Customer Question
My husband age 80 with...
My husband age 80 with Parkinson's so on various medications has a upper jaw pain which woke him last night and he believes a cracked tooth. He took 3 Advil at 6am and feels less pain. We are in Rome and return tomorrow to NYC arriving 6pm. Can he fly safely? Should we alternate Tylenol/Advil for pain?

Hello Adrienne,
Thanks for putting up your question on Just Answer.
Yes, he can fly safely. Flying does increase the pressure inside the pulp chamber of the tooth and increases the pain as well, so yes again, you will need to alternate Tylenol and Advil.
The only problem is the "urinary issues" that you mention. If he has taken both previously without any problems, then yes go ahead.
Hope this answers your question. Feel free to contact me again for more information. Please leave a positive rating for me if this answer has helped you. I do not get credit for it otherwise.
Good Luck !
Regards,
Dr. Behere

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
