Hi everyone. I suffer from an onslaught of psychological problems, and instead of just sitting and waiting it out, I thought I would get back on old medication that I used as a kid. I suffer been suffering from severe Anhedonia. I believe the Anhedonia was brought on by pills I tried taking earlier this year prescribed to me by my doctor (Effexor, Cymbalta...
If anyone knows who I am in this community, chances are you have seen my long writing on how many pills I have been thrown on to treat conditions I probably never even had. I went in for a psychological evaluation on March 5th, and after nearly an hour of talking, the social worker then gave me the DSV-IV TR, and as I was reading it, I didn't want to ...

Answering your questions: 1) You should ask the doctor who ordered that test if TMA was accurate. My guess is that it definitely was accurate, and that there is nothing to worry about. 2) Doubtful. If the STD was in your prostate, it would have been screwing with your whole urinary tract as well. 3) Yes. My prostate is completely normal, and I have Chron...

Can you share more details about these spots? It's possible that they are caused by ingrown hairs.

I recommend that the both of you be evaluated and tested for sexually transmitted diseases by a physician. The symptoms your boyfriend is experiencing is not normal, and they sound quite serious. However, the incubation period for Gonorrhea is 2 to 30 days, and Chlamydia is a bit longer, which means that it would take about that long before symptoms became...

Even if you didn't wash the underwear, bacteria like Gonorrhea or Chlamydia can only live outside the body for less than an hour. I'm probably even wrong on that, for it may be that it Gonorrhea and Chlamydia require intimate contact in order for the diseases to be transfered, and that they cannot be transfered once they are outside the body and on ...

Ureaplasma is DEFINITELY part of the normal genital flora on males and females. Wikipedia, my doctor, and even your doctor have confirmed this. I would not classify this as an STD at all.

This is quite mysterious to be honest with you. I can say though that I have experienced almost all of these problems you have listed (especially where it follows sex), and I have never tested positive for an STD. This doesn't sound like an STD to me. With the information you have provided me, I would venture a guess that this sounds somewhat like Chr...

I would think that they vary from lab to lab. You can go to LabCorp's testing website, go to their test menu (or just type in "Lap Corp Test Menu" into google) and you can find the reference values. I don't know if SCO values are provided. It's probably just index values or whatever, I'm not sure if that is the same thing or not....

Natalina, the way HIV functions is quite interesting. The reason why determining that you have HIV with CBCs is completely useless, is because you could have HIV and still fall within normal reference intervals on the test. HIV is a clever little pest of a virus, and it isn't the disease that makes you sick, it is the infections and the disorders that...
