I am 30 years old guy. Just married 1 years ago but not have any child. My question is that, from my childhood my right testis on upper part of body (not on proper place) whereas left testis on proper place but now a days slight pain. Almost 10 years ago, I had operated tried to bring Right testis slightly below along with hyerina repair as after operation time and often pain, swelling on testis now all most after 20 years back hyerina return back also doctor suggest me to throw out that testis as that valueless (no uses if that inside too which may damage left testis too) what to do? Shall I do operation and throw out testis or not or better to take medicine and wait tell one baby birth as doctor suggested me that if not operated quickly the right testis will damage left testis too. Right testis is not on proper place too till now as time and often pain and swelling. If you need report and others details of past and present i will submitted to you by scanning for that .

Hi, I am a 21 year old female, and I have a few questions about some symptoms I have been experiencing. Since I was about 13 I ve experienced joint pain and noticed I couldn t be as active or flexible as I was before, and in the past 3 years its gone downhill fast, now it s to the point where I constantly ache and my bones feel hot and radiate heat and pain, and my knees and ankles swell at the end of the day, I can t handle walking somewhere like at the mall or something, I get so tired so fast and hurt and then my knees start to hurt to where I can t really bear my weight, my knees lock up, I am no longer able to run long distances, its even hard for me to just chase my dog around, I can t do yoga anymore, the poses hurt my joints, in the morning its so hard for me to get out of bed, all my bones feel hot, and burn, and ache, and sore, and weak, and no matter how much I sleep it doesn t help, I can barely move in the morning, I hurt everywhere, even my muscles feel as if I had just worked out, and it hurts throughout the day, I m fatigued an hour into my day, I can barely handle being at work, I don t have a social life because it hurts too much to be up and out. In the last 5 monts or so I ve noticed my lymphnodes are swollen, I ve had nasuea every day, I ve lost alot of wright without trying, I don t have an appetite, I get sick whenever I eat, I have had diarrhea for the last 3 months straight, especially after eating, in the worst of it I can barely handle driving to work without having to relieve myself. I get headaches when I eat too. I feel slow, and weak, I get extreme headaches a few hours into my day that last anywhere from 5-24 hours and I can barely concentrate sometimes, all I can think about is all the pain. I ve started bruising really easy, especially on my legs, and now I ve noticed really tiny purple/pink bruises (at least I think they are, they don t hurt, or itch or anything) My knees, fingers, neck and back are always popping/cracking and my joints lock up alot. At night its hard to sleep, and as much as it hurts to stand/walk/sit, it doesn t really help to lay down either, I hurt all night, I m restless and my legs are restless, and my head makes my thoughts races because of the pain. My skin hurts sometimes like if my shirts touches it, or if my bf hugs me, or touches me, it feels like bruises all over even though there s nothing there. It s made it hard for us to be intimate, no position don t hurt... I ve also noticed my vision has gotten much worse and now blurry and I pee more often. Does anyone know what s wrong with me??? Also, a side question is, Since the age of 18, I started being intimate, I ve only had 2 serious relationships, one of which I am in now... Since a young age I ve never felt raging hormones, like horny? I never really have a urge for sex, when I do, its not very strong. I ve had little to no feeling down there, now my fiance and I are serious, I love him and attracted to him, but I can never get horny, or wet or anything, I can barely feel anything he does, or if we are doing things together, a fee months into our relationship, I got pregnant, and I miscarried, my body didn t pass the baby on its own and ppp have me the abortion pill, and I had an allergic reaction and went to the how, ended up passing the baby there, after that we didn t do anything for months, before when we had sex it didn t hurt, but now when he is romancing me, it hurts for him to do it, or to be deep. I still don t get excited or anything, and it just sucks for both of us. The only other thing I ve had wrong with down there is I get frequent yeast infections. Please help, I can t afford to go to the doctor but if this is something I can fix please help!! I m just scared...

Hell, Im 33 years old and have trace amounts of protein in my urine. I seen a urologist who said I had tiny polps in my bladder when looking in there with a scope. Could this be the cause of the protein? Im four weeks pregnant and afraid this will be mistaken for pre eclampsia as my pregnancy progresses. I also fear this protein could mean my kidneys can not tolerate a full term pregnancy. How normal is it to have trace amounts of protein in urine? Could this make my pregnancy a health risk to baby or myself?

Dear sir, My husband is Type 1 diabetic for the past 15 years and nephorotic for the past 3 years, he is 36 years old now. He is supposed to take ACE inhibitors for the proteinuria. But his body is reactive to ACE inhibitors. So he is not taking any of the drug to stop the worsening of the kidney function. His cretinine value keeps fluctutuating between 1.0 and 2.6. But his ckp in elevated. cholestrol and BP is high. In this past 3years after becoming a nephrotis he had loads of probems. He had fistulla and that was removed. He had bone TB on the rib. Then a small bit of rib was removed. Now he was alright. Every month we have been checking his cretinine value, hemoglobin level and everything. Things are going well. But suddenly i observed a bulge on his right chest which looks like a fibroid, but not yet confirmed we haven t consulted the doctor which we will do in couple of days. So what can we do for this, will that dissolve by taking medicines or only through sugery. If that is possible through surgery can we go for laser? Without taking ACE inhibitors how long his kidney work or Is there any other medicines or any other way to stop worsening his kidney condition, Please suggest me............. Why his cpk is always high? We checked with the neurologist, we took relevant test, The doctor said that he does not have any neurological problems......Doctor says his decease does not follow the pattern of normal diabetic nephropathy because, his creatinine values goes suddenly up like 3 and with in two months setteled down to 1.2 like that...... Is it associated with any other decease....... kindly tell me? If you need any medical records of him I am ready to send kindly guide us please................
