Question: On Saturday I cleaned the grout on my tile floors. I did a few at a time and rested. I did use a household and some Clorox. Yesterday I took a hot shower and my my lungs hurt so badly. My son said that I had opened my lungs up and they were inflamed from the cleaners. My question is will they heal on their own? Do I need to do anything? Will I have repercussions in the future from this?

Brief Answer:
Likely to resolve on its own.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concern. I would assume that it was your chest that hurt. It does not mean that your lungs hurt. There are many other structures in the chest that could be involved. It could be due to simple muscle fatigue. Catching a cold, a virus, or an allergic reaction could also be the cause. In such a case the entire issue should resolve in a week or less. It is expected to resolve on its own although a clinical examination would be necessary in order to confirm. Taking steam inhalation and some antiallergic like cetirizine and also paracetamol should help. Future repurcussions are unlikely although such episodes can occur independently in the future.

I have difficulty urinating (I still retain a lot of urine), chronic constipation, episodes of blood in the stools, hemmorhoids, occasional bouts of muscle fatigue, iron deficiency anemia. I had cancer of the kidney 11 years ago and had one of the kidneys removed. I am gettting a colonoscopy tomorrow and having the hemmorhoids removed. Do you think this is going to solve my problems? I am concerned about having either colon or prostate cancer or both. I am 57 years old.

Hi, I have extreme bloating, in the morning, when i dont eat, and obviously ten times worse when i eat anything. so much that i can barely eat. My urine is very dark and strong smelling, I drink only water, and about 2-4 litres a day. I am unable to lose weight and i weigh about 12kgs above my normal weight. I go to the gym 5 days a week, walk home from work 4 nights a week (7km). I am at my wits end trying to figure out whats wrong with me. When i eat carbohydrates i gain even more weight, its as if im insulin resistant. So i stay away from heavy carb foods, but now im finding im quite depressed and down unless i eat a bit of sugar. Then im back to the happy bubbly person i used to be. I have extremely bad breath even though i have great oral hygene. I have muscle fatigue, a sore neck all the time, and very bad circulation. If im working out on a machine my feet and legs go dead, the same if im chilling out and have my legs resting high against something, i get bad pins and needles first, almost instantly, then they go completely dead. I have a horrible spotty rash aswell around my mouth and nose. Any answers are greatly appreciated, thanks.

I was diagnosed with "chronic fatigue syndrome" at the Mayo Clinic. Not believing it since I don't fit the CDC profile and have other symptoms not associated with cfs, I obtained a new internist locally and he agreed to test me for parasites. I was found to have dientamoeba fragilis. Could this parasite cause symptoms such as muscle fatigue (esp. in legs), muscle fasiculation (esp. in legs), shortness of breath, and coughing?
