    All drugs has side effect. There is no such thing as a perfect drug except placebo. Of course when one takes the medication , we should be told of the risk factor. Honestly, how many doctors have told you about the risk factor. I have yet to come across one as far as I can remember. We have Google to thank for making our society more well informed.

    Picture the most common drug prescribe by your doctors with all these possible adverse reactions with Panadol which is paracetamol.

    Other
    Common (1% to 10%): Pyrexia, fatigue
    Rare (0.01% to 0.1%): Malaise

    Imagine the doctor headaches where he may pop NSAID himself which is another pain relief to relieve the pain in the neck to explain side effects associated with each and every prescription drugs. BTW, the total side effects associated with NSAID has more strokes where it is contraindicated or may worsen gastro intestinal, renal and liver dysfunction, impaired cardiac condition, and photosensitivity .........as each different classes of NSAID has different set of side effects where the older generation consist of gastro intestinal incidences while newer ones may present higher risk of myocardial infarction and stroke. Adding to the confusion, each NSAID drugs have different actions and reactions.

    When you are at home, you can do trial and error to "treat" the symptoms.

    Although the symptoms disappear, the root cause can still be there. Once you don't have the convenience at home (like business travelling or overseas holidays), it is difficult to handle the symptoms when it strikes again.

    It is good to seek doctor's advice to understand more, and hopefully can handle the root cause with the right medications. Of course, the process to treat the root cause is not always smooth and straight forward, it is very much depend on the doctor or to be precise, whether can find the right doctor and this can be very subjective..

    WOW! You are really in good shape. Hubby(in his mid 60s) and i average 15.20 min/mile. Yesterday we did only 3.03miles (coz i was being lazy) and it took 46mins 23secs. According to Map My Walk app on my phone, we ...
    burned 212 calories,
    did 6195 steps and
    elevation gain was 170ft.
    Max pace was 9.43mins/mile.
    Yes, America still uses Miles and feet. (sheesh) We like going through the hilly areas to make it a bit more challenging or else i get bored. I don't like flat land walking. We don't run as our knees might suffer (I am not that young anymore, going to hit the big 5 OhMG!! end of the year) So our routes include a lot of me hitting his butt and complaining for making me huff and puff up the hills. hahahhaa...

    For some reason my left knee was feeling a bit of gout discomfort a couple nights ago but i don't recall eating anything that i should so i hv no idea what might have caused it. It only lasted some minutes and i fell back to sleep again so it wasn't bad.
    Insecurity is unattractive. Smile and the whole world smiles with you.

    I started jogging when I was a teenager. I run up and down the hill of bukit cina nearby my parents house. When I studied in KL, I jogged at titiwangsa lake. That was the time safety wasn't a big concern and is alright to jog outdoor.

    I seldom jog outdoor now, mainly due to safety and also because of mosquitoes as I usually exercise in the morning or evening.

    I think jog on treadmill is ideal when one gets older as the rubberized track cause less strain on knee and joints compares to harder and uneven surfaces outdoor.

    The calories should be written as Calories.

    1 Calorie is equivalent to 1000 calories. 1 Calorie can be written as kilocalorie (kcal) also. It is the amount of energy required to raise the temperature of 1 kilogram of water one degree Celsius.
