YANAD/YANMD – Was I mis-diagnosed?

Last Thursday and Friday I had really bad pain in my back on the right side, in the middle – just about where the ribcage ends. I had a low-grade fever on Friday evening. On Saturday morning I decided that the pain was bad enough to necessitate a trip to an Urgent Care facility, as my doctor does not have weekend hours. [more inside]

My va-jay-jay is bedazzled with pain.

I've had some on-and-off pain in my pelvic area and vulva for over a year, and coincidentally (or, so says my PCP), I've also had two abnormal pap smears and an abnormal colposcopy. I don't understand how this is a coincidence. This will be a little NSFW. [more inside]

Help me be more understanding

My husband has pelvic pain syndrome. He is in intense pain and has been housebound for about 5 weeks. He can only get comfortable when he is lying down in bed which is where he spends most of his time. Have you ever had this syndrome and can you tell me about your experience? Help me be more understanding and compassionate.

Crippling, baffling upper-back pain

Hey, for the third time in the last ten years or so the same part of my upper back has decided to cause me a spectacular amount of pain and discomfort for the last five days or so. The pain is all on the right side of my upper back, going up my neck to the base of my skull, accompanied with numbness in my shoulder and all down my right tricep, sometimes all the way down to my fingers. Along with the pain I'm nauseous half the time, possibly as a result of the pain itself. Sleeping, working and doing anything at all beyond moaning is really difficult, and the application of heat and cold has only helped temporarily. Last time I just took over-the-counter back meds for a week until I could get off the couch, and then a bit later went to a chiropractor who identified a problem in my upper spine and assured me he could fix it if I came around every week for the next 20 years and signed over my paycheque. This time I'm going to go to a proper doctor, but can anyone take a guess at what may be wrong and what sort of doctor I should try to see? Thanks!

Back pain and swollen lump at base of spine

Very painful corn on inside of little toe ..help

Broke my foot 2 years ago - seems like the gait has been altered and now my shoes don't fit as well and pressure started being put on my baby toe right on the inside between that toe and the adjacent one and a small corn has developed making every step excruciating. So I went to get one of those silicone inserts and it's helping somewhat. Also got new shoes. But now what? Will the corn disappear by itself? Is there anything that's not hyper-toxic that I can use on it to hasten the healing? I can't afford to go to a podiatrist right now - so anything that is suggested has to take this into consideration.
