Doctor Q&A for Dr. Soroosh Armandi

Depends: I'm sorry to hear that you had a cyst rupture. I've heard that's extremely painful. Having a delayed period could be due to stress or other factors but this doesn't mean you can't ovulate. Please take into consideration that you have 2 ovaries. I would see an obgyn for follow up. Best of luck!!

Must be seen: This must be looked at by a physician. It may need imaging. It sounds like it's the maxillary sinus area or a tear duct blockage. An ear nose and throat doc would be able to diagnose this for you. Best of luck!

Too late, sorry!: You're 26. Even taking growth hormone which I don't recommend, will not make you taller! The bone length has been predetermined by genetics and maybe environmental factors.

Why gain weight?: Ensure plus is for elderly that don't eat enough. What's making you think that you need to gain weight? Your bmi is normal. Why don't you increase good nutritional caloric intake by eating real food?

Cdiff: Cdiff doesn't always present with diarrhea oddly enough. Especially if a patient is on opiates or anti motility agent. I would see a doctor if I were you.

Antibodies: ITP can be tested by having an antibody positivity. Whereas low plts due to other causes is usually caused by the antibiotic. Cessation of antibiotics will increase platelets. I'm presuming you were placed on antibiotics for infection.

Excellent point: The same thing happens when we give Metamucil or psyllium husk to patients! it can act as a tonic, its not a laxative, so thats why im naming it a tonic or it can act as a bulking agent at higher doses. You need to find the balance that works best for your body. Add fruits, such as apples and pears with skin to your diet. That will help with regularity. Experiment and see what regimen works!

Fibromyalgia: Heres the thing about fibro: its not a disease, its a subset of symptoms defined as a disorder. Your pain doc doesn't believe in fibro, ok, but you're still symptomatic. I would have your rheumy - you must be aussie - :) find the cause of your fibromyalgia. Is there an autoimmune disease not being diagnosed? Celexa (citalopram) is just an anti depressant masking or increasing threshold of your symptoms.

Maybe: Depends on how you're stretching your calves. If you're stretching calves and lower back at the same time then lower back may have been neglected. If you're standing on a plank, and doing calf raises, lower back should not be affected. The other question is are they innerveted by the same nerves? Answer is no.
