Is a threadlift worth it if I am in my 50s?

Imagine their surprise when I tell them that the ear canal is a self-cleansing organ which doesn't need to be cleaned!

You feel your tooth hurt, and the ache radiates all the way up to your temples. You feel as if there is an electrical storm going through your brain and your brain’s convulsing in sheer excruciating pain.

You’re thinking it’s the end. "Just take it out doctor, end it all."

For the past two weeks, I have been unable to get proper rest.

It wasn't because of any life stressors (such as losing a loved one); I had been started on new medications and simply couldn't fall asleep.

I was yawning every 5 seconds with my eyes closed, and despite lying on my bed for 2 hours, I was still unable to fall asleep. Needless to say, I was frustrated.

The situation was tolerable at first. However, by day 3, I was starting to lose it. I had become noticeably more irritable, clumsier and generally miserable.
