I'm eric for ghana. 24 of age. Please I'm suffering form hapetitis b. Please is there any cure?

No cure but control: Most people with hepatitis b actually clear it with their own immune systems, but if there is evidence of chronic inflammation in the liver, there are medical treatments that can bring this under control. Talk to a physician who specializes in hepatology (usually a gastroenterologist). ...Read more

Hi Eric. Maybe you can advice me or point to some other site for help. I live in new zealand n have had treatment for pulsatile tinnitus in my left ear. My diagnosis was venous sinus stenosis. After stenting noise has almost gone from ear but I get really

Healthnavigator: Hi there. Venous sinus stenosis is pretty uncommon. Http://www. Healthnavigator. Org.

Have nsvt. Went to ER with severe crushing central chest pain that kept coming and going for about 10 minutes. Dr. Said EKG was normal and sent me home, what happened?

Not sure: If you are having non sustained venticular tachycardia and crushing cp, I am surprised, they sent you home with checking ekg only? . I am not sure I have all the info. Typically CP and nsvt together we do admit pt, r/o for heart attack and then do ischemia evaluation with stress imaging or cardiac cath, if symptoms are convincing. ...Read more

Was sitting down with headphones then my ear started to hear a heartbeat sound and it went to super fast and then it stopped and kept on when I yawned?

Was sitting down with headphones then my ear started to hear a heartbeat sound and it went to super fast and then it stopped and kept on when I yawned?

Ear: Great question. Couple of things could cause that. Sometimes the headphones alter how your eustachian tube equalizes air pressure and you are hearing the tube opening and closing; sometimes with the headphones on, you are hearing your heartbeat and there is a little tendon attached to one of your ear bones that contracts in response to loud sounds. See an ENT to check it out ...Read more

Should I wear glasses everyday? Do my eye sight get worse if I don't wear them everyday? My friends and teacher kept telling me that if I don't wear my glasses everyday, my eyes would get worse, is that true? Doesn't it get worse when u wear ur glasses als

Depends on age: Wearing the correct spectacle correction will never make your vision weaker-- it will only allow you to see better. Not wearing your glasses under the age of ten may cause the eye to not develop to their full visual potential. ...Read more

Niece found on floor unconscious&foaming at mouth. She was glassy-eyed&kept passing out afterwards.911 called. Prognosis? Scared. My uncle died of seizure

Do not be scared: I can understand your fear in seeing your niece in this state, especially given the family history of death in your uncle.
It is important to know the cause of the seizures, hence get your niece diagnosed and treated.
Seizures are usually scary to watch, but are eminently treatable. With the right care and treatment, your niece will very likely do well and have the seizures controlled. ...Read more

My daughter got bit by a mosquito and her eye swelled up. I gave her some Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and I kept a warm towel on it. This morning, her eye was still swollen. What should I do?

My daughter got bit by a mosquito and her eye swelled up. I gave her some Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and I kept a warm towel on it. This morning, her eye was still swollen. What should I do?

Eyelid swelling: Worsening of swelling in the morning is expected because of laying flat all night while sleeping. Try cold /ice compresses, stay upright, and continue benadryl (diphenhydramine). See your pediatrician or ophthalmologist if not better. ...Read more

Sinus, caught a cold, medicine I was kept in a very cold temperature 2 weeks ago. After that I got a heavy pain on my whole back. I coughed and sneezed and had a headache and some germs in my ears in a way that one of my ears blocked and I could not hear

Sinus, caught a cold, medicine I was kept in a very cold temperature 2 weeks ago. After that I got a heavy pain on my whole back. I coughed and sneezed and had a headache and some germs in my ears in a way that one of my ears blocked and I could not hear

This: This may be a viral upper respiratory tract infection. Typically, those will improve within 10-14 days. If it has not improved, you may now have a bacterial infection/sinusitis. Those will also clear on their own but may get better faster with an antibiotic. Other medicines that may help clear the congestion are afrin/oxymetazoline nasal spray (never longer than 3 days in row no matter how you are feeling), over-the-counter decongestant pills (sudafed), and never forget the nasal saline irrigation (neti-pot, or neilmed sinus irrigation are common). The sinus irrigation can clear out the thick mucous and make you feel better quickly. If things get worse rather than better, you may need to go to the doctor. ...Read more

I want to know how much risk for cancer I am at since last year I had 7 CT abdominal pelvic scans, kept going to er, finally had gallbladder out?

Too small to measure: "Scare" websites will tell you that CT scan radiation greatly increases cancer risk. In fact, each CT nowadays involves the extra radiation equivalent to living in Denver rather than Topeka for a few months -- an increased cancer risk that's not even measurable between cities. Life's hard enough without people frightening you. Glad you got the cause of your pain sorted out. Best wishes. ...Read more

Severely dehydrated and haven't kept food down in 10 days. Also can't stomach antibiotics for strep infection. What can I expect when I go to the er?

Severely dehydrated and haven't kept food down in 10 days. Also can't stomach antibiotics for strep infection. What can I expect when I go to the er?

Why don't: You give your doctor a call for an appointment and anti-emetic instead of the er. However, failing that you can expect to wait in the waiting room, then be triaged, then taken to an exam room where you will be seen depending on the census in the order of importance. Beyond that I can't answer for what the er physician will do. ...Read more
