  • Fill in doctor refuses to write prescriptions

    My mother-in-law's primary care physician is on leave. Prior to his leave he wrote my mother-in-law her rx's to cover the time on leave. Though she has one rx that requires a doctor to write the rx each month. We were advise by her primary prior to leave that said "Fill in" doctor would write the monthly rx. Now that the primary physician is on leave we are being told that the "fill in" doctor will not write the other rx. My mother-in-law has taken these medications for....

The fundamental advantage is the application on the patient without straps, weights, etc. in the horizontal....

    Looking for specialist

    I have constant and severe back pain that is progressing dramatically the past 3 years. I took care of my mother for 13 years and she was bedridden so I'm sure that is where all this started. Upper back (burning pain) and lower back (searing pain) . Now my left leg is going numb when I walk a short distance. No pain down the backs of my legs. I have been to my GP. I've been to a Neurologist (he did a procedure to numb the nerves in my lower back that had no affect). I have seen a Chiropractor....

    Unexplained Chest Pain?

    After having a collapsed lung 5 my seemingly healthy life seems to have started to crumble, at least that's how it feels. I'm 19 and I've been diagnosed with acid reflux, I've been taking medication to reduce the irritation, so hopefully that works, my throat is still extremely red after a 2 weeks of using it. That aside I was wondering if anyone else experiences some other symptoms I've been having. Aside from acid reflux, I get tight, dull, aching chest pain in the upper middle....

  • Combined aspirin with Flector patch ...

    I went to my clinic today in Hungary for cracking in my neck when I turn it to the left side. I was perscribed the Flector patch, also with pain killer and muscle relaxant. I don't speak fluent Hungarian so I wasn't aware of the information about the Flector patch, such as that it is a NSAID and can't be mixed with other NSAID drugs like aspirin. My doctor also didn't inform me of this NSAID complication. I had taken 1 tablet aspirin about 15 minutes before I applied the Flector patch....
