Ask the owner/manager how they clean the instruments, see if your state regulates these and check their license, and ask others who have gone to that salon. Do not shave legs 1-2 days before going for a pedicure; this has been shown to increase chances of infection. ...Read more

No: High prolactin will cause you to stop having your period. The biotin is unrelated. You first need to do a pregnancy test. If this is negative, you need to be checked to see if you have a prolactin producing pituitary growth. ...Read more

Better vision: Magnification loupes allow your hygienist to see better--it's the difference between her looking at teeth at normal size vs baseball size. That means she can see more detail, which should allow her to provide a more detailed cleaning. Cleaning teeth is not just visual, though--a lot is done by feel, especially between the teeth. So the loupes can provide a benefit, just not on all areas of teeth. ...Read more

I took Ambien (zolpidem) literally every day for more than 8 years. Is it normal to get high-strung and panicky? Stopped a few yrs ago.

I took Ambien (zolpidem) literally every day for more than 8 years. Is it normal to get high-strung and panicky? Stopped a few yrs ago.

Normal? Maybe not.: Anyone can become "high strung and panicky" in intense circumstances. If this is a temporary state which dissipates when things calm down, it can be within normal range. If it continues for years, no it's not normal. Your current "panicky" feelings are not caused by previous Ambien (zolpidem) use, especially since you stopped it years ago. Please see your doctor for an evaluation of your concerns. ...Read more

Get it checked: Ankle injuries are often undertreated. I once had a patient limp in with what they thought was a sprain. We found they had sheared off the back 1/3 of the bottom of the tibia. Have a podiatrist check the ankle and do some x-rays. If its nothing, at least you'll know for sure. ...Read more
