Avatar n tn I have lost over 17 pounds ( ok not such a bad thing, but not for a good reason), my back of my throat is swollen as well as my voice box, which are swollen quite badly. I cough to the extreme as to try and clear my throat.. to the point where I vomit, and my head feels like it is going to explode. I have had a Upper GI done and it came back no problems.. I think they need to do more tests and I am going to make sure they do................Oh and with this..
Avatar f tn 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.

Avatar f tn It is very ichy and my ankle is a little swollen and feels hot to the touch. The bite itself is tiny and has a slightly raised bump in the middle. Any ideas?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn Its been 4 months and I am still not well-at all. I have dizzeness, severe headaches and pain, and always feel like im under water or in a fog. Oh ya I stammer a lot and have memory loss and am so very tired and just wiped out. Sometimes I dont see things right. When will this all end? Can someone tell me what kind of meds works best for the pain in the head. I tried Vicodin but got tired of being nausea, Then I was on Butalbital and that was worse-didnt help the pain.
Avatar n tn 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?

596105 tn?1314583933 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.

Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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?
162948 tn?1205256292 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 :(.
Avatar n tn 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!
Avatar m tn How likely is it that it got into my body through the half-day-old cat scratches? They had stopped bleeding shortly after I got them. I don't want to go in and get the 7 rabies shots if there's no chance I'm infected. But if there's a small chance then it's worth it. Right now is bat mating season in northern Vietnam where I life and while most rabies comes from dogs, I have found studies showing northern Vietnamese bats can have multiple strains of rabies.
Avatar m tn 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.

Avatar f tn I quit after 25 years of chronic nail biting! I started a gluten free diet and have not had the urge or desire to bite my nails or cuticles since! I didn't file my nails to make them smoother and less tempting. There are several studies over the past 10 years that talk about the correlation between gluten intolerance and anxiety. Since anxiety is what chronic nail biting is considered I gave it a try as ridiculous as it sounds. I hope this helps someone.
748543 tn?1463449675 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.
748543 tn?1463449675 Hence your bite is dictating your posture. Ever wonder why your chiropractic adjustments don't hold for long? Of course we can exercise and be mindful of our posture. However long-term we see that this conflict will have its say. In my experience, examining both symptomatic and asymptomatic patients of my practice, I have found most often that even in asymptomatic patients the area of conflict lies within the spine; namely the cervical area.
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar dr m tn 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.

Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
