My 2 yr daughter has hand, foot and mouth disease for last 4 days. The ulcers / blisters in mouth make it difficult for her to drink and eat.. What medication will be most suitable?

Numb the mouth: Anything that will decrease the pain in the mouth will help her drink. Ice cold foods act as a local anesthesia as they numb the area. Try popsicles, ice cream, jello, as well as pedialyte popsicles that will keep her hydrated. Also oragel will help. As it is a viral disease, there is no antibiotics that will help it. It will go away on its own. ...Read more

I am taking cymbalta (duloxetine) for fibromyalgia and have gained 20lbs with hand and feet swelling. Are there other drugs that treat fibromyalgia with less side ?

I am taking cymbalta (duloxetine) for fibromyalgia and have gained 20lbs with hand and feet swelling. Are there other drugs that treat fibromyalgia with less side ?

Make sure is Fibro: Fibromyalgia is one of the most overly diagnosed condition today. There are many underlying conditions that can explain many of the symptoms that are more common-place and actually treatable. Conditions of the neck and low back will frequently have "myofascial" (muscle, tendon, ligament=soft-tissues) related pain that will spread quite far at times. Seek pain specialist eval. If needed for options. ...Read more

The : The wrist is a complex structure involving 15 bones coming together. There are, therefore, multiple joints between these bones and a large number of ligaments holding them all together. We still have only a very basic understanding of the mechanics of the wrist. A good hand surgeon will try to evaluate all of these structures with a careful examination and x-rays. Sometimes getting what are called "stress views" will show injuries that typical x-rays will not. Mri can be helpful, but usually with stronger magnets at 3 tesla. However, they can still miss injuries or report injuries that are not really there. They are only meaningful if they clarify the symptoms and exam findings. Thankfully, most injuries resolve with rest, but there are 2 injuries that can be missed and have significant consequences: scaphoid fractures and scapholunate ligament injuries. With any wrist injury, a re-evaluation in 10-14 days can be helpful to show injuries that were not apparent when the injury happened. I would make sure you have a follow-up appointment with your physician. ...Read more
