Good Morning ~ Okay you need to be a biochemistry expert to know the answer to this questions and even if I explained it to you I believe that you will not be able to understand since you do not seem to be from a medical background. I think you should be glad that you are HIV negative and not get into any further HIGH RISK sexual behavior in the future. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment for confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate

Physiotherapy, weight reduction, and guided exercise is the way to go. Also neural pain can be effectively relieved by medication. Also if your mother is diabetic, make sure her sugar is in control. Get her vit b12 levels checked. Deficiency can exacerbate such symptoms. Medicines like gabapentin and pregabalin are effective. Consult with a good neurologist.

Hi, dear thanks for your query to lybrates. In the given scenario-you needs to have physical examination to assess the cause of the chronic or recurring type of constipation for your age, which is not disclosed from your query facts. Follow the following action plan- do's- take more fluids (2 liters at least with normal working conditions) and do morning walks. Avoid non-veg or spicy and fried diet. Be on spinach soup x 2 times a day x1 week. Take banana milk shakes x 2 days to see if you get the motions with loading your bowels. Check with surgeon / family doctor- for proctoscopy to assess cause of ano-rectal diseases in your case. Rule out causes of ibs-irritable bowell syndrome- causing constipation in your case. In the given scenario of your case-above treatment plan is suggested for your case. It would take lot of efforts on above lines, as fungal infections are known to recur and contagious also.

Hi Lybrate user, this discharge could be due to vaginal infection or it could be some hormonal change. Await period for 2-30 days if it doesn't come then get a urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy.

Hello, if symptoms are sneezing, running nose, blocked nose 1. Take proper rest/ lot of fluids 2. Take proper home made diet. 3. Steam inhalation carefully by steam inhaler twice a day for 2-3 days continuous cold may be because of many reasons like: 1. Any ENT problem like DNS, polyp, sinusitis 2. Low immunity 3. Allergic condition like Allergic Rhinitis so you need to consult ENT doctor for proper examination and further management.

Up in the morning with a swollen right upper eyelid and cheeks on right side only. No pain or discomfort in the eye. Went to a doc he gave me the following Ivepred, LCZ, Topicid and asked to avoid sunlight. I have never had this no asthma what could this be? Some home remedies he suggested none. I had home cooked fish last night and I hv had that before. Could it be a good allergy I also had sprouts. I have never reacted to fish I also got henna done in my hair though not the first time yesterday!

Basically you are suffering from hyperhidrosis-------------although neurological, metabolic, and other systemic diseases can sometimes cause hyperhidrosis, most cases occur in people who are otherwise healthy. Heat and emotions may trigger hyperhidrosis in some, but many who suffer from hyperhidrosis sweat nearly all their waking hours, regardless of their mood or the weather.---------------your high metabolic rate can be due to your emotional nature or some medical condition, if you have any---------------------- homoeopathic medicine--------- r-32 drops (dr reckeweg) drink 10 drops in 20 ml fresh water 3 times daily--------------- drink plenty of fluids-------------
