Ask Dr. Oz: Post Op #19

Posted:

Audience member Yuri asks Dr. Oz about vertigo’s association with migraines and headaches. Vertigo is a specific type of dizziness, a major symptom of a balance disorder, and a form of hallucination where a sensation of the environment spinning around one develops. Migraine headaches (a neurological syndrome, usually affecting one half of the head) can cause vertigo.

Audience member Sandra went from day-work to a night-work shift and asks Dr. Oz how she can better adapt to the time change. Dr. Oz acknowledges that this is a hard task for the body to override, since our bodies’ several biological functions are regulated by melatonin (a chemical compound found in animals, plants, and microbes). Estrogen (steroid compounds that function as the primary female sex hormone regulating the reproductive system) is also negatively affected by the time change. Dr. Oz suggests that Sandra attempt to drastically change her sleeping habits and lifestyle, to provide her body sufficient rest to mimic a normal day and night.

An unnamed audience member has a father with neuropathy (a disorder of the motor, sensory, and autonomic nerves that connect the spinal cord to muscles, skin, and internal organs, causing weakness, numbness, tingling, and pain). She asks Dr. Oz if there is anything her father can do to improve his condition. Dr. Oz suggests that her father keep a low blood sugar count, control his weight, and get plenty of B vitamins and folic acid (also found in leafy vegetables, oranges, and legumes). Dr. Oz notes that the extreme end of correcting this problem would be surgery by a neurologist.
