Funny ASR BloopersNov 13, 2009
I had a report today in which ASR interpreted a doctor's name as "Dr. Vagina."  LMAO.  His name was not even close to the word "vagina."  I had one a couple of months ago I will never forget.  ASR:  "The patient is going to hell."  Corrected:  "The patient is going to Iowa."  How do you get 'hell" out of Iowa?  LOL.  If nothing else, ASR is good for a few laughs on occasion. ...

Medical Question - Does Anyone Know? (sm)Apr 27, 2013
I know you can get muscle and joint aches and pains with statin drugs.  My question is, and I can't find this anywhere, is - I've been taking atorvastatin for about 10 months now, and I've only started having aches and cramps in my legs for about 3 months.  Has anyone heard of it taking that long before the pain starts?  (I stopped taking it for 3 weeks to see if the pain would stop, and it didn't, so I started taking them again).  I'm going to a ...

Should I Mention About A Possible Medical Issue Or NotDec 27, 2009
Some time back I mentioned to my DIL that her father should get his heart checked out. I noticed he had creases in his earlobes. The reason I mentioned is was for the fact I had a cardiologist who says this over and over in dictations, then when studying further found it could mean heart problems. Well, you would have thought I had tried to kill someone, everyone sprang into action stating there was nothing wrong with him at all. Fast forward a few years, DIL's father just recovering from q ...

Medical Transcription And ChemotherapyFeb 02, 2013
I have a question for any MT who is undergone chemotherapy. About a year ago, I was diagnosed with cancer. I underwent extensive abdominal surgery to remove the tumor and had a very difficult and prolonged recovery time. I was unable to begin chemotherapy until a couple of months after my surgery. At the time I had my surgery, with the help of the hospital's social services, I applied for SSI/SSDI. After I had recovered from surgery, my oncologist had recommended that I try to work ...

Spasms In Face, No Help From Medical PersonnelOct 28, 2009
I have these spasms going on. First had botox injections which gave the impression of perhaps having had stroke on one side of my face. Those really lasted about 1 day as far as taking away the spasms, the lack of facial expression went on for about 4 months. Other day went to another neurologist and prescribed benzodiazepines, taken those for 2 days now and see absolutely no improvement. Has anyone else had these and if so, what worked for you? ...

Need To Tell My Grown Children About Medical IssuesOct 29, 2009
I have always considered myself in excellent health especially with all the health issues I type on each and every day with people younger or near my age.

I went back to an older aunt and she could think of no one in the family with this. I since have been diagnosed with a kidney diseas ...

Pros And Cons On Medical Marijuana???Jun 08, 2012
Well here in California, we have passed a prop that OK's the sale of marijuana in pot shops, although it restricts exactly what areas they can run these businesses.  Such as they must be at least 1 mile from schools and churches.  Other restrictions too.  But evidently the people of California do not want to make medical marijuana illegal.  So they are still in business.   In my opinion, selling marijuana is beneficial for patients with chronic conditions, such as ...

Medical Insurance Coverage: Will We Receive Any?Nov 15, 2012
Now that the elections are over, it seems Obamacare will be going into effect. What do you think the MTSOs are going to do?  The new law will require all businesses with over 50 employees to offer insurance.     It really would be nice if the large companies did the right thing and offered insurance without having to meet line count guidelines. Insurance being tied to line count always leaves a bad taste in the mouth of employees because when work is low, you ...

"The lights were low" - no, this is not the beginning of a romance novel, it's how it was when I walked into this doctor's family practice clinic.  I felt really uptight - I don't have insurance, and was expecting the worst, some zinger of a bill at the very end, some fee, something they hadn't told me about. The front office was kind of cramped, I admit, the phone ringing, scheduling...but then this calm relaxed medical assistant led me to the room, took my blood press ...
