I have had anxiety for over 6 years?

I have had anxiety for over 6 years. I’ve tried effexor, zoloft, lexapro, seroquel, and klonopin. A mild chiari malformation with 6mm herniation was found incidentally. I have a problem with sensory overload. I cannot read more than about a page or two per day, or watch too many videos, etc., or it will make me feel extremely anxious and panicky. This problem has stolen my life away. Is there any explanation for this?

Medications: effexor
General Information: These are minor compared to main problem:
pain behind eyes
tachycardia with mild exercise
tingling in forehead
occasional headaches at back of head
right ear pain

Does this look like a bat bite?

Does this look like a bat bite? Husband and I were outside around 11pm in Indianapolis in a hotel parking lot. Husband was lifting heavy items, like an unboxed microwave, boxes, and an ironing board into another car. Husband was wearing a hoodie, jeans, and shoes. I saw bats flying around a distance away, nowhere near us. When we got inside, I found this mark on his hand. Husband says he neither saw a bat near him nor felt a bat touch his hand. I want to know if he would feel it and if this looks like a bite. It is one mark, not two puncture holes. Could it be a scrape from lifting things instead?

I have been taking tramadol for pain in my shoulder, knee and for a large toe joint replacement?

I have been taking tramadol for pain in my shoulder, knee and for a large toe joint replacement. I have been on these pills for over 11 years now and was taking up to 300 mg twice daily. I want off of them due to the terrible side effects. Recently I decided to put these pills down cold turkey and currently am on my 5th day with no tramadol. Needless to say this has not been anywhere near pleasant and I am begging someone to give me an answer for the restless legs. They are just relentless in these last 5 days I have slept about 6 hours but lack of sleep has benefitted some plumbing fixtures that needed updating LOL. Today problem is severe cramping and uncontrollable diarreah. Could someone give me a clue about the duration of this withdrawal process PLEASE
thanks

Did I have an early miscarriage?

I left my teaching position to return to school and as a result I had to change medical insurance. I had (—) all docs are in network. This meant I needed to find new doctors as of December. Four months ago I started having issues of bad bloating, abdominal pain, weight gain, distension, spotting white tissue, fatigue, and brownish -reddish discharge during sex. I had to establish care with new doctors. This began April 30th. End of May I had a pap smear with new ob/gyn and he said everything is normal. I was still experiencing all the symptoms above (coffee grind specks when wiping and white tissue not enough to wear a panty liner and brownish discharge during sex). I scheduled another appointment to follow up on the continued issue of irregular discharge, but I canceled due to travel.

On Friday June 22nd while out of state I passed an enormous mass on what would have been the first day of my cycle. One ended looked like gray chicken skin covered in the coffee grind discharge mentioned earlier and the other end a long uterus shaped clot covered in the mysterious white tissue mentioned earlier. I passed a tremendous amount of blood that day. I consulted my new doc’s office and they said to go to an ER in that state or wait and see a different doctor in my hospital group first thing Monday. After a urine test second ob/gyn dismissed it as a polyp and said I wasn’t pregnant. On 6/29 a transvaginal ultrasound showed a 1 cm mass. My ob/gyn said it looks like a miscarriage/endometrial cast but he was unsure. He sent me for a hysterosonogram the following cycle. On the first day of that cycle 7/14 I passed more tissue. The last 5 pictures in the collage. Hysterosonogram 7/24 came back no signs of mass. I had odd smells up until I passed the last tissue. Ob/gyn says it wasn’t a polyp, but he doesn’t know what it was consult a new physician in my new state of Ohio. I moved 2 weeks ago. Did I have an early miscarriage?

I am planning for an hGH treatment with the goal to repair the various healthy tissue, and build up the appearance of the skin?

Dear Doctors,

I am planning to do a Full Health Checkup including detailed Cancer Screening.

Reason: I am planning for an hGH treatment with the goal to repair the various healthy tissue, and build up the appearance of the skin. In short, an anti-ageing treatment.

Therefore, I need to be checked for any potential side effects, like the risk of heart disease/diabetes or the growth of cancerous tumours. The goal of my test is this full test and diagnostics.

My question to you, is what should I be looking out for and what kind of diagnosis?

I am 49 years man from Scandinavia, and I have had a stressful work for over 20 years now. I often have diarrhoea — perhaps I did eat something when I lived Latin America several years ago.

I have always felt for something in my belly. To have a light pain, but a feeling like there is something there, close to the location of the left ductus deferens. I also need to check my skin for any potential danger, like skin cancer. It’s in my family.

I have one boy, born in 2000. However, not been able to have another child after that, and we have tried everything.

I also like to test for a potential pituitary gland tumours. But, I like to look into deeper testings like clinical microbiome test for bacteria analysis on gut conditions (test for Inflammatory Bowel Disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and diabetes).

I would very much appreciate your insides, views and feedback on what I should do. Thank you!

Six months ago my new GP put me on the anticoagulant Rivaroxaban?

Six months ago my new GP put me on the anticoagulant Rivaroxaban. From the outset I had blood in my urine. She sent me for urological tests and kidney stones were found which have now been operated on.
It took three operations and before the third operation I had to have a blood transfusion.
During the 8 days I was in hospital I was not allowed to take Rivaroxaban and the blood in urine stopped.
Going back on them after discharge and I am back to blood in urine. I am still on these tablets and back to losing blood every time I urinate. How can this be right I feel I will soon need another transfusion.
My GP has an interest in heart problems and ordered the following tests for me (not that I had visited or requested any tests) The results were as follows:

Clinical cardiovascular examination normal

Resting ECG sinus rhythm

24 hour tape sinus rhythm

Echocardiogram normal sized LV and good LV systolic function and no significant valvular abnormalities.

They say I have paroxysmal AF which apparently is worse than persistent AF. I have very, very few episodes. The ones I have only last less than a minute. Do I actually have AF?

From 2016 to date I have been under tremendous stress, illness and death of father and separation from husband, moving house, selling properties etc. but before my GP putting me on these tablets my health was very good, despite all the stress.
I am in no way over weight, size 10 and always eat a healthy diet. I do smoke when under stress but have given up several times, only to resume with stress – 5 to 10 max per day.
Should I keep taking these tablets. I can’t really – unless I want another blood transfusion soon!

Age: 66

Medications: Rivaroxaban 20mg and Citalopram 10mg and Atorvastatin 20mg
General Information: Diagnosed with AF in 2008. Awful stress had to sell our home. Put on tablets (don’t remember the name) taken off after a year. No treatment until this year – see above.

I have low blood readings of red blood cells?

I have low blood readings of red blood cells 2.2, white blood cells 3.3, hgb of 10.2, hct of 28, and platelets normal but come down from 290 to 226. These readings seem a little not good to me especially since a few have come down a little lower when I checked them last. Doctors have said they are low but not to be concerned about them and fluff them off, in addition to not telling me what exactly is causing all of this to go lower.
I have had chronic illness for years (allergies lupus and bronchospasm) but am used to having good blood readings in blood counts and being able to walk even though I had pains then too.
(not so bad to do this)
Am I to believe that because I can’t eat fruit now (because of worsening allergies) that these readings are now that much lower from where they were just a few years ago? That was the only change in my diet since then. I have worsening all over body pains so bad I have trouble moving now and difficulty walking and even standing as well as chronic dyspnea. Thank you.

I’ve noticed my hair thinning at the center of the top of my scalp?

Hello. I have an appointment to see a dermatologist in two weeks to look at my scalp, as my hair is shedding more than normal and I’ve noticed it thinning at the center of the top of my scalp. But the wait to find out is killing me.

Three months ago, I went through probably the hardest breakup of my life, leaving me depressed, heartbroken and frustrated for several weeks while heading into finals at school (I am 26 years old, by the way).

Since that breakup, I started dieting and working out heavily and lost 40 pounds in the last three months. Two months ago, I was forced to move out of my apartment into a new house at the same time I had just booked a vacation trip, costing me roughly $2,500 all at once, so that was beyond stressful. And I have had a bit of anxiety working full time with another semester on the horizon, while being offered a coaching job on top of that. So I have stressed about where I will find the time for all that. I have also had sleep paralysis twice in the past few weeks, but I’m not sure if that is related or not.

My father and his father both suffered from different patterns of permanent hair loss, while the grandfather on my mother’s side still to this day has a full head of hair. My primary care physician took a brief look and said he believes the hair will grow back and that it might be telogen effluvium due to the weight loss and/or extreme stress levels, as my blood work and thyroid tests came back very clean. Also, the hair that falls out all has a little white bulb on the end that was in the scalp.

I noticed my hair shedding more than usual about 1.5 months ago. What are the chances this could just be telogen effluvium and not permanent hair loss/male pattern baldness? And if it is telogen effluvium or some other form of temporary hair loss, what should I expect moving forward? Thank you for taking your time to read/reply. It is greatly appreciated.
