You : You should see an ear nose and throat doctor (otolaryngologist) for a complete evaluation. They can evaluate both your nasal septum and whether you need a sleep study or further sleep evaluation. It is not clear to me if you are still using cocaine, obviously that would also cause sleeplessness, so if you are then seek out a drug-treatment program.

See below: After prolonged use of restoril, (temazepam) you become dependent upon it. Weaning and drug substitution may be in order.

Will weight loss or diet changes help improve urinary incontinence?

YES: Urge incontinence or oab can be aggravated by certain foods. Following a "bladder diet" can improve bladder function. Common irritants are: carbonation, citris or other acidic foods. The bladder sits in the lower abdomen & is absolutely affected by excess pressure from obesity. Obese women who lose even a modest amount of weight (10-15 pounds) can enjoy marked improvement in bladder function.

Breast ca: Yes. Both men and women get breast cancer. The shutting off of the ovaries will decrease the estrogen production but the testosterone shots have their own issues. Regardless, the risk is still there.

Itchy eyes: You may have an allergic response to the alcohol or a preservative in the alcohol. As long as you have no shortness of breath, it is ok to try some artificial tears, or an allergy drop such as zaditor (ketotifen) (over the counter). If symptoms persist, call your local ophthalmologist.

Infection: You have a respiratory/throat infection. Could be viral and could be bacterial best to see a doctor. Other options to help with symptoms include taing elderberry, gargling with salt water or half and half peroxide and mouthwash (do not drink- just gargle) and a warm cloth around neck to hep with lymph glands. Important to rule out strep throat as that will improve with antibiotics.
