• Could I have kidney disease?

    Hi guys, I've recently noticed that my urine is sometimes quite foamy. I'm a 17 year old male and in generally good health, maybe slightly overweight.

I understand that kidney disease is usually asymptomatic, but please get back to me on this. Thank you

  • Why can't I cure my anemia?

    I've dealt with this condition for years. I've had it probably since I was a young teenager and I am 26 now. I've taken iron pills that never worked and I've switched pills that has felt like a hundred times, but still nothing works. I eat foods high in iron and even have meals and drink my pills... show more
    I've dealt with this condition for years. I've had it probably since I was a young teenager and I am 26 now. I've taken iron pills that never worked and I've switched pills that has felt like a hundred times, but still nothing works. I eat foods high in iron and even have meals and drink my pills with orange juice, and still nothing. I get blood tests very often as requested by my family doctor, I go every couple of months and sometimes once a month just so that he can make sure everything is okay. However, my red blood cell count seems to get increasingly worse, and now I have a low white blood cell count, as well. I feel like the doctors just don't have a clue how to treat me, and I'm starting to think that I don't have anemia at all but since I know nothing about this condition and no one can tell me anything, I have no ways to go about treating it. I've been searching online (even though I know the internet can't diagnose you, and it never really a good idea to search symptoms online), but I can't find anything related to anemia. I've heard people time after time tell me that a certain pill works, and their anemia was cured in less than a few months, but I've had mine for over a decade.

  • What are the causes of vision going dim or black when you sit or stand ? It also happens to me if I move my head too quickly.?

    Best answer: It’s classic low blood pressure, no cause for concern unless you faint. Move around before you get up and it’s better.

  • Hi! I have had many medical issues throughout the past 4 years and still have not been able to get a diagnosis.?

    My symptoms include: heat and redness (facial flushing) in face and ears, headaches every day, eczema on my fingers, abdominal cramps and diarrhea, upper back and neck pain/stiffness, random aches in random places, fatigue (no matter how much sleep I get, I am always tired when I wake up and don't feel... show more
    My symptoms include: heat and redness (facial flushing) in face and ears, headaches every day, eczema on my fingers, abdominal cramps and diarrhea, upper back and neck pain/stiffness, random aches in random places, fatigue (no matter how much sleep I get, I am always tired when I wake up and don't feel refreshed), lots of anxiety and stress, irregular/heavy/painful menstrual cycles, left leg pain, heat intolerance, cold hands and feet, occasional heart palpitations, and occasional chest pain. I have had lots of lab work done and almost everything comes back in the normal range. The weird thing is that lots of blood tests are showing high levels of inflammation in my body, however, no doctors seem to know the cause of the inflammation. I have a positive ANA test (originally 1:80 but now 1:160). I have an elevated level of C reactive protein, which is another inflammation marker I believe. An elevated igG gluten level and an elevated igA level. Low prostaglandins level. A slightly higher white blood cell count. Low iron and ferritin. Elevated platelet count (normal range is 150-379 and mine is 418). Elevated T3 test. I also have a slightly elevated histamine level. These are the tests that are high, low, or out of range. I have had blood tests for carcinoid tumor/syndrome, mast cell activation syndrome, mastocytosis, lyme disease, cushing's disease, celiac disease, etc. and all came back negative. If anyone has an idea of what is happening, please comment! Thanks!

    The employment situation is horrendous where I live. I'm a cashier right now. Everyone tells me the same thing: get a certificate in healthcare or computers... and even then, those careers are highly competitive. Also, I have Asperger's syndrome. It doesn't mean I'm stupid. It means I have poor communication and listening skills. I can only handle dinky jobs like Starbucks. I wish I could get a job as a florist or sell candles for a living. What's so wrong with that? Advice Please

    This is probably a crazy thought but my mum was 6 months pregnant with me when the Chernobyl disaster occurred. The radiation spread as far as the UK afterwards and I'm wondering if it affected me. I was born a month early at 6 pounds, I have numerous health problems which I will suffer from for the rest of my life. I live off a cocktail of medications to function with a mostly normal life. Extremely short and skinny compared the the build of my whole family. As a child I was always sick, weak and tired. I know this sounds ridiculous but I am wondering if it has anything to do with my problems

    Could it be lupus or am I being paranoid? About a month ago, after I spent a day outside (which I rarely do) I later noticed I had a red blush on my face, and it looked like the butterfly rash pattern. Idk if it was caused by the sunlight or chlorine (we were at the pool) or because I wore sunscreen on my body but not my face, but a few days later, I was outside again, and I noticed my face turned red again, but it went away pretty quickly. Then a few days ago, I noticed a canker sore in my mouth, but it could have been random. Then yesterday I noticed the sore was back (it disappeared for some reason), and also my knees and fingers and back were hurting but very mildly, and it also could have been because I was bending over and don’t usually do this, and I was writing a lot and it’s summer so I haven’t written in a while. I have also had recent GI problems (diarrhea ick) but it also could have been PMS, so I really don’t know, but I have an irrational fear. I have also been looking at my cheeks and noticing that they are red but I don’t know if everyone’s is like this.
