How long can I wait with difficulty breathing and fever to see if it goes away without seeing a doctor?

How long can I wait with difficulty breathing and fever to see if it goes away without seeing a doctor?

Difficulty breathing: There are 3 basic symptoms for which you should never wait to see if they go away without being evaluated--shortness of breath, chest pain, and severe abdominal pain. The reason for this is that all of these can be associated with catastrophic illness (as well as many more benign illnesses). But there is no way you can tell. You need an md/do evaluation. See a doctor. ...Read more

Thyroid storm/crisis: Swollen and tender thyroid along with fever/dizziness etc...Is concerning for an acute thyrotoxicosis (thyroid storm)--an infection/inflammation in your thyroid causing a huge release of the hormone resulting your symptoms. Since you are having a hard time breathing, i would not wait because of a long weekend. Call your doc to find your options. Good luck. ...Read more

Ttc immediately after m/c(22aug) at 19w for ic. Reports r normal. Dr. Said no problem if get pg right now but better to wait 1cycle. How right she is?

Probably right.: There is little evidence to say how long (if at all) to wait for conception after a midpregnancy fetal demise - my condolences for your loss. One cycle later should be enough - although it may not be necessary; i would trust your gynecologist - it sounds like she knows what she is doing. Take Folic Acid >1 mg daily and best of luck! ...Read more

I had unsafe sex today im anxious about it because of hiv.The problem is I have to wait 6 months so i can do the test.Is there any other solution?

I'm sorry: But definitive results for HIV testing do require the waiting period. Symptoms of other std's may show up sooner. If you are very concerned, please see your physician in your own community -- some things can be checked for sooner. Hoping you'll opt for safe sex using condoms from here on out. ...Read more

Why can't you wait until after babies are born to do prenatal testing if suspect chromosome or other problem?

Why can't you wait until after babies are born to do prenatal testing if suspect chromosome or other problem?

Prenatal screening: You can wait until after birth, but the value of 'prenatal' testing - which means before birth - is it can be done early. Parents feel knowing about baby's medical problems before birth is good for coping and adjusting. Doctors who know in advance special care or surgery is needed can also anticipate and plan better for the baby's needs. But a mom may decline prenatal screening if she chooses. ...Read more

Unclear: The cause of this is unclear. Schedule a visit with an Obgyn who can test your vaginal discharge for infection. Bacterial vaginosis and trichomoniasis can sometimes have a sort of greenish appearance. Yeast when thick can some times appear slightly yellow/green ...Read more

Please help me. I recently moved and am having trouble getting a doctor to accept a new patient. Currently no one is accepting patients until July. I have a serious problem and cannot wait until July. My insurance also will not allow me to go to an Urgent

Please help me. I recently moved and am having trouble getting a doctor to accept a new patient. Currently no one is accepting patients until July. I have a serious problem and cannot wait until July. My insurance also will not allow me to go to an Urgent

Insurance Problem: Excuse me, but you have horrible insurance. I will not make a political statement. You need to get your insurance involved. You may have to just pay out of pocket to be seen at an urgent care or at a doctors office because you have an insurance that pays so poorly that nobody wants to take it. Another option is HealthTap Prime or Concierge. ...Read more

How long can I wait to have a bridge put in after an extracted tooth? I am having a broken tooth extracted next week and plan on adding a bridge. Problem is, my dental insurance doesn't kick in until august 1st so i'd need to pay all out of pocket. Can i

How long can I wait to have a bridge put in after an extracted tooth? I am having a broken tooth extracted next week and plan on adding a bridge. Problem is, my dental insurance doesn't kick in until august 1st so i'd need to pay all out of pocket.  Can i

There : There should not be any major treatment problems waiting until august to start the bridge for your missing tooth. The adjacent and opposing teeth will not have time to move into the space left by the extracted tooth and the extraction site will have time to heal. Have you considered an implant? What may be of concern though is that your new insurance may have a" pre-existing condition" clause that may absolve them from providing reimbursement for procedures done to replace a tooth that had been extracted prior to the insurance policy taking effect. I would check on the terms of the policy. Your dentist may be able to help you in this matter. ...Read more
