If inside heel of shoe is being worn out you have flat feet.
I don’t but may still be worth getting a generic orthotic.

This is the test. But in order to try for a 10 I was aggressive and in my first attempt fell back on my head while getting up. The head hurt. Luckily I fell on the carpet else I could have injured myself badly. Later, by using a hand, I could get up easily but the test is fundamentally bad.
DOING THE TEST IS VERY DANGEROUS AND THE STUDY HAS NOT BEEN REPLICATED AND DID NOT CONTROL FOR A RANGE OF OTHER KEY VARIABLES. [Summary from here – “I also believe that performing the test may do more harm than good.“]
My conclusion: The harms of doing this test FAR EXCEED any predictive benefits it might bring.
Just do regular exercise and stretching. SLOWLY. And that’s fine.

I don’t have asthma but am susceptible periodically to specific forms of hay fever. Some years are fine, other years a problem.
In 2016 I was victim of thunderstorm asthma and had to take a day off. I had great difficulty breathing that night and had massive wheezing in my chest. When I went to the doctor in the morning, I was given a hot vapour at the doctor’s office plus Ventolin. I was also advised how to minimise the chances of getting it. After a day off from work I was fit enough to return to work.
Unfortunately, I did not make notes at that time and have forgotten it. From what I recall, I was to take my anti-histamines regularly during the hayfever season. Plus I was to keep Ventolin with me to use as soon as the symptoms started.

Today – 16 October 2018 – I’m feeling a bit of congestion in my lungs from the weather, and have taken Ventolin again + Telfast.
