Esophagitis: you'll need to be on a high-dose PPI (Prilosec, nexium) and possibly repeat the endoscopy in 3-6 months to rule out a condition like Barrett's. I assume they also took biopsies from the esophagus, follow up on that.

A sore section of : Esophagus . There is a section that is all together, but not as far down as the lower third where when they looked they could see an area that was red that tended to bleed but not outright bleeding and was all in one area but the outside lines were not straight. Hope that was an ok paraphrase. It is the section of esophagus that is obviously causing you trouble

Endoscopy result?: Sounds like you had an upper endoscopy done, you will need to speak with the provider who performed the endoscopy. The abnormal findings mentioned in your question require specific interpretation and detailed explanation of further treatment plan. I will strongly recommend against any form of guess work.

No: It is certainly the first possibility we think of, particularly in someone who was previously on a predictable cycle pattern. A simple urine pregnancy test is the first step. If it is negative other avenues should be explored. Other possibilities for delayed menses are hormonal contraceptives that suppress menses or anovulation. Your physician can help sort out the cause.

A 20-year-old female asked:

I had UTI and while I was getting treated I was bleeding a lot, like a normal period, but is that normal? I had my period a week before I had uti.

No: Treating a UTI should not cause vaginal bleeding. Sometimes a UTI can cause some blood in your urine but it is usually not heavy. It is possible the symptoms felt like a UTI but were from some other cause.

A 29-year-old female asked:

What would cause my son's ear to bleed slightly after having swimmers ear?

1 doctor answer1 doctor weighed in
Dr. Cornelia Franz
Specializes in Pediatrics
Inflammation: Is the cause of swimmers ear. The skin gets wet and boggy and inflamed and it could bleed from that or if he picks it at all it could bleed. If he had a middle ear infection as well and the eardrum perforated it could bleed. None of these are terrible problems. If you are concerned it is always a good idea to have it checked out.

Looks worse : Initially, injuries to the nose may swell and bruise. Most physicians recommend waiting approx 7 days and reevaluating. If the nose still looks swollen or crooked then you should see an ent. If it looks much better then you are safe to observe.
