De-stress: Stress is often the culprit. Family, work, etc. Also, hormonal variables can be involved. Nutrition can also be a factor. It would not hurt to get the lesion biopsy.

Oh : Oh my goodness, my deepest sympathies. Anyone with your circumstances would feel overwhelmed and would have a very hard time dealing with it all. You are dealing with two of the most difficult stressors life can present. Although you haven't specified, many times people in these situations with even just one of these stressors will start to feel depressed, anxious, have difficulty sleeping, or have other such symptoms, which all have a snowball effect. While medications can help treat the symptoms, they do not help cope with the underlying cause. It can be quite beneficial to talk to a counselor. It is pertinent to find someone that is well-qualified. It can also be helpful to find support groups with people who are going through the same types of (tremendous) stress and understand and will listen and support you. I am so sorry to hear of all this. It is overwhelming for people to hear as you will see when you try to tell them. They try to make it better, or solve it for you, etc. So obviously, to go through it is in fact very overwhelming and everyone needs others to share the burden. You may find the best approach is to use medication to help the symptoms, but to seek professional help and support groups to help cope. ...Read more

Many : Many women with the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud will not have a period or will have irregular spotting after placement. If you cannot feel the string and are worried about whether it is still there, make an appointment with your doctor. They can check for proper placement with an internal gyne exam and if it is ok, they can show you how to feel for it. In the meantime, until your appointment, use condoms or another form of birth control until you know that your Mirena (levonorgestrel) is still in place. ...Read more

What to do if I have like a crakling in my ear and What to do if I have just went to a pool earlier this day, what is it?

Eustachian tube: Hello, your ear symptoms sound like they are due to a eustachian tube dysfunction. The lining in your nose continues into the eustachian tube. Any condition affecting your nose will in turn cause ear symptoms. I would recommend afrin nasal spray as directed for 5 days. An otc decongestant can be used as directed thereafter for 7-10 days. If the symptoms persist, then see your ent. ...Read more
