dear miss willams,
do you have any pain in the spine or on flexing your neck. it would be better to get a physical examination and an MRI of whole spine done to be properly evaluated.

I m a 57 year old female. My main illness is asthma/allergies which for the most part are under control. As I sit here, I have aching throbbing pain up and down my right leg, particularly in the thigh and to the right of my knee and down. It s taking over my life. I ve been limping on my right side for over a week now. I ve had restless leg syndrome for several years. There is a difference between that and what I m currently feeling.

My boyfriend's mother was diagnosed with breast cancer a month ago. She just had a mastectomy a few days ago. When she woke up from anesthesia, her heart was racing, she had a severe fever, her blood pressure was sky high, and she didn't remember anyone. What does this mean?

my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer 4 years ago. she had had a standard mammogram which picked it up. 3 years previous she had a clear mammogram. she couldnt feel any lumps herself, but after the mammogram she was called in to say there was something wrong. she was called in for a biopsy. at the biopsy she was told, that she had at least two tumours in same breast and when they pulled the fluid off that she had cancer. they didnt even need to send it off anywhere to tell her this. she then went for a mastectomy,and they removed her breast and lymph nodes. she was told 22 lymph nodes were cancerous (i dont know how many she had, if any, over and above the 22 ) and it was aggressive. she had chemo then radiation followed by a daily pill (eg. armidex but im unsure). i cant establish the full facts but when she does have a check up they don't take any blood test. she had a premliminay bone scan when diagnosed and was told it wasnt in her bones. she doesnt say much about it,but i have noticed that recently she has left the room feeling sick and my son has told me that she has also been clutching her throat. i really dont have a clue what the prognosis is and am obviously worried

For quite a few years I have had thick, crusty skin on my upper lip. At first it was just a little, but now it is about 1/2 an inch across and is getting below my upper lip line. I have tried several antifungal creams, lotramin, hydro cortisone, etc. I have sanded it with a clean fingernail file and have to use tweezers almost every day to get loose skin off. Any thoughts? I am 66, weigh 175. Breast cancer on each side is my only serious health history. They were each found in a yearly mamagram and were very small. I had a mastectomy with reconstruction both times. The first time, almost 14 years ago, I took Tamoxifin for 5 years. The second time, about 9 years ago, no treatment was recommended.

I have CIDP. I am currently in remission and have regained the ability to lift my feet but still have much numbness in my feet and hands along with a tuning fork sensation. I also have a difficulty with bowel issues, extreme pain, taking an hour or longer to finish, going from a constipated stool to watery diarhea, and I am in intense, gut wrenching pain. I have been in the hosp two time, each time ten days, for passing blood. First time it was ischemic colitis, second time undiagnosed but each time I ended up with nothing passing but blood. I have had an endo and colonoscopy. Nothing showing and I have had extensive testing as I also presented with B12 deficiency, unknown why. None of the regular possibilities, not a vegan nor was it due to celiac or gastro issues, etc. My neuro ran extensive testing. I am stumped, my gastro Dr. is just like oh well and meanwhile, I am in more pain than I can relay. This happens an average of twice a week and more often than not I vomit at the same time, so I have a hard time maintaining weight. History, I lost both breasts to cancer 2004, it was very early stage but aggressive and they did mastectomies for the grade and family history. Also, I was misdx with MS for four years and gave myself shots of betaseron. When the CIDP started really getting bad, it went fairly quickly. Thx.
