How can my husband's...

How can my husband's constant be remedied when he cannot take anything with aspirin or ibuprophin?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Metformin, atenolol, chorothyidone, verapamil. He has been diagnosed as having lyme disease in the past.

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

He has some blood in his urine and he had a bad fall in the shower eight months ago.

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

He has taken the antibotics the doctor prescribed. Finished them about two weeks ago. Now he is constantly very fatigued and gets these headaches but cannot take anything with aspirin in it due to his high blood pressure.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
The blood urine, the headaches and the fatigue are the issues. In addition he is eating very little due to lack of appetite.

what tests has he had?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
He has had a complete blood test, urine test and a lyme disease test

That is not sufficient

He needs to see a urologist and have his bladder looked at with a scope

He also needs special blood tests by a neurologist for his headache

it is time to see a couple specialists here

is this helpful?

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.

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.
