See details: Your thyroid function is normal so one needs to consider other causes for your symptoms. The gerd is likely unrelated. The possible causes are several and include physical issues as well as chronic depression. I would see a rheumatologist if your own doctor cannot find a specific cause. ...Read more

Are Prions the only free-roaming infectious disease? Are Toxins free roaming also? I imagine the body records everything that 1 is exposed 2?

Are Prions the only free-roaming infectious disease? Are Toxins free roaming also? I imagine the body records everything that 1 is exposed 2?

Unclear: Prions, which are microscopic protein particles, are not free roaming. Infection by then is very rare and has been primarily associated with contaminated beef, monkey and other exotic animals. Mad cow disease, kuru, and Jacob Kreutzfeldt disease are the most well-defined illnesses. I do not understand your question about the body's recording. Do not concern yourself. Or avoid beef and other meats ...Read more

I have pimples on my face(one or two pimples) which is roaming on face. Please suggest me how to get relief from this?

Many options.: Begin with benzoyl peroxide. It's effective and well tolerated for most people. Start with a low strength and increase if needed. With stubborn acne, add a second product with a different active ingredient, such as salicylic acid, alpha-hydroxy acid, or sulfur. But do see a dermatologist; in the long run it's way cheaper than trying all those "miracle" non-prescription concoctions. ...Read more

Something (bug?) got into my tissues (via ear?) and is roaming around particularly near my pelvic bone, but all over. How does one get help with this?

Psychosomatic : I'm sorry you are not feeling well. The symptoms you are having cannot be due to a bug or parasite. Your history suggests you may be suffering from health anxiety. If you have had these problems for years with no medical solution it may be time to see a psychiatrist who will help you if indeed your symptoms are psychosomatic. Get the right help and get well soon! ...Read more

I have ambiopia due to prescription difference (hyperopia) I don't have cross eyes or "roaming" eye. Is my child likely to get the same thing?

I have ambiopia due to prescription difference (hyperopia) I don't have cross eyes or "roaming" eye. Is my child likely to get the same thing?

Not necessarily: Amblyopia is not itself hereditary but the factors which can cause it can be. In other words, your children may not get amblyopia but they are more likely to have a difference in prescription between the two eyes (anisometropia). Take your children to see an eye doctor at 6 months of age and again and 3 years of age. This way, any problems can be corrected in time to prevent amblyopia. ...Read more

I'm 30 and my ambiopia is due to presciption indifference.(rt eye, lt is fine) never had roaming or wandering eye. Is it possible I will later in life?

I'm 30 and my ambiopia is due to presciption indifference.(rt eye, lt is fine) never had roaming or wandering eye. Is it possible I will later in life?

Possible: Depending on how poor the vision is in the amblyopic eye, it is possible that the poorly-seeing eye may "drift" outwards over many years. This certainly does not happen in all cases, but some do drift if the vision is very poor. It can be corrected with eye muscle surgery if the appearance is cosmetically unacceptable. See an eye md who does strabismus surgery for evaluation. ...Read more

Rheumatoid factor just out of range at 20.2. Normal esr, ana. Bilateral hip pain, chest, and roaming pains in other joints, never swelling. Is it ra?

Unlikely : Rheumatoid arthritis is diagnosed based on a number of criteria. All criterion has a point value. You must have 6 points to be diagnosed. What you described would be 2 points. This isn't enough for rheumatoid arthritis (ra). You should still see a doctor familiar with RA to be sure. The most important part if the diagnosis is the feel of the joints not the lab. ...Read more

I have just recovered from bronchitis and sinusitis, however I’ve developed pain in the bottom of my right rib. Coughing, touching or if a move a certain way causes extreme pain. (General standing and sitting I am in no pain.)?

Right now give it a few days, but keep taking deep b ...Read more
