Reoccurring dizzy spells after meals for past several days, low carb diet for several weeks.

Reoccurring dizzy spells after meals for past several days, low carb diet for several weeks.

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

Can lunber tap pain last for several weeks?

Can lunber tap pain last for several weeks?

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.

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

Malk happened a year ago .It was happening for several days and then go away for several months ..And now contin?

Trigeminal nerve: The most common form of paroxysmal orofacial pain is trigeminal neuralgia. Typically, a pain attack is accompanied by tic-like cramps or involuntary spasms of the facial muscles ("tic douloureux"), and often leads to a complaint of muscle pain. See a neurologist for evaluation, tests, imaging and treatment. ...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?

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

My wife suffers from trigeminal nerve
 happened a year ago .It was happening for several days and then go away for several months ..And now continue.

Trigeminal Neuralgia: Has she has an MRI (rule out MS, or compressive pathology)? How was diagnosis made? This may be a debilitating condition, but she may achieve relief with certain medications (Tricyclics, anticonvulsants), injections or surgery as the surgeon (ENT or neurosurg) sees fit. Seek expert medical help for your wife. Her quality of life depends on it. ...Read more

Several heart palpitations a year with nausea lasting for several hours each after exercise, echo and holter tests found nothing, what should I do?

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
