They do here, too. Having EMR is one of the requirements of the Affordable Care Act and there's funding in the Act to help implement it. In my area, most doctors' offices affiliated with the largest hospital system are connected to it. All my doctors can see all my test results with graphs and all my meds. The system warns of interactions.

You can even have your palm scanned and associated with your account so EMTs can access your records if you are unconscious.

I was rather miffed this week I was congratulating myself on losing 10lbs in 6 weeks using my scales at home only to be told that the all-singing, all dancing, whizzy, whizzy, Slimming World electronic scales say it's only 8 lbs. Grrr!

Still not up to full mileage on my 5 miles a week walking challenge. Didn't do any this last week as every time I went up to the stables I needed the car for something else so I haven't got my mile a day in. Will start again on Monday.

Now at 25 pounds lost, I'm starting to get comments. Problem, sciatic pain is curtailing my walking. If it's not one thing it's another.

That is a mean thing to have. Been there, done that. Take care of yourself.

The pain that goes down my leg is what I can't handle...dull throbbing, makes me nauseous. I have a TENS machine for some pain relief and BioFreeze for bedtime. Not perfect but they help. This pain can't be handled by tylenol or pain meds...darn it! I hate nerve pain.

I have had it on more than once occasion. Twice I had it so severe I couldn't even stand, never mind walk. The first time was right after The Pirate was born at home. Newborn baby and I couldn't even get up to feed him or change him for three days. Only bed rest helped. The second time was in Hawaii. I decided to go for a walk. It lasted five hours. Just made it home.

Oh man, sciatica is the worst. Congrats on the 25 pound loss, though, PF!

And to you too, Mad Chef, for your 8 to 10 pound loss!

I suffered from that for about 6 weeks one year. A friend booked me in to see her massage therapist who also has an MD in acupuncture. I kid you not, 10 minutes after she put the needles in, the pain went away and has not returned (it has been 10 years). If you have access to an acupuncturist, it might be worth a try. Nothing else I did worked. Since it is nerve pain, acupuncture might be the answer.

I couldn't sit, stand, walk, or drive. It was a brutal six weeks that 10 minutes at the acupuncturist cured.
