Question: Hi! I have had an eye cataract surgery done 2 months back. Everything was fine for a month and then all of a sudden I started getting a pricky sensation in my eye. Went to my doctor several times and he said that everything was fine and changed my eye drops but there has hardly been any improvement. He said that it will take time to settle and has only given me Tear plus eye drops. The feeling as if something has gone in my eye is just unbearable. Pls advice. XXXXXXX

Dear XXXXXXX
thanks for sending your query to us.
Since the doctor has seen you then i presume that there is no redness and you have stopped using steroid eye drops which you were using postoperatively.
There seems to be some post op inflammation.
To begin with you can use steroid drops you were using after surgery,3-4 times a day and if they do not solve your problem then take ibuprofen 400 once a day for 5 days.
please do get back to me in case of any further query.

I have a massive headache after getting my tattoo. I have gotten many tattoos in the past, but this the first time I ve had this problem. It s a sharp pain on the right side of my head. No dizziness but I m extremely nauseous. I ve taken 800mg of ibuprofen but have not received any pain relief after 2 hours. Is it ok to take a Vicodin?

I m using a Lidoderm patch for (light) shoulder pain. I had a rotator cuff tear surgery in Oct. 2013. At times I get pain in the shoulder (while exercising and/or playing tennis). Is Lidoderm the same as ibuprofen except it is in a patch form? Thanks for replying.

Hi, it has been a week now since I donated blood and there is terrible bruising along the side and right above where they placed the needle. There is also a stiff tightening pain as I move my arm that goes from my elbow up towards my shoulder. I ve taken aspirin and ibuprofen occasionally to try and ease the pain but nothing has helped. I even tried icing it on and off the first few days after, which was recommended by our American Red Cross donation center. Should I be concerned?
