Hey there everybody, I don't post on this forum very often like I don't go to the doctors very often either. More of a lurker. But this is kind of serious, I got an ear infection recently, in my left ear, I think it's from the dirty ass phone that I use at work. It felt like swelling in my ear canal, I googled the symptoms and it said "Swimmers Ear" - Alright, fast forward a couple days, I went to a metal show lastnight, that might've done it. But there's fucking blood coming out of my goddamn ear, especially when I was blotting it with a tissue.
What the fuck is this?

Hey Guys. I'm turning here as a last resort, as my doctor tends to be a dick and isn't always the most helpful. I have Acid Reflux. It Refluxes into my mouth and lungs so badly that since February it's given me pneumonia on almost a monthly basis. I am prescribed antibiotics and it goes away - for a couple of weeks, and then the process of aspiring the stomach acid, getting asthma because of it, using ventolin and coughing up phlegm that tastes like what I ate the day before begins. This goes on until the pneumonia starts again. This condition I believe is known as Acid Reflux Aspiration Pnemonitis.

I'm on Rabeprazole (ppi), Zantac (h2), tums, gaviscon, and none of it even touches the issue or helps. I've been on antibiotics monthly since last october, and i'm just looking for anything that could help me or that I could bring up with my doctor, whether it's conventional medicine or natural.

I used to take omeprazole for my acid reflux and it cleared it up. Then I stopped drinking like a fish and I didn't need the omeprazole anymore. I've started drinking again now and my reflux is back, so I either need to quit drinking or get more omeprazole.

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.

So I'm 28 and serving in the military. I've been looking into Pre Med programs at local schools (Nebraska), but I have a really bad academic history. I got my GED in 2007, and my time spent in community college immediately after that I ended with around 40 credits. I have dropped classes, failed classes, I think my overall GPA from there is a 2.7. I was taking transfer credits for a Computer Science major, but when I transferred to NWMSU I withdrew from the first semester and never returned. I feel like Psychology is my calling, but I wanted to be a psychiatrist to be involved in the side of medicinal psychoactives.

I'm scared that I am trying to do this too late. And maybe I don't have the grades. I would need about two years more coursework in a Pre Med program. I've also looked into post bac programs, but my understanding of that is that I need a degree first.

What's your question? You don't need a degree to go to medical school. A large portion of physicians finish their bachelor's (usually in chemistry, biology, or a specialist degreein those fields) to have a safety net should they not make it into a medical school.
The greatest factor for acceptance is MCAT/GRE scores, then your core GPA. They don't careif you got perfect grades in Spanish or Theater; can you tell a spleen from a thymus?

Do you want to be a pharmacologist, psychologist or a psychiatrist, or a computer dude? Sort your shit out BEFORE you start stressing on the pointless shit like being too old or wearing the wrong color underwear to the grocery store.

I want to be a psychiatrist. I would like to do talk therapy as well, but I've been told that psychiatrists are more for the prescribing of medicine than the talk therapy side of things. I was thinking a chemistry major with a psychology minor because I really like psychology. Or is it possible to have a psychology major and take the required science courses alongside it?

You can take whatever you want if you have the prerequisites and the money. I don't know how GI Bill works, but Federal financial aid cuts off for bachelor's degrees after a certain number of credit hours have accumulated, however, so you might run into that problem.

IME, psychiatrists do not do talk therapy. They prescribe meds and do electroshock. I'm sure some do talk therapy, but I think it's more common for a therapist to do that, because therapists are usually cheaper, and talk therapy sessions often last an hour. Very few insurance plans are going to pay a psychiatrist's rates for an hour.

2.7 is a shit GPA. You know that. You're going to need to get straight As from here on out, especially in your science courses, if you want to pursue medical school. Don't bother going back to school unless you can commit to making that happen.

28 is not too late. There is some discrimination against older applicants, but it's not a hard disqualifier.

I dunno. I've heard it can vary.
>What is the worst pain you have ever had?
Shitty opiod turds that literally cause anal fissures or a serious back injury.
>Can you put it on a scale I might understand?
The turds won't come out so you are sitting there with blood coming out of your ass in complete shock and fear. It is nothing short of terrifying. The pain is bad but the fear on top really does you in. The back injury, well, If I had a gun, I would have been close to shooting myself it was so painful. I couldn't walk or move or do anything.
>Like it is so many times worse than an elbow tattoo?
Apparently the shit they did for my back was comparable to getting a tattoo in pain. It felt good compared to where I was at. I ended up puking from the pain before it was all said and done.

when a bone is badly broken, there is excruciating and immediate pain that sears from the break to the brain in continuous pulsating waves which only increase as time goes on and the swelling increases. bones are vascular with arteries and veins running through them, so broken bones actually bleed and depending on the bone you could bleed to death if left unattended. also often with broken bones or torn joints there is a distinct wave of nausea, as your entire body just goes "something really fucking bad has occurred to the body" and sometimes people vomit. it also paralyzes you since any tiny movement causes the broken bone to shift, sending a fresh wave of horrific pain up to the brain, or if the break has jagged edges, sawing into soft tissue like muscles and ligaments. i was an EMT and i've seen many breaks and sprains. i think the most painful is a comminuted fracture of the femur, since it is the largest bone. sometimes crushing injuries are comparatively less painful because the nerves are crushed and you cannot feel the pain beyond the crushing point, so it only feels like 3 daggers of fire instead of 50.

i personally am lucky/a spoiled faggot and have not sustained any really bad injuries. i once sprained my spine failing a back handspring, that was pretty bad. hurt to stand up straight for a couple weeks, but it was nothing compared to some people's terrible injuries.

I broke my right femur.

Initial pain I thought I'd just tore a muscle, wasn't till I was xrayd at the hospital they found a clead break just above the knee.

The pain I'd liken to getting your finger slammed in a door but the pain doesn't go away for like 2 months and every time you move it gets fresh.

Worse all the muscles around it get sore because of non use, my back is still tight a yea and a bit later.

Worse then the pain is laying in a bed pissing in a jar for a month till you can use a walking frame to kinda hop around. And the low mood/kinda depressive like symptoms you get from being in a room bedlocked for months with minimal interaction save your mom/carer/wife/kids/few mares that visit. Your whole life is over for a fee months.

All in all, wouldnotsuggest/10

And all the rehab work to get you leg back to functioning kinda the same as your other one.

Breaking a bone badly was the worst pain I had ever felt. I'd say it was about an 8 on scale from 1 to 10 where 1 is least painful and 10 is most painful. I very nearly passed out from it.

I have no idea how painful an elbow tattoo is, but I imagine that the range of sensations that go into breaking a bone will be larger, since there is actual heavy damage done to the bone and surrounding tissues. The overall sensation is probably worse from breaking a bone, even if the pain itself might be very bad from an elbow tattoo (I assume so from the way you pose the question itself).

When you fuck up shooting bad enough and don't properly care for an abscess and it wells up painfully when is it ok to attempt to drain it or to go get it drained if you're less junkie;ife and actually can afford to go to the doctor. Like do you need to wait till it comes to a head or can you just cut in early on when it begins getting red and hard?

Is there really nothing I can do but drain at this point, or is there some remedy like hot and cold compress that can save me from having to mutilate my arm because I really like them vein drugs and I am not taking care of myself well enough.

Hello /med/

This year I subjected myself to a diet of 600 calories a day for three months and lost 42 pounds. This was obviously a stupid thing to do and now I'm suffering with the consequences.

I feel absolutely awful all over. My legs feel like lead weights. I'm constantly tired. I can't focus or concentrate on anything. I've developed insomnia and wake up every day at 4am no matter how tired I am and can't get back to sleep. I've completely lost my sex drive and can't even get an erection anymore. I feel depressed and suicidal.

I've been to my doctor and had full blood tests which show nothing is wrong with my blood count, iron levels, b12, electrolytes, etc. According to the blood tests I'm healthier than the last time I had a blood test in 2014. And yet I now feel absolutely awful.

Can anyone here explain what I've done to myself and how to fix it? I'm eating normally again at 2,000 calories a day of fruit, carbs, and meat. I take a multivitamin pill and drink plenty of water. I try to exercise moderately. I weigh 140 pounds with a height of 5 foot 7 inches.

Thanks for your time.

You'll rebound soon enough. It took me about 3-4 weeks. I'm like 5 8 and went from 194 to 150. Caffeine helps a lot but dark sodas pack the weight right back on. My knees and shit felt probably the worst. I also only slept like 2-3 hours. But I started to get more hyper and agile after about a month or maybe a little less. I lost the weight in about 2-3 months time.

You'll feel a lot better once you return to normal. I don't know the science behind it but I felt like ass after completing the diet and not really during. Once I started to maintain weight, I felt like shit with no appetite and just wanted to keep losing weight. Then I acclimated and all was well. Until I went back up to like 185 and did it all again lol. I honestly feel a lot more shitty at 170+ than I do at 140-150. I feel a lot more intense and quick physically and mentally at the lower weights. The fatter I am, the more sloth and depressed I get.

Don't worry, you'll be glad for it in a couple more weeks probably.

Welcome to the club. It's just something you learn to live with even though it doesn't physically ever heal, and yes this sounds like those kind of advices that is hard to believe now, but it will happen to you too. It's also normal that bone sounds, blood flow and such are audible and you take more note of those now when you are having a phase in life when you are really aware and sensitive about everything you're hearing. In my experience tinnitus does get slightly less audible by time. First healing happens during first few months, and then it might get gradually less audible after a year or two. But it never really goes totally away. When I was 19 I got the kind of tinnitus that is easily masked by fans. When I was 33 I got it again and the type of that is present over most sounds and won't mask. I was devasted, again, but I learned to live with it and now after a year I don't even notice it anymore even though I can hear it when I let myself hear it. Got so used to it, which feels like a miracle. Also it helped me greatly to have a hearing test and that I actually have a perfect score for my age even though I constantly hear tinnitus. It's like I have a problem, but it's not a too big problem. It also helps to think that at least it's not even more worse, because some people have it as loud as an alarm siren. I am still able to enjoy all sounds of the world because it's not that bad and even enjoy improving sound quality of a hifi system. It also helps to think that it's just one type of minor disability and people inevitably collect those as they age. Some have so bad knees they can't even run. Some lose a limb totally. Some lose an eye. Slight hearing problem is an annoyance and it's difficult to focus and sleep at first but eventually it becomes so part of life you won't have any problem sleeping and focusing at complicated tasks.Life is far from over and still many things to enjoy.

In any case, you should go to a good ear doctor and have both your hearing tested and analyzed as well as inner ear checked up by visual examination and a few other tests. It's always possible there is something that can be physically repaired. In my case I have …

Ok, so I've gone through acne scars in the past, on my face.

I got glycolic acid and lemon peels that removed a lot of my skin, but healed up very nicely. It hurts and you will look bad for a few weeks, but it does wonders. I got rid of stuff that was even under my skin and super gross.

That being said, be very careful! Never get acid that's too strong, never do too much. Get a second opinion from someone else too, It may not be for you.
