Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Can dengue feve cause hearing loss?
In Nov 2007 I contracted Dungue and sometime inn 2008 I lost my (L)hearing, just wanted to know if the 2 are linked.
- Does acetazolamide help with intra nasal ketamine controlling your pain longer? (1 answer)
Thinking of having Ketamine infusion to reboot my Central Nervous System. I have been taking it in liquid form & nasally for the last year. Some relief but doesn't last! If I don't have RSD can it do me more harm than good??? Thank you for helping end the pain, I hope.
- When will fluid in ear from ear infection go away? (1 answer)
Twelve days ago I my left ear suddenly started hurting, and stared to sound like my ear was under water. Pain, and pressure in both ears continued to get worse for 8 days before I saw a doctor who diagnosed infection in both ears and prescribed me amoxicillin, 500mg 3x a day.
I have taken the antibiotic on time every time for 4 full days and pain and pressure have only decreased a small amount and my hearing has not returned to normal, and seems to be affecting both ears although only the left sounds under water.
When might the fluid finally drain and my hearing return to normal? Or, when should I contact my doctor about symptoms barely improving? I have never had such a slow reaction to antibiotics, but I have also never had an ear infection even as a child.
I did try a couple home remedies to drain or dry the fluid days ago. Sweet oil just temporarily added pressure and an alcohol/vinegar mix just caused more discomfort. I am starting to become concerned about permanent damage to my hearing since the problem started almost 2 weeks ago.
- If your daughter had 3.6mm fibroadenoma would you have it removed?
My daughter is 27 yrs. old on a 2 yr old level. She is on Depo Provera inj. to "stop" that time of month due to the seizures that are promoted from the hormone changes. When she was 16 yrs. old she had a 5 lumps in her breast and we thought that the injection was a problem. We took a "holiday" from the med for several yrs. without incident. We then reintroduced the med. due to szr. activity increased immensely. Now we sit with a 3 inch mass in her breast. It has 3 sections in it. When the med is due it increases in size as though it is searching for the "drug". Med given it goes down to 2 1/2 in.
She can't tell me it hurts but she moans and I have seen her laying there with hand on breast like it may cause some issue.
Help me decide what to do....Mom at wits end and very worried about what to do?
- Is there the correlation of hearing loss with use of escitalopram 20 mg
My 18 year old son has just been found to have mild to moderate hearing loss in both ears. Could it be caused by a Rx and will his hearing return if he stops taking the medication???

As a young girl I was put on Isoniazid, I didn't put 2 and 2 together but after taking the inh I started loosing my hearing to the point I'm completely deaf in my left ear. I have found a few people having report that they lost their hearing also. I'm just curious as to about how many people have had this problem.

Having what seems like absents seizures presure is over 30 at the moment and chronic daily migraine not under control
From this study (3 months ago):
Doctors asked if I had an infection. I saw an infectious disease doctor and he tested everything and said no infections, hidden or obvious. WBC and platelet counts elevate when i am on diamox. Doctors do not beleive me since diamox is known to decrease WBC, however, when I weaned myself off it slowly and was off of diamox for a period of 3 months, my WBC and platelts counts returned to normal. I have to be on diamox now for papilledema, pseudo tumor cerebi since Topomax did not work for me. I lsot the weight I needed to control the pressure, however, at the dosage needed, I could not teolerate it so I had to go to Diamox until I get more weight off to resolve pseudo tumor cerebri.
