Re: How is everyone?

Adrian, I totally agree with you about using wheelchair assistance at the airport. I resisted this for several years but now realize I was making my husband's as well as my trip much more difficult and tiring. Especially if you are also renting a car. For an appropriate tip I have had complete assis...

Re: thyroid poll

I estimate my beginning symptoms of OT probably started a few years eariler. However, I had been checked several times for suspicion of thyroid problems even when I was a fresh...

Re: Florida clinical trial

Stepford, Thanks for posting to the forum. When is your father's procedure? Is it invasive requiring surgery or maybe an out patient procedure? I wish him answers and relief. Keep us informed as you can. Have many questions - can you elaborate on what is done and what results your doctor has had or ...

Re: How is everyone?

I have for several years needed to sleep with at least one foot out of the covers. However, if my ankles or lower leg are too far out I wake up with incredible pain, not numbness like "my legs are asleep" as i used to describe leg cramps, etc., but a very painful ache that endures for several minute...

Re: New developments

Ahh, if this is so. This non-invasive MRI, brain focused ultrasound with heat? might be able to simulate Deep Brain Surgery ? That would be a great step forward. Looking forward to hearing and reading more about this. Thanks Adrian for the information.

Re: Standing Time? this is how long I can stand...

Gloria, Thanks for suggesting getting the airport wheelchair. I just wasn't ready to admit this "defeat" of acting as "normal " as possible, especially since I can still walking briskly thru the airport with my cane for stability. (Until I stop, and then I can't cope.) Still in denial I guess.

Re: Standing Time? this is how long I can stand...

I was diagnosed with OT less than a year ago by an EMG and my neurologist. As I think back at least 15 years ago while rving and being on tours where I had to walk to the back of the group and circle around while listening so that I could participate. I remember desperately looking for sitting place...

Infrared Light Therapy

I am a new member and this is my first inquiry regarding this new topic. Has anyone else heard of or tried this stimulation of nerve cells to promote healing. I have just started trying it at home for my peripheral neuropathy due to diabetic numbness and a plantar fasciitis problem. In addition, I a...

Re: New to the forum? post a quick introduction

Hello, I am a new member to your discussion group and I'm anticipating getting to know other OT people. I was finally diagnosed early this year by a neurologist after a confirming EMG. I must say I was relieved my inability to stand around and talk with friends, or to be a good attentive tour group ...
