"I can fix anything with a small motor. I like being able to help other people do that, too!"

Ron, ASE Certified Technician
Expert on JustAnswer since 2007

"I got into medicine in order to help people and JustAnswer allows me to help so many more people, on a much larger scale. I would not have been to help such a varied group of patients by simply working in a single hospital over the years. The customers on JA are simply the best!"

Dr. Muneeb Ali, Doctor
Expert on JustAnswer since 2009

"Computers and tech are easy for me and JustAnswer gives me the opportunity to make it easy for others. It makes me really happy to get someone's computer working again."

Viet, Computer Technician
Expert on JustAnswer since 2010

"I became an attorney to help people. Now that I am retired I can continue that calling by helping JustAnswer customers find the information that they need."

Ely, Counselor at Law
Expert on JustAnswer since 2007

"I enjoy the variety of questions and being able to do it from anywhere in the world. I have done it from about 20 states, several foreign countries, Jamaica, Mexico and others. I enjoy the ability to work and have freedom to travel. I appreciate the staff at JA they have really helped the experts do a better job with the dashboard and other related items."

Ray, Lawyer
Expert on JustAnswer since 2008

"I became an attorney to help people. Now that I am retired I can continue that calling by helping JustAnswer customers find the information that they need."

Ely, Counselor at Law
Expert on JustAnswer since 2007

"I love JustAnswer because I enjoy leveling the field for the little guy. My goal with each of my customers is to not only explain the law, but also provide a solution to their problem. To be able to do that at an affordable price is as fulfilling to me as I hope it is to my customers."

Richard, Lawyer
Expert on JustAnswer since 2009

"I really like the fact that I learn something new about the law every day. I have learned so much by researching the answers to the questions. I really feel JA has made me a better lawyer."

Loren, Attorney
Expert on JustAnswer since 2009

"Giving assistance to people when they need it is really fulfilling. So many times we can fix stuff easily and save the customer lots of money, too."

Mike V., Nissan Technician
Expert on JustAnswer since 2009

"I can fix anything with a small motor. I like being able to help other people do that, too!"

Ron, ASE Certified Technician
Expert on JustAnswer since 2007

"Working on JustAnswer has been a life changing experience for me, I get to do what I love, providing expert help to people with their car problems across the globe."

Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician
Expert on JustAnswer since 2010

"I love working on JustAnswer and cannot name just one thing I enjoy the most, the flexibility, the satisfaction of a customer saying that I was very helpful, the extra income for my family, the teamwork from other Experts on the site, it truly is a great site and I'm lucky to be a part of it. I love helping people on JustAnswer for the simple reason that in the automotive world there is so much misinformation on the web that costs customers hundreds if not thousands of unnecessary dollars, that I can inform them properly with factory info and real world hands on experience and lead them in the right direction, if not help fix the issues at hand, and you cannot put a value on that."

Lou P., Master Technician
Expert on JustAnswer since

"I love getting to help people every day, at any hour! People from all over the world come to me with questions, seeking advice! Not everyone has access to doctors who are genuinely interested in listening and helping, and that's what I love most! I love being a sounding board for worries or questions or curious minds!"

drcaplan, Board Certified Physician
Expert on JustAnswer since 2013

"JustAnswer is a life changer for me. It gives me the opportunity to work anytime of my choice. JA platform is always evolving and thus there are continuous learning opportunities. JustAnswer connects global audience with global workers. JA makes it possible to use my skills, experience and knowledge to help people from diverse communities and cultures. I am so happy when somebody mentions that my answer prevented an ER or urgent care visit or my online diagnosis was confirmed by their doctor. JustAnswer has given me money, learning opportunities, professional recognition and satisfaction, and many new friends and colleagues."

Dr. Arun Phophalia, Surgeon
Expert on JustAnswer since 2007

"I love working with people on JustAnswer because I get to spend a lot of time with each person and really get to the bottom of the question."

Dr. K, Board Certified OB/GYN
Expert on JustAnswer since 2012

"I got into medicine in order to help people and JustAnswer allows me to help so many more people, on a much larger scale. I would not have been to help such a varied group of patients by simply working in a single hospital over the years. The customers on JA are simply the best!"

Dr. Muneeb Ali, Doctor
Expert on JustAnswer since 2009

"Since the invention of the internet, the world became a much smaller place. It is a privilege to be part of the JustAnswer team since it allows me to help and guide clients anywhere in the world, especially when they are in a remote area without a veterinarian. The joy to be able to assist people (pet owners, animal lovers) whenever possible and provide my advice and support to the best of my knowledge is one of the most fulfilling experiences I have ever felt as a veterinarian."

Dr. Peter, Veterinarian
Expert on JustAnswer since 2009

"JustAnswer provides me with a unique opportunity to help a large number of people and the pets they love. Trying to help pet owners with whatever issues or concerns they might have is tremendously rewarding and satisfying on many levels."

Dr. Deb, Veterinarian
Expert on JustAnswer since 2011

"When people who are worried about their pets come to JustAnswer I think of how much my dog Ilsa means to me. Then I give my best answer, by telling concerned pet owners what I would do in their situation for my own beloved pets."

Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian
Expert on JustAnswer since 2008

"As a dedicated small animal vet I have spent my whole career helping people with their much loved pet's health problems and I am very glad of the opportunity JustAnswer gives me to continue to do so online. But it is not all one sided, researching the answers I give helps keep me up to date and abreast of the latest developments in my field."

Dr. Scott Nimmo, Veterinarian
Expert on JustAnswer since 2008

"Working on JustAnswer has granted me the pleasure of meeting and working with some truly awesome people. I genuinely enjoy assisting each of my customers, with each of their individual needs. I strive to make customer satisfaction my number one priority. It is very rewarding, just knowing that I have personally helped someone who relied upon me, to lead them in the right direction."

Donald, Small Engine Technician
Expert on JustAnswer since 2012

"I really enjoy helping people particularly when they are in a bind, like the guy in Alaska with no heat, it's 30 below and the nearest repair guy is 200 miles away by plane!"

Rick, HVAC Supervisor
Expert on JustAnswer since 2005

"As an expert in the appliance category I get to help customers save money on unnecessary service calls and overpriced parts which for me makes being a member of the JustAnswer community a very rewarding experience."

Joel Swenson, Owner, Scott's Appliance Repair
Expert on JustAnswer since 2015

"I enjoy the freedom and the unrestricted earning potential working on JA provides. Mostly I enjoy knowing that my help provides customers an alternative solution to an expensive appliance repair and empowers them to learn and solve a problem that they would not likely be able to solve on their own!"

Kelly, Appliance Technician
Expert on JustAnswer since 2008

"For me, nothing is more rewarding than the satisfaction you get from helping people and that is why I'm here. JustAnswer is not just a platform of simple questions and answers but it's more about caring, sharing, learning, laughing, loving and helping each other. JustAnswer is so rewarding and the best!"

Ashik, Mac Technician
Expert on JustAnswer since 2009

"Computers and tech are easy for me and JustAnswer gives me the opportunity to make it easy for others. It makes me really happy to get someone's computer working again."

Viet, Computer Technician
Expert on JustAnswer since 2010

"It's so rewarding to help customers to fix their computer problems and go beyond their expectations. Apart from the challenge for me (which I like a lot), I love it when I can "feel" their smile when we finish the session, which started out with a sad face for the customer. JustAnswer is a win-win situation for everyone involved!"

Lorenz Vauck, Computer Expert
Expert on JustAnswer since 2014

"Knowing that my knowledge and expertise can help others with their computer problems fulfills me every day. JustAnswer gives me a way to transform frustration into satisfaction, and I am sure my customers appreciate it very much!"

IT Miro, Computer Scientist
Expert on JustAnswer since 2010

"It is truly gratifying to help customers discover and learn about their fine art and objects. I feel so fortunate that I can share my education, experience and earned credentials to provide customers with an honest, professional and informed answer. I am thankful and fortunate to be an integral member of a community comprised of caring, professional, accredited experts who provide superior individual attention to the thousands of people around the globe who come to Justanswer for help on a daily basis."

Nora, Accredited Appraiser
Expert on JustAnswer since 2012

"Working at JustAnswer has allowed me to earn a living from my home. I aquired a rare disease that made it impossible to work in the public any longer, this job has allowed me to continue earning my living and maintain my self sufficiency. I was thrilled to find this site. Those in charge of the site have been wonderful to work with."

Glenda B., Antiques Appraiser
Expert on JustAnswer since

"We all love discovering the details and value of our antique treasures and collectibles, and I love being able to provide that for customers. The JustAnswer format makes it so easy and confidential for them, too. There's no need to bring an item anywhere and no concerns about the expertise or honest opinion, say, of a local pawnbroker or antique dealer. Customers really enjoy getting an accurate, unbiased and detailed evaluation -and in the privacy and convenience of their home."

Robert S., Accredited Appraiser
Expert on JustAnswer since 2011

"I enjoy the experience of growing as an appraiser of a large variety of treasures. Each question asked is an opportunity to draw on my reserve of knowledge and experience or learn through researching in a new field. I find it very satisfying when I can give accurate history and value to solve mysteries for my customers."

Legal Opinion Regarding Mexican Immigration

I wish I had made this connection before I took my cat to the vet!

"The response to my questions was immediate and the phone consultation with Dr. Lori allowed me to have all my questions answered. Going forward, I knew what course to take concerning my cat's health, and felt much more confident in her explanation than I did the vet that I had taken my cat to previously. I wholeheartedly recommend JustAnswer if you don't know where to turn or what to ask. Dr. Lori was very knowledgeable and kind. Thank you."

A Revolution in Accessing Quality Professional Help

"I used to be frustrated when I needed a legal opinion. I'd have to make an appointment, wait several days and then pay a ton of money for a simple question. With JustAnswer I get to speak with a highly knowledgeable attorney for a fee that I can afford. There's nothing else like it."

Hi,I had protected sex(used a latex condom) on the 27 of April,2017.The lady told me she tested positive for Hiv after two weeks.Fear and anxiety moved me to immediately take a rapid test of the 9 of may and it was negative.I took another test on 29 of May and the result was still negative.I took a Pcr rna viral load test on 20 of June and it was was saying no rna dectected.I took another test at week 8,week 10 and week 12(84 days) and the result is still negative.My major worry is that while the tests all come out negative i now had bad flu and milky like phlegm after 12 weeks.My doctor told me i had a throat infection but i am worried since i have never had white milky like sputum before.My doctor told me not no worry coz the pcr rna test which detects for the actual virus is not present in my blood.Do i still need to do further tests for hiv after 12 weeks?
JA: Is this your first time reaching out for information about this?
Customer: yes
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I have been okey apart from the fear and anxiety after i was told the lady tested positive.I spent sleepless nights and developed complications such as my bp going up to 142/92 from my normal 120/72.

Hello and welcome to justanswer,I shall be consulting you today.I have reviewed your question.With all the tests that you had HIV is IMPOSSIBLE.So you should not be worried at all.The sore throat and milky sputum is not related to HIV so you should not be concerned about it.You do not require any further testing.I hope this helps.If you have any queries feel free to ask.I would really appreciate a positive 5 star rating for this,you can rate by simply clicking on the stars on top left of this thread,you can ask any follow up questions even after rating this positively.Thank you

My 82 years old mother was trying to open a sliding window which was sticky, and she pushed it too hard and caused pain in her side ribs, possible nerve pian. She can not stand and walk because is too painful, but fine when lay down in bed, even eating reading in bed, no problem. Otherwise she's in good health. What should she do to help ease the pain? She say the pain is tortures when getting up to use the bathroom! Thanks
JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?
Customer: A couple of days only, not better
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No, she just had physical, everything was normal

10 hours ago

Hi,Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your mother. There are a couple of possibilities, the first and the more likely one is that she could have developed a severe muscle spasm or strain in the side. This would cause the severe pain on movement and it can be treated with the help of various measures. The first one is that you should start giving her an increased amount of plain water along with electrolyte rich fluids like gatorade which can correct electrolyte imbalances. Also start applying heat on the area for 10-15 minutes at a time and for upto 5 times a day. Yet another thing which can be tried is that you should start applying OTC capsiacin gel on the area. Also give her OTC ibuprofen 400 mg thrice a day. If that does not work then give her muscle relaxants like flexeril or tinazidine which would need a prescription from your doctor.If theses dont work then it is possible that she may have developed compression of the nerves in the area. This would be diagnosed on a clinical examination and also with the help of a NCS test. This would need intercostal injections to numb the nerve or even use drugs like lyrica or neurontin.Do you have any more questions?Please leave a POSITIVE rating by clicking on the stars above, until you do i am not compensated for my time. You can continue to ask follow-up questions even after the POSITIVE rating.

stem cell therapy: is it risky?
JA: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?
Customer: NO i had a transverse myelitis
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: yes but i first would like to know if stem cell therapy can work or not

10 hours ago

Hi,Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Actually stem cell therapy is a treatment which is still in its infancy in regards to treating spinal cord disease including tranverse myelitis. There are a few studies which showed its benefit in treating neurological damage caused by transverse myelitis HOWEVER even those studies recommended that large scale trials be conducted before a conclusion can be drawn in regards to treating transverse myelitis. So basially more studies are needed before stem cells can be implemented on a regular basis in patients.Now whether these therapies are safe or not, there are some side effects which have developed in trial patients such as development of tumor cells in some cases. The following side effects have also been seen when they have been used in various disorders,InfectionsBleedingAnemiaGraft vs host diseaseVeno occlusive diseaseHHair lossSkin rashesInflammation of the parotid glandEngraftment syndromeCapillary leak syndromeLung fibrosisKidney diseaseNeuropathiesGraft failureThyroid diseasesAnd development of new tumors.Do you have any more questions?Please leave a POSITIVE rating by clicking on the stars above, until you do i am not compensated for my time.

Hello, I have been feeling for 3 days with a sore throat, wheezing breath and a lot of coughing. The odd thing is that my body temperature is close to hypothermia (35.2C - 35.5C with multiple measurements in the mouth). There has been a heat wave, so this all seems very paradoxical. The symptoms resemble pneumonia as far as my medical knowledge goes. I feel actually too warm and thought I was having a fever.
JA: How long have you had the symptoms? Do you have a fever?
Customer: No, the opposite, but it feels like a fever. I am close to hypothermia, but have not been exposed too cold. I has been very warm here.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I am still experiencing trauma because of divorce and separation from my child (medically established trauma). I have been under severe stress for over a year. I also suffer from insomnia, with 3 hours of sleep on average for the last week

Hi,Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Actually usually a choke hold would not cause lasting damage to the neck vessels unless there was already underlying issues with the vessels. Pulsations in the veins by themselves does not mean that there is damage to the vessel.However if there is visible swelling of the neck and there is pain in the throat as well that means that you SHOULD get the area evaluated. Sometimes after trauma to the neck the vessels in the neck may become dilated or develop aneurysms in some rare cases. This would be diagnosed on the basis of a simple clinical examination and a doppler ultrasound of the region which can look at the vessels. The pulsating alone can be because of a transient rise in blood pressure or even due to stress however and that is why it is possible that you dont have any serious issue but rather an increase in the blood pressure which is causing the pulsations.At the same time the numbness in the hands IF accompanied by pain in the arms or the hands could be indicative of compression of nerve sin the cervical spine and it can be diagnosed with a simple xray of the region and then treated with physiotherapy etc.If the throat is feeling swollen and there is obvious swelling in the region, then get it evaluated. if there is no obvious swelling and you dont have symptoms like dizziness, lightheadedness etc, then it is possible that the muscles in the region are mildly inflammed because of the trauma from the choke hold and using OTC ibuprofen at a dose of 400 mg thrice daily for 3-4 days would be effective.Do you have any more questions?Please leave a POSITIVE rating by clicking on the stars above, until you do i am not compensated for my time.

Can I take 10 mg of Valium and 10-325 of Norco to get off 2700 mg. Of gabapentin.

11 hours ago

Hi,Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Actually the simple answer to this question is that YES you can use benzodiazepines in a lower dose to try and wean yourself off gabapentin. Usually this should be done while the dose of gabapentin is being tapered down, however the process would be slow. You should NOT stop gabapentin all of a sudden and start using valium at the same time. The reason being that while valium would control some of the withdrawal symptoms there is STILL a possibility that you can experience severe withdrawal symptoms. It would be better if you started to decrease the dose of gabapentin by 100-200 mg every 2-3 days until you wean yourself off in the next few weeks. You can keep the valium on hand and start using a low dose when you experience any withdrawal symptoms OR you can start with a low dose of valium at 2 mg a day and slowly build the dose while the gabapentin is being reduced.The norco can be kept on hand for situations where you experience pain and the valium is not working but i would not recommend that you use both valium and norco regularly as that can lead to you become dependent on both or one of the drugs. Try to taper off gabapentin and use valium at the same time to help in the tapering process.But to simply answer your question, YES they can be used to wean off gabapentin.Do you have any more questions?Please leave a POSITIVE rating by clicking on the stars above, until you do i am not compensated for my time.
