I received cortisone shots in my scalp for the purpose of hair growth but the shot left me with hyper pigmentation?

I received cortisone shots in my scalp for the purpose of hair growth but the shot left me with hyper pigmentation. Each area that the shot was applied has a white spot in the area making it visible where I received each shot. No hair has grown in those areas at all. I received the shot January 31, 2017. Today is May 16, 2017 and I have yet to see any improvement. Is there anything I can do to reverse what looks like blotch white spots on my scalp? It’s very noticeable because the spots are so much lighter than my regular complexion



I think my urologist did a poor job with my circumcision?

I am a 70 year old man and I was circumcised about two years ago. I think my urologist did a poor job. Since the surgery I have had constant itching around the head of my penis. The itching is s bad that I can bear the pain caused by rubbing it raw more than I can bear the itching. My MD prescribed a steroidal cream that I used for about a year but that didn’t really help ether. I use Vaseline intensive care but it really doesn’t help. I moved and no longer have a doctor available. Is there anything I can do to stop this unbearable itching?



Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes I believe not been monitored by doctor closely enough?

Hello. My name is (…). My boyfriend is 25 years old. He has recently been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, about 5 months ago. Lately, he has been having slight chest pain, no energy at all, and dizzy spells very often. His current doctor said it is because his body is still adjusting to the insulin….but does it really take the body this long to adjust to insulin? I don’t think he should be having chest pain and dizzy spells. He says he feels “weird”. His current doctor is booked until July. We are thinking of going to emergency room, but I would like an answer from here first. His doctor also said he is in the “honeymoon” stage of diabetes. I believe he has not been monitored by his doctor closely enough.



I have been evaluated by a neurologist but my rheumatologist is questioning my symptoms, need second opinion?

Hello,
23 yo F.
I have been evaluated by a neurologist (these are their findings and am waiting for the specialist, which is awhile out) but my rheumatologist is questioning my symptoms:
– DEEP TENDON REFLEXES: 1 biceps, 1 triceps, 0 knees, and 0 ankles.
– COORDINATION: There is no dysmetria with finger-nose-finger maneuver or heel-knee-shin maneuver
-MUSCULOSKELETAL: Immediately noted is the appearance of diminished intrinsic hand muscle bulk. When she is asked to extend her fingers, fingers are extended at the MCP joints but flexed at the PIP joints. No, I do not have arthritis or swelling. No clubbing.
-Left extensor hallucis 3/5, Right 4/5.

I’m now finding that I actually cannot lift my toe from the ground for more than a tremor of a quick second.

I contracted a spinal infection and 3 operations later I have been left with a damaged spine?

Hi

I recently had a small back operation to treat a prolapsed disc. During the operation I contracted a spinal infection and 3 operations later I have been left with a damaged spine at the L4/5 level.

The pain in my spine is chronic and I also suffer from severe referred pain.

As a result I have been prescribed a range of pain killers including 80mg of Oxycodone daily, 300mg of Pregabalin daily, 40mg of Paroxetine daily and 20mg of Oxynorm as required.

My questions are: ‘Would this be considered an appropriate level of pain medication for my condition and what long-term side effects should I expect?

I was given an IV incorrectly in the ER which gave me superficial thrombophlebitis?

I am 33 years old female. To start, for the past week and a half I have had a pre-existing vein injury. I was given an IV incorrectly in the ER which gave me superficial thrombophlebitis. My hand and forearm on the right side were affected. I was almost healed when today I smashed my right thumb by accident. After smashing it the pad of my right thumb turned purple and my hand begin to tingle, traveling up my right forearm. I immediately ran it under warm water and elevated above heart level like instructed when I first got the vein injury. I am concerned that since I had a pre-existing vein injury that smashing my thumb could have caused complications in my nerves. I do have some swelling in the whole right hand again now, mostly In the thumb. But the tingling is traveling through my whole hand and forearm. I was looking for insight as to whether or not I should continue to care for it as I did when I first got the vein injury by applying heat and keeping it elevated or if I should see my doctor as soon as possible. I have attached photos



Diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Depression trying to stop medication?

Hi, i’m a 18 years old male, was diagnosed with OCD and Depression when i was 13 and the doctor perscribed me Luvox. I took it for three and a half years without medical observations, i used to overdose. Once i took 700 mg. There are stressful days where i took 400mg. Anyway, this last year i revisited a doctor and he helped me stop taking it, and put me on Venlafaxine and Valdoxan instead. I’ve been experiencing headaches and lack of concentration over the past two years “while taking Luvox” and now on Venlafaxine aka Effoxor. I’ve been experiencing an extreme lack of concentration i used to do math much quicker and now i stutter at the simplest things, i forget more than often, i have headaches almost daily where certain parts of my head feels off. I was wondering if my overdosing on Luvox years ago could be a reason for this damage and is it permenant?, or is it common? I was wrong i know. But i was in a bad state. I appreciate the help i’d get.
