Avatar m tn I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it.
Avatar f tn And I'm now really worried about the neutropenia and its possible causes. Is it possible to have an overactive thyroid with levels showing up within normal range? Dr's often think its my thyroid till they see my results because my symptoms match exactly to it.
1539714 tn?1298626962 I have lost abit of weight but I know this is because of the gym and I eat a lot better, this has had a better effect on my heartburn too. The heartburn hasn't stopped completly but it's not as bad. I don't understand why the rhuematoogist or doctors cant find a cause for my pain and sickness some times, I really need to know. Maybe they never will know. I pray its nothing live threating but they reasure me all the time and tell me it is nothing serious or to worry about.
Avatar m tn I've also heard that Lyme testing done by the NHS is almost useless. Doctors are simply not allowed to treat for it without an NHS positive test, so that forces you into private medicine. Since you're already negative, you'll need a private doc to order testing in Germany or at IGeneX in the U.S. I personally would ask for every Bartonella test the NHS offers in hopes I showed a positive on one or more of them.

Avatar m tn If I'm not mistaken, BC would be under Canada's National Health Care System. It's possible that NHS guidelines prohibit labs from running FT3 and FT4 and/or antibodies, unless TSH is abnormal, even with a doctor's orders. This is because of the belief that anyone who is hypothyroid will have a high TSH. We see this with patients in U.K, but I've never run across it in Canada.
Avatar n tn Symtoms are; chest tightness, dull ab pain just below breast bone, nausia, heartburn, loose bowels and genrally not feeling very well. I take zantac which seems to help but no body seems to think it is worth doing an endoscopy as I am only 28( male, non smoker used to drink)I have even offered to pay for it only to be told I would be wasting my money! I get very anxious and I know this makes me worse but what should I do?
Avatar n tn The globus sensation of something stuck is not always present but when present, causes periods of retching to the point of violent choking. The retching episodes are short bursts of a few seconds and can occur once or several times a day, but not every day. The retching frequency slowly builds up over a period of several weeks where the frequency of retching maximises then subsides after violent retching.
Avatar n tn (1) the esophogus, which is a muscle, or series of circular muscles, hurts, like any muscle that is over-exerted -- particularly since much of the belching is rather "vigorous"; and (2) the belching creates a feeling of semi-nauseousness. I have only experienced an acid taste on a few occasions, although endoscopy indicated esophogitis and EMT (?) (esophogael motility test) and 24-hour ph probe indicated an abnormal amount of acid in my esophogus.
748543 tn?1463449675 What's more is that I find that dental malocclusion is frequently one of the principle causes of the TMD. The article went on commenting that MRI and CAT scans are among the biggest advances in diagnosis of TMD, that is just ludicrous.While those are valuable diagnostic tools they do not show what is the underlying cause of the misalignment. I frequently find that to be the malocclusion.
Avatar n tn One gastrointerologist tell me it's heartburn (but it's not related to the food i eat!), cardiologists tell me i'm healthy as a clam, lung specialist tell me nothing. I'm sorry you have to deal with this too. It can really get a person down!
Avatar m tn 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 n tn The mucous sliding down the back of my throat is still everpresent, and causes me to constantly clear my throat, which oftentimes triggers a coughing episode, though the coughing has subsided considerably. Since my daughter recently had a c-section and has two other children, she's needed me to help her and I'm afraid to go anywhere near the newborn, not knowing if this mucous thing with the accompanying cough is contagious or not.
Avatar m tn I also had a crown that had a titanium pin removed, as well as the other 4 gold crowns because the gold interacts with titanium, causing the release of titanium ions, which causes the problems. The crowns/pin removal was at the end of 2010. It's been two months, and so far, there has been no real reduction of the pleural effusions, though I have seen improvement in the swelling in my hands. It's very hard to stop all intake of titanium dioxide.
Avatar n tn Don't eat foods then soon afterwards end up in a horizontal position. NEVER eat foods that causes heartburn and gas pains. People who commonly take ant-acids are people who simply don't pay attention to what their body is telling them. Also, there are some foods like pastas and cereals that your body doesn't have the enzymes to digest. You may not been diagnosed with Crohn's disease but you still may have those type of symptoms from certain foods.
Avatar n tn I was sedated but awake during the procedure but the medication that they use causes a bit of amnesia so I don't really remember much. I do remember some parts of the test but I was never really stressed. It's hard to think that they can pass a tube into your small intestine and you don't remember it.
Avatar f tn I need to gurgle because if I don't, I can feel the air trapped in my upper stomach and it causes irritation to my vagus nerve and then causes my heart to skip.
Avatar m tn The medical way is with surgery—stick an endoscope up your nostril and suck enough of it out to end the infection. This usually works, but it sometimes causes complications, or scarring, and the infection often returns. This guide will show you a simple and extremely effective way to get the saline solution where it needs to go, and get rid of your sinus problem. I am not a doctor, but my father was a highly respected family physician.
Avatar n tn My breasts aren't tender but i think they might be just a little bigger. I have been nausceous on and off. Is heartburn a symptom of pregnancy? I have been having that a lot lately and don't normally have it.
Avatar n tn For years I had pain in my left upper quadrant right under my ribs. It varied in intensity from hour to hour, day to day. I came to the conclusion that maybe I, unlike the majority of people, felt stomach pain there instead of right in the center. This assumption proved correct when I developed a lump feeling in my throat and then chest pains, that after 8 months saw a doctor for. I was diagnosed with esophageal reflux and put on Prilosec. I never got "heartburn".
1425146 tn?1282765484 he said alcoholism is the *only* thing that causes that - turns out, I have pernicious anemia, which also causes it. During those years of fatigue, my weight was also going up and down - once down to 75 lbs when I was 46 yrs old - no doctor ever even suggested checking my thyroid and at that time, I had no inkling there could be an issue there. I think it's a total shame that so many of us have/had to argue, beg and plead with doctors to get the treatment we need.
Avatar n tn Pressure in your upper abdomen, especially associated with heartburn. Possible Causes: Hiatal hernia Action to Take: Make an appointment with your doctor. You can also help yourself by avoiding large meals (especially within three hours of bedtime), raising the head of your bed by 4 to 6 inches, and not lying down for three hours after eating.
Avatar f tn that will cause stress which causes more palpatations which is a vicious cycle. had all the cardio tests including EKG, echo, cardiolite adn the heart cath too. valves all good, no clots, no clogs, no heart issues. So why is my heart not beating right??? taking xanax to calm me down because it is so stressful. makes me tired, no energy. went back to the digestive doc last week. here is what i am learning.
Avatar n tn I have been dizzy, light-headed, sick to my stomach, rapid heart rate and low blood pressure at the same time, pains in my stomach (sharp and crampy) dull pain in my ribs, cronic heartburn and major anxiety. This has all been building up for some time now. At about 3 months, my daughter began having many tummy troubles and just now, at 1 year, diagnosed with reflux. I was also recently diagnosed as having reflux (by a different doctor) as well as a number of different diagnoses.
Avatar n tn Chlorpheniramine is in a class of medications called antihistamines. It works by blocking the action of histamine, a substance in the body that causes allergic symptoms.
Avatar n tn Three weeks later I'm still having headache, nausea, and my chest hurts. Any activity causes heavy sweating and shortness of breath, and the chest pains have me worried to death. My head hurts behind my right eye and feels like a pounding in the top of my head. It's not typical of migraines I've had before. I'm tired of meds and refused pain shots due to the fact that I believe they might mask any real symptoms of something else.
363682 tn?1299492962 This may be a normal reaction of your body since hot and spicy meals as well as alcohol may cause dilation of blood vessels and increase the blood flow to the area which causes the flushing. However,it is best to have this assessed by your physician.Hormonal imbalance, an underlying allergic reaction,and certain medications may cause this. Have your cervical spine checked by your physician. A cervical spine headache may be a differential.
Avatar f tn Sometimes being dehydrated and cold causes the body to rehydrate faster than it should and you quickly sweat it all out because you try hard to warm yourself up because of the chill itself. 6. Super Warm Bath every night with a bit of sea salt in water. This helped calm the body and rehydrate it from skin down. Worked for me. Less chills. These 5 things helped me out a lot. It might not work for you guys because we are all different but it takes some experimenting to see what you lack.
