Dr David doesn't seem to be online. May I take your question?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Hi is Dr David not online ?
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
It's just he knows my background and history
Expert:  khagihara replied 3 months ago.

Okay. I will opt out.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 3 months ago.

This is Dr. David

you have too much wax in your ear.

you need to use ear drop softening drops in your ear

and go back to see your GP doctor to have the wax removed

you don't have an ear infection.

complete blood counts would have shown elevated WBC white blood cell counts if you had a bacterial infection through your body. you don't have a bacterial infection through your body.

you need to see your GP doctor to help get the wax out of your ear.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
But my white blood count was high is this because of the viral ? Or could it have been bacterial ? Also my lymph node is still so big on one side and I haven't been touching it at all
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Like they said I had norovirus but now I'm thinking maybe it was bacterial as my white blood count was high and CPR was high but it went down on my second blood tests would it still be up of it was bacterial ? Would the hospital have known if it was bacterial ?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 3 months ago.

viral infections can cause high white count.

lymph nodes can enlarge because of viral infection.

yes, your hospital would have known if you had a bacterial infection

you didn't and don't have a bacterial infection.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Ok .. I have a question regarding my mum Dr David shes had a couple of chest infections and been complaining of a cramping feeling in her upper back near her lung? She had an X-ray few months back which was clear what could be causing this pain feeling ?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 3 months ago.

she could have a strained muscle or pinched nerve.

why don't you have to write a question to me directly and I can help answer her questions

it is difficult to help a 3rd party when they can not answer questions directly.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I will do that then I was just worried about her you know what I'm like lol

Dr David I ate spicy food last night and this morning my stomachs really sore why is this ? I used to be able to eat spicy food without any issues is there anything I can take to help soothe it ?

Ok and what about the question I asked about pain under both my ribcages stomach ?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 3 months ago.

that most likely is due to too much stomach acid in your stomach or anxiety causing gastritis inflammation of your stomach.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Ok last thing Dr David im scared I have a blood clot as I have headache and pains in back neck and arm , would I know if I had blood clot ?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 3 months ago.

you are young at age 25

you would not get blood clots at your age

you are letting your anxiety get out of control with worry about blood clots.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I know I'm just worried because I work in an office on computer and im scared this will cause it because your like sitting a lot
Expert:  Dr. David replied 3 months ago.

sitting a lot at age 25 is not a risk factor for blood clots.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Ok and what about sore head and painful upper back at lung ? I just panic about serious things
Expert:  Dr. David replied 3 months ago.

severe anxiety, lack of exercise sitting for long periods of time can cause upper back pain and neck tension

you need to exercise more and stretch your muscles

you need to talk to your doctor about mediation treatment for your anxiety symptoms

or else you will continue to worry about something.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Dr David the mole I was concerned about on my back has changed again it's cut again why is this ? I will attach pictures I don't think a mole should be cut
Customer: replied 3 months ago.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I'll attach a picture of the way it was I honestly think something isn't right with this mole the way it's changing
Expert:  Dr. David replied 3 months ago.

it looks like a benign mole

you are letting your anxiety get out of control with worry about this mole.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
It is really worrying me why is it cut though? Can this happen?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 3 months ago.

you must have hit it or traumitized it by accident. this can happen.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
