Are they small thin stripes and are they black, blue or really grey? I am not a doctor but just trying to help. Sometimes black stripes can be heart problems. They don't mention gray stripes. There are lots of reasons for the stripes and it sounds like you are immunocompromised by being sick all the time or that you have a viral infection. I'm not sure who to refer you to if you don't have insurance . Have you seen any doctor?

she's an extreme case, but we all started talking abut our little problems we hate and the little things we do..... I will check 3-4 times in the AM thatI've turned the coffee pot off.

Upon seeing an orthopedic dr, and having x-rays, it was found that the bones in his wrist died from the jarring impact of the nail gun. So, he had a partial wrist fusion. After 6 weeks in a plaster cast, then 2 months in the velcro dohickey cast, wrist brace, etc. he was back to square one. In extreme pain, and unable to use his wrist. So back to surgery for a total wrist fusion.
I believe this to be a virus. I've always had problems with canker sores in my tongue and right now fighting off a bacterial infection too. When your immune system is down the bumps are much more likely to appear. I agree that stress is a huge factor as well! Good luck all!

But I have this horrible bitter taste on my lips that just won't go away. Like when you use nail polish remover and then stick your finger in your mouth by accident... only I don't wear nail polish and haven't used any polish remover. No household cleaners either... It's just a really horrible bitter taste on my lips. Any clues???
They are tiny and hardly visible to the naked eye but they look like tiny white specks and at different stage they can actually be seen as tiny black specks in your bathroom or in your kitchen, especially around the sinks. They usually don't move so you think they're just specks of dirt except if you disturb them, they will actually hop. You can see them on your white sheets. Disturb them with your fingernail and watch them hop.
Now I have raw bloody spots on the bottom of my foot where I have dug in with my fingernails and scratched. Please help if you know of anything I can do...
I had the same problems with my eyelids - ichy, swollen, dry, then the skin would just peel off - it was awful. I went to the doctor who sent me to the dermatologist. They said I was allergic to something but did not know what. I also have RLS (restless leg syndrome) and at night I would take Advil to help alleviate the symptoms. I realize now that sometimes I would take Aleve instead of the Advil and that is when my eyes would swell up and burn and itch.

All of the docs say it is a coincidence that any of my problems started shortly after receiving the implant. I have sent blood in for the Melisa test, but wonder if a reaction will show being I was not able to refrain from using inhalers for five days. The implant has adhered to the bone and looks "perfect". I am ready to get it out and praying I can return to my normal level of activity. Is there anyone out there with some information that could help? Am I the only one????
MS was ruled out after testing, but I was not diagnosed at that time, and the Neurologist thought my problems were in my head, and that I needed to see a counselor! :( Finally in 2007, I got the courage up again to go to another Neuologist for help, because my symptoms had worsened, and I was having difficulty walking (long term, extreme B6 toxicity side effect).
Hi, I have just diagonized with GERD only but negative to H.Poly bacteria. I have to tried variety of medicines (including homeo) for GERD but nothing works. Usually I don't blurp a lot. But there is lot of pain (not pain exactly but sort of strange feeling on the upper part of the stomach and doctors say this is common due to GERD) But I must say that I felt a lot better with had the candida related drug (Called Threelac bought from US). Usually I feel worse during the winter.
And I dn't believe it's Kundalini rising - it's not a sensation going up and down my spine. It's in a 1 inch radius in the same spot on my back. In any case, this posting has helped me because I now feel a little bit better that I'm not paranoid and making this up. I'll make sure I go see a doc.

The itching was so severe and would not stop so I finally went to the dr and he gave me oral steroids for a week. It went away. A few months later I was out in the sun and had no problems, then a week after that I was out in the sun again for a few hours and I burned quickly. I got a bad burn, but never had any issues with itching. I tried a few months later to try tanning again. Sure enough I started itching really bad again.
Please Please help me figure out what other problems there might be. I have been in the same relationship all this time. Also, if you know any remedies for the itching, please send my way. I use All Free & Clear laundry detergent, and wash with warm water as I fell needed throughout the day. I also don't get my period often, I tied my tubes in 2003, so I don't take any BC. I am not on any medication. Just looking for what else might there be...
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? It is located in the area where I shave daily. Any advice would be very appreciated!

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.
I get this several times a year and it goes from one arm to the other. I have no history of neck problems and I am definately not in the sun much. Also, mine flares up more in the fall and spring, very little in the summer. I am glad that I found this forum and that I am not alone. I have had this going on for about 3 years (after the last surgery on my rotator cuff) and when I have spoken to my PCP she acted like I was making it up.
