Yeah that's all true, but you aren't doing your cause justice by coming off the way you are.

Widespread use of antibiotics, primarily in our food systems (in factory meat farms), is placing artificial evolutionary pressures on bacteria and other micro-organisms, and is causing the emergence of bacteria resistant to our antibiotics. We're abusing a valuable medicine to the effect of rendering it useless in the long term.

Similar criticisms could be made about the infiltration of business-economics in our vaccination programs, which are IVing into children upwards of 20,000x more mercury and formaldehyde than is permitted by the EPA's maximum exposure limits. And let alone the fact that mere exposure and a direct shot to your blood-brain barrier are very different things, or that developing humans are far more vulnerable to the effects of mercury and formaldehyde poisoning than adults, or that the diseases which we vaccinate against had already declined substantially over 100 years ago around the time when we started living in more sanitary environments, or the fact that we can treat measles, mumps, rubella, influenza, and tetanus effectively without harsh vaccinations.

Yeah, I've had the same feeling before when a mole directly in the center of my chest, almost as if it were a holy trinity with my nipples, was removed to test for cancer when I was a kid; luckily nothing was there, but it all comes down to identity and who you see yourself as; there was once a survey for how people felt once they were tested positive for HIV/AIDS, and at first people obviously did not like it at all but once certain people found out that their positive was a false-positive, they were actually more disappointed and even sadder than when they found out they had contracted HIV because they lost their identity.

Sooner or later you'll identify whom you are without your gallbladder, but the more important thing is to truly know who you are and accept it.

Hey /med/, I have made a doctor's appointment to take a look at this, but the soonest availability is like 2 weeks from now. So I figured you guys might be able to help me out for the time being, as my symptoms seem to be developing further.

Basically, I have been experiencing this warm sensation in my butt cheek/thigh. It began 5 days ago and it was just a thin band of warmth running down the outside of my leg, and it would come and go for a few seconds intermittently throughout the day, like someone pouring warm water down my leg. Now, starting yesterday, it has gotten stronger and wider, it doesn't feel like a single narrow band, it's more like radiating heat across my butt cheek like I'm sitting on half of a heating pad, and it is present for more than a few seconds, and seems to be more frequent.

Googling this has led to a handful of ideas, from Sciatica, to spinal damage, to a neurological disorder. I'm not terribly concerned right now because it isn't actually painful, but the feeling of an uncontrollable heating pad on one side of my butt is starting to approach 3/10 on the "annoyed for no good reason" scale.

So, yeah, any ideas? What it might be, what could I do in the short term to relieve it?

Thanks for reading!

99.9% of the time this is "sciatica" due to piriformis syndrome, i.e. the piriformis being chronically hypertonic and impinging the sciatic nerve, often due to improper gait or standing/sitting posture, which eventually leads to inflammation of the myelin sheath of the nerve, causing tingling/warm/cold/burning/numbness/weakness. do piriformis stretches, here are 3:

>the "pigeon pose" from yoga, making sure to keep your front shin perpendicular to the direction you are facing

>lie on floor on back. cross the sore leg over your good leg, shin on thigh, then reach through and pull your bottom knee up to your chest

>sit on a chair, cross one leg over, shin on thigh. keeping your chest out and chin out, lean forward at the waist until you feel a stretch in the butt area.

also you can use a foam roller (don't get the stupid gimmicky ones with bumps or grids, just get a flat cylinder), tennis ball, or lacrosse ball to massage the area, sitting on it tilted to one hip at a time.

also applying heat (my favorite is a hot water bottle) - can be electric heating pad, Thermacare patches from walgreens/walmart, microwavable pouch of beads or seeds or whatever, or even just some fist-sized stones heated up in a pot of water then wrapped in a thin cloth - to the area for 1 hr or more will help.

basically when muscles are tight, heat, pressure, and stretching will alleviate it. if after genuinely trying these things to relax the piriformis your symptoms do not change, then it could possibly be a disc or spine issue, meaning you would need to try chiro/pt and maybe ortho surgery, but this is very rare and wouldn't just appear out of nowhere in most cases

it could possibly be the early stage of a sarcoma/carcinoma, but it could also just be an unusual pimple, a result of acne, psoriasis, a burn (were you blackout drunk recently?), an allergic reaction, or just sensitive skin with no discernible cause. if you smoke or drink, try to reduce that. otherwise, just observe it. if it grows in size or changes shape/color/texture, see a doctor about it. if you are a fancy nobleman then see an oncologist, or at least dermatologist.

How do I stop my tinnitus? I hear it all day and it keeps me up every night. I have a fan going and I play wave videos on youtube but it's still shite. I know lots of other people deal with it too.
Also if I press my cheekbone in or clench my jaw really hard it gets louder and higher pitched, why is this?

It gets louder for me if I am in contact with a lot of loud noises during the day, so avoid them.

White / brown / pink noise will drown it out and help you sleep. And you get used to it with time, it won't always be annoying for you, but you are probably stuck with it forever

i mean, the whole thing is down to electrical and chemical reactions. im sure its possible to fuck up those reactions in a way to give a false positive of a high pitched ringing. or maybe to fuck up the bones, eardrums, etc., even without loud sound. im no ENT though

As far as I know, tinnitus is provoked by the physical destruction of the hair cells inside your ear.
I'm not saying it's impossible, but I wonder how drugs could produce a similar effect.

I take Lamictol/Lambipol for my Bipolarity but also know it is an anti-epileptic.

I also happen to have a huge, huge dependency on Xanax. It can range from 6 to 15mg a day. It's been going on for 10 years. Sometimes I'll take an entire box in a night and I won't feel a thing, honestly.

Anyway.. I want out of this. I'm not getting high. This is a maintenance dose.

Would Lamictol make for a faster taper due to its anti-epileptic attributes?

I'm not gonna stop cold turkey. But if I do... I will go full seizure mode right?

Thanks in advance guys.

I don't know. See a doctor. If you can't, then call a pharmacy in your area or visit one and honestly explain your situation. Tell them all the medications you take, including supplements. I would also suggest telling them that you're bipolar in case benzo withdrawal can lead to mania or depression, at least one of which you're predisposed to, as it could help them somehow.


Benzo withdrawal can kill you. Seizures aren't the only terrible thing you'll have to deal with. This isn't the time to experiment if you don't have to.

I agree, ten years is a fuckton of time to be on benzos, you should probably come clean and tell your doctor or pharmacy.

I take lamotrigine/lamictal too for bipolar disorder and I don't think it would help you to get off benzos faster. It's gonna take a LONG time to taper; you don't want to experiment and screw it up.

I took 3 mgs of Clonazepam for about two years in my most recent prescription (taking benzos on and off for 5-6 years). While tapering off Clonazepam, I happened to be taking 200mg of Lamictal a day for mood stabilization, so that was considered a buffer against any threat of epilepsy, according to my psychiatrist.

I was really afraid while tapering off Clonazepam, but no two people withdrawal the same. I think the biggest threat is psyching yourself out. I hope you get out of this, too, because after years of using this stuff it really, really starts to change us.

I had a very painless withdrawal, no physical side effects and a very short period of stressing over whether or not I would have a panic attack or something. I never did. I dropped from 3 to 2.5, to 1.5, to nothing. About a span of 30 days in between each drop.

One thing I wish I hadn't done: read a bunch of shit on the internet about benzo withdrawal. You're psyching yourself out. I did the same thing. You will DOUBTLESSLY find posts about people having a hard time, but take it slow and it really helps if you can tell someone in your life what is going on. I think the most psychological agonizing part of withdrawal is feeling alone. You got any friends, good friends? Family? Love is a potent thing when you're up against fear.

I wish you peace of mind, whether or not you're going through the taper, because no one deserves to be chained to a substance like this.

Taking Lamictal won't necessarily make your withdrawal any better, so it might still be better to stick to a normal taper schedule, to reduce risk of relapse

I was explaining the word "bruise" to a learner who didn't know it and the phrase "black eye" and I was talking about how we always call them black but they can be lots of colours.. they start pink.. then go purple... then black.. purple.. then blue.. then green.. then yellow.. and finally fade away

but it occurred to me that this might be a white thing, with white skin being so transparent

Well this is clearly a stupid question so I thought I'd ask on here, what colour is your skin and what colours do bruises go for you?

its the same as white people but with the darkness of the skin color overlaid. so on a black person there is still a brown/black component of the bruising, its just a little harder to see because there is less contrast. think of tattoos on a black person

if its a wart you can oxygen starve it until it shrinks a bit, if oxygen starving doesn't shrink it it probably isn't a wart. coats of nail polish will help oxygen starve it.

Whatever it is don't cut it open. You have lots of options, file it down, burn it off with mild acid.. don't cut it open.. there are lots of home remedy's for warts and if it isn't one of them i think you should go to a doctor

I'll try to keep this sort enough to fit in the OP. I'm sorry this post will be long and maybe not organized well but I have a lot of fucking problems and this is just scratching the surface.
Tell you what, I'll try to make the next post a more concise tl;dr.

Basically I have a litany of health problems going on for 4-10+ years now, varying in severity over time.
The key things are:
1) high blood pressure/chest pains, under control until recently
2) alcoholism for most of 4 years, details below
3) nonstop depression and insomnia, increasingly severe last few weeks
4) crippling social anxiety
5) tingling sometimes verging on pain in hands/arms for months at least, maybe a year
6) I guarantee there's something I'm forgetting but insomnia wrecks my memory and focus

The depression and anxiety have waxed and waned over the years (dealing with both for a solid decade) but have hit another terrible low to the point it's almost impossible to deal with strangers face to face. I've missed dozens of psych and other dr. appointments because of these. As is I'd say I'm crying myself to sleep every day, but whenever I do fall unconscious for an hour or two it's not what I'd call sleep because I barely feel rested at all.
This has been going on for all of recent memory, even despite a couple months without any beer/liquor in me. (Which drs. have said is an absolute NO for the rest of my life due to organ damage.) A few days, maybe a week ago I bought a 6 pack and drank it over ~12 hours because I needed any diversion from the pain and ever since things have been even worse, sort of like a post-acute withdrawal.
Because of this my BP/pulse have been spiking, I'm taking maybe 7-10 clonidine pills every 24h (prescribed 3/day and supposed to be weaning off). I'm also taking ~50-100mg a day of toprol which is more than usual. Dr wants me on 100mg a day but he just can't accept that I can't handle going through the day with a pulse in the 40s-50s. (It's higher after that 6 pack ofc.)

Sorry this is so long but it's a struggle just to type anything coherent. Thinking about how many people could help but refuse to has made me cry pretty much the entire time I've been working on this.

Anyway I have depression, insomnia, and social anxiety so extreme they're crippling. I haven't had a job in 4 years and have NEVER held one even a year because they always come back in full force eventually.
Recent events have finally convinced me to talk to a disability lawyer like people have told me for years. I just didn't because I'm terrified of strangers and doubtful I'd get anything without visible issues.

But I post because I'm at my breaking point. Basically I need medicines to get the depression and insomnia under control at least long enough to see a therapist again, but nothing I tried works anymore. I've been bugging my dr. for most of a year now and haven't got jack shit new and he always brushes it off when I mention it.
I think a small part of it might be that I'm (incorrectly) labeled a drug seeker (that's another story) but right now I really need something like valium to knock me out because I tried 5 or 6 other pills for nothing. I also need another antidepressant and I don't even think those are narcotics yet I can't get jack shit. Not even a fucking referral to a specialist but I think he'll finally send me to a neurologist soon.


Why will nobody help me? What the fuck am I doing wrong? All I want to do is get back to being a functional human being, able to get and hold a job, not mooching off my parents until I'm in my 30s. That or apply for disability if I really am beyond hope. At this point I don't care if I have to get addicted to something else (like with my heart pills already) as long as I can function and feel alive again. With any luck I could stop taking them after enough therapy. It did help years back about as much as old meds.

WHY CAN I NOT GET SOMETHING THAT HELPS AFTER SUFFERING FOR SO MANY YEARS? WHY WILL THESE FUCKERS NOT HELP? TO WHAT FUCKING EXTREME DO I HAVE TO GO?
At this point i'm thinking about going to the hospital and telling them i'll kill myself if they don't give me pills to feel like a person again if my dr. doesn't do something when I see him.
Should I write a letter or something (shorter than this ofc) for him to read? I don't know if it's not understanding, not caring, or somehow not being able to help.

Well I'm feeling somewhat better now. Pretty embarrassing that I can't delete this public breakdown but I guess part of the problem was a need to vent.
Fuck knows how it will work out but I'm working up the nerve to make the calls now. Thank fuck I remembered I have valerian pills which gave me some sleep combined with other stuff.
Anyway in a rare bit of luck, a friend mentioned out of nowhere that he got some bud and I should come over to help "burn the evidence" so to speak. All I have to do is help him build a pipe which is no problem.
I choose to take that as a good sign because no one medicine has helped me more than the herb.

I need a way to shoot acetylcholine into my brain without sucking on poison sticks

I had those little disposable e-cigs but they fucking suck, the Blu brand ones anyways, before all this I was getting Zoom or something but I moved and can't find them anywhere here

I started going off the e-cigs when I was broke for a bit and bought some of those cigarillos teens use to roll blunts, but I've heard awful things about them so I bought a pack of cigarettes (American Spirit, for a placebo effect type of 'hey this isn't that bad' feeling). One doesn't give me that 'nicotine dizziness' I've noticed from a rapid succession of tobacco/e-cig inhales unless I smoke it pretty much to the face. And all this time, while at first limiting the smoke to my mouth seemed to work, I am now circulating the entirety of the smokework through my lungs

This can't be good. But what do I do? I can assert I'm not addicted as I can go a couple of days without tobacco and not get withdrawals (haven't tested any longer periods). I use it more as a meditative aid. But my meditative aids shouldn't kill me. I'd vape, but one is like 40 bucks and I'm not about to drop that money unless I know it's as efficient as the cigarillos seem to be

26/female/185 pounds/Hashimoto's thyroiditis hypothyroidism

The last two weeks I've been having some craaaazy head pressure. Feels like my hair is being pulled very tightly away from my scalp. I had hair very long and thick, down to my butt, that I recently cut just to get relief. I cut it very short and still no relief. When this intense head pressure happens, I get insanely nauseous. My salivary glands on the insides of my cheek tingle and water. I get double/blurry vision/light sensitive and especially nauseous in the light. My neck is stiff and it's driving me nuts. I'm constantly opening my mouth or yawning to try and relieve the pressure in my head and ears. It's not painful, just extremely uncomfortable.
I will have an "episode" and it'll get worse and then back to manageable where I can still take care of my kids. I feel very brain foggy, light headed, confused. This has been going on for two weeks and I scheduled with neurology and my appointment is in NOVEMBER.
I know I can't wait until then. I feel very just... weird, spacey and out of my body. The head pressure is constant, even in sleep. Motion makes it worse like driving, getting up and walking. I feel very dizzy and about to pass out when I'm motion so I try and just keep to the couch. I'm not sure if at this point I should go to the ER.

If I were having those symptoms, I would call my neurologist's answering service (since it's Sunday) and explain how bad everything was and see if I could get an appointment for the beginning of the week.

If I couldn't I'd go to the ER.

Another possibility would be to go to urgent care or see a family physician early in the week in the hope that they'd refer you to a neurologist quickly. It sucks, but specialists will take other doctors seriously before they take their own patients seriously.

Go to an urgent care center. Far cheaper than an emergency room visit, and they should be able to tell if it's something serious or not, at the least.

First n foremost find a doctor, maybe try an WNT since ur issues sound sinus related
If that isnt an option, look into the following:
Netti pot:sinus irrigation
Light yoga/exercise:do it slowly at first, but regularly, like daily
Diet:theres a wealth of info on healthy dieting online. Try to eat healthy!
In ny experience a shot of liqour or a glass of wine/beer can actually provide a bit of insight and relief for mysterious health issues. Obv. Dont get drunk or overdo it, just see how u react to it. This is a process
And remember to take time to just relax, tune everything out, and listen to your thoughts. Try to find clues physically that might lead you towards relief or just insight. Remember to focus on ur breathing and if this produces anxiety you should try deep and slow breathing and yoga(start light plz). Some people do best with combining meditation(listening to your thoughts/body) with 'chanting' or basically ohming or humming in laymens terms. It rly helps to control ur breathing and any anxiety, also opens the throat and sinuses via vibrations and air pressure.

You may be going through a change physically that will be challenging and confusing, so perhaps youll have to just take things slower for a while and try some of the things ive suggested. Often for these types of issues doctors will not be able to do much but give u pain meds. Best of luck fam.
