242516 tn?1368227505 If you get pneumonia (seen on a CXR) soon after an ILI, consider asking your doctor for both antibiotics AND Tamiflu even if it's more than 72 hours after your symptoms started. This is more helpful for those who are more sick. Some very sick pregnant women with H1N1 and pneumonia have benefited from Tamiflu even starting a week after symptoms started.

314833 tn?1263263099 By the time we got there ( maybe 10 mins) i was in tons of pain and could not look down. My heart rate was crazy high and so was my blood pressure. The nurses took me back right away and had drugs in there hand just waiting fo the Doctor to come and see me and say push the drugs… SIDE NOTE…my husband is not one to panic or get scared. He is always the calm one and handles things a lot better than I do.
Avatar n tn I say, with fears of H1N1, and my propensity to upper respiratory infections and sinusitis, that she should be courteous and cover her mouth, and not touch me. Am I overreacting?
Avatar n tn doing nothing more than flipping through a few charts from other doctors, reading reports, and looking at the blood pressure 142/84 and 88 bpm that her nurse took; her diagnosis was "stress and anxiety". Part of me wanted to fall off my chair in shock the other part wanted me to go shake her.

Avatar n tn Crestor, Blopress to reduce my blood pressure, and tranquilizers to reduce the possibility of spasms which are accused for the closing up of the stents. I still have occasional chest pains, especially after longer walks or walking up the stairs. According to my doctors by-pass surgery is out for me in the future. In my opinion the spasms in the LAD is a reaction of the vessel to get rid of the foreign material (allergy?). In the meantime I had already seven Angiorgaphies / Angioplastics.
Avatar m tn which makes the spleen continue to enlarge....and the platelet count continue to drop. Platelets in the blood causes your blood to clot if a blood vessel is cut. They have no affect on how you feel. If a person's platelets count goes down below 25,000 is there may need to intervention. Intervention is only a temporary fix. Platelets will start to drop again a day or two after treatment. The only treatment is either a platelet transfusion or drugs that can raise platelets. You need neither.

184674 tn?1360864093 Researchers are warning that over-use of the flu vaccine and anti-flu drugs like Tamiflu and Relenza can apply genetic pressure on flu viruses and then they are more likely to mutate into a more deadly strain. 8.

Avatar n tn After that, the cough got worse and I developed a sinus infection and ear pressure. After a week of that, I finally went to the Dr. when my neck got stiff and the back of my head started to ache. I was put on antibiotics that helped with the sinus infection but still a cough, aches, stiff neck, and pain at the back of my head. Also, incredibly tired. I have tried to switch to a new pillow which hasn't helped.
Avatar n tn This is also affecting my intestinal motiliity (slow movement), heart rate and blood pressure (light-headed with standing). The pain and numbness are caused by sensory neuropathy and motor neuropathy accounts for the muscle twitches and vibrations. All blood tests normal. No lyme disease, blood glucose okay (no diabetes - which commonly causes peripheral neuropathies). At a loss!
Avatar m tn During this whole time, i was really anxious and felt wierd because of the constant sinus pressure, headache, pressure in temples, and clogged ears. i felt off balance, and not myself. I was so anxious and felt so bad all the time I rarely wanted to leave my house. I suffered through all this for months and months, hoping that one day it would stop and resolve itself since my doctor told me there was nothing wrong.

It came out POSITIVE!!

299260 tn?1304219705 scope and said it looked clear of amniotic fluid but I need to be careful b/c I am so high risk due to my smaller uterus and high risk for preterm labor. DH asked if it was due to us having intercorse Saturday and told him that I had some weird pains for two days after that. Doc said it might be and from now on we need to refrain from any sex. The funny thing is we've only done it about 4 times since I got pregnant and every time there has been some issue, this, or bleeding, or cramps.

Does your cough seem to peak and subside at times? Mine seems to be fairly quiet for a couple weeks.. still coughing but not as horrible and sometimes able to calm it without coughing. Then it gets worse and is as bad as ever.

Avatar n tn First I had the condition for about 3 months and have managed to miminize it to a point where it’s much less of a problem then it was when it started. Of course it could come back. 1.

Mid afternoon at work and watching TV in the evening.
