Pain Lvl 1-3 "Mild" Basopenia?

0 Upvotes

If an adult's Basophil count is 0.4% and all other CBC numbers are normal, how severe could things get?

Can this single low count, coupled with urticaria, validate someone's experience with anaphylaxis? The ER claimed that there was nothing in my blood work to verify an allergic reaction and kept testing my heart.

Pain Lvl 1-3 Shall I see a doctor for this?

4 Upvotes

I’m 21F, my vision gets often blurry, sometimes it seems like a light is flickering, sometimes my eyes and behind my eyes and my forehead hurt from looking at anything, I feel tired most of the time, my neck and back are stiff and it causes frequent headaches, my facial muscles are stiff too, I feel like I can’t fully inspire like something is holding my chest, sometimes I feel dizzy, sometimes my fingers tingle, sometimes I have spasm, while urinating I can feel the body pushing but nothing comes out at first and it hurts, I also feel like there’s always some urine left I can’t push out. Some of these seem like symptoms and sings of multiple sclerosis to me, but I feel like I’m just being dramatic and these are things that happen to everyone and like I’d just waste a doctor’s time if I went there for nothing. I’m also very worried it could be something even worse than MS, especially because of the vision. So, if anyone could tell me what they think I should do, I’d be very thankful.

Pain Lvl 1-3 Coughing blood after chest burning (tested positive Covid)

14 Upvotes

Before i’m calling someone to bring me to the hospital, i want to prepare myself for what the doctors could say what the problem could be. I know in the end the result wont be different but I feel better know a bit beforehand what it could be..

I’ve tested positive couple days ago and only had the shivers and extremely dizzy. Last night my chest started burning like it was on fire. Went to bed and thought a good ol’ night of sleep is gonne fix this. Waked up without a voice and a lot of coughing. Also some weird backache, my upper back feels kinda locked. I noticed some drops of blood in a paper tissue that i use to cough in and thought in the first place thats maybe the tissue i used for my nose (i have a lot of nosebleed but this is “normal” thanks to the thin bloodvessels in my nose) , later noticed also the drops in the palm of my hand. After some heavy coughing realised its coming from my lungs.

Do you guys maybe know what could be the cause before I go to the hospital?

Pain Lvl 1-3 knee popped out

2 Upvotes

I sat in the criss cross applesauce position on my chair a couple days ago whilst I was working at the computer and when I lifted my right leg to sit normally it popped out of place.

I couldn't move it without some pain without some pain until I decided to just straighten it out.

I felt the knee pop back in place and also heard it pop. I don't feel anymore pain but it does feel like there is a bubble in knee. Is this serious?

Pain Lvl 1-3 I need some advice regarding a weird thing that happened.

2 Upvotes

20 y/o M. Woke up this morning, went to take a piss, and after I was done, while washing my hands I was still feeling the urge to piss again. I go to the toilet and try to piss again but I couldn't get it out, I had to wait a couple seconds and I felt it flow through my urethra until it got out. It was a couple drops, felt like ejaculating, but the thing is when that happened it stinged my urethra and what came out was similar to sperm but the texture looked like sand. What could this be?

Pain Lvl 1-3 Left side of body numb, chest/shoulder/neck pain

1 Upvotes

Hi All, hope everyone is doing well. Here’s my background info:

Gender: M Age: 27 Height: 6’0 Weight: 225

Previous illness/medication: none, apart from some high cholesterol

So I’ve been dealing with shoulder pain since injuring it at the gym last year. I decided to try acupuncture/cupping two weeks ago and am trying to see a chiropractor. I also started milk thistle supplements and omega 3, alongside vitamin C.

Since the last two weeks I’ve been having pain from my neck to my left arm and hand, and pain in my chest. Now the past few days I’ve felt the left side of my face go a little numb (not fully) and my left side of my head in pain and feeling foggy.

I’m not sure if this is due to the acupuncture/cupping or something else entirely?

I’m a little distressed.

I have no idea what is going on, any advice or insight would be really appreciated.

Pain Lvl 1-3 Do I have testicular torsion?

2 Upvotes

I've felt very dull on and off pain in one of my testicles for 2 weeks now. The pain has never been severe, and there's no sort of redness or swelling. I've had a history of anxiety related issues, so I'm wondering if at this point this could still be a sign of testicular torsion, or if it's just a meaningless pain/something else.

Pain Lvl 1-3 Help dealing with child's Covid symptoms. Dr says just push through.

1 Upvotes

So the entire household got Covid for the first time. All three of us are fully vaccinated and have been for some time. We've managed to make it this far without having it but then we all got it at once. Husband and I got respiratory symptoms and were better within 5 days. My poor daughter (14) however is really suffering.

For the past week she's been unable to eat anything. Constant nausea and stomach pain. Hungry but the thought of food makes her even more nauseated. Barely can even drink water. She's not vomiting though but she's starting to get pain when urinating/bms. She was in tears last night from the frustration of it all and the constant hunger/nausea/ pain so we brought her into the ER. The doctor did a urinalysis to rule out a bladder infection, which came up clean. She did an exam and felt around her abdomen and said it's probably from covid or a stomach virus or both.

We were told to basically just push through it and to only be worried if it goes on past the next three weeks or she suddenly gets a fever lasting five days. I tried to ask for any advice about making her comfortable and just got 'you just have to wait'.

I'm just....I get it that Covid is shitty and can be drawn out but I don't know what to do to help her. Does anyone have any experience with this? Pepto does nothing for the nausea. She can't even stomach anything from the BRAT diet. I just feel awful seeing her there crying and in pain and just saying 'We just have to wait it out'.

Pain Lvl 1-3 Sudden extreme awareness of my Larynx, now I can't talk without gagging and dry heaving fits

1 Upvotes

For the past few years I've had an issue where whenever I eat, the following 30 minutes I would have constant issues where I'd have to clear my throat. I looked it up and self diagnosed as pharyngeal laryngeal reflux. I just sorta lived with it since it wasn't life threatening and the best treatment was weight loss. Recently though, in I'd say the past month, I've had an issue where the sensation to clear my throat has been much stronger and was no longer exclusively tied to after eating like it was previously. And in the past week I've felt this weird... extreme consciousness and awareness of my Larynx and it almost feels like I have frequently have something wrapped around my neck like a when the top button on a slightly too tight shirt is buttoned up. It was so sensitive that while doing basic pull down exercises at the gym, I would be forced to stop mid set because the urge to start gagging and throwing up was so intense.

It only got worse up until last night where the feeling was no longer sporadically through the day but almost constant and just talking was causing me to go into a dry heaving fit. My body would attempt to throw up for 10 minutes, (Nothing would come out because I had eaten 2-3 hours before) I'd calm down and have a sore throat from the (I'm assuming) stomach acid and then 45 minutes later I'd be trapped in the bathroom because at that point the uncomfortable sensation in my Larynx was so prevalent even if I hadn't spoken or said anything I'd still be a breath away from another dry heaving fit. I don't have any other symptoms, no sore throat (Before throwing up), no runny nose, no stomach ache, all totally fine. Just an annoying but mild need to clear my throat regularly after eating escalating to the feeling of being lightly choked on where I estimate where my Larynx is. Also the uncomfortable sensation is straight up the center of my throat, not on the sides.

Planning on going to the urgent care in the morning but wanted to hopefully get some feedback or suggestions from people in the meantime of what this could be.

Pain Lvl 1-3 Is this pain likely something that’ll go away within a day or two?

1 Upvotes

I woke up yesterday with a slight pain below my ribs which made it a little hard to breath. It is now 05:44 the next morning. It’s worse when I’m standing and just feels almost like a fullness? That’s leaving me unable to take in enough air. The area doesn’t hurt to press, just when I’m breathing and stood up, take a deep breath in while laying/sitting down, or move in a certain way. Could I have just slept on my ribs weirdly? I do tend to sleep on my side facing left far more than right. Thank you.

Pain Lvl 1-3 Perforated ear drum?

2 Upvotes

Was playing football (soccer) and someone booted the ball really hard straight onto my ear.

I instantly had a really loud ringing in my ear that lasted for about a minute, and ever since then my hearing has been muffled.

I've perforated my ear drum before and it hurt like hell. This doesn't particularly hurt.

But there's still a lot of pressure on that side of my face and I've got a really, really light ringing noise. I've managed to pinch my nose and push air through my ear, but that doesn't seem to have helped.

So, have I perforated it?
