First of all: This is not an answer related to your described medical condition. Therefore, I will not draw any conclusions regarding your condition. But, taking calcium carbonate containing antacids is very unlikley a cause for otoconia ("ear crystals") to form and/or grow. Actually, the formation of otoconia requires more than just a calcium carbonate ...

First, let's define retrograde amnesia carefully. You'll find many sources listing drugs that cause retrograde amnesia but they're using the term incorrectly. From http://www.human-memory.net/disorders_retrograde.html: Retrograde amnesia is a form of amnesia where someone is unable to recall events that occurred before the development of the amnesia, ...

Octonium\Otoliths (also known as ear crystals\rocks) are a natural part of the vestibular system. BPPV is caused by these otoliths coming loose, and so isn't directly related to calcium carbonate intake. BPPV can result from a head injury or simply occur among those who are older. A specific cause is often not found. The underlying mechanism involves a ...

The modern theory on the causation of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus is known as the twin cycle hypothesis . The twin cycle hypothesis of the etiology of type 2 diabetes. During long-term intake of more calories than are expended each day, any excess carbohydrate must undergo de novo lipogenesis, which particularly promotes fat accumulation in the liver. ...

Calcium carbonate from antacids does not appear as calcium carbonate in the ear (or brain). When you take antacids, the gastric acid converts calcium carbonate to calcium chloride. These effect is based on the chemical reaction CaCO3 + 2HCl → CaCl2 + H2O + CO2, in which hydrochloric acid and calcium carbonate, the base component, form water, carbon ...

According to human kinetics, the movements of hip muscles in hip joint are performed by a series of muscles. For example, when hip is doing external rotation (30° with the hip extended, 50° with the hip flexed), it's using the gluteal muscles including iliopsoas (combination of the psoas major and the iliacus at their inferior ends). According to Meridian ...

Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) represent a group of disorders involving the masticatory muscles, the temporomandibular joint and associated structures. Stress, age and gender are common risk factors for TMD. TMD is often characterised by aural symptoms such as tinnitus, otalgia, vertigo, otic fullness sensation, hyperacousia or hypoacousia. Current ...

"Normal" eyelid twitching can possibly be caused or be made worse by lack of sleep, or too much caffeine or stress. That information can be found unsourced on a lot of websites, including with such qualifiers as "many experts say". I couldn't find a single source - which doesn't mean it doesn't exist, or say that these things don't cause eyelid twitches. ...

Right lower quadrant pain is typically appendiceal or ovarian. It can also be salpingitis - which does last longer, or PCOS, depending on the duration of the symptoms, or cystic Lymphangioma. Finally, it could be a stone at the junction of the ureter and bladder. Generally when a patient (or person) is asking about a symptom, they should be able to answer ...

One word: dehydration. You spent a day out in the sun, exerting yourself, and probably didn't maintain your normal level of hydration. Consequently, you're mildly dehydrated (or, more properly, hypohydrated). Dehydration means a lower blood volume, which in turn means your heart has to beat faster to move the same volume of blood. Consequently, your heart ...

I think you're confused by what is meant as a genetic disease. A disease like Huntingdon's Chorea is a genetic disease because we know the genetics, and we know that it occurs due to mutation in an autosomal dominant gene so the chance of inheritance is 50% with almost 100% penetrance. Diseases like T2DM have a genetic basis so that we know some groups are ...

Type 2 diabetes is characterized by a combination of peripheral insulin resistance and inadequate insulin secretion by pancreatic beta cells. Insulin resistance, which has been attributed to elevated levels of free fatty acids and proinflammatory cytokines in plasma, leads to decreased glucose transport into muscle cells, elevated hepatic glucose ...

According to Emedicine medscape: Appreciate that EBV may trigger chronic fatigue, but it does not cause chronic fatigue. In their page on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: CFS is a biological illness, not a psychologic disorder. The exact pathogenesis is unknown.

"FQs have chelating properties against several metal ions (e.g., calcium, magnesium, aluminum), and have been known to cause direct toxicity to type 1 collagen synthesis and promote collagen degradation" We aren't for certain as to why FQ's have this effect yet, but this fact would be the leading candidate in my opinion as to why.

It sounds like as you say air is being forced under pressure into one of the paranasal sinuses and being trapped by a one way valve similar to pneumosinus dilatans. But in your case the valve breaks down and lets the air release. Perhaps you shouldn't blow so hard, or try blowing one nostril at a time so that the pressure isn't so great.

There are three core factors that contribute to eye twitching: caffeine consumption, stress, and fatigue. If you’ve been noticing that your sleep has been disturbed or if you haven’t been getting enough of zzz time, you may expect daytime tiredness along with eye twitching. So if your eyelids have been bothering you lately, it may be wise to look at your ...

The immediate issue comes to my mind is appendix. However, you have defined a larger area whereas this pain is somewhere around McBurney's point. But then you say that it's a normal USG! The area you are defining is typical for appendicitis. And if this is not the problem, the causes may range from pelvic inflammatory conditions (radiating there) to ...
