Avatar n tn Tinnitus may present with a ringing, roaring, or clicking sound in the ear and may be associated with hearing loss, medication side effect, part of aging, or a symptom of other health problems, such as allergies, high or low blood pressure, tumors and problems in the heart, blood vessels, jaw and neck. To make sure that the drops go in, you can have another person to give the drops if possible.
Avatar m tn A few weeks ago I read that a Kenyan college student girl who had been transmitted with HIV by a guy slept with 325 men, in order to pass HIV to them for revenge!! And the news said 300 men that had sex with her were confirmed to catch HIV from her!!! That is unbelievable! Since I used to believe HIV from female to male is not that easy to transmit(about 1/1000), how can she infect 300 men out of 325 in two years? This news reminds me of my own story...
Avatar f tn Hello Dr, My first part of the question is a little hard to explain: If a standard 3rd Gen HIV test is said to be, let's say, 80% reliable in detecting a rare HIV strain (HIV-2, Group O, or Group N doesn't matter) and 10 samples of one of these rare strains were tested,2 of them would be unreactive. Now my question is, would the 2 strains that were not detected ALWAYS be undetected if retested with the same exact test or would there be an 80% chance each time?
Avatar n tn I am a male and i had oral sex given to me by a prostitute in kenya where the infection rate is so high. it was done without a condom. i could not see any presence of blood when i was given the blow job. we also had intercourse this time protected with a latex condom.. 2 weeks after the incident, i started experiencing hypersilvation. is this a sign of HIV infection? i have no other signs like flu headache... it 4 weeks since the incident. what are the chances that i am infected.
Avatar m tn In other words, the problem here is one of mental health, not HIV risk. My guess is you are going to continue to worry about this until and unless you seek professional counseling about it. I make this suggestion from compassion, not criticism. Trust me on this: you were not at risk and are not infected with HIV; and there are no facts you can think of, or scenarious your mind might consider, that would change my opinion or advice.

Avatar m tn Dear Doctors, As you can see on me earlier posts, i'm a very nervous guy and i am very scared of diseases. So here it goes: last September i needed to take antibiotics for an infection. a few days later a got a strange itch/prickling sensation all over my body. i got scared and thought it was hodgkins itch. The itch/tingling went only away when i was really enjoying myself with friends or so but the next day it came back. I went to the doctor and he did a cbc and everything was normal.

432073 tn?1204144768 I Volunteered in Kenya for three months in 2005. While I was there, I contracted a bladder infection from swimming in an overcrowded pool. I didn't realize it at the time, but the symptoms started while I was there and continued for several months afterwards until it progressed into a kidney infection. I took antibiotics for the kidney infection and was fine. Ever since I have had recurring bladder infections/UTIs at least twice a month. The symptoms are minimal.

Avatar n tn HIV can't survive outside the body. Therefore you were at no risk from infection from toilet paper.
Avatar n tn I havnt seen a signle report showing a conformed case of AIDS without HIV antibodies. As Teak said , it could impact becouase of HAART or Latest stage of AIDS in which an immune system is collapsed and unable to produce certain antibodies.
