Q. what sort of health issues may arise?

I am a pizza lover. My friends do not take it; it’s my bad luck that I have them alone. They say it’s not good for health. Yet I have no health issues. So, just wanted to know while having pizza what sort of health issues may arise?
APeople are having pizza from many decades and it’s a type of Combination Food, where two or more food groups combine. Combination Foods are great sources of nutrients because they combine the nutrients from several foods. They have only been criticized for being high-calorie content. But if you are burning the required calorie every day you can take it but not at frequent intervals and yes it tastes yummy….

Q. Is it effective to determine the problem?

How is the diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy done and is it effective to determine the problem?
A1actually it will come with three common symptoms such as : positive pregnancy, abdominal pain or cramp, and bleeding. if you're happened to feel one of those symptoms, i'll suggest you to go see your ob-gyn specialist, then the doctor will do the physical examination on you, and will confirm the diagnosis with ultrasound.
A2first of all you come with pregnancy signs, then a blood or urine sample confirms it. in an ultrasound you see there's no fetus in the uterus, and if the the egg is visible you may see it on the fallopian tubes. rarely it can occur in the abdominal area, and this is bad.
A3Generally your doctor will check for pelvic and check for your pain and mass in fallopian tube or ovary. The further tests are taken to confirm after physical examination, as physical checking will not confirm it. Other important tests are ultrasound and blood tests and are effective.

Q. Has anyone ever had this problem?

My grandfather is showing all the symptoms of bipolar disorder. My aunt is a nurse and she confirms that he is a bipolar. We can't tell him that he is sick and he will not stay in hospital. As far my knowledge, it will take years to get diagnosed for bipolar and I am worried about his health and he is making my family miserable. How can we get help him? Has anyone ever had this problem?
A1This is not as uncommon as you would think... You can not forse someone to admit they have a problem or to get treatment. What you can control is you and how you deal with him. You can set boundaries and your family can set boundaries. Sometimes it takes a mojor change to motivate them to seek the help they need. It is unfortunate and difficult to have to make these changes but sometimes it is what it takes. You can also try to talk to him when he is not experiencing an episode (be it mania or depression) Perhaps catching him on tape in a mania so you can show him how these episodes manifest and explain to him the ways that it makes you and your family feel. Try to be understanding and compassionate with what he is going through and understand that what you are going through watching him in these states is only a fraction of what he is going through... Love and patience is so important but it is also important not to comprimise yourself in the process... I hope for all the bes
A2Yes, Do not tell him directly that he is a bipolar. Instead talk to him politely and make him understand that he has a disorder. Although the treatment strategies for geriatric bipolar disorder patients are similar to those for younger patients, it is pretty clear that special consideration must be given to the elderly patients with bipolar. This is particularly relevant with regard to pharmacologic interventions because of the pharmacokinetic differences in drug metabolism in older patients. Apart from that elderly patients may have greater difficulty with issues such as transportation and accessibility and may have complicated financial situations that present further challenges to treatment. More attention is being placed on the treatment of elderly patients with bipolar disorder, and new studies, such as GERI-BD, will further enhance the doctor’s ability to properly manage and treat the patients.

Q. migraine problems

i have migraine problems every month
A1Amy is right. My migraines started when I was 14 and so did my menstrual cycle. Male or female talk to your doctor there are lots of migraine meds and don't forget foods can be a trigger too! Do you go out to eat a certain type of food once a month?Friends at work and I use to go out month and I always got a migraine...the doctor solved that one for me so wwe changes where we ate!
A2Are you a woman? If you are, than you should pay attention if this migraine occurs in relation to your menstrual cycle (especially two-three days after the onset of menses).

You may read more about it here: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/migraine.html

There are several treatments for migraine. Anyway, they require prescription, so you may want to consult your doctor (e.g. neurologist) about your migraine.

Q. How to deal with sleeping problems?

I wonder if anyone could help me. Here's the thing: I’ve been in school break for two months now and that means i usually go to bed at about 2 am, and I usually wake up with an alarm clock at 11 for breakfast then lunch immediately after breakfast. My problem is that I have problems sleeping, I usually stay an hour or two in bed trying to get some sleep.
A1My Dr. has me on Ambien cr,12.5 MG Tablets, and they work fine for me. I though i would see if they really worked about a month ago and did not take a pill before bed time, and i went right to sleep and slep for about 1 1/2 hrs and was awake the rest of the night, so i never fail to take a tablet every night when i lay down. Ask your dr. about this med.
A2It sounds like you have a problem to fall asleep but not to actually sleep, since you are sleeping from 2 to 11 every night, which is 9 hours.
Here is a website with some tips on how to fall asleep:

A3I tend to do that as well after the holidays. I recommend a few days before school starts go to bed the time you usually do during the holidays but then get up really early in the morning (say 6am for an example). Put a REALLY annoying and loud alarm clock at the end of your room so you would have to get out of bed and turn it off in order to get some sleep. After you turn the alarm off don't go back to bed, no matter how tired you are. Try taking a shower or going to a walk to wake yourself up. That night then you would be a little more tired than you would normally be, so it should be easier to sleep.

Q. Could there be an underlying problem if you have frequent headaches?

Sometimes i get a headache that lasts for days and it doesnt go away when i take medicine. Could this mean that something else is wrong?
A1Migraines, pituitary tumor, subluxations in the cervical vertebrae (means misaligned bones in ur neck), caffeine withdrawls, need glasses to see and you have eye strain, brain tumor, stroke, hypertension -- does that help?
A2Hi Terrany, have you had a chance to get this checked? or found some sort of medication which helps you through these headache attacks?
A3well, this is a very general description, headaches are a very common symptom. i have the same headaches because i have chronic sinusitis, doesn't mean you have that too. how often is it? is it a pounding headache? a migraine? is it local (left/right/back)? you need to be very specific and ask a Dr. about it. he can recommend several tests- MRI and such.

here is a good portal about headaches with tons of information:

A1krando,
