Hi. My mother has foot drop from nerve damage due to hip replacement and below knee has lost all muscle tissue. She has dementia and is now wheel chair bound. Can you recommend a high top shoe to keep from getting worse? We have the brace but her leg swells from ed edema.

HI! I have a 5yr old daughter when she was born she passed her hearing test. Since then she has had 2 sets of tubes placed in both ears. She just had her second set about 4 weeks ago. Well she failed her hearing test at school so of course I take her to her specialist and right tube is still in ear and stuck. So, her second surgery 4 weeks ago was removal of second right tube and 2 new ones put in and she took another hearing test yesterday and she failed again audiologist stated she has nerve damage. How did this happen? she has never been in a major accident. Could this have been caused by the doctor? Thanks a concerned Mother

Hi, I just went to the dentist yesterday and during the injection of the numbing stuff, there was a shock of pain that went through my tongue for a short second and now, a day later, a tiny piece of my tongue is still a little numb and it feels texture differently. Visually it is no different from the rest of my tongue, no bleeding or holes or anything. could there be nerve damage? I have to go back to get my wisdom teeth out next week. should I wait that long to tell them about it or do something else about it? Will the feeling come back eventually?
