No. You should be ok. Side effects of too much thyroid include: rapid heartrate, chest pain, fatigue, sweating. It should be temporary.
You really need to make sure that you don't do this again. I suggest using a 7 day pill box to help remind you whether you took the medicine already or not. Best wishes. ...Read more
I have a growth on my left kidney. Over the past few months the pain has become excruciating especially at night when I lie down I don't have insurance so I was sent home from the hospital. With no conclusive diagnosis. When they found the growth, they ju
I guess i'd want to know how the "growth" was found (as in, what testing did they do?). In my experience masses in the kidney are either simple-appearing benign cysts that can be followed conservatively, or are solid and in most cases end up in the kidney being removed. I know that sounds extreme, but it's such a blood-filled organ, removing things from it is not often possible.
A lot of my patients are stuck in the situation you are with regard to insurance. I really wish you luck in finding help. I would try to see a urologist if at all possible sooner than later about this. ...Read more

A pregnancy test?: Today's home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, vaginal spotting, or medications. A test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely true, but a negative result may be due to testing too early, such as less than 2 weeks after conception. ...Read more

You may be dealing with an abscess (infection under the skin). A medical doctor will need to examine you and decide if this is the case. If so, then you will need to be treated with antibiotics. As far as working out is concerned. Often times if you have a small scratch or abrasion in the skin or umbilicus (belly button) as in your case, and you work out there is sweat and bacteria on the skin, this bacteria can get into these small cuts or abrasions (often times microscopic) and cause infection.
Please seek a medical evaluation.
Best of luck. ...Read more

Hello.: Hello. Sometimes it takes a while for the spasm to set in, this causes pain. Sitting upright puts a lot of pressure on the back. If you find that you have loss of bowel or bladder, significant weakness or numbness of your leg that could mean that something is putting pressure on a spinal nerve root. That would be a reason to seek urgent medical care. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications may help to reduce the pain. It isn't possible to diagnose in this venue; you could have spasm of paraspinal muscles, a bulging or herniated disc, an injury to ligaments or tendons. If it hasn't improved after a few days, you should consider seeing your doctor. But if you have the afore mentioned symtoms, go to an er. Take care. ...Read more

Dr. Can check throat: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). Throat lozenges and Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin can help decrease throat pain. ...Read more

Yes...: Any violation of the peritoneal cavity can create "scar tissue, " otherwise known as adhesions. Adhesions are formed by fibroblasts which, in response to trauma, secrete collagen.

What is wrong with me? Did I take the test too early? Do you think there is a high chance I'm pregnant? Please help me! My question requires a long explanation, so here goes. I am seventeen years old and was put on generess fe birth control in mid ju
Hello. Yes, you do pay attention to your body. As you are already aware, the pregnant body in response to increased estrogen produces more vaginal and cervical secretions. Often white. Additionally (in some women) the cervix will go up a little higher and feel softer. Other possible symtpoms of pregnancy include: breast tenderness and / or swelling; nausea and vomiting; constipation; feeling tired; moodiness; food cravings, increased urinary frequency, insomnia, backaches headaches; cramps of lower abdomen, passing gas, and increased salivation. Remember that these symptoms don't begin in a woman until she has missed her period (or some time thereafter).
You could still be pregnant with a negative pregnancy test if you tested right around the time you missed your period. This is because sometimes the HCG level isn't high enough to trigger a positive on the test. It can be repeated in a week or less. Take the pregnancy test exactly as the directions state. Pee on the stick (best for first morning void) and read the time exactly when it says to. I don't know if you are pregnant. I would repeat the test. ...Read more

Recurrent yeast: If symptoms are the same as last time, it should be OK to re-treat yourself with an over-the-counter yeast medication like miconazole, terconazole, etc (a pharmacist can advise you). But if it recurs again, you'll need medical evaluation for things that predispose to yeast, especially diabetes. Antibiotics can trigger yeast as well. And other infections (like STDs) can mimic yeast symptoms. ...Read more
