After tumor removed from spinal cord, developed tingling in my left foot and leg?

2 months ago I had a tumor on my spinal cord and had it removed. At that time I had swelling from t2-t5 and the tumor had compressed my spinal cord and caused spinal stenois. My surgery went as planned, but 2 months later I developed tingling in my left foot and leg, why is this happening?



Do I need a Saline Ultrasound with a 14 mm polyp?

Do I have to do Saline Ultrasound if my transvaginal results (this ultrasound was done on cycle day 13) said “possible 14 mm polyp, repeat cycle day 5-10. If persistent do sonohysterogram”. I just did my repeat regular transvaginal ultrasound at cycle day 8. I hope it comes back fine. I do not want to do Saline ultrasound at all.

If these second results come back fine. Am I okay not to do the Saline ultrasound?



I have fever and severe headache, nausea and feeling cold, do I have Typhoid fever?

I am 20 years old and was diagnosed with Typhoid when I was 14 years old. I underwent treatment but a relapse of Typhoid occurred, as per the doctor when he examined the next report. Thereafter, I was vaccinated for 3 years against typhoid.
Now I had been suffering from fever since a week and other symptoms and was asked to get my blood tested. The doctor has told me that it is typhoid yet again. I I am 20 years old and was diagnosed with Typhoid when I was 14 years old. I underwent treatment but a relapse of Typhoid occurred, as per the doctor when he examined the next report. Thereafter, I was vaccinated for 3 years against typhoid.
Now I had been suffering from fever since a week and other symptoms and was asked to get my blood tested. I had fever and severe headache, nausea, extreme cold and feeling cold. The doctor checked the report and has told me that it is typhoid yet again. I have attached a report of my test. I want to know if I am on the right track or not. On the internet I found some relevant information (on web-Salmonella typhi H and O titres greater than or equal to 1:160 occurred in respectively 82% and 58% of typhoid fever patients; only 4% of healthy individuals and 8% of non-typhoid patients had Widal titres greater than or equal to 1:80. In typhoid fever, the H titre is elevated earlier and more frequently than the O titre. Antibody rise is maximal during the second week of illness. Antibiotic treatment did not affect the rise of antibody titre in typhoid fever. A single Widal test in an unvaccinated Ethiopian patient showing H and/or O titres greater than or equal to 1:160 and typhoid-like symptoms is strongly strongly suggestive of typhoid fever.) but I couldn’t understand if my doctor is giving me treatment according to that information.



Is it possible for someone infected with HIV to start producing antibodies and consequently symptoms at a late stage?

Had protected se** with an extremely high risk woman. As far as I remember it was quick and the protection didn’t break. I had several tests done: rna pcr at 11 days, combo elisa’s at 26, 47, and 60 days as well as a standard antibody at 60 days which was offered for free with the last combo elisa. I was ready to move on until I started feeling symptoms at the 9 week mark. For the past two weeks I’ve had higher than normal body temperature but nothing serious; like maximum 37.8 from the mouth. What’s odd is that the the increase in body temperature is not all day for the past two weeks- it seems to come and go at intervals during the day. Also, I have lost 5 KG in the last few weeks. ( It could be the past two months). I also have an abnormal toe nail fungus on both toes and a lymphnode in my neck that doesn’t hurt but feels strange. How accurate are my results and is my stress and anxiety overblown to the point where it’s causing me all these symptoms? Do I need to retest at 3 months? I was told combo tests are conclusive at 6 weeks post exposure. I’m also extremely confused with the whole window period thing. Is it possible for someone infected with hi*** to start producing antibodies and consequently symptoms at such a late stage? Or Do government agencies just state three months to be careful for medical legal reasons? I’m extremely worried and do not know what the next step should be.

I have severe pain and muscle spasms, is it fibromyalgia?

I have severe pain and muscle spasms with a drop in barometer pressure. Then when pressure returns to close to normal my body is sore and still spasms. I have been told I have fibromyalgia. I do have pain on a every day basis and migraines. I just can’t emphasize enough on how much pain I am in when pressure drops or with wind. Dr’s look at me like “oh really “. I’m seriously getting so distraught. I can barely function. I’m a RN and love my job but I’m coming to the conclusion it’s really effecting my job. All I can do is work ( and that’s every day struggle, sometimes I cry on the way home because I’m so tired and in pain). I take all the meds related to Fibromyalgia and still no relief. Blood work shows no inflammatory problems. Dr ‘s say must be Fibromyalgia. I am just asking if anyone else has any ideas of what could be going on. Thank you. Desperate

I am 21, do I need a Pap smear test?

Lately I have been having weird discharge and I’m worried. At first my discharge changed to being heavy and watery with a weird odor then just dry and uncomfortable meaning I stopped having a discharge. Now it heavy once again with the same odor. I did go to a doctor yesterday and was offered a Pap smear exam but because of my fears and backed out. Initially I believed I had a yeast infection so that’s what I told the doctor and because I didn’t want to do the Pap smear he just decided to give me a one dose medication for a yeast infection. However today I’m not so sure I made the right decision. I have noticed a change in my discharge since taking the pill, however when I went to the bathroom and wiped a noticed a brown streak in my discharge. I immediately start to panic and reading up on YouTube only increased my fears. I am honestly worried sick.. to the point of breaking down. I need some advice before i approach my sister. P.S My period started 14 days ago (last for 7 days). Also, noticed that I barely ever get aroused and when I do I don’t get “wet”. 21 year old virgin. I would have mentioned a lot of these things to my doctor but he was so fast paced, somewhat in a hurry that I forgot. Help me.

My daughter, 17, is suffering from; leg muscle cramps?

We are frustrated, in and out of doctors offices for 3 months now. My daughter, 17, is suffering from; leg muscle cramps (12 months plus, relieved with iron, doctor told us to take her off the iron because of nausea, now the cramps are back, immediately after stopping iron), daily outbreaks of hives, diarrhea, nausea with vomiting, low grade fever, and, a new symptom, heartburn. She must have given over a quart of blood for tests so far. All the Doctors tell us is that the blood work was fine, and leave it at that. Her white cell count has been high, a couple of times. She has been treated with antibiotics, iron supplements and calcium supplements. In fact, when the vomiting and diarrhea started, we were told, “It probably isn’t even related.” even though these were symptoms they seem to really be concerned about at first, almost relieved when we told them no. The nausea has always been there, with occasional vomiting, the frequent vomiting is a new development.

I have had a cough for the last 5 months now, doctors don’t know why?

I have had a cough for the last 5 months now. Had 10+ visits to yhe Gp being sent away with different answers from all of them.

All wrong answers I feel as clearly something is wrong

I get breathless really easily, which results in coughing, then vomiting from coughing there is often blood that comes up when I cough but no one is listening to me

One doctor did finally listen and got me an X-ray, however it didn’t show anything well nothing significant however i am still bad, it’s not just when I move around either although that makes it work I could just be sat there breath the wrong way, or yawn and it triggers a coughing fit

I have been referred somewhere but not sure what this is for or if it’s going to help I’ve really had enough and looking for some advice?

I have been taking Lo Loestrin Fe for about 5 months now, is my body rejecting it?

Hi. I am 25 years old and have been taking Lo Loestrin Fe for about 5 months now. Before that I had a total of 3 Nexplanons over the course of 8 years and got it removed due to bad side effects. My OB told me my body was probably just rejecting it due to the fact I had so many and wanted to put me on the pill for awhile. I have had semi-normal periods for the past 3 months or so. I took an entire pack of pills and then had an event coming up and wanted to skip my period so started my next pack and took 8 pills. I stopped the pack thinking it was time to have a period. I had unprotected sex 4 times right around the time I was supposed to be ovulating. I take my pill every day around the same time for the most part. I have now been of the pill waiting for my period to start for one week now and nothing. I took a pregnancy test and it was negative, it was one of the cheap tests though that do not give results before a missed period. Because I have skipped my period I am not sure when my expected period is supposed to start. I have a 7 year old daughter so I have been pregnant before. I am having some strange side effects though. Besides no bleeding I have had headaches on and off multiple times a day, a little bit of confusion, and diarrhea multiple times a day. My basal body temp usually falls somewhere around 97.6% and my temperature has been elevated to about 98.7% for the past 4 days now. I have had some lower back pain and neck tension but nothing severe. I also feel extremely bloated. Any advice at all would be greatly appreciated. Not sure if I should wait a little bit longer and take another pregnancy test or if maybe this is due to a hormonal imbalance since I was trying to manipulate my period. (never doing that again). I know normally any time I accidently miss a pill or I stop taking the pill I start feeling crampy and at least start spotting if not bleeding and like I said, none of that and its been a week. Thank you!

I went to the doctor and they said it’s just thrush, should I get a herpes blood test?

I met a sex worker more than a month ago, and came down with a fever/headache a week later. The headaches were really bad and lasted for around 10 days, and the doctor said this was some kind of viral fever. I did not see any blisters or sores on my genitals during this time. A week after it subsided, I got a few red spots on my glans. I went to the doctor and they said it’s just thrush and I was given an anti-fungal cream. The spots reduced the next day and it responded well to the treatment. They also tested me for STDs (everything except herpes) and it was all negative.
It’s been a month since my last sexual encounter. But I’m worried this whole thing was due to herpes. Should I go back and get a herpes blood test?
