My hearing test is normal but I have trouble understanding speech. Why?

My hearing test is normal but I have trouble understanding speech. Why?

Maybe aphasia: I am glad you had your hearing checked first as that would be the initial thing to look into. If those tests are normal, then how your brain processes speech. Some strokes can affect the part of your brain that allows you to hear and speak properly. Problems are called aphasias. Also, even with normal hearing, some people can be distracted if trying to hear with lots going on. Get checked out. ...Read more

I'm having difficulty understanding my HSV test results?

I'm having difficulty understanding my HSV test results?

HSV blood test: Post the details in a new question and I'll try to help. Assuming it's a blood test, include the specific test done, if you can learn that from your doctor or the lab; and the numerical values for IgG testing for HSV1 and HSV2. If IgM testing also was done, show those results -- but most likely they can be ignored. HSV IgM testing is notoriously unreliable and the results usually meaningless. ...Read more

Why did a neurologist automatically assume depression, (numbness, vision problems, fuzzy memory) after negative mri? Ana positive. Gp says lupus.

Why did a neurologist automatically assume depression, (numbness, vision problems, fuzzy memory) after negative mri? Ana positive. Gp says lupus.

Depends: Lupus causing central nervous system findings is advanced & has unequivocal lab findings 2 go with significant physical findings. A positive ANA is not diagnostic of anything specific. If you had lupus causing CNS abnormalities, many other autoimmune tests are likely to be extremely elevated. Lupus would have joint & kidney findings too. Anxiety or depression are more common & likely the reason. ...Read more

What are the lloyd hearing test results trustworthy?

I'm anemic and period irregular pregnancy show faint positive test?

I'm anemic and period irregular pregnancy show faint positive test?

Faint+ is positive: Anemia should not influence/affect the result of urine pregnancy test. Irregular period can contribute to difficulty with getting pregnant, but also does not affect hpt result. So, your test shows a faint positive which means it is positive. U can retest in 2-3 days as well. I recommend seeing doc for confirmatory testing and follow the course of pregnancy. Congrats and good luck. ...Read more

What to do is to not use illicit drugs when such use puts you at risk - this is the definition of having a drug problem. Modern methods of drug testing will detect pretty much every potential technique for beating it. See your health professional. ...Read more
