Maybe the QC needs to be upped on the Def model? :) There seems to be some play in the neck area. I hope you get better quick!

Sorry to hear that Mat- it is frustrating when things go wrong for no apparent reason.  If I break something in a fall (foot) or fight (knee) or other accident (numerous ribs) then I understand and deal with it.  Germs I get too.

Stupid crap like this just smurfs me off.

That all sucks, Def.  Going through what I have for years with my knee I know how you feel.  Exploratory surgery, however, is where I draw the line.  You're not cutting me open just to take a look!  >:(  As for pills, I've found the good ones don't really help the problem, they just make me not care I have the problem!  ;)

Yeah, I have problems like that too with my knees.  I hate taking the pills I am supposed to for the arthritis.

The pills they gave me today are really not for the problem I'm having.  One is to deal with my acid reflux issues, which they spotted while poking around in my throat.  That hasn't got anything to do with this issue, but they think they want to do something about that too.  There's a story here, but the short version is that I was taking these pills a few years ago and stopped because they were worse than the reflux. 

The other is an antibiotic to keep whatever is wrong from getting infected until someone figures out what is wrong and how to fix it.

Just read though all this :(. Sorry to hear this. I have had this happen to me so I feel your pain. Mine pops back in place with a twist of my head and a swallow. It bloody sucks. I wish you all the best Grant and I really hope they don't have to do surgery, especially so close to a vital thing like speech. Please keep us all informed.

I'll make sure to get a copy of any results I get just in case this ever happens to you Steve- at least the doctors on your end can hit the ground running!

Speech is a vital part of my job- I'm not sure how much of my job I'll be able to do without speaking, but I guess I'll find out this morning as I have two different jobs scheduled.   ::)

No need to be sorry mate  :D it has been over 10 years since I had any surgery , I knew there was no guarantees going in but after 4 cracks & the surgeon saying 'I can still fix you' I said no thanks mate.

Def I sure do hope they get your throat & voice sorted soon mate  :think: :think:

So much that we do is almost unconscious, it takes a lot of practise to become aware of and able to interfere with these reactions. Anyway, that's just another school though....

Maybe you should consider nuphoria's thought before resorting to exploratory surgery. I wouldn't hesitate getting operated if I knew they knew what they were looking for but excavating like this :think: :think: Let's hope those pharmaceuticals help things straighten out.

The drugs aren't even for this.  There's an antibiotic to keep whatever is wrong from getting infected and something to deal with the acid reflux I don't give a smurf about.

I'm not a doctor so cannot really jugde this treatment but I can tell you that acid reflux can cause extreme cough, frequent vomits and a sore gullet. Usually it is easy to deal with. Get better soon!

Actually I do, but I have had it my entire life and I've just gotten used to it.  I deal with it as it happens, usually bad once or twice a week.  About once a month or so it gets so bad that I vomit.

But remember, I'm also the guy who shattered a foot, walked back to the car, drove home and went to bed.  I also lost a kneecap in a fight and still won.

i'm a bit of a whip, true  ! but acid reflux is awful. i keep it under control with any means available.
also it tends to be a sympom of something else rather than a problem in itself. keep an eye on it mate.

I stopped taking the acid reflux medicine because while it held off the problems, I found that if I missed a day I paid for it in spades.  I'd rather have the more frequent but easier to deal with problems than the incapacitating burning that results from a forgotten pill or a prescription not renewed in time.

Plus I hate the idea of being dependent on something that much.

I agree. I took acid reducers for awhile and if I missed a day I paid for it. so I quit taking them. If I watched when I would eat I could manage it. I never ate after 6:00pm and that helped me.
Also less stress in your life is even more effective. ;)

I don't eat anything after 7 except I have a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios before bed.  I eat them dry while watching TV.

Multitool.org is no substitute for medical advice.  Consult your local physician before attempting any of the exercises suggested here.  :D

Be careful with that- it was really bad if I missed a day.  It brought me to my knees a couple of times.  And, it takes a while for the pills to kick in again, so you could be looking at a couple of days of discomfort.

Uncontrolled reflux can actually burn through your oesophagus leaving permanent damage. It can also lead to Barrett's which has about a 1/5 chance of becoming carcinogenic.

Please don't stop taking your meds without consulting your doc ;)

As it was shattered I never really figured out what happened to it.  My femur wasn't in the greatest of shape either.

The one I have now is polycarbonate I think.  Guaranteed not to break!  So far it's lasted me about as long as the original one did.

Well, I continued it until the police arrived and the two guys that jumped me were arrested.

I may have lost a knee but that's better than what they lost in jail....
