Blood clots/thread in urine, burning sensation, chest pain. Cause and Cure? - Online Doctor Chats
welcome to XXXXXXX
HOW Can i help u today ?
i need for your help in diagnosis problem for my husband
sure, please proceed
he is frequently getting some blood clots/thread in his urine
and also some time feel pin type pain left side of chest
may i know his age ?
how long has he had them ?
any issues while passing urine , pain , burning etc ?
quite some time
no other issue
where exactly does he have the pain in the chest ?
centre of rib
is it the burning type ?
does it increase with eating food ?
no burning stuff
no exactly after eating
it ocuurs empty stomach also
or sometime after eating food
what about the blood
in addition, he should get a urinalysis, to check for any form of urinary infection, due to which he has blood in the urine
presence of any infection , can be ruled out
if this happened only once or twice, and has not occured again, that it could be just a benign issue, occuring due to cuts within the urethra, which usually heal themselves
if the condition is lasting more than a few days, then proper treatment and evaluation needs to be done
this occuring from more than a month
does it occur everytime he urinates ? or only once a day ?
it ocuurs for 2-3 days then disappears then again returns
once or twice
have u followed my suggestions ?
ya got it
with regarding to his gastritis pain, he should avoid eating too spicy and fat XXXXXXX foods
eating food at proper time, at regular intervals, as well as drinking enough water, reducing intake of too much of tea or cofee and also avoiding alcohol is also adviced
ok... he takes less spicy food .... but he skips brakfast
may be that be issue
he should avoid doing that
eating at proper time, and proper food is important
he can have a banana , apples, or other fruits, in between, if he is about to miss a meal, due to work
once the test results have come in, you can consult a doctor, for proper guidance and help
i have one more query
my hb is 8.9 & feritin is 5.7
i am taking iron tonic, deoxyange (something like this)
but my hb went down inside of going up
since how long is this been ?
from last 6-7 month
it was 9.3 then went to 9.10
have u done any tests , after being on such tablets ?
now went down to 8.9
has a peripheral blood smear been done ? was a repeat iron study done ?
ya 8.9 one is latest (did on sat)
in oct i had test feritin was 7
and on sat test its 5.7
no blood smear test done
also tested for reticulcocyte count done - its 1.80
is the RBC counts, WBC and platelets normal ?
rbc is 4.70, platelet is 203.0
pcv is 31.20
so the counts are normal
the MCV is less, which means, it is microcytic anemia
which is due to iron and folic acid deficiency
in people with stomach ulcers, they may have reduced intestinal absorption of the iron
so, in such cases oral tablets may not help
i am taking tonic not tablet
it is the same
i am taking proper diet also
in such cases, it is necessary, that iron injections be given along with erythropoietin injections , and folic acid supplements
first, get a peripheral blood smear, and Folic acid levels checked
you can also get a B 12 levels checked too
based on the findings, proper treatment and advice can be suggested
peripheral blood smear test is for ?
one more help for pimples
can you suggest some gud tube or anyhting
my skin is sensitive , due to dust or pollution acnes comes
you can use BENZAC AC cream , 2-3 times daily
use it regularly for 4-6 weeks
will it harm the skin of face ?
it may cause dryness, if you apply it all over the skin
it is to be applied on the acne itself
you can start with a 2.5 % gel
if they do not help, you can switch to the 5 % gel
you need to keep your face clean, and use a good cleanser and face wash, regularly to remove the oil and grease
that should help
i have a dry skin
so use a good moisturising cream like NIVEA , or DOVE
ya i use nivea one
That is a good cream for dry skin
also avoid exposure to too much sun
use a hat or face covering to avoid skin damage due to sun exposure
will this gel will also work for spots left after acne goes
i have 3-4 of them
yes, if the scarring is mild, it will help,
if not, you can use SCAR NIL cream, to remove the scars
other creams , that can be used include REVITOL scar cream
thanks a lot
