Im crying because i dont feel good

Customer Question

Im crying because i dont feel good
Submitted: 1 year ago.
Category: Health
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Why aren't you in the ER?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I dont wanna go. I am so sick of drs
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
I understand but again there's really no use for us to talk about what's going on tonight because I can only give you possibilities and I can't do anything about it
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Please dont be angry with me. Its been a rough day. My mom figure says im cold and clammy and just need to sleep
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
I'm not angry--never have been whenever you thought I was. Do you actually have a fever?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Idk if i have a fever. I dont have any probe covers for my thermometer. I just feel hot
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Have you had anything to eat or drink today--just asking, not probing
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I had some chicken nuggets and some water
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Well if you've got a fever you at least need some fluids for that
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I know that. I know this isnt a valid excuse but i dont like to eat/drink when i dont feel good
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Whatever--not much else to suggest
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I really am sorry if i frustrate you. I know you tell me what i should do and then i dont listen to your advice
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
That's OK but why do you ask those certain questions when you know what I'll say and what you won't do?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Because sometimes i think youll say something different
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Why, just so you'll feel better or what?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Sorry, just can't do that
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
One side of my neck hurts to press on it
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Whats chromogranin a test
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
It's for detecting the presence of carcinoid tumors
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Do you think its a necessary test to do? Do you think i have to wait 3 months to do it
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
You really shouldn't ask me that--if the doctor wants it you should get it since a carcinoid might explain some of your symptoms. But, really, we don't need to discuss anything more GI for now.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
But do you think its necessary to wait 3 months to do that test
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
It's just a blood test so it could be done at any time
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
If i did it now i could stop worrying
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Well, I don't think a carcinoid tumor is likely but yes it might. But seriously--we've kind of exhausted talking GI things for now so let's move on
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My aunts being put on hospice
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Have you spent any time with her?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Nope i try not to see her. I saw her at the hospital last night for her birthday
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
OK. What else then?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I just deopped a bottle of beer on my stub. And my stub is swelling
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Stub?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Put my foot in a barn fan when i was 5. Cut off 2 toes. Told you that before
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Sorry--just wasn't sure. But why tell me about dropping the bottle on it? There's nothing much I can tell you about what to do.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Just forget it. The swelling has gone down
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
OK
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What does this mean?
COMPARISON: CT of the abdomen dated 7/11/2013
FINDINGS AND IMPRESSION: A radiotracer avid tumor is not identified.
Noted on low dose, unenhanced nondiagnostic quality CT images:
Approximately 0.6 cm nodule left lung base. Retained contrast in the
appendix versus appendicolith.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Have you had that nodule seen before--I can't remember? Don't think you have a stone in your appendix--just some contrast that got in there
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ya ive know about the nodule for a little over a year. How could i still of had contrast when i cleaned out with mag citrate
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
That wouldn't get rid of contrast in the appendiceal lumen--that would just take time to get out
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Anything else?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Whats the typical cure for an OD
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Not at all sure what you meant by that?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Whats the typical treatment of an overdose?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Depends on what was taken and what the situation is as to the patient but before we go on this really isn't an appropriate topic for the two of us
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Do any of these meds interact
Compazine, atenolol, amityptaline, ranitidine, aciphex, zoloft, lorazepam
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Well, together there can be dizziness, lightheadedness, constipation, urinary retention but nothing so serious as a true contraindication among all of them.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Will any of th besides the atenolol have the potential to lower my bp? My bp is already on the lower
Side of normal
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Yes--the lorazepam and potentially the amiltriptylene could
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
So just monitor my bp
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
For now, yes
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
How come a guy can tell me im sexy but i dont believe him
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Well, if it's a self-esteem problem that's easy to do. That's assuming he's being honest with the statement
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Are you saying he could be lying. He said "you are sexy and i want to lay next to you and feel your warmth and smell your scent. I want to grow old with you"
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Who said this and in what context--what was going on at the time?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It was my friend Phil. He was talking to me about why i love marty and such
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Well, don't quite know what you mean by friend when you've told me you don't have any. How well do you know him? And what did you say when he said this?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
We went to college together in 2008. And we keep in touch occassionally. I told him he was full of shit
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
So out of the blue--on the phone, I'm guessing--he says this to you?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
We were texting back and forth. He was talking to me about being in Rochester and wjy was going on. Then he aske me if marty was my first love and my first person i had sex with ect And then he said hed provide me with a house and wouldnt ever raise his hand to me
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
When you two were actually together in real life, was it just a friendly relationship?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Just friends. After i started goig out with marty he told me he always wanted to ask me out but he was too nervous
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Well he may still have a thing for you and it's a lot easier to text intimate things than to say them face to face so I guess he may well have meant what he said
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Thats gross
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
What's gross?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Him liking me
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Very strange use of the word here--explain to me in more than a short sentence what you mean.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It is just creepy
That he finds me sexy. It makes me feel sick that he likes me
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Why exactly? And take your time in answering
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Because i cannot even fathom that someone would like me like that. I think i am unlikable. I just think people like me only to get somethin out of it
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
So here's the self-esteem problem again. Doesn't sound like he was really just fishing for sex
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Afterwards he asked me to send him a pic of my nether region.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Well, that's out of hand of course. Totally inappropriate.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hes not much better than marty but he wouldnt hit me
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Maybe not but I just think saying something like that reflects immaturity and a lack of proper courtesy
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Idk why creepy people like me
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Creepy people can like any attractive woman--it says nothing about you yourself
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Buf im not attractive
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
That's for others to decide--not you
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
But i got a fat face
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Not going to go back and forth with you on this--beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and, for example look at Sofia Loren and Carlo Ponti--he was short and fat and so far as I'm concerned anything but attractive and she was gorgeous
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Sorry
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Please stop using that particular word when it doesn't fit in the context of what we're talking about
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
How do i find someone who will like me but not hurt me
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Well, face to face of course--I don't recommend on line dating services
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
But how do i meet people
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
There are no men around at work or other places you go to?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Theres really
Not guy where i work. I dont go anywhere else
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Well, unless you expand your world and get to meet people no one is going to be knocking on your door. I guess on line dating is OK so long as you're careful
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What if i meet someone and they rape me
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
What if you meet someone and they turn out to be exactly who you want and need? You can play the what if game two ways
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I need to meet someone like Sheldon off the big bang theory.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Don't watch it
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I need to find someone who hates sex as much as i do
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Not sure what you mean.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I need a sexless relationship
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
So what exactly are you looking for in a man?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Just someone who is nice
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
That doesn't say very much at all
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What are you looking for
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
The question is what exactly are you looking for? If you have just some vague idea of what the "ideal man" would be for you how would you ever know if you'd found him?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Im just looking for someone whos averageheight and fit. And someonewho is nice to me. Thats all
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
But what do you mean by nice? That's just a fairly vague term
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Just someone who will treat me nicely and respects me
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
OK--what is your conception of a healthy loving relationship and this time take the time to write me a paragraph instead on one line
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What do you
Mean?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Enough for now and don't act like you have absolutely no idea what I'm talking about. The question was very simple and direct and maybe it's just that you have never thought about it before. So let's leave this off for tonight, and tomorrow sometime come back here with your paragraph
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What do you mean byconception of a
Healthy relationship. Im not being dumb here
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
What would you consider a good relationship--what would it mean in terms of how both people treat each other and how they work out problems and differences. And, as a reference point, from what you've told me your relationship with Marty is anything but healthy and nourishing
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Each person needs to be respectful towards each other. And take time to listen to the other person. They need to be kind to each other and not say things to hurt te other purposly
In a good relationship to solve problems there should be lots of talking to get to a solution. Noone in the relationship should stew about a problem
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Good start. And how does one develop that relationship--how does it start out?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Being open
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
OK--and can you be open in the way you're talking about?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I dont think i can
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Well, until you can, why bother with trying to find that great relationship?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I honestly dont think i will ever be able to do that
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Oh, believe me you can but up to now you really haven't worked on yourself--not blaming you specifically, more your therapist.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Do you think right now im ready for a relationship
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
No--maybe a friendship with a man, but not a relationship
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Why do you think that
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
You've said so yourself for one--that you can't really be open. Then there's the self-esteem problem, the sexual aversion problem, the anger and resentment about the past you haven't worked through--just too many things about yourself to work on for you to be able to achieve that kind of relationship right now.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Its not my fault i have a sexual
Aversion problem. Its nit only sex that bothers me, its the kissing and snuggling too
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
I never said it was your fault and that was just part of what I said. The simple fact is that, for right now, you just aren't comfortable in your own skin and until you can be, you just can't hold up your end of the kind of relationship we're talking about
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Tell me how to get over the sexual
Aversion
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
You have to share the past with a good therapist and work through and beyond the shame, anger and resentment you have but I've told you that many times. It's almost like you want me to say something different and that's never going to happen. You can't just snap your fingers and have it all go away
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Is there anything besides therapy? Maybe if i go out and have sex with a lot of people maybe ill get over it.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
No, that won't work and I think you knew that. If anything that would probably just make everything much worse since you already tend to use the word slut and bad person when you refer to yourself
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I thought it would be exposure therapy
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
That works for some things but not for this in your case.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Fine
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I dont know why i have a hard time with sex. I dont think about the past abuse when im having sex
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
A lot of it is ingrained in your subconscious and, of course, Marty hasn't helped with the way he treats and talks about you
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
But i should be over tge past now and i should be able to have sex and not freak out about it
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Started the amitryptalin tonight within 10-15 mins after taking it my chest started to hurt. Its not because of the med is it
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Could be the med, yes
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I must have fallen last night
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
The page is getting long again--let's cover this quickly and then close it
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I woke up the sm on the floor snd my fan was knocked over
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
So it's possible you fell out of bed and didn't wake up when you did? Not going to lecture but what all did you take before going to bed?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I was by the foot of the bed. I took amityptaline, zoloft, lorazepam, atenolol
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Any bumps or bruises?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I dont think so
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
OK. My only point would be that whether you just slid out of bed or maybe actually were "sleepwalking" you don't know how you ended up on the floor so I think the combination of the amitriptylene and the lorazepam at bedtime was too much. I'd forgo the amitriptylene until you tell your doctor about what happened
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Just now i took 7
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Seven what?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Lorazepam
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
OK--close the page right now with an accept and you know very well you shouldn't have told me that.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Who the hell else would i have told
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Listen--you put me in a very bad situation by doing that and if we continue with this discussion it will be totally against JA guidelines and I will be smacked hard for it. Close the page, call your doctor, and if you ever do this again I'll have no choice but never to reply to any more of your questions.
