Seasonal flu: Seasonal flu is very common viral infection with symptoms you have described. Usually the condition resolves on its own with home care. Drink water and get a good rest. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is also recommended every 6 hours. If concerned, see your PCP after 7-8 days or so. ...Read more

What's causes a light pink nose bleed during a cold or flu?

What's causes a light pink nose bleed during a cold or flu?

Nose bleed: Usually it is either the inflamed tissues lining the nose or dehydrated tissues because of use of decongestants. The lining of the nose is riddled with small blood vessels which can bleed when dried out. Try using a saline nasal spray with a neti-pot (readily available otc). ...Read more

Yes: Stomach flu symptoms (vomiting, dry heaves and abdominal pain) can be cause by food poisoning or an infectious illness (viral or bacterial). The key is to stay well hydrated and seek the care of a medical provider in 24 hours if the symptoms are not going away. Feel better! ...Read more

Bright red vaginal bleeding during stomach flu. Menses ended 3 days prior. OB says it's from straining from vomiting. Brown mucus discharge following.

Bright red vaginal bleeding during stomach flu. Menses ended 3 days prior. OB says it's from straining from vomiting. Brown mucus discharge following.

Doesn't compute...: This is surprising advice from an ObG doctor; I suspect you misunderstood. Neither viral gastroenteritis ("stomach flu") nor straining from vomiting can cause vaginal bleeding. Brown discharge could just be leftover blood, but both bleeding and abnormal discharge could mean an infection, including an STD if at risk. Get examined professionally, especially if symptoms continue or at STD risk. ...Read more

Head hurts, nausea, stomach hurts along with not wanting to move my body. Stomach flu?

Might well be.: Now, Influenza is a definite possibility. Nausea and vomiting can be a part of regular flu although respiratory symptoms usually dominate. Associated with exhaustion and muscle pain, myalgia and joint pain, arthralgia. So take it easy and if you are not better in a day or two go and see your doctor. Ibuprofen can cause nausea and stomach pain. 200- 400 Q 6 is the max. Don't take any for a day. ...Read more

My eyes are swollen and irritated it wasn't swollen before I put an eye drops on it. My nose bleed also and I feel like I'm going to have a fever. Why?

My eyes are swollen and irritated it wasn't swollen before I put an eye drops on it. My nose bleed also and I feel like I'm going to have a fever. Why?

Eye swelling: If these are prescription eye drops call your ophthalmologist and report this problem. If they are nonprescription eye drops stop applying them. Perhaps you're experiencing a viral or allergic reaction with nasal congestion explaining the nose bleed. See your physician or an ophthalmologist if you have continuing eye inflammation or visual difficulties. You can take Tylenol as needed for fever. ...Read more

My daughter has coughed up a teaspoon r so of blood, had bout the same on a nose bleed, chest pain n no fever...what do u think?

May be related: If she had the nose bleed before she coughed then the blood could have come from the nosebleed. If she has no lung problems, no fever and no other medical conditions then coughing up blood is not common in children and mostly related to bleeding in the nose or throat- if concerned it is always best to be seen by your doctor! ...Read more

Fever?: First of all why are you developing fevers? You need to give thorough history and if you get fevers on and off you need to evaluate this. If the nose bleeds are a result of a fever first find out why are you developing a fever? ...Read more

My 9yo son has an unexplained high fever, nose bleed, stomach ache, burning on urinating but ua was normal at ped office yesterday. Eating/drinking ok?

What else?: This may be serious. A negative ua doesn't explain the other findings, your son needs a full evaluation. What did the pediatrician tell you? What other tests are pending or will be done? What did his physical examination show? Talk to your doctor about all this. ...Read more

Is neuropathy associated with guilain barre syndrome treatable and if so, how do I treat it and relieve the painful symptoms? My neurosurgeon just informed me that I have g.B.S. And had it since may 2011 following a stomach flu i had 2 weeks before my sym

Your : Your case presents a few dilemmas. Gbs is a group of autoimmune diseases targeted at the peripheral nerves and causing acute progressive weakness, usually an ascending paralysis. The history usually entails the following: •upper respiratory or diarrheal disease within previous 1–3 weeks in 50–70%: c. Jejuni (~40%), cytomegalovirus (13%), epstein-barr virus (10%), mycoplasma pneumoniae (5%), or hiv •dysesthesias (painful tingling), paresthesias (tingling) of the feet and hands are usually the earliest symptoms. •pain is common- especially back pain which can radiate to the legs and not usually associated with myalgias (muscle pain). •gait disorder common in all age groups- this is the most common presentation in children •neck muscle weakness, dysphagia, and dysarthria are predictors of respiratory failure. The physical exam frequently reveals the following: •acute, symmetric, and usually ascending weakness of limbs within days of dysesthesias •areflexia (no reflexes) or hyporeflexia( reduced reflexes) and muscle weakness, decreased position and vibratory sensation •respiratory muscle paralysis 30% if untreated •cranial nerve involvement <50%; usually facial weakness, 10–20% ophthalmoparesis (loss of eye movement) •dysautonomia (abnormal autonomic nervous system responses) (50%): labile blood pressure, arrhythmias, ileus (paralysis of bowel function), urinary retention; •miller-fisher variant: ophthalmoplegia, ataxia, areflexia important lab tests •csf: elevated protein and normal white blood cells (wbcs; albuminocytologic dissociation) are characteristic with a normal opening pressure. •emg: this shows a pattern of demyelination with prolonged latencies and a reduced motor compound action potential. The medications usually used are one or more of the following: •immune globulin (ivig) •plasmapheresis or plasma exchange most patients reach the plateau phase within 3 weeks of admission, and muscle strength is expected to improve. The prognosis is: •complete recovery: 50% •some residual disability: 45% •severe permanent disability: 5% hence, the dilemma as you report no improvement and in fact worsening. Furthermore, a lesion within the spinal cord (myelopathy) can present with similar symptoms as the ones you provide. A few pertinent questions to help discern the cause would include whether you have had a lumbar puncture and EMG and what did these results show? I hope this answers your questions. Good luck and well wishes. ...Read more
