If you need help while your in the hospital. ALWAYS ask for a hospital social worker. They are there to help you. Most hospitals have financial assistance programs. They can reduce your medical fees 50 percent more or less. If you get a doctors medical fee. Always call the doctors office & tell them I can not make a full payment, but willing to make small payments. I am actually paying off a radiology bill from 2 months ago. I agreed $10.00 a month. I know its not fun being poor or without insurance.

I was stung by a bee three weeks ago on the upper back part of my heal. My lower leg was swollen and the muscle from my heal to my lower calf was warm to the touch and painful. Now the pain has moved to my upper calf muscle just under my knee. Could I have a blood clot from the bee sting? How should I treat it?

i have routine blood work done yearly and last month my GFR came back 59, HCT 31, nml w/ cr 1.0. i have markers for sjogrens, not clinical diagnosis, chol 203, hdl 54, ldl 110 triglycerides 88 and BP is 110/70 s ballpark average, microprotein 44 in urine from 4 last sept. i have no other healthproblems. repeat GFR 58, HCT 37 bun/cr same, chol level same but CO2 20, and microprotein is down to 8 in urine (cut protein down to minimum..i was big protein eater). i am worried about GFR. only thing i can think of that could have caused this is taking ibuprofen/benadryl during a 3 week period when i broke my rib prior to having labs drawn..and i took the ibuprofen regularly. i drink lots of water always. also since feb, i have increased exercise phenomenally. is it possible to turn this GFR around? and how quick does kidney failure take? am i on a downward spiral? i have next appt w/ Primary doc in 1 month, am repeating labs til then. what can i do that i am not doing to retard/repair circumstances? is it permanent damage?..
