Question: Im a pure Caucasian(white), 15 year old male I have symptoms such as Swollen Lymph Nodes in neck and underjaw; hard,moveable,2 of them are sorta big,and one is shaped weird and the others are small. The join of where my neck and skull meet hurts sometimes Sniffling nose Chest pain (ON and OFF) I would say i have like a pigment of purple with my skin color on my hands I did just have a sore in my mouth under my teeth, but i don't take really good dental care. I seem to get them alot, but they go away within a week at most even when i mess with them. I have shortness of breath but i dont work out either. I have had these since nov-dec of last year Sometimes i get sick after i eat I have redness around my nose and cheeks it feels hot and than cool, though i do have a cold right now Feverish,Runnynose,Coughing the usual for the common cold. There is bumps on the area,but i think they were there before the redness i got to hard lumps in the back of my head the part where my spine and skull meet though just alittle above though i have this feeling of sickness These Symptoms go off and on Though the lymph nodes staff I'm scared i looked up the symptoms cause i ruled out cancer and i saw lupus affects teens in the age 15-17 the most and is the most fatal with only 45% of living if untreated. Im so scared i feel like im going to puke. Going to a doctor soon though just want your guys opinion When i said bumps i mean like blackheads

Ok. How many times are you going to keep asking the same question? You've asked "our opinion" several times before. Go to the doctor. Don't sit around making your self ill with self diagnosed problems.

9 out of 10 lupus patients are women. The most common age of onset is between 14 and 45. Most cases are mild to moderate. There are no death statistics for lupus as it is never listed as a cause of death. If we die, it is usually from uncontrolled infection, kidney failure or cardiovascular events. I was undiagnosed and therefore untreated for 38 years. I have been diagnosed and treated for 11 years. I don't know where you are getting your information but it is out of date at the very best. Your job is to accurately report your symptoms. If you go into your doctor having diagnosed yourself from outdated and possibly unreliable internet sources, the doctor will get irritated and you will have less of a chance of getting a real diagnosis. You need to answer these questions in a very, very sort summary. What is the symptom? When did it start? How long does it last? How often do you have it? What makes it feel better? What makes it feel worse? Then leave the diagnosing to the doctor.

Find your doctor and go see him. All in all this sounds like a respiratory infection, asthma, hay fever/allergic rhinitis. But it could be anything else too. When you have fever, you get a red face. Your lymph nodes are supposed to enlarge and decrease like this. Having a red face does not necessarily mean lupus. It means other things too. If you have lupus, you are limited in your lifespan because of the disability this brings you When all you have is a runny nose?! Yes, I doubt you have lupus. You are reading on the internet too much.

Sinclair Originally Answered: Opinions on raw dog food diet?
I think it's great. I feed my dogs a raw diet, and it's been one of the best things I think I could have ever done for them. Clean teeth, fresh breath, a healthy, shiny coat, no "doggy" odor, little to no gas, and small, firm stools. Some people think feeding raw is bad because they're misinformed, and have never seen the results firsthand. Yes there is Salmonella on some raw meats, but Salmonella can also be found in kibble and does not usually affect healthy dogs. They're built to handle it. Raw bones, unlike cooked bones, do not splinter and puncture the stomach or perforate the GI tract. And contrary to what some people think, eating raw, bloody meat does not make dogs aggressive or vicious. That is purely a myth. Consider this. Dogs, who are genetically wolves, have spent the past millions of years of their evolutionary history bringing down prey and eating raw meat and bones. If it was so bad for them, how would they have survived to that point? Yes, most wolves in the wild have shorter lifespans than the average pet dog, but this is largely due to starvation, predation by humans, being hit by cars, or being killed by other animals. Captive wolves (who by the way are generally fed a raw diet) can live long, happy lives just like dogs. If you're considering a raw diet, I highly recommend it. You should do a little research beforehand to make sure you fully understand what you're doing, but it's really, *really* not that difficult. People try to make it sound difficult but it isn't. Look at it this way; do you compare each and every single meal you eat to a food chart? Is each and every single meal you eat complete and balanced with the correct of grains, vegetables, fruits, dairy, and proteins? Of course not. You feed yourself for balance over time. And so it is the same for dogs. They're just dogs, not scientific creations requiring complex formulas for optimal health. Anyway. Here are some really great links that can inform you more about a raw diet, and guide you on proper feeding. http://www.rawmeatybones.com/petowners/w... http://www.rawmeatybones.com/diet/exp-di... http://www.ukrmb.co.uk/images/ww.pdf http://www.rawfed.com/myths/ http://preymodelraw.com/how-to-get-started/ http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/rawfeeding/ http://dogfoodchat.com/forum/raw-feeding/ Hope that helps!
