Does it go away by itself?

Hi, I've been on to some online men's forums regarding Phimosis and some men have said that they were too embarrassed to see a GP (so instead tried stretching) and eventually it went away by itself. Is this true/what is the likelihood of this happening? Does it depend on the severity? thanks

Nighttime heartburn

Hi I have GERD and get nighttime heartburn very regularly. I’ve tried avoiding large fatty meals in the evening and I take Gaviscon but its not that effective anymore. I’m really suffering from loss of sleep. What foods should I be eating to prevent the burn feeling and to help me drift off? Thanks

so much energy

Hi - I’ve heard that oversleeping and lack of energy tend to be linked to depression. What mental health issues are linked to excessive energy? I have so much energy in the day and then at night it’s hard to relax and feel tired enough to drift off to sleep. At night time my brain refuses to shut do...

Re: Dismissed because of depression

My employers were very good. There were some issues lower down the ranks that contributed to my last onset of depression but once my rep got others involved and they realised their mistake they were very good. I got counselling at work and they put me on light duties when i wanted to return to work ...
