Why Would Doc Say I Have The Worst Case Of Astigmatism She Has Ever Seen
Heavy handed: Asitgmatism is an ovalness of the optical parts of the eye which requires a reverse oval to correct in the eyeglasses or contacts used to correct it. It is common and in some cases can be quite extreme. Perhaps your doc is inexperienced, has not seen many cases and you are the worst. Or perhaps your doc is a little insensitive and overreacting to things. A second opinion can be helpful. ...Read more

I have continuous vertigo that has lasted already 2 yrs. Is there a treatment? I have had a negative mri. I see a neurologist who is telling me it was caused by a virus and at this point I have to focus on dealing with the symptoms. I was given anti-de
Vertigo: Is it really continuous 24/7 regardless of what you doing because there are few if any conditions other than medication side effects or anxiety that cause constant symptoms. Inner ear problems can start constant but improve over time and are absent when not moving and aggravated by movement. Need more info. Would also recommend ENT evaluation by neurootologist who specializes in ear disorders. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi, I am a nurse who has had symptoms of prinzmetal's angina for years. I saw a cardiologist in 1996 who told me "we see this sometimes but don't really know what it is." I let it go until it got worse this past year and visited another cardiologist. Symp
Vasospasm: It is a type of angina casused by spasm in the coronary arteries. Not exertional mediated. It occurs more at night. We treat this with Nitroglycerin or calcium blockers some time both. Unfortunately there is no real testing to prove that. I have detected this in a a couple of patients with holter monitoring while during symptoms at night they had ECG changes. Please let me know if any questions. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had a TIA and I was diagnosed with pfo. My doctor suggests me to close it he say its better die in an infarct than live with a stroke if it happens. Do you agree?
Depends: If you are young and relatively healthy then you should survive a surgical procedure. Anticoagulation may also be an option to prevent stroke. My best recommendation however is to get a second and perhaps third opinion first and then make up your mind. You may be surprised by the differences of opinon. Make sure that the hospital and doctor where the surgery is has a good rating. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
If you had lisch nodules around your eye would the dr tell you? I've had my eyes checked many times as an adult and nobody ever said I did.
I would tell you: I cannot answer for other doctors. I would tell you so that you might get genetic analysis. Lisch nodules are associated with the peripheral type of neurofibromatosis type-1. There is a chance of you being a carrier of an autosomal dominant form of it, so you should know prior to deciding to reproduce. ...Read more

Try this fact...: An older couple is more likely to divorce if the wife gets seriously ill, but not if the husband does, a new study finds. University of Michigan researchers looked at 20 years of data on 2717 marriages of couples age 50 and older.

If the person have paranoid shizofrenia and don't have any treatment get healthy again person was diagnosed with paranoid shizofrenia and did not have any tratment .Whatsoever was found to be in reamision . Is that posible .Did ever something like that ev
As : As dr. Bunt stated, the most obvious symptoms of schizophrenia may ebb and tide over time. Obviously, when a person has an episode of psychosis (loss of touch with reality), their symptoms have worsened. With appropriate treatment it is anticipated that the symptoms will improve. The schizophrenia may appear to be in remission, until they move toward another episode of psychosis. When a person is feeling better they might believe that they don't really have a mental health problem. They might decide to stop taking their psychiatric medications. If a person has been correctly diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia; it is likely that their condition will worsen over time if they do not receive treatment. With each episode of psychosis the person is likely to have a reduction in their cognitive (thinking) abilities. To be diagnosed with schizophrenia they need to have symptoms for at least six months. There are other mental health conditions which may present with symptoms that are similiar to those seen in schizophrenia. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Depends...: I assume you mean the incision sites from the biopsies. This pain usually disappears over the course of several months. Sometimes the nerves can get compressed by surgical instruments causing pain for a longer time. Rarely the pain lasts more of a long term (years). Given your situation, consultation with a pain specialist would be helpful. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
