More med. muscle...: It could be that a muscle relaxer alone just doesn't have the punch to take the pain and inflammation away. You might seek a concierge visit with a back specialist.

A 25-year-old member asked:

Does potassium effect restless leg syndrome?

No: If you have leg cramps from low potassium (from diuretics, for example), then a potassium supplement can help. True restless legs syndrome, in which the legs are truly restless rather than cramping, generally is not helped by potassium.

Call your doc: Could be viral, bacterial, other. History of travel, unsavory food intake, bleeding, sick contacts, other meds or medical conditions, antibiotic use in the last 2-3 months. Large volume or small volume diarrhea? Could even be inflammatory stuff like diverticulitis, appendicitis, etc. Risk dehydration, even with oral rehydration fluid like pedialyte (otc) call your doc.

A 43-year-old member asked:

It burns when I pee, all STD test came back clean had a yeast infection but was told too use Monistat 7. Still have the burning pain ! ! ! !?

Many possibilities: If a yeast infection is causing the burning, Monistat cures many but not all yeast infections, another med may be needed. Urine culture can identify bladder infection. Spasm of muscles in the pelvis especially the tiny muscles around the urethra can cause burning. Skin infection other than yeast, including herpes can have subtle signs but cause significant burning.

I am allergic to aspirin and ibuprofen and I have painful swollen joints in my fingers. What anti inflammatory can intake?

Alternatives.: There are some non-steroidal anti-inflammatories other than Ibuprofen that work on slightly different pathways in the body, but if you've had a strong allergic reaction to one, chances are you'll have a reaction to another. There's always prednisone, which is a steroid, and if used appropriately could give you some relief. You should have a talk with your doc about the full risks and benefits.

A 39-year-old female asked:

How can I find out if my back problems are causing my detrusor instability? I have had three lumbar fusions. I started urinating 14 times a day after my last back surgery which was an alif. I am taking oxybutynin for frequency now but how can I be sure it

Urologist: It sounds like you are having urinary frequency, but not necessarily incontinence. The first thing should be a full evaluation by a urologist and I am sure that he will perform urodynamic tests. Additionally an evaluation by a neurologist may also be necessary accompanied by an EMG & ncs.
