I think...: This sounds like allergies. Take claritin daily. Okay to use tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen for headache if needed.

Allergy meds: There are many good over the counter allergy medications. If the problem is year round, seeing someone who does provocation/neutralization allergy testing could help the symptoms right away.

Labs: I'm not seeing lab results, sounds like much of this can be explained by thyroid disorder, but need labwork to evaluate for this, auto-immunue, and other issues, be sure to follow up with your doctor closely until issues are explained and resolved.

Call your doc: Could be viral, bacterial, other. History of travel, unsavory food intake, bleeding, sick contacts, other meds or medical conditions, antibiotic use in the last 2-3 months. Large volume or small volume diarrhea? Could even be inflammatory stuff like diverticulitis, appendicitis, etc. Risk dehydration, even with oral rehydration fluid like pedialyte (otc) call your doc.

Probably: Assuming you are otherwise healthy, the answer is probably, especially if you have had a recent cold, and/or plane travel. Call your doc. Rx may include something to open nasal passages, something to thin out mucus, something to kill germs.

A 39-year-old female asked:

How can I find out if my back problems are causing my detrusor instability? I have had three lumbar fusions. I started urinating 14 times a day after my last back surgery which was an alif. I am taking oxybutynin for frequency now but how can I be sure it

Urologist: It sounds like you are having urinary frequency, but not necessarily incontinence. The first thing should be a full evaluation by a urologist and I am sure that he will perform urodynamic tests. Additionally an evaluation by a neurologist may also be necessary accompanied by an EMG & ncs.
