gastroenteritis

I found out that my Wbc and my rbc both are normal, in fact everything about my blood work was normal. The only thing that was different was my platelets were at 115,000. The Dr. Said he is having me take another test to check my platelets in 3 weeks. I show no real signs of fatigue or anything else, so someone ease my mind please!!

I took blood tests during those days and all my WBC were high including Neutrophils which had never happened to me even with the worst flu or pulmonary infection. liver ALT were high too. two months after I took the EMG. in May my arms started to "crunch" on themselves in a similar shape to my aunt's arm who's had brain ischemia. especially the left arm but overall it was symmetrical. then all that started to regress and it started to get my heart, it lasted for about a month.
I'm curious. I've seen alot of people using celexa complain of fatigue and weight gain which can be typical of some SSRIs. I've noticed that several people have had a drop in T4 while on celexa (TSH/T4 checked prior to initiating antidepressant therapy). Is there any literature out there on this? Can you offer some enlightenment? Thank you.
and was bit by fleas too. At that time CBC showed anemia, high wbc and high esr (31) I had severe muscular weakness, no pain, no fever, for about a week, I slept for a whole weak till I recovered. all together it lasted a couple of months maybe.
For the last 6 months I have been getting tearing (look like paper cuts) in my vaginal area (1/4 to 1/2 inch long). I get the tears at least once or twice a week and they last from 2-4 days, go away for a few days and then come back. They continue to occur in the same locations; 1. Inside the vaginal lips on the sides almost always in the crease (between the labia minora and majora?) 2. Between the anus and vaginal opening (perineum) 3. Above the clitoris in the "hood" area.
also then it had followed to gastroenteritis, high ESR and WBC. if you noticed they just posted a new discussion about unexplained dizziness, nausea, fainting. there was one almost identical a few hours ago. is there anything going on with your vision? did you take full blood count, ESR, liver function tests? self-test with a simple neurological test, the Romberg's test, look it up on Youtube.
67 She seemed most concerned about those results, but he also has high RBC, PLT and ALB and low MCH, NEU, and AMYL. She prescribed Baytril and metronidazole. She thought maybe he has hemorrhagic gastroenteritis because of the high HCT, but he hasn't had any bloody diarrhea or anything else that would indicate HGE. Does anyone know what could be wrong with him? I plan on calling back tomorrow when his regular holistic vet is there, to ask what she thinks of the results.
I recently suffered from acute gastroenteritis. My WBC was dangerously high during the infection. Doctor suggested to get a CBC done after things get normal.

Been in hospital for week. No relief and now has gastroenteritis from all the steroids and NSAIDS. Back to the ER and treated with viscous lidocaine and mylanta to numb stomach. This actually helped a little with stomach. I've stopped the neurontin, but have continued the topamax once daily. Now we are taking Prilosec and mylanta. This has changed my entire families life for exactly one month. It's been a living nightmare that seems as though it will never end.

( I am freaking out on my lymph nodes because the last time I got a lymph node is only when Im younger. I also have a very weak immune system where I easily catch colds/flu. Why is my lymph nodes suddenly popping out now? Could stress making my immune system more weaker than ever?? Im sorry for the long story but I just have to let this out my chest.

On Thursday had to take one of them to the vet's office, he was vomiting, no appetite and sad. Dr. tested for parvo (negative) CBC with high wbc (33)no fever. He said it was a bacterial gastroenteritis, prescribed pepcid and cephalexin, he died yesterday :'( Today my other pup is showing the same symptoms, but I can't afford the vet again. I'm going crazy here... any advice please???
I went to the doctor who prescribed tobramycin and started taking this thinking it may be bacterial in nature but it did not seem to help. I also started noticing and itching in my urethra shortly after the eye became red and swollen. The following day I noticed that I had quite painful dysuria and slight meatitis possibly a small clear discharge. Around day 6 (symptoms peaked) my right eye also started to get infected with the virus but not to the same extent.

A little background story about myself. I'm 23 years old and I'm 5'8 and 120 lbs, so skinny and pretty active(although not so much now). I haven't had any medical problems or any health issues in the past, ever. *knock on wood*. So about 4 months ago, in October of 2011.
Dear RF: The biopsies of my small bowel showed a moderate amount of eosinophils and gastritis. (Nothing else) The Gastro is now doing blood work, WBC & Diff) and a stain for mast cells? Anyway, I think the finding is interesting since I was very ill 12 years ago with eosinophilic cystitis. Anyway, my questions are: My calcium and phosphate blood level is high, and the Gastro implied this meant "something" related to the diarrhea, although he was kinda vague.
Hello, I'm a 39 y.o. slightly overweight female who has suffered with G.I. problems for as long as I can remember. During my younger years, belly aches, then BM/diarrhea, at times accompanied by vomiting. At this age, here are the specifics: (diagnosed w/IBS - I don't believe it)I have one BM daily (no constipation), but at night, past number of yrs., 3-4x wk., I am wakened by sharp stabbing on & off cramps middle and lower, mostly towards left-side.
, antibiotics, almost killed me and was much worse than the cause), I had three weeks of gastroenteritis (my daughter then caught it and had it for three weeks also but she's only 23). I left it untreated because I was in the middle of a serious family crisis and was quite upset, not eating right, sleeping poorly, stopped exercising and a few other very unhealthy things I have since stopped.
sounds nasty, clean the litter box now and then, I have liver problems and have a cat, and I don't have a problem with her. Never heard of ammonia causing irritation of the liver but it would nauseate me.
There is also hypereosinophilic syndrome, which is serious, and people have very high eos counts.Also, eosinophilic pneumonia and eosinophilic gastroenteritis, the list goes on and on for each organ system. Much of it depends on the count. Generally if your blood eosinophil count is below 10%, it is most likely allergy or asthma. If higher than that for a few motnhs you should have it looked into.
I can barely get my body rolling these days~I'm just exhausted in all areas, emotional, physical, you name it, I'm wiped out! I asked the doctor about this tumor and what to expect and he said radiation and surgery. His office is setting up an appointment for me to meet the endocrinologist. I've read several of your entries and I have to say, I'm really nervous. My boyfriend tells me to stop my unecessary worrying, but is it unecessary? I don't think radiation and surgery is uneccessary!
Stress and anxiety seems to be affecting me more and more each day, especially since the semester is coming to an end (I'm a college student). Basically, I'm not sure how much anxiety is too much and if I should seek help to control it or not. Also, what are the physical symptoms that can arise when someone is experiencing too much anxiety/stress? I usually feel like I have no energy whatsoever, even after getting a good nights sleep.
Hello all, Im going to make this a very short version and include links to other posts ive made if you wish to further your reading. I am a 22 yr old caucasian male in the military. I have had quite alot of testing done lately for worsening symptoms and arrival of new symptoms. None of the symptoms seem to be consistent with anything I eat, drink, use on my skin, breath, how stressed, or how much sleep i get.
htm#Prozac%20Backlash There's tons of info on the net (and I mean professional experts' information - the internet harbours both good and bad sites). There are support boards and info sites specifically with regard to SSRIs generally, some to Prozac, some to Paxil etc.
I haven't really experienced the symptoms and pain she's been having, mainly the AIP attacks/flareups felt like gastroenteritis and the elevated LFTs cause general malaise + jaundice and related horrible itching. The weird-smelling stools may be due to bile not flowing properly due to bile duct obstruction (or partial obstruction) - are the stools lightish-colored? Have the doctors considered Imuran?
