    Rolled my ankle and heard a loud pop, felt really nauseous afterwards. Should I go to the hospital?

    I was in a hurry, so I stood up while my leg was asleep and ended up rolling my ankle really badly. There was a loud pop or crack when it happened, and it hurt immediately. Still does. It didn't immediately swell up or bruise, but I got super nauseous afterwards and thought I was going to be sick, and it took me a minute to feel like I could move from the spot on the ground, beyond just because of the pain because of how sick and dizzy I felt suddenly. 

    Should I go to the hospital? What should I do?

    What is the reason medical providers and hospitals list your race on your records?

    Favourite answer:

    You may not be aware, but different ethnic groups are subject to different health problems. Your doctors really need to know if you look white but have significant, say, African (northern or sub-Saharan) or Mediterranean or Asian ancestry.

    And Native American/Amerindian matters, too.Yes, oddly, it has been found that some medications work better in some groups than in others.  That's not widely true so far, but as more testing is done, it may be found that more drugs have that effect.

    My mom hasn’t had a bowel movement and needs help?

    My mom has diverticulitis. She contacted her doctor and her doc won’t see her for another 5 days. She hasn’t had a bowel movement in 4 days and is in pain. She’s tried fiber and OTC meds and even pressure points. Nothing is working and she can’t wait 5 more days. Does anyone have any recommendations that would help?

    *Note: if it gets too bad, I will be taking here to urgent care because her doctor is not helping. I’m just hoping to get her some relief today.

    How do I get my Dad not to hurt me anymore?

    Favourite answer:

    Pray about it.  Ask Jesus to save you and help you.  Read the New Testament.  Start with the Gospel of John.  There are answers to life's problems in the Bible.  Pray for your father to get saved.  Pray that God will change him.  I will pray for you too.  Look up Philippians 4:6-8.  If you are over 18, find a way to move out if it's unbearable.  Go to a shelter if you have to.    If not 18 yet  but old enough to work, save your money so that you will be ready to move when you turn 18. 

    You have a Father in heaven who loves you. 

    Your father was probably badly treated as a child and it made him that way.  He thinks it's normal behavior.

    (GORY OPEN WOUND) WARNING DO NOT OPEN IF SCREAMISH!) Huge cut on my arm, will it heal? ?

    Favourite answer:

    It’s too old to suture like that. Sometimes they can be re cut and sutured. Yes, it will heal, it’s called secondary intention, and it will take time.

    How often do nurses change their uniform in hospital ?

    Hi,

    If you work as a nurse in a private hospital especially, do you wear the same uniform everyday but wash regularly or does the hospital order and give you new ones? And if so, how often is this?

    Are my Covid vaccine symptoms bad enough to go to the hospital?

    I deal with chronic inflammation problems and the J&J vaccine has made it to where I can’t sit down, lay down, walk, go to the bathroom, or move at all without pain all over my major muscles and every joint. I didn’t know most of my body could gave this much pain. It’s also interacting badly with my anxiety meds and giving me awful side effects like brain fog and brain zaps. Should I report this to the CDC, go to the hospital, just wait it out? I’m a college student so I don’t have the money to pay for a hospital trip in my own but I can’t get any work done for my classes since I’m pretty much bedridden from pain in my hips and back.

    Any idea how to stay cool at night?

    I turn into a human heater when I sleep, and I have since I was a teen. At one point my boyfriend couldn't sleep with me in the summer because I was so hot at night. I've tried thin blankets and gel pads that are supposed to keep you cool, but those heat up after a while and become another problem. I wake up covered in sweat, I have fans and air-conditioning going but it doesn't help. I don't tolerate heat well, to the point that I've gotten heat stroke multiple times. Around 74 degrees I get uncomfortable, by 80 my asthma gets really bad, 86 and I have trouble breathing and can enter heat exhaustion easily, and by 90 I can't move and I'm in danger of heat stroke. So being a sweaty and hot mess at night isn't ideal. Does anyone know of products that help cool someone off in their sleep?

    Ears still ringing 4 days after loud exposure?

    I was exposed to a loud sound for a few minutes (chainsaw cutting metal) on Tuesday and my ears are still ringing a bit. I never ran a chain saw before so like an idiot I didn’t use ear protection. Did I cause permanent damage or is it most likely temporary? Thank you!

    what should i do about my health situation?

    I have had a back injury since october of 2019 that i got at work, i wake up one morning and have severe pain in my mid back, i tried everything from pain meds, to heat packs, PT and even a chiropractor, none of them worked, the chiropractor seemed to help a bit but nothing in the long wrong, my pain has only got worse or stayed the same a year and a half later, i dont have an actual doctor but a nurse practioner which is my regular PCP, she has been less then helpful and suggests it will eventually get better even tho it has not, anything that lasts 3 months or longer i heard is considered chronic, my problem is not bones its muscles, back pain is very tricky i hear, my chiropractor suggested i do x rays, ct scans and mris, my PCP is very skeptical of all that saying it is not nessessary, but we did x rays and it showed everything is fine with me, again xrays are for bones not muscles but she says ct scans and mris are very expensive, im even willing to pay 1 or 2 ground out of pocket if i have to at the hospital to do it since she says my insurance may not cover it or its not important enough to her, i really believe the ct scans and mris will show something, i believe my muscles are either dislocated or torn totally, i know something is wrong and its been this way for over a year now, should i just pony up the dough and pay out of pocket? i have medicaid but that is all

    When to go to the e.r?

    I've been having slightly bloody stools for a month. Less than a week ago it started to become painful and now I get somewhat severe pain for 15 minutes or so at random under my right ribcage. It comes and goes and I was told to see an e.r if it became worse but I don't want to go without a good enough reason and I don't want to walk in there and not have a good enough reason. What do I do?

    Did anyone else feel really weird after getting the covid vaccine?

    I just got my first dose of the Pfizer vaccine about 9 hours ago. I got it in my left arm. My left arm feels a little sore, as expected, but my right arm feels extremely heavy. It’s like it takes a lot of effort just to lift it. My headache went away with some ibuprofen, but I feel a little “foggy.” My eyelids feel heavy, and I’m a bit groggy and disoriented. I don’t believe I have a fever, and I’m not too achy like I was expecting. I don’t usually feel like this when I’m sober, but I definitely haven’t been drinking. My eyes feel like they’re working extra hard to focus. Did anyone else feel like this?
