Q. I absolutely hate hospitals and doctors offices and can't stand them. any advice? I was very accident prone growing up so i have a lot of bad memories from the hospital and doctors offices that affect me today. Every time i get hurt or sick i refuse to go to get checked out and recently i did something to my wrist i was worried that i did something bad to it but i still wouldn't go. I'm better now but i need to get over my fears so i can handle these visits to the doctors or I'm worried something bad could happen in the future. Does anyone have any advice on what i should do?

A. this fear surly comes from places you know about. this is a first step! congratulations :).
now you have to figure what to do with them- that a very good situation to be in. all you have to do is choose how you want to overcome your fears. my advise to you is getting a psychologist that specialized in phobias. he can direct you to the next step much better then anyone else. you can also try Biofeedback, a treatment that helps you control your body reactions-

but i would let the psychologist recommend me a kind of therapy..
good luck!

Q. Is there a chance for the urine test at the doctor's office to go wrong? Four times I have experienced home pregnancy tests. They all came positive to my delight. Once I had a urine test in a clinic it came negative. I was told at the clinic by a nurse that the home pregnancy test may go wrong. I am completely confused. Is there a chance for the urine test at the doctor's office to go wrong?

A. Lesa, the home pregnancy test is just a device to help knowing whether a woman is pregnant or not, but I will say that is never 100% accurate, maybe it is 99,something% accurate. but there's always slight chance for that to be wrong. repeated test will confirm the prior test.

sometimes when you're happened to check the pregnancy with 'poor-pregnancy-test-device' you can have your result mistaken. if you want to be sure, check it in your doctor's office, and discuss that with your doctor. and one more thing, yes it's true the later you're having late period the higher the probability you're having positive result. so, don't get confused, okay?

Q. I doubt this to be fibromyalgia symptom and how can I manage with home and office with this deadly disease? I am a Zonal Manager working in a leading multinational company. My home stress overweighs the work related stress. I have a sweet family consisting of 3 kids and my hubby. My hubby works in an Airline Office and his work schedule is very tight. He doesn’t find time to engage my children at home. Even if he finds time at home, he prefers to relax and enjoy more than talking or playing with the kids. The kids have no other option than approaching me for all their needs. This puts me in continuous stress and now I have developed severe muscular pain all over my body. I doubt this to be fibromyalgia symptom and how can I manage with home and office with this deadly disease?

A. It is a proven fact that women with fibromyalgia benefit from working instead of being idle at home. Researchers have proved that working women with fibromyalgia possess better health status than women at home except pain. You have to be careful with your movements at work otherwise it is natural that you can end up in pain which ultimately ruin the rest of busy day. Try to be active and keep working. Follow your medicines regularly along with therapies to get relief from the disastrous pain.

If, as was most generally the case, they placed themselves under the protection of any of the petty kings in their vicinity, accepted of feudal offices in his household, or bound themselves by mutual treaties of alliance and protection, to support him in his enterprises, they might indeed purchase temporary repose; but it must be with the sacrifice of that independence which was so dear to every English bosom, and at the certain hazard of being involved as a party in whatever rash expedition the ambition of their protector might lead him to undertake.
