My daughter just found out she is pregnant. She is about 6 weeks or 7 weeks. The month before she smoked crack cocaine 3 times in one month. She enhaled twice only each time. She use to smoke it a lot but quit 2 years ago. She is scared beyond belief that her baby inside is all ready affected from last months use. If she never does it again will that one month be enough to affect her baby?

For the last few months Ive been having symptoms of GERD , thats what my PCP is treating me for. I told him I have pain on the left side just above my clavicle in the hollow area. He felt to see if I have any swollen lymph nodes and says I dont. Now the pain has spread to my right side, and feels like it is in my collarbone towards my sternum and Im having bad pain in my chest just below collarbone on right side. At its peak I feel bubbling. Any idea what this could be? It is not relieved with any pain killers.

I am a Kaiser Permanente member and have a nice GP who has prescribed gabapentin and a low dose of Norco for my chronic sciatic pain (since 2008). Recently I asked for a TENS unit to see if I can manage the pain with any meds because I think even mild pain meds probably decrease libido. Is that generally the case?
