It is not my intention to upset anybody, but I am aware that someone may get their knickers twisted by what I am about to say. Okay, we all remember that I am not a doctor or paid by anybody, worse luck. These are my thoughts and opinions nobody elses. I merely need to say that. If "YOU" feel that medical help is called for, be smart, get it.
In today's writing, we shall refer to Disease-Modifying Therapy(DMT) as important and various other medicines maybe not quite as necessary. Before "YOU" go to your doctor to ask for a new pill for some ache and pain, think, research first what else "YOU" can do to solve your problem. Somebody asked a few days ago about tablets to help with bladder issues. Was she aware that there is a procedure for Botox injections to help with this. I know of two ladies who swear by this as multiple medicines have not helped. I am told that it is very painless and fast. Not for me, of course, I am scared of needles.
Of course at times medicine is important but can be very dangerous. When I had Trigeminal Neuralgia attacking the left side of my face I was very hesitant in getting surgery on it, even though it was only laser surgery. Naturally, I overdosed several times on opioids before I gave in and got the surgery. Whan it turned up on the right side there was no hesitating. Surgery was an option over pills, and ER visits at three am.
Sometimes surgery is a better option, in the same token exercise might help with walking. Walking canes may help with stability. Go see a physiotherapist as to what other options you may have beyond medication.
I do not feel that every problem I may have will be fixed by taking more tablets, sometimes a little creative thinking will solve the problem, what do "YOU" think.
