Avatar n tn Does anyone know where in St. Louis, MO offers P24 HIV antigen testing? Went to a strip club and the dancer touched the tip of my wang with her finger. I'm afraid she might have had vaginal fluid on her hands.
Avatar m tn A little over 3 weeks ago I made the stupid mistake of getting a very expensive escort (african american female in mid 20's) in St. Louis. I was very intoxicated and it was the worst mistake of my life. She gave me oral and then we had vaginal sex for approximately 10-15 minutes. I believe I actually passed out in the middle of it. I remember her putting a condom on me and I am almost certain that we finished using the condom as the next day it was in the trash can.

Avatar m tn Two nights ago I was at a strip club with clients in St Louis, and a stripper placed her breast and nipple in my mouth. Since then I have been freaked out about possibly catching a STD, including HIV, from this. I don't think I'm being rational and think perhaps I'm being silly, but I am not sure and am worried. I haven't told my wife, as I feel very stupid about the whole situation, and I'm worried about being intimate with her now. Do I have anything to worry about?

Avatar n tn Possibly this heavy alcohol use could cause the emergence of a full blown, chronic HCV infection, newly detectable by standard blood testing. I just came across this NIH study, and article from a few years ago, which appeared in Hepatology. Notice, way down in the article, the comments about researchers confusion over alcohol's role in the acquisition of HCV.

Avatar n tn My husband began taking lorcet plus about 1.5 yrs ago for back pain due to injury in a car accident in 2001. He is now taking 3-4 per day. It is hard for him to get out of bed each day and surgery has been mentioned as an option to relieve his pain. I am terrified he is getting addicted to lorcet/hydrocodone. He is a recovering alcoholic/drug addict (7 years). I am so afraid this will be devastating. He is also afraid of this medicine but doesn't know what to do to handle his back pain.

These are the foods that the Candida live on.. Oh well, I hope this information helps everyone.. Maybe we'll actually find something that gets rid of this soon...
Avatar n tn I was gong to post a letter of thanks to the forum. I too have had ALL of the cardiac testing done and am now on to more GI testing. I already take meds for ulcers, HH, GERD and IBS. I had developed a new symptom and was ABSOLUTLY SURE that I had progressed to Cancer. I am due to be scoped again on WED. and have been a nervous wreck. My anxiety has reached a level so high that I actually tried to join the forum to write my letter of thanks and DID NOT remember already being a member.
