How to differentiate between patient with olfactory nerve problem or with malinger?

How can a doctor know that the patient is malingering or if he/she truly have an olfactory nerve problem?

I'm not a doctor yet, but I would suggest testing them with some really noxious odor that they would not be able to pretend they don't smell. Or have them come into a room, and have the room flooded with said noxious odor when they are by themselves, but record them or secretly observe them to see if they react since no one is around. Some people vomit just from the smell of vomit, feces, dead fish, etc. If they don't see it, how else would they be able to react without smelling it? Good luck!

Can they taste food? Ask them what foods they have been eating lately, but try to disguise what you're looking for - people who cannot smell cannot taste much, either.  (+ info)

Hi There

First you need to relax about the issue. If you keep focused on the issue then you'll attract more of the issue (law of attraction).

Here are some ideas to heal the issue. You need to take control of your health and this is a great start. Asking for assistance and excepting all answers. Dont let anyone tell you this or that. Always research and trust your own instincts on health. You will determine what you will believe in or try, but be open to all options and you will heal yourself.

Aromatherapy: Chamomile, eucalyptus, cedarwood, juniper, and/or lavender essential oils massaged into the affected areas can relieve pain.

Diet: Eat an organic, whole foods diet and drink plenty of pure filtered water throughout the day. Also eliminate all caffeinated beverages, refined sugars, cigarettes, and commercial carbonated beverages.

Herbs: Combine equal parts of the tinctures of St. John`s wort, skullcap, oat, and Siberian ginseng. Take one teaspoon of this mixture three times a day. Externally, peppermint oil can be applied to the affected area to relieve pain.

Homeopathy: Useful homeopathic remedies include Belladonna, Aconite, Mag phos., Phytolacca, Chelidonium, Lycopodium, and Arsen alb.

Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment.
*Purified water is essential for any hydrotherapy treatment. Remedies for Treating Chlorinated Bath Water offers clear instructions and recommendations.

Juice Therapy: Parsley, celery, and carrot juice acts as a nerve tonic that can be helpful in mild cases.

Nutritional Supplementation: The following nutrients can be helpful: vitamin B complex, vitamin B1, vitamin B3 (niacin), vitamin B6, vitamin B12, folic acid, pantothenic acid, vitamin C with bioflavonoids, Brewers` yeast, calcium, lecithin, and magnesium. Proteolytic enzymes taken away from meals can also be helpful especially in cases of neuritis.

Topical Treatment: Apply Epsom salt packs to the affected area.

Water: You need to be drinking around a gallon of water a day (I do). We are made of 85% water and the nerves need the fluid to function properly. We lose a quart of water a day, just by breathing. Dont underestimate the power of drinking water.

Alternative Professional Care
If your symptoms persist despite the above measures, seek the help of a qualified health professional. The following professional care therapies have all been shown to be useful for treating neuralgia, neuropathy, and neuritis: Acupressure, Acupuncture, Biofeedback Training, Chelation Therapy, Chiropractic, Craniosacral Therapy, Detoxification Therapy, Environmental Medicine, Light Therapy, Magnetic Field Therapy, Naturopathic Medicine, Neural Therapy, Osteopathy, Oxygen Therapy (Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy), Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Yoga.

What are olfactory & pulmonary diseases? Are they related with environmental pollution? How?

There have been many studies about the relationship between environmental toxins and illness/disease including those you speak of. I think that all of us are in danger of being clogged by impurities. I suggest nutritional cleansing to remove those toxins on a regular basis and allowing your body to return to being the miracle it was intended to be. The best I found on the market is the 30-day cleansing system from Isagenix.  (+ info)

Can you control some nerve impluses with any kind of medicne?

Im a bio major and Ive always had this problem dealing with blood and diseases. I usually strart getting all sweaty and I turn a pale white. Then I start feeling this tingly feeling and my eyes start seeing black patches then I usually pass out. I told this to one of my professors and they said that its a nerve that is sending these impluses and they keep getting stronger until I pass out. Im not sure how you spell the nerve but I believe it was called the Vegas nerve. Excuse my spelling but I want to know if their is any kind of medication I could take that dumbs this nerve down so when I have lectures or labs that deal with blood and diseases I wont have much of a problem. Any help would be appreciated.

It's the vagus nerve and you're having a vagal response with vaso-vagal syncope. Other taking than a very mild sedative before going into the stimulus environment, I would suggest desensitization. You may wish to discuss this with your primary care provider. A beta-blocker is used when the response is neurocardiogenic. But this type of response occurs spontaneously due to the particular mechanism causing it. Not because of seeing blood and disease.  (+ info)

Are there any neurological diseases which cause hearing loss?

I am currently under neurological investigation for many symptoms. Cognitive impairment, muscle tremors, muscle weakness, fatigue and headaches. I have recently experienced hearing loss in my right ear with feelings of pain and pressure in it. I went to a doctor and they saw no signs of infection so I am now assuming this problem is tied into my other problems. Can hearing loss be a symptom of neurological illness and if so is it permanent? Could it be a symptom of nerve damage. Any help really appreciated, thanks.

it's probably just ear wax or water stuck in there  (+ info)

How effective are epidurial cortisone injections for a pinched nerve?

I visited a chiropractor after being told that he might be able to help me with the pain caused by scoliosis/kyphosis/degenerative disc disease. I am in excruciating pain now. The result of the MRI is that my nerve is pinched where the curvature is. How effective are the epidural cortisone injections for a pinched nerve. Please someone help.

You should not go to the chiropractor instead see a physical therapist or an orthopedist and also ask your primary care physician what he thinks of you going to a chiro first. Trust me he wont think much of him.

Most Chiropractors are crooks. Here is the truth about what they do. A chiropractor can do spinal manipulations to relieve stress on spinal nerves caused by things like muscle tension or a slight misalignment of the discs. The manipulation is not a permanent change of anything though, and no - they can't permanently change the natural shape or curvature of a spine. An orthopedist can evaluate the situation and determine if a scoliosis is actually present, and if a brace would be of help. A brace has to be individually fitted though- it's not a one size fits all proposition. A chiropractor can be helpful in musculo-skeletal aches and pains, through manipulation and massage- but aside from that it's all smoke and mirrors. If you have back pain from the misalignment, they can help relieve that. But nothing they do is going to be a permanent fix. Spines don't work that way. To change a spine takes surgery and braces. Most chiropractors are quacks and want to take a full body X-ray then proceed and having you going to them for a very long time. In my opinion they are a little better then a back rub. Also Chiro's do not have medical degree's I would not have him give me any kind of medication. He knows nothing about it and actually doesn't really believe in medicine.  (+ info)
