    im currently unwell,ive had previous drastic surgery on my abdomen&bowel&have many health problems.During the last 10 days i have lost a stone in weight too.It started when i had some pain in my hip&stomache,fever which went with paracetamol&seemed to last for only a day.The pain intensified with lots of gas,which then "settled" into a very tender abdomen which was very much like the feeling of just having had surgery eg tender tummy,difficulty in coughing,laughing&walking properly upright&a stiffness in walking/moving.As the days progressed(3rd day)i developed diarrhea which i still have,This is day 6 now but i feel im getting abit better generally.Im scared its cancer but know i wont even get a drs appointment for at least 3wks!Should i go to hospital or just wait until i can see a dr?I dont think ive im properly hydrated either.Thank you in anticipation of any help.

    i had undergone appendectomy 8 yrs ago. my appendix had burst at that time, but the surgery went OK. but about year ago, i started experiencing constipation and diarrhoea and i had have a terrible pain right at the surgery scar that refuses to go away. it increases while walking or running at a stretch, coughing, sneezing, laughing, stretching my hands upwards. I also get it when sat down and i also suffer from frequent bloating of stomach with no proper reason. i also have difficulty passing gas as it increases the pain at the scar region. i had undergone ultrasound, abdominal x-ray, endoscopy with video and colonoscopy but they revealed nothing. but a tenderness remains at the scar region and i feel as if something just under the skin has got a bit inflamed or that something is wrong. i have this pain most of the time and it feels as if i have pulled a muscle or ligament. what is wrong with me?

    Hi Michelle, I have several sugestions: -See a neurologist to see if you have any type of muscular dystrophy. -Have a very detailed MRI Scan of your spine, especially your lumbar spine -Blood tests to check for VDRL and HTLU 1, Hepatitis B and C (I think you could have these done at an STD Clinic) -Lumbar puncture to detect infection, including herpes -Have you had genital herpes? This could be the cause -Have you had an antibiotic from the Quinolone family? It can cause this type of problem as a side effect, for a long time -Did you have the Swine-flu jab (the Pandemix one available in 2009) about 3 to 4 weeks before your problem started? I hope you find all this information helpful

    I have had mri scans full blood count everything come back fine. It all started a couple of months after i had the contracepive depo injection and i think this has caused some problem with my muscles but no one knows what i have i have

    I have had hard skin on the sloes of both feet for at least 10 years. I have cut them down and dug them used ointmebts like cuplex gel which just made them worst. They are so pain full that I'm beside myself of what to do next. They have developed into hard corns which feels like every step I take feels like I'm walking on stones. My job don't help as I stand for at least 8 hours at a time. I hate walking because they hurt so much. I need a solution to this problem like yesterday. Can anyone tell me what I can do . Its ruining my life.

    Hi, I'm assuming the typo os for the 'soles' of you feet and not 'toes', but have you had a biomechanical assessment? Corns form as a reaction when an area of skin becomes irritated by pressure. This pressure is not something you would even feel, but the pressure on the same area of skin every day causes the skin to grow thicker, and you certainly will feel this when it eventually forms a corn. Digging the corn out will provide relief, but this is not addressing the underlying reason for them forming. An assessment of the forces generated through walking might help identify why your foot is putting pressure on these areas and lead to a possible solution to you problem. You should be told why they are occurring, what can be done, any costs explained, and be given a good idea about what benefit you can realistically expect. You should then be in a position to decide whether to proceed.

    I suffered from severe depression a few years back and as a result of the tablets and comfort eating I put a lot of weight on, I am classed as obesy in the scale of things for my weight and hight, I do a lot of walking around and my job is a lot of moving around to, I have a problem in which I sweat a lot which I'm thinking is due to the weight, I can't seem to shift it, I eat prity healthly, and like I said I do a lot of walking, is there any advice you could give me as my weight really gets to me and make me so self concious!

    Mine is the same way and for me it is not diffilcult so you sould be fine during it

    It's called Peyronies and is caused by plaque. There are treatments, but the outcomes vary greatly. If the angle is that great then it could definitely interfere with intercourse and you should consult with a urologist for your options.

    My partner was diagnosed with Parkinson's in his early 30's, so far he has been maintained on amantadine and requip xl and now he is at the maximum dose and it's not holding him any more. His joints are really stiff first thing in the morning and he has real difficulty walking but he's still to vain to use a walking stick. He is about to move onto the dopa's. I would really love to know more about them, how long can we stay on the lowest doses etc because he is only 36, we have many years to live and I worry about the future.

    I'm 29 and have been taking the ldopa for about 1-year. I moved on to these because I got a gambling disorder on the dopamine agonists such as requip. They work well/better than before but I am a little worried about the future but I have decided to just live for the day and enjoy life.

    I know I have a weakness of the muscles around the anus and so have difficulty going to the loo and the paper is always clean when I wipe,I also can't control the wind when I'm walking or if I cough or strain in any way which is most embarrassing. What is the cause of this and can anything be done.

    My son aged 9 has a verruca/wart on his foot. It is very painful and he has difficulty walking far distances as it hurts even more. We have taken him to the GP for freezing for over 2 months now and nothing has been reccomended. Is there anything you can recommend?

    Hello, I used to have a few warts so I know how your son feels. The other option that I can give to you is apple cider vinegar, it is more successful than liquid nirtogen. Also, you can buy this from food stores, just check online to find an accurate finding of the stuff. Hope it helped!

    I am a 63 year old woman and last night I wet the bed for the first time since childhood. I have been experiencing pains and tingling sensations in my legs for the past few weeks, and am having difficulty walking properly. Is there any connection between these symptoms. I passed the menopause 10 years ago.

    After reading Stacey's comment, I checked urticaria on the internet and it did not read like her symptoms. Meanwhile, I have met someone who has difficulty in walking because she has a narrowing of the spine in her lower back.She is about to receive injections into her spine to help her condition. If it does help, I will look into the possibility of having such an injection into my neck. - watch this space

    I had a mesh inserted for a rectal prolapse 3 years ago, Since then have not been able to poo. Had mesh removed in Oct last year after an episode of straining on loo left me in severe pain and difficulty walking. It was eventually found the mesh had slipped. I am still in pain. Has anyone else had this experience?

    I feel like my vagina and anus are being pulled out. Sometimes I have severe "cramps" in these areas. As for the bowels, I take an over-the counter stool softener every night.....for fear of failure to have bowel movement. When I go, it feels like the movement is incomplete. I can be walking around, and the bowel (small amount) slides out of me. I had hysterectomy in 2009.

    Oh yes. Had this surgery along with hysterectomy. Now severe pain(not bad enough to take meds) but very stressed every day, from pain always there on right side. Not sure if mesh slipped or they sutured it up on to a nerve. So looks like this surgery failed, and wished I never did it. Will see another doctor to see what the heck is going on there.

    i have the same problem but i had 2 operations and still don't solve the problem.. sometimes i have difficulty of speaking and breathing but its so annoying as i want this problem to be solved... i have difficulty of finding a job as the tone of my voice stops me.. is there anything it can be done?

    I have had two teeth bridges replaced many times by my local dentists each time at the cost of £1200.00 per bridge but only for the bridge to crack , break or crumble piece by piece. I am a pensioner with very limited income and I am able to meet such costs with a lot of difficulty and constraint. Could you help me to seek a more permanent and stable solution as I have difficulty chewing food without those bridges leading to digestion problems apart from the issue if unsightly dental profile and difficulty in maintaining healthy dental regime thus good health I enjoyed prior to my needing dental bridges. Help please!

    do you have social issues like difficulty forming friendships/relationships or obtaining/keeping jobs? if you don't, then it is unlikely you have a disability. if you DO have difficulty in these areas, then you can talk to your doctor about referral to a mental health specialist who would have extensive testing for asperger's disorder or autism. the test doesn't mean anything, really - what is more important is your day to day life.

    Hi Michelle. I saw the programme that you were on and wondered what happened to you. I too have had a mesh repair for a rectal prolapse 3 years ago.I haven't been able to poo normally ever since. Also I had to have the mesh removed 3 months ago because it had moved and I had developed severe pain and difficulty walking. I am no better, and have now been diagnosed with chronic pain cycle and can't work!! I wish I could turn the clock back. I never would have had this op. Have you or others had any similar problems? Merris

    I am a 26 year old and have been suffering from breast pain for over 5 years. Sometimes they are so swollen and painful I have difficulty sleeping, being touched and exercising. I have been to the doctors and said I am 1 in 4 women who just happen to have breast pain and gave me some gel to put on. Sometimes they are hot to touch and lumpy. They are almost like how a bruise feels. It is really getting me down as if I am out in public it gets so bad i have to take off my bra, I cant hug people and its uncomfortable walking. I would say I have about 3 days where I have no pain whilst mid menstrual.

    I had endometriosis on my bladder which caused urinary problems like a pain to start peeing and difficulty peeing. As well as a pain internally that got worse when walking and caused me to pass puss and blood in my urine. I had a lot of it burnt out during my laparoscopy but they couldnt entirely remove it so I had 9 months of chemically induced menopause. All this before I turned 20!

For the last year i have difficulty getting up and down stairs and steps even walking .my left foot is the worst pain is so intense every day i have fallen over a lot of times, which now i get scared to go out just in case my legs go my doctor said raynauds doesnt cause pain but im always in pain .i am currently on nifedipine for raynauds but can any one tell me what this pain is im getting .im a 43 year old female .

    Hi, When in school I had a nasty accident while doing gymnastics when I fell of the vaulting horse, completely missed the landing mat and both my knees hit the wooden floor of the gym, I had difficulty walking for a little while and then it settled down. Now, many years later, I have constant pain in both knees and cannot walk very far without lots of pain (it seems to travel up to my groin now too (??). I have had them both x-rayed and, although I am in my 30's, I have been told I have osteoarthritis. I am sure that being slightly knocked-kneed doesn't help either. I am going to visit a specialist soon, but I would like to know more about what my treatment options are (before I go) as physio has not worked, nor has anti-inflamatories or pain-killers. It is making my life a total misery and I am totally dispondent.

    I'm 24 and I have dealing with HS since I was 20. I get them on my inner thighs and chest. It saddens me that there isn't much support out there for HS sufferers. The pain and size of the cysts/ ruptures cause me difficulty to walk weeks at a time, I have difficulty sitting and lying down. The open wounds are quite horrific and dressing them can be unbearable. It took a year to be diagnosed, I've been discharged from my dermatologist for what reason I do not know. I feel they do not know enough, more research needs to be done. Just prescribing antibiotics and ointments isn't enough. I suffer from depression as a result of this condition, it can be very difficult staying positive when you receive little help or support. It's an endless cycle.

    I had a metatarsal osteotomy (1st metatarsal broken and straightened and tendons realigned) when I was 26 after 5 years of pain. I did iniatially get told I was too young to have this condition and that it would go but it didn't. It was extreamly painful to have done and my muscles went into spasm after the cast came off at 6 weeks meaning I had physio and severve pain and difficulty walking for about 3 months after - I was told this is more likely to happen in younger females who have this op. Would only reccommend having it done if ur in a lot of pain, not for cosmetic reasons. I have always had spread metatarsals on both sides of both feet but for me it was high heels and pointy shoes which made the condition bad enough to require surgery.

    ok inserting a tampon at your age can be difficult because you might be a virgin and beacuse of that your haymane either called cherry is not ripped and that can cause difficulty in inserting a tampon and maybe your viginal opening might be tight or the hole might be small that can cause difficulty too. but if you realy want to try a tampon try puttin lubricant on it might help to push and if u dont have lubricant siliva might help or you might be buyin a bigger tampon try smaller ones. but hei u dont realy have to use tampon there are pads. hope this helps
