Consider MRI if your x-rays and CT scans were normal you probably do not have anything serious. You might want to consider an MRI as it is more sensitive to a disc herniation.: If your ct scan and x-rays are normal you probably do not have anything significant. You might want to consider an MRI of your cervical spine as it is more sensitive to disk herniation could be pressing on nerve roots. Most likely that test would be normal as well. Massage therapy and physical therapy may be what you need to get back your strength and feeling of well-being. ...Read more

What is the problem with hyporeflexia and hypotonis (weakness)? What treatment would be recommended?

"Treatment"?: That's like asking your mechanic how to fix your car running rough. He'd say, Have to find out WHY it's running rough first. You can't get "treatment" if you skip the entire step of diagnosis. HypotoniA & hyporeflexia are signs, not diagnoses. Who has them? What age? This sounds to me a lot like a question about a baby. You've actually provided NO history. Please repost. ...Read more

Hello sir iam 18 yrs old and iam suffering from masturbation. I feel body weakness and erections are weak tell me treatment?

Erectile dysfunction: Erectile dysfunction in an 18-year old is not normal. Were you previously able to achieve adequate erections? I'd start by seeing your regular doctor so that some basic labwork can be done to rule out hormone imbalances, diabetes, hypothyroidism, etc. If all of that turns out to be normal, and any psychiatric issues are not present, then possibly e.D. Medications would be helpful. See ur dr. ...Read more

One : One of the ways to get correct information from a computer is to have the correct (input) information in the computer. In medicine is the same, you need precise data to make the adecuate diagnosis. I don t mean to under estimate you impression of how you hands look or how they feel and I don t mean to under estimate your diagnosis of aquiles tendinitis or others, but in order to make the right diagnosis in rheumatology you need to have an appropiate history and physical exam, these two features give you a very good hint of the diagnosis, that could then be confiorm by blood test or x rays etc.... Rheumatoid arthrtis is not always rheumatoid factor positive and there are 140 varieties of rheumatic diseases. I believe you need a rheumatologist to evaluate you and try to define what your ailments are to get the propper diagnosis and the propper therapy. ...Read more

Natural treatment for weakness and congestion due to cold in elderly person. Also, is Mucinex (guaifenesin) safe for high blood pressure.?

Mucinex (guaifenesin) safe: One must first be certain the "congestion" is not due to something serious such as congestive heart failure or pneumonia. If it's not, then oral fluids, especially hot liquids, humidifier or hot, steamy shower, and citrus fruits can help.
