I ve had a headache on and off for the past week or two. I m taking ibuprofen 2 to 3 three times a day to decrease the pain. The headaches range from a dull ache to a shooting pain. Today the simple act of coughing or sneezing hurt my head. I ve also had a stuffy and runny nose on and off ever since I got a bad cold in November of 2014. Two days ago a neck stiffness set in. I thought I had slept wrong but this afternoon I ve noticed an slow increase in neck stiffness, heat seems to be helping a little. I am a smoker, just turned 35, and have been on birth control for about 3 years which has caused my periods to stop completely in that time. I was very good about taking a daily low dose asprin but have not been so regular in the past many months. Between work and home I ve had a bit of stress over the last month due to increased workload (which will cease soon) and many major decisions regarding our children s education and taking on new financial obligations (enrollment in private school one child and buying a car for our other). I think this may just be a tension headache and don t want to jump to conclusions that its something bigger. Thoughts?

I m 60 yrs. old, 178lbs and pretty good health. The following symtoms I have a tickle in my throat which leads to a cough watery eyes with pressure, runny nose, clearing throat and sometimes hoarseness. I drink water and eventually stops. I have been to ENT doctor.(which recommended having an endoscopy). I have had an endoscopy, which the Dr. mentioned Barett s esophagus (no cancer). I m on Nexium 40 mg since March but then started feeling a lump in my throat everytime I swallowed. I went back to ENT Dr. (no lump to be seen) but said the symtoms I mentioned sound like LPR Reflux (given a booklet) and yes I have about (4) symtoms. Now I m also on Zantac 150 MG. I don t see much change with all the medicine. I had/have NO SYMTOMS at all of heartburn, acid coming up, burping etc. right from the beginning just a chronic cough which lead to the ENT Dr. which lead to so on so forth. I m leary of staying on any medication for a long period of time, especially PPI s. What possibly do you think my condition may be and what is your thought about the medications. Thank you Patrice

Hi, Ny daughter Paige is now 4, and has had a massive splenomegaly since birth that doctors, paediatricins cannot find a cause for. She had a chronic cough for 3 years, and mucous poos which a natural therapist has succesfullt treated as leaky bowel . She has recently had chronic bleeding nose and her cuts and sores are healing slowly and looking inflamed. her spleen is 21cm and she has occasional hepatomegaly. She has been tested for everything including parasitic involvement. All her siblings are healthy. serology shows that she has had both CMV and Epstein-barr, but the haemotologist says that it is definately not the cause of the biggest spleen he has seen . Ultrasounds show an engorged spleen with no fibroid tissue and no portal flow froblems. She has always had pancytopenia, but lately her white cells have been much lower than usual. She has no autoimmune disorders, thalassemia, TB, Kala azar, or any of the thousand things tested for. She needs help. Thankyou for your time
