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 (a clot . . . → 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.

Could sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim (generic for Bactrim) also be used to treat Chlamydia? I know it says that it will not treat virial infections…but since Chlamydia is a bacterial infection, would that work?

Bactrim is not effective at treating of chlamydia. Patients with chlamydia infections are treated with azithromycin, doxycycline, erythromycin, or ampicillin. Patients with chlamydia is often treated for gonorrhea with ceftriaxone or cefexime because of the high incidence of co-infection. Bactrim also does not treat gonorrhea.

This is a medical law question, if your doctor asks for a urine sample and he said you tested positive for illegal substances can he refuse to give you your normal prescriptions prescribed by him for pain?

Every physician is different but we have the obligation to “do no harm.” If your physician believes you are abusing drugs or narcotics, (s)he may elect to withhold future prescriptions of pain medication for your safety.

I fell down on friday and gauged my elbow. A small piece of meat was hanging and I cleaned it with peroxide adn neosporin. I broke it open tonight and clear bloody fluid drained out. I woke up two days ago with mod. to sev. pain in my forearm ext. I am wondering if this is from an infection and how severe it could get. I have no insurance and no money so going to the doctor would have to be damn near life and death.

From what you are describing, you could have an infection of the soft tissue; the severity of infection depends on your immune system and the type of bacteria. With increasing bacterial resistance, neosporin is less and less effective at treating local wound infections.

Soft tissue infections range from cellulitis to necrotizing fasciitis. Signs of . . . → Read More: I fell down on friday and gauged my elbow.

I am a 23 year old female and was recently diagnosed with GERD and diffuse esophageal spasm after having an x-ray, barium swallow, schazki ring removal and balloon stent, endoscopy, and an esophageal manometry. I am now on medication for the esophageal spasms that lower my blood pressure but my blood pressure is low from genetics. Sometimes I get very dizzy and it has gotten to the point that I don’t feel comfortable driving. From my research and speaking to relatives in the medical field, being hospitalized and speaking to the hospital doctors, and meeting with my gastroenterologist, it seems that this might be the best case scenario, and that it might never get better. I have read about antidepressants helping rather than heart pressure medication, but my doctor said he doesn’t think it would help and if the heart medication is helping the spasms that I should stick with it. I’d like a second opinion.

It appears you are suffering from diffuse esophageal spasms but also have low blood pressure. Calcium channel blocks and nitrates (both heart medications) have been proven to effectively decrease the amplitude of diffuse esophageal spasms. These medications are generally well tolerated but may lower the blood pressure of patients. Unfortunately, it appears that you have . . . → Read More: I am a 23 year old female and was recently diagnosed with GERD and diffuse esophageal spasm after having an x-ray, barium swallow, schazki ring removal and balloon stent, endoscopy, and an esophageal manometry.
