Need a referral for a Dr. who knows about FQ Toxicity Syndrome -- either in Las Vegas or via virtual consult. ?

Need a referral for a Dr. who knows about FQ Toxicity Syndrome -- either in Las Vegas or via virtual consult. ?

Good luck!: The fact that doctors often ignore the excellent advice not to use flouroquinolones as first-line therapy (in order not to contribute to resistant organisms, especially), does not speak well of us as a whole. Partly because the push to use it is colored by biased reports (Most research in this country is paid for by industry), and the other is the fear of being sued if safer first choices fail. ...Read more

Answer: : Answer: you present a complicated situation. With the accident you have had your normal anatomy changed and this may result in problems which are not normally expected. In the healing process some of the anatomy may have been compromised. Therefore many of the "usual" answers to your problemm may not apply. In complicated cases such as yours i would suggest you visit a university hospital/dental school for evaluation and help. The universities are up-to-date on all of the latest diagnostic procedures and treatment methods. The university environment also offers the widest range of possible specialties to help evaluate your problems. The university of pittsburgh school of dental medicine is one of the finest institutions of it's type in the world. They have an excellent department of head and neck specialists. I would seek out their council. ...Read more

Hi I am a uw-whitewater student. I am currently enrolled in a medical aspects class and must interview a doctor who knows about stickler syndrome.

Hi I am a uw-whitewater student. I am currently enrolled in a medical aspects class and must interview a doctor who knows about stickler syndrome.

Great! Ask a UW Dr.: There must be a student clinic, or nearby clinic that faculty have medical students, and find out where it is, and if that's a possibility. These doctors train doctors, and may have time to meet with you while they are training the young medical students too. That would be an ideal environment for you to learn from, and be in the front line too! ...Read more

How can I measure bouts of diarrhea from irritable bowel syndrome so my doctor knows how bad?

How can I measure bouts of diarrhea from irritable bowel syndrome so my doctor knows how bad?

Keep a log: One way would be to keep a record of dates and times of the events. This may also help with identifying any patterns, especially if certain foods are being eaten or certain stressors encountered frequently when the bouts are especially bad. By keeping the record you have an accurate log of events and do not have to try to remember which can sometimes be difficult if there are many. ...Read more
