Hi, for more than 2 weeks I have had horrible headaches and have felt nauseous 24/7. I m always dizzy and tired, having no energy to do anything. I also wake up every single night at least twice to have to pee, and it s always urgent. Just recently, the nausea started getting worse after I eat. Also, yesterday I started having a tough time breathing and today I have sharp stabbing pains in the mid part of my chest along with a painful coughing. I m only 19, weigh 120, and am 5 6. I went to the doctor last week and they took some blood work but haven t called back for the results yet. I do have a history of cancer though. I had a wilms tumor on my kidney when I was 18 months old and had to have my right kidney removed. I m not sure if that has anything to do with it though. I just wanna know whats exactly wrong cause I m tired of laying in bed because I m feeling horrible. Sometimes the nausea and dizziness is so bad that I can t even drive. Please help

Hi I have they believe a fatty tumor on or under my arm, I went an got a MRI an it showed the tumor to be bigger then I thought an it starts under the skin an goes around the muscle an ends up under the muscle to the bone now within the the 6 months I had fell outside but one time that stands out is that when I did fall I was holding on to my truck door an ended up slipping under the truck but the arm save me from going under in the meantime I tore a few muscles so my arm is really been hurting that s why I ended up going to my dr. Now sent me to another an I have a app. In a few days, my question is this tumors has been there at least 6 yrs that s when I found it so I am sure it s been there longer I used to take the patch birth control an where the tumor was is where I used to put the patch each time, do you think it could of caused the tumor? Thanks for your time Kathy

My 2 year old Grandaughter who is a triplet has had white spots on the back of her throat, excessive drooling, very foul odor and her speech doesn t sound clear. We took her to the Dr and they did do a throat culture for strep but it came back today and it was negative. Today she has no energy and just lays on the floor or couch but no fever. She has an appointment to go back to the Dr today to be seen. I m really concerned since she was diagnosed with a WILMS tumor a year ago yesterday and went through a very extensive surgery and also radiation and chemo. She has been in remission since Jan. but I m just very concerned! Thank you for any input you can give!
