Why in the world did women's bodies develop in a way that once a month they go through -that- horrifying, painful process? You think Humans will adapt past the cramping and the misery or just the suck mammals have to drink in forever?

I wonder if he was prescribed a low dose of Propranolol. It's the go-to in our office for easing patients with anxiety without getting into conflicts over benzos, or dealing with people who have obvious hypochondria.

Pimple causing eye infection? by Walter Pockhall - Tue, 23 Aug 2016 00:46:06 EST ID:ZF3D/ZEr No.54422 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

A couple days ago I noticed my eyes were getting a bit irritated. Yesterday I had increasing build up of mucus in my eyes (I was actually having trouble driving because I kept getting floaty mucus masses directly in my open eyes). This morning I woke up with my eyelids lightly caked with goop (slightly hard to open them initially). My eye lids have been red and irritated, and my eyes themselves are bloodshot and occasionally watering. The amount of mucus decreased over the day.

I really don't know what's going on, because otherwise I feel fine. No new medications, no dietary changes, ect.
Buuut I have had a medium sized pimple about an inch right of my right eye. It's level with the corner and has been pretty red since I noticed it a couple days ago. At some point the whitehead opened, I noticed and cleaned it out, and then it got redderrrr. Today the whitehead reappeared, but was pretty yellowish/gnarly when I checked this evening. I decided to pop it and immediately felt a strange sensation in my right eye. A very very very long mucus floaty rapidly drifted across my eye, away from the right corner. I tried to get rid of it but I lost it.

I cleaned the pimple with water and then put some neosporin on it. My eyes felt slightly better after that, though they're still irritated. I noticed that each time I put pressure on the pimple, I got the same strange sensation in my eye.

Do you guys think the pimple might be causing issues? I have no idea why my other eye would be affected if that were the case, but it's a theory I guess

thanks /med/

I am telling you this because you surely have some sort of infection. I had a basic skin infection on my face (cat scratch) got a chipmonk cheek that kept getting larger. Saw the ER and they explained that a skin infection on the face can quickly travel to the eyes, (it was right about there,) making one blind. And travel to the brain which is not a good situation.

They said merely waiting a few more days could or would have been really really bad news. They gave me an IV of strong antibiotics, like a lot because apparently it is a serious issue. Felt better quickly and the swelling was gone an a little over a few days. I had this again, same situation, the urgent care DR, nice guy said the same thing, even though this had just barely started to be noticeably infected.
-
You simply have to go to an ER, ASAP, at any cost, effort. Like right now. Even if it seems it is getting better.
This is waay too close to your eyes and things could get bad real fast.

You may simply get eye drops but I think IV antibiotics would be part of this as well an antibiotic prescription. Possibly an overnight stay would be recommended.

Please go though, even if it's just a pimple thing that is harmless, but your description does not sound promising.

If you have no insurance and concerned about credit or money, http://www.emergencymedicaid.net/ May help. Some have used a fake name, forgot their SSN, didn't have their ID with them. No current phone#,
no current mailing address. Public hospitals have to treat you by law. If you have a job and ability to pay, it would be good to do so. Also followups with a doctor may be required so using you name and address.

So I have a red raised bump on the head of my penis. I got it checked out at Kaiser and Planned Parenthood and they both Ruled out an STD but what could it be? The first day it was really red and now its kind of subsided. Could this be irritation ? They said it might be fungal. Medically trained personnel please help:(

i have a constant burning pain throughout both of my hands(& fingers). my wrists are also very weak ( i can barely use a computer for 10 minutes before they start burning). i've been to a neurologist and he says my nerves are "pristine", so its not carpal tunnel or ulnar nerve syndrome or anything. there is no discoloration or swelling. i have been resting my hands as much as possible for about a month (no video games, minimal work, mostly just TV) and have seen little to no improvement.

anyone have any ideas?

26, male, driving a delivery truck(and carrying a few loads around but its usually just ~10 cold pizzas so nothing super heavy). all i really do otherwise is use the internet and play videogames. ive had back problems in my lower and upper back since high school. i dont get enough exercise and have terrible posture because of the back pain, but ive been doing 45 minutes of body weight exercise every other day since after this hand pain started about a month ago. i also switched from smoking weed to vaping at that time. i stay high most of the time because of said back pain.


ive had chronic fatigue since i was in junior high without a known cause. i have also had digestive issues with no known cause for several years.

neurologist thinks its an RSI but the fact that posture affects it, and that it occured simultaneously in both hands makes me think otherwise. my chiropractor suspects thoracic outlet problems due to poor posture. he also suggested i take vitamin B supplements which i have been doing but they didnt help.

i recently had a fasting blood test and urinalysis and both came back totally normal in all ways.


hope this helps and thanks

This shit is so painful. I absent mindedly tore up my leg with my fingernails a few days ago, not realizing how deep I was getting, and the cuts got infected. I've been draining the pus out, cleaning it with face wash pads (diluted in water so there's not as much alcohol) and keeping it under bandages with neosporin as much as possible. I'm poor as fuck and my physician is like a 2 hour bus ride away so I really want to avoid that if I can. But it legit fucking hurts to put weight on this fucker, like I take a step the wrong way and my head is swimming and I can't think. It's gotten marginally better since yesterday but like damn it's pretty bad. What else do I do to take care of it? When should I panic and see a real doc?
Sorry for shitting up your board guys, thanks for any input

I actually called my dad right after making this thread (he's a veterinarian) and he pretty much ordered me to go to a doctor immediately and gave me $100. They put me on two antibiotics (but no pain meds even though I could barely walk into their office and asked like 3 times)

I have been feelin really sick from taking my normal meds + antibiotics but I have multivitamins I will def try and take now. The doctor told me to keep the wound open to the air when I could actually but that sounded fishy to me. My leg is way less terrifying already though. Thanks dude.

Great to hear. Going it on your own is just plain stupid. The doc's right that you should keep it open unless it has dehisence or bleeding lots. Covering is good in that initial stage. The idea is to let oxygen and sunlight help. Dunno why they didn't give even simple analgesics; do you appear as a junkie to them? You gotta whinge about the pain but they should really ask..

Another pic? Would be helpful to know. I'd like to know what makes you pick; I've had to treat people with really bad habits of tearing their fingers up and I understand anxiety quite well. Antecedent prevention is what I focus on. At least now you know, though.

I kinda felt like they thought I was a junkie, at least the way they brushed me off made me think so. I hobbled into the clinic wearing pj pants and a tank and I have a couple other scabs so I guess I get it.
I'm not a tweaker or anything like that. I just kinda obsess over "clear" skin. Any abnormality I try to remove with force. I have a tendency to squeeze pimples past the point of productivity too, to the point where I'm just bruising my skin and making it bleed. Idk. My mom used to pinch my arms to unclog pores a lot when I was little.

Honestly hard to say it's better from that picture, maybe the light is better so I can see more but it will take a while anyway. Anyway if you say you have a 10/10 pain then they gotta give you tramadol or something better than aspirin. I'm not for pain relief anyway; it's just a signal of distress and you should monitor all aspects of your injury. Probably good to avoid a lot of walking if it hurts, but try to do some light stretching/lounging in the sun and keep fluids up.

I work with special needs children/young people with anxiety and it's a nightmare when they get an injury. They obsess over picking and we have to monitor them frequently to ensure they don't peel off plasters or re-open wounds. I don't want to sound like your mother, it's just that if you want to clean off any abnormalities, use tools that you can wipe down and remove more exactly with. Nails are blunt and trap dirt, which is why it got infected, most likely. Also, lance your pimples from the side and gently roll out the pus. Use steam to open pores. Self care is a wonderful thing to practise on yourself and this habit of yours just needs some refinement.

Hi /med/
I've recently contracted Chlamydia from a woman through unprotected sex. I've only had one long term partner prior to her, who has gotten tested recently and perfectly fine. So this exonerates me from being patient zero but she's been with two other people since being tested in May and claims to have used protection with both of them. Is it possible to get chlamydia via condom? This story just seems to fishy and I have no idea why arrows are being pointed at me when my previous partner has tested negative (after being with me and only me) and so have I. She also claims to have received oral from one partner, but I doubt she contracted it then. There's only theoretical risk from pharynx to vagina, am I correct? I need help with this game of Clue.

>sitting kills you
>even if you're otherwise physcially active
>but you more than likely earn a living while sitting

What do? Slavsquat? Wikipedia claims prolonged squatting isn't good either, since you get knee problems and some nerve compression in the hamstrings (I think). Standing obviously isn't it either, I hear all about side-effects of doing that all day. Walking makes precision go down, so you can't do anything that requires it, like tablets... Kneeling will fuck you up, too, I hear.

So what does one do? Do you ideally buy a standing chair, a kneelchair, a threadmill, an adjustable desk and still use the normal one by rotating between all of the positions?

What about kegels, hemohrroids etc.? I hear squat shittin' is the way to go? How do you call that thing you put on top of a normal toilet? How do you train the pelvis floor, I read somewhere that doing standard kegels will actually harm you long term. I see people use that donut pillow when they get the 'roids - is that healthy long term? I've seen some Mexican/S. American saddles that had a hole under the rider's ass - that makes it look like it'd be okay to sit like that, but then I hear toilet bowls fuck you up in part by letting your guts press down on a hanging p. floor while you're relaxed... So this is helpful only when riding I guess?

And what was that about some kind of infection developing below your tailbone that you can't get rid of once you get it? You're supposed to shave there to avoid it, right? Anything else? This one condition is something I really would like to avoid.

Don't avoid sitting but rather have some compensation. Make pauses with standing, walking, stretches etc. and do enough sport in your free time.

The problem mostly appears if people sit at work, sit at home and avoid physical activity. Combine this with a bad diet and your are essentially crippling yourself in slow-motion.

You read the side effects for that stuff? I care for young people who have psychotic episodes, it increases appetite (or rather, inhibits appetite suppression function), reduces histamine response in the brain (necessary for agitation/alertness) and in some cases, decreases bone density. As for the lamictal, I'm more experienced with sodium valproate/epilim but it seems they share a common side effect of liver/kidney harm.

Throw that shit down the toilet and continue scamming the system. Your brain is an intelligent organ and unless you're really needing meds, taking them will only teach it dependency.

By talking to someone about what happened, by clearing it out of your head. A professional, as people say. But a very close friend or family member could be helpful as well. There are certain therapies used by professionals to help people process the trauma, look it in the eye, stop denying that it happened, and live with it.

with PTSD, you want to deny it. Black out the thoughts, deny that they hurt you, that there is a problem. You want it to "go away" - that's how insidious it is and why it becomes worse over time. PTSD will never "go away". You come to terms with what happened, appreciate how traumatic this was for you, and change as a person.

to overcome PTSD, you must grow out of who you used to be. we all grow out of ourselves and into new people. with PTSD, people stop growing. it is okay to admit what happened and how horrible this is to experience, it is okay to meditate on it and absorb it. do not deny it at all costs.

you have to talk to someone who actually knows their shit. reach out in internet forums, start calling around to see if your (obama) insurance is accepted at a mental health facility. it is.

there is help, but first you need a little comfort. i would confide in a friend and be hugged
