my first thought was an allergic response, but i can't help but notice the ring-shape of the second image, which leads me to think of a fungal infection. is your hygiene good? daily shower with soap? clean clothes and bedding? fresh socks and underwear each day?

heres the thing though, fungi aren't bacteria. if it is indeed fungal in origin you will need antifungal medication from the drug store. there are many over the counter brands. if you are still having this problem i would suggest going this route.

also side-note, go easy on the peroxide. that shit is like a microbiological nuke. kills all the millions of good healthy bacteria too.

ECG for heart after starting medication by Graham Drivingridge - Sun, 25 Jun 2017 18:30:41 EST ID:fuQqailM No.55028 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

So I'm a drug addict, that's why I'm on this chan. I've convinced my psych that I have ADD and I've been prescribed Ritalin. I did this simply to get my hands on Ritalin so I could get a prescription and I could save up the pills and binge on them on weekends.

Now because my father died of a heart attack and Ritalin acts on your heart, my psych wants me to get an ECG (where they check your heart and see if the medication has affected it negatively). I've done two ECGs before, one before starting the medication and one after. But now they've upped the dosage they want me to go back and do another ECG. But since the last one I've been binging on the Ritalin in the weekends and sometimes during the week as well, on lower dosages though.

What I'm basically asking is whether this would show up on the scan. Should I stop taking Ritalin a couple days before the scan? Or would the doctors notice that I haven't taken any. I basically want to fool the ECG into showing that the Ritalin hasn't been doing damage to my heart, so I can keep getting the pills prescribed. This will sound stupid but I personally don't care whether or not it's been damaging to my heart, I just want to keep getting the pills so I can have fun on the weekends.

Long story short, I have to get a heart scan to see if my usage of Ritalin has affected my heart negatively. Is there a way to fool the scan and make it seem like I'm okay on the medication even if I might not be? Could benzos help?

I've been taken an aspirin daily for sometiime now and never had any problems. And lately I've been popping Benzos quite heavily to the point where I have minor balance problems and developed hiccups yesterday. So last night I decided to grab four tall boys and a black and mild downed that and chifed the shitty cigarillo. Then I decided to pop a few more benzos and a couple propranalols.

I started feeling pretty good for about half an hour until I started hiccuping uncontrollably. I had to get up and vomit. It was this mixture of beer,blood, a couple of undisolved pills and food. I woke up this morning feeling fine despite vomiting blood three times.

What the hell happened?


Multiple instances of sleep paralysis in a single day by Walter Crennerket - Tue, 20 Jun 2017 03:16:25 EST ID:I4ryogAb No.55024 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I've had bouts of sleep paralysis since I was a little kid (in my late 20's now), I can usually get myself out pretty fast by using the "Kill Bill" method of just concentrating on moving a toe or a finger then working my way up the limb. I've never had hallucinations when I get the paralysis and it's usually not even an issue unless I'm sleeping on my stomach and freak out about smothering in my pillow.

A couple of days ago I had it happen and got myself out of it pretty quick then rolled over and fell asleep, it happened again almost immediately after I fell back to sleep. I wasn't expecting it to happen again so I panicked and somehow did a sit-up/crunch so that my upper torso was off the bed, I was fully conscious but unable to move until I calmed down and relaxed my abs. I went through this paralysis 'cycle' three more times before I just said, "fuck it" and got up.

I'm not exhausted normally and usually only snore if my allergies are acting up. My dad was having punching and kicking episodes in his sleep a while back and said his doctors were saying Parkinson's. I'm not having any issues like that but I've got shit luck as far as health is concerned.

Is this something I should bring up with my doc? I mean of course its noteworthy but are there other things that I would/should notice if its something serious?

Thanks

I've got a "Spermatocele" in my nutsac, basically a cyst. It's painful. How do I get rid of it without surgery? My doctor said he wont remove it until it gets to "the size of a grapefruit" which could be years away. I don't want to wait that long or to have it grow that big.

Would regular gentle squeezing make the fluid move out of the cyst?

Good day, dear /med/.

Right at the beginning I would like to apologize if this is the wrong board for my thread. I beg your pardon in advance.

At the end of last year, a thread was created to inform you that the diet and our lifestyle play a very important role when it comes to growth, genes and health. It was specifically about people like Weston A. Price, Dr. Axe, Dr. Mike Mew, Sally Fallon and Ramiel Nagel. In addition to the dangers of breathing through the mouth (especially during childhood and adolescence), amalgam fillings, fluoridation, jaw operations (overbite correction, rapid maxillary expansion appliance), sexual abstinence (semen retention), fasting, breathing techniques by the person called "Wim Hof" and much more.
Link: https://archive.fo/0q5yF

It was important to reach as many people as possible and to inform them, because I myself committed serious mistakes in my childhood and youth, which in the adult age can only be corrected with several surgical procedures. By this I mean specially crooked teeth & nose, overbite, narrow jaw, long, asymmetrical face, etc.

I am not 100% sure, but I hope that this information from 2016 could help a few people in their lives. If not, then hopefully your future children. My goal with this message is not to push old threads, but to share new knowledge so you do not make the same mistakes as I do and avoid bad experiences.

A few months ago, I have happily encountered an honorary man with the Internet pseudonym "viriculture", who has created a thread on a forum how to become physically beautiful. He has made all his knowledge available to everyone free of charge. I would like to share these and other websites, so that you can form your own opinion about it. Maybe there is information that is interesting, helpful and informative for you. This section is from the gentleman named "viriculture":

I love you all and want to give you something special - the knowledge to how to be physically beautiful. This is not a metaphor, but rather literally true.

I can well understand that people consider orthomolecular medicine to be absolute nonsense. It is in no way natural to consume vitamins, minerals and trace elements in the form of tablets or powders. In addition, food supplements have in many cases no positive effect on our health. Especially in the field of sport (for example, bodybuilding), a lot of money is made with products that are nothing more than a placebo. Real foods should therefore always be in the first place. Supplements only as an additional aid.

Some information about hair loss:

Even if people are convinced that hair loss is genetic, I do not think that this is 100% true. There are undoubted cases that are genetic, but in my opinion, this is only a very small percentage of humanity. Most people nowadays underestimate food and physical exercise. These two factors play a very
important role, even if others have a completely different opinion.

Food rich in zinc, B vitamins, C, D3 + K2, B3, B12, A, fiber, omega 3 and 6 fatty acids and clean protein can stop / prevent hair loss. This also applies to other internal as well as external diseases. Healthy fats should not be forgotten.

Avoid sugar-containing food, refined carbohydrates, soy, wheat, conventional meats + fish, trans fats and pasteurized dairy products as much as possible.

In my youth, as many others, I watched daily pornographic material on the Internet. Today I would say I was addicted at this time. It was much easier to watch such movies and satisfy my sexual desire for a short time, instead of speaking to women outside the computer screen and making real experiences. After a while I noticed that my hair became thinner and fall out after one or more ejaculations. So I started the search engine and looking for terms like semen/sperm + hair loss and quickly found hundreds or thousands of articles reported that many nutrients lost after ejaculation (including zinc).

I also became aware of the so-called "NoFap" + "NoPorn" and tried it out immediately. But I have to admit that it was not easy and I needed several attempts. During this time, I switched my diet and started to exercise regularly. Whether sexual abstinence / semen retention (+no pornography) works or not, everyone should decide for themselves. There are people who notice an improvement of their life, and others nothing at all.

There was in my life a certain time, in which I lost many hairs, but was never bald or had bald spots. Since I live healthy, I have no more problems. My recommendation is to eat as naturally as possible. No processed + packaged food with different and unknown ingredients. If you have any questions, please ask.

Seen ticks in my time but as said, cat may freak to begin with. Some valium may help for the anxiety. For people a hot match head may work, but these guys would be fairly burrowed in. A tick head, antibiotics should be a must. Regardless.

Generally a match or hot item I believe is good for newly found ticks, these look pretty established. I don't think they would really simply back out as wanted. a wanted outcome. Vets say use tweezers, which they would use, never heard of a vet doing otherwise. Just a few thoughts.

Yea, just be careful. Cat will freak, valium, whateve benzo, .25 mgs should be about right and safe enough. just a tiny bit will help. I cat is not allergic to it which is unlikely as it is in people. Get these off and And wake up much happier.

Had areas in the mountain brushy kinda areas, where if you didn't get at least one tick spring summer earlier fall, you didn't go in there.

Things are worthless parasites. Flies serve a purpose in the scheme of things, they are pests but do, mosquitoes do not, etc.

The hippy dippy way of doing things is to coat them densely in vaseline and it will choke the tick to death in about an hour and they fall off. You could just rip them out with tweezers but depending on your cat, it may not like that. The match thing doesn't work from my experience. At least not very reliably. Not sure if you can use vaseline given the cat would lick it off.

I'd just say hold it down and rip them out. That is what I do with my dogs but dogs respect me. Most cats are terribly owned and mannered.

I am more than halfway through my pregnancy and I am still smoking weed (only weed).
I tried to stop for a bit during my first couple of months, but I was absolutely miserable. I felt sick all the time, throwing up pretty much everything I ate or drank. I ended up dehydrated and had to go in for fluids. I went back to smoking weed every day and I've been eating, drinking, and feeling much better.
I literally can't go a day without smoking otherwise I'll endlessly puke up spit and stomach acid.
This is because I’m experience more severe morning sickness that isn’t going away as the pregnancy progresses. The baby takes so much out of you as its growing inside. Which causes loss of nutrients in the mother. If you’re lacking in nutrients, you get sick.
I know many people would just tell me I’m having “withdrawls” from not smoking weed.

I'd like to take some breaks from smoking here and there because my tolerance is going way up, and I cough a lot.
I've tried literally everything the doctor told me to help with the nausea caused by morning sickness and nothing worked.

I need advice as to how to feel better.
Only a couple more months until I can meet my little girl.

The mass burst on monday. I had a lidocaine patch on it and when I took it off it just sprayed the nastiest smelling liquid ever. I went to the ER,it was still pouring out nasty shit. They sent me to a bigger hospital and I've been there on IV antibiotics since then. They took me to surgery to clean it and pack it. It took 4 big rolls of gauze to pack it and when they unpacked it the next day 2 shots of dilaudid didn't even touch the pain. It turns out that it was a big ol' abscess caused by a uti that kept going up. So there. No cancer but this damn thing has to be packed twice a day. At least it is only taking most of a roll a gauze now instead of 4.

I've had allergic skin reactions for a couple of months now after I came back from Belgium and started work as a laboratory ceramics technician (dentistry). I thought I was allergic to some of the materials we use but using masks and gloves didn't help.

I've done some blood tests and my IgE is through the roof while eosinophils were normal so were monocytes i.e. it's pure allergy and not a parasitic infection (in which case IgE would also be high -- but so would eosinophils).

Anywho, I found out that it's my fucking beard or SOMETHING to do with it. I rubbed by beard on the area of my hand where I get the allergic reaction (red inflammation, itching) and well, it exhibited an allergic reaction. So there's something in my beard that's the same thing that's triggering the allergic reaction. Or the beard itself. Any ideas as to how I can get closer to an answer? Any theories? My "beard" is basically the kind of facial hair you'd get after not shaving for a week; it ain't much.

You can't be allergic to your own hair, so either wash your hair more or check your shampoo or soap for what might be causing the allergic reaction.

I'm on Venlafaxine.

I don't have a girlfriend so that's not the issue.

I can get hard, but I can't cum when I'm taking my antidepressant. The only thing I've found to be effective is not taking the medication, but that also produces rebound and discontinuation symptoms. Reducing doesn't help, as I've gone from 300 mg a do to 150 mg a day with no real change in symptoms.

Is there any supplement I can take to manage this without going off my meds and won't produce negative interactions? It is incredibly frustrating. It would be so bad if the drug killed my sex drive too, but I still have a sex drive with the inability to orgasm.

Tell your doctor that you have sexual dysfunction and ask for a prescription for ritalin. Often, low dose ritalin will be used for men and women who have sexual dysfunction as a result of venlafaxine. It is considered a serious side effect and so doctors will treat it very seriously if you bring it up.

I'm kind of wary of asking for scheduled substances for treatment for anything. They give me lorarzepam for anxiety which I have to be careful with because if I don't I get rebound panic attacks and I'm considering asking to be switched back to clonazepam because it didn't cause a rebound effect even though it caused sleep walking.

They know I have a history of problems with alcohol (DUI is the only thing on my record) and they know I used to use hallucinogens. Never smoked weed, but used to used DXM, DPH, salvia, morning glory, and hawaiian baby wood rose. I don't do hallucinogens anymore because they could interact with my medications and cause serotonin syndrome. I still occasionally drink though.

My psychiatrists test my urine. They want me to do it every time I come in, but I told them the best I could do was every other visit or once every two months. They said they do that for everyone, but I'm not being charged a forty dollar "We don't trust you" fee every month on top of the thirty dollar copay for appointments. I don't trust my doctors. I know they intentionally don't give me refills on my prescriptions to force me to schedule appointments to get new prescriptions so I'll spend extra money.

The therapist I talk to (not the prescribing doctor) is basically useless as her typical response when I ask her for advice is to reflect the question and ask "How does that make you feel?" rather than give anything useful. I don't feel I can even discuss with her openly and frankly the fact that the only time I've ever felt anything that could be call a religious experience was on psychadelics and I feel my father mocks me when he talks about kind of thing in his own religion. Debating whether or not I should tell her about my suicide plan I have prepared and ready to go. "A prison becomes a home if you have the key."

I haven't been feeling great the past few days, doubled my topiramate recently under doctor's orders. My mood's low and I don't want to eat. I sometimes feel they don't know what they're doing because it feels like nothing works, not really. The drugs can help the symptom…

Professionally I wouldn't ever tell someone to stop their medication. However I will be frank: SSRI's and SNRI's are a miracle drug. But only to the companies who produce them. They're unabusable so they know doctors will prescribe them like candy whenever someone comes in saying they're sad. They are also used to help "quit" smoking, "treating" ADHD, and even used for vaginal dysphoria. It is so easy to prescribe these as a doctor because patients will notice some changes but as a doctor you can always say "it just needs more time" when in reality its completely destroying how your body uses serotonin. But we are pressured to prescribe medication. A colleague of mine was fired simply for not doing so. Most are so worried about drug abuse they don't give patients what could potentially change their lives. I have a painting in my office that I cherish from a patient who I got by taking a former colleagues work load and she was on high dosages of Effexor, Lamictal, and Buspar. I first saw her and it was almost as there was a gloss over her eyes, she couldn't sit still, and she could barely focus. In her file it stated "bipolar 2. Drug seeking" she clearly needed a benzodiazepine. I started a taper off Effexor. Prescribed Gabapentin for mood and to help her withdrawals. And a 7 day supply of lorazepam. We got her started on therapy and within 2 months she was off effexor, on lamictal, gabapentin and diazepam. Her change was night and day. So was her painting(it is of a moon and a sun holding hands) very talented. Very well done. So my message is if your psychiatrist doesn't listen to you and your sessions are 15 minutes or less with him writing you prescriptions and that's all.. Look elsewhere

Problem is I can't look elsewhere. I'm stuck with the cheap option because it's what I can afford.

Honestly I'm kind of tolerating this crap in hopes my SSI will go through in the hearing stage. Been involuntarily committed twice so I think I have a good chance and I've got a lawyer, but I'm probably going to commit suicide if it doesn't work because the other option is several decades of mindless blue collar mind numbing drudgery that will make me want to kill myself. Sometimes I genuinely think this is some form of hell and I'm being punished for something I can't remember doing.

And by the way, I fully plan to taper off my meds completely eventually. A symptom I hate is they make me feel depersonalized. I don't feel like myself. When I go off my meds I don't feel like myself because I realize I'm just going through withdrawals. I fear that I'm forgetting what it's like to be at baseline without the medication.
