I have a husband disabled from stroke, and a son who has seizures that started when he was 18, and i was told by a doctor that has seen both husband and sun I was the cause. Is this possible? What can i do about it?

From your question, there does not appear to be any medical condition that points to one person as the cause of both seizures and strokes. Seizures can be caused by genetics, intracranial masses, drugs/alcohol/medications, fevers/infections, injuries, or metabolic disorders. Strokes are either ischemic or hemorrhagic. Ischemic strokes are caused by either embolic events . . . → Read More: I have a husband disabled from stroke, and a son who has seizures that started when he was 18, and i was told by a doctor that has seen both husband and sun I was the cause.

I’ve been having headaches/migraines for about 10 years(26 years old now). The frequency of them vary from anywhere between once every few months to twice a week. I’ve gone to several doctors and neurologists and have tried all sorts of migraine medications with not much success. I have not had any tests run such as an MRI or CATSCAN. I have kept a journal to try to find what may trigger these: food, lack of sleep, stress, caffeine, menstral cycle, etc. I have noticed that the symptoms are almost always the same. I normally wake up with them. I have no sensitivity to light, however I’m very sensitive to sound. The pain is always in my left eye brow, my left eye, behind my left eye, and bone of my left eye socket, and the top of both the bottom and top of my teeth (only on my left side). I also get nauseaus and vomit with them. I am planning on going to a dentist now because I am thinking now that it may be TMJ. I have been diagnosed with PCOS and anovulation. At first I thought it may be related to hormonal imbalances. Any suggestions I would greatly appreciate.

Your symptoms are indeed consistent with migraines even without sensitivity to light. Keeping a journal of triggers/activities is an excellent way to determine the cause of your migraines. A CT scan may not be helpful but if your physician suspects an intracranial lesion, an MRI may be the best test.

I recently had a bilateral vasectomy. I was put under for the procedure. Since the procedure I have experienced a numb sensation in my right leg from the thigh to my calf. It feels as if part of my leg is asleep, and will not wake up no matter what position I am in. I am not on any medication, and have had no other side effects from the procedure. What could be causing this numb feeling in my leg?

There are a number of factors that could be contributing to the numbness on your leg. It is rare for anesthesia to cause the isolated unilateral numbness you are describing. Your symptoms appear to be more consistent with nerve damage either from the your positioning on the operating table, the vasectomy itself, or some . . . → Read More: I recently had a bilateral vasectomy.

My mom taking polynerve 1000mg. I’m not so sure this medication.I believe it has contains of Vitamin B1 and B6. My mom been taking this medication without the doctor prescription. My question is that safe or good for her taking that medication? What are the side effects? Is that over the counter medication? She said, she likes that medication because it has a little improvements on her legs.She said she feel like more stronger and she could feel it more when you touch it. I’m just afraid if it is really good for her or not. I don’t know really about it. That’s the only medication she been taking. Thank you very much!

One of the children I’m (female, 18) babysitting (male, 11 years) flipped and hit his head on the street. He couldn’t stand at first and I literally had to hold him up and carry him so he could lay in the car. He eventually was able to stumble to the house and put ice on his head. It’s been awhile and he still has to hold onto things to walk. He says his getting worse but the nausea he was feeling is a hit better but is still there. Only one pupil dilates when light is flashed in eyes. Does this means he has a concussion and if so what should I do?

Anyone with suspected intracranial trauma should be taken to the hospital immediately. The injury to the child you are babysitting qualifies as intracranial trauma. The injury is serious because of his inability to stand at first. In addition, the symptom of only one pupil dilating is suggestive of far more than intracranial trauma . . . → Read More: One of the children I’m (female, 18) babysitting (male, 11 years) flipped and hit his head on the street.
