Had tick pulled out 3 weeks ago but now there is a lump and itches. Should i be concerned?  Treatment?

Tick: Generally the rash from lyme (erythema migrans) does not itch and is not raised. What could cause a bump and itch is if part of the tick was left in and is causing an inflammatory reaction or your body is mounting a local allergic reaction to the body part. I would check to make sure some to the tick was not left behind. Should also have blood work for lyme anyway. ...Read more

I've been admitted to hospital for severe infection/pain. Is 2 mg of IV morphine consider an effective treatment for pain? Right to ask for more?

Pain management: Everyone experiences pain a little differently. 2 mg of morphine is a good place to start -but u may need more depending on a number of factors. I always describe pain as a 'tidal wave' -u need to be out in front before it's crashing over you-then it's harder to catch up. Docs in hospitals sometimes undermedicate because they need to watch u for symptoms that could indicate worsening. Hold on ...Read more

I see my pain mgmt dr tomorrow for first diagnosed crps treatment. What are my chances of having a morphine pump installed? Pain is unbearable anymore

Complex regional Pain Syndrome: It is hard to predict what are the chances of a successful response to morphine pump. Other options are spinal cord stimulator, medications like cymbalta, lyrica, (pregabalin) amitriptyline, nortriptyline or neurontin. This should all be combined with physical therapy. There are specialty pharmacies that can prepare topical compound products with analgesics, muscle relaxers and any inflammatory medications. ...Read more

Also, keep in mind that the shampoos used to treat lice can cause some irritation to the scalp which can induce itching and may not represent a residual lice infestation. ...Read more

It's not that simple: IBS describes a constellation of signs and symptoms that we are only beginning to understand. Though we know it involves the disruption of the microbiome, we have yet to know how to effectively restore it, and how to address its neuro-psychiatric effects.
