I am sorry you are having these issues.

what is your height and weight?

can you improve your diet and cut out gluten, white flour, pasta, bread, sugar, sodas, alcohol? this can help decrease inflammation in your body and help you loose weight

you can eat more protein and fruits and vegetables which can help you loose weight and decrease inflammation in your body.

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
No and I can't stand even cigarette smoke so with my lungs I truly don't think that would work..I can't handle perfume, gas smells ECT..
Neurologist: Dr. David, Board Certified MD replied 1 month ago

some dispensaries have extracted CBD and marijuana organics into oils and lozenges that you can dissolve under your tongue or swallow as a pill to help decrease pain.

I see a nero surgeon, a orthopedic dr,a lung dr, an allergie dr, a pain Dr and a RA dr.. And a neurologist.. And no one has come up with the why not with bloodwork, CT scans, or MRI and there's got to be a reason why I am falling apart..

I have a question. My fiancé fell and suffered a seizure,
My fiancé fell and suffered a seizure, followed by cardiac arrest for 10 minutes with a loss of oxygen, they have resuscitated him and induced him into a coma, He was diagnosed with anoxic brain injury, and since then he has still been in a coma which is now been since 4/5. He was off sedation as of 4/7.. As of now they have told me his prognosis is very poor but recently I have seen him move his feet, and legs. And most recently he has grabbed my hands after speaking with him. He has also seemingly what looked like move his eyeballs when speaking but its still hard to tell. I would like to know if there is anything I can do or to know if maybe if he is trying to come out of the coma .
