I have a period every month but i bleed for 9 to 10 days and my period stops after 4 days and then starts up a couple of days later why?

Common, depends: It is common for menses for such periods, but more than 8 days is considered abnormal. It is not shocking to stop and restart, especially if it is a recurrent issue for you. If you are older than 35 it is prudent to obtain a biopsy or sample of your uterine lining to assess for cancer, though this is less likely. Finally, an pelvic ultrasound can show polyps or fibroids causing the bleeding. ...Read more

Here are some ...: Wearing tight underwear just provides the snugness to hold testes together and has been a useful way to help ease testicular pain from various reasons, especially for postoperative care after scrotal surgery. If indeed such wearing has bothered you, you would need to see Doc, preferably a urologist for detailed Hx, physicals, & tests as needed so to sort out what might have been happening to you. ...Read more

Taking gabapentin 300mg three times a day for meralgia paresthetica. Started six days ago. No relief. How long before this stuff kicks in?

Are we there yet?: You're pretty close to when you should be feeling something with that particular dose. I tend to titrate people rather slowly (1 pill escalate weekly) so it depends how your doctor told you to ramp this medication up but if you've been going 3x/day right from the get go then, maybe a few more days to a week at best. If you're no better then, either the dose is too low or medication inadequate. ...Read more

I have a drug test tomorrow for work and i went to the ER 4 days ago and they gave me one tramadol will it show up ?

No: Most likely will not show in your test on day 5, especially only one pill.. Besides, they do not test for tramadol since it is not a narcotic. It is an opioid and is controlled in a few states.If ,in the unlikely situation, that an issue arises, you can always get a copy of your ER report to prove things. Get it from the hospital medical recordanyway and be prepared. Good luck in your job search. ...Read more

Headaches?: Well, i'd start with a doctor that's old-fashioned and sits down, and listens to your every word... Then, asks intelligent, probing questions and only after getting a complete, thorough history, performs a good physical exam and gathers whatever lab studies deemed necessary. Too many doctors are rushed, and don't get the whole story. At the very least, they should hear you out, for starters... ...Read more

Weaning off tramadol: Tramadol s a rather unique analgesic drug that is indicated for moderate to moderately severe pain. Although it binds to mu receptors, tramadol is not technically classified as an opioid analgesic. The best way to stop using tramadol is gradually to taper off by 10% daily. The drug is a lot more complicated than many experts first believed and professional help may be needed. Take care. ...Read more

Will I have withdrawals after taking one 100mg of tramadol/ultram time release tablets for 4 months? I only took one before bed every night.

Perhaps: But your dose was reasonably low and the duration was fairly brief and if you got through days w/ only your nighttime dose, you might do fine. However, be prepared for the need to taper to 50mg/night for a week or two and then stop. Best yet, plan w/ your Dr. I think you'll be okay - but be prepared! ...Read more

How much time does it take to get addicted to tramadol?

Wrong term: No drug "causes" ADDICTION. Addiction requires the active participation of the person. What you really mean is physical dependency, which is NOT the same thing as addiction. Babies don't get "addicted" to things their mothers are taken, despite what sloppy reporters/editors say in newspapers or on TV/radio. If you take 50-100 mg of Tramadol twice a day for several weeks, you get mild dependence. ...Read more
