Possibly: A child with finromyalgia would be very rare. I would suggest a comprehensive medical and psychological evaluation in a pediatric pain program to make sure nothing is missed. Some of my adult patients feel a bit better with vitamin d3, Alpha lipoic acid, acetylcarnitine, and fish oil. I can't comment on using these in children. ...Read more

Interesting question: To my awareness there is no specific thalassemia diet. Regarding weight gain and vitamin d and calcium, i recommend a well rounded diet of meats, fruits, vegetables and grains, and dairy products. Most physicians are checking vitamin d levels and prescribing vitamin d and calcium according to test results. Check with your doctor. ...Read more

Someone i know has a degenerative disc between L5 and s1 and arthritis in facet joints there. Any help besides fusion and meds? Please help. Thank you

Facet pain and DDD: Degenerative changes occur in the spine like wrinkles to skin. Most do not need surgery. Nsaid's, tylenol, (acetaminophen) ice/heat, salonpas hot patches, pilates/yoga/piyo are non-medical options. Mckenzie pt is a great program, but requires a doc's rx. Bracing can help pain in some patients, but is expensive. Tens is a glorified heating pad, but if it helps there is no harm. Look for a diam investigation site. ...Read more
