Also be sure to tell your doctor if you've ever suffered a major head or brain injury, breathing problems (including from spinal curvature), lung diseases, problems with any major organs (particularly the gallbladder, liver, or kidneys), or any glandular problems (particularly the adrenals, thyroid, or prostate), or difficulty urinating.
