@S_U_N- it might be just heat exhaustion due to exposure to direct sunlight for prolonged time.

Please consult your GP doc, and Get your blood sugars and complete blood counts and your BP measured to rule out anything.

Guys, I need some help with glasses.

My new glasses arrived. I have some angle and axis for both my eyes with usual myopia.

Now when I wear these glasses, I see everything clearly. Perfectly actually. But I find that there is some strain in my left eye. If I close my right eye, my left feels fine. If I close my left eye my right eye feels fine.

But if I watch far away things with both the eyes I feel strain in my left eye.

Why would that be?

I have been wearing these glasses now for more than 2 days and I feel a little uncomfortable with this strain.

Is there a problem with glasses or my just that my eyes are not used to correct prescription?

Please help

Hi ! There could be two possibilities.
1.The more common one- Since you have astigmatism too, it will take sometime to adjust. I would suggest you use the specs for a week and then see if this settles.
2. The power might be wrong. Firstly get the power of the newly made spectacle checked with the power given in the prescription and see if the match.

If you try both and still feel a discomfort, I would suggest you get your power checked again with another Opthalmologist.

I have this lump about the size of a finger tip, on the front of my neck, slightly to the left. It feels like it is part of the skin because I cannot roll the skin over it.

What can it be? I hope it is not a tumor. Which specialist should I consult?

Btw, I used to have lots of pimple. Still do have sometimes, one or two popping out. But this one does not feel like pimple.

That image looks scary.
First thing is to consult a General Physician at the earliest, who can recommend the type of scan you need to do - X-Ray, CT or anything else.
Based on the scan, the course of treatment will start.

Hope it is not the T. Get it corrected at priority and get well soon man.

My mom has been adviced to get dental implants and here is what the doctor suggested after looking at the CDCT
2 Nos of Nobel Biocare @ Rs.58k each
4 Nos of ADIN (I think) @ Rs.38k each

Would like to know if these brands are good and are the prices mentiond appropriate? Aparantly these come with warranty and the doc is saying 80% money back in case the implants come off.

Jaguar,

Usually good implant companies will replace a failed implant free of cost.

Implants have an extremely high success rate (more than 96.3%) but this depends on numerous factors like case selection, medical history, sterilisation, etc

The problems happen when doctors get greedy. There is a popular saying in implantologist circles: Patients with money don't have bone and vice-a-versa. Most problems happen when you try to insert an implant in a patient with insufficient bone.

Usually any implant made of titanium will integrate (fuse) if all protocols are followed.

I don't want to say anything about any of the above two brands on an open forum but always go for newer but technology that has at least 6-8 years of research behind it, find an implant with a conical connection instead of the old hex connection which usually leads to screw loosening.

I'm sure your dentist will understand my mumbo jumbo.

Having said all this, i never offer guarantees/warranties to my patients and as said in a popular movie, "we're not selling fans"

Implants are surgically inserted and your body may or may not accept it. Though in most cases if done properly, the body accepts it. Medical factors like diabetes, smoking, etc need to be controlled of course.

After that it's like buying a new car. If you don't service it, you can't blame the manufacturer if it falls apart. Similarly for implants you need to go for clean ups and check ups every six months. If all's well, the implant should last you for your lifetime. Any implant. The first implant ever placed lasted more than 50years!

The two implants supporting my top-front-teeth bridge are coming up to their tenth birthday.

Need some advice.

I've been suffering from a stiff neck, and the stiffness seems to be concentrated on the left rear side (right around the spot where the hairline normally ends). I first thought it's just down to sleeping at a wrong angle or overstretching during a Yoga posture, but the stiffness hasn't gone away after a a couple of weeks. It's more discomfort than pain, but I can clearly feel it when making quick neck movements, esp. when I tilt my head upwards (so the back of the neck compresses). I also seem to be getting occasional throbbing sensations on the exact same spot on the right side of my neck.

Any suggestions on how to treat it? Can there be an underlying cause? Do I need specialist advice?

Today I heave a sigh of relieve. Pathology report came back stating "no granuloma ....... features suggestive of epidermal cyst".

I has discovers this lump last Saturday. I sat on it for two days with no worry. On Monday evening after a discussion with my sister-in-law I started Googling. I began to get scared because it seems to be symptomatic of the dreaded C. I was also acutely aware of my pan chewing days, 6 to 10 years back.

So I spent a worrying Tuesday in office. Reading this thread on that day did not help either. So for my peace of mind I consulted a doctor on Tuesday evening. He categorically stated it is not the dreaded one. He recommended an FNAC to plan treatment.

Moral of the story:
Internet research about medical symptoms is not a bright idea. Nothing beats physically examination.
I suggest only medical professionals offer medical opinion in response to specific queries in this thread, others should add a disclaimer. Of course everyone should freely share their experiences.

In the old days we used to do it with books. Nothing was worse for the health than a medical dictionary!

Have to admit, though, that your lump reminded me of one I had removed from the top of my head thirty years ago. It was about the size of half a cashew. A general doctor whipped it out and put in a stitch. All done before I realised he'd started!

The there was a lump on my foot. The doctor laughed at my worries and told me it was a just a "fatty lump." I went home singing, "I've got a fatty lump..."

But it is certainly healthier to get these things checked out. It's what doctors are for!
