Common Questions and Answers about Throat ulcers mayo clinic


Avatar n tn My daughter had her 1st case of genital ulcers at 12 during a case of stomach flu/sore throat--basically very painful genital canker sores. Doctor of course prescribes herpes medicines--didn't work--but it spontaneously cleared in a week. Four years later she had the flu and laryngitis and it happened again. This time for 2 years she had a relapse 3 times a year-- when she was stressed and developed high fevers.
Avatar f tn Vomiting blood is NOT NORMAL!! That is NOT a normal symptom of the swine flu or any other yearly flu. Definition By Mayo Clinic staff Vomiting blood (hematemesis) can indicate a life-threatening condition, so promptly identifying the cause is essential. *****While vomiting blood may be caused by swallowed blood, as from a nosebleed or forceful coughing, truly vomiting blood usually represents something more serious and requires immediate medical attention.
Avatar f tn Here is a link that will give you more info. The Mayo Clinic is one of the best in the country, with the most up to date research and information. Hope I have been a help to you. http://www.mayoclinic.
Avatar m tn Symptoms Vomiting blood SECTIONS Definition By Mayo Clinic Staff Vomiting blood (hematemesis) refers to significant amounts of blood in your vomit. Small streaks or flecks of blood in material you spit up may come from the teeth, mouth or throat and isn't usually considered vomiting blood. Blood in vomit may be bright red, or it may appear black or dark brown like coffee grounds.
Avatar f tn Esophageal varices are abnormal, enlarged veins in the lower part of the esophagus — the tube that connects the throat and stomach. Esophageal varices occur most often in people with serious liver diseases. Esophageal varices develop when normal blood flow to your liver is slowed. The blood then backs up into nearby smaller blood vessels, such as those in your esophagus, causing the vessels to swell. Sometimes, esophageal varices can rupture, causing life-threatening bleeding.
Avatar n tn I have just joined this site. I have had similar experience perhaps to Wendy's mum. I am 39 year old male and (was) very healthy. 2 years ago my voice started to sieze up - went quieter as if no breath support, and my chest went tight. I was in bed for a couple of days, but ever since I have a tightness in chest, especially down left side and sometimes down the centre, but pains and tightness elswehere too.
1137639 tn?1287859401 I was given all the Mayo Clinic tests and what they found was Sjogrens. I tried taking the plaquenil for a few days and didn't like the side effects so quit taking it. I was under the impression that it was only to treat the symptoms of dry eye and dry mouth, which I had learned to live with and it seemed to me that dealing with the symptoms was better than taking another medication and dealing with the side effects.
Avatar f tn It also may occur in people who have Raynaud’s disease, and sometimes in people who do not have either of these conditions. Symptoms of CREST By Mayo Clinic staff While some varieties of scleroderma occur rapidly, signs and symptoms of limited scleroderma usually develop gradually. They include: Tight, hardened skin. In limited scleroderma, skin changes typically affect only the lower arms and legs, including fingers and toes, and sometimes the face and throat.
Avatar f tn This is based on my symtoms from throat to stomach valve. The only good part is the doctor I'll see will do the esophagus testing when she does a colonoscopy, which I'm due for anyway. Sort of one-stop shopping. That will be sometime in April, details to follow. So then to the tinnitus problem. That could be from anything, zillions of people have it, etc., etc. So who knows? Moving on to the vertigo. I'm now scheduled for a VNG test on April 6.
Avatar n tn Anyone out there who can point me into right direction would be appreciated. My next stop is to go to either Cleveland Clinic or Mayo Clinic.
Avatar f tn Google these -Red Yeast Rice Mayo clinic -Hot peppers cancer -Coffee cancer -Coffee colon cancer -Percent heart attacks normal cholesterol levels Note: The FDA is run by Doctors and government. Doctors don't make money if they don't have patients so when the supplement companies found out that the Statin drugs were gotten from a molecule in red yeast rice-Specifically Lovastatin came directly from the yeast without genetic engineering.......Just imagine that?!
Avatar m tn Thanks for the replies they already did an ultrasound of the pancreas. They said it looked normal. Actually, they said they usually can never get as good of look at a pancreas than they did on mine. I rarely get an "attack," although some days are a lot worse than others (that is when I do feel a small sting in my back). I'm not ruling pancreatitis out but shouldn't it start to go away on it's own, or at least get better?
Avatar n tn She has seen a pediatric dermatologist and her colleages at Rochester Mayo and the U of Minn.A Rhuematologist was also seen. After extensive lab. and photo testing and also a biopsy to rule out phototoxic reaction, photo allergic reaction, polymorphous light eruption, underlying connective tissue disease and disorder of porphryin metabolism,the final impression was Atypical facial eruptions.She has eliminated all scented soaps, detergents,lotions,perfumes, etc.
138239 tn?1239928524 Our 18 year old daughter complained about a lump in her throat difficulty talking & swallowing back in January, we then took her to the doctor who did blood work & it came back as Thyroid Peroxidase @ 36H norm: 34, Antithyroglobulin Ab 773H norm:40 T4 & TSH where normal.
Avatar f tn I read the article sent to me by this site about IM and its association to acid and/or bile reflux. I also researched the mayo clinic site among others. All the info leads me to believe that I may have low acidity instead of high acidity in my stomach and that my esophagitis may be due to bile/acid reflux instead of acid relux alone. In short, I have second thoughts about taking the PPI that accompanies the two antibiotics to erradicate the H.P.
Avatar n tn Results of thyroid NORMAL! I was hoping that was it -- even though I hate bad news, I'd take it over not knowing why I awakened one day to not only neck popping like mad, but my throat! I believe the ENT that said it was "throat crepitus" or globulus hystericus. It turns out is is most likely crepitus At least globulus hystericus is curable. My clicky throat is possibly related to what was later a diagnosis of Lyme.
Avatar n tn On June 16 my blood was somehow sent to two different labs. Mayo clinic igg hsv 1 pos igg hsv2 neg igm neg Mayo only has reactive or nonreactive for tests and if reactive then they put a number on them so my igm was neg Iowa city also did my blood igg hsv 1 2.89 igg hsv 2 0.2 igm 1/2 6.887 I guess i just would like your impression on this and how the igm tests are so different and my number for hsv 1 thank you and i will not bother you again..
586636 tn?1223131279 We went to many doctors because it wouldn't let up and it was very painful to him. Finally we went to the Mayo Clinic in MN and they said he had some nerve damage and small ulcers in his stomach. They recommended fiber - he has been eating 25-30 grams of fiber a day (high fiber cereal, fiber bars and citrocel - either liquid or tablets) to make up the 25-30 grams per day and it has stopped the pain and the rapid heartbeat.
Avatar m tn The Flip-Turn Sinus Flush (by friggy) removes infected mucus from every part of your sinuses, which Mayo Clinic research shows is the cure for sinusitis, rather than treating sinus tissue with antibiotics. Regular saline irrigation does not work in the upper sinuses, because of gravity, but the Sinus Flush defeats gravity. It is effective with bacterial and viral infections, and some but not all fungal infections. The Flip-Turn is the original, and still the best Sinus Flush. WARNING!
Avatar n tn i think it's be a good idea to visit your MD for a full physical/bloodwork/possible referral to a neurologist. you may want to visit the cleveland or mayo clinic to expediate the process. without testing, it could be a myriad of things.
203342 tn?1328740807 I do believe it is now inevitable, and I can live with that. I don't have stomach ulcers, but ulcers and crypt abscesses in both intestines, which is quite different. When your gastro talked to you about possible acid reflux, did he mention Barrett's Esophagus? This is a pre-cancerous condition where acid has eaten away some of the lining of the stomach - not the intestines.I believe it starts with GERD syndrome.
Avatar n tn I had to figure it out as no doctors ever even mentioned it to me, and that includes the Mayo Clinic in Arizona. I'm certainly not telling you that you have Lyme Disease, but I am saying that it should be considered, especially in your case with the sudden onset of joint pain and the obvious mysterious "bites". (Although less than 50% of people with Lyme ever remember a bite, a tick, or a rash.
Avatar n tn Ive tried them all, the shot (just one cuz I scared my doctor with my reaction), the under the tongue pill that immediately put ulcers all over my mouth as well as shut my throat up, the nose spray that taking half a dose once a week caused heart attack like symptoms. Im getting pretty desperate with the b12 issue and my wonderful doctor (and he seriously is) doesnt know how to help me and its frustrating him to no end. Can b12 be made without Cobalt if that is what the allergy is to?
Avatar n tn VCD/Vocal Cord Dysfunction/Laryngospasm attacks, cough, voice problems, asthma, globus (feeling of lump in throat), constant need to clear throat, much extra throat mucus, worsening of sinus condition, sore throat, laryngitis, voice problems, pre-cancerous conditions of throat &/or esophagus, etc. SOME GER/LPR CONTROL THINGS WE DO, that we learned from the excellent book: STOMACH AILMENTS AND DIGESTIVE DISTURBANCES, by Michael T. Murray, N.D.
1088046 tn?1272288996 P.S. the doctors here say that since I dont have the numbness and tingling in extremeties then Chiari is not affecting me...........
Avatar m tn The fact you had a fever to start with sounds like you did have an infection that maybe turned into reactive arthritis or something like that. Also Chlamydia can cause reactive arthritis according to the Mayo clinic as well as these other bacteria and it stated that these can be transmitted sexually and/or in food. The Chlamydia you said you weren't tested for yet. I would get that done as soon as possible and the FTA.
Avatar n tn You may be wondering why I am bothering to ask questions in a neurology forum but I have exhausted the cardiology testing including a trip to the Mayo clinic where some peculiar results were found. First of all I am the only person that apparently has the connection between swallowing and a heart arrhythmia. My heart will beat normally until I swallow. Everytime I swallow there seems to be a short pause followed by a burst of atrial tachycardia.
Avatar n tn I brush it used nystatin swish and swallow but the back of my throat has a film over it. whitish film with no ulcers. the ears, nose throat doc asks what the film on my tongue was from. Any ideas. If the valtrex didn't work too, it can't be herpes, right, herpes does not last 8 weeks and sores here and there with treatment?
Avatar n tn Also, purchase some probiotics or eat plain yogurt. Mayo clinic has a write up online regarding perforation and is very serious and don't let anyone make you feel bad for being concerned. Good luck to you all.
Avatar f tn I'd respond amazingly to steroids but get sicker and sicker when we tapered. Diagnosis was just made recently at Cleveland Clinic. My advice Christie, is to visit Mayo or google and contact Dr John Stone at Massachusetts General via phone or email, tell him about your symptoms and diagnosis. He may want to look at any biopsises or see you in person. He's one of a handful of doctors observing and publishing on IgG4-Related Sclerosing Disease.
