Has anyone had any experience with this symptom? I don't mean <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span> on about it, but swollen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glands</span> in that timeframe and for that duration seem convincing. Teak has mentioned that seroconversion related swelling isn't painful, but I have read and been advised that this feeling could be due to lymph production. it isn't crippling pain, just constant, specific, and has been sufficient enought to be noticable, and not just in his head.
Hey. Glad you went to the dr finally. When I went my node had been swollen for a week, my blood was fine. He said if I had a serious prob, by the time the gland swelled my blood would have been off. Still, I didn't feel better about it. I have to go give my blood tomorrow for the surgery Wednesday. I have been crying a lot, but I swear the celexa has helped me a lot. I didn't notice it at first, but I think it does. I am still leaning on a thyroid nodule, probably malignant, due to the node.
Doctors sometimes do not have enough depth of knowledge about this virus, and can either overlook symptoms like swollen Parotic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glands</span>, lymph nodes, etc, or just not connect them <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> Hep-C. There is a large body of medical literature over the past ten to fifteen years describing the effects of HCV on the salivary system, lymphatic system, connective tissues (rheumatology).
it looks really bad and the nurse told me it would take weeks, months and sometimes up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> a year <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span> back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> normal. Has anybody had this or know of somebody that has? Cause I am going crazy my poor baby looks very uncomfortable.
They're really painful - even when I don't touch them or move my mouth - and make my face look even more horribly fat. I'd really like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> reduce or eliminate the swelling, so help would really be appreciated.
There is now a swollen knot on my cheek that extends <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>down</span> my neck <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the left side of my throat. I have had severe discomfort but found more relief through Advil rather than the Percocet. The tooth was difficult for the oral surgeon to extract and I need a few stitches afterwards. When I look inside my mouth, I can see a yellow flecks around the area. it's hard to tell if it's food or a "scab". I don't want to remotely poke around to find out.
I am supposed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span> back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> doctor Friday so I will be sure <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> mention it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> him then. I am a 33 year old female and my period has been irregular for what seems like forever. I just kind of hoped maybe I might be trying to strart the change REALLY early. Wishful thinking I suppose. Maybe it's all sinus related though because I do have facial pain on the left side (same side the knots are) under my eye and this morning when I got up my eyes had a little bit of drainage dried on them.
) My whites are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>down</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> 1.5 as of last week, so I wonder if I need <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> drop my Inf. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>down</span> from 180 - 135? I'm just so mad that they don't do weight-based b/c today I'm at 104lbs (8 pounds down in 10 weeks...YUCK!). I know 800mg Riba would be enough for me, especially since I was UND at week 4 and Geno 3 - those are great odds! At what point does one take matters into their own hands? how much suffering first? :) Thanks! Booo Happy Sunday!
Hello, Swollen lymph nodes are usually caused by a viral or bacterial infection. Other causes include allergic reactions, arthritis, cancer, metabolic diseases, and an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism).Since he is having other symptoms of frequent cough,night sweats and epistaxis,I would watch out for chronic respiratory infections esp TB, liver disorders,sinus and nasopharyngeal abnormalities or serious causes like bleeding disorders and leukmias.
All negitive HIV (always safe, even took a pcr at 7 weeks just incase), white and red cells are good,no lyme, no bacteria. Why are my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glands</span> still swollen? I did <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the dentist and they told me that my wisdom teeth need to come out. She asked if one was infected, i guess it looked kinda weird. But they dont hurt or anything. Could it be that? Anyone please these are very annoying.
My boyfriend has had an infected wisdom tooth ever since we started dating, which was almost 2 yrs ago. i have tried <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> him <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span> get it looked at, but he can be very stubborn! Now this morning he told me he had woken up with a mouth full of blood! I just got a couple of questions: how bad is the infection when your waking up with a mouth full of blood? And, how would you suggest getting someone(28 yrold male) who is afraid of needles to go to the doctor and get themselves checked out?
after a few days, I was strung out on the steroids - having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> take long walks at 2 am <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> calm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>down</span> and eventually going <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the emergency room with severe anxiety/stress. My allergist said he'd done all he could do and referred me to an excellent ENT. The ENT prescribed steroid based nose sprays to open the tubes. after 2 days, it wasn't working and I was going crazy again. At this time, I went to my chiropractor for my monthly adjustment on my lower back.
I had a sore throat, chest congestion, low-grade fever of 100 degrees for 17 days. Thought it was a virus and/or cold. I have always been told that if it isn't gone by 10 days <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> your doctor, so i did. He said i had broncitus and prescribed antibotics, zpack. At that time a new symptom appeared, swollen glands on top of my collar bone. I finished the treatment and it had no-effect on this. it didn't stop the fever, or slow down the fatique.
ALSO, I NOW HAVE A HABit OF PRESSING ON THE <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glands</span>, EVEN WHEN THEY ARE NOT SWOLLEN, WHICH ALSO CAUSES THE GLAND <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> SWELL. IS THERE A SPECIALIST I CAN SEE for THIS PROBLEM OTHER THAN A PYSCHOLOGIST?
The pain seems <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>down</span> into my neck from the back of my eye. it can be a dull pain around the back of my eye, or more and more lately, its a piercing pain. My glands in my neck are swollen and I have constant nasal mucus drip in my throat. The musuc drip is mostly white. My vision seems the same, however I have always been extelemely myopic (-16). I have been to the GP and ENT, waiting to get back to the Opthamalogist in a couple of weeks. The ENT did a sinus CT and nothing major showed.
I was on a very strong antibiotic augmentin and something else for 10 days and that's when the lymph node action began nolt started <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span> away...maybe this is not an infection. I have extreme fatique swollen lymph <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glands</span> flulike symptoms hot and the chills etc. Any advice please.....
That being said, HCV patients are 4 times more likely to contract lymphoma due to stress on immune system and one symptom of lymphoma is swollen glands. You may want to see a doctor.
I could breathe fine but it took about 10 more minutes of concern before I generated enough moisture <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>down</span>. My epiglottis was then swollen for the next 2 or 3 days after that. I suppose the irritation caused by too-dry of food being force-swallowed past it must have irritated it. I happens every 6 months or so for unknow reasons but it's probably from the same cause.
AND the weirdest part of all this is that when I eat anything, even the blandest bowl of Cheerios, I get that intensely zesty-swelling sensation in that gland. What can I do <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> make this swelling and this irritating sensation go away?
My body is quite sensitive to medications and I'm worried about a reaction to one I haven't had before especially cos my body feels quite under strain with all these antibiotics and whatever illness I'm fighting. Has anyone had steroids for swollen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>glands</span> before? Are they likely <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>down</span> without the steroids?should I have blood tests first? I haven't had them yet and am still taking antibiotics. Feeling less wrecked but not myself and still have the swollen glands.
Im not even getting the ultrasound on it or whatever its called until sometime next week. Then i beleive they decide <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> treat it. My biggest concern is that its seemingly eating things up like my back and muscles. Im afraid it could do permanent irreversable damage by the time its fixed or removed possibly even disabling me to a point. Is this possible or am i being paranoid? Is it doing the damage i think or is it just pain that will go away quickly?
now my doctor has told me I must see an endocrinologist immediately, although she would not adjust my synthroid <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get my TSH <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>down</span>, preferring <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> leave that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the endo. The wait is not easy for me. My appointment is on Friday the 13th this month. Couldn't they have made it a different day? So that's that... in my head the picture is this... my high TSH has been stimulating growth.
This morning he ate a bagel and swollowed a big peice and it scraped the gland and it has it stopped swelling but I would like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> know if anyone knows what it is and if he should <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the doctor. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> serious is it?
I forgot to ask did your CA levels ever go down.
could you please tell me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get your answer <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> my question. i'm very scare and confuse and don't know what this could be. how do i look for your answer and how long does it take? THANK YOU EVER SO MUCH.
If this isn't in the right forum section, please move it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the correct one, but read my post first. I guess this could also <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span> in the allergies section. I am nearly 16 years old, now a Junior in High School, and have had problems with bumps and swelling on my eyelids since the 4th grade. I woke up this morning to my right eye being half open. Looking in the mirror, it's swollen yet again. There are two "folds" or "wrinkles" it looks like on my eyelid.
My doc told me it was due to a virus and that I probably have a virus in my intestines which is causing the abdominal pain, but I still have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> a gastro doc <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> have checked. Funny <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> some docs don't know what's going on. it seems a lot of people are getting this. The white tongue is just that your tongue is dry. We all have hair like things on our tongues. Brush your tongue and keep it clean.
