>Officials distribute five bottles of water per person each week to ration the resources
I'm going to assume the 'bottles' are gallons, because otherwise the ration is just insane. Even if they get 5 gallons a week, that's not enough water for some. On average, a healthy man should drink .78 gallons of water a day. It would be enough water for women, who should drink .57 gallons of water a day.
Quick facts for y'all about testicular cancer and why you should be conscious of your risks. My buddy was able to catch it early, so his outlook is incredibly promising. Please be aware of your risks and the symptoms.
Please please please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the symptoms of testicular cancer.
It's important to emphasize that Dissociation has multiple meanings. You are specifically experiencing "a sense that self or the world is unreal (depersonalization and derealization)."
The feeling is very common, with roughly 1/3 of people reporting having had experienced it at some point in their life time. When these experiences become frequent and interfere with daily life, they can be part of a disorder known as Depersonalization-derealization disorder.
Here's some information about it and its symptoms from the Mayo Clinic.
According to the article, you should see a doctor if you have feelings of depersonalization or derealization that:
-Are disturbing you or are emotionally disruptive
-Don't go away or keep coming back
-Interfere with work, relationships or daily activities
Tell them you found out it's actually Plantar fasciitis; a common injury to runners. It's EXTREMELY painful but there's no exterior symptoms.
No. A concussion is caused by trauma to the cranium that causes the brain to contact the inside of the skull with enough force to cause an injury. Since insects lack endoskeletons and dedicated brain cases, any trauma that may be sufficient to cause a concussion will simply kill the insect outright.
I had to google what the F is Graves Disease holy shit that might sounds like being in menopause all your life and pmsing at the same time.

The foods don't interfere with the medication, but:
>Medications called monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) block an enzyme known as monoamine oxidase, which breaks down excess tyramine in the body. Blocking this enzyme helps relieve depression.
>If you take an MAOI and you eat high-tyramine foods, tyramine can quickly reach dangerous levels. This can cause a serious spike in blood pressure and require emergency treatment.
It doesn't sound like it neutralizes them, like Citric Acid does with things like Adderrall or Grapefruit and Statins.
I had VERY aggressive advanced acute myeloid leukemia and went to Mayo clinic in the US for treatment. PLEASE see my top level comment. This is beatable!!
Please get in contact with Dr. Mrinal Patnaik at Mayo clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. He is highly specialized in leukemia and stem cell transplants/post transplant care. He literally lives for this and is one of the most sincere and extremely intelligent people you will ever meet.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to me and I will try to answer/help how I can.
You didn't ask for advice or suggestions, but... is it possible that what you have is not recurrent UTIs, at all, but rather interstitial cystitis? I only bring it up because you mentioned the standard preventive measures for UTIs not helping, and I have a friend in your situation who was recently diagnosed with this lesser known condition.
This is late stage lymphedema. If you've had it long enough you start to have skin changes that form thick plaques. [link]
Eating less is the one huge thing that will reduce someone's weight. Which is the topic at hand.
Even at the extreme, a person weighing 300 pounds will burn about 170 calories, per mile. There's no way a 300 pound person is walking faster than 2mph especially if it's for more than a couple miles. If they weigh less than that then they burn less calories.
In comparison a candy bar, a hotdog, or two tablespoons of butter/peanut butter is approximately 200 calories.
To lose a pound of fat you need to have a deficit adding up to 3,500 calories. That's about twenty miles.
It's far easier to cut out calories than it is to burn them off by walking. It's misleading to the point of intellectual dishonesty to pretend that exercise is an effective way to lose weight compared to dieting.
Admitted. I went with Mayo Clinic's assessment: "A normal resting heart rate for adults ranges from 60 to 100 beats a minute." However as these guys are likely athletes, that rate should err to the low end. So...lets say it's a resting heart rate for someone driving a 20-story robot into a brawl?
Recommendation for Trump from the Mayo Clinic:
>Vitamin B-12 helps maintain healthy nerve cells and red blood cells. Vitamin B-12 deficiency — most common in older adults and vegetarians — can cause various signs and symptoms, including memory loss. In these cases, vitamin B-12 supplements can help improve memory.
This has been studied and it's something to do with fetal alcohol syndrome. I'm not even kidding. FAS is also associated with a number of mental illnesses and cognitive dysfunctions to include:
>Physical defects may include:
>Distinctive facial features, including small eyes, an exceptionally thin upper lip, a short, upturned nose, and a smooth skin surface between the nose and upper lip
Thin lip- check
Smooth passage between thin lip and nose- check

Vasovagal Syncope is more common than I ever thought and I noticed the muffled sounds often too. After lots of testing they found that I pass out on a "tilt table test". Basically, if I stand too quickly I'm prone to the drop in blood pressure (which causes muffled sounds and fainting occasionally).
I am not a professional but I believe your symptoms are highly suggestive of clinical depression. If so, this is not something you can "power" your way out of. Nor is it reflective of any deficit on your part. It's also bigger than any one semister. There are also some other physical problems that can cause this too so depression is not the only possibility.
Contact your primary care physician ASAP. They will help you find the right path to take. If it is depression, I've lived (successfully) for years with this condition. Don't take no for an answer. You can't do this on your own.
Check out this Mayo Clinic link and see if it rings any bells.
medically it's vasovagal syncope. Scroll down to causes and see "straining". I remember this shit from EMT school. My instructors had far too many stories about old men passing out on the toilet because they needed to drink more prune juice. To this day the Vagus nerve is my favourite cranial nerve.
Well yes, if you are deficient in vitamin C then taking supplements will improve the immune system. Is is a vitamin after all, we need them to function.
However, most people with any resemblance of a varied diet don't have deficiencies. The Mayo Clinic writes:
>Extensive research has shown that vitamin C taken by mouth lacked an effect on cold prevention.
The only evidence where supplementation seems to work is for people that expose their bodies to extreme stress (professional athletes etc). Again, from the Mayo Clinic:
>Vitamin C reduced the risk of developing colds, by roughly 50% in people under physical stress or in extreme conditions, such as soldiers in the subarctic, skiers, and marathon runners.
It wasn't Parkinsons, it was Lewy body dementia which has Parkinsons-like symptoms. He was quite litterally feeling his mind deteriorate.
>Research on CoQ10 use for specific conditions and activities shows:
>Heart conditions. CoQ10 has been shown to improve symptoms of congestive heart failure. Although findings are mixed, CoQ10 might help reduce blood pressure. Some research also suggests that when combined with other nutrients, CoQ10 might aid recovery in people who've had bypass and heart valve surgeries.
>Parkinson's disease. Early research suggests that high doses of CoQ10 might be beneficial for people in the early stages of this progressive disorder of the nervous system that affects movement.
Statin-induced myopathy. Some research suggests that CoQ10 might help ease muscle weakness sometimes associated with taking statins.
>Migraines. Some research suggests that CoQ10 might decrease the frequency of these headaches.
>Physical performance. Because CoQ10 is involved in energy production, it's believed that this supplement might improve your physical performance. Research in this area has produced mixed results, however.
Seems like that factors beyond your control, like genetics, have a significant impact. Factors like obesity and inactivity however, have also been linked with high ldl density.
Mayo Clinic SIDS
“Sharing a bed. While the risk of SIDS is lowered if an infant sleeps in the same room as his or her parents, the risk increases if the baby sleeps in the same bed with parents, siblings or pets.”
> acne...literally means that the woman is unable or unwilling to take care of themselves.
Acne is mostly caused by hormones, genetics, and diet, not dirty skin.
This is about cancer screening, but does cover what you're looking for.
Also, breasts can and do swell on their own in the menstrual cycle and also during arousal, so not only will density vary from woman to woman, it may vary on the same woman.
IANA physician (at least not yet lmao), but from your description and your pictures, this looks much more like folliculitis caused by recurring staph infections. The color of your of your blood goes from dark red when it is deoxygenated to bright red when it is oxygenated. The reason you didn’t taste the iron in the blood when you licked it was probably because it was mixed with pus, which would also affect it’s viscosity and color. Also, most staph bacteria produce a protein called coagulase. This protein causes blood to clot. If you do have folliculitis from staph, this could also maybe explain the viscosity of your blood. The picture where you show what you think is a parasite looks more like a blood clot than a parasite to me. You should consult a dermatologist and let them perform the diagnosis, they are more than qualified to help you. I am not licensed to perform diagnoses, nor to give any kind of medical advice other than “go to the doctor”, but I am 99% sure that you do not have any kind of skin parasite.
Well when you have a disease like Lewy Body Dementia it's pretty hard for anyone to help you, let alone help yourself. It's tragic that he had such a vampire of a disease, but understandable that in such a case he'd want to go out on his own terms.
Vaginal-rectal fistula that got ripped open, maybe.
No pictures at that link, just medical explanation. Trauma from prolonged labor can weaken and damage the walls between the vagina and rectum, or vagina and urethra. You end up with piss or shit leaking out the vagina. Or in this case, the next baby tries to find his way out the back door.
In countries where medical care is hard to access, women get these and don't get treatment, and end up societal pariahs because they're unclean and can't control their bladder/bowel habits or have more children. Pregnancy is horror story stuff at the best of times. Keep birth control legal, kids.

Just to tag onto the original question...
Has there been any study to the effect of Chemotherapy on hair follicles? I've heard from a few different people that have gone through it that their hair grew back coarser and curlier. I'm finding confirmation on Mayo's website but they list the effect as temporary.
> It may take several weeks after treatment for your hair to recover and begin growing again. When your hair starts to grow back, it will probably be slightly different from the hair you lost. But the difference is usually temporary. Your new hair might have a different texture or color. It might be curlier than it was before, or it could be gray until the cells that control the pigment in your hair begin functioning again.
I find lots of studies on the hair loss portion of Chemo, but I'm not having a lot of success on finding studies on the returning hair after.
Had to Google that one -- link for the lazy.
But that sounds horribly painful and I hope you're better now.
Your friend is a murder hobo. I wouldn't want to play with this guy. Sounds like you don't either. Tell him that.
> Forms of cancer have been shown to be curable by essentially "bombing" the body with Vitamin C -- a nutrient we are taught is "useless" to consume in excess amounts.
"Useless" as in "your body can only absorb so much." It's basic fucking chemistry. Americans have some of the most vitamin-rich urine in the world because we take supplements with more in them than our bodies can use at once.
Also, high doses of Vitamin C as an effective cancer treatment is complete bullshit. That is, unless you want to go out feeling like Steve Jobs...
> The signs and symptoms of a concussion can be subtle and may not show up immediately. Symptoms can last for days, weeks or even longer.
Delayed onset for concussions is pretty common, just because she didn't want to stop working doesn't mean her injury wasn't serious.
> What is the Mayo clinic?
Don't forget that there's a meme out there suggesting that they are harvesters of organs sold out to the highest bidder via the CF. Not going to say one way or another whether I believe it. Just saying it's out there.
> Who sits on the Board of Directors of the Mayo Clinic?

Nope, I was confusing Cokie Roberts with Mika. [link]
I've seen this warning printed directly on honey labels. You could show her the written warning if you haven't already. She cant deny it in print.

It's most likely conversion disorder
Not that it's something to ignore, but she unlikely had anything physiologically wrong with her. There are some diseases that cause things like this, but they are exceedingly rare.
If you want to be worried about something random, here you go. On medical board exams, the presentation is usually summed up by "patient goes swimming in a lake. A few days later, they present to the ED and die despite all treatment." The treatment is basically to throw the most hardcore drugs possible at it and hope for the best, but it rarely works. There haven't even been enough positive cases to have established an evidence base for effective treatment last I heard.
Doing some research, he could be at the Lexington Clinic, which, according to their website, does rehab for Frozen Shoulders. What is frozen shoulder? "Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, is a condition characterized by stiffness and pain in your shoulder joint".
He could just be visiting friends or something. Idk
I hope she doesn't have it, sometimes people pick up symptoms like fleas if, for example she lived with a parent or sibling or ex who had BPD and acted like that, (edit: or even a best friend, teacher or boss at work could be the original source) she may have just picked up the behavior, and in that case, it's a lot easier to un-learn and pick a more productive way to resolve conflicts.
Here's a page from the Mayo Clinic so you can compare and contrast symptoms.
You have to be super-careful online because there are A LOT of quacks and bitter ex-es out there who paint all BPD people as irredeemable psychos. In my experience, having a good time with a BPD person is like playing double-dutch jump-rope. At first it seems impossible but with a little bit of observation, practice, and just getting into the groove and rhythm, you can jump in and have a great time. You just need the energy, the positive attitude, and the stamina to keep going.
No. The gum itself doesn't really do anything, except maybe give you something to think about, but it makes people swallow which is what helps airplane ears. You could also suck on a hard candy or drink something, which is what I usually see recommended for little kids or babies.
I get what you’re saying.
But the post isn’t wrong at all. Exercise has been proven to mitigate depression and anxiety. I can also speak from personal experience
Donald Trump's father died of Alzheimer's, and Alzheimer's can be a hereditary disease:
> Family history and genetics
> Your risk of developing Alzheimer's appears to be somewhat higher if a first-degree relative — your parent or sibling — has the disease. Scientists have identified rare changes (mutations) in three genes that virtually guarantee a person who inherits them will develop Alzheimer's. But these mutations account for less than 5 percent of Alzheimer's disease.
> Most genetic mechanisms of Alzheimer's among families remain largely unexplained. The strongest risk gene researchers have found so far is apolipoprotein e4 (APoE4), though not everyone with this gene goes on to develop Alzheimer's disease. Other risk genes have been identified but not conclusively confirmed.
There is a likely chance that Trump has Alzheimer's Disease.
You'd think everyone in this thread was an extremely advanced healthcare professional with the confidence they sling around, yet all of their soothsaying about how the Chinese media exaggerated his fever and that his statement was inaccurate is all bullshit. 40 degree fevers will not cause your brain to leak out of your ears, or give you a stroke, give me a fucking break.
40 degree fevers are high, but not serious enough to warrant going to the doctor/ER as anyone is suggesting unless it's 40 degrees, staying there, and you're a young child. Simple google searches will show that having a 104 fever as an adult is not nearly as serious as a child, and even then 104 fevers in children is not even remotely a death sentence.
Since he's based off of real-life shogi player Satoshi Murayama, and shares many of the qualities, like pudginess that developed from the disease and the medicine to combat it, it's most likely Nephrotic syndrome. Satoshi Murayama eventuality succumbed to complications from this at age 29.
I think the problem with MSG reactions is that there is no known cause, and double-blind studies have shown that people will "react" to foods even without it.
Regardless of that, whether someone actually has an actual allergic reaction or a psychosomatic reaction, the outcome is the same. So why press people on it? The upside is that you can rest assured that she's likely not having a physical reaction given that MSG is present in a lot of foods naturally.
Exactly. I'm not defending the anti-vaxxer, but a quick google search shows that some women do still ovulate.
It still is a mental health disorder. It seems that he has something similar, if not, antisocial personality disorder.
The very structure of SJW and feminist ideals is pretty close to an identical psychological map of how cluster b personalities work.
Look at the signs and symptoms of Borderline personality disorder.
The test for Down Syndrome isn't amniocentesis to start with. They take blood around 13 weeks and then around 18 weeks. They also do a scan (ultrasound) to look for developmental signs of Down's and 2 other trisomy disorders. (I don't remember the exact dates and disorders as it's been a few years.)
If those turn up as a high probability of Down's or the other 2, then amniocentesis is recommended. (It's quite invasive and carries a small risk of miscarriage.)

Weeeell giving birth can result in tears so a vagina will not always be completely the same afterwards - although it would be a rare event for a vagina to be so different that you could tell with your penis.
I’d say pregnancy has a greater impact on abdominal muscles - not that they can’t come back together but it can take a long time.

Likely a vasovagal response. I first learned about this when I got up for my first pee of the morning only to wake up on the bathroom floor. Quick rush to the hospital to make sure everything was OK and the Dr determined it was because I was pushing a bit too hard peeing. Add in being a bit groggy after first waking up and standing up and you can pinch just the right nerve to go out like a light. Since then I sit for my first pee of the morning per Dr recommendation.
It also explained what happened to a friend of mine when three of us were tent camping. He was outside the tent peeing in the bushes when I heard "thud!" followed by snoring. He was laughing the next morning because he had wondered why he woke up in the grass with his penis hanging out.
As long as you are mobile under your own power (including the ability to wake yourself up when your body tells you to), it's very unlikely that you'll cause yourself real injury this way.
See this: Ever wake up to a numb, dead arm? Here’s what’s happening. (source: Vox, discussing with Mayo clinic Neurology researcher Dr James Dyck)
- the tingling is nerve compression, not constricted blood flow
- you will spontaneously turn or wake up if your body senses that your nerves have been compressed too long, and before damage is done.
- the tingling pins-and-needles is your nerves coming 'back to life' after compression by spontaneously firing, not an indication of damage.
Oh, it can get you at a much younger age aswell, [link] ,and another article, [link]
The blind spot is visible under certain circumstances. Here is an article about blind spots and how to see yours.
Do you see white spots on a blue field? If so you might be seeing your own white blood cells. You could also have eye floaters which are common and can be part of the normal aging process. Though if they are changing, associated with flashes of light, or are associated with vision loss, you should see a doctor.
What about them? Are you suggesting a dildo can cause that? That seems pretty unlikely, do you have a source or do you think it's just the old bad anatomy idea that "big dicks destroy pussy"?
Dildos are not even mentioned in any list of causes of uterine or bladder prolapse that I can find. Considering the popularity of sex toys, you would think at least some medical institution would mention it if it was such a risk. You can see the actual causes here:
His current weight isn't the problem. How he got there is.
He's gone from 270 to 140 pounds in 6 months. Assuming there are 3500 calories per pound of fat, that 130 pound weight loss is equivalent to a 2500 calorie deficit per day. That is extreme, to say the least. Healthy weight loss is generally taken to be 2 pounds per week as an upper limit; this is almost three times more than that.
He's had issues with self-image in the past, he's made a sudden change to his eating habits, and he's lying and making excuses for why he can't eat around family. And he wants to lose more weight in addition to this.
I don't agree with some people here that immediate residential treatment is a necessity (although eating disorders have the highest mortality rate among mental illnesses, have very poor recovery rates and honestly inpatient might not be an overreaction), but this is clearly disordered behaviour and OP's son does need to see a doctor now, not when he's fainting during the day and left with long term heart issues.
Not a doctor.
I've experienced vasovagal syncope. It's a condition where you'll occasionally pass out from a sudden drop in blood pressure caused by the 'vasovagal reflex'. Often there's a trigger (heat exposure and urinating/defecating are two), but not always. For me, it's the sight of blood or strong pain - I've learned to control it and I know how to stop it when I feel it coming.
A tip: If you ever get those symptoms again (head rush, your vision going black and white, ringing in your ears, dizziness), lie down. Get your legs at the same level or above your head. It's a lot harder to pass out this way - the mechanism for passing out from vasovagal (or any other reflex syncope) is a sudden loss in blood pressure causing blood to pool in your feet, so your head doesn't get enough blood. If you lie down, the heart doesn't have to work as hard, and you get some blood to your head.
But yeah, see a real doctor for a real diagnosis. This is just my personal experience, thought I'd tell you since it sounds like you're freaking out about aneurysms and other really serious stuff - I have something similar and it's not at all debilitating.
You made me go look it up, first results from google:
100-400 billion stars in the galaxy (Source)
4,000-10,000 white blood cells per microliter of blood (Source)
~5 liters blood per human (Source)
That's 5,000,000 microliters per human for a count of 20-50 billion white blood cells per human.
So no, there are more stars in the milky way than white blood cells in humans, but only by a factor of 10.
It's difficult but possible (by supplements). It's fat soluble so it isn't peed out. The real problem is you soak up too much calcium.
The average glass of orange juice has about 50mg of vitamin C.
And the upper daily limit is around 2,000mg.
And you can take a significantly larger dose, but at higher concentrations absorption decreases significantly.
Drinking a glass of juice is NOT the same thing.
Don't just spout shit with nothing to back it up man.
Because it fits the definition:

Tension headaches, despite the name, have little to do with muscle tension. It's a misnomer.

Details from The Mayo Clinic website.
Well actually, you are spreading anti-choice propaganda. Most abortions are aspiration or medical abortions and there is no increased risk of ectopic pregnancy or difficulty of an embryo attaching in the future.
Here is an article where this doctor explains what issues may arise and that there is no increased risk. If the pregnancy would go to a live birth it causes the same risk of those issues as does an abortion.
Here is the Mayo Clinic saying basically the same thing.
Anti-choice people used to spread a myth that abortion led to an increased risk in breast cancer. As soon as science very clearly proved no link between those two this rumor that abortion leads to infertility started. Abortion is safer than pregnancy- so anti-choicers have to start these rumors to make abortion look bad.
On the other end of the spectrum,
My mom started having terrible head pressure, couldn't walk properly, and was losing motor function. She was in and out of appointments for around 2 years trying to prove her case that it was caused by a chiari malformation, being told by multiple neurologists that everything was in her head and it was severe anxiety.
Through PURE LUCK she bumped into a neurologist who decided to actually investigate, and guess what? She has chiari malformation. Within a month she had fucking brain surgery, and you know what? Nobody that denied her the basic service of just listening ever apologized or acknowledged what happened.
So I can understand why some people don't trust doctors. In the OP's case, yeah it's ridiculous, but there are cases where patients are neglected.
Sorry for the rant
I know Dr Sam Bunting has said that azelaic acid is safe for use during pregnancy and that she's recommended that to her patients who are expecting. Topical niacinamide and sodium ascorbyl phosphate might be pregnancy-safe, as well, and those do have some evidence demonstrating that they reduce sebum overproduction. You may want to run those by your doctor and see if he/she is okay with them.
According to Mayo Clinic, benzoyl peroxide is unknown, and they seem to recommend topical antibiotics. 
Vitamin A and its derivatives (retinoids, retinol, retinaldehyde, * retinoate) are almost always a "no", and the concern with salicylic acid is that there is similarity between it and aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid).
Waking up patients during brain surgery is actually done on purpose sometimes. I am sure it's not the most pleasant experience, but sounds better than ending up brain damaged.
This gave me pause: "stopping daily aspirin therapy can have a rebound effect that may increase your risk of heart attack."
This is a nice idea, but it can be anecdotally disproven by real life examples. Many celebrities, who have every basic need met, have friends and family, extensive community ties, and every reason for high self esteem, suffer from depression or commit suicide. Depression is an illness. The level of needs you have met, how successful you are, the strength of your social ties, don't necessarily have any impact. In the Western world, even when we don't get a gold star for every level of the hierarchy, we still live lives that are orders of magnitude better than the rest of the world--if we have food, shelter, entertainment, opportunities (and time) to build social bonds and pursue self actualization, how could we ever be depressed? (MHoN also seems like a Western, atomistic scale that might not readily transfer to other parts of the world where self perception and societies are built on very different ground). Any cursory search of depression on the internet will show you that income, success, friends, etc, are not a bulwark against depression. Idk/idc if Saitama's depressed or not, but you should know a bit more about depression.
Tl;dr--Clinical depression isn't affected by how high you've climbed MHoN. It's an illness.
Jic you're interested, here's Mayo Clinic's entry on depression (there's a lot of shit info out there. Mayo Clinic is one of the most respected medical institutions in the world. They're a reputable source)
Not even a real thing.
My complex is also “dog-friendly”, and although they say they have breed restrictions, every other dog seems to be a pit “mix”.
If you ask someone if they have pets, you can usually figure out if they’re a doggy nut or not. I usually get answers like, “no pets aren’t my thing”, “no but I really really want a [specific dog breed]”, or “yes I ruined my life with a puppy”.
It's highly ineffective and doesn't prevent the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. PLEASE use a condom.
Here's some information about it from the Mayo Clinic. Note that Mayo stresses its use for creating intended pregnancies, and recommends against its use as birth control. PLEASE use a condom.

It sounds like you more likely have basic winter blues or at worst Seasonal Affective Disorder (Mayo Clinic explains). Which, SURPRISE is treatable with pharmaceuticals! And also phototherapy, so yes maybe YOU feel better by getting out in the sunshine. But you’re being as useless as the author and/or poster of meme.
People with clinical depression need medical intervention. They have a chemical imbalance that can be righted through chemistry. This is literally life or death.
You, much like the poster of the meme, don’t seem to understand that doing an Activity—like seeing how hungry people in poverty are or seeing people dying—isn’t going to magically fix someone’s brain chemistry imbalance. Get off your high horse.
Untrained. If you're not trained in CPR, then provide hands-only CPR. That means uninterrupted chest compressions of 100 to 120 a minute until paramedics arrive. You don't need to try rescue breathing.
Trained and ready to go. If you're well-trained and confident in your ability, check to see if there is a pulse and breathing. If there is no breathing or a pulse within 10 seconds, begin chest compressions. Start CPR with 30 chest compressions before giving two rescue breaths.
Trained but rusty. If you've previously received CPR training but you're not confident in your abilities, then just do chest compressions at a rate of 100 to 120 a minute.
Looks like hidradenitis suppurativa and it's a real bitch. I don't have it but others on this sub do. It's a poorly-understood chronic condition that's hard to treat.
For your friend's sake I hope it's not that, but if it is, there's a whole subreddit for people who are dealing with it (/r/hidradenitis if I remember right).
Some researchers think prebiotics are more beneficial than probiotics, but last I heard the research was still fairly preliminary.
Actually yes. If you go into a doctors office and say "I'm having trouble getting an erection" the doctor will examine your penis and testicles to check for loss of sensation or nerve issues.
Followed by a blood test and a blood pressure test. Potentially a urinalysis and even an ultrasound to get a visual picture of the blood flow around your penis.
The doctor will also ask you a battery of questions about possible psychological questions to see if there are other causes to your ED that could be treated without drugs.
Why do you think it is unusual for a doctor to physically examine the body part that is having issues?
It is exceedingly rare for amniocentesis to yield a false positive. It apparently has over 99% accuracy specifically for Down Syndrome and I believe Trisomy 18 as well. Amnio is a diagnostic test used if a DNA screen shows up positive (more likely to have a false positive). It doesn't have to be done, but most people want to know if they are going to have a baby with either one of these conditions.
Sources and some education about amniocentesis:
And about screening and diagnosing down syndrome:
Your recommendation regarding getting pregnant after the pill is not correct at all. There is no risk to trying immediately after stopping birth control. Some doctors may recommend waiting until after you get your first real period again, so that it is easier to date the pregnancy (you may not have a super accurate date until your first ultrasound, if this happens), and it may also take a couple months to get back into your normal rhythm, but there's no real risk to getting pregnant right off the pill.
To put this in perspective: Stomach acid is mainly hydrochloric acid, so hydrochloric acid is always present in your stomach, and you get some in your mouth whenever you vomit and maybe also if you experience heartburn or acid reflux.
They're also referred to as a Plantar Wart I had one once that was about the size of a dime and walking on it hurts a lot. I had no idea that swimmers got them. Would explain how I got mine. When I was a kid I used to be on youth swim team in my area. The reason they hurt is the are semi-spherical in shape and when you stand on one it pushes up into the foot. Usually the doctor will give you a local and then cut it out with a scalpel, pack it and then cover it and over time healthy cells fill in the hole. Now laser surgery is used for a removal as the healing is much more painless. Those are the quickest way to get rid of them. There's a surgery-less way, which is how I got rid of mine. I bought some vitamin E gelcaps, I'd poke a hole in the pill and squeeze the pill liquid onto the wart and massage it into the skin. This went on for about a month and during that time it kept getting smaller and turned brown. then one day I was changing the bandaid in the bath and when I took it off the wart stuck to the pad and came out.
I had another one on my middle finger once. But since it didn't hurt I just ignored it and it went away, but only after a really long time.
If you also have problems with anger/rage, you may be dealing with something like borderline personality disorder. You might do some light reading into that and similar mental health issues. [link]
Pete Davidson the comedian from SNL went public recently with his diagnosis of borderline personality disorder, so you can read up on that. [link]
(BTW I am not a psychiatrist)
Based on this [link]
Slurred speech or mumbling
Slow, shallow breathing
Clumsiness or lack of coordination
Drowsiness or very low energy
Confusion or memory loss
Loss of consciousness
Bright red, cold skin (in infants)
bold is what I see the homeless with everyday, it is going to be exceptionally hard to determine if some homeless person his suffering from hypothermia.
That's not really true. Achilles injuries can be freak accidents, but are very often the result of increased stress over time.
>Ruptures often are caused by a sudden increase in the stress on your Achilles tendon. Common examples include:
>* Increasing the intensity of sports participation, especially in sports that involve jumping
>Factors that may increase your risk of Achilles tendon rupture include:
> * Age. The peak age for Achilles tendon rupture is 30 to 40.
It's not all that surprising that a basketball player in their upper 30's playing a huge amount of minutes would get an achillea injury, that's a fairly predictable outcome, and while unlucky, not really a freak accident.
No. It's an attempt at keeping things orderly in a small apartment. I don't think keeping cleaning supplies like mops and brooms that don't fit under a sink is "hoarding".
Here's some help with your continued education:
Part of dieting is just being hungry, kind of unavoidable if you're at a high deficit. I wouldn't recommend going over the RDA ([link]) but caffeine is a proven appetite suppressant. You'll also be extra hungry for a while if you recently started a new exercise routine. Take a multivitamin, please..that diet isn't sustainable or healthy, but I get it..
There are risk factors that make it more likely to happen, so avoid them. They're not healthy habits anyway. [link]
Also check the link for the symptoms of an unruptured aneurysm, leaking aneurysm and ruptured aneurysm. They are pretty severe symptoms that would likely make you think you should go to the ER anyway, which is where you should go if you suspect an aneurysm.
let me give you and example - I've been a son-lover all my life. I have lots of melanin in my skin, so sun never bothered me. If I got too much sun on a partuclar day, I'd be red that night, but brown and tanned by the next day.
So never did I use any form of sun protection.
Suddenly I started getting dry flaky skin, especially on the more sensitive skin areas. This would continue for weeks after I had spent some time in the sun. Flaky skin, severe itch, which would lead to sores because of scratching etc. etc.
Turns out I had developed an alergy which resulted in excema, one of the things that can trigger an excema 'attack' is the sun.
So is the sun a problem? Not really, my allergy is. After being tested it turns out I had developed an allergy for eggs (weird I know) - so now I avoid eggs, but I can still hang out in the sun.
So go see your doc, you can tell him about the vaping, but also tell him that you've been vaping for a few years, and this only started recently
From this link it can be cause by many things (none of which is vaping btw - although vaping can probably make it worse)
>Other health conditions. Dry mouth can be due to certain health conditions, such as diabetes, stroke, yeast infection (thrush) in your mouth or Alzheimer's disease, or due to autoimmune diseases, such as Sjogren's syndrome or HIV/AIDS. Snoring and breathing with your mouth open also can contribute to dry mouth.
So dude, stop fucking around and just go see your doc
STDs being more common in uncircumcised men is more of a problem in Africa where access to condoms is not as prevalent.

Also, a quote from the same source:
>The risks of not being circumcised, however, are not only rare, but avoidable with proper care of the penis.
Thank you for subscribing to Random Factoid!
Did you know that (Hypospadias)[[link]] is a birth defect in which the opening of the urethra is on the underside of the penis instead of at the tip?
Sometimes, (hair-bearing urethral grafts have been used inadvertently in the treatment of hypospadias)[[link]] which can lead to hair growing inside the urethra.
yeah you left out this part:
"However, the AAP doesn't recommend routine circumcision for all male newborns. "
"The most common complications associated with circumcision are bleeding and infection. Side effects related to anesthesia are possible as well.
Rarely, circumcision might result in foreskin problems. For example:
The foreskin might be cut too short or too long
The foreskin might fail to heal properly
The remaining foreskin might reattach to the end of the penis, requiring minor surgical repair"
I agree with you 100%.
It's also worth noting that this is the time when SAD starts to kick in.
I had it really bad last year, and didn't realize it until it was too late. I take a Vit. D supplement every morning now - after the 4th or 5th day of doing so, I felt incredible. My mood was regulated, I had energy, anxiety was mitigated, etc.
By no means am I trying to conflate depression with SAD, but it never hurts to rule it out.
??? apparently can happen in squirrels too.
**EDIT: TL;DR it's a parasite found in mice that make them super friendly (less fearful) of cats. The cats eat the mouse and the parasite infect the cat. Cat feces is where it breeds. Mice... somehow get into the feces? The cycle continues.
Having difficulty peeing due to an enlarged prostate. Not cancer, just something that happens to men with age.
Basically the prostate gland enlarges as you get older, and it acts like a clamp on a garden hose: it slows things to a trickle. And that garden hose is your urethra.
So imagine that you have to pee really bad, but when you try to go, nothing comes out. When it does get started, maybe it stops and starts. And you may not be able to empty your bladder, so only some of the pressure is relieved, and you have to go back 15 minutes later.
This tends to happen to men who are 50+, and thankfully there are some non-surgical treatments that work by relaxing some muscles. But some men have to get a surgery where they go in and kind of roto-rooter out some more space.
And of course, women can't experience this because of the complete lack of a prostate gland.
Probably not your issue, but gynecomastia is a swelling of male breast tissue that can be caused by medications or other medical problems, so it might be worth talking to your doctor about.
As a side note (since this seems to always get brought up with depression), one of the major reasons Robin Williams committed suicide is that he had a rare form of dementia called Lewy Body Dementia.
What that really is is some variation of plantar fasciitis or at the very least an issue with the plantar connective tissue on your arch.
