Shoulder bruise and working out by Betsy Cezzlewedge - Mon, 08 Feb 2016 04:12:45 EST ID:pCQaag/J No.53777 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Got thrown in my Judo class, landed on my shoulder. It made a cracking sound and hurt, like 6-7 out of 10 on pain scale. Went straight to coach, he checked it and told me it's a bruise. I have no reason to doubt him.

Anyway I continued sparring and got thrown on the same shoulder and pain was a solid 8, I got cold sweat from pain and went home.

Today, two days later, it still hurts a bit when I move it, but otherwise it is normal. I can do pushups with little pain.

Can I go to the gym today and work through the pain if it's not that bad?
Would it be wise to go to judo practice today again?

If you can, try going to a veterinarian. Their specialty isn't humans but their training makes them generally good enough to operate on humans.

If you're willing to pay a teensy bit more then they're used (which is still less then you would spend on a human doctor) then you can get some good fucking treatment at an affordable price.

I've been subluxing joints every single day and will be using a wheelchair in a few months but nobody has yet suggested I try anything stronger than an NSAID, which doesn't touch the pain.

Best bet is to talk with your doctor about your chronic pain and how you aren't able to work/play/lift the kids etc.
Say that you want something stonger just to use for those days when you need it. Family Dr should be ok but not all doctors do the same with opiates

Hello,
Most doctors would have no objection to offering tramadol as opposed
to basic opiates. You likely can straight out ask for it as opposed to hinting.
It does have less addiction and abuse potential I would say and is known
to be, at least by doctors and prescribed as such for longer term use.

Comes in 50 to 100 mgs. Has like a 4 6 8 hour duration in pain relief which can carry over
longer with basic use. It has some antidepressant qualities to it so ask your doctor about
that aspect if you think it may be an issue. Eh, maybe just do so just for good faith working
relations working for what works best for both you and your physition.

IIbuprophen is a good compliment with this. Ask for a script for Ibuprophen as
opposed to paying over-the-counter costs for Ibuprofen.

CommentExternal hemorrhoid burst. Didn't find a clot or anything, probably just forgot myself and sat on something hard. No real pain since,some occasional pangs. Problem is the damn thing won't stop bleeding, I guess it reopens since it's a difficult spot. It's been 24h and it barely slowed down (hard to tell). It's not a geyser or anything, but I need to apply gauze down there to keep clothes (moderately) clean.

I get conflicting accounts on the internet, some people go on not giving a fuck and it goes away in a week, others are convinced you absolutely must go into surgery. Is this serious or can I ignore it for x amount of time? I'm technically NEET (trying to worm my way into internet freelance) and theoretically I could reactivate "free" healthcare if I formally looked for (shit) work via an agency, but that's a ton of waiting in the govt unemployment office (meaning a lot of standing and sitting around) and I can see it going all kinds of wrong. Also having to go around asking for unskilled work you don't really want from people who'll shit on you in "interviews" to keep healthcare going gives me all kinds of apprehensiveness.

any external bleeding needs to have firm pressure applied until the blood vessels form a clot and the bleeding stops. this is especially important when the bleeding is near the rectum, where fecal matter is present. the body does a pretty astonishing job of filtering the blood through multiple organs, so don't panic if there was a tiny bit of exposure, but definitely minimize that as much as possible

once you have stopped the bleeding (paper towels or gauze, ideally), then go get some hemorrhoid cream and apply it consistently. if these methods are not solving your problem then you need to speak with a doctor

Thanks for the quick reply.

When you mean "apply pressure" you mean manually reach there and press for x amount of time or maybe stuff a ton of gauze in there to the point where it applies considerable pressure?

I already had a cream, but it gave me mild burning, which according to the instruction is a side effect. It writes that in this case I should discontinue its use--should i buy another product or ignore the warning? I think I already know the answer... money wasted.

So. I've never had constipation in my entire life. (It's always the innocent ones with stories to report, isn't it?)

I feel like I nearly died of fecal impaction a few moments ago. I only recently stopped bleeding anally and I'm still monitoring it.

It was all so sudden! How could this have happened to me? How?!?!?

DXM and methadone.

Right now, I want to quit methadone and never do any opiates ever again. I also want to never eat again and I'm marginally suicidal if I can't be guaranteed to never pass a stool of that size again.

How stuck? How big? How painful?

I passed a very stuck, very big, very painful bowel a few hours ago that made me bleed slightly from anal tearing. That was but merely childsplay for what came next. I thought the bowel behind it would cooperate if I demonstrated monk like patience and warrior like force. My panic grew for nearly half an hour when efforts to heave and ho kept reversing my progress. I freaked out so bad I used my fingers. Then upon some internet research on how serious fecal impaction was, I debated calling 911. But first I tried a saline laxative enema.

Oh man this happens to me every time I do opiates. Stop crapping for 5 days then it all comes out as a single brick that tears its way through my anal sphincter.

My best advice is to take regular stool softeners when you are doing opiates. Think fibre - green leafy veges and pure bran are great. You can also get pharmacy stuff - lactulose does basically the same thing as bran but it is a liquid you can drink 20mLs of. They don't give you the shits, just soften up everything to chocolate soft serve

Well that's still possible. Remeber you are putting stuff in the top via your mouth so the softeners have to travel though the gut to the other end to work which takes a day or so. Any hard feces that's already at the bottom will still be there and this wont have any effect on that. But if you take stool softeners BEFORE you need them in the future then you shall be all good

I've been on 150mg Venlafaxine daily until recently and started with 75mg/day about 3 weeks ago. My doctor wants me on these for another month and then finally another month on 37.5mg.

But I'd prefer to be off it right now, mainly because I want to be taking Ecstasy at a festival that takes place in a little over 2 months.

My question is simple really, would it be okay for me to go cold-turkey off these right now or is it very important to follow the downsizing plan I currently have?

Thanks for your input.

The times I missed a dose I've had quite an unpleasant feeling in my body as if my blood pressure was really low, no shakes or chills really but then again the most I went without was less than 48 hours.

Afaik when concering SSRI's and Ecstasy, you should at least have been off your meds for a month. Should head over to /mdma/ and make a similar thread I guess, I got a lot of good info from those guys when I just started my medication (and wondered if there was any point at all to take E's, in which, there aren't.).

This is pretty common. I had the same thing. I got this weird whooshy feeling in my head, kinda like what happens when you get up too quickly, but when I was sitting down and in bursts of two or three whooshes at a time. (hopefully that made sense) I looked this up and Dr Internet tells me that it's related to low blood pressure.

Decided to go off them early anyway. Trying to find out more regarding how long I should wait before taking MDMA but.. I doubt there's any real science available and will most likely just hear "educated" guesses.

I have done it a lot quicker. just go for 5 days on each decreased dose. Even 5 days is generious. This is in terms of acute withdrawals though of which I didn't really get any. Your doctor might be worried more about mood swings and that is why is is decreasing it so slowly.

Go to the hospital as soon as you can. You can get post-exposure prophylaxis if it's been 72 hours since your exposure. However, the fact that you believe you're already suffering from symptoms would suggest that it's been a much longer time since exposure. Are you aware that it takes at least a few weeks for HIV to develop symptoms and that after an initial flu-like outbreak that the disease can lie latent for a long period of time? It is possible if your exposure was recent that you are suffering from a psychogenic malaise rooted in your anxiety rather than HIV symptoms.

Still go and get yourself tested. I was in a similar boat as OP; at one point I was engaging in risky sexual behavior, didn't initially get tested because I was afraid of having it, and didn't get tested for about a year because of my nerves (all the while keeping abstinent just in case). I starting having symptoms like chronic fatigue, followed by recurring mouth ulcers and consistently swollen lymph nodes for a period of a few months which led me to convince myself I had it for sure.

I eventually went to a free clinic and got a full-spectrum STD test which came back negative for everything. I felt very thankful and relieved. I continued investigating through seeing different doctors and specialists to see what was actually causing my symptoms, and it turned out I had Celiac Disease which still sucks but it's not that much a big deal, especially when changing my diet cured all my symptoms. The anxiety/fear definitely took a toll on my mental and physical health all the same.

OP, even if you do end up being HIV+, in our time it's not a death sentence like it once was UNLESS you do not receive proper treatment. Treatment can stop symptoms and even make it non-transmissible; HIV+ people can end up leading full, happy lives. I feel disclosure is still important, mind you; the heavy stigma still surrounding the disease is probably the worst thing you'd have to deal with.

Please stay safe.

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.

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. Take note of this; http://www.heart.org/HEARTORG/Conditions/HeartAttack/PreventionTreatmentofHeartAttack/Aspirin-and-Heart-Disease_UCM_321714_Article.jsp

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...

Feeling good when i wake up for 20-30 minutes by Charlotte Broshwater - Mon, 08 Feb 2016 09:07:57 EST ID:GvvLLpX1 No.53779 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

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 ~.

Difficulty swallowing. by Nathaniel Pockbanks - Thu, 04 Feb 2016 08:30:25 EST ID:Itn1ZGKc No.53759 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

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
