Avatar f tn Significantly elevated PCT levels offer good specificity and sensitivity for systemic infection in patients with systemic autoimmune diseases, regardless of the use of corticosteroids or immunosuppressive agents.
Avatar f tn I have an almost 6 year old daughter who over the last few years has had numerous high fevers with a high white blood cell count with no other symptoms of signs of infection. March 2009 she had a fever that went from 103.2 to 108 in less than 15 minutes. She was hospitalized for 5 days and they never found anything. She has been checked for UTI. Everything is always negative. Any ideas of what could cause this would be helpful.
Avatar f tn I have SLE I Recently had a Fever of 101. to 103.9 over the weekend, I went to the Dr. on Monday, but then the fever was gone, without any swabs, or blood test he told me it was the flu... I know it wasn't the flu, I had no sniffles, cough or congestion, just fever... Why do we get fevers? I need to ask more questions to my Doctors, but unless you have quality Healthcare, They want to run out of the office...Sorry just a little frustrated...
Avatar m tn This could be urinary tract infection, viral fever, upper or lower respiratory tract infection, or even malaria. Till you see your doctor you could take some antipyretic medications for the fever, try some water sponging and drink plenty of fluids and eat properly. Let us know about how you are doing and if you have any other doubts. Post us about hwat your doctor advises. Regards.
Avatar n tn the dammage to the heart tissue can be done by the patogen and/or the immune system, trying to combat the patogen. when the innitial bacterial/fungi/virus infection is not treated and become systemic it can enter the heart, causing potencial damage to the heart tissue if not treated quickly and properly.
630177 tn?1231545490 I have been experiencing extreme vaginal discomfort now for over three months with no discharge. I've used monistat a couple times with no result. I went to the doctor multiple times and this last time I told her to do a COMPLETE std scan on me. She tested for any and all STD's and all came back negative (thank God). Also, at that time I did have discharge so she tested it and said it looked like a yeast infection.
Avatar m tn What can be wrong with my husband who has a problem with balance while walking and sometimes with sitting. It is like someone is pulling him backwards while sitting and when he is walking sometimes falls forward. He has recently been in the hospital and his diagnosis was infection from his kidneys. They gave him Ciproflaxin for the infection. He still has trouble walking, it's like his legs are really heavy and still has the wobbles.
Avatar m tn I woke up last night in the middle of the night with extreme pain in my hip so bad I could not get comfortable. When I woke up this morning my shoulder was painful like a dull pain but still sore. As the day has gone on the pain has spress to my upper and inner thighs and I also think I have a low grade fever however it could be nerves. My big worry is that I may have systemic Gonnoreha. I don't recall having any of the common gonnoreha symptoms listed on the NHS website.
Avatar f tn A systemic infection is inside your body so no- I do not have a skin infection. I had a low grade fever for 15 years. I would be the rare case of a working immune system so NONE of the symptoms show as they do normally- In our area no Infectious Disease Doctor will not see you without documentation first of what you have. Evidence I currently have is thrush that has been in my mouth for 3 years and toe nail fungus since 1998. Main symptoms present like many other things...
Avatar n tn Also other infectious conditions like a kidney infection, a systemic viral infection, a sinus infection may be considered.
Avatar f tn The infection can be in the skin and subcutaneous tissues caused by boils or abscess formation. Also you are having fever and the infection may require systemic antibiotics as well as local treatment. Local glands often get enlarged in presence of infection. Consult your Doctor. The answer is based on information provided. Exact advice is not possible without a proper examination and investigations. You are requested to consult your Doctor. Take care and keep us posted.

Avatar f tn Yes I have had a tetanus shot. I have a slight fever, and I've secured a ride to the clinic for tomorrow. I'm worried because my cuts have never been so painful, nor have they ever looked so infected all at the same time. And I've noticed a rash by 2 of them. So as soon as I'm back from the clinic I'll post what the doc says!
Avatar f tn Your symptoms sound a lot like a sinus infection that became systemic, resulting in additional signs/symptoms. The course of Abx that you were on was likely not long enough or perhaps not even the correct Abx for your infection. Often these types of infections slowly become systemic if not treated properly. I can tell you that quite of few veterans had this initial symptom but since they were inadequately treated, the infection slowly spread.
Avatar n tn I'm 34 years old and I've never had a fever. When I was a child I had a perforated eardrum because the doctors couldn't diagnose an ear infection since I didn't have a fever. Since then I always had to say to the doctors when I come in sick for a visit: "I never have a fever" they always look at me like I'm nuts and don't know what I'm talking about.
Avatar f tn skin, vaginal or systemic? Only systemic or fungal infection in blood can lower your blood pressure. Skin and vaginal yeast infection is cured by local application of antifungal creams (separate for skin and vagina) and systemic infection is cured by oral tablets. You may need to take the tablets for skin and vaginal infection too. Dehydration, certain medications, heart problems, untreated diabetes, and nervous system disorders can all cause hypotension or low blood pressure.
Avatar f tn I am 39 year old female and I was diagnosed with iliopsoas bursitis in left hip after 4 months of testing for other dieseases. I finally asked for a MRI and it picked it up. They told me they had to stimulate my nerves in the MRI and it felt like I was being cooked from the inside out. A week later I had shingles. I’ve been in that misery for over two months now with some lasting PHN, malaise and low grade fever.
Avatar m tn Would having an infection for so long make me feel crummy, because for like the whole summer I felt very lazy and sore and had a sore throat, and pretty much just not my active self? Would this be associated with a bladder/kidney infection. Thanks a million.
