[QUOTE=Faren;35846243]Was skating in a skate park today, fell off the board and hit my elbow (not broken, just knocked and grazed + bleeding). Felt light headed so I went to lie down and just as I did it was like my brain just half shut down and I started getting some really strange visualisations and feelings in my head (apparently my eyes were open and I was convulsing a bit and I hit one of my friends when he came near me (I was lying down)). Felt like I was stuck inside my own mind and I had to force my way out. Worst feeling I have ever felt. An hour and a bit later and everything feels much more physically difficult than usual and I have a little headache. This is not the first time this has happened (maybe 3-4 other times it's happened, all after hitting my elbows/knees) but this was by far the worst. Gonna see a doctor soon. Thoughts?[/QUOTE] You might've hit your head pretty fucking hard.

[QUOTE=zombini;35861598]You might've hit your head pretty fucking hard.[/QUOTE] Definitely didn't hit my head. [editline]8th May 2012[/editline] I asked the people who were there and there's no sign of me having hit my head as far as bruising goes.
I believe I have dyspraxia. Should I visit a doctor?
Yep. No buts or ifs, this is something neurological that needs experts.
Anyone have a good cure for cold/flu? I already tried amputation, it diddn't work. [editline]8th May 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=Faren;35862376]Definitely didn't hit my head.

i keep on getting this weird feeling in my head like it started about year ago, behind my eyes. something like that feeling you get when you stick your finger just in front of that dip in your nose - except this is duller. since then, it's moved to the top-ish of where i guess my brain is, and now i guess it's right in the middle. it's weird, because i know i shouldn't be able to feel anything there - no nerves. but what really weirds me out is the fact that it mostly occurs nowadays whenever i see, hear or think of something distressing. it's not debilitating, but it's a little scary. it does get distracting sometimes, when it pops up, but i guess the questions i want to ask are: 1) is this normal? 2) can i get rid of it?
Feels like I have to piss. Go to bathroom, piss only a little. What do I do?

If a symptom has stayed with you for a year. It's time to seek proper help.

So, I get these little lumps - sometimes they turn into these big bumps, and sometimes they let themselves. Other times they don't and just go away. Well, I've got one around the crack of my ass (Yeah, I know, right?) It hasn't been much of a problem but has been painful, it's been there for about 2 weeks and has been letting for about a week. Until today, the discharge has been purulent. Well, I noticed today via my underwear that the discharge is now this blackish stuff. Is that anything to worry about? An unrelated issue that I've noticed over the past couple of years is that if like, I hold on to something for more than 5 minutes, my hand starts to get this pain. If I hold onto it for around 10 to 15 minutes, rigor starts to set into my hand and it continues being painful. This used to be a problem when I worked a light construction job, using a hammer for more than a few minutes at a time was damn near impossible. Also doing things like cutting the grass and weed eating are kind of tough too. I just kinda push my way through it and rest in the end. Biting the affected area seems to distract me from the pain, but doesn't really help with the rigor. What's up?
[QUOTE=Jarrod;35883099]Punch it.[/QUOTE] This worked. Thank you.
I'm thinking about getting a doctor's appointment for my serious case of fucked up mental state, i get chills all the time, there's the fainting issue i have, sometimes i get massive headaches and i have horrible memory, i could pick up a soda can, and a minute later, forget that i even had it in my hand and spill it everywhere. Too bad i can't afford to see a doc at the moment.
I'm pretty sick and I dont know what's wrong; I don't have a fever, but I feel really weak, I have the chills but I get hot under a blanket, I have a constant cough and my eyes feel kinda drowsy and they water a lot. I also have this full body pain. I've been getting plenty of sleep, and I take two Niquil pills every six hours. whats wrong with me dr facepunch

It could very well just be the flu.
[QUOTE=Benstokes;35896835]How long has this been going on? It could very well just be the flu.[/QUOTE] About 3 days now.
I posted in the sleep thread about this, but might as well get a wider view. I've been sleeping for up for 15 hours a day if I'm not setting an alarm, It's like I just don't wake up when I'm done sleeping. Thoughts?

[QUOTE=GhostProject;35899417]About 3 days now.[/QUOTE] Then I wouldn't worry very much. If it goes on like that too much longer, then sure, see a doctor.
I just noticed that there's a blueish lump in the skin going from thumb to index. It's definitely not a vein and when I stretch my thumb / press down on it, it feels like there's two of them. I'll take a picture tomorrow when I'm awake. Any ideas, FP?
So, I have arthritis and X-linked hypophosphatemia (although the latter might be unrelated). My arthritis has been acting up recently, probably due to allergies (I believe my arthritis is linked to my immune system, like an auto-immune disease or some such). Now, a few days ago, I accidentally rolled over in my sleep and slept on my affected side, the left. Since then, my hip has been hurting MUCH MUCH more than it usually does, and I can barely walk without a odd sort of limp where I bend sideways to put as little amount of pressure as I can on my left leg. I have no idea what's causing it, and it has been going on for ~3 days now. What worries me is that, I know I have been in this position before, IE with more extreme than usual arthritis, but I have no idea how to get rid of it.
I have been getting a sharp pain around my bladder area whenever I fart, piss, or crap.
[QUOTE=samuel2213;35932000]I have been getting a sharp pain around my bladder area whenever I fart, piss, or crap.[/QUOTE] I get it sometimes too. It's mostly air/gas going through your guts. Do you have a problem with gas? If so, cut down on soda and try to eat slower.

Could it have been the curry I had last night? Keep in mind that I regulary have curries every saturday night. And it has never been a problem before

[QUOTE=Thaard;35932314]If it goes away after farting, then it's gas going to your intestines. If not, maybe you need to check your bladder or intestines.[/QUOTE] I will wait for a day or two to see if it clears up. If it doesn't, I will go see a doctor
