Guess who's dick is still numb.
Guess who's dick is still numb.
Texas, that reminds me, one of the guys I was in class with was saying they were offering signing bonuses to EMTs down there. You know if there's any truth to that or what counties might be doing it?
Ok i'll give this thread a shot. Medical fpers, i think i'm suffering from anxiety attacks about my heart. Sometimes when i'm lying in bed, my heart starts feeling... Weird. Like it's beating too hard or struggling. Like this is it, i'm gonna die. It isn't painful at all, but it feels like my neck's arteries are really pronounced and that any second now something's going to happen.
My pulse itself is normal, about 70 maybe, and i feel no pain or anything. It's hard to describe, it's just... Weird.
I'm 18 yrs old, maybe a tad chubby, like baby fat style, and have no history of heart problems. I think the only lifestyle change recently has been less exercise and more sweets and fizzy drinks due to being around exam time where i consume more comfort foods.
Really not sure what to make of this so any advice wouls be appreciated, thanks.
and really just two 12 hour shifts? I've already done that amount on my own time, and some. I thought it was more like 4, 12 hour shifts. I remember I actually got to bump a student off the truck i was on to another truck because i was friends with the medic. In retrospect the guy was grateful later on in the day, because the other truck he got put on responded to some really interesting calls. (Face burn, and a cardiac call (patient died at the scene in a little patch of swamp near the highway, so when we walked into the station it smelled like piss and dick because the student did compressions in the muck).
and yeah helicopters are rough to get on from what i've heard, my friend who was the medic just started working with Herman Life Flight in Houston, he doesn't have any other cert either i think, which raises a few questions of how he got the job. He spent a few years working 911 and working in the ER, so that is probably it.. And a large portion of RTs i've met use to work on the helicopters too, and suggest to go for it because you'll never regret it.
I have a heath issue that started not to long ago actually
I'm a waiter and shit, and have been for almost 2 years, and about oh, two weeks ago, this tiny part on the right side of my back, about the middle goes numb and tingles, I don't know what it is, Im not worried about it but eh, I do want to know whats causing it
any other part of you numb and tingly?
that screams nerves to me
is your spine uneven at all, because scoliosis can cause nerve impingement
have you hurt your back, or experienced some pain at all in the last while?
It's becoming a real problem though. Last night it kept me awake till like 4am.
i have this weird feeling in my knee, like something around there is crawling underneath the skin
i know it's not just some bs nerve thing, cause when i put my hand over it, i really can feel it
what is this black negro magicka
the only hair i have on my body is my pubes, armpits, and legs.
my forearms have barely any and there is ZERO hair on my upper body/ass.
it is kinda scary how hairless my ass is.
what does this mean.
But I made myself not worry about it by exercising more and getting my heart rate up, and taking mental note that my heart seems to be working just fine.
I would seek medical attention if you get any bad pain though, that usually means something isn't right
How would you tell if you have a dented chest?
Right between my ribs and at the very top, I have a very shallow divot close to an inch around. It's barely noticeable, but I want to make sure anyway. Any advice on this?
How do i know when i need to stop smoking? Seriously, i have been coughing up massive amounts of yellow/brown/clear/bloody phelgm. I enjoy smoking but when is a serious sign that i need to quit
I understand that many people enjoy smoking, but medically speaking it is one if the worst habits out there. There isn't necessarily a clear sign you should quit, since the risk of cancer and other respiratory problems increases gradually over time, and the proper time to stop is BEFORE there are noticeable signs. Unfortunately, you are past that point; something is REALLY fucked up. So, yes. Stop smoking, whatever the cost, and see a doctor.
quit smoking before 10 years to significantly reduce your risk of most of the usual suspects
Here's a graph of the relative risk
from it, you can gather that 20 years is about as much smoking as the lungs can reasonably tolerate, and then it pretty much explodes
Also think I broke my toe, kinda, fell over lol.. it's swollen and red and unmovable after 30 minutes
Probably just sprained or something idk
Hey, I have always had this small dip in my chest.
I was always kind of a chubbier kid, and thus always kind of had bitch tits.
I started working out two years ago and lost the weight, I'm 6'1" and 150lbs [~68kg] now, but I noticed i was never really ever able to get rid of the bitch tits. Like I have pretty solid pecs, but there's still a little bit of extra skin or fat around the nipple. And I think it's from the dip in my chest.
Now, that's not the reason I'm concerned but recently I've been having random chest pains on both sides of my chest. They're kind of like a tightness and pretty painful. I'm not sure if it's the dip that's affecting me but I'd like to know if anyone else has had something similar to this? Or knows anything about it.
Goddamn i am not good on my phone
jackald, sounds like good old palpitations that you're experiencing. A bit disconcerting but if you have no other symptoms and your pulse isn't raising then it's probably not too much to worry about!
When chew my jaw occasionally snaps on the left side
What can it be?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panic_attack some of the psychological symptoms match what he said earlier. Again if he wants to know if it truly is anxiety/panic attacks, and not something else he needs to go to the doc.
He never told us straight up if he is under a lot of stress or not, but he did mention how he gained a little bit of weight due to final exams, so he obviously is under or was under some kind of stress.
For a few days now I've occasionally felt a stinging pain to the left of my chest. It's not really inside the heart however. It's kind of in between the inner chest and the heart. It's not really a super-painful sting either, it just kinda pokes in every now and then. It's really more annoying than painful.
I did some research on my own, and I found that it can be some sort of "chest wall pain", which is common in children and teenagers. Being 16, I suppose I apply to that audience.
So I did some digging and found this:
Pretty much sums up all my symptoms and fits my age. It states there's no medication for it. What does Facepunch think?
my left eye recently got way more floaters (not loads, but enough to be irritating) if I ignore them will they go away or should I do something?
Starting to think im lactose intolerant or have IBS. The more fruits I eat the more my stomach starts to hurt and the more diarrhea I get. I also get super gassy too. My diet is typically oatmeal with milk for breakfast, chicken for dinner and a few apples or oranges for a snack later. I typically get the symptoms after that. Anyone else have this problem?
I cant feel my dick and no I wont go to the doctor because he'll touch me where he shouldn't.
i think this is some weird psychological thing
i think that inanimate objects have 'feelings'
i don't REALLY think that, but i still do things based off of this though process
if i go to get a drink and see that one of my barq's root beers is on the shelf by his lonesome, i'll go ahead and put him back in the barq's box because he probably wants to be with his bros.
if i reorganize my entertainment center and see that two things were always next to each other before i cleaned that area out, ill make sure they remain next to each other because they prolly got to know each other pretty well for however long they were there before i cleaned the place out.
i think i started doing this after i first saw toy story.
So I posted in this thread back in October how my kneecap dislocated and moved onto the side of my leg (I was picked up by an ambulance and the kneecap was pushed back using force from like, 3 doctors hghhfhg). Afterwards, I had to sort of limb around on the good leg which caused it to get overstressed a lot. It's been about 4 months and it's goinf relatively fine, except that the good kneecap feels really loose. If I lay down for some time, then move my leg, I can feel how my kneecap moves around and eventually pops into space where it should be. Did I make shit hit the fan by accidentally overstressing the good kneecap?
Hey, I got a cold a week ago. Came with a sore throat and the works. Except I have hearing issues now (Everything sounds a bit higher-pitched) and the cough hasn't gone away. Help?
