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.

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.

I'm 27 and about 1.5 months now , and since about 26 , so for a whole year have had massive bowel changes I've attributed to my amphetamine Vyvanse being started around September of 2014.... (my bday is early December)
It went from horrible length of time between bowel movements with painful impactions and evacuations where i had to use gloves, enemas, milk of mag, hot baths etc...
To more normal eventually, and then lately suddenly the frequency went way down again (unless I hadn't noticed before), and the amount/shape changed... now I just finally had a BM and they're just not consistent with 1) my having come off zyprexa about a month ago, which is making me lose some weight and eat considerably less than i was 2) the amountof food i take in between bowel movements. When I *do* get one now that's all in one piece and not little tiny balls of crap, or slightly bigger ones in a very small total volume? It's *thin*, and I checked tonight, it only came out of the right side. To be gross, yea, I had to wipe and check and sure enough.. only the right side was dirty...
And you could just tell by the shape of the thing, too thin. Not pencil thin, but like half what a normal bowel should be.
I sit all day on my laptop, don't work, dont exercise, smoke...used to use drugs and take an amphetamine, a benzo and an opioid (suboxone) for quite some time now.
I really hope there's an explanation for this outside cancer :( If anyone has ideas other than seeing my doc, which I will do soon, let me know.

Meds are specifically:
Vyvanse 50 mg BID
Suboxone 12mg SQLD (just went up from 10 a couple days ago, but thats my usual dose, 12)
Neurontin 1800 per day (Gabapentin)
Klonopin / Clonazepam 2mg a day total 0.5 QID --pic unrelated.

Not necessary to ask but is Neurontin for pain or other? I would almost think there could be a link there. The others I really would not see as much of an issue even all combined.
The opiate to an extent for constipation and the like.

I've heard that if you're constipated enough, the solid mass of poop stays inside you but softer poop can sometimes squeeze past it and come out in thin strips. Maybe you still have a big hunk of hard poop inside.

Sorry for the long delay, OP here. Yeah I'm generally anxious although I think I listed my meds which includes 2mg a day of clonazepam. And yea there are so many muscles allover the body, it's possible that while sitting in bed all day typing, in the same position basically all day except when going out to smoke a cig (used to evensmoke right here in bed, or anything absolutely necessary) I'm probably tensing up certain muscles - also I was on Zyprexa until like 1.5 months ago or so, came off it I think December 27th actually - for about 1.25 years or so and I gained like 60 lbs or more. I went from 185 (6 feet tall) to 250ish...and I never got pants which were bigger, I just keep wearing the same stretch waist ones like sweat pants and whatever but my boxers and pants are too tight for my big gut, which sadly isn't shrinking much yet at all although i've lost some weight elsewhere. But yea the amphetamine + suboxone daily is a recipe for dehydration and some kind of IBS orwhatever. Its just odd to me -
Right now I feel like I'm getting the flu - my dad just is getting over the flu, and I didn't get the shot yet he did... I visited his house for a few hours like 1 or 2 days ago, can't remember, and he's like oh yea there are no more living germs in the house (He's a dentist so I took his word lol) but now I seem to be getting it.. and so is his girlfriend who also came over earlier on in his illness...
So anyway the onset of what seems to def be the flu has caused my bowels to unload, yet STILL only coming out the right side of my anus at least, and yea a bit narrower than I'd expect ... I go to wipe again just an hour ago, hell not even, and for the 6th time at LEAST in a row only the right side needs wiping - like a perfect clean on the left side virtually...it's creepybecause the only thing I can think of is left sided bowel cancer :\ I mean what posture and sedentary related problem would make yourbowel come out the right side every single time, leaving the left side perfectly clean when looking at the toilet paper? Scary shit man, part of me doesn't want to know but yea I'm a tense person yet myamphetamine med makes me feel mentally …

That's a great suggestion myfriend (OP here again) because like what just came out with this seemingly forced bowel movement now that I'm getting a flu (or think so,got the headache, slight chills and sore throat hit me first an hour or so ago) it was really really soft feeling (without touching it with my hands though) andlooking...
And only enough matter to account for like 3-4 days max of bowels , which made no sense. So yeah I think there's some possibly anyway, dried impaction on the left side somewhere and maybe THAT is the blockage. I remember bleeding out my anus after the last of many enemas I was doing every few days that I got upon request from a family member, and maybe that clotted up and caused poop to start piling up on that side (if it was the left mostly)... guess it could be a lot.

Also my Neurontin is basically for anxiety or an off label mood "stabilizer", 1800 mg a day again if I didn't say.
I know it's a bitch to get off but so is klonopin, vyvanse (feels like the fucking flu coming off it with paranoia for me), and suboxone... which is like heroin w/d just way longer :\

Alright /med/,

this is embarrassing as fuck, but a few days ago I got really smashed from booze and when I came back home, the first thing that pop in my head was to insert a screwdriver down my dick hole. I tried to sterilize it before I did that in hot water and put it in medical ethanol.

I did the deed and went to sleep, of course without the screwdriver.
I fapped last night and to my horror, my dick was slightly bleeding. It slightly hurts, not that noticeable. The screwdriver wasn't too thick, it's like 3-4mm wide.

What should I do? Wait a few days or get an appointment?
I know this is stupid as fuck and I'm a goddamn moron, but please help a fella out.

So I think I have IBS. If I'm really stressed and exerting myself for a long time, I can feel my stomach turning. There's usually a bit of heartburn going on as well. After a while I feel like I have to take a shit, but it's always mostly watery. If I keep pushing myself for too long, I'll.. uhh.. well have a small accident. Gross.

But other than this, I'm in fine health. And when I'm not stressed, there are no problems. Somebody told me this is called irritable bowel syndrome, but I don't know if that's true. It's a huge pain in the ass because I can't stress myself out too much for too long otherwise it's risky. And for someone who wants to go to law school, that's no good. It's also just an incredibly embarrassing problem in general, so regardless I need to do something about this

But what do /med/? What do?

Figure out the heartburn part because if you have acid problems that could be leading to diarrhea like symptoms. I'm not a doctor, but I do have "IBS" (bloating, irregular shits, gassy, need to lie down at night) and GERD. If your doctor diagnoses you with IBS, you can expect to trial a few medications before anything more serious.

Fix your anxiety, and these symptoms should go away. Though, they may not entirely, if there have been complications developed over time.

Under stress, the digestive process tends to start and stop and even purging can be triggered. This is pretty obviously the problem, given that it's entirely tied into your stress level.

I see what you did there.

Jokes aside, sounds pretty unpleasant. Have you tried restricting certain items such as dairy, gluten, red meat from your diet to see if there is a change? Do you drink enough water? Do you exercise? Do you get good sleep every night?

I had those symptoms but after many medical tests, nothing came back. I wasn't eating consistently because of anxiety triggered in a specific situation I'd encounter almost everyday. Sucks a lot and makes being social difficult because it plagues your mind.

Started exercising multiple times per week, and it was a little improved but not by much (I stay inside on the computer most of the time). After many failed trials, I cut out drugs (was using weed everyday for last 2 years) and saw real improvement by the 6 week mark. I had also entered gradschool when I cut out weed, so my mind was occupied with schoolwork 24/7.

My mood swings are fucking up my life.

At times I feel OK, barely chugging along. At times I feel like I'm on top of the fucking world and I'm so excited about everything that I cannot actually concentrate about anything and all I do is just day dream all day long. At times I'm just feeling miserable and cannot get out of bed and basically accomplish nothing all day.

I started getting these at around 18. Before that I was sort of OKish. Or maybe I notice it more now that I actually have stuff to do. I don't know.

Anyway I have no clue what to do. I would go to a psychiatrist but the town I grew up in has a really bad stigma against mental illness and the psychiatrist there won't really medicate you for anything unless you're so mentally fucked up you need to get locked up anyway.

I don't know what to do. I'm sick of this ride.

For the record my family has a history of mental illness and I don't do drugs or drink or smoke or anything like that.

I got pretty retarded last month and ended up cutting myself super hardcore, I'm talking DEEP gashes not lil slits. I don't cut anymore nor will I ever cut again, but I wanna heal up so my upper arm doesn't look like shit.

That's not a very helpful thing to say. I had a really bad problem with cutting for about half a year and I haven't cut myself in 3 months. I never want to do it again. The scars are embarrassing. It really sucked wearing long pants all summer.

OP, the only thing I've tried for my really bad scars is mederma, an otc ointment. It has reduced them some but they're still very noticeable. I know the pain and regret of having to see ugly scars every day, and having to hide them. Even one of my roommates, a close friend, got on my case for wearing gym shorts at night at the house (when there are no other people over) because she thought I was trying to "flaunt" the horrible scars that ran down both of my entire legs. I just wanted to be comfortable in my own home. she knew I was going through a really long time, and knew I was cutting before she saw it, but what she said really hurt.

Don't be afraid to ask your normal physician about it. They can't lock you up for scars. However, fresh cuts CAN be taken as "parasuicidal behavior" and I got involuntary commitment for that. But that was because I went to a mental crisis center when I was having a breakdown and they found them. My therapist and regular physician knew I cut and didn't try to institutionalize me.

Good luck, give the mederma a shot, and there's always concealer if you want to go through the trouble.

So I'm was scratching my dry skin with the callouses in my hand like I usually do and since my face feeling particularly dry, I was rubbing around my left eye brow and carelessly poked my eye with my thumb.

When I took my glasses off the very first thing I noticed was that I could definitely see thin objects like a wire or the side of my glasses much sharper in my right un-poked eye then my left one.

This is still the case. Now I can put on my glasses and for the most part see just fine, but is it possible I caused permanent (even if albeit minor) damage to my eye?

Smoke yourself retarded for the next week, or maybe even booze. It sounds like you have a minor scratch to your cornea or such. It takes about a week for this to heal (though there may be minor scarring) usually, and the doctors if you visit them, will likely give you a numbing eye drop and a topical antibiotic cream or ointment to apply to your eyeball.

As for the ache, is it only in the injured eye?

:/ Though, it's been a week now. It really should be getting better by now.

My food is pretty fibery. Brown rice and oatmeal are two of my staples, along with the vegetable families and fruit. I eat a LOT, probably two to three times as much as what I notice most people do, for each meal.

I only go poop about once or twice a week. The poops are medium to large in size, and come out painlessly. Compactish, but slippery. No residue on my butt to wipe. I don't experience abdominal discomfort or bloating. I don't feel constipated throughout the week. I eat more than anyone I know, poop less, and I would like to know why.

I lead an active lifestyle (Karate, jogging, bicycling), but not so active that my body burns all my food away. Or is it?

A typical breakfast: Two cups of cooked oatmeal, three bananas, a cup of blueberries, and a kale/spinach/broccoli smoothie. And a fillet of salmon. That's what I just ate, anyway.

Grains cooked the way you are cooking them, become more water than anything, as they absorb several times (donno exact numbers for this) their weight and even volume, in water. So, it might seem like more than it is.

As for the vegies, you'd probably be amazed by how little substance leafy vegetables have. Realize that one tiny brick of cooked spinach, is around the equivalent of a large bag of the raw stuff .

Though... a question. Are you sure you aren't sleep-pooping? Or otherwise pooping while intoxicated? This is fucking 420chan here man, come clean with us. Have you been boofing ambiem? HAVE YOU!?

>>53676 Technically, they say you should void at the very least once every three days. If you are looking to increase that, i'd suggest drinking more fluids, bc too much fiber and not enough liquids can lead to bowel obstruction and constipation. But if you're not having any issues with bloating, constipation, or discomfort, this may just be your normal baseline. every body is different.

I've been taking 150 mg of venlafaxine (Effexor) daily for about a year now but have decided to discontinue it due to its apparent lack of success. My doctor has me weaning off it gradually but I seem to still be getting withdrawal symptoms. I feel lightheaded and have sudden onset vertigo. I've also just started getting flu-like symptoms (body aches, weakness, chills, general malaise).

My question: Is it normal to have this bad of withdrawal symptoms from discontinuing an SSRI gradually? And if it is, is there anything I can do to ease these symptoms? Also, are flu-like symptoms common for SSRI withdrawal or am I just getting the flu? It seems really coincidental... or just really bad timing.

Effexor w/d is real, brah. Shit sucks. Took me a week to kick it cold turkey. Got all the symptoms you mention. Honestly I'd just go cold rather than taper, it's gonna suck regardless.

The shrinks I've been to have said that Effexor and Paxil are the worst for w/d, but who knows.

>Paxil are the worst for w/d, but who knows.

I do. I was on 10mg of Paxil from ages 11-18 for repetitive behaviors (aspie here), and then I went cold turkey. The withdrawal lasted a full four years, with the worst of it lasting six months, then it *very* slowly getting less severe over time. The withdrawal is a hell I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. I didn't get the commonly-described flu-like symptoms or zaps, but I did get:

-Severe insomnia
-Constant, unending migraines
-It became extremely hard to think, focus, read (reading in particular caused severe eye strain), or even understand language (partly caused by the migraines, and partly a cause of them)
-Everything stopped making sense to me unless it was explained down to the most minute detail (this is something I have a little trouble with even when I'm fine on account of my autism, but it got MUCH worse). My brain totally lost its ability to fill in the blanks and I forgot a lot of things I used to understand fine.
-Frequent panic attacks
-Frequent chest aches and trouble breathing, partially caused by the stress of everything above and partially its own withdrawal symptom.

And remember, all of this was on the lowest dose.

That's brutal, sorry to hear that. Did the drug help you at all while you were on it? Why stop?

>Did the drug help you at all while you were on it?

In hindsight, not really.

>Why stop?

Because it seemed like the behaviors had disappeared naturally after awhile (I can now confirm that they did), and ironically, because I didn't want to be physically dependent on something I might not have access to later in life.

That's a big part of why I quit Effexor. I was only on it for less than two months so that's why my w/d was so much easier than yours. I can't fucking imagine quitting after four years.

I've had intracranial hypertension since May, when a medication my doctor put me on (amitriptyline) to prevent chronic migraines. Ironically this left me with permanent damage and I have had two spinal taps since then, one in June and one in September.

I have seen an ophthalmologist and a neurologist and I am on diamoxx (250mg 3x daily) but the pain is unbearable. My MRI shows my optic nerves still have torsion on them and although the spinal fluid build up is stable, it's still there.

I have scripts for hydrocodone 5mg, morphine 10mg, and ketorolac 10mg. Is there a schedule or combination of these that I can take to consistently knock the pain out? I was considering using hydroxyzine to potentiate the opiates but I'm unsure of what the timing/dosage would be.

Go fuck yourself.

"The use of celery seed in pills for relieving pain was described by Aulus Cornelius Celsus around AD 30.[17] Celery seeds contain a compound, 3-n-butylphthalide, that has been demonstrated to lower blood pressure in rats.[18]

Celery juice significantly reduced hypertension in 87.5% of patients (14 of 16) tested.[19] Another study showed the same effect on hypertension associated with pregnancy.[20]"

Mainstream medical approval in china, and has been used for millennia to treat this type of shit. Try to do some fucking research before you talk shit on medicine.

Intracranial Hypertension is due to an excess in cerebrospinal fluid. It is not a blood pressure issue. The main concern with fluid buildup is that it can permanently damage the optic nerves and result in vision loss.

Then feed me the fluid already.

Reviving a dead thread just to say that although I still have occular nerve damage, the pain is under control and the intracranial hypertension is confirmed to be resolved!
The med combination that ended up working for me best for pain was codeine contin 100mg bid with codeine tablets prn , and 100mg Topamax qd with 500mg Diamoxx tid to manage the spinal fluid production.

Remember, if you guys ever have a really persistent stiff neck, sore eyes, and unbelievably throbbing head (like, beyond the worst sinus infection of your life), go get that shit checked. If it's what I had and you don't get it sorted, you could easily go blind.
