Post and discuss medical issues here. It helps to talk about them.

My lower left lung has been hurting, it feels like it's been stabbed. And I just coughed and tasted blood. Didn't see any blood when I went to the mirror and made myself cough again, just tasted it.
I'm scared. I'm poor. The doctors are going to let me die if it's cancer, I can't afford it. I did used to smoke but it was only for a year or two... I've been having trouble breathing but it might just be allergies. I will try to be optimistic.

I also went two years without brushing my teeth and my gums are so full of bacteria it's actually making me sick now. I'm sick constantly because of my own mouth, swallowing bacteria is irritating my throat and giving me a fever, and will be till I pay up $7,000 to unfuck my mouth. No root canals yet, and only two teeth have to be pulled, so that's a positive I guess. I got good teeth genetics from my folks. The dentist said average people would have had lots of teeth fall out by now.

Best advice I can give anyone is take Vitamin D supplements if you aren't in the sunlight at least 30 minutes a day. It helped me a lot.

Every time I go to pee I have this feeling of not fully emptying the bladder. I've had this problem for like 3 years, yet the doctors didn't find anything. I masturbate almost daily so I guess it's not related to the prostate, also I'm still young. It's not life threatening but it's very annoying. I already got used to this feeling, but still, I haven't feel empty in a long time.
Recently I have this problem too when I go to poop. Going to the doctor again tomorrow


Also the left side of my hip hurts but I guess it's from bad posture because of my shitty chair

Mostly mine are mental health issues but I don't think that's very interesting since I'm sure a lot of people here already understand.
I lost my tooth when I was young and I have a fake one.
My ears get clogged with wax to where I can barely hear about 2-3 times a year, may not seem like a big deal but I need good hearing for my job.
I'm constantly tired which might be chronic fatigue syndrome but I suspect it's just my depression.
I was very paranoid about my heart for a while because I get palpitations, mixed with anxiety and stuff I got a serious complex about it. I'm getting better from it now I don't worry so much. I even went to a top cardiologist once and he found nothing and I felt really guilty about wasting his time.

I had nuss surgery 10 months ago. It was painful but I am glad I did it.

My left testicle hurts, sometimes bad enought to stop me from walking when im out. I thought it was related to nofap which by the way im not doing for the becoming normal thing but rather legit addiction and problems like cum leak and over production of precum at the slightest thought. Anyway, I thought it was related to that so I just masturbated and the pain went down a bit, but it was always only the left ball so I thought masturbating wasn't the cause. I think it's related to back problems. Because im fat, poor, don't really like leaving the house and have the body of a 45 yo being only 27 I just kind of let it pass by itself. But man does it fucking hurt sometimes, literally the same kind of deep radiating pain you get when you get your balls hit.

You can't become normal. That's not how it works.

Still, you should look for free clinics. If it's testicular torsion you may lose your ball, get gangrene and then die a slow horrible death.
>> No. 23574 [Edit]
>>23571
>testicular torsion
This is the second most probable cause. When I go to piss I lower my boxers with my left hand and grab my dick with my right hand, the elastic band on the left side often lifts my left ball in an odd way, but since the pain has never occurred as soon as I make that movement I guessed that wasn't it. Also while the pain can be very intense and incapacitating it rarely lasts more than a couple of minutes, if it was testicular torsion im sure it'd last for hours til my balls die of lack of blood flow. Apparently there's also intermitent torsion so maybe it really is that, im going to be more careful next time and see what happens. Thanks for the input anon.
>> No. 23579 [Edit]
I used to get pains in my left ball too, sound about the same as the earlier guy describing them. My heart tends to hurt alot when I do some high-adrenaline activity like trying to push the boundaries a little on forums I'm deeply connected with, fearing getting banned. Feels like there's no point in hanging around if I don't prank them sometimes though, all of the cool guys are gone, and I'm just some kind of vengeful ghost.

I also have this shitty condition where I tend to get rashes all over my skin, it hurts particularly around my face and chest. This happens whenever I blush, whenever breeze blows against me, when I have a shower (water pressure, it's not normally as bad in this case because that same pressure numbs it), or often for no reason at all. It burns bad enough that I half get the feeling to start scratching all over, but I know it won't help at all, waiting it out is the best I can do. I also have some pretty severe cases of tinnitus sometimes, and my vision is constantly shit up by visual snow and basically every other visual disease known to be associated with it, but those are non-issues.
Anyway, no potentially terminal diseases or anything, so sorry if it doesn't belong in this thread. I'm sure there's people on this board who are literally dying right now.

Im probably going to be made fun of, because the stereotype of fat people is that they can't keep their mouths shut. Well, im fat, and I've counted the calories I consume on average since crippling deppresion and bankruptcy consumed me, a little over a year ago, though I have had this exact lifestyle for about 4 years. Wake up, mindlessly browse the web, sleep, shitpost, play games, sleep again, eat, play some more and then go to bed. Turns out im getting in anywhere from 800 to 1500 calories, some days less than the minimum, other days more than tha maximum. As a male in my mid 20s and being 1.78m im supposed to get like 2300. Why am I still a fat fuck, with man tits and tired all the time? Granted, sometimes up to half of what I consume is empty carbs, sugar, chocolate milk in particular because it's cheap and I takes no time to prepare. I should note that I smoke all day though, a pack per day at least, I feel that's what gives me energy and not really food. 9 out of 10 days I have a single meal per day because it means less time wasted washing dishes, eating and preparing my meal, it also means I don't have to take a shit as often, because again that takes time and energy and im too lazy. Still, I believe I should increase my calorie input, but im sure I'd get fatter as a result, I've been overweight since I can remember, but I haven't gained weight in over 10 years. I just don't know how to get more energy, time's running out and I need to get my shit together but anything I do I feel so tired afterwards. In fact whenever I have a proper meal I feel tired enough to go to bed right after that, that's why I preffer the quick boost of sugary crap. I've thought about multivitamins but can't afford it, I'd even do cocaine if only I had any sort of acquaintance to set me up with a dealer, but in reality not even my family talks to me save for my father. In case you wonder what my diet generally looks like it's mostly eggs, premade meals, tuna, sardines, chicken breast and red meat, no green stuff or veggies as you can see sadly other than occasional mushrooms and lentils, all accompanied with plain water, no soda ever.

Everytime I talk about this on another imageboard I get the same shit replies, "just keep your mouth shut!" "that 3 liters Coke counts too, fatty!" yeah fuck you buddy I wish I could afford as little as that but I can't. What the fuck can I do anons?
>> No. 23643 [Edit]

I'm amazed you'd think anyone would make fun of you on a site filled with the most pathetic losers the internet has to offer (yes I'm including myself in that statement.).

Far as I can tell it sounds like you just need to burn more calories by being more active. I'm no expert but if a person does nothing but browse the web all day I think they can still get fat even if they're nearly starving themselves. I dunno, people might have told you this already but while the body naturally burns calories at any given moment, it wont burn much if you're being inactive. I'm not saying you need to become a gym rat and pump iron(That 'would' help a lot), you could just try some light exercise. I was in the same boat as yourself barely eating but slowly gaining weight. Just doing some mild cardio came help a lot, ie jogging/bike ridding. Pretty much anything that works up a sweat can help you loose weight. Besides, it's free to go for walks/jogs. Why not try starting small with walking around your block one of these days? Then walk two blocks or more the next time you go at it, and expand the distance each time? If you feel up to it, light jogging could help a lot too. Just a fair warning though that it might hurt your joints depending how large you are. A bike would be better but I'm not sure if you own one.
Anyway, hope you don't take this the wrong way, just trying to be helpful.

If you are getting no exercise your body composition is going to be heavily biased towards fat instead of muscle. On top of that judging by your lifestyle you probably have awful posture which makes it look like you have man tits even if you aren't much above 15% body fatDo you have access to a weighing scales? Use it and calculate your bmi if you do. A fat calipers is like 2$ on ebay and would let you see exactly how overweight you are. Feeling tired all the time when you consume so little calories and live such a sedentary lifestyle is normal. If you truly are eating what you claim to be you have a healthy diet apart from not eating vegetables. How much chocolate milk do you consume per day? A liter of it is about 650 calories. Chocolate milk isn't empty carbs by the way, it is high in protein and depending on whether you by skimmed or not high in fat.
I'm not trying to scold you if it comes across that way.

>male in my mid 20s and being 1.78m im supposed to get like 2300.
For a 25-year-old man weighting 180 pounds, the amount of calories needed to fulfil the basic metabolic rate is 1808 calories. For you to need 2300 a day, you'd need to weight 289 pounds. Even then, you shouldn't eat more than 1800, which is what you'd need to get daily, more or less, to maximize the loss of fat and lose minimal muscle.
>Why am I still a fat fuck, with man tits and tired all the time?
>up to half of what I consume is empty carbs, sugar
You answered yourself. It's true that losing weight mostly boils down to calories, but nutrition in general does not. What you eat does matter, and a lot of foods (specially junk food) are processed differently by the body, by the speed they are consumed and by how much additional food is consumed in quick succession.
>I just don't know how to get more energy
Stop smoking, move more, eat at least 3 meals a day (same amount of calories though), ditch the junk food, and...
>I've thought about multivitamins but can't afford it
You can afford tobacco, which is objectively poison, but not multivitamins, which cost like $1 per tube of 10 effervescent tablets? That's less than $4 a month.
>no green stuff or veggies other than occasional
It shouldn't be occasional. You should consume vegetables daily. I recommend broccoli and cauliflower, they look cute and have mostly all you need from vegetables; add carrot into the mix for sweeter taste.
>What the fuck can I do anons?
Keep an open mind regarding the fact that you got all this nutrition and dieting completely wrong and you need to forget all you think you know and start from the ground up. There are likely literally thousands of online resources that can help you learn about this. All you need to do besides that is stop smoking.

I have sleep problems. I wake up multiple times per night feeling out of breath. Sometimes I wake up gasping for air. It’s either a psychological issue, or maybe it’s sleep apnea. But I don't have health insurance, so I can't afford to get a sleep study.

Instead of being sympathetic, my roommate gets mad about it. It’s not something I can control though. It’s like being kicked when you’re down.

I wish I was rich enough to live on my own. Roommates suck sometimes. Roommates are not your friends. They’re just people you have to tolerate so you can have a lower cost of living.

sounds more like sleep apnea. Try a couple of the cure-for-snoring type of things, as most of them are directly related to sleep apnea (rather, they are the less-severe form of the issue)

You don't have an Obamacare package to cover the costs?

alternatively, work out or perform some sort of strenuous physical activity for a few hours, so you are dead tired before going to bed, and you may be able to sleep through it.

>I recommend broccoli
I don't know why everyone has such a hard on for broccoli and immediately recommends it to everybody. For somebody getting into vegetables, it seems like an especially bad choice. There's so many more palatable vegetables out there. All of the leafy greens like spinach, chard, lettuce, cabbage, radicchio and collard greens exist. There's also radishes, turnips and zucchini. Pickled bamboo shoots and more exotic stuff like that is also available. Broccoli makes people gaseous and doesn't taste good unless it's smothered in some sugary sauce.

Spinach needs to be prepared right for it to taste good, and lettuce is basically flavorless water-flavored fodder. Cabbage is usually a good choice though, and tomatoes (bought from local farms, not the mass-market stuff) can be delicious when lightly grilled.

Which is still better than broccoli. I enjoy lettuce and raw spinach in salads and sandwiches. I like cauliflower though.

I haven't been doing well lately. My diet is bad. I eat about 1.5 meals a day or less, sometimes I have a snack. I think I eat 3 or 4 different meals, all more or less consisting of the same thing.
Today my body feels especially frail and achey. I had a really nasty headache last night which made me throw up next to nothing. I've been shaky since then. Some days are better than others, but today is especially bad.
I've fairly recently been diagnosed with Hypothyroidism. I have meds for it, but I don't take them very often. I took them today, but it hasn't helped much.
I've been a bit sensitive to the cold lately too, but I've never handled air conditioning well. Maybe it causes the temperature to be a bit uneven or something.
I got a patch of skin on my scalp that's thick and really flaky which I have no idea about. It appeared sometime early last year.
I guess I shouldn't be surprised. I don't really take care of myself. I was doing a lot of running last year, but I fucked up my leg a bit in February.
I'm probably just malnourished and dehydrated, but I don't really know what I should be eating. Sorry if this post is hard to read. I just wrote what came to mind.

They aren't good meals. Or anything. Usually something like half a burger with cheese and ketchup and fries and a bowl of cereal some mornings. Or Chicken and mac & cheese. Cheese pizza on weekends. I don't get much in the way of actual nutrients.

The hypothyroidism is genetic from what I can tell. Dad has it too. It's really not that terrible when I don't take my meds. Sure, I'm a bit tired, but on the other hand I'm a little more indifferent about things. Easier to take a deep breath and let it go. My arms being achey isn't so bad.

If possible, I recommend buying a crock pot (or similar) and look for recipes that interest you. Contrary to popular belief, eating nutritious and delicious meals is not expensive, but one will have to put a bit effort into preparation. For example, cooking a chicken/turkey with seasoning and vegetables is both cost effective, healthy, and pretty dang tasty. Combine that with rice, and you'll be set.

Anon probably does not like food or enjoy eating, let alone healthy food. If that's the case, it's the biggest determining factor in their eating situation. Not once have they mentioned eating a vegetable or fruit(besides processed tomatoes). If somebody doesn't enjoy food, or prioritize their health, they can't really be helped because they'll have 0 motivation to cook.

In that case, could you supplement by taking vitamins/minerals to satisfy required micronutrients (you have to research a bit to find decent ones, the multivitamins you get at the supermarket aren't going to do anything, and 95% of what you buy from Amazon will be shoddy chinese goods laced with heavy metals)? That plus an occasional egg would probably be decent start.

Rice by itself is mostly just carbs (unless you get one of the fancy expensive rice strains), so that probably isn't going to make a difference.

>Usually something like half a burger with cheese and ketchup and fries and a bowl of cereal some mornings. Or Chicken and mac & cheese. Cheese pizza on weekends
You can try to swap these out for more decent variants. E.g. for the cereal, most cereals you get in the USA are full of sugar and low in nutrients. Try to find the one that is basically just shredded wheat, no added sugar. When I did some searching, I recall Multigrain-Cheerios was also a good one that was fortified with b12+zinc+some other things, so it's not a bad choice. For the burger, if you substitute the frozen patty with a bean-based one it might be slightly better. For the chicken, can probably occasionally substitute that with tofu based one, so at least you get exposure to a more diverse set of things.

Thyroid issues can cause body temperature issues, mental health issues, low-energy, sleep-problems and many others if neglected. Genetics alone normally don't screw up your health, bad diet, stress, lack of exercise, etc does. Doctors are sadly not that interested in finding the root cause of your issues, they give you "medication" to suppress the currently apparent symptoms and thats it. You go back to them later, they give you some other pills or the same but higher dose.

>something like half a burger with cheese and ketchup and fries and a bowl of cereal some mornings. Or Chicken and mac & cheese. Cheese pizza on weekends

no offense to you or the well-intentioned people who give you this stuff but this is not food but shit. (Lot more addictive than any actual-food though, so people normally eat it till they fall apart.) Vitamins / supplements can't help much. Learn to cook for yourself, I suggest. It is easy and cheap once you know how to. (and when you are not trying to achieve the same level addictiveness that crap-food has.) Rice with veggies is easy to make for example. Quality fruit is best but most expensive. Even if you cant eat/cook what you want because of money and parent-dependence, still you can make small adjustments.

+There are foods that are "goitrogenic", meaning they screw up you thyroid when eating too much of them. High-oxalate foods, fluoride in tap water, iodine deficiency also.

The right side of my stomach kept hurting these past 3 days. I didn't know drinking a lot of tea could be too acidic. Usually I can drink a lot of it, but guess my stomach had enough. After trying many things, greek honey yogurt seems to have helped it stopped hurting, so I hope it stays that way.
