Welcome to Ask a Doctor service!

I understand your concern and would explain that considering the repeated lung infarction, it is important taking anticoagulation therapy (warfarin) in order to prevent future episodes of pulmonary embolism.

I would also recommend performing a Doppler ultrasound of the leg veins in order to investigate for possible varicous veins and treat them if present.

Hope to have been helpful!

Wishing good health,

My friend wants to work abroad but needs to be cleared on medical first. She has a previous lung infection. She had undergone treatment for 6 months and now she is fine. The result of her xray was stated like this: clear lungs, heart is not enlarged, pulmonary vascular markings are within normal limit, trachea is not narrowed, diaphragm and costophrenic sulci are intact, bony structures are unremarkable. My question is: Can she come in UAE and pass the medical? Since here in UAE it is very strict. Even though you are healed and physically fit to work but if they see a scar on the lungs automatically you will be deported. Can I have an answer? Thanks..

. Firstly, I m a 46 yr. old female whose been under an extreme amount of stress lately and having some trouble sleeping the entire night, often waking in a sweat. I’m having hunger pains more often than usually lately and a sweet tooth I can’t seem to curb. I then become very lethargic after I eat no matter the amount of food, i.e. full meal or snack, and most of the time I have to take a nap or I find myself nodding off at work. I ve been also experiencing breakouts of acne about twice a month. I have a history of a hyperthyroid and my family has a history of diabetes, but my blood sugar seems to test normal. Could this be the onset of menopause or possibly Type II Diabetes?

My 15 year old daughter has occasional severe lower abdominal pain. She will feel the need to urinate and then won t be able to. She ends up with severe pain, curled up in a ball crying. This happens to her about once a month or so. We have a urologist who has conducted every test there is (invasive and otherwise) and everything comes back as normal. Any suggestions on what our next step should be. We ve been with the urologist for about a year. She s seen a gynecologist and all tests were negative. She also saw a doctor to see if she had diabetes, again negative.

We have consulted a doctor and she has prescribed Tab Duphaston (10 mg) twice daily. Could you advise us of its purpose and if it has any side effects in long-term. We would really appreciate your advice on this.
