Did You Know?

Here are a few things I learned last night, thought it may be helpful to others if I share:

1. Bee stings: The stinger should be removed, but don't squeeze it. I think this releases more venom. If you have a minor reaction you can take some Benadryl, and of course if you can't breath you use your epi pen (if you have one) and go to the ER.

2. Headaches: If you are less than 50 years old and your headache isn't new, it is not likely to be something serious. If Ibuprofen isn't helping your headache you can take caffeine with it and the two together help more than one or the other.

That caffeine thing really works for me. I'm glad to hear doctors are prescribing it now.
