Avatar f tn However, prior to the onset of labor, you will notice some signs that are nature's way of telling you that labor is approaching. If you are not sure, call your physician or midwife to discuss your labor signs. In the event you are evaluated at the hospital as being in very early labor and sent home, it is common to feel disappointed, maybe even embarrassed. It is common for first-time mothers to make more than one trip to the hospital.
3742874 tn?1348018357 Well...yes, and no. Certainly these are possible signs of impending labor, but they are also signs of later third trimester pregnancy. Unfortunately, until labor actually starts, it's tough to predict. No doubt your body is getting ready though, and at 36 weeks it won't be long. It's good if baby can stay in at least another week or two though. All the best and wishing you a healthy, speedy and safe labor and delivery.
Avatar f tn In first time pregnancies, lightening may occur several weeks of just a few hours before the onset of labor. In subsequent pregnancies, lightening does not generally occur until just before labor begins. Weight loss - After all of those weeks and months of gaining weight, many women lose two or three pounds before labor even begins. Bursts of energy - Many women experience a burst of energy before the onset of labor.

Avatar n tn Ive been alittle dizzy and lightly nauseated since yesterday, but wonder maybe I am coming down with something.... or maybe its more symptoms of the medication. Idk. Anyway, I'm praying that maybe the symptoms of this medication is lightening up for me. I was in shock last night since I didnt feel drugged like usual.... maybe it takes time for our body to get used to this medication. Other news.... I think I am ovulating. I believe it started after my 3rd dose.
Avatar n tn Not a medical professional here, so just my opinion. The pain along the path of your shunt tube isn't unusual, and should get better with time. Did the cyst leave you with hydrocephalus? It can do that. If so, you need to tell your NS about the incidences of "leakage", since it is one of the common symptoms of hydro. Any problem with your gait? If you have a programmable shunt, easing some of your problems could be as simple as changing the setting on the shunt.
Avatar n tn I have absolutely NO SYMPTOMS of pregnancy and a blood test came out negative, as well as 4 HPTs. I called the Dr.'s office and he told me to wait a couple of weeks and come in to do a hormonal check. I'm really careful when it comes to my body, so I'm freaking out a little bit! I hope it's nothing serious and I'd be happy if I were preg.

Avatar n tn I'm no longer scared about driving, being alone, or that I'll convulse in public. One of the side effects of Zonegran is weight loss, which improved the symptoms of my other neurological disorder, Psuedotumor Cerebri. This was causing blindess, but I had an Optic Nerve Sheath Decompression on my right eye to drain excess fluid. I think it's important that one finds a patient (no pun intended), understanding doctor who isn't quick to diagnose and prescribe any "old" drug.
Avatar f tn After visiting nearly half a dozen doctors and none of them knew what I had. Conclusion is that this is more nutrition and this is probably why doctors can't figure it out because they aren't nutritionists. And so I started experimenting with vitamins and health activities. Here's how I solved my chill problems. 1. 8-9 Hours of sleep at night. Sleep somewhat relates to my chills because I was often tired when it hits. 2. Well fed.
181575 tn?1250202386 In HBeAg-positive patients, seroconversion to anti-HBe may occur during this phase, which may trigger a rise in serum aminotransferase levels and HBV DNA level. Although often asymptomatic, this transition can provoke symptoms of acute hepatitis, occasionally resulting in hepatic decompensation. Some patients who are HBsAg-positive have persistently low or undetectable HBV DNA and no elevation in serum ALT.
296334 tn?1237642024 To me it was not necessarily painful, it did catch me off guard the first few times then I found out I could recreate it by tensing my neck as I said This was one of the symptoms that led to my diagnosis of MS, this along with clumbsyness and loss of balance led to several MRIs with contrast of the spine and brain where they found several lessions for a difinative diagnosis.
298579 tn?1192250448 It's amazing to me that 14 - 18% of the population may be experiencing these symptoms and that 75% of these are women! We all know this is a MISERABLE disorder that truly messes with every aspect of sexual functioning. Yet apparently, many, if not most doctors have never heard about it! It outrages me that several of the articles I've read seem to suggest that it may be caused by being a "perfectionistic, high-strung woman"! BS!!!
Avatar n tn I also have symptoms of parasites and I found that like 80% of people in the US have some form of parasites in them. So, I ordered a parasite/colon cleanse and will do that for 2 months and see what happens. It's called, the worlds best parasite cleanse or something, here's a link where I bought it
Avatar f tn However, if one's diet contains artificial, processed, genetically modified, etc substances, you're body's warning signs would be swelling, bloating, laboured breathing, headaches, tiredness, constipation, confused thinking, forgetfulness, and the list goes on. Therefore, if you have any of these symptoms, your body is giving you the signals. Listen to your body.'ll hear it...beit a strong shout or a weak whisper....just listen.
Avatar n tn I have seen a neurologist that said my nerves were fine but put me onto a specialist in pain medicine who at first diagnosed me with referred/localised pain syndrome ( i forgot the medical name now) but after he did a bone scan he then put me onto a rheumatologist saying i had early signs of arthrtis.

Avatar f tn and giving way is more characteristic of ligamentous injuries. You don't have any of these symptoms which signify you are not having advanced stage of disease. You don't have hip pain or knee pain that rules out any nerve involvement. I think it might be due to result of a collateral ligament or meniscus problem (or both) until proven otherwise. I recommend you to see an orthopaedician at earliest and get imaging studies done for further evaluation.
Avatar n tn Upon reading all of these comments I realized I may of had some of the symptoms that some of you have posted and didn't realize it. I had irritated skin during my menstrual cycle around my vagina and anal area, I thought it was an allergy to pads. I have not had a yeast infection since my partial hystorectomy in Dec of last year. We recently went on vacation in Fl and swam in a heavily populated pool and the ocean.
Avatar n tn I have the same symptoms that you are all describing. I went through a myriad of test: X-Ray of my back & spine, ultrasound of my pelvis and abdomen, a C-Scan of my abdomen with dye. The good news is that they found a small sports injury hernia in my left inguinal area. The most concise procedure was the ultrasound. You could see the ripped wall on the screen.
