Just checked and Tylenol is what we call paracetamol. I don't find it touches any sort of pain for me.

If you don't have any stomach problems and you aren't taking any other meds what about trying aspirin ( yes, I know "they" get in a flat spin about it but it works for me) or Ibuprofen. Both are anti-inflammatories and often I find you need that with muscle and joint pain. If it's really bad you may be able to get either combined with codeine but don't take that for very long as the codeine can cause nasties. I'm only making suggestions based on my experiences, not advising you.

You have my sympathy. I've had problems with my hip for a few years now and have a lot of related muscular pain. I was advised to try Pilates so I went to a class to see how I got on. It was a very basic beginners class with mostly floor work and it was fine - I was advised only to do as much as was comfortable. Then - I tried to get up off the floor and couldn't! (Stop laughing at the back, there!) I eventually made it after about 5 minutes. Decided Pilates wasn't for me.

Something is very, very wrong with me for thinking that!!
I have a 17 year old non-terrorist senior cat. He ignored me when Mom and I got home but as soon as Mom got settled in her chair he was right into her lap wanting lovings - on HIS terms.

Mom has a 9:45am doctor appointment with her PCP - they were slammed at their office today so he got the hospitalist that he works with to call him, went over her file then she came to talk with us. She has 6 days of antibiotics to take, she has to cut out her ibuprofin and aleve, and all vitamns except her 1-a-day woman's multivitamin until after she has bloodwork done in a week.

I will probably sleep better tonight. She called me at 5am today. She couldn't remember if I wanted her to call me at 5 or 6. She's trying to get back on her regular schedule before Wednesday night, because she wants to go back to work then. We'll wait and see what the Dr says.

I am an abject failure. We had a nice snorkel yesterday, and I fired up the GoPro camera on a long retractable stick thing. I pushed a button that seemed to turn it on, and that looked like it would take a nice long underwater video, and dragged it along on its stick, putting it in all sorts of crevices, pictures of fish, and poking it in DH's face. I ran the battery out. Got it back to replay, and there's nothing there. No video. I pushed the wrong buttons or something.

The manual that came with it is worthless. I need to watch some YouTube videos.

Thank you so much. She is feeling much better, in bed right now trying to stay on her work schedule as much as possible so when she goes back to work she won't play heck trying to get back on it. She works as the night auditor at a local Comfort Inn.

Addie, I hope you and everyone in the Boston area is OK. We here in EC had 3 small tornadoes go through the Friday night after Easter, but our house didn't get any damage, just lots of pine cones in the yard from neighbors trees. Also had tornado warnings go off Friday night during Awful Arthur's trip through our neck of the woods, but no damage here.

Yes, watch you tube for directions on how to use the Go Pro. Sorry your vid didn't turn out. You are NOT a failure...should have seen me with my regular digital camera today.

No you aren't a failure. The user manual was. I read the entire user manual, there wasn't much, for my new PowerPak. I found the online manual. The one that came with left out important stuff, like the next-to-invisible power switch. I needed a YouTube video.

Check the product website. They often have a more comprehensive owner's manual on their site that you can download.
