Congestion with fever high 103 took tylenol (acetaminophen) 2 hours ago now 102.2. Any suggestions?

Don't take more!: Fever is a key aspect of how we fight infections- microbes don't survive at high temperature ; our white blood cells work better. Reducing fever may help someone feel better temporarily but prolong infections! Take tylenol (acetaminophen) only if you're miserable but know you're sabotaging your immune system ; will be ill longer. I suggest umcka, homeopathy; fluids-see http://bit. Ly/1f6rjci ; http://bit.

Typhoid: A single widal test in an unvaccinated patient showing h and/or o titres greater than or equal to 1:160 and typhoid-like symptoms is strongly suggestive of typhoid fever. It also appears that h titre is more useful than o titre. More false positives are found than false negatives. Under these circumstances, the clinical picture is the decisive factor in making a diagnosis of typhoid. ...Read more

Went 2 ER for severe flank pain & fever. High WBC &high neutrophils. U.S shows right pyelonephritis of upper pole but urine negative for bacteria, how?

Obstructed?: Obstruction of the upper part of the ureter or within the kidney could do this. E.g. from a kidney stone or papillary necrosis. That is, the infected area is not draining, and so no bacteria or white blood cells in the urine. If so, it's quite serious. It is common not to see bacteria on urinalysis but they are found in culture. Keep working closely with your doctors. ...Read more
