1. Occasionally she has difficulty breathing. 2. The lesions are not painful. 3. The pain is limited to her right arm pit. She has concerns of maybe contracting syphilis about 5 years ago. She's had 2 different tests for syphilis that came back negative, but we've heard they often come back with false negatives. The only test she hasn't had is the spinal tap procedure for syphilis. Is there any definitive test you can recommend.

Brief Answer:
No need to go for spinal tap for syphilis.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your follow up question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
No need to worry for syphilis.
So no need to go for spinal tap. It is invasive procedure.
Which syphilis tests she has done?
Has she consulted any dermatologist?

Hello, recently I went to urgent care with chest pain and periodically needing to take a deep breath. I really thought I would be going in for stress . They did a CT scan and they said they found a small shadow that they believed was a small clot. They had me go th er where they had me stay over night, my vent scan came back with low probability, the sonos on my legs found no clots, I have since been home and chest pain comes and goes and I really only have to take a deep breath when I am getting more stressed over this. It has been 3 days and I am still waiting results on the d dimer. I have also spent a lot of money on a months worth of blood thinners for the posibility it could come back negative. I am also a perfectly health 31 yr old female, non smoker, active, good shape, only had a laproscopic appendectomy last month. I am just not sure where to go from here because I am doubting my drs now

How come when I cough , I feel like I have an itch? It s driving me crazy. I ve been sick for about 3 days now, and idk if it s a small cold or something serious. But this morning I woke up with it kinda hard to breath because I had a lot of mucus in my chest or wherever, so I had to cough to clear it up. Just wondering if the coughing and getting itching sensation is tied to any of that.

Hi, I am 23 years old student, weight 43kg, high 154sm. Since i went to college(3 years), i felt some palpitations, first after some activity, and then for no reason, even when i was just sitting. Last years i made some tests, ECG showed normal rhythm, but 125bpm, and the echo and TSH were normal. Sometimes, if I have some worries or sth, i feel like i can not fill myself with air, like sth stops me in taking a deep breath, so i think anxiety cause that all, but it's not normal for me that my heart rate is never below 100bpm. Also, i can feel the beating in abdominal aorta, and with my 43kg it's not difficult to notice it without touching. Just 10 minutes ago i had one of those episodes (mentioning that these 2 days i am i little tired), so i checked the blood presure, it was 130/80, which i think is another problem.
Any thoughts? Last year the doctor said it's all about emotions, but i can't stop to think about that, especially when i feel like today, like my heart is gonna fly away.
