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.

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.


I think my prostate hurts? by Reuben Bebberbock - Mon, 15 May 2017 21:35:12 EST ID:IuzjpJ/C No.54954 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I've been trying to cut back on masturbating so that I can have a better erection. I think I might have fucked something up though, because I'm getting a definite pain in my groin, and I'm pretty sure it's my prostate, but I'm not sure. It also feels like it could actually be the shaft at the base where it becomes internal, I might have just worked the angle a little to much. Or maybe I'm staying erect too long? sometimes I go for 30 minutes

I think it's the prostate too because I definitely get a few hours of relief after I cum. Right now it's been about 6 hours since I jerked off and I only feel a dull ache.

What I'm really worried about though is that it's something crazy, like early onset testicle cancer (I'm 30), or something else that would require invasive procedures more intense than a simple check up by my doctor

This is about day 2 of noticeable pain, how long should I wait to see if this goes away before I need to start to worry it's more than just pain from not emptying the prostate as often?

Hey medfags, does anyone here know the molecular explanation behind brain fatigue? I mean like directed attention fatigue/decision fatigue/ any other fatigue where a certain class of brain cell can't do it's job anymore and 'tires out'. I think that shit is really interesting, and I wanna know how it works. I know how muscle cell fatigue works. Like running, for example, creates a bunch of microtears and limit function and which the repair of strengthens tissue. Is there something similar in the brain? If not, then what causes brain areas to 'tire out' and stop working, like when you read the same word a bunch of times and it starts to look like it's spelled wrong.

>And I'm not ignoring the biological stuff, I do believe some people are born more vulnerable to attention and emotional problems, but we also learn and reinforce so many bad things in our behavior and thoughts.
Exactly. We're born with a set of genes, but how those genes get expressed can be changed suprisingly quickly. Look into Richard J. Davidson's work on meditation epigenetics.

Hey OP,

Another engineer here with a fairly large/long drug history (all your psys plus a descent into pure IV hedonism for a few years...)

Anyway, my attention span has always been shit, and the drugs didn't exactly help. But the longer I've stayed away from the psys and the HPPD/general schizo stuff they tend to induce for me, the easier it's gotten for my subconscious/innate abilities to compensate for my extreme lack of focus (like it had done for most of my life).

That said: I second what a previous poster said, about Welbutrin - for about 1/3 people, it seems to be an excellent AD/pseudo-stim and has helped me immensely. Zoloft also helped, to a lesser extent, but I think my problem and benefit from that was much more depression-related than purely a focus issue.

What are you taking the seroquel for? Don't take seroquel if you can, man. It doesn't necessarily ruin my focus so much as just.. make me dull - it turns off the inner monologue that so much of my thought process derives from and makes my mind 'too quiet.'

Maybe that sounds crazy; I'm not sure. But I'd still take a bit crazy and sharp over dull and 'sane' and implore you to do the same.

Just your feet? I had a rash on my hand once, no clue where it came from. Covered the whole back of my hand and then it went away.

Why would you be waiting for blisters?

I would google around for alternative/herblore remedies for [your specific problem]. Most of the time /med/ shoots down such recommendations, but there's some bona fide natural cures sitting in most people's cupboards or at the supermarket, if they just understand how to use them.

Post pictures of your foot, ya doofus. And if you've got insurance, hit your doctor up.

Pour some Stregga on your feet.

You have foot fungus most likely. If that's the case, you're making it worse, lol. So, essentially the answer is to season your feet like spaghetti. Put lots of thyme and sage and such (cloves work too) in that hot water for your foot soak, or better yet, cook it into a bit of oil like when making cannabutter, (could even toss in some weed for your feet) and then use that as a lotion once it cools.

And change your insouls in your shoes immediately and let them completely dry.

So it's Monday morning right now, and I've had a pretty sore throat since Thursday morning. I also threw up that morning, but just that time. My lymph nodes on my neck are swollen, but I'm not showing any other symptoms. Could it be that I do have a cold/flu of some kind but I only have these symptoms? Mono? Something more serious? Fill me in, if you can.

Oh, and yeah, I'm pretty sure I don't have tonsilitis and my tonsils feel ok, but looking at the roof my mouth towards where my throat ends and the roof begins, it looks kinda discolored. The severity of my sore throat isn't too bad, but it's fairly uncomfortable and hard to ignore the pain. It hasn't changed much since Thursday.

this is the trifecta treatment of "i feel kinda sick" which is unparalleled. if this does not work, consider seeking treatment. it's only been 3 days so yes you could have a mild viral infection, so far symptoms sound pretty tame to me. if you smoke maybe take a break for a day or 2

One of my crown fell out.
It was just held in with some sort of dental glue before from the dentist. My question is can I just buy the special glue online or something and re attach it my self or is this something best left to a dentist?

If you want it fixed, go dentist. You might think you've got it lined up perfectly, but if you fuck it up and it need to be corrected in the future there's always the chance a home job could do somethign unforseen. Like what if you accidentally glue some kind of plaque under the crown and end up creating a cavity that they can't readily access without first burning all the glue off?
That's just one possible way it could go wrong

That being said, that's the responsible solution for an ideal world. If you're in desperate financial straights and literally can't go dentist, maybe you can do it yourself and just roll the dice, stick it out as long as you can bear it. But it's your call.

>contrast treatment
indicated for: fluid retention, joint injury (your ankle), bruising

apply hot and cold alternating to the site of the injury, 15 mins hot 15 mins cold, repeating at least 3 times (the more the better, i would personally do like 10 cycles). when you sprain a joint you pull/compress and slightly tear/crush the ligaments and possibly cartilage in the joint. these tissues are avascular and do not have a direct supply of blood or lymph to facilitate the healing process. however, interstitial fluid can be transported to more vascular tissue through this contrast treatment, as heat causes vasodilation and cold causes vasoconstriction, generating a pumping action of the blood and lymph vessels in the area

things for hot: electric heating pad, hot water bottle (my favorite), heating stones in hot water, thermacare heat patches, rice/bean/whatever pouches that you microwave

things for cold: cold pack kept in the freezer, ziploc bag of ice with paper towel around it to catch condensation and minimize the intensity of the cold, or something like a frozen bag of vegetables if you don't have ice

>stretching
stretch muscles of leg: quads, adductors, hams, calf, tib. ant.

>ROM
move the ankle joint cautiously, stopping if there is pain, but on a daily and regular basis until free full movement is achieved

If you've got a massive hog (9" or bigger and thick), go for the female. She'll have to examine your balls eventually, and it would be amusing to watch her try to control her reaction when that monstrous fucker flops out of your skivvies.

Otherwise, go with the male because lol female doctors, especially DOs (look at the rate at which they fail the USMLE as opposed to MDs).

What does it feel like afterwards?

I've had a cough for a couple weeks now about a week ago I coughed so hard I think I fractured a rib.

Anyway I don't have medical insurance so I was wondering if anyone here could help me.
What does a broken rib feel like? And how can I know if it's a fracture or just a pinched nerve or some shit?
Any tests I can do at home?

And yes I know I'm being casual about it, but I dont want that to downplay the intensity of the pain. Anytime I get up from layong down or lay down from standing, cough, sneeze, hiccup, or even lift my arm the wrong way.

Seriously, new found appreciation for people with chronic pain. You're a fucking hero if you live in agonizing pain.

nigga unless you are michael phelps, i dont think your diaphragm is powerful enough to cause an avulsion fracture on a rib, which is the only possible way a cough could cause anything in the ribcage to break. more likely is that you partially dislocated the rib and/or vertebra or "subluxated" it as the chiropractors like to say.

the fact that moving your arm hurts supports my guess, since muscles that move the arm and scapula anchor on the ribs and spine, so if it is out, moving the arm tugs on the misaligned spot. i would recommend just paying out of pocket for a chiropractor. some are as cheap as $20 for your first visit, or around 40-50, depending on price inflation where you live. if you can't do that, self-care would basically be applying heat to the pain spot (to reduce muscular tension), and trying exercises like thoracic foam rolling (here's some bald nigga doin some shit that looks correct: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SxQkVD0UQNg), and getting a therapeutic massage.


if it isn't related to the position of the bones, there is the possibility the force of the cough caused a sprain in a joint, or a strain in an intercostal muscle (i have torn an intercostal muscle before and it hurts like a motherfucker); in such a case you really just have to wait it out, try to get the area to relax, and try to get it all moving freely.


if you want to know if a bone is broken, tap on it. like you would tap on a window. if it shoots WAVES of INTENSE AGONIZING PAIN, there is a fracture. trust me dude you would know if your rib was actually broken. if you bumped it into anything you would drop to a knee and groan from the pain.
