Customer Question
Hello. I've been feeling...

Hello. I've been feeling lightheaded for a couple days now. I've had a horrible headache that comes and goes. I also have pain in my kidney area. Went to ER - they did a urine test and said I have a UTI. They also did a CT and said there was no bleeding on my brain. I just got home from ER - and now my left leg is swollen and feels very heavy. It's very tight and feels like I'm dragging around 100 pounds of leg. I feel paranoid but should I go back to the ER?

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

Daily. Yes with nausea.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I've had many episodes with kidney stones but this doesn't feel like a stone. I make them Uric acid stones. One was a 15 mm staghorn kidney stone. Chills. No fever.

Are you being treated for the uti with an antibiotic? If so and you have no fever, it will take a few days to get better. It sounds like you have already had more testing than you need and do not really need to go back to the Er at all.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
