Question: I have had the flu for about a week and possibly a urinary infection (there is no blood in my urine but a discomfort in the tubes of the Johnson). I feel fuzzy, have a dry mouth and today my right kidney is aching. My sense of taste has also gone in the past few days. I have only taken a few doses of aspirin. I am generally run-down.

Hi,
Welcome to XXXXXXX and thanks for your query.
Features point to infection and it could well be the urine due to urinary symptoms.
You need physical examination and battery of tests to confirm the diagnosis including bloods and urine culture tests.
Appropriate antibiotics will be started based on that and can be done after consulting your GP.
Meanwhile pain killers and aspirin should help.
Best regards
DR GS

Hi, it has been a week now since I donated blood and there is terrible bruising along the side and right above where they placed the needle. There is also a stiff tightening pain as I move my arm that goes from my elbow up towards my shoulder. I ve taken aspirin and ibuprofen occasionally to try and ease the pain but nothing has helped. I even tried icing it on and off the first few days after, which was recommended by our American Red Cross donation center. Should I be concerned?

Hi Doc

I am a male, 68yo, widower, Chinese (not from China). I lead an active sex life.....I have sex at least twice a week sometimes with different women (not prostitute). For the last 1 month, 5 out of 10 times that I have sex...I couldn't ejaculate although the sensation of ejaculation were there. I have Type 1 Diabetes..I inject 52mg of insulin everyday plus captoril and simvastatin. I also consume 80mg of Aspirin everyday for the last 20 years.



My question is.....Is there any kind of medication\drug that I can take so that I can ejaculate each time I have sex.



Thank you.
