Avatar m tn I also suffered nerve like pain from buttock down back of right leg. I am now left with after 5 months from this incident pelvic pain,sciatica type pain, itching and burning on scrotum from time to time but less severe than before. I also wake with watery eyes, sinus congestion, white stuff on corners of mouth every day since exposure.

168348 tn?1379360675 Ugh! Try to stay hydrated and try a BART diet (bananas, applesauce, rice, toast). Don't want to overstimulate your system anymore than it already is. A lot of folks don't drink the local water, but don't think about what the ice cubes in their drinks are made from. Hope it passes quickly. You could always think of it as a free "souvenier" from your trip? Would suck if this lasted longer than your trip did.
Avatar f tn 2 wks ago left parotid gland swelled, dr said was from virus or stone. It drained but other symptoms remain. Left cheekbone hurts as of 3 days ago. Left neck lymph node is swollen and my armpits occasionally hurt as though they are also swollen. Have seen my GP 3X since Oct & dr at walk-in clinic 2X since April, no diagnosis from either. Current symptoms similar to sudden onset of fatigue, dizziness, occasional sore throat & earache in 2006.
Avatar n tn I had them today so bad and afterwards I burp sour, yet they say they're not coming from the stomach. Go figure. Thanks for listening. My email address is ***@**** if you can figure out something else for me. By the way I just took a teaspoon of maalox.
Avatar m tn While at Mexico, me and my friend had a couple drinks and ended up at a spa place where I received a hand job from a prostitute who rubbed her vagina. The prostitute gave me oral sex with a condom first, then a hand job without a condom after (even though her hands were technically contaminated because she rubbed her vagina earlier) Is this vaginal-contaminated-finger hand job literally the same risk for HIV as someone who had vaginal intercourse without a condom?
Avatar n tn Hi delcocat, I too suffer from atrial fibrillation due to stomach gas although not as bad as some of the other posters on this forum. One product that helped me tremendously id Digest RC. It is made with natural extracts and has been used in Europe for the last fifty years. Sells for about $15 dollars online (30 capsules two capsules a day usually). If you buy your supplements from Life Extension and you're a member it is cheaper still. Hope this helps. Website: http://www.cxresearch.
Avatar f tn I had NO cold virus on Tx, but more bacterial infections (stomach bugs 2 or 3 times) but 5 moths post Tx,a cold/flu virus for a month!!!
Avatar m tn maybe to stop the virus from replicating or to get a hold of it,so when peg. is started,the virus will take a hard hit initially? Rocker, Thanks for the imfo. on the ginger. Definately going to look into the suppliment end of this subject to.
Avatar n tn I usually pass out trying to get back to my bedroom where I keep Phenagren by my bed just in case an episode happens. I hoard these from family stomach viruses. No doctor has prescribed them for me on my description of my symptoms. Only a "call me" if it happens again. These episodes happen at night and if I don't have Phenagren to take, it would last for days. Drs. have also said what they thought it was (whatever that was) would not be helped by Phenagren.
242516 tn?1368227505 Since the US strain is a genetic match to the Mexico strain, officials are concerned about the potential of deaths in America from swine flu. In Mexico there have been many deaths from pneumonia that sounds like ARDS to me. You can protect yourself by avoiding those who cough, ask those who do to cover their cough (not with their hands, eg. with a mask), practice good hygiene with hand washing and don't touch your own eyes, nose and mouth.
Avatar n tn I was in Mexico for 2 years from 2004-2006 as a missionary for my church. I was sick for the majority of the time, with a variety of symptoms. After returning home, things got better, but it wasn't very long before i got sick again. My main symptoms have been: Fatigue, headaches (top of the head and they last all is a constant pain that i have needed oxycotin prescribed to help with the pain.), loss of appetite, sensitive stomach, i heal slower, and i have major trouble waking up.
Avatar f tn I had my IVF done in Mexico so I am not sure how long you were gold to wait before the bpt. When did you have yours transferred and when are you going to take the bpt?
Avatar m tn is really great against the Hep-C virus. Virgin Coconut Oil is the most abundant natural source of lauric acid available. This is really good against the virus. (Link: 2) Sunflower Seeds (For Virus): They contain Omega Fatty 3 Acids, which is good in reducing long-term complications of liver injury due to Fibrosis and Cirrhosis.
Avatar n tn 9 weeks ago I had sex w/ a girl in Mexico. A local. I don't think a prostitute because I don't remember paying her. We had sex and the condom fell off during sex. So basically I had unprotected sex with her. The next day I saw some blood on the sheets and was not sure if it was from her or blankets already like that Two weeks before trip I had received results for STD's and they were neg. except for Clamidia.

Avatar n tn One reason for the inflammation might be either from the infection, or the stomach contents remaining in your stomach too long, which will cause irritaion. There is a test called a gastric emptying scan that you should ask your doctor about. It is the best way to diagnose this condition. Basically, it means that your stomach doesn't process food properly, thus the fullness, nausea, heartburn, etc.
Avatar f tn A virus is not a bug. I was thinking more of the type of thing you pick up from drinking the water in Mexico. My point is that I don't think that going 3 or 4 times a day is a mental problem (could be wrong). Most people don't have to go that many times a day. That's why I asked a few more questions about his poops. At any rate - yes, go see another doctor. Probably try an Internist (sp) first.
Avatar f tn I got very scared because that same day a few hours later I started getting very sick got diarreah and felt chills on my body and the diarrhea continued for about a week, i hadn't been to Mexico for the past 7 years and I ate a lot during the prior days to this event all kinds of street food that I usually don't have here in the US So I tought I had a stomach virus for all the food I ate in a different country and I got on line and found places like this where it says that HIV it's almost zero
Avatar m tn I'm currently at my 7 the week waiting for my 3 month to get tested again but I've been really stressing about the bumps on my uvula and the back of my throat it feels like this virus is eating me from the inside out . At times it feel likes my chest/throat is on fire. So back to the guy she punched, I'm putting two and two together they had sex the night before ,unprotected and the guy gave her an infection.
1024580 tn?1331577721 Romero and others, in their article describing an excellent and diligent long term study failed to identify any risk at all in transfer of HIV from an HIV positive to an HIV negative partner through oral sex. In total 19000 episodes of oral sex were documented amongst 135 heterosexual couples over ten years and in 34% of these episodes the HIV positive male ejaculated into the HIV negative females' mouth. (Romero J et al.
499534 tn?1328707778 I seriously want to do some checking on this particular strain and where it actually is coming from right now. I don't know much about the actual virus itself and what symptoms to look for. Someone should post those here too. As for boosting your immune system - WAY FOR SURE - zinc - VitC - and wash wash wash your hands. Working in a school - you can bet those kids will be getting a talking too!
Avatar n tn I read that raw oysters are a no-no for people with hep c and liver problems. Also, hubby has verices in his stomach due to liver problems. Anyone else know about this?
Avatar f tn I was more worried about heart problems, but the stress could just as well have set off my stomach. Then I caught a virus from my son and had a fever in the middle of our current heatwave. I'm not very heat/humidity tolerant. So, it's possible that just the right combination of things to really mess up my stomach came about at the same time when it was getting bad again anyway.
Avatar n tn i get the flu or seem to have the flu quite a lot aswell[but i think that may be because i moved from a hot place like california to a much colder one,scotland. and a few months after i got back from mexico i got sick with what was called a viral infection aswell, it really upset my asthma with a violent cough and was sick for quite a few days .. what do you think????? could some of these be symptoms overlooked because i had them since i was a child?
Avatar n tn I sweat a lot all over my body (although it does seem to react to heat and excercise and is not constant) and I think it may be because of the excess heat being generated from my stomach. I also get nausea, tiredness, insomnia, dehydrated constantly and occasionally irregular heart beat. My problems started about 5 years ago after a 6 week holiday to Mexico where we were only eating one meal a day and about 4 weeks in I had a severe bout of diarrhea.
Avatar n tn My husband is 57, has CLL (Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia) and HepC from IV drug use in the 60's. His gastro does not want to try to treat the Hep C, says it's more important to deal with the CLL. A yr. ago, they remove his spleen due to a platlet count of 4. Had a minor sinus surgery (2 wks. ago) and due to no clotting factor he almost bled to death. The protein in his blood draining to his stomach made his amonnia level go to 178.
Avatar n tn Your symptoms don't sound like HIV and are not a cause for any kind of anxiety. Probably you caught sort of garden variety virus, like a common cold. Probably it has nothing at all to do with your sexual adventure. More likely you or your wife caught it the usual way, from a co-worker, friend, or someone who coughed near you. Based on the details you provide, from a risk assessment or medical perspective, no HIV testing is necessary.
144210 tn?1273092382 From 4c "... The drug you'd be getting in Mexico is called Daxon and it's a brand named drug, licensed by Romark by Ziegfried's perfectly good and a quarter of the price of the drug offered here...(Romark is of course an American company out of Florida, just wrote their info the other day so go figure) Daxon in Mexico might likely have websites representing pharmacies there....
