- With a history of squamous cancer and pilonidal cyst and neuro issues should i be concerned ?
I have had a long history of bleeding from above anus, neuro issues like brain tingle and cognitive movement disorder, lumbar pain and weakness, buttock, groin, leg tingling and weakness. Cold feet. Anemic. My concern is this bleed from previously repaired pilonidal cyst has been chronic for years. My research indicates squamous cell cancer is an 80% causative factor in chronic pilonidal irritation/cyst. Since I was diagnosed w squamous nail bed in 2012, amputation 2014, should I be concerned. ? Doctor is unaware of cyst / bleed history. I am obese, but remarkably losing weight ... Loss of appetite. I am positive for esophageal metaplastic changes. Also urinary incontinence mild. Obviously I am concerned about metastatic cancer. No pain in lower spine. Just constant leg and buttock ache / tingle. I thought bleed was hemorrhoids. Not. Ca the mortician ?? Lol. Thanks for any input.

- Lasix with low blood pressure
Hello My Medical Family,
My mom has been in ICU for over a month now. She has been on lasix for over 6 years now and for two nights the hospital has not given her lasix. I can see her legs and arms puffy filled with liquids and it makes me so sad to see moms in this pain. Dr kept telling us that her blood pressure was too low for them to give her lasix but for the past 3 hrs her readings are 114/55. Im just so torn knowing that she has her own meds of lasix at home that i can bring to her. Can someone out there please help? So thankful to have a forum like this to express our concerns knowing they would be helped.

- Lymphadenopathy from milk of magnesia?
I was constipated for 10 days with no relief from prune juice or stool softeners. During this time an aching pain developed in my right hip and right lower back. I drank 3 tbs of Milk of Magnesia for two days and it alleviated my constipation. The hip and lower back pain started to go away too. Soon after taking Milk of Magnesia, a lymph node became swollen and very painful in my right arm pit.
- Constipation due to nyquil
Very bad constipation. Had lower stomach pains for days
- Low potasium and mood
While being treated for cancer about 3 years ago and thus taking a number of blood tests, I was diagnosed with low potassium level and prescribed a regular dosage. I had noticed that when I forgot to take my potassium pills, I soon began to feel more depressed than usual and to feel anxious. Taking the ills soon alleviated these symptoms. (I have had depression for most of my life but long ago decided against taking any of the anti-depression Rx pills because I disliked their side effects, especially on my ability to think clearly.) Very recently I finally got around to looking on the Internet to see whether low potassium was associated with mood disorders _ and I found that it was. This site apparently didn't study anyone my age (I'm 78), so I decided to offer these comments. I have at least one grandchild who has been formally diagnosed with depression, and one who is ADHD. Before finding that the relationship of mood and low potassium was formally known, I had suggested to their parent in a low-key way that perhaps she and they should check with their doctors about their potassium levels. Now I'm quite sure that is something they and their doctors should consider. Meanwhile, I am glad to have found formal study of what had been to me only an anecdotal kind of belief that the two were linked. More importantly, in all my years of doctor visits, no doctor and no psychologist has ever mentioned this link to me. Therefore, I hope that somehow this link is brought more to the forefront of medical attention.
- Cardio version caused fingernail abnormalities
Right hip fracture. When prepping for surgery AFIB was found. Surgery was cancelled and they attempted to get AFIB under control. Finally, cardioversion was performed. When my nails started to grow out they all had two horizontal lines that cause the nail to break when it grows out to that point.
