Have had a bad sore throat for a week now, turned into a productive cough with a headache with a lot of pressure in my head and ears. Right now I need to cough but can't because my throat is so raw. Doing OTC meds. Do I see a doc at this point or keep waiting it out?
mix up some salt into warm water and gargle it. should help with the sore throat. sounds like you just have a cold so i wouldnt worry about going to a doctor. its good to let your body fight these things off rather than getting antibiotics for it. shine a flashlight into your throat in a mirror and if you see large white lesions you might have strep throat, in that case go see the doctor.
Been eating a lot of eggs over the past year because of the gym.
Lately everytime i eat eggs I get stomach cramps and pain after a bad hour. Am I allergic? And can I fix this?
My feet hurt in the mornings or after sitting down for a few hours. Hurts to walk, around ankles and top of feet. Seems to hurt more if I drink a lot the night before. Can it be liver/kidney related. Its been going for a few months
if its green or especially rust coloured and or if you have chest pain see a doc. probably a viral thing but the associated malaise so should pass after feeling shitty
gout is a possibility with alcohol. it would present will usually one side red warm swelling.
do you have any stiffness and if so what time of day is it worse?
how long is the recovery after a bunion surgery?
I mean sport activity not just putting your foot on the ground.
I have a severe bunion on one foot and plantar fascitis on the other
the pain during sport or in the every day life is becoming unbearable sometimes
any advice or experiences are welcome.
i have some white stuff on my penis under my foreskin(if you think it's smegma you are retarded)
it tightens my foreskin to the point of no retracting when erect, also it itches oftenly. how to get rid of the white thing? is it yeast infection?
I am constantly thinking graphic images of my GF cheating on me. Always think she's hiding things from me. Cannot rest unless I know she is with me and I have 100% attention from her. How to solve that medstudentfag?
I sometimes get extremely bloated for days or even weeks and my turds look like flat-ish rectangles, bloating gets so bad my left testicle throbs and I also tend to struggle to empty my bladder.
What the fuck is wrong with me?
So this is a little concerning, I've been constipated on and off for a few months, today just had to work for 20min to shit out a couple tiny dry pebbles, and a lot of blood. Am I dying?
Is the bloating just isolated to the lower abdominal area? If so, intestinal inflammation of that level could mean severe gastroenteritis or possibly Crohns. Do you feel worse after eating things like nuts/seeds/corn?
Thats more of a psychfag question. Hows your relationship with your mother? Most of the time clinginess or anxiety with a significant other stems from abuse or neglect from the parent of opposite sex. Either that or lack of self worth leading you to believe you either dont deserve her, or if you lose her thats it, game over.
I guess so, mostly the left side. I hardly ever eat nuts or corn unless it is processed and I'm unaware, as for seeds I don't know either unless wholemeal grain is included - even then I don't eat bread regularly.
All in all I still haven't figured out wtf is triggering this bloating but I'll read up on Crohns. Thanks /bro/
I have acne on my scalp making me lose hair. Yeah I dunno somehow I infected my scalp bc I had shitty acne on my face. I can keep it under control on my face with meds and shit but always comes back on my scalp first... I dont wanna lose my hair. A vitamin meds were doing wonders but they are no good for health so I cant take them again for a while.
WOW! 1yr old Dad left. 5yr old Mum gets violent alcoholic bf. Punch, kick, stamp her for 10 years till I was 14. Smoked massive amounts of weed from 15 - 27. Stopped then, now 29. Been with GF for 2 1/2 years. We got together by cheating. Colourful huh!
My semen is really runny and yellow. And burns when i ejaculate sometimes. But not when i pee. And my lower back /taint area vibrates like a lot. I think im dying
No your diet is just shit.
Drink water and increase your fiber.(or just eat a bowl of cheerios every morning with coffee) .that always makes me shit and im on heavy pain meds The blood is probably from the hard odd shape pellets tearing your ass.
It sounds like you worry about her cheating/leaving because you dont have anyone else. Let me guess your mother is now married to this dickhead and it fucked your relationship with her? Im speaking from experience, btw. Another thing it could be is that because you two began your relationship through cheating, you know shes capable of it.
not medfag but 99% of all men get those, essentially they're pimples on your dick and you can squeeze them out if you try hard enough.
I assume its on the underside of your shaft?
It's not really that bad until you have an accident.
Could be falling down from great height, drowning in your own vomit or something worse.
Just a matter of time but for now you are safe.
Sebaceous prominence. You have sebaceous "nodes" all over your genital area, sometimes they push themseleves to the surface. They are hard and unpoppable but if they get infected they can develop a small pimple on the surface on top of the sebaceous node
Mum left the prick when I was 14. She has been single since. I was with an English girl from 15 - 27 have 2 kids. Left them for this Filipina from work. We now have a boy of 1. 1 month into relationship I went back. Slept with "now ex" and now the cunt tells "current gf" we slept together and she flew off the handle. She download Tinder, matches with guys and send half naked selfies in front of me! A revenge thing. Thanks Anon. You've been more help then anyone else. What shall I do now?
what can I do about my wisdom tooth growing through? a piece of gum is overlapping it and it's causing me a lot of pain when eating and talking
(I'm poor btw)
there are extensive listings and it varies from person to person
in my experience, a lot of things can produce reflux
tobacco, coffee, alcohol, fried food, spicy food, raw vegetables, garlic, onions, cheese, chocolate, heavy amounts of liquid...
Just anything that takes long time to digest may give you reflux specially if you lie down after eating
Your case is minor from what I see, anyway if you feel a burning in your chest, talk to a doctor
I've tried pretty damn hard and nothing, I cut one and tried and it didn't seem to work too well, maybe a bit worse actually. But yeah, like 4 or 5 underside of shaft.
so can I cut them? Just seems a chick might not like them, or at least give me less head because of it.
Glad to hear other people think the same.
I definitely don't want to cut off the salarys of doctors, I just want to see happy and healthy people that don't cough into my direction because the penicilin their docs gave them is just placebo.
Last time I went to the doc for a tickbite, he gave me 2 pills of antibiotics. For what purpose? I know for a fact, that anti biotics cannot work from two pills alone.
I will never visit that doc again.
Not at all now. The vibrating went away after a week so i jerked off and it came back. So i think i have some sort of infection
I fucked in the ass a stranger girl but only for 1min. Came in her.
Is it long enough to catch a HIV virus? :( what are the chances? how fucked am I?
can anyone tell me what this could be? it comes and goes. it doesn't itch, but is somewhat sensitive. haven't had sex in a long time (1yr+), but that last time was unprotected.
So medfags will help someone with bumps on their dick but not someone litteraly fucking withering away? I can't sleep, I can't eat, if I don't get up super slowly I black out so bad that I just fall over like a fucking ragdoll
Not a medfag
Blood could be first stages of Hemorrhoids
I'd see a gastro-whatever (yes, an ass doctor)
and change lifestyle
Because not only those fuckers can bleed, your ass could severely itch, hurt or swell
I eat super healthy and drink water.
Grains ,eggs,chicken fruits veggies nuts. ;_;
Make it sound wprse than it is. Sometimes the only way to get proper xray/blood test whatever. If it's been going on for two weeks, say its been happening for two months. Dont say I almost black out when I get up fast, say I blacked out etc
In December I drank way too much, and ever since alcohol of any quantity seems to upset my stomach to some degree.
It seems like it's very slowly recovering, but is there a chance I've done a permanent number on my stomach? I'm a 20 year old guy and I feel like I should be able to bounce back better than this at my age.
Change your diet? Go to your Dr. And have him recommend you to a GI doc. Could be something serious if you cant eat.
Whole grains in moderate amounts is good. And helps me poop
Prpbably have a stomach ulcer. Take it easy on drinking. Acidic foods and spicy foods
Not recently but i had chlamydia twice. But i took antibiotics so i think i cleared it. Honestly what it probably is
I vape (I know I'm a faggot), but I drink coffee to write for school and that's about it. Stress is infinite but other than a stomach bug this last week I haven't had any major issues.
Definitely not an ulcer, acidic foods and spicyness hasn't bothered me. Only alcohol.
I did get ridiculously sick the morning after, could there be a psychological factor?
lol no, I'm not joking. I wouldn't think it's my body hygiene though. like I said, it comes and goes, so I've put off going to see the doc for a long time. also kinda because of it being on my privates lol.
blend them and put'em directly into intestine from the anus
The area between my balls and my anus (not sure what it's called) has always been itchy and dry, with dead skin always falling off when I scratch it. Never did anything about it and I don't know what caused it.
Just look up the symptoms and personal experience of people. It's just like birth control for women, it will change your mood and also cause some underlying issues for you for a while if you quit after a while.
So just look it up but a few problems include: loss of libido, difficulty in paying attention to your thoughts so you'll basically be empty headed and chill but not like yourself if you're used to thinking (this may be good or bad for your personality so it's up to you), and maybe stomach uneasiness for meals.
I've been on multiple antidepressants over many years. Dont take them from a gp. Take them from a psych. The one gp gave me fucked me up. Few others caused some side effects, most of them caused very very vivid dreams/nightmares but was tolerable. One I'm taking currently has no side effects, other than late ejaculation, has very mild positive effects. You might have to try a few to find the one that works for you. But dont be scared, just keep to thevdosage / and take regularly, no skipping. When you find the right one, you'll know, its worth it
I have been drinking at least 2 times per week, sometimes i feel that my pulse accelerates, like my heart is aching if i do not drink. Sometimes i stop drinking for like a week and again the same thing with the heart. Is like i'm feel chased or something. Is it a panic attack? anxiety crisis? I'm 35, like 15 kilos overweight, i do not have diabetes or hypertension (checked at beginning of the year), my job is pretty sendentary, like office work. Thanks medfags.
No idea which ones
Just new to the psych. Persistent depression & anxiety. Along with a certain mental condition test
She won't answer my questions. Keeps pushing me to just do it. And nobody who takes antidepressants seems to (1) either answer my questions or (2) just say something along the lines of "It's 100% harmful. for no reason. TRUST"
I freak out at times, badly. If that gets worse i'm gone. And i'm honestly scared to hell. Tearing up while writing this - i don't want to die in a mental rage. I want to do it when I can still control it the least painful way
I have been googling. And I am not sure if I regret it. I'm not looking forward to the zombie-effect (HOW REAL IS THAT? Everybody says that isn't real and then shrugs off the conversation. Dont trust)
Don't mind the physical side effects if they work at least a little bit
It's from a psych
"It's worth it" - like. Just how bad were your bad moments?
Please. Redpill me.
Thank you for responding all of you. Like you have no idea
looking for some kind of confirmation because a doctor visit appears to be useless from the research. i'm convinced i have erythromelalgia and have been experiencing symptoms since i was sixteen
i was diagnosed with reynaud's a few months back and the conditions coexist, but sometimes i just think im crazy
my flares are either my hands, feet, cheeks, biceps, thighs, knees, etc but mostly hands/feet. flares can be both hands/feet, one foot/hand, one finger/toe, or one side of a finger/toe. i have tons of pics of flaring everywhere and always get people telling me im a rare ass case of whack
i can flare from emotions, stress, hot/cold temp change or just doing nothing at all and it burns like a motherfucker
Would it be possible to give a comparison between both states? Like worst case
Supposedly things get WAY worse when you either just start taking them, or have to get off them (?)
Once again, thanks man
Ran track as a kid, tore hip flexor. Now 20 and in the army. Everytime after I run my right hip flexor is fucked, i took a month off and it didn't help. Scared to take inflammatory medication cuz i heard it could make it chronic, but it might be too late. Is there any way to fix this known?
cold can definitely trigger it, but mostly reynaud's episodes where my fingers/toes lose blood and go numb for a while.
the red flares mostly occur in hot weather/when im hot and with summer coming around soon i know i have to be extra careful about exerting myself or i'll just combust
another thing i forgot to mention is my sweat can trigger flare-like episodes and cholinergic urticaria seems to be the term for that but i can get hives from most anything like taking a lukewarm shower, i come out with little patches of red all around my neck and back
I got T1 diabetes 2 months ago, how do I minimize the risk of death by night hypo? I already don't take insulin within 2 hours of sleep. do I really have to set alarms for the middle of the night just to make sure im not slowly dying in my sleep?
if in a hypothetical situation
havent been to a doctors in about a decade
closet trans been on estrogen for a few years
recently castrated oneself (calcium chloride injection same they use on stray dogs)
should i be concerned next time i go to a doctor or hospital?
also unrelated sleeping for about 16+ hours per day is fine right?
My feet stink real bad at the end of the day. My job requires steel heel and toe so new footwear isn't an option I have a few pairs of boots I cycle throughout the week. I wash them and they're normal again but I feel I got some kind of swamp foot situation going on.
I get this pain right below my left side ribs when I have too poop. I take over large poops, been happening for 4 years or so. Idk what's up but I think it's my digestive track, also lots of blood when I poop and hemroids
It's different for everyone, what you experience on the same drug might be different than mine. Without drugs my worst was, crying everynight till 2 am, sleep for 3 hours, wake up at 5am, cry couple more hours and go to work. Everynight I went to bed, I wished I didnt wake up. Every morning I woke up, I was disappointed I woke up. Took train to work, thoght about jumping in front of it everyday. You get the idea.
Worst on drugs was, like I said it was that one drug that fucked me up. I dont know why but I kept taking it for a m9nth, I think because gp told to stick with it. Anyway, anxiety went 10x worse. In that 4 weeks, I couldnt even leave the house. Ordered everything online. I hid my phone so not to talk to anyone. Couldnt sleep properly for a month. Etc. Then just stopped taking it and symptoms disappeared. Didnt take any antidep for a while after that.
Other antideps with side effects, like I said, mostly were vivid dreams, they are more than dreams, its like youre living them. Any anxiety, any fear you have, you get to live as real in your dreams. Woke up very tired, exhausted, wasnt worth it.
All of them I stopped cold turkey, which they always advice against but didnt cause any problems for me.
This last one im on, works better as in better mood but has no side effects. One drug I tried, made me so happy/social etc it was unreal but its effects only lasted two weeks, after week 4 i stopped taking because it wasnt doing any5h8ng anymore.
Antidep is not enough on its own though, you need to work on underlying isuues. With counciling. Anyway, these are my experiences, might be different for you. But if you have friends/family (i dont) tell a trusted one so they can monitor you for side effects but always keep in touch with your psych/coujcellr.
Anyway, dont be scared to try them, if they work they work, if they dont work you're back to where you are now
No I don't but like I said, its different for everyone so the one which fucked me up could do wonders for you. Dont be scared, try it for a while, if it doesnt work, try another. This is about the 7th brand I am on. You're not stuck on the first one.
>ish I could hug you
No homo? If youre a chick you're welcome though
Straight male. Just really really glad someone is finally willing to answer
Must admit I'm not quite sure how you say it's worth it if it can in fact make things worse (but then again i am assuming the whole "stop taking them = instant irresistable suicide urges" thing)
Must be really helpful if they work
how are we supposed to know if you see a doc at this point? they're YOUR eyes, dumbass - do you see a doc or not? like do you need a picture of what a doc looks like in order to determine if you see a doc?
