Avatar f tn After a renal ultrasound I was told they found a nodule on my right kidney. My Dr ordered a CAT Scan. They said they found a nodule on the right kidney & a fatty liver. My Dr said not to worry & have another ultrasound in 3 months to see if the nodule is getting bigger & asked me if I wanted a MRI to check on the fatty liver. Shouldn't he know whether that is needed? What are the risks of a fatty there a treatment or something that should be done?
Avatar f tn a 2 cm complex cyst that ruptured on my left ovary. In August of 2010 during an FNA biopsy on a 1.5 cm complex nodule on Isthmus of thyroid, the Endo ruptured it (shrinking it to 5 mm) causing a severe hematoma, where I ended up in ICU and the biopsy was indeterminate. My symptoms are lower back and pelvic pain. Feeling of cramps all the time, not just menstrual time. Occasional headaches. Fatigue. Weight loss without trying. Occasional upper left shoulder back pain (like a knife is stuck).
Avatar n tn they found a mass on my liver , when i had cat scan for kidney stones, i am just always so tired, nauseas, and pain, could this all be symptoms from that?
Avatar n tn We can expect dizziness only in cases of associated high fever or sepsis, shock, secondary to pyelonephritis. The usual symptoms of kidney infection are flank pain, abdominal or pelvic pain, nausea, vomiting, fever (≥ 37.8ºC) etc. and UTI typically presents with burning urination, Urinary frequency and urgency, there may be pain in and around pubic region and with or without fever. I hope this helped you. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn For example, sometimes I know I have to urinate because I'll get a pain in my penis. I've had all sorts of symptoms - pains where my liver and spleen would be, kidney pain, leg pain, weird pains at the back of my head, dry skin, some rash (which is less frequent), foot pain, etc... I have had every prodromal symptom of herpes and most ARS symptoms. Curiously though, I have never had a sore throat, lymph nodes were never swollen. Also...a few weeks ago, I drank two beers.
231903 tn?1281486184 Hence there is a high chance of these. There could be an accompanying UTI. A kidney abscess too will cause similar symptoms but will present with a higher fever. The other possibility is that the ovarian cyst has got twisted. The third possibility of endometriosis can be considered if you have pain only around your periods. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Do discuss this with your doctor (urologist) and get yourself examined. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn I can't live the way I am, continual breakout and other symptoms and too much Benadryl (most days 200-350mg per day). This level of bad hives+symptoms and heavy Benadryl has been going on since mid November 2007. It has gone on so long due to waiting to hear from health insurer if I'm insured (took weeks to get back to me; I'm not insured) and due to weather (storms). My locale is Southern California, mountainous area at 4500 feet.
Avatar m tn not easy The review of systems should concentrate on the evidence of bladder, kidney, lung, or skin infection and irritative or obstructive bladder symptoms. Classic MS symptoms • Sensory loss (ie, paresthesias) usually is an early complaint. • Motor (eg, muscle cramping secondary to spasticity) spinal cord symptoms • autonomic (eg, bladder, bowel, sexual dysfunction) spinal cord symptoms • Cerebellar symptoms (eg, Charcot triad of dysarthria, ataxia, tremor) may occur.
Avatar f tn You have the classic symptoms of hypothyroidism. An autoimmune cause accounts for approximately 90% of adult hypothyroidism, mostly due to Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (autoimmune hypothyroidism). Thyroid antibodies can cause symptoms even when TSH is normal. Some hypothyroid patients may experience new or worsened food sensitivities or allergies such as hay fever or problems with caffeine or alcohol. Low thyroid function can be a major cause of eczema.
Avatar n tn Pain and discomfort on the lower left side of abdomen just below and to the left of navel can be due to several causes such as Crohn’s disease, colitis, diverticulitis, infection in kidney, kidney stones, adhesions, polycystic ovary in females, IBS, constipation, and an abscess in rectus abdominis muscle or psoas muscle. Since you do not have a lump or a tender hot spot, in all probability it is not a muscle.

Avatar n tn I have had to fight back against people thinking this was all in my mind. I have had to find a medical cause for my symptoms on my own and a lot of time was wasted because it came on over a long period of time. Only one of the hundreds of doctors I've seen had ever even heard of Behcet's Syndrome, he was a GI doctor. They do not look for it. One doctor, my Rheumatologist, told me he didn't even believe it existed. This disease is very real.
Avatar f tn Hello, The various possibilities which present with such pain in the lower left abdomen are diverticulitis(due to the out pouching of the wall of the bowel like out growing fingers outside the walls of the bowel, mainly affecting the sigmoid colon), Crohn’s disease(inflammatory bowel disease if effects the descending or sigmoid colon) , bowel obstruction, ovarian cysts and pelvic inflammatory disease,irritable bowel syndrome , kidney obstruction or pyelonephritis, psoas abscess and volvolus (t
886824 tn?1253740254 This attack damages the myelin, which in turn slows down or blocks messages between your brain and the body causing the symptoms of MS. The causes of MS are largely unknown. MS is most likely a multifactorial condition, which means that it involves a combination of genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors. It is currently well established that MS also runs in some families.
Avatar n tn But I got on the internet and was looking up stuff and seen I had symptoms of ovarian cancer. But I am worrying myself sick. I can't get to the OB/GYN until November. They are not concerned. But I have pain during intercourse, My stomach is swelled. I look like I am 6 months pregnant. I have not ever been this big other than when I am pregnant. I have pressure in my abdomen that comes and goes and the lower back pain that comes and goes. I am very tired and grouchy.
Avatar m tn However flank pain can be caused from kidney stones, kidney infections, a kidney abscess or disease, arthritis of the spine, disc problems and as said earlier, muscle spasms. There are also other causes of flank pain...often other conditions can produce referred pain to the flank. Meaning the pain is actually being produced in one location but felt in another. I would return to your PCP and investigate possible kidney issues....
Avatar n tn Today I was looking at some medicals books and found inf. on boils so I have put tissue of warm water on it see wht will come out of it. Thn now looking online for any help wht so ever cause if its somthing simple i rather not go too the doctor. I'm trying too contol myslf from not touching it. But if it doesnt go away and still there i would go too a doctor its almost time for my pap test which i hate it everytime. I'm 32 and since i'm not sexual active i can rule out std's.
Avatar f tn I had never been on any kind of birth control but yeah highly stressed and i think that adds on to the hormones going haywire. @Jo- so sorry to hear about your ongoing back pain ... How do you manage the pain otherwise.... Are you still on steroids??? @ruostentatious & barbardos- I think sometime earlier someone mentioning abt the IUD stuff .... But dont know how it is related coz i have never been on any birth control...
Avatar f tn I forgot to mention that this has happened once before, on the other side but lower, and it was the result of a bad cough, but I was mostly worried about the gap that makes it look like I'm missing a rib, it wasn't like that the last time. And also it wasn't tender to the touch as it is now. I guess I'll wait it out for another day or two to see if it goes away this time before I go to the doctor. I had planned to go for it last time also but I woke up one day and the pain was gone completely.
Avatar f tn Anyone out there take ultram/tramadol? This drug has turned me into a tramadol prisoner. I am having a hard time stopping and I know I need to . I have taken this for a long time. First, I was prescribed this med and then I found other ways to get it. Knowbody knows I take it as much as I do. Anyone....have some advice?
Avatar n tn There is nothing worse than a pain you can't seem to treat or get an answer about. I can totally sympathize. There are so many causes of pain on the upper left side of a persons abdomen.
Avatar n tn I just went to the doc last week.He said that my indent is NOT normal.He smiled and said,"Let's just say it's interesting".I'm going for a cat scan next week on Fri.He suggested that I may have had a cuncussion that I did not get tended to.Anyways,they are going to get a good pic of my brain and skull on Fri.I will also be going to see a neurologist once my doctor get's a look at the results from the cat scan.I hope it's just not waisting skull you know??
Avatar n tn tomorrow but have little faith in docs as have epilepsy and was mis diagnosed for 9 years before they acted on symptoms!! There is no history of cancer in my family, which i guess is comforting. I feel alot of pressure on it when i sit down as my breasts rest quite heavy on it and my wires on my bra seem to dig in. it doesnt move and is rock hard and seems to go from below the breast to under my nipple but still on the ribs!
1738210 tn?1310718850 I have also looked up celiac disease, and a lot of the symtoms match, but gluten doesn't upset me. The most recent development in my symptoms it that the pain can sometimes become almost rainbow-like in it's placing. The worst pain stays upper left under the left ribs, but then it seems to stem out in an arch over the belly button and to the right... but the farther to the right it is, the duller it feels. My pelvic area has also been giving me some more problems than normal with this cycle.
Avatar n tn Dead on, describes what I have been and am currently experiencing. I dont know what this is yet, everytime i do a web search to try to identify the cause (and to make sure im not dying, even though every time it clears in the mid morning hours as if nothing was ever wrong) and finding this page is the first time finding something that matches my symptoms...
Avatar f tn Not sure whats going on bu I had a crop of boils approx two weeks ago in groin area and back of thighs. My Gp gave me antibiotics which I finished a week ago. The bolis had subsided dramatically and wernt red or causing trouble. Anyway over the last few days I have come out in another crop in a differnt area , my glands are very swollen , red and painful, Ive got quite bad stabbing pain in my left lower back radiating to the abdomen on the left side and blood in my urine.
148354 tn?1211237506 I noticed that one of your symptoms was kidney stones. Most of your symptoms sound like they are thyroid related. I am experiencing the same symptoms and am waiting for results. I came across the term: parathyroidism. Have you had your calcium levels checked? The parathyroid gland releases a hormone (PTH) that pulls calcium from your bones and puts it into your blood. When this hormone is not in balance, it affects your body's acidity.
131114 tn?1380086790 There is a third photo below THAT one that also shows the scabs on her ears. More toward the middle of my album is one final pic of her ear being eaten away and bleeding, then the post op pic. Jade is a rescue also. She had owners, but she was very ill and neglected because they didn't care, so after watching her die slowly for several months, we took over. She looks 100% better today with a decent diet, Lysine, and more love than she knows what to do with.
