748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.

Avatar n tn I can tolerate mylanta if it is mixed with lidocaine and bentyl for spasms but I dont think he wants me using the lidocaine or bentyl right now...It is worse in the mornings and I am not eating anything and havent for three days..Just water and ensure and vanilla pudding....This morning I had to drive 100 miles for work and got so sick to my stomach. Coming home wasnt an option at 100 miles away..Only way to get here was to drive it....
Avatar n tn I was given a horse pill sized valium and a topical anesthetic for the mammogram and wire insertion and had demerol IV for the surgical biopsy. I was at the hospital by 7AM and on my way home without any need for pain medication at 11AM, more than I can say for any tooth extraction. The biggest difference for the mammogram part is I got to sit in a comfy chair. I was lucky in that the Radiologist got it on the first try too, at least that is what I ***remember***.
Avatar m tn One other thing to consider is cost. Most insurance does not pay for the IV medications but do for orals. I have to say I have improved greatly on orals. It just depends on the person. I know from Lymie friends there are some LLMD that just do IV no matter what.
Avatar n tn ) She wouldn't insert unless I was ON my period (to make sure I wasn't pregnant, but also because your uterus and cervix are more relaxed = easier insertion 3.) She had me take iron pills for a month prior to insertion (I'm slightly anemic and they won't insert unless your RBC's are high enough, plus it helped with the heavier flow I was supposed to expect) Like I said, I'm happy thus far with my paragard.
Avatar n tn They did give a shot of lidocaine to the area first) I had IV meds to make me sleep, I think they call it twilight sleep. You are asleep but not as deep as general anesthetic. After the biopsy there was some bruising and some pain. I think I was prescribed Tylenol 3 for pain and didn't use it all. I was sore for a couple of weeks but then it depends on you activity level too. I overdid and paid for it with more pain. Its not as scary as it sounds. Try to stay calm.
Avatar f tn The procedure is much easier than the EP study. They give you IV antibiotics before, during and after and kept me for about 5 hours afterwards for observation. I had a pain killer perscription that we got filled on the way home, by the next morning I called in for something stronger. I only took pain meds for about 4.5 days, and mostly because I have a large chest and my breast put pressure on the implant and pushed it into nerves. It is uncomfortable, and took about 6 weeks to heal.
Avatar n tn Although ureteral stenting is undoubtedly an important procedure for the release of ureteral obstruction, the indications for stent insertion should be carefully considered in each patient. A stent can remain inside the ureter for about 3 months. In case the patient has severe bleeding or dispositioned stent or recurrent infections then change of stent or removal of stent can be considered.
Avatar m tn They did have a guy at about 45 minutes in hook up the base stuff for an IV but no IV. YES I DID COMPLAIN. So after 4 hours of non treatment I called a cab. the on call Doc called me on the phone in my room basically to say I was leaving AMA, I said, what AMA I haven't been treated in 6 hours. Cost me 105 to go about 45 miles, one way. I stayed home just long enough to sober up from the pain pills I was lucky enough to have brought with me when I had first seen the doctor.
Avatar n tn hi guys, i posted earlier about terrible pain during ablation, see below, thanks for your replies unfortunately i was up for procedure and now i can't stop thinkin about everything....about 3 hrs of radiation from the xray machine, only the surgeon was all scrubbed up...others in room watching, etc, i sooo didn't want to remember anything and now i can't stop thinking about it anyone else think same way??
Avatar n tn After x-ray and CT, negative for perforation, they gave me another IV dose of versed and sent me home with a prescripton for Percocet. My doc says he has never heard of such a thing. He said maybe he dilated me too much, or possibly scraped or gauged my esophagus. Regardless, he hopes that time will see it disipate. Until then, it's minimal eating or drinking due to the pain, and disolving pain meds in my mouth every 3-4 hours.
Avatar n tn I have had left knee problems for at least 4 years now. Dr. has given me quite a few injections into the knee. Now he is suggesting Synvisc injections. This is injected once a week for three weeks and is supposed to provide up to 6 months of knee pain relief. I was wondering if anyone has had this treatment and if there are any side effects from it? And does it really work and last as long as they claim?????

Avatar m tn or the Hospital forgot to give me a script for bladder and kidney spasms. I got that script filled hoping for relief. NOTHING!!!!! I wanted to return to work on Monday (today) but I could not bare the pain. I also have an 8 month old that I have not been able to take care of due to the pain. I called the Dr's office again today and they said "ohhh the Dr is gone for the day so there's nothing we can do.
Avatar n tn But, good news for me is that I am a lawyer...right here in the New York City where they are. Too bad for them. They have been accused of taking bad claims that women have left concerning the bad,horrific reactions they have had off the message boards....they get their on employees to post good messgaes on the same sites.

Avatar n tn History of my problem: For as long as I can remember, I have had a problem with my hyoid bone popping out and causing excrutiating pain. It is always the same - the right side of my neck. At about the age of 8 I talked to my pediatrician about it and he promptly told me it was not possible. That I was having anything "pop out" in my neck. He contended that there wasn't anything there that could pop out. So I just continued to push it back into place whenever it popped out.
Avatar n tn For the last 6 months I have been getting tearing (look like paper cuts) in my vaginal area (1/4 to 1/2 inch long). I get the tears at least once or twice a week and they last from 2-4 days, go away for a few days and then come back. They continue to occur in the same locations; 1. Inside the vaginal lips on the sides almost always in the crease (between the labia minora and majora?) 2. Between the anus and vaginal opening (perineum) 3. Above the clitoris in the "hood" area.
Avatar f tn Blood tests suggest autoimmune disfunction (positive ana, antithyroid antibodies, high IgG for parvovirus and EBV and CMV without being conclusive of connective tissue or thyroid disease. A cone beam ct scan revealed an inflammatory process in the sinus above the implant and apical periodontal inflammation on the tooth behind the implant which was also giving me night fevers. I have since had the root canal retreated on the tooth that was being blamed for my mouth discomfort.
Avatar n tn I had surgery done on my broken pinky finger on January 1, 2008, which I broke while playing football, and I was in the cast for 6 weeks after that. After the cast came out, the doctor told me to go to therapy for 6 weeks/ 2 times a week to get rid of the stiffness in the finger. Now it is May 5th, 2008 and I have 2 more weeks of therapy left but still the finger is a little stiff. I can bend it but not fully and in terms of going back up it doesn't move at all.
