How severe is an albumin of 5.4?  Please describe severity of symptoms?  Crippling fatigue, pulsating symptoms, severe headaches, eye pain, nausea?

None of the above: I hope it doesn't disappoint you greatly to let you know that your Albumin levels are considered quite within the normal range. Of course, lab values do vary from one laboratory to another therefore, it would be best to find out the normal range in the laboratory you had the blood drawn or tested but for all intents and purposes the range of normal for Albumin is taken to be 3.5 to 5.5. ...Read more

Type of this headache: very intense non-pulsating pain in back of 1 eye, but not red eye, sudden onset, 20 min. later sudden relief, several a day?

Any eye pain: could be an indication of a severe emergency. You need to have your eye pressure checked for glaucoma, which can be done in between such episodes. It would be very helpful to have it done with an episode, but if it is glaucoma, probably the pressure is up all the time and the pain is when it gets dangerously high. So don't delay, please. Good luck! ...Read more

Seroquel (quetiapine) makes my un-dx condition worse. Symptoms are heart pain, almost paralyzed due to extreme somnolence, severe cognitive impairment.. Causes?

Seroquel (quetiapine): Seroquel (quetiapine) can be very sedating -- more so depending on increased dose. It can also cause "cognitive impairment." I have no idea from here what you were like before the medication, but it sounds like you need a thorough medical evaluation. A psychiatrist may need to also be involved in your care -- and you need to tell whoever is prescribing the seroquel (quetiapine) about what you're experiencing. ...Read more

I suffer from myopic astigmatism since borned. I also had operated strabismus. My dioptries haven't changed since 2009! Is ths a good sign? :)

I suffer from myopic astigmatism since borned. I also had operated strabismus. My dioptries haven't changed since 2009! Is ths a good sign? :)

Sounds good: I am hoping that your treatment when an infant and child kept the vision good in both eyes and even better, that you can use the eyes together? The diopters are less important than whether you have good vision in both eyes. Myopia tends to increase a little into the low to mid 20s and then it stops. You may have some small changes the next several years but these can be corrected. ...Read more
