I had fver for 2 weeks some on nights,chills, headache, 3 nosebleeds, small spot bruises, back/muscle pains, what could it be? Im so worried.

Petechia + febrile: It sounds like many viral syndromes. If you are blowing your nose, that could account for nosebleeds. the bruising is worrisome if there was no trauma to account for it. EBV, CMV, Influenza, hemorrhagic fevers, but also low platelets, RMSF, and N. meningitis, and scarlet fever may cause that sign. Any foreign travel? Cat scratch? Parvo virus can decrease platelets. Please seek help ASAP, ER. ...Read more

I tore a tendon/ muscle on my left foot. Had gone for treatments. Foot still feels tender when I stand or walk. How long before foot heals.

I tore a tendon/ muscle on my left foot. Had gone for treatments. Foot still feels tender when I stand or walk. How long before foot heals.

Depends: How long it takes a tendon/muscle injury (sprain, strain, etc.,) to heal depends on how serious the injury is. Since you have needed therapy, then the injury is not a minor one. It is also more noticeable because the injury occurred on your foot, which you have to use to walk. (An injured little finger, is easier to deal with, since you don't have to use it as often). Your Doc can tell you best. ...Read more
