Sudden Onset Of Possible Hypoglycemia In 6yo.??

My son has been diagnosed with ADHD, Asperger's Syndrome, Pediatric Conduct Disorder, and has been on Tenex, Celexa, and Risperdal in VERY VERY low doses. At the plea of the psychiatrist I decided to place him on an elimination diet to check for food sensitivities. Already known allergies to milk and peanut. What we found were extreme behaviors on sugar day (extremely tired & completely Out of it)and food coloring day (very hyper, just overall difficult to control himself and frequent urination). Deciding to try sugar again, thought I would check his blood w/ glucometer beforehand. 2 hrs after eating, his level measured 87. 3 hours later he was crying, pale, not feeling well, had a slight fever, and a sore throat, and I decided to check prior to dinner-- meter said LO. After research, found out meter reads as low as 10. I NEED ADVICE! Do I continue monitoring for a few days, try the sugar, or take him straight to a Dr?? Thanks!!

I have developed buzzing in my head April this year. Is there a cure for this?

Asked By: D_Confucius
I have now learned that this is called tinnitus. The buzzing was severe enough for me to seek medical help, ENT, neutrologist, and psychiatrc. Brain MRI shows no problem. I did have a history of exposure to loud noise from work, which I changed after I developed tinnitus. A funny thing about this tinnitus is that when I focus on something, it goes away completely. Also, gentle sounds mask it completely. However, in a loud resturant, I hear the buzzing much louder, over the clatter of the restaurant. It goes up with the ambient volume. The rining is completely within my head. I can not tell which ear it is coming from. I have mornings when I imagine that I don't hear it. Do I have a psychological tinnitus, like hearing voices? Or is this a more or less, a typical tinnitus?

Breast cancer... wigs?

Asked By: goofy fish!
Hello, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer recently and will be starting chemo soon. I am trying everything that I can to get ready and keep her calm and comfortable through all of this. My mother has always loved my hair. She has always said 'I wish I had half the hair you do!' her hair has always been very fine and thin and mine is thick and I have so much of it. I decided that if possible, I will cut all of my hair off and have a wig made from it to give to her. Now she really would have my hair and, she wouldnt feel as akward wearing hair from a stranger. Not that there is anything wrong with that but I would just like her to have mine. If you have any ideas or suggestion please let me know! I know wigs are quite expensive but im working alot so I can afford one for her. Thank you!

Are gay men really more at risk of catching HIV if they practice safe sex?

Asked By: James M
Recently having come out, I always get people saying they're worried, because of my higher risks of catching HIV. But surely, just because it is a lot more frequent in gay men, that doesn't mean I in particular am any more at risk does it? especially as I would use a condom, and I don't plan on having hundreds of sexual partners.

Help!! Please, Skin Spots.?

Asked By: Sheexxiii <3
Ok, so a week ago I got one spot on my bellie - looked like a heat spot about the size of a rubber on the end of a pencil. Was itchy, but not to bad and went away about a 4days later. Yesterday I woke up with 2 more of these things and over the course of the day 2 more appeared. They are REALLY itchy and the inside crease of my elbow, neck and on the inside crease of my knee - unbearably itchy. They are circular, pink and otherwise hard to describe - they sort of look like the raised bumped you get after a jag at the docs. I have a appointment at the docs, but its in 2weeks and I can bear this itchy feeling any more. So does anyone have any ideas what these, pink, raised, small, extremely itchy spots are?? and how I can get rid of them??

Sudden onset of frequent nosebleeds for no reason?

Asked By: Katie H
I am 15 years old and have never had a nosebleed in my life until about 3 weeks ago. In the past 3 weeks I have had 7 nosebleeds with no apparent reason why. I have been having dizzy spells every few days but I figured it was nothing major. About 2 1/2 weeks ago I had surgery on my foot to repair a damage plantar fascia. I'm not sure if it's at all related, but it's the only thing I can think of. Also, in the past few weeks, I developed a ganglion cyst on my wrist which was removed by a needle today. I've tried to ignore the nosebleeds but tonight I had a nosebleed that gushed blood and I'm starting to get worried. Any advice on what this could be? I have an appointment with my doctor in a week and 1/2
