I think they need to do more tests and I am going to make sure they do................Oh and with this..
Most people do not know this, but you are more likely to get rabies from a cat bite than a dog bite. The reason why is simple -- people take precautions around dogs they do not know but do not as readily think of doing that for cats.

It sounds like a broken jaw, yes, but it could also be a snake/animal bite to the head or face (this possibility is remote). Is her face swollen? Is she having trouble breathing at all? Please understand, I know you want to help your cat, but you must take this animal to a vet, even if that means you eat ramen noodles for a few days or go without some things - she's depending on you to care for her.
A few days ago I noticed a sore, reddish swollen lump on my left inner thigh, right along my bikini line. It has since gotten larger (about the size of a nickel, and more elongated now). It only feels sore if I press on it or rub against it. It seems like a soft lump that moves around with the skin. Last night I applied a warm washcloth to it for about 30 minutes, which made it feel better. Could this be a swollen lymph node, or maybe an ingrown hair?

A cat bite that causes a swollen area is potentially very very serious. Whether you or your friend have money or not, this requires the ER. I'm sorry, I know that's not what you want to hear. This happened to a friend of mine-cat bit her finger very deep, within a few hours her finger began to swell. She went to the ER, and they told her that if she'd waited she might have lost her finger. I am not playing, this is no joke. The ER will take payments. She really needs to go.

From time to time, I have had to see a doctor for neck stiffness and pain and would usually feel better after about a week off work and medication. Starting in October or November of 2006, I started having additional and more severe symptoms that included severe limitation in range of motion, extreme pain when attempting to move my neck. It was worse when attempting to touch ear to shoulder, where there is almost zero range.
he told me not to ejaculate 3 or 4 days before the 1st test, then to do the test again 3 days later, and to test it again 3 days after and immediately after having sex. this way he will be able to compare the results. i have no problem getting an erection and feel no pain whatsoever during ejaculation. my dr says that this is the first time he hears of such a case. people who get sperm in their blood experience pain when it comes out and have problems getting an erection, he says.
I have 8 days to my 1st beta test after my ET on Aug 12. Out of 11 mature eggs only 4 fert after icsi and only 1 viable embryo. I too had OHSS after egg retrieval and am really hoping that this works. So far no signs of period coming so keeping fingers crossed. Does anyone know how many days after ET a period will come if it didn't work?
now am scared because I see that a lot of women have not been able to conceive after the mirena IUD removal... pls help!!! I have had it for 18 months and after all the crazy stories, I am thinking of having it removed :(.
I started feeling sick every morning (gagging but not vomiting) starting at about 10 days after the procedure. I was confirmed pregnant on day 14 after the procedure by blood test. I had the symptoms before I was confirmed positive and I also thought they were in my head, but there could be more to it. I had a failed IUI a few months before and I did not have any symptoms at all. Good luck!
Here's what I think. You need to separate your symptoms into BFB and AFB--Before Flea Bite and After Flea Bite--because I really think you contracted something when the flea bit you and then you scratched the bite immediately afterwared. In all likelihood, you rubbed feces and other nasty material into the open wound.
i am glad to have hear your friend is doing better. NYgirl - onlything worse than a cat bite is a human bite surprised you didn't loose a finger yourself you rascal.
The average person swallows 2000 times a day, causing the upper and lower teeth to come together and push against the skull. People who have a poorly aligned bite or missing teeth can have related problems, such as frequent headaches or Sleep disorders, because their Jaw muscles must work harder to bring the teeth together, straining the surrounding muscles." a simple Google search for TMD would have provided this author with a wealth of informative sources regarding her subject.
I'm so sorry about your cat. Just try not to touch the swollen areas too much. She is purring because she is probably in pain or still a bit scared. Cats not only purr when they're contempt but also when they're in pain. That jaw looks pretty messed up and I can tell it is fractured. There is no way you can get that fixed by yourself, and if you leave her be, the jaw will not fix itself and she will always have problems eating. Have you tried googling vets in your area? Perhaps a vet tech?
But after each of her two pregnancies, her UARS symptoms were greatly exaggerated. After our first son, she had severe postpartum depression for almost a year. Only after she lost her entire pregnancy weight did she feel back to normal. After our second son was born, for four months she was severely lightheaded and dizzy, to the point of not being able to function properly. She saw a number of doctors and even had to go to the Emergency Room because one doctor thought she was having a stroke.
First time it happened, I thought I had received a spider bite. I went to the doctor, my finger was swollen, blue and painful. The doctor said it happens with age as the vessels begin to thin. I have searched this condition, and it may not apply to anyone here by try looking up Raynaud's Phenomenon. The condition somewhat describes me and some of you. It is causes by certain medications, arthritis and usually brought on by cold or stress.

I started about a year ago with what felt like a mosquito bite on my head. It was an itchy bump. Before I knew it I had lumps all over my head that eventually turned into swelling on my forehead, eyes, lips and ears. Eventually it worked its way down my body and turned into hives. The doctors say its an allergy but can't figure out what to. Prednisone finally took the swelling away. But recently it started again, but much milder than before and mainly swollen bumps on the forehead.
The heat and the steam will loosen the mucus in your nose and nasal cavity. After a minute or so in the shower, press your right nostril closed with your right index finger, and very, very, very gently and slowly blow out the open left nostril, into your hands. Rinse the hands off, then close the left nostril with your left finger and blow out the open right nostril. Wash off your hands with soap.
I've had swollen eye lids, the soles of my feet will be hot to the touch and I am unable to walk from the pain, swollen finger tips, swollen nostril, my lip will look like I was punched in the face. The docs can't figure it out. Also, I have had a recent weight gain of 30lbs(Aug.125 - Dec. 155). I have chronic fatigue. I had blood work done last week, and the results are low potassium, low creatinine, and low T4 (thyroid). I am trying to figure out what's wrong with me.
Did the lesion fell like burning, itchy, sore? Or not? For how long? Did it hurt when you moved your finger? Or not? Did your finger get swollen?or not? For how long? Has it spread to other fingers? Has it changed color? What makes it worst? (pain, etc.) What makes it better? Where did you first see it? (knuckles, between knuckles, next to the nail or away, etc) Is it like below the skin, above the skin? What medication have you used in the past 6 months?
It goes away after 2-5 seconds, and usually happens only once during the meal, with the first bite or two. I can be eating soft or hard foods, doesn't matter. I can hold my head still or look down at my plate and it doesn't matter. I don't feel it any other time at all, only when I chew something. I don't have any other symptoms. I'm not on any type of medications. I had a stapedectomy 2 years ago to correct hearing in my right ear.
