Outpatient.: If this is recurrent we already have some insight into what it is or at least what it has not been in the past. Don't see any reason for the hospital but sounds like you would benefit from rheumatology involvement and perhaps some routine lab studies. ...Read more

OH MY: You have a lot going on the cold is the least of it. That seems like a virus and worsened by stress. I am concerned that the attempted mugging/rape seems to take second place as this is the most concerning event. Glad you are alright. Rest and fluids and analgesics for the virus. ...Read more

Dizzy/fainted, mod to severe pain lower right ab (appendix removed) nausea, mild fever and general malaise. What could it be? Should I be seen?

Dizzy/fainted, mod to severe pain lower right ab (appendix removed) nausea, mild fever and general malaise. What could it be?  Should I be seen?

Yes you should: If the pain was so bad you fainted, it could be serious. If you fainted from low BP, it could be blood loss. You could have ruptured cyst, ectopic pregnancy, or a bowel problem after your appendectomy or a kidney stone. None of these should be ignored. Plus you have fever, so more is possible.Go now. Good luck! (From across the strait) ...Read more

Had high ANA on test after illness, now negative, but still malaise, also dizzy, nausea, freezing hands/feet, mild fevers. Likely to be autoimmune?

Had high ANA on test after illness, now negative, but still malaise, also dizzy, nausea, freezing hands/feet, mild fevers. Likely to be autoimmune?

ANA: A negative ANA does not guarantee that what you have is not an autoimmune disorder, but it certainly increases the chances of not having an autoimmune disorder. The ANA is a non-specific test, usually one of the first used, when we suspect an autoimmune disorder. There are many other tests that are more specific. Your symptoms may start to get better now that the ANA is neg. If not, need eval. ...Read more

38wks pregnant, stuffy nose, earache, headache, mild fever, overall "feeling bad". Hold out to Dr tomorrow, or head to urgent care tonight?

38wks pregnant, stuffy nose, earache,  headache,  mild fever, overall "feeling bad". Hold out to Dr tomorrow,  or head to urgent care tonight?

Viral illness: This sounds like you either have a common cold or a flu-like illness. Doubt that you need urgent care, but always err on the side of safety, and if you feel poorly enough go and be checked. Drink lots of liquids, use OTC meds to alleviate symptoms (your friendly pharmacist can tell you if they are OK in pregnancy). Hope you are better soon. ...Read more
