1450453 tn?1293764571 Most recent doctor treating me believes i may have lyme and has sent a western blot off, with no posetive elisia.

Avatar n tn What can I do to try to head it off before I get sick? Is this normal or do I have an immune system issue?
Avatar f tn I don't know if this is related, but starting in 2014 I was diagnosed with Immune Thrombocytopenia Purpura, in which my immune system kills my platelets. However, I seem to have been cured of it recently. Now that I am going to go live by myself for college, I'm really worried about my menstrual cramps. Pain killers don't help much because I faint anyways. How can I deal with this? I'm scared of missing classes and important things or injuring myself. Any tips would be so great!
228463 tn?1216765121 MS symptoms sometimes subside completely during pregnancy when the estrogen levels are highest and then return when the BIG E subsides after birth. The immune system also plays a role here. In your menstrual cycle the estrogen hits rock bottom 4 to 5 days before your period. In fact, the link seemed so promising that a few years back there were come clinical trials to see of adding in estrogen might actually help treat MS. I think they found it didn't really.
Avatar n tn Could this be because of all the medication I have to take and of my immune system being so low? I have asked the doctors about the situation and have not done anything to help me. What should I do?
Avatar n tn And two is that I am in my fifties and I suffer from Chron's Disease and already have a fairly weak immune system. Would that also be a factor to consider? The final thing is that when this happened a few days ago I was suffering from a cold and a sore throat. All in all, I consider myself very foolish and would appreciate any advice you may offer.
Avatar n tn This is an immune system issue. When pregnant some components of your immune system are down regulated (or modulated in a particular way) otherwise the immune system would attack the embryo. This modulation is the reason why women with a variety of immune related issues have reduced symptoms or are symptom free during pregnancy. The issue for you however is that your immune system is activated unnecessarily at times.
Avatar m tn I haven't come across any correlations between a depressed immune system and perimenopause. Has anyone else experienced this? If so, any suggestions on how to deal with this? Thanks!
Avatar n tn I cannot afford to miss too much more school, not to mention it hurts A LOT. I did see something about immune system being less effective a few days before your period but I don't think I'd trust it since the man writing it seemed a few fries short of a happy meal. Other than that I have found Nothing!. How is it that you can find 100 sites dedicated to proper care of mullets and not one explaining either why this is happening or how to make it stop?
Avatar n tn I know when I am ovulating!) and the second crash is the 2nd day of the menstrual period. Now let me discribe a "crash" I could be having the greatest day of my life and in a flash I will feel that something horrible is going to happen...
Avatar n tn Effective early in infection (3-5 weeks post-exposure) as the virus replicates unchecked by the immune system during this period, but once the immune system starts combatting the virus, p24 detection can drop below detection levels. Detects at 75% efficiency at 4 weeks. it is used in conjunction with the Ab tests described above at 4 weeks as the 80% efficiency of those tests plus the 75% efficiency of the p24 test combines to give a 95% detection efficiency.
569957 tn?1216911677 Hi, This seems be an allergic reaction. Allergies are common in the summer months. Allergy is caused by an oversensitive immune system, which leads to a misdirected immune response. Common allergens include pollen, mold, pet dander, and dust. Food and drug allergies are common. Allergic reactions can also be caused by insect bites, jewelry, cosmetics, and other substances. Some people have allergy-like reactions to hot or cold temperatures, sunlight, or other physical stimuli.
Avatar n tn Usually it is about a week or few days before my period. I'm about to have my period 7 days ago but it is late. I'm not pregnant and feel really bloated. I had my night sweat last night and all the chills that I used to feel just before I get my period. Not sure if I blame it on recent traveling and my cold mediation during my vacation 2 weeks ago that could have delayed my period. Or I could be starting perimenopause. Anyone experienced the same when they were starting perimenopause.
Avatar n tn No, it is not normal to have a period after having a hysterectomy. However, some women refer to any kind of vaginal bleeding as a period. A "period" actually refers to the cyclic build up of the endometrial lining of the uterine cavity, that is shed approx 2 weeks after an egg is released and not fertilized. By definition, you don't have a uterus, no endometrium, and hence shouldn't be having menstruation.
Avatar n tn I need advice im only 16. And well My period last month was around the 18th of April right. Well I didnt start till 2 days Ago. And Ive had unprotected sex with my boyfriend a lot in the Month of may. Like around the 17th. We think I had a miscarriage because of my symptoms. I had light bleeding in the morning after we had sex and he came in me. Then it stopped and later on I started bleeding. I thought it was my period as the day got longer I realized I was on my period.
Avatar n tn cells. It is a completely normal immune system function and is what keeps you healthy. It just unfortunately has a negative effect on pregnancy. My husband is RH-positive so we have basically a 50% chance of producing a child with RH-positive blood. I miscarried at 5/6 weeks so it is unlikely that my RH factor is the reason for my miscarriage, however there are precautions you can take to help with future pregnancies if you have RH-negative blood.
Avatar f tn Desensitization involves a process of supplying increasing doses of the allergen, either sub-lingually or by hypodermic injection in order to trick the immune system to eventually modify its response to the allergen. It is like retraining the immune system in a way. Allergy shots fall in this area of therapy (immunotherapy). My suggestion would be to checkout holistic allergy elimination first, as I mentioned in my original post. Cheers!
Avatar n tn He thinks the cause of it comes from a part of the brain that controls a certain type of hormone. He said that is controls your immune system all the way to your menstrual cycle. I had a compromised immune system in June that took my white blood cell count down to 100, they usually only find that with someone with full blown AIDS (which came back negative). They had no answer.
5264083 tn?1404669334 Our bodies are meant to fight infections as this builds our immunity. Antibiotics destroy the immune system. Fortunately, acidophilus can build the immune back up. Also, if you are prone to getting UTI's like me, start taking cranberry supplements daily. This will help flush our e-coli bacteria from building up in your urinary tract.
Avatar n tn im not a md but it sounds like a hormonal problem given that it happens at every menstrual cycle. if it only on one axilla, probably not an infection. have it checked out with your dr. some people breakout during their periods.have them check possibly your thyroid and hormonal levels before and during your cycle.
Avatar n tn I just really hope that I can take those pills and start my period soon. Did the doctors ever tell you why they thought you had stopped your period, or was it just one of those things that they didn't have an answer for? And was the period extreemly painfull as well once you took the ten pills?
Avatar n tn I am having some cramping which feels similar to menstrual cramps, but nothing has happened yet. I've been having pg symptoms, headaches, prominent veins, sore dark nipples, ect., and just recently a sore throat, which some say is caused by your immune system lowering during early pregnancy. (but that's just wishful thinking on my part right now prob) I have taken several different brand hpt, all had very very faint lines so I assume they are neg.
Avatar m tn and now she is experiencing hair loss, for time to time during fertile period she is experiencing body heat but no fever, and also fatigue.

Avatar f tn The symptoms include excessively painful cramping before and during your menstrual period. Make a note of when the menstrual like cramps during exercise occur – if you find they fall around your period, you may wish to get your thyroid tested. Hormones Unexplained cramping during exercise can be a result of hormones. Menstrual cramps are caused by hormones related to your period, and intense exercise may trigger a hormonal response during other times of your cycle.

Avatar f tn With autoimmune disorders, the immune system reacts to normal body tissues. What causes the immune system to no longer tell the difference between healthy body tissues and antigens is unknown. One theory is that some microorganisms (such as bacteria) and drugs may trigger some of these changes, especially in people who have genes that make them more likely to get autoimmune disorders.
Avatar m tn But thrush has me worried, given I have no obvious reason for my immune system being down to get thrush, despite it being flu-season. Could Thrush by a HIV symptom despite the early antibody test?
