A shop worker claims she suffered a stroke that left her arm swinging 'with a life of its own' before she was left paralysed after taking the Pill. Bobbie Jarvis, 24, was sent home from hospital in February after doctors told her she merely had a headache. But five days later, she had a stroke alone at her boyfriend's home where she was discovered unconscious in the garden. It left her arm moving around 'like a cat's tail' for seven days before she began having seizures. Miss Jarvis has now spent six weeks in hospital after being left paralysed on the left side of her body - and must re-learn how to walk. She claims doctors blamed the Pill, which she has been on since the age of 17, which caused a blood clot and therefore a stroke. The chances of this, according to the NHS, are very small. Bobbie Jarvis, 24, of Worcester Park, London, claims she suffered a stroke that left her arm swinging round 'with a mind of its own' before she was … [Read more...] about Shop worker, 24, claims a stroke left her paralysed due to the Pill

First, the National Portrait Gallery refused a gift of £1m because the potential donors are accused of fuelling the US opioid scandal. Then the Tate followed suit and said it would not take future donations from the same source. Cue applause among campaigners against the addictive prescriptive painkillers. It looks like a clear-cut case of ethical standards rightly overruling a quest for cash. But is it so black and white? First, the Sackler family behind the eponymous trust that was making the donations has not been convicted of anything. They own Purdue Pharma, manufacturer of Oxycontin, one of the main drugs at the centre of the crisis. However, they deny the claims made against them. We’ll tell you what’s true.

A man's blood turned milky after a dangerous amount of fat built up in his arteries and veins. The 39-year-old - who has not been named - went to the University Hospital of Cologne suffering from vomiting, headache and reduced alertness. He quickly lost consciousness and was fitted with a breathing tube to keep him alive. Tests later revealed the level of fat in the man's blood was an astonishing 14,000 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) - with levels above 500mg/dL being considered 'very high'. With his fat levels 28 times higher than acceptable and his condition deteriorating fast, doctors were forced to 'let his blood' and replace it with a donor's. The man has made a full recovery, with medics blaming his obese frame, poor diet and uncontrolled diabetes for the life-threatening episode. Pictured are samples of the man's blood two hours after it was drawn - the white is the fat The patient was treated by Dr Philipp Koehler, from the division of haematology, immuology, … [Read more...] about Man’s blood turned MILKY due to his obesity and poor diet
When Paul McFadden stepped on a glass and cut his foot, he could hardly have expected that the incident would lead to him leaving his job. But after he phoned in sick and attended A&E, he was docked £50 from his wages. And soon afterwards, McFadden, 37, resigned from his position as an agency carer with Newcross Healthcare in Fife, Scotland because of the stress that the policy had caused. He had only worked there for two months. McFadden, who had to pay £25 out of his own pocket to pay for training when he started, was employed to make home visits to elderly people in the community. He provided personal care and had to travel using his car in between appointments at residents’ homes. Although he often worked up to 14 hours a day, including travelling time, he said he was only paid for about eight or nine hours – the time he was actually in people’s homes for appointments. He says he earned around £9 an hour, but claims that he rarely got proper … [Read more...] about Newcross Healthcare worker: ‘I left my job due to the stress of the policy’
Despite mandatory evacuations, a group of French Gulch residents have hunkered down in the mining town that sits about five miles north of the Carr Fire’s origin. “I know they don’t want us here. But a lot of us think we need to be here,” said Eric Jue, owner of the French Gulch Hotel. They might be there for a while. Officials haven’t yet decided when to repopulate the community, according to Carr Fire public information officer Gabe Lauderdale, but it likely won’t be too soon. Major roads running past the community, like Highway 299 and Trinity Mountain Road, are being used as throughways for officials as the fire burns west of the Whiskeytown area. And keeping them clear is a priority for authorities. But for a variety of reasons, about 20 to 30 residents have chosen to stay put. They’re wary of leaving French Gulch to get groceries, cigarettes or other supplies because they fear they won’t be able to get back in because of … [Read more...] about French Gulch was evacuated 11 days ago due to the Carr Fire.
