My name's Julie. I'm not usually bothered by seasonal allergies I am this year. If you take enough antihistamines will it build up in the system?

Nasal allergies: Antihistamines can offer relief for mild symptoms and may build up. Nasal steroids (Namsacort and Flonase are nonprescription) are going to be more effective for most people. The nasal steroids usually take 2-3 days to start making a difference and reach full effect the in 2 weeks. They are best used regularly in the season.

My wife Julie has extreme shaking from head to toe. Walking down stairs is impossible. It went away for 3 days but now it's back. Can we know why pls?

This is a simple?: Although I suspect the answer will not be simple. Take her to the hospital now. She needs to be evaluated by a neurologist. Your earlier question which I also answered about numbness tingling and loss of strength in the arm in the context of what you describe is worrisome for MS or a stroke. You live in a region with increased risk of MS. She has a neurological problem, this needs prompt attention ...Read more

The diagnostic feature is a low level of native TSH with high T3 (liothyronine) and free T4 levels ...Read more

My wife Julie has pins and needles down the iner right arm. Her right thumb is numb and the right index finger also with pins and needles. Why please?

My wife Julie has pins and needles down the iner right arm. Her right thumb is numb and the right index finger also with pins and needles. Why please?

Does Julie: Have trouble with her neck? This type of problem is oft associated with a pinched nerve root in the cervical spine (neck). Of course there are other explanations as well, but this is the first thing that comes to mind. A series of plain x rays, a history and a physical exam, along with a neurological assessment should illuminate the problem. See a family doctor or internist to start the evaluation ...Read more

What does angelina jolie's brca test, double mastectomy and oophorectomy mean for the average woman?

For the AVERAGE...: ...Risk woman, it should create awareness about: getting routine screening, knowing your family history well, and living a healthy lifestyle. It should not: make people want genetic tests without reason or make women ask for mastectomies out of fear. Of course, it is important to know if your risk is average or high in order to make the right decisions. Talk to your gyn about this. ...Read more

What age for a woman is considered a health risk to be pregnant? I am 35 and will be 36 in may. I get married in june and will want to have at least one child. What are the health risks of someone my age getting pregnant?

In: In general, pregnancies after 35 are considered higher-risk, although many studies now show that the vast majority of women who get pregnant after 35 have very successful pregnancies. Usually women after age 35 are followed more closely and sometimes have more testing performed. It may be a good idea to see a gynecologist that you would like to be followed with before you get pregnant to discuss your medical history and to have a general health screening. ...Read more

No good answer: If you're trying to figure out if your boyfriend is the father of the child this woman is pregnant with, pls remember that either way, he's still having sex with someone other than the person who's supposed to be his girlfriend (you!) they won't be able to determine who the father is by dates, & the real question is why does it matter to you-either way he's sleeping with someone else.

I: I believe your doctor has this right. It's debateable from an ethical standpoint. You should post this question to the lawyers here on avvo. Com.
