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.
I've got a weird lump on my hand, should I see my GP in a few days if it doesn't go down? It's not painful unless I touch it, it seams to be in the bone.
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.

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?

Wow, approximately 1 minute after beginning to read this thread I'm some kind of doctor. What the hell happened?
I can feel large veins above my testicles, it doesn't hurt but I'm not sure if this is bad.
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.
My peepee points up when I look at David Craig what is happened do I cancer?

[QUOTE=carcarcargo;32574144]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?[/QUOTE] Some people are gifted with a great immune system, like me, but if you aren't, just eat healthy foods. Stay in shape, exercise (just take a 30 minute walk every day), and generally make healthy choices. Don't be afraid of germs, but don't get too buddy-buddy with the little troublemakers or you'll be sick 24/7. Besides, everyone's sick this time of year, even I'm sick (and the most I get sick is a cold everyone 5-6 months). It's just the time of year.
[QUOTE=ZombieDawgs;32703894]I can feel large veins above my testicles, it doesn't hurt but I'm not sure if this is bad.[/QUOTE] If you're talking about what I think you're talking about then those are not veins, they're tubes that are [I]meant[/I] to be there. I'd post an image but I think typing "Testicles" in on google images could look a bit weird.
[IMG_thumb]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2744683/IMG_20111009_202448.jpg[/IMG_thumb] I think I dislocated my wrist. That bump is bone under the skin. Can anyone confirm my suspicion? It doesn't hurt too bad unless I bend it towards the bump. Dislocating it is reasonable, as I usually put on my extremely heavy backpack with one arm.

It's definitely not. It hurts a lot when I bend it, and it's a ton bigger compared to my left. I'll try to get a pic. [editline]9th October 2011[/editline] There's also slight bruising around it.

I'm not sure. I have a backpack that weighs 40 lbs that I have a tendency to pick up with one arm. It's extremely likely that that could've caused it. [editline]10th October 2011[/editline] I did take some ibuprofen last night. It stopped hurting so I think I'll just ride it out. It was pretty bad yesterday though :S

Just got home from hospital. My kneecap thought it would be a good idea to discolate and move onto the side of my leg. Boy, I've never had such a pain before. So basically, we were at PE and had to do some basic running. Had to run from one end of the area to the other end. While going back again, I had to stop for a second to get breath. As I was going to run again, I solidly plant my right food into the floor in a wrong movement. I fell directly onto the floor on the now discolated kneecap. Arrgghhh. After around 15 minutes, I heard the siren of an ambulance. They backed up near the PE room and came in. Asked for name and CPR number and stuff. They took me to the hospital and put my kneecap back on place. With force. It hurt, probably more than when it actually discolated. Going to go with this funny Donjoy thing that sits tightly around my whole leg. I can right now only bend my leg into a 30 degree angle, then this robot thing stops it. Going to wear it for 6 weeks. Hospital stop every 2 weeks to get checked up and get it loosed. Have any of you ever tried something like this? It looked kind of like this [img]http://www.physioroom.com/images/products/38559_image.jpg[/img] Just a whole lot bigger. Imagine that thing, on the size of your whole leg.
Sometimes when I look at something, it feels like I'm getting too much information. Like when I'm on a bike, at a busy intersection, I get confused really quickly because there are cars going into all directions and then I don't know which ways to look so I don't accidentally hit a car (or the other way around). I cycle to school everyday, and I pass a certain intersection which is sometimes busy and sometimes not, and I still look left and right and still manage to get barely hit by a car. Same when I have to look for something specific in a certain place. Like looking for a can opener in the kitchen. I see lots of stuff like spoons and knives and then I get a little confused or disoriented and can't find the can opener between a few other stuff. Often my sister asks me to get something from the kitchen and I start looking for it and can't find it, then my sister comes and shows it's right in front of me. Could this be something? Honestly I don't want to get a driver's license when I become 18, because it will make me a horrible driver.

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.
