I took dhea and after stopping for a couple days i got pressure in my head and slight dizziness. What can I buy to fix it?

Stop the DHEA: Why were you taking it in the first place, since it's not recommended treatment for any medical disorder. It's metabolized to cortisone, estrogen and testosterone - and you don't have control of what your body converts it to. Stay away. ...Read more

I feel pressure in my head, dizziness, and pain at the back of my neck. I had a head and neck MRI / mrv last year that were normal. What is this?

I feel pressure in my head, dizziness, and pain at the back of my neck.  I had a head and neck MRI / mrv last year that were normal. What is this?

Take it easy: Sounds like you had a thorough exam and investigations, including MRI and mrv. The "pressure" in head could be because of "tension headache", which is not a serious problem. It happens due to muscular pain. The best remedy is plain tylenol (acetaminophen). Said that, did you also had a complete eye exam ? ...Read more

Physical exam: This is not from your spondylosis. Physical exam needed. What is your body mass index (bmi)? Does your systolic blood pressure run at 150 or higher most of the time? Did you get your blood checked (thyroid hormone levels etc)? Ask your family physician to look things over for you. ...Read more

Hyperventilation: from anxiety is a possibility, but if this happens again you should probably consult with us or see your GP. If it is hyperventilation, you can try breathing in and out of a small paper bag. Think calming thoughts, get with someone who cares about you or a pet or just go to a place where you feel safe and secure. Good luck! ...Read more

Yes orthostatic: This is probably orthostatic hypotension - the body needs to adjust when you move positions. I suspect this si why you feel dizzy. Your physician can clarify and be certain that your blood pressure is Ok Also your labs like blood counts are all OK and that there are not any circulatory or inner ear issues that could also be playing a role. ...Read more

I have a sore throat with what look like white pimples on my tonsils. I have a low grade fever and pressure in my heads and a headache and dizziness.

The latter is treated with gargles and mouth rinse. See your doctor for evaluation if you are not feeling better in 5-7 days. ...Read more

NO: Ibuprofen is an acid and can cause gastric ( stomach) irritation. I suggent following a clear fluid diet as noted below and if symtoms persist today- go to ER or UC clinic. NO SOLID FOODS FOR 48 HOURS Force fluids: 8-10 glasses/day: Electrolyte rich fluids- Gatorade, Powerade, Vitamin Water Protein rich fluids: broth bullion, consume. AVOID ALL CITRUS JUICES: orange, grapefruit, pineapple, cranberry etc. Avoid all aspirin, Advil, Aleve (naproxen) ( NSAIDS ). If not improving go to private physician or ER. ...Read more
