  8. It bothers me that sometimes ( a lot of times) there is no consideration of the needs of handi-capped people. It's not anyone's fault really, because unless you have been handicapped yourself, or taken care of someone who is, you have no clue. Becky

    You can try my grandmother's remedy- one shot whiskey mixed with honey and lemon. And, if one dose doesn't work, try two. Actually, it does make your throat stop hurting, and makes it feel less scratchy, which helps you cough less, which makes you feel better. Becky

    I have the same thing, only not as wide of a gap as either of you, I don't think. I was told pretty much the same as Heather, with a few differences mostly because I'm in a wheelchair, so some things need to be handled a little differently. First, I think that you need to understand that where your arm bone fits into your shoulder bone is not a ball-and-socket arrangement like other joints in your body. It's more a bowl-and-bone arrangement as the shoulder part is a smooth, bowl shape, and the arm bone, which is ball-shaped simply rolls around on its surface. This is what allows you to raise

    GQ, i THINK THAT THE STANDARD ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION IS THAT IF ANYTHING HAPPENS OUT OF THE ORDINARY, TELL YOUR DOCTOR.HAVING SAID THAT, IN OUR PAST DISCUSSIONS ON SIMILAR ISSUES, IT HAS COME TO LIGHT THAT MANY OF US HAVE EXPERIENCED SIMILAR SENSATIONS, WHICH CAN BE SCARY. WE HAVE CONCLUDED THAT SINCE THESE SENSATIONS COME ON QUICKLY, AND LEAVE JUST AS QUICKLY WITH NO HARM DONE, THAT THEY MUST BE PART OF THE BRAIN'S "SEARCH AND RECOVERY"PROGRAM IN WHICH IT TRIES TO ASSESS AND FIX DAMAGES DONE BY THE STROKE.
