  • Any USB Sound Adapters suitable for Chromebooks?

    The headphone jack in my HP Chromebook no longer works. I purchased a Sabrent USB External Stereo Sound Adapter and connected my headphones. The computer registers that there is a USB audio device connected to it, but won't register my headphones (though the headphones do make a clicking sound when I insert them into the device). Any advice??

  • Car tape deck not working properly?

    I have a 2002 Buick LeSabre & recently I was having trouble with it playing my tape that I hook up to my iPod. I bought a new tape, but then a couple days later it kept spitting it out, & now the actual audio is messed up. It sounds fuzzy and it's not playing the music properly. I assumed I needed to clean the player so I bought a Scotch tape cleaner but it's still doing the same thing. Now what?

  • What's wrong with my ear & throat?

    I was sick for a week with what I thought to be the flu and an ear infection. I was feverish and sweating a lot, had a sore throat and it hurt to swallow, my ears hurt and felt clogged, and I was just generally really sick. I went to the doctor and my right ear was infected so I was given 5 days worth of antibiotics. It's been 6 days since Ive finished those off and my left ear is still clogged and my throat is still very sore and it's painful to swallow. Any idea what's wrong?

  • Is it normal to PMS for this long?

    I PMS horribly for 10-14 days before I get my period. It's pretty bad, and I've recently started taking Deplin to help absorb my other medications to help with it, but it doesn't seem to be working. Is it even normal to PMS for this long?

  • Tongue web piercing irritation?

    I've had my tongue web pierced for a little over a year now, & just a few days ago I noticed the gum area around/underneath it has been irritated and painful. It's progressively gotten worse; now a section of gum and tissue on one side is swollen, red, and even white in one area where the barbell must be irritating it. I don't know why it's suddenly begun to do this. Any advice besides taking it out?

  • Are my allergy shots doing more harm than good?

    Since October 2010, I've been getting 3 allergy shots a week [I'm allergic to a TON of things]. I always have a pretty bad reaction to the shot for weeds & grasses. Sometimes the injection spot will swell to the size of a plum, and both of my arms get very itchy. When they add Benadryl into the injection, it's not as bad, but when they don't it's awful. The swelling lasts for at least 24 hours. My allergies have been very severe even though it's winter. Could the shots be contributing to my allergies?

  • How exactly is a typical abortion performed?

    I'm pro-choice, but I've been seeing different ways in which an abortion is perfomed and what the fetus looks like after it is aborted. For example, there are pictures of dismembered fetuses & I've heard something about the brain being vaccumed out. What is the typical, actual way in which it's done?

  • Found a orphan baby vole?

    Today at the park I saw a dead vole. A few feet up, I found a baby vole. I couldn't leave him there alone so I took him home. He's in an old hamster cage with straw, grass, leaves, and a kleenex box. He's nibbled on some leaves but I don't know how to give him water (I have eye drop pipettes but he wouldn't go for it). I also have old hamster food with little seeds. He keeps rolling around constantly. Advice??

  • Cure for a sore throat?

    My allergies have been very severe for the past month [I think my new cat has contributed, since there isn't any abundant pollen outdoors this time of year] and I've been taking up to 4 allergy pills a day (I know this is unhealthy; save the lecture). Some days my nose won't run & I can breathe through it but I've had a very sore throat for a month to the point where it hurts to talk. Any remedies for this? Cough drops & tea don't work. Oh, and I love my cat & am not getting rid of him.

  • Do allergy shots work?

    I'm allergic to my cat & it's really hard to deal with. I've tired just about every allergy pill & spray out there, so do the shots work?

  • Better allergy medication?

    I just got a kitten a couple months ago & am very allergic to him (sadly, I loveee cats). I take Equate usually (well I take any kind of generic allergy pill), and it's pretty good. It tones down my sneezing, and makes my eyes less itchy. But my throat is constantly sore & during the night my allergies are horrible. Sometimes I take 3 pills a day. Are there any other good meds or shots or anything? I've tried Claritin, Benadryl, Zyrtec, and a few of those nasal sprays.

  • How to fix damaged phone?

    My phone had gotten a little damaged a while ago so that when I pressed below the touch screen, the screen went sort of negative & everything became distorted. I dropped it last night (I'm an idiot) & it did the same thing but stopped after a few seconds. Then today it decided to remain in the damaged state permanently. Is there anything I can do to fix this without getting a new phone?

  • Plaque on tongue web piercing?

    Both balls on the barbell of my tongue web piercing are coated with plaque. It's gross & really annoying. I rinse with diluted mouthwash after I eat & brush more than usual, but the plaque still builds up. I've tried gently brushing it off, but it didn't work. Any advice?

  • Can't stick out tongue w/ new piercing?

    I got my tongue web pierced 3 days ago. I used to be able to stick my tongue out really far, but now I can barely stick it out past my lower lip because it hurts & I'm scared I'll rip the piercing out if I try to stick it out more. Is this just because it's healing?

  • Tongue web piercing experience?

    I really want my tongue web pierced but I'm veryy scared. I have my septum pierced & that hurt a lot for me (I also didn't get it right at the tip of the nose), so what is the web compared to that, if anyone knows? The clamps scare me more than the needle, also. Just tell me your experience :) (also, what's the chance of it getting ripped out?)

  • When should I clean my septum?

    I got it pierced (YAY!) about 3 hours ago. When should I clean it for the first time? I have some dried blood up there so it's kind of annoying right now.

  • Unable to get septum pierced?

    I went to get my septum pierced & the piercer checked me out and said he couldn't find the "sweet spot" because of how my nose is built & that there is too much cartilage to pierce it. It's the only facial piercing I really want, so I'm pretty upset. Should I go to other piercers and get their opinions also? I really want this, and waited 2 years so get it.

  • Will stainless steel cause an infection?

    I'm allergic to nickel, and I'm planning on getting my septum and conch done in 2 weeks. I know the piercer generally uses stainless steel for these piercings (or gold for the conch), but my parents still say stainless steel causes nickel allergies. I haven't read about any bad infections with stainless steel, but now I'm concerned. Will stainless steel cause an infection for me?
