Miscellaneous FeedbackThe following feedback does not fall under any current subject.
AskDocWeb: Raynaud's phenomenon (RP) is a peripheral circulatory disorder characterized by sudden episodes of digital artery spasm, often set off by cold temperature or emotional stress. Although the cause of RP is not fully known, it appears to involve inappropriate adrenergic response to cold stimuli. Treatment of RP includes the use of agents that promote digital vasodilation. The calcium-channel antagonists are the most thoroughly studied class of drugs for the treatment of RP. Approximately two thirds of patients respond favorably, with significant reductions in the frequency and severity of vasospastic attacks. Nifedipine use is often limited by the appearance of adverse vasodilatory effects such as headache or peripheral edema. The newer second-generation dihydropyridines such as isradipine, amlodipine, nicardipine, and felodipine also appear to be effective in patients with RP and may be associated with fewer adverse effects.

Subj: Pin worms
How do you get rid of pin worms that you have had for over 10 years?
AskDocWeb: That sounds like a lot of suffering for something so easily treated. Both over-the-counter and prescription medications are available to treat pinworms. They come in liquid, chewable tablet, and pill forms. It is important to note that pinworm medication does not kill pinworm eggs. Because of this, it is usually suggested that people with symptoms get a second treatment 2 weeks after the first treatment to kill any new worms that may have hatched from eggs during that time. If you can't afford a visit to a doctor, just ask a pharmacist to recommend an over-the-counter product.

Vitamins A, B-complex, C and E, magnesium, calcium, zinc, selenium, omega-3 fatty acids, alpha-lipoic acid and L-tyrosine are recommended. Herbal supplements include bladderwrack, Green Tea, coleus and guggul. If you can find a health care provider that is educated in natural alternatives they can determine what will work best for you.
