Unpredictable: It's the nature of psvt to come and go. It's initialed by a random extra beat (pac) that occurs at a vulnerable time in a person with the right anatomic substrate to sustain a persistent arrhythmia.

I had my menses on 31st january 2014 and it lasted for 3 days which is weird. And just yesterday the 11th of february, it resurface again. How?
Ovulation bleeding?: It's possible that you ovulated late, and the weird period you had in january was actually peri-ovulation bleeding. This is a common phenomenon. This bleeding you are having now may be your actual period (which makes sense if you ovulated at the end of january). It's always a good idea to check a pregnancy test if your periods are not normal. Call your gyn if this problem keeps happening. ...Read more

Can the Fraxel 1550 resurface superficial burn scars from laser tattoo removal? I'm desperate to diminish its appearance.
Possibly: I would say that depending on how irregular or prominent the scar is, it may help blend and smooth the scar. It is unlikely to hurt anything other than your wallet. :) Depending on the size of the affected area you maybe be able to excise the bad areas, but that will leave a scar as well, just likely flat and thin. ...Read more
My dentist puts on new gloves which are clean off a clean countertop at the corner not out of a glove dispenser on the wall. Is this ok?
I brought my 2 and 4 year old to a granite slab warehouse to pick our countertop. They were in for about 10 mins. Now I'm worried about radiation?!
Wouldn't worry about: We are all subject to gamma radiation continuously from the sun. It passes through walls and the earth. It is part of life. We are also exposed continuously to radio wave we never see and chance emission from our surroundings. It doesn't alter the lifespan of us earthlings much. I consider the risk negligible. ...Read more

And if you've other symptoms of concussion that may warrant further exam. So if the pain is not helped with regular otc pain relievers, you have vomiting, dizziness, fever, confusion, weakness, vision change, see MD now ...Read more
Hit head hard under granite countertop. Urgent care did x-rays, came back normal. No symptoms except head hurts. Is a CT scan still needed?
Probably not: It is not surprising to have a headache after hitting your head on granite. Your scalp is very likely bruised and may be quite sore, tender and/or swollen for a while. If you did not lose consciousness and you have no other symptoms and if your physical exam was normal, there is probably no need to do a ct scan. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Many, CO2 best: Options for resurfacing are lasers, chemical acid peels, dermabrasion. Dermabrasion has higher risk of scarring and permanent loss of pigment. Chemical peels are an inexpensive option for resurfacing but less effective and predictable than lasers. Co2 laser is the gold standard for resurfacing. It gives the best results but requires great skill and experience to perform safely. ...Read more
