    Not sure if you are trying to be funny or just trolling.

    In any case, anyone looking for a diagnosis from regular people online is wasting their time. People should always go to an actual doctor for diagnosis when they have health issues.

    LOL, just fyi, I am always trying to be funny, that is the main reason I am here, self-amusement Doesn't always work but I do give the effort. I would not choose to be serious on a sports site.

    I thought I had been on here long enough for you to realize that as well as I would never diagnose someone's health issues, but thanks for playing along. This is a first for me, actually explaining that I am not serious.

    I tend to a be a very (extreme) literal person especially while working so if there are no additional signs or hints something is meant as humor, I assume it is a serious post. Not your fault of course, but just like sarcasm fails to be recognized by a lot of people in online text, I have that issue with humor and other emotions when no additional context or hints are applied.

    All good though!

    S'ok, I thought you knew I was just screwing around. It is safe to assume I am in the future.....unless I am not and I can't tell you because it will ruin the effect.

    In your position, I would be literal as well. Some poster starts talking about hanging out a shingle in a thread and playing doctor, can't ignore that. Now, please drop your pants, turn your head and cough. How long have you had that cough?

    I don't really have any health issues and don't get sick very often. With that said, battling something now. For a week or so, my eyes had constant discharge(mucous) and when I would wake up, the eyes would almost be dried up. Sleep dried up all around the eyelids, corners, etc. once I cleaned all that up, the eyes continued to discharge all day.

    So, went to an opthomologist to have it looked at. Turns out I have MGD and blepharitis. My glands stopped producing lipids that mix with the tears to keep eyes moistened. I am now on a regimen of two kinds of drops every 5 hours, occular heat treatments and eyewashes.

    It has been five days since my dr visit and the eyes are about 70% better but the problems are still there, just lighter. The Dr said if this doesn't work, I will need something called manual glandular extraction. No idea what that is or entails but I will bet good money that it is something that I will not participate in :lmao2:

    He probably forgot how to change his avatar, so I'll skip the part about not giving him any ideas......but you need to be more careful in the future!

    I need to get my eyes checked. I thought the thread title said Heath, so I'm reading all these responses and no one is discussing Heath. I thought strange, so I scrolled to topthe and saw it was Health. LOL.

    :lmao::lmao::lmao::huh::huh::huh:

    I started a thread a few days ago regarding the benefits, or issues, with CBD oil as a treatment for inflammation associated with arthritis.

    I got a lot of good feedback on CBD, but more importantly, the thread spawned a number of conversations about homeopathic medicine - something I would like discuss in more detail

    And never google your symptoms, you go from healthy to dying in 6 clicks.

    I had this very thing when I was a teen. Lasted about a month, visits to my family Dr. and Eye Dr. solved nothing, they prescribed various eye drops ... and mentioned to my Mom some of the possibilities. My eyes cleared up about 2-3 weeks later. Basically just flushed my eyes every morning and put the eye drops in. It sucks when your eyelids do not want to open, and when you are a teen it's a little unsettling.

    Damn, I don't care what word you put between manual and extraction, that makes me twitch as I am typing. Hope you get to that next 30% level.

    No matter the symptoms, I always end up being told I have a brain aneurism.

    YOU TOO? I couldn't understand why Jeff Heath was being discussed so low in the forums.
    I stopped going to them. They are like the Roadrunner and turn you into Wylie Coyote. You end up placing the anvil over your own head.
