Shivering eyelids. An interesting case from practice.


One day my friend asked me a question. She knows I’m an ophthalmologist. She said she had a problem. This is the state when there is a periodic shake of the eyelids. This is a non-critical condition that goes by itself.
I told her not to do anything, less medication. I had that too It is on their own after a while, maybe a month will pass.
A few months later, my wife said that the same friend told her the following. That about depicted a tick age she went to another «good» a doctor. He prescribed her a lot of expensive drugs. She used them for a month and finally her TIC is gone. «What a good doctor he is,» she said.
Conclusion: with each drug the doctor receives interest and he earned well on it and also turned out to be a «good» doctor. So very often with other diseases.
Everything in the body has a cycle. One symptom gives way to another symptom. Taking medication, a person thinks that they have helped. But, in fact, just activity in one place of the body is replaced by activity in another place. That’s OK. Some drugs have nothing to do with it.
I remember in the 1960s and ‘ 70s when I wrote my thesis on diabetic retinopathy, all the leading ophthalmological journals wrote about the effectiveness of the Doxium in this disease. It turned out that this drug is almost useless.
The results of clinical trials of Tamiflu and Relenza occupy 175 thousand pages. Published in leading medical journals. It turned out that this drug is almost useless for the prevention of influenza.
So evidence-based medicine is not always evidence-based.
England bought this drug for almost a billion dollars.
So evidence-based medicine is not always evidence-based.
The same fate befell Nootropil.
It turned out that when you write really something new that does not fit in our minds, it is not published. Although you bring specific logic.
While this applies to fractal medicine.
