What happens if your diaphragm is half paralyzed? Does it mean that you cannot breathe on your own?

What happens if your diaphragm is half paralyzed? Does it mean that you cannot breathe on your own?

Difficulty breathing: Although the diaphragm is one organ, both sides act almost independently, but they need each other for perfect breathing. A nerve on each side of the heart makes the diaphragm move. If that nerve is injured, that particular side of the diaphragm is paralyzed, making breathing difficult. This may be fixed by a surgery called diaphragm plication, performed by a thoracic surgeon.

If i test false positive for ELISA HIV does it mean I have an autoimmune disease? If I do have one will i be paralyzed or die earlier?

If i test false positive for ELISA HIV does it mean I have an autoimmune disease? If I do have one will i be paralyzed or die earlier?

HIV: There are numerous reasons for "false +" testing. Without a good deal of more info it is difficult to advise you, including why you were being HIV tested if no unprotected sex. Other risk factors? Suggest you see a pcp, have them thoroughly evaluate you and refer you on if necessary. Good luck.

I think I have palinopsia and scared to death it means a brain tumor. I'm seeing a neurologist on monday but i'm paralyzed with fear. I need a scan!

I think I have palinopsia and scared to death it means a brain tumor. I'm seeing a neurologist on monday but i'm paralyzed with fear. I need a scan!

Not so simple: Neither you nor your doctors can diagnose brain tumor so easily. I actually do not even know the meaning of this word...Palinopsia. So just calm down. Unless you have a serious neurological symptom like a seizure or loss of neuro function like paralysis, you can not be too concerned about having a brian tumor. I hope this will help you get through this next few days before you see your neurologis.
