Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- With a history of squamous cancer and pilonidal cyst and neuro issues should i be concerned ?
I have had a long history of bleeding from above anus, neuro issues like brain tingle and cognitive movement disorder, lumbar pain and weakness, buttock, groin, leg tingling and weakness. Cold feet. Anemic. My concern is this bleed from previously repaired pilonidal cyst has been chronic for years. My research indicates squamous cell cancer is an 80% causative factor in chronic pilonidal irritation/cyst. Since I was diagnosed w squamous nail bed in 2012, amputation 2014, should I be concerned. ? Doctor is unaware of cyst / bleed history. I am obese, but remarkably losing weight ... Loss of appetite. I am positive for esophageal metaplastic changes. Also urinary incontinence mild. Obviously I am concerned about metastatic cancer. No pain in lower spine. Just constant leg and buttock ache / tingle. I thought bleed was hemorrhoids. Not. Ca the mortician ?? Lol. Thanks for any input.

- My sister has been taking depakote cogentin and geodon and suffers with great memory loss inability to carry on a conversation and drops things all the time is this the effect of these drugs? (1 answer)
Sister takes over 16 perscriptions but the ones mentioned are severe.. due to being bi-polar, and severe agoraphobia and anxiety with depression..is this now her life? Not being able to fully comprehend or remember anything? Dropping things and falling when under the full impact of this medication? I either need to get some acceptance or find answers to the effects this medicine is causing..afraid to change up her medicines but needless to say I am worried...
- Gastro with constipation in a 4 year old only cause pain at night?
In childrens hospital now have given the tag virus for stomach pain at night that is relieved by morphine
- Can my symptoms actually pinpoint a cause/condition? (1 answer)
I would just like insight on this. I'm on pain management right now, but it's just to manage the pain. Every thing else has really been not taken serious by any physican it office I've been to. Is this normal stuff many woman go through? I'm just sick of feeling like this between the constant pain & the daily having to pluck hairs it's insane. I'm in fantastic shape(used to be double my weight & now I'm 100lbs), the best looking I've ever been with a incredibly good looking husband & a wonderful family. My issues seem to detour a lot of things & while I'm young I'd like to get this solved or some type of solution to even maintain myself, not looking for a miracle, but would really appreciate answers.

From this study (4 years ago):
If i didn't take the suboxone, that would knock off about 3 medicines on that list. But I need the suboxone till i'm completely off of it. I'm about to start taking lunesta 2nite instead of melatonin. See what works better.
