Medical Question

I have had hives for a few days. The hives have cleared, but I find that my legs ache terribly and I feel very tired, have no pep at all. I took Benedryl for a few days but nothing since yesterday. Is there a reason I feel so exhausted? Last week and all time previously, I am a very active person, golfing 5 days a week and going to the gym several days a week. The hives started on a driving trip of 1200 miles, and began with itchy fingers and eventually moved all over my body, even my lips were swollen. They seem to be gone now. Help please. I need my pep back.

Dear Thomas,

 

It would seem that your symptoms, though it would have initially started with hives due an allergic reaction, now seem to have extended to your heart. This is explained by the tightness in your chest and neck. Given your age and history of valvular disease, this is quite likely.

 

I would recommend that you get an ECG as soon as possible, and consult a cardiologist as soon as possible. Tiredness, difficulty in exercising and chest tightness in a person of your age are classical signs of ischemic heart disease.

 

It could also be that Benadryl might be causing some of your symptoms, as it is known to cause severe drowsiness and sleepiness.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further doubts

I have nipple rings. The one on my left healed just fine but the one on my right has always given me problems. First off it was pierced deeper than the one on my left. A couple times while cleaning and reinserting the bar, it would actually go into a pocked located to the right of my right nipple. Occasionally this same pocket would swell with puss and actually “pop” when squeezed. Most recently I have developed a very sensitive lump directly under my right nipple that secretes a clear discharge when squeezed. Both these lumps appear to be independent of one another however sometimes they are both present. I am not sure if they are all related or not at all. I don’t want to take the ring out without expert advice for fear of the piercing holes closing up and leaving whatever mess trapped inside. I am healthy, no drugs, casual alcohol consumption (10 beers/wk). I take men’s pro health multi vitamin, green coffee bean extract, vitamin C, and a small dose of apple cider vinegar daily.

Hi doctor, I would like to know why I'm having lower left abdominal pain and erectile dysfunction for 2 months?, it started when i had slipped disc in 2009. I had sucessful physiotherapy in a year. Then in 31 december 2013, i had back injury due to my work. I continued to do exercises until now. In november 2014, i had a bad dream and suffered lower left abdominal pain and erectile dysfunction. So u went to A&E and they told that maybe due to vack problem. It was no pain after a month. Suddenly, it happened again on march 2015 but that time it was very worst feeling. I had multiple pains such as chest, neck and stomach area. I went to Accident and emergency again because I was very worried. The doctor examine my blood, urine and x-ray and they found nothing. The doctor couldn't know. They gave some medication to cure my stomach area and no improvement. I need a help why i had this pain for 2 months? Thank you
