Hello,

As there is swelling and diagnosed with cat scratch fever I will advise continuing the antibiotics under the guidelines of the physician. As the infection within the body will take some time to get over with. Also doing a blood and urine test is important as any misunderstood clinical signs and symptoms may not allow the proper treatment line to follow.

For the swelling, I will advise to use icing and do simple forearm exercises which will help the muscles to be stronger to not allow any swelling to occur.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Jay Indravadan Patel, Physical Therapist or Physiotherapist

my left tear duct is blocked and my Dr. prescribed eye drops Azatyte a few months ago and I had some left over so I used it. I had an immediate burning sensation in the tear duct, and sinuses. It is now very swollen and painful (pressure and throbbing) so I took some Hydrocodene that we had from a previous dental prescription. Then I remembered the Dr. had prescribed amoxicillin with the eye drops so I had some in the house and I took one of those. The result is that I m nauseas, my eye is still tearing and the whole left side of my face is swollen. I can breathe without any problem and would rather wait until morning to see my Dr. Is it safe to wait or should I go to the ER I

I have been on clonazepam for 17 years. My doctor put me on .05mg along with Zoloft. For many years I saw him often for a period of no more than 25 minutes per session. Than he would write the script. He did tell me it was highly addictive yet still wrote me the script. In Feb 2013 I took on a new job and asked for him to give me a better strength 1mg (he said yes) I let him go after I said I believed I need to be on ssdi and he said he did not feel I was disabled. I asked than why have you been working with me for 17 years. in 2012 I started getting problems, spleen issues and my left eye twitching and closing (slight blindness) I went to a neurologist and they said they could not find anything wrong with me. I said that fact that my eye is twitching in front of you and is swollen and at half mass is not enough? So On Jan 10th I got an edoscopy and my gastrologist boosted my dose to 2mg 2times a day. Now I find out that this pill has very serious side effects. Can my eye problem and spleen issues be related and is 17 years on this pill normal or simply careless behavior by a doctor.

My daughter is 3 years old. We are from Nepal but have been living in Australia for last one year. She has been getting high fever which gets up to 40 C every 15 to 21 days. It was more severe in winter months here, she has had lots of check ups but nothing has been diagnosed. Many times she has had tonisilitis during fever. Now she is in fever but this time her tonsils are not swollen. Fever started from Wednesday 12 January and it is still high. I took her to GP yesterday and was told to wait before medication is given. She has been on penicillian for treating tonsilitis for last every fever. This may be viral fever so we are waiting. How long viral fever can be and what should be done if fever gets very high?
