    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.

    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?

    I'm 19.I've been experiencing headaches/Migraines for 6 years. Brain CT came back clear but my migraines pain is increasing. ?

    Hi, I'm 19 years old and I've been experiencing headaches/Migraines for 6 years. The doctors said it was school stress but I matriculated in 2019 and haven't had any stress related problems. I did a Brain CT and it came back clear. The Doctors gave me Amitriptyline HCI 10mg, Ibuprofen 200mg and Adco Napamol for the pain. I'm still getting these headaches and the pain is increasing everytime I get them. I also am Nauseous, can't focus and sometimes the pain is too strong that I can't sleep most times.

    Why am I getting pain from a wrist break 9 years ago?

    9 years ago I broke my wrist and it healed in 6 months or so. So far this year I'm getting pain in the same spot from just rotating my wrist towards myself. I also can't really do push ups or yoga because it hurts while doing it.

    After having the Covid Vaccine how did u feel after a few hours ?

    Favourite answer:

    Yes.  It has been VERY well publicized that people tend to have a wide variety of side-effects/symptoms including fever, body aches, head ache, arm soreness, extreme fatigue, and every single other OCIVD_19 symptom.  These usually resolve in 48-hours of getting the injection.

    Sudden lower back pain?

    Favourite answer:

    I sure couldn't give a better diagnosis than your private doctor.  I would think he would have x-rayed your back to see if there was a disk problem.  It sounds more like a muscle strain than a damaged or herniated disk.  Your back is very important.  It would be worth the money to see a specialist, take and MRI, and be certain that there is not a serious injury before doing various activities.  The specialist can also give advice about exercises to strengthen the back.  I have found Yoga exercises to be a back saver.  This is only if you haven't injured your back.  There are alot of muscles pulling on your spine.  Flexible muscles is the key to a flexible spine.  "You are as old as your spine is flexible" is a yoga adage.  Richard Hitleman's 28-day Yoga Exercise Plan is a great way to begin Yoga.

    CBD Oil should i use it?

    Favourite answer:

    A lot of CBD oil also has THC in it. Which you obviously need to stay the heck away from! You need CBD that's got either no THC, or so extremely little THC that it doesn't do anything, and it's impossible to notice it! That is, if you even risk trying it, at ALL.

    I totally get wanting to get off opiates. Those can be extremely addictive, and harmful, in their own right! However, speaking as someone who knows an extreme THC addict, and also knows other people that are struggling with more minor levels of THC addiction..? (A lot of them are in denial. It is often like that, I find.) I know in cases of extreme THC addiction, just having something that's from the same plant COULD be triggering! Perhaps not for everyone. But I know of rehabs where CBD is not allowed, 100% for that reason! And my extremely THC addicted friend..? Was going to try CBD oil for their anxiety, after having been off THC for a few months. Then heavily relapsed, because when they went out to buy CBD..? They decided: "oh, I'll just get one that has some amount of THC in it! No harm in that, right?" (100% the addict part of their brain, making up excuses.) Then did that, and got SUPER triggered, and went off and bought lots of super strong cannabis oil! And chugged a whole month's supply, in one sitting! Then got sent off to detox, and has been struggling WAY more to stay sober, ever since. So.. sh*t could be triggering for some people, even if it doesn't have THC! And if it does have THC, in addition to the CBD..? Holy crap, do not touch it, or you are asking for trouble! I rest my case.

    I'm not an addict, myself. Never have been. But let's just say, after getting to know certain people, and certain stories..? I have realized, it is indeed HECKA freaking possible to be EXTREMELY addicted to weed! And what more? I think due to cannabis culture being the way it is, and making up excuses for why it is okay to smoke all day, every day, 24/7? Most weed addicts are in some SERIOUS f*cking denial about their addiction! And it's f*cking ridiculous! At least with alcoholism, people tend to be more honest about it! No one is saying: "oh, you can just drink all day, and you're still not at ALL an addict, no!" I rest my case. F*ck cannabis culture, for being so extremely reckless and in denial about this sh*t! And yes... I would be very, VERY careful, if I were you! Preferably discuss it with your doctor first. Although like I said, I totally get wanting to come off opiates! You should discuss that, too. And what your options are.
