What are some symptoms people have of hiv after being infected with it for3 years I have one lymph nose swollen in groin painless ulcers under tongue?

Possible, unlikely: HIV rarely would cause only these symptoms. If you also have fever, weight loss, dry skin, or others, HIV could be responsible. But your symptoms really don't matter: if you have HIV, follow your doctor's advice. If not but have been at risk (which you probably have been, otherwise you wouldn't ask in the first place), get tested. You cannot rely on symptoms to know if you have HIV. ...Read more

I've had severe reoccurring ulcers in mouth for years. I'm having outbreak in my vaginal area nasal and mouth now. What could cause this?

Be seen: Many things can cause ulcers such as infections (herpes/hiv), habits/toxic exposure, and even medications. Once ulcers start to appear I worry about some unusual systemic causes. One rare cause that can cause ulcers in the mucous membranes is behcet's syndrome. The best way to determine what is going on is to have someone do a good history and exam. Good luck! Sounds painful. ...Read more

GERD?: It sounds like your doctor thinks you have acid reflux or peptic ulocer disease-possible;hoever, I would strongly advise the need for formal allergy skin testing. Certainly ask about leukotriene inhibitor therapy (to prevent allergies) and antihistamine or immunotherapy. ...Read more

Transnasal endoscopy vs upper endoscopy! Which is better to see a stomach ulcer? I prefer to do nasal one cause I heard you can be awake.

Depends: If your doctor just wants to see if there is an ulcer there, then the transnasal is great. However often they will want to biopsy it. They cannot do this through the transnasal approach. So have a conversation with your gastroenterologist to see what the likelihood is that he/she will want biopsies. ...Read more

Ask your doctor: The doctor who prescribed these meds is properly the one to ask. In fact, he/she may be highly annoyed with you upon finding out that you asked a lot of remote-access doctors who don't have a doctor-patient relationship with you instead of him/her. This is not really responsible behavior. Don't be afraid to call your doc and ask. He/she would want you to. If he/she doesn't, find another doctor. ...Read more
