abscess

Avatar m tn //www.mayoclinic.org/symptoms/coughing-up-blood/basics/causes/sym-20050934 Causes By Mayo Clinic Staff Hemoptysis refers to coughing up blood from some part of the lungs (respiratory tract). Blood coming from elsewhere, such as your stomach, can appear to be from the lungs. It's important for your doctor to determine the site of the bleeding, and then determine why you're coughing up blood. The major cause of coughing up blood is chronic bronchitis or bronchiectasis.
Avatar n tn Nothing seems to be working and am fearful another abscess is accumulating now. Doc has referred me to Mayo Clinic, has anyone gone that route and if so what is the process? I honestly would rather have the breast taken if I could get this all to stop. Any answers would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn There is nothing worse than a pain you can't seem to treat or get an answer about. I can totally sympathize. There are so many causes of pain on the upper left side of a persons abdomen.
Avatar n tn A breast infection (abscess) Most common in lactating women, a breast abscess can happen when your nipples become irritated or infected from breast-feeding. A break or crack in your skin can allow bacteria to invade your breast tissue, causing an infection. The nipple discharge may contain pus, and the breast can become red, swollen and warm to the touch. Treatment involves surgically draining the abscess, and your doctor also may prescribe antibiotics.

Avatar m tn My cortisol has been checked 8 times in 3 months, and every test has come back extremely high. My Endo wants to refer me to Mayo. I have an appt there in March but am frustrated and stumped by the unknown origin of my elevated Cortisol. I have every symptom of Cushing's, and I am miserable. Is it still possible that it could be a pituitary tumor even though the MRI showed nothing and the lab work came back perfectly normal for that gland? My adrenals are also working perfect.
Avatar n tn After the 4th admission, doctors said they didn't know what the underlying problem was, and suggested I might have better luck at Mayo Clinic or elsewhere. After two visits to Mayo in MN, where nothing was found, I was admitted the 5th time back home. There were no significant tests done that hadn't been conducted previously, so after treatment with Vancomycin and other antibiotics, I was sent home with a script for Levaquin & Flagyl.
Avatar f tn injury or trauma to the face; malnutrition or obesity and even tooth abscess. If cold compress do not work, raise the head of the bed or use extra pillows to reduce facial swelling.Further evaluation should also be done to rule out the differentials mentioned. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn Over time, the area becomes firm and hard. Eventually, the center of the abscess softens and becomes filled with pus. Finally, the pus "forms a head," which can be surgically opened or spontaneously drain out through the surface of the skin. Apply warm compresses on the boil and keep the area clean.Drainage of the boil is done only when it becomes soft and forms a head.Take some over the counter pain reliever and consult a doctor for examination and antibiotics prescription.
Avatar n tn I started out at the dentist because I thought it might be due to grinding or an abscess. Then to the neurologist that has given me so many meds to try with no avail. He thinks it's the abilify I was given. This all started about 3-4 months after I started the abilify. I'm desperate and will do anything or go anywhere for help. Maybe the Mayo Clinic. I can't stand the pain - it never stops. Any suggestions?
Avatar f tn She was extremely concerned and sent me directly to the emergency room because she thouht it might have been an abscess from my gallbladder surgery. Luckily it was not an abscess. The ER doctor did notice some inflammation in the intestines but did not seem too concerned. I had a bunch of blood work done again. My primary care physician is testing me for a variety of different viruses and my blood will be sent to the Mayo Clinic. She also wants to do an Upper GI series test.
Avatar n tn I HAVE BEEN TO CLEVELANS CLINIC, MAYO CLINIC, NY UNIVERSITY PAIN CLINIC AND ABOUT 20 OR MORE DOCTORS. NO ONE HAS AN ANSWER. I AM TAKING 40 MG. OF OXYCONDONE PLUS 750 OF HYDROCORDON AND STILL ALTHOUGH IT DULLS THE PAIN IT DOESNT GO AWAY. I AM SUPPOSED TO SEE ANOTHER PAIN DOCTOR BUT IT IS MY BELIEF THAT PAIN DOCTORS JUST TREAT THE PAIN. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW THE REASON WHY THE PAIN EXISTS.
Avatar n tn A PPD can be planted to exclude TB. Imaging studies of the chest/abdomen/pelvis can be done to exclude an abscess as well as lymphoma. Accompanying blood tests can be done to help exclude an infection or inflammation. Examples would be a blood count as well as a sedimentation rate. A referral to an infectious disease specialist should be considered to discuss these options. Followup with your personal physician is essential.
Avatar n tn I DID have an abscess. It took them 6 months to find it. It was MRSA and Pseudomonus. I had the abscess debrided. Then it came back much larger and added the complication of Meningitis. When they re-opened my head again for the 3rd time, they also found an Osteomyelitis of the occipital bone. They said I would unlikely ever be rid of this infection 100% permanently.
Avatar m tn He did the same to another patient who was in the same room I was. Following the surgery I contracted abscess and for someone whose suppose to be highly educated and specialized in the field he actually had the nerve to ask my parents what they thought it was going on. Another Surgeon was asked to consult on my case and he agreed with me that I wasn't receiving appropriate care. This Surgeon was very concerned about how much weight I was losing with him putting me on feeding tube.
Avatar n tn My hubby went in for a sinple gallbladder removal and he woumd up in the hospital here for a week and then they transferred him to mayo clinic. He had two stents put in his bile duct. and he also had a small rip in his bowel he has a long road to recovery, so I wouldn't let anything go too long, after having it removed it could be very serious.
Avatar f tn I can tell you I know that Cleveland Clinic and Mayo Clinic both specialize in dysautonomia. Also Dr Blair Grubb in Ohio but there is quite a,wait to get into him I hear. I noticed much of your symptoms started after a root canal and access. This caught my eye as my pots and ncs got worse and stayed that way after I had a tooth pulled and it abcessed. After that things didn't improve for me. I also have ms and am told mine is secondary to the ms.
553283 tn?1409697911 This can be further evaluated with CT scans of the sternum/chest to make sure no inflammation or abscess is present that would suggest infection as a cause of your symptoms. Some patients develop scar tissue in the healing process that can lead to chronic inflammatory state in the surrounding tissues, which can lead to pain. Unfortunately, if scar tissue is the problem in your case, there is not a lot to do in order to completely remedy that issue.
Avatar f tn My doctor of course was not a GI specialist so she referred me to someone else to see in the mean time why we waited for a Mayo appointment. My doctor did not call Mayo herself so my mom and I had to work that out. We were able to schedule an appointment with pediatric GI on May 18. I am 17 years old so I have to be pediatric. This fact is okay with me. In the mean time I have just been living like I have been this past year.
Avatar n tn The same is true for an abscess. I would ensure that the HIDA scans were with CCK stimulation to evaluate the ejection fraction of the gallbladder. If low, it can replicate the symptoms you are experiencing, and gallbladder removal may be beneficial. If these tests continue to be negative, then you can consider looking outside of the GI symptoms for a cause - i.e. can start looking a musculoskeletal or neurological diseases that may lead to the symptoms.
Avatar f tn Muscle strain Abdominal hernia Strenuous exercise Blow, blunt force trauma Rectus sheath hematoma Abscess in psoas muscle PANCREAS The pancreas is a large multipurpose gland which has exocrine functions that affects digestion and endocrine functions which control metabolism. It empties its digestive enzymes (exocrine component) into the duodenum, the first part of the small intestine, along with bile released by the gallbladder.
Avatar f tn I hurt my back in a car accident in 1998 and have taken every blasted pain med you can think of, I am at the point they are making things worse (I thought so but my doctors here need the money so they disagreed I got confirmation at the Mayo that they are sure I have "Hyperalgesia", so I am tapering off) It sounds like you know your body, is it Fibromyalgia/nerve pain? Opiates don't help much for that.
Avatar n tn I too have suffered from fistulas and last week developed another abscess. More than likely I will develop another fistula. I'm young and healthy like many of you and understand why you all are so discouraged. It took 5 surgeries and a year last time to resolve mine. My post today is different than most here.

Avatar f tn Keep a bowl of fruit handy for snacks, whatever you like to gnaw on, you can even cut slices of apple if you don't like chewing on them, some people eat the whole apple that way, cut and put the slice via the knife into your mouth, on around until you've eaten the whole apple. Canned fruit, like peaches, with a dab of mayo, tastes good. In general, the more colorful your food is, the more vits and minerals you'll get.
Avatar n tn At times, my penis and skin of my scrotum feel numb. Been to great doctors(mayo clinic) and they say it is all in my head. Trust me Dr., there is something wrong-I know my body. After doing countless hours of research and spending thousands of dollars on medical expenses, I am pretty much at the end of my rope. Do you have any idea as to what this could be? Could this possibly be Genital tuberculosis? If so, would a regular PPD show positive if it was present in my genitals?
Avatar n tn Then she started having anxiety .We finally got into the Mayo clinic and last week they said that it was TN and we are going to try some different meds.We are trying to avoid surgery due to the risk.Her pain usually happens within a 2 hour time period around 9pm to 11 pm.It starts out aching then procedes to burning and twisting and then goes to a severe stabbing pain.The pain peaks within 15 mins and gradually subsides within 40 mins.
Avatar n tn not a bartholin cyst. I was referred to a GYN who said it is a normal skin abscess. He was going to drain it under general anesthesia but decided to wait one more day. This morning, it felt a bit better but by the end of the day it hurt to walk again and I was now itching (probably a yeast infection from the DR's poking and prodding) I went back to the GYN who said it was no yeast infection, everything looks fine and the abscess is smaller.
Avatar n tn They diagnosed her with ADEM.After 2 weeks and her fever getting up to 105,they sent her to Mayo. They concurred with our local hospital. She started getting better in March.In June,she started having headaches and had a low grade temp.After 3 weeks and getting worse,they admitted her and did an lp which showed her wbc count at 78 and traces of myelin and protein and an increase in the csf pressure but no Obands.
