thanks for visiting this web site,wysolone is steroid,has powerful antiinflamatory drug,taking wysolone10mg daily will not affect you much except you should not be having hypertension,diabetes&thyroid problems.whenever you get accute attacks,take prednisolone for a week, starting from highdose,tapering to low dose at last.donot take whenever you free from wheezing& again you can switch on the drug for week&taper it,it will help you always rather causing side effects much,as you have estableshed inflamatery process in your lungs.consult pulmonologist for details.

Dear Doctor. I am working in Gulf. I am single 34. last march I came to India. During my vacation. I had sex with one married girl. Her husband also working in abroad. She was not a prostitute. She was one of my friends classmate. I saw rash in both of her lower arms. She told me that was allergy problem. Now I belive she was infected with HIV. During sex I used condom. but I put my fingers inside . and there was a small cut in my finger that happends 2 days before. and there was deep kissing . and she done oral without protection less than 1 min. After 2 days of the event I felt joint pain in fingers. and a small rash came to my upper lips and roof of my mouth . After around 35 days of this event some problems started on me:- 1 In my right side of my tounge and lips appeard white spots. 2, sore throat, reddish throat and swollen tonsil for a month. and my sound change. Red eyes for 2 days and foamy saliva 3, little swollen lymph nodes in neck and groin. 4, Very mild Flu around 3 week . a cold and discomfort feeling from chest and stomac 5,itchy Rash came in my whole body. coming and disappearing in 30 minutes 6, Neck stiffness and pain 7, 1 week there was diarrhea 8, swollen left upper eyelid one day 9, musle vibration in whole body 10, Digestion problem 11, black bloody spot in lips for one day 12, head presure 13 fatigue 14,Ear whisiling I took Augmentin 625 for 5 days. I am fearing to go a hopital here. I told her that you have some problem. So you should take a test. she went to a doctor and done General check up . and she told she is ok.she dont have any problem . I think she did not take Hiv test. Now I am very upset and worried about HIV. As I am in abroad I cannot take a Hiv test here anonymously. I belive i am infectd with HIV. What I want to do next? can I confirm HIV with these symptoms? If I am infected when I want to start treatment. How long I can hide this from others and family members. Is there any hope for curable medicines in my life time.

Hi My Father is showing signs of Dementia. I was wondering how quickly does it take from showing signs and full blown talking strangely,not knowing where he is and who he should know. This has happened to my father over a couple of days is this normal or could something else be wrong with him? He stopped taking his medication without telling his doctor (I don,t know how long ago).

I am a 5o yrs old man. Since I have a history of cancer in my family members [my mother died of Gall bladder cancer at the age of 65 yrs and now my elder brother (55 Yrs) is having stomach cancer], I was advised endoscopy. The endoscopy report dated 7.10.10 suggests in the impression three things – (a) tongue like projection seen proximal to Z line in esophagus, Sample taken and sent for biopsy to rule out Barret’s Esophagus, (b) mild hiatal hernia, and (c) GERD. But I don’t have symptom of stomach pain/ acidity at present. Two years back (first time) and six months back (second time) I had acute stomach pain. USG done (in Feb’10, June’10 and Aug’10) indicated gall stone, for which I took ursodil 300 mg twice daily, along with pantocid, for 4 months, without any improvement. Now I have stopped medication for past one month and made up my mind for surgical removal of gall bladder. At present I am taking medication for cholesterol ( Atorva 10 mg). I don’t have any symptom of acidity or heart burning. Sometimes, occasionally, I have acidity after reach food. In 1998, I had hear burn and hiccup problems. After endoscopy, I was diagnosed as having distal esophagitis (there was multiple superficial ulcerations in the lower 1/3rd of esophagus. It was treated and I was OK within 1.5 months of medication. I am worried about the findings of the current endoscopy. Please guide me how to go about it. Can the tongue like projections be cured by medication? The local doctor has prescribed Nexpro tablet 40 mg once daily, which I have not started yet. I want to take a second opinion before starting the medicine for long period. The local doctor has also advised for repeat endoscopy after 3 months. I want to know whether, the tongue like projection in the esophagus can be cured by medication. Please guide me as to how I should handle my current health issues relating to my endoscopy report.

Hello, In November after visiting gym I ve got stuffed and 100% plugged nose, later developed chest caugh, pain, tiredness, thought I might have had pneumonia.. Took a lot of rest, lung teas, herbal tinctures, veget. and fruit juices etc. Lung Xray was OK. 2 weeks of antibiotics didn t clear it up. Up to now having smelly yellowish mucus coming out of my Bronchi s. Much worse after any kind of small walk, excercise. I am very concerned, it feels like infection in my chest that is not going away. Dr. ordered spirometry and metacholine tests, that suggested mild Asthma. Recommended cortison puffers only. I gave sample of yellow mucus - came out as inflamation only. What should I do next? So far I stayed off work last 3 months, taking care of myself, it seems getting slowly better until I go for a little walk when symptoms come back big time. What other test should be done to find out the real cause? I feel, that if it is not cleared, it will be getting worse over time. I used to do a lot of sports here as well as in Europe since childhood, until 3.5 months ago, and I am very worried about the future of this medical issue. Thank You, Radka

My 8 year old daughter is undergoing tests to diagnose asthma. it is well controlled. She has been complaining of chest discomfort. It started very sporadically at first (once per month), but now more regular. It happens when she`s just doing quiet things. She points to either her left or right side, it varies, located just under the breast, more towards the outer chest wall. She describes a pounding sensation and `swirling`....that`s her description. It doesn`t affect her breathing. Is it asthma related, or medication.....she`s on flovent and singulair. Thanks.

My husband complained of shortness of breath. He was sent to get a pulse oximetry on room air. Results showed 80% sat. Dr. was notified and he requested the test be repeated the next day with the same result. (Patient was already using supplmental oxygen.) I told Dr. that my husband seemed to be unconscious most of the time (I could not arouse him), when he was awake, he constantly dropped and spilled things, and he was just sick acting. Patient was sent home. Three days later, my husband was taken to the ER because he couldn t breathe and started having seizures. Dr. said his problems were sudden onset and could not have been diagnosed three days earlier when he was in the doctor s office. He spent 50 days in the hospital, about 40 of them on a ventilator. Could he have been diagnosed earlier than his ER visit based on his test results and symptoms?
