I Got Shingles As A Healthy 34-Year-Old, And It Was The Worst Pain I've Ever Felt
Fri, 05 May 2017 02:06:45 +0800 | Healthy Living - The Huffington Post
By Amanda MacMillan A few weeks after my 34th birthday, my husband and I went for a Saturday hike — a weekly ritual we’d started after moving to New York State’s Catskill Mountains region a few months earlier. I’d been feeling a bit under the weather, and I hoped the fresh autumn air would do me good. It didn’t. Later that night, I had chills and my skin felt strangely sensitive, like when you’re coming down with the flu. On top of that, it felt like I had pulled a muscle in my back or chest; when I breathed or stretched certain ways, I’d get shooting pains across my body.

In the process, these super-shedders and their offspring are only mildly affected by the virus, but endanger the juveniles of non-shedders in particular. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)

5 STI Myths That Just Won't Die
Mon, 24 Apr 2017 22:02:50 +0800 | Healthy Living - The Huffington Post
For Glamour, by Suzannah Weiss. Nobody wants to hear it, but it’s true: sexually transmitted infections are incredibly common, and even the most careful among us can contract them. Culturally we are trying to talk about the realities of STIs more often, but there are still a lot of misconceptions out there. If you’ve heard one of these myths repeated, we’re declaring once and for all: It’s not true. 1. If you had one, you would know.
