I have been sick with flu like symptoms now my face is swollen on oneside and coughing hurts under my stomach like a ball is there?
The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system. Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more

Bit by a tick on back of head a week ago, no rash, sore neck, swollen lymph nodes, flu like symptoms, soreness only getting worse. Should I go to er?
Primary Dr can check: On the west coast, the western black-legged tick can bite humans, and can cause lyme disease, after feeding for 24-48 hours. A lab can test such a tick for lyme disease bacteria. The doctor may treat with antibiotics if the lab finds lyme bacteria, if the bite site has a bull's-eye rash, or if there are other worries... Such as a lot of irritation and maybe a skin infection at the bite site. ...Read more

Why are my monthly periods way worse @ times. There are times when I get my (mouthly)& my stomach hurts and I feel dizzy and gross, I feel flu like?
Menstral cycle: It is not uncommon to have heavier periods on occasion. There is some variability with the depth of sloughing of the lining of the uterus. It depends on the hormonal levels and variability. Some cycles the whole uterine lining will slough and this accounts for the heavier periods. The levels of hormones and substances released from the cells will cause the cramping to be variable as well. ...Read more

My six year old has a 102 fever and the flu has visited our house? Does he need to go to the doctor? He is generally healthy. His father is currently sick with a fever and flu like symptoms. Mom has had a cough and fever the past 2 weeks. Older broth
Fevers for the most part aren't dangerous and are just the body's natural reaction to fighting off an infection. Most of these infections are viral and may be accompanied by runny nose, sore throat, congestion, mild rash, or nothing at all. Since fevers aren't dangerous, we usually treat the fever with Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen just to make the child more comfortable as their body fights the illness.
"red flags" that we look for with fever to indicate something more serious is going on are:
-fevers that last 5 days or more
-fevers persistently above 104f orally
-a child that acts very sick - very irritable or difficult to wake
-vomiting, diarrhea, refusal to drink, or dehydration
-a purple rash, esp on the legs
-any complaints of pain such as the ear, throat, stomach or a joint
of course, use your judgement. If you are worried about your child, give his doctor a call. Good luck! ...Read more

Stopped citalopram: Did you stop your medication at the instruction of a physician? It's best to talk to your doc, even if you don't want to continue a medication, and plan for a taper and medical supervision, rather than stopping abruptly on your own. The symptoms you're describing are commonly associated with abrupt discontinuation of an SSRI. A taper would avoid them. ...Read more
