See your doctor without delay - painful lump and throbbing in any vein is a major symptom of deep vein thrombosis - this is life threatening and should not be overlooked. Tell your doctor you want more tests and don't take no for an answer! I don't mean to scare you though - it could be something else much less sinister,but either way - you need to know!!

Hello,
I am a 23 year old female with a comprimised immune system. I have had a UTI for a couple of weeks that is almost completely gone now but I still have the lower abdominal pain and back pain. My most recent partner has told me that i need to be tested for chlymydia as he may have it (because of WBC's found in his urine) and thinks he has contracted it from me and is waiting for his results. I'm pretty sure I dont have it but I will be getting tested as well. My main question is is massage contraindicated if I do have it as I am currently in massage school and we're doing deep tissue? Also what are the chanes of his WBC's being from a UTI since I have one? Thank you.

Recently took my 10 week old daughter (who is a twin) to doctor for routine check up. Doctor did not say anything about her head until I asked. her head is misshapen and she looks to one side, which from what i looked up is infant torticollis. Doctor did not diagnose her with this, but said to exercise her neck muscles. Shouldn't this have been diagnosed as infant torticollis? Will it go away without physical therepy or use of a helmet? Anyone's infant had this and fixed it without physical therapy?
