Do people babble and say private secrets under anesthesia?

Do people babble and say private secrets under anesthesia?

Sometimes.: Under monitored anesthesia care or conscious sedation, some patients will become fairly chatty. Some do indeed start talking about topics not fit for public discussion. I have some entertaining recollections. It matters very little though as your anesthesiologist will always honor the confidentiality of the doctor-patient relationship. Your secrets are safe. ...Read more

Do people normally babble a lot under anesthetics?

Only briefly: Disinhibited speech often happens under very light sedation just prior to, or at the onset of anesthesia. Occasionally it can also happen during emergence from anesthesia.

Do they belong in an institute? They: are very depressed, sit alone all day, don't talk to anyone, have ptsd, rash out and throw things for no reason.

Do they belong in an institute? They: are very depressed, sit alone all day, don't talk to anyone, have ptsd, rash out and throw things for no reason.

Need help: I don't know about being "in an institute, " but the person you're describing is clearly in pain and needs help. This could be done as an outpatient -- with a psychiatrist. Psychiatrists help explore the suffering, and see what can be done to help. Sometimes this might be talk therapy, and sometimes medications could be of use. If there is substance abuse, this needs treatment also. ...Read more

Why do people with amnesia remember a language when they don't remember their names (or other people)?

First things last: In general the things that were learned first will be forgotten last. Language is one of the things we learn first when we are growing up. This will be the last to go. However there will be some exceptions to this general rule. ...Read more

Do oral surgeons normally put people under general anaesthesia when they do extractions?

Do oral surgeons normally put people under general anaesthesia when they do extractions?

Most Dentists or: Oral surgeons will do extractions under straight local anesthetic (la). Rarely is any other kind of sedation needed. I can tell you that after having three root canals the la was quite sufficient. I later used some Motrin when the block wore off. Hope that this helps. ...Read more

For safety reasons, need to disclose seizure disorder to professors @ school so they'd know how 2 help. Bu how 2 do that w/o making them freak out?

For safety reasons, need to disclose seizure disorder to professors @ school so they'd know how 2 help. Bu how 2 do that w/o making them freak out?

Straight talk: I would make an appointment and talk to your professors at a time when you can sit and be comfortable. I would be prepared with information about what type of seizures you have had and how often they occur. Get recommendations from your doctor about what should be done if you have a seizure. Let them know how long a seizure usually lasts and at what point should they seek medical help. ...Read more

My parents don't know that I'm male physically but by heart and soul, I'm a female. How do I come out to my parents without hirting their sentiments?

My parents don't know that I'm male physically but by heart and soul, I'm a female. How do I come out to my parents without hirting their sentiments?

Trans-sexual support: Your kind concern for them may help you find a way but some will depend on them too. Go slowly if necessary. Best to 1st find support for you - friend, teacher, therapist, Tx group or at least online forum. Then, sharing w/ parent(s) that you are dealing w/ a hard (non-specific maybe) issue and hope they will be able to stand by you through it. Small talks may be easier than a big one - patience! ...Read more

Do old patients like those old doctors more who talks to them more, when they get a feeling that he is respecting their age, any psychology behind this ?

Do old patients like those old doctors more who talks to them more, when they get a feeling that he is respecting their age, any psychology behind this ?

See below: Speaking from my experience: i work primarily with geriatric clientele and i'm much younger than my average client. It's not about the age, it's about ability to relate, empathize, respect, and being able to help on the person's level. While having similarities definitely helps with establishing rapport, ultimately it's my ability to relate, empathize, and be a clinician a that helps the client. ...Read more

How come i experience several physcal sensation during my anxiety , but all the doctors n tests show me i'm fine ?? How to cope with that sensation?

Anxiety Physical Sxs: I am wondering if you have had your MTHFR genes checked to see if you have a SNP. That affects the production of neurotransmitters, and neurotransmitters are the brain chemicals. You might benefit from uncooked dark leafy greens for the methyl-folate, and methylcobalamin. Get checked. ...Read more

There's been little conversations in my head by people who don't exactly exist. I keep seeing notes in my handwriting that I don't remember writing.

Hi: At age 16, there can be a lot of things in life that are stressful and confusing. It sounds like the chemicals which keep your brain in balance are having a bit of a problem. Talk to your parents or your clergyman about this and obtain guidance of what to do from here. The last thing you should do is ignore this.

Y do some doctors choose not 2 accept uninsured patients? I can afford 2 pay out of pocket but i don't want health insurance right now. #young&healthy

Y do some doctors choose not 2 accept uninsured patients? I can afford 2 pay out of pocket but i don't want health insurance right now. #young&healthy

Most don't: Have a choice because of their contracts with insurance companies. The ic's insist that you charge the same inflated charge to the patients that we bill to the ic's, despite the ic's consistently paying around 60% of what was billed. It's a stupid control game that we all need to fight for change, and regulation of the ic's. That is one of the reason I am concierge. Ic's are evil. My opinion. ...Read more

If Psychiatric NP's get little psychotherapy training in their programs, how do they practice as psychotherapists when LPC's need years of supervision?

If Psychiatric NP's get little psychotherapy training in their programs, how do they practice as psychotherapists when LPC's need years of supervision?

Maybe not at all: Pardon my bias here. Many Mental Health practitioners these days mostly prescribe based on the patient's or caregiver complaints. They don't do psychotherapy. Your query includes a likely reason - the cost of training. If it is a focus on psychotherapy you seek - consider a Ph.D., PsyD, LCSW or similarly trained pro. The medical degrees at all levels tend more toward Rx's as primary tool. Best! ...Read more

When in life do doctors have to keep information confidential?

Who do most people with Asperger's (myself included) seem very opinionated about their beliefs? like they should have the last word in an argument?

Who do most people with Asperger's (myself included) seem very opinionated about their beliefs? like they should have the last word in an argument?

Great question: My feeling is that Asperger folks are much less TELEOLOGICALLY oriented in their thinking on life & its problems. That means everything that happens (good or bad) has an identifiable & definite cause as opposed to thinking more in the abstract (not necessarily religious but that's part of it as well). So, thinking becomes rigid/opinionated, & those with other answers to the question are just wrong ...Read more

My mom said psychiatrists are all crazy, charge u to give common sense advice & give meds for things that people need to just deal with. Is she right?

Maybe.: Is your mom a Scientologist? Or, has she had a bad experience? Care varies by the caregiver. Broad statements are seldom true and often betray bias. Love your mother but trust your own "common sense". ...Read more
