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

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.

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

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.

Acid Reflux Aspiration Pneumonia

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.

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 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.

My back is filled with black acne scars and shit looks like a war zone, is there any kind of cream to get rid of these acne scars?

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.
