19731759 tn?1483433555 I have developed Barrett's Esophagus as well. The easy solution would be to get some dental care, but it's impossible for me to do this on a limited income of $734 a month, you see its not just one tooth,I have all of my teeth but they are just the roots that remain,I actually only have 4 lower teeth left. There is no dental help for me here where I live and I cannot possibly pay for what needs to be done.
Avatar m tn Other possibilities are enlarged tonsils,adenoids or quinsy, which is peritonsillar abscess in which there is pus collection around the tonsils. A clinical examination is necessary. You should get yourself reviewed by an ENT specialist. Hope it helps. Best luck ad regards!
Avatar m tn If there is tenderness on pressing the neck from outside, then this could be due to spinal nerve compression, inflamed sternocleidomastoid muscle as in TMJ (this would respond to physiotherapy, pain killers and cold compress), swollen lymph nodes if you can feel a mass, an abscess if you can feel a mass, a clot in the carotid artery or due to a muscle pull. Please consult your doctor regarding this. Take care!
Avatar m tn GERD can cause chest pain now Iam not a doc but this is some info i found, Long-term GERD can lead to Barrett's esophagus, a condition in which the color and composition of the cells lining the lower esophagus change because of repeated exposure to stomach acid. Barrett's esophagus is a risk factor for esophageal cancer. But i wouldnt jump to assume thats it, maybe a CT or a MRI could show better results for something less serious.
Avatar m tn The only thing that was not normal about my throat was the bottom of my larnyx/pharynx where it connects to my esophagus was red and inflamed. She said the reason for feeling a lump in my throat was Acid Reflux. Specifically Laryngealpharyngeal Reflux. Otherwise know as LPR and sometimes called "silent reflux." She has me on Omepreazole 40mg twice a day. 30 minutes before eating breakfast and dinner. So far the lump feeling is still there. :( I go back and see her next month.
Avatar n tn Infection Tooth infection or abscess Gum disease Pharyngitis Thrush (a fungal infection caused by Candida) Herpes simplex infection Cytomegalovirus infection Human immunodeficiency virus infection (HIV) Ulcers (from infection, medications, or chemical ingestions) Esophagitis (inflammation in the esophagus, often from gastroesophageal reflux disease) Rarely, a foreign body (such as fish or poultry bones) Esophageal motor disorders, such as nutcracker esophagus, diffuse esophageal spas
Avatar f tn I seem to have all this air in my esophagus. I'm belching constantly. there have been times when I think I may be having a heart attack. Then I belch and all the pain stops.
Avatar m tn Your concern about this “odd lump” is appropriate and you should definitely visit your doctor. This “lump” could be anything from a (congenital) cyst, to an abscess to a swelling of the thyroid gland, each requiring a different treatment. Trouble swallowing is called dysphagia and there are many causes. The following description is taken from the Web-MD website.
Avatar n tn This was the result of esophagus being very irritated and candida in mouth. got in bloodstream and settled in liver. Take care and keep informed of how you are.
Avatar n tn However, since that time whenever she rolls over on her right side, she has what she calls bile come up in her esophagus and most of the time it causes her to vomit. She is taking pepcid ac to help but has to be very careful of what she eats. what could be causing this?
Avatar m tn marrow edema is most marked in c6 vertabral bodies. large prevertabral abscess is seen in cirvicodosral region displaying hypo to isointense signals on T2W1. abscess is predominantly seen on the left side of midline involving preverbtal muscles with mild extensions on right side in right preverbtal muscles. cranially it is extending upto c2 verteba and caudally till d4 in posterior aspect of superior mediastium.
Avatar m tn It was lodged in my throat for about 30 seconds before going down. It was about the size of two cheerios but it also had a slightly sharp part. I don't feel any actual pain but I do feel discomfort, especially in the area directly below my chest. Do I HAVE to get it checked out or can I just let nature run its course?
Avatar n tn The feeling of something in the throat is often found in people with acid reflux problems. It's a sensation called globus. It will respond to acid suppression meds, but it takes a lot of time to disappear. If he's vomited blood, you need to request that the doc do an upper endoscopy and take a look at the status of his esophagus, stomach and duodenum.
Avatar n tn I had an endoscopy two weeks ago, as a result of the disaster in helath care I endured. Back in December I ended up being severely ill with an abscess in my colon. The doctor in the ER was insistent that it would 'clear itself up' with oral antibiotics. I went home and took them. And ended up hospitalized for several days, as the abscess was worse and I was told they removed about 80mL of infection from my colon.
Avatar m tn He injected it with cortisone right about the same time my stomach began burning…probably releasing the abscess toxins in to my blood stream. The abscess was there long before my encounter. I have seen SO MANY doctors and you two are the only ones that seem to have the capacity to paint a clear picture. In lieu of the Chron’s disease and its autoimmune nature, my General practitioner wants me to continue HIV tests beyond 6 months to a year.
Avatar f tn ) which resulted in being hospitalized with complications including an abscess in abdomen, hole in duodenum, as well as having to have bile stents and bile bags put in for a period of time. I was discharged at the end of January. In February, when the time came to remove the last stent, the dr. could not remove it because I developed an esophageal stricture. He said it was a 1/4 of the size it typically should be. The dr. who removed the gallstones is the same one who discovered the stricture.
Avatar n tn As I have been on ppis before and since the op could this reduction in acid have affected my pancreas and hence a reduction in enzymes for digesting these foods. If I take digestive enzymes in tablet form, one specifically for dairy and another broad spectrum I can eat these foods. Or, could the fundo have caused these problems? Your comments would be appreciated as I am not getting much help from the medics here in the UK. Will I be able to eat these foods in the future?
Avatar m tn My wife was sent to the hospital about 5 months ago with what appeared to be a abcess in her lower colon. Ever since then she has been suffering from increasing pain in her upper right abdomen (especially sever at night). She also suffers from chills, nausea (recently leading to vomiting), and acid reflux (at night) into her esophagus. She is also Type I Diabetic and suffers from CIDP.
Avatar m tn After that, she rode on top of me genital to genital (I think it is called frottage) for ~ 5 minutes, it was very aggressive and the head/tip of my penis came in contact w/ her vagina and likely had secretions on it. I immediately regretted it, but that is beside the point. After a week I went to my PCP and get tested for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia (both negative). So at the 4 week mark I was feeling sick, low grade fever, and slight difficulty swallowing.
454046 tn?1244569193 I wonder if it is a stitch abscess. Do a search in the archives for ChitChatNine Stitch Abscess or Spitting Stitches and you'll find my old posts. Someplace I have a pic of my little bumpy #2 ..... you couldn't miss it .. The tight is from the surgery most likely (but I'm not a Dr) ..... there are mega internal stitches inside. In about 10 days it starts to ease up. hears to the surf my friend CHEERS!
Avatar m tn Lately,while lying on my left side,I sometimes feel an constant aching in my right side (where my liver is located). If I roll over on my right side the pain/ache leaves my body. Is this something I should be concerned about?

Avatar f tn Two days after antibiotics are complete, I start feeling severe pain in my left jaw and rear molar.( felt like I got kicked in the face by a horse.) Face started swelling up, lots of nerve pain. Ended up in ER and they concluded it might have been my dental infection. They gave me three nerve blocks and prescribed a stronger dose of augmentin to continue taking. He told me to see my dentist asap. See dentist the next day.
Avatar f tn after lots of googleing i found out that hepititis c can effect ur lympatic system ,which can cause swollen lymph nodes in and around ur esophagus,and numbness in fingers which is what i've been experiencing for about a week or so .i went for my ultrasound on monday, still awaiting to hear from doc ,will deff descuss this w/ him in the mean time just wondering if anyone else has had this problem or can offer any info on the matter??
771913 tn?1343334788 This may lead to an inflammatory reaction, a lung infection (pneumonia), or a collection of pus in the lungs (lung abscess). Aspiration of foreign material (often the stomach contents) into the lung can occur with disorders that affect normal swallowing or disorders of the esophagus (esophageal stricture, gastroesophageal reflux).
Avatar f tn There are a number of potential causes for pain around the time of eating but the most serious one is a retrobulbar abscess, or an abscess that forms in the space behind the eye. These can cause serious problems fairly quickly, including blindness and in severe cases, death. In most cases, dogs with retrobulbar abscesses are really pained by having their mouths opened -- some dogs refuse to allow this and others just scream when someone attempts to open the mouth beyond a certain point.
Avatar m tn Varices are expanded blood vessels that develop most commonly in the esophagus and stomach. In people with cirrhosis, varices develop when blood flow through the liver is obstructed (blocked) by scarring, increasing the pressure inside the portal vein, which carries blood from the intestines to the liver; this condition is called portal hypertension. Portal hypertension leads to an increase in the blood pressure inside the veins in the lower esophagus and stomach.
Avatar f tn I've had every test heart, endoscopy etc all cam back normal besides inflammation in my esophagus. The chest pain and upper abdominal discomfort is from my GERD and anxiety the anxiety triggers acid reflux and esophageal spasms. I also take ativan .5 PRN(as needed) and that helps relieve the stomach tension and chest pain. I would reccommend having your doc talk to you about anxiety meds. I prefer ativan because it's fast acting and I don't need to take it everyday. But it's not for everyone.
