    Fibromyalgia and NSAID allergy

    I was diagnosed last year with fibromyalgia. I am repeatedly told to take NSAIDs for the pain and inflammation. I get hives and an upset stomach from them so am unable to. I have tried tramadol but it gives me migraines. I am sensitive to aspirin as well. Acetametaphin does not really work either. I'd be better off eating sawdust at this point. Anti-depressants thus far have made me aggressive, given me gut rot or are just not hitting the mark. Alprazolam is at a minimal daily dosage and not....

    Reoccurring nasal pain on left side of nose causing headaches, what could this be?

    one side of nostril hurts and gets swollen causing headaches on and off for months now.

    Cellulitis - Heat or Cold, can't find a straight answer?

    Sorry couldn't find an appropriate category for discussing infections and this seemed most appropriate among the available categories. Question: While taking antibiotics and keeping the infected area elevated, is it best to accompany it with heat or cold compress to the affected area? Should we just leave it alone? We've been told conflicting answers between 2 visits to the ER and can't find anything definitive on the web. History: My wife was given a Tetanus shot 4 days ago and within....

    Possible noseeum bug bites

    I have welts on both upper arms and back of neck. I am taking Benedryl and using their cream on the welts. I am concerned because I take Imuran because of a neurological condition and because of my depressed immune system will I get worse symptoms.

    Itching Sensation

    Hi there. I've had the following problem for a while now (+- 2 years) but I haven't done anything about it as I thought it would probably just go away over time. It sounds crazy; but I get this intense itch on the inside of my face (on the piece of jaw next to my ear & directly underneath my ear - almost as if it was in my ear canal). It sometimes becomes unbearable. It's not an​ itch on the surface and therefore I have to roughly rub the area in order to relieve the sensation which....

    Throats swells randomly?

    For the majority of this year (2017) my throats will swell up randomly.? I haven't noticed a pattern of why and I've not been having an allergic reaction, but the only thing I know that is related to a swollen throat is an allergic reaction which I haven't been having, I don't even have to eat anything for this to happen. There is no pattern when this happens. Is there something else that could be causing it? I've tried taking allergy medicine to help the swelling but it doesn't....

    What are these bumps on my little brothers arm?

    My little brother woke up this morning with all these bumps on his left arm. He says they don't hurt, or itch, so I don't think it's bed bugs. He seems fine, but I would just like to know the origin of these bumps. If anyone knows what they might be please let me know, thanks!
