27M, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, hypothyroidism, hemidystonia. Taking levothyroxin.
I have a lot of strange neuro symptoms, including neurogenic bladder, sporadic hemidystonia with associated half body weakness and muscle spasms on the same side of the body which has been loosely linked to the EDS but never truly sorted. But as of this past week, I've been having a strange new phenomenon: whenever I get a big, deep yawn, my hands both clench involuntarily. I have always been one to stretch out my hands when yawning, not clench. And the gesture is fully involuntary, I cannot unclench until my yawn is done.
Is there any possible explaination for this?
I’m 28 years old and was diagnosed with endometriosis and PCOS at the age of 14-15. Nothing got too serious until I got older. Finally got endo surgery in 2019, and was put on birth control. Since 2020 I have not had a period. I was just told I can not have kids. Unsure of what to think.

Hi, so as said I have these buttons and rash on my hands and some parts of my body for 2 Weeks now, at first I thought it was some bed bugs bites, but even after I treated my place with some anti bed bugs products, I still have these and it has become worse yesterday in the night. It is mainly located on my hands, but also smaller rashes on my arms feets and thighs. Can someone tell me what it is please?

Hi, I am just curious about the actual mechanisms of injured ligaments following an inversion sprain, and what it entails for what CAN or CANT do, regardless of what I SHOULD or SHOULDN’T do.
I just sprained my ankle early today playing basketball. Not awful but also not something that I was fully able to play through. Not uncommon, probably done it 10+ times before. Just by where the pain on the top front of the ankle joint, i would guess I have at least a minor to medium sprain of my Atfl. The pain isn’t awful and I definitely don’t think I need to go to an ortho & will probably be completely fine in 4 or 5 days.
My question here is not what I SHOULD do. I have been around the block on this one many times and RICE and don’t do anything stupid on it is always the same treatment recommendation. I understand no doctor is going to tell me to go jump around and workout on it, however I am curious about what the actual risks are, ASSUMING I don’t do anything to further risk an inversion sprain (which no doctor can assume). For example, is there actually any further injury risk to the ligaments alone if I did jumping jacks or quick feet shuffles or something that didn’t involve cutting? Like, is the process of jumping and thus pulling on the injured ligaments alone enough to further injure them? Or is it just recommended that you do nothing on it for a few days because if a doctor tells someone they can jump straight up and down and workout on an unstable ankle, they might go and do something stupid that will risk them falling on it awkwardly and worsening the injury.
Long story short, if I just did jumping jacks and high knees/exercises that didn’t involve lateral cutting, is that alone further injuring a sprained ankle, or is it just recommended to not do those things because someone might do something stupid while doing them.
Hi friends, I’ve been to a few GPs when I was younger & nobody was quite able to determine what these ‘mystery episodes’ are… sometimes just telling me they’re migraines (I get migraines reasonably often from staring at a screen at work, they’re not migraines).
Just wondering if anyone has some insights!
Frequency: As a child, nearly weekly/fortnightly. Now, once a year/2 years
Length of episode: approx. 5-10 mins (varies)
First symptom is my hands feeling really heavy & large (not like I’m holding something heavy, just like they’re heavy).
I can’t touch anything because everything feels really big or really small / like distorted in size (even my tongue in my own mouth).
Sounds are uncomfortably loud (even the rustle of a blanket is too much).
Time feels really warped (If I move, I feel like I’m moving a million miles an hour, so I try to be really slow but then my family are like lol why you trying to be a sloth grl).
Just feels like all of my senses are completely wrong and warped… like they have a 10 minute blip of function?
The only thing that helps, is to lay completely still with nothing on me (no blankets etc) with my hands facing up so they’re not touching anything, somewhere quiet. After about 10 mins it passes.
While 10 minutes every year or two isn’t the biggest inconvenience, I’d really like to know what is going on for my lil bod.
32 years old, male
After swimming i have this heart tightness for almost 24 hours Still. Feels more pain when breath somtimes.
I am also suffering from Health palpitation from 1 Year. This pain is new.. is from this Year. I had this when i started swimming but then it went Away as i was training every week. Now i had a Little break and i have this pain again.
The thing is that i also had this pain when i was Not swiming, i had quick Sharp pain that went way Fast + palpitations
I have ultrasound and heart monitor + thyroid blood test from last Year that were normal but… i think i should start visiting doctor again because when i had this teste there are Not pain at all.
Meanwhile i am really Wonder what this pain Could be and Why i am also having heart palpitaitons somtimes (with & without pain)
l've had a swollen lymph node on my right armpit that was about the size of a golf ball but has now significantly shrunk. My throat has also been sore along with some slight tenderness of my spleen when inhaling a deep breath. This has been going on for little over a month any idea what it could be?
20M/ no medications or known medical conditions.
Thanks in advance.
My mom, 62 female, has had a lingering cold like thing for a while and has tested negative several times prior. Is this most likely a “read after the timeframe” thing? Or can the positive result show up an hour later

I'm having nosebleeds pretty frequently, I'd say every other day. I thought it was just the dry winter weather (now we are into summer, obviously, so I'm not so sure.) They usually come on suddenly, like when I'm driving my car or watching TV. I figure I must have some scratches or something in my nostrils, but now this has been going on for months.
Got a dr appt in a few weeks. Worth going to urgent care in the meantime? Just had a pretty long one on my right side is why I ask. Thanks in advance.
Hi - 35, male, in good shape, exercise and eat decent and for 7-8 years (increasingly worse) I’ve had constant palpitations in my whole body every day and night that keep me up at night (pounding heart, skipped beats, discomfort in lips, fingers, chest, etc). I wake up almost hourly at night, I’m exhausted every day. The last few nights I cannot even fall asleep bc of it. I’m laying in bed now with uncomfortable palpitations. I start to doze off then they wake me up. I also feel like I may have apnea because I jolt awake when I start to doze off. But I’ve had sleep tests that ruled that out. My GP said my resting heart rate is too low for beta blockers.
I get dizzy and feel like I’m going to pass out during the day, I sometimes feel ok in the morn from 7am until about noon then I crash and need a nap and often feel groggy and weak with brain fog. Almost every day.
I have seen 3 GPS for years with no signs of any issues they can pinpoint. I have a cardiologist who has done a halter monitor and echo and no issues have been found. I saw a sleep focused neurologist who ruled out apnea and their sleep prescriptions and anxiety meds didn’t help. I’ve seen ents, allergists, dentists, and psychiatrists and nobody has helped. My dentist gave me a night guard for tmj but I have felt no improvement since using that.
My quality of life is horrible and I am feeling so incredibly sad and frustrated and I am hopeless and tired. Thanks.

I just sent my doctor a non-emergent message but… I don’t know if he’s going to think I’m an idiot.
I’ve struggled with daily headaches since I was a kid. I’ve been to neurologists a couple times throughout my lifetime. I’ve got an appointment scheduled with a new neurologist but not until September!
I’ve had MRI’s of my head with the most recent in February. I’ve tried various medications with no real success.
If an angiogram is not the appropriate test to ask for, is there something else that could provide clues?

Currently taking mirtazipine 15mg nightly
Hx of anxiety, depression, chronic migraines, endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, fibromyalgia, large ovarian cysts
I had a hysterectomy in 2021, taking everything except my ovaries so I did not go through menopause.
I have zero sex drive. I used to be very sexual. When my husband and I got together, we had sex so much he hurt his groin. I’m talking 5-6x a day. Now we are lucky to have sex a couple times a month. I have dealt with quite a lot of stress over the last couple of years but due to job changes the stress has subsided quite a bit. I’m talking like, I was losing chunks of hair in the shower and couldn’t sleep even when taking 400mg of trazadone a night, that’s how stressed I was. But now it’s a lot better and I still have no sex drive. It’s affecting my marriage negatively and I don’t know what to do about it.
My husband has an extremely high sex drive and is very sexually frustrated. Can anyone point me in the right direction to help me? I enjoy sex with my husband and want to continue to have it, but idk where to turn to fix this issue.
Hi, I hope this is the right place to ask for help-
Background info: I'm a 16 year old male who lost 35ish pounds in the past year, everything shrunk except for my man boobs (had for multiple years) - which is why I had come the conclusion that I most likely had gynecomastia. I'm roughly 5'8 140-145 pounds.
A few months ago I visited a pediatric surgeon to figure out whether my man boobs were caused by excess fat or if it was gynecomastia, when I arrived he seemed knowledgeable and respectful, he had me remove my shirt and lift my arms to see if my claims were possible. Within 30 seconds of eyeing my condition he came to the conclusion that I did indeed have gyno. Now I'm sitting here wondering how he could be so sure it's gyno and not just excess fat, because the surgery is so expensive Im really just looking for information on if this is something I should be worried about?
For reference I visited him a second time 2 months ago and he did the same procedure and came to the same conclusion
TLDR: Doctor decided I had gyno from a quick glance, is this normal or should I be worried.

basically I was laying in bed, my head on the pillow with my face looking at the screen doing what I do sometimes. As I finished I got a really intense rapid onset headache. It felt like it was going up the back of neck and to the the back of my skull. This happened to me the other day too, but today was much more intense, lasted longer, and I think induced the nausea im having rn. I was sitting down smoking weed to get rid of this headache, and it made me think I should share this. Now that I smoked, the pain is gone but my head feels weird. That says nothing though really since that usually happens with the stuff I get around here lol (it’s from a dispensary, totally safe, very good).
Paranoid theories: sign of stroke or csf leak. had an occasional clear drip from my nostril, possibly from Injury. Hard to remember wether it’s been consistently the same nostril. Anyways, I bought test tubes last year to try to ‘catch’ it and try to see if it’s really been a weird runny nose or a legit csf leak. but it’s been a while since it happened, though I do have one old dried up sample.
I am a 22 year old male at 6’ 150 lbs I smoke but take no medications/ vitamins.
About 3 days ago a bug bite appeared on my inner-upper thigh. It was red, itchy, and about the size of a penny but after 2 days it seems to have grown slightly and has been darkening in the middle.
I have included a imgur link to a closeup of the bite and was hoping if you could let me know if it were something i should see a doctor about or just be careful and keep clean.
Thank you for your time
42F, 5' 6", 245lbs
History: High blood pressure (currently treated), Sleep Apnea (use cpap daily), High cholesterol (currently treated), PCOS.
Medications: Rosuvastatin, Lisinopril, Metformin, Multivitamin, Melatonin, Magnesium.
Issue: When I walk with any speed or run for about 2-3 minutes, I get a burning pain on the outside of my right leg. It is present from about 2-3 inches below the bend in my knee to about 3 inches above my ankle. The burning can be almost instantly fixed by stoping, and rolling my right foot out to the side and putting pressure on the inside ball of my right foot by pressing against the ground. The pain will start again almost immediately if I continue to walk or run. To get it to completely go away, I have to stop all activity for 15-20 minutes, but then it will start again with 2-3 minutes of fast paced walking or running.
This first started 3-4 years ago, but also included pain that went down my ankle and wrapped under my foot. I believe this was the peroneal tendon. The ankle and under the foot pain has gone away with PT, but the pain higher up has remained. As a side note, I have huge calf muscles.
Treatment: I've been going to a personal trainer 3 times a week for over 6 months. Among other things, we work on my hip flexors, my ankle stability, overall balance, and strength. All of these areas have significantly improved during my time with the trainer. I see a massage therapist once a week for a deep tissue massage and they specific work on the leg area as well as my glutes and hips. I've been going to PT for 9 weeks doing exercises specifically for my legs and hips. With all of this there hasn't been any substantial improvement. Some days seem to be better than others, but I still can't walk very far if I'm going fast. If I go slower, I can walk for many, many hours without any pain, like at a theme park.
Doctors: I've visited my primary, who is the one that sent me for PT. He also had an MRI done of my back. I have a bulged disc on the left side that is pushing on the nerve. My leg pain is on the right side. I'm trying to do core exercises to improve the bulged disc.
Goal: Eliminate the pain so that I can walk fast and/or run as part of an exercise plan.
Any suggestions on what it could be or why none of the PT, training, or massage are helping? What would help? Any other tests or imaging that could be done to determine the issue? Thanks for any help.
This is so weird and I don’t know how to explain it. The past couple nights I (28f) have been laying in bed and felt an odd lump on the top of my leg, right where it “connects” to my torso. When I poke it, however, to see what it could be, it makes a “popping” sensation and disappears. No more lump that I can feel anywhere and no pain. It’s almost as if there’s a bubble under my skin randomly that pops when I touch it and comes back the next day. Any idea what this is?
Hi :) I have been on the medicine Lasix for almost a year now. I take a relatively high dose (80 mg, twice a day) and really want to wean off eventually. - I am a 24 year old woman. Not overweight.
I was honestly wondering if this medication can affect your metabolism or thyroid? I have been eating quite well and getting more exercise but keep gaining, not losing any weight at all! It's very frustrating and I didn't have a problem before using the Lasix. I was wondering if this medication could be the thing stalling my progress. - if that's the case, how long would it take for my metabolic state to return to normal after getting off it/getting my dose lowered. I don't have a doctors appt. For another month but my blood pressure and labs have all been good. The lasix was initially used for some bad edema in my legs, and it got rid of excess water (and water weight for that matter). Thanks for any help!
Also - not looking for medical advice, just an answer to the side effects of lasix.
My girlfriend started feeling soreness in her chest around noon today, and noticed that one of her ribs on the left side of her chest is bulging out more than normal. If I had to guess it would be the 2nd or 3rd rib. I took a look and can confirm that one rib does seem to be a little more pronounced than usual. She didn’t experience any sort of trauma today, nothing hit her, no falls, nothing. It just spontaneously started feeling sore, and then about 8 hours later she noticed one rib is more prominent than usual by touch and sight. Any ideas what could cause something like this?

Before I start I have OCD.
Went to the doctors a few months ago and got very anxious during a blood pressure reading - due to recent anxiety I had at the time. It came back quite high.
However, I’ve done some digging and found some clinical notes from when I was younger (10 years old) in which I was in the hospital with illness, staying in the children’s hospital part of the hospital. Apparently under the ‘examination’ part of the notes my blood pressure (BP) was completely normal - 113/59.
There is absolutely no chance that the blood pressure (BP) reading that was stated in the clinical notes at the hospital was guessed, right? Even though I was a kid, and don’t have memory of it.

Primary complaint: I recently started seeing what I thought were bug bites, first on my left hand and later on my arms, now on my legs. The ones on my hand were raised bumps that itched like bug bites, but others have since appeared, on my hand and elsewhere, that are flat and look like a hive or rash. Some itch a lot and others don't itch at all.
Duration: Approx 1 week
Medical Issues: none
Current Medications: birth control (for decades), Allegra for whatever-this-is
Drinking: Occasional 1-2 per month
- They seem to appear in groups of two together.
- There are none on my torso, chest, back, upper legs, scalp, or feet so far.
- They are not scaly, no blister or pus, and the week-old ones are fading away.
- I don't feel any more sick than usual and don't seem to have a fever.
- They are not any more itchy than bug bites/do not keep me awake at night or anything and I do not scratch them.
- Taking Allegra does not seem to do much and doesn't prevent new ones from appearing.
- They are NOT mosquito bites, which present as raised "plateau" welts on me.
- Unfortunately I am on tour with a musical, so am in a different hotel/city/state every week, which I understand can make diagnosis very difficult.
- I was in Thousand Oaks CA this week. I have gotten hives or skin rashes while visiting CA before that did not look like this, but wonder if it might be some irritant in that part of the country.
- Locations are five on left hand; three on left upper arm; six on right arm in groups of two; two together on back of left lower leg; one on front of left ankle and one on side of left ankle; two on face/right cheek; and one very large bright red itchy one on back of right lower leg (perhaps it's two combined)
The ones on my hand are about a week old and are fading. The ones on my legs are new, itchy, and bright red, even more so than the pictures show. Pictures: Left Hand 1, Left Hand 2, Right Shoulder, Left Leg, Right Leg 1, Right Leg 2
My main concerns are that this is something viral, fungal, bacterial, or contagious to others.
I'd like to pick up an OTC ointment to try on them, but am unsure what to try. I plan to visit a walk-in clinic tomorrow but have a feeling they'll tell me to keep taking Benadryl (which makes them itch less but doesn't stop new ones from appearing).
Any advice, thoughts, identification appreciated! Trying not to freak out :(
Thank you VERY much for having this subreddit!
I am a 25 year old female ~135 lbs and these are my results. What does this mean?
I’m pretty desperate to figure out what’s wrong with me but every test I have says I’m perfectly healthy- besides the iron deficiency anemia and vitamin D deficiency.
I’m so physically exhausted, I vomit clear mucous-y liquid once a week, I have daily acid reflux, my joints (knees and elbows) hurt, I get random rashes all the time though not as bad as when I was younger after eliminating things (certain body wash, laundry detergent) that seem to have no connection, if I don’t use a very specific toothpaste (not even sensodyne works) I get sores in my mouth, and the time in between periods ranges from 26-55 days. I’m tired of playing wack-a-mol every time I eat or put something on my body.
If this test doesn’t indicate anything what should I do next?
-Antigliadin Abs, IgA: 1.3 U/mL standard range: <7.0 U/mL -Antigliadin Ab, IgG: 2.7 U/mL Standard range: <7.0 U/mL -TTG IgA: 0.4 U/mL Standard range: <7.0 U/mL -TTG IgG: 0.6 U/mL Standard range: <7.0 U/mL -Immunoglobulin A (IgA): 335 mg/dL Standard range: 70-400mg/dL
Edit: I also have oligodontia, a learning disability, and anxiety/depression treated with Zoloft if this additional information helps
Age:22 Height:6'2" Weight:186lb On May 27, I was placing down sod that had mites in it. I got a lot of small bites from the mites on both of my legs. Those bites are almost gone. On my thigh I have another bite that was fron that same day. It began as a small i'd say about less than 1in diameter bite but after days it got bigger. Right now it looks like a large oval bullseye where the widest portion is 4in and the narrowest portion is 3in. Should I be concerned and see a doctor? I haven't had any symptoms besides it just being itchy.
An image of the bug bite can be found on my profile. This sub does not let me post an image of it.
24 male, 170 lbs, non smoker, Looking for the definition of when you somewhat strain your neck and you feel a slight pop at the base of your skull/top of your spine, then feel a warming sensation followed by tingling and tightness, effects last around 5 minutes, I’ve always heard it being called “popping a blood vessel” when I was a kid but wanted to know what it was. Many thanks!

Recently about a month ago i fell down some homemade wooden steps and bounce off about 3 of them then a week ago i slipped at work and landed on my ass, I ended up getting checked at the e.r and they said its just “bruised” and gave me a 3 day work note… Im pretty sure its fractured. I want to know how long the recovery time is and what the proper healing process is like cause i went back to daily activity a day after really getting hurt and now after researching im assuming thats not ok. I slipped and got hurt last Tuesday and since havent been working but been walking around and doing daily activities, its still bruised and i havent been taking medication. how dangerous is that and what could be possible long term effects ?? The first few days after falling my 3rd and 4th toe on my left foot were numb. Its been 7 days and i havent sat down really. What should i do now???
I’ll try to keep this as short as possible, and I’m making paragraphs, but it doesn’t always work on mobile for me, so apologies if you are looking at a word wall.
Background: Dad’s side of the gene pool unknown. My side (both parents and extended family)- anxiety, depression. Immediate family are auto-immune disasters. I have celiac and vitaligo. One of my parents has psoriasis, and other auto-immune issues I can’t recall.
My child has had a rash on her abdomen for at least a year. Now on her chest and rapidly growing over her shoulder and back. Always exhausted. Claims she goes to bed at 1:30 every night, but 9x out of 10 she goes to bed before me, and when I check in, she’s passed out- by 11.
Has recently had sores in her mouth regularly. Has gained a bit of weight over the past couple months with no change to her diet or activity. Stomach issues on a regular basis. Been tested for celiac several times- always negative. Last month got blood tests and ferritin and wbc slightly high.
Saturday night, complaining her right hand was swollen and it hurt- swelling was obvious. Sunday, entire right side of body is swollen, and noticeably. Hand, forearm, calf, chest. Just the right side. Went to urgent care. Not mono. Lyme test still pending. Chest x-ray looks good. NP is baffled.
Swelling is significantly less today. Follow up with primary care today anyhow. Dr. is also baffled. Working through a battery of blood tests.
Ferritin is still slightly elevated. Iron is now slightly low. Still waiting on the rest of the tests. See a dermatologist next Monday for the rash.
I know google is a terrible resource, but I’m almost thinking Lupus. Dr. today wasn’t convinced, but she again is baffled.
Kid is on a cocktail of meds for anxiety/depression and ADHD. Finally found the right combo almost a year ago, one of which can cause a terrible rash, but we slowly eased into her current dose to avoid that rare side effect. Dr. does not think rash is related to the meds. Also rash is more of a brownish discoloration of skin. Not itchy. Not red. Sometimes looks scaly or raised, but doesn’t feel like either.
Kid did get a birth control device inserted into her left arm 3 months ago, with no issues (that we know of). Has helped tremendously with the cramps. Not sexual active.
Goes to school, works, hangs with friends , or me. Sleeps.
Any thoughts? I feel terrible for her. She is such a good kid, but is sick of feeling like garbage. Could it be stress? 2 weeks left until graduation…
Hi. I'm an uncircumcised male with longterm partner of almost two years. We found this at the base of my urethra - it emerges more significantly with foreskin retracted. Does this look more like a skin tag of some kind or the result of HPV or...? We went to a doctor who was uncertain, but treated it with liquid nitrogen. Thank you.

a couple hours ago i fell on my stairs because i had slippery socks on and i wasn’t being careful with myself. i fell a good 2-3 steps and my tailbone hurts very badly and i took ibuprofen and pain killers and iced it but the pain is still tender. i have the ability to walk and sit and lay down still although i’m not sure if it is fractured or bruised. i haven’t been to the doctors yet but i am going tomorrow. i also go to dance and i have to preform in about two weeks and i’m not sure how long it will take to fully recover from this. i also have a solo part in it where i do a leg lift and that is my only part, yet i’m not sure if i could do it. i wouldn’t want the teacher telling somebody else to do it. so does anyone know how major this is and how long it is to recover from a fractured/bruised leg and will i for the most part be okay?
