What are your ailments?

Recommended Posts

What in the name of fuck are eye floaters?

 

Its when you see little spots/specks, especially when looking at light colours. Its little pieces of debris which are floating through the vitreous fluid in the eyeball. They seem like pieces of dust or dirt but you cant wipe it away as its within the eye. They are normally harmless but can be a sign of a torn or detached retina. MY best mate kept getting floaters then they became much worse, she was seeing them all the time, luckily she went to the opticians who sent her to hospital right away. She had laser treatment that day to repair the tears. Very scary! She needed the other eye done at a later date too.

 

Which I do have, but is exactly NOT what I keeping telling them about but they dont fucking listen, so I gave up and lived with it. I have snow/static in my vision. A bit like when you turn your tv to channel 99 or whatever and there is fuck all here apart from b&w static. I've googled it and plenty others have the same thing but no one has found what it is. It's not getting worse so I just put up with it.

 

 

Wow that's so fucked up as I have the exact same thing mate! Just came on one day and never went away!!!

 

How are you at using a PC screen? I've always had problems with the contrast and brightness since I got this problem.

 

I have had my eyes checked, my brain scanned and still no answer... tbh its settled down a bit, but I was off work for 6 weeks as was completely debilatated by it at one point.

 

Docs have been useless with me too... any problems with back pain? I'm convinced its related to trapped back nerves!

 

Im ok with a PC screen but I do struggle reading the sky tv info boxes, like channel listings etc. I also struggle with red writing on a green background or visa versa but thats more a colour thing. I find it hard to focus on the sky tv thing which is odd as I've got good vision otherwise.

 

Back is fine other than the odd thing now and again. When you chuck two kids around as I do and fall alseep on the sofa I'm bound to to get some back pain!

 

Hmm thats pretty interesting as my problem is black & white, which makes using a PC screen a pain in the backside. Sounds like you have similar problems just slight variation on the colour thing.

 

Did yours just come on one day, and how did it start? Mine started with what I thought was a really bad migraine, then woke up the next day with completely fucked vision. Like I said its died down a bit but is still a constant battle as using a PC results in eye strain and makes me incredibly tired all the time... also developed a form a dyslexia as a result of it, and also concentration levels are very poor now a days

 

Nee idea. Can't remember now, must be about 6 years ago.

Get a bit of psoriasis on my knees and elbows and I'm blind as a bat without my lenses and that's about it. Had 1day off work in 5years.

 

Sods law. Make that 2 today, absolutely dying here with cold/a virus. Nearly fell over when I tried to get out of bed

Worst thing for you when you're totally fucked is staring at a monitor or telly.

Ally has only got one baaaaaaaall,

the other is in the RVI....

 

Ally has only got one baaaaall

The other he doesn't miss at all

The medics

To stop his headaches

Whipped it out when it grew small

 

I'll get me coat

 

He's not alone, SMO only has a bonus ball as well after having his sack savaged by an Alsatian when he was a younging. Allegedly his sack resembles Freddy Kruegers as well due to the scar tissue.

 

Don't think wacky's ever mention his Chelsea smile, although it's not where you'd think it might be.

It's from his tea towel holder through to his scrotum, Jissum Jim did it in the cell they shared up Acklington when wacky was serving time for kern crawling round the back of central station when he was trying to fund his glue sniffing habit, that's what happens when you don't put out for the prison puff!

I thought we agreed that we would never mention that on here, they were dark days.

 

The incident with the alla in your youth was just an unfortunate accident, its nothing to be ashamed of. If it wasn't for the nasty scarring your mother reckoned you couldn't even tell, thanks to the ceramic implant.

Genital herpes - latent for most of the time but used to burn like fuck when I was younger. Also gingivitis with halitosis but controlled with mouthwash. Mild tennis elbow. Otherwise I'm in pretty good nick.

Haha Dr's are fuckin useless!

 

I remember goign to one a couple of years back as was suffering from terrible insomnia... he asked:

 

"are you thinking of killing yourself"?

 

My response:

 

"erm no"

 

His response:

 

"Well I can't help you then"

 

So his recommendation to cure my insomnia was basically suicide... fuckin tosser lol!

Of all those ailments, the most devasting to a Glaswegian has got to be tennis elbow.

Well most of you know I was very ill last year. Very briefly I had a small day surgery op for carpal tunnel syndrome but the following day I fainted then after had a full on seizure. After some tests it was just thought to have been caused by a sudden drop in my BP. After that though I was very ill, I had so many symptoms it was almost unbelievable and extremely scary! For 3 months I woke up feeling sick and urging. I had lightheadness, racing heart, weakness, a tremor in my legs, gastro problems including a vile taste in my mouth all the time and chronic pain inbetween my shoulders blades which was put down to irritation of the esophagus.... I lost weight, I looked and felt completely shit. I got pneumonia, then several weeks later I got pelvic inflammatory disease....though I still had all the same basic symptoms all the way through those 6 months. The cause was never really found despite several trips to hospital and various tests. I just thanked god I started to feel better and went back to work at Christmas. Apart from the upper back pain which has now moved around to the side (never found the cause of this) I've been much more myself and more or less back to normal.

Until last night that is :icon_lol: It was a long day yesterday I admit, my father in laws funeral. Last night we all went out to dinner, I enjoyed the meal (mushroom and sweet pepper risotto in case you wandered :lol: ) Anyhow, very suddenly afterwards I felt sick and faint, I knew I was going to pass out...everything went black, but I manged to lie down on the ground outside the restaurant and raise my legs (I expect people thought I was drunk)!! I felt really sick and was in a cold sweat, urgh it was awful. This time though I stayed there until I felt a bit better, I was so scared of having another seizure. It bought it all back to me, I was so upset. I felt really sick after too but it passed and I slept well. Today I feel a little shakey but ok. I'm just scared stiff I am going to be ill again :lol: I was just starting to trust my body again now I'm back to square one.

:lol:...that sounds awful. My mother had a similar issue with lightheadedness racing heart and fainting. turns out her heart would start to palpatate and speed up to the point where it was beating too fast to pump blood, so she'd faint her heart would slow down and she'd wake up. she was an emergency room nurse (now retired) so it could have been stress ,and it happened a couple of times at work. not sure if its the same thing but, thought i'd mention it. hope you feel better, she was off for a bit with some heart meds but now seems to be fine but she still doesn't drink caffienated coffe or tea any more just in case.
