hello
welcome to health care magic.
no these are not signs of labour. when you go into labour you will have pains starting from your back and radiating forwards towards your inner thighs. these pains will be at 15 to 20 min intervals initially , they will then occur more frquenlty at shorter intervals lasting for longer time. also you have some discharge(thick sticky discharge, slightly blood stained)

I want to know the possible signs of preterm labour. I ve had Braxton hicks since 28 weeks, I am 33 now. I leaked clear fluid twice, it was enough to soak my underwear and my pants. I went to the doctor about it and she told me I may be in preterm labour, sent me home and I am to keep an eye on it. I went in again today for leaking and for mentrual like cramps in my pelvic that don t tighten my stomach, so aren t the Braxton hicks I been having. I felt pukey and like I had diarrhea. It s been about 6 hours since I went in as she was rushed because of another high risk pregnancy I feel she didn t listen to what I had told her. Especially since she told me it was my plug, when it would have been a color. What I leaked was completely clear with a very small amount of what looked like the discharge. I know the difference between discharge and water. I leaked a water like fluid that had a bit of a belly feel to it. I keep cramping, I feel over heated, I had a lot of sugar in my Urine, and I don t want to risk not catching preterm labour early

My friend most likely has a stomach ulcer. Symptoms are nausea, vomiting, general feeling of weakness/fatigue/malaise, atrocious gas, black stool. He has not gone to a doctor because he doesn t have health insurance. I have 10 penicillin vk 100mg. Will taking this help? I m seeing that amoxycillin is usually indicated for stomach ulcer. What can be done if he can t go to the doctor?

My neighbor s 4 yr old has circular patches (5 +) in multiple places, legs, feet etc. I originally thought it looked like ringworm except for the small excoriations in the center of each and bruising under each. She went to an urgent care and was told coxsackie virus. No hx of fever or malaise. Can coxsackie do this?
