Managing Pain

After suffering with pain in my knees for a few years, I was sent for an x-ray and finally diagnosed with osteoarthritis. What can I do to help manage the pain? People say that walking can help, but I find walking to cause me a lot of pain so I'm not convinced that walking will help me! I must admit...

Methotrexate

I was diagnosed with RA just over 6 months ago and was prescribed methotrexate. A month or so after, I noticed that I had a rash and some red bumps on my chest, and have continued to have rashes quite regularly. I have stopped eating certain foods and changed some of my usual products such as shampo...

Exercise/home remedies

Hi, I have recently been told that I have osteoarthritis in both of my knees (I've been in pain for a while so it's quite a relief to have a diagnosis now if I'm honest). I know that I am slightly overweight, and I am determined to lose a few pounds (especially after christmas!) as I think this will...

Sleep problem

I am 43 yo male and suffering a sleep problem. I wake up every night after about 3/4 hours sleep needing to pee. I’ve done a urine sample at gp and nothing seemed to show up.

Prostate Cancer

I have intermediate prostate cancer (7 Gleeson). I know from the time my biopsies were done that my prostate size is 60mm x 50mm. I have had pain in my hands every time I urinate for about 4 years and now know why my urethra is being crushed and that reduces the flow, no idea why it hurts my hands. ...

Frequency of physical examinations

Three years ago I got diagnosed with having a slightly enlarged prostate because I was getting up numerous times in the night needing the loo. I am taking 400mg Tamsulosin daily.
My question is how often should I be physically examined by the doctor for this condition?
Thank you, Nigel

Sleep supplements

When I get into bed at night, I find it really difficult to switch my brain off and get into a restful state, ready for sleep, so it takes me a while to drift off. Are there any supplements/sleep aids that would help me fall asleep? Willing to try anything at this point. Thanks, Matt

Asking on behalf of my boyfriend...

I am emailing in for my boyfriend – we have a great sex life but sometimes he has problems getting and keeping an erection – he is 28… He doesn’t want to discuss or talk about it to me. What would you suggest I do or say to him? It's very difficult to know what the right thing is to do/say.

Prostate check

I am a very fit guy and never go to the doctors but now I am in my early 50s I feel that perhaps I should have my prostate checked – is this something that I just phone up and ask the doctor to do? (Simon)
