It is on going. sometimes it will be faded and then sometimes it is very dark. I do not recall bumping into anything or hitting my leg. It is very very itchy sometimes, I will scratch it do death but get no relief until i take my mind off it. I also get bruises on my right leg but not as frequent. I also keep getting heart palpitations. I have an ED also. I am getting help in that area but I dont know wether my symptoms are enough for a trip to the doctor/ ER. please help. Thank you!

Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
You are having Jock Itch or Tinea Cruris or Fungal Infection of Groin. You should stop scratching as it will lead to severe Bruise. Use a Glove while scratching. Get your self examined by a Physician to rule out Jock itch. You may want to apply anti fungal creams locally as Directed by your Doctor and go for regular follow up.
Do not worry as it is a easily treatable condition.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.

Recently I noticed when I sleep on my left side , I can feel the pumping of my heart. The rate doesn t shift unless I get anxious but is a shift in the heart when you change your position to the left side and what does this mean. I had an echo cardiogram a year ago and everything was fine.

I have had heart palpitations for many years. Now they are worse and alot more frequent. I had an echo done came back normal. Other symptoms I have had or having are chest pain went from left side to right side numbness in left arm after an episode I get a splitting headache upper back between shoulder blade pain. Dizziness at times and blurred visiom. Is this all part of my anxiety attacks or do I need to have my heart checked more to check for clogged arteries plaque buildup etc..??

Had surgery on right long finger @ dip joint to reduce osteoarthritis pain. Earlier procedure on left index finger was successful (bones fused). This time bones did not fuse so a bone graft was done. Follow-up x-ray showed bone was a casualty of infection. At no time was the infection visible or painful. Third procedure was done to take out pins, debride area, and take samples for culturing. Results showed staph (not mrsa) infection and fungal infection. Immediately went on fuconazole by mouth and cefazolin infusion. Infections are gone but so is the pin that supported tip of finger. Tip of finger is unstable and requires a splint most of the time. On three-week hiatus. What are options aside from amputation?

I am having blurred vision, which sometimes starts to tunnel with outlining streaks. I have headaches in the back of my lower head, I feel as though I just got off a marry-go-round, or doped up, or drunk. Then there is a feeling of a low voltage shock in my head and everything moves side ways. I also and have a cough that is productive and a discharge with intense itching. The palm of my hands and finger itch and I claw them raw during the night. I think the all of these are intermingled some how. Is there a fungal infection that would cause all of these? Or is my head problems something else completely? I am really tired of feeling dizzy. I also seem to be sleeping more--but it seems the only way to couping with the being dizzy. Thanks!!!
