Hello, for over a decade now I have been dealing with daily headaches that start at the left side of my neck and travel to three different locations. One branch seems to lead to my ear, causing excruciating ear pain but apparently my ear is fine, it also causes me tenderness in my lymph node on that side. The second branch flows over my ear, again on the left and ends at my left temple causing a migraine like headache and finally the third branch travels across the top of my head and settles right in the center of my left eye making my eye extremely sensitive to even the smallest bit of light like a blinking light on a DVD player. Unlike most migraines I rarely get the nausea and noise is not a mitigating factor unless it he is excessively loud like a dirt bike. When I have the worst of these headaches I have to lie perfectly immobile in bed and don t dare lift my head off the pillow because the weight of my head on my neck triggers the pain to new heights. I have oxygen at home and it does provide some relief and I have notices that when I light a cigarette the headache gets worse. I live in fear of having to urinate with one of these headaches because when I do I can almost time it that within 4 minutes my head will explode in pain. I know these symptoms seem unrelated but this is what I have been dealing with for quite some time now without any relief. These headaches have been painfull enough at times that I have considered suicide. Please help me if you can. Sincerely, Claude Hebert

Recently diagnosed with possible subclinical hypothyroidism. Have been taking levothyroxine for approx. 1 month. Have had ringing, dull ache, fullness in right ear and swelling and slight pain in neck for about the same amount of time. Went back to doctor and he said I may have eustachian tube dysfunction brought on by upper respiratory tract infection but have had no symptoms of an upper respiratory tract infection. Wondering if this could be thyroid related or something more serious. Can t tell if the swelling is a lymph node or not. Seems to be on both side but a little more on the right. 34 year-old female 5 feet 5 inches 132 lbs

I know someone who said he went through 4 - 6 weeks of both radiation and chemotherapy for rectal cancer. He had surgery and again is having either radiation or chemotherapy, yet, he didn't lose any hair. (he was balding before he started treatments) How rare is it not to have significant hair loss while undergoing such brutal treatments?

My mom has lung cancer and she is 46 years old.
Here's her medical history:
Left breast cancer (03.11.09); T1c(1-2cm) N0 (0/4nodes) Grade II IDC ER+/PR=HER2 (2+on IHC). She completed 6 cycles of adjuvant FAC chemotherapy followed by 60Gy/30fr adjuvant RT completed 05.0810. She was also started on Tamoxifen.
She developed rectal bleeding in February 2010. Colonoscopy in July 2010 showed a stenosing tumour extending from 10-18cm from the anal verge. Biopsy revealed a moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma and pelvic MRI suggested this to be a T3N2 lesion. She was started on Oxaliplatin, capecitabine , bevacizumab. She was admitted in the hospital due to complains of weakness, hypotension and bloody diarrhoea. After it was treated she underwent surgery and palliative colostomy without resection of the colonic primary because it was very adherent to the intra abdominal structures and the surgeon did not want to risk major exploration and dissection in the presence of peritonitis secondary to a colonic perforation. After post operative recovery she had been suffering from peripheral neuropathy and still is. However, she has found relief with TENS.
PET/CT scan showed bilateral pleural based metastatic lesions and a possible left lower lung parenchymal deposit also. the primary lesion did not show increased FDG uptake, possibly secondary to having its blood supply cut off by the surgeon. She was also diagnosed with multiple filling defects in the right lung on CTPA and received therapeutic low molecular weight heparin. She has a clot in her lung vessel for which she gets clexane injections everyday. She had pleural effusions aspirated three times since the start of May 2011, from the right and left side. She got a Groshong central venous catheter and started her chemotherapy (Ondansetron, dexamethasone, atropine, irinotecan). She completed 1 cycle of her chemotherapy. The chemotherapy was discontinued because of a severe infection due to the Groshong line. She was started on antibiotics but the catheter was ultimately removed. After the infection settled and she recovered a little of her strength, she was misdiagnosed with passive pneumonia and was given Tazocin. It was just recently diagnosed as loculated pleural effusion. She also has a collapsed lower right lobe. She had the effusions aspirated 3 times, one time every day.The lobe has shown improvement. She is now complaining of chest pain, pressure on the chest and extreme shortness of breath. She has been on oxygen for about a week now and finds it difficult and tiring to breath without the oxygen mask. The lung saturation however is within acceptable parameters so i dont understand why she finds it difficult to breath without the oxygen. It has gotten so bad that she's unable to talk properly and can hardly complete a sentence without taking breaks. Yesterday night her chest pain got so bad they had to give her morphine which took quite a lot of time to wear off and she felt extremely lethargic. She is complaining of palpitations and says her heart skips beats(for which she was given Metoprolol Tartrate) but no significant improvement is noted. But the doctor says her heart is doing fine, so im really confused. She also feels a tingling sensation around her lips, head and limbs quite frequently and keeps getting these tiny jolts every now and then. What do you suggest we do about that? Overall, she feels extremely weak and is drowsy and lethargic most of the times and im getting really worried because she is showing no signs of improvement. Should she start getting her chemotherapy even though she's really weak? and can you please tell me what to do about her breathing and lethargy?
