You would think after 35 weeks that you would be in the clear. The best advice that I've gotten from folks is,be sure to tell your MD any problems your having,dont try to "tuff it out" You may need an Rx for sleep,pain anxiety.
Avatar m tn I don't know how you feel about needles, but iron is very easily lowered through blood donation. The needle they use at the blood bank is LARGER than the one doctors use to draw labs with, but if this isn't a problem for you, it might be wise to look into lowering your iron. The "Iron Disorders Institute" website has a lot of information on iron and disease, and this would be a good place to visit to learn more about what dangers high or even high/normal iron can cause.
Avatar n tn so what are the list of diseases he should be testing for? also are you saying that if he had a gall stone stuck he could have had jaundice without any stomach pain? are you saying that since he is seeing an improvement he should consider the stone was expelled from the system?
Avatar m tn Last night she poo'd all over the house and back sidewalk. I gave her phenobarb this morning, then she came to me with blood all over her mouth begging for her food. I washed her up, fed her and now she is sleeping. My husband said she wants food each time she takes her meds. I didn't realize this and waited a bit to feed her since she obviously had a stomach issue during the night.
Avatar n tn I ended up needing a blood transfusion... and not because I lost alot of blood... Our blood cells will break down under situations of extreme stress... yet doctors still continue to tell me that Thalassemia Minor should have no symptoms.... I am always tired god help me if I should run.. I get so out of breath so easily. I get heart palpatations off and on out of the blue, My hands and feet (mostly feet) are always cold!! I used to get bad headaches but not as much anymore...
Avatar f tn The way renal failure is supposed to work when it's Time, is that the toxins build up so high in the blood that they cross the blood-brain barrier. When that happens, the dog loses its personality and really isn't "there". Well, that's the textbook case. It never really happened with Chica. She just got slower and slower and finally stopped eating the last couple of days, but her personality was still intact. She still knew us and her pack mate, Maggie.

One day he went to do his number 2 and it was all blood and blood clots and he was very anemic.
