Dear user
swelling and redness following injury is quiet common and it is due to collection of blood in the layers of the eyelids. The condition is called as Black Eyes or Ecchymosis of eyes.
The condition resolves on its own over a period of 4 weeks on absorbtion of the collected blood in the...

HI
Well come to HCM
The lesion that you have could be due to the shoe bite, if this is so then you have to take care for infection, keep the area clean, for the pain and inflammation you can try Tab Ibuprofen if and only if this is needed else this would come around on its own, take care.

Three months ago i fell on my side directly on the edge of bathtub. I have had constant pain and pressure feeling since the fall that has diminished in intensity. Seen my doc a few days after the fall and he was not concerned. Because the pain was intense, i went to clinic and got xrays that did not show any fractures, but i did get pain med's. Two weeks ago my doc did routine blood work on me and revealed an infection, thyroid anomaly and very low testosterone. I believe this is caused by the injury. Am i wrong?

My name is Jennifer. I am a 41 year old female, 5 9 , 125 LB. Over the past 10 years I have had symptoms of arrhythmias , chest pain, breathing problems (inability to breath deeply), coughing and severe hoarseness usually coinciding with the other problems. It seems to be getting slowly worse as I get older. I sleep sitting up. If I lay down I risk waking up with significant chest pain, choking and arrhythmias. I tried to get a diagnosis in my 30 s but no one found the source of my problem before I lost my insurance and stopped pursuing it. I recently went to a chiropractor and had x-rays taken. There is significant compression and misalignment between C3 and C4. There is also some arthritic changes between these vertebrae. I used to break horses when I was in my early 20 s and at one point directly fell on my head and was knocked out. I assume that is what caused this particular injury. My question is could this injury be causing the arrhythmias, chest pain, breathing problems and hoarseness? I know you can t answer with certainty I am just curious if it is a possibility. Thank you for your time, Jennifer

hello - I'm 47 and tend to get upper respiratory issues frequently (maybe 3 or 4 times a year) and they last for several weeks. Do the math and I'm sick for about 3 months every year. Other than that, I have no issues. Recent bloodwork doesn't show anything but I do have a deviated septum and when I'm sick, it's very hard to breathe. Any idea if that could be a factor into why I'm frequently sick?
