Avatar n tn Well, I'm in the middle of testing now but what I can tell you is that you are supposed to sleep less as you age. This is something you cannot ignore so please look into it even if it has nothing to do with the thyroid. One of the symptoms of hypothyroid that I know of is that your digestion slows down, this means you get more constipated and more time passes between bowel movements (which can lead to all sorts of problems by itself).
Avatar n tn It is like an illness in some men. My husband is the same, we were fine (actually we were the crazy in love couple for 25 years and sooo compatible), it actually started one day, most women can say the day it started. He completely changed, the look in his eyes. It is like a panic, i need to get out there. It is cruel beyond belief. I met another wife in same boat only 10 years ahead of me.
Avatar n tn At the clinic i go get tested at in HollyWood california, they have signs up with Gay men on them that read, YOU THINK HIV IS NO BIG DEAL, 500 PEOPLE IN LOS ANGELES WILL DIE FROM HIV THIS YEAR, BUT I THINK MOST OF THOSE PEOPLE ARE THE ONES THAT DON'T GET TESTED EARILY.Little there are gay men on this site also.Just read though the threads.PEACE.

Avatar n tn this runs in myfamily and I found it by searching our family tree roots, often in men in my tree and my father was diagnosed with hardening of arteries, I think when years ago they said ARTHRITIS is WAS NOT.
1815939 tn?1377995399 From Medscape: Liver Fibrosis Develops Early, Progresses Quickly After Hepatitis C Virus Seroconversion By Will Boggs MD, December 14, 2014 Liver fibrosis develops early after hepatitis C virus (HCV) seroconversion and progresses quickly to cirrhosis in many patients, according to new findings. "Within 10 years of HCV infection, about 18% have developed cirrhosis, and this is 3 times higher than controls," Dr. Adeel A.
Avatar n tn Because it is a genetic disorder in most cases of iron overload (but iron overload can be acquired as a secondary condition to blood transfusions and iron supplementation) women are affected equally as men however because women have menstruation they are protected early in life from the effects of iron loading, until later in life, when they are diagnosed 10-15 years later than men, usually after menopause (or hysterectomy).
Avatar n tn In my previous post, I referenced some other discussion boards where other men with the same symptom mostly report that it does indeed go away in 4 - 6 weeks. As a side note, my urologist found "trace" amounts of blood and protein in my urine, which he felt were not related, and not substantial enough to cause alarm. As a precaution, however, he put me on a two week course of Doxycycline.
Avatar m tn I have a continuous problem with thick mucous in my throat. I must clear my throat a hundred times a day. My larnyx gets so full of the thick mucous that I almost choke and it causes my eyes to water. When this happens I hack up about a quarter cup of the stuff. I went to an ENT specialist who diagnosed sinusitis due to restricted airflow because of a deviated septum. After two surgeries for this there is no improvment. I've tried Musinex and steroid nose sprays. Nothing seems to help.
Avatar f tn Meanwhile, the evidence so far justifies even more attention to healthy diets, weight control and physical activity among diabetics, the consensus panel says. And doctors should look carefully for any signs of early cancer in patients with diabetes. npr.
Avatar n tn I wondered if it were hormones or the extra 20# i carry cutting off circulation or nerves. I am active and healthy and only in my early 40s. My vibration feels like someone letting air out of an inflated balloon rapidly in 2-10 second intervals. I had wondered if it was a circulation problem but I have no other circulation symptoms. Who has been to doctors about their problem and what sorts of doctors have been consulted?
Avatar n tn Reading the above posts I notice people have been getting this in other parts of body so with the advent of this big one on my upper chest I am now concerned about having a bleed in a vital organ,( ie brain = catastophic results) I'm in my early 50's, rarely take pain relievers, and my only meds are Prevacid and Flovent, along with supplements, physically fit from lots of cardio and weightlifting, low BP and pulse.
Avatar n tn Though I think that is bull b/c I personally proven that diabetics can deploy before I left Afghanistan I had diabetes(they made me leave early though for early signs of diabetes) but didn't know officially I had it til months later.
Avatar n tn He said that the scans don't show any cause for this to be happening and it looks like it is curving in rather than the bone thinning in that area. At this point it isn't affecting my brain, so he wants me to repeat the scans in October and come back so he can see if there are any changes. Keep in touch if you find anything out about yours. and feel free to send me a message in my inbox - I have a watch on this post and my inbox and I recieve an email whenever anyone posts to it.
1202943 tn?1347844252 You don't necessarily need an Endo. Many of them specialize in diabetes, not thyroid. Others have the "Immaculate TSH Belief" and only want to test and treat by TSH results. That doesn't work. Others will also test Free T4, and then use "Reference Range Endocrinology", by which they will tell you that a test that falls anywhere within the range is adequate. That also doesn't work for many patients. What you need is a good thyroid doctor.
Avatar n tn When i was 15, i was wrestling around with some friends , and felt an odd pop in my lower abdoment along with a very weird sensation in my groin. Went to the bathroom, and noticed my penis and almost fully retracted into my abdomen and was stiff , even though it was in its "flaccid" state. I went to the doctor a few months later , (being a young teen i was embarrased) and he said he didnt know, but its probably nothing to worry about and it would probably resolve itself.
Avatar n tn Hello.. I'm 42. I have been experiencing issues with my prostate since my early '20's. The latest in the series is the vibrating penis sensation. I first noticed it about 3 weeks ago, after a 5 hour drive. During which time I was experiencing stiffness in my back. Without being overly repetitive, I have been experiencing similiar symptons as many of you. My question to you all is if you have notice any ED as a result of this?
Avatar n tn About 48 hours ago, I noticed this heat sensation in my left shin. At first I thought I was standing too close to a heat vent in the floor at work! It is a warm, sort of tingly sensation that lasts 5 seconds and occurs, I don't know, 10 times throughout the day. I wonder if I slept on the leg funny?? Stress?? I am 43 and in reasonably good health but seem to be a hypochondriac (spelling?) at times.
Avatar m tn Besides the episodes of ED, the others factor involved is lack of libido which is something I did not notice as much in the past because of being trained to believe it was all my diabetes. But now after all this time with good control and great circulation in general and careful examination of myself, It seems the issue is more a lack of libido. I have noticed that when there seems to be ED issues such as less firm erections, it's driven by a lack of interest.
Avatar n tn Sometimes it seems that it comes on later in the afternoon almost routine and then it sometimes happens out of the blue in the morning. I try to change my underwear twice a day and don't wear any underwear at nigh for bed. I'm not sure what triggers this...I know about 2.5 years ago I got a really nasty vaginal infection..Then it was treated and I've been tested for STD's all negative. I sometimes wonder if it came from the boyfriend at that time.
Avatar f tn Reglan (metoclopromadine) is a very cheap medication, unfortunately, it is also metabolized in the kidneys, so a too high dose results in toxic levels in the blood. My husband and I discovered that completely bypassing the GI tract by using reglan injections worked much better in the end. Chica didn't get the extra pyramidal side effects (extreme restlessness, shaking and trembling) from the reglan injections that she got from the oral meds.
Avatar n tn I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
Avatar n tn I have muscle spasm in or around the ribs on both sides (in the front under the breast and sometimes in the back at the same horizontal position), it feels like a ball rolling, in that it switches sides. It occurs even at night during sleep, painful enough to wake me. I only know that when I relax and stretch (the side where the knot is) using several positions I have to wait till it goes away, in many cases to have it return in other places described above.
Avatar n tn I can't nerrow it down to lack of oxygen or maybe diabeties because I've had high sugar levels in the past. However, its mostly during a change in the temperature cold/hot and mostly in my arms and shoulders and only if I move my arms or shoulders or if I stretch after a run or in the early morning cold weather.
Avatar n tn I myself had an ectopic pregnancy 2 years ago where they removed my left fallopian tube, now in Oct 2010 my husband and i started to try again but miscarried at 2 weeks, so very early, i then managed to get pregnant again in dec 2010 after waiting one month for my cycle to get back to normal so i could tell what date i would get pregnant, but am now miscarrying as i write this at 5 and a half weeks.
Avatar n tn painful urination, lower abdominal pain, vaginal discharge in women, discharge from the penis in men, or testicular pain in men. The usual treatment is antibiotics and infection resolves within one to two weeks. However, one study shows that there is an increased risks of chlamydia reinfection in both males and females in their 20s. (http://sti.bmj.com/cgi/content/abstract/77/1/33) On the other hand, itching and reddish rash at the tip of of the penis are symptoms of yeast infection in males.
Avatar n tn same here for months now started with flu like them to lungs, thought I was better after 12 weeks of flu, then the smells in my nose, sinus, lungs?..HORRID and some are very distinct and also some are multiple, some are triggered by certain smells, sometime I smell smoke, exhaust, rancid, just hard to explain, it drives me crazy! ]And my nose will burn also my lips. nothing really smells like it should and most things smell horrible, taste too....
Avatar f tn It seems to me, at least talking about the UK, that the HIV bandwagon is so well established that any mainstream respectable politician just about has to be on it. In addition, people in this country have access to antivirals which work, therefore are not dropping dead so much, so the horror and death is not among the voting public. It has become sanitised, acceptable.
Avatar n tn A few sufferers describe visual hallucinations such as black streaks out of the corner of their eyes especially early on in the course of the illness. Every one of us have been to multiple doctors, neurologists, ENT, even chiro's with no answers. We have been mocked by doctors, brushed aside, referred to psychiatrists, and have lost our ability to live a normal life. We have all have the usual brain scans and bloodwork which all appears normal.
Avatar n tn I also sleep on my right side with my arm up under my pillow to cradle my neck as i have severe neck arthritis from a car accident 6 or 7 years ago. i don't know if that is a factor in my numbness. i also notice that it goes numb more often on the days i do wear my bra. i would appreciate any advice or if you also have had a numb mid back, any suggestions.
