Carotid artery: Is main one the other one vertebral, most common problem is atheromatous plaque formation and narrowing the lumen or dislodging ultimately leads to stroke. You must speak to your doctor who ordered the test, will put together clinical and radiological findings together to give you the right answer.

Do radiologists read films online now or on those boxes?

Do radiologists read films online now or on those boxes?

Digital: Just like typewriters and CD's the film box is a thing of the past. Radiology is almost exlusively by computer in the US.

Hip pain and clicking on walking, running and cycling on recumbent bike? MRI is free reviewed by 2 radiologist and 1 orthopaedic surgeon.... What?

Hip pain and clicking on walking, running and cycling on recumbent bike? MRI is free reviewed by 2 radiologist and 1 orthopaedic surgeon.... What?

May not be your hip: Snapping hip syndrome may be due to an external cause (eg., snapping of the iliotibial band or gluteus maximus over the greater trochanter) or an internal cause (eg., snapping of the iliopsoas tendon over the iliopectineal eminence, acetabular labral tear, intra-articular loose body). Sometimes ultrasound performed during maneuvers that replicate the click can be helpful to discriminate.

Possible infection: Pleural effusion is reaction to inflammation either in lung, chest wall or possibly something under left side of diaphragm Must rule out bacterial or fungal causes as well as viral.

Why do I have trouble talking in a group when I do fine online?

Why do I have trouble talking in a group when I do fine online?

Cyber-Connection: Speaking to a group of individuals ranks as one the most anxiety producing situations for anyone. Online there is a protective layer due to something I call "cyber-connection protection". There can be less spontaneity in a cyber-connection. Online your feedback may be limited or non-existent. Both factors would lead to fewer troubles when talking to an online versus a live group.

This BASIC is free: This is HealthTap BASIC, where you post free questions and get free answers, from U.S. doctors. HealthTap BASIC provides information, not medical care, and not conversations with doctors. Try the "premium" services (PRIME or CONCIERGE) where you can have private virtual consultations with doctors. For psychiatry, CONCIERGE would the best choice (PRIME is mainly for basic medical care issues).

I have an anxiety when I used to presnt in front of puplic. What can I do to relive this anxiety and feel free to talk?

Work Your Way Up: Imagine different types of audiences to present to - audiences you think likely to judge your performance (a) very critically; (b) somewhat critically; (c) neutrally; (d) somewhat uncritically; and (e) very uncritically. Give presentations to each type of audience, working your way up from the least to the most critical. Once you feel comfortable with one type, graduate to the next type.

Can I get consultation online to talk about my hormone? Bioidentical

Can I get consultation online to talk about my hormone? Bioidentical

Try HealthTap PRIME: Consultations are through PRIME, our premium service. Remember... it is not a good idea to take anything with hormonal effects that is not an FDA approved drug, because non-approved drugs may or may not have correct ingredients nor pure ingredients, and the advertised effects may or may not occur in humans, plus the side effects are usually uncertain and unadvertised.

Why are so many people talking about eating gluten free? Is this a fad?

Why are so many people talking about eating gluten free? Is this a fad?

Probably not a fad: About 1% of population develop a disease called celiac-sprue from gluten and many more have gluten sensitivity. However, if you have neither of these problems, it is fine to eat gluten despite the hyperbole spreading about it. Although many sources of gluten contain genetically modified gluten, there is no good evidence that it causes long term problems for those without sensitivity or celiac dx.

Free PRIME trial?: If you have a free trial, and want to know why you can't talk to a doctor, just go to PRIME and talk to a doctor. Take this free opportunity to ask the doctor why it might be that you can't talk to a doctor. The PRIME doctor will give you an answer. The only thing we have to fear is fear itself... said a famous president.

Survivor of horrific abuse, PTSD, scared of therapy would I benefit from online therapy scared to talk to someone in person about the horrific abuse?

Survivor of horrific abuse, PTSD, scared of therapy would I benefit from online therapy scared to talk to someone in person about the horrific abuse?

Trauma take it slow: It's common to be scared to talk to someone, especially a new therapist. Our job is to work at your speed. In my own practice, I've even asked clients to slow down. Prior to talking about abuse, you must develop trust and soothing/relaxation skills so you can continue to feel in control in session.
