Hi hubby has 2nd heart replacement valve in oct 2011. Is on various meds etc. his right leg has been swelling from knee down, seems reddish in colour & toes are pretty much always blue. He has cervical & lumbar spondylosis, & also brain abscesses due to infective endocarditis. His leg is major league painful, ins & needles, squeezing, throbbing stabbing etc, has just been put on morphine for the pain. His other leg is starting to go the same way too. We have been told that its not arterial, related to brain/spine issues, we have been waiting 18 months now & keep getting told its nerve problems. Neuro takes forever & 1 doc told him put foot up take paracetamol! Warfarin is also 1 of the meds he's on & pregabalin. Any ideas???
I can recommend, horsechestnut gel. Read the instructions and with regular use your symptoms should ease consideraly. Also, I suggest you see a Homeopathic Practitioner who can prescribe loads of herbal remedies for your condition and ALL without side-effects. Most people don't agree with herbal medicine which, incidentally, has been around for thousands of years, but you have so much pain and discomfort now what have you got to lose?????????
My teeth have become discoloured because I have been on and off (more on than off) antibiotics for more than four months. Will they go back to normal? I don't have much to smile about due to being ill for this long but this is adding insult to injury
My motor neuron cells have not developed probably in my brain and is there a name for this
I had two very sore, what can only be described as cuts on either side of my inner labia, they took about a month to heal completley, I do shave but did not notice the 'injury' until a few days later, therefore I don't think I cut myself. The wounds wept and were really painful! They have gone now, but, I have 'scars'. Were they cuts?
Hmm are you sure that they were cuts? They sound like sores of some kind to me. Perhaps you should get tested just to make sure
Hey my name is Jes. Dr Dawn when you get the chance can you please answer my question. I just want to know how I got dyspraxia and does it affect the brain in any way
Hi I'm Kate, 17 and u currently noticed a small bump under Neath my skin on my vagina lip and I was worried what it could be....I have researched it and it's all said cancer :/ I didn't want it to scare me so I'm worried what I should do
I am a 15 year old female and back in feburary i was sent to my GP by the receptionist at my school as i was complaining of numbness in my neck, cheeck, lips, shoulder, back, arm, leg and foot which was all in the left side of my body which was ocurring every ten minutes or so. The staff at my school and my family thought i was having a STROKE. My GP thought i had CEREBRAL PALSY and after going to two diffrent hospitals the doctors and nurses couldnt dermine what it was. I had either an MRI scan or a CT scan on my brain to see if there was a tummer causing the numbness and i was told nothing had shown up on the results but my brain. The doctors could only tell me that it could have been something that may happen again or something which i will never experience again. It hasnt happened since but i do get a little sensation in my back AGAIN ON THE LEFT SIDE Which feels a little bit numb but the sensation goes away. I just wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this before and is it NORMAl at all?, as it baffles me everyday to think that my body satrted to Malfunction.
My Husband suffered a head injury 6yrs ago and since then he has found it difficult to get and keep an erection or even ejaculate, Our Doctor gave him a prescription for Viagra, but this takes the spontaneity away, I am 45 my husband is 51, we have been married 22yrs, is there any other help out there for us. thanks
I am very sorry to hear about your husbands injury. It is great to see though, you have sort a Doc for some advice on this situation. You can either sort another opinion to see if the head injury is the cause, (physical cause)? Or has his confidence, self esteem been effected (physiological). Has his moods changed since accident, (depression,) another cause. U want to know the cause, before the band-aid solutions.. If none of the above, perhaps spice up your love life,1. build the excitement thru out the day, anticipate,2. take Viagra and 3. turn up the foreplay and by the time his ready, you hopefully will be also. Change things around, is basically the message here, utilize visual aids, etc. Think outside the square or pattern routine, Being close to someone is a playtime for adults, so be playful in what it takes for you both,it is good for mind and spirit. Take Care Martin.
I'm a 22 year old male, within the past 2 days ice noticed my sperm is a brownish watery sperm, just recently gotten back into the game after a long time without having sex, could it just be blood from an injury? Or do you think I should find someone doctor
hi/ ime 45 and when i get aroused my penis hurts and feels like the blood is not flowing properly.it also has a indent on one side.i bent it hard when having sex and wonder if that is the problem.have i ripped the muscle or skin somehow.it feels like it is not acheiving its full erect state .is this a cause from the injury
Sounds Like early stage Peyronies disease, as what you descibe is exactly what I've been going through over the last 15 months. I was diagnosed by the specialist at my Local hospital 6 months ago. I'm 48 and was experiencing pain when errect....thought at first it was due to over active sex and do recall a point during where I did bend the shaft with my partner being on top. However the pain came and came every time I was errect. I thouhgt it best to visit my GP who reffered me to the local Hospital Urolgy Dept. Following examination I was then diagnosed. Now 12 months on the pain is less severe, but I now have a noticable bend and I also have an indent just like you describe. The indent is called 'waisting' so I'm told. I'm still struggling to date to accept the deformation, but am slowly coming round to accepting the problem. In my case to date having sex is still ok, arousal is still as quick as was before and with an understanding partner penetration is quite possible, sensation and ejaculation are exactly as normal. I hope this frank truth about my situation is helpful to you, and that your symtoms subside, at first I thought I was alone out there, apparently not.
