Hard to understand: It is difficult to interpret your question.

If you are asking about a known ovarian cyst or irregular periods please restate and clarify. ...Read more

47 y.O. Man. Fsh 13.95mlu/ml, LH 1.36mlu/ml, prl 2.59ug/l, e2 42.93pg/ml, p 0.35nmol/l, t 15.22nmol. Values are ok? I workout in gym. Can i improve?

Normal overall: These numbers are all normal, except the fsh is mildly high. If you are not interested in fertility it isn't important. Working out in a gym will not change it, and there is no reason to feel that these need to "improve". Normal is normal. As long as you are feeling well don't let anyone tell you that the numbers (especially testosterone) needs to be higher. ...Read more

Have CRPS in L leg. Taking Nucynta (tapentadol) ER 100mg and Nucynta (tapentadol) 50mg. Doc says only SCS will help at this point. Any other answers?

YES!!: Spinal cord stimulator is a LAST resort & are fraught w/failures & complications.A more conservative approach would be to try applying Vit. D cream to the skin, if you can touch it, or Prologel.Vit B complex (esp. B12) orally.If you get some response, you may be able to eventually tolerate neuroprolotherapy which can calm the nerves & stop the pain.If it fails, SCS is still an option. ...Read more

I'm taking snooze-in from the vitamin shoppe. It has 100mg valeria, 75mg scullcap, 75mg hops, 3mg. Melatonin, 75mg. Is this this safe?

I'm taking snooze-in from the vitamin shoppe. It has 100mg valeria, 75mg scullcap, 75mg hops, 3mg. Melatonin, 75mg. Is this this safe?

Yes: This product is very safe. This will help many people but not everyone. If it does not help consider other natural sleep aids like 5-hydroxtryptophan, glycine, california poppy and magnolia bark. These (and what you are taking) are all much safer than prescription sleeping pills. See http://www.Mindbodygreen.Com/0-5104/herbs-for-insomnia.Html. ...Read more

Sheehan syndrome or hypopituitarism. Does this sound like it... Low t3, (liothyronine) low-norm TSH, low-norm estrogen, low-norm acth, insulin sensitive, hypokalemia?
