Conditions with symptom: 'visual impairment'
I had an internal ultrasound a month ago, & l bled profusely. Had bi-manual 2 weeks ago, & GP felt small lump in vagina but no other masses. Could not use speculum due to pain and bleeding, so unable to do visual inspection. Been bleeding on and off ever since, and feel VERY sore, especially on left side of vagina. I am 61 years old. Do l need to seek further help?
I would have your md to a transvaginal ultrasound to see if you have fibroids, and a biopsy to see if there is any Cancer. Ask for a CA 125 blood test which tells of you may have a cancerous problem such as ovarian. I don't mean to scare you but check out the symptoms with md stat!!! And insist on all these tests. I'm a nurse please listen:))) I know you said vagina but this good be a side effect of fibroids which are non cancerous. Any please go now to md.
Hello, I'm 31 years old and about 4 years ago, while on holiday, my family noticed I had a few white spots in my armpits, I always use factor 50+ when out in the sun as my skin will burn if I don't, since then my patches have got worse, they are around my eyes, on my wrists, on the back of my hands, on my elbows, the top of my feet and on my inner thighs. I asked the doctor about them a few years ago and he said it was probably vitiligo and there is no treatment!? Just wanted reassurance that it isn't anything to worry about and not a visual symptom of anything more serious!? The marks don't really bother me too much, however I am more conscious of the ones around my eyes and on my hands. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
Ototoxicity - I have been off work for 10 weeks. My balance is all over the place I actually look as if I am drunk. I have been sick and really dizzy and tinnitus in both ears its driving me mad and my doctor has put me on antidepresents how is that meant to help? I have tried various medications none actually work they just make me sleepy. I want back to work as soon as before I dont have a job to go back too. I have to drive to work as I live in the middle of no where but driving with visual distubance is scary never mind a dizzy attack. I feel like no one has an answer for me and what the future holds. Please help as I am in despair and its really getting me down.
Hi, Im a young female who has great difficulty using tampons, to the point I've been unable to use them. The only way i can describe it is that there is not enough room, ive tried everything and every type! I fear my attempts may have caused some damage now however. Recently, when removing the partially inserted tampons, a piece of flesh has appeared at the opening. It can sometimes appear blue/black at different stages of my cycle, and is about 0.5-1cm long. For about six hours after this happens, sitting down can be quite uncomfortable and within 24 hours the flesh appears to disapear again, though this time seems to be getting longer. Its as though part of the inside of the vigina is turning inside out. (The visual and physical pain of this is also making me terrified of sleeping with someone!) I was treated for an imperforate hymen about six years ago, and I'm also currently a virgin, should this information be relevant. Thanks
Hi I also have suffered with excessive sweating all my adult life. I have tried Driclor on my underarms and have had some success.(I must say that in situations where the wet underarm marks would cause more severe and visible nervous sweating aroound my head,body. The Driclor keeping my armpits dry helps me compose myself quicker and calm my otherwise negative thoughts towards the visibility of facial sweat that would normally cause me to head off in search of somekind of kitchen towel or hand dryer. So in this aspect the Driclor does help. However my sweating is constant irrevelant of outside/inside temperature and has affected too many decisions in my life,and I have avoided too many social activities for me to keep ignoring it. I have two small children and do not want them to miss out on anything socially because of my sweating. I want to try the Pro-Banthiene tablets but was wondering what effects they will have on me. My body obviously has a constant battle to cool itself down, the visual indicator of this is the loss of excess fluid (sweat), so how will I know if my body is overheating if I do not sweat???????? I like many others have encountered very unhelpful GPs with this,(Im very aware of "how healthy it is" to be sweating out my toxins), try doing it even when you're cold and see how healthy YOU feel Doc. Sorry if I have rambled on, just really want to get control of this. Any help would be much appreciated, Thanks Pete.
