Losing weight. On steroid for asthma. Hurt myself lifting boxes. Mild mid-abdomen rt side pain on exam. Dr said steroid will help it too. What's it?

Muscle strain: The usual tx for a muscle strain (oral meds) is a non-steroidal anti inflammatory drug (nsaid). Prednisone is a steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. This would be the logic of it working in your injury. Of course wet warm soaks , etc wouldn't be out of the question either. ...Read more

What does it mean for a hyperaerated lung to press on the abdomen, is it dangerous for person to refuse an inhaler meant for an exercise induce asthma?

What does it mean for a hyperaerated lung to press on the abdomen, is it dangerous for person to refuse an inhaler meant for an exercise induce asthma?

Air can't get out: With asthma, patients get "hyperareated lungs", meaning there is much air trapped in the lungs because the patients cannot easily breathe out the air. It is dangerous when there is way too much air trapped in the lungs. It is not dangerous when the asthma is mild, but sometimes the mild asthma can turn into dangerous asthma over a few hours. We use the same inhalers for different types of asthma. ...Read more

My child often has reduced breath sounds (mid, lower), with pain& bloated abdomen. Clear cxr. Besides asthma, what could cause be? Min. Change albuter

Look at diet: Bloating makes me think that perhaps there are some food intolerances....If this child is older than one...Consider adding probiotics (like culturelle) and removing dairy and gluten form the diet. You may want to discuss this further with your doctor. I also suggest a chinese medicine evaluation as I have great success with this in my patients. ...Read more

Not sure: why is testing being done? Eosin count of wbc diff in range you state not in abnl range for child. Reactive abdominal nodes? Assuming CT scan of abdomen done, but why? Best to follow closely with your child's treating provider and pose your questions to her/him. This forum too limited to try and answer your question well. Sorry unable to help much. ...Read more

My sons ige levels are 167and also has enlarged lymph nodes in his abdominal area he has no allergies or asthma and no one can seem to tell me what's?

My sons ige levels are 167and also has enlarged lymph nodes in his abdominal area he has no allergies or asthma and no one can seem to tell me what's?

Symptoms?: By themselves, these test results are not at all concerning. The total IgE level is slightly elevated, but well within "normal" range as this fluctuates for persons with and without clinically significant allergy. Lymph nodes also fluctuate in size depending on immune system activity and other factors. If he has specific symptoms, that could help us point you in the right direction. ...Read more
