Dr Brims :

Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek

Dr Brims :

When did the discharge start?

Dr Brims :

Do you have any fevers or chills?

Customer:

yes i do my head feels hot and i can not get warm

Customer:

i went to the bathroom just before i messaged you and seen it when i wiped but i have experienced it alot in the past

Customer:

i have had anal sex and thought it was related but i havent had anal sex for over a year now

Dr Brims :

Do you take any medication?

Customer:

i take gabapentin 800mg 2x a day and i do take 2 each time because of sever neuropathy

Customer:

and i take percocet one 2x day

Dr Brims :

Okay, so you have discharge and fevers?

Customer:

yes i have been sick flu like systems and also a virus for like the last 2 weeks or so

Customer:

the abdominal pain is almost like having a miscarriage

Dr Brims :

Any blood ?

Customer:

i have experienced 6 so i know the pain but i also have my tubes tied

Customer:

no

Dr Brims :

Okay, any pain with urinating?

Customer:

i have no energy and i have alot of headaches

Customer:

some thats why i got the anitbiotic for uti

Dr Brims :

How long have you been on the antibiotic?

Customer:

being diabetic i keep uti and yeast infection

Customer:

i was on it for ten days its been about a week since i have taken it

Dr Brims :

Have the symptoms improved since you started it?

Customer:

no not really a little with pain while peeing but i still have the abdominal pain and the nausia

Dr Brims :

Do you have any allergies to any medication?

Customer:

after i took the antibiotic i started with a sore throat then a few days later i got the blisters and as each day goes my mouth gets worse none that i am taking now i am allergic to latex, adhesive, a pain pill um i am tring to remember the name darvocet

Dr Brims :

Okay, this may be a yeast infection but it may require oral antifungal drugs like diflucan

Customer:

i have been taking levison spelling on that sorry

Customer:

ok my mom gave me some magic mouth wash it helps but for only like 20 min

Dr Brims :

Okay, you may continue it for now, or use salt water gargles

Customer:

and i was also wondering i have been taking alot of nyquil could that have something to do with my mouth

Customer:

so do you think that discharge is also yeast

Dr Brims :

If you are allergic to it it may have something to do with your mouth

Dr Brims :

It is white, correct?

Customer:

i have never been allergic before but i do take about every night trying to help with my pain and help me sleep so could i have given myself an allergic reaction takeing to much

Dr Brims :

It is unlikely you gave yourself an allergic reaction

Customer:

well i mean by taking to much of it

Customer:

i know that an allergic reaction can happen all of a sudden

Dr Brims :

Yes, it is possible

Customer:

so you think diflucan will help with all of it

Dr Brims :

Yes, I think diflucan will help most of your symptoms

Customer:

ok i will try thanks can you recommend anything else

Dr Brims :

Salt water gargles for your mouth

Dr Brims :

But if you continue to have fevers and chills then you will have to see a doctor eventually

Dr Brims :

Are you there?

Customer:

thanks i appreciate your help and time

Dr Brims :

You're quite welcome

Dr Brims :

If you have any other questions or concerns on this topic please feel free to ask

Customer:

Dr Brims :

Please remember to click a rating button prior to exiting the chat session if you have no other questions

Dr Brims :

ok

Customer:

do any of my systems sound like a possible std

Customer:

my husband passed in 2010 i did some things dealing with the grief i have since gotten remarried but was just a little concerned

Dr Brims :

The discharge could be due to an STD, but usually it is not white with an STD, it is usually yellow

Customer:

no mine is white a really clean white

Customer:

bright white

Dr Brims :

Okay, then it is not likely an STD

Customer:

ok thanks i have been tested regularly the last time was before i got married august i think i have only one partner my husband since april of last year we got married in september

Customer:

so i just wanted to be sure

Dr Brims :

You're welcome
