Question: Twins with Hydronephrosis, E. coli…need urography?

We have twin 18 years old sons (Robert & Anthony) & we are all british citizens living in Romania.
Last year Robert had a pain in his left side & after having an MRI scan with a contrast substance
was diagnosed as having Hydronephrosis in his left kidney due to a partially blocked ureter.
They said it was a defect from birth.
He had a laser operation on his ureter,a stent was inserted for 2 1/2 months.
This was removed in January this year, he has had no problems since so far.
The doctors did say that because he has a twin (Anthony) he also has most likely the same defect.
Anthony has had no problems & we were in the U.K. for the month of July.
The doctors here recommended that they both have a Urography done with contrasting substance.
When we mentioned that Anthony had a mild allergic reaction to penicillin whe he was a child
they would not do this Urography unless they both had a short course of drugs prior to this.
The drugs are Prednisone 5mg 10 @12hr before, 10 @ 7hr before & 10 @ 1hr before.
Tamalis 10mg 1 @ 12hr before & 1 @ 1hr before
Xyzal 5mg 1 @ 1hr before & 1 @ 1hr before
Famotida 40mg 1 @ 12hr before & 1 @ 1hr before
This seems so extreme to us
My wifes mother had Prednisone & she became ill & died, So she is totally against these drugs.
Now that we are back in Romania Anthony has said that his left side hurts a little bit now & again.
So we really want to check him over but as I said the doctors here will not do it without a precourse of drugs.
We have been to various allergists concerning Anthony.
I have paid for a private blood & urine tests & now he is not allergic to penicillin but now they say he has e coli.
All test/ analasis are done privately & with experience are not the most reliable.
They will not OK him for this simple urography.
Here in Romania the doctors are obsessed with antibiotics & medicines & we are so confused on what to do next.
I’m not sure how quickly we could get to see a doctor/urologist in England to have this Urograph done.
Anthony starts his final year of schooling here in 2 weeks & it is the hardest year for him.
Ironically next year starting September 2017 he wants to go to university in U.K.
If we can’t find anyone here then I intend to visit England for the urography.
Yours Sincerely,

Question: For the past week now my heart has been pounding really non stop

For the past week now my heart has been pounding really non stop. I can’t even sleep with it like this. I have been getting like little short pains in (my left side) of my chest, arm, leg and foot. I’m also have been feeling my arm and leg get more tingling feeling in them. Also I’ve been getting dizzy whenever I’m up or even laying down. I’m terrified. This doesn’t feel normal. I had Kawasaki disease (don’t know how to spell it) when I was little (around five) and I had to have a lab made plasma for that but they did save me and said I should be ok.
I don’t know if this has to do with what’s going on or not.
I did get my heart to slow a little bit last night but then woke up with it pounding where I thought it would pound out of my chest or something
My mom thinks its all in my head. Its not. This is very terrifying for me ):
Hope someone can help

Question: I think I may have bacterial Vaginosis

I think I may have bacterial Vaginosis but am not sure. I recently had a new sexual partner, (always with protection apart from once for a few seconds) and also recently came off of my period once leaving a tampon in for too long overnight. Since these events I have noticed a thick white discharge which smells fishy and metallic accompanied by some itching around the vaginal entrance. I am using canesten for the itch but am not sure how to solve the rest of the problem. I am very prone to thrush but it’s never had an odour before and the discharge is thicker. I am also slightly concerned that it could be gonorrhea. I am currently traveling in Cambodia so it is difficult for me to have access to good health care.

Question: After taking Adderall, heart rate high, breathing hard, feeling dizzy?

I am 18. 160lb. 67 inches. I would say my resting heart rate is around 60.
I had taken 20mg IR Adderall for studying. About 4 hours later I went to play basketball. After about an hour of intense play, I decided to stop because my heart rate was unusually high (200+ bpm) and I was completely drained of energy, which was weird because I usually play for about 3 hours no problem. I laid down waiting for my bpm to drop back to normal but it stayed reasonably high. I was also still breathing really hard. After about 10 minutes I decided to sit up against a wall.

Then I started to feel very uncomfortable.
My torso, arms, and face were very tingly.
My hands were pretty numb (I struggled to hold on to my phone).
My chest felt tight.
I was still breathing hard.
I barely had the energy to keep my eyes open, and after about 25 minutes I decided to stand up and leave. When I got up I felt very disoriented and dizzy. I struggled to keep my balance as I walked to my car. I sat there for about 20 more minutes and when the symptoms toned a bit down I drove home (30 min). When I got out of my car to walk to my dorm (3 blocks away), my symptoms came rushing back. I was struggling to swallow my saliva. I had to stop every 50 feet or so to catch my breath. When I got to my room I sat in a chair for about 25 min and the tingling feeling in my face/arms/torso, went away but the tightness in my chest stayed. Every time I take a breath it feels like I can’t inhale my full capacity.
Is this issue possibly life threatening?
