    Lymph nodes for months??

    I am a 21 year old, female, fairly heathly besides anxiety. This past winter, in February, I came down with a bad case of the flu. I went to the emergency room twice to receive fluids and to get tested. The doc reassured me that it was indeed influenza. During this sickness I developed two swollen lymph nodes on each side of my neck. They are the size of a pea, if not smaller. I went back to the doctor and he told me this was normal and I was fine. Here it is, May, and they are still there. I have....

    OAB problems!

    So, I recently got the diagnosis of OAB, IC, and a "low and distended" bladder about a month ago.. Understandably, at 21, I am not too happy. I was put on Detrol, which is great, because it works. I am able to not pee for 2, 2.5 hours. However, I recently started a new job, and it seems to be WORSE there. I am back to going every hour or so when I'm there. Can anyone help me out? I can feel my bladder spasming while I'm there. I am not in a job where I get the luxury of leaving....
  • Hormone therapy updates

    Hi to everyone in the menopause community! Just wanted to let everyone know that there will likely be a new set of guidelines from the US Preventative task force folks, regarding hormone therapy.

    Help! What is this..?

    So.. Almost two months ago I had my period for about 2 weeks, on and off, which was strange to me considering I only ever have it for about 4-5 days. Then, after it stopped, I didn't get my period until last night (I woke up in the middle of the night and found I was bleeding a little). When I woke up, I went to take the tampon out. When I did.. blood poured all over my hand and these two little, goopy, jelly-like things popped out after the tampon. Has anybody ever had this happen or know what....

    Endometrial Cells on Pap

    Hello, I got a Pap smear a week and a half ago and the nurse-practitioner just called me with results. She said the Pap was normal, but there were endometrial cells present (she didn't say they were abnormal or anything, but I didn't directly ask). I am 25 y/o and have an IUD, and had a normal Pap smear 1.5 yrs ago. When the nurse took the Pap, she said I was bleeding a little. Even though the last day of my period was 20 days before, this spotting is fairly normal for me and has been since....

    irregular menstrual

    Hi. I am having issues with long periods. Its been over a year now. I went to the gyn and she found nothing wrong. Pap, biopsy and ultrasound found nothing wrong. She said the lining of my uterus was little thick but not abnormal. I do have PSOC. The problem persisted so she put me on birth control but what she gave me made it worse. My periods went from long and light to every two weeks of bleeding heavy or mid cycle bleeding. I stopped taking them because it was making me bleed to heavy. What can....

    Nausea and lightheadedness

    Is it normal to feel nauseated lightheaded from a lot of different scenarios? It happens when a graphic scene comes on a medical or crime show that shows blood and such, or when I've had blood tests, or try to donate blood (I've tried but have never made it through without fainting), it happens if people even talk too descriptively about wounds and blood, it happened when I tried to use tampons (I never use them), and I got my first pap smear last year and when the doctor was swabbing me....
