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.

My mom have always constipation maybe because she always in the wheelchair all the time. Is it okay for her to take a Metamucil capsule everyday? What does it really do to her since she always in the wheelchair? Is there any good vitamins for her too?

Metamucil is a combination laxative and fiber supplement available over the counter. Patients who are deficient in fiber could benefit from metamucil but excess fiber can inhibit absorption of medications and nutrients.

Other alternatives for constipation include docusate sodium (available in a variety of brand names) and senna glycosides. These are stool softeners and laxatives . . . → Read More: My mom have always constipation maybe because she always in the wheelchair all the time.

I am a 50 years old and had a total hysterectomy 4 1/2 years ago. I have never been on replacement hormones, due to a tia 6 months after my total hysterectomy. I have recently been dx with high choletrol 319 and a low Vit D level. I am taking Vit D 50,000UI 2x week, and a daily med for cholestrol. I suffer from What I call Hot Flashes everyday. This has been going on for along time (years) I get a sick feeling in my stomache, my vision gets slightly blurred, my heart pounds rapidly,and I sweat terribly. My question is- How many is normal? Yesterday I journaled them-I had 8 during the day and 4 during the night. Yesterday was actually a good day? Thank you for your help.

Hot flashes occur in over 75% of all menopausal women lasting anywhere for a few months to over a decade. The onset, duration, and frequency of hot flashes vary from woman to woman so there is no fixed number of hot flashes per day that is considered “normal.”

Hot flashes can be triggered by environmental . . . → Read More: I am a 50 years old and had a total hysterectomy 4 1/2 years ago.

My son is 7. He has encopresis (his accidents have slowed to about once a week now). He falls a lot, clumsy, runs into objects like curbs or shelves at a store. His falling is a daily occurrence. He fell last night and fell three more times when trying to get off of the ground. I had to physically help him up. He is extremely sensitive to noise, as a baby he would cover his ears and cry if there was a loud noise. He has normal hearing according to the ENT doctors here. He tells me that the “fast cars” distract him at school (he can hear the cars going down the street outside of his school). If he gets close to my mouth or nose he will tell me that I am breathing loudly. He tells his friends to get out of his face or covers his ears because they are “giving him a headache” or just too loud. He has problems putting his feelings/thoughts into words. A lot of times we are left trying to interpret what he says or asking him questions trying to figure out what’s going on with him….for instance he was hit at school once and came home with a black eye. He told me one story, told his teacher a different story and told his sister another. We still don’t know who hit him but he knew that he was hit and that it wasn’t from falling. He gets upset and cries over strange things like being told to go to the bathroom before we leave for the park. He gets frustrated when things aren’t going right. He is easily fatigued. He is on the lazy side, his arms and legs are “floppy” if you carry him he doesn’t hold on he just hangs. He is constantly moving or fidgeting. He makes good grades in school but he has to be constantly told to do his work. I find myself trying to get his attention a lot, especially when we are in the car and I cannot be close to him or turn around and look at him. We are being sent for a neurological evaluation but I am curious what these symptoms are indicative of??

Your son appears to have multiple neurologic symptoms that suggest either a neurologic disorder, an endocrine disorder, or a metabolic disorder. Your son’s symptoms are too vague to narrow down into a specific diagnosis without proper medical workup. That he has these symptoms at a young age is suggestive of a genetic syndrome. . . . → Read More: My son is 7. He has encopresis (his accidents have slowed to about once a week now).

It is not uncommon for those suffering from Crohn’s Disease, like yourself, to have dermatological manifestations of the disease. The skin lesions you are describing could be directly related to the Crohn’s Disease but it can also be secondary to a vitamin deficiency secondary to malabsorption.
