Don't forget that it was Syndicalism revived this RMB
I got the good news yesterday : )
Sleep or I will give you a BORING lecture on channelopathies and their myriad annoying disease clusters!i!i!
You sleep or I'll give you a lecture on lectures.
I'm on route to becoming a professor (in good time) and I am currently in my office
I'd love to (see you) try and lecture me
( ͡◉ ͜ʖ ͡◉)
is that really the best u have, child?
From 'lecturing' me on lectures to arguing apples?
I sense a shifting goal post there
How'd u like dem apples? <rofl>
Go to sleep
(I will need that lecture on lectures some other time though.. It might be useful to my future : )
my mommy said apples are bad and ur mum is wrong, she will nuke your mom with infinity bananas
If you don't go to sleep im gonna start boring u with real medical crap. I have channelopathies and there's a saying...
'Misery loves company'
Ok, here's an interesting fact for ya, kid. So you can show off in school tomorrow...
Laypeople keep using the term 'tunel vision', but the term we actually use is 'funnel vision'. Apparently the reporter misread the f for a t and it spread so widely, every one calls it 'tunnel vision' now, because of a reporter, ironically, developing funnel vision
Am I boring you sufficiently?
Let us continue with the classes then..
The way to diagnose Polymyalgia Rheumatica vs Temporal arteritis, has always been a bit obscure to me. I kinda see as a corollary to Crohns vs Ulcerative colitis. TA happens in older men, 70s and above, jaw claudication, one-sided sharp pain in the eye, redness and swelling with headache and severe arterial inflammation. Need quick steroids. PMR is diagnosed through stiffness of the axial muscles, shoulder and pelvic girdle. Both show inflammatory changes, but PMR is in younger people, m:f ratio is closer and it's abt more abt the rheumatology. TA is about the neuro-opthalmological signs. Both have high ESR, CRP and in TA with the red eye, immediate steroids and ophthal consult are a must or blindness may occur. A big chunk of the temporal artery must be biopsied because of the skip lesions (it's not contiguous)
Differentiating PMR from myositis is thru the normal CK. There is pain but no destruction of muscle and normal EMG
Mmm, this is fun...
OOC: It's 9:50 Monday morning in this part of the world and I feel slightly sick.
IC: I was sending a few cargo ships to San Sierra and then suddenly they got hijacked by Kampf ships. Grr, I'm getting you back for that one, Kampf.
Joke Break: Never cross a car mechanic with an egyptian mummy because you'll get a toot-'n'-car-man. (Horrifying joke, isn't it?)
Edit: Why isn't anyone on? It's just coming up to 5:00 for you Americans. For those in New Zealand, it's coming up to 21:00, and in Australia - well, it depends.
Of course you do : )
Come back to TEP, traitor! I bothered you into gettint that beautiful flag, only TEP deserves to have it!
Man, I cant wait till im full asso prof and writing papers to make other doctors suffer as the system has made me suffer
In a sense, medicine and academia is like the story of Diablo. The torture you receive as u slog thru the dungeons, ends up turning you into the Torturer in the end. A vicious chain of violence that helps humanity through inhuman treatment of the helpers
AND I CANT WAIT...
I didn't. See, everything in life can be explained with simple Boolean logic. If you have no idea what I'm talking about I'm saying everything can be explained by saying "yes" or "no". At least that's what I believe. Booleanism.
<drinks coffee and ignores the trolls>
Does this mean I must ignore myself?
