Ah, thank you for seeing me at such short notice, Doctor 420.

*sits down*

Well, I'll get right to it. For the past 6 months or so I've had a rash or discolored skin around the base of my penis, both groins, and the entire "mons pubis" area. The border between the normal skin and the discolored skin is quite sharp. It doesn't hurt but sometimes it feels very itchy. Let me just show it to y- oh.... this is a worksafe board you say? I'm sorry

*puts pants back on*

Anyway, I've been to two different doctors about it and they both prescribed antifungal cream. First I had clotrimazole %1 cream, then I was prescribed daktarin/miconazole 2% cream. Neither cream has helped get rid of the problem. I'm guessing it's some kind of "jock itch" but none of the antifungal cream has helped. What would you suggest I try next?

Thanks for your help

Keep those area dry(baby-powder and dry completely after shower). You can also try using tea-tree oil in those areas.

this is a bad suggestion
if your skin is excoriated you do not want to add irritants
see a dermatologist
might not be tinea cruris if antifungals do not work

it's hard to say. the distinct border leads me to guess a fungal infection, or systemic response like psoriasis. i agree with previous poster, you will only get clear answers from a dermatologist

I have carpal tunnel and my neurologist gave me a steroid shot in each wrist today. Within an hour my right index finger and thumb had went numb and then my index finger ached and felt like it needed to be popped. A few hours later my left thumb started aching and hasn't stopped. I can barely use it. What the hell? I thought this shit was supposed to help?

im tired of posting this. you don't have carpal tunnel, you have two, one in each wrist. the tunnel through your carpal bones. you wrongly think you have carpal tunnel syndrome, when you are almost definitely suffering from lateral epicondylitis. pressure, heat and stretching into the forearm extensor muscles (especially near the lateral epicondyle) will resolve the issue. they are probably impinging the radial and median nerves. stop poking needles into your capsular ligaments you retard, they can barely ever heal, and if they do its always weaker at the injury site

This is the first they had me do the steroid shots at my neurologist's office,he gave the shots and I will not let them do it again. I've had a nerve study done and my neurologist says it's carpal tunnel syndrome. I'll take his word over a salty fucker trying to tell me I have fucking tennis elbow on 420chan.

Recent tests came back and I got a reading of 161(IU/L) for ALT and 55(IU/L) for AST.. They've both risen slightly since another test conducted about a month ago... Obviously, this is indicative of some kind of liver damage, and I'm extremely worried because I need dat Liver to metabolize other medications, like Accutane and Estradiol (neither of which I've started, btw, so that's not the cause) How concerned should I be? Is this possibly related to something more transient and less threatening, or am I totally fucked?

The only way you'll really figure out how bad your liver damage is by getting an ultrasound or an endoscopy. I had pain in my liver for a long time after drinking alcohol and I found out I had a mild fatty liver and enlarged liver. I took a break from drinking for 5 months and ate food that helps the liver heal and didn't have much problems since. I did drink beer just recently after abstaining and didn't have any problems. I would take a break from anything like drugs or alcohol and get an ultrasound if you want to know for sure.

warts or no warts. That is the question.

I used a solution of KOH on a deep wart once, slid right off, painless.

Of course you don't want to be too liberal with your application of it.

After I exposed the root, I clipped out the infected areas with a cuticle clipper.

You need to be able to prepare the solution though, I used a 20% solution of KOH by weight. Dissolve the KOH/NaOH flakes with hot water.

Anyways, cut out the exposed area, then apply KOH or NaOH with a q tip, little by little. As in dab it on (only on the wart, try not to touch the surrounding skin) let it dry, and do it again. Wipe it with a cloth after a few applications; it should just slide off.

Also wear gloves. Don't get the liquid on your skin. Keep some vinegar ready in case you get it anywhere it shouldn't be.

Chest pain for days after smoking

This is the third time I've experienced this. For two days now after a night of smoking weed from a bong and having some weird breathing and chest tightness issues, I've had some serious chest pain.

It's like a tightness and burning sensation mixed with the occasional sharp pain, but is only noticeable when I take a deep breath or with the vibrations of walking. I cannot take in a deep breath without feeling it.

This is not an everytime-I-smoke kind of thing. I've had this before, but it's been many months since the last time I felt this.

Weirdly, I smoke cigarettes and B&Ms all the time and they cause zero noticeable irritation to my lungs/chest/throat, and never create any lasting tightness like this.

Any ideas about what it could be? It's causing me some serious anxiety.

I used to smoke a bong every day for few years ages 18-20 and I developed what thought was a semi serious/actually serius lung condition similar to wnat you describe. I stopped smoking. weeks later I felt better. I don't like weed anymore so thats the biggest reason that got me to abstain at this point.

Please tell me what this is... Im scared!

I've had this for a few months now and I think it's getting worse

It's nothing major but before whenever I would curl a moderate weight (20lbs) I would feel pain in my elbow but after the second curl the pain would go away.

Now it seems that whenever I make a fist and do a curl motion with or without weight (hammer curl) I feel a little something in my elbow

Is this tendonitis? What can I do to remedy this??

Any of you bastards ever get a tiny flake of metal in your eye? Did you get it removed or did it eventually wash out? Did you have any lasting problems?

I did yesterday and it's a bit worrying. Fortunately it didn't stab into the eyeball; it's just on the surface. I can't feel it most of the time, but I've heard that pain and redness can occur after you sleep and the metal has a chance to shift around and scrape along the eyeball. I'll go to the doctor if there's any irritation after I wake up.

Yea, if it hurts or you can feel it, it may still be there, even if not your eye can be
scratched like crazy. Get some pain stuffs, save unused ones for later. if you
have something ibuprophen doesn't handle.

Yea, had something pretty sharp in my ete. Each time I moved my eye my eye would involentarilly jump around like crazy, making it worse and hurt from very bad to very extreme.

Went to er, the nurse was nice, very cute and comfortable to be 'mostly' alone with, as she was petty darn cool,,

OH anyway, she put drops in my eyes to numb them, instant no pain, then some drops to highlight foreign objects and see damage to the eyes. With a certain light, seemed kinda reddish? Anyway nothing was found but there were a few or some pretty deep scratches, and a lot of scratches going every which direction.

SO off I went with an annoying hospital horror movie looking eye patch that was metal guarding the eye and the stuffing to keep my eye, eyelids from coming in contact with anything. Said two weeks, (two weeks) eh,
after a two days it was soo annoying, 3 days took it off and it was like nothing ever damaged them.

Soo, good luck.

Twice. Once from welding and once from an angle grinder. Even with a face mask and eye wear. Goggles that seal around the eye are the only effective way to prevent it. Both FUCKING SUCKED. I didn't have to get either medically/surgically removed thank god but shit fucking sucks. I washed my eyes for about 20 minutes straight. Both were very small pieces and round so they came out.

Sleeping usually gets shit out of your eye but it can really fuck it up too. Not sure what to tell you broseph.

Thanks guys; I forgot about this thread for a while. A coworker could see the metal in my lower eyelid and removed it easily the day after I made this thread. The irritation went away pretty fast with some eyedrops. A week later I mentioned it to the doctor at a routine checkup, he didn't see any scratches, and he said there's nothing to worry about as long the metal doesn't actually enter the eyeball.

I'll try to keep things short.
>Went into hospital around the 10th jan, had been taking large doses of benzos as well as drinking heavily (10mg alprazolam or equivalent and 500ml whiskey if I had no benzos/on top of the benzos) and taking benzos.
>Had been vomiting violently for a week prior, 20 times or more per day. I was trying to control it with ondansetron and cyclizine together (4mg/50mg 4x daily), they didn't do anything.
>Got prescribed a four day taper of Librium reducing by 10mg per day (40mg - 30mg - 20mg - 10mg - 0mg) along with thyamine and strong vit B complex.
>Might have had a seizure on the 12th, was lying back in bed, seemed to fall asleep then woke up with foam all around my mouth, down my throat and onto the bed. I'm also prescribed 70mg methadone/day, have been prescribed methadone for years now. It was one of the reasons I bothered going to a hospital, in case of heart arrythmia due to benzo/alcohol WD
>Was also peeing out what seemed to be a bright red dye, urine seemed to be a normal colour though it was staining the toilet bowl red, scrubbing did nothing so it had to be bleached out. Figured it was a metabolic dye of some sort and nothing to worry about.
>Haven't been able to get out of bed (other than to walk 1/3 mile downhill to pick up my methadone every day except for sundays. I'm still getting a taxi back up to my house then going straight to bed.
>Have had pains in my lower back, right about where my kidneys are
>I currently seem to have a decreased level of consciousness as well as retrograde amnesia going back about two years, it's like my memory has simply been erased except for small things that come to me in flashes. As well as that I'm having trouble forming new memories.
>I feel extremely fatigued, can barely get up a flight of stairs without feeling like I'm about to pass out, I'm sleeping for 12+ hours per day.
>My right eye is noticibly blurry, especially my peripheral vision. if I look at a bright light with it, or a computer screen the light forms a blurry halo around the edges. This isn't happening with my left eye.
>I'm urinating _extremely_ frequently, up to 4 times an hour at some points; I wake up at least 6 times at night to pee.
>I'm having involuntary spasms
>I have severe anxiety, though this might be due to benzo/alcohol withdrawal

I've tried looking this up online but I'm getting results like MS, brain tumour, Korsakoff syndrome and type-2 diabetes. These all seem _extremely_ unlikely as well as quite serious.
The only drugs which I frequently take are methadone (70mg/day) and promethazine (50mg/night), I IV Heroin once or twice a week too and infrequently take most psychedelics and dissociates though I take stimulants extremely rarely. I've not drank or taken benzos since the 10th Jan.

Anyone here a medical practitioner? Able to offer any insight? I plan on seeing my GP, which will take a while (weeks probably) though will be free of charge (NHS); I'll see if I can speak to my methadone-prescribing doctor next time I pick up my script; though methadone docs spec in psychiatry and I only usually see my doc during medical reviews (every 3-6 months) for 20 minutes at most, the rest of the time everything is managed by a key-worker who is a nurse.

It sounds like youve been putty heavy stresses and damages to your body which your healing factor couldnt keep up with. I dont know your genetics but it would be useful to know if your relatives have any health problems. You should taper off the benzos and taper off the booze sharply. Your bored and miserable without direction so perhaps a church or guidance would change your behavior. Methadone is also throwing a wrench into your system which has a dominoe effect. Its pretty likley your family upbringing wasnt that good and your friends are probably as shady as you sound to be. Benzos are bad for memories. Anyways i wonder if this helps. Tldr quit doing drugs or just smoke pot and change friends.

Most of the symptoms you listed are typical of alcohol/benzo w/d (especially the neurological shit - it's a bitch), but the discolored urine and lower back/potential kidney pain may suggest some moderate level of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhabdomyolysis , possibly stemming from the seizures (as well as the general hell this type of w/d puts your body through).

It might be a good idea to get it checked out (it can be diagnosed or ruled out via a blood test and a urine test). While it wouldn't be as severe a case as some of the more dramatic effects listed under that link (you'd be dead, so don't freak), I'd still recommend doing what you can to minimize any potential damage to your kidneys (even if it doesn't turn out to be rhabdo).

>Most people who have sustained kidney impairment due to rhabdomyolysis fully recover their kidney function.

In the meantime, stay well hydrated, and perhaps take a screencap of your OP to look at if you're ever considering picking that shit back up again. Do note that alcohol and benzo withdrawal has the potential to outright kill you in and of itself, and gets worse each time you go through it.

So my medical records have BORDERLINE PERSONALITY DISORDER in caps all over them and it often causes doctors to treat me badly. I have lupus and some other reasonably serious health problems and I feel that my mental health label has seriously interfered with treatment while helping me in pretty much no way whatsoever.

I pretty much agree that I have BPD but a less pejorative way of putting it would be that I have PTSD from a lifetime of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. I don't even care if everyone is looking at me as a suicide risk--it's being preemptively and erroneously perceived as a liar that I'm worried about. Is there any way I can possibly change this diagnosis?

If you can, find where you somehow were diagnosed with this. Different people within the medical community have different ways of thinking. So find the source, likely their website has info to remove to restrict handling of personal info.

Cannabidiol has very inconsistent effects when combined with psychedelics. I would never advice trying cannabidiol with psychedelics if you aren't experienced.
I once took 1.5 grams of golden teachers, smoked some weed and suddenly I was launched into a 5 gram experience.
From the knowledge I've gained by reading other people's experiences. A relative big group of all bad trips happen when mixing weed and psychedelics.

I have taken mushrooms a handful of times. The only time I smoked weed was once while coming down about ~12 hours after ingesting. I considered myself sobering up, but only in comparison to a full blown trip on an 1/8th of mushrooms.

The marijuana "recharged" my psychedelic trip and threw me into a very intense psychedelic-high. It was not like the trip I had earlier, or like any mushroom trip I had before. Maybe it is better to just recall what I remember:

I was sitting in a room with my friends, passing the pipe around. After a couple hits I began to feel very strange, coming into a intense body high and then having bizarre perceptions of reality. Everyone around me was moving in "frames", as though existence was played out through the eyes like stills in a reel that creates a movie. Everyone moved frame by frame and I was able to see and comprehend every single frame of moment. In a word, people were robots, jerking around in an unfathomable amount of different directions. Arms moved, muscles I never knew existed contracted and relaxed on every surface of the skin. I saw it all.

That may have been a very personal side effect, my own perception. I do not think at all that any one person's experience with THC and psychedelics will be the same. All I can say is that it launched me out of sobering up and into a very intense and mentally uncomfortable head trip. I do not recall if there were bodily sensations, but I am sure there were.

I do not know what CBD is, if it is somehow different from smoking Indica/Sativa. I don't know my weed too well.
