How come every Medicine General turns out into either an aesthetics thread or a sex thread? Unoriginal retards.

>>12724564We will never be equal, coomer. You are an intellectual midget.
>>12724600Theres a clear difference between the socially well versed public jew (neuro surg), versus the cryptojew (psych). Basically, neurosurg will have gilded instruments that have diamond blades and the whole time his handing chain plucks out a little jew chest hair and it lands in your smooth little brain

>>12724306How can pain be measured, how is it determined to be excessive or not?Take working out or a physical job as an example. I would expect pain and soreness for the first few weeks as a body adjusts but this should subside. If after 12 weeks of this physical routine the pains keep getting worse, is there something wrong?What is one meant to do if the average doctor doesn't appear to have a clue what the next step should be? What language to use? I know that even the smallest mention of a fact you found online will kill their doctor-boner and they will be even more unhelpful.Are arthritis blood tests reliable? Is fibromyalgia real?

>>12724611For men with normal height and normal muscular complexion. Obviously, you should add calories according to your particular complexion, as well as according to the exercise load. I didn't think you guys would be such brainlets that I'd need to say that.
>repostanIs this considered barrel chested? 25 and been smoking pot for 2 years. Breathing is fine, no pain or struggle. I mean, I've had a shitty nose all my life so my breathing is probably more laboured than usual but it's normal for me. Width is 11 inches and 8.5-9 inches exhale and inhale at the narrowist point. Is that abnormal when most chests should be a 2:1 ratio for width to depth? Just curious if that's weird for proportions.
>>12724525well, due to gravitational dilatation, time does progress slower closer to the ground, I'll give you that

>>12724738What do you mean by "deficit" exactly? That you feel hungry? Hunger is not an indicator of anything, particularily on fat people.
>>12724732If you talk to some trad religions, they all look forward to death. Heaven sounds a lot better than suffering with the eternal jew on earth. Honestly, I never see atheists live with such spiritual peace, they're always trying to fill some kind of void - their words not mine. I don't hear that complaint from the faithful. Literally, who would want to endure another year of western propaganda ALSO tmw no satanic jews will be in heaven.
>>12724770Religion isn't biology. Religion is nothing but an anxiety management tool for idiots.
>>12724770I'm an atheist and I feel content. Isn't that void the reason why you /fit/ retards keep wanting more muscle mass? To get attention from females and fill that "void"?
>>12724777Shalom, Rabbi.Biology is the study of life. Guess who made everything?
>>12724732>he is too scared of death to eat

Inshallah, these generals have gone to shit.
>>12724801survivor bias. Also no, I don't need vein women to satisfy anything in my life. They only bring problems and they're a money pit. I'm with some woman now who isn't chasing after a pension, or wasting her early life in school. The books and degree will be there after we have kids. I liked the way she thought, and she wants me to lead the relationship as muchas I want to. Everything is easy with her honestly, trad women are gold. The kicker is, you have to be trad yourslf to enjoy this stability. Heh, anyway... She's calling me to the other room so she can rub my back. Later premeds

Are racial diets a meme? There's been emerging evidence regarding links between the bacterial cells in our body and health implications. I understand certain bacteria "prefer" to digest certain foods over others. Given races have become accustomed to certain foods over generations, should their racial diets be encouraged for best general health?Also, if that's the case - how do we address the mixed race populations, seems too tricky for me to care beyond pure races.

>>12724904I'm not familiar but if the trend originated in America you can 100% be sure it's identity politics LARPing as pseudoscience. Some ethnicities have predispositions to function better with certain % of macronutrients although it could be argued that rather than an evolutionary trait it is an adaptative mechanism.
>>12724904I'd like to see an answer to this too. As far as I know, gut biome is adapted to what you've been eating for a while, there's no genetics or epigenetics factors to condition it.
>>12724923>>12724926Here's where it may be a big problem. There are blacks in Canada, also the other non-whites, who are complaining about the recommended diet being racist. Among all the retarded screaming I actually became curious. Some are lactose intolerant for example. >>12724926Maybe. I've seen a news report from researchers saying they changed phenotype autism mice (rats?) into near wild-type by introduction of certain bacteria. The gut biome clearly has effects when played with - even some autists in sweden or somewhere around there are getting treated with poop-pills for their symptoms. How far can we push this before it gets too far is the real question.
>>12724909ask me how i know you are a fucking autist

Okay my terrible sitting posture has definitely fucked my ribs, sticks out considerably more on my left when I bend my torso to the side. Is it worth going to the doctor or just go straight to a physio?
>>12725488look up EJFitness - he's a family med resident and really /fit/. His wife is higher test than him though, and he's an eternal manlet. Still, seems okay besides his gay affinity for shoes and style.
>>12725001Negros and chinks may be lactose intolerant but that don't make the recommended diets racist. It's as easy as learning basic macros and using proteic equivalents. To me it sounds like a low IQ bs excuse to bitch about non problems. God. I hate when academically disabled retards lobby their bullshit politics into healthcare.
>you'll meet and make life long friends in medical school>year 2>no friends>non-med friends don't talk to me anymore even though I try to (we're either too far or we've moved in different ways)>tfw see people in my class on facebook posting about hanging out and doing bestie stuff>tfw so alone>>12725832I refer you to >>12724306 and point 3 in >>12724377
>>12725716Yup, I agree. The thing about anything in western politics is that you cannot represent multiple peoples without neglecting others. I'm getting the hell of out here - my pay is shit compared to the states, I'm going to Europe. I can't deal with diversity anymore my man, it's time to live with the racists.Check this nigrophyte's frontal cranial structure. It's as flat as their grasslands. It's not worth the headache; if the west wants to import and worship 3rd worlders, go ahead, I won't be their doctor.

sorry for the wall of text i know i shouldn't ask this here, but I'm genuinely terrifiedlast weekend I overworked myself in the gym and monday i felt shooting pains in the upper left side of my chest, near my heart so naturally i thought it was from the gymthe feeling faded until last evening when i received some troubling news from my dad. before going to sleep i realised that i had the same shooting pains when i took deep breathsduring the night, i woke up to take a piss and after i laid down i felt as if my heart was about to explode, yet i didn't feel anything in my left hand nor did i have cold sweatsas soon as i woke up i made an appointment with my heart doc but I'm terrified, my fingers are still shaking as i'm typing thisis it a heart attack? or just a panic attack?

>>12726727please don't be like thisi knew i shouldn't have asked anything on here
>>12726739Of course you shouldn't. Diagnoses can only be made following an evaluation of signs and symptoms. Some dude saying "my chest hurts" is not specific at all. Maybe you are having a heart attack. Maybe it's pleurisy or some other lung problem. A 4channel thread cannot order tests, cannot listen to your breathing, cannot do an EKG.Go to the doctor, retard.
>>12726708Internally lol, tho I plan on leaving once my hours accumilated enough.
>>12726649Go to urgent care and report your symptoms. Stop dicking off and go ASAP
Say field amputation is needed, leg. How long will it take for an average male to bleed out? Or at least, lose enough blood for him to not be redeemable any longer?

>>12728527those tits looks like dough thats been stretched out. Obviously shes been passed around and men have been making spaghetti out of her pillowtops. I have never in all of my years seen such undesirable tits on a young woman. I'd expect those skin flops to start their descent at around age 40, 35 if your a genetic dead end. This isn't prime real estate. They let the whole town rent her out and it shows - a coat of paint wont get the grime out of the cracks, thats for sure boys. Check those fucking tubes too lmfao. Who unironically uses... what is that, a classic littman? WOW. Nursoid detected in a filthy room - hopefully the patient's rooms are more tidy than the most intimate room in her dwelling.

I'm trying to get access to a paper written by a cardiologist who studied a Eucharistic miracle where bread was turned into heart tissue. The MD went to study it in whatever country was housing the relic and wrote a paper on it. I don't have access to it through my university, it's not on any open-source sites I typically use and I also directly messaged the guy on ResearchGate, requesting a copy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaoaHNhX1pk&t=0sThis is the paper I'm referring to. The guy in the video did an English translation and read it aloud, but I want the actual PDF, so I can mark it up.

>>12729384I don't get the obsession with a long life. Becoming old is total shit since you don't have the energy or will to do shit. Sight, hearing and balance degenerate to the point where even a walk to the park becomes an extreme sport and you're always thirsty but can't drink too much water or you'll risk pissing yourself. Not to even mention the fact that government and labour laws and being lobbied to basically cucking you out of a pension by always pushing the retirement age further. Now that I think about it I'll most likely die without seeing my 30+ working age tax money back since it's all being wasted on welfare and now I'm fuming. Fuck you.

how does one tell apart a bacterial infection from a viral infection without any labs or imaging? Just by signs and symptoms
>>12730491Viral infections are diffuse and self limiting. Bacterial infections are specific and stubborn. So if some kid comes in with a URTI with a snotty nose, a sore throat, a headache, a fever, a cough, etc. he's probably got a viral infection that'll clear by itself in two weeks. If some kid comes in with a URTI with JUST a sore throat and no other symptoms, it's probably bacterial (or fungal). And obviously growths, pus, cultures, etc. all exclude viral.
>>12730491you really can't tell very well even with labs, obviously certain shit is only caused by certain pathogens, if you come to me with a obvious sinuitis that has lasted for a month it isn't caused by a virus etc.

quick question: what makes a good GP?
>>12730540i'd say the ability to extract a good history and great examination skills. as a gp you are dealing with the widest set of possible problems out of any specialty, so you need to be able to pick up on that shit
>>12730540Time. Time and earning the trust of your patient.
>>12730570you can specialize too, there are other kinds of jobs in primary care than just attending to whoever happens to walk in from the door, but yeah, from my perspective as a hospital doc, a gp fails either by sending people who should not be sent or not sending those who should be. obviously there is also the vast space of problems that are handled completely on the primary care level which you need to be proficient with.
>>12730534Don't be hating on the PAs who actually have backgrounds in medical science and have medical training. They're not n*rses.
>>12730610they are in my country
>>12730610>medical trainingkek fuck off with that massive copeposting.
>>12730605Hmm, the fact that you can easily fuck up by sending the pt to the wrong doc or not sending the patient when he actually needs it, sounds like a skill that's obtained over time and with experience, not something I can prepare for in advance.
>class does a valentines day gift exchange using emojis to explain what you want>Hint really hard for grocery store related card>get a gift card to uber eatsNNNNOOOOOOOOOOO. It's such a waste of money. Almost everything has a $4 (((delivery fee))) so the $20 gift card is inherently only $16, which isn't even enough to get a normal ass meal. Also, the places you buy from skimp on the meal. I got a uber eat gift card from the faculty before and got some A&W and they gave me like a 100 mL bottle of chocolate milk. I fucking HATE this shit.That being said, what kind of food should I order, /med/bros?
Why is benzo tolerance frowned upon so much? What makes them difference from being dependent on an SSRI for example?
>uncomfortable feeling under left rib>find thread on google of similar thing>many people have it but doctors say its nothing after doing all the testsoh god ive become a schizo.
Can my dog breathing on me or being in the same room as me after eating a rotten cow carcass give me diseases? If so what kindPls respond
>>12731013Higher abuse of benzos than SSRIs. Generally not as stigmatized as opioids I think. Also the withdrawal is really, really bad I've heard.>>12731043You already asked that nigger. Look up an infectious disease for animals textbook retard.
>>12731069I did ask that and all I got was a smug wojak tier reddit responseYes, I know rotting carcasses harbor bacteria and micro-organisms. Specifically my question asks a very reasonable question 1) What kind of infectious micro-organisms and bacterial are known to be transmissible to humans 2) what is the risk associated being in close proximity to a dog who ate meat contaminated with such bacteria e.g. breathing on you 3) What symptoms should one monitor for given the circumstancesIt's all very reasonable, and does not warrant smug wojak tier replies tbqh
I've been working on a memsterpiece - shal'st I post it, or wait for the morrow?

I'm a virgin. be gentle.
>>12731043Echinococcus granulosus. Supposing the cow was infected, the parasite will grow in your dog's entrails to its adult stage and lay eggs. Your dog gonna poop (eggs in the poop), and as we know dogs paws and mouths may come in contact with their own poop, and so will you.We humans are accidental hosts, so the parasite will enter our digestive tract, get absorbed, enter the portal vein circuit and land in the liver where it will form a hydatidic cyst.Maybe you should go to a vet and ask if it's plausible to desparasitise your dog?
>>12731160Let me just go to my GP, without having any symptoms, to ask him a question about dogs and cattle.In the middle of a pandemic. In the middle of a cold snap. In the middle of a city-wide blackout. Yeah. Sounds good.
>>12731201Do you guys not have phones?
>>12731211well right now its 10pm on a friday . you want me to call him rn? and I'd like to get an answer sooner rather than later, even if its just a med students best guess
>>12731222You asked yesterday. You could have called him today.
>>12731247Nobody told me to call my doctor, idiot. the only reply I got was a stupid reddit tier snarky "sarcasm is my personality trait" reply
>>12731270reddit? REDDIT?? GO B A C K
>>12731165where is this parasite stored in livestock? i sincerely doubt my dog wouldve gotten to the liver, considering thats the organ most valued among carnivores, no? can this parasite exist in bones or muscle tissue?
>>12731270>I won't call my doctor unless I'm told toHow do you survive?
>>12731326>41 deaths in 30 years in US>most of them weren't even US citizenswhy am i worried about this again?
>>12731290Most common places are the liver and the lungs of cattle.In cow muscle there may be Taenia saginata cysts. HOWEVER, since I'm a mere med student and not a vet student, I don't know if the dog can host this T.saginata parasite for it to become adult and lay eggs (and become a source of infection), or if the Taenia just encysted in the dog's muscle.I hope this was helpful, and I'd like to repeat that perhaps it would be a good idea to appoint your dog for a deparasitation
I literally hate doctors so fucking much guys
>>12731340i greatly appreciate you taking the time to write these posts. before i made my post, i was worried about some kind of bacteria or something that maybe could give me TB/pneumonia but now i'm seeing that parasites are perhaps more realistic and i will make appt for vet
>>12731270>NOBODT TOLD ME 2 USE ME COMMON SENSE LIKE LICHLURY GUISE WTF IZ WROBG WITCHALLWish I had smug wojaks. You can use your imagination and see a smug brainlet wojak attached.
>>12731556Look I'm sure you're smart but maybe you're not considering the implicit argument here. I was hoping the subtext was obvious but maybe it's not immediately clear for some people.If someone goes to a forum which is inhabited by med students and doctors and physicians, and asks a question, and the only response is some silly rhetoric meant to demean the person, then you are actually making an argument. When you ignore people who post here, or treat their post nonchalantly, that nonchalance is an implicit argument; the subtext is clear: your case, your situation, is not of urgent importance. To succinctly put it, if I post my problem to this thread and no one cares enough to reply except to tell me I'm stupid, then the implicit argument is, by necessity, that my problem doesn't warrant serious consideration i.e. calling my doctor.So although you might want to tut-tut me for being oh so stupid for not seeking the advice of my GP, really is exactly what the thread implicitly argued for me to do. You can't have it both ways. You can't trivialize someone when they come for help and then call them helpless and stupid when they take your cue and assume their issue isn't a big enough deal to contact their GP.
>>12731164It's shit, Dr. Anon.
>>12731629>only response is some silly rhetoric meant to demean the personIt's not to demean you. It's because:1. We're not here to give you advice, period.2. You need to see a healthcare provider local to you because that is the best way of receiving care. It's literally an ethical requirement of our profession. Can't give care unless we have a professional relationship with the patient --> professional relationship means (more or less) IRL. The reason is that we need the relationship to do our jobs properly. Anonymous internet advice is not a professional relationship.>You can't have it both ways. You can't trivialize someone when they come for help and then call them helpless and stupid when they take your cue and assume their issue isn't a big enough deal to contact their GP.Yes we can. We trivialize your retarded request for help on an anonymous internet forum, while making fun of you for being unable to do the right thing and FUCKING CALL A DOCTOR.But I get it. Doctors in America charge $39.99 minimum (+tip), so free internet advice is what you want.tl;dr you're retarded
>>12729952for me it was elevator guy and security guards since they don't have sticks up their ass
>>12730447why don't you just make discord instead of these shady links

If you are a fat doctor, then tell me why I should care to listen to your advice?
>>12731837i'm not fat, i'm muscular and i'm gonna rear naked choke you if you don't listen to my advice.
>>12731837Not all diseases are related to obesity.
>>12731772Okay now it's clear you just have some weird chip on your shoulder and are intentionally ignoring the truth.People come to these threads when they're unsure if they should contact their doctor. So if someone who is presumably medically trained takes the time to a be a smug asshole and write "GEE, I DUNNO, DO ROTTING CARCASES CARRY POSSIBLE DISEASES?" and that's it, and no one else replies, what is the layperson supposed to thinl?People who aren't medically trained don't know how infectious diseases work. Instead of being a smug asshole and writing a smug post, what could have been written was just a 3 word post "call your doctor". Is that so hard? Apparently so. And guess what, if my post had gotten the replies it got today, yesterday, I would have called my doctor. I'm not saying med students and doctors who come here have an obligation to give free advice, but you can't write smug stupid bullshit and then call someone stupid when they don't call their doctor.This isn't some like video game forum, people come here for serious health concerns. The smug asshattery you might normally use in other places should be withheld. Its actually irresponsible
>>12731837>having trouble controlling your weight means you dont know how to practice medicineGo be retarded somewhere else.
>>12731901>what could have been written was just a 3 word post "call your doctor".>We discuss research, DO NOT offer advice (just fucking go see your doctor)It's literally in the OP, you turbo retard.
>>12731944Except you can just scroll up and see dozens of posts from people asking for medical advice. It's like the warning that comes on Q-tips that say not to put them in your ears. Guess what, people do it anyway. Regardless, you're avoiding what I wrote. Someone who presumably is at least a med student decided to reply to me, but instead of three simple words "see a doctor", they decided to write some snarky quip which communicates nonchalance
how normal is it for me to feel slightly feverish after taking antibiotics?
>>12732048i just finished 10 days of amoxicilan and i felt fevered on and off. on the first night of taking them i woke up feeling really weird, almost lightheaded. never had a temp above low 99.X
>>12732073>on the first night of taking them i woke up feeling really weird, almost lightheadedthat's basically how i felt this morningi feel much better now though, not feverish in the slightest i took klacid btw

Forgive me if this is the wrong place to ask but if I'm sick (COVID) and wake up with snot (actual snot) in my eye (matted eyelashes), should I be deebly goncerned about infection? My eye is very much red. Some of the snot was dried, some was wet. I must've blown my nose in my sleep and rubbed it in my eye.
>>12732595all good bro, the eye is extremely resilient against infection and heals quickly. just sleep it off.
>>12732021>We discuss research, DO NOT offer advice (just fucking go see your doctor) make fun of premeds and shitpost.you joined a thread about shitposting and you expected to not get shitposted ondo you see the issue here?>b-b-but other people asked for advicejust because other people are doing it doesn't mean you should. This is anonymous - probably <5% of posters here are even qualified to give you proper advice. Why would you take that chance?If you still believe you have the moral high ground, O lord, then please enlighten us heathens as to how we improve our OP so people like you don't ask for advice.
>>12732604Is this sarcasm? If not then thank you.
>>12731828>>12731750Are there any meme-making folders floating around?
>>12732645theres a mega with the apus look around in archives
>>12732612it was sarcasm. your eyes are extremely vulnerable to infection. this is because the blood vessels there are very thin by design to allow for optimal vision and this in turn makes it difficult for your immune cells to reach an area of infection in the eye if it occurs. the eye does have other mechanisms for defense and you will probably be fine but you only have this single pair of eyes, if they get fucked its over. you should watch this very closely and if your symptoms worsen at all you should have it checked out.
/med/ically speaking, is it better to squat while shitting? (i.e. using a shitting stool)
Dear MDs of /med/,I need advice. I am clinically retarded and a cheapskate and can't figure out what to do to be healthy. How can I guilt trip you into giving me free advice because you're in such a profession that requires you to do what the patient requests. So I ask you /med/, how can I not be so dumb?Warmest Retards,Anon
I can't quit smoking cold turkey.i tried so many times but I simply fail, i feel like I can't function properly without cigarettes. Is NRT worth it? Should I just get some patches? At least, I want to not fuck up my lungs any further.
are both sides of the ribcage supposed to be the exact same, i cant sleep on my back because when i breath out at the end of the breath it feels like my left side of the ribcage lightly digs into me which is a little uncomfortable so i sleep on my side.
