You're doing fine...: You have made excellent progress towards a more healthy lifestyle. Why do you think something may be going wrong? If you had high blood pressire it is now normal. What is your weight goal? Good idea to take a multivitamin, omega 3 oil and vitamin d=3 and b-12. Be sure you continue to follow up with your physician, continue your weight loss/exercise, and please don't get discouraged!

That is perfect! You may need to eventually be on BP meds again...sometimes we don't know what causes hypertension, and we just have to treat it because we know it's harmful in the long run. We do like to get your BP as close to 102/80 as possible, but for you that might not be attainable. Good luck & you're doing great!

I think Mike meant 120/80 but agree with all the above. The main goal in weight management is to do it gradually and to be able to maintain it long term, which you are doing. Keep up the good work.

A 29-year-old male asked:

I have sore throat, headache, bodyache, mild fever. Is it a bacterial or viral infection? I had a flu shot last month.

Could be either: The symptoms you describe could indicate either a bacterial or viral infection; although statistically, viral infections are more common. An examination will be important. The fact that you had a flu shot is great but flu shots only protect against the 2-4 worst strains of influenza flu for that season; it doesn't protect against the thousands of other strains of flu. Best to see your doctor.

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.

A 43-year-old member asked:

It burns when I pee, all STD test came back clean had a yeast infection but was told too use Monistat 7. Still have the burning pain ! ! ! !?

Many possibilities: If a yeast infection is causing the burning, Monistat cures many but not all yeast infections, another med may be needed. Urine culture can identify bladder infection. Spasm of muscles in the pelvis especially the tiny muscles around the urethra can cause burning. Skin infection other than yeast, including herpes can have subtle signs but cause significant burning.

A 58-year-old female asked:

I am allergic to aspirin and ibuprofen and I have painful swollen joints in my fingers. What anti inflammatory can intake?

Dr. Keegan Duchicela

Alternatives.: There are some non-steroidal anti-inflammatories other than Ibuprofen that work on slightly different pathways in the body, but if you've had a strong allergic reaction to one, chances are you'll have a reaction to another. There's always prednisone, which is a steroid, and if used appropriately could give you some relief. You should have a talk with your doc about the full risks and benefits.
