OK, so long story short, I ended up in the hospital because I had a seizure after taking some DOM. I think the seizure might have been an interaction with some of my psychiatric meds (Lithium, aripiprazole, or bupropion). I got in trouble and now I'm in court. However, they said they ran blood tests on me at the hospital and told me that I had:

-Cocaine
-PCP
-Amphetamines
-Barbituates
-Methadone
-Opiates
-...
  • Etc

in my system. I had taken the DOM before with no ill effects and it did not feel especially laced. My lawyer says there's nothing we can do since the hospital is saying the lab report is correct, but they're trying to say I was on all these different drugs when all I was on was some DOM and weed.

So /med/, my questions for you are..

  • Is it possible the DOM or weed was laced? It was not noticeable when I used them and I am an experienced user.
  • Is it possible my psychiatric meds caused a false positive?
  • What can I do to prove I was not on this extensive list of drugs?

I did the footwork myself. My doctor is associated with the same hospital outpatient clinic and she did me the favor of bringing up all my toxicology reports on her computer. We went through every one and found the blood test for the date of my hospitalization, the one they were using, and found it was only positive for THC and amph. She then suggested I get my medical records from the hospital and bring it to the attention of my attorney, which I already have done. I'm just waiting on the official copy from the hospital medical records department.

Sorry, reading comprehension fail.

The DA read a "medical report," I don't know if it was from the hospital or some other person, but it was a summary of the medical records not the medical records themselves.

If anything the DA should have had a copy of of the medical records knowing the drugs you were supposedly on. Too little information. If this is a criminal case, did you possibly state that you were on all of these drugs, at the time of the incident or sated accidentally you had done these drugs in the past. Did the DA state this in the courtroom.

Don't know what to say.

More seriously, I spent 5 days in solitary confinement in the "glass house" in Los Angeles. I figured about 10 days had passed when they finally let me out.

I think journaling your thoughts daily is a good way to prevent insanity, since you can always review your thoughts to see if you've gone insane.

I toured one of our prisons. Went down death row. Which housed maybe 8 people out of ten cells. Some had been there for decades. No contact except for family behind glass, or video link, these days. Guards to feed them 3 times a day without any real human contact, attorneys, and hour on the yard alone.

I looked at these people, the tour guard gaurd said not to get close to the cells but I did anyway. They were behind glass and an inch of space under the door and less on the sides. I would have liked to talk to these people. They seemed serene, content, maybe even oblivious we were there, without any other way to put it. But there was a certain light in their eyes also. Maybe one of consciousness of
life.,

Just though I'd share. I had been stuck in the system, city jail locked down over 23 hours a day for a week more than once. Just sleep. Look out windows, looking for ideas to get out, thinking will I ever get out. In jail I never really cared to hang out with others, so I just kept myself, sleeping most of the time. Depressed sure. Would rather sleep and spend day and night in a closet at home rather than be in jail.

No Sexual Pleasure - WHY?

I'm a sexually confused, mid-20's male. I don't know what's wrong with me on this one.

I can't seem to enjoy any form of sex - even if I'm with a girl whom I like, who makes me comfortable, is patient and isn't judgmental in the slightest.

E.G. In the case of receiving oral sex, all it will do is tickle me. Great. I could never cum from that, even after hours. Seriously. That's an impossibility.

Self-masturbation doesn't bring me much pleasure either (even as a virgin I already thought it was overrated). I mostly do it to de-stress before bed since I have insomnia, really. I do get a rush of adrenaline towards the end, sometimes, but it's rare. Still, it's still extremely boring towards the whole process leading up to that and not worth the effort (unless it helps put me to me sleep).

What is wrong with me? I feel like turning asexual would be easier at this point. My penis feels pretty much numb whatever the 'activity' is. There's a complete lack of sensation, could it be my actual nerves?

It might have something to do with a diagnosed severe depression I have, although I don't take meds known to cause such issues. Plus, as a teen I didn't have meds either yet already still didn't get what my classmates were on about and didn't enjoy it as much as they did. Again, to me it was 'meh'.

The worst thing is, I do get aroused at first and want to share something with my girl. Yet when it comes down to it my penis goes flaccid inside her vagina, what the heck. I blame it on the condoms making me go soft (for now) but I know that even if it does contribute it can't be just that. My penis is already numb so of course a condom isn't going to help.

Sorry for talking so long about my old chap - as some refer to it. It's been months I thought about posting this, seriously. Some genuine insights could really help me here. I will never be satisfied in my sex life this way, that's for sure. I have to find a solution and if none exists, well... I'll just erase sex from my life.

Oh and I went to a GP... Only she was a young stunning brunette (didn't know at first) and like a coward I couldn't bring myself to pull my pants down and expose it. Yay for irrational anxiety when working with professional doctors.

Thanks for listening if you made it this far, guys. If you have any idea what could cause this, that would be greatly appreciated.

While it might not be a bad ideal to try. The whole nofap movement is filled with a lot of cultish individuals, and some people with bizarre views on sex. Like the original sub-leddit exists in some sort of alternate reality these days.

Jock itch?

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

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

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

>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.

That's scary. Maybe an MRI will reveal something.

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.
