Hives from head to toe an hour after eating shellfish for the first time. No swelling or breathing difficulty but extremely itchy and uncomfortable...

Likely allergic!: I highly recommend taking Benadry, two tablets, to help reduce the itching and discomfort. If you develop any facial/mouth swelling or difficulty breathing, then you have to call 911 for help. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) takes roughly 30 minutes to work. Then you need to see an allergist for testing to determine your specific food allergies. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Is it normal to still have joint pain 2 weeks after an iron infusion?

Is it normal to still have joint pain 2 weeks after an iron infusion?

Not surprising: I certainly would not consider a joint effusion two weeks after an iron infusion normal, but it is not unheard of nor is it surprising. If there is some underlying reason for inflammation in the knee, such as a meniscal tear or arthritis, the iron infusion can exacerbate the pre-existing inflammation in the knee. This will cause the infusion to stick around longer. If you have other symptoms, i may seek further advice from orthopod. May need joint drained and fluid sent for analysis. ...Read more

I have a ANA positive result and elevated ESR 7 months ago along with joint pain/swelling that gradually gets worse, fatigue, cognitive issues. Normal CRP and CCP. No other reccomendations from Rheumatologist. ?

More tests: Joint swelling and an elevated ESR indicate that you have joint inflammation, not just joint pain. This makes it suspicious for seronegative RA (rheumatoid arthritis with negative RF, negative CCP) or a disease in the lupus family. The ANA is not as helpful as you might think as it is positive in many conditions. However, you need DNA, ENA, complement testing now for diagnosis. You also need Rx. ...Read more

Is it normal to have a joint pain and general exhaustion within the first 24 hours after masturbation? I am a 26years old male.

Could be: There is nothing wrong w masturbation. It will not make you fat, blind or infertile. Orgasm is an intense experience. Besides involving contraction of body muscles (which can leave you sore if not used much) there is release of neurotransmitters, some which make you very relaxed & even sleepy. If very tired for more than several hours, check w your doc to make sure something else isn't going on. ...Read more
