Numbness : Numbness and tingling of the extremities are typically seen in peripheral neuropathies. Swelling is a typical symptoms of inflammation. Any history of trauma or rheumatic disease? For a better orientation you need to provide more details! i think the best option at this point is to go talk to your pcp or your family physician.

The : The aching and tingling part would usually suggest some problem starting way up in the neck. However, this would not typically produce hand swelling. A so-called thoracic outlet problem might be also considered but again this is not a classical presentation. Having said that, given that this is not a typical presentation a visit to the doctor would be suggested. Best of luck.

Yes: This is a class c drug so there are some possible effects on the fetus. However, if you are on this drug then not taking it while pregnant can cause more problems for the baby. You should never stop this class of medications without taking to you infectious disease doctor first. It is vitally important that you stay on your meds so that you stay healthy and the baby does not become infected.

Yes: Having been in this situation, i can tell you that balancing out hormones in men is just as important as doing so for women. Men lose their sex drive, become Insulin resistant, lose their vitality. I'll post a page later that describes my own personal treatment success. I feel great at almost 52 years of age.

Get tested: If you have high risk sexual behavior or use IV illicit drugs, get tested. Don't wait for symptoms because you might not have them until really late. Only one lymph node is not very dangerous but i would have a consultation with the physician to be on the safe side.

Numb the mouth: Anything that will decrease the pain in the mouth will help her drink. Ice cold foods act as a local anesthesia as they numb the area. Try popsicles, ice cream, jello, as well as pedialyte popsicles that will keep her hydrated. Also oragel will help. As it is a viral disease, there is no antibiotics that will help it. It will go away on its own.
