I've just started fish oil pills 1000 mg requested by my med doctor is it normal to have the runs have been taken for around 4 days now?
Stop them: The diarrhea is from the fish oil. Stop taking them. After it clears you can try at lower doses, a different brand or liquid type(barleans is pretty ok tasting) to see if that helps. You can also take calcium to help the bones and since it tends to constipate people, it is a nice mix with the fish oil. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My med. doctor thinks that I'm having fever because of Sertraline. Every med. that I've had have given me difficult side effects. What can I do?
Possible: If you can stop sertraline and fever subsides, your doctor was right. Some people are highly sensitive to medications. You may be one. Consider non-medication therapies meantime. I don't know why you are taking sertraline, but you may do better than you think exploring other strategies to feel better: eg, psychotherapy, exercise, meditation, yoga, improving your nutrition etc. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Had CT to check arteries in lungs. 3mm nodule found. Intern. Med. Doctor said normal, no worry. Pulmonary said scan in 12mo. I need any more radiation?
Follow the pulmonary: 3mm nodule does not need any treatment but to be on the safe side repeat cat scan in 1 year to see if the nodule has got bigger in side or any other changes the fear of radiation has to be taken in context of your medical condition and if you don't do cat scan it may miss if the nodule has increased in size or character and that is important. We do not want to second guess the pulmonologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

In december of 2012, the door of a metro bus was closed on my right arm and hand. The initial diagnosis was that of fracture... I was referred to usc med. Center and the doctors said that there was no fracture. I continue to experience occassional flinchi
If : If you are continuing to experience symptoms that affect you or your ability to to return to the level of function you had prior to the injury, it might be worthwhile to be re-evaluated. There are lots of different types of structures in any given extremity and even if it isn't a fracture, something could still be going on. I'm not exactly sure what you mean by flinching, but would a spasm be another reasonable description of what happens? If some of the muscles in your forearm were injured, they could conceivably go into spasm if irritated. Difficulty moving one or more of the joints in the fingers could be related to a tendon or muscle injury. Good luck! ...Read more
