Hi,thanks for query.In case of documented eosinophelia you need not to worry.Some times chronic coughing can itself leads to loss of appetite.take plenty of fluids,light diet and proper rest.Only for high ESR you need not to worry.Keep regular follow up with your doctor and in case of persistent problem you may need blood counts again and X-ray chest for diagnosis.bye.

Hi Dr. Pragnesh, One more query. Initially I had went to a DR AND he gave a course of antibiotics. There was no improvement. Then again I consulted another general physician and he too prescribed another course of antibiotics.This was in March this year. Then March end I took chest X ray, angio ,ecg,echo.Results were normal except for eusinophelia where the count was 55. Then that same dr gave me cetri plus.Still my appetite is poor,though I manage to eat twice a day.When can I resume my work.Presently I am taking full rest. How can I gain weight? Thanks dr.

Dr Pragnesh, one more doubt. The tests showed pericardial effusion near lungs and blood creatine level as 1.7.is creatine level normal? That time I was under antibiotic treatment for consecutive 2nd time. Now I have stopped all medicines as what my dr prescribed is over. Pl I hope you give me an early reply.thanks dr.

My son aged 18+ has been taking Paxidep CR25 for two years for anxiety, depression and OCD. After one year he stopped the medicine, the problems relapse. Dr. advised him to continue the medicine. He has also taken counseling for one year but to no avail. Now, he has concentration problems, not performing well even after hardworking, getting annoyed on small things, feeling headache, nausea, dry mouth, loss of appetite etc. Kindly guide me on my following queries:- i) How long he can take Paxidep. ii) Whether side effects of paxidep are temporary or permanent iii) whether OCD is curable or the patient has to take the medicine throughout the life.

Hi, I rolled my right ankle about 4 weeks ago. After about 2-3 weeks of rest and icing my right ankle, it felt pretty good. Good enough to start jogging again. I could walk and jog with no pain. On the forth week I tried to get back into soccer. Before the game I laced up my shoes and ankle brace then stood straight up to go for a jog. Immediately when I stood up I noticed a sharp ripping pain, across the bottom of my shin maybe near the top of the extensor tendons (if that s the right name for it, the tendon attached to the tibia), moving from the outside to the inside of my foot. I tried loosening the ankle brace but still the ripping pain continued when I stood up. I completely loosened the ankle brace and the ripping pain left and I could jog again. I decided not to play and started to examine the pain. The ripping pain only occurs when I over-extend my right leg or when I am standing/extending my leg and touch/grab my lower shin/upper ankle area. I had an X-Ray done on my lower leg/ankle but I haven t heard back from the doctor so I figured there wasn t any issues with my bones or ligaments. That leads me to believe it is a partial tear(s) in the muscle or tendon. Could you please give me a general idea if I need to have it surgically repaired or will I be able to continue resting and wait it out and eventually it will heal properly all on its own? Thanks Adam Cyr
