Ihave minor burning comes and goes and traces of blood on my urine. Had a CT scan done on my hip area everything is normal. My kidney blood test nmal?

See a urologist: You need to find out the reason for blood in your urine. Hip ct probably did not cover the necessary anatomy. Could the ct have been of the entire abdomen and pelvis? Also, was contrast administered via a vein? If no to either or both, may need a dedicated kidney ct (ct urogram), and/or ct for kidney stones, which is a common reason for blood in the urine, but does not explain "burning". ...Read more

Mild forehead ache for a month and now burning sensation in right forearm for a week. Ct scan done in late december last year came back normal. Ideas?

Headache: Hard to say. Clearly your doctor has evaluated you and was perhaps concerned about a cervical disc problem, thus the ct scan. Burning in arm can be a peripheral nerve problem. Headache perhaps tension? Sinus related? Blood work done perhaps to include a lyme test. ...Read more

My doctor just ran a chest xray and it showed an ectactic aorta. She ordered a CT scan. The same thing 2 years ago, and the CT was negative. I feel awful. My chest and back hurt. My chest burns, I can barely go from room to room without getting winded..

Nerve root: Although CT/MRI are good for obvious nerve damage, muscular and soft tissue injuries are not as easily to pinpoint, as well as stretching of nerve roots and the resultant pain - I suggest symptomatic treatment including appropriate physical therapy, rest, and medication, if appropriate from your provider if choice ...Read more

I have a burning and stabbing pain in my right side had blood work and cat scan today they say all is ok but pain in still there?

OK.: CT scan shows anatomy. Blood work can demonstrate physiologic or metabolic abnormality. Neither of them directly assesses pain. Seems like your pain may be due to something else - maybe in the skin or in the nerve.... Shingles can cause pain like this, so can an early hernia or a muscle strain. ...Read more

On warfarin. Fell yesterday. Calf swelled to the size of a grapefruit with jelly like fish raised marks. Painful. Burning. Er just took a cat scan and sent me home. Wat shld I do now? Help!

If numbness/worse ER: A tissue bleed (hematoma) can be managed w watchful reassessment (could measure the circumference) with analgesics/warm compresses. If the swelling worsens, pin gets worse, or numbness in foot develops need to return to er to rule out a compartment syndrome (compression of tissue, blood vessels, and nerves in a fascial compartment like te calf). This can occur if ongoing bleeding on warfarin. ...Read more

I had pneumonia and my last CT scan showed that it's all clear but I'm still feeling quite lousy how long should it take for the pneumonia to totally get out of my system so I feel back to normal?

I had pneumonia and my last CT scan showed that it's all clear but I'm still feeling quite lousy how long should it take for the pneumonia to totally get out of my system so I feel back to normal?

Follow-up: Pneumonia is a serious lung infection that can make you very ill. Pneumonia often clears up with proper treatment in 2 to 3 weeks. Make certain you get adequate rest, drink a lot of fluids, stay away from
smokers, and eat well with a daily multivitamin. I also suggest a follow-up chest X-ray and CBC to make certain there is no remaining focus of infection. ...Read more

What is PND: Sorry but not sure what you mean by PND? In doctor speak PND stands for paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea, which is awakening at night because you become short of breath due to symptoms of heart failure. I don't think that is what you meant. Please repost, I will be here online for a while and will try to answer your question. Thanks Dr R ...Read more

Overdid physical activity 10days post-concussion (involved my head moving a good bit). Feeling strange today but CT scan fine. Did I reinjure myself?

UnlikelyHeadReinjury: Unlikely to injure yourself by overdid physical activites. As long the Cat Scan was alright and you have felt fine for 10 days. In that case your feeling strange is unlikely to be related to the concussion.Rest and lay off exercise for a day or two, but if still feel strange then consult your Doctor ...Read more

Feeling my heartbeat in stomach for over a week with some pain. I have also been feeling just blah. Did get a Ct scan, was negative. Still concerned?

Feeling my heartbeat in stomach for over a week with some pain. I have also been feeling just blah. Did get a Ct scan, was negative. Still concerned?

Resolving GI bug?: The most concerning thing about "feeling heartbeat in stomach" is a prominent pulse of the aorta possibly associated with an aneurysm. This would be VERY unusual in a 25 year old. But I presume this was excluded in the CT scan. So then we are left with some abdominal pain & the blah's. Keep up hydration, eat a slightly bland diet, exercise but don't overdo, and consider?? mood issues/depression? ...Read more

I have been feeling unbalanced a little dizzy for over a year had a CT scan my dr said it wouldn't be a Tumor because I have no headache is this true?

No tumor: Imbalance and neg. CT rules out tumor. Many causes of imbalance such as meds, ear infections or anything affecting inner ear, brain or low blood pressure. Balance depends on signals to brain from structures known as the vestibular system which contain the semicircular canal. Inflammation can initiate imbalance. See ENT doc. If diagnosis is Ménière's disease, he may use med to help. ...Read more

Hard to say...: The symptoms you described are not specific for any disease and may be associated with various conditions including migraines, abnormal blood pressure, and tumors (less likely if a head ct was normal). The best way to go is to consult your doctor and he will perform a clinical exam and some laboratory tests that he/she considers necessary. These will also help ruling out leukemia. ...Read more
