Hi. Dr Rick here. I completed an Internal medicine internship in NYC and have two decades of clinical experience. How can I assist you today?

Expert:  Dr. Rick, MD replied 8 months ago.

Your wife is right: The safest course of action is to go to the ER and get checked out.

Could it be something simple like a 6th nerve palsy? Sure.

But it might be something much worse.

Better safe than sorry.

Make sense to you?

North to Dr. Says he ate some sugar and "all is well." Symptoms is too serve for that answer . Wife is going to step her foot on the 6th cranial and get an answer ... on the curving roads ...or increase life insurance...
Expert:  Dr. Rick, MD replied 8 months ago.

Us men can be obstinate at times....

Increasing life insurance seems like the best option at this point.

Perhaps he will see his primary care MD today??
