Avatar m tn My symtons include excessive thin mucus in upper sinus, sometimes I can blow it our clear; in the middle way, I have crust accumulated in my nostril and sometimes I can pick and get it out (quiet a bit); and in my lower breath path or deep in my throat, I have thickened mucus and gel like tiny balls and hard to get them out. I have tried different things to reduce the mucus secreation. However none of them has been proven effective or without side effect. Lately I started to us SinusWars2.
Avatar n tn in the last two weeks i have had three blood vessels just pop in my fingers. i was not doing anything out of the ordinary. what could be causing this? should there be a cause for concern?
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.
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 For the last week or so now I have had a very slight, high-frequency vibrating sensation in my penis (it feels like it is in my urethra, from about the base of the glans to the base of the penis). It feels like varying degrees of the following sensations: - a cellphone vibrating in my pocket - a stream of fluid flowing through the urethra (without the sensation of exiting the glans) It is not usually constant, but is rhythmic, that is, will come and go in intervals...
Avatar n tn I have tried to find info on this and sciatica seems to fit the bill more than anything, but everyone says that starts in the thigh and I don't have pain in my thigh. It is quick, severe, and feels like someone is shocking me. I would guess that a shocking pain would be associated with a nerve being pinched. Let me know if you find out anything else.
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 There are probably many other causes for this malady, and the generic name acanthosis nigricans just puts a name to it. Wikipedia lists diabetes and cancer as causes, but I'd check out the simple things first like pH, and moisture (try cornstarch or talc for moisture) before spending $200 for a tube of something from the doctor. Still, checking for diabetes is cheap and you can do it yourself, often at local pharmacies or if you have a friend with a glucose meter.
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.
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 6 I was diagnosed with type II Diabetes. This is only the tip of the iceburg on how health providers in this country have neglected my health. I have yet to see a so-called "specialist" that actually is helpful in any way! Of course, you are not allowed to contact any sort of specialist doctors in the UK. British citizens are treated like retarded children. If your GP [regular doctor] does not make an appointment for you ...then you don't see a specialist in this country.
4879855 tn?1360443797 Yeah, wouldn't want to do that taste test! Apparently, observant doctors used to diagnose diabetes in men by noticing little sugar crystals on the shoes (from the guys not aiming so well). Obesity is actually a risk factor for type 2 diabetes, not a symptom. As you said, people with not enough insulin or who are insulin resistant can't properly transfer sugar in the blood to the cells where it is needed.
Avatar m tn I have no STD's (been checked several times), nor does my girlfriend who is pregnant so i know everything is in working order so to speak...except from this cut. I am 27 and otherwise fit and healthy, please can someone help?
220090 tn?1379170787 In women and children, GGT upper reference limits increase gradually with age, and are considerably lower than those in adult men. Separate reference limits should be established for men and women, and for different age ranges in women and children. In children, this will probably require a cooperative effort of laboratories to obtain adequate numbers of specimens from healthy children. GGT is slightly more sensitive than ALP in obstructive liver disease.
535822 tn?1443980380 • The government claims that every single air traveler must be intimately searched and confirmed harmless in order to protect the safety of a few hundred passengers on the plane, but that very same government conducts no safety testing whatsoever on each batch of toxic fluoride chemicals dumped into municipal water supplies that threaten the health of tens of millions!
Avatar m tn Urinary tract infections (UTIs) and retrograde ejaculation are 2 other possibilities. In men, the most common source of the infection is the prostate gland (prostatitis). Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
921323 tn?1268679412 There are reports of increased risk of diabetes, carpal tunnel syndrome, joint problems, and possibly heart disease. In the end, HGH – like many supplements – is being used by people as a substitute for making lifestyle changes. You can argue that doctors do this all the time. We place people on blood pressure medications and cholesterol medicine when the combination of diet and exercise just doesn’t cut it.
Avatar f tn "hcv rna at 4 weeks and that was neg." How soon after exposure to HCV can HCV RNA be detected by PCR? HCV RNA appears in blood and can be detected as early as 2–3 weeks after infection. http://www.cdc.gov/hepatitis/HCV/HCVfaq.htm#c5 "could i have tested too soon? my urine has a lot of blood in it now at week 6" Blood in urine (hematuria) Causes In hematuria, your kidneys — or other parts of your urinary tract — allow blood cells to leak into urine.
Avatar m tn She is an endocrine specialist in pituitary tumors. I do have diabetes type 2. I welcome any informative comments on diet, this condition or items I should consider.
Avatar m tn I'm reasonably confident you have no urethritis or meatitis, in which case NGU is not an issue and trich rarely causes symptoms in men -- and can't be acquired by oral sex. Probably neither can the mycoplasmas or ureaplasma. As for herpes, when it causes urethritis/meatitis, it is generally more severe than you describe, and would always clear up within a week or two; persisting symptoms this long can't be herpes. Follow through on your planned visit to the urologist.
Avatar m tn Experience in treatment of seizures has shown that drowsiness has occurred in approximately 50% of patients and ataxia in approximately 30%. In some cases, these may diminish with time; behavior problems have been noted in approximately 25% of patients.
Avatar f tn Additionally, Pre~Seed contains a naturally occurring plant sugar (arabinogalactan) which protects cell function, including having antioxidant-like activity. Antioxidant levels can be severely decreased in semen from men with fertility problems (see Reference Library) Available as single use applicators which can be applied before making love for enhanced spontaneity.
Avatar m tn Does fasting typically affect the liver function tests? My doctor told me I didn't need to fast before a bunch of tests that were recently done. So I ate lunch (bean burrito) and had a diet coke about 2 hours before the tests ... I need a clean bill of health for a job I have been offered. Liver function tests were high as well as sugar. I'm sure the sugar was caused by eating but what about the liver function tests? They weren't *way* out of line ...
Avatar m tn there are men and women in the patients, the proportion of men is greater than women, and the onset time is concentrated on puberty, that is, after 11 years of age. Also, patients develop in adulthood. To be sure, it won't develop until it's undeveloped. Here are the common features that patients have summed up: 1.the body has a bad smell, smell is not one, often change. 2. most people begin to suffering this disease from puberty. 3.

192055 tn?1263559137 No, he is not overweight. Good shape, we are both in the Army. Adrenaline causes it... when he is scared. Throughout working out, he has to pull it when it starts going in. I don't see how its happening... but it does....
Avatar m tn I will be seeing a top hormone doctor next week in the states regarding my on going struggles. I will update everyone on the progress. Can you explain what you mean by getting "thinner" and the pain? Where does the pain come from and what is it like? I do get testicular pain now and again due to the varicocele and sometimes tingling in the penis head/glans which can be painful at times.
