I have an intermittent low hum in my right ear, please advise?

I have an intermittent low hum in my right ear only. It sometimes goes ‘on and off’ when I turn my head from side to side. It also sometimes starts if I press around my earlobe area. Sometimes it is in synch with my heartbeat and other times it is just a continuous hum. I have had my ear checked and my wax is normal levels and there is no damage to my eardrum. I am 49 yr old male.

Diagnosed with bronchitis 5 days ago, I feel short of breath and my heart starts racing?

51 yr old female diagnosed with bronchitis 5 days ago. Taking amoxicillin, tessalon perles, Proair inhaler and guiafenisen. No wheezing, chest xray was okay. Some dizziness but could be from sinus congestion. O2 sats are great during the day when up, moving and coughing. As soon as i lie down at night, drop to 96-97% but when I start to doze, i feel short of breath and my heart starts racing. O2 sat drops to 90%. Now I’m afraid to lie down and sleep.

I had acute lower abdominal pain throughout the night?

12 days ago I had acute lower abdominal pain throughout the night, the next day i started with all over body ache, fever, loss of appetite and vomiting with extreme tiredness, this lasted for four days. During that time I did not take my usual medication, levothyroxine and the mini pill. On day 6 when still recovering from the illness I started with a heavy period (I haven’t had a period for years due to the pill I take), I assumed this was because I had missed a few days of the contraceptive pill, but I am not sure whether these two problems are linked or not. I have never experienced a period so heavy with a lot of blood clots and is as heavy now on day 7 of the period as it was on day 1. I have done a pregnancy test to check its not a miscarriage but it’s negative. I am a 40 yr old with previous history of large benign ovarian cysts which has resulted in the removal of one ovary two years ago. Any advice gratefully received.

I noticed fasciculation in my calves and some very very mild cramps?

Since 1 Month I noticed fasciculation in my calves and some very very mild cramps.
I get also twitches all over in tights, biceps triceps, eye, temple but they are rare and go away.

Actions I took (given I’ve been diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder 2 months ago):

1st week: Went to see 1st neurologist which dismissed ALS/MND from the beginning based on a quick clinical exam and as he expressed “They way I walked in”.
2nd week: Saw a board neurologist with 50 years o experience is his field which he dismissed ALS/MND as well and he didn’t even considered necessarly to do an EMG study.
3rd week: Finally found a neuro-muscular specialist with 10 years of experience which agreed to do an EMG in 3 limbs (Legs, Right hand) and a nerve conduction study.

What he told me (still waiting for a final report yet):
1. No evidence of MND , he clearly stated on a white paper for me to be re-assured.
2. He suspects a lumbar radiculopathy (I do have some pain around L4-L5)
3. A pinched ulnar nerve (light) in the right elbow (according ncs) which doesn’t bother me.
4. 3rd clinical exam without any clinical weakness or athrophy noticed by all doctors.

The reason I am experiencing this anxiety is that my DAD died of ALS in 2003.
Mom mentioned that a neurologist made a genetic test for me and he found that I have no predisposition. (But I really don’t remember if I did had the genetic test or not).
Dad was sporadic I think as nobody from it’s family had any neuro diseases in the past (He has 2 sisters and 1 brother).
Grandparents were ok.

Last doctor said no EMG is required for follow up, but if I can do a spine MRI (no contrast) In 3 months would be good albeit is nothing to worry about now.

So, finally my questions are. (Being 30 years old). (Condensing)

1. Could EMG miss ALS/PLS or any MND ? If it can, what Is the chance? ( found 2,3 cases on the internet with people which claimed they started with fascics and then weakness ).
2. Could EMG study misdiagnose?

I had a hysterectomy last year now it broke?

I had a hysterectomy last year, my friends came to visit me when I returned home and we were laughing and I felt something pop, I assumed I burst some stitches. I didn’t have any pain at the time as I was taking gabapentin for capsulitis in both shoulders. I recently weaned off gabapentin and I am in severe pain and distention in my abdomen. My GP referred me for an ultrasound on my ovaries which came back clear, but I am still in agony.

I have strange “bites” or “rash”, please advise?

Trying to find out what these strange “bites” or “rash” places are. Small red bumps in nearly a “V” shape. They do NOT itch. Not really any pain or anything. Maybe something viral? I have had something going on with RUQ abdomen into lower area toward hip, intermittent pain and bouts of nausea. Not sure if it could be related. The area on back of upper left arm appeared 1 day ago (a few random spots on other areas of left arm, maybe 4 other spots), area on mid/upper left back appeared today. Thought possibly shingles but again, no itching or pain. Any ideas?

I am a 44 years old female and fractured my coccygeal vertebra?

I am a 44 years old female and fractured my coccygeal vertebra 26 years ago. I did not have any pain after my fracture had healed but ever since May 2015 I am suffering from coccygeal vertebra pain. I had a MRI/NMR test in 2016 which displayed chronic inflammation of the coccygeal vertebra soft tissue. For the past two years, I have received shockwave therapy, super laser therapy, acupuncture, moxibustion, Chinese and western medicine therapy. None of which worked. In september 2015, I’ve also suffered from anal pain and i found relief in coccygeal vertebra and anal pain whilst lying down on my sides. Since september 2016, my hips became sore and tender due to sleeping on my sides. Now I cannot lie down, sit or stand for long periods of time, which had severely affected my sleep. The hospital examined my hip, legs, groin, lower abdomen, pubic symphysis pain and suggested myofascial lesions (aseptic inflammation). What are some possible treatments?

I had an ENT exam and the specialist did not use gloves?

I had an ENT exam and the specialist did not use gloves. The tubing the second time she went up my nose was touched at the bottom by her hand at the light. I should have stopped her and am beating myself up. I am ocd and PANICKED ! and watched this happen but somehow trusted her as she is well respected. She had used hand sanitizer she claims prior when she came in but shook my hand afterwards having been at another doctors and registering my thumbprint on the check in but I did use hand sanitizer twice but was holding a plastic cup from the water cooler) and then did the procedure the second time having touched the tip of the scope with her fingers. She wrote back she will change her ways and seemed unconcerned for my health. The pcp is under the same system and told me “not to worry” but agreed to do the testing I want. What tests should I have? Should i wait to get symptoms? I again am not sure she even used sanitizer. I am asking the pcp to do an hiv and Mrsa test. What else major should I have her test for? Hep C? I was not vaccinated against Hep B. Please help. It has been 48 hours and I feel okay.
