Nothing posted by this doctor yet. Here are some posts by similar doctors.

This is the 17th week from the day I had intercourse with a escort. From last 1 week I am having the continuous burning sensation on tip of my penis and sometime pain spread to testicles. 1 week before the pain was acute but now it does not hurt much. Sometime I find little pain while urinating and sometime for days I feel ok. I do not have any discharge coming. No pus, no yellow or green fluid. Sometime I feel like something is coming from my penis but nothing comes. I do not have any symptoms like rashes or blisters. This thing happened when I had a much alcoholic consumption 1 week ago and the next morning I woke up with this feeling. Now the pain spread into my back. I have a joint pain issue from last two years but for the last week it got increased little bit. I thought it was UTI but I was do not have any symptoms like peeing again and again and continuous burning sensation. I got little etching but my skin seems to be clean. I also had a anxiety as soon I finished the intercourse. Because I had a doubt that she had a STD. I started taking PEP withing 60 hours. The after 1 month back I tested for PCR DNA. Which came out negative. I did a protected intercourse but I still doubt that I used it properly as it was my first time I had intercourse. Badly Irritated about the burning sensation in the tip of my penis. Pain is normal and bearable but sensation continues. I took advice of Urologist. There was no UTI infection. He said be to go for STD test again and gave some medicines for relief but conditions are same. I have checked for herpes, clamdiya and Gonnorea and they all were negative. I also did pcr dna test after 17th week and it was undetectable. Can I get a false negative result after 17th week. Urologist said to do endoscopy as all reports were negative. 120 days over, this is to be noted that after checkup and after 120 days I am getting seroconversion (ARS) symptoms. Had a small lump in my groin (i guess it is a swollen lymph node), pain in eyes ,fissure (from 2 week) neck pain, blisters on right cheek (big fluids pimples), mouth ulcer for 2 days (and den vanished) and gastro issues. Back pain (pain got less within week) and little heaviness in my back head and I have that feeling when I close my hands something under my armpit feeling. I have suffered all these issues earlier too. Now within week, they all are coming together, is a indication of something? May be my immune was strong, so I seroconverted late after 4 months? Can PCR test be false negative after 3.5 months? I am scared of being tested again as I afraid of being seroconverted. Seems like bad luck after using protection, prep medicine, getting the negative hiv in pcr test, still getting seroconverted. Seeking for emotional help Very scared! seems to be like a dark future! I know hiv patient can also live the normal life like others but having Suicidal feeling in the society where Hiv is a taboo! taking mobizox, Pan20, contiflo and Livoluk and lox jelly for piles. Back pain near rib was enormous when moving. Pain started from lower back then moved to upper left back near rib when moving now pain.

Hello Mr. lybrate-user. Read your query completely. The symptoms are haphazard may be due to antibiotics usage. First of all stay calm as you have protection during the intercourse and the DNA PCR is negative. Simply perform HIV antibody test after 3 months and that is enough. Remember you are an educated and in youth. It's your responsibility to fight against a taboo rather fearing it blindly. We will not disclose patient's status to anybody and a HIV patient who takes ART medicine regularly is no way different from normal person in any way. Be brave You have not mentioned whether your VDRL report is negative or not. And there is swelling in groin suggests lymphadenopathy and mostly due to Syphills and There is history of mouth ulcer as Syphills can transmit through genital, anal and oral route also. So perform VDRL test again with FTA -TBS or TPPA. Consult a dermatologist for further follow up If you still have a doubt and need further assistance please contact.

Hello, Your USG report is important before giving any comments on baby's well-being. Is there growth seen in gestational sac, appearance of fetal node, yolk sac etc. Many times there is delayed conception. Wish you all the best.

Warning Signs Your Mouth Could Be Telling You This Summer!

Warning Signs Your Mouth Could Be Telling You This Summer!

Many warning signs of summer illnesses actually start in the mouth. Though no two patients experience the same constellation of symptoms, many initially report problems with thirst, dry mouth and dry tongue before the onset of more worrisome indicators.

However, other important signs of dehydration should not be overlooked. These include dry skin, fatigue, light-headedness, headache, dizziness, confusion and/or increased heart rate and breathing.

Drink up

The most important thing you can do to prevent summer heat illnesses is drink plenty of fluids. This is especially true if one has been outdoors working or playing in the sun. Establish a schedule and drink plenty of fluids at regular intervals. You should also be drinking even if you do not feel thirsty or dehydrated. For an extra push, drink solutions like Pedialyte or Gatorade. These help maintain electrolyte balance during extreme heat. Avoid alcohol consumption, as liquor often dehydrates the body and leaves it wanting of critical fluids.

I had sex yesterday. I used condom with her and after 3 hours I gave her unwanted 72 and after 6 hours she got nausea and fever and her body is achening and she is urinating in 30min gap. Help me out fast. What to do.

Unwanted 72 is high dose of hormone. May cause symptoms like nausea. But high frequency of urine may be due to urinary infection. Let her do a urine routine test.

It is common not to get period when breast feeding is going on. So during this time it is important to use reliable family planning method so that either you are not worried about pregnancy now and then or not to miss diagnosing pregnancy early.

Can Physiotherapy Help Balancing Hormone?

Can Physiotherapy Help Balancing Hormone?

Hormones such as oestrogen, testosterone, adrenaline and insulin are extremely important chemical messengers. The entire endocrine system works together to control the level of hormones circulating throughout body is slightly imbalanced it can cause widespread, major health problems.

Some specific problems associated with some of the most common hormonal imbalances include:

Estrogen dominance: Changes in sleep patterns, changes in weight and appetite, higher perceived stress, slowed metabolism polycystic 

Ovarian syndrome (pcos): Infertility, weight gain, higher risk for diabetes, acne, abnormal hair growth

Low estrogen: Low sex drive, reproductive problems, menstrual irregularity, changes in mood hypothyroidism: slowed metabolism, weight gain, fatigue, anxiety, irritability, digestive issues, irregular periods

Low testosterone: Erectile dysfunction, muscle loss, weight gain, fatigue, mood-related problems

Hyperthyroidism and grave’s disease: Anxiety, thinning hair, weight loss, ibs, trouble sleeping, irregular heartbeats

Diabetes: Weight gain, nerve damage (neuropathy), higher risk for vision loss, fatigue, trouble breathing, dry mouth, skin problems

Adrenal fatigue: Fatigue, muscle aches and pains, anxiety and depression, trouble sleeping, brain fog, reproductive problems here are three main tools to help achieve this enjoyable state of being: breathing exercises, quiet self-reflection, and exercise.

First, it should be understood that exercise is like medicine and is very specific for each person &most accessible tool for most people.

Effects of exercise on endocrine system - 

During exercise, the pituitary gland releases human growth hormone, which tells the body to increase bone, muscle and tissue production & thyroid gland sends out hormones that regulate the body's temperature, heart rate and blood pressure.

Exercises for the growth of hormone, bone, muscle tissue production and metabolic rate

Heavy weightlifting, stimulates the release of luteinizing hormone in brain which triggers testosterone production, also stimulates the release of thyroxine from thyroid gland. Testosterone and thyroxine speed up your metabolism so one can lose weight.

Exercise for luteinizing hormone, testosterone, thyroxine and weight reduction

Blood sugar insulin, a hormone transports blood sugar to muscles for energy. Excessive insulin reduces sensitivity to insulin & leads to diabetes. Exercise increases insulin sensitivity by its uptake by muscles. Blood insulin decreases after 10 minutes of aerobic exercise, and weight training increases sensitivity to insulin at rest.

Blood flow: Adrenal medulla releases epinephrine during exercise level increase at higher exercise intensities. This hormone controls amount of blood that heart pumps, also enhances ability to use muscles during exercise by widening blood vessels and muscles get more oxygen-rich blood.

Thyroxine hormone: Increases during exercise which increases amount of blood in body by about 30 %, and secretions might remain elevated for around five hours 

Psychological effects: Works as anti-depressant, exercise-induced testosterone might increase confidence and libido. Low testosterone levels might inhibit your motivation, self-confidence, concentration, memory.

Your pituitary gland produces endorphin (happy hormone) levels shortly after exercise begins. 

Activities for hormone health

Reduce sitting time: Most of us sit for far too long, but it just takes a few habit changes to make it less damaging to our health (and hormones)

Walk and talk: Instead of coffee shop meet up, arrange a walking meeting mobile walk with it set an alarm phone or computer to get up and take a quick break.

Find what kind of exercise and how much of it is best for maintaining a healthy hormone balance.

Free gym: Stairs, park, squats while you are watching tv walking out improves mood and feeling calmer.

HIIT: High intensity interval training (or ‘burst’ training) has been shown to burn fat more effectively than aerobic exercise. Good for strengthening lungs and heart, raises human growth hormone (hgh), the hormone, abundant when we are young, declines rapidly as we age. Improves insulin sensitivity, a great result for waistline and risk of serious disease.

Ask for metabolic aftershock programme to your physio :

Resistance and weights: Muscle mass declines with aging (at a rapid rate if no strength training done ever). The more muscle we have the more calories are burnt, day and night, reducing fat stores. High cortisol has a negative effect on muscle mass, so building muscle is really important if you’re over stressed. Not necessary to go to gym! weight training at home will helps. Fat / muscle ratio is what we are aiming to improve (note- you may not see weight loss if you are increasing muscle to fat).

Strength training also lowers risk of osteoporosis, especially at menopause.

Yoga and pilates- They improve flexibility, strength, posture, stress & mood. It’s the ultimate anti-ageing exercise! when one does yoga, focusing on the pose it is impossible to think about anything else, plus strengthening body at the same time is a great thing to do.

Relaxation technique- Stress, be it physical, emotional or environmental, can threaten a body's homeostasis. Certain endocrine glands secrete hormones that help the body respond to stress, but the function is meant to be short term. Extended secretion may weaken the body's defences, leaving room for infection, or even result in high blood pressure or a lack of cortisol and other steroid hormones. Long-term, this lack can lead to organ damage and even failure· 

Relaxation methods can include meditation activities such as walking, painting or knitting · anything calm and repetitive or focusing for a few minutes on breathing deeply or finding a quiet place to lie down and calm your heart beat. 

Sleep and hormone- Sleep is a good way to relax and calm down brain.

The amount of sleep you need to function best varies among individuals,

Adults -7 to 9 hr

Teens- 8.5 to 9.25 hr

Children- 5 to 10 - 10 to 11 hr

Preschoolchildren - 11 to 13 hr

Toddlersages 1 to 3 -12 to 14 hr

Infants- 14to 15 hrnew born -12 to 18 hr
