What was the cause of your hamstring injury?

I have had atrial fibrillation for over 3 years. I tried living with it, but I started getting depressed and feeling more run down every month. Four cardioversions did not help. I finally had an ablation on 12/23/2015. So far it is working, but it is too soon to say how successful it is. My heart is in rhythm and I feel better every day.

The stomach flu hit me around 3.30 pm on a Friday, and now on Monday I can finally eat some crackers and drinking Gatorade. The stomach cramps the first two days were unreal, never have I felt pain like that and I have a decent threshold for pain. Now on day 4 the cramps are minor and my belly is a little sore. I had diarrhea for the entire time but never crazy out of control. Now I'm noticing it is a dark green color which says that the bacteria is finally making its way out. Good luck to anyone that gets this as I wouldn't wish it on anyone!

I am a retired soldier who was exposed to a lot of firing of small as well as heavy weapons without any ear protection kit. For the last couple of years there is a ringing noise especially at nights when it is calm outside. Recently my sleep is quite disturbed although I have been regularly taking Ativan table 1 mg every night for last couple of years. When the effect of this tablet decreases I start dreaming quite bad and do not feel fresh when I wake up. I need an expert opinion how to cope up. All my life I have been suffering from allergic rhinitis and keep using nasal sprays for post nasal drip.

I am going through chemotherapy and I just noticed my ring finger turning red first on the side and spreading up to the middle and sore to touch. I soaked it with equal parts of white vinegar and water and I scraped banana peel and applied around it with the use of Band-Aid. Now it is starting to dry and I have less pain. I went to show it to my doctor the following day and he advised me to put triple antibiotic if my paronychia got worse. He asked me what I put, and I said I tried to use my emergency home remedy and it helps.

I'm 71. I was sprinting about 300 yards to try to catch a train and the area around my hamstrings gave out. I take blood thinners. The area above my knees in the back is deep purple. I can walk but there is some pain. It's been about ten days now.

I fell backwards on my hand with all my weight. The doctor says I was lucky I didn't shatter it! But I don't know which bone it is, so I am wondering which one is fractured.

I raised my leg and upon full extension of my leg, I pulled my hamstring. The hamstring felt horrible and hurt so bad.

While herding cows and 4 wheeler tipped, my left foot caught under gear and the right foot was extended. My shirt caught on the throttle, and result was pulled left hamstring.
