Could doctors do more? If you got the flu shot but you end up catching the flu, it could be less severe and less likely to land you in the hospital. Jerome Adams also recommended the flu shot and urged parents, in particular, to get their children vaccinated. Anne Schuchat said Thursday.
Last October I also went to ER thinking it was something more serious. In the past I thought it may have been a muscle pull or cold in the back. The hospital found everything negative and sent me home. I get this at least once a year.
This passed Friday I woke up with the beginning of the pain, it has gotten prgressively worse and has not subsided at all. I called my doctor, got checked He referred me to an orthopedic man, thinking possible bursitis but orthopedis couldn't explain it traveling down to my right elbow.
Today I go to a neurologist! I too am thinking shingles without a rash. I am a 56 year-old female who is not a smoker, excersises regularly and is not overweight.
I eat well too and I am so frustrated that no one can tell me why I am in such pain and why is comes and how to get relief! Since the past four years, 2 knee surgeries, wrist surgery, 2 major abdominal surgeries While pregnant with the two and a half year old I got the swine flu that ended up an ear infection that went so deep it got into my ear bones and went systemic!
Thankfully we survived and his only damage that we can tell are the white stains on his teeth from the antibiotics he received while in utero. After years of stress and an occasional excruciating stabbing pain behind my right ear the one with the worse of the infections I was suddenly brought down HARD yesterday while caring for the four of us with the flu.
Two days ago I was sweating and freezing within moments of each other. Yesterday I was just plain freezing. Under three blankets all day on the couch alternating babies snuggling me for their warmth during our all day movie watching, though truth be told I just lay there with my eyes closed until someone whined for popsicles, juice or a toy swiped by a sibling.
The pain behind my ear was excruciating for about 36 hours, it would come and go every few seconds or minutes depending on if I was lying in a hot bath with the lights out. After realizing I was making the same sounds I had made while delivering three 9 pound babies with no medication I knew I needed to go to Urgent Care this morning.
A very long 45 minute drive and a two hour wait once there and the doctor surprised me. I had just seen my ear doc last week for a follow up from a dizzy fall I had in the night when I cracked my ear on the edge of the dresser as I went down hard in the dark. He had drained the fluid from the cartilage so I hopefully don't end up looking like a kickboxer with Cauliflower ear.
He also cleaned my ears out so I knew they would be squeaky clean for the doc today although with no pain in the actual ear canal I was just assuming the nerves were doing something weird. They were, the doc this morning told me Shingles! He looked for a rash under my hair and found none and said he hopes we started the antivirals in time to prevent them.
I had chicken pox at 6 months old and what do you know I have learned three major things today It seemed like a silly one but after this experience I couldn't let them face it. I do have fear about introducing to their perfect bodies this little creep of a virus and I read on this post about the 61 year old that developed shingles months after her vaccine Hang on people, this is what they call the human experience ; Purpleluv Hi, last night the hospital in Saskatchewan told me that I have shingle's and gave me a prescription to fill if the rash appears.
I did have some redness on my left side mid back, but this morning that redness is gone. Right now I am just watching it closely. I'm in severe pain in my lower spine and a burning sensation into my left groin.Latest environmental news, features and updates.
