Any Cardiologist / Physician / Tech etc want to try interpreting my EKG by Hugh Crinderbanks - Wed, 11 Oct 2017 12:21:31 EST ID:c41JOxRU No.55132 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Just had an EKG done.. I'm on Vyvanse 60 mg QD, Klonopin 1.375 mg QD (recently down from 1.5 QD) , Gabapentin 1800 mg QD, Suboxone 18 mg QD
Age 28
Obesity and smoker.. sedentary. 255 lbs at 6 feet tall
My cardiologist hadn't seen me for 6 years so he just wrote "NSR - Nonspecicif ST-T (something)" then signed it. ST-T nonspecific abnormalities can be bad, or benign. I think the NSR is normal sinus rhythm though. I have other photos of it ive taken too if this ones too crappy.

Looks like you may have an enlarged left ventricle but I can't see very well plus ischemic heart disease. Signs that your heart is working hard. Would be good to be able to compare it with an earlier ECG. Can't really measure anything though, looking at it on my mobile phone.

Obviously talk to your cardiologist if you have any questions bc I'm a 2nd year med student. But I'd consider lifestyle changes if your cardiologist doesn't think you need any pharmacological treatment.

I would have taken a look at your b&e, glucose, lipids and blood pressure as well.

You're very young. Get exercise/walk, lose weight, eat better and quit smoking.

Not OP, but when doctors say this, what do they refer to?

"You're very young so you should really be in better shape"?
"You're very young so you can still manage to get your health in order"?
"You're very young so <insert whatever>"?

I've gotten this from doctors and for some reason I forgot to ask for a clarification, but what does this mean? I realize you can't speak for them, but what did you mean by it?

Seems like I'm chronically dehydrated. Piss is dark orange, my eyes and mouth are dry as shit, and I feel tired and sick to the point that I skip meals. I'm trying to drink water as much as I can, but it's not enough to keep me hydrated when whiskey and speed is involved.

So I'm simply asking, what are some good ways to keep hydrated and enhance the water's hydration effect?

Having severe pain that I suspect to be Kidney pain (never experienced it, so don't know for sure). It's just below my middle back, on my left side, just about where my ribcage ends. It's been worsening for the past week. No other apparent symptoms, other then frequent urination. Would I be wasting anyones time going to the ER? Pain is 6-8/10.

You generally shouldn't be feeling constant pain anywhere between your haircut and the bottoms of your feet. So yes, go see a fucking doctor. If you have an infection you've just let it grow and spread for a week, which may make it much harder to fight off.

Hey man, this might be a long shot but the same happened to me when I was younger. I was racking up quite the er bills going back and forth and they never saw anything(they were prob convinced i was a drug seeker because long hair jeans etc) I still have all of the ct/mri/xray discs somewhere and i've thought of digging them up and looking again for myself. At any rate though I ended up doing a lot of research and gave up pop and milk, started drinking distilled water and homemade lemonade they said it would break up stones and dairy causes stones and inflammation in the kidneys/bladder. It was a night and day change within a couple days. I got lax and a year later it returned. Fed up at this point because the gallbladder attack was an unimaginable pain I took the advice of a doctor I had found online to cut out the dairy and crap again cold turkey and again, it went away. This caused me later to become obsessed with research long story short i went entirely vegan and my health has been perfect since. I understand it would be hard for a lot of people to think about but it saved me a lot of hell. I was tired of racking up the er bills and my life has benefited in every way

people too often conflate traditional chinese medicine of the intellectual class of historical china (five element theory, yin/yang concept, chi, meridians, acupuncture, etc.) with rural folk medicine (tiger blood gives u a bigger dick, eating the wrong vegetables summons ghosts, drinking piss cures cancer) and thus dismiss it all. this also goes for reflexology (which comes from europe), crystal dipshittery, aura faggotry, and "chakra healers" who laypeople assume are all the same as an acupuncturist.

traditional chinese medicine is legit, and it works, if you can sift away all the stupid shit the modern consumerist world heaps alongside it. i personally had a grade II sprain in my lumbar spine (confirmed by MRI) completely cured through a handful of acupuncture sessions with an old expert. also been to a popular acupuncturist in taiwan, he cured my chronic foot pain in 1 session. anecdotal sure, but the studies are out there. the us army wouldnt be paying for it to treat ptsd if there wasnt scientific evidence of its efficacy.

you may say the model of the 5 elements and the meridians is foolish, but the same can be said about the old "nuclear model" of the atom, which we have now replaced with the "probability cloud" model. although the model may not be 100% accurate in its immediate representation of the thing it models, the systems of logic and rationale applied through it can still be used to solve complex and advanced problems that perhaps a western approach would not.

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.

I don't mean to sound like a hippy dippy faggot, but I believe we are born in this life for our greater consciousness/soul/spirit/whatever to have a chance at possibly learning wisdom. reincarnating into different lives to learn different truths. i have a friend whose mother was mentally ill and unable to speak or really communicate, just staring at the floor all the time. after her mom died she spoke with a psychic who confirmed numerous private details between her and her mom, and the mom basically said she was learning nothing in her life so it was time for her to move on, so not to grieve for her passing. i know thats just a random story but, if your child's entire life would be without mental/social/spiritual/primal/intellectual activity, just eating and shitting, what is the purpose? where is the potential for self-actualization? humans can shoot a horse's brains out for a broken leg without a second thought, but terminating a malformed child is suddenly unthinkable. im not trying to persuade you, as this is an extremely heavy decision no one else can make or honestly understand, but from where i am looking it seems like such a life would be a waste of time, emotion, and resources for all involved, especially the child.

Really this is down to what you consider to be a person.

Will it be a person? Is it a person now if you abort it quickly?

Abortion will fuck you up, be prepared for that. It's not an easy thing. But then keeping it clearly won't be. And we aren't exactly short on human beings right now. I think people should have fewer children and make them count.

Why will your child be a vegetable? If this is a certainty and it's not a very developed embryo I'd say abort it but I'm not the one carrying it or dealing with the consequences.

If you keep it, and it does (for whatever reason the doctor had) suffer from defects, you will need support. Is this feasible? Consider also that genetics are not everything and that a life can be meaningful despite impairments. We live in a highly logical world as humans but we are lost to its meaning all the same.

If you don't keep it, you will need to internalize and carry on in life with this experience and whatever it brings. You should consider carefully what ethos you really follow; are you a christian/religious, or just heavily influenced by your culture? You don't deserve to suffer for a choice you have been made to believe is evil. We must respect our innate morality but remember that the universe is indifferent.

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.

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

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


What colour do bruises go by Phyllis Gemmerworth - Sat, 23 Sep 2017 12:25:57 EST ID:3giE7+cL No.55105 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

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
