this should be rather at ther /sports/-section, but got locked for no idkw,

Need some advice.

Going scuba-diving this summer.

Have to borrow a wetsuit.

How do I cope with the urge to pee?
I mean: It's a really big problem! Especially at the beginning but also near the end of a dive!

Any suggestions?
Heard about the method of using a condom-urinal and cutting a little hole into the suit,
but this won't be possible for me, because it's not mine.

if you're under water a wetsuit lets water in, that's how they work ffs just pee, you're already in water, you could just try to let some more water in to try and get rid of some pee

I've pissed in my wetsuit before, a while ago I got drunk and passed out at my friend's house and had to pee but couldn't move and pissed myself, I thought this feels familiar am I at work right now ? true story

"Average isoflavone intake ranged from 22 to 54 mg per day among food frequency surveys, and two studies from Japan suggest that approximately 5% of adults consume as much as 100 mg of isoflavones per day. "

"These recent studies in men consuming soyfoods or supplements containing 40--70 mg/d of soy isoflavones showed few effects on plasma hormones or semen quality."

I wouldn't say the doses were low. It doesn't diverge significantly from average consumption. For the 5% who do consume more than 100mg/d, who knows, but I imagine that that percentage is much lower in Europe/North America than in Japan.

"Few effects" are still effects, 5% is a lot of a population, and I'm sure many vegans in the US/EU are on par with the upper-end Japanese ~3 servings worth per day - especially if they eat lots of soy *and* take supplements somehow considered safe in the absence of good research into those levels. I'm not half as concerned with isoflavones effecting plasma hormone levels as with the effects of the isoflavones themselves. From all that I gather, the only takeaway I come up with is the importance of moderation. The little-bit-of-many-things philosophy applies to almost every aspect of life.

There has never been any data to support the assertion that phytoestrogens do dick to adult humans (other than perhaps decrease your risk of certain types of cancer), and even other animal studies are contradictory and inconclusive. Now, neonatal exposure is another ball game entirely.

Might not be the right board, but I figured someone might have some information for me.
I've been having some mild - moderate back pain for the last 4 weeks or so, progressively getting worse and worse.
I've been taking ibuprofen, but 400mg really only helps a little bit and only for about an hour.
It's in the middle of my back mostly, and sometimes my neck. It's almost the kind of pain that knocks the wind out of you a little bit, if that makes sense.
Now, I've noticed, I only get this pain on days that I work (fast food, in the grill), about 2 hours into my shift usually. Once the pain starts its with me for the rest of the day. Sometimes the pain starts on my off days too but not as bad. Sometimes the pain will subside for a little bit then come back. Sitting after work relieves the pain substantially, but if I sit for too long, say an hour or two, it comes back just as painfully.

What exactly is a 'muscle spasm'? I always thought it was like a twitching or something of muscle...

This may or may not be related, but about the same time I stopped my daily cannabis use, is when I started noticing pain, and as my cannabis use grew to a complete halt as of two weeks ago, it's been substantially worse.

I'm just curious as to what exactly causes this kind of pain? I have a general checkup in 2 days with my physician and I will be bringing it up then.

I tend to slouch when I sit, but I've been actively making myself sit up straight but to no avail. I've also noticed cracking my back either doesnt help, or actually makes it worse too.

I've never had a problem with serious back pain like this before!
P.S. I know I posted this on /qq/, I didn't know there was a health board, I mainly browse the drug boards lol

I know no more than the next guy here, but that's quite a bit. Judging from your posts here, you are quick to insult, write like an angry high school student, erect straw men, and fail to apply the dictations of logic. Just for the pleasure of reviewing things:
>u got links i got years experience
Experience in what? Chiropractic care, massage therapy, orthopedics, writing? If that's the case, why not refute Henry's advice with intelligent civil discourse? Even if you're omniscient, you still have to present your knowledge in a convincing manner, lest you miss the entire point of communication. "I have experience" is not a valid refutation, especially if you leave it at that. It doesn't help that you run on writing is important the point is missed if you can't english not to mention it makes you less credible. See?
>no offense but u actually dont fuckin have a clue.
You dont even know who he is or what he does. <-- You used that same defense for yourself, and yet you first assumed that you know everything about this guy.
>"dont go to people with years of experience and education in body correction its PSEUDOSCIENCE,
Henry refuted your uneducated response long before you started claiming vast experience and education in body correction. If you had started with experience and education as your authority to refute his post, (you know, instead of "u actually dont have a fuckin clue" and "i got years experience") maybe you would have gotten somewhere.
>get pills lel"
No one suggested pills. You have erected a straw mane, mane.

If shizophrenia --> excess Dopamine receptors, and
if abusing drug --> downregulation of receptors. then

Could I slow the onset of schizophrenia by taking stimulants? Stimulants seem to make the world so clear and thinking so sharp, so it seems like it would help.

  1. The dopamine hypothesis concerns an excess of dopamine receptor activation via signal transduction. Not an excess of dopamine receptors.
  2. "The theory, however, does not posit dopamine overabundance as a complete explanation for schizophrenia. Rather, the overactivation of D2 receptors, specifically, is one effect of the global chemical synaptic disregulation observed in this disorder."
  3. " It is also supported by the fact that amphetamines, which trigger the release of dopamine, may exacerbate the psychotic symptoms in schizophrenia." [1]

You can give it a try, but in the short term, I think you'll greatly worsen the symptoms of schizophrenia by taking stimulants.

Schizophrenics often report that cigarettes ease their symptoms. Of course that's complicated by the fact that nicotine can have a sedative effect in relatively lower doses over relatively longer time periods (i.e. chainsmoking - as you'll most often see schizophrenics doing). Many studies demonstrate that cigarette smoking and schizophrenia are correlated but is it causational or are they self-medicating to manage symptoms?

Anyway, the subject at hand - OP I'm willing to bet that any potential benefit would be more than offset by the comedowns/withdrawals. Also, look up stimulant psychosis syndrome. Many symptoms are shared, the main difference being the chronic nature and thought disorder of schizophrenia. Stimulant abuse has also been shown to worsen psychosis of individuals with schizophrenia.

nb why is this still on page 1? :( I want more /med/, even if it has to be people posting pictures of their dick sores.

Hi med, how do I use the Levothyroxine?
Do I take an amount, stay on it until the TSH value becomes stable, then add some more and repeat it again until I reach the desired TSH value?
And is it dangerous to use it for working out?
I heard that the synthesized amount of T3 converted from T4 can help regenerating the body better the more you get, until some limit of course.

I'd probably use it the way your doctor prescribed. What's this about working out? Oh you're taking a potentially dangerous medicine for recreation? Ask /fit/. Hair loss is a common symptom, so since you're taking this stuff to try and be pretty I think that might put you off doing so better than mentioning the health risks.

Is there any real way for me to determine whether or not what just happened to me was a mild seizure?

I had been taking large quantities of etizolam daily, and then moderate doses of flubromazolam after that (nothing too insane, I think at one point 1.75-2 milligrams. Then obviously I ran out.

I haven't felt any real withdrawal symptoms, unless depression counts, but I was already depressed. I took a very large quantity of doxylamine and melatonin before trying to sleep a few hours ago, but only succeeded in drifting in and out slightly, which is normal for me. But around 3 AM I got sick of it and drank a few shots of liquor to try to help me relax and sleep. I realize now that was fucking stupid because alcohol lowers the seizure threshold.

Maybe half an hour after this while lying in bed, I started hearing music, it seemed like actual music, not just something you're remembering in your head. It wasn't a song I could recognize. Shortly after that I got lightheaded, felt cold, and started shaking violently. It passed pretty quickly, or at least I think it did. I think I was able to move my hand during it, but I'm not completely sure. I guess there's no real way for anyone here to help, I'm just not sure if I need to seek medical attention.

Sorry to hear that. Doxylamine, I think has a dose limit where any more than say twice the recommended dosage is more hazardous than it is worth trying to sleep taking much
much more. Where sleep is in and out of sleep disturbances rather than actual sleep.

If twice the recommended dosage for sleep does not work, leave it be I would say.

Good luck, try to keep away from the rc drugs, some sound to be pretty hazardous
on their own. Not trying to sound like the dea spokesperson or whatever, but one
spokesperson did bring up a point. (Emphasized) 'were not trying to prosecute users,'
but just a warning to please be careful, that the drugs could be produced in an impure or
crude manner that could have unwanted effects.

I'm not a doctor but do have experience working in the hair & skincare industry, some health & wellness too. It's hard to say anything because your pic is showing very warm toned, wondering what it would look like if you toned the warm tones of your photo down, lightened it some & maybe adjust the contrast a tad. From what I see it looks a tad like a possible fungal infection. You have to be careful because it's near your eye but a little online research will show several natural products that can be of benefit to dealing w/fungus. To start try a little organic unprocessed coconut oil (great for skin, hair or taken internally. Has anti microbial, anti fungal properties, absorbs really well into skin.) it melts w/contact to the skin so in your clean hands I'd mix a dab of coconut oil w/1 or all of the following; a couple drops of grapefruit seed extract (can be taken internally too, very anti fungal, anti bacterial, etc), 1 drop of teatree oil (anti fungal, anti microbial good for a variety of issues, smells bad DO NOT get this into your eyes, nose or mouth it will burn real bad, a drop of oregano oil (anti fungal, can be taken orally also.
That should be a good starting point. I'd mix a small amount in your hand or a tiny bowl, mix only what you'll need for 1-2 applications because to make enough to last you days on end would require some other steps to prevent bacteria, preserve it, etc. after you've mixed coconut oil w/the extracts &/or essential oils dab a small amount onto your spot 1-2 a day for a week. Make sure you always wash your hands especially before & after you touch this spot so you don't transfer any bacteria to it or from it to other body parts or people. This is a very safe combination to try & at the very least will be soothing. Remember not to get it into your eye! The coconut oil becomes a liquid very easy so a tiny dab on the spot will do, you don't want your mix to run into the eye. Wash hands when done. I'd also go a step further & tell you to wash your face every day w/something mild like Cetaphil & frequently wash your washcloths, towels, sheets, etc just in case this is anything that can r…

Hey guys,

A few months ago, I visited a dermatologist after a year and a half of inexplicable hair shedding and scalp redness, and I was diagnosed with seborrheic dermatitis and prescribed topical steroids and Nizoral shampoo to put it in remission. This eventually got it under control, but since then it's kept flaring back up. I've worked on many of the main culprits: I've been sleeping properly, I'm not stressed, and I've cut back on the amount of alcohol I drink and junk food I eat, but it's really persistent, and when it comes back it typically takes a week or so to get back under control. Google searches provide a lot of conflicting and/or dubious information, so I decided to see if you guys would have any ideas about how to prevent these flare-ups. Thank you.

The dermatologist visit was really productive. She found:

1) I don't just have SD; I also have telogen effluvium, which is the main culprit for my hair loss (my SD is much more under control than I realized at this point)
2) My instincts to stop using the steroids were correct.
3) She told me to stop using dandruff shampoo daily, and to use conditioner as well
4) She said I should take a biotin supplement until my TE gets under control and my hair grows back
5) She told me to go on Rogaine for a year to speed up the recovery process.
6) I shouldn't just be cutting back on drinking and fast food/junk food. I need to completely eliminate them from my diet. Beyond that I don't need to make any special dietary changes (I had been reading stuff online that also said to cut out a shitload of potential food allergens like citrus fruit, wheat, and dairy as well)
7) I should schedule an appointment with my GP for blood tests to see if I have any vitamin deficiencies, anemia, or autoimmune problems.

As someone with the same issue, I alternate between selson blue and head and shoulders.
I recently went to see a rheumatologist for an unrelated issue and she brought up a point that this might exist (or at least so prominently) as a sign of immune system issues and certain things could be linked, but that's as far as I've gotten between visits. Next time you see your GP or whatever, try asking a few additional questions about it and see where it goes.

Don't scratch at it. It only makes it worse by making it thicker and more active. I've got it through psoriasis and in the past few years it's popped up on my legs and as nail psoriasis. The nail stuff comes and goes but boy is it annoying. Makes it way too easy to catch my nails on things and get hurt. I haven't experienced any hair loss unless I excessively scratch at it. Steroids help but only short-term. Aloe vera can be beneficial but you have to apply it like 4+ times a day. Drinking aloe vera gel is effective but makes my tummy rumbly.

>I haven't experienced any hair loss unless I excessively scratch at it.

I imagine this made things much worse for me. When it first started, the main issue was that my scalp would get really greasy, which made my hair clump together and look like it was thinning. To cover it up, I'd comb obsessively. After about a year and a half I stopped doing this and the shedding decreased by half (though it was still a lot).

I recently got my bloodwork back from my GP. Most things came back normal (no autoimmune issues or anything like that), but my HDL cholesterol levels are very low (39mg/dL).

Inadvertent 36 hours without starch. Now actively avoiding starch to keep this up. Light headedness is kicking in.

What to expect? Can I exercise? I feel mildly drunk everywhere I go. I'm gonna go drink 3-5 drinks in a few hours. ST FUCKING PATTY DAYS NEGROESSSS.

Bombastus, why you trying to induce ketosis man? Generally speaking, people shouldn't induce ketosis without medical supervision. I recommend smoking weed and getting some opis, but you probably already know that.

You're going to feel like shit, and you should probably chill with a dietician. Living dat ketogenic lifestyle puts a lot of strain on your shit, so take it easy with the chems. Stick to the med-x. Nb because bN

holy wow the pain. I've had them in episodic bouts for a few years now. I've tried drugs and injections but they dont seem to be too effective.

The only thing that has seemed semi-effective is drinking a full glass of water every 30 mins at least. That only reduced the number I get by about half.

Im wondering what anyone here might do to help with them. I've read that high doses of oxygen via masks can be effective, anyone have experience with it?

Thirding that, but only if you can handle tripping, it isnt everyones cup of tea.

If you do decide trying it, make sure to read up as much as you can on their effects and see if youre comfortable with the idea. Never push yourself into taking hallucinogenic substances unless you genuinely feel like taking them. Always weight the pros and cons before. Might be worth posting on /psy/

The docu in question is called Drugs Inc.
I'm not sure which episode, but it might be worth checking out, maybe you can track down the dude.

OP, your cluster headaches could stem from over-exertion in the muscles of your neck, like you might need to relax your neck. Or, you could have a problem with the flow of blood in your brain. A neurologist can really help you. Also, Excedrine also helps a ton.

My neurologist cured my migraines by giving me muscle relaxers. I take them before bed, my neck muscles relax a ton, and I honestly haven't had a migraine in months now that I think about it, where as I used to get them daily and then load up on excedrine.
