Does Appendicitis Run In Families
Could apendicitis or peritonitis not hurt and the person just felt like liquid running through the right side of abdomen??
My dr 2 days ago run urine culture to check for bladder infection. No blood in urine. Dr sent me to ER to check for appenditicis. Ct scan normal, bloodwork normal, but had urine in blood 2 days later. Why does this happen? Do I actually have uti?
Agree with Dr Garber: If you are on, or just finished your period, urine will show blood. Blood means red cells, without white cells UTI (infection) is much less likely. Need to recheck urine to make sure blood is not still there. If still, with protein, need a nephrologist, if blood without protein in urine, need a urologist. ...Read more

I am 17 year old and I am 5'6.Is there any chance I can grow. All my family members are tall. I do stretching and I run aslo..
Maybe, maybe not: Some kids continue to grow taller into their late teens or rarely early twenties but only when their bone maturity lags behind their age. If the growth centers of the long bones have fused, you cannot grow taller. A single x-ray of the wrist ; hand can yield a bone maturity. Most boys stop at 17. Stretches will not help. Balanced nutrition, rest and exercise allow you to reach your potential. ...Read more
I noticed im a pound heavier, a little more tired than usual. No other symptoms. Could this be hyopthyroidism? 22, healthy. Doesn't run in family
Yes, but...: Being a pound heavier today, and a little more tired today, is seen in everyone at one time or another. So, it could be normal, or could be part of any condition a person can think of.

Yes: Raynaud's symptoms do run in some families. There is presumed a genetic factor involved, but the particular genes have not been identified for Raynaud's disease. In Raynaud's syndrome, the other medical conditions, such as autoimmune disorders, can also be familial, resulting in several members of a single family having a disorder that causes Raynaud's symptoms. ...Read more
