Should My Friend Still Go To Work If He Has Schizophrenia
Is it controlled?: Is your friend being treated for schizophrenia, and is the schizophrenia controlled? Is he or she a danger to himself and/or others?

Schizophrenia is a treatable psychiatric condition. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My husband feel a week ago and hit his head he did not want to go to the ER but after that he has not been himself he has been confused?
How do I get my bf to go to the doctoer for a check up.. He hasnt been in three years. He is young but i want him to get checked out.?
Encouragement: That's really hard. I feel for you. The only thing i can say is to encourage him with love and concern. If he is healthy, you might try saying to him to go as a favor to you. And that, if everything is ok, then it's no big deal - only 1-2 hours were spent and he's likely cleared for an entire year. If something does show up, say that it's better to catch it early when it's easier to fix. ...Read more
Should i be concerned if my bipolar boyfriend has been going through depression and broke up with me i want him to come back?
If is very painful: To see someone you care about depressed. When a person is depressed they may isolate from others and their judgment may be clouded by their mood. Hopefully he is getting good psychiatric treatment. When his depression begins to clear he may re-assess his relationship with you. In the meantime, i would try not to push too hard. Take care. ...Read more

My husband is talking to another woman and he will decide later on if he wants to be with me. He says i love you but still talks to her. What do I do?
No Answers: In reality, in these very stressful and emotional situations, the physician must step back and not tell you what to do. A physician and a therapist may both be needed to help you find the answers for yourself. This is a very painful situation and you must make your decisions that are best for you. You cannot control him. You can only control your reactions and decisions. Get a therapist! ...Read more

Tb and pregnancy my friend is 18 weeks pregnant and i hope she is being honest but he said she was told she has TB but nothing needs to be done. I thought once you find out you are sick with any thing they cure it asap to further more complications. Now s
There : There is a whole lot to this question. I will address the first part of the question. If your friend had active tuberculosis (tb), i can assure you that the doctor whould not say that nothing needs to be done. Tb is a serious, communicable disease. On the other hand, maybe her doctor told her that she is a PPD converter which means that she has been exposed to tuberculosis in the past. If your friend is crying, spotting, constipated and may not have understood medical information that was provided to her, i suggest she contact her OB doctor for assistance. ...Read more
My child went to urgent care yesterday to get treatment for her strep. They said she should be ok to go to school today. I thought she was contagious for a full 24hrs.
I have a friend that has no where to turn for her son. He is 29 and an addict. He will not get help and at this age she can not make him. She is drained of any funds already used to try and help him and she needs to know how she can help him now. Thoughts
That : That is a very difficult situation. She can call nar-anon in your area. This is an organization for families of patients with narcotic addiction. It does not cost money to join this organization, and has resources that they can recommend for her son in your community. It is important for your friend to know however, that if her son is 29 and will not get help, there is no legal way to force him to do so. Nar-anon families can provide your friend with support and she can also talk with families who have been through similar situations. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I posted a question about my friend and was told she needs to go to the doctor.Ive been trying to get her to go for awhile but she wont.What can I do?
Consider talking: with her family, or another close friend. Perhaps together you can talk with your friend. And even offer to go with her to the doctors. In the end, as an adult, it is her decision, but having more than one person comment on her situation may make her more aware something is wrong. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My husband needs surgery on his hand and wants to wait a month because he needs to keep working. Is it serious if he waits.?
What can we do for an 18 year old with aspergers who seems to be getting more violent when he doesn't get what he wants? He still has not gotten his drivers license and is refusing to try. He also refuses to get a job, which he has held down one before.
This is difficult.: Difficult because the 18yo is now an adult in most states. As an adult the 18yo has a right to make one's own choice even if the choice is not perfect. The answer would be to find a counselor who the 18yo trusts and who can help the 18yo to make educated choices. However, if the 18yo is not able to take care of oneself there may be a legal option to find a guardian who can step in. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I think my mother might be getting alzheimers, but she won't see a doctor. Is there any way to find out if she has it given she refuses doctors?
Possibly.: Alzheimer's is a diagnosis of exclusion, with the only definitive way of confirmation being a post-mortem exam of the brain. But the mini-mental status exam is useful as a screening test. A score below 24 out of 30 means a more thorough exam is needed. Clinical exam would be useful to exclude treatable causes of dementia. ...Read more
Why not: You obviously are considering it.

Make sure you use protection and empty your bladder afterwards. Good luck. ...Read more
My father always has headakes and a bad back pain these days and I wanted to see if he should go to his doctor
Ps. It's not for me it's for him?
He has to want to go: The problem with these situations that involve reluctant patients is they have to want treatment. You cannot force them to do what they don't want to do. You're his daughter and not his therapist, nor should you try to be. Perhaps a trusted friend would be better able to get him to go. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What can I do if my father recently told me he has cancer, is there any chance it will go and he will be ok?
Cancer is often cure: You have to be hopeful and also try to learn more about your father's cancer. Many cancers, if caught early are now curable. So find out: what type of cancer does he have? Where did it start and has it spread or was it localised to one spot only? Has it been removed? And removed completely? What is the stage of cancer and what treatments have been offered to him? His oncologist can address all of. ...Read more
