Fecking knees, my right one is locking so have to shuffle down the stairs. I blame regular exercise, only happens when I'm good at going to the gym.

Maybe you could try some low impact training like walking or swimming for a while?

I have noticed recently that I'm started to get digestive problems. I bring a smoothie into work and have it for breakfast, but it's killing me even if I sip it. Also, my skin is breaking out all the time. It's either I'm allergic to something or you just get more sensitive to certain foods as you get older.

I don't have that problem, my long term memory but my short term one is terrible. That's supposedly a bad sign.

I use Cortana on my phone to remind me of appointments - no typing just verbal commands

I do use the Calendar on my HTC one m8 smartphone but I don't really understand how I can make it alert me beforehand. I'm also wondering if diet coke every day might be a factor, as I read on the Daily Mail Website yesterday that fizzy drinks might be linked to forgetfulness or even Alzheimers. I've also had recent episodes where I forget my shopping and walk out the door, and get chased by the staff carrying my shopping. The worst incident was where I forgot to remove my debit card from.the ATM and walked toward my motorbike only to turn around because the atm was beeping g and realise what had happened.

The short term memory thing is also starting to catch me out too, particularly in relation to my work... if I don't write it down there's a fair chance it won't happen because I will have forgotten (about 50% of the time).

Reading all of the above...while noticing your "relatively young" ages...this is how one feels;



Do you honestly read what you write...?

No. It's for other people to read.

I had a problem with my skin and short-term memory some years ago. When I put it to my GP that I'm sure it was part of getting older he wasn't buying it. After about 4 months of tests I was diagnosed as having hyperparathyroidism. The definitive sign was that I also had osteoperosis - very unusual in men and also at the age I was then. The skin breakouts and memory issues were all part of the condition. These days thyroid issues are easily diagnosed by a simple blood test. Unfortunately GP's tend to prescribe medications for skin etc without looking at the signs and joining them up to see the underlying common denominator.

In my recent blood test the Dr said there was nothing wrong but my thyroid needed an eye kept on it as it was a bit "high" and "borderline". I have a 22 year history of skin pronlems like folliculitus and seborrheic dermatitis so I wonder is there a link.

Any elevated thyroidic activity has to have some effect somewhere, so maybe it's time to do something about it. For years I had a former GP "keeping an eye on it", at the same time it was doing irreversible damage.

What is the solution?

These days doctors tend to remove the thyroid and parathyroid glands. I have a friend in Wexford who had her's removed 12 years ago. She was in hospital for 10 days and had 47 stitches. Professor Redmond in CUH Cork developed a new procedure 2 years ago. They give you and oral solution containing nuclear isotopes, these isotopes instantly travel to the thyroid glands. Then using a small instrument that contains a geiger counter they can locate and remove them in 20 minutes. No stitches required and no scarring. You receive a slight sedation and go home the same day. I'm having the procedure in 2 weeks time. The alternative is a lifetime of drugs used to control it and monthly blood tests.

There was a time not so long ago when I had a shower after a good workout I just smelled clean, now I smell of deep heat . I think my body is trying to tell me I'm not as young as I'd like to think I am.
