Irregular heartbeat when masturbating

When I masturbate I can feel my heart beating irregularly and skipping beats. It doesn't happen when I'm doing other types of exercise. Should I be worried about this? How do I bring this up with my doctor?

Do you have a history of heart disease in your family? Are you overweight? Do you smoke cigarettes or eat a lot of dairy and meat?

Regardless, talk to your doctor. If you feel uncomfortable, replace "masturbation" with "sex" and you'll be all set.

Chronic Pain

How does one deal with chronic pain?

I was in a car accident 8 months ago that has severely fucked me over. Most everything has healed now, but my back is always a low-grade annoyance that occasionally flares up into agonizing spasms that leave me unable to move for days.

It's very frustrating to live like this. I'm in physical rehab 3x a week, see a doc regularly - nothing works. And I'm not going to take pain meds for life. This is fucked.

I got you OP. For one, seeing your doctor and going to rehab are all great things, even if they don't seem like they're doing anything. I know you said you don't want to take pain meds for life, so you might be open to hearing me out.

Here's what I recommend, as someone who literally only has first-aid level training (and some non-professional experience in public health and nutrition) and shouldn't be recommending anything at all: make dietary changes to reduce chronic inflammation. A lot of different foods (mostly animal products, but not exclusively) contribute to chronic inflammation, which both causes pain and prevents healing. For me, it's my broken thumb. It's not broken any more but when I eat like shit for weeks on end and don't move around enough, it starts hurting chronically. Other injuries flare up too for the same reasons, a bum ankle, a damaged wrist- but when I keep myself eating healthy, drinking lots of water, and getting exercise/blood flow, I find that my pain evaporates. I've been doing this for a few years now, ever since I quit heroin basically, and I'm finding that my injuries aren't merely subsiding in pain, but are getting better! My wrist, which has been a problem every since I injured it years ago, has gotten to the point over the last year where I can do most things again with no pain at all, and a greater feeling of stability. Same with my shoulder.

So yeah if that sounds good, let me know and we can talk more about diet. Next up is exercise. I'm sure your physical therapist is working toward this goal with you already, but it's worth saying that your back will prosper if you strengthen the supporting muscle groups that prop it up. Talk with your therapist about that, and be active and consistent, even after you stop seeing them. Those guys see tons of people, and they know best that none of those people will keep up with the work to maintain recovery, and they accept it begrudgingly. If you show them that you're serious about healing yourself, they'll be more likely to commit to you too.

The other trick is cutting out bad foods without going insane. If you can learn to cook some healthy foods, you'll have a much easier time transitioning to a diet that focuses on avoiding inflammation. Maybe go to /nom/ and ask for recipes, or ask and we can chat about some of my staples.

Back injuries are scary. Just remember that the human body is OP as fuck, and you're not alone in healing yourself.

try getting some massage from an experienced therapist. won't fix your spine or discs or whatever but reducing muscle tension can mitigate pain

to;Dr
Person was 30 days sober of opiates confirmed by inpatient. Got the vivitrol shot.
Person relapsed today and was high at work used heroin dosage unknown ,possible fentanyl, closest other medication is Gabapentin that he is prescribed. and diphenhydramine (We are in Chicago) He was able to be inconspicuous, however my Dad knows him enough to know that he was offf
He gets bussed to the hospital, given Naloxone

- He is BLATANTLY impaired.
-Most fucked I've heard a voice get from any opiate intake, sounds completely different.
-His complaints align with precipitated withdrawals. EXCEPT he is now going to sleep, I don't know if he's nodding but he seems like a Thorazine zombie.
- Word salad
- Obnoxious slur, as if he was faking poorly to be drunk.
- He can shit but is itchy

He was on heroin, nothing else confirmed.
I have suboxone in the house if that could help(highly doubt it, especially seeing what naloxone did.)

Anything I should expect? Outside the Ordinary withdrawals of opioids.

Acetylcholine and seroquel

So, I had a court mandate to take seroquel (200mg morning/night and then later 600mg at night) for about two years. It fucked up my body and mind. They took me off it when I got pancreatitis (but wouldn't admit it caused it conclusively) and since then I've felt a lot better. I'm trying to figure out how to repair the damage it did because I think it fucked up my acetycholine receptors and mental acuity a bit. Not to mention weight gain, my entire limbic system got backed up and I felt like shit for quite a while, too. I think I'll recover naturally in time but I'm also paranoid. Tobacco and nicotine seem to help quite a bit but it's a transient restoration. Is there any other way I can repair the damage of this bullshit drug using a pharmaceutical or other therapeutic means?

Remeron is an anti-depressant that seems to make most feel pretty well overall.

I had a really bad reaction to some pain meds I was prescribed, and I've been puking for 6-7 hours now, literally there looks to be over a gallon of vomit in my trash can alone, and that's not the only place I puked.
I tried some canada dry ginger ale, until I found out there's no fucking ginger in it. Now I'm straight water and ice cubes. This is my fourth attempt to keep something down, I'm scared I'm moderately to severely dehydrated. at what point should I be going to the emergency room

One trick I knew from someone who had struggled with a bad flu was to enjoy a popsicle slowly to get the melting juices from it so as not to consume too much and have another gut reaction but still provide some minimal hydration and nutrients to the body.

Cannabis of course can suppress nausea and is my go to when I need it for such, I prefer to smoke it when feeling nauseated as consuming edibles or drinks is not fun with an upset gut.

I took half a benny and got about an hour of sleep, before that I was up for 3 days. Probably going to check into the ER tomorrow and get an IV drip so I don't die of thirst. I'll ask them what they can do for me. I never want to see another tramadol again, why do they even prescribe this shit, when this is a known and common problem? Well I know why because it's cheap, and it be prescribed by doctors lower on the totem pole.

Go to the ER. Might be other shit going on. I was puking really bad from my kidney stone pain and went to ER. Turned out I was in shock, kidney was swollen, stone was stuck, and they randomly found a scar in my right lung (wut). was puking violently all night, and even 4-8mg of Zofran wasn't stopping it. (Also tried ginger root, usually works well. and nothing)



Coping with migraine life / preventing them maybe

I've always had headaches, but now this. Over the past few years, I've started getting migraines, and since then I've been gradually been getting them more and more frequently. My neurologist has given me a prescription for Maxalt, which usually works if I have one with me to consume. But on days where I wake up with ine, or I just don't have any with me, I'm fucked. Aside from the pills, I try to remember vitamin D.

Is there anything I can do to ease any of the various pains or vomiting? Force my body to digest the foods in my stomach? Or more I can do to prevent them from happening in the first place? I'm losing my social life because of it, and losing money because I'd have to call in to work if I wake up with one. Please help.

The skinny of it is after at least six months of ear infections (reappearing in the same ear) along with getting a spray style cleaning kit for wax, they managed to find liquid trapped behind the canal. These last two months have been quite taxing, but I have an apointment on the 13th of July with an ENT.

What should I expect in terms of treatment and protocal? I know I could look it up, but I'm concerned with the potential underling pain. Although I was told by my primary it would be more so instant release once all is said in done.

Yes, both by drops and oral pills/tablets. I just got some steroids Mon from my PCP. So the complications are somewhat abated until the appointment. They wanted to do a test run before stretching it.

I'm unsure if any infections are still in play. When I saw the PCP on the 23rd, they didn't mention a current ear infection. They didn't want to give me another round of antibiotics seeing as I've had them in my system at such a frequency.

(I apologize for any typos I'm lopsided and disjointed. So hopefully I'm not totally incompressible.)

I don't know much about it, but I bet there's a way to fry your tongue's tasting ability, not unlike how we can destroy our hearing or eyesight (by airhorn addiction and screen-staring respectively).

There are some foods out there that can change tastes into other tastes though. Miraculin is a compound in a strange fruit (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synsepalum_dulcificum) that makes sour foods like lemons taste sweet. I'd love to try it.

Miraculin's cool. As far as frying tasting ability, the other two are based on overwhelming amounts of stimuli but I can't think of how you'd achieve that same thing with flavor

Medium depth peeling and hyperpigmentation

Any dermatologists here? I was wondering, if someone has dermal hyperpigmentation and did medium depth chemical peels, to what extend can the hyperpigmentation be removed? I just read pic related and I was wondering if I did one medium peel and then another a couple of weeks later, if the second one helped to improve the hyperpigmentation further. The epidermis seems to move from the bottom to the surface, as new cells are generated and the old ones die and fall off at the surface. So any epidermal melanin will move to the surface as well. Now if a medium depth peel affected the upper layer of the dermis, would melanin located slightly lower than that ever move upwards with subsequent peels?
I'm doing this because I have eruptive syringoma, but I don't have a problem with the bumps, I just want to diminish the darker pigmentation of them.

He must be in his sixties and has apparently written a memoir and became a lawyer but I'm not quite convinced he has polio and has been faking it the whole time. Is it easy to fake being crippled from the neck down for money or to avoid work?

so, i jumped from a car when i was a teenager and fucked up my shoulder on one side, lucky to be alive
i also broke my left leg a few times, it's super fucked up and tilted out about 30
degrees to the left
Some serious injuries to face and head, too, but I think they're mostly cosmetic
I had numerous untreated fractures in my ribs and a basically infinite number of scrapes and bruises accumulated over a tough period of my life, and then on top of that, extreme weight loss and gain
The lower part of my back is fucked up, too, there could be many reasons, car accidents, falls, etc. It's something about the flexibility of the lombard. When I do a deep squat, I have to round at the very bottom to avoid a sharp pain.

My body is super fucked up. I have a home gym now and work out there and cardio outside.

So, I wanted to check with /med/ about my recovery plan..

I soak with epsom salts for various random pains and sores, and receive massages sometimes. My skin hurts basically all the time on some affected regions and it's not really clear to me why but I think it is the recent weight loss. so, i jumped from a car when i was a teenager and fucked up my shoulder on one side, lucky to be alive

I'm worried I have serious strength imbalances and other things that impair performance and free movement, but not sure how to check them out. My PCP basically can only see me for half an hour every six months. I've considered going to a specialist but I'm not really sure where to start.

When I am done getting myself in shape again, I expect my body to be riddled with scars in various places, but I want it to look basically like a thin, cut muscular man. I've asked on /fit/ for various things so this is just the medical side of it.
