Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Sorry to have to push you sometimes but other experts wouldn't ever take all the time I do with you and it's just that the site can't be free most of the time. I told you that, just like Marty, you should threaten to call the cops if she doesn't behave and a lot of people would have called the cops already
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Then dont f**king help me. Some friend you are. I dont know why she is acting like this. But i guess ill figure it out since im obviously inconviencing you
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Stop it please. You asked me what to do and I told you. Is this just something that just started and is she the one that wanted to live with her boyfriend.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Shes mad beca
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
That didn't get finished
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I took her phone because she lied about where she was all weekend. This is the younger one. She wonteave my room unless i give it back. She is destroying my room. She has
Dumped the garbage out in my room
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Then really there isn't much to do but call the cops
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I dont want to ruin her reputation by doing it. I just dont know what to do. I cant really cal the cops on her when i didnt call tem
Aboit marty
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Well then unless you can get her to calm down you'll just have to wait until she does but it sounds like she could use some anger management therapy
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Im heart broken
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Why?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Because shes saying really hurtful things
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Are you saying that she's never acted like this before?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No never. I feel like some how this is my fault
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
You tend to do that all the time. What was the story about this weekend.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
She told me she was at her friends house all weekend Everytime j asked her she told me that thats where she is. I asked her friend and she said she wasnt there. And i asked hrr where she was and she told me that she was at her friends and i told her she wasnt there and asked her where she was and she said it doesnt effing matter. And so i took her phone.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Well you did nothing wrong and she's obviously reacting the way she is because she knows she's been lying and obviously she's lying because she's ashamed of whatever she was doing
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I cant deal with this anymore
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Sure you can and I'm not running away but I have to get to bed--let me know in the morning how things are
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
She eventually calmed down
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Good
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Last night was riduculous
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Get back to me in about three hours
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
My bp is horrible. 86/57, 76/49,78/45, 83/54,82/55,83/58
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Are you still on the beta blocker?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I havent taken it all weekend
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
All I can say then is that that BP is indeed too low and you need to be checked out. Don't know if it's dehydration or cardiac but it needs checking
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Talked to my dr via phone he said push fluids
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Can't say anymore about it then--try what he says
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Except im going to pass out
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
You still put me in a bind here--go get checked out
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
My dr wont even though he has pretty much all afternoon open. Its frustrating
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
I didn't mean him
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
What would you do if i was your patient
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Tell you just what I told you--get it checked out if I couldn't see you
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Will he get mad if i get seen by someone else
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Don't take this the wrong way but I don't care if he does
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Its kinda irresponsible for him to tell me to push fluids and give it a couple days.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
I fully agree
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I might call him again and ask him to see me
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
You can give it a try
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Or do i give it a couple days
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
No you don't--see some doctor today and let's stop chatting about it
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Ok. I will see if theres a dr that will see me today.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Good
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Saw my pcp and he said my potassiums still low. Did an ekg and he said it showed bradycardia but he wasnt too concerned about it
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
What about your dizziness or lightheadedness?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
He told me to sit down when i feel that way
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Well, nothing more to say about that now I guess
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Last medic
Question. If i have a yeast infection down below will the fluconazole cure it? It kinda burns and i dont know how long to give it to clear up
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Yes, it will and very effectively
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
In how long. Ive been on it for a week
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Well, almost any yeast infection would clear with that much so it probably has cleared
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Its sore down there. It burns when urine touches it and when i clean. So im thinking its not gone
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Possibly not but no way for me to tell and we're just chatting again.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I
Was just making a statement
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
So was I. By the way did you get the final culture results
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No i didnt but they ordered another one today
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
So what happened to the report on the other one and what kind of culture this time?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I dont know what happened. Just another urine culture. Btw i dont have chlamydia or gonorrhea and my hpv test came back normal
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
That's what I was asking about. Good news
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I didnt think id have any stds
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
As I also told you but you did ask
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I know. I wish i knew what was up
With my urine but oh well
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Anything more?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
My therapist told me that calling the sherrif on my sister last night would have been wrong
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Did he have any suggestions?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Just to let her vent
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK. I take it she calmed down?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Ya shes not talking to anyone though
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Well, she'll get over it
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I guess.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
I have to go--semi emergency. Talk to you later
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hope everything is ok. Good night
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
It will be
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
My bp is still too low
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
There isn't anything more I can say about that--hopefully you did push the fluids
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I did i had like 30 oz yesterday
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Like I said, I don't really have anything to say about it.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Fine!
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Don't be like that--I don't have anything more to say so don't push it. You saw your doc, he told you to push fluids--there just isn't anything for me to add.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I still have biliruben in my urine but the urobiligen is normal
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Still nothing specific
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
My urine culture from yesterday grew >100000 cm of mixed organisms
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Not at all sure what that means--it takes > 100,000 of one specific bacteria to indicate and infection
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
So it doesnt mean anything
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
No it doesn't mean infection
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Wgat causes hemolytic uremic syndrome? We diagnosed a 10 year old with it today
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/hemolytic-uremic-syndrome/DS00876
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I coukda googled tgat
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
I know but we're just chatting here
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It seems like everything i say you say is chatting. Why?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
This is a long page with other answers and then you ask me a question not related to you that, yes, you could Google yourself. To me that's just prolonging the page
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Martys friend died and hes crying
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Not an unusual reaction
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Im not dumb. I know its a normal reaction. I just dont know how to comfort him
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
You shouldn't--that's why I gave a stupid response. At least not comfort him by being with him.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
How am insuppose to comfort him then? I dont think hes going to be mean to me when hes sad
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
I'm not going to budge from this--under NO circumstances should you be physically with him. And you aren't the only one who can comfort him
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I cant tell him no when hes sobbing. Im not heartless
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Enough of this--you've got my recommendation and he's a manipulator. You aren't heartless since you care and want to comfort him but that doesn't mean you should ignore your common sense.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
My vision is blurry
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Seriously--we can't go on on one page discussing some new symptom every time you have it. Blurry vision could be a variety of things but obviously you need to get it checked out. Let's close this page, OK?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
If you dont wanna talk to me thats fine but you dont have ti be mean
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Why do you call it mean when I just have to continue to remind you of the rules? You know as well as I do when we get off track on a page and you add one new medical question after another--that's considered abusing the site.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The psychiatrist spent 10 minutes with me
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
And?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
And she increased the zoloft
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
You know I meant what did you talk about.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Eating disorder and thats pretty much it
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
So she didn't scold you?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Not really. She said i need to eat.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Well, glad you went and at least she didn't scold you (which I didn't think she would). Seriously, thought, it's time to close this page
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Last thing just as an fyi, my dr started me on macrobid for 10 days
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
