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

dont risk your ass matey

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.

>>53818 i suppose you could get a wad of paper towels or gauze and sit on it at the correct angle, or use your hand, but you gotta physically press the bleeding area to assist it in clotting. this is basic first aid. when you see external bleeding step 1 is always apply firm pressure

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.

Yes that does make sense, its a good way to describe it.

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'll probably end up taking a very small amount just to see how it goes.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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?

Do some actual research before you claim something to be invalid. There is NOTHING that I have recommended on this board, that isn't proven to be effective. Look up what's in every reagent, maybe you'll learn what a complete idiot you and pharmacist guy here are, especially with how redundant his posts are after what I've suggested.

> pharmacist here

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.

You're worse.

How hard is med school and should I be intimidated? I want to eventually be a doctor and take an anesthesiology residency program. I was inspired long ago by the anesthesiologist who put me to sleep when I got my wisdom teeth removed. You could see it in his face. He had an awesome goddamn job.

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.…

My sister is in her last 1 or two years and she says once you are in med school grades doesn't matter nearly as much as who you need to know. I.e it's like any other competitive field

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.

Get another doctor

Get more antibiotics

Or go to pharmacy and throw your pus ear fluid on them and demand medicine that might help you

If it's viral, get elderberry extract... or put it in muffins.

For the flem, smoke a dab in the morning. It will make your phlem taste like weed all day and help with any ache from coughing.

do not demand meds from a pharmacist, they can't give you any of their antibiotics without a prescription. Tell your doctor you want to know if you have an infection in your ear and chest, and if so, to prescribe you antibiotics.

Kill it with fire

Capsaicin fire
Eat a shit ton of really spicy chilli for a day or two, it'll clear you right up. If you're not sweating profusely and crying it's not hot enough

Should clear out your ears and sinuses and fix your chest

If this doesn't work you're being a bitch and not using enough. The next step is to punch a police officer in the face then take a really deep breath of the mace he's spraying at you, he may also beat the infection out of you
