Most people don’t like surprises. Surprise a person with a “surprise” birthday party and someone’s likely to get slugged. Surprises at work — “uh, the boss would like to see you” — are never good. Generally, humans like to know what’s coming up. That’s why aneurysms are especially sinister. Most brain aneurysms are completely asymptomatic,...  read more

Effective progress has been made in treating Parkinson’s disease, especially with the development of new drugs, along with a better understanding of how to use older treatment methodologies.

Many people suffer through pain, numbness, and tingling in their hand and arm yet don’t do anything about it.
