Comments: Whole range of subdural presentations, but typically begin at time of head injury. Very rare that mild concussion is also associated with subdural bleeding. Unless you have increasing headaches, nausea and vomiting, dizziness, blurred or double vision, or unilateral weakness, no reason to worry.

Used methylprednisolone 4mg for 22 days and stopped 2 months ago. I am seeing muscle weakness. Does it go by itself? If so, after how many weeks?

Used methylprednisolone 4mg for 22 days and stopped 2 months ago. I am seeing muscle weakness. Does it go by itself? If so, after how many weeks?

See below: The question I have is why you were using methlyprednisone---was it for myositis because if you are noticing more muscle weakness, it may mean that it is active. If you developed corticosteroid myopathy, you should get better with time and physical though that would be unusual to occur with the length of time that you were on it. See your doctor to further evaluate. ...Read more

How long does radiesse (dermal fillers) usually last? I keep reading how it can last a year or more. But how long is normal? I don't really want to be getting injections every 2 or 3 months.

.

Radiesse (dermal fillers) : Radiesse lasts, on average 18 months. I have had patients where it lasts over 2 years. The shortest was 18 months. Botox & Dysport only last 3 months. Most of the dermal fillers last a year. Do your research. Radiesse is a great product-i use it regularly-but, it is not reversible. Restylane/perlane and juvederm are reversible. Meaning, if it is done wrong, they can be dissolved with another injection. Radiesse has to be physically remove. Make sure the treating doctor is well versed on injecting radiesse. ...Read more
