May Be Stupid But I Really Don't Wanna Go To The Dr.?

May Be Stupid But I Really Don't Wanna Go To The Dr.? Topic: May Be Stupid But I Really Don't Wanna Go To The Dr.?

Question: I've been sick so much this season & don't want to go to the dr unless I NEED to since they're so antibiotic happy. I'm not sure if my symptoms are dr worthy or not. ~ swollen glands ~sore throat red w/o white spots so I doubt strep ~feels like I have a fever but it's below 97 ~nauseated w/ diarrhea ~white frothy phlegm ~sinus headache/pressure ~stuffy nose then runny (clear mucus) ~Violent cough that's producing phlegm from chest ~occasional tight feeling in chest ~Post nasal drip ~Chills ~Ear pressure & dull throbbing pain I have fibromyalgia & lupus. Well I had the flu & had a flu shot. Believe me it's not the flu. I may make an appt to see what it is but I've been on so many antibiotics this season that my Dr. isn't keen on giving me anymore & I've become allergic to some from overuse.

Seriously, go to the doctor! Explain to them your concerns about antibiotics. Usually they are good about explaining things and trying to work around it if they can if you explain yourself. But this sounds pretty bad. I don't know, maybe it is bronchitis or pneumonia, though I'm not sure if you get nauseated w/ diarrhea with that. But you have many terrible symptoms, and even if you have a fever, you need to see a doctor. There is too much going on for you not to. I'm sorry. Hope all goes well!

Hi, Hockey08-- If the fast food you are eating is only 1200 calories, you're doing great! Going off your diet for one day can actually be good for you! Your body will adapt to a "diet" and will adjust accordingly by "hanging on" to some calories for later. It may be harder to lose if you stay on a really restricted diet. Also, when dieting, eat only organic foods, grass fed beef, and pastured chickens. The other stuff is loaded with chemicals and toxins so your body will produce more fat cells to protect your organs from damage. You will feel so much better if you can do this and you may even lose your desire for the fast food. But bottom line, every once in a while, fast food won't be that harmful. Eat slowly and enjoy it!

no matter the conditions, you should never, as full grown woman, eat less than 1200 calories a day. It is very unhealthy. If you are young and very small, that might be OK, but usually not. Try staying at 1200 calories at a minimum to start. This way, your body will not go into starvation mode and will actually allow you to lose weight instead of screwing up your metabolism. As for your question, one pound is approximately equal to consuming 3500 calories. so, if you're at a deficit already, adn are losing weight, 1200 extra calories just means that every 3 weeks, you'll lose one less pound. However, it's not exactly that simple, as you are possibly in starvation ode anyway, and it has been shown that eating a "cheat" meal every once in a while can help keep your healthy metabolism going, so, I recommend eating a "cheat" meal every once in a while.

Rachel, you mentioned that the doctor isn't keen on giving you antibiotics, so I don't think you need to worry on that end. Some of your symptoms could be allergy or cold symptoms that might be relieved with over the counter meds. The nausea with diarrhea can also be due to mucus draining down the back of your throat and ending up in your digestive tract. The symptoms that concern me is your 'tightness in your chest' and productive cough. If you feel that the secretions you're coughing up are coming from your lungs and not from the back of your throat, you need to see your doctor. Anytime you have these two symptoms or shortness of breath, you need to be seen. Sometimes when you have allergy symptoms over an extended period of time or a viral infection, they can become a bacterial infection. Go see your doctor. It can't hurt, right? Hope you're feeling better soon!

GO TO THE DOCTOR! Taking care of your health is they're job! Honestly why wouldn't you have gone to the doctor already? I would hate to be living like that! Just go into an emergency check-up and see what they say! Sounds like a horrible flu to me!

Yes, some of the weight loss commercials are stupid. Actually, most commercials about beauty products/services are. It's not really the message that's bad, it's HOW they deliver the message. You can avertise weight loss without baiting people into believing that they will be shunned, hated and humiliated if they don't lose weight. Why not just promote health consciousness rather than vanity? It's really depressing. It's like this one ad on TV about this girl who doesn't have white underarms and when the boyfriend caught sight of them, he zoomed into the opposite direction. Sad. The ad sends the message that it takes that little to drive someone away. I know most people would think that ads are not real anyway, audiences are smarter and others should not be so sensitive about what they show on TV, that it's not harmful. True, it's not like an ad will change my entire perspective about things, and yes, it's not harmful. But, it's not harmless either.
