Me-37 yr old Female, married, 3 children(Csects), tonsillectomy, gallbladder laparoscopically removed
Mouth apthous ulcers--multiples occuring frequently under tongue, uvula, back of throat, esophagus, (feels like strep at times)--been having about 30 years--dr. currently has me trying Valtrex to see if it will help...been on 9 days with no noticed affect yet
Nose-red, painful, bumpy, swelling around tip, outer edge that will sometimes head up like pimples, but aren't pimples--had cases of this since childhood that would crust and diagnosed then as impetigo--exacerbated by sun exposure but not always the trigger--I use neosporin until it clears
Vaginal-paiful fissures in labia creases accompanied often by itching--STD's negative, several punch biopsies done: inconclusive really--currently controlling with a compound of mupirocin,nystatin,bacitracin
Occasional bouts of anemia (suffered with anemia a lot during childhood also)
Gushing Nosebleeds that take 20 minutes of pressure to stop that will occur almost daily for a week or two and then stop for a while
Very tight muscles-always
Sometimes experience difficulty (stiffness, frozen) getting up after sitting on floor
Throat-just recently (last month) began experiencing difficulty swallowing pills as they seem to get "stuck" in my throat, even small,coated ones, dr. noted assymetry in back of throat during recent exam, I see white areas and wonder if should be screened for cancer?
Flare-ups of reflux: nexium to treat
Mild Rosacea on cheeks-not treating
ANA Test Negative
Awaiting Blood results: B6, B12, Folic Acid, C-reactive, Immunoglobulins, CBC (what might these show?)
