I'm having a slight hand tremors and my job needs very constant hands and btw I'm a bodybuilder so what could be the treatment.
I am experiencing intermittent hand tremors. Not sure around the cause, but is this normal or does it warrant further investigation and treatment?
It might: It is a very expensive trreatment but its greatest benefit is treating spinal injury asap. Read my blog "oxygen, the spark of life" you can google. Oxygen is the very root of energy metabolism and a great deal of energy is required for healing. But, like everything else, it has to be dosed. Too much oxygen is as bad as too little. ...Read more

Is it possible for hyperbaric oxygen therapy to be effective for possible brain damage linked to long term solvent abuse?
Yes: We have used hbot for brain injuries of all types for over 10 years and have gotten excellent results. If I ever have a condition of this kind, an hbot chamber is one of the first places I want to be. Jain's textbook of hyperbaric medicine is a good starting place for info about the effects of hbot. ...Read more

Iv been experiencing hand tremors for past 5 years and iv been treated for all posible Cns problems but to no avail. Tremors are only in hands. Why?
Essential tremor?: Is your tremor the same in both hands? Is it present when you hold your hands up, and absent when they are lying in your lap? That sounds like essential tremor. Most people have a small tremor. Some people respond well to medical treatments such as propranolol or primidone. Some people have a more severe tremor which responds to a device called a deep brain stimulator. Hope that helps! ...Read more

You need evaluation: You need to be evaluated by a neurologist, a psychiatrist, an ophthalmologist, a gastroenterologist, and a psychologist for neuropsych testing. Yours is a very complicated case that will take a team of physicians or a very bright internist to diagnose. Please ask your general practitioner for referrals to the above specialties until a cause for all of your symptoms is identified. ...Read more

I was wondering what are the effects of hyperbaric oxygen treatments on congestive heart failure?
Hyperbaric oxygen: Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is delivered in a chamber. It can be single person chamber or a multiplace chamber. 100% oxygen is delivered within the chamber under pressures equal to 2 to 2.5 atmospheres of pressure depending on the medical problem that you physician is treating. This is equal to 33 feet of seawater in pressure. The treatments last two to 2.5 hours; they are done daily. ...Read more
Possibly yes: The usefulness of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in healing chronic diabetic foot ulcer is well documented. There is only anecdotal evidence that hbo will help acute injuries heal. Inflammation is evident both in chronic wounds and in acute injury. Hbo is known to decrease inflammation so theoretically acute injuries should resolve more quickly with hbo. More study is needed before hbo use for injury. ...Read more
Variable: The answer is somewhat variable. The effects of hyperbaric oxygen can be immediate (in the case of carbon monoxide poisoning), but can be long - very long (for example, in the case of radiation cystitis). We usually wait about 1 month before seeing effects in diabetic wounds, but again this varies depending on the size of the wound, and its "complexity" (i.e., underlying medical conditions). ...Read more
A few reversible: Hyperbaric oxygen (hbo) therapy is administration of 100% oxygen under pressure. The oxygen acts like a drug in this envirionment. Some diabetics will have a significant drop in their blood sugar but it goes back to safe range when they eat or drink. Patients getting a lot of hbo (over 40) can have worsening of distance vision) that will revert to pre-hbo level once treatments are stopped. ...Read more

Sorry, no.: The only evidence-based treatment of autism is intensive, repetitive behavioral & educational therapy geared at the child's developmental age. When a young child is ready, "peer therapy" is effective, adult-supervised play with a neurotypical peer in multiple settings. Group therapy at age 6 & > is repetitive, rote training in basic skills. ...Read more
All-cotton (100%)!: Cotton, being a natural fiber, is probably the most well-studied in the hyperbaric chamber. Compared to silk and synthetic fibers (which engender static electricity), cotton is considered the safest fiber in a _pressurized_ chamber containing 100% oxygen, waiting for a spark or heat to explode. We use special 100% cotton scrubs and static-free detergent for use in our chambers. ...Read more
