So I have been recovering from a concussion that happened last week and about mid-week or so I started coughing. This isnt the regular cold cough, this is a heavy-wet cough. I have coughed up yellow mucus. Could it be possible that I contracted pneumonia?
I got that too, I figure it's just springtime bullshit getting itself out of the way. I get it every year.

[QUOTE=PortalGod;35059743]Ok, so, uh, I think I have a rash near my crotch/ass area, though it could just be chafing, I'm not sure. Picture: [url]http://db.tt/BNroq6LC[/url] You can just imagine how bad it is everywhere else. How can I make it go away?[/QUOTE] help

After a car accident, been having severe and sudden chest pains months after. It's been a year and a half now since then and every once in a while I get the feeling of having a knife inside my chest. Dat sudden pain that only lasts a few seconds. It's been bugging me because I was walking with my girlfriend and I almost fell over from the pain. It literally feels like someone poked me with a long needle or something in my chest, then goes away almost instantaneously as it appeared Am I going to die

It's terminal.
I've had heart palpitations for a long time now, borderline arrhythmia but not as extreme. I've never really had an issue with them; just put my hands on the back of my head, deep breaths and sit down and eventually my heart will go back to beating correctly, leaving me with a sharp pain as it returns to normal while the pain subsides. Recently I've noticed that my vision goes kind of red around the edges when this happens, and I'm wondering whether or not it's something to worry about? I'm not exactly broke but I don't want to waste money on a doctor checkup. Facepunch free medical advice pl0x
[QUOTE=MisterSjeiks;35104442]I'm a fucking genius, my dick isn't numb anymore.[/QUOTE] False alarm
Literally the only things I drink are grape juice, orange juice, pineapple juice, apple juice, and chocolate milk. All of it is organic and all that crap, and not the ones that had arsenic in them. Is this bad? Can you have too much juice? EDIT: Also, I have one or two sodas a week, and a fuckton of water on school days, because the water tastes really good there for some reason.
you can OD from Vitamin C. Not sure the amount needed (that's a good question for Google). Vitamin C pills as a dietary supplement have "1000% DRV" of Vitamin C, so just keep track of exactly how much Vit C is in each drink and how much you intake daily. [editline]BIG OLD DICKS IN YOUR BUTT[/editline] [url]http://thevitaminsource.net/can-you-overdose-on-vitamin-c/[/url] has more information than I care to read, second result on a google search. The first few lines talk about the upper limits of what your daily intake should be in terms of grams.
It is comparatively really hard though, seeing as it's highly soluble and any excess is going to be leaving your body fairly rapidly.

I know you can't really afford it, but if you want to live, you need to go see a doctor, now.
that's a bit overdramatic fluke42, we're not trying to scare him!

Vitamin C is fine I take around 1000MG a day you just have to be careful when you stop taking it. I.e. dont stop the average dose you take over night slowly ween yourself off it as you will be more susceptible to catching coughs n colds etc.

Also is your pulse regular or irregular?[/QUOTE] Regular, but then it freaks the fuck out when I have an 'episode'. Anyway, I followed your advice Autumn, made an appointment and told him. He said the red I'm seeing in the edges of my vision are due to my eyes becoming bloodshot, which could mean a) my condition is slowly becoming worse or b) my heart is healed and my current medicine is causing it. I'm going in for it to get looked at next week, so hopefully it isn't too painful :v: So I guess it does pay (no pun) to see your doctor.
So, I got this scar from a knife-stab that happened 11-12 years ago; [t]http://imgur.com/RQvF5.jpg[/t] (Picture and quality ala cellphone) Not a big deal aight? But lately, it's has begun to hurt like hell, and I'm getting worried of what it might be. Any suggestions? Oh, and yes, the knife that did a stab was used to carve ice.
If it's free where you live, doctor, due to the fact that you're probably right handed, thus especially interested in having a 100% functional hand. Of course, it could be something totally minor, but if it's free, just take the 5 mins to book an appointment and get it checked sometime soon.
Tip: Don't drink milk when you have diarrhea, unless you like foam coming out of your butt.
