Had a bad fever with bad body aches, etc. Woke up today morning to urinate and I blacker out. I know abt mic. Syncope, should I be worried. ?

Probably viral: Sounds to me that you probably have some viral illness that caused dehydration from fever and not adequate intake. Passing out when trying to urinate is likely related to low blood pressure from this dehydration. Try drinking lots of fluids, including electrolyte solutions with salt and sugar and take Acetaminophen for fever and aches, along with bed rest for a few days. This should resolve ...Read more

Migraine?: Sounds like a migraine. Have you had headaches like this before? Migraines are very severe, and are accompanied by nausea as well as an aversion to light and sounds. This episode will pass in short order, but these headaches are episodic so you will likely get another at some point. You may need some diagnostic testing and certainly need some treatment options. ...Read more

Ignore scary stories: There is no way MetroGel could cause such symptoms. You're probably seeing scare stories from people who are making assumptions about what caused their symptoms. This is at least your third question about your unreasonable fear of MetroGel. Let's make it the last, OK? ...Read more

I just had a 24 hour stomach flu. Towards the end of it I passed out (syncope) twice in my bathroom. Is this normal? I hit my head badly the 2nd time.

Likely dehydration: Likely dehydration contributing. Would suggest hydration, either by mouth or IV if unable to keep fluids down. If cardiac history as suggested by procedures, time for a visit to ER. ...Read more

Why does increasing my prednisone clear up bad dysautonmia spell of brain fog, near syncope when nothing else does (ie salt, h20, florinef). I have ctd.

Why does increasing my prednisone clear up bad dysautonmia spell of brain fog, near syncope when nothing else does (ie salt, h20, florinef). I have ctd.

Immune modulation: If your ctd refers to "connective tissue disorder", then your body produces antibodies against your own tissues. Dysautonomia is one possible manifestation of auto-antibodies attacking your autonomic nerves. In that case, Prednisone would suppress the connective tissue disorder's autoimmune attack against your autonomic nerves. ...Read more

First time using a tampon. It hurt so bad i almost passed out. What am i doing wrong?

First time using a tampon. It hurt so bad i almost passed out. What am i doing wrong?

Technique: When you first start using tampons you may find it easier to insert a “slim” tampon with a smooth plastic applicator that has a rounded tip. Recommend that you avoid super tampons with cardboard applicators when you first start. There are may u tube videos that provide instruction on proper tampon insertion. Change tampons roughly every 4 to 6 hours. Moms can usually give advice about tampon use. ...Read more
