Many potential: First thing I would suggest you doing, is having an EEG, an electroencephalogram. This will determine, if these periodic brain fog may be related to a seizure phenomena, another cause of brain fog that comes and goes, is migraines. Usually, these are accompanied by a headache, although not always. Constant brain fog, is common with autoimmune diseases like lupus. Other potential causes, are hormon ...Read more

Sounds pretty normal: This doesn't sound like you have any "immune issues". It is very common for people to feel wiped out, fatigued, and so on for a few months after any severe illness. Discuss with your doctor, but these feelings probably will gradually clear up. Good luck! ...Read more

How long does it take for chronic subderal hematomo to show up? How rare in young adults are they? Had mild concussion 1 month and 8 days ago no ct

Varies: The term chronic when used with subdural hematoma just refers to the time period it has been present. Subdural hematoma formation usually occurs following an injury, although they can occur with other causes such as the use of blood thinners for example. A neurologist or neurosurgeon are the specialists that typically treat them. Don't hesitate to be seen and thoroughly evaluated. ...Read more

How long will ittake for the kareotyping results on a 5 month old baby.its been 10_days now.longer time means any prob with results?

Karyotyping takes up: to a month for results to return, depending on the lab. The results reveal chromosomal abnormalities. A Chromosomal Microarray reveals deletions or additions in smaller sequences of the genes that are arranged into the chromosomes. For a child with developmental delays, a DNA probe for Fragile X is also done. To detect Down Syndrome or other chromosomal anomaly, a karyotype is sufficient. ...Read more

My husband made two sessions jacuzzi two consequent days, 1 hr length each, does this affect his sperm health? For how long will the harm persist?

See answer: Men's testes are outside the body for a reason: they need to be in cooler environment to produce healthy sperm. Can take 2-3 months to produce mature sperm cell and immature sperm are especially vulnerable. Hot tubs, saunas, etc are probably okay in moderation, but the more overheating and the more marginal the baseline sperm quality, the more adverse the effect. Best to avoid if pregnancy desired. ...Read more

How is a person supposed to act 3 days after getting a pacemaker? Male 87 years old weakness sleeps a lot no energy can't catch my breath after minimal walking across the room unsteady on feet no balance

weakness

unsteady on feet no balance

It : It depends in part on how you were before the pacemaker was placed. If all of these signs and symptoms are brand new since having the pacemaker placed then you need to be seen immediately. These are very concerning symptoms if they occurred after an invasive procedure. If these are not dramatically different than how you were before the pacemaker was placed and you were expecting rapid improvement with the implant, recognize that many of the programming changes that help "fit" the pacemaker to you will typically be made during your return visits in the first month after implantation. I would still recommend contacting your cardiologist and discussing your concerns with him/her. ...Read more

25mg amitriptyline for 8 years. Feel anxiety/stress 2 days after drinking. Symptoms can last up to a week. Feels like no pili. Is this related?

25mg amitriptyline for 8 years. Feel anxiety/stress 2 days after drinking. Symptoms can last up to a week. Feels like no pili. Is this related?

Probably: The best evidence of the relationship of your symptoms to your drinking is the history you give, but i can also think of a way to justify it. Amitriptyline is a tca and 25 mg is a very low dose. We have shown that, with ssris, even moderate alcohol use can interfere with its effectiveness, and i would suspect the same is true for amitriptyline. Consider drinking less or not at all. ...Read more

How long does it take for chronic subderal hematomo to show up? How rare in young adults are they? Had mild concussion 1 month and 16 days ago no ct

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. The absolute vast majority of closed head injuries have no critical sequelae. ...Read more
