Dr. Love,I'm worrying about my creatinine level again. It is 1.05 and has been rising steadily for the past 2 years. My non-fasting glucose has been rising too. The oncologist said, I think, that if there is a spike in non-fasting glucose the creatinine responds to that and rises. Is that true?

hello, I was using the Neto bottle on Thursday. My ears then started to pop and have felt full since. Don't hurt. Tried decongestants, steam, pinching nose and blowing etc. I do suffer from anxiety and I have a few of those symptoms not sleeping choking sensation head pressure so not sure if I got water in ears from bottle or if it just triggered my anxiety?

I went to see an obgyn today for evaluation of a lumpy area

I went to see an obgyn today for evaluation of a lumpy area I found about 2 weeks ago in my vagina. My old gyn recently moved away and this practitioner was brand new to me (new practice as well as I changed jobs and the old practice was no longer convenient to work) so we don't have a rapport from past visits.What she found is that I had genital warts. I started sobbing and was a total basketcase. I have a long history of self confidence issues and sexual hangups and very limited sexual experience which for my age is rare. I am early 40s, a virgin until my early 30s and never had intercourse without a condom. (3 partners total). I did have genital contact (my parts rubbing their parts) with at most half a dozen guys I dated but not since my 20s. I thought i was being smart but clearly I was mistaken. Literally I haven't had ANY sexual contact for 7 years so to say I am devastated is no exaggeration. I'd rather have cancer than this. I feel so dirty and diseased and the shame is the worst.Does this mean I am sick in the larger scheme of things (immunocompromised because of something else at play)? I am stressed in a new job and a big home reno project but I've been through worse stress and this never happened. The doc prescribed Aldera cream. From what I am reading this may help but likely these may come back. Having this hang over my head for the rest of my life is the part that I don't know how to deal with. After these go away can I be followed up to check if the virus exists in my body? She mentioned improving my immune system with lysine and probiotics. I didn't think my immune system was in need of a boost so that freaks me out as well. Is there any benefit to tea tree oil or apple cider vinegar? (I tried applying that because the Aldara was a special order for my pharmacy and I did have tea tree oil in my medicine cabinet. Aldara will be here tomorrow and I will start that as well)I also need some advice regarding talking to any partners I might have in future. From what I read even symptom free they could catch this from me (condom or no) even get oral cancer from oral sex.I am sorry for all the questions but today I feel I was given a death sentence. Thanks for your help-

I have this blood filled looking lump near my glands just

I have this blood filled looking lump near my glands just below the head of my penis, I cannot figure out what it is. I took STD testing like a month or so ago and negative on all but Herpes type 1, which is common. I don't think it's that because it has grown a little over time, it's not a scab. Looks like a ruptured vessel or blood cloth of some sort, any idea what it could be?

The neurologist has not reviewed the results and will not until my follow up appt which Is not til Nov 1. I am in serious pain. Would it be beneficial to take my test results to a different neurologist. I've been told if the herniation ruptures I ccould have serious complications .

Pain in lower gut sometimes left side, sometimes the right.

Pain in lower gut sometimes left side, sometimes the right. Have had every entrance probed to no avail. Got shots in the belly which helped but did not heal. Went to er 3 weeks ago for coughing up blood, what they thought was pneumonia was actually cancer in upper left lung pressing on aortic valve so have began radiation and chemo. Gut continues to cause nearly insufferable pain.
