Hello, I am going to see my family doctor tomorrow, and any ideas you may have are welcome. I had a migraine which started on Wednesday and went on through Thursday, including a fever which spiked up and down. Two Frova along with aspirin and acetaminophen is what I took over that timeframe. Even after the headache went, the fever stayed through the end of Friday, so I continued with small doses of acetaminophen and aspirin. Saturday (yesterday) I was without the fever, but very swollen and all my joints hurt. This morning (Sunday) I thought I felt fine. Then I looked in the mirror and discovered that I am covered in a rash from head to toe. Just blotches, not risen. Feels a little scratchy, but the rash isn`t overtly itchy. Any ideas ....

I DO NOT have pain/buring/stinging voiding but I am voiding large amounts frequently at times. The other day I swear I voided 500mLs every 30 minutes at least. I am getting a pressure in my pelvic region at times that is painful and makes me feel the need to empty my bladder but I dont have anything in my bladder to void. Trying seems to help relieve some of the discomfort. Sometimes when I get this pain which had a rapid onset I then get rapid abodominal bloating that goes away shortly after, anywhere up to an hour. I am getting pelvic region pain after sex of late and had 10/10 pain in my back on the left hand side probably between the top of my hip and bottom of my rib cage a few days ago that was relieved with ibuprofen and paracetamol. Urinalysis showed SG 1.025, pH 5.5 and Leucocytes small. What might be causing this?

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here...
my baby is 17 months old, she has been constipated on off for 2 months, drs have prescribed mild laxitive to be added to her drinks 3 times day. She continues to pass stool after 5 days, very hard foul smell and very painful for her. She has continuous high temperature off and on for 10 days, she is currently being treated for an upper respiratory viral infection with infected tonsils. She has been on fluids for last 3 days (as she cannot eat cos of her sore throat) and has not passed any stool nor diarrhoea considering she has started a course of amoxycillin today, we control the fever with calpol (paracetamol) and nurofen.
Could constipation have anything to do with the high fever she has been having for the pass 10 days?

my son a while back complained of pain in his back passage and testicle. this pain seemed to spread down to his legs and ankles. he was taken to the doctor and nothing was found to be wrong. Sometimes he is in tears with the pain and he has seen a doctor again, still no explanation. I just dont know what to do, he has been taking paracetamol and iboprofin for weeks now and he still has aching in his legs plus now he says they are freezing cold, even with a hot water bottle. Another ongoing issue is that he seems to be permenently ill with feeling sick and dizzy and very tired. i dread taking him to the doctors as we never get anywhere!
