I frequently get leg pain and when I do I always take 2-3 Avil liquid jel tablets at a time. Is that ok?
Abrasions and gels: Friction burns are very shallow abrasion if the uppermost layers of the skin. Often, they are pretty painful. They heal, however, pretty rapidly. Do not let them get too dry, since that will slow the healing process. A healing gel is generally a means of adding moisture to a wound. So, yes, it would help ...Read more
Extremely safe but..: I don't believe anything is "100% safe." one can die from drinking too much water and even excessive oxygen can be hazardous. Raw aloe vera gel is extremely safe but it is possible to be allergic to aloe, so I would not say it is 100% safe- but it is as safe or safer than any other drug or herb that treats diabetes. It can be very helpful- see http://www. Naturalnews. Com/021858_aloe_vera_gel. Html. ...Read more

Hi! I'm Avi, mostly at night saliva comes all over my mouth but my all medical reports were ok. Recently I had a appendix surgery, is it a obsession?
Not abnormal: Drooling is defined as saliva flowing outside of your mouth unintentionally. It is often a result of weak or underdeveloped muscles around your mouth. This is not an uncommon finding. Side-sleepers are more prone to drooling during the night simply because gravity is causing the mouth to open and allowing drool to pool on your pillow. Try sleeping on your back ...Read more
I am single 25yr with mid cycle bleeding like jel & pain in lower abdomen. Tested ca 125 result 35.28, rubella IgG with 18.20 reactive. Is it cancer?
Not likely..: First of all, your result for rubella is reactive, which means you are immune from rubella (a viral infection). Ca125 is a tumor marker but is non-specific. This means that it can be high for all kind of reasons including cancer and many benign diseases such as endometriosis and even just inflammation/infection. Cancer is less likely at your age but you should get checked out anyway. ...Read more

I had protected sex with a prostitute on dec 26 2012 I performed cunnalingus on her I had a blood testfor hivvrvl and hbs on jan 17 it was -ve ai safe?
You are just fine:
You did everything right. Oral sex on a female is not in any way high risk for either HIV or hepatitis b. And you wore a condom. Bravo!
in m;y experience prostitues take their health very seriously. They demand condoms. They get tested on a regular basis for sexually transmitted diseases.
Now with your blister on your lip I would worry about herpes. That is the only test left to discuss. ...Read more

Change in periods?:
Has there been a change in your menstrual periods? If you are not having periods now or are bleeding less, that could explain it. A1c depends on mean blood glucose and life span of red cells. Menstruating women have shorter red cell life span.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

Can lab be wrong sometimes? Jan.16 my A1c was 5.3 MPG 90.49. -July A1c 5.9 MPG 110.47. I had been eating a healthy diet so I wanted it rechecked. 8 days later they rechecked A1c 5.2 with MPG 87.16. Can it change that much in 8 days? Was July wrong?
Lab Error/technique: Lab errors happen & are more common than people think, so it is very possible that the middle lab was an error. However, if you have anemia & had a transfusion or take meds to raise you RBC count, this could be real. Also, diff labs use diff techniques to measure the HbA1c & the technique used can be effected by abnormal hemoglobin or at times meds, so if diff labs used could be reason. ...Read more
Cut way back on calories for 1 week. Stuck to salads & protein. Scale hasn't budged. Walk/jog avg 2.5 mi/day. Eat more or wait longer to see results?
Perhaps you should wait 2-3 weeks. As food is concerned, 1. do not snack, 2. Decrease the amount of your lunch and dinner by 50%. How is your sleep?
You should get a medication Phentermine 37.5 mg. Which will lower your appetite. This med. May induce insomnia, therefore as you wake up, may stat with 1/2 tab and the other 1/2 at 02:00 pm, Take vitamins, avoid carbohydrates, have fish and lean meat ...Read more

Agree with Dr. Grim about keeping weight under control. Another thing to focus on is exercise. You do not have diabetes, however, For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Not likely: Late teen female has been told she has tendonitis of hip based on mri. This is concerning because MRI cannot confirm this diagnosis. A corticosteroid/ anesthetic block can confirm. Avn newly onset in this age group rare without devastating injury. Sacroiliac joint disorder more common, and osteopath can discern. ...Read more

Boyfriend swears I jerk my body in sleep. Could jerking explain high spontaneous arousal index. Had CPAP so low AHI. ZERO recorded limb movements.
Nothing to worry: Jerking and limb movements are two different things. Jerking happens during REM sleep (high arousal part of sleep cycle). If you look at EEG, it actually looks like one seizure form, brain is asleep but tying to wake up. Nothing to worry about except you may have an angry sleep partner. ...Read more
