1390055 tn?1365618655 I'm sure you don't want to be doing the swabs multiple times to get better answers. the herpes igm test is a flawed test and we never recommend its use to diagnose herpes. not sure if your post you just typed igm when you meant igg or not. you certainly do not have hsv2 on multiple body parts if you even have it at all. I'd stop antivirals and even though it's a pain to do so , follow up every time you have symptoms both orally and genitally for a proper diagnosis.
Avatar n tn I can be tired after 12 hours sleep! Can I be suffering symptoms from my thallassemia. Does any one else feel the same way that I do? This is a little bit hard for me, but I don't want to complain.
535089 tn?1400677119 It seems that many members are often having "bad" drug screens so again, here is some information on why your Test may be wrong. Medications & Substances Causing False Positives According to a report by the Los Angeles Times New Service, a study of 161 prescription and over the counter medications showed that 65 of them produced false positive results in the most widely administered urine test.
2190999 tn?1504992491 The CDC two tier testing protocol says to run a screening test, either an ELISA or an IFA first. Then, only if this is positive, run a Western Blot. ILADS docs say at least 30% or more of their patients are false negative on the screening test. (That was me.) Some say up to half. A Western Blot is more useful as it shows actual antibodies present.
Avatar f tn meds are strong drugs, infact i felt no difference in cocaine and concerta, so if you will not give your kids cocaine stay away from uppers to help your kid concentrate in school, dont believe me, calculate your weight versus your childs, take the amount indicated for your weight, see how you feel not trying to be mean to darlene, infact i admire the fact that she is looking for help just be careful with the speed, i had a melt down last monday at the dentist office after getting a novicane sho

Not all people experience will all withdrawal symptoms, and some people may experience others not listed here.

Avatar n tn If an adult had a 0% a surgen would remove the gall bladder. Has he had a liver function test(LFT or liver enzymes) a blood test, you said they checked his pancrease so his amalayse and lipase levels are appropriate? Also have they done a ANA lab test to check his immunoglobin levels in his body. There are different types of immunoglobins in the body (IgG, IgA, IgE, ect) and each one has a job.
Avatar f tn Hyper symptoms are caused by high FT3 and/or FT4 levels. That's the ONLY thing that causes hyper symptoms. FT3 is the test that correlates best with symptoms. T3 is the "active" form of the thyroid hormones. It's the only form your cells can use. So, if for some reason your FT3 is high and your FT4 low, you can still feel very hyper. (Unfortunately, we don't have FT3 in that first set of tests, so don't know what it was doing.
Avatar f tn Hello. Welcome. I am sorry you are having a difficult time. Yes it does sound like you are depressed. The loss of enjoyment is a very common symptom of major clinical depression. The technical tern is "anhedonia". The loss of the capacity to experience pleasure. A hopeless outlook and feeling is also common. "Symptoms in adolescents and teens may include anxiety, anger and avoidance of social interaction.
Avatar n tn While children will often have a reaction to certain foods consumed, this intolerance does not cause ADHD and following a specific diet, such as the Feingold Diet, has not proven to alter ADHD symptoms. Research also shows that sugar does not cause hyperactivity. Many factors can cause children to have problems paying attention besides an attention deficit disorder.
Avatar n tn after 18 months on amiodarone for arrytmia a thyroid test showed a TSH of 38. I am now on my second month of Levo and the usual symptoms persist. would be very grateful if you would post what dosis you take . I am on 150 once a day which is far below what most forum members take. My cardio assures me that it's enough. I'm 80 and feel only half alive . nb. the cardio last week took me off amio for propafenenone becaseu the though 18 months was far too long to take amio.
Avatar n tn They have ranged from inability to focus, hyperactivity, aggression, preference of being around adults instead of children and so on. The first thought was ADHD...but after two years of working hard with him...ADHD does not seem to fit. I have researched anxiety disorders, dyslexia, oppositional defiant disorder, autism and so on. Nothing seems to fit just right. So here is what we are currently facing... At home my son has improved tremendously.
4451049 tn?1387157037 Some of the Lyme Disease committee members who voted to require it as a screening test hold patents on the ELISA and make money from its usage. That's one reason the Connecticut Attorney General began an anti-trust investigation into the IDSA back around '06. A Western Blot at IGeneX is your best bet for finding signs of Lyme. In my case, the result convinced my regular doctor that I did indeed have Lyme, even though my earlier screening test was negative.

Avatar f tn Symptoms listed for MS are double vision, loss of balance, pain, exhaustion, bowel and bladder issues, numbness and tingling, concentration and memory problems. Yes i have a laundry of symptoms as you put it. I would call them Multiple Symptoms. I can't say as sure as you can supermum_ms that i don't have MS. I wish i could. Not everyone who has MS has the same symptoms which is why it's so difficult to diagnose. It's complex.
Avatar f tn Check out Dr. Kharrazian's thyroid book, "Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms When My Lab Tests Are Normal?" I have been living with Hashimoto's most of my adult life and his theory is that you need to treat the autoimmune disease. It might be helpful for you in your journey. Fascinating information.
Avatar n tn my symptoms started only about 2 months ago. The headaches/pressure/fog were severe and I too had some hair loss. I don't know either if all of our symptoms are related but I have been able to improve by about 50% in the last couple of weeks. The fog was so extreme that I was unable to concentrate and at this point that's not an issue any longer. I noticed that I often woke up at night with clenched teeth and so the first thing for me was to try and work on my neck muscles.
Avatar n tn For the past 4 years I have been experiencing horrible symptoms. It seemed that the whole thing started as a sinus infection but then I went for a CT scan of sinuses and they were clear. I have been having symptoms of dizziness, head pain, shakiness and a spaced out kind of foggy feeling like i am watching my life from the outside - all day every day. There are some times for a couple of hours during the day that the symptoms may lift and give me a few moments to live- but not much.
Avatar f tn I was just diagnosed with celiac last year and was diagnosed with Hashi's in childhood - celiac just went undiagnosed until I asked my dr to test for it. I didn't really have major symptoms - mainly inability to gain weight, fatigue, diarrhea without the pain usually associated with it, and poor immune system - yet all my antibodies were very high. not everyone with celiac has the awful symptoms, that's why so many people go undiagnosed for so long. I hope you get an answer!
162948 tn?1205256292 I had my IUD taken out 7/1 and had all the pregnancy symptoms... took the test negative. I had a spotting on 7/5 then on 7/10 and now it was like a period on 8/11 lasted til the 15th. We really want our third. Sending baby dust all your ways.
Avatar n tn in fall, they said I was healthy and would not even order a stress test. Same symptoms as others describe, can't get air all the way into lungs without straining or yawning. Now is constant, whether sitting at desk or running 5 miles. Kind of thinking allergy related, but not sure how to test? Don't take any medications and don't really want to just start allergy meds if that isn't it. And I have never been allergic to anything before. Very maddening at this point.
Avatar n tn Are we gonna make it like Rocky? Tingling 2 the Revenge? My suggestion on how to sleep....is already known! Ok, I don't want to transform all of you in a bunch of drug addicted, but have you tried a tranquillizer just once? Just to see whether your tingling diminishes the moment you calm down? @rnneeedshelp: as my "colleague" has written, you are anxious over the symptoms, not the opposite, and the same is for all of us.
Avatar n tn The entire vaginal area is very itchy and if I scratch or rub the skin at all I often give myself one of these tears. It seems as if the skin is very thin. There are no other symptoms that I am aware of. I have had blood work and a biopsy done. Some of the things that I was tested for were; genital herpes, lichen sclerosus, lichen simplex chronicus, lichen planus, vulvar vestibulitis. All results came back negative. The biopsy tested positive for "healing ulcers".
Avatar n tn With those symptoms I would care less what my mom thought. Read some of our other posts darling. I for one would like to see you around for a long long time. If you react like that I would waste NO time see an emergency room. I certainly wouldn't make that my drug of choice again. You already stated you over do it. AND YES IT COULD KILL YOU! Get checked out dear and make sure your heart can take it. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. In my opinion this is serious.
Avatar n tn ) type symptoms for HOURS until they subside...sometimes hycosamine will work...sometimes 4 tums...and once and a while nothing but time cures it.....I have been told IBS....and intestinal intussusuption (found on two CT scans)diverticulitis...then I started to read up on Sphinter of Oddi syndrome...and it was like I was reading stories NOT from others suffering from it...but like I had written them myself....
Avatar m tn I wanted to add that I have to "bites" really. As far as visible symptoms I have no open cuts or wounds, except one that I've just discovered on my penis.
Avatar n tn I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets these. I went to the gyno and she thought it was herpes! Which, the test came back negative, so it wasn't that. And I hate having to use the bathroom because if urine runs over the tear, it hurts!! It's also painful to wipe. And yes, in response to your question, I do get yeast-like infections as well. I didn't know what to try, I never thought of something like Desitin. If anyone gets an answer from the doc, let me know!
298579 tn?1192250448 Hi - I just stumbled upon this forum and was very comforted to learn that I am not the only one out there with this problem - Marisa1, I have the exact same symptoms as you described in your post! I have had this for about 8 years now and none of my doctors could ever seem to explain it. I was told to try and relieve my bowels before entering into a situation that would lead to having an orgasm....not really the best advice.
Avatar f tn were random home testing, court ordered counseling and of course facing his probation officer once a month w/the possibility of a urine test. Life was good ..... he was happy working steady with my husband and I felt like I had my family back again. We were all working so hard for him. Then whhhaaaaooommmoooo his behavior started to change about 3 weeks ago.
Avatar m tn I posted this info before, but it was a reply to someone else's similar post... I am a 23 year old healthy male. I recently had a full physical and the results were that I am in above average health. I have no diseases, do not use drugs, but drink on occasion. Anyways, just started noticing these strange symptoms, within the past few weeks. Nothing "brought it on" so to speak that I can tell of.
