My middle ear has been hurting a littie I feel little dizzy. My motor skills have been giving me issues what is the treatment?

My middle ear has been hurting a littie I feel little dizzy. My motor skills have been giving me issues what is the treatment?

Diagnosis: Treatment always follows an appropriate diagnosis. Middle ear infection can cause pain and hearing loss. Inner ear infection (usually viral) can cause vertigo. I do not believe that motor skills are cause by either middle or inner ear problems. You need a diagnosis by an ENT doctor before you can have logical therapy. ...Read more

Gran had stroke and can't use knife or hold coffee cup. Ot tested other skills and said she didn't need therapy. She wants to be indepndent. What to do?

Home OT and PT: If your grandmother can't use a knife or hold a coffee cup it is hard to believe she was cleared by ot, but insurance is trying to cut back on such services. I would request a repeat home ot evaluation (different therapist) but also work on techniques yourself. These can include a larger handle on utensils (best to buy them that way, but could also wrap with duct tape in a pinch). ...Read more

Menningitis ?: Unless menigitis causes a lot of swelling we usually don't see cognitive changes unless these is spread to the brain itself (encephalitis) the exceptions include brain injury form a sustained high fever or problems related to seizures. Your starting point is to discuss this with your neurologist. He might want to refer you to a cogntive specialist (eg, behavioral neurologist or neuropsychologist). ...Read more

Isotretinoin: Better late than never. Cystic acne won't be cleared by antibiotics. It's not for the faint-hearted but it's probably what you need. The internet is full of scare stories but the fast majority of folks with cystic acne are glad after they've done it. ...Read more
