Hi. I am a 62 year old woman who had

Hi. I am a 62 year old woman who had non-hodgkins lymphoma and have some side-effects including neuropathy and very poor balance, requiring walking aids or a wheelchair. Last Thursday, I fell in the street and hit my head. My sight was blurry and needed the help of two nice women who stopped ( I was in the street.), and helped me up.

When I got home, I fell again, not knowing why. I hit my head again. I felt very weak and could not get up.

The paramedics urged me to go to the hospital but I decided not to go.

Afterwards, I was so tired and slept for about 14 hours. Today, I am very tired and am having trouble reading simple instructions. Any ideas?

Hi I m a 40 year old mother of 2 who has been battling hives/rash that started over 6 months ago. It first started in my inner thigh where I thought I was just allergic to my sanitary pad but it progressively gotten worse down my thighs, now my arm pit, upper/inner arm and forearm. I have been taking zyrtec but recently it has gotten so bad I read online that someone took Zantac for hives along with an antihistimine. H1 receptors (antihistamines treat H1 receptors) and H2 receptors (zantac treats H2 receptors). It has helped but I still sometime wake out of my sleep with the itch from hell on my arms and back. Once I start scratching, hives/red bumps appear I scratch. What should I do? In my 20 s, I had painful hives and took benedryl religiously and went to the doctor. The doc gave me meds and after taking them, never got another hive again until now....please help...any advice would be greatly appreciated. Also I have no idea what medicine he gave me 20 years ago that made them go away permanently!!!!

Hi, My mother(62 yrs) had cough which started in January and she would just take some strepsil or vicks tabs thinking it to be just a cold. It continued for 3 weeks and then we took her to a hospital where the treated for two weeks giving antibiotic and even then the cough didn t subside. In parallel we started giving her steam. She then started vomiting . We then consulted another doctor, who investigated her blood, stool and her chest. All he could find out was that the chest was full of cough/ mucus and he mentioned that the congestion in the chest might be the reason for the vomiting as he didn t not find anything abnormal with the blood and sputum test. During this period, she had lost about 5 Kgs. She almost stopped eating as she would vomit immediately. This process continued for 1.5 weeks and she started developing an imbalance problem. The only issue that could be the reason as suggested by the physician was a neuro problem. We then took her to another hospital and got her admitted there. Her blood was tested again and found that the volume of sodium and potassium has gone dangerously down in her blood and they started her treatment injecting sodium and potassium. She was also injected with Cerazone 1000 plus. Now they say, her sodium and potassium levels have normalized, but frequent fever(which averages 101 degree, temperature) is not subsiding. They would normally provide crocin or paracetamol tablets daily. Could you please suggest, what would be the root cause for all these and whether we should take her to another hospital ?
