Hypochondria?: If she thinks she has many disorders that she might not truly have, it may be hypochondria. An adult child can find mom a good primary care doctor to check on all those symptoms she thinks she has, so that possible disorders are ruled out (that may mean driving mom to doctor appointments). Be sure she has ppo insurance or better, so that her doctor(s) has the resources to see her multiple times. ...Read more

Walk 15-30 min/day: Walking can strengthen back muscles, decrease back pain, increase strength and endurance and help a person lose weight. It is safe for almost everyone, even with back problems. A person who doesn't do much walking may want to start with just 15 minutes at a slow pace and work up to longer and faster walks. It would be great for you to walk with her as a motivator. ...Read more

Get treated: It sounds like your Mom may have a Urinary Tract Infection and you should not wait to get her treated. She must go to the doctor right away. Doctors will test her urine for signs of infection and prescribe an oral antibiotic. Left untreated, a Urinary Tract Infection can affect the kidneys and also cause sepsis, infection that makes its way into the bloodstream. As women age, more UTIs. Good luck. ...Read more

My mother thinks that i need ritalin, (methylphenidate) just because my doctor keeps prescribing it! can I refuse to take it?

Yes: No one will force feed you pills, unless you are a baby. So, ultimately it is up to you. You will have to live with the consequences of your actions. So, if not taking the medication leads to school failure, then you will have to take summer school, make up work, or whatever. If you get kicked out of school, then you will have to attend a different one, etc. ...Read more

Combo treatment. : If you have plantar fasciitis, and hurt most with the first few steps in the morning, the more you can do together, the better: #1: supportive shoes. #2: firm inserts or orthotics. #3: oral antiinflammatories (check with your doctor). #4: stretching your foot and calf. #5: icing (10 min at a time). You may also need physical therapy or cortisone injections, or eswt if available in your area. ...Read more

I need a qualified doctor that can properly complete the immigrationform n-648 for my mother.

I need a qualified doctor that can properly complete the immigrationform n-648 for my mother.

Your : Your mother's primary care provider should be able to fill out this form. If she does not have one then you will have to find her a primary care provider who is accepting new patients. If she has insurance then you will need to go to your assigned doctor if applicable. If she is a cash patient then you can call and schedule an appointment with a doctor that has openings. The best way to find a good doctor is by word of mouth. Ask friends or family if they have a doctor they could recommend. If not try a local community clinic or look for doctors near your local hospital. Good luck. ...Read more
