Would cortisone shots help for my whiplash spine injury, I am losing the fight to try stay positive, being in pain I just can`t take it much longer?

Would cortisone shots help for my whiplash spine injury, I am losing the fight to try stay positive, being in pain I just can`t take it much longer?

Neck pain: Cortisone shots are a mainstay for the treatment of neck pain. Whiplash injury is an outdated term and really doesn't describe the type of problem that you are suffering from. See a neurosurgeon to help explain the problem and to develop a focused treatment plan to reduce or eliminate the pain. ...Read more

21 year-old man with uncomfortable breathing sensations when inhaling cold air, with some history of sneezing and respiratory allergies.....?

Zen Breathing.: This sounds an awful lot like bronchitis or asthma brought on by breathing cold air, either with or without humidity. I suffered from this when I was about your age and occasionally have some symptoms even now, especially if the conditions are right. You need to control your environment and limit your exposure to triggering elements. Seek the help of a specialist to offer medication to help. ...Read more

How long does it take to get cholesterol results? Its been 3 days ago? And how do u know if its good or bad?

How long does it take to get cholesterol results? Its been 3 days ago? And how do u know if its good or bad?

Hours: Once the blood is in the lab, the lab has the results in an hour or two. The delay is in the reporting, sending it to your doc's office, getting it in front of your doc to review, getting his comments to his assistant or nurse, then the possible delay in contacting you. No harm in calling to ask about the results. Sometimes things do fall through the cracks. ...Read more

If people are diagnosed earlier with ms, does this increase their chances of MS getting worse because u have longer to fight the illness?

If people are diagnosed earlier with ms, does this increase their chances of MS getting worse because u have longer to fight the illness?

Perhaps reverse: Earlier diagnosis is made, the earlier treatment can start. Better outcomes are achieved. Note you are young and on tysabri (natalizumab). Kudos to your neurologist, as the evidence is very strong to support the most potent medications early. The interferons are no longer the direction to start, and those who take potent meds early, supplement vitamin d-3, follow low fat, low salt diets do well. ...Read more

Hi. I have a work presentation to make in 3 days & m 2 anxious. I have lorazepam in .05  mg. How much to take before & how long before?  Thank u. 

Hi. I have a work presentation to make in 3 days & m 2 anxious. I have lorazepam in .05  mg. How much to take before & how long before?  Thank u. 

Try before!: Make sure you try the medicine before. Lorazepam is sedating and you will want to be focused and not groggy. You may want to ask for a beta blocker which is also good, but does not make you groggy. Try them before the presentation. If you HAVE to take the lorazepam since it is only three days away, then only 0.25 mg please. ...Read more

If u take 7 vauim 5mg and take niacin ANd driNkAwwater and don't take them alot how long will it take to get out of your system?

That depends: on whether you took the Valium all at one time (although 35 mg would be an overdose), or over what time period you took the Valium. Valium is a very long acting drug, and its half-life can vary from 20-100 hours. In general, it requires 5 half-lifes for a drug to be out of your system, that would be 100-500 hours (4-21 days). Metabolites may so on drug testing for up to 42 days (6 weeks). ...Read more
