Customer Question
hi! i'm a 15 year...
hi! i'm a 15 year old girl. i'm 5'3 and about 150 pounds but am fairly active and pretty muscular. i haven't been home so i haven't been able to go to my doctor and have been looking up symptoms and psyching myself out i think. i have kyphosis and have been having really bad middle/lower back pain that's on one point and when i bend back it feels like it's being pressed and it's a sharp-ish pain. it is worse at night and am worried it is a tumor. also, get headaches every morning- but i think i snore so that may have to do with that. and sometimes have random aches. when i ride bikes my right elbow hurts. and i have a pretty much constant dull ache in my upper right arm. also i haven't gotten my period in 2 months. i haven't been eating as healthy as i used to or running as much and have gained some weight. my headaches usually occur in the front of my head like forehead or my nose. also, it hurts to look up and sometimes closing my eyes hurts weirdly. pls tell me i'm fine!!!

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

My 1 year old woke up with a sudden fever of 102 today.
my 1 year old woke up with a sudden fever of 102 today. We've given her Tylenol and it's gone down to 100.5 (now back up to 101.2 before bed). What worries me is that this afternoon and this evening she has started having involuntary tics - squeeze her eyes shut for a second or two. This is not blinking, it is very clearly a facial spasm or tic. She has also had a few jerky movements (somewhat like startle reflex when she was a newborn). I'm really afraid that these are febrile seizures … read more
