Common Questions and Answers about Effects of smoking in public places


Avatar n tn I would like to know about some of the side effects and some of the long term effects that an individual might have after taking this drug. I would also like to know how long the drug is in your system and can it be detected.
Avatar n tn I'm not saying I look perfect, but I look and feel a hell of a lot better, and will likely finally go to the pool again after about 18 years of being in hiding from any public places that involved water! I do agree with the person who commented about watching your diet and exercise going forward, because you WILL gain in different places in your body, post treatment.
Avatar n tn I have changed everything in my life. No smoking, no glasses of wine, low salt, low cholesterol. I am under a doctors care and taking bllod pressure amd cholestrol medication. Yes you can work and as I am a kitchen designer for a major Fortune 500 company, You can concentrate but it does mean taking breaks, grazing all day instead of easting large meals and getting plenty of sleep. Sometimes my speech slurrs and words get jumbled. I need to pause and take a breath.
Avatar n tn She is so exhausted that she can't fight no more against medical community in order to admit the origin of her symptoms and to push them to try to find a beginnning of solution. Is there any progress in the comprehension of the cause of these symptoms ? Are there some new treatments that appeared recently to counteract exhaustion and pains ? Do people group themselves in associations to better fight against this disaster ?

1160836 tn?1332333769 My doctor thought it was enviormental (exercise, stress...etc) as I just started to go do body pump right around that time. Every cycle before that was 30-31 days to the day!! So we will see.....
Avatar m tn My entire life I have had moderate anxiety, the type that makes you quite nervous to do the most simple things in public. Never has it triggered anything more than a moderate panic attack that subsided shortly after removing myself from the situation. Recently however, while smoking weed, I felt like I was having a heart attack and possibly bleeding internally..
480448 tn?1426952138 For a person who is experiencing this for the first time...it can be VERY upsetting and disturbing. I was there before as well...the first time I went through this, I was convinced there was something wrong with my eyes. Everything just "looked" so weird, so odd. I almost felt like I was having out of body experiences...or was watching the world through a movie projector, instead of through my own eyes and mind.
Avatar n tn as soon as you notice a bump keep a close eye on it sometimes they go away but sometimes they get really big, i had a small lump in my arm pit and i tried squeezing it and nothing happened it just hurt, so i left it it got bigger and bigger i was convinced it would pop but it didnt, they can increase quite quicky in size.
Avatar n tn I have yet to find a definite answer, though I have had my hormones tested and discovered all of my hormones are out of balance. I'm in the process of trying bioidentical hormone replacement to see if that helps. Hope you find some answers.
Avatar m tn   I've been to an ENT (twice) who scoped it (twice) and said there was thick mucus in the back of my nasal cavity and that it was irritated.  I always feel like I have pressure in the back of my throat and actually have to "snort" (I know that sounds disgusting) very aggressively to finally dislodge some thick mucus so that the back of my upper throat/nasal passage feels better--sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
Avatar n tn I am concerned that the lack of acid in my stomach has destroyed many of the enzymes in my stomach depriving my brain and body of critical nutrients and I can't seem to get anyone to listen. My GI prescribed antibiotics and assures me that rats can thrive just fine with a sterile intestinal track. That makes me feel wonderful.. maybe I should remind him that rats can also chew through steel and eat ****.
Avatar m tn I have seen a lot of posts excoriating the effects of TX in order to convince people not to TX. Granted, these posts are usually from someone connected with the spamming of an herbal product, but this is even more egregious as it prevents people from seeking needed medical attention. I am very respectful that the decision to TX, or not, is very individual. To try and make a general case that TX is good or bad does not seem appropriate, not that I think you are doing this.
Avatar f tn She liked to smoke, she passed at 75 and spent a decade in her room smoking cigarettes and watching tv, because she wanted to. Putting my mom in an institution would have been like jail for her. I appreciate how much you miss your mom, but if things are as we are all led to believe , or want to believe your mom is happy and healthy right now. She's looking down at her wonderful caring daughter who is aging herself.
948349 tn?1294383837 I'm living in the middle of winter here in Alberta Canada. I am pretty sure it is highly unlikely a tick came along. This is the only means of exposure from her in that setting. Again it was casual, tears and sneeze or what was on her clothes are the only thing I may have come in contact. Or perhaps co-infections could be passed on casually? But I would assume they would have all kind of come together as one group. Right now I'm in a state of limbo for sure.
Avatar m tn Right now I'm just trying to face a few of my fears like being in the car, going out with friends, leaving town to other places.
Avatar m tn This forum is great in that most of the ppl on here look at it only one way, and that's that we are all in the same boat no matter how you got it. Unfortunately in the outside world the stigma is alive and kickin' hard. They don't only look at people like me who got it thru IV, but included in that is accidental needlesticks and infected thru a contaminated vial, those are still considered routes of IV technically.
Avatar m tn From a couple of the comments you've made so far, here and on other posts, you need to educate yourself about hepc, treatment and long term effects because your understanding of the disease in unrealistic. It doesn't matter how many blood transfusions you have. I doesn't matter if you empty you entire blood supply and replace it with non infected blood, you will NEVER be clear or cured. The virus lives in the liver and other places in the body. The ony cure for chronic hepc is treatment.
Avatar f tn I do not want to initiate any unnessary enquiry which could jeopardise the doctors careers but I definately want all of the doctors to have knowledge of the situation though so that they might think about this in the future. Im not sure if a general letter to my surgery practice manager detailing the events might be worthwhile if only to get my concerns across.
429155 tn?1205676864 Still not got much of an appitite though, I am taking lots of vitamins, and loads of water, smoking slashed in half.. I have just recieved this post and it is a bit of a worry. Hey, I've been clean for 3 weeks, and I just want to share what's going on, kind of to forwarn....I hope this doesn't happen to you...I started sleeping fine. after the initial withdrawls passed-after a week or so...then I started to have panic attacks and felt depressed at about 4 pm-6 pm every day.
Avatar n tn I have a specific type of emetophobia. I'm not afraid of throwing up in general, just afraid of throwing up in public. Sometimes I feel as if I would feel considerably better if I did just throw up. But I can't, no matter how bad I'm feeling. The fear started a few weeks after I had a stomach bug. When I had the bug, I was riding home from school on a Friday afternoon (I'm a high school student), and I threw up all over the bus. The thing is, it didn't affect me psychologically at all.
Avatar n tn I just started noticeing it in the middle of the nite...when im laying flat after a few gulps of water...a delayed....gurgle... i never noticed it during the day...what is IT??
Avatar n tn A dear friend of mine has this issue also, but she is in constant pain, she can feel the pain go down her arm and then her hand swells and a vessel pops and bruises instantly. She's been to every Dr. there is and no one has an answer. If anyone ever does get and actual diagnoses please share.
Avatar f tn All in all, I hope these side effects are worth it! I hope I see a difference in the migraines and maybe even the loss of appetite (hopefully)! If not, I'm definitly stopping this. I dont like feeling like I'm staring into space all day!!! Have a great weekend!!
603015 tn?1329866573 they can be any thoughts,but, of course in my case mostly highly depressing...... to me, this is such a normal habit that to hear someone ask about it is strange because ive been doing it my whole life...
Avatar n tn I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
Avatar m tn It has NOT been conclusively and irrevocably determined by a wide panel of scientific experts using repeatable tests in a variety of places that absolutely proves once and for all low level, ongoing viable viral persistence and reproduction occurs after SVR-ing (naturally or otherwise). Yes there have been reputable researchers and research that have strongly suggested that this may be happening (namely CASTILLO et al).
Avatar n tn My symtoms seem to migrate and alternate - a few days of warm sensations in legs and then a few days of left side headache. Very weird. My neuro doesn't have a clue (said its likely stress). I'm on antidepressent but doesn't seem to help anything. Has anyone had succeses with a holistic doctor practice? Any success with vitamins (B?). If so, any details would be much appreciated!
Avatar f tn It is hard to believe that a child, whom you probably remember as being honest and truthful pre-drug, is an accomplished liar. You have to bear in mind that the drug (opiate of any description) actually changes the physical and mental makeup, as part of its takeover, and the drug will do anything necessary to replenish its supply, so it's the drug and not your daughter who is lying to you.
Avatar n tn i always know where I am and that im dreaming and the places are always just reconstructed versions of places ive been (most of the time my school, place of work, city in general). The things i remember seeing are always so detailed and i remember everything the next morning. I enev woke up remembering the taste of wine i was given in my dream (and i only drink on holidays) I feel emotion in my dreams as well. I never have a problem getting to sleep and i dream almost instantly.
