Doubtful: Some people are either born with or without it. Although I am not aware of any studies, some men seem to be more prone. This explains why we ask their wives for directions and are reluctant to ask anybody for help. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Don't know what it is: I am not aware of any drug with that name. The only thing I can think of is vivitrol, which is an intramuscular form of naltrexone.

In the united states, are there any good examples of bringing patients via telehealth for medical assessments?
Yes: I work in telehealth part-time and there are several good but early & primitive capabilities out there.

Need a referral for a Dr. Who knows about FQ Toxicity Syndrome -- either in Las Vegas or via virtual consult.?

Partly because the push to use it is colored by biased reports (Most research in this country is paid for by industry), and the other is the fear of being sued if safer first choices fail. ...Read more

Unlikely but possibl: There are blood borne diseases that can be spread by anything with infected blood that penetrates your skin. There are a lot of studies that assess that risk, and solid needles are very unlikely to spread disease. It is still important to not expose yourself to that risk. Keep in mind that the pins would have to penetrate deep enough to draw blood to be infective. ...Read more
