Had med help for minor dysphagia - vita/stim therapy where electro 'shock' helps encourage stronger swallow. Will prob ever go away? still gets stuck

Etiology?: I'd have to know the reason you have dysphagia to know your prognosis, and also the type of therapy you are getting to see if it's even a proven therapy. Hard to say what the natural course of this problem is, until you find out what it is ! ...Read more

Psych issue: You need a good psychiatrist working closely with your primary care physician. I'm thinking good cognitive behavioral therapy and/or psychotherapy, in concert with a good primary care doc taking care of your actual problem of asthma and keeping it under control would be best. ...Read more

I'am considering testosterone therapy. I have little body/facial hair. And feel behind on development and want to be taller and stronger. Advice?

I'am considering  testosterone therapy. I have little body/facial hair. And feel behind on development and want to be taller and stronger. Advice?

Go see your doctor: You "feel" behind in development but it's not clear that you've been "diagnosed" as behind in development. Sure, most people want to be taller & stronger. Might as well throw in rich & beautiful, too. Anyway, testosterone therapy is not a do-it-yourself project. Go see your doctor for diagnosis & treatment options.

How does physical therapy help " some thinning of the central tfcc" as described by an mri? Would the wrist not be as strong as it's weakest link.

How does physical therapy help " some thinning of the central tfcc" as described by an mri? Would the wrist not be as strong as it's weakest link.

Stabilize : Based on the limited info available, pt can strengthen the hand, wrist and forearm muscles, thus "unloading" some of the stress on the cartilaginous and ligamentous structures around the wrist. The tfcc is a cartilage structure at the end of the ulna. Those MRI findings may not necessarily explain the cause of your symptoms. ...Read more

Pain after biodentine. It's not constant and also not very strong. The tooth didn't hurt at all before treatment. Should I be worried or is it normal?

Pain after biodentine. It's not constant and also not very strong. The tooth didn't hurt at all before treatment. Should I be worried or is it normal?

May be normal: If you are referring to the restorative material Biodentine that may have been placed in your tooth as a filling material then it may be likely that the original cavity was deep. Sometimes teeth that have large cavities are symptom free and when work is done to restore them they can become sore afterward. I would give it some time to get better. If it gets worse go back to your dentist. ...Read more

Hi I have 4 warts that have resisted treatment against multiple rounds of cryo and strong sycliac acid and dcp and apple cider vinger. The warts need?

Hi I have 4 warts that have resisted treatment against multiple rounds of cryo and strong sycliac acid and dcp and apple cider vinger. The warts need?

Details matter: EXACTLY where are the warts? Have you seen a dermatologist or a different practitioner? Are you sure they are warts? Warts can be difficult to cure. In order to be very aggressive against warts, I inject lidocaine first. With the target numb I can freeze deeper and then use electrodessication followed by curettage and application of ferric subsulfate. ...Read more

Hair Conditioning: Normal hair only needs a deep conditioning once a month. A deep conditioner usually needs to be left on the hair for at least 5 minutes and some up to 20 minutes. Some require a shower cap to be placed over the hair while it is conditioning. Some deep conditioners contain anti-oxidants like cranberry oil which help repair damage caused by pollution. Cranberry oil contains vitamin e, omega-3, other. ...Read more

It's Normal: The principle behind orthodontics is when pressure is put on teeth the bone supporting the tooth dissolves on the pressure side and fills in on the opposite side. Therefore, teeth do become loose during braces and tighten up in their new position. Discuss your concerns with your dentist. ...Read more

Is a chemical peel strong enough to work as a wrinkle treatment? I am 65 and my wrinkles have been bothering me for several years. Some of them are quite deep and i want to treat them before they worsen. I am worried about having major wrinkle treatment d

Is a chemical peel strong enough to work as a wrinkle treatment? I am 65 and my wrinkles have been bothering me for several years. Some of them are quite deep and i want to treat them before they worsen. I am worried about having major wrinkle treatment d

Maybe: With your grade of wrinkles a chemical peel would not be strong enough. A fractionated laser might help, ipl, or rf or ultherapy can help. Microneedling can improve the appearance. Dermal fillers and Botox can help. Topical creams with retinoic acid will help. Prp is another newer treatment. You can see an aesthetic physician to help with your concerns. ...Read more
