    Jumping Stomach

    My mother's stomach looks like it's going to jump out of her body sometimes. She doesn't have any pain and the doctors can't seem to figure it out. I was wonderful if anybody else has had this issue.

    Colon cancer and now other problems

    My husband just recently finished surgery and chemo for stage 3c colon cancer. Seems to physically starting to get better but is having increasing memory lapses and some confusion. He lost complete eye sight in one eye and experiences both blurriness and sometimes double vision in his good eye. Could this be what they call "chemo brain" or something worse. Will be seeing oncologist for check up in another month.

    Repeated muscle spasm and then eye twitching.

    Hello. About two weeks ago I started experiencing spasm to my right biceps. Every time I was keeping my biceps relaxed, it started having pretty frequent visible contractions. This kept going like this for about three days. Now, the biceps spasms are gone, but I am experiencing eye twitching, again, on the right side. This is the second day when my eye just randomly starts twitching. It will probably go away, but I don't know if I should ignore these spasms/twitches or not. I never experienced....

    Arm pain after blood donation

    Hey so I gave blood recently and the woman who took my blood missed the vein the first time and gave me a nice poke; I immediately had sharp pain in my wrist and up the left outer side of my inner arm. She said sometimes they hit a tendon/nerve center and acted like it was no bid deal, so I wasn't worried. But now, two days later, I can't let my arm hang loose at my side / fully extended it in any other way without the whole left side of my inner arm experiencing sharp pain. Has anyone else....

    Can you spread dementia/alzheimers through a kiss?

    I recently visited my Grandma with dementia at her memory care facility. When saying good-bye she kissed me on the lips. Is there any risk of spread through a simple kiss?
  • Dizziness after hitting head

    I hit the left side of my head pretty hard and initially heard a high-pitched noise and then had some trouble hearing. I fell asleep (it was night time). When I woke up, my hearing was fine, but I was dizzy each time I sat up or got up. It only lasted a few seconds each time. I also felt nausea but did not throw-up. It's been almost 24 hours, and I'm only dizzy once every few hours, and my stomach is fine. My husband thinks I should go to a doctor, but I think I'm getting better and will....

    Migraine with strange array of symptoms causing worry

    I've been having a very odd migrane today full of countless new symptoms. Headache on left front side with a crazy visual aura, took zomig, hour later took ibuprofen 600, albuterol sulfate and Ritalin. Cold and hot feeling across skin, mostly on right side, nausea, joint pain, burning pain in abdomen and chest, dizzy, tired and short of breath. Migrating sharp pains across body. Ringing ears. Vision is unnaturally blurry. Chest and stomach symptoms worsen when laying down, head symptoms worsen....

    Aneurysm symptoms before a rupture?

    Need some advice, as I'm going out of my mind with panic today. Last Sunday, my nose and upper lip went numb. Don't recall exactly when it started. I know I sneezed really hard with my mouth shut and felt extremely light-headed suddenly. Could've been after that? Don't recall. Throughout the week or eventually spread to my bottom lip, but no further. It's not totally numb, just very decreased sensitivity. I went to an ENT due to drainage from a previous illness. He shrugged it....

    Muscle spasms, weakness, anxiety

    Hello, Two and a half months ago I started getting a lot of twitching in both my thumbs, it would alternate and would rarely be both at the same time. That lasted for 3 weeks. Then, the twitching moved to my arms and around my shoulders, then it moved to my lower abdomen and legs not too long after that. I've also gotten it in my face. Now, I get these spasms periodically in my arms, face and legs, though my thumbs and abdomen are fine now. Along with this, I've felt weakness in my arms,....
