I thought neurologists deal with nervous system disorders? Why won't they see me after I've been diagnosed (by EMG/NCS) with L4-L5 & S1-S2 issues?

I thought neurologists deal with nervous system disorders? Why won't they see me after I've been diagnosed (by EMG/NCS) with L4-L5 & S1-S2 issues?

Neurologist referral: Neurologists do treat nervous system disorders. A specialist not seeing you may be due to many factors. Is your medical insurance not accepted by that doctor? Does the problem require a surgical evaluation? Was the problem due to a work-related injury (some doctors will not manage those problems)? Did your primary care doctor order the EMG/NCS? If Yes, see that person for help. ...Read more

Do canadians like their national health system?

Positive view: Most canadians find their system responsive, inexpensive and of good quality. They do rank higher on most categories used to measure effectiveness than does the usa.

Do people who smoke mary jane really lose brain cells?

Do people who smoke mary jane really lose brain cells?

Brain function: The research is equivocal about actual brain cell loss with use of marijuana. (mri scans don't show this.) however, brain function definitely changes for the worse while under the influence -- and possibly longer, especially with chronic use. http://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/research-reports/marijuana-abuse/how-does-marijuana-use-affect-your-brain-body. ...Read more

Within the peripheral nervous system you have 'somatic' and 'visceral' nervous systems. Somatic refers to muscle, skeleton, skin. Visceral refers to internal organs. In a nutshell! ...Read more

I have pots from autonomic nervous system dysfunction. How does Lexapro (escitalopram) re-regulate it so i could breathe better, hr normalized, sweat comes back?

I have pots from autonomic nervous system dysfunction. How does Lexapro (escitalopram) re-regulate it so i could breathe better, hr normalized, sweat comes back?

Lexapro (escitalopram): Lexapro (escitalopram) may help to reduce anxiety and prevent depression in an individual with pots. In fact, it does not effect the heart function or regulate the hypotension which causes the syndrome, but it does improve the overall health. The treatment of pots is based on diet and exercise. As a physiological response to a disbalanced noradrenergic system, pots does not constitute an illness in itself. ...Read more

How does one take care of their autonomic nervous sytem. How about taking care of the parasympathetic sympathetic and central nervous system?

Intriguing question: Control of the autonomic nervous system (sympathetic and parasympathetic) probably best attained by studying biofeedback, autogenic training, and meditation. A web-based program at heartmath.Com is recommended. Otherwise, an ascetic isolated decade-long yogi sojurn in an himalayan cave can be undertaken. The idea is to train the unconscious mind to be obedient. Avoid anger and fear. Seek love. ...Read more

Why can't our immune system defeat STIs?

Why can't our immune system defeat STIs?

It does!: You have a misunderstanding. Our immunity does defeat most STDs. Gonorrhea and chlamydia clear up within a few weeks or months, without treatment. HPV is cleared by the immune system, usually in a year or two. Immunity limits but does not cure syphilis. It doesn't clear herpes. Same for non-STD infections: immunity clears colds and most pneumonia, but often not tuberculosis, for example. ...Read more
