It's true that a lot of people have it. Remember that you only get an outbreak for a week or so every year or so, and that frequency decreases as time goes on.
Also a certain amount of people will be carrying it but never show symptoms.

Hello, I have irregular heartbeat (doc has not specified what type), raynauds, high blood pressure, pulsing veins in neck, and headaches that seem to be to me of a vascular type sharp pains that come and go, vision pulsates with heartbeat, and has effects on reducing my hearing. since last spring i have had cognitive decline as well as neuophysical effects (loss of balance, weakness, numbness, tremor). there have been two events that i have summed up to be strokes, neither of which i recieved any medical attention for, due to being alone at home with my parents, who did not believe it was stroke due to my previous dealings with mental health issues. i.e. hypochondria. i however have had workup with mri scan leading no results other than a sinus cyst, a cyst on my pituitary gland, and a spinal cystl.these scans were done months after actual cardiovascular event there was however a ct done at one point that showed what may have been a spot on carotid artery, yet mra scan done after the fact yielded no results. . had visit with previous primary care after who said it was "weird". i do remeber bits and pieces of last event, i wanted to go to emergency room, but my mother thought it was best to just go and see primary care. during this day i was having severe raynauds, high blood pressure reading, irregular beat, hearing loss. did not go to ER and next day presented with left sided weakness. as well as more cognitive issues. went to ER maybe a week later ER did basic old style neuro workup (move your foot, squeeze, etc. nothing extensive) refused to do MRI, did not even do CT (dont know if CT would do any good at this point anyway? one week after.) discharged with diagnoses of weakness. Wondering what I can possibly do at this point to make people see what should be so obvious, as well as any supplements that may be of help in reducing risk for further stroke

Suggestions maybe

If you are 18 or over 18 in the US seek medicaid to help financially. Not sure how so-called Obama care works. Try to ditch it if possible if it keeps you with one corporate based provider network. Medicaid seems to leave one with more viable options.

Medicaid if in the US I believe one can likely get some sort of pre-approved, pre-accepted assurance of medical care that may need more immediate action if one does not have medicaid.

Something like this. http://medicaid.alabama.gov/CONTENT/6.0_Providers/6.9_Prior_Authorization.aspx

Seek a new primary care doctor provider in this manner I would casually suggest. If yours cannot follow through and the ER after-the-fact routine isn't working out. Something that would be more one-on-one in understanding your concerns. That would refer you to a specialist to help try to understand what needs to be looked into more closely. Some hospitals are far better working with people in an interactive manner than others.

Not medical advice, but the artery issue seems to have been noted as well other issues sound significant. Possibly blood flow issues, like blood clots. Maybe an aspirin a day. Or like 81 mgs a day.

Thanks for your reply. Strange part is I have private insurance through my father due to disability, as well as state insurance. I do take a full 325 aspirin a day as well.

Actually just went to ER for this issue, was hooked up to heart monitor that kept going spastic, Alarms of: High heart rate ( of course), but also breathing dropped to 0, machine read as apnea in red level warning, and also electrical activity warning came up. even though i was told they can see, and i know they can, the patient alert system at main desk, hospital staff came only after call bell was rung, someone comes in only to override machine, tells me nurse will be right in, wait 10-15 mins, then. basically swept all this under the rug, saying, anxiety, "just a twinge of anxiety". said that it was movement causing the leads to do that. I was staying perfectly still and (my) witness in the room says the same. Kind of funny looking back on it, I actually shook myself around to try and bring about another "artifact", trying to illustrate my point that its not movement doing it.

Ranty, sorry...

I googled but can only find articles about waking up tired. I just want to ask, despite my fucked up sleeping cycles, I do sleep for good normal hours, but not quite at same hours

SO, why do I feel in my brain for like 20-30 minutes in a great mood? It dissipates shortly after, but these first 30 minutes are like my dopamine and serotonin levels are really optimal. Along with some good music, it's great. But then as I go in the day, it's not as lovely anymore :\ work, stress, anxiety thoughts etc (not big but it's there), also laziness ~.

Had this problem since December now. It feels like something is constantly stuck in my throat. Went to see the doctor twice and just got prescribed with omeprazole, because they said it was acid reflux. It helped at first but now it is getting worse. I am struggling to eat and drink. I stopped doing situps and changed my diet completely; more salads, water instead of soda, but it is still not getting any better. I have to constantly take antacids during the day. It seems worse if I haven't slept well. I take kratom every other day, but it doesn't seem to make it worse. Does anyone know what is causing this and treatments? Could it be certain types of food or unclean cooking equipment?

I also have hemorrhoids, which is why I changed my diet completely to include more fibre. I have been using Germoloids to try and treat it, it has had some effect, but it still hurts; are there any home remedies/treatments I should've added that I usually don't eat until 5-6pm. Could this cause acid reflux?

do you have a history of heartburn/gerd? i'm definitely no doctor but long term acid reflux can damage the esophagus, leaving behind scar tissue which can case strictures, narrowing the passage and making it harder to swallow

Hello, I was hoping someone that knows more than I do could give me a guess about what put this on my body? It's over 10 years old and I can't remember where it's from. It might've been someone with a pair of sharp, pointy scissors that did this to me. I can't really be sure, and my mom doesn't know anything about it. I will update this tomorrow with more pictures, in natural light. I haven't measured it, there appears to be some weird discoloration on my neck where the scar ends. Thank you.

this picture doesn't do it justice. its a very long scar and extends down off my shoulder blade and onto my arm. also in this picture ive attached you can see it changes direction, and the discoloration on my neck has been there on that side as long as i remember. i will try to continue posting pictures until i feel ive clearly shown it. its difficult to take pictures of my own shoulder, im trying to lean to expose it, and look in a mirror to make sure the camera is aimed at it. you might have to tilt your head or something to see, the scar turns toward my back at the top end. and it strays elsewhere too.. to be continued..

I swear I have "phantom pains" not to sound ridiculous. My shoulder kind of feels "euphoric" when I think of it. Like numb sort of but not actually numb, just some kind of strange sensation. The original picture, if you tilt your head, shows that the scar isnt straight either. there's a much smaller parallel scar right on the side of it and almost a "zigzag".

This attached picture shows a different angle. Like I said, tomorrow I will get some in natural lighting where these marks are most visible. If you tilt your head you can see in this picture, it runs up past my collar bone.

This is driving me nuts!! The lighting and the thin part of the scar (where it runs down my shoulder toward my bicep) are like an optical illusion! It's so hard to see the whole scar in any of these pictures, I will do my best to get more clear ones up within 24 hours from now. In this attached picture, I circled the discoloration on my neck and drew an arrow pointing to where the scar turns toward my back. I'm not even sure if those other lines are stretch marks or if there's multiple smaller scars heading toward my back. It might be hard to see, these pictures looked better on my phone but I WILL post updated ones.

i'm having a root canal done. they said i had to wait 2 weeks between appointments, which i was told was a long time by the person at the front desk. they prescribed novo-profen 600mg (which is ibuprofen 600mg)

they said to take 3 pills a day for 5 days (=15 pills) or when needed for pain and sold me 20 pills total.

after looking up this medicine online, the recommended dose = 1200 mg daily which is only 2 of my pills.

is my tooth infection just bad enough to warrant going 50% over the limit or do you think my dentist made a mistake?

ayyy lmao we have a glorified shop clerk here who reads and misinterprets pubmed articles and thinks he's a real specialist when his profession is barely validated or even necessary in a first world country

There are ways to reduce pain other than reducing inflammation, you retard. Are local anesthetics anti-inflammatory? Read literally the first two sentences of the pubmed article you linked, dope. "To prevent patient pain, the clinician may chose from opioid and nonopioid analgesics. It is rational for the practitioner to combine drugs from these classes when managing moderate to severe pain."

The article contradicts you all the way down. This has done nothing but reinforced every pre-conception I hold about your mickey mouse profession.

N-no, I'm a pharmaceutical chemistry undergraduate. I'm just a friendless nerd who spends a lot of his time reading medical textbooks rather than a legitimate medical practitioner, I can't sit my entrance exams to I R I S H M E D I C A L S C H O O L until I finish my bachelor's degree.

The way it works here is that you sit your leaving certificate when you're 18 and that determines which university you go to. Medical school is different, it's of six years duration and you have to sit an additional exam along with the regular battery of them in the leaving cert. It's called the HPAT, and my dad wouldn't give me the money for the fee to sit it because he was whining that because I never went to school and was always lazing around at home on heroin/pot I'd never pass either the HPAT or the Leaving Certificate and thus it'd be a waste of money. I incredulously claimed that I'd pay for my own HPAT thinking I could shame into it, but eventually I relented, and spent all of my money on heroin as per tradition anyway.

I had been studying constantly for the HPAT when I was 17 and was basically treating the situation like I was already in medical school. My grandmother who had raised me as a child died shortly before I turned 18 and I broke up with my ex-girlfriend after she cheated one me shortly after I turned 18. At this time, I stopped going to school and spent most of my time at home drinking/taking heroin and watching Withnail and I over and over again, or leafing through books. I lived on a mountainside with my mother, her husband, and her younger children. It was crushingly isolated, there was no internet connection, and I had no friend living with a five mile radius. Eventually, I moved further down the mountain to live with my newly widowed grandfather when the fighting of my stepfather and mother had become too severe. He was still mourning the loss of my grandmother, and I was in no condition to provide him with any emotional support, and in this interminably lonely environment, I sought solace again in my chemistry, biology and medical textbooks.

I ended up acing my state examinations and could have gotten into medical school if I had ac…

28 year old MD in 2nd year of pediatrics residency.

Don't be intimidated. As mentioned above the hardest part is actually getting into medical school. You need good grades, good letters, some experience (research, job), and good enough basic science skills and reading comprehension to get a decent score on MCAT. You you can get IN to medical school, you are smart enough to get through it.

Once in medical school you have to treat it like a full time job. If you don't dedicate the appropriate time to study you will not pass. It is not that the material is hard, it is just that there is A LOT to cover, especially in the first two years. Your first two years is spent mostly in classroom with some labs (anatomy, pathology, micro) and are focused on one thing, United States Medical Licensing Exam One (Step 1). Not only do you need to pass this; but your score will determine what kind of options you have after medical school. If you want a cush lifestyle (radiology, opthalmology, dermatology) with no call and mad money you need to score very well. If you are ok with primary care (family medicine, psychiatry, pediatrics, intermal medicine) were you work hard for much less dough then you just need to pass. But this exam will determine the quality and type of residency programs you will have opportunities to get accepted to.

Years three and four involve hands on learning; they involve long hours and emotional stress (nothing like you will face in residency) but are a lot of fun because of amazing experiences you will have. You "play" doctor but suffer none of consequences of poor decision making. You get to deliver a babies, assist in surgery, put a breathing tube in; and be witness to intimate moments of human suffering and triumph.

Every one in medical school is "smart"; but like any other group there are gunners and slackers. In my class of 150, 5 people washed out. Personally I was an A student in high school/college; In med school i was lazier than most and smoked more weed than most and got middle of the road test scores and Step 1 Score. My wife excelled and was a top student; she wasn't smarter, just a harder worker (and more mature) than myself.…

Hey /med/
Recently I've had a bad chest infection, follow by the flu, went to doctor after flu and he gave me antibiotics which cleared the chest infection.
Was fine for a week, now I can taste from my pheglm the chest infection is back, and now my left ear is blocked (fluid and the Eustachian tube not letting it drain) and it currently feels like my right ear is going to fuck me too.

My doctor is kind of a prick in a 'what do you want me to do about it?' kind of way and I don't really want to pay him $40 to make me feel guilty about wasting his time.
Is there much I can do about this? And if there's nothing I can do without a script what should I hit my doctor up for as he likes to play guessing game bullshit.

Her doctor says it would be unsafe if she were to quit now but I honestly dont see how this could be so. The baby will have to go through the wds anyway so why would quitting in the last month of pregnancy be any different?

Hi /med/
so a friend of mine broke her leg and is bound to bed/the couch for 6 weeks. when i visit her i'd like to give her delicous food, but not just cake or junk food like that, but rather something that would actually aid here bones.

isn't calcium always good for the bones? is there calcium rich foods or would it be too little to really have an effect in any case?

i don't need a full on recepe, just tell me what you think, could be delicous and belefitial at the same time (in regards to bone fractures)

not med but have some physiology under my belt
calcium is good, spending time with them as being immobilized can be isolating, getting sunlight (Vit D helps absorb calcium into bones) by short walks with crutches .

Make banana bread and spinach lasagna. Yum.

Magnesium and calcium supplement combinations are available. Something magnesium helps absorb calcium, helps with vitamin d also. Almonds are good.

Hope she feels better soon. Bummer not being as mobile when not feeling well. Grapefruit juice is nice to feel better in attitude and outlook in thinking
and all around feeling hydrated.

Oh yea, on the lasagna note, cottage cheese makes a nice lasagna. Low fat seems nicer as far as health wise, perfect for bone related stuff and is just good for minerals and vitamins.
Simple recipe, adjust as wanted, http://allrecipes.com/recipe/218091/classic-and-simple-meat-lasagna/ I like a bit of Parmesan on top a bit of thin sliced onion somewhere in between and a bit of black olives on top here and there.

Yogurt and granola is nice, trail mix, nuts, fruits and yogurt with cereal is nice. Blended smoothies type stuff is good all-around anytime. I like ice cream in cereal.

The best food is anything super high in potassium

I don't know how to describe my pain other than it feels like my veins/blood vessels(idkexactly) feel enflamed and painful.

In my left leg in my shin and on the left side of my head I can feel a pressure/pain in what I assume is the blood vessels. I feel pain in the left side of my chest from time to time.

So obviously I'm pretty worried about what's going on with my body, but I went to the hospital and they said they couldn't find anything wrong with me. I've done a lot of drugs that fuck with your circulatory system. Smoking, inhalants, etc. And some people in my family have a history of heart problems, so I feel like this is the beginning of something much worse.

My question is, what sort of things can I do to help heal the circulatory system in my body. I've stopped doing drugs almost entirely except for drinking from time to time and smoking weed occasionally.

I just want to know what things I can eat, take supplements, do exercises I can take or whatever to help not die from a brain aneurysm/ heart attack/ promote circulatory health. I'm still pretty young(24) So I'm hopeful that I can do something proactive.

The way to do that is to gradually bump up your sodium intake to biblical proportions
