#17- Rhapsodie’s Visual PAIN Diary- April 2017

More here continuing from #16- Visual PAIN Diary- Winter into Spring 2017- Worse & Better At the present time, my LEFT Forearm, LEFT Calf, RIGHT Calf, RIGHT Forearm, LEFT Rotator Cuff, RIGHT Shoulder, 2nd to smallest toe on my Left foot, are my only real PAIN ISSUES that shift and vary with bone strain in movements. 

Presently

I generally get upmost days without any pain, but my movements during the day can and sometimes do cause PAIN.  A wrong step or a wrong lift can give me lightning pain followed by swelling and an ache that diminishes without more stress if I do not repeat that motion within the next week.

Sleeping is made way more difficult, because my left calf feels like it splits when I rest on my right side for 15 minutes or any more.  The exercises for my lower left ankle/calf assigned with physical therapy have increased and advanced the fever of my right calf. It only aches like a bruise presently.

Walking with my left calf wrapped causes pain like shoving micro spears into my bones near the last place a spike of pain happened if I’m on uneven ground and barefoot.  Walking with shoes and bracing causes me to ache whenever I take a step wrong at the store, like from pushing a shopping cart.  My right calf ONLY hurts when rubbed by hand to remove the swelling that centers over the fracture, that is as yet untreated, and when the fever in the calf gets bad my body temperature rises also.

ANTIBIOTICS CONTINUE TO REMAIN THE ONLY PAIN TREATMENT that removes pain.  But doctors’ have continued to ignore this sign of infections in the body. Prescribed treatments only fiddlefarden by brain to disguise from it the reality of pain.

  • Steroid– I was allergic so only 2 doses out of 7 were taken, a week of no pain, but I really injured areas that weren’t felt as being in pain.  Over 3 months of working to recover to the point I was previous to taking a single dose.
  • Acetaminophen/Cod 3o mg & Turmeric Cur-cumin– 24 hours of sleep with 36 hours of fuzzed brain, fluffing away the pain in disguising the problems from nerve central.
  • Aspirin/Ibuprofen– 5 to 12 hours of sleep
  • NSAID Cream– Anti-Inflammatory, I’ve only used one dose so far.

The fever in my right calf has been regrowing, today April 15th my temperature was over a degree above normal. The area of swelling on my right calf is not associated with ‘bone injury,’ but surgery was mentioned to me this last week.  My left arm though is the problem we’ve discussed through this set of blog posts, with the Visual PAIN Diary- From September 2013 into April 2017,

this is the last post for that section of this PAIN Care blog. Because I believe the plate for my LEFT arm has been moving around.  And thus the movement of the plate means that the areas of pressure from grip have shifted when pressing in areas also.

My sleep is again being problematic.  Because of so much lack of care, lack of physically moving properly regularly I’m almost incapable of walking presently.  The present medical system is set up to make sure anywhere there is a problem on your body you have to go in for a separate visit.

The Left shoulder injury could probably have been avoided if there had been care for my lower arm, but there hasn’t been, and I’m still having problems with my left lower arm & the recovery exercises for the shoulder exacerbate the problems with swelling of my Left Forearm.

But beyond them is how the patient will continue to suffer into the future and the cost settlements for injuries that are as yet uncared for as well as uncalculated into the lack of care … The lack of care results have led to a weak left arm, added to taking my ability to do the enjoyable tasks I still love as shared in the beginning of the document.

NEEDING LEFT ARM BRACING FOR ALL NORMAL TASKS,

many of which are avoided because of the work stress spiking pains:

  • Holding a bowl of soup, a small notebook, anything at all really with my lower left arm results in spiking and shifting pain with a single move.
    •  It’s really hard to eat a bowl of cereal.
  • Taking out trash, on the kitchen 15 gallon can has not been done, by me in over 2 years, my previous work at McDonalds involved lifting larger trash bags regularly.
  • Sorting through my storage of season clothes exchange took over 2 weeks, pain hindered me as did my arm not being powerful enough to brace a suit on a hanger single handedly with my left hand.
    • I have not washed a sink full of dishes since the week of the Steroid NO PAIN;
  • SWOLLEN NUMB FINGERS, specifically the 2 middle ones of my left hand, started feeling pinched about the summer of 2015 after the Steroid week & this reoccured in September & October of 2016.
  • SWOLLEN HAND, if my Left Arm is not angled up to sleep, I awake with it totally numb.
More ARM Work PROBLEMS,
  • Watering my plants is uncomfortable with my 1 quart watering container. 2 hands work best.
  • Adding water to the humidifier is done with the smallest cooking pot in the house, the 2 to 3.5 cup one. That’s between 16 and 28 ounces, a gallon of milk has to be lifted with 2 hands.
  • Lifting my drink mug with my left hand aches.
  • I do not comb my hair or brush my teeth with my left hand anymore either.
  • Washing Dishes, 1 piece at a time,
  • After doing anything normally easy for over 1 hour,
    • except for using the typing keyboard, it’s okay with resting my arm on the brace pad on my tucked down bear.
  • I haven’t sewn, sketched, crafted, read a book that weighs more than a Harlequin in over 6 months because my left arm can’t support the weight or the use angle stresses presently.

Just earlier this week a metal L door handle touched the upper edge of the YELLOW ORANGE bruise pain on the picture, the pressure felt like having a hand slap onto a bloody purple bruise beneath the skin. That area has never caused me any pain in the past; I would rate that at somewhere near ONE but less than that.  It’s the persistent re-ache that is most annoying.

Because months have passed since my last entry I’m adding details from the present situation and the pain shifting.  A situation which the doctors have listed as chronic pain, they’re stupid about that, but then they only read what others share with them before making a diagnosis. The February 2018 post demonstrates how the so called ‘chronic pain’ isn’t, it’s in fact circumstantial driven by life AND lack of proper treatment.

#16- Visual PAIN Diary- Winter into Spring 2017- Worse & Better

The pain splitting AND swelling that resulted from the shoulder bracing demonstrated to me that also the injuries of my left calf were splintering as I feel towards my knee and towards my ankle.  With use my left arm is splintering towards my wrist.  This is not normal but maybe people with dense bones are more likely to have this happen because of the greater bone resistance to splitting breaks which separate bone parts completely.

Winter & Spring 2017 Swelling & Splitting Pain Tied Together

At present my Lower LEFT Arm suffers swelling and more, pictures from February to April of 2017 are demonstrative visuals. As you can see with the pictures, the swelling green section is over the lower forearm bone, it has not reached the wrist bones, but it is very close.

Osteoclasts were not allowed to work the separated bone into the freshened injury after the Father’s Day Fall of 2014.  After pushing a part of the bone down behind the plate as it was in my arm then did not realign on the injury properly, thus it did not heal onto the base bone properly.

This is only part of Rhapsodie’s issues, but having bones improperly cared for can weaken the overall body of any person.

  • How do multiple repeated spreading fractures weaken a person?
  • How does the lack of correct bone care hurt and add problems beyond pain?

There are definite answers to these questions, but in consideration of my left arm, more and more physical weakness hinders my physical activity and the muscle mass decrease has allowed my injured bone areas to sprawl with greater touchable ease and the lack of use has caused more body problems as well as fear that Osteoarthritis & Rheumatoid Arthritis will be suffered more than it ever should have because of NO DOCTORAL CARE & self patient education.

A person should work to retain body balances, if they do not work towards this through their life they could suffer more and more as we see repeatedly.  Originally the PAIN problems I had were just rated by me as accidents in which I would heal from with time.  But the years of growing issues, evidenced on these pages demonstrates how initial pain problems diagnosed incorrectly can expand and become worse problems for both patients and their serving medical people.  Especially when medical people don’t take the time to investigate more than ‘tell us how you would rate the pain?’  Followed by let’s prescribe a ‘drug.’

To me that’s not work to investigate or learn anything, if you reported to the local police that you saw a car off the road in an odd area with skid tracks through the snow an investigative vehicle would be sent to the location. The problem would be taken care of before the police left the area abandoned with no care for the people.

If the work to pursue diagnostics was done with a little more accurate understanding of the real pain being felt with the medical requests then there could be better care with hopefully less cost as well as time wasted for both the patient searching for care and the doctors who are working to provide care.

  • Why is it if a patient talks about pain, there is no care given?

NO wonder there are so many people suffering ‘prescription drug problems.’  For me, pain is a sign of problems, taking drugs to minimize pain weaken my body and add to problems I could get.

Presently

I generally get upmost days without any pain, but my movements during the day can and sometimes do cause Pain.  A wrong step or a wrong lift can give me lightning pain followed by swelling and an ache that diminishes without more stress.  Sleeping is made way more difficult, because my left calf feels like it splits when I rest on my right side for 15 minutes or any more

#14- Visual PAIN Diary- August 2014 to Summer 2016 INACCURATE Records SUFFERED

So ended the previous post- #13- Visual PAIN Diary- July 2014- Painful Pokey Boney Walk The amount on a pain scale was about a 6 with my arm down, but with the arm up against my chest it was only depleted with shoving the Pokey Boney back into place behind the plate.  It didn’t go back onto the bone, but at least it wasn’t sticking out any more.

August & Fall 2014- Frictional Discomfort

There were months while I rubbed at a very tiny protuberance that  shifted and rubbed behind the plate that hid the bone from my fingers.  Sometimes a boney section pecked out from between my solid bone area and the plate that remained as a fracture support.  My arm continued to suffer shifting and rubbing feelings of pain, until I finally pressed it down to a more comfortable location multiple months later.

But the bruising on my arm was continually being felt.  In fact to this day I can touch the exact locations I rubbed and shifted against for months, seeking comfort with my Left Forearm, as are pictured here:

But multiple inaccurate reports used by doctors & medical technologists have caused them to fake in the estimates while not doing proper examining.

The ONLY accepted official report about my 2005 surgery was the false one stuffed in my files.  The X-rays of that arm show glass or gravel, like the plate was to be seen as, but NO CARE HAS BEEN GIVEN, because it has been the patient’s word against the doctor’s inaccurate testimony.

How can we as patient’s continue to accept these inaccuracies AND live by them when we have the exact opposite actually happening to us.  Well we human’s do like to be dumb and ignorant when it is too much work to fight for truth and right.  Isn’t that why Hitler was so successful with the persecution camps?

The Infrequent & continual rubbing of my lower arm resulted in getting the bruised deepening area feeling on the bone,  but there was ALWAYS another item keeping my fingers separated from the bone.

  • Wouldn’t a removed plate on my left arm have allowed me to feel the touch of my fingers against the bone?
    • For many years there have areas of my lower left arm that do not feel the pressure of my fingers, since 2000, and it still continues.

Presently I feel body areas under my right hand and fingers on my left arm, but my left arm does not feel the same fingers any deeper than the skin, no matter how deep I push against the painful areas of my Left Lower arm.  The pressure push feels like pushing into a deep raw bruise.


Since Then

There were many interstitial circumstances, at least from my living time, varying things between September 2014 and the Summer of 2016, but most were minor enough to not be specifically remembered.

But during the Winter and Spring of 2016 I had

  • trouble with my right shoulder, causing me to use my LEFT Forearm a lot more than over the previous 2 years.
  • My left shoulder was definitely weakened because of not being exercised properly because a leaning function in our narrow hall, 23 inches wide OR less with sliding door only partially open, in
  • July 2016, caused me to dislocate my Left Shoulder ROTATOR CUFF in more than 3 areas.

This was proven after it was brought back into position August 28th, the MRI results done in October 2016 showed there was more than one area of injury which I’m still getting care for.  The only way I was taken seriously by the doctor was my lie about the so called level of pain I was feeling, since it was disruptive AND no care for deeper injuries was ever received.

This wasn’t nice, but it was easier than suffering more shitty assessments, but the original shoulder brace shifted something else in my lower left arm…

#06- Inaccurate PAIN Assessments because of no Patient Pain Understanding

From previous post- #05- Inaccurate Doctoral PAIN Assessments based on Guesses– As stated previously ‘with no relational corresponding pain chart there is more space for inaccuracies.’ There is also more likelihood of not doing more work based on the inaccurate assessments already made and reported on by doctors.  This in turn enhances the likelihood that a basic to care for problem is made worse, like I am having.

More Than the Basic Details For Pain Assessments- Dr. Savage

There are also the depth details of pain assessments done that do not necessarily have corresponding values for all people.

One article for assessing chronic pain states, “For a doctor to get a good sense of your chronic pain, just pointing to a single face or number isn’t enough. Your doctor will need some context, says Seddon R. Savage, MD, incoming president of the American Pain Society and an adjunct associate professor of anesthesiology at Dartmouth Medical School in Hanover, N.H. “I ask people to remember the worst pain they’ve ever experienced in their lives,’ Savage tells WebMD. ‘It might be a kidney stone or childbirth. That level of pain becomes the benchmark to which we compare the current pain.’”  I never was pregnant, and I have never had a kidney stone, so my estimate doesn’t even relate to others that way if it was ever requested.

For Patients- Describing Your Chronic Pain

As we have already seen with the information of this document, the assessments by doctors are based on the searches they have done, but “Your doctor needs to know not just how much the pain hurts, but how the pain hurts, says Savage[ in the article from WebMD entitled Using the Pain Scale: How to Talk About Pain.

The kind of pain you’re feeling can say a lot about the cause, experts say. Cohen says that pain that’s caused by tissue injury — like arthritis or a back injured while shoveling snow — tends to be like a dull ache.

But nerve pain, which could be caused by many conditions, such as diabetes and carpal tunnel syndrome, typically causes a more distinctive shooting pain. Others describe it as burning, buzzing, or electrical pain. Nerve pain is also associated with other sensations that aren’t painful in themselves, like tingling or numbness, Cohen says.

Savage says that it’s also important to discuss any variations in your pain. How does it change during the day? What makes it hurt more? What makes it hurt less?

When you see a pain expert, go in prepared. Be ready to describe your chronic pain, as specifically as you can, along with details about when the pain started. The more information you have, the easier it will be for your doctor to help treat your pain…”

The stink of this is that doctors assess a person as having chronic pain, without ever even referring the patient to a PAIN EXPERT.  In fact there may be legitimate pain issues that are totally ignored, like the fact that a broken bone happened, but there are multiple bones in the area and the assessments of
X-rays, CT scans, and MRI tests were not ever examined by a person who looked at the correct placement of the pain.

An estimated doctoral assessment of chronic pain does not mean that the pain is constant or consistently the same or in the exact same location, but without an accurate way of making assessments, doctors are likely to do what is easy instead of what is needed.  The WebMD article continues with more information of great value for people seeking to get treatment that is accurate.  But all of the wonderful advice of the article  will only work if the patient persists in working at getting accurate assessments.

How Does Your Chronic Pain Affect You?

Beyond the severity and the type of chronic pain, there’s a third factor you need to discuss. “It’s really important to talk to your doctor about how your pain affects your life,” says Savage. It’s a crucial and often overlooked detail… Savage says that you should think about the specific ways your chronic pain is affecting you.

  • Does pain wake you up at night?
  • Has chronic pain made you change your habits?
  • Do you no longer go on walks because the pain is too severe?
  • Has it affected your performance on the job — maybe even putting your ability to work in jeopardy?

Giving specifics about how your chronic pain is impinging on your life and changing your behavior is key, Savage says. ‘It helps your doctor understand how much you’re suffering and appreciate the pain as [only part of the] problem that needs treatment,’ she tells WebMD.”

Notice how I varied that doctor’s statement.  It was done because my doctors have taken it upon themselves to offer assessments based on their inaccurate work and because I had not read through this article with articulation for the types of pain to share previously.  This means there is a need for doctors to supply for patient’s corresponding information that can be related to by the doctor…

#05- Inaccurate Doctoral PAIN Assessments based on Guesses

Started from previous post- #04- Inaccurate PAIN Assessments with JUST Rate Pain from 0 to 10– ‘How much pain are you in? Rate your levels from 0 to 10.’  With just that question how do the doctor’s really assess my pain? 

  • Based on their previous patients?
  • Based on their own personal experiences?
  • Based on what they think the problem really is?

How do any these assessments accurately assess MY PAIN? 

In fact THEY DO NOT, it’s all a guess for them!

The work of the doctors could improve if they did all the estimating steps, mentioned IN DIFFERENT PAIN ASSESSMENT METHODS LIKE THE SOCRATES pain assessment, but in general a patient may get 10 minutes with a doctor or less because a 20 minute visit involves, weighing, nurse recording information, and this is all part of the 20 minutes allowed for the patient.  My personal experience has shown that most doctors in the medical field do not even do the whole amount of work with asking all of the questions with the SOCRATES (pain assessment)[s] method, maybe because it just takes time OR maybe because of all the insecurities legal hassles have added to the doctors work.

The SOCRATES pain assessment AND Dr. Savages methods at least get more details than a basic rating to detail pain.  Rhapsodie’s method for improving the assessing can also be good, but it requires a lot of work through a society of medical people and patients.  So even though it will be shared later the relational corresponding pain chart is not necessarily a good thing because it has less personalization in corresponding factors than the work of Dr. Savage does.

SOCRATES (pain assessment) Information

This information is taken from Wikipedia.com, there may be more details in other places, but please my assessment of my personal care corresponding to the assessment first please.  My results are placed in [square brackets] next to the corresponding questions:

SOCRATES is a mnemonic acronym used by emergency medical services, doctors, nurses and other health professionals to evaluate the nature of pain that a patient is experiencing.

Meaning of the [SOCRATES] acronym

The acronym is used to gain an insight into the patient‘s condition, and to allow the Health Care Provider to develop a plan for dealing with it.[1][2]

  • Site – Where is the pain? Or the maximal site of the pain. [PARTIALLY ASKED]
  • Onset – When did the pain start, and was it sudden or gradual? Include also whether if it is progressive or regressive. [PARTIALLY ASKED]
  • Character – What is the pain like? An ache? Stabbing? [NEVER ASKED]
  • Radiation – Does the pain radiate anywhere? (See also Radiation.) [NEVER ASKED]
  • Associations – Any other signs or symptoms associated with the pain? [NEVER ASKED]
  • Time course – Does the pain follow any pattern? [NEVER ASKED]
  • Exacerbating/Relieving factors – Does anything change the pain? [What drugs do you use to care for the pain? The best pain treatment for me has come with the use of prescribed ANTIBIOTICS!]
  • Severity – How bad is the pain? [RATE your pain FROM 0 to 10]

This was from Wikipedia.com at this page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SOCRATES_(pain_assessment)

But there is a lot more information needed, especially when the information gathered does not get enough detail to make an accurate assessment or if an individual is not exactly the norm.  It’s a lot easier for a busy person to say, “this person is suffering …” when they do not do the work, then when they take the energy, time and effort to make an accurate assessment.  In fact a person like me can be diagnosed as being a drug abuser or suffering chronic pain because the doctors have no true idea of what they are hearing from me.

As stated previously ‘with no relational corresponding pain chart there is more space for inaccuracies.’ There is also more likelihood of not doing more work based on the inaccurate assessments already made and reported on by doctors.  This in turn enhances the likelihood that a basic to care for problem is made worse, like I am having…

#04- Inaccurate PAIN Assessments with JUST Rate Pain from 0 to 10

From previous post- #03. Inaccurate PAIN Assessments with A HIGH PAIN Tolerance– In the last 2 years I’ve suffered a lot more because doctors have failed to accurately assess situations based both on recorded lies in my files and the incomplete pain assessments.

Pain Assessments

The reasons for the relational corresponding pain chart are because of the repeated assessments done inaccurately, in my personal assessments, with me.  Please forgive me for only sharing a part of the situation, there are many areas that still have not been taken care of properly, but the pain assessments that lead investigations into injuries can cause a lot of problems if done wrong.

When a doctor asks you how much pain you are in do they do the correct work or could they do more? 

I can guarantee from the services for me that THEY CAN DEFINITELY DO MORE.

Inaccurate General Pain Assessments

At times more assessment is taken, but often not by the doctors.  In fact prescriptions for physical therapy, pain killers, and/or other drugs could result because the tests done are not accurately assessed based on the pain response by the patient to the “Rate your pain level from 0 to 10,”  which is too singular to make an accurate assessment.  Any person with a higher OR lower pain tolerance can hugely vary based on their personal rating of their pain as well as their body tolerances with pain.

With HIGH pain tolerance a person is less likely to be reacting like they are in horrid pain, but their pain problems could be tremendously worse than a person with a much lower pain tolerance while being uncared for because of the inaccurate way that doctors’ have assessed the situations. This was displayed for me because I had to assume how other people would be feeling with the injury of my LEFT Arm Rotator Cuff to fake in a number to get attention.  The MRI proved my reasoning and actions were correct, and my other personal experiences are some evidence of this.  The sample of experiences showed earlier are only some samples if there was a relational corresponding pain chart that more accurately fit information better treatment could result.

Another aspect of the problems comes with the assessment by doctors of Chronic Pain, when a patient like me hear that say, “My pain is not always there, it is not the same in the exact same area after a week of suffering it.  The pain I have at times totally disappears, so how can they make the assessment that the pain is ‘Chronic.’ In fact my perception of the word Chronic is, ‘It never ends and it never changes and it never goes away.’  My one experience with a pain that felt Chronic was a migraine that just grew for over 5 hours.  Nothing else I have had has felt like that.

The least thing that could be done is for doctors to have correspondence about other life situations and our pain assessments of those. Would you please relate any previous experiences so I can understand your rating now? Like a migraine or an infection or another injury.  Someone like me could say, ‘I fractured my lower left calf in gym at school, walked home, took some aspirin, wrapped my leg in ice, then went to the bedroom and put the bone in place, I passed out once, the pain was about a 6.  But it wasn’t bad enough to make me throw up.’

How Pain Assessments Generally Begin

Wouldn’t it be more relational for them when I’m telling them now that I felt like passing out with pain from some recent physical therapy with my lower left leg?  At least sharing the information that after passing out for over 30 minutes and standing up with an injury to my right calf, my pain was about at 7, but I walked out of it would give them some correspondence in understanding my meaning.  In general with no relational corresponding pain chart or more details for pain assessments there is more space for inaccuracies when doctors ONLY ask, ‘How much pain are you in? Rate your levels from 0 to 10.’  With just that question how do the doctor’s really assess my pain?

  • Based on their previous patients?
  • Based on their own personal experiences?
  • Based on what they think the problem really is?

How do any these assessments accurately assess MY PAIN?

In fact THEY DO NOT, it’s all a guess for them!

#01. Inaccurate PAIN Assessments CAN CAUSE MORE BODY DAMAGE

For the last years my doctors have been asking me to rate my pain AND recently I also had a therapist ask that question.  But the majority of the time they are basing my 0 to 10 ratings on their previous experience and the LIES in my medical files that have grown with people that really don’t care about me.  Rate your pain from 0 to 10, how often have you heard that question?

The question of pain assessments by doctor’s and the veracity of their conclusions has given place to many articles.  Like the one found at Web MD [b]y R. Morgan Griffin stating some of the problems I have suffered from

“…’Pain is always personal,’ says F. Michael Ferrante, MD, director of the UCLA Pain Management Center in Los Angeles. “It’s invisible to other people looking at you — and that can lead to a lot mistrust and difficulties in relationships.”

Whether you have low back pain, or migraines, or nerve pain, people might not understand or believe what you’re going through. That suspicion might not only be shared by your in-laws or your boss, but even your doctor — and that can have serious repercussions, preventing you from getting the pain treatment you need…”

The least thing that could be done is for doctors to have correspondence about other life situations and our pain assessments of those.

Would you please relate any previous experiences so I can understand your rating now? Like a migraine or an infection or another injury.

Someone like me could say, ‘I fractured my lower left calf in gym at school, walked home, took some aspirin, wrapped my leg in ice, then went to the bedroom and put the bone in place, I passed out once, the pain was about a 6.  But it wasn’t bad enough to make me throw up.’  I mean wouldn’t that be more relational for them when I’m telling them now that I feel with pain from physical therapy with my lower left leg?  After passing out for over 30 minutes and standing up with an injury to my right calf, my pain was about at 7, but I walked out of it.

Recently variable accidents have caused me to seek out care by doctors, because the original incidents were not so physically dehibilitatingly painful to me that I took an ambulance to the hospital and the time between the original injury and the first seeking of care was very broad.  This has caused the results of NO CARE partly because there have been no equivalency results of my statements of pain on a good generalized scale,  Just OVER A WEEK AGO, even sharing my pain ratings in comparison with the Bloody urinary tract infection had the exercise therapist rejecting my comment, because it wasn’t in relation to the injury he was working to care for.  But the fact that my LEFT Rotator Cuff was ‘a legitimate injury’, he was willing to hear me to some degree in response to my tolerance level variances.

There hasn’t been any doctor who has taken the time to read the complete record of statements from me, like the fact that the best pain treatment has been ANTIBIOTICS that in addition to MY SUPER HIGH PAIN TOLERANCE as was shown with a urinary tract infection (UTI) some years ago has led me to suffering more and more with time and NO TREATMENT to care for the real problems…
