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

Waiting another 2 years for nose surgery so I can breath through my nose again, broke it as a kid, I breath through my mouth and grind my teeth and get mouth ulcers. What to do now? Mouth Guard? Pray?

Nose strips CPAP: First, why do you need to wait two years? If it is a medical issue preventing surgery, there are a few nonsurgical ways to try to improve breathing. Breathe Rite nasal strips can help to open up the nasal valve for some mild improvement. A mouth guard can help with the grinding, but may be hard to use as a mouth breather. Nasal CPAP may help force enough air through the nose to improve. ...Read more

What causes itchy mouth roof, itchy face, itchy nose, itchy eyes and itchy body also itchy lips all at once? And also mouth ulcer on upper & lower lip

Itchy mouth: This is impossible to diagnose accurately without a clinical exam and thorough medical history. It sounds like you have either a viral infection, or an allergic reaction to something ingested or touched to your face.

Duodenal ulcer and stricture. Abdo pain that goes to left chest and back. Nausea. Anemia. Faintness. Sweating. Runny nose when eating?

Runny nose: I will answer the runny nose part, that has no relation to the other symptoms. Runny nose after eating is called vasomotor rhinitis and can be treated with an antihistamine or anticholinergic nasal spray. Oral antihistamines do not affect it. Ask your doctor for a prescription instead of walking around with tissues all the time. ...Read more
