What's up with the legs?

I saw a guy today who had something going on with his legs that I was curious about. He was wearing shorts and had these sort of flesh-colored "sleeves" over both legs and what looked like some sort of therapeutic boot with a very thick sole or padding. He walked as though he had a prosthetic leg, but these were not like any prosthetics I have ever seen. He didn't have a cane, crutches or any other sort of assistance. Any ideas what this was all about?

Help me become Ob-Wan Gynobi.

I don’t know whether to be an doctor or go into an allied health field, like physician’s assistant or nurse-practitioner. I want to be in-between Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman and the guy who gets his door knocked on by the gangster late at night and then takes the bullets out on his kitchen table: a healthcare provider who serves a community and is able to really make connections with people.

What restrictions are there on mailing over-the-counter medicine from the United States to Japan?

I have relatives in Japan who want me to mail them some over-the-counter medicines--specifically, extra-strength Tylenol and Sudafed (the new kind, without pseudoephedrine.) Both are legal in Japan and would be for their personal use only. So how do I find out how much of each I can mail them at once?

What tests are early "screens" for cancer?

If we always hear, "They could've beaten his cancer if they'd only found it sooner," then why aren't we all getting screened for cancer long before the doctor orders the tests? What tests can I get now (MRI? CT?) to check for such things? I assume that money is the issue (isn't it always?), but if I'm willing to spend the cash, what do I need to do for me and for my family members?

Too much Lunesta?

Is anybody aware of potential risks in increasing my dose of Lunesta beyond 3 mg? I have found that 3 mg of Lunesta doesn't always (in fact, only half the time) help me to sleep. Since my pills come in 3 mg form, I'm thinking of splitting them and taking 4.5 mg. I'm not on any other medications and won't be drinking when I take these.

What happened to two-year old's thumb?

Two-year old caught his thumb in a door. After two hours, the child no longer complained of pain, was using thumb fine. No swelling, cuts, or outward signs of trauma.

Which allergy meds have gone generic or OTC since last year?

Seasonal allergy relief: I've read a bunch of the previous questions, but was wondering about allergy medicines that have gone prescription to over-the-counter or brand-name to generic since last spring. I know there's a generic Zyrtec now, but was wondering if there are any others that might be more affordable/available than they were last spring.

How do loratadine and diphenhydramine HCI work? Specifically, how is it that both can help control allergies, yet have different side effects? I'm particularly interested in how loratadine works without causing sleepiness, while a single 25 mg capsule of diphenhydramine is able to knock me out in a matter of minutes.

How do I find a good Psychiatrist in the Boise, Idaho area

How do I go about finding a good psychiatrist in the Boise Idaho area? I am a reasonably well-managed bipolar patient. I am not happy with the side effects of my mood stabilizer and am suspicious that depression is interfering with my life. I haven't seen a psychiatrist for about 3 years. My GP prescribes my medicines since I am reasonably well-managed. However, I just moved to the Boise/Nampa/Caldwell Idaho area and would like to start seeing a psychiatrist and seeing about trying something different. I was really lucky how I found my last psychiatrist through the recommendation of a counselor that I trusted. But I don't have any contacts in the area. Does anyone have a recommendation of a good psychiatrist in the Boise area? Or how have you/would you go about finding a good one? Thanks
