Can piles cause groin pain


Usually not: But if there is an infection, the groin pain could be from enlarged and inflamed lymph nodes. Dr. Olaf Johansen says: Enlarged lymph nodes, muscle strains, inguinal hernias or testicular problems would be more likely suspects.

See a doctor as both these symptoms can have a variety of causes, ranging from mild (like a viral infection) to more serious. The doc may order tests to see what is going on and whether these symptoms are related. Don't neglect it tho.

strep throat

Strep Throat Symptoms


Patient CommentsRead 37 CommentsShare Your Story
In those individuals who develop strep throat, the symptoms usually begin between 1 to 4 days after initially acquiring the infection (incubation period). The symptoms can range from mild to severe. The sore throat associated with strep throat is usually described as starting rather suddenly, and the tonsils and the back of the throat may appear red and swollen. Swallowing is usually painful, and thus some individuals may have varying degrees of dehydrationdue to lack of adequate fluid intake.
Often times, however, it can be difficult for healthcare professionals to diagnose strep throat based on symptoms alone, as strep throat and a sore throat due to a viral infection can often have similar overlapping symptoms. However, the presence and absence of certain symptoms can make strep throat more likely.
In general, the common signs and symptoms of strep throat include the following:
  • Fever
  • Sore throat
  • Red and swollwen/inflamed tonsillitis)
  • Swollen and tender lymph nodes on the sides of the upper neck (cervical lymphadenopathy)
  • White patches or spots on the tonsils (tonsillar exudate)
Individuals with strep throat can experience other associated signs and symptoms as well, which may include any of the following:
Generally speaking, though the presence of runny nose, cough, hoarseness, eye redness, muscle aches, ulcers in the mouth, and diarrheamake a viral infection more likely, the possibility of strep throat must still be considered by the health care professional. As previously mentioned, strep throat is most common between 5 to 15 years of age, though it can affect individuals of almost any age. Consequently, strep throat can sometimes manifest differently depending on the age of the affected individual, and special considerations must therefore be taken into account.
  • Strep throat in infants: Strep throat in this age group is uncommon. Infants may feed less and appear irritable and fussy. A low-grade fever and nasal discharge may be present as well.
  • Strep throat in children: Children will often complain of sore throat and painful swallowing. They also may eat less and complain of abdominal pain.
  • Strep throat in older children and teenagers: Strep throat in this age group can be extremely uncomfortable, with individuals often complaining of a severe sore throat. The fever can be high and they may be ill-appearing.
  • Strep throat in adults: Typically adults have milder symptoms and they may complain only of a mild sore throat. However, more severe symptoms are still possible in adults.
Occasionally, some people develop bad breath (stinky tonsils) when tonsilloliths (whitish deposits on and in tonsils) develop. These deposits are often dislodged when the patient coughs, but in some individuals food particles get trapped and bacteria attack the food particles and produce the bad odor. Removal of these deposits may be done by a qualified healthcare professional. Continue Reading

Swollen lymph on the left side


If you mean that you have a swollen lymph node, then you should see your doctor if it does not clear up within a couple of days. Swollen lymph can indicate an infection somewhere else in the body and often easily rectified.
However, a swelling in there region of the lymph nodes can indicate more serious issues and so a vist to the doctor is highly recommend if it goes on for more than just few days or becomes very painful.

IF you are referring to swollen lymph in a blood pressure monitor, please forward more details

good luck

What are the symptons of AIDS


Hello Dear

Early signs of Aids are:

Some people experience signs and symptoms of HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus), as soon as they become infected, while others do not. When they occur, early signs and symptoms are often mistaken for the flu or a mild viral infection. Initial signs and symptoms of HIV include:
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Tiredness
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Enlarged lymph nodes in the neck, armpits or groin
Any symptoms from becoming infected typically resolve in one to four weeks. As you can see, the signs and symptoms of HIV infection are similar to those for many different viral infections. The only way to know for sure if you are infected with HIV is to be tested. Many people infected with HIV do not have any signs and symptoms at all for many years.

The later Signs and Symptoms of AIDs:

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says the following signs and symptoms may be warning signs of late-stage HIV infection:
  • rapid weight loss
  • dry cough
  • recurring fever or profuse night sweats
  • profound and unexplained fatigue
  • swollen lymph glands in the armpits, groin, or neck
  • diarrhea lasting more than a week
  • white spots or unusual blemishes on the tongue, in the mouth, or in the throat
  • pneumonia
  • red, brown, pink, or purplish blotches on or under the skin or inside the mouth, nose, or eyelids
  • memory loss, depression, and other neurological disorders
HIV destroys the white blood cells that are required to fight infection. As the white cell count falls to dangerous levels, numerous infections and diseases emerge. It is at this point that a person is said to have AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome).
