What is in the Differential Diagnosis of Fatigue?
Discussion Fatigue is a subjective feeling of decreased energy, tiredness or feeling of exhaustion.

Natural Herbs for Pain Relief
When I was in medical school, doctors only wrote prescriptions for opioid painkillers for terminal cancer patients, surgical patients and critical emergencies.

Today, 1989 may be most associated with Taylor Swift: It is the album that won her a second Grammy for Album of the Year. Not only that, it happens to be the year Swift was born--such a long, long time ago! People under 35 have no personal memory of 1980s pop culture, which is ironic since Swift's album in part pays homage to it. In the real 1989 (no offense to Swift and the 10 co-producers who made the album), all sorts of revolutions took place: Mr. Gorbachev tore down that pesky wall, for example.
