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?
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 am female, 31 years old, 5'10" tall, and about 330lbs. A co-worker of mine is "training" me on Crossfit, but I am not sure that it is exactly safe for someone of my weight. The first day out, he had me running up and down a hall, and then up four flights of stairs, and I could not complete it. I do not have days in between to rest, as he has me working out everyday, and by the third day, I could barely move (i.e. could hardly walk, get into bed, etc.) and he said this was a good thing. I am afraid if I keep doing this workout that I will suffer some serious medical problems. Bottom line, is Crossfit a safe exercise for people who are considered morbidly obese like myself?
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.
I started to develop a cold sore/ fever blister about a week and a half ago. It is now completely dried up, flat, no longer warm and feels just like the rest of my lip. it is only visible through the scar that it left. I recently engaged in sexual activity. is the scar of the cold sore contagious? did I pass it to my partner?
Extreme bloating, gas that won't pass, threw up Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, constipation to begin with, then diarrhea. Feel like I'm about to burst open. Been eating very little (a few spoonfuls of chicken noodle soup, oatmeal, canned pears) Very little fluid intake. Diagnosed years ago with Spastic Colon, IBS, Hiatal Hernia Have been taking medications (Bentyl, Prilosec, Compazine daily) for years but have never experienced anything this extreme. Have tried Tagament and Simethicone. They give a little relief for a little while, then I'm back to square one. Suggestions?
Hello, I have been taking topamax at 100mg each night to help stop very severe migraines and I all of sudden ran out of refills and the neurologist hasn’t sent in a refill in two weeks. I have started having random quick body jerks that happen all of a sudden with no warning when I am wide awake and I know that it is happening and can tell people after it stops that it happened. I am wondering if the quick body jerks could be a side effect of not having my topamax.
