I had my prostate examined today and the Urologist feels no prostatitis. My urine is clean, but they did send it out for a culture. I have been having chills without fever for weeks and some tingling in my feet. I had a comprehensive blood exam and the only test that was a little low was the lymphocytes at 800. It seems I could have an infection somewhere, or the medications I have taken in the last 4 weeks, off and on, Bactrim, Dexilant, Antivan, Advil, Tylenol, a muscle relaxer, and a lot of supplements. My lymphocytes have always been on the low end, but never below the normal. How does anxiety play a part in all this?
Hello, My son is 3 years and 4 months old. Since the age of 1 he has very yellowy skin. I know he does not have jaundice (as no yellowing of eyes) but what I do know is that by having only 3 little pieces of sweetcorn or 3 peas his skin goes yellow. I can understand that if you have excess carotene in your diet this can happen which is carotenemia. But he does not. Only with a minimal amount he gets this - what could this be? He has hypermobility and allergies.
My girlfriend has got multiple problems. She thinks that there's something wrong going on with her, but when we went for a check up like ECG and ECO everything was normal. She's in depression that she will die. Sometimes her heart beats quite fast. Sometimes She feels quite shocked. She also has gas problem. She also tells me that her chest feels like very warm sometimes. But she never experiences any pain or anything like that. Her breath is sometimes abnormal. She cries a lot.
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 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?
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've had diarrhea most of the afternoon and night with app. 37.6 fever. I think I went to the bathroom over 20 times. Today I feel better, the fever dropped to 36.8 and sometimes 37 and I went to the bathroom 2 times only. I went to the doctor (I'm in Uganda on mission) they did a blood test and stool analysis and told me its a bacterial infection (they didn't assert which bacteria as the test is generic) they prescribed Levoday 500mg 1 tablet per day for 5 days. I avoid taking antibiotics if not absolutely necessary so I wanted to check whether I need to take them, or should I wait a while to see if things are going to be resolved without antibiotics.
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?
