Severe neck muscle tension. Botox?

I have intense, constant muscle tension on the right side of my neck. I think Botox will help, but my neurologists think it won't. Either convince me they're right or convince me I'm wrong. Oh, and is the anticholinergic drug I took three days ago making this problem worse? If so, what do I do about it? [more inside]

Should I go see Dr. Zizmor, the most heavily advertised dermatologist in NYC?

I still have periodic acne breakouts at the age of 24, and now that I have health insurance I want to see a dermatologist. However, there's a million of them in NYC, and I don't have the time to shop around, so I'm considering going with NYC's most heavily advertised doctor, Dr. Zizmor. Is this a bad idea? Have you or anyone you know ever said, "Thanks, Dr. Zizmor?" [more inside]

Hypotension/hypovolemia as a low-pass filter: I got cut, I went into shock, and then everything started sounding funny. I'd guess it was a 40 dB (±10) rolloff, which began near 200 Hz (±50) and left me with nothing above 1kHz. How in the world?

Is there an entomologist in the house?

Is there an entomologist in the house? My (then fifty-something) father developed a case of deep vein thrombosis in the '90s. They found a blood clot that extended nearly all the way up his leg. Guess what my father blames for his condition instead of a career with frequent business (plane) trips? He went to a cheap hotel in the Phillipines where there was an infestation of what he described as "little green caterpillers", one of which bit him, supposedly causing the blood clot (by means of venom). Another version of the story has it that a spider bite was responsible. A friend from his VFW post claims there is a kind of mite whose bite does this. I do not believe that there is any insect, arachnid, or caterpillar in existance whose venom does this. Who is right?

Old-style Nyquil formulation?

Is there any easy-to-find medication (in NYC) out there that's equivalent to the old Nyquil formulation, with the meth precursors and all? The old stuff helped me greatly with any minor illness or insomnia, while the new stuff doesn't really cut it. I guess I'd have to ask at the desk, but I don't even know what to ask for.

To Dose Or Not To Dose?

A twist on the question "is it better to let a cold run its course or is it better to medicate?". There have already been AskMeFi threads to this regard but I repeat the question because of something a doctor told me: if you dry up the runny nose/postnasal drainage, you prevent the mucus from going into your upper respiratory tract, thereby precluding the chest-clearing cough. Is this sound medicine? I've gone through four Kleenex just typing this question.

Should I claim my psychiatric meds on my insurance?

Here's the situation: I changed health insurance plans about two years ago ago. I have a good plan, based in Californa, that costs me about $250 a month. Since starting the coverage, my major medical expense - for about a year - have three monthly medications which I take for recently-diagnosed bipolar disorder. I have never claimed these expenses on my insurance, nor have I ever put any of my psychiatric costs on a claim. The reason is that I've been advised not to do this, especially with a bipolar diagnosis, since, in the words of my psychiatrist, "once that's on your record, you'll have a very hard time if you need to change insurance plans." (I should add that the diagnosis, while scary, and the resulting treatment, has changed my life so much for the better that I'd sell pretty much sell a kidney to keep paying for the meds, if I had to.)
