Title: Who's ill?
Post by: Dokko on Wednesday 26 December 2007, 06:15:59 PM
Self inflicted doesn't count btw!  >:D

God damn Christmas has been ruined by this bloody bug that's been going round.

Only two members of my close family weren't ill on xmas day. The amount of food and booze left over was a sickening blow, even more sickening is the fact no one could even be bothered to take home any of it for afters. What a waste.

Even worse is looking after an ill child (same bug but with a double ear infection) over xmas, and the poor bugger not even a mile away from raising a smile, then breaking his heart with fear when you unwrap his prezzie for him .  :weep:

Have had about 12 hours sleep in the last 3 days, with him throwing up everytime he has something to eat and every time he coughs too much, all that being ill myself (same as him) has probably given my the worst xmas i can remember for a bloody long time.

He's picked up today though, which is great news, i've just got worse, i'm a total wreck, can't wait to get to bed and have a proper catch up on sleep now thats all over with.

It's agood thread this Toon's.  My little girl has been coughing her guts up since Christmas Eve and smae Christmas Day. When we arrived at my Sister's, her little lad was ill with some flu like symptoms and cried non-stop.  I wolfed my dinner down, necked a few Stella, finished with a few JD's and went off to bed in readiness for a good old sesh today. 
I woke up this morning and having felt a little sick through the night (with what I thought was over-indulgance of alcohol) with 'wind' problems. Or so I thought. I have these massive cramps in me gut all b*stard day and night.  Made it into the bath and that was it. Gutted.
Bairn much better. I never put this down to a bug. Just thought it was liver-failure.
Work tomorrow as well. Bugger.

Caught something on Christmas Eve. Bit of a fever then, felt detatched, have since recovered from that but still have a headache and no appetite.

It's a s***, I only get ill on the holidays.

I've had this since Friday, took some vicks first defence and I feel it's just angering the germs that are festering and it's going to be on b****** of a cold when it hits home. I have all the symptoms of a cold except the stuffed up nose, its quite surreal.

Well I made it into work today having thought an early night would put me right.  I had my head over the toilet this morning and that's really unusual for me as I tend to have cast iron guts. Picked me up some milk of magnesia liquid from the Four Lanes and just done in to cap fulls. One of the lasses here at work is in stiches because apparently that is the maximum amount that you should not exceed in 48 hours.  That was 20 mins ago and all is ok...so far.....I think it's a bloke thing i.e. blokes that are ill, very rarely read the instructions regarding dosage of medicines or tablets, we just tend to (or I do) grab the bottle and take a massive swig.  Anyway, works for me.......

Update: 40 minutes into my slight milk of magnesia overdose and whilst my backend is holding up fine...ish though I now feel like I've got severe liver failure occuring.  The spasms I'm getting in my guts seemed to have increased thrice-fold and the pain is steadily worsening.  I have one or two small beads of sweat forming on my brow and my sphincter is now contracting as if it has a mind of its own.  I suspect this is the calm before the storm.....I'm desperately trying to think of a way in which I can reverse or neutralise the amount I've swigged.......

I've heard Syrup of Figs is a great way to counteract loose bowels. A good swig of that should see you right.

Feeling a lot better today, i think i was 24 hours behind my kid, so the back end of the illness approaches, which means its ok to get p*ssed now.

Finally!!!

Have a heart. This is a posting detailing the account of a chap carrying some severe illness yet somehow struggling to get through the day.  1 hour and 30 minutes in and the pain relief has not eased off, in fact I'm at my desk now, typing this, and where I'd normally be sitting with my back upright and legs bent at 90 degrees, I'm now in fact slightly more bent over at a 45 degree angle. This help to slow the spasms down a little but I can feel a little force on the rear end. Not sure what that could be but whatever it is, I'm not controlling it......The toilets are too far away to get there if there is to be some kind of explosion within a 20 second period. The beads of sweat are have tripled in number and size. I'm bloody frightened to even let a silent one off for fear of the damn breakin its banks........No sh*t. I'm in trouble and this place is surrounded by women, nice women.  My whole street credability is on the line here.......I wished I'd never gave up exercising I tell you and I know I'd make the toilet in time but right now, my ample frame will never manage it.....even the disabled bogs, which are nearer, require that you open three doors just to get there......

Honestly?  Dark brown chap. Dark brown......with a fine stripe......there is no danger of being able to see any soiled boxers through these babies. Probably the best bit of planning I've done all day really. Bloody good suit to ruin like.....

Honestly?  Dark brown chap. Dark brown......with a fine stripe......there is no danger of being able to see any soiled boxers through these babies. Probably the best bit of planning I've done all day really. Bloody good suit to ruin like.....

In which case, I'd relax your posture, sit back and just let it happen. Enjoy the moment.

Other than this stomach bug that's been hitting the nation there seems to be a lot of 'cold' about.  It's slowly attacking my immune system right now and I'm sweating (that a good sign?).  December and January are always the worst times of the year (or at least the most common I think) to pick up a virus.  Working in an office makes me feel ten times worse and it's days like this that I really wished I'd worked outside.......
I'm laying it on thick now so can see a couple of days off any time soon. After all it's just not right to come into work loaded with cold just so you can infect your colleagues right?

Something wrong with me anyway.

I've had a stinging sort of pain deep in my throat the last two days or so, this morning I said f*** it and stuck my fingers down my throat and proceeded to spew out what seemed to be concentrated orange juice, had the taste in my mouth afterwards and it looked exactly the same consistency as juice generally does, not broken down at all.

I had a glass of it monday morning, is there any way it could somehow just have been sitting in some random pocket in my throat or something?

Ill again.

Sweating like pig, burning up, but feeling cold, throat full of razor blades, horrible dry cough that nearly kills me, pounding headache made worse by the cough, full of aches and pains, eyes hurting especially with daylight. Oh and a stomach sound like its going to explode and ear ache in both ears but thankfully they swap over to give me a break for a bit.

Need to get my arse into gear and get to uni for an interview thing today, no choice on the matter really.

Sure me little laddy brings back all sorts of diseases from nursery and inflicts them on me. My ill rate has quadrupled since he's been going there.

Don't think I've ever been as ill as I am right now, had a chesty cough start yesterday which became a fully fledged cold. Stupidly went for a drink yesterday in said state and managed one bottle before my chest started to ache, so did the sensible thing and left to walk home. This raised further problems when I had to stop every couple of minutes to catch my breath, and I also realised my legs and back were aching. Eventually got in and went straight to bed, where I lay wheezing for about 3 hours before having those damn "Cold dreams" where some crazy s*** happens and you have no idea what is going on. And now its 6 in the f***ing morning.

Had a virus a few weeks ago. Got up to go to work as normal and then when I was there, had a feeling I was going to be sick. I went home early and sure enough was sick a few times. I would also get the shivers randomly. Days later I could hardly eat anything as I felt I was going to be sick again everytime. It took about 5 days but I was fine after a good meal.

5 may have been an exaggeration. However, the last time I had a day off work (well, school) on the sick was when I was about 14.

I just never get ill. No idea what the secret is... I don't particularly eat healthy. I'd say my fitness is above average but far from superb. Drinking habits are fairly normal... I do take multi-vits and fish oil twice a day though, which I suppose helps. And I also meditate occasionally, but I doubt that really does much for your physical health (despite claims to the contrary). So in answer to your question; I don't know. I'm obviously just a superior being :snod:

I'm very rarely sick either, can't remember the last time I was.
I really don't eat healthy at all, I pretty much never eat any vegetables and I don't take any vitamin-pills, and I generally eat anything that's not good for you.
It was great in school, because I could take "sick-days" from time to time when I just couldn't be arsed to go to school without ever being even suspected of truancy.

I've not slept for 3 nights due to toothache. Went to an emergency dentist yesterday who gave me an emergency filling, even though I'm convinced I either need root canal treatment or the tooth taken out. If they don't sort it out tomorrow I'm gonna get a pair of pliers and a big bottle of whiskey.

I have a wisdom tooth that's about stuck about half way out. Wake up with pus and blood in my mouth every morning.

Hopefully it'll get itself all the way out soon so I can just go to the dentist and have the damn thing removed.

At least you can get to sleep in the first place!!

4 nights now without sleep. Had a bit of an out of body experience last night which was a bit odd to say the least. Finally getting to see the dentist again at 6.30 tonight, so got high expectations of a fantastic kip later!

Try not to dislodge the blood clot that forms in the socket or else it'll hurt more. It'll probably knack when the anaesthetic wears off (mine did) but just be prepared to take paracetamol and ibuprofen every 4 hours. Good luck.

Some of this thread makes me feel a little better. I've got ear ache, sore throat, blocked nose ans headaches round the clock.  Started Boxing Day and every day progessively gets worse.  Today is the last day I stop in.  I'm gonna get f***ing smashed out of my skull on JD, just to ease the pain. I've been a prisoner in my own home and I hate it when the missus starts pottering about, I feel compelled to help purely based on the fckin hacky look she gives me as I' m laid up ill on the chair.  Then she denies scowling.........

5.5cm x 4.5cm according to the doctor who "doesn't know what it is, but it might just be fatty tissue".

Got to go back in 10 days, but she says it's too big to take out if there's no need. Got some anti-biotics to see if it takes the swelling down.

Whilst you're around, I also asked her about hay-fever and asthma, as I go back every year and they never give me any help. I explained that I've tried everything, from herbal remedies to all of the over the counter stuff. She printed me an article off the internet! to explain what hayfever was, and it's only when I asked her about injections that she started to take me seriously. She says I can go back when the hayfever starts and they'll think about letting me have the injections.

Do you think it's worth it? I think it's better than having to take days off work ill.

It's definitely worth reading up on and giving it serious consideration. I don't know a great deal about it but I'll see what I can find out for you. Have you ever heard of or tried the 'eating local honey' thing for hayfever? If not, I'll get Marc to reply to you later on cos it's worked wonders for him.

I've been off sick for 2 weeks, today was my first day back to work. First time I've taken sick leave in 3 years.  First time I've ever had to get a sick note from a doctor! (which I will come back to).

I was signed off with a URTI.  After googling that it's a Upper Respiratory Tract Infection.

Basically I started off with a fever at night, sweating.  Next came a sore throat and cough, followed up by a pain in my right lung.  A few more days came a mother of all colds and awful sinus pains.  The sinus pains were unbearable.  It felt like someone had taken a hammer to my face, real nasty pains around the eye socket, above the eye brows in particular.  I had to caine Sudafed, Ibuprofen and Paracetamol in suitable doses to keep it at bay.  As the days went on my cold cleared up, cough got better (still here now a bit, the cold brings it out and the night time does too for some reason), fevers also went and the pain in lung went away.  It was the damn sinus pains that stayed! I would wake up each morning in agnoy and have to run downstairs and chuck pain killers down my throat and sit the next 45 mins out in pain before the pain killers kicked in.  That would sort it out, but I just felt tired and drained afterwards.  I was also sick 4 times and coughed up a little bit of blood on two occasions over the two weeks.  Nice.

I finally went back to work today as I felt better over last two days (plus doctors note ran out), still have minor sinus pains so have take pain killers, but only small amounts now.

Never had a sickness last this long before.  The time off was nice, but it got f***ing boring being at home on my own once I exhausted all the usual types of home entertainment.

Back to the doctor, well... after being ill for 8 days and having 4 of those off as sick from work, I rang the doctors for an emergency appointment.  The doctor called me back and I started to tell my symptons.  I only got half way through them before he cut in and said "yeah yeah, just come in pick a sick note, I will leave it at reception..." I just said "urrr, ok.  Thank you" - I was ill and had not much fight in me, but was kinda dissappointed in the dismissive nature of the doc.  I didn't feel right for him to just palm me off on to sick leave.  Fair do's if I need time to recover, but I was worried that I had something possible worse and I didn't want to take the time and then find myself still feeling the same come the end of the doctors note.  If doctors are that easy to get sick notes out of I bet lots of people could just ring up and qoute typical symptons and get away with a sick note despite being well. lol - Not that I'd do that, my job takes the first two sick days pay out of my money, so I lost over £150 for the first two days of my two weeks off!

Oh well... there's my sickness story for this thread.  Hope I don't have to contribute to it again really!

At the moment I have one of the worst cold's I've ever had, my nsoe is running yet is still blocked, how is that even possible? Just how much mucus can one man make for f*** sake, hopefully healthier times are to follow.

Been Uni working like a bitch so I can go out this weekend, and fate/god/some c*** has decided to give me man flu on the eve of me going out to see the lads, first time in months were all together.

I'm fuming. Woke up this morning and fort he second day running the concrete fairy has dropped her load down my throat making breathing feel like an Olympic sport that i'm coming in last at.

Haven't got the headache that I had yesterday, but it's only a matter of time, hungover before I even go out, will probably have to take flu tablets and s**** all day, I really shouldn't even be thinking about going out in this state... :weep:

I got the flu jab at work a couple of months back.  Had to laugh at the info leaflet we got with it - "Potential side-effects - headache, aches and pains, fatigue, sore throat".  Thanks for that.  Thanks for giving me the flu to stop me from getting the f***ing flu you stupid b******s.

Anyway, i was over the flu-vaccine flu after about a week.  This week though i've had a really sore throat.  Currently havving a couple of "medicinal" whiskies to try and kill it off.

Me, man flue. Woke up the other night shivering with a very high temp. Next morning (day after boxing day) I was all aches and pains with a mother of all headaches. Best cure? Get off your arse and out into the cold. I was dying on my feet or thought I was but today, all I have is a runny nose and a bit of a cough. I have a good immune system. Extremely hot baths and manning it up is the key I reckon. I tried the whole resting thing and I just lay there shivering, coughing and blowing my nose while repeating "I'm dying."

Ever since I got back from the Spurs game I've been feeling rough, mainly muscle pains and a slight cough. Had to go home from work early yesterday.  Missed work today as it's developed in to full blown flu, I'm in bed most of the time trying to sleep.  Got a blocked nose and very bad sinus pains.  Feel dizzy and sick at times too.  f***ing hate this s***, not had it for yonks either. Hope it goes fast.

Whilst I'm sorry you're in hospital overnight, you really could be there for far worse reasons than investigation. My (36 year old) friend had a heart attack on Christmas day and has had to have a cardiac stent. Hopefully they'll find the reason for the high heart rate and be able to treat it, and then your 'torment' will hopefully be over.

Just a few words to say thanks to those of you who sent your kind wishes. At the time of writing that post above I was pretty much s*** scared, having a heart rate of 180BPM (whilst on beta blockers) as well as arrhythmia - it may have seemed a bit melodramatic me saying it was 'torment' but when the only sound you can hear is the irregular pounding of your own heart, and the fearful thoughts rattling around your own head, I'd say 'torment' is a pretty accurate description of what it's like.

Anyway, I'm back home now - although sore as hell as I've had a camera tube shoved down my throat so they could have a look at the heart close up  and they have basically given me an electric shock to get my heart back into rhythm plus loads of drugs to slow it down to a sensible beat.

Folks - here's the no s*** Sherlock moment but excuse me stating the obvious: the NHS is nothing short of f***ing amazing. Nurses truly are angels, and whilst some of the docs can occasionally be a bit up themselves, they certainly know their s***. Now all I have to do is thin my blood out with rat poison (Warfarin) for the rest of my life and more importantly get fit and stay healthy.

Echo IP's sentiments. :thup:

What you say about the NHS is particularly pertinent. Was visiting in hospital a lot at the tail end of last year, and spending quite a bit of time there really helps you to appreciate the work people do. I for one think we should be incredibly thankful for what we have in this country.

I've been having abdominal pain for the past few days so went down to the hospital last night. The doc reckons I've got gastroenteritis so I've got some lansoprazole tablets.

Hopefully them tablets will get rid of the pain.

The former can be sorted out with just eating more healthily. The latter isn't something you should be messing about with though, mate. Get them checked by a doctor soon. :nods:

Just a few words to say thanks to those of you who sent your kind wishes. At the time of writing that post above I was pretty much s*** scared, having a heart rate of 180BPM (whilst on beta blockers) as well as arrhythmia - it may have seemed a bit melodramatic me saying it was 'torment' but when the only sound you can hear is the irregular pounding of your own heart, and the fearful thoughts rattling around your own head, I'd say 'torment' is a pretty accurate description of what it's like.

Anyway, I'm back home now - although sore as hell as I've had a camera tube shoved down my throat so they could have a look at the heart close up  and they have basically given me an electric shock to get my heart back into rhythm plus loads of drugs to slow it down to a sensible beat.

Folks - here's the no s*** Sherlock moment but excuse me stating the obvious: the NHS is nothing short of f***ing amazing. Nurses truly are angels, and whilst some of the docs can occasionally be a bit up themselves, they certainly know their s***. Now all I have to do is thin my blood out with rat poison (Warfarin) for the rest of my life and more importantly get fit and stay healthy.

Bit late to the party, but great news :thup:

Agreed about the NHS. Saved my dad's life, owe them everything.

It's been lingering on like.  Most symptoms have f***ed off but I've been left with really bad sinuses, feeling like my head's gonna burst like that guy off scanners.  Was doing the old head over the steam bowl thing which helped me get a load of horrible s*** out of my head and chest a bit.  Lass suggested I try sommat called Sinutab, so I picked a pack of those up and f***ing hell.  It's sorted my sinuses out a treat but I feel like some little radgie buzzing on a wrap of speed  :kasper:

I've got a stupid cold/flu. It's fairly alright when I'm taking Ibuprofen, just a sore throat, runny nose and general fatigue; but when it wears off I've got shivers and pains all over. Funny enough, I dislike the idea of taking tablets all the time. Was fine at work, but now at home I feel I shouldn't. It's really illogical, because why feel like crap if I can feel alrightish, but something inside me doesn't like feeling good if I'm not well. :idiot2:

I'm no doctor (shocked?) but it might be worth getting someone to go out and get you some glucose powder, you can get a box in Superdrug for about £1.50, it will help restore glucose levels (energy) and also contains vitamin C.

I've never actually had the sensation of going out of both ends at the same time, but having now endured it, it's safe to say I don't want to experience it again!  Certainly led to a very romantic night round my other half's when I was going to the toilet every 30 minutes for about a 6 hour period haha.

Some horid fever has just randomly kicked in today, this is the worst I've felt in years and I'm feeling massively sorry for myself but so glad I never had it through Christmas.

Made a massive chair out of pillows and blankets so I can sit at a comfortable angle to watch the tele, it's mint.

Getting a bit fed up with being sick every Xmas. Just at the end of a heavy cold, last night my throat flared up again. Hoping it's going to be ok tomorrow, but is there anything people recommend? Anything I should avoid? I've barely drunk over Xmas and I'd love a beer or something, but I know that would be agony.

I'm tempted by sherry, as that was a Xmas tradition me and my Mum used to share on Xmas morning. I know whiskey and honey should be good, but the only bottle I have is very nice indeed, and I want to open it when I can actually enjoy it.

Xmas cold/flu/virus just keeps coming round, mutating so it'll get you again. Think I've had it about 4 times in December, currently up now because my head is pulsing due to blocked nose etc...just never ending.

Anyone else find they get ill soon after meeting a new women/man? Was beaten down with a cold, then sinusitis, a cold again then mild flue last Spring soon after hooking up. I've now been with this new lass for three weeks, and been feeling shoddy for four days now. Cold symptoms and coughing all over again. I've not been ill any other times.

Maybe it's just coincidence. Maybe it's the sudden rise in alcohol intake weakening my immune system?

Stupid f***ing virus kicked in last night, out of nowhere. Haven't been able to sleep a wink, sweating like a b****** and hallucinating in the middle of the night that people were in my house coming to get my organs.

And I was due to go to London today for a mates birthday and new year. Well and truly out the window now.

Had a really weird spell last night, suddenly felt really queasy and shaky and was waiting for the moment where I finally spewed but it never happened and instead I ended up feeling okay. I had myself convinced I was coming down with a bug. I absolutely HATE throwing up though so I think I make myself 10 times worse with the panic/dread.

Feel fine today, thankfully. Probably just my body protesting about the amount of food I've eaten lately. :blush:

This, plus the entire family keeps getting it like a Round Robin. Had to take the little one into ER day before yesterday, then she was sick everywhere yesterday, then I was sick everywhere after we'd finally got them down, then no sleep for anyone last night. Had a life-defining exam due this morning that I had to postpone to Thursday - and the bloody virus had better hold off from tomorrow till then.

Worst I've ever been. Started tuesday afternoon at work, few stomach pains and cold symptoms picking up,wednesday morning full blown noro viryus thing apparently and what can only be described as flu thrown in for good measure.

Didn't feel so bad through the day yesterday until half 8 9ish last night, my nose has been 100% blocked for 3 days, no shift...just can't breathe through it at all, the all of a sudden the back of my mouth on the top swells up like a plum along with my tonsils, scary s*** as i was now struggling to breathe through my mouth and its hard to talk. Had to get to A+E at the qe in that weather yesterday as well. Then transfered to mackemsville for some dude to cut my tonsil and drain it.

Wonderful few days,to think I was actually hopefull of getting to the match as well.

In May I was admitted in the hospital...

Night fevers, slight pain in belly, and an abscess in my right side (not too serious)

Just a ruptured appendix  :lol: :lol: :lol:

doctors were like "that is already ruptured you have to stay here" and I was like "no way"

after 20 seconds I said "ok then"

"no way"

"its fine"

then I said: "will you stay?"

doctor: "yes, I work here"

eventually I stayed.

I spent 2 weeks in a hospital bed on antibiotics, no EATING AT ALL. I lost 10 kg.

Only had my appendix removed 5 months after that.

It was so serious that I still have phantom pains.

The nurses were hot though.

There were some crazy old folks lying next to me.

One of them was a funny guy.

He would stand on his feet, while smiling, then he would take his clothes off, started to p*ss in the middle of the room, while laughing is arse off...

When you're under anaesthetic your body loses a degree of heat per half hour so we put warming blankets on you which a tube blows hot air into. That's all!

Well the flu didn't f*** off .. I had a hot Bath after the game. Only to find myself shivering like you wouldn't believe, teeth clattering hard for 20 minutes. couldnt ecen get out the bath i was shaking that much. After an hour of sitting in normal room temperature, my body got its s*** sorted, but it was pretty scary. I just had 2 hours sleep and woke up in a rediculous pool of sweat. I'm soaking! Ahh FFS.

I've really been looking forward to a few days off work and the Benfica/mackem matches (I'm not back in until Tuesday) and now I seem to be coming down with a cold. I've got a ridiculously scratchy throat, sore ears and a runny nose. I couldn't tell you the last time I had a cold - it must have been at least a year ago, so I find this incredibly annoying.

It must disappear overnight. IT MUST.

Had a sore throat all morning - gone into the bogs at work to have a look in the mirror. Tonsils covered in geet big white spots. Googled tonsillitis - looks the same.

Going to the emergency walk in clinic after work. Joy. Can not wait to spend 3 hours queuing with a load of sick people.

Absolutely f***ed with a pretty hefty dose of the flu. Been feeling like s*** since last Friday, but I think it peaked yesterday. Was just completely lethargic all day, and spent the whole night shivering and sweating buckets. Thankfully, I can move again today, but I still feel like someone has a hold of me round the throat.

Feel you pain. Caught flu on the last day of my holiday. Plane journey home was awful, all that s*** to deal with, water £2 per 330ml, and then the landing which with blocked sinuses felt left my head was in a vice. Had no hearing till Sunday. Then me dad f***ed the taxis so spent nearly an hour waiting around in 4c temps (from 27s for two weeks) which has completely wrecked me.

Starting to feel a bit more normal now, feel like I've got a bad cold with some shivering and cold sweats, before that I thought I may need to go to hospital s*** was getting pretty rough at times.

My ring piece is in bits now, it's had so much to deal with recently it's become engorged and inflamed and is protruding out of my insides a little bit.
Hosed it down in the shower earlier which helped a little bit but it's still pulsing away like nobody's business at the minute.

Broken foot update.

I have what appears to be a "jones fracture". After 3 or 4 days i should have been able to put weight on my foot using the rubber shoe attachment they give you for your cast, it has taken a month to get to that point which sugests a "non-union". Had i been a pro footballer there would have been no f***ing around, they'd have opened me up on day one and put a screw in the bone. The approach now is just leave it, which means up to FIVE months in plaster. :(

Had a sore throat and swollen glands for a few days but nothing unusual and then last night at about 11pm my body went mental, temperature sky rocketed and i had uncontrollable shakes on and off for a few hours. I've had very little sleep as kept waking up in hot sweats,  I just feel so weak and have no energy, never really felt like this before, especially not from what I thought was just a cold and a minor sore throat. Strange.

Had horrible runs for over a week now, then last night woke up feelingly horribly bloated and started throwing up while on the toilet. Led to an interesting Chinese hospital experience (there's no GP, straight to hospital), but luckily the instant throwing around of the word 'endoscopy' in broken english didn't lead to anything. Surprised it's first time I've thrown up here tbh.

Well I was pretty ill, for the last 3 years really but I just got home from hospital yesterday with a new kidney. Had a transplant early friday morning last week and have a brand new lease of life. New kidney, which came from a donor involved in a fatal car accident, is performing excellently according to the Dr.

Big shout out to all those who are registered donors.

In the same ward were people with new hearts and even double lung transplants, amazing experience. The Transplant Institute at the Freeman is excellent, as is the NHS.

Feeling sorry for myself as I broke my left hand and dislocated my baby finger last Sunday. Had to have surgery yesterday and have three metal pins put in through two fingers and the knuckle to hold it all together.

I'm right handed but regardless its wiped out so much of my life at the moment. It's the little things with eating, getting dressed etc. that p*ss you off the most. Been signed off work for 6 weeks, I get full company sick pay as a senior manager at a company I've been with for 13 years, but can see myself going back in next week if GP allows it. Pain hasn't been too bad until this morning, ouch! On the Co-Codamol too control it now though.

I'm having a seriously hard time at the minute when it comes to sleeping.

This has been going on for a couple of weeks. Things were / are cool at home and at work so I can't put it down to stress, but some nights I get no sleep at all. Last night I went for a drive at 0330 and ended up doing about 150 miles. I still couldn't sleep when I got home, now I'm at work absolutely f***ed.

I'm gonna go to the docs on Monday but I know he'll just give me diazies and they're hopeless.

Felt off my food for the past week or so, not really sure what's up. I'm eating but whenever I do, I never feel like eating the whole meal. I'll have about half / two-thirds then feel a bit iffy. Given my appetite is something I nearly never lose, it seems a bit odd. If it meant I was just getting full quicker and therefore means I'm eating less, then that isn't a bad thing, but I feel iffy and I don't know why. Which is annoying.

Also sleep has been quite fragmented due to the heat. Window wide open but isn't doing much. Dunno if that's contributing to things, but for whatever reason I've felt off colour generally the past week and it's irritating.

tl;dr, man up.

sounds like kidney or gall stones tbh, especially the pain between the shoulder blades and the weird stomach pains

Quote
A characteristic symptom of gallstones is a "gallstone attack", in which a person may experience intense pain in the upper-right side of the abdomen, often accompanied by nausea and vomiting, that steadily increases for approximately 30 minutes to several hours. A patient may also experience referred pain between the shoulder blades or below the right shoulder. These symptoms may resemble those of a "kidney stone attack". Often, attacks occur after a particularly fatty meal and almost always happen at night, and after drink.

Aye, I didn't either which was weird, I just kept retching but nowt would come up. But the wife had it from both ends for 7. Hours solid on the same day as me. It's a rank bug.

It's not fitting that exactly like, but some similarities.

Honestly feels like an upset stomach but one that's not resolving itself by evacuating somehow.

I'm back home Wednesday morning so week get straight to the docs if it's no better. Internet refers to pain a lot, severe pain, which I can't really say I've experienced so hopefully this is mild and is going to fix itself. Will keep an eye on things and watch what I eat the next few days as well.

Yeah man, was weird I took omaprazole for the 5 days and it's been gold ever since. Thinking the ache between the shoulder blades was unrelated now, probably due to how I was lounging on the couch watching TV at night. All seems good thanks for asking man :thup:

I'm f***ed at the moment with cartilage in my knee. I can run and exercise on it but anything involving explosive moment (i.e. football) I'm screwed. It's a persistent problem and has re-occurred. Initial prognosis when I originally got injured was 6-8 weeks but it's a recurring thing, it's not something that seems to heal magically. Need to get it sorted ASAP.

When I originally did it I thought I'd permanently f***ed my knee given what a horrible cracking noise it made (leg just completely gave way when I shifted pressure from one side to another playing football.) Not a nice experience.

Sorry, not much help. :lol:

I did some cartilage in my left-knee, required surgery and 4 months of rehab. Was horrible, basically what happened was cartilage loosened and acted like a rat in my knee. So I had loose piece of cartilage that locked my knee at times and made it impossible to move. Could even feel it at times as a bump on my knee and could push it back in. 

Remember first time I went to the doctors with a locked knee and he was going to do the standard procedure of movement of shifting the foot from one side to the other and when he did it, it unlocked. Horrible pain, but at least he knew straight away what it was.

Yeah, with that said, good luck :lol:

ManDoon my friend just ruptured his and had surgery, he was given 10 months more or less of rehab. (although he plays football professionally so maybe the want to make extra sure he won't do it again)

My eight year old was being sick at night at the start of the xmas break.  She was fine through the day, and is fine when she went to sleep, but would wake through the night to be sick.  This happened for a few days, but we were told it was a bug.  She was fine over xmas and new year, but the last three nights she has been being sick again.  Eats and drinks fine and is feeling fine all day, but it always seems to be around 1.30am where she is up being sick.  She says it's when she lies flat that she starts to feel sick. It's got me a little worried to be honest, so back to the docs. Anyone had or had a little one with similar symptoms?

Been prescribed it by my consultant to try and limit the never problems in my back.

Was working on 1 x 100mg capsules three times a day in January. Moved up to 300mg capsusles yesterday, only managed to take one in the morning and felt like a complete and utter space cadet for the rest of the day.

Not sure if I fancy persisting with that especially as I will have to take the 300mg capsule three times a day. I know initially you can expect some form of a reaction but actually terrified to take one again.  :o

Did the doc give any indication of whether you should just go straight to 3x300 or are you building up slowly? (e.g. 1x300, 2x100 for a week, 2x300, 1x100 for a week then onto the full dose). I'm not familiar with that medication but it seems a hefty increase so it's no wonder it's knocked you sideways a bit.

Had a few unusual symptoms over the past couple of months, went to the doctor who recommended blood tests and it turns out I've got vitamin B12 and B9 deficiencies, cause unknown, which I'd better get sorted out or it'll potentially lead to nerve damage, dementia and ultimately brain damage ???  At least it explains why my requirement for sleep has gone from five hours to ten hours a night since September/October, why I'm burning through my inhalers despite my asthma having been controlled for years, and why I sometimes just run out of energy unexpectedly when I'm up in the hills.  Funny old world :undecided:

Nah, mine are all over. Sometimes on the sides. Sometimes in the back, etc. IT migrates around throughout the day.

Got to go for an eye exam to rule that out but apparently I'm suffering from migraines. Been getting lightening flashes in my vision which are at the least very distracting, along with the usual headache symptoms but not always at the same time. The flashes happen around 20-30 times a day, at least.

I also think the way I deep sleep is at fault, just can't get it right with pillows and elevation.

Anyway the last two days I've had man flu, which has sent the migraine symptoms in to overdrive. Some crazy pressure in my head atm. Had to take off my first sick day at work for 18months, felt dead guilty, must be getting old. In bed now trying to get an early night for going back tomorrow.

I managed to drive a screwdriver into my thumb at work. It wouldn't stop bleeding so I had to put tape really tight around the base of the thumb to try and cut the blood off then tape on the wound but it kept falling off cause it was too wet. Then there was blood all over the floor so I was trying to mop it up before anyone seen. What a mare :lol: I think it needs stitching too.

In and out of the doctor's for the last two months with constant headaches. The bright side is that I actually have health insurance now.

Cluster headaches? Or just like me, I have headaches way to often because I fall asleep on one pillow but wake up on 10 with my neck stiff and head aching as hell. Probably should put the pillows in the other rooms and just leave one for me in the room.

not cluster headaches, but it's all over the place. Migrates from the top and back to the sinuses. My sinuses are always blocked up as well. I am starting to suspect that it may be a perfect storm of sinus problems, the trap muscle injury I suffered several months ago, and the stress from my buddy dying.

What symptoms do you get with your attacks? My googling the other day led me to concerns about my gallbladder based on some of the localised pains and discomfort I was getting. I think I'm just being a hypochondriac though.

What symptoms do you get with your attacks? My googling the other day led me to concerns about my gallbladder based on some of the localised pains and discomfort I was getting. I think I'm just being a hypochondriac though.

First time I had everything except ikterus (yellowing of the skin and eyes). Basically I had a fever along with a radiating pain in the upper right quadrant in the stomach that got worse with times and lasted several hours, constipation during this time and then clay coloured stool day after. Ended up in the emergency room because the pain was unbearable and I had no idea what it was. This was around 15-16 months ago.
Second time I basically started crying, but it was only the pain and I couldn't sleep for a night. Basically a cramping pain on the upper mid-right side below the ribcage same type of pain as the first time. Got worse with time and all.

Then last week I had a milder one but it accompanied with unable to eat for days and the pain radiated to the right-back side as well. Had a flu as well the following days which only made it all worse. Last week though my whole stomach was in pain as what ever put in my mouth gave me enormous stomach ache. And then last night same but applied a heat pack and drank some lemon water and paracetamol and it was relieved in about 40-50mins. The thing is it probably went on a bit before I woke up as well as I remember feeling a discomfort in the stomach but was too tired to care until a certain point where I had to stand up and get something.

I've had ultra-sounds and all types of blood tests before, even made an gastroscopy (which btw is the most uncomfortable thing I'll ever do, except if I someday have to do a colonoscopy). Anyways, ultra-sound found one larger stone but no other stones whatsoever, and they think that is what might cause the trouble. Problem I have is that it should've been gone by now if all these attacks have been due to it or I'm just unlucky that it's blocking the duct and instead of going out coming back in again.

Ask for an ultra-sound scan. Really smooth, as it takes no more than a minute or so and the ultra-sound scan will see if you have any gallstones.

If it's better the infection's probably gone - with H. pylori if you don't get it all it'll just grow back and nothing will change.  The sphincter at the top of my stomach is just broken, so any acid was able to get up in my oesophagus.  I'd tried sorting my diet, quitting drinking, everything - turns out there was actually nothing I could have done.

I still have it too and it's getting worse.

I had a head cold in early December, it went but the chest cough stayed. Since then I've coughed so hard and from so deep that I've either made myself sick, or damaged my throat- which then gives me another cold.

I went to the doctors on Tuesday and now I need to go for an xray because they said that I'm all clear and it's more likely a virus than an infection.

I've tried simple linctus, benelyn, hot milk with honey and orange juice, along with endless amounts of vicks and soothers, lockets and strepsils. I'm now onto my 4th cold that it's given me and I just want it to f*** off.

I have a prescription for antibiotics but I'd rather see what my xray says first.

It won't, but it can rule out bacterial infection.  The lungs look different when infected, so an X-ray can tell you if this is the case.

If you have some sort of respiratory viral infection you would expect to see some changes in the X-ray of the lungs. It would be interpreted in the context of other indicators - for example, wheezing might suggest some component of reactive airway disease. If we have a sick child in, they might get blood and sputum samples (to check for bacterial infection) and/or nasal/throat swabs to check for common viruses such as RSV or Flu A.

I've had my x-ray and everything's clear. I got told to take simple linctus and if that didn't work after a week to start antibiotics. So I've taken the course of antibiotics and although my cough went when I was taking them, it would just come back.

I've been back to the doctors and they've tested everything and everything is apparently okay. I have to give them a sample of whatever I cough up and take it back.

I've now had this cough for 3 months and it's driving me absolutely mental. Even when I'm well, it's there, but then I cough so much that I f*** my throat and end up with a cold. I'm totally bunged up with snot as well. Absolutely sick of my life, just want it to f*** off forever.

Before that, every time I laid down, I'd go into such a coughing fit that it sometimes caused bleeding or vomiting, even though my stomach was usually settled before that.

It's certainly a relief when you get the all clear. I had heart tests because of massive palpitations and it was very reassuring to know nothing was found.

Sounds awful though, look after yourself.

My guess is I was probably feeling faint for some random reason, didnt eat right or something, and because it was in such a public place (Tesco) I probably did panic. Can't even describe the fear I had in Tesco when it started though, felt absolutely dreadful. Nice to know alls good with me as well at the same time having got a full mot in hospital.

Could you have been dehydrated? I sometimes get a bit lightheaded but necking a big glass of water seems to do the trick.

So had another gallbladder attack at the weekend and ended up in the emergency. Meeting a surgeon soon to plan date for it's removal. About f***ing time, worst pain I've ever felt in these 5 or 6 gallbladder attacks I've had the past 18 months or so.

Having gallbladder taken out tomorrow morning and bricking it a bit as i've never had surgery under general anaesthetic before. I never got to the stage of having severe attacks like you're describing there, but first felt the discomfort after eating some bbq chicken with skin on it. Stayed with me for a week before I got it checked out. Ultrasound confirmed 1 small gallstone and a small benign polyp as well. I had 2nd and 3rd and 4th opinions and it was unanimously recommended that I get the gb removed entirely to avoid risk of tiny stone moving into the ducts and causing further complications, as well as getting rid of the polyp.

Not at all fussed about pain or recovery, but I can't help feeling this anxiety about my body being able to handle it all. Or about the doctors knowing what the hell they're doing.

f*** it.

It's one of the most common surgeries performed, very routine, very low chance of any complications. Had mine out two years go. Don't sweat it too much. :thup:

If you've never had an attack it's best you're getting it out before you do. The pain is incredible; as incapacitating as a swift kick to the balls but this time your balls are inside your abdomen and all you can think about is dying for 30-60 minutes.

Thanks lads. Going to see the surgeon in a bit to run through tomorrow's procedure and have a look at my pre-op test results. Hopefully talking directly to the man himself as well will help to calm me down further. I've been waiting 3 and a half weeks to do this, and with no symptoms to speak of once the initial discomfort subsided, it's just been a bit of a headfuck.

Anyone have any experience with acid reflux? I got diagnosed by a doctor earlier this year whilst in hospital waiting on a brain scan so at the time it wasn't much of a concern for them or me. I didn't respond to the initial medication so had to go to the GP after that course and get something else, which I've been on ever since. I've not really had the problem explained to me though and the GP just keeps telling me it should sort itself out, so I'm kind of in the dark about the whole thing. Some days I'm fine, others it feels like my stomach is on fire and I'm bringing acid up to the point my tongue is white.

Is it something I should ask to see a specialist about? I'm not even sure if there's anything you can do other than the medication I'm on, how long it lasts etc but I was initially led to believe it should have only been a couple of weeks.

What are you taking for it? I get reflux and have a hiatus hernia, and taking Lansoprazole does the trick for me. I sometimes still feel the reflux but it just feels like liquid instead of lava mixed with acid.

Avoiding coffee and booze could also help, but who can be f***ed with that.

I had chronic acid reflux for years and lived off Rennies before I got it sorted.  I tried all sorts of things, changing my diet, fasting, quitting booze, but nothing worked.  Turns out I have a loose sphincter (yeah yeah) at the top of my stomach which means the acid can get up easily into my oesophagus.  They prescribed me Omeprazole (which stops you producing stomach acid) and it changed my life overnight - I only ever have heartburn now if I forget to take it.

They should definitely be looking at the cause if you've had it a while though - did they test you for H. pylori?

Omeprazole is available over the counter now btw, might be worth giving it a go if you're in pain.
Title: Re: Who's ill?
Post by: Jaqen on Wednesday 28 December 2016, 06:55:46 PM
Cheers chaps. I'm on 20mg of Omerprazole daily, which has helped a lot but hasn't got rid of the problem. I don't get heartburn thankfully my issue is more nausea and stomach related. Before the omerprazole even just having a can of coke would make me throw up, was living of bread and water for a few weeks :lol: Can smoke, drink and eat pretty much anything now without it making it any worse than it is.

Nah Troll, I didn't get tested for anything so that is something I'll definitely ask about :thup:

If you're still getting acid at 20mg, try upping your dose to 40mg and see if that makes any difference.

Would you say your symptoms are like this (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helicobacter_pylori#Signs_and_symptoms)?  Important to get it checked, it can lead to an ulcer if it's left untreated, but antibiotics should be enough to clear it up.

Yep, that seems pretty accurate. Although upon doing some further research so does this:

Quote
If you have an ulcer, you may feel a dull or burning pain in your belly. It may come and go, but you’ll probably feel it most when your stomach is empty, such as between meals or in the middle of the night. It can last for a few minutes or for hours. You may feel better after you eat, drink milk, or take an antacid.

Trying not to jump to any conclusions mind, I'll try and book an appointment for next week.

Cheers again though, had no idea about any of this but it looks like something I should have obviously been tested for.

Ill. A-f***ing-gain. That's like the third time this year already. Can't be off work either as I've had 4 illnesses in past year.

Went to bed on Saturday night, admittedly a little tipsy, but didn't get up until Monday morning. Just such a heavy, groggy feeling that made me just want to sleep whenever I woke. I moved from the bed to the sofa at about 2pm but just slept on there until about 7, when I went back to bed until the morning. Felt a lot better yesterday, not perfect but better. Today is grim, though. If I eat I'll be sick.

Done with this, like.

I had a bad do on Sunday after the match. Me and the wife were totally steaming and I somehow ate cheese, god knows how. Anyways allergic reaction follows, my lips looked like I'd been smacked by Mike Tyson, throat swelled to the point it was hard to breath. Rash everywhere so my skin felt like I wanted to rip it off.

I'm sick as a b****** and the wife (ITU nurse) goes into Florence Nightingale mode, she's checking my heart rate and phoning some lass about possibly needing an ambulance cause I looked like I was gonna go into anaphylactic shock.

Long story short, ten minutes later Florence is snoring her head off and I was up til half three Monday morning shivering, shaking, scratching and generally feeling terrible.

She had a belter sleep apparently.

Following on from my post re an allergic reaction.

Over the last few weeks I've developed really bad itching throughout the day, by bed time it's sometimes so bad I'm riving my skin off, rash everywhere. Initially I put it down to accidentally eating cheese but I've obviously not done that every day for a month.

We we're away on holiday last week where I was drinking beer ever day and it was loads worse. I had few beers last night and by bed time my skin was raw with all the scratching.

So I'm wondering if anyone here has developed gluten intolerance as an adult? Cause I'm now 90% sure that's what it is.

Aye tonsillitis isn't very nice at all, think I've been given antibiotics for it the few times I've had it.

Confirmed by docs today. Improved slightly, still a few days away from being back to reasonable health she reckons. Probably aim to get back to work by Thursday, told work I may lose the entire week, they were great with it, nowt to worry about, but if I can I'd like to get back in before the weekend. Don't want to take the p*ss.

Mind if I don't stop sweating like a pill head raving in the Sahara at random intervals then I think I'll save myself the embarrassment. This is sitting in me boxers next to an open window, not in a sweltering office.  :blush:

Nice to know I've starting the drugs though, 2 week course, 8 pills a day. Hardcore  :lol:

Not an "ilness" as such but I somehow developed a bald patch in my beard (about the size of a penny) and now the hairs in that area keep growing back in bright white. Looks absolutely ridiculous and I've no idea what has caused it.

Has anyone broken a hip before? Had the surgery on Monday and feels like all the muscles in my right thigh are seized up. I can't move it but for wiggling my ankle, it takes two people just to get me from my bed into the chair and back. I'm not expecting it to be better overnight but the insurance and and hospital are talking about me coming home in the next 2 days and I just don't see me managing it in a transfer then 3 hour flight at this rate. :(

I get that when I'm sleep deprived, I always get it more when I've been drinking more but put it down to having less sleep/ disrupted sleep

Got some very bad news at the hospital today. First time they were able to see me since the operation in Spain. I've been told there's less than a 50% chance that the hip will ever heal at all. The way it's broken means the blood flow to that area is going to be reduced and the circulation will be worse, to the point the bone is just going to start to crumble. He said with me being young there's not a lot they can do for me whereas if I was elderly there are other options. Got to come back in 6 weeks to see if there are any signs of improvement but it's stunned me this, was not expecting that at all.

I've got a horrible bad neck at the moment which has been giving me grief on and off for about 4 weeks. It started out just being really stiff but it's painful a lot of the time now. Ibuprofen has helped a little and I've experimented with different pillows/no pillow and just can't find a way to shake it. Probably have to go to the doctors soon but was really hoping it would clear up on its own as it's a chew on getting an appointment/time off work.

henkes gluten update.

So I had three weeks off and felt great, it was a pain in the arse planning meals but the pros way outweighed the cons.
I then dabbled with a little bit of bread, little bit of beer etc trying to isolate the problem. It seems any gluten f***s me up though bread is easily the worst.

Saturday afternoon I made my son Nutella on toast, sliced the toast then licked the Nutella off the knife. 48hrs later I'm up out of bed! A few bread crumbs has wiped the floor with me.

I'm getting tested tomorrow but I don't need a test to tell me what I already know.

Thought I'd do an update.

I had the coeliac blood test, the levels of the stuff they're looking for were raised but not high enough to be a positive result. So now I have to eat two meals a day with gluten in, for six weeks. No joke, sometimes I haven't even finished eaten and I'm literally laying on the floor. f***ed. It's absolutely insane, can't sleep cause my guts are going beserk, but don't have the energy to do anything much. So it's probably a minimum 7 weeks off work, which they're not happy about.

If it's making you ill, why eat it for six weeks?  If you do get an actual diagnosis, all they'll do is tell you not to eat it anymore.

:thup: My partner was recently diagnosed with coeliac and cut out gluten 2 weeks ago. Since then he's felt absolutely perfect, it's amazing the difference it has made. From about 6 s***s a day to not even one every day (I'm guessing, I haven't actually quizzed him on this :lol: but I do clean the toilet in our house)

It makes the world of difference once you find out what's wrong with you with things like that. I was always just dismissed by doctors as having a combination of IBS and Gilbert's Syndrome. As soon as I had a food intolerance test and then pretty much completely cut out cow's milk and eggs (they're not entirely cut out because I don't want them to become allergies) I was basically able to live my life again and put on like 5 stone as well. Prior to that I was nigh on bed ridden in Japan, weighed like 10 stone, and was either in excruciating pain or having opiate withdrawals :lol:

I don't envy anyone who's in that position because trying to work it out through trial and error is such a long, painful, and confusing process. I highly recommend that anyone with problems with food do the York Test, like. It wouldn't really be an exaggeration to say that it saved my life.

That was my feelings a few weeks ago. But the doctor explained about the likely damage already done to my guts etc, the increased risk of all kinds of problems in the future. Once diagnosed I'll get a lot more help, regular testing so colon cancer for example would hopefully be spotted in the very early stages.
Plus I'll also be able to get my kids tested as they're at greater risk. It's s**** but it's the only way forward.

I get this thing about once a year where I have coughing fits and just bring up spit. It's never normally bad, but a couple of years ago it lasted for about 4 months and I kept getting colds because the constant coughing hurt my throat and I'd get a bug. I've had blood taken, the spit analysed, and x-rays done, but nothing was ever found.

This time it's canny terrifying. When I have the coughing fits now, afterwards my throat closes up and I have to gasp for air just to breathe, or my gap reflex kicks in and it's like I'm trying to be sick. I've been sick a couple of times because of it, but normally it's just like wretching. I've had a couple of times on a morning where I've passed out through it as well.

I've been to the doctors and guess what? Nothing. I still have an x-ray to have but it's s**** like.

My doctor reckons it could be whooping cough, despite me having had the injection and not being a Victorian baby.

Been crutch-free for about 10 days and just jogged to the end of the street (it's only about 30-50m but still!). Buzzing. Knee and thigh hurt like f*** but that'll come over time with the extra physiotherapy but after 4 months I finally feel like I could make a full recovery. I see the specialist in a few weeks where they'll X-ray the hip again to see how it's healing because it was expected to take at least a year but feel well on my way. :)

Latest on the hip is it's not healing as it should be.

So I've suffered from a form of eczema (Dyshidrotic I think?) on my hands for years now, but last week it flared up and became infected. Just been told by my doctor that it's the worst eczema infection he's ever seen. On antibiotics for the next week as well as a strong steroid cream, then an appointment with the skin expert next week.

I've never experienced pain like this, and I really don't want to go out in public where people will see my hands. Thought I was gonna end up at A&E last night as had a crazy fever but it settled down.

All in all, it's getting me down. Feel really positive that I'm finally gonna get to see dermatology next week after all these years, but what do I do for the next week when it hurts to even open a door.

Have you tried any dietary changes for your eczema? My wife suffered with all kinds of skin problems pretty much her whole life, used to lie awake at night crying from the pain when it got bad, was horrible to have to watch. She tried so many creams and lotions that she has permanent skin thinning from the steroids.

She eventually fixed it with a plant based diet - literally went away completely within a few weeks and never came back - over 6 years now. Can't recommend highly enough for anyone who hasn't tried it.

Jesus, literally couldn't walk this morning, had to phone in sick. This is not me. Apparently Post-Sepsis Syndrome is a f***ing thing, all the pain and shakes come back and hit you when they feel like it, the b******s.

Honestly would have been a danger to myself if I'd even tried to get in. Everyone's been golden, like, I wasn't right yesterday but people helped me when I asked. I'll give it a go tomorrow, I've got s*** to do.

Bit concerned. Woke up and realised the left side of my head was numb to the touch. Bit hard to describe, feels like something in between having water in the ear and how a dead leg feels without the pins and needles.

Really hoping I've tweaked something in my neck sleeping p*ssed last night as it feels pretty stiff as well. Horrible sensation though.

See what you're saying. If I didn't have the stiffness and tenderness in the left side of my neck I'd be more worried but it feels directly related.

No nothing. That's what's weird. Slightly stiff neck and shoulder on same side. I don't even know anything is wrong until I touch it. Feels very much related to muscles/nerves but I will certainly have a think tomorrow. If I'm not happy will head to a walk in place or whatever.

I'm getting more and more convinced there's something wrong with my knees these days.

Never been to the docs about them in about 15 years since I was a teenager and had Osgood-Schlatter's because I'd feel a bit daft making an appointment because they "just feel a bit weird". That's the only way I can really describe it. They click almost constantly and after 10mins of exercide they just start to get really uncomfortable. Not in a painful way though. Stairs are getting harder. Again, not in a painful way though. It just feels like there's no strength in them anymore.

Is it actually worth seeing a doctor about it or am I just overreacting to entering my 30s?

I have moderate UC, if you're bleeding then I think its more likely to be UC than Crohns. They won't be able to tell until you get scoped unfortunately.

A good probiotic really helped me out. If things are really bad just have a bland diet of mash potato, boiled chicken or fish. Stay away from anything hard to digest, drink plenty of water.

I've had it 9 years now. When it first started I was going to the bathroom 15 times a day or so. I was given prednisone 10 weeks supply and some mesalamine 4.2g a day. I went completely back to normal for 8 months, then flared up on and off for 2 years. Then was fine for ages then had a bad flare up (which was mainly my fault).

For the past 6 years I've been pretty much fine, partly is understanding my body better and growing up and not eating/drinking poorly. I still have days where it's bad but its usually more like IBS than IBD these days. Everyone's symptoms are different though and people respond differently to medication.

I'd say I have had a fairly average experience with UC, it could be a lot worse, but it could have been a lot better so far.

I've got my annual cough yet again. If it turns out to be f***ing whooping cough again I might just end it all.

I’ve been up most of the night coughing like a dafty.

Knee is hurting today, although i can walk on it which surprised me.

After the op the anesthetic made really sick, i had the op at 9am and didn't get let home until 8pm, after being given different fluids to try to stop me being sick. Oh well a few weeks off work i guess.

At the hospital next week because my digestive system's been an absolute mess lately so they're trying to figure out what's wrong with me.

Done the usual thing and used google to convince myself I have bowel cancer.

Having to have a flexible sigmoidoscopy, whatever that is.

I've had a sigmoidoscopy and while it's no walk in the park, it's not that painful.  The worst bit for me was when they pump air into your bowel, it's like the pain you get with a stomach cramp, but only lasts for seconds. Oh and make sure you're not far from a toilet from the day before when you have to take a laxative to clear out your bowel   :bootyshake:

Dehydration. Woke up, stood up out of bed and staggered all over the place before blacking out and waking up in agony on the deck. :lol:

Passed out a few times but the first one is the fall that did the damage. Honestly thought I was gonna die. Apparently I'm very lucky the rib didn't puncture my lung.

Bit on the fence re the knife, since elective surgery is how my mother went. Deliberately went out of my way to go to a different hospital than the one she died in since I can't even begin to set foot in that other place.

Pain. When I wake up they feel like they're folding in. :scared:

If I lie flat it wakes me up within an hour or so. I'm really hoping this is just like, home stretch healing. I will anxiety myself to death if they're like you need surgery. :lol:

I'm essentially pain free until I fall asleep and my body relaxes. Then it's just some f***ing s***.

I def agree with going to a different hospital. As far as elective surgeries go - well I've had a number of good stories in the wife's family about hip/knee replacements and such in the elders :lol:. My guess (and it's a total guess, hopefully you have a surgeon you can trust, get recommendations from people if you can) is that doing it while you're "young" is probably a good idea.

Yeah, dissolvable stitches are still there. It recommends taking ibuprofen for no more than 10 days, which has nearly ended. So it needs to be gone by then!

Stuck in London for a while though as apparently I can't fly for a fair bit of time, but we'll see what happens. Meant to go back home on Thursday.

s***, glad to hear you’re ok. Home, Norway? There not a boat you can get?


I think the Newcastle-Stavanger ferry was the only one, and that's long gone.

Fair enough, thought there might still be on from Ull or some other shithole.

Cheers all. Think the biggest risk has passed for a major stroke to happen now, as I got prescribed blood thinners and I am feeling better. Still really fatigued, and psychologically I'm basically f***ed. I had issues sleeping before this, and the last two nights I've just stayed up until my brain just shut off from tiredness, which is not a good thing following all this. Thankfully I'm not alone, not sure my nerves would manage.

Went for a half hour visit to the hospital about noon today to see a mate. Passed out in the ward, cracked my head off the wall and am still here getting tests. FML.

By the way I didn't die, so that's good depending on your pov.

:lol: Had a bit of discomfort in me gob Tuesday, woke up Wednesday and the lower right quarter of me heed was swollen up like a melon. I thought "that ain't right", but trudged into work thinking it would sort itself out. Said hi to everyone - turns out nobody looks at me, so nobody noticed. Brill. First on the agenda was the weekly criticise newsted meeting, where people lay into me for no good reason. Never been a fan of those, somehow, and I could feel the swelling swelling, so I mentioned it and said I needed to get it sorted. For the first time, they looked at me. "Kinell, yeah, get yourself away. AFTER THIS." So I had to sit there getting pelters for 45 minutes while my head kept ballooning, then send someone an email so they might not whine. Then I f***ed off home.

Phoned my GP. Of course no slots, the doc will ring later. None of this is verbatim, it's my translation. Doc phones two and a half hours later with a "f*** do you want?" attitude. Explained the symptoms and she was "OK, come in three and a half hours, I'll have a look." Cool, I'll look like the f***ing Elephant Man by then.

Wandered into the doc and her initial reaction was "Holy cocksucking Christ, you've been like that all day? f*** me, you're an emergency. I need to make a call to my mate at Maxillofacial surgery at the RVI. s***." (my translation :lol:) During her call I learned the term 'trismus'. f***ing merry trismus to me.

Build in several hours waiting between any events from here. Saw a doc at their catchily named MaxFax facility, who said "yeah, we're gonna knock you out and slit your throat". My reaction was "those things will not happen". Doc said that the chances of death under general anaesthetic are vanishingly small and you can die from an abscess anyway, so throw the dice. Jesus, grim. I bargained. Local anaesthetic, drain the abscess, reassess. They did it, bless them, midnight drainage.

:lol: The lady doc who did it said I would let them do anything to me as long as I was conscious. She got it.

Next day at lunchtime (not for me, I was f***ing nil by mouth throughout) she came back and said she didn't like my L7 and wanted to wrench it out. Fair enough, go for it. She did and the assisting nurse said "have you seen this before? The roots have grown twisted." And that's how I got an abscess. After fuckety odd years it twisted enough to leave a gap for germs to grow overfuckingnight.

That sorted the infection, but I still have a lump under my chin on that side, a self-defence mechanism, apparently, which might take weeks to go away. Like I need to be more jowly.

Apart from the eagerness to slit my f***ing throat, not feeding me or letting me sleep (IV antibiotics from 6am) and basically being imprisoned for 3 days what I found most disturbing was a lovely lady doctor (from the EU, so soon to be deported :() saying that as I had "admitted" drinking alcohol she had prescribed sedatives to replace it. That's not how it works, you can't prescribe mates and a laugh.

Anyway, yesterday a boxtick of doctors turned up and said there was no point detaining me any further. Seriously five and a half hours later I was allowed to leave.

Got home and told wifie and she was ":lol: This really is your first time. Waiting for your pills, was it? :lol:"

:okay:

Has anyone ever had a swollen lymph node on the side of the neck? (at least that's what i'm hoping it is). I do have a bit of a virus.

I hope I don't become a regular in here. :lol:

Friday night my shoulders were aching a bit, just assumed tension.

Yesterday morning left one was agony, couldn't even let the missus touch it. In typical bloke mode thought it would get better.

Today both shoulders again plus abdominals. I mean, I'm in prime heart attack territory at my age and with my lifestyle, and that sort of non-specific pain is symptomatic of that. Went on the 111.nhs.uk website, they ask you to complete a series of tickboxes and the result was "Phone 999 now!" Did so and the lass asked basically the same questions, only interjecting that an emergency ambulance was en route and telling me to take a load of aspirin.

:lol: Super. Tony turned up and BP, ECG and pulse were spot on, but I wasn't taking any chances with that s***. I would urge anyone else to do the same if in doubt, a free checkup if nothing else, took an hour all told. I'd packed my stuff just in case :lol:

Off Thursday and Friday, so hopefully can recover then.

I've had a nightmare few months after finding a suspicious mole on the back of my neck in the summer. First time I'd noticed it so went to the doctors straight away who got me an appointment at the RVI within a few days. Had the mole examined and removed that day and was told by the specialist and the surgeon that it was 'very supicious' possibly melanoma. Was told I'd get my result within a couple of weeks, but was due to go on holiday meaning I'd have to wait a month.....decided to cancel my hols and get the soonest appointment I could. I did a bit of reading up on melanoma and the world fell out of my arse when I found how f***ing deadly it is! The next couple of weeks was a bit of a blur and went for my appointment absolutely shitting it. Went into the room and there was two of them there, and one of them introduced herself as the cancer nurse. f***. They explained that I did have a malignant melanoma, but the good news was that it was pretty thin (less than 1mm) and classed as a 1b.....which has excellent survival rates. They looked at and photographed the rest of my moles and checked my lymph nodes and basically gave me the all clear.....but they offered me a wider area excision and sentinel lymph node biopsy as a precaution more than anything, which I decided to do.
I had that operation last month and they took a big chunk out of my neck and removed a lymph node on either side of my neck and told me I was to come back in January (then every 3 months for the next 5 years) as a check up. Last week I received a letter asking me to come in this Monday, and I knew straight away it wasn't good news, so phoned my Macmillan nurse. One of my lymph nodes had come back positive, which immediately moved me from a stage 1 to stage 3 and basically my 5 year survival rate went from 98% to about 48%. Saw the specialist on Monday and it was more positive than I initially feared. The cancer they found was of microscopic amounts (less than 2% of the node) and more importantly, hadn't punctured the capsule.....basically the node had done it's job. My man said that it would be 'highly highly unlikely' it had spead beyond there but couldn't rule it out. I'm in for a CT scan tomorrow to check if I'm clear, but am also having a full lymph node dissection on one side of my neck later this month, and immunotherapy treatment again as more of a precaution.
I've come to terms with it myself, but haven't told my kids or my Dad yet as I don't want to put them through the worrying I've done. Fingers f***ing crossed I get some good news with this scan as stage 4 melanoma is basically a death sentence.

Cheers people, appreciate your kind words.

The moral of this story is, if you have an issue that you're not sure about, don't put it off, deal with it immediately, see your doctor and if you're not  convinced, seek another opinion.

You only get one chance at this.
