Avatar n tn It is an awful thing to 'have to put up with' I also have ulcers on the back of my tongue and roof of my mouth, this cannot be normal.
Avatar n tn There is a rounded area of hyperintense signal on the axial T2-weighted images measuring approximately 9mm toward the base of the tongue and pre-epiglottic space. This nut fully evaluated. Dedicated contrast-enhanced MRI of the neck and tongue region is recommended. This could be a small cyst, however, I cannot exclude a neoplastic lesion.
Avatar f tn Doctors say that changing sexual behaviors -- earlier sex, more partners and especially oral sex -- are contributing to a new epidemic of orpharyngeal squamous cell cancers, those of the throat, tonsils and base of the tongue. These cancers can be deadly, and are striking men at a younger age and in increasing numbers. "There's a lag in information," said Dr. John Deeken, a medical oncologist at Georgetown University.
Avatar f tn 1) I make a base using Triple antibiotic ointment, mostly because it is the consistency of vaseline and I don't have any vaseline. Any really thick ointment will work. Squirt a 2 inch blob or so into into a small dish. (smothers the eggs which require oxygen; also smothers their parents) 2) Add 4 or 5 drops of clove oil. (kills the eggs) 3) Add 3 or 4 drops of iodine. (kills the eggs) 4) Add a few drops of Neem oil.
Avatar n tn She is so exhausted that she can't fight no more against medical community in order to admit the origin of her symptoms and to push them to try to find a beginnning of solution. Is there any progress in the comprehension of the cause of these symptoms ? Are there some new treatments that appeared recently to counteract exhaustion and pains ? Do people group themselves in associations to better fight against this disaster ?
Avatar f tn Throat cancer, also known as oropharyngeal cancer, refers to tumors that occur in the tonsils, base of the tongue and upper throat. Smoking and alcohol use have been associated risk factors, but in recent years throat cancers related to the sexually transmitted virus human papillomavirus (HPV) have been on the rise. HPV is an STD transmitted by oral and genital sex.
Avatar m tn I'd guess that the sizes of the largest nodes are right on the borderline of what might still be benign and not cancer. The lack of nasopharyngeal masses seems to rule oot plasmacytoma. Good luck.

748543 tn?1463449675 In simple terms incorrect posture is due to a twisted spine, which barring accidents or skeletal abnormalities- like a short leg, is due to an incorrect position of the skull. The position of the skull is influenced by the position of the lower jaw and ultimately the position of the jaw is mandated by the eruption pattern and final position of the teeth. Hence your bite is dictating your posture. Ever wonder why your chiropractic adjustments don't hold for long?
Avatar m tn Agreed, how many pictures of genital warts on google images look like the ones we all have or had! LOL, no wonder I thought my life was over for a while. What I really hate about most websites is the sensationalism like you said, much more common than unfactual info. It angers me that they list truths about HPV but never tell you the chances of each truth so you come away thinking that oral warts and throat cancer are just as every day occurrence as a wart outbreak on your junk.
Avatar n tn Pain and numbness left side of face and tongue. I was having burning sensations but neurontin 300mg 3x's a day has taken care of that. I'm also on baclofen 10mg 3x's a day for tremors and pain. Does this sound like MS or OPCA? I hope its neither but if it has to be one, hopefully its MS, at least there is treatment. OPCA is a death sentence, I know this because of family history. Also have MS in family and other autoimmune diseases, ie.. Lupus, RA, Degenerative joint, and Hypothyroid.
Avatar f tn Can someone tell me what kind of meds works best for the pain in the head. I tried Vicodin but got tired of being nausea, Then I was on Butalbital and that was worse-didnt help the pain. Now I have pain on the right side (tumor was left frontal). I had to start the Vicodin again to ease the pain but have to tolerate the nausea. How do you know if your brain is swelling? So many questions and no answers....
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar f tn I was having a lot of muscle twitches and felt feelings of vibration in my tongue and teeth so after a visit to my PCP, I was sent to a neurologist. He did a thorough exam of my reflexes and listened to all of my symptoms that I had then but also suffered from for years and suggested a Brain MRI with contrast. I had it done and the MRI was normal. He said he was confident I don't have MS but didn't have any other answers for me.
1118884 tn?1338596450 Have you read of Frieda Kahlo, the Mexican artist who made an art of her suffering? I once did a program on her when @ library. The images are hard to look at, until you know her story..and even then... I loved how she planned her death, down to what she wore before cremation. I like to take what is known and imagine what can be. Back to dreamland.

Avatar m tn After an unprotectd oral sex received from an escort and having protected vaginal sex, I developped a white tongue (not trush or bacteria) loss of appetit and eyebrows hair loss. i went to ALOT of doctors and no one one can tell me what I have. I did all STD tests all negative.
Avatar n tn An hour or so later you will be required to have a second scan with your heart relaxed and they will ask you to take some sprays of nitrate under the tongue to fully open your arteries. This can cause headaches in some people because your blood pressure drops. You will then have another scan for 20 minutes, again very exciting stuff. Once finished, they check to make sure the images are clear and you can go home.
Avatar f tn I always have the feeling of something stuck in my throat the lumps on my tongue are swollen. And seriously many different types of of symptoms headaches dizziness extreme fatigue ankles swell very dry itchy skin nauseous unexplained rashes that come and go heavy feeling in my pelvic area hurts mostly when coughing after sex ,only slightly during. Frequent infections lung and vag bacterial infections filled with yeast infection.
Avatar n tn My family doctor prescribed me a round of steroids, thinking there may be some kind of trauma to my tongue as a result of one of the novacaine shots going through my tongue during the original procedure. Those steroids did nothing. Meanwhile, I talked to a friend (as you can tell I was beginning to lose faith in my dentist) who is a nurse and she had me send her some pictures. She has a good friend who is a pediatric oral surgeon.
544292 tn?1268886268 And Like Nancy in my crazy red shoulder padded double breasted BLAZER, I JUST SAY NO TO DRUGS!!! ... and now I'll rest, try and let some of the bad energy of the pain and this last week go so I can work all weekend and next week too. One day at a time. I was pretty sure last night when I got home and was so tired and disoriented that today might be like this. It is worth it.No matter what. Getting off this stuff will save me a HUGE amount of pain in the future. I liked waking up happy!
519226 tn?1378994921 No one wants to be around her because she is so nasty. She always has to put people down, and it seems she is extremely jealous of me. Recently, she said in an extremely bitter tone, that she can't stand looking at me and my 2 siblings because we look like our grandmother and father. (What do we need to get plastic surgery?) She said she doesn't trust anyone, especially her own children. She's called me a liar and crazy. She is toxic and poisonous. She hates her kids.
Avatar f tn I think you have to go back to your doctor and discuss your elevated TGab with him. If he won't treat thyroid based on TGab, I think he should explain why. Also, thyroxine (TT4) is below range. This is another reason to treat. Your TSH is, unfortunately, "normal", and a lot of doctors base all their decisions on TSH, even though the order other tests. However, we already know you have a pituitary issue, so TSH is unreliable.
Avatar n tn It feels like something inside is rubbing agains something and is causing me pain and other weird sensations on the left side of my throat, back of my mouth, and the left side of my tongue. The only time I get relief from this is when I sleep. Some days I don't think I can live like this. I am on my third ENT doctor. The first one really never followed up on anything and took forever between visits.

Avatar n tn I have also come across a paper which describes a physical cause of globus pharyngeus where the epiglottis tip is curled backward towards and touches the base of the back of the tongue causing the sensation of a foreign body. Earlier this year, I first noticed my epiglottis sometimes becomes visible above the horizon made by the back of the tongue. This sometimes appears when clearing the throat but before swallowing. On swallowing, there is a click then the epiglottis disappears.
1257808 tn?1322765815 The reason that a midrange Free T3 is inadequate is that the range was established based on the total data base of patient tests. The limits were then established based on the assumption that 2.5% of patients were hypo. After finally concluding that there are many more than 2.5%, the AACE has revised their recommended range for TSH, but have not yet done the same for FT3 and FT4.
