    So my boyfriend doesn't have a lot of money and was traveling by illegally jumping trains. He was coming to see me from Montana, I live in Utah. He was jumping off the train before it reached the train yard and he broke his ankle and leg as well as I think a broken collarbone. He didn't want to stick around so he quickly limped off. He called me on his phone and asked me if I'd pick him up. I picked him up and he was crying in pain. He hardly has any money and no insurance. He works as a farm hand and puts up fences as well as some farm vehicle maintenance but he can't spend 200 just to get a cast. What can he do medicine wise besides going to the ER?

    So the other day i fell out of my truck and hit my wrist really hard on the step rail. The pain was really intense and there was an extremely sharp pain, my wrist and hand felt extremely hot, then got cold and my fingers started tingling. Where i hit was instantly bruised and swollen. And there was also a big knot where i hit. Its been about a week now and its still bruised and swollen. And where the bump was it is extremely tender. I have fractured my wrist before snd just like before i could use it and bend it, its just extremely tender to the touch, and the pain isn’t constant but it does worsen at night and its a dull pain. I went to the er and they says there was a lot of inflammation so they couldn’t see any fractures ans that i should go to an orthopedic specialist. What do you guys think?

  • My friend hits himself?

    Anytime he doesn't know something, which is a lot because he's a person. Anytime he makes a mistake, or gets frustrated, or he's not perfect, he starts physically abusing himself. He'll hit himself in the forehead real hard with like the base of his hand! I want to yell a concussion won't give... show more
    Anytime he doesn't know something, which is a lot because he's a person. Anytime he makes a mistake, or gets frustrated, or he's not perfect, he starts physically abusing himself. He'll hit himself in the forehead real hard with like the base of his hand! I want to yell a concussion won't give you an idea! Like sometimes you hear a hit and it's loud because it's a slap and it's probably not actually severe, but this sound is lower than that like when you hit something real hard. I've babysat toddlers who would do this sometimes, but then I could restrain them and make them calm down. He's nineteen, and realistically physically stronger than me. Can someone tell me how to help him stop or make me understand why or something?

It gave me a really large lump on forehead, I'm talking golf ball sized. It was right above my eye. Well I had it that day and yesterday. Today I woke up and the lump is half its size but now my eye underneath it is very swollen and shiny and I think I'm getting a seriously nasty black eye. Can lump move down and cause black eye just like this?

For a few months I thought I had Morton’s Neuroma so I started doing massages on it to ease it but I realized I had bruised it cause it started to darken. All of a sudden today I noticed I had a tiny hole where the pain was so I squeezed it and glass came out! There is a very ting hole in my foot so I put rubbing alcohol and bandaged my foot. I can still walk with Mininal pain Should I go to the hospital just Incase ?

  • How long is it preferable to wait after a sports injury before resuming that sport?

    I broke my ankle skateboarding in November and I spent all winter in a cast/on crutches/doing PT. It was a true nightmare and I swore to myself I would never get on my board again, but it was my first accident in 8 years and now that spring is just around the corner, I feel the itch to go out and ride.

    I broke my ankle skateboarding in November and I spent all winter in a cast/on crutches/doing PT. It was a true nightmare and I swore to myself I would never get on my board again, but it was my first accident in 8 years and now that spring is just around the corner, I feel the itch to go out and ride. Obviously, my ankle hasn't recovered full range of motion yet (although it's getting there) and I assume it's still a bit fragile. How long should I wait before safely resuming skateboarding? How likely is it that I'll break the same bone again?

    Best answer: You have accomplished, a lot: learning a to play an instrument, building a gym routine, running a marathon. You have more bragging rights than the average American.

    Best answer: You have accomplished, a lot: learning a to play an instrument, building a gym routine, running a marathon. You have more bragging rights than the average American. That is a reason to feel good about yourself. As for bullies, screw 'em, ignore them, bullies are usually bullies because they are insecure (feel like you are secretly better than them) or they are just too stupid to figure anything else to do. Since your pain started after seeing sports doctors, I wonder about what kind of advice they are giving you. Try to find a better doctor, and do not give up. DO NOT EXECUTE A PERMANENT SOLUTION TO A TEMPORARY PROBLEM.

  • Can sneezing cause permanent hearing loss?

    Best answer: No. What's happening is a sneeze forces the mucus in your sinus cavities into your eustachian tubes & middle ear. Usually that's not an issue, but if you're very congested or try to suppress a sneeze, the pressure doesn't have anywhere else to go but your ears. It's only temporary; affecting... show more
    Best answer: No. What's happening is a sneeze forces the mucus in your sinus cavities into your eustachian tubes & middle ear. Usually that's not an issue, but if you're very congested or try to suppress a sneeze, the pressure doesn't have anywhere else to go but your ears. It's only temporary; affecting your hearing until the sinus fluid drains back out of your eustachian tubes again.

    A few weeks back or so I was messing about and I sat down on the sofa and when I did I incredibly hardly bashed my skull against the wall. Straight after that happened for a few seconds I collapsed on the floor..? Only to be perfectly okay a few seconds afterwards. A few days later I threw up which I read was a possible sign of a hemorrhage? My neck became very achy and stiff to move and I started developing these severe headaches. Like cluster headaches, pain around the back of the eye. Now two weeks later my only problem is the severe headache. I get it daily, a couple of times daily for a few minutes. This has only happened since the incident. The stabbing pain has also travelled to virtually all over on the left and slightly on the right? I am very nervous. I know this is probably very unlikely, but what chance does one have of surviving a brain hemorrhage? And should I seriously seek medical help?
