Feb 26, 2018 · Reactive Hypoglycemia & Chronic Sinusitis in Just Want to Talk

Your symptoms are complex and could come from many medical reasons. I suggest you get a comprehensive examination by a good internist to begin with then go to any specialists he/she recommends. Your other choice is to go to a comprehensive medical center that has several specialists evaluate you together as a team to efficiently diagnose the problem by using best practices and develop a plan that is holistic. It's incredibly important that you get a complete assessment especially since you're so young. Wishing you all the best. 🙂

Feb 26, 2018 · Reactive Hypoglycemia & Chronic Sinusitis in Just Want to Talk

As a nurse and a cancer survivor I strongly advise you to see an endocrinologist first and if they refer you to other specialists do so. Your other choice is to go to a comprehensive medical center that can have several specialists evaluate you together and then act as a team to diagnose the problem by using best practices and develop a plan that is holistic. Your symptoms are varied and need a thorough assessment. Good luck!

Jan 24, 2018 · Voice - hoarse, subdued, sluggish / requires more effort to speak in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

Sorry, but I am just now seeing your September posts and replies. You did a great job of sharing your symptoms and I think I can suggest some things that might be helpful. If you could post an update on how you’re doing now and anything you’ve done to get further evaluated it would be great. I hope that you’ve found a doctor who can not only properly diagnoses you but give you a treatment plan that addresses your issues.

Aug 12, 2017 · Looking for Answers in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

Gail, I realize you just saw your ENT Thursday but I’m hoping that visit went well and your physicians can address your concerns. I’m not sure where or what type of hospital St. Jude’s is – other than the Children’s Hospital in Memphis but I’ll encourage you to seek out a second or third or forth opinion as needed. Head and Neck issues are often difficult to diagnose and you need an expert opinion you trust before moving on to decide on treatment. I’m a Mayo Head & Neck patient for almost 7 years and a practicing RN for almost 50 years so I have grown to understand both sides of diagnosis and treatment. All the best

Aug 12, 2017 · Looking for Answers in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

Michele, I just saw your post and checking in to see how things are going since your last post on July 26th. Like Jeff my salivary gland cancer was found and expertly treated by the Mayo Head & Neck team of Dr. Kasperbauer, Dr. Moore and Dr. Neff. I am 7 years out from my original surgery and continue to travel to Rochester from Kentucky to receive the Mayo’s expert care and most of all their concern. I hear that you and your daughter feel no one is listening to you and that the symptoms are merely minor. I’ve learned that most doctors aren’t real experts in finding the answers to those of us who have issues like your daughters. I wish you all success and know that you can fully trust the physicians at the Mayo.

Jun 28, 2017 · What are your suggestions for a quiet place to relax between appts? in Visiting Mayo Clinic

The Center for the Spirit is a quiet, reflective place I’ve used several times on each visit for the past seven years. There’s a desk with lots of paper and pens to write your thoughts, prayers, express gratitude, anything you want to share. I’ve been told the notes are taken to the Sisters at St, Mary’s. There is also two labyrinths in the Center, in the carpet in the middle of the room to walk and a wooden one on the wall to follow with your finger. They represent a journey to your center and back again out into the world which I find is an excellent way to quietly center my thoughts and relax my mind. I value that these spiritual experiences are available for everyone, regardless of individual beliefs, in the center of the Mayo Clinic!
