User:Hello Dr
Doctor:please proceed with your query
User:Dr...I had had some problem in my abdomen for the past 1 week......and I had consulted a doctor.
User:there was a burning sensation and I have little pain in the right side of my stomach
User:The Doctor suspected of intestinal infection and gave me a few medicines....we got a blood test conducted CBC and also Ultra Sound was done for detecting any chances of appendicitus
User:but every thing came clear
User:however, there still was pain when the Dr checked and pressed on both left and right side
User:Now the Dr is asking me to get a CT scan done so as to be sure whether anything is wrong and I am apprehensive about the radiation
User:What should I do?
Doctor:A single exposure to CT Scan will not cause any problem and is within the normal internationally allowed levels
Doctor:If this is all you are worried about, it is nothing. You can go ahead with the CT scan
User:Also I had had a problem in the past and I think it is still there, I would let you know and also would need your suggestion whether to consult a neurologist.
User:I was in the school and I was almost 17 or 18 then.....I am 28 now and am married
User:We came to know of the doctor through one of my aunt.
User:The doctor told some thing to my parents and he started treating me for some disorder related to my genitals.....he was a homeopathic Dr........he gave me some doses and asked me if I automatically ejaculated if touched my a girl.....I was young and was afraid and hesitant as I used to masturbate.
User:I took those medicines for some time and lost some control of my siemen discharge
User:I started having nocturnal ejaculation without dreams.....the doctor gave me a couple of doses of hormonal injections
User:I feel that because of all those things my nerves have become a bit week and it has been almost 10 years now.....I am not sure how much this has hampered my system.....I did speak to a few doctors in the past and they all said that this was normal
User:I am not sure how my body has worked with all this and I feel I should consult a neurologist.....but I do not know .....I am confused?
Doctor:I would like to reassure that, such a thing does happen normally
Doctor:But you did not require any medications for this be it homeopathic or otherwise
Doctor:Because this nocturnal ejaculation is a normal and physiological process which does happen in sexually aroused state
Doctor:I would like to make another point here,
User:I had been having nocturnal emissions without dreams....and that makes me confused
Doctor:If you do not somehow ejaculate, you should think you are abnormal
Doctor:You can have ejaculation without dreams, dreams are not necessary for an ejaculation
Doctor:it is a physiologic process, on an average, a person gets an erection at least five times during a sleep of 8 hours
User:Should it be a concern if it happens say on a regular basis
Doctor:and there are phases of sleep in which even if you do get a dream you will not remember it
Doctor:It should happen on a regular basis if you do not masturbate or if you do not have an active sexual relationship
Doctor:I feel you still believe that nocturnal ejaculation is a bad thing right?
Doctor:because of that homeopathic doctor...?
User:No I do not....yes...that latter part of your statement is correct because it had cause a lot of mental trauma for me then and now that I am married I am a bit worried and I have my wife and I need to take care of myself because of her.....also I want to have a life where I am not living in constant fear.
Doctor:There is nothing to be afraid of
Doctor:You are perfectly normal. If you still not satisfied, you can consult an XXXXXXX and a psychiatrist
User:Thank you ....I feel much relieved now....however, I wanted to get a final clarification from you on the CT scan of the abdomen you feel it is required?
Doctor:I encourage you to involve in a healthy and regular sexual activity with your wife and make her happy as well you
Doctor:If your treating doctor says it is required, then it is required, because without examining you I can not give a valid answer to that
User:Thank you Dr for your time and help :)
