Patient discussion about early

Q. What are the Early Symptoms of Colon Cancer? My Father is 82 years old and has been suffering from rectal bleeding lately. The doctor sent him to an urgent colonoscopy in order to rule out colon cancer. Are there early symptoms to this disease?

A. Colon cancr signs vary depending on the exact location of the tumor, for instance a lower tumor that is located in the rectum might cause rectal bleeding and one that is located in the right side of the colon might grow and cause anemia.

Q. What to do for early Lyme that's not responding to treatment? I came down with Lyme disease three months ago with a bulls-eye rash. Even though it was supposedly a recent case, I already was having Bell's palsy, memory loss, trouble thinking of words, joint arthritis, severe bone pain, and fatigue. I took 100mg doxycycline 2x a day, as my doctor prescribed, for 3 weeks, but still felt bad, so I took it for 3 more weeks. When I stopped after 6 weeks, all my symptoms came back and I kept getting worse. I finally convinced my doctors to give me a refill, and I've been taking the same prescription since then. Any time when I'm late on a dose or eat something with magnesium, I get very sick again. I'm not getting better, I'm merely suppressing the Lyme disease, and it comes back whenever I stop the antibiotics. What can I do to actually get rid of it? Higher dose doxycycline? Another antibiotic? Two antibiotics at once? IV antibiotics? Supplements? (I'm biased against this, but) Rife machines?

A. I did test positive for Lyme disease on the ELISA test.

I think it is just disseminated (I've been having Bell's palsy), so maybe I need 400mg doxy/day (200mg 2x a day) in order to reach the proper concentrations to inhibit B. burgdorferi in the CSF.

Q. I want to know what the early autism symptoms. I am very much concerned about my child’s health. So I want to know what the early autism symptoms are.

A. Love to know the affection you have on your child. Although there are many different symptoms that may show up in your child, it usually shows up in the way of social development, communication skills or repetitive symptoms. It also is worth noting that the symptoms are not usually limited to just a few. In fact, an autistic child may display symptoms that span all of these three different categories.
