Avatar f tn Hello My husband has been suffering from something for 3 years now. There are many symptoms and I'm hoping someone can offer some insight as to what he should be asking and what he should be tested for. My hubby is 34 with no remarkable medical history. He used anabolic steroids briefly back in college.. That's about it. The onset of symptoms began about 3.5 years ago w the birth of our first son. Every couple of months he'd come down w flu like symptoms.
Avatar n tn I just noticed it yesterday when it started to itch. I am concerned since I understand that one of the symptoms of a cancerous mole is if it itches. Also, I have what looks to be some swelling around the anus, almost like a hemorrhoid but it isn't painful, it's just there. Should I be concerned? Do I see my gynocologist for this or a dermatologist?
Avatar f tn You are on the right track for treating a sprain. The mnemonic RICE is used for treatment of injuries Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation. Ice is used to decrease swelling of the inure. Be careful with the ace bandage, you don't want to wrap too tight and cut off circulation. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn Hi Miriam, Excessive sun exposure throughout life, people with many moles, fair skin, atypical moles, and the presence of a close relative who have had melanoma are at an increased risk to develop melanoma. A popular method for remembering the signs and symptoms of melanoma is the mnemonic ABCD: Asymmetrical skin lesion, Border of the lesion is irregular, Color: melanomas usually have multiple colors; Diameter: moles greater than 5 mm are more likely to be melanomas than smaller moles.
987762 tn?1331027953 Hey Guys and Dolls, I stumbled over a book whilst trying to work out if there was even a remote posibility that all symptoms could be from something other than neurological, cant help a gal for trying lol. Anyway, I thought it might be of interest to others(limbo landers or dx) its called ' Physical medicine and rehabilitation secrets By Bryan O'Young, Mark A. Young, Steven A. Stiens ' . Its very easy to read as an example: 41. What are the clinical features of cerabellar disease?
Avatar n tn Hi, did you developed the symptoms after stopping therapy with tizanidine or during tratment with tizanadine. Your symptoms are suggestive of hypertonia which is one of the withdrawl symptoms with this medicine as this drug may produce dependence. Tizanadine is muscle relaxant, acting at the level of brain and usually given in cases of back pain, spasms etc. It is unlikely to have stroke with this drug. But its withdrawl can cause muscle spasm or hypertonia.
Avatar f tn ll notice that my right pupil is larger than the left. Should I be worried that these are like stroke symptoms or something else? Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn Excluding a new stroke, do symptoms several months after a stroke get worse than symptoms at the time of the stroke. The symptoms after the stroke should get better or stay the same but not get worse, right? New scans show resolution, but symptoms persist.
Avatar n tn And without oxygen, nerve cells in the affected area of the brain can not work properly, and die within minutes. This leads to the symptoms of stroke such as numbness or paralysis. Depending on the vessel affected, paralysis may only manifest on one side or both. However, the usual presentation is in one side of the body. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn A basic reference chart used for consumers to spot suspicious moles is found in the mnemonic, A-B-C-D. The letters stand for Asymmetry, Border, Color and Diameter.[9] Sometimes, the letter E (for Elevation) is added. Other warning signs are when a mole begins to crust over, bleed, itch, or becomes inflamed.That is when it happens spontaneously. In your case you have caused trauma which has resulted in the bleed.So it is not a warning sign. You can apply an anti-biotic ointment on it.
Avatar n tn I am a recovering addict/alcoholic and relapsed recently. My last relapse, I believe I might have suffered a TIA, and had a CT scan afterwards coming up normal for my age 28.
Avatar m tn m posting here today because i am very worried about someone that i know that had stroke like symptoms but the doctors believe it was no a stroke but a brain cramp.
Avatar f tn i'm a 41 year old female..about mid july i started having fatigue with boughts of nausea..later on tingling in my my arms and sharp pains in the back of both calves...later comes pain in my right knee along with tingling in mt head with pressure and numbness and headaches...i went to the doctor blood test are great..i'm scared to death here..please help..could it be me having a stroke?
Avatar f tn he even had me call my neuro before i left his office. the neuro said if it is a stroke...he can not do anything. my oncologist said if neuro does not do anything...go to er asap..could this be thyroid, or stroke...or c1 fracture...
Avatar m tn Certain medical conditions need to be considered like a transient ischemic attack, stroke, alzheimer’s disease and depression. Once stroke and TIA are ruled out, she may be assessed by a psychiatrist depending on the protocols in the hospital. Take care.
Avatar f tn I am not trying to scare you but a stroke is rather serious. Do some research and if you think the symptoms match up force her to see a doctor. whether she believes in them or not this could save her from having a more serious stroke, which could do anything from paralyzing one side of the body or even death. I'm sorry to scare or worry. As I said, I may be wrong, this is only a best guess from a college student, who works with children and took a first aid and cpr course.
Avatar m tn Hello, I'm wondering if my symptoms are indicative of a mild stroke. I've had this same thing happen a couple of times over the last decade, with varying severity, the most recent incident being two weeks ago. I went to sleep with a headache and woke up extremely dizzy, hoping a couple more hours of sleep would make it go away, which it did not. A headache persisted for the next two days and after it was finally gone the mild dizziness and general weakness has persisted ever since.
Avatar f tn A basic reference chart used for consumers to spot suspicious moles is found in the mnemonic, A-B-C-D. The letters stand for Asymmetry, Border, Color and Diameter.[9] Sometimes, the letter E (for Elevation) is added. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, if a mole starts changing in size, color, shape or, especially, if the border of a mole develops ragged edges or becomes larger than a pencil eraser, it would be an appropriate time to consult with a physician.
