kufreabasi. always best to seek medical opinion before you start giving anyone over the counter medicine. i suggest your wife gets medical attention

33117. Ignore adetunrayo. As you must work out now, you have a 25% chance of having a normal child, 25% of having a sickle child and 50% of having a carrier. In these days of prenatal diagnosis, there are more options. Seek genetic counselling

ceasyc, i suggest you pose your question to dr kathy on the obgyn site here. She is very good at advice for your cousin's problem.
Kefuie, not sure who you are!!!!

Brite02, generally the body tends to get rid of excess vitamin C in the system. Always best to keep things in moderation however by eating well. Double supplements does not make you doubly well.

Jeram, you can't make a bone heal any faster than nature lets it. healing depends on a few factors though and which bone has broken. good blood supply, good nutrition help the healing process

ruhu, if he can afford it, I will suggest a ct scan of the head to exclude any pathology that is treatable or serious. If that is negative then you can put it down as migraine. That is my practice here. If you are in Nigeria and if too costly then, diagnosis has to be fully clinical. There are several specific anti migraine medication that local neurologist can offer

ruhu, how old is your friend. the headaches this person is getting, is it something new. As a general rule, my practice is to rule out any treatable cause for headaches before I label it migraine. Dehydration is a common cause of headaches for example. With saying that, there are lots of tablets designed for migraine specifically

uglybetty, believe it or not if you read surgeon's replies you will see that queries get answered. The other thing you need to appreciate is we do this in our spare time for FREE!!!! Us docs here have other paying jobs that we attend to seriously
If you are patient one of us will get to your query

Good job you are doing surgeon
Unfortunately my commitment with teaching and clinical work means just guest appearance for me

I will try and make sense of all these comments now. Arnold Chiari type I is indeed a congenital disorder of a part of the brain. It usually is diagnosed incidentally due to occasional symptoms. Its not something that people die from at a specific time. So giving this lady a certain number of weeks to live is rubbish. People have this and don't even know they have it and live fruitful lives. It presents as headaches and neck pain with coughing, sneezing and sometimes going to the toilet. Only a few people require surgery for this. If this woman has had countless MRI Scans and previous surgery, the neurosurgeon would have cured her symptoms by now. There seems to be a lot of hysteria surrounding this on this thread. Unless you hear from the neurosurgeons asking for funds to help further surgery abroad I would be sceptical. There is a perfectly good neurosurgeon in Abuja who was chief in America

drbigdaddyg, I am going to assume the immunocal is not for you. I have just check on the internet about immunocal. It is mainly a glutathione supplement. Problems with over the counter medication is that they can interfere with the pharmacodynamics of any type of drug. Depends on how they get broken down with what is called the cytochrome system. Depends really on the chemotherapy drug that is being taken and whether its breakdown is on same CYP450

Kurat, the internet offers all sorts of things. I am unsure what this herbal remedy is but one thing for certain it will make the sellers very rich!!!

Annual medical check ups depends on whether male or female. It also depends on your family circumstances. If a lot of your family have suffered from a certain disease important to have that checked up early and regularly. General check up starts about age 50. Black men are prone to prostate cancer so important to get that checked regularly. Hypertension common amongst nigerians so worth while getting your blood pressure checked. Check your family history and keep everything in moderation

just a little note. those with gynaecological problems are better served by Dr Kathyekiti. If there is no sex against your name and you have a discharge from your privates, I cannot work out whether you are male or female. My skills haven't achieved the telepathic levels yet!!!
Health / Re: Doctor in the House: Free Medical Advice Available by Balogun(m): 7:32pm On Jul 14, 2010
kemi22, Dr Kathyekiti on our sister thread is best answering your question
Health / Re: Doctor in the House: Free Medical Advice Available by Balogun(m): 7:31pm On Jul 14, 2010
dereformer, the answer to your question is NO!!!!
Health / Re: Doctor in the House: Free Medical Advice Available by Balogun(m): 7:30pm On Jul 14, 2010
omnislife, probably best to keep your advice to yourself on this thread.
Health / Re: Doctor in the House: Free Medical Advice Available by Balogun(m): 7:28pm On Jul 14, 2010
Jarus, may I intervene quickly here. Ignore omnislife comments. Appendicitis is an acute condition. Not something that goes on for 4 months. Ignore the colon cancer thing as well. First thing is how old are you. Do you have problems with passing urine if the pain goes to your back. You can easily be describing kidney problems like a stone. Have you had a urinalysis done. This is where they test your urine for proteins, blood and nitrates

petraB and kechai, yours are gynae problems. Dr Kathy usually deals with them. I have noticed she has replied quite a few recently.
kechai, pregnancies usually happen during your fertle period. after day 10 of your cycle. note i said usually!!! no side effects of having sex during your periods

uteh, your answer is in your question. There probably is an allergen in your house. Explains why things dry up when you leave home. Dust mites are commonest cause. Found usually in beds and carpets. Do you have carpets and what is it made from

Guys, I have said this many times in this thread. Sex is a two way affair!!! If you suffer premature ejaculation, you need to sit down with your partner (wife, girlfriend etc) and discuss it. You tell her when you are getting too excited so she slows down and maybe you can fulfil her needs by other ways apart from penetration. You need to make time for it. Not when you are tired or she is tired. If you have children, get a relative to have them for the night. Do the whole romance thing and take your time. Switch off phones (unless it doubles up as vibrator!!!) grin. Talk about it first before looking for medicines to cure. Also lasting long doesn't mean your woman is enjoying it. If she is dry down there it might be painful for her if you are there for 15-20minutes. Sex is not all about penetration and ejaculating. Remember its a two way thing
No more on this subject now

where is your staph infection. and don't tell me its in your sperm. that is just contamination
Health / Re: Doctor in the House: Free Medical Advice Available by Balogun(m): 11:30pm On Jun 18, 2010
Aladunni, important to exclude easily treatable causes like kidney infection. Questions your doctor will ask is if you have any history of trauma or fall. Previous back problem. Have you been lifting anything heavy or begun exercises recently. Most of the time it is sprain to ligaments or muscles in the back

suppose any chronic infection within the ENT spheres could contribute to this. That a good dentist or maxillofacial surgeon should diagnose
