    Question:   I am 42 years old and had a partial hysterectomy in 1998. I still go through ovulation, and experience soreness and tenderness in the lower stomach. I would like to know what happens to the eggs that my ovaries produce? Where do they go? I thought that when you menstruate, the unfertilized egg gets discharged. Now that I no longer menstruate, what happens to the eggs?    Dr. Ganiat's Answer


    Question:   One week ago, I began experiencing some numbness in my left foot and lower leg, even after taking anti-inflammatory pills. During this time, I also had numbness in my right arm and the right side of my face. For the last month, I have frequently gone through vertigo. I can't look at roller coasters or ferris wheels. I've even been noticing it when I am a passenger in a car, but not while driving. I know that these can be symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis. Any other possibilities?    Dr. Ganiat's Answer


    Question:   I've been feeling nausea for about 2 months now. My doctor gave me Prevacid to take. At first, it helped a little but now it's all coming back. He suggested that I do an ultrasound on my gallbladder. I don't feel any kind of pains and never actually vomited. What could possibly be the problem?    Dr. Ganiat's Answer
