I am 19 week pregnant and before I became pregnant I had an MRI which showed a white spot on my brain and the doctor said he would not worry about it because it has no mass but I was suffering from major migraines! Now I have been having a really bad pain in my head which feels like an electrocuting muscle pulling pain, it is not a mugrainr, when I move my head it hurts like I'm pulling a muscle and the top and behind my eye really hurts! I have trouble sleeping t night because when I put my head Down on pillow one side of my head goes numb and tingly and feels like blood is rushing to it! I'm starting to really worry. I also get a hot numb feeling in the left back side if my tongue.
Dear Doctor, Recently I read about how rabies can incubate silently in animals and humans and it was traumatizing information. Particularly that it can incubate in humans for years. Since, I've been having obsessive compulsive thoughts about being rabid that I cannot shake off. I have played and dealt with many cats growing up, with many of them living outside of our house in a green, mountainous area. Although I can not recall any cat showing even minor symptoms of being rabid, I cannot help but worry that I somehow caught the disease silently from a carrier and it is incubating inside of me. The internet sources state that the virus can be transmitted if it is incubating inside of the cat and it can be in the salivary glands with no noticeable symptoms. I have not been bitten by cats outside of playful interactions and never punctured the skin, however I worry that maybe a contaminated hand of mine could have rubbed my eye and I could've caught the disease or that the virus could have made its way through my skin from a hard playful bite.?
Also, is there a test I can do to put this issue behind me and get my mind to ease??
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 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.

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.
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.
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.
