    I can relate to your skin problems with the sun as you get older.
    I have always tanned very easily.
    Then at the end of last summer I found I was getting quite red without having been in the sun. It turns out to be Acne Rosacea and I have to keep it out of the sun.
    The cream treatment doesn't seem to do much except maybe I have fewer spots.
    Yet another of the perils of getting old that I am stuck with.

    That sounds very useful NN. Thank you.

    I have a tame GP and it is highly likely he would oblige.
    I really do like to be in the sun. It isn't the same having my coffee in the conservatory wearing a sun hat.

    We once found some "Total Block" sunscreen in Africa which was very useful for my husband's ginger hair type skin.

    Hi Lee.
    Well it's a long story....
    I went for a head scan yesterday to see what had caused my stroke.
    But I chickened out!!!
    I had dreadful claustraphobia once they got my head all clamped up and slid me into the machine.
    All I wanted to do was punch my way out. It was awful.

    The girls were great. They were watching with eagle eyes and could tell I had a problem. They got me out FAST.

    After I remembered how at a party in a very low ceiling venue, my Dad was asked to go into the Ladies toilet as my Mum was laid on the floor trying to get as much space above her as possible.
    She had the same problem, hated confined spaces. Terrified is a better word.

    Oh no, that must've been awful Ollie. What are they going to do now? Do you think you'd be better if it was a head scanner only? That's if they have them. Could you have some help with relaxation techniques? Can they give you some drugs to slightly sedate you?
    • CommentAuthorollie in UK
    • CommentTimeApr 29th, 2010 10:24pm (Apr 29th 2010)
     
    I went to see my tame GP next day to discuss.
    We agreed that the scan was to find out what had happened and anyway would not change the treatments I am on. So I questioned the value of having a stressful examination just to see what had happed in the past..
    He offered me a precription for a strong sedative if I wanted to have another go but I graciously declined. Can't see the point if it isn't going to change anything.
    So I will go back to my Consultant after further blood tests and an Ultrsound on my heart murmour to see if that may be relevant.
    It's all rather a mess but thankfully it has only slightly affected me and is improving anyway.

    Ollie, sorry to read you have been unwell but you are right in saying that if the scan is stressful then it is best it is not done...As you say, it has already happened.

    Well, at least you know now that if you do have to have that type of scan in the future you'll need a sedative to help you through. Its better to know that sort of thing now rather than to find out when a scan could be urgent. Has the stoke left you with any after-effects? Hope all of your tests go well. x

    I too just found this Ollie..when did you have the stroke?? I'm so sorry to hear about your problem with the scan, I've had the same feeling getting an MRI done..it was awful. I hope you are feeling better now and what ever it was that caused the stroke, it won't happen again. (((((Big Hugs)))):bighug:

    Well Ollie i am sorry to hear of you problems it makes you wonder what it is all about last Thursday i had a real funny turn at about 10 am on my way to a job in Brighton marina i felt very light headed and my left arm was very tingly so you can imagine what i was feeling!!!:heart: so i pulled into a park with a cafe and had a sit down and a cup of tea.
    Then off i carried on did the job in the Marina and headed back home not feeling good at all and all the time fearing the worse i got home and sat down my heart started pumping like mad by this time i was ready to call an ambulance but did not any way i booked a Doctors appointment and went to see him he said its not your Heart but we will do an ECG to make sure and everything is fine i think i was having some sort of panic attack which i do suffer from but no how to control them now and they only last 15 mins or so but this one was very different thats why i was worried.My problem really is i have always lived on my nerves and have never been a relaxed person at all i love having relaxed people around me it makes me feel good.Well Thats the story of my nutty problem!!!!:arf: Ollie i hope you get the answers you need.

    I used to get panic attacks when my kids were small, they really can blight your life as you can get so worried you might have one, you set yourself up for one. I seem to have grown out of them so thats a bonus !!

    Oh Lee, that doesn't sound right.
    Do be careful. You did the right thing getting medical advice. Sometimes it is just a matter of being reassured over fact you already know.

    I am a really laid back person and can mostly let stuff wash over me but I'm getting on now and need to take more care..

    I am a real worrier about my health too - I think it stems from working in a hospital. My first job was in medical records, and my 2nd was coding what people were admitted with, so you get a really good idea of all the things that can go wrong! I found a web site www.nomorepanic.co.uk. It was very down to earth and a bit of a relief that others experience the same thing as me.

    I can understand why you were concerned Lee, that must have been so scary. I hope the ECG has reassured you.

    What about tai chi, Lee? It's relaxing yet you're strengthening your body without realising...until next morning! Ow...but nice. Meditation in motion.

    Lee,
    I have never had panic attacks but found myself having these most peculiar feelings, like my thorat would tighten up and I knew I'd be sick but then it would pass, or my arms and legs would tingle and my heart would race. It got bad enough for me to go to the Doc's who instantly prescribed beta blockers. I have not even had the prescription filled in because I know I'm having panic attacks.
    It all started with things going wrong in my married life and all of a sudden everything was different.
    I have found that I am a lot better with meditation but it takes practise and I am in no way good at it but I keep trying and keep telling myself that I can't change the past and I can't see the future and try to live in the ''now''.
    Meditation has helped me and though I promise to do this every morning, I don't alwasy achieve it.
    I guess going easy on yourself is the first step to dealing with panic attacks.
    I know that right now things are ab it churned up again in my head and I now know the symptoms so I can keep it controlled.

    When it first happened, I thought I was having a heart attack and having a brain haemorrage at the same time. :-( totally scared the living daylights out of me.

    CC, Never thought of Tai Chi but I will look into it.

    I do my meditations thru these people:

    Lee,
    All nutters are great and good people, it is the sane ones that worry me.

    I understand about how nutters tick. :crazy::crazy:

    Meditation works for me, although it is a slow process. It is really hard when your mind is running round in circles. :woohoo:

    Hi folks, back again,computer problems here too since last Thursday, Trev had a look but no luck. Turned out it was a server issue and not us, all fixed now.:ebay:

    We are off to house sit for friends on Friday and will return in just over a week. It will be lovely to relax and catch up on some reading. Taking Thomas our 'wonder cat' with us. He is eating and thriving so fingers crossed we have him for a while longer. He is just amazing, definitely has more than 9 lives!!!!:bigsmile:

    What a week you have all had with health worries, a fox scare and various adventures. Stay well and happy and I will be back soon to chat.:biggrin:
