Not always: Urine testing is a good means by which infections and some stds such as chlamydia and gonorrhea can be detected however a lot of other infections and stds are also missed this way. You will need to be seen by a gynecologist for a pelvic exam and more detail testing to detect all infections. Herpes may present with blisters and burning as well.

I'm training for a marathon and rolled my ankle and was out for 3 weeks now back but bad pain below knee, is this a shin splint?

It may be: Pain is the body's way of telling us that we are doing too much and it is causing injury. You need to rest, ice and elevate. See your doctor for follow up and if symptoms persist despite immobilization, consider bone scan versus mri. Good luck!

A 24-year-old member asked:
I experience a lot of stress, anxiety and panic. I've been checked out (blood, thyroid, x ray, EKG, urine) for palpitations and the doctor says it's anxiety. What should I do?

Anxiety: If there is no physical cause then this is psychological. Make sure you are not using recreational drugs or alcohol as these can cause your symptoms. Call your doctor for a referral to psychiatrist that can determine the cause of your problem and treat you properly. No matter what be sure you are living a healthy lifestyle.

My 2 yr daughter has hand, foot and mouth disease for last 4 days. The ulcers / blisters in mouth make it difficult for her to drink and eat.. What medication will be most suitable?

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.
