382 cousinbebop Your immune system is one of the greatest assets you have and you never thank it. In your life, your body will autonomously eradicate between 6-10 cancers without your realising. It will fight your infections, repair micro traumas and police the entire population of billions of cells in your body without your asking. All it requests in return is a little bit of health to preserve it. Stop smoking, lose weight. Maybe exercise a little. Don't drink so much. Your diet is so much more important that you realise.
2602 golson3 Nurse here. If you're an alcoholic that's admitted to the hospital, don't lie about how much you drink. There are drugs we can give you to take the edge off of withdrawals. It's safer for you and safer for us. We're not judging you, we have safety in mind.
4734 serac145 Keep an eye on your weight. Rapid unintentional weight loss is often a sign something serious is up.
1320 SmthgWicked If your kid has a fever, and you give them Tylenol or Ibuprofen to bring it down, they are STILL. FUCKING. SICK. You're only treating symptoms temporarily, not curing anything. For the love of everything holy, do not give them Tylenol and send them to school/daycare/sports/birthday parties/etc. to become patient zero and infect everyone else.
988 Storfax If you don't treat your hearing loss early, eventually you'll wish you did. The brain loses connection to sounds and impairs your ability to understand speech more and more the longer you go with untreated Hearing loss.
2717 peateargriffon Doctor here: Most important rule: Know your own history and drugs. Our EMRs are too inefficient to depend on, especially if you've been to many different institutions.
3377 noobwithboobs It's significantly more effective to prevent cancer than it is to treat it, but the world isn't interested because most people just want a pill to fix their problems. Don't smoke. Wear sunscreen. Don't drink excessively. Get a bit of exercise and eat some goddamn vegetables. Do those and *bam!*, huge drop in cancer risk, but nobody wants to hear it.
1097 hebrewstwelve The pregnancy test you get in the ER is no different from the one at the store and equally accurate.
2999 doodlebugkisses Viral infections cannot be treated with antibiotics.
2327 AllSpunOut Doctor here. Keep things out of your ears. Seriously.

1889 Valproic_acid Smoking will kill you. "Nah... cancer won't get to me" you might say, and you'd be statistically right. It'll be your heart. In the simplest of terms, smoking makes your arteries rigid, so as they progressively get filled with fat, instead of increasing their diameter they'll just get stuffed until no more blood can get through and you'll be done. If you're lucky you'll get some chest pains beforehand but that's not always the case. "Joke's on you sucka! I got a heart attack and survived, death ain't got shit on me!" Welcome to the world of chronic heart failure where from now on every day that goes by your heart will be less a pump and more a container, until you get out of breath from just speaking and eventually die. There's no going back. Please stop smoking. Edit: "That only happens to chainsmokers, I only smoke ocassionaly". https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2865193/]
174 Prozacna Volunteer SAR-ship crewmember here; when you suspect whoever is lying down is not breathing by themselves, begin CPR immiditially AND DO NOT STOP until medical professional arrives, even if this means that you have to go on for several hours. We do not perform CPR to have the patient miraculously wake up and make out with us, we do this to sustain the most vital bodily function - the circulation of oxygen to the brain - until we can get that person to a hospital.
1653 MissileManatee STAY AT HOME WITH NOROVIRUS. Call and ask for advice don't come in and infect a bunch of possibly already ill people
2992 autumnx Mental illness can be as serious as a physical one. Get treated. You wouldn't let a broken leg go.
319 2bad4uks Dentist here: Just because a tooth ache goes away, doesn't mean it's all better. Many times It's the calm before the abscess. It goes from dying, to dead, to abscessed in as fast as a day or sooner.
1039 rxjen Drug allergies and side effects are not the same thing. It makes you look like a crazy person when you have 20 allergies and 19 of the reactions are nausea.
996 orchidbonsai 1. Reverse cowgirl may be a fun position for you but please be careful girls. 2. Blood in your pee when not associated with pain and fever is something you need to get checked out. 3. Get that new ugly mole checked, especially if it is painful or bleeds spontaneously. 4. Boys, if you notice some irregularity / growth in your balls PLEASE get it checked early. If you ball is the size of a grapefruit, ignoring it will not make it go away, it will just increase the risk of worse news than that you were fearing. It is much better to be labelled a 'worried well' than the alternative. If we are stressed or rushed for time its not personal, its the system. We may not always say it but we are grateful for those who take responsibility for their health.
1315 Richard-Hindquarters The human rectum is nightmarishly elastic.
870 AVDutch Doc here. If you suspect a heart attack take an aspirin or two. Not ibuprofen, not paracetamol, not some other dumbass analgesic/painkiller, an actual aspirin. Also get yourself to a hospital (duh). But that aspirin might save your life. Edit: Yes, chewing is better but if you swallow it whole that will also work in a pinch. It's much easier to remember 'take an aspirin', especially if you're panicking, than to also worry about how to take it. Aspirin falls apart quite easily in stomach acid, and it gets absorbed through the linings of your stomach either way. Always keep things as simple as you can, and get the basics down first. In a pinch you are much more likely to recall a random person on reddit saying: heart attack = aspirin, than you are to also remember 'and don't forget to chew.'
