In honor of Migraine and Headache Awareness Month, the American Migraine Foundation invited 4 headache specialists to answer your questions about migraine. They’ll be answering questions from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. ET, so ask them anything!
Status Thursday, June 11, 7pm ET: Wow -- this took off in a way we could have never imagined. This thread is closed but we're looking into ways to get as many questions as we can answered. Thank you SO much for joining the conversation. Please look to the American Migraine Foundation Resource Library in the meantime. This certainly won't be the last AMA.

Title says it all. Was experience my breasts hurting a lot more and random places in my right one where I could feel lumps but no pain. I chalked it up to hormones or something irregular going on in my body but when they didn’t go away after two weeks, I made an appointment.
Doctor felt it and immediately made me two appointments. One for ultrasound and the other for a specialist. When I went for an ultrasound, the lady ran over and you could see dark spots where the lumps were. Went to the specialist with that info and after another appointment and a whole lot of worrying, my test results came back negative!!
Moral of the story ladies, don’t wait. If you feel something off in your body, don’t think it’s all in your head. It’s better to be safe than sorry. Its good to have peace of mind, and my heart goes all the women whose test results weren’t as lucky.

Unfortunately, I am not able to respond to every question, but I will plan to revisit the conversation later on and answer more of your questions!

‘Hello Boss, I am Jaye. Captain Hoshiguma said I am more suited to do things here, so I’ve come. I know about seafood, can cook, and is alright with knives, I should be able to help.
A seafood hawker from Lungmen who looks fierce and has come with Hoshiguma’s recommendation. Much news about him has been spread in Lungmen’s underworld.
Initially other operators thought that Hoshiguma introduced a fierce character. But after interacting for some time, everyone found out that he is always quiet, likes to read and is good at cooking. He is a little cautious when interacting with others, and will set up his stall at the shopping district like Croissant, to make some snacks for other operators. Actually he has a very good personality.
Adept with knives, he is now a specialist operator on the battlefield.
This post will hopefully try to explain the differences in brawler design and their impact in the viability in the meta
Every other week, you'll see the same post: is Mortis trash or not? This is a boring post that inevitably comes up but it leads to a deeper insight in brawler design
Simply put, Mortis along with others, isn't designed like say Spike or Brock or Pam, he is a specialist.
What is a specialist? Specialists are brawlers that do one particular thing incredibly well but have major flaws which handicap their accessibility to the average and even above average player but to a player that knows what they are doing, a specialist can be incredibly powerful
Specialists have a niche, a very specific niche and are only strong in a couple of game modes/maps. I tell you, these brawlers aren't meant to be consistent, they are meant to be hit or miss by design, they either succeed in absolutely shredding the enemy team or they loose hard
Specialists also tend to be very matchup d... keep reading on reddit ➡
30 year old female, 145 lbs, 5'8.
Any help is incredibly appreciated as I'm desperate. I will be detailed as possible recounting everything.
In December of 2015, I woke up with intense head pressue and under-eye swelling. Made an appointment w/ regular doctor. From there, I've had many refferals. The pressure and under eye swelling got more intense while I slept. I would wake up with my brain feeling like it was on fire. After standing up for a bit, the pressure dissipates. This makes sleeping utterly impossible. If I am not upright, I'm in severe brain pain. Fast forward to 2017, I meet my rheumatologist. She Dx's me with Sjogrens syndrome. I have all the classic symptoms. Joint pain, exhaustion, dryness, numbness. I explain in depth to her everything happening. She cannot make a correlation between the Sjogrens & what I'm experiencing. She monitors me, but that's about it.
Many testing/refferals later and second, third and 8th opinions, this is who I've seen and what I've... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm becoming depressed because I can't fix the problem. My hands fatigue on me when I use the computer for anything now, or hold my phone, or a book. I have done nerve tests (results came back fine), I've been to orthopedics, rheumatologists, physical therapists, and nothing has helped. I do exercises and stretches every day, I have been on steroids for inflammation, I rest, I have done so much and I just want to be able to game again. My grip strength is strong, but the second I start using the mouse and keyboard or even controller my hands just ache and fatigue on me.
Is anyone else out there dealing with this issue? Or am I the only one? I'm starting to lose hope. I can't enjoy my hobbies. I can't lift weights. I can't play the piano. I can't game. I can't draw. I can't read. And worst of all I can hardly do my job (graphic designer).
As per the GW Grand Tournament book, Specialists detachments aren’t allowed. This probably isn’t new news but I was wondering about people’s thoughts of how this will affect tournament meta.
From what I can see this heavily nerfs armies like Imperial Guard and others with several good specialist options.
Personally my Servitor maniple is gone which heavily degrades the competence and synergies of the list.
Any thoughts on how this is will impact the meta?
I am just testing the waters here. I am usually bombarded when I mention my career so I thought this would be a great experience for some.
I’ll be doing the AMA today, if this is something the community would like and I’ll answer questions throughout the day. No messages, just utilize the comment section.
I am an IT Specialist who is contracted to the US Antarctica Project and I work on Systems that support ATCs and Meteorologists. I am preparing on heading down in August for my first season and will do an AMA when I get back to answer questions about life and IT on the ice.
Edit: all done guys. I’ll answer a few more questions and then I’m bouncing. I’ll be sure to follow up in February! I am going to be blogging my journey so feel free to PM me for that info.
More than a decade ago, I would enjoy the Judo subforum of the Underground Forum (also known as MMA.tv) and read stories of Newaza specialists who were great as if not greater than the BJJ and Sambo (and Catch Wrestling) masters of renown. So here I am now wondering once again since it's no longer 2009, if this is a good list of the best Newaza specialists in Judo history (in no specific order)?

- Tsunetane Oda

Correction: Its been brought to my attention that 'massage parlor' has a negative connotation ('happy endings' , 'rub and tug') and that the correct reference should be 'massage therapist' , 'massage spa', or 'massage center'. I did not mean any offense and apologize to any professional I might have offended.
Wanted to sound out what you guys thinks about this.
I focus on writing for technology clients. Within tech there are a couple of pretty common subjects I commonly write about (IoT, AR) as well as a few slightly more exotic ones (backup and storage). For the latter, I leverage the fact that I worked at a company in the industry for several years. FWIW I am pretty fluent in technology and pursuing an industry certification in cloud computing.
From time to time I deal with prospects (who I pitch or they find me) that want somebody ultra-specialized in what their company does.
Just now, for instance, I got an unsolicited LinkedIn message from a content manager who wanted to know if I could help with a writing project. She was looking for somebody with "several years' experience writing about data fabrics and in memory computing and who has an expert-level understanding of these topics." The person who has this experience gets to write their blogs.

Hi guys, I'm new to this subreddit so feel free to correct me if I'm not following the rules correctly.
So this post is not really about debunking, but more a statement on how wrong some journalist may select the person they interview for history related papers.
Two weeks ago the respectable french newspaper Le Monde published a series of aricles on the Vikings and Viking Mythology. One of them was an interview whose title was "La figure du viking est bourrée de clichés" (The figure of the Viking is full of cliché/misconception).
Who was the person interviewed? One of the several french scholars active in this area of research? Nope, who cares about what some obscure professor has to say about his own area of experctise! The man was Nota Bene, one of the most famous french youtuber in the field of pop history. One of the aims of this short interview was suposedly to go beyond the common misconceptions about Nordic Mythology.

I'm here to evangelise about Kapustin's music but am also pretty happy to talk about what it's like to be a career pianist, and chat about my other musical interests and hobbies. I'd love to keep the focus on Kapustin mostly, but will answer all sorts of questions!

I left my previous job in the financial industry due to a toxic work environment. Was looking for a new position when Covid-19 "hit". About 3 months ago, I took a part time job at HD as an OFA. I like the job, but sometimes I really feel it, physically, at the end of the day. I'm 53. Today, I was offered a position as a full-time flooring specialist. Would welcome any and all opinions. The search for a full-time position in a field I have experience in is obviously not going well. I do enjoy working at HD and I enjoy my co-workers. Management seems pretty chill. Thanks!
This is a very embarrassing and sensitive topic for me too speak on but it’s something that has caused about 70% of my depression and pretty much is ruining my life for that past 5 years or so . I’ve seen a dentist and pretty much didn’t get any help but a answer saying it could be a sinus issue. I’ve visited 2 primary doctors years ago one saying they didn’t smell anything . I do have tonsils stones that I try to remove but I think the problem is deeper than that( idk for sure but that’s my opinion) is there a specialist I can see In Philadelphia too get some kind of help or answer with this issue . I do brush 2x everyday, floss with a water pik & use mouthwash so please no rude comments about it could be about not brushing my teeth.
I have an 11 year old little dog, I got her when she was 7 and she has very bad teeth. We've had a dental every year since, two times with extractions. Two vets, both said that there are several teeth that are bad, but should not be removed due to a high possibility of jaw fracture.
Moved to a new state, new vet, annual dental. I mentioned the previous vets' opinions. New vet took all xrays, and called back saying that those teeth are so loose, there is no risk. I even asked if he meant that there's just standard risks of fracture. He said no, they're so loose, they'll come right out, and they're in bad shape and it's better to nip it in the bud. I assumed they got that much worse and he knew what he was doing, which is my fuck up.
He did end up breaking the jaw.
There's exactly one specialist in our area, and she's here twice a month. She happens to be here, just today and tomorrow, booked up but said she'd recommend other vets in the area. She received the xrays before and after,... keep reading on reddit ➡
*EDIT (original post below): thank you so much for all the responses! I really appreciate you all taking the time to answer, especially health care professionals, who tend to be so busy. I'd forgotten to mention I'm in Japan and English isn't the doctor's first language, although health care here is rather precarious so I don't think language matters.
It'll be a while longer till I see a specialist but I'll post an update when I have one myself.

During a recent eye checkup, the ophthalmologist did a retina scan and said the color of the right retina was a bit off, which indicated that "something was wrong with [my] brain" and I should see a specialist. He wouldn't tell me what could be wrong, so here I am freaking out because that's kind of a serious statement to make!

As, primarily, a Moze player I have to admit that I'm quite pleased with the state of the game right now. It took some doing, but our favorite bot-jock is probably in the best place she's ever been. Not only is she dealing damage, but she has a comfortable amount of build variety, and plenty of options for viable weapons.
Because of that, I decided to take a new angle on the traditional "Bullet Hoze" build. What I came up with is "Specialist Moze".
I decided to present her to the community this week as she can be very gear specific, and I wanted to make sure people have the best chance of farming up the necessary rolls to get the most out of her.
That being said, with the right rolls, she takes advantage of some powerful synergies for a potent combination of mobbing and bossing. First we'll start with the skill tree and I'll explain the thoughts behind my choices, then we'll get to gear options.

Most "poor" families don't have 200,000 dollars to be "stolen" from anywhere for anything? And sixteen year old poor kids don't drive mommy and daddy's car around and nonchalantly smash it up? Nor do they do intermural sports. Or spend a semester living overseas.

Mentioned how all the hate he got from people because of his edit really hurt him. Said he would cry in the shower and how his happiness waned after every episode. Talked about how he doesn't talk to Michele as much.
Also talked about what's going in the world right now including George Floyd.
Mentioned his relationship with Sarah and was interested working with her. He thought Sarah was playing the game too hard too soon at one point and was reluctant playing with her.
Calls Sarah the strongest person on Dakal.
When he came to Sele 2.0 he saw how horrible their shelter was and started rebuilding it as soon as they came to camp. One of the producers told him that he can't move the shelter and was confused why they would tell him that because they can't effect the game like that. He then mentioned they said that because it is probably the easiest place to shoot for the producers and then the producers came to him the next day and told him he can rebuild the shelter.
