Second opinion: You may want to seek a second opinion both on the diagnosis and therapy being instituted. In general, while the syndrome is somewhat heterogeneous, most patients who are treated do relatively well. Good luck.

Good day. Please i need information on obesity. 30 hazards of obesity syndrome. 25 therapeutic measures for obesity syndrome ?

Too much : Cannot fit all that you asked for in a 400 character limit answer. In general, obesity has many bad effects on the body including putting stress on the heart, joints, and on the pancreas. The only way to make these stresses better is to improve fitness and lose weight. See your doctor and/ or dietitian for advice as to how to do this safely and effectively.

I have gilbert syndrome with nash. Is it advisable to take a drink a day.

I have gilbert syndrome with nash. Is it advisable  to take a drink a day.

No.: Gilbert's really doesn't cause any problems. You are just more prone to looking jaundiced, which is for the most part a cosmetic problem. But nash means that your liver is in distress, due to fat and not to alcohol. But it doesn't matter what the cause is. Your liver is not happy, and any amount of alcohol will make it worse. So even though your liver problem is not due to alcohol, don't drink.

Hypoglycemia?: This doesn't sound like the metabolic syndrome, but it could be reactive hypoglycemia (low blood sugar after eating). Although you can make this diagnosis with a glucose tolerance test, the treatment is simply to eat more frequent smaller meals, so one approach is just to make that change, and only do the test if it doesn't work.

Is taking 100mg of tramindol a day for restless leg syndrome ok?

Is taking 100mg of tramindol  a day for restless leg syndrome  ok?

Tramindol ?: Tramadol is used as a second line of treatment for rest less leg syndrome (rls) and 100 mg does sound like ok enough dose. First line of treatment is in fact Dopamine agonists like ropinarol. I hope those have been tried before tramadol trial. Off course your physician is in a better position to advise.

I'm on methadone 10mg 4 day and dialudid 2mg 2 day.  Iv had 3 l back fusions & 2 comp syndrome surgeries. I have severe pain still.  R these good meds?

Yes and No: It can be common to have residual or even chronic pain after multiple surgeries and the pain medications are given for pain relief. This being said, the idea behind pain relief and opiate pain medications are changing drastically now and new advice being recommended includes weaning down on your pain medications and use of pain interventions to help treat your pain rather than mask it.

Is restless leg syndrome common during the day too or only at night?

Is restless leg syndrome common during the day too or only at night?

Not common: RLS/WED is not common during the day. It can happen during the day but there is a night requirement of worsening symptoms. Typically the early morning hours are symptom free and those that get symptoms during the day will begin more midmorning or afternoon.

What is cubital tunnel syndrome caused by being on the computer about 7 hours a day could that cause cubital tunnel syndrome ?

What is cubital tunnel syndrome caused by being on the computer about 7 hours a day could that cause cubital tunnel syndrome ?

Here : Here is a copy of my answer to another user with the same question: contrary to popular belief, most cases of carpal tunnel syndrome are "idiopathic, " that is, we don't know the cause. Cubital tunnel syndrome is similar. It is compression of the ulnar nerve at the inside of the elbow. Similar to the carpal tunnel, there is a bony base--the medial epicondyle of the humerus--and a ligamentous roof--osborne's ligament. Why nerves get compressed is still a mystery. However, there are certain things to avoid once you have cubital tunnel syndrome. A tightly flexed elbow, such as when talking on a small cell phone or doing hair and make up, stretches the nerve around the bone. Leaning on the elbows can pinch the nerve more and make symptoms worse. At night, avoid sleeping with the elbows bent or resting on the inner elbow. Some people have a known cause, such as an old fracture that causes the medial elbow to be longer and therefore stretch the nerve (cubitus valgus). Some people have ulnar nerves that jump out of the groove (subluxate). Others have had a direct impact that injured the nerve. Most people don't need surgery for cubital tunnel syndrome. It tends to respond well to physical therapy with nerve glides--exercises designed to move the nerve through its tunnel. However, if there is constant numbness or you develop weakness, the nerve may need to be released or moved to a location where it is less likely to be compressed.

Unlikely: Carpal tunnel syndrome comes from pressure on the medican nerve at the wrist. There is no evidence that typing or clicking causes either.

Can restless leg syndrome carry on through out the day after suffering all night?

Can restless leg syndrome carry on through out the day after suffering all night?

RLS symptoms: can persist. Be sure to have your iron and ferritin levels checked to exclude Ekbom syndrome (RLS due to low levels of the cofactor (iron) for tyrosine hydroxylase (the enzyme that converts Tyrosine to L Dopa.)
