Gastroenterology Problem; For one month I have experienced a change in bowel motion and have experienced Abdominal Colic with gas and changes between Diarrhea and Constipation. Also, a change in stool consistency from normal to tiny round pellets. I had a stool examination and was told that I am experiencing undigested food. Now I have this gelatin like tissue with no smell, This is not mucus as I am an Anesthesiologist and can differentiate between gelatin like substance and mucus.My food intake is mostly fiber. I do not have Lactose Intolerance. I am in Iraq so good medical care here is very limited. Thank you for any assistance.
my girlfriend had a really bad UTI for about 3 weeks. Also, she has been bloated for 2 weeks with back pain. Her UTI was diagnosed by a medical assistant from her urine sample. However, the burning has gone away but bloating and discomfort have not.
Hi, I've been feeling unwell for a year now. I'm 26 years old, 5'8" and 175lbs. I've been suffering chronic fatigue, headaches, neck pain, tingling sensations of my right eye brow, generally unwell, shakes, weakness, poor concentration, brain fog and feeling feverish. I was under a little stress when I got it but haven't since and my symptoms have gotten worse. I've had blood tests and MRI of brain and cervical which came back normal. I've had 2 surgeries. First one in 2001 for appendicitis and in 2007 I had a hard silicone implant put in where the sternum head of my left pectoralis major should be because I was born with polands syndrome.
I have had two bouts of bad diarrhea followed by some passing of blood within the last year. Have had a virtual colonoscopy about eighteen months ago. My gp says i have significant raised calprotectin and this can either mean I have crowns or colitis - he says it can't be cancer. I have looked online and raised calprotectin can mean a cancer too - please could you advised as I am having to wait over a week for the speciaist to return. I am now worried I have cancer.
I had a HIV Rapid Test at the Emergency Room 20 days after unprotected sex and a HIV anitbody test 8 weeks and a day (57 days) and they both came back negative. What are my chances of being truly HIV negative?
I am on birth control (tricyclen) and am currently taking Augmentin for UTI. I began having some spotting mid cycle then my normal period while on the placebo week. I finish the Augmentin tomorrow and begin my new pill pack on Sunday. My doctor told me I wouldn't need a backup method while on Augmentin, I would only need one if I experienced nausea or diarrhea, which I have not.
My husband and I had sex this morning, no condoms.My period has ended and I begin my new pill pack on Sunday. What are the odds that my pill could have been affected by the Augmentin? Is it safe to say that a backup method wasn't needed? Will I be fully protected again once I start my new pill pack? Information on this subject seems to be so varied from person to person it's hard to understand.
having difficulty speaking. have troubles articulating thoughts into speech. concerned it may be onset to TIA or other symptoms or a more concerning problem. Interferes with my work and causes stress and anxiety. would like advice on tests, how to pursue tests, to see if I have a condition that can be treated medically. want to address the problem before it becomes more severe. leaves me feeling anxious, vulnerable and scared. especially when I am unable to speak up and defend myself.
I had sex 17 days ago. 2 months ago I did an egg donation and the hormones really took a toll on my body and my birth control wasn't helping. 3 days ago I stopped taking my birth control all together to get my period started (1 week before the sugar pill week). Do I need to worry about pregnancy even though the last time I had sex was 17 days ago? All the tests are negative.
