What does it mean if I see streaming lights when my eyes are closed?

What does it mean if I see streaming lights when my eyes are closed?

After images: Depends what is meant by streaming. There are all sorts of after-images that can be seen with eyes closed depending on what was being looked at and how bright those objects or lights were. Intrinsic light phenomena or entoptics can be caused by light diffusing through the lids, by migraine visual episodes, and by vitreous gel tugging on the retina, just to name a few. See your local eye doc. ...Read more

Sometimes I see flickering stream of light on the corner of my eye. Is this normal? What does this mean?

Sometimes I see flickering stream of light on the corner of my eye. Is this normal? What does this mean?

Flashes, floaters: Flashes of light occur when the retina is stimulated. As the gel in the back of the eye slowly peels off the retina it can cause a flashing sensation. This may be associated with floaters. Also, people can develop ocular migraines with or without the associated headache. Your condition may be related to either of the above; see an eye doctor either way. ...Read more

0nce we become sick with any form of virus, does that virus cont. To stay present in our blood stream? Can we see, thru bloodwork, how many we have?

VIRUSES=removed: Most viruses are removed by a healthy immune system after antibodies are produced to recognize them. It usually takes <1 week for viruses in the blood to be cleared. However, some viruses can escape and live in the body in various locations. E.G. Hiv can live in host white blood cells, herpes/chicken pox (varicella) viruses hide in nerve tissue. Hepatitis lives in liver, & virus is shed in blood. ...Read more

Is a weak urine stream very serious? Should I see a doctor?

Is a weak urine stream very serious? Should I see a doctor?

Weak stream: Weak stream is never normal, even if not accompanied by any other symptom [like burning + frequency + fever + flank pain]. It should never occur as a single symptom in young people. In older men, 50yo above, it can be simply bigger prostate then normal [and always also harder instead of being really really soft and not squeezing onto the ureter]. ...Read more

I use insulin 4+ times a day sometimes I see blood where I inject what would happen if I accidently inject insulin in my blood stream, would my blood sugars drop to fast and to low, and I may blackout. I try not to but what if?

Improve your diet. Go online to "NuVal" and learn a lot about good, not so good, and bad for you foodstuff.

I am a 23 year old female. I was wondering if it was normal for my urine stream to be very strong?

I am a 23 year old female. I was wondering if it was normal for my urine stream to be very strong?

Not necessarily: As long as you have no burning when urinating or have red color (blood?) or other dark color or frequency of urination I see no need to be overly concerned. If you do have any of the above, make an appointment with your family physician. If by "strong" you mean malodorous it could be from the food you eat like asparagus. ...Read more
