    Health Questions/Concerns

    Seems like a good time to start one of these. I'll sticky it for now, as I imagine it'll get some good activity.

    I'm only studying to be a pharmacist, so I'm nowhere near qualified to diagnose, but I'll be glad to help out with any questions that I can/have time for. And I know that there are a few other knowledgeable posters here as well.

    If you're feeling a little embarrassed about a problem, feel free to PM me. Trust me, I don't give a damn. I've seen A LOT.

    And I'm sure I don't have to say this, but there will be no insulting of other posters and their medical problems. You'd be surprised how sensitive some are about them, and it's perfectly justified.

    My mother is a doctor, so I could ask her some of these questions as well. She specializes in Pediatrician Cardiology, but she knows the basics.

    Yes, but it's obviously not common at all.

    We have mammary glands just like women, but they produce prolactin much more than we do.

    In extreme cases, the pituitary gland (secretes prolactin) will be stimulated and can increase our levels. Some medications that do this are thorazine, digoxin, and some prostate cancer drugs.

    Only voice questions or general neck related questions??

    Anyway was playing football and had a helmet to helmet collision, I went to the chiropractor and he said I had some strained muscles or something and that it would take 6 to 8 weeks to be pain free... That was like 9 or ten weeks ago, sometimes when I turn my neck to the left it hurts down the right side of my neck and sometimes on the nack side of my right shoulder.. It is also hard for me to pop my neck now when before it was really easy??? Any thoughts.....

    My right knee always bugs me after playing basketball so anything I can do about it? Also I get back pains and at times during the game. Anything I can do about that as well? Thanks.

    The knee bugs you in what way?

    As for the back: If you don't think it's some sort of spine problem, but rather a persistent muscle ache, I'd go with a little cocktail of medications that I've learned about. Depending on the severity, I'd say the max dose would be:

    two 500mg Tylenol (acetaminophen)
    three 200mg Motrin (ibuprofen)

    But you can start out with one and two, respectively. Just try to see what works for you, as those two will help a lot with the inflammation of the muscles in your back.

    Uhm, you know that big bump on your knee where it bends? (don't know any technical terms) Well under it, is another bump and it pains me so that I can't run as fast or jump as high and I tend to limp after/during ball practices.

    yeah i used to have that i think. or at least something similar. give your knee time to heal. for me it was even after i played ball my knees would hurt going upstairs, downstairs, even just walking. for me i realized it wasnt just the rest that i needed, i had to rework the way i jumped. i twist my left knee really bad every time i jump but for some reason i was able to jump higher. probably just the way the muscles go. now i can jump maybe a half foot shorter than before. if its not mechanics just give it a rest just for good measure.
