Simple remedies can include peppermint tea or ginger drops.

My name Jeff I have had a back surgery three weeks ago and are having problems peeing is this normal ?

Maybe, maybe not: Unfortunately this is a difficult question to answer in general. It all depends on the type of surgery and what the precise location in the back the procedure was performed.

Every surgery has risk and complications, and those are very specific to the type of procedure. ...Read more

I have a 6 month old baby and i want to take her to guatemala that would involve a jet internationally and helicopter locally. The baby will be just 6 months as we leave.  She has flown in a jet and is fine, but will she be ok flying in central america in

Hello, : Hello, normally a healthy baby can use air transport after 2 weeks of age. I did not find any literature that established a difference between when a child can fly by plane versus a helicopter. Most infant car seats are certified for air travel. The federal aviation administration recommends that infants ride in properly secured safety seats. I can't answer the last question which is if it is a safe for an infant to visit guatemala - i don't know the political situation there or if are about any medical alerts for that country. ...Read more

My hands jerk n i don't know if it's from my medication? Please help, i take primidone 250mg n it's not working.

Get diagnosed: Your jerks might represent myoclonus, and unlikely that Primidone is culprit, as it usually suppresses tremors, and focal seizures. But in some cases, older anti-epileptic drugs, especially those metabolized to barbiturates, could worsen myoclonus. Get this phenomenon diagnosed, and revise therapy as needed. Get referred to a neurologist. ...Read more
