Anyone know good pain killers that help with a slipped disk as voltaren (diclofenac) and nuro plus doesn't help!
Think "meds plus":
1st thing is, you should be guided by someone who can see you in the office who is a pain management doc who knows rehabilitation AND pain management.
"Nuro plus" is unlikely to be helpful. It's for general neuropathy. Not likely to help if you have a compressed nerve (which you might have)
Think Neurontin or Lyrica (pregabalin). They need careful dose adjustment.
Good physical therapy is also important. ...Read more

My 10 year old son was diagnosed with a pineal cyst 3 mys ago. He is having vision, hearing, seizures, and headaches. Why is nuro dr not concerned?
Not sure: Many of the symptoms you describe would not be caused by a pineal cyst. These cysts are typically benign and are watched over time to ensure they don't increase in size. The only symptom that could be related to the pineal cyst would be the vison, but there tends to be very specific vision changes related to pineal enlargement. If you're dissatisfied get a 2nd opinion. ...Read more

Every 2-3 hours: If you just had your baby, you should plan to nurse at least every 2-3 hours, with a goal of about 8-12 feedings per 24 hrs. It is a good idea to keep track of your feedings in the first week of life. Once your milk supply comes in and your baby starts to take more milk at a time, the feeding frequency declines. This is something your pediatrician will be able to provide further guidance on. ...Read more

About 10-15 min/side: In the first days after delivery, it will likely take a while for your breast milk to come in. Once your milk is in, most babies will effectively be able to nurse about 10-15 minutes per breast for each feeding. As your baby gets older, he/she may become more efficient & able to get the milk out faster than that. Also, some babies nurse from only one side at a time- if so, 20 minutes may suffice. ...Read more
