I am a 23 year old male who is in pretty good health and decent shape physically. But in the past year I have encountered some health problems. For about two months now I have been having a hot feeling over my body at different parts of the day. My face feels red hot, especially my ears and around my eyes. Also the areas above my knees feel hot along with my genital area. And overall my skin feels warm to the touch as if I am running a fever; however my body temperature is normal. There is also body aches too. [br>[br>Also since December 2014 I have been battling sinus issues that will not resolve. I have the feeling of fullness and fluid sensation in my ears. Every time I swallow I hear a popping/clicking sound. Also I have a sore throat that is mild but persistent. Also there is headaches and sinus pressure, as well as chest congestion which causes chest and lung pain. My primary doctor referred me to an ear nose and throat specialist and says that I have a deviated septum which may be the cause of my sinus problems. The ENT said that it may just be allergies, but I have never had any problem with allergies in my life. [br>[br>Two weeks ago I visited my primary doctor and he ran a range of blood tests. Thyroid, Rheumatoid, Testosterone, mono, and blood count. All tests came back and were within normal range. My primary said that I may just have a virus that is hanging on. However with my current sinus issues, is it possible that my sinus problems are the cause of my mentioned issues? [br>[br>Thank you so much for your help, I just want to get back to being healthy again, I am worried that it could be something serious.View Thread
My most recent bloodtest revealed that I have high uric acid level (17.2) and my ALT level is 73 H and my AST level is 64 H. My doctor told me these are nothing I should be TOO concerned about due to the fact that these are slightly elevated and can be fixed by a better diet and more exercise. I use to drink about 2 cans of soda a day and know I understand how that is absolutely horrible for me, alongside with eating take out/fast food almost every other day for about two years, the effects have now fully caught onto me. So to my understanding, high fructose corn syrup directly stores fat onto my liver and soda is filled with that, however, my question is it okay to drink one can of soda a week even with my damaged liver? I find it hard to go cold turkey stopping soda, ive been clean for about 3 weeks now ever since my diagnosis and every time I see a canned soda I crave it so bad. How bad is a canned soda once a week with my liver problems?View Thread
Im an 18 year old male. About 4 weeks ago, after my second time masturbating, my penis was very sore, but i decided to pull off another one. Thats when i felt a very strong dull pain in my perineum. This pain went away, however I woke up with my penis, scrotum and testicles completely numb!
As of today there hasn't been much improvements, my penis head is actually very sensitive and my circumcision cut is also a little sensitive, however the rest of my shaft is numb to my touch. My scrotum still has numbness on my left side, but as i stated before, when i wake up in the morning, or sometimes from a nap, most of my scrotum goes numb again. Another thing to point out is that there is some improvements throughout the day, however when i wake up from sleep, it just goes back to where it was before. I cannot believe that masturbating caused this alone. I do not masturbate rough either.
I already went to a urologist to have it checked out, but she just briefly looked at my penis (touched my testicles which felt tender) and said that there's nothing to worry about. Hearing this from her worries me, since i have seen zero improvements.
I am still able to get erections, and morning erections aswell. Orgasms can also be achieved. My penis does not shrink anymore like it used to, its constantly filled with blood, and looks plump.
Whats wrong with my penis? Any explanations?View Thread
