HIV :: ARS Rash And Fever

Dec 30, 2015

I had unprotected oral sex when she was menstruating (tampon used) and also received oral sex. I am not sure with how many people she sleeps with.  for intercourse condom was used. Condom was tested for no breakage later.

Now after two weeks I have epididymitis inflammation and hence lot of pain on my left testicle. I have given urethral swab for test of chlamydia and also urine for test.  I am waiting for results. I am taking ciprofloxacin and it already helped reduce pain on my testicle after two doses.

now i have been having mild fever (37.5 - 38.4)  ever since i started having the pain (two weeks after the exposure). also i have 3-4 rashes , dark purple (only one of them is big to the size of a bed bug) between my shoulder and elbow on my left arm. rest of the body seems fine.

irrespective of the probability that I may have caught chlamydia, is there any worry for HIV?

I was pregnant with my first child when the following happened;

- at 27 wks began to have multiple lymph nodes swollen along both sides of my neck

- low grade fever which was controlled by taking a paracetamol

- dark urine color

- at 28 wks I was admitted to hospital and started to have severe oedema

- blood results showed my uric acid, creatine and alk phosphate, ferritin, c-reactive were high - with WBC critically high

- Hemoglobin, RBC, platelet, Albumin was low

- I had difficulty breathing (constant heart rate of 135), a scan of my heart showed it was lacking liquid

- blood pressure was fine

- Baby was taken out via c-section at 28.5 weeks where my condition worsened before starting to get better

- in the month after baby was taken out I continued to have low grade fever and developed a rash

- My blood work returned to normal in 2 months after being admitted to hospital with steroids

The doctors never found out what the cause was, please advise if you have heard of a similar case?

Levothyroxine Sodium :: Heat Rash, Allergies, Hay Fever Symptoms

I have been taking Levothyroxine for about 8 months now and since then I seem to be suffering from increasing allergies. I already suffered with Hay Fever during the months of May and June but suddenly I started being allergic to my rabbits. I knew I was allergic to their hay but not the rabbits themselves. The doctor gave me an inhaler for when I needed to use it if I inhaled some of the rabbit fur as I found I was struggling to breath. I then started to be very sneezy at night and in the mornings sometimes sneezing up to about 15 times which is quite wearing. Then my skin started to start feeling really itchy all the time. I went to the doctor and he said that it should not be down to the levothyroxine and prescribed me some antihistamines to take to see if that settled the allergies. I am now getting a heat rash which seems to appear when I exert some energy. I am not talking about a great deal of energy though just a brisk walk or so and the rash starts on my chest and raises up past my ears. Today the rash was even on my legs and my fingers swelled so much that I had to quickly remove my jewellery. Has anyone else experienced this?

Viral Infections :: Fever Broke And I Woke Up Sweating With A Red Rash

Last night I started getting a cold, so I took a shower and went to bed. On the middle of the night my fever broke and I woke up sweating really badly. Well I noticed an itchy sensation by my pubic area and when I looked I had a red rash all on my pubic area up to parts of the hair on my stomach. I even have a small rash on my thigh. It looks like it's only where hair is at. It is like bright red and it feels like it might have something in it, like you can feel the rash. I was hoping you could give me an idea of what it is?

HIV Prevention :: Persistent Sore Throat, Not Strep, No Fever Or Rash?

Almost exactly 30 days ago I had unprotected insertive vaginal sex with a woman I might categorize as low risk.  Until this encounter I have only been with my wife (high school sweethearts).  The woman in question is from northern Minnesota, white, in her 40s.   I'm also in my 40s, white, also from rural Minnesota.  For the past three weeks I've had sore throat, slightly swollen lymph nodes on my neck.   No fever, no rash.  Checked for strep, came back negative.   I've confessed to my wife who appears willing to stay with me.   I'm scheduled for HIV testing next week (4th generation).   I have an appointment with ENT, but not for another month.   In the meantime my anxiety level is quite high....I don't necessarily feel fatigued, or flu like.   But the last couple of days my appetite has disappeared, which may be due to the anxiety.   I am worried because the sore throat and slightly swollen lymph nodes have lasted this long without knowing the cause....Can't be cold, shouldn't last this long.   Allergies?  I take Zyrtec every day and seem pretty clear.   Not much sinus congestion at all.  Tonsillitis?   One does appear a bit enlarged.  All of a sudden?   Seems coincidental.   Near panic as I wait for my test....any possible reassurance to help get me through this weekend?  Mono perhaps?

Menopause :: Do Mild Hot Flashes Feel Like You Have A Fever Without A Fever?

Rhinitis Or Hay Fever ?

The symptoms first started 9 years ago when I found out I was pregnant and were quite severe throughout my pregnancy (symptoms such as runny itchy eyes that feel dry at the same time, very fast flowing runny nose that drips, sneezing fits, loss of smell, headaches, lack of energy). the symptoms then began to fade away as the years went by but have came back with a vengeance over the past 12 months, it makes working hard and stops me from doing normal day to day things as I feel like going and locking myself away.

I will be visiting my Dr in the next week to tell him that it is not hayfever that it is infact rhinitis and I want something done about it.

Hay Fever Tablets Vs Injections

My husband suffers from Hay Fever quite badly. He takes one Hay Fever tablet in the morning and then another at night. He then has his nasal spray which he takes everyday as well as eye drops to stop them from itching.

Also to help keep the pollen off his skin he will take 3-4 showers a day.

I have tried to convince him to at least try the Hay Fever injection but he says it is too dangerous and can cause heart problems.

The fact that he doses his system up on the tablets, sprays and eye drops everyday can't be healthy either!

Does anyone know of where I can find information to try and convince my husband that what he is doing isn't that great for him either?

FMF - Familial Mediterranean Fever

i have been suffering from this debilitating Chronic disease all my life, I was diagnosed  back in 2006 by a gene test. Ever since I was put on a disability pension. I suffer from recurrent episodes of high fever and pain in all my joints, my life is made of pain, and with at least twice a month sometimes even more often I get high flares.

nothing I was given by my GP that really helped. I may have few hours of the day at times that I feel normal, this is when I take advantage of the time to do housework chores. My husband who was my carer was there for me, helping me on my daily progress, since he passed away (15 month ago) on a stroke I have been suffering even more, emotionally and physically. 

Since September last year, I have been chased by Centrelink, who's telling me that back at the time they accepted my application for the disability I didn't have enough evidence to become eligible for that and had had made a mistake, so they asked me to bring evidence from specialist to do so, it was the time just before xmas.

now everyone knows that to get appointments with various specialists take time. Before I was able to see one, Centrelink had cut me off, I have appealed, and now waiting for the tribunal decision. In the meantime I have evidence from some specialists.

but from the ones that I was gone through the government system to see a specialist in the local hospital, it 5 month for the first appointment, then 2 month to do ct scans and xrays. Now I've been waiting another 2 month hoping to hear from them before coming may which is my tribunal day in May 18. a Doctor called me this morning asking if I have left a message in the hospital about the results of the scans, he said, your scans looking fine, only the liver is fattened, nothing about my debilitating disease or if I'll have another chance to see the specialist so they can advice me about my FMF problems. I'm shattered and so disappointed, he hardly finished talking to me and his beeper was buzzing, he continued saying sorry, I have emergency and was gone. Where am I standing here? What kind of treatment is this, I've been waiting now for at least 7 month to see and talk to specialist and this is what I get. I need a written results for Centrelink and I'm feeling lost. I don't know what to do. This is just a joke. Please help me to understand and get some wisdom here as I'm lost in this government system.

Menopause :: Fever Related To Perimenopause?

I had an upper respiratory issue a few weeks back and am pretty much over it, but a week after the worst of it I started running a low grade fever almost every evening. My face and neck feels really hot like the heat is just radiating off it and I want to fan myself. I otherwise don't feel bad, not like I usually do when I have a low grade fever when sick, I just feel hot. My normal temps runs around 97.5 and I know that temps are lower in the mornings and can go up in the afternoons but I have never had it like this. It has been about 98.6, 98.8 and today it has been 99.3. But like I said, it isn't like a sick fever, and it is mostly my face and neck area that feels so hot. It starts every afternoon around 3pm.

Does anyone else experience anything like this? Could it be related to perimenopause? My cycle is really messed up right now.

Hemorrhoids :: Severe Pain And Fever

I believe a have a hemorrhoid. There is a rather large, hard bump under the skin just forward on the anal opening (1/2 inch) and a little to the left side. It started about 5 days ago with a slight irritation. Two days ago the bump grew and it became uncomfortable to sit. Yesterday and today the pain is unbearable. I have trouble turning in bed, sitting up, sitting on the toilet, or just moving about. This morning I noticed pinkish fluid discharge and I thought the hemorrhoid burst. The pain is even worse and I have trouble urinating and I have a fever. I've had this before in the past and it always burst and the pain went away immediately. However, this time it's a little different. Could it be something more than a typical hemorrhoid? I'm in Thailand and the medical quality is, well, I rather be back home at this time.

Low Grade Fever Three Weeks Post ALIF (l5/s1)

I had surgery exactly three weeks ago. I developed a fever (99.9-101.8) in the hospital two or three days post op. They gave me antibacterial iv and oral meds from the surgery on. As I developed the fever, they gave me antiviral medication to treat a huge and painful fever blister I developed just two days after surgery thinking that this sore was the culprit. The fever had gone down to low grade but now i'm concerned because it does not want to go away. Im taking Norco and the tylenol in it keeps the fever below low grade but when I don't take Norco ( which i take less and less) the fever and chills/ night sweats keep returning. It is generally starting at noon or afternoon, almost always present in the evenings. Usually 99.5-100.5.

Im very worried that it can be some kind of a stubborn infection. I'm three weeks after surgery, i should not have a temp at all. Plus I'm not fever prone, i hardly ever had a fever in my life, flu or any other illness i pull thru with no temps.
