Mayo clinic tells me I have papvr with no significant hemodynamic shunt. But my rv is enlarged? Normal Lv, and rv function. I am beyond confused.

Correct: What do you mean by papvr? Hemodynamics is a general term for variations in your heart rate and blood pressure. It sounds like your heart is functioning normally and your "hemodynamics" are not affected. Even if your RV is slightly enlarged, your doctor may recommend watchful waiting. ...Read more

My spinal tap came back normal for MS and sarcoid and now my neurologist is sending me to mayo clinic to MS dr. Why? Confused?

My spinal tap came back normal for MS and sarcoid and now my neurologist is sending me to mayo clinic to MS dr. Why? Confused?

Hope this helps: Not knowing more about you, it seems that your neurologist is concerned but is having a tough time confirming a diagnosis. Re ms, if mri's of brain, and neck are not helpful, films of gray matter using dir techniques may help. Spinal fluid is not always of value, and other problems may be present, such as clippers, cadasil, or vasculitis. Since you seem perplexed, have a face to face discussion. ...Read more

My daughter tested positive/negative for hep c from the plasma center where she donates. Followed up at a clinic and came back positive. Confused. Does she actually have hep c?

My daughter tested positive/negative for hep c from the plasma center where she donates. Followed up at a clinic and came back positive. Confused. Does she actually have hep c?

Hepatitis C testing: There are several kinds of lab tests for hepatitic C virus (HCV) infection. Probably the clinic she was referred to did more sophisticated testing and the result probably is more reliable, so probably she has HCV. But this is something to discuss with the clinic -- no way to know for sure from just this information. Good luck to her and your family. ...Read more

Possibly: Your story sounds confusing-- but if you're confused too, do a pregnancy test, and avoid unprotected sex on the meantime before restarting your pills. Missed pills can cause spotting, and 1 missed pill is unlikely to cause a pill failure, but you may want to discuss other birth control options that are easier to remember. ...Read more
