Hi, I am currently in US and having fever since last two weeks. I have taken Tylenon, Motrin but they did not help. I have also taken amoxicilin but that didn t help either. My blood test was negative for influenza, malaria. My urine and flu tests were normal. Doctor here has now recommended me for blood culture test which will take 4-5 days. My fever is very high and I am feeling very helpless. I used to visit Dr Amitabh whenever I fell sick. Please advise me what to do. I shall be very grateful to you.

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here...Dear Dr.I am 20yrs old and underwent a surgical abortion 2weeks ago. Ive experienced scanty bleeding and some backaches and cramps.What was worrying me though is slight discomfort(mild pain and burning) during urination and great urgency whenever i want to go.since i had been urinating a lot during my pregnancy(6 weeks) i drank lots of fluids to clear the urethra.the pain went away but the urgency did not.today morning i woke up and realised i had wet my bed.This has never happened before.I thought that perhaps i might have a UTI but i had taken antibiotics 4weeks ago(Zinat) and fluconazole for a candid infection.Ihave had a UTI before but i have none of the symptoms now except the urgency.What might be causing the loss of bladder control?Could the pregnancy and abortion be a cause?Please help.

Hi I was at work when I expelled a white ish quarter sized piece of tissue from my vagina, followed by a small amount of blood and brown textured discharge. I have recently stopped using birth control for the first time in five years and I took a generic for diflucan pill for my yeast infection I currently have last night. I have been very careful and using protection. I will say I did have some pain in my right ovary area yesterday for a little bit. Any ideas what this might be?
