Avatar n tn _____________________ Viral infections - the most common one that causes mouth sores, drooling, and foul breath is a serious infection called calici. This can cause ulcers on the gums, tongue, lips, roof of the mouth, throat, and lungs. This is one of the two most dangerous viral upper respiratory infections. It commonly leads to bacterial infections that require antibiotics to cure. Pneumonia is also a somewhat common complication.
Avatar n tn I have read that anything above 1 CM is abnormal. I have no pain in the nodes themselves but have developed pain in the neck which seems like a stiff neck, and pain exists with any pressure from straining or lifting, also movement related pain in neck, chest and spine in the same region. No signs of infection at all, but do have extreme fatigue, back pain, some weight loss, among other varied symptoms.
Avatar n tn in the last two weeks i have had three blood vessels just pop in my fingers. i was not doing anything out of the ordinary. what could be causing this? should there be a cause for concern?
Avatar f tn Reglan (metoclopromadine) is a very cheap medication, unfortunately, it is also metabolized in the kidneys, so a too high dose results in toxic levels in the blood. My husband and I discovered that completely bypassing the GI tract by using reglan injections worked much better in the end. Chica didn't get the extra pyramidal side effects (extreme restlessness, shaking and trembling) from the reglan injections that she got from the oral meds.
Avatar n tn I've had eczema in my ears for 15 yrs. It is very cyclical, starting w/intense uncontrollable itching, then clear fluid leaking from skin, followed by crusting over & flaking of skin in ears that is itchy in & of itself, leading to more scratching & picking at ears. The skin in my ears gets very damaged and ratty during outbreaks. I also have swelling of the ear canal after these itch/scratch episodes that are sometimes quite painful, & Motrin helps that.

Avatar n tn I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
369472 tn?1198749292 My dog, Chica, was diagnosed almost 3 months ago and was already in severe failure. We finally had to help her in the end last Friday. It was a blessing that her misery was finally over. Now, as to what you can do to keep your dog comfy for as long as possible, I want you to print out the following link and really read through the 40 pages. Your dog will need to be on low phosphorus foods, if she'll eat them.
Avatar f tn I tried to remove one with tweezers, and it was very tacky (as in sticky) and clearly goes deep under the skin. Part of it broke off but I could still see that the pore was plugged and a day or two later top of the plug was sticking out again. i can't find ANYTHING online that looks like it.

(I had mentioned this in my paperwork) “He uses the sticks to look at my tongue and says there are two on this side as well” “What are they?” “Aphthous Ulcers” “How do you tell the difference” I say “The edges look fairly prominent where as something more serious would have a hazy outline” he says. “OK” I say.

Avatar f tn He's urinating where ever he's laying at the time, but has only pooped once that I'm aware of, in days(today). I have been surrounded by cats my entire life, and have a fair amount of knowledge. Enough to be dangerous, and I prefer never to be too confident to avoid carelessness. I am terrified my babies are walking a thin line, and I do not know what to do. I need help, and cannot afford another vet visit. My accounts are clean empty, and all additional financial accounts are maxed out.
Avatar n tn It is a lifelong problem common in certain breeds but possible in all breeds of both dogs and cats. It is also called rodent ulcers ..not sure if its the same or a variation of the problem. Cortisone wouldn't be enough. My vet treated with steroid shots too...but a stronger one. (forget which one). It's about $25 per shot and it reoccurs every few months. One vet misdiagnosed and wanted to do biopsies after biopsies, another vet talked about cancer.....

203342 tn?1328740807 She said I couldn't afford to catch this with my own problems with my intestines (my Crohn's Disease I was recently diagnosed with). I have ulcers, inflamation and gastritis. I've been biting my tongue and haven't spouted off but have come close. That's why I'm here. I love her like a sister but it always frustrates me that I feel I've always been the one giving in this relationship and haven't received the same amount of support from her.

748543 tn?1463449675 TMJ' as it is wrongly called by many) is easy to treat and self-manage or that it may all be in the patient's mind. The sources in the article stated that, "TMJ problems were originally thought to be caused by dental Malocclusion but that this was an infrequent cause of the problem". The American Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), an organization of some 40,000 of the nation's leading dentist, recognizes the relationship between maloclussion and headaches.

Avatar m tn The Flip-Turn is the original, and still the best Sinus Flush. WARNING! DISCLAIMER! The technique in this manual involves bending over in a hot shower. Obviously, if you bend over in a shower, there is a slight possibility that you can get dizzy and fall down. You could possibly hit your head, get knocked out, or break something.
Avatar m tn It began in 1976 and re occurs every 5 to 6 years. I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out.
Avatar n tn This might be due to a re infection since here the cats are still in the house since no other person in the house gets affected by this, although the owner of the cats suffers from a continued throat infection which can't be cured with coinventional antibiotics like they use to do. I AM STILL LOOKING FOR ASSISTANCE ON THIS, I REALLY HOPE THIS CAN HELP ANYONE GOING THROUGH THIS SAME ****, I WILL BE BACK AS SOON AS I FIND WHAT IT IS AND HOW TO RESOLVE THIS PROBLEM.
188500 tn?1207368551 it wasn't the vanity that took me down though it was the sx of tx in general. awful stuff. homebound now, cats my closest friends,they like having me lay around with them most of the day. i would really rather be working though.
519226 tn?1378994921 I finally realized it's because she can't stand looking at me since I favor my father and grandmother in looks. It's just simply, that I exist. Well I am finally stating in this entry what I felt for a long time. I DESPISE HER!!!!! She disgusts me. How dare she talk about me and lie. How dare she treat me nasty and disrespectfully, even in front of my kids. I cannot stand her. I am an adult and deserve respect.
Avatar f tn Your dog will start to vomit more often, and as the acid starts to build up, ulcers will form in the gastrointestinal tract and in his mouth. Of Course, they won't eat, because they are feeling sick, other symptoms may also appear...depression, incoordination, seizures,sleeping more often,confusion, rapid weight lose, shivering or trembling. I have read that this disease is not painful....That is what I have read many times...
Avatar dr m tn This is because of human's unique upper airway anatomy. Because our voice boxes are located lower down in the throat under the tongue, this not only allowed for complex speech and language acquisition, but also predisposed our tongues to fall back more easily when on our backs (due to gravity). However, with a major change in our diets from organic whole foods to processed refined foods in the past 100 years, our jaws are getting smaller, with more dental crowding.
4865450 tn?1361298133 it took almost a month for me to get over with the fact that i might have something in mouth too. I lift my tongue up and saw very minor skin growth under the tongue. then on the mouth floor i saw saliva gland area has a bump does not hurt at all, is not big but it scares me to death. I have been in very stressful situation since then, I have been to dr net. He said i dont have to worry about anything and this is just because u have acid reflex problem.
Avatar n tn Diagnosed with Eagles in Sept 2008, age 40. Mother had tongue cancer in same spot on left 5 years ago, so had it checked out and came back with Eagles. CT scan shows ossification of stylohyoid ligament and 3 lumps in neck. ENT dr says "can't feel anything" in neck. Did scope up nose (UGH!) and says have reflux disease and gave Nexium. Did nothing to help. Cost a fortune! Feels like have something stuck in throat, always clearing throat, hurts to chew food, hurts to turn neck.
Avatar n tn If you have a dry mouth and dry eyes, of suffer from other unusual symptoms such as arthritis, painful blue hands in the cold, eye problems, ulcers, weight loss, fevers, etc, getting yourself checked out for connective tissue disease by a rheumaologist may be a good idea. = Dear "NT" (MD) Is the evoked potentials test (VEP etc.) the same as EMG? If not (as I believe), I havent had an EMG test... yet. Should I ask for it? I have heard that they use large (!
