Brief Answer:
this is fine

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Yes, you can use it every 6 hours but should avoid less than that time interval. A 6 to 8 hour time frame is fine.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions

I am a 31 yr old male, and I went into afib a few months ago. the bout only lasted for about 24 hrs and i have not gone into afib since. over the last few weeks my heart has been fluttering often accompanied by tightness of chest and numbness in my left arm. I have checked out with a clean bill of health with my doctors, and I am confused. I believe I found the commom denomonator but I am not sure if these issues can be linked. I am constantly having back issues, and about 2 years ago i went to the chiropractor to find out my spine looks like that of some one who jumps out of planes for a living and i have to go in every so often to get adjusted and treated for sciatica. my afib and flutters only happen after I have aggrivated my back and nerves. my question is: can these be linked, and are your nerves part of the same electrical system that controls your hearts rhythm?

Hello Doctor. I'm 25yrs old, 164cm, 61kgs guy from India. I had a acute disc prolapse L4-L5 & sciatica while palying football 3 yrs ago. I went for conservative treatment nerve manipulation. I was back to normal. 3 weeks ago I have got back the same pain due to travelleing on bumppy roads. MRI report Mild rethrolisthesis of L4 over L5 posterior disc bulge with annular tear and mild caidal migration at L5-S1 level. Doctor says L5-S1 problem may lead to Impotence. I'm worried, I'm not yet married. Over the last few months when I masterbate I'm unable to ejaculate in standing position. Only by sleeping on my back i can ejaculate. Please explain my symptoms.

I am a 72 year old woman. For the past week I have been getting excruciating thigh muscle cramping thinking it was sciatica . My doc doesn't have office hours today and I want to begin taking magnesium supplement. What is the safe dosage?

doctor1 MD

This is a follow-up to our chat of a few days ago re magnesium to alleviate intense muscle spasms in my thigh. It seems to be helping along with the 2mg Tizanidine . I have spoken with my internist and he agrees that I should see an orthopedist to...
