Re: this may be taboo on here but........

<t>I was on the cannabis pain trials for 2 years a while back along with quite a few others with a TBPI. This was in the UK and if if the trials hadn't have finished the same time we had a general election, I (and a lot of others) truly believe it would have been legalised for medicinal use. Sadly, ...

Re: Could a paralized arm have a reflex action?

<t>No, a paralised arm will not have enough of a reflex action to prevent a fall on that side, but (and I am only guessing here that this is what you're getting at) a bicep can re-innnervate spontaneously, without surgery over a certain number of months. <br/> <br/> I'm not saying that everyone with...

Re: Weak Pulse.

<r>Yes keep moving the arm...even if you just keep lifting it onto the armrests of chairs, or walk with it swinging (DON'T use a sling all the time)This applies especially if you have a very severe injury. Lifting the arm and stretching it up as far as you can towards your head by grabbing it at the...

Re: left handed camcorder

<r>Hiya mate, <br/> <br/> I've been looking for years for a leftie camera, 15 years in fact, and take it from me, there is no such thing out there. <br/> <br/> It hasn't been just me looking either, I even got in touch (via my brother-in-law) with the chief honcho who imports Fuji products for a maj...

Re: Weak Pulse.

<t>Hi..to answer your questions; I have a very weak pulse in the right (tbpi) side compared to the left. Many Drs seem to have difficulty in finding it, but the average nurse doesn't, which I find quite odd (maybe nurses take a pulse more often than Drs)<br/> <br/> I do have a very cold hand in wint...

Re: spinal cord stimulator does it work for bpi

<t>Hi...all I can tell you is one person in our UK TBPI Group had what sounds like the same thing implanted..he had it taken out a very short time after. It did nothing for his pain, and actually made him worse in many ways.<br/> <br/> I think it all depends on the level of injury whether this will ...
