Cold room temperatures give me headaches and migraines?

I am searching for the medical term or explanation to a condition that I got ever since the following happened:

I was renting for a couple of years a flat (in a relatively new development/house) from a landlord, who refused to fix anything in it, including the heating, which was not working at all (from the very beginning) all winter long.
(I live in Europe by the way)

I was forced to sleep in a room with cold air. And then would get up with horrible headaches and migraines, because of that.

The thing it, it is now already a couple of years after I no longer live in that place, but the health damage still remains!

I am now sensitive to any somewhat cold room temperature (I believe already anything below 25 degrees Celsius), and still get up with forehead pain if having slept in anything but a warm room.
It is always the forehead that aches afterwards.

Please could you advise me what this is, if there is any medical term for this (it’s not hypothermia is it?), and if there is anything I could do in order to reverse the permanent damage which was caused.
(I never before, prior to living in the said flat under the described conditions, suffered from this phenomenon)
It is very impairing and debilitating to me and I cannot have a normal life (without needing to worry about if a room is warm enough, and without suffering forehead pain) anymore due to this.

Thank you very much in advance for your help and advice.

I had an allergic reaction to lip balm, what can I put on it safely?

Question: I had an allergic reaction to lip balm and by the time I got home and washed it off,
all the skin on my lips slushed off. Most regrew normal, but the center was puffy and yellowish. I thought it was from my Shea butter lip mask, but when it got torn just now it reeked. So, infected. But what can I put on it safely?

Should I go gluten free?

Question: I am having difficulty with digesting food. I suffer from regular diarrhea as well as constipation at times. I am a 35 year old woman and consider myself in pretty good shape. I eat well and exercise. Take no meds and have no health problems. But why these stomach problems? I can’t figure out the problem. So I am starting to believe I have gluten or maybe wheat intolerance.  Should I Go Gluten-Free?

Best Answer: Gluten free is important only if you suffer from celiac disease or have a special sensitivity to gluten. Which is NOT the case for most people. The gluten free argument is just a trend promoted by people on social media that serves their own interests. I’d think twice before cutting it out from my diet.

Does sudafed work for a bad sinus infection?

Question: Hi doc! I had a really bad sinus infection – really bad and I blew my nose non stop for awhile, now my ears are completely blocked. I feel as though my head is underwater. Does sudafed work? If not – what should I do????

Answer: Hi and thanks for your question. A sinusitis may cause your ears to clog. First and foremost, stop blowing your nose. Start using Xylometazoline nasal drops followed by steam inhalation. Also take an anti-inflammatory like Ibuprofen (advil). You may need best prescription based oral and topical steroids as well as antibiotics if there is evidence of a bacterial infection. If symptoms persist order please consult, you will need to get blood and CT scan for sinuses, nose and mastoids. Rest and avoid extreme weather changes.

Our 9 years old son have a long-term problems/difficulties when eating?

our 9 years old son have a long-term problems/difficulties when eating, esp. immediately after a meal. We have also observed a permanent hyperactivity, tiredness and other symptoms. 2 months ago we decided to let him check for food allergy. A blood IgE test results showed an allergy on cow milk protein with a value measured 12,6 kIU/L. The medical report marked it as a class III. allergy on milk protein. Unfortunately we have not got any type of related consulting and advice how to follow this findings. Should we absolutely exclude only cow milk or also everything where any kind of milk is included? We also have read this allergy can be dangerous, i.e. sometimes sympthomes can be signifficant and there should be always at disposal an injection. We would appreciate a lot any kind of advise how to proceed and how to keep our boy. Would you recommend also other type of second testing in order to confirm the first results? Is the class III. significant? Can it be developed in the future even higher. Is there a high chance it will be eliminated together with age?

Age: 46
Medications: I asked on behalf my son problems

I am coughing intermittently for about 5 months now, is this an allergy?

I am coughing intermittently for about 5 months now, my doctor advised me to get an allergy test done. Which I did.
The IGE immunoglobin serum test which I made came back with a value of 515 and the laboratory reference value is <65. Does this mean I have allergies- that I am allergic to something? I would like to know if this indicates that there is a problem with me? What do I need to do now? Is there medication that I need to take? I am a 35 year old woman. I never had any problems before. Don't take any medication whatsoever. Please let me know as soon as possible. Thanking you and your team ahead of time. Regards (...)

Wearing anything synthetic causes extreme nausea, faintness and beating heart?

I am 67and female. I have always had very dry skin, and at present wearing anything synthetic causes extreme nausea, faintness and beating heart. The symptoms gradually worsen until I remove the offending item(s). The same symptoms occur temporarily if I even touch synthetics fabrics of any kind. A dermatologist recommended Aveena moisturizing cream and prescribed Clobetasone. But the Aveena produced the same symptoms and I had to bathe, flannel and towel it off, and do not like therefore to risk the Clobetasone. The condition has gradually become more extreme over the past couple of months. I cannot even go out, as the synthetic lining all coats have affects me even through the clothes underneath, and feels as if it is burning me. Could I have thin skin? Would extreme dehydration cause it?

I have an allergy for dust mites, now pain in back of head when I cough?

I have an allergy for dust mites and about two times a year the symptoms get much worse. Just like it did two weeks ago. But now when I cough I suddenly have to endure pain in the back of my head at the height of my right ear, but a bit more to the middle of the back of my head.

I added a photo to indicate where the pain is.

It feels like it stings me and then the pain stays for about 20 minutes. After that it slowly drifts away.
It is the worst in the morning and in the evening and it is getting worse by the day.

I am a 19 year old guy.

My son has ADHD, Allergies and Colon issues. He is often sick but doctors don’t seem to be concerned?

My son is 11 years old, 4’11” weighs 69.8 lbs, is currently diagnosed with ADHD, his IGE is elevated and has been taking allergy shots for mold, dust mites, pollen, trees, grasses, cats, dogs, etc. His igA is present but about half the level it should be and his igG was also low. His A/G Ratio is 2.3, his Bun/create ratio is 21. His pneumococcal numbers from vaccines were low so he recently had to redo the pneumococcal shots (both the 11 and the one they give to the elderly). His urinalysis results showed mucousUrine- Present(A) andAmorphous Crystals -Few(A). Biopsies of his colon showed “a microscopic examination was done. No pathologicchangeswere noted in any of the biopsies, but there was a nonspecific finding in the random colon biopsies. Rare glands contain a few intraepithelialeosinophils in the absence of any interstitial inflammation ”

All of this has been over a number of tests. He also has been on a gluten free diet for a year as it seemed to give him severe stomache aches. Anything we should know or are missing with all of this. Each Doctor individually doesn’t seem too concerned but my son is often sick and missing school.

Is my new girlfriend allergic to me, I mean in a medical way?

Hi, my new girlfriend has been breaking out with hives after contact with me (kissing, touch). I live in Canada and she is in Oregon, we’ve spent time together on two occasions in the last month. She has reacted within a few days of contact with small round bumps developing on her shoulders, her back, and her bottom lips. I have never experienced anything like this with any other partner. We have no ideas of what could be causing this. Could she be allergic to my saliva? I take no medications, nor do I use any strong soaps or products. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You

I had an allergic reaction while taking a shower, I am not allergic to anything or any medication?

I’m a 53yr old female on Nov 16 I had an allergic reaction while taking a shower. I was in a facility where nurses were available. I got to their station and passed out. When I came to they gave me benedryl and had called the paramedics. I am not allergic to anything or any medication. Since this episode 2 weeks ago my energy level is low and I fell fatigued most of the time. They advised me to see my GP. Thinking this was an isolated incident, I held off making an appointment. While at home tonight I was in the shower started to itch and get blotchy. Feeling the same symptoms as 2 weeks ago, I turned the water to ice cold. Got out of the shower and scratched and put lotion on. What is going on?
