Open Question: How your mom can find out that you masturbate?

I just came up with a realization that it is pointless for kids to believe that by being super sneaky, they can conceal their habit of masturbating (to porn) from their parents. How? Well, if you didn't masturbate, you'd get wet dreams. And if your mom does the laundry, she can see this. If your clothes are "clean", it can only mean three things: 1) you sleep in the nude (unlikely) 2) you are asexual (lol) 3) you are masturbating. So really, unless moms are particularly stupid, they certainly will have noticed this and can tell whether their son has begun masturbating, or not. Don't you agree?

Open Question: Is this good if I'm trying to get in shape?

I'm a girl, about to turn 14. I'm a little under 5'1" and usually weigh around 110 lbs. However, I got pretty depressed this summer and gained a lot of weight. Now I'm finally feeling better and I want to lose the weight I gained, plus a little more if possible. I play softball about 5-7 months out of the year (it depends if there's a fall league each year) but my eating habits aren't great. I was thinking I would start jogging (or at least walking and working my way up to jogging). I'm still a teenager, so I like to eat what other kids eat. Today I had some cucumber slices for breakfast with a small glass of milk, a glass of water, a grilled cheese on wheat bread, and some sugar free green tea. I'm going rollerblading later today, too. Am I on the right track? Is there something else I should be doing? Any tips are very much appreciated. Thank you!!!

Open Question: Lack of sleep and increased thirst/dry throat, does lack of sleep cause this?

This week I got a new 1st shift job and I left my 3rd shift job. I haven't been sleeping properly at night because I'm having trouble adjusting. I have only gotten about 2 hours of sleep a night since Sunday, it is now Friday. I have noticed that every day since about Tuesday I have been excessively thirsty and have a dry mouth feeling. I didn't have this before, it just started when I begun lacking sleep. How does lack of sleep cause this? I also have hypothyroidism but it is under control and I know this must be due to sleep deprivation because I didn't have these symptoms last week when my schedule was still "normal" for me. Please let me know what's up? Thanks!

I have really oily skin and it's embarrassing. I hate the feeling of it too. Its just gross and I want it to go away.

Is there anything I can do to get rid of it or at least help??? Thanks so much (:

Open Question: How does burning calories work?

Alright, so I started exercising today to go with my dieting. Now my question is, would a person who is heavier, and doing the same exercising as a person with a lower body weight burn the same amount of calories? I weight 280 lbs, walked on the elliptical machine for 20 minutes (for me just starting, this was alot :-\ ) and according the the machine i burned 165 calories. Now I have 2 theories on this, 1-Since I'm heavier, its sort of like carrying weights while walking, so I should burn more calories. 2-The more muscle a person has, the easier it is to burn fat, so a heavier person without much muscle will burn calories slower. So does anyone else have an opinion or knowledge on this? Thanks :)

Open Question: Why can't i see out the left corner of my left eye?

Earlier, this weekend, I had a brief but sharp pain in the right side of my head that felt like it was pulsing. I believe this was caused by a stressful situation. Shortly after that, I was unable to see out the left corner of my right eye. Two days later, my head started hurting on the right side again whenever I shook my head, nodded my head or bent my head over. I went to a doctor and they say it might be due to sinuses. Could it be anything else?

Open Question: How can I end my life-long constipation?

I'm 18 now and for as long as I can remember, I've always had trouble with bowel movements. When I was about 7 my mom would give me an enema because I wouldn't go, but those would rarely help either. At 13, I had a real bad spell of it. We went to a doctor, he took an X-ray and prescribed some steroids and said if it didn't clear up in 2 weeks, come back. It went away, but ever since then when something happens that makes me nervous, I'll get real bad constipated for a week or two. Even when I'm not nervous, I only manage one good bowel movement a week, but my parents won't take me to the doctor. I'm worried it may be cancer, but it's been like this as long as I can remember... Please HELP! P.S. I'm male if that makes any difference

Open Question: Late bloomer and height questions?

Hi, I know nobody has a forsure answer but I'd like to hear some other peoples stories. Im a 5ft 7 inch male at 17 years old with 4 months until im 18. My whole life iv never been a tall guy and iv NEVER had those growth spurts that all my friends have had, Iv simply grown a inch a year. My question is, is it still possible for me to reach 5 11 or even have a rapid growth spurt? My father is about 5ft 8 1/2 and my mother is about 5 ft 3. BUT my step brother on my fathers side, cousin on mothers side, gradfather and uncle on mothers side all are 6ft + up to 6ft 6 inches. Another thing iv noticed is that my physical traits seem to lack, I have a very kiddish face and sometimes mistaken for being 15, not to much facial hair and a thin frame. The only thing that appears to be developed is my male organs which are about 7 inches. Does this sound like a case of late bloomer or am I simply just a young looking small guy???

Open Question: Why are my boobs so sore?

I noticed last week that my boobs were slightly tender. I thought maybe it was just how I slept or something, so I waited to see if it went away. It's been over a week now, and they are even more sore. My breasts usually get tender a week before I start my period. But, my period isn't due for another 2 weeks. (So, they are tender three weeks before my due period, because they started hurting last week.) Also, usually when they're sore due to an upcoming period, they usually are extremely sore, especially around the nipples. This time they are only sore if I touch them, and they're sore all around the sides. I am NOT pregnant. I am a virgin. What could this be? Could it be the way I sleep? I NEVER sleep on my stomach, ever. But, I have been the past few weeks because it's soooo hot in my house, and I've been desperate to find a comfy sleeping position, lol. Thanks for the answers! : )

Open Question: Even though I'm exercising and eating healthy, I'm still binging?

2.5 years ago I weighed 187 lbs, my all-time high. Now I'm hovering between 148 and 152. I've lost that through inconsistent exercise, diet and healthy eating. Moreso lately I've been trying to stick to the following lifestyle: Exercise 3-6 days a week. 30-60 mins cardio, 30-40 mins strength training and weights. Cardio: elliptical machine, random, levels 5-10. S. training & weights: various exercises (squats, dumb bell push press, rotational lounges etc.), 3 sets of each, 15 reps, 60 seconds between sets. Diet Breakfast: Quaker Oats and tea OR a piece of fruit (ex. peach) and a sandwich (made with wholewheat bread and Becel margarine) OR a salad (with Balsamic vinegar and olive oil dressing) and 1-2 pieces of fruit. Lunch: a salad OR a sandwich OR a protein bar [post-workout]. Dinner: a piece of fish and salad OR a chicken leg or breast and salad OR steak and salad OR curried chicken, rice and legumes. This might sound perfect, but I have a big problem: I binge. Not in the bulimic sense, but in the "eating a lot in one day" sense. I have days when I binge on junk like there's no tomorrow, and by junk I mean gummies (my main weakness), chips, pop, pizza. When I'm on the health kick, my daily calories total between 1000 and 1200. I've been told that I should increase it to 1500 since I work out pretty hard. Perhaps that's why I'm binging. Anyway, I'd appreciate it if you could tell me what you think of my regime, and what you think I should do to stick to it.

Open Question: Have any of you had a lithotripsy?

My boyfriend has kidneys full of stones and has been recommended for a lithotripsy, however, he has a lot of other medical issues - he has Cystic Fibrosis - and we are nervous about the side effects: among his issues he has had pulmonary hypertension in the past and we dont want to risk hypertension or renal failure.

As a side note - we cant modify his diet to avoid stones, its too important to keep his diet up to deal with his CF

Open Question: My boyfriend sleepwalks and is at times violent...?

My boyfriend and I live together and there have been several incidences where my boyfriend has been sleepwalking and has covered my face with a pillow saying "I'll fucking kill you!" and has punched me in his sleep while yelling "I'll beat the shit out of you!"... It's happened a total of five times now, I know this because it's scared the crap out of me each time. I know that when he was younger he destroyed a fan while sleeping so I'm really worried that he may try to hurt me further. What bothers me the most is that when I'm all shaken and he's out of his sleepwalking phase, he doesn't seem to believe he's done what he's done. He's not an alcoholic, however does frequently smoke - if that has anything to do with it? I don't know what to do to stop this from happening. I'm becoming afraid for my safety. Please help.

Open Question: Really weird body shape...exercises?

Okay so I'm 14 and I'm almost 5' 8" and about 132 lbs (60 kg), but I'm a swimmer and so I have big shoulders and back. I have a really small, flat butt (probably because I'm half Japanese) and big wobbly thighs and a not-so-flat-at-all tummy. I have really small breasts and hips too, I wear a 36a in bra size and my waist is 28 and my hips are 33, so I wear a 4-6 in jeans but in tops, more like a 6-8 in womens. And my feet are, like, size 10. (not sure if that matters). So are there any exercises I can do to get bigger breasts, hips, and butt, and smaller tummy and waist and thighs?

Open Question: Could this be ADHD or something else?

I know it's summer but I'm horrified to go back to school because my school hate me because of my 'behavioural problems' and my lack of organisation. I apparently have the 'attention span of a goldfish' and I always start doing one things and ten seconds later I'm trying to sort something else out and have no idea what I was supposed to be doing. My family are getting annoyed because I 'act like a five year old' and am always running around. I can't sit theough long presentations or movies because I get distracted and am often told by people to sit still. Also, I'm scared to wake up every day in case I do or say something stupid and I keep thinking about suicide. The thing is, I'm scared because I know I'll be really happy in a few days/weeks and people will start getting freaked out (again). I really think something is wrong with me. My school think it's ADHD, my friends think it's bipolar disorder.

Open Question: HELP!!! Swollen lymph nodes around collar bone ane neck!?

Hi im 16 and ive had a bunch of large swollen lymph nodes around my collar bone and lower neck for the past 3 to 4 months. im not sick, in fact i almost never get sickm even a common cold. i have a really strong immune system which makes this even more odd. the nodes can move around when i touch them but theres like a cluster of them and they are super easy to feel even just by touching my neck. i keep feeling them to see if theyre still there. and they are. my mom told me if i stop touching them theyll go away but i have a feeling this is more serious than that. by the way i am very underweight and i was anemic when i was like 7 but it only lasted a year (i took some vitamins) so i dont know if that has something to do with it. they dont really bother me unless i apply pressure, yet i always try to sleep on the side of my body with the swollen lymph nodes cause the pillow feels really nice and it somehow relieves the tight feeling. i dont want to see a doctor because i am soo unbelievably scared theyll give me a shot in my neck, or suck out some of the lymph node for testing or even worse cut my neck open just for a stupid sample.. i wouldnt mind if they just did an xray or something and then gave me antibiotics but the idea of haveing a needle in my NECK disturbs me and doctors always overreact to otherwise simply treated things to make money... omg now my neck hurts just thinking about needles. ahhhhh please help me, and tell me your experiences or what i should do or tell the doctor so they dont stick me with needles thank you.

Open Question: Is my best friend overreacting, what do you guys think?

We are both 18 years old guys who just graduated high school about 3 1/2 weeks ago, been best friends since pre-school. So about two months ago, I made a comment to a new picture my best friend posted on MySpace saying: "You look chubbier, is it the food from McDonalds?" in a joking manner, with expression faces and such, indicating that I was joking, he makes it so he has to approve the comment before being posted, when I try to find out if he approved my comment (which was a joke), I found out he deleted me from MySpace. After that I apologized tremendously lots of times, but not to the point where it annoys him. The reaction I got was him being angry, cussing me out, and asking me to stop texting him. I did all I can to make amends, I tried calling but he hung up on me. meeting him in person is out of the question because in order for that to happen, we need to call each other first. I messaged him on Facebook (I have him as a friend there still) apologizing sincerely, as well as text, indicating to him I still care about him. So I had him as a friend on Facebook all this time, but TODAY, he chose TODAY to block me from viewing or posting on his wall, everyone can see his wall accept me! I can't believe he's still mad at me for this, I mean after all, it's been almost two months since this happened. We already missed each other's birthdays, I said Happy Birthday to him, but he didn't say it to me. If I call he'll just hang up on me. He is super skinny, so I don't know why it would offend him so much. On his Facebook (When I could still view his wall), it indicates that he's currently had another falling out with another one of his friends, he talked about being a backstabber and such to another friend, and asking his other friend to forgive him. We graduated high school 3 1/2 weeks ago, and we go to different high schools. By the way, this is the ONLY reason why he's mad at me. He did mention that working at McDonald's is stressful, if that helps? How do I recover this friendship? I'm going through so much right now and I seriously don't need this, please help me to the best of your ability, and if you have any more questions about this, please email me, thanks!

Open Question: Why does my knee lock up?

Sometimes when I bend my knee in for whatever reason, it locks in place. What happens is I'll bend my knee up (I've noticed it USUALLY happens when I bend in quickly, although since it happens infrequently, I might be wrong), I'll feel this sort of popping sensation in my knee, and then the underside of my knee will feel a little weird (sorry I can't describe it any better than that). Attempting to extend my leg back out is extremely painful. I don't know if just waiting makes it go away or if I'm extending my leg out a certain way. When I manage to extend my leg without pain I'm back to normal until it happens again. I'm not sure what it is, but sometimes it gets really annoying. For example, I fell asleep on the couch, rolled off, woke up and my knee was locked. I was effectively stuck on the floor. My mom and stepfather "helped" me by grabbing my ankle and trying to pull my leg open. Didn't feel too great. Thanks.

Open Question: Advice on rest between workouts?

Ok well currently my routine is this Monday & Thursday -Chest/Triceps Tuesday & Saturday- Legs Wednesday & Sunday- Biceps/Back Friday- Abs/Cardio I just recently joined Golds Gym. I use to work out at my house but it wasnt doin the job anymore. The first time ever working out at Golds it was a leg day and my legs were killin me the next day. They are still a little sore now but its another leg day tomorrow. Im pretty sure my legs were so sore because im not use to all the different machines and ways to work them. After a week or so i shouldnt be AS sore from my workouts i would think. So is it ok if i just work my legs out at like 75% tomorrow. I wouldnnt be straining them too much since they are still a little sore but I would still be working them. I have about 3 full days of rest between each workout of the same group of muscles. I try to get ATLEAST 100g of protein a day just from shakes/bars not including other foods such as eggs/meats. With this amount of protein combined with enough sleep i believe 72 hours of rest is sufficient. Any advice?

I'm 15 years old and will be 16 in November. I was on varsity Poms last year (i will be on varsity again next year) and have done ballet for 13 years now.

I keep forgetting to not rub my lips with the cream because when I do my tongue tends to touch my lips and I can taste it.

Open Question: Azithromycin for Chlamydia?

I saw the doctor and had the test about a week ago. It showed that I got Chlamydia. I was given 1G of Azithromycin (totally 4 tablets) for a single does 7 days ago and I took it. I didn't feel there's any improvement the first 3 days after I took. From the 4th day, I started feeling better. Right after I woke up, I went to the washroom, I still felt some burning and itchy inside the tip of my penis but definitely got better than before. After the first pee in the morning, I usually didn't feel anything when I went pee the other time of the day. However, it's the 7th day today after I took the pills. This morning, I still felt little burning and itchy, pretty the same as yesterday. I am wondering if this is normal? Does it mean I still have the virus? Or, the virus has been killed but the burning and itchy feeling would still lasts for a certain period even after the virus has been gone? Please advise. Thanks. P.S. the doctor told me to have a re-check in a month after I took the pills.

Open Question: Bleeding with bowel movements?

I need HELP!! I just had a baby one month ago tomorrow (second child) :) She was a vaginal birth. The Dr. said I had a "small" hemorrhoid and it was no big deal. However, now - my stool is covered in bright red blood and it drips from my anus. Also, the pain is horrible! It hurts to have a bowel movement and it hurt for the next day or two after one. I am also using stool softener and I am still bleeding that bad! After the birth of my first child I had an anal fissure that needed surgery. How do you know if it is a hemorrhoid or an anal fissure?

Open Question: Could HIV be transmitted this way?

This is a long story but please bear with me. Two months ago I had my weekly grocery shop delivered to my home by a very famous UK supermarket, the lady who delivered cam eto my front door and said "oh it appears they haven't pu your shopping in bags as you requested, I will put it in for you" she then proceeded to pack my shopping, she then noticed that she had cut her hand and said "I cut my hand, I must have done it on my van, oh I've bled on your shopping now". In hindsight I should of sent it back, but she was a nice lady and I didn't want to cause a scene, but there was blood on some of my shopping. My husband filled the washing up bowl with soapy water and dipped each item in the water. I know that nothing in my cupboards could possibly still be contaminated (if the lady was HIV positive), but I did put some things in the freezer and I have read that frozen blood can help to keep HIV positive blood alive, and that once it defrosts it is still contaminated. I tried to get something out tonight and as I pulled on the freezer drawer ice sprayed out on me, can it still be contaminated?

Open Question: It hurts so much, Maybe I'm Wrong?

I was Born into a religious family. Now I don't go to church anymore. It Just depresses me too much and I feel a lot better that I'm not going... most the time. The religion I was born into is very strict. From no saying vulgar words/Swearing, To no sex before marriage. The list goes on... A few months ago I went to go live with my boyfriend two states away. My parents were very against it. But I knew it was something I needed to do... I just knew it was right. So I left, I'm happy with him and If we had the money we would get married. My family misses me. I miss them too, I love them so much. I talk to them a few times a week but.... it's hard.... to talk to my parents. I have always had this gift(maybe curse) to feel what people feel to sympathize with people.. and actually understand. I have surprised many people with how I can describe to a Tee what they are feeling. I know this because I feel it within myself like I'm experiencing their views and emotions. It's weird... but it's just how I am. I can feel so strongly.... My parents, just, when we talk on the phone. Sometimes we hit subjects I just.... I'm sorry, I'm trying my best too explain(not good with words). It's so hard. They don't like what I'm doing. Like I have had sex before marriage. I only had it with this man because I love him and I want/plan to marry him. He's my one and only. But my parents morals... it makes them sad, and just a whole bunch of other things. I know they wish I would come back to the church more than anything... it hurts them so much. and ... I feel horrible about it. It almost felt like I ran away from them, because it hurts so much to be around them. I never said flat out hey... I'm having sex with this guy... but I think they know, they are smart. I just feel like I cause so much misery sometimes. It hurts to think about all this. I've changed so much ever since I left my religion and it's a good religion with good people... .it just wasn't for me. I think they wish they had the old me back... and that hurts too. What if I'm in the wrong? I mean what if it's me that needs to change again. I don't know. I've even lied to them which was like the first time I've lied about anything... I lied to protect them... but also myself... and at the time i didn't even see it as a lie. It was so hard to lie to them. Maybe all the things I'm doing are wrong.... Living with him, occasionally using drugs and drinking, the tattoo I've gotten ( against old religion). I don't know, I just really don't know... but I want the hurt to go away. I want their hurt to go away, too. I'm just hoping someone knows what to say... Can someone help me know what to do?

Open Question: Might I Have Strep Throat?

My throat isn't very red, but there are spots on the back of my throat-- they aren't really red or white. They just look like little bumps. My throat feels swollen-- making it hard and painful to swallow. My temperature is 98.7 and everything else about me is fine. -- Just back pains from leaning down and drawing all day. If you doubt its strep throat-- what else could this be? I took some liquid soar throat medication-- it helped for only 30 minutes. I've been drinking tea, but after a while the pain just comes back.

Open Question: Best way to use MRM whey protein isobolic for weight loss?

Hi All, I’m a pretty big guy 330 pounds x-college football player with an athletic build however during the past 2 years I put on some pounds due to eating bad choice foods and not exercising. For the past 2 weeks I have been working out, treadmill and mostly pushups along with avoiding fast food and making better choices when it comes to food. I’m planning on purchasing whey protein isobolic and substituting dinner with the whey mixed with milk, ice, Greek yogurt and either blue berries or strawberries or maybe even a banana to make a shake. However I wanted to know how many times I should take the shake in one day. I only planned on taking it once a day for dinner but I was considering also for breakfast and just having a decent lunch. Any help from people that have used this product would be really helpful, I am mainly looking to drop down in weight and just get a bit cut up.

I know you have to grow up (chronologically/by time), but do you have to ACT your age? I mean, lets say someone turns... 21 or any mature-by-law age... can they still look like and act like that age?

Can I be a kid forever? **I have a fear of aging. x( i didnt wanna celebrate my birthday but I did for the cake!)

Open Question: Small Penis Problems?

I'm a guy, early 20s, and I have a small penis. I guess I'm asking females and other guys with this problem...but how should I go on with this? like it's probably 3-4 inches when hard, and it's a huge blow to my confidence. So it makes it tough for me to want to go out to meet people or to parties and stuff, because I know that if something happens I'll have to face that moment. Where she'll be like "oh". What do I do? Do women really care that much or am I overreacting? Are there any women out there with husbands or boyfriends that are small?

Open Question: Thrush, HIV, and stress?

Hi guys. I have some questions about oral and vaginal thrush and HIV, and stress. Recently, I had a sexual relationship with a person who gave me trichomoniasis. I went to the dotor when I started experiencing symptoms, and they gave me strong antibiotics called Flagyl to clear it up. I was supposed to take four pills of Flagyl in one single dose. I didn't understan my instructions, and I took one per day for four days. None of my symptoms of trich were gone until the fourth day (the burning urination stopped). But the itching persisted. So I went back to the doctor, thinking I still had trichomoniasis, but she said I didn't. She said I developed a yeast infection due to the antibiotics, and she gave me generic Diflucan to take orally. But, then I started developing angular cheilitis and oral thrush symptoms. So, I went back to the doctor (these are all different doctors, btw), and she told me I had oral thrush due to the antibiotics and gave me an oral rinse. I haven't really started the oral rinse because I feel like the oral diflucan is helping my oral thrush a lot, but the oral diflucan is NOT helping my yeast infection much at all. It isn't so intense, but it's really not going away. Oral Diflucan is supposed to be a one dose pill, but she gave me three pills for some reason and told me to take one every 72 hours. I have taken two so far and I am not feeling too much relief from symptoms. So, how does this tie into HIV and stress? Well, I know that oral and vaginal thrush are HIV symptoms. I get yeast infections allllll the time, and I have always tested HIV negative, but normally I use vaginal suppositories and the yeast infections go away. The only time I ever had a yeast infection that persisted like this was when I was in Germany and the yeast infection medication there is in the form of a pill you insert into your vagina. It didn't work. But I figured DIflucan pills would work. Maybe I just need to wait for the third pill, but I've also taken antibiotics before and never developed oral thrush. I don't know. Anyway, I took an HIV test, and I tested negative, which is a big indication that my symptoms have nothing to do with HIV, HOWEVER, my HIV test was 9-3 weeks after my sexual relationship ended. That means that it was nine weeks from the first time we slept together and about 3 weeks after the last, which isn't truly enough time to get conclusive results. I went on an HIV+ online forum, and the people there told me that tests taken at 6 weeks are generally accurate, but you should test 13 weeks after the last sexual contact. That leaves me with about another 10 weeks to go before I have a truly conclusive result for my HIV test. Meanwhile, this whole thing has me under a level of stress that I have never experienced in my life. It's literally CRIPPLING stress. I have no IDEA how to cope with this or how to handle this because I made a mistake. I've never had an STI before, and I trusted my partner. On top of that, I've never worried THIS MUCH about having HIV because I have always been fairly safe and I've been tested. Now I'm HORRIFIED and I don't know what to do. This "ministry of health" websites indicates that you can have a fairly conclusive OraQuick test result at 2-4 weeks after potential exposure: Other websites also suggest an OraQuick Advance test is fairly reliable at 3-4 weeks. Should I rest my fears of HIV and attribute this whole thing to the mondo mega super ultra stress I'm feeling? I need some advice.

Open Question: laziness as a medical condition?

laziness has affected everything in my life in a huge way. i'm a nineteen y/o girl and i dropped out of school in grade 10 because i didn't want to get out of bed because i was legit tired all the time and i didn't want to go through the process. so i've been doing whatever i want since, and i'm just destroying myself. i'm not arrogant, but i'm above average in attractiveness and i was in gifted classes before i dropped out, it just makes me think it's such a waste. even really small tasks i struggle with and reward myself on. the worst part is that i have such energy in my mind when i think about things that make me happy or things i would like to accomplish but i feel too drained to attempt fixing my life at this point and wouldn't even know how to begin. how do you overcome chronic laziness, especially when there is no one around to motivate you or stop you from being really unproductive?

I have irrational health anxiety, and my latest tick is something I've noticed for years, however, I feel like since I've focused on it, the problem has become worse (most likely in my mind.) I'm 21. Clearly all of my teeth are permanent. I can only feel my front teeth wiggle if I press a finger against the front of them and press my lower teeth into them. There is no ache, and I take pretty good care of my teeth. I mostly do this becuase of my ability to worry myself, but some reassurance and suggestions would be nice. Thanks guys.

Open Question: Lymph node was swollen for about 10 days, then shrunk significantly?

For about 10 days I had a painless, rubbery-feeling lymph node in my left armpit. It was nearly 2.5 centimeters then, and after those 10 days (and in the 5 weeks since then) became just under a centimeter; you REALLY have to look for it to find it now, but it's still there. I'm worried it could be lymphoma? Surely, if it shrank and doesn't seem to be coming back, it couldn't be lymphoma?

Open Question: I hit the back of my head about 2 weeks ago. I hit the back right part of my head.?

I was drunk one night and I manage to hit my head twice (back part). I couldn't tell if I had a concussion, cause I was too drunk. I manage to somehow get myself into bed. I manage to wake up 6 hours later fully alert but with tenderness at the back part of my head. It has been 2 weeks since the incident. I am wondering if I should still worry about internal bleeding? As of now I have bit tenderness when I rub my head (hard, like I am scratching my head) at the spot of where I hit it. Should I be concern?

Open Question: Will I Pass My Blood & Urine Drug Test? I smoked hashish?

Hello, I am worried that I might be in some trouble. I smoked some pretty potent Indian hashish (10-26%THC) about a week ago, and am wondering if the drug will show up in a blood & urine drug test which I will be taking in two days. I am not a chronic user, this was kind of a one time thing, but I'll admit I got incredibly high. I understand that THC stores in your body's fat cells, and that you must metabolize it out of your system, but am not sure whether it has left mine yet. I'd consider myself to have a very fast metabolism (I eat whatever I want, and a lot of it, and am quite skinny) I'm about 150lbs and 6 feet tall. I've been drinking a lot of water all week, about 2 liters a day, but since finding out about the drug test I've increased this number. Just hearing your opinions will really help and be much appreciated. Also, if you don't think it has left my system, any recommendations? No, I can't go out and buy any fancy detox pills, so home remedies would be cool. Thanks for your help in advance

Open Question: What will the dentist do for me?

My teeth are really bad. I let them go bad for a long time. They are all starting to rot away and I am in such pain. I am going to the dentist tomorrow to see what he can do for me. I know I'm probably going to need false teeth. How do they do that? I have never had any kind of surgery before and I'm afraid about being put to sleep because I know what they are going to be doing. Will the dentist allow payments on the bill? I really don't know anything about this, so any info will help out a lot.

Open Question: head injury, concussion?, hit my head,?

I hit my head on my way out of the subway train, on the gates rim. This was exactly 3 weeks ago. First, it was just a normal hit on the head, it didn't feel unusual. But I became more and more frightened as the numbness on my head (constant), and a short, reasonably sharp headache (occasional) persisted. I hit my head on the top right roof of the skull, and the numbness is on my bottom back right. Early on, the numbness was on the right. Head aches usually hurt the sides. The ear rings but it has gotten better. What frightens me the most is the sound, similar to the one when a rice crispy is torn apart, that I hear when I rest my head on my pillow, or walk down the stairs. It feels as if not enough blood is going into my brain. and I feel tired. All the while I played soccer, got a flu, and have not gone to the hospital yet, which I suppose was really stupid, because all of these kind of made the situation worse. I have an exam tomorrow, and classes are pretty tight until Saturday. I feel tired when I think. I'm also freaked out about the possibility of losing my thinking ability, as this is really important for me.

Open Question: What is the best way to lose weight?

So i have been feeling rather unconfident lately, and i believe it is because of my weight. Im 16 and i am 5' 3, so know it may be normal, but i have never been to the point where i have been over weight. i feel like i have been gaining weight and i remember last year, i was alot skinnier than i am now. I had a flatter stomach and everything. I am usually athletic and i watch what i eat most of the time. Now, i feel like my waist has gotten alot bigger and my theighs seem bigger too. My arms seem thicker and it all makes me look over weight. So i have been trying situps and other things to try and slim me down a little, but nothing seems to be working. If it is weight that i am gaining, i need a way to help slim me up, and keep it off. i was thinking about drinking more water and eating less food through out the day, but i dont want to completely starve myself. Please if you have any suggestions, let me know. I highly appreciate it. Thank you
