  • Is it safe to have painkillers for menstrual cramps?

    Aleve and all nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs reduce platelet function and hence increase your chances of bleeding. If you are bleeding heavily during your menstruation and if you develop a GI bleed due to Aleve, there’s a theoretical possibility you might not recognize it and could potentially lower your hemoglobin sufficiently to get dizzy or lightheaded from lowered blood pressure and anemia. Bleeding from below can be confused with a GI bleed, possibly. It’s only a theoretical risk but worth considering. Otherwise, there’s no other major reason why you can’t use Aleve or equivalent NSAID. READ MORE

  • My husband has frequent headaches due to work stress. What should we do?

    The obvious solution is to identify a stress-reduction strategy up to and including changing work. I understand that this is not always feasible or reasonable. However, headaches that are increasing in frequency or duration need to be evaluated immediately by a neurologist with headache experience. There might be a relationship of the headache to untreated blood pressure problems or to a metabolic issue. It should not be ignored! Kenneth D. Candido, M.D. READ MORE

  • My pain persists even after back surgery, why?

    A month is a relatively brief period of time to expect resolution of pinched nerve type pain particularly if the nerve was compressed for more than a few weeks. The blood supply to the nerve may have been compromised somewhat by the disc, and as such, will need more time to recover, possibly six months or longer. As the nerve's blood supply is restored following surgery (barring any severe scarring), the nerve typically responds by swelling, which can lead to additional pain. A combination of additional time, some modest physical therapy, and analgesic medications may help. Consult your operating surgeon for additional information. Kenneth D. Candido, M.D. READ MORE

  • Can pain cause depression in a person?

    Pain and depression may be closely linked; however, it should never be assumed that the depression is the result of pain. At times, depression is the primary condition and may exacerbate otherwise minor pain issues. The condition(s) should be evaluated independently; the pain by a pain management expert and the depression by a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist. Depression is a very serious issue and can flavor the attempts at modulating pain and therefore demands careful attention. Hope this helps. Good luck, best regards, KDC READ MORE

  • How can pain be managed in the elderly?

    The first step in evaluating pain from multiple, diverse sources is to conduct a personal medical interview followed by a comprehensive physical examination. The history and clinical examination are then used to construct a possible source for the pain which is then followed by suggesting or recommending treatment options. The entire process is one which is essential, as many pain conditions of the sort you are describing can be addressed using simple remedies which do not involve surgery or prolonged periods of convalescence. My humble suggestion is to have your family member schedule a visit and, in doing so, start the process of investigation so as not to further delay them from attaining a reduction in their pain while improving their quality of life. Let me know if you would like additional information or a recommendation as to how one might proceed under these circumstances. Thank you and best regards, Kenneth D. Candido, M.D. READ MORE

    After my doctors of 20 years all retired, I switched hospitals to IL Masonic. My new primary care doctor said I did not have to live with the pain and referred me to Dr. Candido. When I first saw him her could not touch my spine. Finally, at 92 years of age, I am relatively pain free. Dr. Candido is a miracle worker. He is kind, compassionate and a great bedside manner. Will be forever in his debt.
