Avatar m tn I got diagnosed with epididymitis a week ago and the pain has just now began to leave. Is this common and how long does it normally take for the pain to go completely away along with the swelling? My scrotum hasn't swollen and i've had a ultrasound, blood test, and urine sample and all came back negitive for cancer or a tumor. I'm really frightened about it and hope that this is just epididymitis.

Avatar n tn I read alot about reversabel and NONreversable pulp inflammation.. yet, no one ever says how to "reverse" reversable inflammation. So, how do you do it?

Avatar f tn Hi there, Sorry you are going through this. I too had a cyst rupture in the past and ugh, it is certainly painful. The acute pain should subside in a couple days post rupture, the lingering pain from the irritation to your pelvic area from blood and contents of the cyst can last a couple weeks. Resting and ibuprofen should help with the pain from inflammation. There is really not anyting else I know of that can help. Take comfort in knowing it should be gone within another week.
Avatar f tn Physiotherapy should be started after healing of the ligament tear. Physiotherapy is done to reduce stiffness and to strengthen the ligament. Take pain killers such as ibuprofen or naproxen and apply ice packs to reduce pain and inflammation. Follow up with an orthopedician and go for present day scans to check healing. Take care!
Avatar m tn You need a complete physical examination and investigations like complete urine examination, urine culture, swab specimen from the genitalia and ultrasound lower abdomen to find out the cause.

Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.

And last, how long will it take to get back to a feeling where I want to do more than just lay around all day? Thank you all in advance for answering my questions.

I even ordered a new mattress in hopes that will offer more comfort for me. My current mattress is an older mattress on a hospital bed. I have a memory foam topper on it to help, but these days, it isn't. My new mattress is a very nice 12" memory foam type mattress that is suppose to mold to my physique, taking pressure off of my joints.

Avatar f tn I started having serious joint pain rotating through various body parts about 2 years later and was diagnosed with non-A/non-B hep that year, which was refined to a diagnosis of HCV as soon as the test was available. I've had to use a lot of pain meds over the years, for a long time using OxyContin as my primary relief, with Vicodin for breakthrough pain. My hepatologist has given his okay for no more than 4 Vicodin tablets per day, due to the acetominophen in it.

Avatar f tn NSAIDs work at the place of pain, working on the inflammation, same with Tylenol, but they are not good for long term use on your liver and stomach. Now opiates work on your brain, it is meant to cause euphoria to make you not care about the pain, that is how it works, but because of the taboo, Dr's and patience are reluctant to talk about that. Why?
Avatar f tn Now it's six weeks since I stopped the prednisone and methotrexate. I coasted for awhile, and then I started to get worse. A small unproblematic cyst started growing into a boil and the surrounding tissue started hardening into a mass. I was miserable at the thought of cycling through those drugs again. I read a post on the web about a man who had a giant boil on his side and self-healed with "healing clay." Then I did a bit more research and bought some calcium bentonite clay.
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 D) Avoid singing, talking, or chewing too much E) Keep slack-jawed, avoiding bringing or clenching your teeth together F) If it's alright with your doctor- be sure and ask you cardiologist, take 600 mg of ibuprofen for inflammation when the pain is extra bad, but cyclic would likely be a bad idea (without even asking your doctor) right now with your heart problem, as ibuprofen can increase risk of heart attack, I believe.

1515564 tn?1431386900 I also have some faith for it to heal on it's own without any treatment. Although the pain can reach to tearing point....but I'm trying to not even take ibuprofen. I'm also teaching myself to have greater pain tolerance....hope this will go away after 14.5 months. I do believe that more disburtance to gm by surgery, cutting...etc...will make the body more confused and more please let us pray that someone will come out with a plan really works...
566544 tn?1219441277 My pain problem is going to be with me for life, and I need to be able to manage it without opiates. I will need more back surgeries in time, and I fear having to use opiates for a short time, but at least for "normal" life, I don't want drugs ever again. So far, my efforts include faithfully going to physical therapy, FINALLY loosing weight (I wish I wouldve known that methadone would cause such weight gain), being more active, improving my diet, and keeping positive.
