I have had virus symptoms since Sat...and the worse is an arm and neck twitching that started Sunday night. Today it is so bad I look like I have terrets or parkinson's syndrome. I have a low grade fever of 101.3 and a bad earache.

PAST HISTORY : Flu shot vaccine a month ago with the pneumonia vaccine. I am also on Lexapro and Propanolol for blood bressure

Hi,

The symptoms does not seem to be of viral infection, however it might have started as a viral infection but none of the symptoms match a viral infection and even 101 fever is not mild.

You probably had some URTI (upper respiratory tract infection),which now probably has involved a bigger area and even might have also converted to a bacterial infection.

Precautions to be taken
- Have plenty of water(fluids non colas)
- Avoid spicy food
- You can have ice cream but not too much
- Remain covered if you travel too much in cold

You can have paracetamol for fever 650 mg tds, augmentin 650 tds,and may be cough syrup if you have any cough. However there should be no twiching because of above problem,but if you think you are having too much of twiching then you should consult a doctor,an internal medicine specialist.

About 5 years ago I noticed a dramatic reduction of the muscle mass (Muscle atrophy) in my right calf muscle, like 75% to 80% reduction compared to my Left calf Muscle (possible the gastrocnemius), I also noticed that my Achilles is also very loose, when in a relaxed state, compared to the left leg. What could be the possible problems? There is no pain (other than uneasiness like restless leg syndrome) associated with this problem. I do have a lower back problem (damage) that was done 30 years ago to the L4/L5 herniated disk. Now I have noticed that other muscles are starting to harden and reduce like the one did 5 years ago. I went on a 15 mile hike in the mountains this past summer and I am very active during the day. However I do not regularly exercise as I should. Thoughts?

Blood tests like Creatine kinase and Electrodiagnostic tests like Electromyography [ E.M.G.] should be done. Nerve conduction studies for the affected limb should be done.

Hello, I have had a nail fungus for a good ten years or so. When I first noticed it, I went to my doctor and he game me lamasil which I stopped taking after a few days since it had negative affects on me. Thereafter, I stopped taking care of it and just let it go for a good 7 or 8 years. I eventually grew up and started getting very self conscious of how it looked and wanted to wear sandals and flip flops and not have people think nasty things about me. A few years ago I went to my doctor again and he gave me a topical oil which I used for over a year and did not see any results. About two years ago, I noticed that a vertical brown line was starting to grow from the bottom up. I went to a dermatologist who took a sample of my nail but did not take a sample of the nail bed or from the cuticle. Biopsy came back as of course it being a fungus. He in turn gave me pills to take which I also had to stop taking since it was having a bad affect on my liver. After that, my dermatologist said that he would give me laser treatments which I did two of. They did not clear it but it looks a little bit better then what it was before. Still thick, yellow, crumbling below the nail, nail bed where new nail is growing is darker then the others and the brown line is still there. It is a thick brown line. How did I get this brown line? Did I get it because of the prolonged damage of the nail bed due to the years of having the nail fungus?

You're most welcome. Nail Melanoma does not affect multiple nails together while Longitudunal Melanonychia (LM) often does. The fact that an additional nail is showing changes is nearly conclusive that this is LM, which as I said is harmless. However it would be best to see your doctor to get this confirmed since I cannot see the affected area. I would recommend getting the entire nail removed if its the only one affected by fungus, but this will be solely to treat the fungus not because I thin ...

I have been prescribed 5mg of Lexapro ( name brand) one time daily. I have noticed that my heart rate and blood pressure is normal when sitting or laying down but ( 118-70, 76) and jumps up a lot when I stand ( 136/89, 134) Could this be because of the medication? If so is this something that will go away after awhile or do I need to change medications.

  Doctor's Answer

Hi, The drug you are taking is from SSRI group(selective serotonin receptor inhibitor group) which is the latest group to be added in depression and has less side effects as compared to other groups given in depression . Although there are many side effects but you are specifically asking me about heart rate and blood pressure. Usually the blood pressure should not rise specifically on standing as the gravity occurs and usually the blood pressure falls down a little. The heart rate can increa ...

  Doctor's Answer

Hi, Urinary problems are not common in flu and should not be related. However this can happen if you have low immunity then you can have multiple problems together. Usually flu are viral in nature which will take some time at least whether or not you take drugs (antibiotic),but taking an antibiotic will help you so that you don't have any other infection. Viral has a fixed period cycle Have plenty of water(that will help you flush your system) Have fresh fruits and vegetable Pain can be due ...
