Anthony Bray MD : Hello again!
Customer: Sorry for being bothersome
Anthony Bray MD : symptoms of PID usually would include a vaginall purulent ( infected appearing/ yellowish discharge)
Anthony Bray MD : you would usually expect pelvic pain and it is a classic sign if it hurts to stand up....
Anthony Bray MD : sexual intercourse would be very painful....
Anthony Bray MD : you may or may not have fever depending on the severity of the infection... Severe PID would have fever....
Customer: I went to my dr a week ago yesterday with green thick discharge. Ge did a wet prep was negative for everything but an overabundance of WBCs. He did a gc/chlamydia urine test which was negative. Over that weekend i experienced intense pain down there and itching. On monday i saw the dr on call who started me i
Anthony Bray MD : you should have an elevated WBC on your CBC with neutrophils subtype predominant....
Customer: on 1gm azithromycin becsuse i was having symptoms and my fiance cheated on me
Anthony Bray MD : nausea is a possible sign but not near 100%....
Customer: The azithromycin didnt help so on wednesdsy he rxed me metronidazole gel. So far that hasnt helped. I have intense pain to just even wipe down there
Anthony Bray MD : Aziithromycin regimen may typically take care of GC and chlamydia but would not be strong enough to take care of advanced PID...
Anthony Bray MD : GC / and chlamydia are the most common causes of PID but other infections and even non STDs are possible....
Anthony Bray MD : Use of tampons can increase risk of toxic shock syndrome....
Anthony Bray MD : Advanced PID MAY need IV antibiotic course to bring it under control IF this is what you have....
Anthony Bray MD : on exam I would expect that a pelvic exam would make this diagnosis clear....
Anthony Bray MD : blood count should show elevated WBC by now if this is a bacterial infection....
Anthony Bray MD : PID would NOT be viral ....
Customer: I cant see anything you wrote after i typed what i typed
Anthony Bray MD : I hope this helps! Let me know if you have further questions! Let me know how your progress is. I hope that you feel better soon.
Anthony Bray MD : Take care!

I have crampy pain in my pelvic area, still have discharge and quite a bit of pain. Im 5 days late for my period
Hello again!
It does sound that you have symptoms consistent with possible PID a pelvic exam should be done to help confirm the diagnosis. ALSO CRITICALLY IMPORTANT TO RULE OUT ECTOPIC PRENANCY!!
You still are in need of follow up evaluation and ongoing treatment.
I hope this helps! Let me know if you have further questions!
Best Regards!!

Ive had 3 pregancy tests in the last week all negative. Wouldnt an ectopic pregnancy turn a pregnancy test positive? Wouldnt it have shown up on a ct? Btw i talked to my dr and he said to just keep trying to push fluids
Hello again!
Yes a pregnancy test would be positive with an ectopic pregnancy so this should rule out this potential problem.
Your doctor has the advantage of knowing you and having examined you. That being said I can't help but to stick to my opinion that you need further evaluation and treatment. Ultimately use your best judgment and common sense! My point of view is limited to what you tell me but I remain concerned with several aspects of your illness. Has your urine cleared up? That would be reassuring to an extent. Less pelvic pain would be a step on the right direction. The reduction of fever would be a positive sign. The better you tolerate oral fluids would be reassuring--- you can follow your weight to help judge short term fluid changes.
I hope this helps! Let me know if you have further questions! I will be happy to get back with you!
Best Regards,
Anthony Bray MD

Everythings about the same. Cept my weight is really down 8#
Hi again,
Well I guess I am on the cautious and conservative side but I recommend follow up. You are becoming significantly dehydrated . I take it as a few positive signs that you have not worsened in terms if pain And fever however. I think it is easier to get on top of problems to be aggressive early however... Say if you had PID the azithromycin may help but 1.0 gram IV Rocephin tonight and a few days of IM Rocephin may really help to knock it out. ( this is just an example scenario of course and not any specific recommendation for your treatment)
I hope this helps! Best regards,

How would the er test for pid. I think i need iv fluids. I just had a bout of very watery diarrhea
Hello again,
Main thing would be the pelvic exam. This determines if uterus/ Fallopian tubes/ ovaries are tender consistent with infection.
Cultures of the cervix is typical.
CBC : with differential of white cell types would be typical.
Sometimes imaging studies are done to check for presence of abscess but with the studies you have had done them this would probably be unnecessary.
PID vs other intra-abdominal or pelvic infections would be critical as some infections would demand surgical intervention ( example would be appendicitis)
I hope this helps. Let me know if you have further questions!

Would an infection show up on a ct scan?
Hello again,
No not necessarily but at times it does. A large abscess would show up. The CT scan shows structural abnormalities of a certain size primarily. There can be differences in tissue difference especially in certain tissues that show infection. This is especially helpful to show pneumonia of the lung tissues for example. On the other hand the CT scan is not sensitive enough to detect infection in all places or tissues. It may be a helpful tool but this would have to be considered in light of its limitations.
I hope this helps. Best regards,
Anthony Bray MD

Do you think this still sounds like it could be viral
Hello again,
I doubt viral infection really but it could be possible. My bet is that repeat CBC will show higher white cell count with predominance of neutrophils which would be pattern of bacterial infection. Now a pattern if predominate lymphocytes would be more suggestive of a viral infection. Your pattern so far has seemed more of a pattern if PID and this is not a viral infection.
I hope this helps. Best regards,

I dont want to look dumb going back to the er when i just saw my dr today
Hi again,
You would not look dumb!! You have legitimate concerns!! There is nothing wrong with getting these problems checked out. Please if you go do ASK. Both about your dehydration , possible PID, fever, abnormal appearing urine and nausea. They won't investigate what they do not know about!!!
I hope this helps. Best regards,

I
Told them all this stuff wednesday night
Hi again,
I see but you are still having problems such as tolerating fluids and the 8 pound weight loss! You have ongoing concerns! You still have pelvic pain , right?? How long ago was recent fever? I take it that you are still nauseated??
If you are well then don't go to the ER! It sounds to me that whoever saw you must have been too careless to send you out with such a low BP ( 85/50 as I recall??) you did not have stable vitals and this technically would be malpractice to discharge you with unstable vital signs...
So if you go I hope that you get good thorough care! I know that this is not always the case...
Best regards ,

My pelvic area feels crampy like a period. But my discharge is blood tinged now. I dont think my vagina should hirt this bad. I had a fever this am but have been taking tylenol as often as i can. Right now temp is 99.6. I am still nausous. I am very lightheaded. My lips are dry and peeling. Can they do a culture and stuff if im using the metronidazole vaginal gel
Hello again,
Well the fever is at least controlled with the Tylenol.
I'm not sure if your pelvic pain/ discomfort would be considered medically more of moderate or severe category. Again a pelvic exam by the doctor provides a lot of helpful information here. If you press gently over pelvis and let go quickly ( while laying down) does the letting go hurt??
The hydration can proceed orally IF you are not too severely dehydrated and IF you are able to take in adequate oral fluids. You should be able to take in 8 ounces of Gatorade every hour while awake to attempt to rehydrate. If you can do this then you could wait and see.
Also has your urine cleared? If still brownish or tea colored then that would be of concern.
Are you light headed?? Do you feel like you might pass out?? This would be a major factor in determining if you need to go or not.
I hope this helps. Best regards,
Anthony Bray MD

It doesnt feel any different when i let go. I cant take in that much fluid. How do i know if im severly dehydrated? My urines about the same. I am very dizzy. Seeing spots. I have pain down my lft side kinda by my hip bone
Hello again,
The dizziness / light headed feeling would be suggestive of your blood pressure remaining too low and this is probably due to dehydration. Your sudden 8 pound weight loss would also suggest dehydration. Low urine output is consistent with dehydration. Skin turgid--- this is the flexibility of your skin --- if the back of your forearm is lightly pinched then it should bounce right back to normal-- if it lingers in a tented state then that is consistent with dehydration. If you have dry mouth and intense thirst then these would be signs consistent with dehydration. A weight loss of more than 5 percent is serious and more than 10 percent is critical.
The urine may be very concentrated and infrequent with dehydration. If it is still tea colored then you may have even more of a problem.
If you can check your BP then 90/ 60 to 135/ 85 is normal resting...
Normal resting pulse is 60 to 100...
I hope this information helps you to self asses where you are and what you need to do.
Best Regards,

The most serious thing is dehydration
Hello again,
Yes the dehydration would be the most serious. The infection?? PID IS ALSO SERIOUS. The abnormal color urine ?? Tea colored urine meaning possible blood in the urine also concerns me...

Hello!
No not usually. I have seen horror stories that you would not wish to know about however. If you are not urinating normally and with normal color then I would advise that you go ahead to ER. If your weight loss has not improved any from the 8 pound drop then I would advise that you go.
I hope this helps. Best regards,

What could happen?
Hello again,
Well of course hopefully and probably neither if these complications will happen to you--- but with a bacterial infection there can be risk of sepsis( infection to the blood) and this is frequently fatal in less than 24 hours.
With the kidneys I worry about the brownish color which may mean blood. This may mean injury of the kidneys and this could progress to renal failure requiring dialysis. Again hopefully and probably this will not be the case.
I hope this information is helpful to you. Get well soon. Best Regards,

Ive personally never had strep before. This am i wake up with a sore throat and it hurts to swallow. And my voice is hoarse. Could i have picked something up? How long do ruptured ovarian cyst hurt?
Hello again!
Well strep would account for high fever and a first episode if strep would make you very ill!! It is unusual not to have had several cases of strep by adulthood however.
A ruptured cyst may hurt for several days to a week most typically.
I hope that this helps. Let me know if you have further questions.

I had a quick strep done friday. Was negative. I feel worse today than i did Wednesday when it all started
Hello!
If the rapid strep was negative then you probably do not have strep---since symptoms appeared later then it might be considered to be repeated. The test in general is about 90% sensitive to pick it up ...

How can they tell if a cyst has ruptured vs just leaking if they didnt do any imaging
Hello!!
It is a common phenomenon for a follicular cyst to rupture monthly as part if the reproductive cycle. On general there is no need for any imaging to be done. Sometimes a very large cyst may be monitored. They bleed internally but this is generally limited. This bleeding into the pelvis may cause some discomfort however. This would not be expected to cause fever however.
I hope this helps! Best Regards,

I will give you another positve rating for all your help. Why am i so exhausted? The morphine couldnt still be causing it.
Hello!
I suspect that it is the toll fro your illness that makes you feel exhausted. The dehydration and whatever infection that caused the high fever( maybe PID or other??? )
The morphine will make you tired but this effect depends on the deliver form... Can vary 4 plus hours to 24 plus hours depending on the form of it...
I hope this Helps let me know if you have further questions!
Best regards,
Anthony Bray MD

Customer reply replied 4 years ago
It was administered via iv
Hello again,
Then this form if morphine would be short acting--- more along 2 to 4 hours in side effects -- not long lasting with this delivery. So other factors of our illness probably account for your fatigue.
