I have antibodies for c b & a..do i have to worry about being tested?
Hepatitis a - there're two antibodies, IgM and IgG, IgM being positive means you're currently infected, IgG is not. Hepatitis b - hepatitis B surface antigen is the indicator of current infection, presence of antibody doesn't mean you're infected. Hepatitis c - antibody isn't the indicator of current infection, HCV RNA is the indicator of current infection.
Why am I have sortness of breath and tightness
Hi, if you feel shortness of breath and you feel tightness in the chest, it might be the Angina. If you feel the pain or tightness goes worse you'll need to go to ER. If it doesn't go worse, I'd suggest to make an appointment with a cardiologist and have the check-up. There're quite some measures to evaluate your heart condition.
Asthma?
Could even be pneumonia and must be diagnosed by a doctor. Do not fool around with such things on a site like this!! Go get medical attention.
have not been feeling well for several months now....bowels are the problem with other symptoms like FATIGUE aching legs,muscle aches, ...difficult bowel movements....narrow stools, just had a colonoscopy last fall with no issues...I have absolutely no energy..also dizziness and headaches
Is this possibly a disorder of bowel function?
H-pylori ?
I rolled my left foot about 3 weeks ago. The bruising is gone but the pain and swelling on the left to middle side of my foot with a marked redness there remains. It hurts to bear weight. Could it just be stretched ligaments or maybe a fracture?
You probably stretched your tendon and ligament. Sometimes that is worse than a fracture and takes a long, long time to heal. I did it too. Still gets tender if I go the wrong way or too much pressure on it. I did that 38 years ago !!

Direct and indirect causes of groin pain can include:

  1. Avascular necrosis (death of bone tissue due to limited blood flow)
  2. Avulsion fracture (ligament or tendon pulled from the bone)
  3. Bursitis (joint inflammation)
  4. Epididymitis (testicle inflammation)
  5. Hydrocele (fluid buildup that causes swelling of the scrotum)
  6. Inguinal hernia
  7. Kidney stones
  8. Mumps
  9. Muscle strain
  10. Orchitis (inflamed testicle)
  11. Osteoarthritis (disease causing the breakdown of joints)
  12. Pinched nerve
  13. Piriformis syndrome
  14. Retractile testicle (testicle that moves between the scrotum and abdomen)
  15. Sciatica
  16. Scrotal masses
  17. Spermatocele (fluid buildup in the testicle)
  18. Sprains
  19. Stress fractures
  20. Swollen lymph nodes
  21. Tendinitis
  22. Testicular cancer
