Can I have your bikes?

After a suitable mourning period, of course.

You're too leggy. I'll take 'em.

But I suspect that won't relieve you of paying the mortgage on the house you'll no longer be living in, amirite?

No mortgage, but I also won't be owning any part of it in that scenario, if you know what I mean.

Hey MoAlpha quick neuro consult?? I have a 77 year old male, runner, who tells me the past few months he has to stop running or he will fall forward. He is generally healthy and last time I saw him (a few months ago) he had a normal gait and nothing obvious neurologically. He says it feels like he cannot stop his forward momentum when running. I initially was thinking some type of Parkinsonism or bradykinesia but Google tells me there is an entity called "Runner's Dystonia" which in some ways fits his description better.

Thoughts?

Those were, indeed, the very lines along which I was thinking.

She'd give me one cast iron pan upside the head as I left.

Come to think of it, I call dibs on Mo's clothes and underwear as I'd need that too.

What, there are no barrels with suspenders where you live?

I could use a new blender.

Thoughts?

The cases of runners’ dystonia I’ve seen were clear task-related dystonia syndromes, where one can find a muscle group doing something identifiably wrong during the activity. In this case, one might look at the gastroc/soleus on one side. That would be a relatively good thing to have given the several truly dismal possibilities and might be amenable to botulinum injections. Unfortunately, this guy needs a look from a good movement disorders person and you’ve told me how hard they are to find. :(

I'm not a neurologist but my advice is to tell him running is stupid and write him a script for an e-bike. Ok, dumb joke. I hope it works out well and swiftly.

Iíve heard thatís a good solution for people with RA. Easier on the knees and ankles.

I was sweating bullets all week about this guy. He is already on heart medication and he began to act very lethargic last week after a long walk. Then he developed a cough. I was worried his heart condition was worsening. Got him in to the vet today and it turns out he has a cold. They examined him and his heart looks the same as last year so all is good. Whew.

Thanks. He is coming in tomorrow, so I hope to have a better sense of the problem after a good history and exam.

No permanent population. No GDP. But it's a continent and is not on your "map".

Provided there are no inheritance taxes it's really, really cheap. It's free after all. maintaining it on the other hand is the expensive part.
