  • Hello all,

    My story is quite lengthy so I will try and keep it brief. When I was 15, I blew a pupil and of course, doctors panicked. I had a CT scan which "showed something" and was sent for an MRI. The MRI came back as saying I had low-lying cerebellum and my family doctor waved it off, so I forgot about it. After many more tests and doctors, the pupil was later diagnosed as Adie's tonic pupil, even though my reflexes are still intact.

    Now nearly 6 years later,

    Hello...I am a 36 year old who has been having strange health problems for the last 6 years. My symptoms are severe headaches, balance problems, slurred speech and trouble saying what I am thinking, trouble swallowing, loss of motor skills in hands, muscle weakness throughout body, drooping eyelid, blurry vision, dilated pupils, eye sensitivity, sensitive to loud and to many sounds at once, joint pain, muscle pain, sensation of someone digging their elbow in between my shoulder blades on my spi

    I am new here and have been searching for more information regarding recovery after surgery.

    My story: I had mild headaches with an occasional "big" one for several years but in July '06 they blew up. They became intense daily with very severe headaches every couple weeks. The daily ha intensified to the point that I couldn't handle any noise, movement made it worse and of course light sensitivity increased. After several doctors treated me with no results

    I am, as mentioned, a total nerd, and when I got a strange notation on the bottom of my MRI results (“Tonsillar Ectopia with Cerebellar tonsils extending between 3mm and 4 mm below the foramen magnum” to which my doctor said was nothing to worry about), I set out to learn what it meant. I was the one

  • Hey guys. My name is Melissa and I'm 22. I was diagnosed with having a chiari malformation type one of 10mm in February of last year when I had a cyst decompression surgery related to an arachnoid cyst I have. My doctor told me that if I never had any symptoms, we wouldn't have to do anything with the chiari. Well, around January, I started getting more frequent headaches at the base of my skull. I didn't really think much about it. Since then however, they've only gotten worse. Now I'm in

    Thalidomide May Relieve Rare Pain Disorder: Report
    By Merritt McKinney

    NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - In a chance discovery, doctors at the Mayo Clinic have found that thalidomide--a drug banned in the 1960s for causing severe birth defects--may be an effective treatment for a mysterious form of disabling nerve pain.

    There are many different ‘liver enzymes’ that a doctor looks at when evaluating a liver function panel (AKA liver function tests). In fact, the liver function panel is not limited to enzymes, it also measures the levels of total protein, albumin, bilirubin, and other molecules that are all produced by the liver and dispersed throughout the body by the blood.

    When examining the results of the liver function tests, the total protein and albumin levels w

  • Hi guys,
    My purpose in writing today is to address what I think is a good question: Is there a vast conspiracy of pharmaceutical companies who are bribing doctors to prescribe their drugs? If not, why do so many people believe there is?

    Here's what I think. A couple of recent articles have shown that research funded by pharmaceutical companies is often flawed and biased towards favorable results (i.e., results showing the funded drugs work the way they're supposed to). Also

  • I always assumed that physicians were commonly called doctors because they were the most commonly encountered higher-degree holders in most people's experience. (Especially in pre-modern and medieval society where few people outside of clergy were univeristy-educated.) But of course, the basic medical degree in the UK is a bachelor's degree, not a doctorate.

    I know that the American MD and the British MBBS are entirely equivalent and the difference in terminology is merely accidental.

    3 years ago

    During one of my visits, my dentist looked over my x-rays and mentioned that the portion of the nasal cavity showing was, to use his word, "crusty" and that I should let my doctor know. Similarly, when I had my wisdom teeth out, the guy said he'd had the same problem, had had it "cleaned out" by a nose doctor, and now he breathes and sleeps much better. So I did mention to my doctor that my dentist said I had "crusty" nasal passages. He replied that "We only

    I thought I would post an update, as I know there are many of us on the "Do I Have ALS" section of the boards who share similar symptoms that perplex our doctors (and ourselves!) and it's nice to try to help each other in our quest for answers.
