Asbestosis

posted in: Health | 0

Asbestosis is a non-cancerous condition caused by exposure to asbestos. It is caused by asbestos fibers that become lodged in the lungs. As the lungs try to protect the body from these foreign bodies, scar tissue develops and diminishes the lung’s capacity for oxygen. BE Plant Hire will help you remove asbestos.

 

Asbestosis is a progressive disease: as the scarring of the lungs gets worse, the lungs’ vital capacity continues to decrease. Asbestosis can cause severe shortness of breath, fatigue, chest pain, and lead to heart problems. Asbestosis may also be present in people suffering from asbestos-caused cancers such as mesothelioma and lung cancer, although asbestosis does not develop into these or any other form of cancer.

Asbestosis, as with all other asbestos-related diseases, is a latent disease. This means that asbestosis typically develops many years after a person’s initial exposure to asbestos. The latency period for asbestosis is often 15 or more years after initial exposure, but can be shorter or longer than that time period.

 

Asbestos is a “dose-response” disease. That means that the more asbestos a person is exposed to, the higher his or her risk for developing asbestosis.

 

There is no currently known treatment or cure for asbestosis. However, people with more severe asbestosis may require oxygen respirators to help them breathe. Find out more.…

Pain in the Neck or Rather Throat – Aspergers Test

posted in: Health | 0
I’m not sure if sensory issues and immune system issues are definitely related, but I have issues with both, and there seems to be a correlation.  I am hypersensitive to sensory stimuli, especially to pain and smell.  Some people with Aspergers are hyposensitive or are a mixture, taking AQ Adult Test would be beneficial.
My immune system is over-reactive.  It definitely doesn’t need ‘boosting.’  It reacts to ‘harmless’ food chemicals such as dairy and gluten and when I get a cold, it’s like I’ve been slammed with the flu.  When my immune system is over-reacting (fighting off a minor infection or reacting to food chemicals it thinks are harmful), I suffer big-time.  I’ve noticed my hypersensitivity increases dramatically.  I think it may be to do with the inflammation chemicals that the body releases that cause the havoc.  Sometimes my sense of smell is so heightened, it becomes distorted and I can smell something burnt that isn’t really there.  I rubbed my finger against a rough surface and it felt like the skin had been grazed off, but it hadn’t.  My pain receptors were are out of whack at these times.
My throat is excruciatingly painful at the moment – each time I swallow it’s like trying to swallow a rolled up ball of barbed wire.  It doesn’t help that the uvula (dangly thing at back of throat) is swollen so I keep gagging on it.  I spent the last 2 days off work sleeping because I was so fatigued and my muscles and joints hurt.  Have hardly eaten, as is too painful to eat.  Every time I swallow, I can’t help but grimace, which probably looks really silly.  Now I’ve got muscles spasms in my jaw near my ear to add to my discomfort.
Unfortunately, I get really bad side effects with most medications, so I am stuck with paracetamol, which barely takes the edge off.  Anti-inflammatory drugs such as asprin, ibuprofen and NSAIDs ironically give me more inflammation and more pain.  Plus severe depression.
Had a bad run this winter as had another virus with a bad cold (with usual sore throat, runny nose, aches and pains, fatigue).  I had a good few years since sorting out my food sensitivities – being long-term undiagnosed celiac meant I was chronically ill – chronic pain, recurring tonsillitis, sinusitis, etc.  When I woke up one morning choking on something very painful (last time my uvula was this painfully inflamed), the doctor said he’d only ever seen it in old men that smoke cigars in bed and snore.  Not a woman in her thirties that doesn’t smoke (and usually doesn’t snore).  Hopefully I will feel better in a few days.  Glad I don’t feel this way for months on end anymore – not fun at all.
Xavier had a meltdown yesterday. I didn’t have the energy to deal with him, plus it hurts to talk.  I walked away and left him to it.  Sometimes that’s the best thing to do even when I’m feeling well.
