  • Growing Pains at 30?

    So I just turned 30, pretty healthy guy - exercise, eat healthy, no major conditions short of an ulcer about 6 months ago. But I have had this weird "sensation"(I guess you would call it?) for as long as I can remember. Every now and then (maybe once or twice every few months?), i will have this shooting "jolts of electricity" shoot down my thighs. It doesn't hurt, (in fact kind of tickles a little?) but when it happens it captures your complete attention. More annoying than....

    Stomach pain and IBS

    Hi, I suffer quite a lot with stomach pains, nausea, dizziness, bloated stomach, etc... My GP recently diagnosed me with IBS but I'm not convinced. I have had my full blood count done 3 months ago and have just had then done again last week and am still waiting results. My symptoms don't match up with those typically associated with IBS. I am a vegetarian, I grow my own food. I eat eggs, cheese, and some fish from time to time. Any suggestions as to what else might be causing me this discomfort....

    Am I experiencing bipolar symptoms?

    I'm not officially diagnosed with having bipolar disorder but after being on an ssri to treat my OCD for about 3 weeks my doctor said I experienced hypomania. I spent more than $300 on unnecessary stuff, tried to take on projects like fixing my car (I was actually successful though) and I was just bouncing around and around. I just got off this medication (Luvox) 3 days ago and I'm having some weird mental things going on. I was wondering if I could possibly get some clarification to see....

    Numbness in genitalia after indulging a predilection

    I'm a 20 year old Male. I have been attempting to quit masturbating. Last night I really cracked and had a masturbation session that was no longer than two hours. During most of this I on and off applied your standard black hair ties around my testicles and penis, and some just on my penis. They would stay on from 5-25 minutes. Maybe slightly longer but not by much and would be off for longer periods than that, but consistently for the session. I would use in excess of 20 or more, almost all....

    Ibuprofen or Aspirin for Philippines wife tours

    I’m flying in a few months to the Philippines and I need to carry an anti-inflammatory medication with me. It’s for the random pain in my right hand. I’m still under therapy for it and when the pain gets intolerable, the only solution is to take pain relievers like ibuprofen and aspirin. I don’t know if the Philippines is strict about selling pills to foreign men. I know it’s an over-the-counter drug but I still want to be sure since I’ll be in a foreign soil. I’ll be bringing about a bottle, small....

    Energy Drinks

    How exactly would 24 oz. of Red Bull affect one’s body if they consume it five days a week for, let’s say, three months? I know it will definitely affect the liver but what other symptoms would it cause? Liver cancer?

    White spots with white pasty contents on penis skin and ballsack (and only there)

    Hello, ever since i got into puberty (i think) and my penis started to do its puberty thing, i have had white spots on the penis skin and ballsack. These are small, *not* swelling the skin like a pimple would, and ejects white pasty-like stuff when squeezed. (So not the typical pimple stuff you get when you squeeze them) They don’t hurt. I don’t have, and never had, anything like this anywhere else on my body. They don’t seem to dissapear after i have squeezed them for what i can, since i have probably....

    Leg soreness immediately after drinking alcohol.

    Four or 5 times now I have had leg soreness come on very soon after drinking alcohol (right about when my body is able to feel any effects of alcohol at all.) I am fairly active cyclist, and this only happens when I have done a significant workout that day or the day before. I don't have this issue when I do not cycle, or when I do an easy or relatively flat ride that day. Only when significant hill climbs or longer rides are involved. I generally don't get sore, unless I drink alcohol, and....
