Comment from: Nonie, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: March 14

I am a 62 year old female with first case of pink eye. I got it from an infected patient at a chiropractic office where I work. The doctor at the office also has had it. It's been 2 days of using ofloxacin drops. I also have thick nasal discharge and tenderness in neck/throat area. Probably I'll be going back to the doctor tomorrow. I'm very angry with this person who used public transportation to the office, infecting so many people and costing me all my personal/sick days!

I had a hip replacement in June 2015. It's now near the end of February 2016 and I am still in pain when walking. The pain then causes me to limp. I am beginning to wish I never had the replacement.

I have suffered with costochondritis for at least 4 years. I am in so much pain, this is the worst pain I have suffered. I am going to try heat pad, am on morphine, and tramadol. My heart goes out to my fellow suffers.
