"One of the common mythologies in eating disorders is that they are rare and can only be managed by specialists. The figures show that they are not uncommon and all healthcare professionals should be trained in managing them." @DashaNicholls@LBC about �bit.ly/3lt6Kqcu
ALSO. Monkeypox is a DNA VIRUS. SARS-CoV-2 is an RNA virus. Anyone saying that one has caused the other or somehow branches from it is NOT WORTH YOUR TIME. They’re DIFFERENT viruses. Monkeypox is NOT NEW. It has been around. Science > Conspiracy Theories. Please and thank you.
Currently working on a thread this morning all about Monkey Pox because I am getting increasingly irritated with all the misinformation AND deliberate disinformation currently circulating. Before anyone asks, YES WE HAVE A VACCINE. It’s the Smallpox vaccine.
Keeping a close eye of the latest updates from @UKHSA on Monkeypox cases confirmed in England. The latest two cases (same household) are not linked to the previous confirmed case announced on 7 May. gov.uk/government/new…
James' health deteriorated over many years and, despite looking fit and well, he was admitted to hospital more than 20 times. "It comes down to training and awareness. Getting help early could prevent so many people from being admitted to hospital." bbc.co.uk/news/health-61…
A significant number of HCP still believe that obesity can be entirely prevented if people “adopt a healthy lifestyle”.
This is against all the scientific evidence.
This leads to stigma, weight bias and negative attitudes towards those with obesity.
The Guardian & Labour called for more/harsher lockdown measures.

Yes, it could be a symptom of cancer that needs checking, but even if it is caused by something else, it may be something that can be treated or eased, and no one should live with unnecessary and excessive pain.
If you experience vaginal or pelvic pain during sex, do see your GP.
Also your periods should not be so painful they stop you doing your normal daily activities. If your periods are more painful than normal, or so painful they get in the way of you living your life, do see a GP

Another key symptom type when it comes to the gynaecological cancers is pain.
These types of pain could be a sign of a cancer:
⚡ pain during sex
⚡ lower back pain
⚡ more painful periods than normal
⚡ persistent pelvic, abdominal or vaginal pain
