    Lump near the meeting of the jaw and throat, moves when pushed side to side, but hurts somewhat.
    My first assumption is swollen lymph node (I have several, and have had them as far back as I can remember)
    I'd assume your guys' guess is as good as mine... (Well, most of you guys, anyways)

    So yeah, I burned my hand the other day, (not a horrible one, just one somewhere between a 3rd and 2nd degree burn) and I applied ice/fruit/peas to it in order for the swelling/pain to go down, which it eventually did.

    However, earlier today I reached into my pocket in order to grab a few bills. I end up ripping a small hole in my hand, because the burned part was loose-ish or something. Should I re bandage my hand (after applying some sort of antibacterial medications) and leave it be, or should I possibly visit a doctor? The hole isn't very big, and it doesn't really hurt (it isn't hurting right now, and hasn't for a few hours), but you know how these things go. Maybe you guys can suggest a type of bandage (like one of those butterfly bandages, which pull two sides together), so that way something like this doesn't happen again, so I don't have to pay $100 dollars for a minor emergency room visit.

    Edited:

    And yeah Justa, that is your lymph node. You might be fighting off some sort of head cold or something, since they only tend to swell up if you have some sort of infection.

    In Shool, my right side in my liver, and upper front/inner right leg begins to sting. My liver stung Once, and I thought It was my appendix. Then I was told I would be on the floor, crying, if that happened. Then a day later, my right leg started stinging, 5 bursts of pain in like 8 minutes or so.
    It doesn't hurt much (except the liver thing) but it pisses me off, and it's freaking me out. I don't want to see the doctor, because I'm afraid I'm gonna go there, they're gonna scan the hell out of me and then I find out that It's just because I'm fat or something.
    I DO have stretch marks, so I Don't know if it's cause I'm a 200 pound 14 year old.
    Reposting, PLEASE HELP. It happened again, been like a month or so. It's scaring me, someone, come on.

    I have a terrible immune system, so bad that if I spend any length of time with a person who has I cold I get it soon after.

    Any ways of fixing this?

    I don't know about the leg stinging, but I guess it's possible it's gallstones.

    I don't know about the leg stinging, but I guess it's possible it's gallstones.
    It says moving around does not make the pain go away. When I shake my stomach by moving my legs, the pain is weakened. That, and I'm 14 so I doubt I have Gallstones.
    Here's more detail:
    After the intial 'Attack' Where I get a stinging sensation, I get waves of heat, ache, and stinging. Not usually at the same time. I think they are varying degrees of the pain. I also feel this vacuum like feeling in my right side sometimes, like being hungry.
    It's never lasted this long. Oh, and sometimes I feel similar symptoms (Though less often) In the opposite side of my body, left side as opposed to right.
    -Edit-
    Gallstone pain can cause vomiting, which may relieve some of the belly (abdominal) pain and pressure. Pain that occurs with a fever, nausea, and vomiting or loss of appetite may be a sign of inflammation or infection of the gallbladder (acute cholecystitis). Symptoms that may mean that a gallstone is blocking the common bile duct include:

    Yellowing of the skin and the white part of the eyes (jaundice).
    Dark urine.
    Light-colored stools.
    A fever and chills.

    I got a chill, but that's because I'm freaking out. I feel naseua, because I'm freaking out. Also, I haven't noticed any darker colored urine.
    I also feel hot, but that could be because I'm Kinda scared. I have Surgery-Phobia, I haven't even had my wisdom teeth removed, let alone a liver transplant or some crap.

    Can I get some Help ASAP? Kinda freakin out.

    Ah, ok.
    I got into contact with one of my steam friends who's a doctor. (WHy didn't I think of this earlier) Anyways, It turns out I'm producing too much glyogen, and it's building up in my liver. It's 'cause I take Melatonin and have asburgurs. So, Nevermind. (I hope that's it)

    I have a feeling that you misunderstand the degrees of burns. In a third degree burn you won't have any nerve endings left in the affected area meaning it won't hurt at all. I imagine if it really is as bad as you claim it was caused by something serious and if you are smart you would have visited the hospital at the time of injury. Can you post a picture of it so I can get a better idea of what the damage is? Also I'm pretty sure an emergency room trip is going to cost you a good bit more than $100 and of course you'll be waiting for ages.

    No, Melatonin is a sleep aid.


    So uh, How long do you guys think it will take for my levels to go down and this to stop? I'm having it again, but I've had no sudden burst of pain like yesterday. Mostly the same symptoms, but they don't seem as bad. Actually it's considerably less painful, I can actually stand it. How long do you think it will take for my amount of glycogen to go down?

    -Edit-
    I'll be going to an actual doctor next time, I just pulled a muscle, nothing more. Lol

    Aspergers is more effects how the brain functions. So no, there isn't really any medication of cure for it. Some medications are supposed to handle it, but they do a really shit job and tend to cause more problems than they fix.

    Ah, my mistake. I meant that it was somewhere between a 1st and 2nd degree burn. Also, my insurance is pretty good, it's about $150 dollars if I have to go to the ER. The rest is paid by the insurance. With that said, my monthly payments are a bit hefty, but I having shitty balance, slight hearing damage, and horrid eyesight, will probably fuck up majorly at some point, as with burning my hand. If I hadn't reacted quickly enough, it would currently be peeling and blistering, and might have gotten infected.

    In either case, my burn finally quit hurting about 5 days ago. The burned part of my hand has become slightly wrinkly, and a little bit of it peeled off. However, I was able to treat it without outside medical help. I assume that it will be like this until it eventually wears off, and will leave a scar for a fair period of time.

    Thank you for replying to my post though, I appreciate it!

    That "wrinkle" might actually be scar tissue but I might be misinterpreting what you mean. If it's not causing you any problems right now I'd just make an appointment with your primary physician to have it checked out. Better safe than sorry, right?

    Sometimes at night, or when I get home from school, my teeth feel like they have moved, and certain teeth on top don't fit in place with the bottoms. I've had perfect teeth all of my life, never had braces. What could this be and what can I do? It may just be my mind, though. My mind plays really odd tricks on me all the time.

    Which is why you just buy enough for two weeks which is like 14 pills
    In Aus you have to show your license and they put you on a database to make sure you're not buying them at every pharmacy.

    They work absolutely wonderful though.

    Recently my left arm has been bothering me a lot.

    The best way to describe it is to say my arm feels tired and weakened all the time even if I'm not using it, and if I put pressure on it or turn it the wrong way / angle, my fingers and hand tingle.

    The fuck is wrong with my arm? It's driving me crazy.

    Canker sores that just keep fucking coming. I'm probably just grinding my teeth on my cheek in my sleep, but I live a non-sexually active (surprise, surprise.) life.

    Is there anything I can do for it? The local Pharmasave doesn't sell cream for it or anything.

    Bi-carb soda, I think, is suppose to reduce swelling for sores in your mouth. My mum uses it for them.
    You just put some on your finger and dab it on. I don't like the taste of it.
    See if that helps?

    on-topic, I have this weird thing where if I stand up and put my arms out to the side and then rotate my torso, I can hear and almost feel extremely shallow breathing. Is this normal?

    I'm pretty sure that a little variation in angle is normal and nothing to worry about, unless it would interfere with you having sex normally.


    Wow, approximately 1 minute after beginning to read this thread I'm some kind of doctor. What the hell happened?

    I have a muscle strain in one side of my back (atleast according to WebMD, it's the only thing I could ask) and it is driving me round the bend. It's manageable when I'm not doing anything, but oh god it hurts to swallow. I need to get rid of it, asap.

    It feels like I'm being stabbed just below my right shoulder blade, and this may seem a bit like a coincidence, but it started the day I started taking doxycycline pills for my acne.
