Getting pain in left testicular from four days and my age is 25 years?

Getting pain in left testicular from four days and my age is 25 years?

Epididymitis?: At age 25, epididymitis due to gonorrhea or chlamydia is the most serious common cause of one-sided testicular pain, especially if enlarged or tender, and/or discharge from the penis or painful urination. Torsion (twisting) is a surgical emergency; get care immediately if pain onset was very sudden, although this is less likely after age 20. For sure see a doctor if the problem continues. ...Read more

18 and almost 19 (in four months), can I grow taller, my brother, 5 years younger to me is almost my height (165 cms)?

18 and almost 19 (in four months), can I grow taller, my brother, 5 years younger to me is almost my height (165 cms)?

May be too late but: I am sorry to tell you that most men stop growing around age 18- but occasionally some will grow until age 21 or so. Taking measures to increase your production of growth hormone might help, but if your growth plates have closed (like most 18 yo's) then you've reached your max.

I've been using a wheelchair for the last four years and 4 days ago I noticed that I couldn't breathe when I stand up. What can I do to fix this?

Go to ER: Get the problem evaluated ASAP. See a doctor today or go to the ER. This can be a major issue. People who are wheelchair bound run an increased risk of having a pulmonary embolism (a blood that travels to the lungs). There are, of course, other possible causes but the issue still needs immediate evaluation. ...Read more

Total thyroidectomy 10 years ago. Numbers stable. Last four months low numbers. Levo increased from 50mcg to 88 to 150 to 175. why am I not absobing?

Total thyroidectomy 10 years ago. Numbers stable. Last four months low numbers. Levo increased from 50mcg to 88 to 150 to 175. why am I not absobing?

This is common: The reason that it is important to continue checking thyroid function regularly for the remainder of life after thyroidectomy is because the requirements for thyroid hormone replacement can change at any time without any identifiable cause. It is not unusual for a person to require high doses of thyroid replacement following total thyroidectomy. There is no reason for concern about absorption. ...Read more

I have four single children, youngest being 6months old. I'm 25 years old and my husband is 23, I would like to try for twins and how.

Do this right: You need to be working with several experts with this attempt at conception. Reattaching tubes is very difficult, but thee are options such as egg retrieval and in vitro fertilization. But you also need to make sure you are psychologically ready, as these methods are by no means a sure thing and you need to be ready to deal with those feelings of loss you experienced 4 years ago. ...Read more

How to stop my son 10 years getting scared from the elevator that was hanged between floors a few times around four times, is it became a phobia now?

A major problem?: If the fear is disabling him or interfering with his life and development in a major way, you need to get him evaluated. Your family physician has resources that may help. I had trouble understanding -- was he or someone else injured there? All kids have fears that make little sense and that they forget soon enough -- most don't need to be "medicalized." good luck & use common sense. ...Read more

I pull eyelashes. Have for about four years. Stopped in the summer. My eyelashes growing in bad some go sideways etc. Have I perminently damaged them?

Doubtful: Eyelashes grow out of "preset" areas on the lid. You can't move these. Chronic inflammation can cause the eyelashes to grow out of the glands (little sweat ducts called meibomian glands) around your eye. This is called distichiasis. Your manipulation of your eyelids may be making this worse and causing the eyelash to grow normal. Go to your eye doctor. ...Read more

If you are having a: Hard time holding your head up, you need to be examined immediately. Is this because of severe pain or weakness? I don't like the sound of that since you are also reporting hand weakness. When was the last time you got imaging of the C-spine stenosis?
