I have had RA for nearly all my 67 years

I have had RA for nearly all my 67 years and Sjogrens for 30years. I have been told that I have a moderately prolapsed bladder and bowel-? My question is that at any time I can feel painful vaginal lower abdomen pressure, sometimes along with (or does it result in) a UTI. When this happens, it is painful to pee with frequent urgent needing to go. I have tried to approach this with restricting lifting standing walking for lengthy periods of time but nothing really changes the outcome or is a consistent situation with this as a predictable end result. I don't do well with ibuprofen but desperate for relief I tried it and it helps. I've seen my physician more than once (its hard to get an appointment while experiencing this. With this I have had pain in the kidney area usually most painful in the morning. This does wake me up at night. It restricts my activities and keeps me homebound and unable to do everyday tasks like housekeeping. In otherwise I really need to find the cause so I can have a treatment plan. CAN this be caused by my RA? after being checked for prolapse as told here not being that bad I /it was shrugged off and feel I need to try a different approach that would prompt some exploration for the c a use

What are the chances that my nearly 3 year old daughter will lose her hair? (she has low risk neuroblastoma) and may need chemo. She has had surgery to remove the tumour, but one of her follow-up urine tests showed that the level of catecholamines was raised so they brought forward her next MRI, which we get the results for this week. Basically if the scan shows anything, even if it s not growing they will give her chemo, they said low dose. I want to know what the chances of her losing her hair are? I know that will be the least of our worries if she has to have chemo, but i want to be prepared for this if it is likely to happen.

About a month ago, my husband came down with the flu. He was sick for a few days. He still isnt completely healed. He wakes up in the morning gagging and coughing. I guess it is his sinuses draining. He told me a couple of days ago, that he was having a funny feeling in his chest, like a fluttery feeling kinda beneath his heart. It doesnt hurt. He says it has been going on for about a week. He says it is not constant, just after he eats and when he lies down. I made him go to the convenient care yesterday and they said he needed to go in to have a checkup done. He has an appt tomorrow afternoon. Does anyone know what this could be or has anyone ever experienced this. He is 45 years old. I know we will hopefully get some answers tomorrow, but the waiting is killing me.
