Covid 19 : You should not be working with symptoms. We can consider isolation removal after two weeks. You need to have no symptoms to get out of isolation unless otherwise cleared by a doctor. See a telemedicine doctor

COVID 19: Sadly, many people who have "recovered" from COVID 19 go on to have significant sequela. Exhaustion can be one of those. Please consider getting in touch with your doctor to request recommendation for more time off the job so that you can rest and heal further. You should not be infectious to others at this point.

Yes: If anxiety is occurring that much, it probably is affecting your daily habits and activities. You should see a doctor.

Daily treatments more closely approximate the work of the kidneys. Remember that healthy kidneys work 24/7 - not just three sessions per week! You will have far more flexibility in scheduling, greater freedom in eating, and more time to spend with people you care about. Plus, nobody cares about the quality of your dialysis, infection control, or the care of your access (e.g., fistula) like you do! LGromkoMD

I've had polymyalgia for 1 year..Am on pednisone 5 mg daily. What would happen if I stopped taking the meds?

Depends: If you are on Prednisone you should not just stop it. You need to work with your doctor on managing your dose. It needs to be decreased slowly based on your clinical symptoms and response to dose reduction. You should talk to your doctor before changing your dosage.

Can you be a problem gambler if you don't gamble every day of the week?

Yes: It's not necessarily how often the behavior occurs, it's what happens when it does. Is the behavior having negative consequences to the gambler or their loved ones? This would be an indication there is a problem.

How will leukemia affect my everyday life?

Ongoing treatment: Most acute leukemias are treated with IV chemotherapy. Some chronic leukemias are treated with oral medication (CML) or sometimes observation alone (cll). If you are receiving IV chemo, you may lose your hair, feel tired, and be at risk for infections due to low blood counts. You will need to change your diet and activities to decrease risk of infection. Ask your doctor.
