Doctor insights on:
Often this complaint comes from some type of issue with residual erosion or severe dryness.
I would see an eye md or a corneal specialist for an examination if it is a persistent problem. Also I would look to see if you have a fan on a night or are sleeping in an overly dry environment. Often overhead fans can cause severe dryness to the eyes. ...Read more

Can magnesium capsules remove sands in the kidney because it was prescribed to me after my kidney bladder utrasound..
Prevent, not remove: There are a few studies that show magnesium supplementation along with B6 or just magnesium can reduce the formation of kidney stones by 90% or so. However I am not aware of anything that suggests magnesium supplementation will dissolve kidney stones that all are already there. Hopefully they will leave quietly. :) Good health ...Read more
I need a top professional caring dentist. Was going to dr sands or dr dormant but saw badvreviews on yelp. How can I find one?! I Want quality caring
Caution: Yelp is interesting but potentially very misleading. Talk to people you trust and respect about where they go to the dentist. Most times only bad things get posted to sites like this giving a potentially skewed vision of what really is happening. Others pad them with fake good reports.

Short answer is yes.: The long answer is that most surgeons want to make their patients happy with the results of any surgical intervention.

Is it bad when the veins in your legs pop living bad brucing and pain im 29 years old I have suffered of high blood presure for 4 years now, lateley I have been getting this uncontrolable headaches can this be related?
Very high blood pressure can definitely cause headaches. That's not the only cause, of course, but if your headaches are in fact caused by your high blood pressure, then it means you may be at risk of complications like bleeding.
It's unusual for a 29 year-old to have high blood pressure, so when it happens you have to think of unusual causes.

It is relatively easy to fix with a balloon, so it is worth checking for. This can be done with ultrasound or ct angiography.
Whether or not your headaches are caused by your hypertension, and whether or not you have fibromuscular dysplasia, it's important to get it under control. Untreated high blood pressure can cause a host of long-term complications. ...Read more
