My father has psp. Is there any treatment or medications you can advise? Thank you Elias

No known medication: No known medications treat PSP, however, I involve my patients in a number of things right from the start which I believe have a positive clinical impact on them as the disease progresses. Things such as vestibulotherapy, speech therapy, and cognitive gaming are just a few examples of activities I have seen help patients with PSP. Contact me at www. Healthtap. Com/drsaghafi for more specific ideas. ...Read more

This is a potent medicine with potential for serious side effects including dangerous arrhythmias. I would have to suspect your symptoms are related. ...Read more

Is earwax impaction removal by an ENT supposed to hurt? I had it done today and it hurt a lot. (no pain prior, mild after). Said to use debrox to soften & return in a week. Should I see someone else?

Expected: It doesn't sound out of the ordinary, especially if you have hard wax stuck in the canal. Please follow the instructions and go back for completion. You can also use mineral oil or peroxide to help soften the wax. Use the preparations at night and put cotton in the ears so that your natural body heat will do the work of softening it overnight. ...Read more

Its about 1-2 weeks I have sore throat. Have pain when touching on throat. Even when shaving on throat erea. Mabye thyroid. No other sympt. Can be HIV?

Testing: The most appropriate way to alleviate your fears about HIV is to get tested. Most people don't worry about HIV bc of a sore throat. So if that is on your mind get tested. Sore throat can be caused by multiple things. Acute/subacute thyroiditis can definitely cause neck pain on palpation. But you need to be seen to have that evaluated. ...Read more

Is there a medical condition behind being "evil"?

Interesting question: There are certainly some people with antisocial personality disorder whose exploitative and devious behavior towards others might be called "evil." however, I think there are some whose behavior is not due to a medical condition but is a conscious choice. Serial killers, career criminals, etc. These may act with extreme cruelty and sadism towards others, and are untreatable with any therapy. ...Read more
