out something like that, no credibility. I don't even feel motivated to look for what thread she was trying to weave when she takes that approach.

Help With MRI Results of Left Ankle View Thread
Posted by AnneL on 7/29/09 at 19:27

I have been dealing with foot and ankle trouble for almost a year. Several injections have not helped, icing, stretching, staying off of it for an entire week etc. MRI says moderate chronic proximal plantar fascitis. Partial intrafascial tear within the central cord attachment to the calcaneus superficial measuring 5mm in length and involving 25 to 30% of the fascial thickness dorsoplantar.Mild distention of the varicosities along the tarsal tunnel and plantar foot, likely related to a hyperemic state associated with chronic proximal plantar fascitis. Previous MRI of left foot done earlierdid not show any abnormalities. Most of my pain is in the ankle and middle interior region of my foot.I do not have much heel pain. Is there anything else I can do to try to and improve my situation? Any suggestions are appreciated.

Allie,

I think the shameless opportunism for, power, funding, what ever the motives, has the potential to discredit legitimate environmental concerns. The most ridiculous thing I heard was on the History channel. They did a program on the 'year without a summer' 1815 I think. They had to get the jab in by saying it was the burgeoning industrial revolution that caused it.

I don't think we got out of the 60's here in Chicago today. Do you remenber the hole in the ozone layer? That sucker closed up, don't hear much about that now do we. Sensationalism sells, perhaps we don't get behind the advancement of legitimate science without a jolt of not so legit fear.

John,

John Coleman a Chicago weather icon and the man behind the weather channel wrote an interesting paper on the topic Jan 28, 2009. When ever anyone tells you the science is settled, it's time for the alarms to go off. Temperatures have gradually declined over the past decade. We are now measuring the ocean temps, far better than fickle air, which changes as buildings go up and down, colors change from faded blacktop to fresh etc...

I'm not going to say warming isn't an issue, I'm not saying man isn't doing dangerous things to the planet. I do believe that the global warming / climate change movement is far from a well based science. Way too much raw opportunism going on.

Re: Michael Jackson View Thread
Posted by john h on 6/30/09 at 10:47

Wendy of course you are correct. We often try to make out people to be something in death that they were not in life. Jackson was a great entertainer who was eccentric to say the best. I rarely thought of him at all other than when I would see his name in the news. Farrah Faucett was a mediocre actress and may have been a very nice person. She suffered from breast cancer as do millions of other women each year. The only thing that makes her different was she was a celebrity. How much notirety did Mother Theresa get when she died? A lot of people likely do not even know she died. The media and what sells has much to do with this. Bad news sells. Death in itself sells so reporters go after what sells. Does not say much about our society.

If we had a TV channel that ONLY reported good news I wonder how it would do? We might be surprised. I think it is NBC that recently started devoting near the end of the program a good news story. Sort of a good way to end the program.

Re: Artists View Thread
Posted by john h on 6/28/09 at 16:53

Marie: I think the answer, if there is one, to this question lies in your word 'value'. We all place different values on different things. A blind man may place no value on Michael Jackson as his dancing was as much or more a part of him than his singing. To me he was one of the great talents of my time. He not only wrote music by choreographed much of his dancing. He and Elvis were perhaps the great entertainers of my lifetime which go back far. I think he had the highest selling record of all time. Entertainers real value, in my mind, it that they can make you feel good, happy, sad, and a spectrum of feelings that most cannot do. How does one describe 'feelings'? Was Michael of more value than than Dr. Salk, Madame Curie, Martin Luther King? I think not. He was one the top two in my value system as a singer dancer. Elvis and him stood tall at what they did as entertainers.
Both of their personal lives ended up in disaster. Here we all sit and wonder how could such talent and so much wealth earned end up like Elvis and Michael Jackson?

We might ask the same question about great athletes. I still drag out my CD of 'Thriller' and will stop on a channel that happens to be playing it. How about the Beetles? They have to rank up there and many would put more value on them than Michael.

Is there any question that Mother Theresa added value to her times? Could she perhaps be labeled an artist?

WWII Historical Documentaries View Thread
Posted by john h on 5/25/09 at 19:23

I spent most of the day watching the History channel. Watching many of the WWII documentaries. One event which I did not recall was when the Admiral of our carrier group north of Midway launched a fleet of dive bombers on the Japanese Carriers approaching Midway. The Admiral knew and the pilots knew it was a one way trip as they did not have enough fuel for the round trip. As I recall all died. The battle of Midway early in the war was perhaps the most decisive battle against Japan. We destroyed all of their carriers when we were greatly under maned. They never recovered. I am not so sure Commanders in this day and age would make hard decisions like that. The Doolittle Raiders at least had a chance and most did crash land or bailed out over China. The pilot in the second B-25 on that raid was my Commander in pilot training. Amazing that we have men and women who will step up when called upon to do the impossible.

One of the heroes of that battle was the officer who broke the Japanese code and allowed our carrier group to get into a position to attack the superior Japanese force. I think he was a mathematician from Harvard and of course a Navy Officer.

Re: Flu View Thread
Posted by john h on 4/28/09 at 11:52

Marie: Even the current administration is not recommending we go forward with manufacturing a mass amount of vaccine. Not sure why, as it would seem to me that this would be a no brainer. They are working on a vaccine and apparently do not think there will be a problem to develop one shortly. The news about not recommending a vaccine for everyone was on the news on several different networks. I suspect we will also be short on Tamiflu and the other drug used for treatment (Relenza?). The swine flu seems to be spreading throughout the world and although it may not be any worse than the regular flu one has to remember the regular flu kills around 37,000 Americans each year. If the swine flu were to run rampant in our country I assume we would have a lot more than 37,000 deaths from it and it could be in the millions worldwide. We see a lot of people wearing mask. Fact is this virus can go right through a mask although it might help others if you have it and are coughing. I still keep my dose of Tamiflu around which for about $15 or so seems to offer some great benefits. Some of the drug company stocks are starting to shoot up.

We are now almost 100 days into the new administration and we have no Surgeon General to step up to the podium and calm the people. Obama can speak well but the folks would probably be more convinced if the words come from a Doctor who is the Surgeon General of the United States. I bet we get a Surgeon General rather quick now that this is the big news of the day. This has been mentioned on the national news also. Can you think of a good reason why we do not have a Surgeon General after 100 days? That would seem a simple enough job to do. Just do not make it a political appointment like Clinton did with our Doctor from Little Rock (Dr. Joyclin Elders). She was ill qualified to be the Surgeon General. Not that she was not a good Doctor but she was not the best at going before the public and inspiring confidence. She returned to Little Rock to practice.
I have seen a few Doctors who are regulars on a couple of the national TV channels who are great at speaking and getting points across. They are well known to the public and inspire confidence who could easily fit the profile. Anyway, I am sure you agree we need a Surgeon General and need him/her fast.

The last time I went to my Doctor I was sitting in the waiting room and people all around me were coughing. I began to think if I would be better off not going that day. If they are closing schools then one can only imagine what waits for you in the Doctors waiting room. When my turn came the nurse who first saw me was coughing badly which gave me more pause on the dangers of something like a disease that is spread by human contact.

I do not think we have a reported case of swine flu in Arkansas but it is all around us and we have a lot of Mexican Latinos living here who come and go. I think it is Flu Season in New Zealand and down under and the CDC is waiting to see what develops down under. What was that number of deaths during the big pandemic early in the 20th century. I think it was 90 million deaths and we did not even have mass transportation like planes to help spread it.

The economy does not need this type of jolt as do the people. Lets hope this runs its course fast and turns out to be just another strain of flu. Do you ever watch the new program 'The Doctors'. I really enjoy it. There are 5-6 real doctors who discuss real problems and I might say very openly. Nothing is off limits and they have some great guest. One of the best medical programs I have watched. It must come on during the day as my wife has it recorded and I never see it on an evening show. It is growing in popularity. The young Doctor who heads it is an emergency room doctor in a large hospital and the others are from various disciplines. Yesterday they were discussing 'Painful Sex'. One of the Doctors is a Gynecologist and she was funny as could be. Like I said there is nothing off limits and they discuss it in a serious manner.

Dear Dr. DSW;


Hello I called the clinic to ask why I didn't get to see Dr. Jules and they said it was their policy to first be seen by the general clinic and then they make referrals. In my case, they are making referral to ortho (for orthotics and brace) before they are referring me to surgery (Dr.jules). They said it was POSSIBLe to be evaluated first by Dr. Jules but that is not their standard procedure. Of course they didn't explain this to me and this place is so busy, I just got ushered in through the standard channels. What is your opinion? I am keeping my appointment with the orthotist Dr. Levitz this week because I really do need some support for this foot. but should I pursue a follow up with Dr. JUles even though I want to avoid surgery at all costs?? thanks for your attention.

I suppose we'll know where the bottom was once we have a steady climb and can look back on where we were. I thought we were on the way with a few weeks of stability and slight improvement in the DOW only see it plunge again. I wish I knew the leading indicators, not the official ones but the ones we'll see before the pundits take notice. I gauge activity at the airport as such an indicator.

There indeed is opportunity to be had. There is opportunity in supporting prople do the things that people do in a downturn. Have you seen the Cash 4 Gold ads? There's an example.

Here's a thought; what if you started a solar pannel installation business? Combine that with roofing perhaps? People want to go green but there's way more talk than action, bring the action. How about security? People are concerned with theft in bad times. Not that I endorce playing on fear.

Re: Jeremy: Reebok "On the Clock"? View Thread

Just combining the the words 'JC Penney' and 'Reebok' should foretell enough. None of the major brands distribute truly quality shoes through department store settings (with the exception of Nordstrom). Buying philosophies within this trade channel include stocking items with elevated margins and reduced support features to maximize turns and profits.

As for this specific model, it is an ideal example. The On The Clock is a reduced quality walking shoe with a catchy model name. Although it is available in a variety of width, it actually has fewer technical features than the Princess or Freestyle. Anyone already suffering heel pain should seriously consider if they really want to purchase a shoe like this, and I suggest that it not be worn as primary footwear.

Re: Stimulus Package View Thread
Posted by john h on 1/13/09 at 12:18

Rick: How do you stimulate a citizen to start spending? We hear over and over each day about how bad things are and that the economy is on the verge of a great depression. We almost now expect the worst and it is becoming more ingrained into us each day. It would take more than just money to stimulate me. The people are going to have to regain confidence in our government and leaders. That is going to be a hard sell. Just sending some family $1500 like we did a year ago had zero effect. In fact things got worse. People, even those who have jobs and are in the middle class are being driven by perception and will save any money that comes their way. I have personally cut back on a lot of small things like no more premium channels on TV, stopped most magazines, stop buying stupid man toys, and a lot of other things. It all adds up. The major problem as I see it is to get back consumer confidence. I really do not know how you effectively do that. Historically recessions have lasted almost two years but we are in something worse than a recession but less than a depression. When the Congressional approval rating stands at 7% we have absolutely no confidence in our government or its ability to get us out of what ever we are in. The average guy or gal is sure not going to rush out to buy a new car anytime soon. The Bush 700 billion bailout and the Obama plan for a trillion dollar bailout seems to me to be a shot in the dark. That is about all we have in our gun. It may work but the consequences of failure are enormous as if the stimulus fails the consumer will only become more frightened and tight fisted.

Something that I find shocking is just how most of the industrialized world has all gone into this 'recession' at the same time. Apparently our failures have more than just a ripple effect all around the world in nations such as Japan, Russia, the UK, Europe, and on and on. Some of these nations are worse off than us. Iceland took basically a national bankruptcy. I lived there for a year. They had the highest literacy rate in the world and were/are basically a fishing economy. Toyota had more of a drop off in sales than GM and are shutting down all factories for two weeks. Almost unheard of in Japan. I am not seeing any panic in the streets and everything around my neck of the woods seems almost normal other than a lot of the big box stores are shutting down. What will this new year bring? I still think a 10% unemployment rate is not far down the road particularly if Detroit has to take bankruptcy. I do think that is the final solution for Detroit the next time they step up to Congress wanting more money, I am concerned about government plans to create jobs like building bridges, repairing roads, repairing government buildings, etc. Where do the workers come from that will do the manual labor jobs or the specialized engineering jobs? How do we relocate the workers to the jobs as they cannot sell their homes and are likely not wanting to move their families for government jobs that they know will exist only for a while. It sure sounds like the CCC as I recall them very well. They lived in what looked like military camps with tents and even wore green uniforms. They moved around a lot but did some good work in our national parks. We also had the WPA. he Works Progress Administration (WPA) was a relief measure established in 1935 by executive order as the Works Progress Administration, and was redesigned in 1939 when it was transferred to the Federal Works Agency. Headed by Harry L. Hopkins and supplied with an initial congressional appropriation of $4,880,000,000, it offered work to the unemployed on an unprecedented scale by spending money on a wide variety of programs, including highways and building construction, slum clearance, reforestation, and rural rehabilitation. So gigantic an undertaking was inevitably attended by confusion, waste, and political favoritism, yet the 'pump-priming' effect stimulated private business during the depression years and inaugurated reforms that states had been unable to subsidize. Ultimately WWII ended the Great Depression.

I view Burris as political wallpaper. I seriously doubt there was any pay-off monkey business with Blago, Burris wasn't a big enough player despite his rather elaborate eternal trappings. I do believe that the rule of law will favor his seating. I respect Jessie White but I believe he has misinterpreted the purpose of his State seal on the senatorial appiontment. The intent goes back to the time when any shmuck could ride into DC and claim to be the senator from a given state and without such evidence who would know.

Re: Who Is The Most Admired View Thread

Dr. Wedemeyer: I think a little of both

As I listen to the news each day I am reminded of 'Chicken Little and the Sky is Falling'. The media hits us over the head with a sledge hammer just how bad things are and how bad it is going to get. Is this the job of the media? Certainly a free press is a constitutional right but something seems wrong here? Perception has a way of becoming reality over time. Are we, as consumers buying less, which is one of the basic cause of a recession. Yes, people are losing their jobs and clearly they buy less but I find even people who still have their jobs (around 94%) are cutting back and spending less in anticipation of what the news is telling them. How much of the good things that occur every day do we hear about?

A year ago 'Big Oil' was our evil arch enemy and the cause of $4.00+ a gallon of gas. We hear nothing of Big Oil these days. I think the price of gas ($1.37 a gallon in Arkansas) indicates that even Big Oil or Opec cannot control the price of gas/oil. The ancient law of supply and demand still work.

Does government really know how to deal with a recession. Congressmen and Senators have to depend on their advisers on difficult subjects. We really do not even know who has the Senator or Representatives ear on important subjects. No one really knows how to cure a recession. Our last depression was brought on partly by government actions. Are our leaders making things better or worse. On occasion they have reversed themselves 180 degrees on actions to deal with our current recession. This leads one to wonder just how smart these people are. Is Carolyn Kennedy smart enough to make decisions on a recession? What are are qualifications? Is she more qualified that Sarah Palain who was demonized as having no experience? New York State has a lot of highly qualified Democrats to be Senator. Is Carolyn Kennedy one of them?

Our new President Elect will come into office with more problems than perhaps any President in history. Many will be beyond his control. Many of his promises will not be fulfilled as times have changed since he made those promises. What I am seeing from my small perch in my small city is (1) The stores have fewer buyers in them than I have ever seen at Christmas season. (2) Retail and Office space availability are increasing rapidly as companies and business close or decrease in size. (3) I see as many cars on the road as I have always seen. (4) I read about but do not know anyone who has lost their job. Our job loss in Arkansas is much lower than the national average. (5) We have approximately 5 big box stores close in our city such as Circuit City, Linens & Things, Etc. (6) People are eating out less except for fast food stores like McDonalds. (7) The Health Club I belong to has lost a lot of members. Some companies once paid for some employees memberships. No more so a lot fewer members. (8) I dropped the collision coverage on one of my two cars as it was older and made no sense to keep it. (9) I cut some TV channels from Direct TV I never watch. (10) I gave larger gifts to some of the people I thought need it most this year (paper boy who has been my paper boy/man for over 30 years, Lady who works at the Shippley Donut Shop which I frequent, Lady who waits on me at the Waffle House.

Rick: Speaking of shotguns, Blackwater has developed what is perhaps the most deadly hand held shotgun ever made. It has a round cartridge holder (12 gauge) that holds up to 50 cartridges. It will fire as fast as a machine gun and depending on what cartridge they use can fire with accuracy out to 3000 yds. Some of the cartridges have little fins that open up when the cartridge is relased and can be explosive cartridges that can scatter all sorts of lethal material. It is very short and light other than the 50 cartridges. Made mostly for use in close quarters. They said the enemy combatants fear shotguns more than any other weapon. I saw it displayed in use on the Military Channel last night. I expect to see this in the troops hands in the near future. The canister for the shellls snaps on and off very fast and can handle a variety of shotgun shells depending on what type of use you have in mind. That looks like the ultimate sort of weapon for short range combat.

There were hints Sunday that a stimulus package might be extraordinarily large. Austan Goolsbee, a senior Obama economic adviser, charged that the Bush administration had “dithered” as the economy turned down and suggested that the incoming administration would take dramatic action.

“We’re out with the dithering, we’re in with a bang,” he said on CBS. A senior Democrat, Senator Charles Schumer of New York, said that any package should be as much as $700 billion, equivalent to the recent financial bailout plan.

I received the following email from GM today. As I use their internet site to track needed maintenance on my car I am on their mailing list. The email speaks for itself. Please note they have created a website www.gmfactsandfiction.com I have not yet accessed that site but will.



Dear John Holt,

You made the right choice when you put your confidence in General Motors, and we appreciate your past support. I want to assure you that we are making our best vehicles ever, and we have exciting plans for the future. But we need your help now. Simply put, we need you to join us to let Congress know that a bridge loan to help U.S. automakers also helps strengthen the U.S. economy and preserve millions of American jobs.

Despite what you may be hearing, we are not asking Congress for a bailout but rather a loan that will be repaid.

The U.S. economy is at a crossroads due to the worldwide credit crisis, and all Americans are feeling the effects of the worst economic downturn in 75 years. Despite our successful efforts to restructure, reduce costs and enhance liquidity, U.S. auto sales rely on access to credit, which is all but frozen through traditional channels.

The consequences of the domestic auto industry collapsing would far exceed the $25 billion loan needed to bridge the current crisis. According to a recent study by the Center for Automotive Research:

• One in 10 American jobs depends on U.S. automakers
• Nearly 3 million jobs are at immediate risk
• U.S. personal income could be reduced by $150 billion
• The tax revenue lost over 3 years would be more than $156 billion

Discussions are now underway in Washington, D.C., concerning loans to support U.S. carmakers. I am asking for your support in this vital effort by contacting your state representatives.

Please take a few minutes to go to www.gmfactsandfiction.com, where we have made it easy for you to contact your U.S. senators and representatives. Just click on the 'I'm a Concerned American' link under the 'Mobilize Now' section, and enter your name and ZIP code to send a personalized e-mail stating your support for the U.S. automotive industry.

Let me assure you that General Motors has made dramatic improvements over the last 10 years. In fact, we are leading the industry with award-winning vehicles like the Chevrolet Malibu, Cadillac CTS, Buick Enclave, Pontiac G8, GMC Acadia, Chevy Tahoe Hybrid, Saturn AURA and more. We offer 18 models with an EPA estimated 30 MPG highway or better — more than Toyota or Honda. GM has 6 hybrids in market and 3 more by mid-2009. GM has closed the quality gap with the imports, and today we are putting our best quality vehicles on the road.

Please share this information with friends and family using the link on the site.

Thank you for helping keep our economy viable.

Sincerely,



Troy Clarke

Re: PF and orthotics View Thread

Thanks for the response, and I appreciate it. I have heard of this channel, and I will ask my new podiatrist about it. It's not really what I was asking though.

All of my orthotics seem to PUSH my arch UP by pressing up the arch. (I have high arches, flexible foot) My orthotics all have quite a high arch on them running along the medial side of the orthotic. This seems to give me the most trouble.

What I would like to know is: Can my PF be helped by creating an othotic that presses more on the medial side of the foot below the arch (closer to the big toe bone) and more towards the medial area, closer to the heel? It's a difficult area to describe - but so that the pressure is not against the medial arch itself? This is what my PT was explaining to me and I am looking for a back up opinion on this.

I hope I have described this so that it's understandable. Let me know if I have not, and I will try again. Thank you.

Re: PF and orthotics View Thread
Posted by Jeremy L, C Ped on 11/13/08 at 21:34

The common terminology is called a fascia channel. The medial band of the fascia is exaggerated in the orthotic mold such that the resulting shell places ground forces more in the medial side of the foot and under the lateral column. This technique can be applied to both thermoplastic and foam orthotic designs. Sometimes these channels are filled with soft polyurethane foam, all based upon what the tolerance levels are of the patient.

This kind of design has little to do with reducing excess pronation, and acts solely as an accommodation for those who require it. Allow your doctor to determine where your motion is excessive, and write an appropriate orthotic script from that perspective.

Posted by Jeremy L, C Ped on 11/04/08 at 21:09

I am in complete agreement with what Dr. Wander stated. In addition, you almost want to avoid ANY style that is offered in a department store. This trade channel historically uses athletic shoes as loss leaders in order to help drive store traffic through attractive footwear prices. The vast majority of these advertised shoes completely lack any amount of appropriate midfoot support features, and could very likely aggravate those with heel pain.

New Balance models to specifically avoid are ANY that start with a 3, 4 or 6 in their model designation. Other models could also cause problems, so it's important to have the right shoe from this brand matched to you. I also concur that it's in your interest to shop where there are a variety of brands in order to identify which best matches your foot shape AND your foot's mechanical needs.

I used to call myself a single-issue voter on the essential question of defending civilization against its terrorist enemies and their totalitarian protectors, and on that 'issue' I hope I can continue to expose and oppose any ambiguity. Obama is greatly overrated in my opinion, but the Obama-Biden ticket is not a capitulationist one, even if it does accept the support of the surrender faction, and it does show some signs of being able and willing to profit from experience. With McCain, the 'experience' is subject to sharply diminishing returns, as is the rest of him, and with Palin the very word itself is a sick joke. One only wishes that the election could be over now and a proper and dignified verdict rendered, so as to spare democracy and civility the degradation to which they look like being subjected in the remaining days of a low, dishonest campaign.

If you have been coming to this board on a regular basis you will know that I have long predicted the crisis in the auto industry, unemployment rates, foreclosures and economic downturn will determine this election. That bird's eye view was an ez call. After McCain left a GM plant in Grand Rapids the employees yelled 'Obama 08' until he was out the door. People just do not get how bad it is in Michigan and the rest of the rust belt. The battle is there and until McCain figures out how to reach out to this section of the country he may have to concede the rest of the Midwest. Will adding more advertising do it? I don't think so. Some suggestions. 1. Jobs, 2.) Don't tax their healthcare plans, 3.) Give tax breaks to the struggling middle class, 4.) Set aside research funds for Michigan's universities in alternative fuels, 5.) offer the automotive industry additional funds to retool their factories.

Recent polls show McCain in a dogfight in Ohio, Florida, Virginia, North Carolina, Colorado, Missouri and Indiana. All were won by Bush in 2004 and McCain cannot afford to lose them as he tries to piece together the 270 electoral votes needed to capture the White House.

Obama has a double-digit lead in two recent polls in that state,(MI) home to the automotive industry and a distressed manufacturing-based economy. 'If we see a swing back in our favor, we'll go reengage,' McCain adviser Greg Strimple said.

Posted by Jeremy L, C Ped on 8/04/08 at 18:47

If you have significantly distended fascial bands when the foot is pressured as if in propulsion, then the orthotic shell should have been ordered with an appropriate accommodation for that. The technique is called a fascial relief.

If your orthotic device has a cork (or similar) shell material, then it's a fairly simple procedure to have this relief channel added. Some podiatrists and other professionals will feel confident enough to perform this in their own offices; some will prefer to send the device back to their lab.

If you have a traditional thermoplastic or graphite shell, the original mold will need to be modified, and an entirely new device constructed from it. It's still pretty easy for a skilled technician to do, whether it's directly into a plaster negative mold or a digital file on a CAD-CAM system.

These channels can either be kept empty or filled with soft polyurethane or polyethylene. Since your device is only 6 months old, it's certainly worth asking your prescribing doctor to repair it under warranty.

Re: What's going to happen to the internet? View Thread
Posted by cwk on 7/31/08 at 01:22

Susan,
I did not make my point clear so I will try again.

There are two possible ways we can be charged for the web. One is for internet access and the other is to pay for content.

Almost everyone pays for access now altho free internet access is becoming more and more available in towns of all sizes. Most Americans move and access information thru wired connections to their homes. With a few exceptions these connections are provided by phone and cable companies. Of course these companies are motivated by profit and will maintain price levels and extract maximum profit from their investments — similar to how OPEC sets production quotas to guarantee high prices for oil. But if they charge too much or package access in confusing, expensive ways that are prohibitive to users their profits will actually go down because users have choices. Just like the phone companies are suffering because users are forgoing landlines in favor of cell and Skype these companies will loose market share if they overcharge. Internet users have choices for access and businesses and governments are developing more choices. Amsterdam and some cities in Utah have deployed their own fiber to carry bandwidth as a public utility.Other cities are cutting deals with big companies to provide access. A future possibility is to buy your own fiber just like people go off the electric grid with solar and wind power.


The other way to pay for the internet is to pay to view certain sites or to pay for content. Charging for content has been a huge failure. It ain't gonna happen. The web is like a party- if no one comes the party sucks. No one will come to a pay for view site. That has been proven. The NYT gave up the pay for content program cuz it didn't work. They make money from advertisers who want to grab the eyeballs that read the Times online. Heelspurs is free because it is a sales channel. The content is the reason you come to the Scott's online party but once here you buy stuff or follow links to Goggle ads and Scott makes money. Scott is not going to charge you to come and he is not going to host his site on a server that charges you. No one is going to come to that party so no one will profit- not even the 'corporate marauders' your blogger fears so much.

Free or really cheap content is what drives the economic engine of the web. Of course there are threats to freedom and access and it is very interesting to watch the struggles play out. The best resource for understanding what is going on is The Electronic Frontier foundation. There is also a great new book out called Who Controls the Internet but Wu and Goldsmith.

Free file sharing of music in the 90's helped to pave the road for cheap music and entertainment on iTunes. That hasn't hurt the little guy- indeed it has given the common man and woman more choices in music and entertainment.

Microsoft used to have a monopoly on software but those days are over. You can get free Open Source software, free operating systems and, thru Google, tons of free applications. You don't need Microsoft to create a spreadsheet, a powerpoint or a document. Free works cuz it makes money. That model would be destroyed by creating a high priced web and corporations, like NYT and Google, are not going to let that happen. Neither will governments.

While we must be vigilant about all of our freedoms but the boogie man of Kevin Parkinson's is not a real threat.

I hope I connected the dots in a way that makes sense.

I think I sort of intimated that I did not know if Jay Leno said it or not. The important part is not who said it but that it is basically true even if the numbers are off a bit. They number look sort of in line with what I read.

In my world I think we are all overloaded with bad news each and every day. Apparently that is what sells. My favorite news program used to be McNeil and Lehrer. They managed to report the news without spin. For this they were often chose to be moderators at debates as you could not read any politics into their reporting. They were true reporters and not editorial reporters or readers as we have on all the networks.

I in my little dream world I would like to have 'The Good News Channel'. Only good news would be reported. For example you might report that the employment rate is 95% today rather than the unemployment rate is 5%. There are uplifting stories out there each and every day but who hears about them except perhaps locally. I get sick of depressing news day in and day out. That little bit that I posted was a good example of good news that everyone does not even think about as we are conditioned by the media to tune in and expect to hear all that is wrong with the world and our nation. We are the luckiest people in the World to live in our country. People risk death to enter and live here. You can be what you want to be and go as far as your abilities and drive will take you. Yet, as the article reads we are totally spoiled and become more spoiled with each passing generation. We want and expect what our parents gathered over a lifetime to be ours the day we get married. We expect the government to give us everything form free health care to reimburse us if we make bad investments, build us new homes if we live in the flood plain, make us whole if our company goes bankrupt, or pay us if we do not care to work. It has become our God given right to have all these things and more. There is more to life than politics Marie and neither a Democrat or Republican is going to make your life significantly better. Our government is like a giant rolling stone. It is hard to divert and no one many or one woman is going to move it very much. We have had great Presidents and lousy ones.They were not great because they were a Democrat or Republican. They were great because of who they were as a man. We never know when the next great leader may emerge or from what party he will come. We have had very few great Presidents. We can only hope for one that will not make to many great mistakes. Our government still consist of a Congress, President, and a Supreme Court so hopefully they will act to continue us down the middle. This nation will still be divided almost equally between Democrats and Republican after the election. There will be a lot of unhappy people no matter who wins but we will all continue until we recycle in a new party of Democrats or Republicans. This never changes. This is our lot in life.

Jeremy brings up a good point here and while I agree with his assessment regarding search engines and Dr. Obewan Ka Nobody.

Once and for all do we seriously have to be subjected to this frauds illogical and unsubstantiated rant? He won't post on an academic site because he would be shot out of the water even more aggressively and in greater numbers dispensing these ignonimous ideas. There are no patients there to fool, only learned opposition and he is clearly taking advantage of people searching for a professional who can help them. He avoids engaging the better minds in his profession because quite frankly it’s a very bad decision to bring a knife to a gunfight.

Be forewarned public reading this: this crackpot practices via the internet, does not examine you nor does he rule out conditions that may necessitate medical care. He does not maintain a physical location and yet charges upwards of $300 for a “bag” filled with fluid and call this an orthotic. His junk science has never been validated by any peer-reviewed journal study (where traditional methods have for 1/2 a century and continue to progress, despite his claims otherwise). His colleagues who are familiar with his insert either laugh or shake their head when asked their opinion of how he practices and what he offers.

The professionals here are in unanimous agreement that Dr. Ka Nobody does not understand foot biomechanics as well as he would profess, otherwise he would not make the consistent errors and quote physics that have no basis in what he sells to patients. He selectively misquotes and cherry picks clinical studies to further his agenda and makes audacious claims about a small internet study that involved three patients, none of whom did he examine personally.

He was also asked not to mention his product by name or sell it on this site any longer and instead he makes repeated attacks on the theories and ideas of researchers who are not present or deceased because they cannot defend themselves. Jeremy is more than likely correct that his reasoning for doing so is to draw attention to his device and business. Those of us who truly care about the public we serve have picked up the battle and have had heated arguments ad nauseum on this site with him in order to represent the truth and sane practices.

I was personally provided one of these devices and I can say that it is the most laughable attempt at the biomechanical management of the foot that I have seen yet. You simply cannot control the motion of the foot in any plane with a fluid, let alone the triplanar motion that the human foot possesses. It is a concept that is ancient and was been abandoned long ago and has no place in modern biomechanics. Until he is able to produce peer-reviewed published studies indicating otherwise he is merely making fantastic claims to reap a profit.

Since CPed's can hardly be termed 'scientists', let's you and I go head to head on the issue of how your silly putty insert would control one frequently observed foot condition. I don't want to hear any crap about Pascal, Divine Intervention or how you have changed fluid dynamics when the brain trust at MIT all agree that fluid dynamic properties have been an established science for decades and you certainly did not recreate the proverbial wheel. You also cannot claim that F Scans prove your theories because you simply do not perform these F Scans on the individual patient.

How about a compensated, flexible forefoot valgus (we'll use this because Burns and McPoil estimated it to be the most common plane deformity of the forefoot (and seen often in the cavus foot type) and over the years I have personally seen far more of these than true varus deformities). In this scenario with a valgus greater than say 6°, a person with adequate forefoot inversion is able to adequately make ground contact without affecting subtalar motion to compensate. We would all agree on this I hope.

If the size of the deformity however exceeds the available range of inversion in the longitudinal midtarsal joint axis (LMTJA) the forefoot, in attempt to make ground contact, will invert its full range of motion about the LMTJA and continue to compensate via pronation (dorsiflexion and inversion) about the 1st ray axis and supination (plantarflexion and inversion) about the ifith ray axis. This makes biomechanical sense and is biomechanical fact supported by these authors.

During the contact phase this type of FFV this type of foot could pronate the STJ until the forefoot reaches its fully inverted position via motion about the LMTJ and 1st ray axes and would be limited by the soft-tissue restraining mechanisms to prevent further STJ motion.

In a small FFV deformity the individual may attempt to lock the lateral column during propulsion by inverting the rearfoot. We all see this on visual exam I believe. While this increase in subtalar supination helps stabilize the articulations by bringing the calcaneocuboid joint into its close-packed position, another problem arises; lateral instability. These are the classic invertors whose suffer frequent mortise sprain in an effort to bring the calcaneus into a more normal and stable position.

My question is with all of this rearfoot, midfoot and SJT motion occurring, please explain to us how a fluid in a container (vinyl bag in this case) can resist the forces acting upon it and deliver the fluid where it is needed and not where direct forces (pressure) exerted upon the fluid direct it? A custom molded semi-rigid device can and does accomplish this and the date to support this you merely ignore and refute dogmatically because to honor it would mean that in fact it is you who “just doesn’t get it”!

Pascal Principle, Pascal's law can be interpreted as saying that any change in pressure applied at any given point of the fluid is transmitted undiminished throughout the fluid.

This is simply contradictory and counterintuitive to applied principles of physics and science. In a nutshell your device is simply nothing more than a soft cushion, like a marshmallow, sold at profligate prices to an unexamined patient who casts their own foot.

Your device is NOT based on a prescription and you should abandon that noun from your lexicon and spare us this embarrassment. There are no chambers, channels, posting angles, grooves or accommodations in your device it is simply a template of a bag filled with fluid in differing amounts.

C. Ped advice? View Thread
Posted by LizR on 2/04/08 at 15:14

I just saw a C.Ped in my area for a quick consultation and he was very nice and described the type of orthotics he would make for PF/heel spurs for my feet. (Lift in the heel, padding on top, very supportive heel, heel would be cupped in order to channel the fat pad down and under to provide natural cushion, etc.)

When I asked about athletic shoes types (motion control/stability/neutral) and quality he said his 'theory' was that shoes are really just to protect our feet from rocks/dirt, etc and that any shoe would do...whatever feels comfortable to me. Cheap, expensive...didn't matter. From what I read here shoe quality is high priority.

I am perplexed because I just bought a $100 something pair of Motion control Asics and have been trying to wear them with my Powersteps but they are actually making my feet hurt worse. I have naturally high arches and with an orthotic (custom or Powerstep) it feels like my forefoot is spilling out over the sides of the shoe, as if I'm walking on my pinky toes. It's making the muscles in the inside of my ankles and calves ache too. If I wear my $45 Lady Foot Locker Saucony's I feel normal. Doesn't relieve the PF pain, but doesn't feel aggravated.

My chiro (who I love) recommended I try breaking the Motion Control shoes in again WITHOUT orthotics but they are too hard and still not cushiony or comfortable enough and they just feel 'off.'

Any advice on both shoe quality and finding out what kind of shoes are right for me if the C.Ped I saw said it doesn't matter? Also, do I need to 'adjust' to motion control shoes? For those who have high arches and wear Rx orthotics or Powersteps every day...what type of athletic shoes are best?

* We believe that corporate lawyers and lobbyists are selfless heroes and doctors should be told by drug manufacturers and insurance companies how they should treat patients.
* We believe that not allowing American businesses to bring in cheap goods from Red China, a country with nuclear weapons, is more of a threat to Americans than the cheap Chinese goods like AK-47’s and armor piercing shells which will be used against American policemen.
* We believe that rich oilmen, and their pseudo-expert toadies, know more about the global weather system than thousands of peer-reviewed scientists.
* We believe that all women should still be barefoot, pregnant, confined to the kitchen and not be allowed to vote, and that all gays should be persecuted and vilified.
* We believe that businesses should be allowed to pay any poverty wage scale they wish --- and ignore workplace safety and consumer product safety --- free from any government interference.
* We believe that deer hunters really do need 30-round clips in automatic weapons and that anybody who doesn’t hunt should be classified as “game.”
* We believe that a feeling of self-importance is more important than actually being fair or just.
* We believe there will still BE art after federal funding is canceled, even though the majority of businesses seem to care less (this ignores, of course, the fact that governments and the Church have always been the biggest supporters of art).
* We believe a five-star general, who publically supports the policies of a group of politicians who have a financial stake in a war --- and supports them in spite of the misgivings of his fellow military men --- is not a politician himself.
* We believe the free market that gives us 500+ channels of crapola is STILL better quality than what PBS gives us because we disagree with Frontline.
* We believe the NRA is good, because they stand up for the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution, while the ACLU is bad, because they stand up for the 1st Amendment of the Constitution; forgetting, of course, that without free speech you couldn’t even TALK about the right to bear arms.
* We believe that taxes are too high, even though we’ve never heard of a millionaire NOT being able to pay his or her taxes, but ATM fees are too low and middle class Americans should be proud to pay extra to access their own money.
* We believe that the intrinsic value of every single American can be ruthlessly and monetarily calculated, and that the calculation will show some Americans to be of more worth than others and the whole concept of 'equality' is quaint.
* We believe that standardized tests are essential for placing all Americans in their appropriate little socioeconomic pigeonholes, where they should stay, and know their place, and that to allow them to break out of those pigeonholes with a little bit of financial help would be too much of a burden on the rich occupants of our own pigeonhole.
* We believe that we only have enough money to treat either second-hand smoke or HIV, so we should go ahead and give our rich tobacco cronies a pass and make our rich drug company cronies even richer by having them concentrate on HIV treatment rather than an HIV cure.
* We believe that no woman is smart enough to be worth listening to, especially if there is a ballgame on.
* We believe liberals are pinheads whose whole agenda is to make black people as rich as WE are.
* We believe that the only reason American style democracy hasn't worked anywhere it's been tried in the Middle East is because the right people haven't been in charge.
* We think that a teenager's first flirtation with recreational drug use should be punished with the same sentence, or worse, than that given to hardened violent criminals.
* We think that an educational policy of 'survival of the fittest,' where all of America's school kids are held to such a high educational standard that some of them necessarily will fall by the wayside, is the ONLY instance where evolution applies. No room for compassion here.
* We think people need to be punished for good choices and rewarded for bad ones (i.e., Giving President Bush even MORE American kids to have killed in Iraq, via the 'surge,' rather than using every diplomatic tool at his disposal to end the war).
* We think that the only valid Amendments to the Constitution, the ones which should be left in there, are the ones which keep the status quo regarding who is rich, who is poor, who has rights and who doesn't, and any new ones which fit our narrow little evangelical Christian view of the world; but to suggest that we might find something useful in the writings of Karl Marx, or any other non-Capitalistic writer, is something so heretical that the suggester should be stoned.
* We believe the NRA is divinely inspired while the ACLU is the tool of the devil.
* We believe corporate profits are there solely for the company officers and major stockholders and any government spending, at all, is too much government spending and the American rich are overtaxed if they have to pay the same percentage of their earnings as the American poor pay.
* We think no deficits are caused by the billions and billions spent in Iraq.
* We view cross burnings on the lawn as justifiable expressions of rage over injustice and fail to see the similarities between a Iraqi insurgent and an American Minute Man.
* We think guns come to life in the middle of a burglary and know enough to shoot only the burglar and not the kids in the house.
* We think every American kid has a right to have his very own Uzi.

The Today Show has had people at the North Pole, South Pole and Equator for the last several days. They interviewed some of the scientist at McMurdo Station in the Anartic yesterday and they said the hole in the atmosphere supposedly casused by humans has been shrinking for a couple of years. Never have read anything on that. It was -60 at McMurdo yesterday.

Watched the History Channel last night do a story on sugar. In Brazil nearly all there fuel is largely ethanol made from sugar beets. They have gone from being nearly 100% dependant on foreign oil to being almost non dependant on foreign oil. Price of gas is something like $1.20 per gallon after being twice that five years ago. The U.S. is doing some work on sugar ethanol but could have been in the same spot as Brazil if we had dedicated our resources some years ago. It is a law in Brazil that all gas stations must sell ethanol gas and diesel.

Our ethanol plants are shutting down in the U.S. in some places from the lack of demand and from the lack of people buying autos that will burn the corn based ethanol. I guess we are selfish in that we want our big Humvees and large vans.

Louis: Thanks. I had seen the one on U-Tube on the History Channel. When I retired from the military some of my buddies went to work for the power companies and some went into the fire fighting end of the business which is risky at best. I looked into flying for the oil companies. This involves flying crews out into the gulf about 50-100 miles off shore in some really really bad weather on occasion. Usually they do not evacuate these oil platforms unless you have a very severe hurricane and by the time they make the decision to evacuate you have to fly in weather that a helicopter was not designed to fly in. I decided I would go into the business world and still work. I must confess I do miss flying and think I could strap into a Huey and have no problems flying even without a checklist. The pilots flying for the power company really have to have a steady hand to hold the helicopter in a dead still hover and not drag the lineman off the lines. I do not think you could pay me enough money to be a lineman. I have no idea what those guys make but it is not enough.
The great thing about helicopter flying is every day for most pilots is really different and brings new challenges. When they were testing the atomic bomb in the desert a couple of us were called upon to fly at a standoff distance and see what effect it had on us and the helicopter. Looking back I now know know why my hair is not as thick as I would hope. My buddy who was flying another helicopter with me from Wyoming crashed on the way to the test. Turns out he was the lucky one as he was not seriously injured.

According to Pascal's principle though, the upward force is unbalanced. This also denotes a lack of 'control' of forces ie; it is a static measurement of volume. If you dump a sailboat in the ocean the water is displaced around the boat according to this principle. I do understand that.

Buoyancy arises from the fact that fluid pressure increases with depth and from the fact that the increased pressure is exerted in all directions (Pascal's principle) so that there is an unbalanced upward force on the bottom of a submerged object.

Now what I wonder is what formula is used to calculate the prescription so that volume can be controlled as in a functional orthosis where the progression of forces is controlled by the contour and relative rigidity of the device.

How is that accomplished with a bladder filled with a viscous material without shaping such as channels?

As for the Archimedes' principle, how is it that the displaced fluid is measured?

The buoyant force on a submerged object is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced. This principle is useful for determining the volume and therefore the density of an irregularly shaped object by measuring its mass in air and its effective mass when submerged in water (density = 1 gram per cubic centimeter).

Each of these theorems is based on the penetration of a liquid body by a solid mass. This also assumes there is no resistance ie; the bottom of a container or ocean or the ground and shoe in this case.

My letter to my senator who signed the letter:

Dear Senator Mary Landrieu:

I noted that you signed a letter addressed to the CEO of Clear Channel Communication, Inc., Rush Limbaugh's employer in opposition to Rush Limbaugh's comments regarding phony soldiers. Your letter states that Rush's comments was an attacked our troops.

Your assertions and accusations are totally false as there was no attack on our troops, only the phony soldiers who the antiwar movement continue to clammer to give a platform to spout their false claims of war crimes. You and the other senators who signed this letter are on a smear campaign in an attempt to curtail 'free speech' that the radio commentators have.

I am not a listener of Rush Limbaugh; however, I find your letter caused me to do some online research and in doing so, I find what he said did not rise to any attack on our soldiers, but only to the phony soldiers. There have been many 'phony soldiers' in the antiwar movement to include the 'Vietnam Veterans Against The War' that put forth false war crime claims, i.e. testimony in the winter soldiers investigation (See pages 113, 131-134, 136, 144, 559, Stolen Valor, by B.G. Burkett and Glenna Whtley) used by Senator John Kerry in his testimony to the US Congress where in he called the soldiers murders, etc., thus causing the democrat party to force America to abandon South East Asia resulting in millions of lives being lost and our national image being severely tarnished around the world. The false testimony also tarnished those of us who served and died for our country. I see the same phenomena raising its ugly head again.

It is clear Limbaugh was speaking of the phony Army Ranger, Macbeth, who was recently convicted of being a phony soldier and claimed many war crimes.

The democrat party had no problem in attacking one of our Generals and that backfired, now the party is attempting to making up a false allegation to divert or to attempt to obtain cover for that position. There is no comparison with what the democrats did with regard to Moveon.org's attack and what Limbaugh stated.

I urge you to disavow your attach on Mr. Limbaugh in this regard, actually, you should be applauding him for his attack on the phony soldiers. I suggest you do some goggle searches for Phony Soldiers, Wannabes online and you will find several websites that exposing these individuals, many claiming false war crimes. Your signature on the letter only reflects your true ignorance of what is going on within the antiwar movement and an embarrassment to the citizens of Louisiana.

Senate Democrats Condemn Limbaugh's Attack On Our Troops




Washington, DC—Senate Democrats today sent the following letter to Mark P. Mays, CEO of Clear Channel Communications, calling on him to publicly repudiate Rush Limbaugh’s characterization of troops who speak out against the Iraq war as “phony soldiers.” Despite recent Republican comments condemning verbal attacks on our troops, when given the opportunity to join us in signing this letter, not a single one did so.

Below is the text of the letter:

October 2, 2007

Mr. Mark P. Mays
CEO, Clear Channel Communications Inc.
200 East Basse Road
San Antonio, TX 78209

Dear Mr. Mays,

At the time we sign this letter, 3,808 American soldiers have been killed in Iraq, and another 28,009 have been wounded. 160,000 others awoke this morning on foreign sand, far from home, to face the danger and uncertainty of another day at war.

Although Americans of goodwill debate the merits of this war, we can all agree that those who serve with such great courage deserve our deepest respect and gratitude. That is why Rush Limbaugh’s recent characterization of troops who oppose the war as “phony soldiers” is such an outrage.

Our troops are fighting and dying to bring to others the freedoms that many take for granted. It is unconscionable that Mr. Limbaugh would criticize them for exercising the fundamentally American right to free speech. Mr. Limbaugh has made outrageous remarks before, but this affront to our soldiers is beyond the pale.

The military, like any community within the United States, includes members both for and against the war. Senior generals, such as General John Batiste and Paul Eaton, have come out against the war while others have publicly supported it. A December 2006 poll conducted by the Military Times found just 35 percent of service members approved of President Bush’s handling of the war in Iraq, compared to 42 percent who disapproved. From this figure alone, it is clear that Mr. Limbaugh’s insult is directed at thousands of American service members.

Active and retired members of our armed forces have a unique perspective on the war and offer a valuable contribution to our national debate. In August, seven soldiers wrote an op-ed expressing their concern with the current strategy in Iraq. Tragically, since then, two of those seven soldiers have made the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq.

Thousands of active troops and veterans were subjected to Mr. Limbaugh’s unpatriotic and indefensible comments on your broadcast. We trust you will agree that not a single one of our sons, daughters, neighbors and friends serving overseas is a “phony soldier.” We call on you to publicly repudiate these comments that call into question their service and sacrifice and to ask Mr. Limbaugh to apologize for his comments.

Re: Subluxed peroneal tendon. View Thread
Posted by Dr. DSW on 9/29/07 at 16:53

This is a question you MUST ask the surgeon, since surgery for a subluxed or subluxing peroneal tendon can vary greatly. Sometimes the surgery involves simply relocating the tendon and the tendon sheath and 'tacking' it down, and sometimes it requires an osteotomy/cutting of the bone to create a new groove or channel for the tendon to ride in, to prevent re-subluxation. There are many variations on this type of surgery, and healing will be dependent on the severity of the problem and the actual procedure performed.

I 'assume' you have had an MRI performed, so you must ask your surgeon for his/her opinion regarding the post operative expectations.

I fear that the extreeme extent of the climate alarmists will drive some of us away from even considering that significant adjustments in human behavior might be merited. Natural forces have existed long before man that have drastically changed the climate. New into the equation is modern industrialized man that could add to an existing natural pendulum swing in a manner not experienced before.

I saw a documentary on the 'year without a summer' 1816 on the history channel. Wouldn't you know it some PHD had to include the burgeoning industrial revolution as a cause. Couldn't leave the volcanic activity as the issue, oh no,had to pile on and in my mind detract from credible arguements regarding mans impact on climate.

VCR? What is that? I thought that went out with Betamax (I had one). Nothing beats Direct TV Recorder/receiver with Tivo and a 250GB Hard Drive to schedule events to be recorded up to two weeks in advance. That is about 40 hours of recordings you can store.Pause any live event when you want to and go get your beer or milk and come back and resume watching where you paused. Starting in September there will be over 150 HD channels. I can watch 6 live NFL games all at once on one screen. Does not get any better than that. Given a choice of Direct TV and NFL or a wife I would have to think about that????

Re: How to decrease TTS pain View Thread
Posted by Dr. Wedemeyer on 7/13/07 at 14:27

Linda they were probably two different types of e-stim. TENS is two pads/channel so you would have had to have been hooked up to 2 TENS units for the treatment you describe. That sounds like IFC (Interferential Current) which is the only true 4 pad/channel e-stim and many machines have two channels hence 8 pads/1 machine.

IFC is much more effective for inflammation and pain control than TENS alone but the treatment duration is shorter, where a TENS can be worn around the clock. IFC also has a greater range of available treatment frequencies for specific conditions and are much more costly.

Re: DRX9000 View Thread
Posted by David W. on 7/06/07 at 14:09

I have read all the posts on this thread and want to provide correct information concerning the DRX9000.

First things First:

If you are wondering if you qualify for decompression treatment the following is a list of basic Inclusion and Exclusion criteria so you may make the right decision since not everyone qualifies for the DRX treatment.

Inclusion Criteria:

Pain due to herniated and bulging lumbar discs that is more than four weeks old
Recurrent pain from a failed back surgery that is more than six months old.
Persistent pain from degenerated disc not responding to four weeks of therapy.
Patients available for four weeks of treatment protocol.
Patient at least 18 years of age.

Exclusion Criteria:

Appliances such as pedicle screws and rods
Pregnancy
Prior lumbar fusion less than six months old
Metastatic cancer
Severe osteoporosis
Spondylolisthesis (unstable)
Compression fracture of lumbar spine below L-1 (recent).
Pars defect
Pathologic aortic aneurysm.
Pelvic or abdominal cancer
Disc space infections
Severe peripheral neuropathy
Hemiplegia, paraplegia, or cognitive dysfunction.

Ok so you've read the list and determined that you can be included...

Proper diagnostics play a vital role in determining if a patient is a candidate for care with nonsurigcal spinal decompression or should seek a consult from a surgeon. Diagnostics can include orthopedic examination, Xray, MRI, CT scan, as well as neurological examination which may include a NCV and EMG study.

So you get the exam and the doctor determines yours is a case he/she is willing to accept. How long does it take to see results?

Most patients report a reduction in pain after the first few sessions. Typically, improvement is obtained by the second week of treatment. In our clinics we typically see a 20-50% reduction by the end of the second week. We do a daily consult with each patient to monitor progress.

How long does it take to complete DRX 9000 treatment and what is involved with a complete treatment?
6 weeks. Sessions times are 26 minutes on DRX and 15 minutes of ice and IFC. 5x a week for 2 weeks, then 3x a week for 2 weeks, then 2x a week for 2 weeks. After 20 decompression sessions patients begin physical therapy. We find that after 20 sessions of decompression therapy the disc and ligaments will reach their maximum state of improvement with decompression from that point on specific physical therapy exercises will address other musculoskeletal disorders.the length of physical therapy care will depend on many factors. Again a proper evaluation will be required.

Are there any side effects to the treatment?

Most patients do not experience any side effects. Though, there have been some mild cases of muscle spasm for a short period of time which may increase pain levels. We are a medical rehab clinic and are able to deal with these issues swiftly with the proper diagnostics and pain management protocols.

As with any therapy...if you do experience an increase in pain report that to the doctor right away as treatment may need to be altered accordingly, however do not discontinue care altogehter. Many of these problems have taken years to develop as such it may be a good idea to give them time to mend correctly. If after 2 weeks of care you do not see a 20-50% reduction and alterations to the care plan are made and you still have pain you may want to consult your primary for pain management while continuing care or seek a pain management doctor while continuing care.

Keep in mind the protocol calls for an anti inflammotory drug the night before treatment and an hour before. Ice packs should be used outside the office - 15 minutes on the effected area 3-4 times a day for the first few weeks to reduce inflammation.


What is the difference between the DRX9000 and the VAX-D?
The DRX is three generations past the initial VAX-D table developed years ago. Actually, the former North American distributor of VAX-D is the present manufacturer of DRX who had requested upgrades to the VAX-D unit but was refused, which explains why the VAX-D hasn’t changed in twenty years. So he and other decompression spinal practitioners brainstormed the problems with VAX-D, and with the help of many engineers, the DRX 9000 unit was developed just a few years ago.

The most obvious differences between the DRX9000 and the VAX-D would be their success rate and the comfort levels while a patient is being treated. Below are some side by side comparisons.

DRX9000

Patient lays on back (supine)
Harnesses prevent any stress to the shoulders or arms.
The amount of decompression can be targeted to the specific disc level by varying the angle of traction.

60-100% Success Rate - Some patients do achieve complete freedom from pain...they are the exception...not the rule. The vast majority of patients achieve a 70-90% success rate. Our most senior patient was 94 years old - he had the 60%.

VAX-D

'Up To a 72%' Success Rate
Patient lies face down (prone) which can be very uncomfortable
Required patients had to hold on with their hands causing severe shoulder/arm problems
Nonspecific for disc levels with its straight-line traction
Note: I've had to fix VAX-D patients that had failed VAX-D - they did recover with our program.

As far as the cost of not getting the care performed...lost time from work, enjoyment of life, etc...Decompression is an elective procedure no matter what anyone says on this thread. I have sat face to face with and had phone converstaions with insurance company representatives in our state and can assure you it is an elective procedure. As is Lasix for eyes, Gastric Bypass for weight loss, certain types of dental procedures and about 30 other medical procedures that are now termed elective...why? More profit for insurnace companies. Don't believe it? Watch Michael Moores new movie he spells it out really well...I can't stand him or the garbage movies he puts out, but he makes a good case for just what the insurance companies really stand for...note: it's not you.

The bottom line is this: A doctor who gives a disc patient hope and can realistically provide a 60-100% chance for recovery should be honored and revered. A woman just yesterday had tears of joy when I told her we would accept her case. She had been to 5 specialists who all told her to live with it! We actually helped her on her first session! I have found over my last ten years of practice that most negative people will always be suspect and negative and will always be down on what they are not up on. For the people that want a real chance to live a more normal life again I encourage you to find a provider in your area that will accept your case.

If the cost of care is a patients 'primary concern' and the miss the primary benefit of a 60-100% success rate they obviously missed the big picture and I hate to say it, but they do not value their own life enough...as the solution is right in front of them. Often these are the same people who tell everyone they know how bad off they are yet these same people drive off in a fancy new car, drink starbucks on a daily basis, tan, have cable tv with every concieable channel known to man, do additions to their house or spend their money on some other intangiable that can be replaced instead of taking care of their body....of which they only have one..its insanity and is so beyond me I dont get it. You can not replace your spine...if you have a disc problem and are lucky enough to discover a clinic that will provde non surgical spinal decompression and therapy...jump on it. Get your life back!!!

If the stock doesn't jump 10% monday, the stock market doesn't know it's butt from a hole in the ground. The ATT network has at least doubled in speed in the last two months, up to 200 kbps in places over the previous 40 kbps. I'm only in for 5% of my net worth. They're saying 10M in sales next year and i think they're pulling everyone's leg by understating it. The estimate is that they'll sale 1M this WEEK. Fast mnoney right now has spent 50% of their program talking about the phone, and yet they're saying it's a no-buy. It's the best show on, and they're still being moronic.

Marie:

The theory behind outsourcing appears flawed to me. It is based on a continual effort to cut costs by outsourcing to countries like China and India where both skilled labor and professional services respectively can be found at deep discounts. The discounted Chinese labor in maintained, in part, by artificially established exchanged rates as the Chinese government will not let the yuan float against the dollar. I have to wonder if some of our prosperity is illusory as it is based what appears to be availability of cheap goods to a consumer driven economy. It seems like such a cycle need have an endpoint which does not appear favorable. I recently watched a show about the history of battle tanks on the Military Channel where the commentator made the statement that it was the US auto industry that won WW2 due to its enormous size and ability to convert from civilian to military production quickly. Our tanks may not have been better than the German tanks but we were able to overwhelm them with numbers. Have we not ceded that ability to China?

Hi Julie

With 15 years of practice, you clearly understand and are aware of all I said. Good! I won't worry about you any more.

Doing what you think is helpful and useful, and finding that it has caused you problems IS a hard lesson. But it's important, as you say. I've had more experiences of that nature than I care to count - but all such experiences are useful because we learn so much from them. This one has taught you to listen to your body more. I'm in the fortunate position of being able to channel what I learn from my errors and experiences into my teaching - very useful!

I can understand why you wanted to achieve full lotus, and why you thought you could. But it's a very different kettle of fish from half lotus, as you discovered. I've never liked half lotus - I think it's essentially unbalanced. Perhaps you should try Siddhasana, in which the upper foot is tucked into the fold between the opposite thigh and calf. It's easier on the hips, feet, and ankles than half lotus, in which the upper foot rests on the opposite thigh, and some authorities consider it the best posture for meditation. Another alternative is to sit with the legs simply folded, one heel in front of the other/

In all these postures, both knees should rest on the floor, so do use a block or two for elevation if you need it.

I'm so glad to know that the foot yoga exercises have been helpful.

Take care,

Julie

North Korea View Thread
Posted by john h on 5/02/07 at 12:20

I wonder if any of you saw a program which I think was on the History Channel this past week. A lady who was either an English woman or American and a photographer were allowed into North Korea. Each was assigned what is called a 'minder' who had to approve all questions and approve of what was filmed. The purpose of this was to film an English or American Doctor who had come to restore the vision of one thousand people in 1-2 weeks. I was totally amazed at just how the people of North Korea view their leader. He is looked upon as something like Jesus Christ is to Christians. They refer always to him as the Great Leader, Blessed Leader, etc. It seems to come from the heart. In some of the homes of the common people only pictures of the Great Leader were on the wall. His statues and pictures were everywhere. After the Doctor had finished his one thousand eye operations all the patients were gathered in a great hall and they proceeded to take off the bandages one by one and the patients could see from one eye or both for the first time in many cases. The patients would run immediately to a large picture on the wall and thank the Great Leader as though he were a God and he alone caused their eye sight to be recovered. The people seemed to be possessed even when standing before a picture of the man. It was absolutely mind boggling to view. Clearly these people were not faking it they truly look upon this man as a God. If you speak some word about him that is not approved you and all of your relatives are sent to a work camp for life. No one ever returns. The Great Leader himself lives in western luxury with some 20+ limos and at one time was the largest importer in the world of some special wine. The people very much live on the verge of starvation but remain completely subservient to him and contribute all things good to him. After returning to South Korea they interviewed one of the very few to ever escape the North. He had been a prison guard and knew how to deactivate some electrical fence. His stories were absolutely unbelievable. North Korea has a large border with China and thousands try and escape into China or starve to death. Children were observed picking a grain of corn out of cow dung to eat. China often sends them back to certain death. I doubt Julius Caesar had the power of the Great Leader and certainly not the love shown in this documentary. North Korea is clearly a place to fear very much with missiles and a nuclear bomb. Japan and South Korea want and in my view should have a nuclear capability with this guy in charge. He lives in a world we could hardly imagine and as far as I know has not ever left the north. A really scary place.

I thought this would give all those in pain something to keep their minds off of it for 2 hours.

A couple of weeks ago one of the posters said how his uncle was involved running the Mormons out of Illinois. They were also run out of Ohio and Missouri (the governor issued an extermination order to destroy every man, woman and child that was a Mormon).

I doubt that anything productive will come out of Pelosi's trip nor will it cause any problems. The Democrats routinely engage in the same partisan acrimony as the GOP. So if you want to be fair in raising accusations of hypocrisy, direct criticism to the Democrats too.

Members of Congress routinely go on 'fact finding missions' in foreign countries. They do not perform an official diplomatic function as that is left to the Executive branch. I really cannot find fault with Pelosi as she simply is doing what so many others in the Legislative Branch have done. Of course, one can criticize the choice of countries as Syria is a major promoter of terrorism ruled by a brutal dictator and is, in fact, waging a de facto war against the US. As far as I know we still retain diplomatic relations with Syria so she is visiting a country which we still appear to desire to have open channels of communication with. Iran is another story.

Re: MUF- Neurowrap View Thread
Posted by Mom444 on 3/29/07 at 21:13

My daughter, who was just three, had neurosurgery last July to remove scar tissue and a neuroma from her peroneal nerve. (She has foot drop.) The surgeon mentioned that he used the Neurawrap on her.

She had an MRI last week an the surgeon called today all concerned because he said that the MRI showed that her nerve looked 'thick.' He wasn't sure what to make of it, he thought that it could be a sign of something else wrong with the nerve or it could have been linked to the use of the Neurawrap. I asked him if the material should have been absorbed into the body by now and he thought the answer was yes. But now I see that this material is very, very new and I wonder just how much experience surgeons have with it.

What I want to know is, could it be possible that eight months after she had the surgery the 'thickness' on the MRI may be the Neurawrap still being there? The surgeon even wondered if the wrap had maybe created a 'channel' around the nerve.

I'm very concered and confused. My daugher meanwhile has had some nerve recover but different doctors speculate that she maybe should have had more by now.

African wild dog packs are some of the most coordinated predators living. They can bring down much larger and more dangerous animals using their pack mentality.

I once had a pack of wild Georgia Pigs attack me. I was fishing in a swampy area. I could hear pigs rooting in the underbrush on the land but hey wild pigs? how serious is that? Me and my buddy decided to go to shore to see what was going on. As we approached shore about 5 very skinny and very fast pigs appeared and seemed to be awaiting our arrival. About 15 feet from shore they all jumped in the water and headed our way. They first took our stringer of fish which was in the water and were trying to get in the boat with us. Looking at their teeth/tusk I decided they were not our friends. We beat them off with our oars and started up the motor and got out of Dodge. Pigs will eat rattle snakes.

John please refer to me with the new nick I am using. There is already a Dr. David (Wander DPM) who has been at this board or much longer and it has confused some of the posters to have two (Dr. David's), thus I have changed to my real name. Also there will be less confusion as to my area of practice.

The problem with pad placement is that electrical stimulation is not well tolerated at the extremities (feet or hands)due to them being the site of your nerve endings, hence the increase sensation at these sites (it sure helps when trying to feel around for a pencil etc...).

TENS is a two pad configuration and yes some have two channels X2 pads but it is still TENS, which is primarily dispensed for pain relief only. When I fit patients with an Analgesic sock the second pad is affixed to a remote location (usually the shoulder) to provide a buffer to this sensitization of these regions. This sock as a 2 pad config makes for comfortable e-stim. I am experimenting with IFC (Interferential current) and hope Analgesic will offer a 4 pad IFC and sock unit for the foot in the future. It is a much more tolerable current and you can set IFC more specifically for acute vs. chronic pain, inflammation, Russian Stim (Pure 80Hz muscle stim for atrophy 2 pads) etc.

EMPI makes a great unit and I have used them in the past, I just prefer to let them (Analgesic)haggle with the insurers and payment; I do not sell them to patients. There are so many companies that make these now, especially prior to workers compensation reform in calif where it seemed everyone was pushing them. They do have a value but they are not a panacea, especially for PF.

I do not advocate anyone acquiring or using any of these units without it being prescribed and with supervision as there are relative indications and contraindications to their use. Any good PT knows the protocols well and I am sure could help you find what I have discussed, if not they can email me and I will provide them the info.

I had horrid arch pain after long bike rides from a new pair of Nike carbon sole shoes and used to crawl to my office after a ride to soak my feet in an ultrasound bath followed by e-stim with the sock. I always felt much better afterwards but I was finding I could be sore for a full day after. I eventually started experimenting with orthotics and various posts, materials and shoes.

I can tell you that the right fit and the properly constructed orthotic from a mold can significantly increase your time in the saddle and comfort in any weight-bearing or pedaling sport or activity.

Likewise I would propose the same is true for many PF sufferers and the providers here would probably tell you if you had utilized them and their colleagues from the start in assessing your needs maybe there would be less need for treatment and a lot less suffering from all foot related complaints.

Xerxes had well over 100,000 troops facing a Greek City State. Outnumbered at least 20-1. What turned the tide was the Greek navy caught Xerxes navy in a trap in some narrow channels and destroyed so many of his troop carrying ships he had to withdraw or he would not have had a navy to withdraw him and would have no supply lines. The Greeks would surely been defeated had not the Navy did what they did and Persia would have ruled Greece and probably moved further west to who knows where. This was around 400 BC and this would have meant there would be no philosopy of government called Democracy (one vote one man) develop.

Terry Schiavo's brother endorses Brownback View Thread

Terri Schiavo's brother thanks Brownback for his efforts to protect all human life

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – U.S. Senator Sam Brownback received an endorsement today from Bobby Schindler, the brother of the late Terri Schiavo. Schiavo died nearly two years ago from starvation and dehydration after a court mandated the removal of her feeding tube, sparking a nationwide bipartisan effort to save her life.

My family will never forget Sam Brownback’s valiant efforts to save my sister’s life, said Schindler. Sam Brownback is the pro-life conservative we can trust to stand for all life, regardless of political calculations.

This endorsement comes one day after Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney stated his opposition to the efforts of Florida Governor Jeb Bush and the Florida legislature to save Terri from her court-ordered starvation and dehydration: 'I think it's probably best to leave these kinds of matters in the hands of the courts,' Romney said yesterday to Bay News Channel 9 in Florida.

Mitt Romney’s alleged pro-life conversion evidently does not to apply to all human life, said Schindler. The pro-life movement needs a leader we can trust in 2008 and I know Sam Brownback is that leader.

In 2005, Brownback joined the family of Terri Schiavo to launch the Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to ensuring the rights of disabled, elderly, and vulnerable citizens against care-rationing, euthanasia, and medical killing.

Brownback commented, 'Terri's plight highlighted the core question about the protection of human life: does the dignity with which we treat individuals depend on their physical or mental status as human beings? If a person's dignity depends only on his or her physical status, then life and death decisions about the most vulnerable among us become relative matters to be determined by doctors, judges, lawyers, and legislatures. Once we go down the path of valuing some lives more than others, of saying that people with disabilities don't have the same dignity and right to life as others, there are very few means not justified by the sinister end of a disability-free society. The way a society treats individuals with disabilities is a measure of the greatness of that society.'

Re: Why? View Thread

Ralph ...

One reason for the approach made by many professionals is the standardization practices of many orthotic labs. Very few podiatrists make their own custom devices, and rely upon the skills of many very fine outside labs. The results for most patients with these devices is usually very good; however, as we all know there are exceptions.

Although many script forms for labs are fairly extensive in the number and types of modifications available, many do not offer specific, detailed additions. Some may not offer particular types of accommodative additions (medial plantar channels, as an example). Most differ in how they modify the cast in the fashioning of the orthotic mold. The variables are nearly infinite.

Before we even cast a patient we (meaning myself and the 4 doctors in the group where I am employed) determine who is best qualified to construct a device which will best meet the individual patient's needs. The vast majority of casts are sent to one of four labs we use on a regular basis, again depending on that particular lab's specialty. Very special cases are made on our premises. This helps us adhere to a high quality standard.

Does every practice operate in this fashion? Of course not. And yes, if a professional of any discipline feels they are not best qualified to treat the patient, they should refer him/her elsewhere. The goal is a positive outcome for the patient. I would like to feel that all foot professionals make that a priority.

Odd reason for tarsal tunnel View Thread
Posted by Kara on 2/21/07 at 00:34

I was diagnosed with TTS around 4 years ago. I had 2 surgeries, the most recent one this last June. Things were a little better, but all the normal TTS treatments did not work.

I started seeing a holistic medicine doctor in October of this last year and we were working on trying to get a little relief in my foot and some other problems. All of the other problems cleared up, but my foot was still hurting. About a month ago, we tried acupuncture and had the first 2 days of complete relief of symptoms since the whole thing started.

Now, my holistic doctor and I have stumbled across something very interesting. We found that my kidneys are "blocked." Ever since then, we have been trying some different combinations of herbs and they seem to be working. I am finally getting some relief of the symptoms. Who would have ever thought that my kidneys were the source of the problem? She said that all of the times I took antibiotics to get rid of strep throat when I was younger only suppressed the infection into my kidneys and my kidneys suppressed it into my foot. (For those of you not familiar with Chinese medicine, your kidney channel runs right through the tarsal tunnel area.) A few months before my foot pain started, I had a horrible lower back ache. The doctor I saw for that thought that I had just thrown my back out, but it could be a kidney problem too. After a test, it was ruled to just be a back ache and I was given some muscle relaxers. If I had only known then what I know now, my life would have been really different.

So, for all of you people who don't know how they got TTS and normal treatments have not worked, might want to ask your doctor about possible kidney problems. A normal doctor might not diagnose it, so find a good holistic medincine doctor and ask some questions. It never hurts to try another avenue if it could relieve the hell of TTS.

Hi,

Let's see where to start. I just had my tarsal release on 1/26. The only complication I have had so far is a throbbing pain (almost like a charlie horse) in my left calf. I just got back from my doctor and he said I'm healing up fine. This surgery is not a guarantee though. I would try everthing I could think of before doing it. The pain I am experiencing is from the calf area, not the surgery itself. He put me on valium to relieve some of the pain. I would ask your doctor about Cymbalta. It's a great medication. Start with the 30 mg for a week than go to the 60mg. This way your body gets used to it without making you feel loopy. First time I tried it, I started with the 60 mg and I went through the roof. But now I drive and everything, so it takes away the burning and creepy crawlies. My plantar fascia release failed due to an inexperienced foot doctor. If this is a recommendation for you, please, for your on sake, check the doctor out thoroughly and ask if there are other options. My pain is worse since I actually had the release than before. As far as the TENS unit, it is a little unit that you actually clip on to your waist or belt buckle. It's very small. The one I have is made by EMPI. It's long name is a Dual Channel Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator. It's not a cure, but it sure does help ease the pain and you can where it practially anywhere. You just place the electrode patches in the specific area for your pain, hook up the little electrodes, and away it goes. You can adjust the settings on the unit and how intense you want them, too. I think of it as a mini-massage without the Spa prices. I remember when I first started with all of this pain, that a lady at PT actually massaged my foot and did a plantar release (like pulled it)....It felt great. As for having another baby.....Oh, I bet you'll find something that helps you. I too, think about having another one, but at age 36 and all of the pain I have....I think it's too late....but I'll root for you. Let me know how you turn out at PT and reply when you can. I wish you the best of luck as well. But just remember, you're not alone in this fight. We're all here for each other....on the brighter side....I got my first cane today......would rather have gotten a candy cane, but at least I can get around a little bit better. Take care and hope to hear from you soon. Michelle

Hi Ralph,

How's the new computer running? Did your son get your speaking program running for you yet?

How have you been? Any good news about progress being made at PT? When is you next doctor's visit. I know that you had one the same day I had mine. Did your doc change anything? I see my doc in 1 month again.

I still have not noticed a change with the cymbalta yet. Today is the first day that I go to the higher dose for the next 3 weeks or I should say until I see my PM. Then he is going to change it a higer dose. The Duragesic Patch seems to be better than the Fentenyl patch. I do change them every 48 hours but it does not last the 48 hours. It seem's to only last about a day and a 1/2. After it wears off it takes a few hours for it to start to work again after I change it. I have been trying to wear my Lidoderm at night time to see if it would help with the pain at night, but as you can see it's about 3:30am and I'm still up. So, so much for that idea. I hope I will get at least 2 or 3 hours of sleep tonight or should I say this morning.

Well, as I said my daughter went to school this week and I did not think we could go a whole week without her missing at least one day. She missed school on Thursday becasue she has an allergy to Dairy and she cooked in School on Wednesday and she was not thinking and between her school lunch and what she ate in her cooking class it was way to much dariy. So, she was up sick throwing up with a stomach ache Wednesday night. So, that is why she missed school. She was fine by mid day to late afternoon. She went to school on friday. She still has about 2 more weeks of antibiotic's to go. She still has a slight cough and her ears are much better. I'm kinda worried about when she is done with these antiboitic's. If she gets sick again, I think we will take your advice and take her to a specialest. We are not going to mess around with this any longer.

Now, I just hope my ankle/leg will calm down enough so I can start to concentrate on things where I left off at. I had made a few phone calls but that has been it.

I'm still trying to find and read as much information as I can. I have found out that there are a lot of different opinions out about procedures that are being done. The hard thing is like the Oxygen Chamber. When you see that is has helped people but when you discuss it with your doctor and he just kinda blows you off about and says there is just not enough reseach about it. I understand that but I think if it might be an option for people don't you think it would be wise if they start to look into it? I wish that there were some way to find out how that girl on the Discovery Channel is doing now. They need to do a follow up show.

Anyway, I'm going to try and get some sleep. I hope you are doing well and making progress with your stairs!!

I will chat soon

In addition to what Dr Wander stated, it's important to do something with excess sweat from the foot as it accumulates. Many get benefit from wearing the proper socks (like CoolMax or performance wools - Bridgedale, Smartwool, etc.).

Just so you know, there are already a few brands which have patented technologies for increasing air flow to cool the foot. Usually they are channels molded into the soles of the shoes which are activated by pressures during the walking gait. Sort of like a bellows expels air, so do these shoes. Current examples can be found with Shoe Fly, made in Italy. A Google search ought to bring you examples from other brands, as well.

Re: Hakomed Horizontal Therapy website for patients View Thread

It has nothing to do with your spatial position. Horizontal Therapy uses the FM Frequencies, and goes where TENS units cannot go. TENS are for short term pain relief and utilize the AM frequency, waves that go up and down. The FM frequency goes Horizontal.

As an example, when I go to the Las Vegas Airport (do you know 38 million people visit Vegas every year and a flight goes out every 90 seconds?) there is a rather long tunnel I go through. When I'm listening to my AM talk stations, the sound is cut off as soon as I enter, since those waves go up and down. Whereas, when I turn to the FM frequency channel, (country - not the twangy country - but my most favorite are Greg's songs on CD's) then there is still no problem with the reception, because those waves still go through the tunnel sideways.

Hope needs Horizontal Therapy. Hope, wasn't that you that was going to start that???? The HT is for LONG TERM pain relief without side effects.

The machine is somthing you get treated for at a doctor's office, but if patients want one they're pretty pricey. You could get just the top without the VASOPulse, the vacuum electrodes (which is really good for swelling, edema, sprains) and the Electrical only is about 2/3rds the total price. You would need a doctor's script though. We do have a demo unit with a discount though.

I will read Carter's book first and decide for myself. Have you read the book? Carter may have over stepped his bounds on Israel but my objection to your rants on the topic actually have nothing to do with whether I agree with Carter or not but simply that you are not presenting both sides of the story. I am not a fan of Carter. I did not vote for him. But I am interested in honest dialog that speaks to both Israel and Palestine. So I will share other points of view. Not necessarily because I agree with them but because I am an objective person. Israel is an ally that I respect but they, like us, have made mistakes. Presenting both points of view is essential to the discussion. I welcome honest disagreement for or against the book in the end I will probably read the book and judge for myself if it is anti-zionist or simply an objective observation of the Middle East.

http://www.thenation.com/doc/20070108/hedges
The enforced segregation, abject humiliation and spiraling Israeli violence against Palestinians have been detailed in the Israeli and European press and, with remarkable consistency, by all the major human rights organizations. The assault against Carter, rather, says more about the failings of the American media--which have largely let Israel hawks heap calumny on Carter's book. It exposes the indifference of the Bush Administration and the Democratic leadership to the rule of law and basic human rights, the timidity of our intellectual class and the moral bankruptcy of institutions that claim to speak for American Jews and the Jewish state.

Almost 100 students, faculty, and alumni of Brandeis University have signed a petition calling for campus officials to bring President Jimmy Carter to Waltham to discuss his controversial new book about Israel without requiring him to debate.

http://www.palestinechronicle.com/story-122706232907.htm
Jimmy Carter is no anti-Semite. He belongs to a prominent group of American presidents who made more important contributions toward the advancement of the Zionist project than the Zionists themselves. Apart from Woodrow Wilson who helped deliver the Balfour declaration, Harry Truman who recognized the State of Israel ten minutes after it was created and Bill Clinton who ushered the Oslo accords, no other US president has served Israel more. Lest it be forgotten, it was Carter who engineered the 1978 Camp David Accords that neutralised Egypt in the Middle East and tipped the regional balance of power in Israel’s favour.

Two years prior, during the 1976 presidential campaign Carter told a gathering at the Synagogue of Elizabeth in New Jersey, “I honour the same God as you. We (Baptists) study the same Bible as you”. And as such, he continued, “The survival of Israel does not come down to politics. It is a moral duty.”

Jimmy Carter has a bull's-eye on his back. Critics are taking shots. But that's OK, the former president said, because the rising volleys aimed at him are boosting sales of his latest book, Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid.

Your recent cartoon of former President Carter is, sadly, part of a national trend in which invective and outright meanness are becoming the replacements for thoughtful criticism.

http://www.nwitimes.com/articles/2006/12/21/entertainment/entertainment/431af32bbbc1504a86257244006fe8c0.txt
All this for a former president whose Nobel Peace Prize was won forging the historic peace agreement between Israel and Egypt in 1979. Carter said he expected the response because the United States is one of the few nations in the world where debate over Israel's role in the Palestinian dispute is stifled.

"There is no discussion or debate in this country about very sensitive issues in the Middle East that are crucial for ultimate peace for Israel -- within the news media or within political circles -- if that discussion implies a criticism of Israel," Carter said.

http://www.thebookstandard.com/bookstandard/news/author/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1003522874&imw=Y
“We discussed the word ‘apartheid,’ which I defined as the forced segregation of two peoples living in the same land, with one of them dominating and persecuting the other,” Carter wrote in the letter, which can be found on the Carter Center website. “The book was about conditions and events in the Palestinian territories and not in Israel, where a democracy exists with all the freedoms we enjoy in our country and Israeli Jews and Arabs are legally guaranteed the same rights as citizens.”

Char,

I can relate to being "bored out of my mind." I got REALLY sick of TV. It's amazing how you can have 300 channels and can't find anything to watch. :)

By the time you read this, I'm sure you'll be doing much better. Difference between days 2 and 3 is like night and day. That said, hang in there with the foot elevation and the ice. It will make a huge difference in a few days.

Take care.

Dr. Rob,
I have had a c.t.,m.r.i. and myelogram, these were tests requested by my first neurologist, he referred me to the big teaching hospital in Portland. I was seen in their neuromuscular clinic 4 times during the end of August and the first 2 weeks of Sept. the neurologist referred me to neurosurgery. He was worried due to the fact that the impingment was visable in the myelogram. It seem at this point I was lost in channels as the 3rd week with no contact was reached I began calling them. Finally at the end of last month the neurosurgery scheduler finally told me my referral has expired. I kept calling and my P.C. P's office manager jumped thru all the hoops and got everything taken care of, she even gave me the Dr.s name. That was 2 weeks ago, and I have called 2 times. Last friday I called and the receptionist said that they had all the paperwork and I should be getting a call to schedule. She transferred me to the doctors voice mail and I left a message. No call today, I am scheduled for tts release surgery on dec.14. I am starting to worry that I will not be able to drive the 4 hours to the big hospital. Thank you for listening. kconnell

The push is not to allow felons to vote but to allow ex-felons to vote. It varies state to state. In some states ex-felons are allowed to vote after their sentence and in other states they are banned for life.

I believe Kentucky is pushing for an amendment to allow ex-felons to vote.
http://www.kentucky.com/mld/kentucky/news/state/15917499.htm?source=rss&channel=kentucky_state

Personally I feel voting rights is an important part of our democracy. Denying someone the right to vote may not be in the best interest of our nation. I do advocate returning an ex-felon's voting rights 5 years after they have served their time and proved themselves to be a contributing member of our society. That means holding a full time job or attending college full time & absolutely no arrests or traffic tickets. They must be model citizens in my book. As we all know many ex-convicts do not become productive members of society and are often sent back to prison within the first year of release. So don't get your panties in a bunch over this. Trust me they do not make up a large majority of voters.

Hi Steve P. Your post hit me hard. I usually joke around and try to lighten things up where I can. But not now. Please, do not find a doctor that will amputate. They are out there. Avoid them. I to seriously thought about it. Either injuring myself to make it happen or paying a Dr to do it. I deal with major pain due to bi-lateral tarsal tunnel syndrome (16 years+.) It has crossed my mind. The Discover Channel did a show on a man, dealing with chronic pain, that did have his feet amputated. Talk about an in-your-face wake up call. What he endured, before, during & after....no, no, no. I will never think about amputation again. Call the Discovery Channel and get a copy of that show. You need it. You'll learn to deal with the pain and not think in those extreme terms again. Good luck. Linda

Re: Question for Scotty R. View Thread
Posted by R. Parker on 10/10/06 at 19:38

I really don't think it is that there is such pressing need for questions by the patient regarding other diagnoses and tests, as any good diagnostician digests the information which you tell him/her about your problem, and along with his/her general history queries and initial examination forms what is know as the differential diagnosis. These are all the conditions which come to mind which may fit the general description and impression which he/she has already formed. Then the process of elimination is begun, in which the doctor poses targeted and specific questions to the patient, and makes tests and assessments which are intended to separate the possibles from the impossibles, then the like-lies from the unlike-lies. And finally, the diagnosis which survives this "test by fire" will hopefully be the real diagnosis on which effective treatment can then be based.

The weakest link in this whole process is often the patient, especially those who come to the doctor with a predetermined judgment, which may have been supplied by another doctor. But your current doctor needs to know what was the thinking and treatment approach of your previous doctor, as it may not only help the diagnostic process, but will also make him/her aware of what has been tried and has failed.

The patient's job is to come prepared to offer a clear description and discussion of the problem as it effects him/her . . . (who would know better), and one precise enough so that he/she need not retract or materially alter it somewhere down the line. Finally the patient needs the ability to target responses directly to the crux and essence of the doctor's questions not simply take it as an opportunity to ramble on disjointedly.

You don't know how very painful it can be to have a new patient unprepared to discuss the problem for which he/she came to the doctor. After all . . this problem has certainly been on that patient's mind for some time, else he/she would not be willing to pay to have it resolved. Yet, many sit there and expect the doctor to pull the story from them. Then there are those who go into such tedious detail regarding unassociated and unimportant events having really absolutely to do with the condition . . who they were visiting, where they were going, what the weather was like, etc. that it tends to derail the diagnostic thought process. It is certainly the job of the doctor to teach the patient what is needed in terms of his/her cooperation, and channel the patient in that direction, but time with your doctor may not be easy to come by. Therefore, it is often wise to make the most of it by planning ahead, bringing in notes and practicing your story.

She can say things like "draw" but instead of drawing pictures of their pets the kids can draw their guns. Or hey she can look at some strange guy in the building and declare "Make my day!" then he will have heart failure because he's just the copy machine guy trying to fix a decreped machine that should have been replaced 5 years ago because no one wanted to pay more taxes. Instead of counting apples the teacher can shoot them. Hey works for me.

Temperatures there have been recorded as low as 137 degrees below zero (Russian Station). The coldest ever recorded. If I understood them correctly the station is built on ice that reaches a depth of 9,000 ft. The station which is perhaps over 200,000 sf houses over 250 scientist. It is built on a large soild circurlar flat base 4' off the ground. It can float around with the ice flow. It can be jacked up two times in its life 4' each time and has an expected life of 20-40 years. Currently the only way to supply the station is is by aircraft with a few large items brought across a 300 mile dangerous ice field. 45-50 degrees below zero is very common. I have never been to the anartic but have been very close to the North Pole on many occasions and have seen temperatures near 100 below with winds blowing over 100mph. When these conditions occur you are stuck where ever you happen to be. In your quanset hut, hangar, or hopefully the Officers Club.

I've stated over and over again that prescription orthoses are completely over utilized and over prescribed. I've also stated that I'm happy that you've found YOUR nirvana and YOUR cure, but after over 20 years of practice I've seen a lot of patients find their "nirvana", but unfortunately it doesn't work for everyone. That doesn't discredit their finding, nor does it discredit treatments that work for others. There are many reasons for plantar fasciitis and it's not a simple ailment to treat. I hawk no products on this site and have no financial interest in any one treatment or modality. I also give advice on a lot of other conditions in addition to plantar fasciitis, so I challenge you to spend some time, perform a search and then find "much that we don't agree on". I mean after all, you are an expert in the field with your years of expertise and experience.

The one thing I don't agree with is your constant need to attack others and your constant negativity toward treatments that you don't agree with. I've told you many times, channel your energy into what works for YOU, but instead of simply coming on this forum and stating that you agree with me regarding my use of the Strassburg Sock and the modification I recommend, and that the best money you spent was the 30 bucks for the sock, you couldn't end it there........you had to add insult by going after Dr. Kiper.

Scottr: I just read an article this past week by a scientist who say we are still in but near the end of an ice age. I have no idea and no one will really know for probably 1000 years when enough data is available to see how things play out. As I often post I "think" when you look over time periods of millions of years it is not possible to say what cycle or period you are in at any given time. Cycles have cycles within themselves. We may be in a 500 yr. global warming cycle of a 10,000 yr. ice age? We can only now look back and recognize there was a Little Ice Age and see the results of what it actually caused. That was almost 1000 years ago and we now know it actually led to such things as the bubonic plague, that England was a producer of fine wine and since then the wine producing regions have retreated 350 miles to the south. The little ice age led to the dark ages. We appear to be in a global warming period but no one knows for how long or if a thousand years from now ice will be located in Lake Michigan in August. I think you and I only have a difference of just how fast things can change. Your position appears to be that in our lifetime the climatic changes will be horrendous. I do not think so but of course do not know so. A giant explosion of Yellowstone which scientist say is a real possibility could change the worlds climate dramatically by blotting out the sun and cooling the earth.

I know that swimming is supposed to be the best, but I can't do it very much because I am prone to muscle cramps. I'm considering joining a crew team, but am worried it might be detrimental to my PF.

None of my post was a personal attack against Abe. I have nothing personal against Abe, I'm simply attempting to make a few points. Those points are that Abe has made his disdain for orthoses and shoes very evident and citing articles supporting his view does not add any credibility, since articles that have compelling data supporting opposite views are also abundant.

Additionally, even if shoes WERE the worst invention ever known to mankind, the truth is that in our society it is a simple fact that shoes are a necessary item to function due to work demands, athletic demands, man made materials (concrete), etc.

Since Abe's point is already well known and has been expressed over and over again, I recommended that he channel his energy to something new and positive. Period.

No personal attack ever occurred.

Abe,
I'm not going to engage you in a pissing match, I'm just simply going to state a scientific fact when dealing with ANY subject, so I won't even use the issue of barefoot, shoes, orthoses, etc.

However, you have cited an article, two articles, etc., supporting your view on a particular topic, therefore you are now bascially stating "I told you so". Come on Abe, I know you're smarter than that and you know that you, I or anyone on this site can similarly come up with hundreds of articles with the converse point of view regarding footwear, orthoses, etc.

No matter WHAT the topic is, you can always find articles on the internet or in the literature to support YOUR point of view and your "opponent" can always find articles in the literature to support his/her point of view.

I don't understand your constant need to attempt to prove to the world that you've found the answer. If it works for you that's great. Go ahead and function painfree with no orthoses, no shoes or whatever works for you.

But the reality is that in our society, people/patients are simply not going to be able to walk around, go to school, go to work, participate in sports, etc., without some form of shoegear on their feet. So unless these patients plan on moving into a nudist colony or third world country or tribe wear barefoot is practicle, wearing some form of shoegear is a reality.

Once again, not EVERYONE is claiming that the holy grail lies in the shoe or orthoses. Any you've beaten to death your personal view that shoes and orthoses are the world's evil, so now why don't you move on and channel your energy into something positive.

And once again, finding several articles that support your view means very little, as I or anyone can find an equal number of articles supporting opposing views on ANY subject.

But it seems that you're motivated by "I told you so". It seems like with all your energy and time, you could use it for something more constructive. Maybe instead of organizing a shoe drive for the homeless like many people do for charity, you can organize a "burn your shoes" type of protest, sort of like the burn your bra protests of the 70's.

Presenting these since-discredited allegations as fact, President Bush and other high-ranking officials argued that Saddam’s government posed an intolerable risk in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks.

MRI results...need help! View Thread
Posted by Drew on 9/08/06 at 13:02

I'm not sure I understand the radiologist's comments on my latest MRI report, and my doctor is on vacation for two weeks. The report states,


"There is very mild soft tissue edema adjacent to the plantar fascia with minimal
thickening of the fascia near the calcaneal insertion as well as minimal adjacent
marrow edema. These findings are consistent with minimal stable changes without
evidence for fascial tear."

His final comments reiterate this, as he wrote, "Minimal changes of chronic plantar fasciitis appear stable."

The report also says, "There is linear bright signal within the dorsal inferior calcaneus that probably represents a prominent vascular channel." Not sure what this means either.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

ABC bows to lib censorship...yay libs View Thread

ABC's upcoming five-hour docudrama "The Path to 9/11" is quickly becoming a political cause célèbre.

The network has in recent days made changes to the film, set to air Sunday and Monday, after leading political figures, many of them Democrats, complained about bias and alleged inaccuracies. Meanwhile, a left-wing organization has launched a letter-writing campaign urging the network to "correct" or dump the miniseries, while conservative blogs have launched a vigorous defense.

ADVERTISEMENT

"The Path to 9/11," whose large ensemble includes Harvey Keitel and Patricia Heaton, offers a panoramic sweep of the events leading up to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The movie dramatizes what it deems intelligence and operational failures of the Clinton and Bush administrations, relying heavily on public records. Thomas Kean, the chairman of the 9/11 commission, served as a consultant.

After a screening of the first episode in Washington last week, some audience members attacked the film's depiction of the Clinton administration's pursuit of Osama bin Laden. Among those unhappy was Richard Ben-Veniste, an attorney and member of the 9/11 commission whom some conservatives have dismissed as a Democratic attack dog. Richard A. Clarke, the former counterterrorism czar, has criticized the movie for suggesting that the Clinton administration was in a position to capture Bin Laden in 1998 but canceled the mission at the last minute.

After much discussion, ABC executives and the producers toned down, but did not eliminate entirely, a scene that involved Clinton's national security advisor, Samuel R. "Sandy" Berger, declining to give the order to kill Bin Laden, according to a person involved with the film who declined to be identified because of the sensitivities involved.

"That sequence has been the focus of attention," the source said, adding: "These are very slight alterations."

In addition, the network decided that the credits would say the film is based "in part" on the 9/11 commission report, rather than simply "based on" the bestselling report, as the producers originally intended.

ABC, meanwhile, is tip-toeing away from the film's version of events. In a statement, the network said the miniseries "is a dramatization, not a documentary, drawn from a variety of sources, including the 9/11 commission report, other published materials and from personal interviews."

The statement adds: "The events that lead to 9/11 originally sparked great debate, so it's not surprising that a movie surrounding those events has revived the debate. The attacks were a pivotal moment in our history that should never be forgotten and it's fitting that the discussion continues."

None of ABC's moves is likely to quell the debate, however.

The Center for American Progress Action Fund, a liberal advocacy group, said on Wednesday it had collected 25,000 letters asking ABC to either correct or cancel the miniseries. "The miniseries presents an agenda that blames the Clinton administration for the 9/11 attacks while ignoring numerous errors and failures of the Bush administration," the center said in a news release.

LOL, THAT IS PRETTY MUCH ALL HE DID TOO AND GAVE ME A CHOICE OF TWO INSOLES AND WOULD NOT TELL ME THE DIFFERENCE WHEN I ASKED. ONE WAS GREY ONE WAS WHITISH. The only difference was that one seemed barely to flex a little more or either one was formed better. Guess what? While staring at his pile of thrown away insoles from convinced customers (nice tactic) and trying to see if I could find the ones I bought, I FOUND THEM, SHOWED THEM TO HIM AND HE SAID OH THEY GOT SUED, AND I REEXAMINED THEM WHILE HE WAS AWAY. I waited for him to bring me or show me the insoles he wanted me to buy, GUESS WHAT? THE INSOLES HE WAS TRYING TO SELL ME WERE THE SAME AS THOSE $24 ONES I GOT ON TV WHICH GUESS WHAT? WERE CAUSING ME THE SAME PAIN AS THOSE INSOLES! And what was his magical method of masking the pain lol? THE SAME I CAME UP WITH!: PLACING THE INSOLES OVER THE HARD ONES HE WAS SELLING ME. And ooooh, his generic black cover-up were better tho cuz uh, well he didn't say, but said they'd last six months, which is shorter than the amount of time others have lasted me.

He wanted $369 not including tax in the price for his set up. Lol, I still have my imitation? azzner alzner whatevers and can easily buy a pair of Dr. Scholls and place them over them for less than $369 that's for sure.

I agree with the above comments. The pain meds will allow you to go further but there is a reason the pain exists..to tell your brain enough now rest. When the nerve is agitated it feeds back via the pain message. so if you cover it with meds...well now you are going to really make things worse in the long run. Will you cause more damage to the nerve that is not reversable??? maybe I do not think even a Pod or Dr. will advise it is a good thing. But sometimes you want to go the extra yard so you use the meds...for me it is Ibuprofen since it works pretty well and I have a good tummy for it! I agree with Bambi the strong meds are good in the begining but one should ween off ASAP since the longterm is as she said not a good outcome typically. Some might argue about Lycra but so far I have resisted going on it since i am able to tollerate my pain levels with just Ibuprofen. From Wikipedia I copy/paste.....
_____________________________________________________________________
Pregabalin (INN) (IPA: [prɪˈgæbələn]) is an anticonvulsant drug used for neuropathic pain, as an adjunct therapy for partial seizures, and in generalized anxiety disorder. It was designed as a more potent successor to gabapentin. Pregabalin is marketed by Pfizer under the trade name Lyrica.

In the U.S., it is considered to have dependence liability if misused, and is classified as a Schedule V drug.[1]

History

Pregabalin was initially developed by biochemist Richard Silverman at Northwestern University in the United States. The drug was approved in the European Union in 2004. Pregabalin received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for use in treating epilepsy, diabetic neuropathy pain and post-herpetic neuralgia pain in June 2005, and appeared on the U.S. market in fall 2005.

Pharmacology

Like gabapentin, pregabalin binds to the α2δ subunit of the voltage-dependent calcium channel in the central nervous system, blocking channel action and thus calcium influx. However, the exact mechanism of action is unknown.

Clinical use

Indications

Pregabalin is indicated for:

* Treatment of neuropathic pain in adults
* Adjunctive therapy in adults with partial seizures with or without secondary generalization

In the European Union, it has also been approved for the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD).[2]

Adverse effects

Adverse drug reactions associated with the use of pregabalin include:[3][4]

* Very common (>10% of patients): dizziness, drowsiness
* Common (1–10% of patients): visual disturbance (including blurred vision, diplopia), ataxia, dysarthria, tremor, lethargy, memory impairment, euphoria, weight gain, constipation, dry mouth, peripheral edema
* Infrequent (0.1–1% of patients): depression, confusion, agitation, hallucinations, myoclonus, hypoaesthesia, hyperaesthesia, tachycardia, excessive salivation, sweating, flushing, rash, muscle cramp, myalgia, arthralgia, urinary incontinence, dysuria, thrombocytopenia
* Rare (<0.1% of patients): neutropenia, first degree heart block, hypotension, hypertension, pancreatitis, dysphagia, oliguria, rhabdomyolysis

Drug interactions

No pharmacokinetic interactions have been demonstrated in vivo. The manufacturer notes some potential pharmacological interactions with oxycodone, lorazepam and ethanol (alcohol). Concurrent use may increase the central nervous system effects of these medications (e.g. drowsiness, effects on concentration).[3]

Ibuprofen (INN) (IPA: [ˈaɪbjuprofɛn]) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) widely marketed under various trademarks including Act-3, Advil, Brufen, Motrin, Nuprin, and Nurofen. It is used for relief of symptoms of arthritis, primary dysmenorrhoea, fever, and as an analgesic, especially where there is an inflammatory component. Ibuprofen was developed by the research arm of Boots Group.

Clinical use

Low doses of ibuprofen (200 mg., and sometimes 400 mg.) are available over the counter (OTC) in most countries. Ibuprofen has a dose-dependent duration of action of approximately 4–8 hours, which is longer than suggested by its short half-life. The recommended dose varies with body mass and indication. Generally, the oral dose is 200–400 mg (5–10 mg/kg in children) every 4–6 hours, up to a usual maximum daily dose of 800–1200 mg. Under medical direction, a maximum daily dose of 3200 mg may sometimes be used.

Off-Label and investigational use

* As with other NSAIDs, ibuprofen may be useful in the treatment of severe orthostatic hypotension.[1]
* In some studies, ibuprofen showed superior results compared to placebo in the prophylaxis of Alzheimer's disease, when given in low doses over a long time.[2] Further studies are needed to confirm the results before ibuprofen can be recommended for this indication.
* Ibuprofen has been associated with a lower risk of Parkinson's disease, and may delay or prevent Parkinson's disease. Aspirin, other NSAIDs, and paracetamol had no effect on the risk for Parkinson's.[3] Further research is warranted before recommending ibuprofen for this use.

Ibuprofen lysine

In Europe, Australia, and New Zealand ibuprofen lysine (ibuprofenlysinat, the lysine salt of ibuprofen) is licensed for treatment of the same conditions as ibuprofen. Ibuprofen lysine has been shown to have a more rapid onset of action compared to base ibuprofen.[4]

Mechanism of action

Ibuprofen is an NSAID which is believed to work through inhibition of cyclooxygenase (COX), thus inhibiting prostaglandin synthesis. There are at least 2 variations of cyclooxygenase (COX-1 and COX-2 ), ibuprofen inhibits both COX-1 and COX-2. It appears that its analgesic, antipyretic, and anti-inflammatory activity are achieved principally through COX-2 inhibition; whereas COX-1 inhibition is responsible for its unwanted effects on platelet aggregation and the GI mucosa.

Main article: Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug

Adverse effects

Ibuprofen appears to have the lowest incidence of gastrointestinal adverse drug reactions (ADRs) of all the non-selective NSAIDs. However, this only holds true at lower doses of ibuprofen, so over-the-counter preparations of ibuprofen are generally labelled to advise a maximum daily dose of 1,200 mg.

Main article: Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug

Reported adverse drug reactions

In low single doses (200 to 400 mg) and daily doses of up to 1,200 mg the incidence of side effects is low. However, in patients treated on a long-term basis with more than 1,200 mg daily discontinuation rates are as high as 10 to 15%.

Common adverse effects include: nausea, dyspepsia, gastrointestinal ulceration/bleeding, raised liver enzymes, diarrhoea, headache, dizziness, salt and fluid retention, hypertension.[5]

Infrequent adverse effects include: oesophageal ulceration, heart failure, hyperkalaemia, renal impairment, confusion, bronchospasm, rash.[5]

Photosensitivity

As with other NSAIDs, ibuprofen has been reported to be a photosensitising agent.[6][7] However, this only rarely occurs with ibuprofen and it considered to be a very weak photosensitising agent when compared with other members of the 2-arylpropionic acids. This is because the ibuprofen molecule contains only a single phenyl moiety and no bond conjugation, resulting in a very weak chromophore system and a very weak absorption spectrum which does not reach into the solar spectrum.

Cardiovascular risk

Along with several other NSAIDs, ibuprofen has been implicated in elevating the risk of myocardial infarction, particularly among those chronically using high doses.[8]

Stereochemistry
3D model of (R)-ibuprofen
Enlarge
3D model of (R)-ibuprofen

Ibuprofen, like other 2-arylpropionate derivatives (including ketoprofen, flurbiprofen, naproxen, etc) contains a chiral carbon in the α-position of the propionate moiety. As such there are two possible enantiomers of ibuprofen with the potential for different biological effects and metabolism for each enantiomer.

Indeed it was found that (S)-(+)-ibuprofen (dexibuprofen) was the active form both in vitro and in vivo.

It was logical, then, that there was the potential for improving the selectivity and potency of ibuprofen formulations by marketing ibuprofen as a single-enantiomer product (as occurs with naproxen, another NSAID).

Further in vivo testing, however, revealed the existence of an isomerase which converted (R)-ibuprofen to the active (S)-enantiomer. Thus, due to the expense and futility that might be involved in marketing the single-enantiomer, most ibuprofen formulations currently marketed are racemic mixtures. A notable exception to this is Seractiv (Nordic Drugs).

Human toxicology

Ibuprofen overdose has become common since it was licensed for over-the-counter use. There are many overdose experiences reported in the medical literature.[9] Human response in cases of overdose ranges from absence of symptoms to fatal outcome in spite of intensive care treatment. Most symptoms are an excess of the pharmacological action of ibuprofen and include abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, drowsiness, dizziness, headache, tinnitus, and nystagmus. Rarely more severe symptoms such as gastrointestinal bleeding, seizures, metabolic acidosis, hyperkalaemia, hypotension, bradycardia, tachycardia, atrial fibrillation, coma, hepatic dysfunction, acute renal failure, cyanosis, respiratory depression, and cardiac arrest have been reported.[10]. The severity of symptoms varies with the ingested dose and the time elapsed, however, individual sensitivity also plays an important role. Generally, the symptoms observed with an overdose of ibuprofen are similar to the symptoms caused by overdoses of other NSAIDs.

There is little correlation between severity of symptoms and measured ibuprofen plasma levels. Toxic effects are unlikely at doses below 100 mg/kg but can be severe above 400 mg/kg;[11] however, large doses do not indicate that the clinical course is likely to be lethal.[12] It is not possible to determine a precise lethal dose, as this may vary with age, weight, and concomitant diseases of the individual patient.

Therapy is largely symptomatic. In cases presenting early, gastric decontamination is recommended. This is achieved using activated charcoal; charcoal absorbs the drug before it can enter the systemic circulation. Gastric lavage is now rarely used, but can be considered if the amount ingested is potentially life threatening and it can be performed within 60 minutes of ingestion. Emesis is not recommended.[13] The majority of ibuprofen ingestions produce only mild effects and the management of overdose is straightforward. Standard measures to maintain normal urine output should be instituted and renal function monitored.[11] Since ibuprofen has acidic properties and is also excreted in the urine, forced alkaline diuresis is theoretically beneficial. However, due to the fact ibuprofen is highly protein bound in the blood, there is minimal renal excretion of unchanged drug. Forced alkaline diuresis is therefore of limited benefit.[14] Symptomatic therapy for hypotension, GI bleeding, acidosis, and renal toxicity may be indicated. Occasionally, close monitoring in an intensive care unit for several days is necessary. If a patient survives the acute intoxication, he/she will usually experience no late sequelae.

Availability

Ibuprofen was made available under prescription in the United Kingdom in 1969. In the years since, the good tolerability profile along with extensive experience in the community (otherwise known as Phase IV trials), has resulted in the rescheduling of small packs of ibuprofen to allow availability over-the-counter in pharmacies worldwide. Indeed there has been an increasing trend towards descheduling ibuprofen such that it is now available in supermarkets and other general retailers. The wider availability has meant that ibuprofen is now almost as commonly used as aspirin and paracetamol.

Slang names
This section does not cite its references or sources.
You can help Wikipedia by introducing appropriate citations.

A standing joke about some athletes' regular use has produced "Vitamin I"[1] as a slang term for ibuprofen.

In the military, "Grunt Candy" is used as a generic name for ibuprofen, paracetamol, or naproxen.

scottr I was at three places in Greenland. Thule being the furtherest north. I think it is the most northern community in the world and was established in the early 1950's when we put an air base there to monitor Russian activity by radar. I started flying in there in 1957 so it was still very remote at that time and today may be more worldly although the water is still frozen over until August. I am guessing there are about 500 people who live on or near the base. A tough lot. In the winter all you could see was white. Being so close to the pole, navigation was a bear, because as you know magnetic north and true north are very different. Being that close to the pole a few degrees can get you lost.

I also spent some time in the southern tip of Greenland in Narsarsuaq (spelling). This is the place they dug up some pristine WWII aircraft out of the ice. I think the aircraft were under something like 50' of ice.

There was another place on the west coast of Greenland about halfway up which I think was Maniitsoq which I often visited. Nearly all of the people who live in Greenland live on the West Coast. There is no way to survive on the interior. I also lived a year in Iceland (keflavik). You would love the Icelandic girls. In the 50's they were like American girls of the late 60's and 70's.

The ice has been melting in Greenland since the 1800's and peaked in the early 1900's. I would suggest that before the melting ice gets us that something more like an atomic war or an object from outer-space will send us to the land of the dinos. The Weather Channel I think is going to do a special very soon on how our planet could possible come to an end.
Have a nice day.

Actually humans are doing more damage than meteorites, at least as far as destruction of plant and animal life, with the exception of humans and human food sources. All that carbon we're releasing for the biosphere is great for plant and therefore animal life, terrible for certain aspects of human economies. The unknown is what changes such an unprecedented increase in temp will cause. Greenland has never melted as fast as it's melting now, and it's getting faster since the effects we see in the atmosphere are delayed 10 years in greenland. You said the water to thule was still frozen in august in the 50's. It was OPEN WATER in JUNE of 2004. It was ice at sea level when you were last there. Right now, it's melting as high as 5,000 feet above sea level near Thule. Current temperature is 41 F.

The plane they found under 50' of ice is due to the churning and dropping of the lpane, not duue to a thicker glacier.

I also spent some time in the southern tip of Greenland in Narsarsuaq (spelling). This is the place they dug up some pristine WWII aircraft out of the ice. I think the aircraft were under something like 50' of ice.

There was another place on the west coast of Greenland about halfway up which I think was Maniitsoq which I often visited. Nearly all of the people who live in Greenland live on the West Coast. There is no way to survive on the interior. I also lived a year in Iceland (keflavik). You would love the Icelandic girls. In the 50's they were like American girls of the late 60's and 70's.

The ice has been melting in Greenland since the 1800's and peaked in the early 1900's. I would suggest that before the melting ice gets us that something more like an atomic war or an object from outer-space will send us to the land of the dinos. The Weather Channel I think is going to do a special very soon on how our planet could possible come to an end.
Have a nice day.

Flying up to identify a civilian airliner late at night in thick clouds with visibility basically zero must be a real shock for passengers and is sort of touchy for the pilot of the jet as you must place yourself off the wing of the airliner in range that a spotlight will identify the aircraft. This can be 25' and you are flying on instruments. A sudden bright light coming through the windows would have to shock the passengers something terrible. You normally contacted the aircraft to be intercepted on a Guard Channel which all aircraft would be monitoring so the pilots in command would know you are coming in. If they are watching their radar they will know it anyway. Whether they tell the passengers I do not. It would be an embarrasment to the pilots on the airliner as they are clearly of course and unidentified. During the cold war we always were concened about unidentified incoming aircraft and all were intercepted when off course. We had intercept bases all up and down the east/west coast and Canada.

Iranians among Hizbollah combat dead View Thread
Posted by marie on 8/09/06 at 19:12

Well it's no surprise but I thought some of ya'll might find it interesting.

http://reuters.myway.com/article/20060809/2006-08-09T214818Z_01_L09100220_RTRIDST_0_NEWS-MIDEAST-LEBANON-IRANIANS-DC.html

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Members of Iran's Revolutionary Guard have been found among Hizbollah guerrillas slain by Israeli forces in southern Lebanon, Israel's Channel 10 television reported on Wednesday citing diplomatic sources.

It said the Iranians were identified by documents found on their bodies, but gave no further details on how many were discovered or when. Neither the Israeli military nor Hizbollah representatives in Beirut had immediate comment on the report.

Iran, like fellow Hizbollah patron Syria, insists its support for the Shi'ite guerrilla group is purely moral.

Israel says many of the rockets being fired against its civilian and military targets are Iranian made, and that Hizbollah fighters taking on its forces trained in Iran. Washington also accuses Tehran of actively funding Hizbollah.

Iran's Revolutionary Guards are traditionally very close to fellow Shi'ite Muslims in Hizbollah and were deployed in south Lebanon in the 1980s.

Re: light absorbtion clues View Thread
Posted by scott r on 8/08/06 at 23:24

Just my note-taking for future reference:

"CuA is a diatomic site. Recent evidence suggests that both copper atoms in the oxidized state are in a mixed valence [Cu(1.5)-Cu(1.5)] configuration (Antholine et al., 1992; van der Oost et al., 1992; Kelly et al., 1993; Lappalainen et al., 1993; Malmström and Aasa, 1993; Steffens et al., 1993). The optical absorbance spectrum of the CuA site was determined using the specially prepared soluble CuA binding domain (subunit II) from the P. denitrificans cytochrome c oxidase (Lappalainen et al., 1993). Using the soluble form of subunit II, CuA exhibits a very broad absorbance band in the region of 830 nm with a small extinction coefficient and more intense absorbance bands in the region of 500 nm. The absorbance band at 830 nm is characteristic for CuA because this spectral region does not overlap with the absorbance of the hemes."

"The reduced-minus-oxidized spectrum of heme a has a characteristic absorption maximum at 445 nm and minimum at 430 nm in the Soret region and maximum at 605 nm in the alpha region. The extinction coefficient of the absorbance bands in the Soret region are smaller compared to heme a3, but in the alpha region heme a absorbs much more intensively and the absorbance band is much sharper than that of heme a3. The peak positions of the absorbance spectrum of heme a are very unusual for the low spin A-type heme: they are significantly red
shifted. "

"the fully oxidized enzyme shows a weak band at ~660 nm due
to the high-spin ferric heme a3 (Beinert et al., 1976; Carter and Palmer, 1982). This band has been postulated to be due to charge-transfer to the ligand of heme a3 (Mitchell et al., 1991) and
to be modulated by the redox state of CuB (Beinert et al., 1976).
The CuB atom is 4.5 Å away from the heme a3 iron. Together heme a3 and CuB form a binuclear oxygen reduction center."

"While most of the early steady-state and stopped-flow experiments favored heme a over CuA as the primary acceptor of electrons from cytochrome c in vivo (reviewed by Brunori (1988)), more recent transient kinetic studies suggest the opposite. Now CuA is generally accepted as being the primary electron acceptor from cytochrome c (Hill, 1991). The electron transfer rate between cytochrome c and CuA is very fast, about 60000-70000 s-1 (Hill, 1994; Geren et al., 1995). The electron transfer is a very fast event and it has been proposed that the formation of the complex between cytochrome c and cytochrome c oxidase is the rate-limiting step in the reaction between reduced cytochrome c and the oxidase"

"This demonstrates that the forward and backward rates of the electron transfer between heme a and CuA in cytochrome c oxidase are the same."

"From CuA electrons are transferred to heme a at a relatively high speed (about 20000 s-1) considering the long metal-to-metal distance (19.5 Å) and small driving force of 50 mV (Winkler et al., 1995). The crystal structure shows that the distances from CuA to the iron atoms of heme a and heme a3 are 19.5 Å and 22.1 Å respectively. Surprisingly only the electron pathway via heme a is used in cytochrome c oxidase. From heme a the electron is transferred to heme a3. As mentioned previously, these hemes are nearly perpendicular to each other. While the iron-to-iron distance is 13.5 Å (Michel
et al., 1998) the edges of the hemes approach each other up to 7.3 Å. An edge-to-edge electron transfer is therefore possible as well as a pathway using the iron ligands "

"According to Konstantinov et al., (1997), the D-channel is likely to be involved in the uptake of both the so called “chemical” protons (used for oxygen to water reduction) and “pumped” protons (used to create + ∆ H µ~ ) at least in the F→O transition. The K-channel is probably idle at this part of the reaction and is likely to be used for loading of the enzyme with protons at some earlier steps of the catalytic cycle. Later, the Helsinki Bioenergetics Group demonstrated that only the first proton during the reduction of the enzyme is taken up via K-channel and all other ”chemical” and ”pumped” protons are transferred through the D-channel (Wikström et al., 2000)."

"At the maximal turnover rate of the bacterial cytochrome c oxidase, the enzyme produces 2000 water molecules per second. This is a considerable amount of water produced, therefore water exit
pathways are probably necessary. A hydrophilic cleft between subunit I and II proceeds from the binuclear site to the surface of the protein. "

"The typical turnover rate for bovine cytochrome c oxidase is in the order of 100 oxygen molecules per second and one turnover of the enzyme takes about ten milliseconds. The bacterial enzyme functions at a rate even faster than that. Each single turnover of the enzyme
involves a number of chemical intermediates and the first intermediates of the reactions appear within a few microseconds."

"It is essential that the terminal oxidases have a high affinity for oxygen because the concentration of dissolved oxygen in the tissue is very low. However, the binding of oxygen to the respiratory heme-copper oxidases is very weak (Chance et al., 1975; Verkhovsky et al.,1994). On the other hand, cytochrome c oxidase reduces oxygen with a high rate. This paradox has been attributed to kinetic trapping during the rapid chemical reactions of oxygen inside the binuclear center (Chance et al., 1975) and by the fast electron transfer between hemes (Verkhovsky et al., 1994; Verkhovsky et al., 1996). Instead of acquiring the oxygen molecule by tight binding, an energetically expensive alternative, the enzyme makes a rapid but loose attachment from which the oxygen molecule is subsequently “trapped” by the first redox step of the reaction. This achieves an apparent dioxygen affinity for the reduced binuclear center which is orders of magnitude more favorable than the oxygen binding affinity (Chance et al., 1975; Verkhovsky et al., 1994)."

"Thermodynamic analysis of this reaction(Wikström and Morgan, 1992) led to the conclusion that all the work required for proton pumping is done in the two electron transfer steps: P→F and F→O, consistent with translocation of two protons at each step (Wikström, 1989). These transitions are associated with the largest drop of energy. As calculated by Wikström and Morgan (1992), the drop of energy is 1.1 V and 1.2 V during P→F and F→O transitions, respectively. All other transitions in the oxygen reaction are not associated with a significant release of energy."

Using the temporal comparison of optical and electrometrical data Verkhovsky et al.,
(1997) demonstrated that the P→F and F→O transitions are associated with an equal amount of
transferred charge. Unfortunately, it is difficult to calibrate the electrometric response and at the
time it was impossible to say how many charges were transferred during each transition.

The electron travels via CuA to heme a and
-18-
hence to the oxygen-reduction site where it reduces F to O. Two electrogenic phases were
observed, corresponding to fast electron transfer from CuA to heme a followed by slower
reduction of F to O. The amplitude of ∆ψ generated in the F→O transition was found to be 4
times the amplitude of the fast phase. The main conclusion in this work was that the F→O
transition is associated with the pumping of two protons. Later Siletsky et al., (1999), using the
same electrometric technique, demonstrated the same number for the P→F transition.
Unfortunately, the number of translocated protons determined from these experiments crucially
depends on the dielectric depth of the hemes in the membrane (d).

My statement about bush pushing the war and twisting intelligence to suit his needs is based on known facts, not emotion or hating bush. Maybe if you'd watch something other than FOX news, you'd know something about it. Just do a few internet searches. See the end of this post for an example. Now say you're sorry for doubting me and believing that Bush didn't make the Iraq connection up, or I might start calling you "larry, the hater of truth, justice, and the american way" unless you think lying your way into a war is the american way (uh...oops....i think that's what we just did).

Not that i "hate" fox news (lord knows people here seem to like making ASSUMPTIONS about me), honest to God it's my favorite channel. Everytime I turn there for more than a few seconds I can't stop laughing. They're entertaining, exciting, passionate, perpetually ignorant in their thought processes, and hilariously biased in their selection and treatment of 'guests'. Maybe it's the ego boost I get out of watching them bleat like goats gorging on emotion and patriotism. What more could you ask for in entertainment? They appeal to all sides for different reasons.

From Frontline, Wesley Clarke, Bush's own man:

=====================
I think we knew prior to 9/11 that there was serious interest in having something happen with Iraq. People would joke around the water cooler in the West Wing Situation Room, that "We're flying all these planes over Iraq every day, blowing up their radar sites. Maybe ... they'll shoot one down, and that will give us the provocation we need to do war."

Beginning on the night of 9/11, we have the secretary of defense and others talking about going to war with Iraq. I think we knew pretty much that week that the probability of finding a justification for going to war with Iraq was high on their agenda.

The president, in fact, talks to you about it.

Well, the president wandered into the Situation Room, totally unscheduled, just to say, "Hi. Keep it up! Good work!"-- raise everybody's morale. [He] saw me and dragged me and a few others into the conference room and started talking about Iraq, and having me go through all the evidence that we had piled up from the weeks and months before to see if there was a connection between what had happened on 9/11 and Iraq.

And he said: "Saddam! Saddam! See if there's a connection to Saddam!" And this wasn't "See if there's a connection with Iran, and while you're at it, do Iraq, and while you're at it, do the Palestinian Islamic group." It wasn't "Do due diligence." It wasn't "Have an exhaustive review." It was "Saddam, Saddam." I read that pretty clearly, that that was the answer he wanted.

I said to him, "We have already done that research prior to the attack" -- in fact, we'd done it a couple of times -- "and there's nothing there." And the facial expression back was, "That wasn't the right answer."

So I said, "Well, but we will do it again." And we asked CIA to do it again. CIA did it again, came up with the same answer. That answer was written up and handed to the president by George Tenet in one of his morning meetings, and it said, "For the third or fourth time, we've gone back to look at the relationship between Al Qaeda and Iraq, and there is no real cooperation between those two."

For certain individuals it's necessary to have what's called a plantar relief channel modified into the mold. This is most called for when the medial column of the fascia makes what looks like a rigid string of tissue when the foot is manipulated into the propulsive stage of the gait cycle. This allows the orthotic to remain supportive/corrective of the foot while not being overtly aggressive on this sinewy band. Sometimes soft padding is also applied to the top of the device, but that's not always necessary. In short, it's not an unusual addition to the orthotic.

The calcium channel blocker has nothing to do with the development of the spurring at the back of your heels. This develops as the result of chronic pulling/tightness of the Achilles tendon complex.

I would go with your doctors' analysis that aggressive treatment may be uncalled for. The next best solution is to find either a C PED with outstanding shoe modification skills or a RST (new term for OST) who can alter the heel counter of your boots to make them more tolerable. Possible modifications include (but not limited to) installing poron heel cushions with a relief channel at the spur site and carving away the plastic heel counter again at the site of the spur.

Dr. Kiper has some interesting and valid information on his website. He also has some misnomers, but they are a minority among the content given. There are a few aspects with which I give question:

1. Although many of his statements are absolutely true regarding classic Root constructed orthotics, there is nothing to distinguish those from modern functional orthoses which activate the TN joint. There are over 1/2 dozen different facilities currently researching the efficacy of these devices, with papers already hvaing been presented through various channels (including the APMA and PFA). With my experience fabricating and dispensing viscoelastic gel custom inserts there are lots of times where these orthotics will not reach the patient outcome I'm trying to address. But there are times they are irreplacable.

2. Dr. Kiper is not the pioneer of this technology. Reicken's Orthotic Labs has been making and teaching this material technique for ages. Carl Reicken recently was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from BCP, as well.

3. I always shudder when I hear of mail-order custom orthotics. More times than not the instructions are for the patient to stand in the box. As soon as that happens the foot is entirely elongated, and along with it every bit of biomechanical deficiency which exists. The resulting orthotic (be it made from gel, foam or plastic) has extremely high tolerance, but rarely does the pain the orthotic was supposed to address diminish. The only time I use this technique is when the patient has a rigid deformity that can only be addressed with the foot in it's elongated state. This is particularly true for those whose knees, hips, and or back are also in a fixed rigid deformity. Any amount of subtalar correction would be extremely painful, from the feet up.

I'm happy to hear that you personally are having good success with his product. I just caution others here reading to explore their options, and uncover professionals who possess both a great deal of experience and a variety of means in addressing orthotic care. One fix is certainly not applicable to every individual.

Parke-Davis’ Neurontin(R) (gabapentin capsules) significantly reduced chronic neuropathic pain View Thread
Posted by Bryan W. on 3/30/06 at 18:49

The wonder drug for neuropathic pain...Like the type we with TTS get!!! Here is some info from my cyber search of the pain killer! Enjoy a better life...pain free! My Pod said if my nerve rejuvination does not end all of my pain then this would be the one he would perscribe for me! I have to say from what I read it does seem to work and the side effects for most are nil! Esp. good news that it works well in older patients with DPN..........

One study examined the effects of Neurontin on patients with diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN), a chronic, often painful condition that affects approximately half of the estimated 1.5 million diabetes patients in Canada. A companion study examined the use of Neurontin in patients suffering from post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN), the chronic neuropathic pain condition that can follow shingles (herpes zoster).

Results of the national, multi-centre DPN study demonstrated that patients suffering from diabetic peripheral neuropathy experienced a significant reduction in pain after treatment with the drug and that 26 percent of those patients treated with Neurontin were pain-free at the end of the trial compared to 15 percent of patients treated with placebo. This difference was statistically significant.

Findings of the national, multi-centre PHN study showed that patients suffering from the condition experienced a statistically significant reduction in average daily pain after treatment with Neurontin. Importantly, almost twice as many patients treated with Neurontin (16 percent) were pain-free versus those treated with placebo (8.8 percent) at the end of the trial. Both studies also showed that patients receiving Neurontin experienced improvement in sleep and overall quality of life.

The PHN study was a multi-centre, randomised, double-blind study conducted over a treatment period of eight weeks and involved 229 PHN patients.

"The results of this trial are particularly encouraging, given the hundreds of thousands of people suffering from this debilitating and extremely painful condition," said R. Norman Harden, M.D., director of the Centre for Pain Studies, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. "Further, the age distribution of patients with PHN includes a disproportionate number of older patients, which is a difficult population to treat."

PHN is a syndrome of often intractable pain following herpes zoster, a condition commonly known as shingles. It is estimated that 10 to 20 percent of Canadians will be affected by herpes zoster in their lifetime. In the majority of patients, the condition is characterised by intense pain that has been described by sufferers as burning, deep aching, tearing and electric shock-like. While the pain tends to fade over a period of time, as many as 15 percent suffer from chronic neuropathic pain that persists beyond the resolution of the herpes zoster rash. Pain that persists for three months after resolution of this rash is commonly defined as PHN. PHN may persist for years in some patients.

The DPN study was a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial conducted over a treatment period of eight weeks involving a total of 165 patients. The patients enrolled had a one to five-year history of pain associated with diabetic neuropathy.

"DPN is a neuropathic condition that is, historically, extremely difficult to treat," said Keith R. Edwards, M.D., director, Neurological Research Centre, Bennington, VT. "This study is one of the largest of its kind in this condition. In patients with DPN, gabapentin substantially reduced neuropathic pain and was well tolerated.

“Further, more significant pain reduction was observed in some patients after only two weeks of treatment. All of these findings combined are clinically important."

DPN is characterised by nerve fibre loss that can result in symptoms ranging from diminished pain and temperature perception, paresthesia (pins and needles) and neuropathic (sharp or burning) pain, to loss of light touch and muscle weakness. Other symptoms include insomnia, anxiety, depression, weight loss and a general decline in quality of life.

"In this study, Neurontin reduced pain and sleep interference associated with the condition and also exhibited positive effects on mood and quality of life," Dr. Edwards said.

Diabetes is a clinical condition that impairs the ability of the body to produce or properly respond to insulin, a hormone essential for life. Type II diabetes, also known as adult onset or non-insulin-dependent diabetes (despite the fact that many require insulin injections) usually occurs in those over 45 and overweight. Type II diabetes affects the majority of the 1.5 million Canadian diabetics and it is estimated that another 750,000 people are undiagnosed. Type I diabetes, also known as juvenile onset or insulin-dependent diabetes usually starts in children or young adults who are slim and affects about 10 per cent of people with diabetes in Canada.

The pain associated with DPN in diabetic patients is, at times, constant, severe and deep, and is frequently associated with mood and sleep disturbances as well as a decline in function. Pain in diabetic patients with DPN affects the feet and ankles most often and, to a lesser extent, the lower extremities above the knees and upper extremities.

Neurontin is indicated as adjunctive therapy in the treatment of partial seizures with and without secondary generalisation in adults (greater than 12 years old). Neurontin is contraindicated in patients who have demonstrated hypersensitivity to the drug or its ingredients.

The most common adverse events during clinical trials were somnolence (19.3 percent versus 8.7 percent with placebo); dizziness (17.1 percent versus 6.9 percent with placebo); ataxia (12.5 percent versus 5.6 percent with placebo); fatigue (11 percent versus five percent with placebo); nystagmus (8.3 percent versus four percent with placebo); and tremor (6.8 percent versus 3.2 percent with placebo).

Neurontin has been studied since 1983 and was approved by the FDA for the control of epilepsy in 1994. Parke-Davis has been successfully conducting long-term clinical trials in doses at 2400-3600mg a day.

In 1996, research for other purposes began appearing and there has been a quiet revolution of patients and doctors finding that Neurontin is helpful in illnesses other than epilepsy. Neurontin being prescribed for disorders other than epilepsy is called "off-label" use.

Neurontin has a growing multitude of medical studies showing it effective for off-label illnesses such as:

* Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD),
* brain injury,
* essential tremors,
* sleep dysfunction,
* Interstitial Cystitis,
* refractory GU tract pain,
* agitation secondary to dementia,
* muscle cramps,
* inflammatory injuries,
* tinnitus
* phantom limb pain
* cocaine dependence
* TMJ,
* neuropathic pain,
* Shoulder-Hand Syndrome,
* hemifacial spasms,
* peripheral neuropathy,
* the pain, nystagmus, and spasticity of Multiple Sclerosis (MS),
* trigeminal neuralgia,
* prophylaxis and for acute migraines,
* for pain secondary to epidural fibrosis,
* acute and postherpetic neuralgia (Shingles),
* acute pain from Herpes Simplex,
* post-operative pain,
* myofascial pain (MPS),
* radiation myelopathy,
* cancer pain
* Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS),
* Lou Gehrig's Disease (ALS) (but not its progression),
* Periodic Leg Movement (PLM),
* chronic pain not already mentioned here,
* Bipolar Disorder,
* social phobias,
* somatiform pain with depression,
* mood disorders,
* both situational and clinical depression,

and it was concluded in one study that gabapentin (Neurontin) "represents a novel class of antihyperalgesic agents" (pain medications) and millions of us have proven that.

Dr. Seastrunk, a psychiatrist from Texas, was one of the first doctors who found Neurontin helpful in CFS and FMS and he theorized that is because there is a focal brain injury that Neurontin can minimize. Off-label research now points to the probability that Neurontin decreases Substance P activity and its mechanism may involve activation of the neuronal GABAg1,g2 receptors negatively coupled to voltage-dependent calcium channels, thereby lessening pain signals to the brain.

NOW WHAT DO THE PATIENTS THINK OF IT??????????????

Off-Label Uses: What isn't Neurontin used for? It's the late-20th century's most successful snake oil! Monotherapy Treatment for Epilepsy (used all by its lonesome). Bipolar Disorder - basically useful only if bad anxiety or substance abuse is also present, or nothing else has worked. And then usually only as an add-on med. Migraines. Neuropathic pain. Depression. PTSD. Alcoholism (one study has it working well on mild-to-moderate alcohol withdrawal, another showed it to be insignificant for acute withdrawal). Anxiety (including panic and social phobia, but Parke-Davis' data are suspect, and public speaking). Sleep Disorders. Restless Leg Syndrome/PLMS, MS, Chronic Fatigue. Menopausal Symptoms. Treating HIV/AIDS-related Neuropathy. Phantom Limb Pain. Cocaine Abuse. And probably a bunch of stuff I don't even know about. Sometimes it's quite useful in these applications, sometimes it's prescribed first just because it's an anticonvulsant with a very low side effect profile and doctors are sick and tired of people whining about how medication sensitive they are.



Neurontin's Pros and Cons:

Pros: It has a very low side effect profile. Given that what you take is what works on your brain there are few drug-drug interactions (but they are wacky). Neurontin (gabapentin) is a proven pain reliever that doesn't mess with you as much as the other anticonvulsants do, and works better for non-migraine pain better than most of the others.



Cons: It doesn't work for a lot of people, mostly because of bioavailabilty issues. Because of Parke-Davis' allegedly sleazy marketing practices you can't get samples from your doctor anymore.

Neurontin's side effects:

Typical Side Effects: The usual for anticonvulsants, albeit to a lesser degree for most people. Although at the higher dosages Mouse and I, especially Mouse, experience memory problems. The main problems with Neurontin are dizziness, cloudy thinking, fatigue and klutziness.



Not So Common Side Effects: Edema. Really goofy thinking - one person taking it calls the med, "Morontin." If being treated for bipolar disorder, don't be surprised if it results in hypomania instead of working as a mood stabilizer - as that has been reported in the clinical trials for epilepsy, in at least one of the studies on Neurontin (gabapentin) as a treatment for bipolar, and several times in the online support groups. I haven't found any studies to back this up, but my doctor tells me that at the higher dosages Neurontin (gabapentin) does start to hit the dopamine receptors. The combination of GABA and dopamine may be just the thing for depression, but can get some people really goofy, and not necessarily in a good way.

These may or may not happen to you don't, so don't be surprised one way or the other.



Freaky Rare Side Effects: Taste perversion, abnormal accommodation, libido increased, baby you are coming over to my house right now! I've got plenty of Neurontin on hand!

You aren't going to get these. I promise.




Interesting Stuff Your Doctor Probably Won't Tell You: Neurontin (gabapentin) is a prime example of the Law of Diminishing Returns in that the more you take the less you get. Seriously. It's right there in the PI sheet. "As dose is increased, bioavailability decreases. Bioavailability of gabapentin is approximately 60%, 47%, 34%, 33%, and 27% following 900, 1200, 2400, 3600, and 4800 mg/day given in 3 divided doses, respectively." You can try to squeeze out a little more absorption by taking it with food, but you buy a whopping 14% increase, on average, in the bioavailability. Sometimes every little bit helps.



Neurontin (gabapentin) is basically a neurotransmitter in a pill. Rather, it's close to the neurotransmitter GABA. GABA can't cross the blood-brain barrier. True synthesized GABA would have to be injected straight into your noggin. Sorry to make you cringe. The point is, unlike most psychiatric drugs, what you take in the capsule (or tablet or oral solution) is what more-or-less what works in your brain. Neurontin (gabapentin) doesn't need your liver to make what really does the job. That means it will play well with practically every other medication there is, right? For us crazies and spazzes, that's right. The only thing we have to be careful with is stuff like Maalox. As a lot of meds cause tummy troubles, a lot of us use OTC remedies like Maalox. Maalox interferes a bit with Neurontin (gabapentin). You just have to wait a couple hours after taking antacids to take Neurontin (gabapentin).

But people who take Neurontin (gabapentin) for pain, and that includes a lot of us crazies, as fibromyalgia is far too common in the bipolar community, Neurontin (gabapentin) has a weird drug-drug interaction with opiates. The opiates make Neurontin (gabapentin) work better, but the Neurontin (gabapentin) makes the opiates less efficient! It's weird, and since Neurontin (gabapentin) isn't really metabolized, who the hell knows what the deal is with that. This is spelled out in the PI sheet, but who reads those, right? When you take Neurontin (gabapentin) along with hydrocodone (a.k.a. Vicodin), it decreases the bioavailability of the hydrocodone by up to 22%! While the bioavailability of Neurontin (gabapentin) is increased by 14%. It's even odder when combined with morphine. As Mouse points out there's an element of timing involved, as the one article on the interaction has morphine administered two hours before the Neurontin (gabapentin). The morphine was unaffected, having pretty much been on its way towards peak plasma, but the Neurontin (gabapentin) bioavailability was increased by a whopping 44%! We have no idea if this effect carries over to the artificial opiods, like Demerol or buprenorphine.

Meanwhile taking naproxen (a.k.a. Aleve) increases Neurontin's bioavailability by 12-15%, while there is no apparent affect on naproxen's bioavailability.






Neurontin's Dosage and How to Take Neurontin: Given all the different things for which Neurontin (gabapentin) is used, I'm not about to cover all the possible dosages. I'm just going to cover the FDA-approved applications in adults and bipolar disorder. For everything else it's between you and your doctor.



For shingles start with 1 300mg dose. On day 2 take your 300mg dose two times a day. On day 3 take it three times a day. Then work your way up as required to a dosage range of 1,800 to 3,600mg a day divided over three to four doses a day.



For epilepsy Parke-Davis recommends you start right out with the therapeutic dosage of 900mg a day, divided over 3 300mg doses. What the hell? This is an add-on medication folks, how about a little titration? My advice is to follow the schedule for shingles. Give your body a chance to get used to this stuff. The effective therapeutic range is 900 to 2,400mg a day, in doses taken three to four times a day. You shouldn't let 12 hours pass between doses.



For bipolar, remember everything is off-label, experimental and, frankly, Neurontin (gabapentin) is not a first-line bipolar medication. Follow the schedule for shingles, although you may allow yourself twice as long to get used to the med - two days at each dosage. Don't expect to feel much until you get to 900mg a day. Like epilepsy, once you get up to 900mg a day, don't let more than 12 hours pass between each dose. If you don't feel anything by the time you get up to 1800mg a day, just give up. If Neurontin (gabapentin) is doing something for you, that's one thing, but if it's not doing anything at all, don't just throw more at it.



Parke-Davis is all about taking it three times a day. My experience, my doctor's and the various studies I've looked at indicate that mileage always varies. There has even been one study on taking Neurontin (gabapentin) three or four times a day. I found that taking it four times a day works better for me than three times a day.



As for how much you can take, the sky is the limit. There is no known lethal dosage for Neurontin (gabapentin). The tablets are more likely to be a choking hazard than the risk of poisoning yourself from several bottles of the stuff. However, between the diminishing returns of bioavailability and the side effects of getting all that stuff in you it's just a pointless exercise to be taking megadosages of Neurontin (gabapentin). The real harm of a lot of Neurontin, from a psychiatric standpoint, is that it gets in the way of taking the right medications. If it works for you, fine. But if Neurontin (gabapentin) isn't doing squat at the normal therapeutic range, just give up and move on.





Days to Reach a Steady State: Two days after you're taking it at least three times a day.

When you're fully saturated with the medication and less prone to peaks and valleys of effects. You still might have peaks of effect after taking many meds, but with a lot of the meds you'll have fewer valleys after this point. In theory anyway.



How Long Neurontin Takes to Work: It should start to do something for you a couple days after you reach 900mg a day. But because of the whole bioavailability issue it may not be until you're somewhere in the range of 900-1800mg a day, presuming it will do anything at all for you.



Neurontin's Half-Life & Average Time to Clear Out of Your System: 5-7 hours. It's out of your system in 2 days.

How to Stop Taking Neurontin: Your doctor should be recommending that you reduce your dosage by 100-300mg a day every two days, 5-7 hour half-life, if not more slowly than that.

Like any anticonvulsant, if you've been taking Neurontin (gabapentin) for more than a couple months and you're up to or above 900mg a day you just can't stop cold turkey if you're not at the therapeutic dosage for another anticonvulsant that you know works for you, otherwise you risk partial-complex, absence seizures or even tonic-clonic grand mals, despite your never having had a seizure disorder before! The risk is worse if you're taking a lithium variant, and/or any antidepressant, especially Wellbutrin (bupropion hydrochloride). Anyone with a history of a seizure disorder who needs to stop taking an anticonvulsant cold turkey needs to be discussing that with two neurologists and not getting your information from some stupid web site. Get off your computer and start making appointments!

If you've worked your way up to a particular dosage, it's usually best to spend this many days at the next lowest dosage before going down the next lowest dosage before that and so forth. This is the least sucky way to avoid problems when stopping any psychiatric medication. Presuming you have the option of slowly tapering off them.




Comments: Be sure to read the section on anticonvulsants if you haven't done so already.

Approved by the FDA to treat epilepsy in December 1993 Neurontin (gabapentin) is the weakest of the semi-official mood stabilizers, but it works for me! Yet I am a known freak. Neurontin's main problem is in the digestive tract, and that is allegedly going to be solved with the new and improved version, pregabalin, which might be on the market by the time you read this. As you can see from the data above, Neurontin's bioavailability tends to be an issue as you take more of it. I've seen other figures indicating even lower bioavailability of Neurontin (gabapentin). Maybe it's because Neurontin (gabapentin) pretty much bypasses your liver and gets to your brain through the L-amino acid pathways. Thus because Mouse and I are total freaks with food allergies and quite sensitive to those sorts of things, we probably get way more Neurontin (gabapentin) absorption than most people. This is just a wild-ass guess on our parts.

Neurontin (gabapentin) has helped Mouse with her restless leg syndrome, and may be providing her with some mood stabilization.

The whole question comes up, is Neurontin (gabapentin) worth a damn as a mood stabilizer? Well it certainly shouldn't be used first without some good reason, such as a comorbid chronic pain ailment or partial onset seizures. Basically the existing data show that Neurontin (gabapentin) isn't that good of a mood stabilizer. At least, not if other stuff seems to work. However, if nothing else is working, adding Neurontin to the mix can sometimes help, although apparently not if rapid cycling is involved. It has helped me. How can I tell? First I tried to see what life would be like without Neurontin (gabapentin). Boy was that a bad time. Since then I switched from 300mg four times a day to 400mg three times a day, and found it to be less effective. If I missed a dose I was more susceptible to breakthrough hypomanias or depressions. At 400mg four times a day my memory is a bit worse, but if I forget a dose (which is now more likely since my memory is worse; like, duh) I don't have a breakthrough event. The reports at Remedy Find and on the bipolar support groups follow the studies - generally useless for most people, but the one missing piece or the one drug that worked when all else failed for a small number of people.
Neurontin (gabapentin) can also be effective in treating panic/anxiety disorders. It's not as good as the benzodiazepines or the antipsychotics in that regard, but if you're not able to tolerate any medication from either of those classes, Neurontin (gabapentin) is certainly better than nothing. I've found it most helpful in dealing with my agoraphobia. It doesn't do squat for Mouse's anxiety. Like people in the one study referenced, Mouse found Neurontin (gabapentin) to aggravate her OCD.

It did start to work on my epilepsy once I got up to the 900mg a day level. Mouse told me the absence seizures were fewer (but they didn't vanish completely until Topamax (topiramate) was added to the cocktail) and the partial-complex events also decreased in frequency and severity. Again it took the addition of Topamax (topiramate) to finally deal with all of my epileptic symptoms. But Neurontin (gabapentin) is quite the helpful medication for me.

As for all the pain stuff, it has helped Mouse with her fibromyalgia, with both the pain and the quality of her sleep, but she hits a wall of side effects. Above 1,200mg a day her memory becomes too bad for her to function. At 1,200mg a day Neurontin (gabapentin) helps a lot, but it could help more were it not for the memory issues. Other people we know taking it for chronic pain have reported a mixed bag of results, some positive some where nothing happened. The people posting at Remedy Find report along similar lines, with a few noting intolerable side effects.

Additionally Neurontin (gabapentin) has been studied and used for things like agitation in dementia patients, cocaine dependency and cravings, and alcohol withdrawal.

It all comes down to being literally able to stomach this stuff. Neurontin (gabapentin) is an effective medication for some people, a worthless sugar pill for others, and an evil source of side effects for a small unfortunate few. The real problem seems to have been Parke-Davis' allegedly sleazy marketing practices, which prevented people from getting the correct medications and has led to an anti-anticonvulsant backlash. They took a good thing and oversold it, screwing it up for everyone else. Expect the backlash to be worse now that Pfizer has settled for over 400 million dollars.

Now the Pfizer has acquired Parke-Davis and Neurontin (gabapentin) is to be superseded by pregablin, who knows what things will be like? Will pregablin be used for as many off-label applications? Will it be more or even less effective in some applications? Neurontin (gabapentin) will still be on the market, but things will be different after 2003.

Like other anticonvulsants, Neurontin (gabapentin) carries the rare but possible risk for aplastic anemia. Mouse had to deal with it when trying Lamictal (lamotrigine), and we know one person who had to stop taking Tegretol (carbamazepine USP) because of it. So if you see lots of weird bruises that you can't explain, see your doctor immediately!

There is a company named Riecken's that makes a product out of a material
called PQ, which is a gel like material, and the product is similar to what
you are describing. The insert has a groove/channel below the plantar
fascia that the company calls the "magic slot". I'm not advocating the
product, but I've used some of this company's products for ballet dancers
and have been happy with the products. The inserts will certainly do you no
harm and are inexpensive at $29.99. To access the website go to
www.footcomfortworld.com and go to the area that sells products and click on

thanks for the post about that thread

but thats about the channel for the plantar fascia band that pops out when you dorsiflex the foot... it is almost the same principal(not to put the pressure on the tender area)
i saw orthotics like that somewhere on the web

like i said... its a new idea for me at least
and i dont know how this all makes sense

thats why i wanted to see if anyone had any similiar experience with this method
or has any idea to add on

Richard thanks for the opinion
i am aware that there are oher measures that need to taken also when dealin with PF and that orthosis is just one of them
thanks again

i hope some other people drop on with a thougth or two

john king - It is very, very hard. You really have to find strength and courage inside yourself - and sometimes that is very hard to do. That is one reason that I look for things to read, programs to view and so on that are inspiring, that tap into any brave part that needs "bucking up."
That is why I have been recommending the Discovery channel program "Rebuilt" - because the people there have pain and incredible challenges and yet they are trying, and trying again, and trying again. I read stories, watch movies that demonstrate the courage - sometimes unbelievable courage - of the human spirit. "Into Thin Air" is one, "The Perfect Storm" and many others.....you would have to discover what things move you in that way. On the flip side of the coin, I look hard for things that make me laugh. I have always loved to laugh but at times in my life when things seemed really hard, laughing was especially important. Whether it's TV, books, movies, friends who are funny to you, family.... wherever you can find opportunities to laugh, grab them and laugh!
And finally, I also allow myself to cry - really cry - and just give into being sad and down and feeling sorry for myself. Sometimes it provides a "relaxation" of the emotional side so that you can then kind of come back to a stronger self, more ready to be brave again - and keep on trying. That's what life is all about and no one escapes hard times - but look for the ways in which those who muster up some courage differ from those who fold.... and you can find it in yourself, too. It helps not to feel alone as well; whether it's your faith or family or friends or your PT or your friends here, it helps to know that you are not alone. I am especially fascinated and interested in stories of (used to be only) men in combat and how they do it - face each day and night, knowing that there will be no break, no vacation, knowing that each day could be worse than the last.....and yet they do it. I draw on that kind of courage, while being amazed by it. You're going through a bad patch, but there will be good ones ahead and there may be other bad ones and more good ones... and so it goes. It's life and it's your job to find your best self and live it!
Best wishes -

Re: Petty shoe whine View Thread

Suzanne -
Well, yes, I knew it was petty - that's how I identified it and I know so well that it is very low on the scale of important matters. I am also nursing a broken arm which makes not being able to wear pretty shoes a small issue - but, even knowing how petty it is, it is still something that affects one's "morale" every so often. Not a big deal, by any standard, especially since I don't have to dress up for work - and I sympathize with those people who do..... just an awareness of a feeling. I do think we are all entitled to feel what we feel without having to justify those feelings, as so many of us here have vented or shared or testified to our own experiences, from the major to the petty. I was in no way - mainly because I don't even think in this way - in no way trying to compare that observation with any of life's serious issues. The range of ways in which the body's afflictions can affect one's life is wide and long and runs from the petty to the severe. I recognize the difference and would never equate the two.

Even a broken arm is nothing compared to what your friend and her husband are facing. That is very sad, Suzanne, and I'm sorry when anyone goes through something like that. It is hard to even imagine what they must be feeling tonight and what they will experience in the coming weeks and beyond. I don't know if you saw my post of last week about a television program that is new to me? It is on Discovery channel on Wednesday nights and is called "Rebuilt". It is a wonderful, inspiring program about a family that makes/fits prostheses for people who need them and the life stories of the people who wear the prostheses and the family who have this business. It has some of the best elements of television - really extraordinary stories, uplifting, informative, educational, engrossing...
I have only seen one episode and it's been on for a few months, but I highly recommend it. You might have an even greater personal interest in it given your friend and her husband's situation. I'm so sorry about them and, no doubt, your worry and concern for them. I hope they get through this as well as possible and find ways to live satisfying lives.

When I was a teenager, I was a lifeguard and our boss was an older man who had had had both of his legs amputated and he wore prostheses all the time - except for noon and evenings when the pool was closed. He would remove the prostheses and dive into the pool and he was the strongest, most beautiful swimmer you would ever see. He was a fine man and would have been in any case, but he was also a good example of just living life with the cards one is dealt in the best way one can. When I see the televised stories of the soldiers who have been so horribly damaged in these explosions (and most recently the ways in which our government continues to abandon them - this was reported just after watching Bush and the Congress applauding each other over his phrases about "supporting the troops" and all the rest!), they are at once profiles in courage and also heartbreaking. These young, vigorous, strong people whose lives are forever changed - just hard to imagine. Well, watch "Rebuilt" and be inspired!

He died in the late 70s's at Cheyenne AFB where I had also been stationed. One Uncle joined the Canadian Army before America entered WW II and was killed in 1942. One uncle sank by Japanese submarine but survived with burns. Another Uncle made through the war. It seems I was destined to be in the military. Saw one of my first planes when a trainer from the Tuskeegee Flying School crash landed in my home town.

I have seen that show, and find it quite interesting. The host is so intertaining!

There is another show I just discovered not long ago, it's called Airline. I'm not sure of the channel, I think it's something like Discovery...anyway, check your listing.
It's filmed in airports across America, and shows actual situations that travelers face when they travel by air. It's a very interesting show.
One in particular.....can't remember which airport it was, but people were about to board an airliner when a bad storm approached, something happened to the plane, and it was taken out of commission, they brought another plane, and while passengers were loading this one, it was struck by lightening! Passengers were once again taken off that plane and it was taken out of commisssion as well.
They show what the ticket agents deal with....rude customers, people that are drunk and wanting to get on a flight.....you name it.
When I watch this program, I can relate to a lot of the situations.
I got a little annoyed once while flying back from Seattle......there was a strange acting man sitting next to me, he was intoxicated, and during the entire flight, this man knawed on his forearm!! It was as if he were chewing on a ear of corn, I couldn't believe what I was seeing, of course I tried not to look, but when you're that close on a plane, you can't miss it. He gave the flight attendant $20 and asked for liquor, knowing his condition, she gave it to him! He drank the entire flight, when we landed, the man could barely stand up! I was shocked that they would serve him more drinks, and complained.....didn't do any good.
There was another situation on that same flight.....a man sitting right across the isle from me was working on his laptop, he was looking at websites that showed how to make explosives, and bombs. Keep in mind, this was not long after 911. So, needless to say, lots of people were keeping an eye on this guy. Several concerned passengers, mostly men, grouped at the back of the plane and talked to the flight attendant. Their plan was to keep an eye on this fella, and if he got up they were going to position themselves close to him. Well, he did get up, and immediately these 2 big men walked behind him as he approached the front of the plane, he went into the restroom and they stood there next to the door as if they were waiting in line, the guy came out and went back to his seat, the men kept an eye on him the entire flight, thank the Lord he never tried anything. It was comforting to know that there were men on that flight ready and willing to do whatever it took to keep us all safe.
I was never in my life so glad when we finally landed and I could get off that plane!
Anyone have a flying story they'd like to share????

Happy trails....

Has anyone else experienced that Birks can be comfortable for several months, and then notice that they are irritating the arch? I've worn mine all summer with great pain relief, but now after about an hour they feel like the arch is too high.

It's almost like they continued molding past the point that they should have. Is that possible?

Richard's explanation of the channel created for the fascia is intriguing. Maybe THAT'S what I need. :-/

Believe it or not, that is a good trick of the trade. On some people, you can have them extend their toes in the air, and you will see the large band just pop out. Some others you can not see this. In the case of the pop out, that is exactly how we will take their foot impression. It creates a channel and allows the orthosis to be more comfortable to wear.

Good Luck!!!

got myself a new orthotic today. the moulded type. this time the guy made a channel in the orthotic where my plantar touches it. this way I get the arch support but not pressure on plantar. some days when plantar feels hurt a high arch-support orthotics put pressure on plantar and it hurts more.

ah, I just though this was a smart thing.

Oh, I think, without a doubt, that our society fosters it. Take a look at children's toys. I don't remember how old your children are; I do remember they are adoreable but I know they aren't toddlers anymore. I have two grand nieces and a grand nephew. I am appalled at the selection of toys that are available. When they hit a button, the toy blinks, talks, rings, buzzes or does something. Very few toys require the use of imagination or require any concentration.

And then we have children's television which has gone from bad to worse although I must admit I'm not up on PBS anymore, exept if I'm channel surfing and see Sesame Street, which I absolutely love.

I don't know what it's like in other countries but I know here, too many parents both have to work, or want to work, and when they get home, the easiest way to take care of the chid while they make dinner is to plank them in front of the TV set. Not all parents who work - I'm not making a rash generalization but many parents. And who can blame them? They are so stressed.

And then we've got video games and computers. Are they as popular in Europe? I don't know but I think that we foster this idea of immediate gratification in our children, starting at a very young age and I believe this has led to an epidemic of children with short attention spans.

It's just my opinion, of course, and based on what several elementary teachers tell me about their classes. Maybe it's more prevalent in the NE because we don't have as good weather as other areas but all I know is that nothing would have kept my children in, summer or winter, if they could go outside and play instead. And I wanted to stay home with them and was fortunate that I could do so and was thus able to monitor their television habits very closely. And I loved reading to them! I think technology is wonderful but I think it's being over used in the case of children's play things.

Kathy,
1.I could be wrong but when those Pharm.Reps. beat down doctors doors you can bet they are pushing what their company sells. Not certain but doctors could be getting a nice perk based on the amount of RX he/she writes for that manufactuer's drugs.

2. Hospital TV channels have become a new way for Pharm. Co. to advertise their drugs. Who better to sell to than the person laying in front of the TV sick? Their doc. comes in and the patient asks him for the XYZ pill he saw advertised. That doctor covers his butt by RXing the pill so patient S doesn't file a law suit because he was denied treatment.

3. I have to disagree with you about it being societies fault that younger generations are taking other peoples drugs. I put the blame on the parents if there are parents in the home and on those that are not there because they refuse the responsibility of raising those children and the young people themselves who swallow the drugs. They should be smart enough to know that taking someone elses medicine is not a universal cure for their problems be they physical or physical. This trend may be a problem in our society, but I believe individuals are at fault on this one. They need to step up to the plate, education, provide direction and not only teach responsibility but expect it from their children.

4. I think we are seeing the product of what we've sowed when people decided to lower their standards, rewrite history, tried to become politically correct, changed their morals, dropped all values, turned their backs on Religion and refused to take individual responsibility for anything.

5. I think we are seeing more people in general on antidepresent drugs because they have become the new antiobiotics of life. If drug companies can't sell antiobiotics because they are now being treated like a controlled substance they have to push something else. Antidepresents are the next gold mind for them. The drugs are not addictive, and it's fashionable to take them because all of Hollywood is on them. It's sort of like the chubby lady who is wearing a T-shirt that says "over came anorexia." Your happy for her efforts.

I almost never remember to watch her but when I do, it's because I'm channel surfing during the eleven o'clock news, no doubt because they're showing a stupid story that I don't think is news. I'll have to find out which station she's on and tape it and see if I can find you, Judy.

I quite enjoy her when I remember she's on. She's a funny lady. Her show also airs sometime during the morning but I never think to turn TV on in the morning.

I'll be interested in what you think of it. No doubt, you've been to other live shows but I've only been to one, in NYC. It was back when I was about twelve and I was amazed that they actually had someone holding up large signs that either said, "Applaud" or "Laugh." I don't remember what show it was. I know it was a quiz show of some kind.

As long as you brought up religion Scott- be reminded- in case you have forgotten or possibly never learned because your mind was full of batting averages, that Voltaire said "religion was born the first time a charlatan met a knave walking down the road". Religion is the opiate of the mindless, it is a way of blaming something other than your own failings for your plight- "O' my god why did this happen to me"?

I do not think it as much being poor as being uneducated. Education is at the root of being poor.Many of these people probably never looked at the weather channel or were able to assess for themselves it is time to get out of Dodge. Until we find somewat to educate the people in this nation at the minimum of a "real" high school education we will always have the poor, high crime, and generations of people on welfare. We thought we were doing a good thing back in the 60's when we built public housing that later became the projects. We provided free food, free everything and soon many lost the incentive to work. They lived among thousands just like themselves. Good intentions had terrible unintended consequences. During the latter part of the depression President Roosevelt established the CCC or Civilian Conservation Corps. It provide jobs, uniforms, food and gave these men something really worth while to do in the public works sector much of which we still see today. It also provided them with some dignity. As a small child I thought these guys looked cool in their green uniforms. We actually had two of them live in our home for something like $.50 a day. They were doing a lot of work at that time in my part of the world for the Tennessee Valley Authority in western North Carolina.

Back in the 70's the Corps of Engineers wanted to plug the only opening in Lake Ponchatrain that opens to the ocean. This was to prevent a storm surge from entering the Lake and causing an overflow of the levees and or failure of the dykes. Environmentalist and sports fisherman fought this tooth and nail and the government could never get it done. Many engineers think this is still the thing to do but still expect the environmentalist and sports fisherman to fight it regardless of what has happened. You can be assured it will be part of the investigation and you can be sure the same people will oppose it. It has been brought up by the Corps of Engineers with every administration and Congress since the early 70's. Environmentalist thought the money could have been better used elsewhere. Environmentalist do a lot of good but they also impede progress in many cases.

Just watching a guy in NOLA being interviewed down in the murky water in front of his house. Said he will not leave. Lots of infighting going on in the area between some of Representatives in NOLA, the Mayor, the Police Chief, and Commander of the LA National Guard. Many are now saying the plan to use the Superdome as a shelter was ill thought out. Finger pointing going on all over the place. However, good Americans and the Military are moving fast and furious and I continue to be amazed that after only a week we have almost cleared the city and people are being relocated to safety with food and healthcare. There will be homes for these people. It want and could not happen in one week or one month no matter what plan you have. But it is up and running. Think about it; large ocean going cruise ships are being used for homes, military bases, a call for thousands of mobile homes to be set up, I have seen people giving their rent homes for free to refugees for as long as they want, people and the military in mass are moving in to clean up. One of the greatest mass cleanups in history is well underway after only one week. We cannot bring back the dead but as Winston Churchill said in 1940 when things looked terrible for Britain "This may be our finest hour".

I think Chuchills entire speech is worth a read as I see events and lessons in it comparable to the tragedy before us. It is long but worth looking back. You do not know where you are going if you do not understand where you have been:


At 5:30 a.m. on May 10, 1940, Germany began a massive attack against Holland, Belgium, Luxembourg, and France. Defending those countries were the British Expeditionary Force (B.E.F.) along with the French, Belgian, and Dutch armies.


The Germans had 136 divisions while the Allies had 149. The Allies had more tanks, however the Germans had more combat planes. Although the opposing armies seemed evenly matched, there was a crucial difference in command structures and battle tactics. The Germans had an aggressive battle plan and utilized modern communications such as radio. German tank generals including Heinz Guderian and Erwin Rommel commanded from the front lines, improvising when necessary, and urging their troops onward. Morale was very high.


The Allies assumed a defensive, World War I style battle plan centered around the Maginot Line, a string of defensive forts along the French-German border, south of the Ardennes forest, stretching from Luxembourg to Switzerland.


Allied generals were usually nowhere near the front and even relied on hand-delivered messages. The high speed mechanized German 'blitzkrieg' continually caught the Allied armies off-guard. In many cases, Allied generals ordered troops to defend areas which had already been overtaken by the Germans.


The Maginot Line was simply bypassed by German Panzer tanks which attacked through the 'impassable' Ardennes forest. The Germans then circled north and surrounded the Allied armies in Belgium. The 'Miracle at Dunkirk' occurred next as 338,000 British and French soldiers were picked up from the coastline by over a thousand vessels, including Royal Navy destroyers and a flotilla of smaller boats of every shape and size.


After just a few weeks of battle, Hitler's armies had experienced stunning victories on all fronts. Holland, Luxembourg and Belgium had capitulated by the end of May. Paris fell on June 14. Three days later, France sued for peace.


In this speech to the House of Commons, Prime Minister Winston Churchill discusses the disastrous turn of events in Europe with the realization that Britain now stands alone against the seemingly unstoppable German military juggernaut.




I spoke the other day of the colossal military disaster which occurred when the French High Command failed to withdraw the northern Armies from Belgium at the moment when they knew that the French front was decisively broken at Sedan and on the Meuse. This delay entailed the loss of fifteen or sixteen French divisions and threw out of action for the critical period the whole of the British Expeditionary Force. Our Army and 120,000 French troops were indeed rescued by the British Navy from Dunkirk but only with the loss of their cannon, vehicles and modern equipment. This loss inevitably took some weeks to repair, and in the first two of those weeks the battle in France has been lost. When we consider the heroic resistance made by the French Army against heavy odds in this battle, the enormous losses inflicted upon the enemy and the evident exhaustion of the enemy, it may well be the thought that these 25 divisions of the best-trained and best-equipped troops might have turned the scale. However, General Weygand had to fight without them. Only three British divisions or their equivalent were able to stand in the line with their French comrades. They have suffered severely, but they have fought well. We sent every man we could to France as fast as we could re-equip and transport their formations.


I am not reciting these facts for the purpose of recrimination. That I judge to be utterly futile and even harmful. We cannot afford it. I recite them in order to explain why it was we did not have, as we could have had, between twelve and fourteen British divisions fighting in the line in this great battle instead of only three. Now I put all this aside. I put it on the shelf, from which the historians, when they have time, will select their documents to tell their stories. We have to think of the future and not of the past. This also applies in a small way to our own affairs at home. There are many who would hold an inquest in the House of Commons on the conduct of the Governments--and of Parliaments, for they are in it, too--during the years which led up to this catastrophe. They seek to indict those who were responsible for the guidance of our affairs. This also would be a foolish and pernicious process. There are too many in it. Let each man search his conscience and search his speeches. I frequently search mine.


Of this I am quite sure, that if we open a quarrel between the past and the present, we shall find that we have lost the future. Therefore, I cannot accept the drawing of any distinctions between members of the present Government. It was formed at a moment of crisis in order to unite all the Parties and all sections of opinion. It has received the almost unanimous support of both Houses of Parliament. Its members are going to stand together, and, subject to the authority of the House of Commons, we are going to govern the country and fight the war. It is absolutely necessary at a time like this that every Minister who tries each day to do his duty shall be respected; and their subordinates must know that their chiefs are not threatened men, men who are here today and gone tomorrow, but that their directions must be punctually and faithfully obeyed. Without this concentrated power we cannot face what lies before us. I should not think it would be very advantageous for the House to prolong this debate this afternoon under conditions of public stress. Many facts are not clear that will be clear in a short time. We are to have a secret session on Thursday, and I should think that would be a better opportunity for the many earnest expressions of opinion which members will desire to make and for the House to discuss vital matters without having everything read the next morning by our dangerous foes.


The disastrous military events which have happened during the past fortnight have not come to me with any sense of surprise. Indeed, I indicated a fortnight ago as clearly as I could to the House that the worst possibilities were open; and I made it perfectly clear then that whatever happened in France would make no difference to the resolve of Britain and the British Empire to fight on, if necessary for years, if necessary alone.


During the last few days we have successfully brought off the great majority of the troops we had on the line of communication in France; and seven-eighths of the troops we have sent to France since the beginning of the war--that is to say, about 350,000 out of 400,000 men--are safely back in this country. Others are still fighting with the French, and fighting with considerable success in their local encounters against the enemy. We have also brought back a great mass of stores, rifles and munitions of all kinds which had been accumulated in France during the last nine months.


We have, therefore, in this Island today a very large and powerful military force. This force comprises all our best-trained and our finest troops, including scores of thousands of those who have already measured their quality against the Germans and found themselves at no disadvantage. We have under arms at the present time in this Island over a million and a quarter men. Behind these we have the Local Defense Volunteers, numbering half a million, only a portion of whom, however, are yet armed with rifles or other firearms. We have incorporated into our Defense Forces every man for whom we have a weapon. We expect very large additions to our weapons in the near future, and in preparation for this we intend forthwith to call up, drill and train further large numbers. Those who are not called up, or else are employed during the vast business of munitions production in all its branches--and their ramifications are innumerable--will serve their country best by remaining at their ordinary work until they receive their summons. We have also over here Dominions armies. The Canadians had actually landed in France, but have now been safely withdrawn, much disappointed, but in perfect order, with all their artillery and equipment. And these very high-class forces from the Dominions will now take part in the defense of the Mother Country.


Lest the account which I have given of these large forces should raise the question: Why did they not take part in the great battle in France? I must make it clear that, apart from the divisions training and organizing at home, only twelve divisions were equipped to fight upon a scale which justified their being sent abroad. And this was fully up to the number which the French had been led to expect would be available in France at the ninth month of the war. The rest of our forces at home have a fighting value for home defense which will, of course, steadily increase every week that passes. Thus, the invasion of Great Britain would at this time require the transportation across the sea of hostile armies on a very large scale, and after they had been so transported they would have to be continually maintained with all the masses of munitions and supplies which are required for continuous battle--as continuous battle it will surely be.


Here is where we come to the Navy--and after all, we have a Navy. Some people seem to forget that we have a Navy. We must remind them. For the last thirty years I have been concerned in discussions about the possibilities of oversea invasion, and I took the responsibility on behalf of the Admiralty, at the beginning of the last war, of allowing all regular troops to be sent out of the country. That was a very serious step to take, because our Territorials had only just been called up and were quite untrained. Therefore, this Island was for several months particularly denuded of fighting troops. The Admiralty had confidence at that time in their ability to prevent a mass invasion even though at that time the Germans had a magnificent battle fleet in the proportion of 10 to 16, even though they were capable of fighting a general engagement every day and any day, whereas now they have only a couple of heavy ships worth speaking of--the Scharnhorst and the Gneisenau. We are also told that the Italian Navy is to come out and gain sea superiority in these waters. If they seriously intend it, I shall only say that we shall be delighted to offer Signor Mussolini a free and safeguarded passage through the Strait of Gibraltar in order that he may play the part to which he aspires. There is a general curiosity in the British Fleet to find out whether the Italians are up to the level they were at in the last war or whether they have fallen off at all.


Therefore, it seems to me that as far as sea-borne invasion on a great scale is concerned, we are far more capable of meeting it today than we were at many periods in the last war and during the early months of this war, before our other troops were trained, and while the B.E.F. had proceeded abroad. Now, the Navy have never pretended to be able to prevent raids by bodies of 5,000 or 10,000 men flung suddenly across and thrown ashore at several points on the coast some dark night or foggy morning. The efficacy of sea power, especially under modern conditions, depends upon the invading force being of large size; It has to be of large size, in view of our military strength, to be of any use. If it is of large size, then the Navy have something they can find and meet and, as it were, bite on. Now, we must remember that even five divisions, however lightly equipped, would require 200 to 250 ships, and with modern air reconnaissance and photography it would not be easy to collect such an armada, marshal it, and conduct it across the sea without any powerful naval forces to escort it; and there would be very great possibilities, to put it mildly, that this armada would be intercepted long before it reached the coast, and all the men drowned in the sea or, at the worst blown to pieces with their equipment while they were trying to land. We also have a great system of minefields, recently strongly reinforced, through which we alone know the channels. If the enemy tries to sweep passages through these minefields, it will be the task of the Navy to destroy the mine-sweepers and any other forces employed to protect them. There should be no difficulty in this, owing to our great superiority at sea.


Those are the regular, well-tested, well-proved arguments on which we have relied during many years in peace and war. But the question is whether there are any new methods by which those solid assurances can be circumvented. Odd as it may seem, some attention has been given to this by the Admiralty, whose prime duty and responsibility is to destroy any large sea-borne expedition before it reaches, or at the moment when it reaches, these shores. It would not be a good thing for me to go into details of this. It might suggest ideas to other people which they have not thought of, and they would not be likely to give us any of their ideas in exchange. All I will say is that untiring vigilance and mind-searching must be devoted to the subject, because the enemy is crafty and cunning and full of novel treacheries and stratagems. The House may be assured that the utmost ingenuity is being displayed and imagination is being evoked from large numbers of competent officers, well-trained in tactics and thoroughly up to date, to measure and counterwork novel possibilities. Untiring vigilance and untiring searching of the mind is being, and must be, devoted to the subject, because, remember, the enemy is crafty and there is no dirty trick he will not do.


Some people will ask why, then, was it that the British Navy was not able to prevent the movement of a large army from Germany into Norway across the Skagerrak? But the conditions in the Channel and in the North Sea are in no way like those which prevail in the Skagerrak. In the Skagerrak, because of the distance, we could give no air support to our surface ships, and consequently, lying as we did close to the enemy's main air power, we were compelled to use only our submarines. We could not enforce the decisive blockade or interruption which is possible from surface vessels. Our submarines took a heavy toll but could not, by themselves, prevent the invasion of Norway. In the Channel and in the North Sea, on the other hand, our superior naval surface forces, aided by our submarines, will operate with close and effective air assistance.


This brings me, naturally, to the great question of invasion from the air, and of the impending struggle between the British and German Air Forces. It seems quite clear that no invasion on a scale beyond the capacity of our land forces to crush speedily is likely to take place from the air until our Air Force has been definitely overpowered. In the meantime, there may be raids by parachute troops and attempted descents of airborne soldiers. We should be able to give those gentry a warm reception both in the air and on the ground, if they reach it in any condition to continue the dispute. But the great question is: Can we break Hitler's air weapon? Now, of course, it is a very great pity that we have not got an Air Force at least equal to that of the most powerful enemy within striking distance of these shores. But we have a very powerful Air Force which has proved itself far superior in quality, both in men and in many types of machine, to what we have met so far in the numerous and fierce air battles which have been fought with the Germans. In France, where we were at a considerable disadvantage and lost many machines on the ground when they were standing round the aerodromes, we were accustomed to inflict in the air losses of as much as two and two-and-a-half to one. In the fighting over Dunkirk, which was a sort of no-man's-land, we undoubtedly beat the German Air Force, and gained the mastery of the local air, inflicting here a loss of three or four to one day after day. Anyone who looks at the photographs which were published a week or so ago of the re-embarkation, showing the masses of troops assembled on the beach and forming an ideal target for hours at a time, must realize that this re-embarkation would not have been possible unless the enemy had resigned all hope of recovering air superiority at that time and at that place.


In the defense of this Island the advantages to the defenders will be much greater than they were in the fighting around Dunkirk. We hope to improve on the rate of three or four to one which was realized at Dunkirk; and in addition all our injured machines and their crews which get down safely--and, surprisingly, a very great many injured machines and men do get down safely in modern air fighting--all of these will fall, in an attack upon these Islands, on friendly soil and live to fight another day; whereas all the injured enemy machines and their complements will be total losses as far as the war is concerned.


During the great battle in France, we gave very powerful and continuous aid to the French Army, both by fighters and bombers; but in spite of every kind of pressure we never would allow the entire metropolitan fighter strength of the Air Force to be consumed. This decision was painful, but it was also right, because the fortunes of the battle in France could not have been decisively affected even if we had thrown in our entire fighter force. That battle was lost by the unfortunate strategical opening, by the extraordinary and unforseen power of the armored columns, and by the great preponderance of the German Army in numbers. Our fighter Air Force might easily have been exhausted as a mere accident in that great struggle, and then we should have found ourselves at the present time in a very serious plight. But as it is, I am happy to inform the House that our fighter strength is stronger at the present time relatively to the Germans, who have suffered terrible losses, than it has ever been; and consequently we believe ourselves possessed of the capacity to continue the war in the air under better conditions than we have ever experienced before. I look forward confidently to the exploits of our fighter pilots--these splendid men, this brilliant youth--who will have the glory of saving their native land, their island home, and all they love, from the most deadly of all attacks.


There remains, of course, the danger of bombing attacks, which will certainly be made very soon upon us by the bomber forces of the enemy. It is true that the German bomber force is superior in numbers to ours; but we have a very large bomber force also, which we shall use to strike at military targets in Germany without intermission. I do not at all underrate the severity of the ordeal which lies before us; but I believe our countrymen will show themselves capable of standing up to it, like the brave men of Barcelona, and will be able to stand up to it, and carry on in spite of it, at least as well as any other people in the world. Much will depend upon this; every man and every woman will have the chance to show the finest qualities of their race, and render the highest service to their cause. For all of us, at this time, whatever our sphere, our station, our occupation or our duties, it will be a help to remember the famous lines:


He nothing common did or mean, Upon that memorable scene.


I have thought it right upon this occasion to give the House and the country some indication of the solid, practical grounds upon which we base our inflexible resolve to continue the war. There are a good many people who say, 'Never mind. Win or lose, sink or swim, better die than submit to tyranny--and such a tyranny.' And I do not dissociate myself from them. But I can assure them that our professional advisers of the three Services unitedly advise that we should carry on the war, and that there are good and reasonable hopes of final victory. We have fully informed and consulted all the self-governing Dominions, these great communities far beyond the oceans who have been built up on our laws and on our civilization, and who are absolutely free to choose their course, but are absolutely devoted to the ancient Motherland, and who feel themselves inspired by the same emotions which lead me to stake our all upon duty and honor. We have fully consulted them, and I have received from their Prime Ministers, Mr. Mackenzie King of Canada, Mr. Menzies of Australia, Mr. Fraser of New Zealand, and General Smuts of South Africa--that wonderful man, with his immense profound mind, and his eye watching from a distance the whole panorama of European affairs--I have received from all these eminent men, who all have Governments behind them elected on wide franchises, who are all there because they represent the will of their people, messages couched in the most moving terms in which they endorse our decision to fight on, and declare themselves ready to share our fortunes and to persevere to the end. That is what we are going to do.


We may now ask ourselves: In what way has our position worsened since the beginning of the war? It has worsened by the fact that the Germans have conquered a large part of the coast line of Western Europe, and many small countries have been overrun by them. This aggravates the possibilities of air attack and adds to our naval preoccupations. It in no way diminishes, but on the contrary definitely increases, the power of our long-distance blockade. Similarly, the entrance of Italy into the war increases the power of our long-distance blockade. We have stopped the worst leak by that. We do not know whether military resistance will come to an end in France or not, but should it do so, then of course the Germans will be able to concentrate their forces, both military and industrial, upon us. But for the reasons I have given to the House these will not be found so easy to apply. If invasion has become more imminent, as no doubt it has, we, being relieved from the task of maintaining a large army in France, have far larger and more efficient forces to meet it.


If Hitler can bring under his despotic control the industries of the countries he has conquered, this will add greatly to his already vast armament output. On the other hand, this will not happen immediately, and we are now assured of immense, continuous and increasing support in supplies and munitions of all kinds from the United States; and especially of aeroplanes and pilots from the Dominions and across the oceans coming from regions which are beyond the reach of enemy bombers.


I do not see how any of these factors can operate to our detriment on balance before the winter comes; and the winter will impose a strain upon the Nazi regime, with almost all Europe writhing and starving under its cruel heel, which, for all their ruthlessness, will run them very hard. We must not forget that from the moment when we declared war on the 3rd September it was always possible for Germany to turn all her Air Force upon this country, together with any other devices of invasion she might conceive, and that France could have done little or nothing to prevent her doing so. We have, therefore, lived under this danger, in principle and in a slightly modified form, during all these months. In the meanwhile, however, we have enormously improved our methods of defense, and we have learned what we had no right to assume at the beginning, namely, that the individual aircraft and the individual British pilot have a sure and definite superiority. Therefore, in casting up this dread balance sheet and contemplating our dangers with a disillusioned eye, I see great reason for intense vigilance and exertion, but none whatever for panic or despair.


During the first four years of the last war the Allies experienced nothing but disaster and disappointment. That was our constant fear: one blow after another, terrible losses, frightful dangers. Everything miscarried. And yet at the end of those four years the morale of the Allies was higher than that of the Germans, who had moved from one aggressive triumph to another, and who stood everywhere triumphant invaders of the lands into which they had broken. During that war we repeatedly asked ourselves the question: 'How are we going to win?' And no one was able ever to answer it with much precision, until at the end, quite suddenly, quite unexpectedly, our terrible foe collapsed before us, and we were so glutted with victory that in our folly we threw it away.


We do not yet know what will happen in France or whether the French resistance will be prolonged, both in France and in the French Empire overseas. The French Government will be throwing away great opportunities and casting adrift their future if they do not continue the war in accordance with their treaty obligations, from which we have not felt able to release them. The House will have read the historic declaration in which, at the desire of many Frenchmen--and of our own hearts--we have proclaimed our willingness at the darkest hour in French history to conclude a union of common citizenship in this struggle. However matters may go in France or with the French Government, or other French Governments, we in this Island and in the British Empire will never lose our sense of comradeship with the French people. If we are now called upon to endure what they have been suffering, we shall emulate their courage, and if final victory rewards our toils they shall share the gains, aye, and freedom shall be restored to all. We abate nothing of our just demands; not one jot or tittle do we recede. Czechs, Poles, Norwegians, Dutch, Belgians have joined their causes to our own. All these shall be restored.


What General Weygand called the Battle of France is over. I expect that the Battle of Britain is about to begin. Upon this battle depends the survival of Christian civilization. Upon it depends our own British life, and the long continuity of our institutions and our Empire. The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us.


Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this Island or lose the war. If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be free and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands. But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science.


Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, 'This was their finest hour.' (RealAudio :22)

In an extreme act of looting, one group actually stole a bus to escape ravaged areas in Louisiana.

About 100 people packed into the stolen bus. They were the first to enter the Houston Astrodome, but they weren't exactly welcomed.

The big yellow school bus wasn't expected or approved to pass through the stadium's gates. Randy Nathan, who was on the bus, said they were desperate to get out of town.

"If it werent for him right there," he said, "we'd still be in New Orleans underwater. He got the bus for us."

Eighteen-year-old Jabbor Gibson jumped aboard the bus as it sat abandoned on a street in New Orleans and took control.

"I just took the bus and drove all the way here...seven hours straight,' Gibson admitted. "I hadn't ever drove a bus."

The teen packed it full of complete strangers and drove to Houston. He beat thousands of evacuees slated to arrive there.

"I t's better than being in New Orleans," said fellow passenger Albert McClaud, "we want to be somewhere where we're safe."

During a long and impatient delay, children popped their heads out of bus windows and mothers clutched their babies.

One 8-day-old infant spent the first days of his life surrounded by chaos. He's one of the many who are homeless and hungry.

Authorities eventually allowed the renegade passengers inside the dome. But the 18-year-old who ensured their safety could find himself in a world of trouble for stealing the school bus.

"I dont care if I get blamed for it ," Gibson said, "as long as I saved my people."


Now that is an incredible story. I've been so busy I hadn't had time to notice it. Sometimes extreme situations take extreme measure. And no matter what happens to that kid I know 100 people who will stand by him.

American Red Cross Report, 9/1/2005
As of Thursday morning, September 1st, the American Red Cross is continuing to absorb the full impact of this event and mobilizing human and material resources in mass to support relief operations.

As authorities clear the affected areas and rescue stranded citizens, Red Cross efforts are focused on sheltering and feeding thousands of evacuees. Efforts to evacuate the New Orleans Superdome, moving residents to the Astrodome in Houston, were suspended due to reports of violence and guns fired at emergency crews attempting to help with the evacuation.

Relief efforts have further been hampered by massive infrastructure failure as roadways are damaged or blocked, and electricity is expected to remain out for several weeks.

In Louisiana, Entergy reports as of 6:30 AM that 643,146 customers remain without electrical service.

Mississippi Power reports, after assessing three-fourths of the company's 8,000 miles of transmission and distribution lines, that approximately 70 percent will need to be rebuilt or repaired. They estimate it may be as long as four weeks to restore service in the worst hit areas to all customers who can receive it.

Hi Bev! Too bad we missed each other. Oh well - - Frank and I were glued to the Weather Channel anyway, to see what Katrina was going to do, at the time. We aren't in Huntsville any more. Frank has a very nice trailer in Troy, about an hour south of Montgomery, and I have all the comforts of home, here. Well, except it isn't MY home, but otherwise very nice.

So, shelter (and internet) are taken care of, and we have plenty to eat, and clothing. Frank and I feel just awful about those that didn't make it out, and don't have any of these necessities. He says it's "survivor's remorse" if there is such a thing.

Our main problems are not short term, but more long term. We both own homes in Metairie and have no idea if they exist any more, or not. My car is down there in my driveway. But really, these are all just things. We are well, healthy, and very, very lucky.

Thank you for all your offers and kindness.

John
I do remember you met my Dad. Boy has your family made the ultimate sacrifice !!!
I watch these history channel shows and still can't believe how tough our troops were. On the subject of terrorism here is my take on how we will win. The entire country must be part of the fight the same way we were in WW11. Not all can go to fight in Iraq but we all include me and you and everyone can be part of a service that MUST go thru training and all be a part of this fight. Entire this happens our country will be divided and Iraq will be a war on TV and TV only.
We will win but I think we need to be smarter and involve our entire country at some level.

Scott,
My father was also in the navy as a medical officier in WW 11. He was at the battle of Anzio. I was watching the history channel the other nite and I just couldn't believe the battle of Monte Carlo ?? This was the monestry where the Germans and Allies fought for months. It was just as tough as Normany. My Dad is 85 years old.

Re: Paying Dr's to post via advertisements? View Thread
Posted by Ralph on 8/19/05 at 09:03

When someone starts paying a doctor for his advice doesn't that convert the information being provided from free advice to the practice of medicine?

Reading the net this morning I found out that "Patient Channels" offered in some hospitals have become an "advertising" concern for the following reason:

"It's far from inconceivable that the Patient Channel or a similar operation could expand programming to include advertising for procedures that use a particular manufacturer's products. Already, there are manufacturer-sponsored Web sites that provide patients with useful information on a particular condition, and at the same time direct visitors to physicians who use the maker's products".

Obviously the worry is the patient getting a one sided view of a medical conditon, it's treatment and then only being directed to one manufacturers product.

Hi David, i have also replied to ur email address, but i thought that i would answer ur questions in the forum as it might help someone else at some point. Oh i did mean to say that ur exactly right about daytime TV, ive even got sky so ive got about 999 channels of complete rubbish!

With regards to having both TTS and CPS, i am not sure if its unusual to have both. Infact for years i didnt know what TTS was, only that it was getting gradually worse. The CPS started when i was pregnant then went away, and about a year ago started up again and didnt go away only got worse, to the point i just wanted to chop my hand off to stop the pain.

I'd been suffering badly for about a year with both complaints before i had the op done. It was done in the local hospital which is about 20 miles away and its called the Borders General Hospital as i live in the Scottish Borders.

Do you think that maybe i am doing things abit too fast?? i mean, if you are just down to one crutch and i'm not even using mine, perhaps i should be? Am i risking ruining the operation because i am maybe moving things faster? I know that my symptoms in my hand arent completely away at the moment, something i will have to look in to on another site i guess. I just dont know what to do for the best. anyone any suggestions....and dont say "shut up" :o)

I am not sure I agree with this. It is very simple for me not to read Elyse's messages when I don't want to. But blocking her does not allow me the choice. People asking for others to be blocked should get a life and learn how to selectively read through data. Pretty simple, kind of like changing the channel on the TV - duh.

A good friend of mine was in Savannah a few weeks ago and went to Paula's restaurant. She said there was a large line to even get in. She went to a a window or shop in the restaurant and bought some special dough which she mailed to us and from which we made biscuits. We lived in Albany from 1960-1963 so I guess Paula was around there somewhere but probably was a teen. I wonder if they even take reservations at her restaurants? I think her new husband is a tug boat capt.

You better get this checked out right away. This sounds like Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome (TTS), because PF doesn't usually include tingling or burning sensations. TTS has been described as the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome of the feet. I know very little about it but it sounds worse than PF. See a Pod right away.

Re: buying a new TV View Thread
Posted by John H on 5/23/05 at 11:44

I have a 27" JVC LCD High Definition TV which has a dramatic picture even without high definition. Direct TV has around 9 high definition channels full time and of course some other specials and sporting events. Probably does not weigh 25 lbs.

I also have a tube type Panasonc 34" high definition ready TV also. The picutre is great but not as great as a slim plasma or LCD. Both TV's require a separate high definition receiver as you would not want to lock yourself in with a built in high definition receiver. There are still competing forces for which high def format will survive and the separate receivers can acomodate all the ones that are competing. Dish and Direct will give you a free receiver if you sign up for their services The tube type TV's weigh a lot. A typically 34' tube type will weigh in at around 100 lbs. A slim plasma would weigh in at around 50 lbs or less.

Most high definition is transmitted in the long slim 16" x 9" format but still works fine on the standard tube type square TV. I think the law will require at some point that all TV's be in the 16 x 9 format to standardize transmissions and formats. Depending on how long you keep a TV you should keep that in mind. Remember the Beta and VHS shoot out for the VCR market. Same thing is going on with the high def format.

The high definition ready TV's give you a better picture no matter whether you watch high def or not so I would sure go in that direction. A 34' high def ready Panasonic cost around $1000 and was rated along with Sony as the best in the 34' catagory by Consumer Reports. Cable in our area has high definition and you have to rent their receiver if you have a high def TV.

What worked for me... View Thread
Posted by Patches on 5/14/05 at 08:58

I posted here a couple of months ago. I was commiserating with someone else and told them I'd write back if I had any luck. To give a quick background, I'm 38, female and used to run 3 miles a day until my pregnancy. I could not run during the pregnancy due to complications and consequently gained a lot of weight. I'm currently packing an extra 20 pounds on my 5' figure - ugg... After I had my baby I slowly started back into running and found myself sidelined by pf. I had the classic symptons of heel pain in the morning and it would especially be worse the morning after a run. Tried massage, wall stretches and rest - that only temporarily helped diminish the pain. Ok, so, I was desperate feeling like if I couldn't get rid of the pf I'd be fat forever. Searching the web I ran across the infrared heating pad ad - looked at many sites and finally ordered the Thermotex platinum (this particular one is a newer model and has a vibration feature). I was not cheap. Little over $225, I believe - ordered it from Canada. Now, I don't have a lot of money to blow - new baby and we are building a house BUT, like I said, I was desperate and didn't want to be a depressed, overweight mommy. I got the pad about a month ago. Tried it out - didn't seem too impressive. The heaters are hard boxes within a soft cushion so it's not flexible. To get the heat directly on my heel I pressed my foot against the pad which was pressed against the wall. It's a low heat and despite warnings not to do so I slept that way. It didn't work right away but now I genuinely feel A LOT better. Went for a run yesterday and this morning I got up and had no pain at all. I need to mention that I've also been using one of those circular foot stretchers before and after my run and also throughtout the day. I bought it on a whim for $20 at the Denver airport of all places...(Discovery Channel store, I think). I truly believe the combination of the two was the key. Ok, I also prayed about it too. And I wear Dansko clogs with a gel heel pad. I hope this helps someone - I know there are many variables to people and the sources of their pain. I had one doctor tell me that heat is contraindicted because the foot pain is part of an inflammation response - he had recommended ice or chilled golf balls - I like the doc but gambled with the heating pad because it is a low level heat and, frankly find icing unpleasant. I guess that's all I have. Good luck to everyone!

Re: TTS board View Thread
Posted by Julie on 5/08/05 at 09:39


I'm sorry you disagree, Scott (I probably shouldn't have used the word "intelligent".) I do think - I have always thought - that the provision of good information is more useful than "communication" that doesn't lead people closer to good solutions to their problems, and I think Ed was right to point to the problem.

I don't think the last part of your post makes sense, though. All the other boards are lively, with the doctors or pedorthist(s) and others participating and contributing helpful information and advice. Only the TTS board does not. And the social board is a great channel of communication for sufferers of every kind to talk to and support each other.

But I'm not going to press it; as I said before, I meant my suggestion constructively and thought it would be for the good of posters with TTS, but it's your website, and of course I accept your decision.

I strongly disagree with Julie. Just because answers on the TTS board are not as frequent or may not be as knowledgeable as on the other boards, I do not think that's a reason to close down a channel for TTS sufferer's to communicate. Just having a database of questions is important. The purpose of the boards is NOT meant to merely provide a forum for people to find good or professional answers to their questions. It's to allow people to communicate about the various topics even if everyone posting answers is ignorant (isn't that the gist of the claim against the TTS board - that no one "intelligent enough" is answering questions?). It doesn't matter if there is advice that is given that is bad. As with everything on the internet and in the doctor's office, each individual has to fend for themselves and take all advice, professional or not, carefully. I don't see any reason to close it down. By the same reasoning, none of the boards would have been created in the first place.

(For those of you who watch the cooking shows, you know the wonderful lady I am talking about) A group of my co-workers drove about 70 miles after school yesterday to buy her cookbook & have it signed at Joseph-Beth. The bookstore was expecting 300, instead over 1000 showed up & needless to say we didn't get our books signed. But she was just as funny & gracious in person as on her show, she actually had tears in her eyes when she walked into the large crowd because it was her largest turnout for a signing. My feet were killing me after standing for about an hour but it was worth the try. I really want to go back next week to have Silas House sign a book but my feet are screaming no way!

Okay, folks, I don't know about you but if you click on the pictures of our frequent posters, you'll see our resident, Brit, Julie. After watched some of Charles and Camilla's wedding, in the future, I shall picture Julie, directing her Yoga classes, with sprigs of wheat, twigs and feathers sticking out of the side of her head!

I know you were born an American, Julie, but I'm sure it's very important to you to be stylish as you go about your daily life so I'm sure you have several of those artful hats in your wardrobe. And they'd be so useful on your trips to Crete! :D

So few of us wear hats in the states that I haven't a clue what would or would not be fashionable at a wedding but I've never seen the types of hats that the women are wearing at the wedding! One girl wore a hat to my son's wedding but it was just a wide brim hat, really quite pretty. She just didn't know she needed all those funny feathery things sticking out of it!

I turned it off. I was only channel surfing to see if they were broadcasting the first half of the Masters so I could tape it for my husband. The golf circuit has been plagued by rain the entire season and it continues.

I posted something to say that I was back online but it's being checked for security reasons, so I don't know if this message will appear either but eventually I hope it does so that Julie can know of the new mental image I've formed of her! :)

Happy weekend, everyone!

WalkFits - no more pain! View Thread
Posted by Sher on 2/28/05 at 16:12

Hi everyone,

I have some great news – I believe that I’m either cured, or can at least keep the pain in check after all these years because of WalkFit orthotics. First, I have nothing to do with them and don’t get any money for talking about them. I have suffered with PF since 2000. I have seen podiatrists, I’ve bought and tried just about everything, I’ve spent tons of money on custom made orthotics, meds, Birks, Mephistos, casts, you name it.

I was up late one night surfing around the tv channels and I surfed right into WalkFit’s infomercial. It showed crowds of people standing on them and singing the praises for them. They also showed a stick figure graphic showing how when we walk badly, our whole body gets out of kilter. These orthotics of course fix all that. My husband changed the channel and I said go back I just want to see the rest of it. So we watched and laughed and said ‘yea right’, and I said what the heck it’s only $20. I was sure to call within the 20 minutes so I could get the extras and figured if they didn’t do anything it wouldn’t be that much lost. I called and ordered a pair and even paid the $9 extra to get them sooner.

The infomercial shows that these are special because they sort of spring and absorb the shock. They also have a low, medium, and high pad that you place into the orthotic. I thought that was kind of unique. They arrived and already had the low pad in them. I put them in my sneakers and then put them on. I thought there can’t possibly be anything more uncomfortable than that. I didn’t do much walking, just wore them around the house. After about an hour they didn’t feel quite as bad but I took them off and waited for my familiar friend, pain.

But there was no pain. I wasn’t believing this already, but I wore them to work, wore them for a couple hours and slipped on my Birks for the rest of the day. I wore the orthotics home, took them off and there was still no pain. I was starting to be amazed.

Ok, to make a long story short here it is 10 days later and the pain is still gone, and today I’m still not believing it. I get up out of bed every morning and there is no pain! I’m so happy I don’t know what to do, except to get to work and tell all my friends. I’ve offered to let them take the orthotics home to give them a try, but they just go ahead and order a pair. So there are a few of us who are still testing them out.

I swear, I don’t know what to do with myself because these $20 orthotics have given my life back. I don’t have to wear them all the time either, just an hour here and there. Yesterday I went shopping for a few hours and there is still no pain. I feel rejuvenated, I have much more energy, I sleep less, and I just feel like a new person. It’s awesome to be able to walk without pain. I’m in such a good mood and just want to be awake every second to enjoy my new life. I ordered another pair because I don’t ever ever ever want to be without these! It is so incredibly wonderful to walk without pain!!! If anyone is at the end of their rope, I’d say please just try these. Here’s the link: http://www.walkfit.com

Wendy -

I didn't know this - and this is bad news! I'll have to see if I can find this information. I've probably eaten my share of the stuff over the years; my mother used to spread it on our chests with a flannel cloth over it (I've never understood the combination but maybe the ritual is what mattered.... like tana leaves and mummies and garlic and vampires; in my family: hear of a germ in the region? Vicks vaporub and flannel.)
Thanks for the tip - I'll take it off the menu.

Flying in different countries is very different for pilots. In the U.S. when you make a Radar Approach in bad weather you are talking to a Radar Operator who is continually giving you heading and altitude changes with no break in communication on final approach. You are continuously making 1 degree course corrections and changes in altitude above and below glide path in increments of 10-20 feet. The Radar Operator basically does not stop talking on final approach all the way to touch down. In the UK the Radar Operators are very slow and deliberate. There may be 5 seconds between transmissions on final approach. To a pilot this can seem like an eternity when you have become accustomed to the fast talking American operators. You wonder if your radio has gone out. The Scots are even slower than the Brits. Safety wise it really makes no difference as you stay on glide path and course. After a few trips you become accustomed to the differences. It is also difficult at first to learn all the various accents you encounter in Europe. My first few trips I thought they were speaking in a foreign language. Of course all altitudes and temps in Europe are given in metric so you have to accustom your brain to this. In France I have been cleared for take off with fog/rain with no further instructions as what altitude to fly to or heading changes to make after lift off. This is never done in the U.S. You always have specific instructions when given permission for takeoff such as " You are cleared for take off. Climb to 1000 feet and turn right to heading 270 degrees and contact New York Departure on channel 243.0" You then repeat this exactly back to the tower and take off. In France if my radio went out after lift off I would more or less be on my own if I had no take off instructions. I hope these procedures have changed and imagine they have. Passengers would be supprised at what goes on up front sometimes. Flying the north atlantic we often would develop St Elmos Fire on the propeller tips in bad weather. A ring of fire would develop on the tips of all four engine propellers. This would always get the passengers excited. On the pilots windshield you could get sparkling electricity fire spots. The A/C ducts on the pilots and copilots sides could sometimes sen a shot of something liike lightning all the way across the cockpit. Not dangerous but in the middle of a dark night in weather it got your attention. With jets now flyingnear 40,000 feet across the Atlantic you do not get to experience those fun days.

I agree with you, Wendy. Another point is that the 60 minutes doesn't have to be all at once. Ten minutes walking to the shops, fifteen minutes of vacuuming, all count. The Guardian is doing a three-part Fitness supplement, and yesterday it included a list of "100 ways to get fit". It included stuff like this:

Ditch the TV remote control - getting up and changing the channel manually will burn 10 calories per day.

Stand when travelling on public transport and attempt to balance in a Tai Chi fashion, gently "rolling with it" - a good workout for the core stability muscles that girdle the lower spine.

Fidget - research suggests that many people who don't exercise maintain a low body weight simply by constant, non-intensive fidgeting.

Crumple newspapers after reading and pre-recycling- works the muscles of the fingers and wrists and helps prevent carpal tunnel syndrome.

Wesr lace-up shoes, not sli-ons - works the thumb and finger flexor muscles.

Don't use an electric toothbrush - the wrist muscles have to work harder with a manual toothbrush.

Sit on a fitball - requires contraction of the core stability muscles.

Don't make internal phone calls - walk over to the person, using up six calories for every minute of walking.

Use roll-on doedorant not spray - works the wrist flexor and extensor muscles.


....I'm getting tired. You get the general idea. :)

Is the pedometer craze something that began in the States and migrated here? You buy a pedometer and aim for 10,000 steps a day. A great way of getting in at least some of your 60 minutes. Not perhaps the solution for people with PF, though...

Wendy, I hope your 11 year old doesn't get Virus 2005 too badly. Mine has moved into my sinuses as well, but in my case Tylenol Sinus and Allergies is enough to keep things at a reasonable level. I have a slight cough too, which is getting considerably worse in the past hour. So far, my sore throat lozenges have helped that a bit.

I felt like I was on the mend yesterday, but not so much today. Not only did I get laryngitis, but I am having another more ominous symptom. I think the infection is "settling" in my right knee... my knee has become swollen and very sore. The problem with that is that when that happens to me, it takes a long time before the joint returns to normal. None of us here like it when we can't walk easily! So, I have been applying my heating pad and trying to very gently move the joint, and to stay off of it.

I watched a biography of Caroline Kennedy on MSNBC which I thought was very good. I watched some shows on the Home and Garden Channel, but fell asleep during them so I'm not quite sure what they were. I watched an expose about the nonconsensual sexual exploitation of children in areas affected by the tsunami, and how people are concerned that some of the child victims might be kidnapped by predators who want to sell them for nefarious uses. I watched reruns of the news. I watched the weather channel and saw the snow in California... As you can tell, there wasn't much on TV this afternoon!

Thanks from me too, Richard. But what astonishes me about the replies to your post is that you don't seem to have seen nearly as much of the devastation as we have on this side of the Atlantic. All our TV networks, especially the BBC, have given it at least half an hour's coverage in every news programme, and there are several of those on each of our four main channels every day, plus the ongoing 24-hour coverage.

The BBC coverage has been especially brilliant. They have teams of their best correspondents and camera crews in all the worst hit areas, and every evening they give detailed reports from Indonesia, Thailand, Sri Lanka and South India. Not only the scenes of devastation, but in-depth reports that focus on individuals. It has been heartbreaking. Yesterday they went to a tiny village in Sumatra in which nine-tenths of the population was killed and showed a group of around 20 orphaned children. The village elder moved through the group introducing several of the children by name and telling about the parents and siblings each had lost. (The tragedy, in these communities which children would normally be able to depend on the support of extended families, is that there are no extended families any more - so few adults left to protect the children.)

They spoke to a man who is still digging with his bare hands in the wreckage of his village, looking for his wife and children, knowing that they are dead but incapable of accepting it. The day before yesterday they talked to an Indonesian woman left almost entirely alone in her destroyed village. She had been selling vegetables in the market, slightly inland, and came home to find her home obliterated and her husband and four children all gone. She was weeping, clinging to the correspondent's arm as they walked along the beach, crying "Help me, help me. I have nothing to eat, my children are dead, Help me". And all he could do was put his arm around her, and he did.

So tell me, are you folks not getting such reports, and such pictures on your TV screens?

Geri -

What a nice post! I/we don't live in Michigan now but did for many years -on the west side of the state, between Grand Rapids and Traverse City. We miss Michigan and visit when we can. We have also lived in many different places and love them, but Michigan holds a special place in the "family heart". I know Grand Rapids well and Cedar Springs somewhat (red flannel :-) My "family of origin" is from the south, Kentucky and Tennessee for the most part; my "married family" is from the midwest. I have family all over the place now. I love Kentucky because it is where my parents' hearts remained; I love Michigan because it tugs at my own heartstrings very strongly.
We have many Big Ten loyalties in the family, from University of Michigan to the University of Illinois, as well as non-Big Ten students or alums in the family. So we are thrilled for our Illinois basketball team this year, but we will also always love the University of Michigan. When they play each other, we agonize!

Suzanne, I'm sure your children will bless you for giving them the chance to help. They will want to help, and only need a bit of direction to channel their energies into helping.

Posted by Rueben D. on 12/27/04 at 17:39

Dr DAvis,

Thank you for responding.

I had tried 3 orthoics:

1st pair- Podiatrist- molded my feet using a casting impression, while no weightbearing. These looked like felt covering with a hard plastic "orthoics arch suppport which were full length. DID NOT HELP!!


2nd pair-Powersteps from this website, too hard!! not much help


3rd pair currently using- Pedorthist took casting method with foam box casting technique and are firm styrofoam type matertial for the majority of the orthoic with a firm type of cork matrial from the metatarsals to the heel. I also have a nerve channel placed in the problematic ankle/foot, which is suppose to allevate pressure in this area, but does make much difference to me. I also had adjutmnets tried, such as a first ray cut out,(no help) and a added piece of material placed under the inside heel of the problematic ankle where the FHL tenosynovits is.


Are ther any orthoics that you would reccomened for the FHL tenosynovits that can be purchased online you are aware of?

Note: I also tried a few braces , but they were too tight and uncomfortable. The less pressure in the tarsal tunnel region the better.


The thing that helped me the most was ART by a chiropractor , but was only temporary and i did not get any lasting effect. I tried stretching the foot/ankle doiing a calf stretch , b ut this aggravated it.


Is it time for the surgery???

How risky is it to permenatly severe the post tib nerve when doing this surgery, as i am worried about this. I heard it was good size and if a doc did this during surgery he/she should not be a surgeon.

Any advice would be greatly appreciatedf as i have suffered with this for 15 months.


Also do you know if it is possible to have nerve pain, with no associated numbness, tingling or burning? I just have localized pain near the tarsal tuneel fHL tendon and it causes me to do limited standing and walking.


I want to be able to run with my son on the soccer field. I am only 35. Please help.

I recently purchased a new car for my wife. Due to her various medical problems I purchased one with ONSTAR. What a great idea. I bet some day most cars will have this feature. There are three small buttons on the rear view mirror. One she can press for a medical emergency. Another connects her to the ONSTAR help operator who will answer any questions and give her directions to any where such as the nearest hospital,hotel, or whatever. If an air bag deploys ONSTAR sends the signal via satellete and your position is pinpointed to within a few feet. ONSTAR can dispatch help or ask you over the built in hands free phone if everything is ok. Your doors can be unlocked via satellite. You can run diagnositc test on your car via satellite. You can use it like a cell phone hands free and dial by voice. If your car is stollen it can be tracked as it moves anywhere.Amazing technology. You cannot add these features on your existing car but must be built into the car when manufactured. Most GM cars now have this feature available as do some other brands. Also has a satellite radio with around 120 commercial free channels. You select the type of music you like such as rock,opera, 50's,classical,etc.Also the several news or sports channels. CD quality reception anywhere anytime. Sure a step up from my 37 Dodge I usually had to push to start.
