Not sure: Is it possible you have some other reason for dizziness. It is not commonly a side effect of eating protein and fat. Anyhow recurrent symptoms are always more significant than a one time thing. I would suggest you see your doctor. Maybe he can check if you somehow are getting hypoglycemia. ...Read more

It shouldn't: I assume you are talking about a post-dural puncture headache caused after a spinal tap. If so, the resulting headache usually lasts only a few days. If symptoms persist despite adequate hydration and analgesic treatment, you could consider a blood patch. A blood patch is the placement of some of your own blood in the epidural space near the source of the CSF leak. ...Read more

Do brain tumor headaches tend to come and go? Had headache for several days that stopped for a couple weeks and now is back again for several days.
IT IS A COMMON: MISCONCEPTION that the major symptom of a brain tumor is HEADACHE...this only occurs with larger tumors (and OTHER symptoms are much more common plus NEUROLOGIC changes occur before headache per se) It is also COMMON SENSE that (as you point out) the headaches from such tumors do not "go away"! Hope this helps! Dr Z ...Read more

I've been taking 100mg minocycline for acne for a few years now and for the past few months it has not been working near as well. Other options?
Spironolactone: Acne in adult women is a hormone effect. Usually the hormones are normal (do you have normal menses?). It can be worse in response to progesterones used for birth control. It can be part of PCOS. Only about 10% of such women respond to antibiotics such as minocycline. Most of them love the result from the antiandrogen spironolactone, typically 100mg daily, result in 2-3 months. Safe onless pregnan ...Read more
Operated for CSF rinorreha 1990. Under anti epileptic drug for past 22yrs. For last one month forehead swelling without pain, discharge rash, headache?
Unrelated: First, forehead swelling probably has no connection to your old surgery. Second, use of prophylactic seizure medicine was probably not necessary - especially for this long. May be wise to get good quality ct of skull to look at frontal nasal region to be sure no cyst or erosion has occurred. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

Intermittent headaches and dizziness for two months several epistaxis episodes in the last week smokes pack a day any gueses?
Several heart palpitations a year with nausea lasting for several hours each after exercise, echo and holter tests found nothing, what should I do?
Need evaluation.: I assume by your question, that the holter was done while feeling the palpitations? If so, and no rhythm problems were found, the palpitations are probably nothing to worry about, if, however, you did not have symptoms while monitored, it could still be undiagnosed arrhythmia. Start by decreasing intensity of exercise, and consult a physician (start with primary care, or choose cardiolgist). ...Read more
