    I got a charley horse on my leg 4 days ago while I was at the movies. I was in excrutiating pain on the floor for 10 whole minutes. While I was there I put my leg up and I massaged my calf area. After about 10 minutes I was able to stand up. However, as of right now, my calf area still hurts badly, I can't straighten my leg, and I can't even bend it. It hurts extremely badly when I stand on my tippy toes. I feel like it's not getting any better and I might go to a doctor if this pain doesn't go away in a few more days. How can I get rid of the pain?

  • Why does my toe hurt so much?

    About a year ago I had an ingrown nail so I went to the doctor to have it surgically removed.

    About a year ago I had an ingrown nail so I went to the doctor to have it surgically removed. The doctor removed it and even cauterized the side of my toe so my nail wouldn't be able to grow anymore. However, about 2 weeks ago I started to feel pain in my toe again and today I woke up with an unbearable pain. I thought maybe my nail grew again for some reason and I checked but the side of my toe/nail is still cauterized, my nail hasn't grown, and I'm not able to remove the cauterization to check inside so I don't see how it can be another ingrown nail since I had it cauterized...What I did notice is that my nail is a little bit red but I don't see any puss or anything. What could be causing this pain?

  • How to remove fleas, flea eggs, and flea scabs off a cat?

    My cat has fleas, flea eggs, and flea scabs all throughout her body. It's pretty bad, especially around her tail. She is always licking and scratching herself and can't sleep sometimes due to this. She doesn't seem to be in pain, she's just very annoyed about the fleas.

    My cat has fleas, flea eggs, and flea scabs all throughout her body. It's pretty bad, especially around her tail. She is always licking and scratching herself and can't sleep sometimes due to this. She doesn't seem to be in pain, she's just very annoyed about the fleas. When I give her a bath I use this flea remover shampoo called ADAMS and I also use the ADAMS flea and tick remover spray. It helps a lot when it comes to getting rid of fleas but I still can't get rid of the eggs and the scabs. Sometimes I use my own hand and I try to remove the eggs but I know its a lot of pain for my cat so I don't want to do that anymore. If there are some things you should know is that I CANNOT afford taking her to the vet, so that is not an option for me, she is an outdoor cat, she is 10 years old, and she doesn't have allergies or any other disease.

They told me "Your mom is so beautiful!! I think she is the prettiest woman in the room" And then someone else asked if the guy with her was my dad and I said yeah and when I said this they started giggling among each other. My friend looked at me and looked at my mom and said I looked nothing like her and I said "I know." Then this peer of mine said "Your brother is so dang handsome too!" And then my friend said "That's because he looks like his mom!" And then my friend said I looked exactly like my dad and laughed. And after she said this everybody around us started laughing :( I asked them what was so funny and they just said they now knew who I got my face from :( I almost cried when they said this. My mom is a short, skinny woman with sandy blonde hair and big green eyes. My dad is an extremely tall, obese guy who is almost bald, is super serious, and has small brown eyes. I am also extremely tall and overweight, I have black hair, brown eyes, and I wear glasses. My brother is tall, skinny, and has these beautiful honey color eyes. I am also very shy (because I suffer from social anxiety, depression, PTSD, and OCD) and my brother is extremely outgoing. Btw this is not the first time I hear this. Everybody makes fun of me for looking like my dad. I'm starting to believe I'm actually ugly.

    Lately my life has been falling apart and I have become extremely depressed. I have been reading self help books and articles online and they all say that finding a hobby and pursuing it is a very good way to feel better. My hobbies are baking, dancing, acting, and doing volunteer work, but I cannot afford doing these things. I don't have money to buy the baking ingredients, I don't have the money to pay my acting and/or dancing classes, and I don't have the time to do volunteer work because I go to college and I'm busy on the week days and weekends studying or doing homework. In my free time I do some other things I enjoy doing but they doesn't feel the same since they are not the hobbies I want to pursue. I am not allowed to get a job because my parents won't let me (They want me to focus in school and I was not able to convince them), I don't have any friends or family members that can help me, and there doesn't seem to be any places where I can do my hobbies for free. I feel like 'm stuck in between two walls unable to move. What should I do?

    I dreamt that I was in the supermarket getting some things. Suddenly, as I was getting some stuff I heard a baby crying and a mother asking him to shut up. I turned around and I saw the mom throwing the baby in the cart and she quickly ran away abandoning the baby. As I was walking over to the cart to make sure the baby was okay, the whole group of people that was around me stated pushing me out of the way and they started to fight for the baby. They were like "No it's mine!" "No, I will take him!" "I want him!" I just stood there helplessly not knowing what to do. Then I started seeing people from different backgrounds getting the baby. First an African American woman grabbed the baby and ran with him, then an Asian woman came and took it away from her, then it was a Mexican man and woman, then a Muslim started running with the baby in her arms, and as each person grabbed the baby, he changed. He became Asian, White, Mexican Black, etc. When I couldn't take it anymore, I grabbed the baby in my arms and I ran with him, people chasing me. I ran and ran to save him from those people until I got tired and then I woke up. Real Facts about me: I am studying to become a teacher, I love children, I don't want kids in real life. What does this dream mean???

I feel like I can't stop thinking about what I did 2 years ago and about what happened to me during that time. The flashbacks keep coming back, even if I'm super busy in class or doing homework. I feel like its uncontrollable now. I also keep getting dreams about that experience I went through. Its really haunting me and I feel like its affecting my daily life now. It has been 2 or 3 years and I have never experienced this before. I cannot afford going to a psychologist and there are no support groups in my area I can go to. I also tried joining those support groups online but they are not helping. What can I do to stop these dreams and flashbacks?

My meals include 2 eggs in the morning, meat with vegetables in the afternoon, and a fruit salad at night. In the afternoon I do about 30 minutes of intense workouts like push ups, jumping jacks, stairs, abdominals, etc. and then in the evening at around 6:00 PM I go out for a walk for about an hour. I only drink water and green tea and sometimes decaf coffee. Will I be able to lose weight if I continue this routine everyday or should I step up my game? Does anybody have any tips? I would really appreciate it.

    I went on a vacation for 4 days and since I don't have any friends or family to take care of my cat nor I had the money to hire a pet sitter I left my cat alone for the four days at my house. I made sure to leave enough water and food for her. Before leaving, she noticed that my family and I were going away because she wouldn't stop following us and she looked very sad. This happened the day we were leaving. I came back yesterday afternoon and I saw that she barely touched her food but drank almost all of the water bowls I left for her. However, I noticed that her bowls of water had ants (Black small ants) and I also noticed that she had ants in her fur. When I tried calling her name she would run away from me and my family. The day we came back the only thing she did was hide under the sofa. Today she finally came out and she has been a little bit more affectionate towards us. However, she's still not eating properly. As a treat we always give her tuna and she immediately comes running out and eating it but today that we tried giving her tuna she only smelled it but didn't eat it. We have tried this multiple times but she refuses to eat. She is also not eating her dry food but she is drinking water. Could she be depressed? Also, we just started remodeling the house today and everything is getting moved around. Could this be another reason why she is acting like this?

    So I am about to start college in August. I am going to go to a community college and I am very scared. I got bullied all throughout high school because of my appearance and because I was considered an "outcast" just because I didn't go to parties, or drank, or did drugs, or had s**. People always tell me that in order to fit in I have to act like most people but I know that drinking, getting wasted, or losing my virginity with any guy is not me. I like to be myself but this seems to be bad at my school. A friend of mine who is in college (She is a freshman) told me that people are more mature since they are paying for their education and have to make the most of it. I'm just scared that I will not find any friends in college. I didn't have any friends in high school. Also, nobody knows this but I suffer from a social anxiety and depression so it is VERY hard for me to make friends, go to parties, or talk to people, even my teachers. Also, my parents suffer from an economic situation and we don't have as many luxuries as my other classmates do which is why they also bullied me. I will never be able to invite my friends over to my "house" or give them a ride since I don't drive and I don't even have a car. These past 4 years my self esteem and my confidence have gone down a lot because of these issues. People keep telling me I will find friends but if I have never had a best friend in elementary, middle, or high school I don't see how I would get one now. Anybody got some tips

    This started today after getting out of the movie theater with my friends. It was about 3:30 PM. I started to feel dizzy and weak and my head and stomsch were hurting badly. When we went out for lunch I felt nauseous (I had eaten a lot at the movies so I was super full) but in order to please my friends I ate half of what I ordered. When I got home I felt like I was going to pass out. I lied down on my bed and immediately fell asleep. Now I have a horrible headache/migraine worse than before and a sore throat that hurts extremely bad. I cannot even talk or chew or swallow without it hurting. Some things you should know: Lately I have been under a lot of stress, I had a lot of food at the movie theater, I got bitten by a mosquito just yesterday, and yesterday night I went out for a walk and it was windy but I wasnt cold or anything. I don't think it is a normal cold, this has never happened to me, and now I can't even walk properly because of how dizzy weak and tired I feel. Could this be because of any of the reasons listen above or could it just be a cold?

There was this time when I checked his Twitter for about 3 months and then he posted a comment saying "I know you're stalking my Twitter and my photos, b****. You gotta stop" I immediately stopped checking his account for a whole year. At school I don't talk to him AT ALL but sometimes I smile at him and he doesn't smile back and I'm just scared that he found out it was me stalking his account. I don't have a Twitter account so I do it all anonymously without signing in. Right now I really want to check his Twitter again but I'm scared he is going to find out. Could that comment have been a coincidence and does he not smile just because he doesn't know me or do you think he found out about me checking his Twitter account?

It's funny how one picture scared me bad but we all have our fears and things that scare us. Maybe it will help me to know more about the picture like is it real or fake? Is that a real dog? If you could give me info about that picture it will help me feel better or how can I get this picture off my head? And please don't say go to a psychologist because I have and they don't help.

    A few days ago my stomach started hurting really bad after I ate a lot of fast food. I had a burger, french fries, and 2 shakes. I remember feeling very full up to the point where I could not breathe. (I didn't eat the day before so I was extremely hungry). My stomach has been hurting bad ever since. However, 3 days ago I got my period and I had horrible menstrual cramps. I took this medication called Midol Complete and it helped relieve the pain. However, the next day I got diarrhea that only lasted a few hours and as the days passed the pain started getting worse. This is what I feel when I have the pains: I feel a lot of gas in my stomach and every time I squeeze the bottom part of my stomach it hurts bad. My stomach growls a lot and I get horrible pelvic cramps whenever the stomach pain comes. I am not pregnant. I have never had sex before so I know this is not a reason. The pain gets worse when I lie down on my bed. I've tried multiple positions but the pain is still there no matter how I try to sleep. I haven't slept in 2 nights because of this and I don't know what to do anymore. I don't want to go to the doctor because I am scared the doc is not going to believe me or something and it would just be money gone to waste. Could this pain be because of how much I ate that day or because I am on my period or could it be something else? Things you should know: I am 17 years old, I am 5'7, and I weight 170 pounds. Oh and I've taken medicines like peptobismol and naproxen.
