Hi

Thanks for posting your query.

First of all you need to revisit ER and tell them about your aspirin consumption. Aspirin is a blood thinner , excess dose can increase the chances of spontaneous bleeding along with hyperacidity. For that you need to be monitored and medicated.

Hi,

Crystal meth can affect all parts of the body. However, a delay in menses can be due to so many reasons, including drug use. Recent stress, recent use of medicines etc can also be implicated. Pregnancy is also a possibility. I would suggest that if your menses are further delayed, then it...

doctor1 MD

Hello,
Thanks for posting in HCM.
If your both pain symptoms have come after the fall, then they might be related with the injury because of the fall.
If the pain in base of spine is very excruciating then it will be advisable to get a x ray of the part to see for any fracture.

doctor1 MD

Hi,
Thanks for asking.
Based on your query, my opinion is as follows.
1. Yes, UTI if left untreated, the infection can travel up and affect the kidneys.
2. If your urine examination is negative and you do not have pus cells in urine, you do not have urinary tract infection. A Culture of urine...

Hello for the past year I have had tenable headaches... i was referred to a specialist and brain scan came back normal... i I haven t like I have had the flu and colds quite regular, and a strange copper taste in my mouth ect... also neck pain. I am now waiting for a neck scan. 5 weeks ago I had to go in to hospital I was shaking with high temp during the night. Headache,chest pain, burning in my lower back. And my throat was very sore. Also I couldn t move my neck. It YYYY@YYYY was a toss between a kidney infection, tonsillitis or a bacterial virus so I went home on antibiotics. Iv had 4 lots of different antibiotics since then and I m still getting pain in my right side pelvic area. As well as my constant headaches, neck pain and waterworks still have infection. Iv also now started having shooting pains up my spine and a numb sensation over my spleen area. My stomach is very upset and I feel sick a lot and the pains seem to be rising in to other areas. I m being sent for a scan and have a few weeks to wait and I m being treated for pelvic inflamatry disease. I m being to lose weight also. Any ideas what this may be?

I have been peeing excessively. I went to the immediate care and they thought I either had a bladder, uti, or kidney infection. They gave me a 5 day antibiotic and it is now day 3 and I am still feeling exhausted, bloated, peeing a lot, and getting headaches. What could this be??

doctor1 MD

Hi, 3days ago I suddenly had bad lower abdominal pains, and had to vomit twice while I was driving. I have bad cramping pain, nausea, chills, and now Iâ??m sleepy all the time. When I pee, it feels like an ever ending pain (ready to cry ever time). I told my doctor I may have a UTI, since I get them often and I know the symptoms. She told me I did and because I had a UTI in January she will send my urine to the lab and check if I have a kidney infection. I later notice I had blood in my urine (it was visible to the naked eye). I am also wounding since the symptoms are so similar, if I maybe pregnant. My last period was May 20. I took a test and it was negative. Everyone is saying itâ??s too early to tell. The Possible Kidney infection scares the hell out of me. I was in the Doctor office for 3 hour and had to pee 4 times. Iâ??m getting up about 3 times a night just to pee. Iâ??m on pins and needles thinking about. My doctor keep telling me â??Iâ??m not trying to scared you over and over againâ?? when she was telling me what it maybe and I was fine at that time. But now reading about kidney infections online got me worried. Should I go to the ER? What should I do?
