  • Can you have mono without a sore throat?

    My daughter was diagnosed with mono a week ago. She is six and is doing great. Full of energy and going to school. I am still waiting for my test results. The only symptom I have is extreme fatigue and major weakness. My throat is only moldy irritated. Not running a fever either. The extreme weakness and fatigue is indescribable. My eyes are heavy and even breathing feels like it takes energy out of me. Could it be mono?

  • My 6 year old daughter was diagnosed with mono today. The doctor said she can go to school and play sports.?

    My daughter had strep last week and has been taking amoxicillin. Today she came home with a rash all over her body to which the doctor said is a reaction to the antibiotics which also indicate she has mono. I need another opinion here. The doctor said she can resume school and she could play her sports but no wrestling. I always thought you had to rest rest rest with mono. Also we have a baby shower to attend Sunday. Should we skip out on this due to her having mono?

  • Could I have had a low blood sugar attack?

    Something very strange just happened to me at the store. All of a sudden I felt very irritated and confused, weak and light headed, I started to shake and all the noises around me were loud. I felt like I was goin to pass out. When I moved I felt diZzy. My hands were shaking and it felt like thiga were turning black. Soon as I checked out I grabbed a candy bar and took a bite. I wasn't sure if I was having a panic attack or sugar attack. I don't have diabetes. I am on Paxil. Been weaning off it for a month.

  • How would you take this?

    I barely know my brother in laws girlfriend. Seen her a few times. Never really even had a conversation with her. Last night we went to trivia withthem and she kept making remarks about me not being able to hear well. Now i am a good sport but I dont knwo her like that. I let her keep digging at me. So we leave and she had a few beers I had not had any. On the way home she asks how tall I am and what sisze my boobs are. I was like really? I just answered, "big" and then told her my size and she said , " mine are still bigger." Now I dont hae a problem talking like this with people I know. I reallydont know how to take this.. I think she was getting a little mean about my hearing and a bit personal about the boobs..What do you think? Was she sizing me up> being a ***** is she insecure. What would you think?

  • Why would she keep thinking her pee is leaking?

    My daughter is 4 years old and for the last month after she uses the potty (pee pee) she complains that it is dripping. At first I thought It was and we were spending lots of time trying to dry it. Well I took her to doc and she doesnt have an infection. She is still complaing in that it is dripping but its not. I have checked and she is dry. We are spending up to ten minutes at a time in the restroom trying to get her dry. (to her satisfaction) Could this indicate something else?

  • Are there any doctors that listen?

    For 14 years of my life, I am 38 now, I have been on Paxil. When I was 23 out of nowhere I started to feel really weird. Different. Not like myself. I felt dizzy, when I walked I felt like I was on a downward slope. I felt like I was dreaming, not fully awake. I tried to explain best I could to the doctor. He says, are you depressed, I say , No , but I am sad that I feel like this. I just want to be myself again. Mind you I have had ear issues all my life. I now wear hearing aids because I have lost hearing. Well "mr young doctor" gives me paxil. And it worked. I never question what happend to me because I was so relieved to be myself.Well fourteen years later I am still on it. Tried to tell doctores I think its my ears . i thnk its labrynthitis. There are so many facts that make me believe this. I have major ringing in my ear, I have lost hearing, I read all the symtoms and they are a dead renger, no pun intended. My question is though, How do I get my now doctor to listen to me. To help me with my ears to get me off the paxil. I tried to tell my previous doctor and she did not care she did not listen. She said well at some point you were diagnosed with depression. I never was diagnosed with anything. they just gave me pills. I need some support. Tomorrow I AMGOING TO SPEAK WITH MY DOCTOR AND i AM SCARED. I want to be heard and taken seriously.

  • I just found out the edicine prescribed for my stomache pain is actually and antidepressant.?

    I have had some really bad pain the in my stomach forr a couple years. within the last year it has gotten worse. numerous tests. Tests showed thickened walls of gallbladder, and fatty liver. My doctor is not concerned about either. Im pretty sure this is whats causing my pain. Anyway long story short. He, the doctor had prescribed some pills for me of which he said were for pain. well I took them for a month and when I went back he prescribed me three more months worth .They didnt help and I dont want to take them anymore. When i first filled the prescription I didn"t read the paper that comes with it. i just took the doctors word. This last friday I wanted to know exactly what I was taking and it is call Nortriptyline. It is an anti-depressant. That freaked me out. As i already take Paxil and I am trying to get off it. I dodon'tant to be on another one. I am upset because My doctor did not inform me of what exactly I was taking. I dowon'tee how an antidepressant has anything to do with ststomachssues. This doctor is a gagasteroenterologistwhy would he prprescribehis for me. I have since stopped taking it. dumped it all out. somebody enlighten me.
