All at once and all on an empty stomach. She just got diagnosed with gastritis last week. I’m no doctor but that’s A LOT! I’m scared to call anyone because she’s my Best friend and I don’t want her to hate me. Can she ride this out? I’m stupid I know she overdosed, my question is, is what will happen to her? She 5’0 160lbs she’s starting to feel a little nauseous, lightheaded and weak. She feels faint to. What is going to happen to her? She told me she did this an hour ago but just told me. I don’t know what to do. I’m going to call her parents but what can she expect to happen!? Is she gonna die! :( please serious answers only. I’m with her right now and she’s a little out of it. She feels like she’s going to pass out but she’s begging me not to call anyone. I don’t know what to do! It’d be more helpful if I can get answers on what’ll happen to her and what the Socorro might do. I’m really scared.

  • 12 year old diagnosed with schizophrenia. As a mother can I refuse her treatment?

    I don’t believe mental illnesses should be treated with medication, she’s is not citizen from this country, as last resort I will move back to my country with her to avoid her treatment, but for now, will this country allow me to refuse her treatment?

    I don’t believe mental illnesses should be treated with medication, she’s is not citizen from this country, as last resort I will move back to my country with her to avoid her treatment, but for now, will this country allow me to refuse her treatment? I know the best course of action as I’m her mother, schizophrenia is in our family, I was also diagnosed with it at around her age, so did my dad, and so did my grandad. Schizophrenia is more of a condition that you can learn to love it. I’m better without meds, so was my dad, I think I can teach my daughter to learn to love it and make the most of it like I do and like my dad does. In fact I think life would be too dull without it.

  • Was this appropriate?

    Best answer: Yes, it was. A medstudent at that level is very close to being graduated (and what = he is a fake doctor?), almost anyone with training can get a history and physical, then the results were reported to a senior attending AND a specialist, So he was seen by THREE doctors. Med students are also extremely meticulous... show more

    Best answer: Tums are an antacid made from calcium carbonate.

    Tums are a relatively low risk medication for most people. The body has hormonal mechanisms which limit the absorption of calcium from the intestine and which prevent hypercalcaemia (too much calcium in the blood). The main risk would be formation of kidny stones from prolonged high dose consumption and too much calcium in the urine. Some conditions put someone at risk of hypercalcaemia, and this can make someone sick or can even kill. These include certain medications, too much vitamin D, too much parathyroid hormone, and certain forms of cancer.

    But if you're taking lots of tums because you feel you need them then you need to see a doctor and be tested for things such as peptic ulcer, hiatus hernia, helicobacter pylori and stomach cancer. There are more effective medications which stop the secretion of acid by the stomach rather than neutralising acid already in the stomach.

    And if you're taking these tums in an attempt to end your life please seek help. Many people who feel suicidal seek help and then they don't feel suicidal anymore, and they're glaad they didn't kill themselves.

    I really, really want to become a doctor because I genuinely want to devote my life to helping others, I'm doing neuroscience undergrad right now, but I honestly can't handle seeing blood or cuts or needles :/ do doctors just learn to get over it? I was looking into radiology because that mostly works with just scans instead of actually seeing the 'gross' stuff but are there other specialties that don't deal with seeing cut flesh or injuries?? I really wish I wasn't so weak with that stuff :( thanks for any help!!

  • If you injected Heroin into a passed out person, what would happen when they wake up?

    Will they crave Heroin even though they never knew about anything because they were passed out? They didn't experience a high, they were passed out too long. What would happen when they wake up? How would they know they need more Heroin?
