Complementary And Alternative Medicine (Definition)

By definition, "alternative" is different than modern western medicine. Generally any drug, herb, treatment, or procedure that stands up to rigorous scientific scrutiny is included in modern medicine. The problem is that many alternative practices, herbs etc do not stand up to scientific scrutiny and cannot be shown to work. They therefore remain "alternative". Be careful ...Read more

What is a "positive cam impression of the femoral head and neck junction" and can it be asymptomatic?

Hip Impingement: What you describe is known as "cam-type femoral acetabular impingement" or fai for short. Fai can be aysmptomatic, however, this condition can lead to premature arthritis that could ultimately require hip replacement surgery. If you have been diagnosed with fai, I would recommend a consultation with an orthopaedic surgeon specializing in hip arthroscopy to discuss your specific situation. ...Read more

My house is always roasting & last night my daughter who is 3 cam in crying saying she ad a sore head. She also as a runny nose & a cough. Also asthma?

Viral?: I don't understand why you cannot make the house "less roasted". As for your daughter, she likely has a cold which often triggers an asthma attack. If she has worsening in her cough or breathing, be sure to take her to the doctor. If your house is "roasted" with a wood-burning device, you may need to find another option because burning wood may trigger asthma for some people. ...Read more

Cam u get genital arousal even if ur mind is not arouse? Coz I'm experiencing it often now. Is it weird?

Cam u get genital arousal even if ur mind is not arouse? Coz I'm experiencing it often now. Is it weird?

Yes.: External genitals may become stimulated accidentally, without any thoughts of sex. Also, some thoughts are subtle, and may not be easily noticed, but they can cause arousal of the genitals, as well as other reactions which we may not expect. For example, "subliminal suggestion" in advertisements can make us choose a product, without our knowing we are thinking about it. ...Read more

67 yr-old with years of monthly blackouts, with a history of PVC's, adrenal insufficiency and hypothyroidism, looking for a definitive diagnosis.....?

Multifactorial: There a several potential causes for the syncope in this lady. Of concern is that the episode on August 4th occurred without warning. This could be arrhythmic in origin. Although a Holter has been done the patient may need an Event Monitor and if this is negative an implantable monitor may be needed.

We need to make sure she has normal LV function by Echo etc as she does have a history of PVC's.

Vasodepressor syndrome needs to be also considered as she does have some features compatible with this. TTT would be reasonable.

Finally hypotension secondary to the endocrine problem needs to be considered. Perhaps she might need a vasoactive medication as she does have hypotension. ...Read more

Recently had a mammo and sonocine. Sono came back normal but mammo cam back that I needed diagnostic mammo. Isn't the sono more reliable?

Get the mammo: If there was a mammographic abnormality for which they recommended diagnostic mammogram, please follow through. Ultrasound cannot always show what is on a mammogram especially if there are micro calcifications which are sometimes due to breast malignancy. Ultrasound is more helpful for palpable abnormalities and mammography densities, but does not substitute mammogram. ...Read more
