When do you see your doctor again? You may want to write down all the questions that you have for your followup visit where you will be discussing your test results. It's easy to forget what you want to ask when you see your doctor so writing your questions down may make it easier to discuss your test and test results.

You've come to the right place, our Welcome Center board community and moderators will try and assist you. Please do realize though that it isn't possible to be diagnosed over the internet as much as we wish that were possible, it's not.
At the current time we don't have a neurology community board but we can certainly point you to WebMD boards or content that may be helpful.
Another thing that may be helpful is to keyword search your medical reports using the Google Scholar search engine as you can pull up peer reviewed medical literature that may be helpful to you before you talk to your doctors about your diagnostic tests.
Take care and let us know if we can be of further assistance to you!
Your pharmacist should be able to tell you about your medications and what is in them and whether there are drug interactions or other problems. One of the things to be cautious about when you are seeing more than one doctor is that the doctors as well as the pharmacy have updated lists of all of the medications you are taking.
You may want to bring in all of your medications to show your pharmacist and doctors and make sure that they, in fact, are updated on your medications.
The Kidney Disease Community board may be helpful to decipher the medicalese of your father's CT scan report, but in any case those questions should be addressed to your father's doctors who are treating him. Does he have kidney disease? Read more about it by using the WebMD search engine with kidney disease as the keywords.
I hope you find this information helpful. Let me or another moderator know if you need further assistance.
Since you mention that you are 48 years old, may I ask if you are perimenopausal or menopausal yet? Hormone changes that come with menopause can change the fat distribution on the body resulting in what is commonly called a meno-pot or meno-gut. The Menopause Community with Dr Mary Jane Minkin can help answer questions about perimenopause and menopause body changes for you if that is what you think may be happening with you.
Do realize that it's not possible for anyone to be diagnosed over the internet though so you may want to think back to see if there's anything that your son ate, used, or was exposed to (such as plants) that could have caused a rash.
Try using the Symptom Checker tool to read more about rashes before you take your child to a doctor if he doesn't get better soon.
Stress can certainly make one ill and your recent life changes certainly can add to a stressful situation.
Did you let your doctors including your GI doctor know about the problems you had with the workout supplement you've taken? If you are still having problems with working out, have you let your doctors know that too?
We have a few communities that may be helpful to you:
WebMD Digestive Disorders Community (at the current time this community does not have a health expert but we do have community members who have had gallbladder surgery so they may be able to help you answer your questions about this as well as digestion problems.)
