Jul 14, 2012 · Upper abdomen pain left side in Infectious Diseases

I have heard of that even though it is a bit unusual. I hope you are all right. Because I have had it I understand how painful it is. Best of luck!

Jan 12, 2012 · Looking for a diagnosis in About Kids & Teens

Please look at this site: http://www.medicinenet.com/histoplasmosis/page2.htm
I’m not trying to scare you but your post says that the spot on his lung is histoplasmosis. The site above gives a good overview of that disease and the symptoms that you are talking about. That being said there are some similarities of smptoms between your son and that disease and the website. I am not a medical professional nor do I pretend to be one. I am just a mom and thought I would search the name and see if I found anything. Good luck.

Jan 12, 2012 · Horrible Rash While Pregnant!! in Women's Health

I hope everything went well with you and your baby. I am new to the site so I didn’t see this question until recently. Anyway, I am not a Dr. or medical professional but I do have a friend who also had a horrible rash like you talk about when she was pregnant. It was a nasty bugger and was hot to the touch. Even if you held your hands over it you could feel the heat. The name of her rash was PUPPS. I think the steriod cream you used was what she did too but the only cure is delivery. When you have your baby that’s when it goes away. For her it was two days later. So I would say use oatmeal or some type of comforting cream if it’s okay with your Dr. as I am not in the medical field. Good luck toyou and your baby.

Jan 10, 2012 · Upper abdomen pain left side in Infectious Diseases

I know that when I experienced pancreatitis the pain I felt began in the stomach and then wound up where I stated in the upper abdomen, left side. I did a quick check and on webmd it states that the pancreas is only 6 ” long (you could have fooled me) and located in both the right and left sides. Check out this link:

again, good luck.

Jan 10, 2012 · Need a diagnosis - don't know where to go in Visiting Mayo Clinic

I don’t know if it is but good luck to you. I hope they find out what is wrong with your wife.

Jan 10, 2012 · Upper abdomen pain left side in Infectious Diseases

I’m not a medical professional in any way, but I did once have pancreatitis and it was in the upper abdonimal area and on my left side. I would ask for another appointment and ask for some blood work which could help to pinpoint the problem. If anything wakes you up at night, I would consider that to be on the urgent side. If your Dr. doesn’t think so, get a second opinion. Again, I’m not a medical professional so I don’t know what is wrong but if I were you, I would get in to see them again. Best of luck and keep us posted.

Jan 10, 2012 · I too have fibro. At first I didn't want the Dr. to

I too have fibro. At first I didn’t want the Dr. to diagnose me because to me, it meant that they didn’t know what was wrong. But as I began reading, I also began to notice the symptoms that are affecting me and why I have been feeling some of these things.

I hope you are able to get on a good medication regiment, that is so important including pain management. If you can get help with the pain then you are half way there. It many not completely disappear but with pain management you will be able to bear it also.

Another thing that I have noticed is that if I concentrate on my diet and eat lest sugar and carbs, only those two so far, it lessens the symptoms of the fibro.

There are a lot of website devoted to the symptoms of fibro including diet, pain management, excercize and other aspects. Read as much as you can about it. Make changes that you do research and decide are right for you slowly. That way you will know what change has the best effect for you.

Good luck in your search. I know how it feels, I truly do. It took me a little while also to get from the realization that something is wrong, to diagnosis to I’m going to be okay. You too will be there just give yourself a chance. It’s going to be okay. @janasr

I’m so sorry for your loss. In times like these, it’s very hard for people to know what to say, and that may be why I see there are 161 views and only a few replies. But I will say may God bless you and your family as you move through the coming months. It must be very difficult during these times. Please know that there are others out there who care and who are praying for you.
