A 36-year-old female asked:

mri due to migraines. mri report said, high riding left jugular bulb and cerebellum tonsils low lying but no chiari. what symptoms would i experience with each of these?

None: Those are “normal” anatomical variants and have nothing whatever to do with migraines. The physician who ordered the MRI has the ethical obligation to review the report with you and interpret it in terms you can understand, or, if they can’t, to find someone who can. You have a right to expect that. Remember that for the future.

Dr Shvartsman is correct. Also note that OTC products are no where near as effective as Rx by your Dentist...you get what you pay for.

Just to be devils advocate , no tests have been done in pregnant women for using makeup or hairspray but we let them do that as well. There is no systemic absorption of the hydrogen peroxide in pregnant women than in other women even without a study.

Should I do an MRI or CT scan for my child's headache?

It depends.: If your pediatrician thinks there could be a serious explanation for the headaches, they will make that decision. An MRI is better at finding abnormalities of the brain itself, such as a tumor. A CT is better for discovering bleeding or abnormalities of bony structures.

Possibly: The eyes are very sensitive, and almost anything can be an irritant. That being said, their own saliva would be unlikey to cause any serious problems.
