Weak immune system is usually manifested with often, severe, infections usually caused by infective agents that in normal occasions either cause banal infection or cause no infections at all. Symptoms of weak immune system are chronic fever, chronic diarrhea, anorexia, weight loss, swollen lymph nodes, symptoms of severe infections like pneumonia, meningitis, encephalitis etc. In the final stage patient dies from septic shock.
be caused by steroid use? I was diagnosed 17 years ago with asthma and put on a breathing machine and steroids for a year only to find out that was in incorrect diagnosis. Blood tests proved that I had hypersensitivity pneumanitis caused by exposure to mold/mildue in my car's air conditioning system.
My doctor then put me on prednisone which he said would be my last chance but it is really hard on the physical body.
Now with this HPV, even though I have a very healthy life style, live in the country, am for the most part happy, no infections of any kind, have an immune system that could not fight off HPV, where does that place me being someone whose immune system is compromised? Does it come with age? Or the above mentioned factors?
So only damaged immune systems are likely to get septicaemia from infections ......my tooth infection then how ever wouldnt as i think my immune system is okay as you said it almost impossible for somone with a normal immune system to get sepsa
could my tooth infection weaken my immune system ?
what are severe infections kidney mrsa super bugs ......?
my tooth bacteria comes out of my gum never stays in my gum so that is another good thing it isnt runinning through my gum?
please explain again i am very confused thank you
Bacteremia Is That Somthing I Should Be Comcerned ABout
Tooth infection are usually caused by bacteria that are normally found in the oral cavity. Such bacteria can't weaken your immune system. Immune system can be weaken by some viral infection like: HIV, mono, rubella etc.
MRSA is an abbreviation for Meticilin resistant Staphylococcus aureus. This is a type of Staphylococcus aureus that causes intra-hospital infections. It is resistant to all antibiotics except to Vankomicin.
from the age of ten to 14 i always suffered with my tonsils and sore glands but the doctor said they were just infections and i would grow out of them and that they were nothing to do with immune system i recently since two days ago have sore throat and glands
does this have anything to do with weak immune system ??????
Which joints you feel painful and for how long? Are the painful joints swollen, warm and red?
Weak immune system can be manifested, beside other symptoms and signs, with sore throat and swollen lymph nodes but having only sore throat for 3 days is not enough proof for having weak immune system. Sore throat and swollen lymph nodes are very common conditions and rarely means weak immune system (immune deficit).
Shoulders mostly always my shoulders chest hurts alot when touched.
you are right about the swollen glands they have gone now just a a sore throat thing
No they are never red warm swollen theyre tender to touch like all down my arm one day will be tender.
and they hurt all the time for the past one and a half years my lower back can also start hurting for no apparnt reason ?
And my neck and elbows they all seem to click since these pains
big noisy clicks when i turn my head around in a circle
i know you said my immune is ok
they are alot of arthritus in my family maybe thats why my joints are so painful
Also i am very worried as i am pregnant and i was told low IRON ANEMIA Can weaken the immune system.
Have you ever done X-ray image of the painful joints? If yes, what did the report say?
Iron deficit anemia is found in almost all pregnant women. Iron supplements should help you to prevent it to become severe.
I am 71 year old. In the last two years I have suffered from pneumonia (bacterial) twice. Bladder infections at least 10 times. (Various bacterias). Herpes, 20 times.
ITP, very serious, once, for 3 months, requiring chemo. C.dif infection, once.
My doctor suggests seeing a urologist, I think I need someone who specializes in immune disorders. Does this sound like an immune problem to you? Thanks. And what kind of specialist am I looking for?
Having lung infection (pneumonia) twice usually do not indicate having some immune deficit. Do you have some other respiratory disorders like bronchitis or bronchiectasions? Do you have some spine disorder that curve your vertebral column?
Often bladder infections (chronic cystitis) also doesn't mean having immune deficit. Do you have some urine tract anomaly? Do you have diabetes?
Herpes outbreaks appear when the immune system is weak. What type of herpes you had - zoster or simplex?
Clostridium deficiele infection could be due to excessive use of various antibiotics.
How many times you required chemotherapy and when? Chemotherapy can cause immune deficit. Idiopatic thrombocytopenic purpure (ITP) is really an autoimmune disorder.
Thank you for your various thoughts. I do not have diabetes. I do not know but I think the doctor called it glutal herpes. I had two sessions of chemo which quickly cured the ITP, but left me with various infections for several months.
I have some asthma caused by various irritants, but no chronic bronchitis, or no spine disorder.
I do not have a ut anomaly that I know of, so perhaps the suggestion to see a urologist is timely.
Yes, you can consult some urologist or nephrologist about those recurrent urinary tract infections you have. You may need abdominal ultrasound scan, intra venous pyelography (IVP) and cystoscopy to find out the reason for those recurrent infections and to estimate how much damage to your urinary tract (especially kidneys) they have done. Urine culture would be also requested to isolate the infective agent and to chose some proper antibiotic for treatment.
