Has it been getting better at least? The pain? And has the swelling gone down?

Well guys, my hair is pretty much almost gone by TastyTacoTonight in malegrooming

[–]shams3322 7 points8 points  (0 children)

If you plan on keeping your hair, advise just getting basic blood tests done, often it can point to an imbalance. Also can talk to your doctor about Finasteride (prevents further hair loss) or Minoxidil (regrows hair) if it's male pattern baldness.

Can someone interpret these results? My GP says the low platelet could be due to dengue but I didn't have any fever in the last 6 months. What could be the possible reasons? (MALE 27) by [deleted] in medical_advice

[–]shams3322 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Fever from dengue can be unnoticeable at first and often goes unnoticed. But I wonder why your doctor brought that up. Is it common where you live?

My EKG report says i have heart issues but my doctor says im fine ? by [deleted] in AskDocs

[–]shams3322 2 points3 points  (0 children)

A blood pressure of 130/80 is totally normal and is normal variation throughout the day. EKG results can be varied quite significantly if you are anxious during the procedure so that's probably why the machine gave a false positive. Don't see any reason why your doctor would hide something from you.

Maybe talk to someone about health anxiety

should I get a PEP vaccine for Rabies? by codyzz12345 in AskDocs

[–]shams3322 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No way for the virus to enter your body unless there was a bite or contact of a rabid dog's saliva to an open wound

18M graphite isn't poisonous. but after I bit my pencil in the exam I don't feel good by LibrePower in AskDocs

[–]shams3322 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Possibly because you're thinking about it and the bad taste is lingering in your mouth. Floss your teeth. Chew on a gum. Eat something with a strong taste like mint and it should pass.

Ofcourse if the symptoms get worse go to a doctor

This is probably a really common question, sorry. I took a pregnancy test today and the second line is super faded. by admirableroof in AskDocs

The only difference is build quality and sensitivity to hCG meaning the only benefit expensive ones have is that they would give a positive result few days earlier than cheaper ones

I think that means there's a high probability that it's positive. Although take another one tommorow or day after to just confirm.

Wierd pain in lower right abdomen by FredaFreya in AskDocs

[–]shams3322 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Go to your doctor or urgent care! Could be your appendix

Do you have a fever? Has the pain constantly been in the same spot? Did you perform any hard physical activity before this pain appeared?

2000 mg of paracetamol by TheLazer666 in AskDocs

[–]shams3322 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Like another user mentioned, once liver damage sets in from paracetamol, it will cause a slow, painful and miserable death. Please go to the ER, there's an antidote available and you can prevent most if not all potential damage. You can always send me an inbox if you need someone to talk to. Take care man.

Why do my bones crack constantly? by [deleted] in AskDocs

[–]shams3322 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hypermobility syndrome or just general hypermobility can cause tensing up of joints and cracking

Why do my bones crack constantly? by [deleted] in AskDocs

[–]shams3322 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How's your life style (Sedentary/active)? Have you ever noticed to be more flexible than normal?

Consider seeing a rheumatologist or ortho if it keeps on getting worse and causes pain and stiffness. Minor cracking can be normal and be fixed with making diet and activity changes

Gallbladder pain symptoms? by RobertaGee in AskDocs

[–]shams3322 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What dose are you taking? Taking not more than 2 pills of extra strength Tylenol every 6 hours is usually considered safe

Gallbladder pain symptoms? by RobertaGee in AskDocs

[–]shams3322 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yes, those symptoms are very typical of something related to your gall bladder. Gallbladder surgery or cholecystectomy is very common and has a low incidence of any complications. Now as for when and where you need surgery or not, only your doctors can confirm that. In case of a laparoscopic surgery, patients often go back home the same day of surgery and it will take 1-2 weeks to return to your normal activities.

Take an NSAID such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen to help deal with the pain and avoid fatty foods

What does it mean to have both Hep B antigen and antibody? by MrKingdoms in AskDocs

[–]shams3322 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Chronic HepB usually lasts a lifetime and (to my knowledge) no current treatment is available to completely eradicate the virus. Such people are regularly monitored for any signs of liver damage and appropriate treatment is given in case there is.

What does it mean to have both Hep B antigen and antibody? by MrKingdoms in AskDocs

[–]shams3322 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It occurs sometimes in chronic hepatitis. It means their body is producing antibodies against the virus but the virus is tolerant to it.

M33 (5'7", 136lbs) - High post-exercise heart rate by tomeczak in AskDocs

[–]shams3322 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Called Excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC). It is normal after hard cardio or HIIT and can stay in effect for hours after a workout. It is actually the reason why many prefer HIIT as compared to steady state cardio for fat loss.

I wouldn't be too worried unless you consistently have high heart rate for an extended period of time

15M Got a burn while cooking and now my hand looks like a pizza bubble. by azmahmood in AskDocs

[–]shams3322 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Burn blister. It's your body's response to prevent infection. Usually requires no attention and goes away on its own by bursting or absorbing back into the body. If it bursts wash with water and soap. What you need to do is look out if it gets infected or keeps growing in size. Do not burst it as there's a chance of infection.

Odd feelings of being detached from my body by Shypronaut in AskDocs

[–]shams3322 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Sounds like depersonalization which is a type of dissociation disorder. It can very well be related to your depression or anxiety as they are known risk factors.

Recommend going to a psychiatrist and getting a psychiatric evaluation
