Hem ov cyst x8 weeks now on bcp history endo&dor tried aspiration & marcaine still painful how do I convince my dr to just remove it? I know his concerns

Just relax: The size and appearance of the cyst are impotant. If it is indeed a cyst and under> say 8 cm, wo do not remove, we watch...Time, decrease in size and disappearance will be assurring. In your age, another cyst will probably prop up.
Do not persuade...Did you push for aspiration? Bcp is a reasonable approach...Besides, no one can tell with certainty whetherthe pain is related to the cyst. ...Read more

Numbness = hours: Marcaine lasts 6-8 hours. Some temporarily altered sensation + laxity of the tissues after this procedure would be expected. Often people are prescribed laxatives which will also increase the chance of some leaking/soiling. If it is happening more than you think it should then can decrease laxative dose +\- a physical examination/review is needed. However, it sounds like it may just settle down. ...Read more

Following cortizone type injections (marcaine, kenalog, (triamcinolone)?) in hip I have pain in both legs - like growing pains. This has happened 3 out of 3 times.?

Pain from injection.: This could simply be irritation of the nerve root, could be a localized reaction to the injection giving you muscle pains. Hard to say without physical exam, but this seems to be an individualized reaction to the injections. If this side effect is too undesirable, I would recommend forgoing any further injections. ...Read more

Can allergy medicine (i.E. Zyrtec) become ineffective after a while?

Can allergy medicine (i.E. Zyrtec) become ineffective after a while?

Yes: Yes, Zyrtec (cetirizine) can become ineffective after a while. Zyrtec (cetirizine) tends to block histamine responses; however, the immune system diversifies with time and sends additional signals to respond to allergy (develops an adaptive response with IgE antibodies, B cells, T cells, etc). Once this occurs, antihistamines only block a subset of the allergic immune response. ...Read more

I'm curious as to what is the best medicine to cure allergy?

I'm curious as to what is the best medicine to cure allergy?

No cure yet, but...: Allergy shots (allergen immunotherapy) is currently the only treatment that is disease modifiying, meaning it can change how the body responds to exposure to allergens. It is "natural" and long lasting effects carry on after shots are stopped. It works for most, but not all people. Closest thing to a cure so far..... For more read my blog at: http://www.
