I was looking up the symptoms of a B-12 deficiency and came across this. It's the weirdest thing I've ever seen. The things that make you go "Hmmmmm".

Symptoms Of B12 Deficiency In Women

You forgot to mention the page title, which reads: "Candida Symptoms in Men." Quite the puzzler, that page.

It looks like a trap to me, when I see nonsense like that I run away- :dry: lol I would not advise clicking further into the site.

I asked my son (college kid) what it was. he says they are created with random grabs of popular information just to bait someone in. Then if you click the "Continue" button you'll get into some advertising or malware. He also said that it may not have been created by a person, but by a computer. yes, weird.

I had no interest in looking at it further. It didn't tell me anything I wanted to know!

That kind of site seems to engage in what is called "click-baiting" along with some mild SEO (search engine optimization), all created automatically by various tools. I didn't go any further into that site either.

Hello all,

I couldn't find another topic with a more fitting name. I was just wondering if this is normal? I have started to get a lot of large and bleeding purple blistering in my mouth. I tried to load a photo via my phone however it will not let me so I have put the photo as my profile photo.

If anyone could give me any advice or information I would be grateful!

Many thanks

Katie

Katie:

They sound like blood blisters which is a symptom of low counts. You should probably contact your doctor. It's not an emergency, but I'd let him know about it.

Thanks Sandi!

I've had a different hemo today than normal and he has decided to make me a inpatient again and give me some immunoglobulin. Apparently I am being to symptomatic and he doesn't like how long my platelets have been on 0.

I'm not entirely sure what is means or what having the immunoglobulin will accomplish so
I'm crack on and get some more research done! Thank you for all of your help Sandi, you have been more than helpful! A star!

Many thanks! X

I think they are doing the right thing. IVIG is usually pretty temporary, but hopefully it will give you the boost that you need right now. Good luck!
