BPPV: Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo is caused by abnormal fluid flow in the inner ear. There is a procedure called the Epley Manuver. Many physical therapists can do it and they can even teach you to do it at home if it ever comes back. BE CAREFUL and make sure someone provides you neck support when you do it, or see a physical therapist capable of performing Epley Manurer

If my 9-month old can sit but not crawl or walk, does she have cerebral palsy?

No: Not necessarily. It is important to discuss these developmental milestones with your pediatrician. Many children reach their developmental stages at different paces than the "average" baby and are perfectly normal. Also, some children have delayed motor skills due to other conditions (such as slightly weak muscles) that may get better with either time or special exercises (physical therapy).

How is a diagnosis of MS supported by an MRI of the brain and the spine?

Shows demyelination: Recent revision of the diagnostic criteria for MS have increased the importance of MRI findings. The diagnosis of MS is made sooner in the course of the disease based upon the appropriate history physical findings and MRI findings. The MRI abnormalities suggest demyelination in the brain/spinal cord. If all other causes of demyelination are excluded, ms
is the likely cause and treatment can begin.

I took 5 aleves (naproxen) and I am having severe nausea. Is this normal?

TOO MANY: 5 Aleve (naproxen) at the same time? That is too much. The package says take 1 pill up to 2 times a day. Never take more than the label says unless your doctor says it is ok. 5 alave can make you feel nausea. This is why they print how many to take safely on the labels.
