Can you tell me if it is all in my head and i might be addicted. Is there a chance that i could be addicted to this new medicine?

Humor me a bit: and tell me how you expect anybody to answer that question when you don't say what the new medication you are taking is?? Have to say I have no clue without that key bit of information, or why you think you might be addicted to it. Try again with a little more info - what drug are you taking and why do you think you might be addicted to it. ...Read more

If my eye pressure has come out to be 24, is it for sure that i have glaucoma. if yes, then how can it be treated.?

If my eye pressure has come out to be 24, is it for sure that i have glaucoma. if yes, then how can it be treated.?

Not definitive: Glaucoma is a condition in which the eye pressure exceeds the ability of the circulation in the back of the eye to withstand it. A pressure of 24 is normal for some. If you have no field loss, thick corneas and healthy looking discs, then you probably have nothing to worry about. Get a second opinion with an ophthalmologist to see what your status is. ...Read more

If u have cured the STD u had and it was there for about 3months can be a way it can cause u not to have children, like could u tell there's a block?

If u have cured the STD u had and it was there for about 3months  can be a way it can cause u not to have children, like could u tell there's a block?

No guarantee: An x-ray procedure showing tubes are open is no guarantee they will work if they are. Many who have STD's treated will not have tube damage, but any damage could lead to poor function without full blockage. You may want to wait until you have trouble conceiving to do all the testing. There are ways to bypass tubes through IVF, to have kids. ...Read more

If I have chilblains, will i be more prone to getting it again in the future or is it a come and go disorder?

If I have chilblains, will i be more prone to getting it again in the future or is it a come and go disorder?

You are more prone: Chilblains are a tissue injury that occurs when a predisposed individual is exposed to cold and humidity. The cold exposure damages capillary beds in the skin, which in turn can cause redness, itching, blisters, and inflammation. A history of chilblains is suggestive of a connective tissue disease, thus, you are more succeptible to having it again. ...Read more

Is it possible that my cold symptoms become more severe as i get older?  If so, why?  It feels that way to me; I have no allergies (already tested).

Ancient: At 34 it is all downhill. Your immune function may begin to fade when you pass the age of 60, but that does not necessarily mean that would make your cold symptoms worse. It is always difficult to remember exactly what the last cold felt like unless you have been keeping detailed records. Relax. ...Read more

My ophthalmologist told me that a corneal transplant would not get me to 20/20 vision and it would take a year to see out if it. Y have i heard diff?

My ophthalmologist told  me that a corneal transplant would not get me to 20/20 vision and it would take a year to see out if it. Y have i heard  diff?

Depends: On what your problem is and why you need the transplant. Many problems are now treated with partial transplants which have very rapid visual recovery. Other problems require traditional complete transplants and it is true that it can take many months for vision to get as good as it's going to get. A year is on the long side. Send some more details and i'll give you a more precise answer. ...Read more
