    Does this sound crazy to you?

    After a lot of study and research I plan to be frozen on my death.  EVERYONE I have told about this says that is crazy.  They keep telling me that once you die and are in heaven or hell in my case you can not get out.  You can NEVER come back to life.  

    I try to explain my reasoning for being frozen with this story.  Say it is 1921 and a doctor says that someday when you have a heart problem, a doctor will cut the heart out of a dead person, then cut your heart out, replace it with the heart from the dead person and you will continue to live.   In 1921 that doctor would have been labeled as totally crazy and probably lose his/her license to practice medicine.  100 years later, this is a common medical practice.

    My point is that medicine makes rapid advances and no one can predict what can be done in the future.  They might find a way cure what killed you and revive you if your body is still in the same condition as when you died.  I was also worried that freezing will destroy all the cells in your body.  That is not the case anymore.  When you are frozen, almost all the water in your cells is replaced with an antifreeze solution that will not destroy your cells.  What little damage is done can be fixed NOW with nanocomputers.

    Does what I plan to do sound crazy to you?  Your opinion please.

    Why would a second MRI be requested? ?

    I got an MRI without contrast a little over a week ago and the hospital wants me to come in for a second MRI with contrast this time and that’s all they’re telling me. 

    Why would a second MRI be requested? Does that mean they found something?

    Why shouldn’t you induce vomiting?

    Is it because you can choke to death?

    Having a colonoscopy on April 15th. Any tips/advice/reassurance?

    Hi all! I am a 21 year old female having a colonoscopy on April 15th. I have been having bowel issues on and off for about 3 years and the doctor recommended that I do a colonoscopy to find out what is causing my issues. Have any of you had one and if so, how was it? Do you have any tips for me? I am a bit nervous about complications like perforated bowel, bleeding, etc. but I have heard that complications are super rare. My gastroenterologist has been in practice for 35 years so I feel like I can trust him. Thanks in advance!

    Medication concerns? (Montelukast)?

    I don't wanna go too deep into detail and I wanna keep this short. I (15 F) went to my doctor today and he prescribed me Singulair for my allergies as well as my asthma. He had already told me that it can cause some unpleasant effects but I wanted to know more so I looked it up. I was very shocked to see that the side effects consisted of things such as depression, suicidal thoughts, aggression, confusion, vivid nightmares, as well as many others... 

    I also looked at a few reviews and they all claimed to experience these when taking the medication, so it seems like it's rather common. My medication hasn't come into my pharmacy yet so I haven't taken it, but now I'm doubting whether I should even take it at all. I don't want to experience these things, but I have to take the medication, right? 

    I'm probably just being anxious and it may not even be as bad as people say it is, but I just wanna know what others think about this.

    Will I pass my drug test?

    I smoked pot on and off for the last 8 months, 5-6 times a week but when I would smoke it was just a couple hits. Typically did not smoke more than a gram in a week. I work out 3 times a week and im 22 years old. I have a drug test in 8 days and I have not smoked in 13 days. Am I screwed? If so, any suggestions for permanent detox kits? I don't just want something that will cover it up, but something that will actually get it out of my system. HELP!

    How long for Aspirin to thin blood?

    How long does it take from taking the first doses of Aspirin to start thinning blood, even just slightly?

    Say you take 600mg every 4 hours, 2400mg a day.

    Would it have an effect on your blood as soon as it hits your system, even the tiniest, or does it take a while before it does anything?

    Is it possible to be permanently brain damaged from a summer of heavy drug usage? ?

    A few years ago in the summer I know someone who did lots of different kinds of drugs and pills like molly, acid, xanax, weed, alcohol and possibly other drugs they weren't aware of taking. Thankfully they never had an overdose but after going through that partying period they were very forgetful, retaking their steps and overall off for about a year. They seem to be doing much better now but they do have their moments occasionally. They haven't done any drugs for over 4 years now from my knowledge but has me wondering if they possibly gone through permanent brain damage? Has anyone or someone they know gone through something similar, if so how are they doing now? Is there anything I can do to help them or they can do for themselves? I just want to see them be their best self like they were before? I feel like this situation has unknowingly traumatize them. So any suggestions would be helpful! Thank you

    Help!  Blood sugar came back at 108?

    I'm 29, male, healthy weight, low body fat %, low alcohol intake, no smoking or drugs.

       

    Went for blood work, and my fasting blood sugar was 108, in the pre-diabetic range.  Neither my parents nor their siblings have diabetes or blood sugar issues, even the ones who are overweight.  Wtf??  Blood sugar has been rising about 4 points per year over the past 5 years.

       

    Cholesterol levels were perfect, despite family history of high cholesterol.  LDL was 97, HDL 68, Triglycerides 66.  No other abnormalities.

       

    My diet is healthy with lots of vegetables, whole grains, more moderate amounts of lean meat and fruit, and not a lot of added sugars, white carbs, red meat, or packaged foods.  I do a lot of cooking at home, especially during the pandemic.

       

    As far as exercise goes, During most weeks, I do moderate to intense cardio 35-45 minutes 4 days a week, and weight lifting 2 times per week.  I also do a lot of walking - so no shortage of exercise.

       

    So I've basically been doing everything that doctors would recommend.  He is sending me for an HbA1c in 6 months.

       

    So my question is this:  What tends to cause this, given my habits and young age?  Can I possibly have insulin resistance despite it not running in the family?

    Are COVID vaccines safe to get?

    My parents are both getting their first dose of the COVID vaccine in a couple days. I am really scared though. I have heard so many things about COVID vaccines - good and bad. 

    I have read news stories of people dying not long after their first dose. Ages vary - some have been older, some haven't been all that old. I have also heard of people not dying, but getting quite sick. A very close friend of mine experienced that in their family. A set of their grandparents each received the vaccine and both got very ill and required hospitalization. They are ok now, but that was scary.

    My parents are both older - mom late 50s, dad early 60s. They both have health issues too. My mom has severe asthma and is not a healthy weight (not like morbidly obese, but definitely overweight). My dad is a diabetic, has heart disease (has a defibrillator and stents) and has high blood pressure. My dad's heart specialist said he should get the vaccine and my mom's regular doctor said she should.

    On the flip side, my one supervisor got it and he had zero issues. Not one side effect and is doing well. He also said most people do just fine and don't have any serious or fatal complications. He said most side effects are mild and short-lived (typically a headache or something or a reaction around the injection site such as a bruise or something).

    I am just scared. Will they be ok/safe? One lady I heard about dying was overweight, diabetic and in her 50s.
