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.

Are you ok, OP?

Advice for anyone: if your pain goes to 6 for more than a short time, go to hospital.

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

Get medicaid folks if you don't make enough money and have no insurance. It makes things a lot easier and even if it's .gov based insurance. You will get far better care. If you wait until something goes wrong to seek treatment without health insurance, it's like you have no health foundation to really stand on. Only takes like a week to kick in. And these is emergency state aid for emergencies
where people do not have insurance for temporary financial assistance.
Should be filed within like two weeks of being billed?

My weeks worth of shots, 9 shots, $600 $800 or so dollars, 1 dollar at the pharmacy, and it was the hospital people who screwed up to begin with.

Dehydration

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?

u also gotta consider it requires water to metabolize those substances and the coloration of urine could just be due to waste metabolites being excreted. increase h2o and decrease the fuckin speed

Speed definately will make your pis dark, brown whatever dark color. It is what it does. You can actually drink like a glass of water every hour. Maybe stagger another glass in between here and there. i had had it clear up. Eat ice cold cereal with fruit, oranges, cantelope, grapes, banana, extra milk and an extra glass of water.

You have to simply eat, even just as a formality, as in just take 5 10 minutes.
Make smoothies with yogurt, and blended fruit. Strawberies and banana are good. Always have juice every 4 hours if you happen to binge for days at a time.
You pee can clear up, take a multivitamin, and a B-12 complex vitamin at least
twice every 12 hours. Your pee will eventually be a mellow yellow look.

Initially always though you pee will be dark for a moreso day two, but would clear up. One note, if this is like street speed, some speds are taxing on the liver pretty harsh, but studies show some speeds taken with acetaminophen and alcohol is like 4 times as toxic on the liver. So tread lightly if you back hurts or whatever, take ibuprophen instead. Limit the drinks
enough to just feel kinda nice. It is known you can drink a lot of booze on alcohol and that will
be like an ongoing feel like crap hangover, even while still drinking. A watery type drink every hour, beam and sprite with lots of ice and splash some water in it is better than straight shots.

But in all if you keep somewhat of a eating hydration program going you will feel much better. As well people who do speed may neglect their brushing teeth, taking a bath shower. These are important as bleeding gums will make you feel crappy, showers will absorb water into your system as well.

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.

it means doing bad shit to your body has an increasingly bad effect as you age. its the doctors' light-hearted way of saying "you can do this now without being fucked but later you can't so stop now before you're fucked."

Associate gave me the you dumbass for saying I would quit smoking before I stopped drinking, which was basically minimal (binging here and there,) anyway. Well stopping smoking worked fine and not drinking followed in short time after. That was the plan
and stuck by it

I think most doctors would say, and they do say that stopping smoking now is the best thing you can do for your immediate health. It is pretty rough on your heart, and everything else to boot. I know because smoking off and on, that first cig defiantly changes ones thought process, assuming blood pressure, heart rate, and whatever else.

Some may differ on my opinion but I would stop smoking above all else to begin with.
I assume Vyvanse is an amphetamine. Not so good. The subs, and the benzos, I
would see no real issue for now. Do though, get a bit of exercise every day. You should
find , even if it takes a month that things do become easier to get by in subsequent days
at a certain point. I drank heavily fi x amount of years, like non stop drinking. People were
kinda amazed I made it this far, a few seizures. One serious which if somebody, dear mother wasn't nearby by, I likely would ot be living, as I coughed up enough white foamy stuff to actually choke. Doctors were concerned if I would live or die. So it was intensive care for at least a week. But as of now not drinking for about a month, I do that binge then quit for a while, but each day becomes easier to cope, sure have bit so great days but
in reality, I am not stuck with smoking a gig every half hour hour, withdrawing from drinking is basic hell feeling. Benzos help. But your subs and benzos, maybe it's time to put s much effort into ending these drugs and out as much effort into reinventing yourself as you do
smoking, etc. I personally lost way too many years getting nowhere drinking and smoking,
mindset in the wrong place where getting drugs and all was just set in and not much more. A straight 15 + years basically gone, when I don't drink, I do see an actual tomorrow every time I go to bed.

The titles are very clickbaity and they really push for 15+ minutes in each video which is mostly them talking. Pretty sure it's their main source of income so I guess it's just the hustle to make videos in that format.
But honestly for videos about life in China they are both doing pretty good work.

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.

Warm Sensation in Butt/Thigh?

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

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

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.)
He also won't increase my clonidine dose to the amount I've actually been needing, meaning that for months I've often had to pay out of pocket for refills medicaid won't cover yet, because I can't just stop taking my heart pills after 4 years and be fine. He also won't prescribe anything similar to clonidine that lowers BP but not pulse (to help wean me off because I can only tolerate so much beta blocker) even though I'd be surprised if such a thing doesn't exist.
As for depression: this has been ongoing to at least a minor degree since 2010. There were good times, maybe up to about 8 months at once it seemed like it was mostly gone but I was probably ignoring it with the help of pills. At the worst it drained all my motivation, appetite, energy, and hope. Right now is not quite the worst but I'm still crying a lot every day and thinking about suicide half the time I'm not distracting myself. I've mentioned countless times to my current dr. that I need some antidepressant I haven't tried yet but got nothing from him. The best I got is a refill of wellbutrin that a hospital psych prescribed but that's yet another pill that's not for me.
Similar deal with the anxiety: the best I get is hydroxyzine which isn't quite enough, and probably only because I showed him I had a script before.
I'm not sure but I think for a couple different reasons I've been labeled as a drug seeker or something around here because drs. seem extraordinarily unwilling to help when it comes to any scheduled drug.
Sorry but I'm losing my train of thought because I'm just so fucking tired there's no word for it. Anyway this next one I'm not sure is relevant but I've had tingling in my hands and sometimes arms that has been constant as far as I can tell for at least 6 months, and at the very worst slightly painful. My dr. told me it's not a vitamin deficiency but that's all I know. I think he'll send me to neurologist at least next visit. I had (I think) the lowest dose of baclofen for a month after last detoxing (Feb. or early March) and I remember that helping slightly, but not enough and it's worse now.
I've mentioned that it helped and also seemed to help my anxiety a bit but he said something about that not being a labelled use and basically ignored my complaints every time I brought it up.

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.

Anyway I need to lay down for a bit. Can barely see through the tears. Sorry to burden you all with this but this is just about the worst i've ever felt.
I skipped a ton of details and probably forgot a ton because my brain is jello i'm so tired but I can answer any questions later.
I'm just completely overwhelmed now and can't see any way out of this hole on my own.

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

Not sure whether to go to ER, not sure if it's "legitimate" enough

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.

Would this be guaranteed to off you?

Let's say you roll up some joints, get in a really hot bath, drop 2 grams MDMA, shoot up with levemir and then novorapid and then start to chain smoke the joints while making sure the bath stays hot.. How much of the insulin would you need, and if you have enough, would it definitely kill you?
Sorry about the ignorance.

i had to look up the meds, but i see what you are doing here
>joints: vasodilation
>hot bath: vasodilation
>mdma: increased glucose uptake (vasoconstriction and increased body temp cancel each other out in my reckoning)
>levemir: artificial insulin (drops blood glucose levels)
>novorapid: more insulin (drops blood glucose levels)

yeah this is a combo of low blood pressure and critically low blood glucose levels, which will kill brain cells pretty quick. to be sure of death? idk... maybe 4-5x the recommended dose for levemir and novorapid (it is calculated based on patient weight), that with the other combos would put you in fatal zone for most people. seems like a pretty shit way to go though, you would probably have a massive headache and basically have a /del/-like sense of misery and doom as you slowly fry your brain. might as well do exit bag or something

Slitting the wrists could probably help the headache by advancing loss of consciousness.
Thank you for your reply! Yes that was pretty much the though

lol if you slit your wrists (and actually lacerate an artery [bonus points for cutting down the length of the artery, thus making a tear in its muscular wall, rendering it considerably more difficult to clot and heal]) and keep them submerged, you will not clot, and it won't be too painful except for the cutting. no need for all the crazy insulin shit if you're going that route. why not throw in a toaster too lol

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?
