To start had norm stress test, ECG norm except late trans, cta chest norm and holter norm but getting left side chest pain under breast and into shoulder. Bp fine. Pos Lyme test. Serious? Muscular?

Lab tests: Your cardiac labs are fine. The positive lyme titer is of some concern. The symptom is nonspecific and not a high probability for being heart caused. Should discuss with your doctor about musculoskeletal and also the signficance if any of the positive lyme titer.

A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more

18 year-old female with past pseudotumor cerebri and shunt placement, but now has intractable daily headache, emotional lability, slow cognition.....?

See your Dr: With your history of a shunt and new onset of headaches, lability, and slow cognition, I would recommend that you be seen by a Dr as soon as possible. If you are unable to get hold of your Dr right away, then go to the ER.

Chest port implanted Fri, surgeon said chest/neck skin very fibrous, like cutting thru gristle in meat & dulled 3 scalpels. What could be cause? Lyme?

Lyme infects joints: And nerves. The erythema annular does not scar. So, 'no' on lyme. However, previous scarring would do this. Prior procedures/surgeries in the same area certainly would do this. Alternatively other medical conditions (scleroderma) that cause scarring could also do this.

I have red itchy spots randomly all over my legs, stomach & chest. They itch horribly. I do have Lyme disease could it be related or other causes?!

I have red itchy spots randomly all over my legs, stomach & chest. They itch horribly. I do have Lyme disease could it be related or other causes?!

Not sure of the: Context. Lyme disease is an infection. It can have a rash and would need treatment. Mostly people mean "I think I might have had lyme disease sometime in the past". And the organism would certainly be entirely gone with treatment. While one can have an injury from it, it is less likely to have rash from treated lyme than treated gunshot wound.
THen, inflammations, infections, circulatory issues. .

Pain in chest with impact of walking and severe headache, bit by tick two weeks ago but tested negative for lyme. When to follow up new symptoms?

Pain in chest with impact of walking and severe headache, bit by tick two weeks ago but tested negative for lyme. When to follow up new symptoms?

Lyme disease: Do not know how you were tested, but antibody tests may not become positive until 10-14 days later, and if you have symptoms compatible with Lyme disease you should be treated. See an infectious diseases expert ASAP. Hope that you turn out not to have this.

My daughter had 3 red bumps on her chest. 1 grew to 5cm wide with a red ring & white center. No red in the very center & not itchy. Could this be Lyme?

My daughter had 3 red bumps on her chest. 1 grew to 5cm wide with a red ring & white center. No red in the very center & not itchy. Could this be Lyme?

Picture: A picture would be helpful to see if it is lyme disease. Not all red ring rashes of lyme are target like. The fact that it grew and was pale in the center is suspicious. Take her to her pediatrician, and if you have pictures, show it to him.

Would there have to be bulleyes mark on body for Lyme disease? Been experiencing chest pain/Sleep disturbances. Heart Tests were norm. Not Lyme Carditis?

Would there have to be bulleyes mark on body for Lyme disease? Been experiencing chest pain/Sleep disturbances. Heart Tests were norm. Not Lyme Carditis?

Not always a rash: The classic bullseye rash is not necessary to diagnoses lyme's. If you live in an area with many deer ticks and there is a possibility that one was on your body for more than 24-36 hours, it would be beneficial to go in to clinic to discuss blood testing for lyme's disease.

Somatizing?: This is classic. I strongly suspect you are in a difficult life situation and this itself is causing your symptoms. This is the commonest single thing that we see in clinical medicine. The normal sensations of a living body are registering as sickness. If I'm wrong, forgive me -- but these testes would pick up anything serious. I'd urge you to hit the gym hard & build quality friendships.

Abnormal cells found in breast cyst aspirate. Cells chunkier than normal. What could cause this?

Abnormal cells found in breast cyst aspirate. Cells chunkier than normal. What could cause this?

Your doc must answer: As a pathologist, I use many different words but "chunkier" isn't one that's familiar to me from breast biopsy aspirate work. You have a right to a complete explanation -- any chance of cancer? -- from the pathologist if your primary care physician or whoever did the aspirate cannot answer for you.
