Shiela Jornales

where do you think i should go for check up? neurologist or ear doctor or ENT? my symptoms are: ear fullness/tinnitus, right frontal head pressure (no pain) but a head ache sometimes, stiffy nose, neck pain. i suffer these for few months now. i’ve been to sinus doctors already, had medication and these keep coming back. had CT scan but only mild congestion and deviated septum diagnosed. migraine or sinus related?

15 03 2011

The ENT is the ear, nose and sinus specialist. You can go back to your doctor so he/she can explain your condition.

We do not give specific advice about any disease using the internet. It is best that you see your doctor if you have questions about your condition.
Thank you.

Just wanna ask if pwede ba internal med doctor ko ipa-check up ung kapatid ko my case ng epilepsy? She’s from province kasi and nagme-maintain nlng xa ng gamot ngaun. For now, gusto ko xa ipa-check up ulit if pwede na xa hndi uminom ng gamot since hndi nman na xa sinusumpong ng epilepsy nya. Pwede naba ung internal med doctor? Salamat. Hoping for your immediate response. Godbless

21 04 2011

Expertise on epilepsy is with neurologists po kasi.
However, if you are in the province and the internal med doctor has experience managing/ treating patients with epilepsy, then it is ok.

Hi! I noticed that my 6 months old nephew has a motor-delay development. I went to a Pedia doctor and advised us to see a Pedia Neuro which we did (but we had a hard time in setting-up the schedule because the doctor has only limited clinic hours in our province, so he is now 10months old). The Pedia Neuro told us to have the baby CT scanned – plain and contrast, as well as therapy. Will it be ok to ask for a second opinion? or is there a big chance that we will be told the same by a different doctor?thanks!

1 06 2011

Sorry, we do not give specific advice about any disease using the internet. It is best that you see your doctor if you have questions about your condition.
It is your / the family’s prerogative to take a second opinion.

I am a regular employee and my husband was a carpenter before he got sick and couldn’t get up anymore. He is in bed, in pain and unable to work. I need to know my opeions please. Thank you.

13 06 2011

Hindi po kami nagbibigay ng estimate ng gastos ng operasyon dito sa internet.
Pinakamabuting makausap ninyo ang inyong doktor dahil iba-iba po ang kondisyon ng pasyente kaya’t iba-iba din ang maaaring maging gastos ng pagpapa-opera.
