Question: personalI am 29 year women who fairly recent began to have vaginal itching, light vaginal blreding and lower abdominal pain. my last period was November 27th and end December 5th. I have only had one sex partner for the last 4 years. I just recently had STD testing and all results came back negative for any STD. I tried contacting my PCP for a medical appointment was told she can't see until after the new year. what can possibly be wrong with me?

Hello,
Thank you for posting a question.

Firstly, the symptoms you described definitely indicate presence of infection in the genital tract. It mainly occurs due to fungal infection. Abdominal pain indicates possibility of pelvic inflammatory disease also.

Depending thee findings, and your history of single partner, for 4 years, you have to do the following.
1.     You have to use condom during sexual intercourse.
2.     If you are on pill, stop it after completing course for this month.
3.     You should visit a gynecologist immediately. You need a clinical examination, a pap smear examination. If you are not able to have an appointment within this month, you should visit a general physician.
4.     Anti-fungal agent like fluconazole should be considered.
5.     Anti-fungal agent like clotrimazole should be considered for intravaginal medication, if candidiasis is suspected.
6.     For presence of pelvic inflammatory disease, doxycycline should be considered.

Lastly, consult a doctor (gynecologist / general physician) as early as possible for clinical examination, ordering the required investigations and also for further management accordingly.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.

Regards.

Hello,

Thank you for writing back.

The possibility of the reason you told is very less.

You can use the over the counter drug till you visit your gynecologist. But, for the drugs i mentioned earlier, you really need a prescription. You can consult with your general physician about this.

Dear Doctor

I am a female 58 yrs and weigh 70 kgs ,I suffered from labryntitus on 28th june 2011 and am taking serc-8 and cyclizine 50 mg . Previously for about 10 years I did suffer from vertigo , but this time it was worst and was accompanied by a humming machinery sound too.

All of it has gone but I feel tired

Please advise how long one needs to rest from work and how to cope with it.

I work on the computers and travel by underground tube 45 min each way ...can I CONTINUE FORM THE 5TH JULY or do I see my G.P

Pl advise what course of action I shud take and the things i need to avoid and for how long ....your guidance shall be much appreciated.

Am querying current line of thinking by several consultants. Admitted to hospital May 2011; lumbar puncture showed elevated CSF protein of 1088 mg/L with 228 white cells, 95% lymphocytes. The working diagnosis was viral meningitis, and I was discharged after 2 days aciclovir. Negative for herpes simplex virus 1 and 2. Developed infection in leg early October 2011, followed by painful groin, then ulcers either side of scrotum - non painful, and diagnosed as shingles. Mid October 2011, following tinitus, buzzing , hearing different frequencies, then vertigo, admitted for 2 weeks in ID ward...CSF showed 614 white cells with 90% lymphocytosis. CSF protein raised at 1335 mg/L. Tested for everything under the sun, incl. HIV, syphillis, Lyme disease, Cat scratch fever (leg infection thought to have been through an insect bite). All negative, incl. ANA. Chest x-ray, MRI scan of brain and whole spine also negative. Admitted again 26th December 2011, aciclovir for seven days, now back home feeling well, if a little tired. Current thought is Mollarets meningitis, but more recently, rheumatology dept. thinking Behcets syndrome, as I suffer from mouth ulcers. My contention is this; I have sufferd from mouth ulcers since a teenager taking exams at school. If I have a job interview, I will get mouth ulcers after @ 48 hours. Dentist thinks stress induced, as do I. I have no aching joints and no eye irritation, also, just found out that HLAB51 negative. I am a 42 year old British male and caucasian. I can t help feeling there s a square peg being pushed into a round hole here. What about migraine; the tinitus, buzzing and vertigo? Also, I took a non-steroidal (Ibuprofen) prior to the first two episodes. Bickerstaff s encephalitis sounds just as plausible as Behcets...or am I in denial? I would appreciate any advice, even if it s to simply face the music . Thank you for your time.

2 1/2 weeks after gallbladder removal I started getting dizzy. It subsides when I turn my head quickly. I notice that a lot of people have persistant dizziness or vertigo following gallbladder surgery. I've been to the doctor who recommended sinus rince and decongestant. What do you think?
