Herbal Treatment For Worsening With Sudden Motion
Diagnosed with meniere's disease for 3 years. I periodically have the standard symptoms. Is there any treatment to relieve aural fulness?
Standard Therapy: Standard therapy for meniere''s is your best bet. Low or nonfluctuating sodium diet, daily diuretic, allergy evaluation and treatment if present. There is no one medication that will treat the aural fullness of meniere's disease, it is best controlled by controlling the disease in general. If you've had an increase in attacks, consider transtympanic steroid treatment. ...Read more
24 yo male with classic pericarditis. Recurred despite treatment with colchicine, steroids, etc. What are the options for additional therapy.....?
Coxsackie B: Recurrent pericarditis is unlikely to be due to a bacteria. It is possible that Borrelia Burgdorferi infection or Moyamotoi can cause it although it is not widely accepted as a cause The most likely explanation is Coxsackie B infection. So I would check serologies and if positive you have only symptomatic treatment. Indomethacin can work well. Steroids also as might be the case here but should generally be avoided in viral infections. I would not let the neutrophilia put you off whether it is due to the steroids or not. ...Read moreSee 7 more doctor answers
Exercise: Muscle cells are replaced by fat as we age & nerve pathways that aren't being stimulated die out. Make sure that the weakness is not being caused by other conditions, however. It's too easy to say, "you're just getting old." conditions that affect muscles, nerves, and energy can be obstacles. See "strong women stay young" (book) and "23 and1/2 hours" (http://www.Youtube.Com/watch?V=auains6higo). ...Read more

Neuro exam?: Interesting case, but I'd like to know about her neuro exam. By the history, her symptoms haven't progressed in a length-dependent manner (especially given the facial sensory involvement) and this points me toward a sensory neuronopathy aka sensory ganglionopathy. These patients would be expected to have proprioceptive impairment-- if she is still a dance instructor, I doubt her proprioception is impaired. If her neuro exam and nerve conduction study are truly normal, I suspect any additional testing will be normal as well. ...Read moreSee 10 more doctor answers
Polymyalgia rheumatica. What are recommended treatments long term after acute treatment with corticsteroids? Severe pain and weakness was sudden in upper body, but there is a history of migraines, excema, esp. Sun sensitity, and osteo arhritis with spinal
One : One of the ways to get correct information from a computer is to have the correct ( input) information in the computer. In medicine is the same , you need precise data to make the adecuate diagnosis . I don t mean to under estimate you impression of how you hands look or how they feel and i don t mean to under estimate your diagnosis of aquiles tendinitis or others, but in order to make the right diagnosis in rheumatology you need to have an appropiate history and physical exam, these two features give you a very very good hint of the diagnosis , that could then be confiorm by blood test or x rays etc.... Rheumatoid arthrtis is not always rheumatoid factor positive and there are 140 varieties of rheumatic diseases . I believe you need a rheumatologist to evaluate you and try to define what your ailments are to get the propper diagnosis and the propper therapy. ...Read more
