Want to play doctor?

So, I'm tired of looking things up online and coming to the conclusion that I'm at death's door. Here are my non-mental ailments! Let's diagnose:

1. Went to Mexico. Was fine for duration of trip. Returned and about 2-3 days later have had what I can only think of as IBS. I was going from shitting rocks to peeing out my bumhole. Also started very gassy, but it's subsiding like the other symptoms after about 2 weeks. For added fun, my poo had white dots in it that I thought could be a parasite. Apparently some slow-release pills will do this, though, and that was the cause. This is so much poo talk I'm grossing myself out. I think it may be viral and I got it from the plane. Seems to be gone.

2. I have a small light recurring lump on my tongue. it is irritatingly sore (edit when I keep rubbing it on my teeth. It's only in one specific spot - where the tastebuds meet the smooth part of the tongue. It comes out frequently with acidy foods (tomato may be the culprit... or pineapple. Trying to narrow it down. Need to order pizza with only one or the other). I try not to, but inevitably mess with it in my mouth because it feels weird, and I think that's why it takes a while to go away (like, maybe a week) and comes out roughly every couple of months, possibly tied to hormonal changes. (Edit If I actively do not mess with it, it takes about 3 days to settle down I need to track it more. Dr. thinks it's probably an inflamed tastebud (edit because it is not blister-like at all, and since it seems to be tied in with acidic foods. I have had cankers on the sides of the inside of my mouth from time to time, but am wondering if anyone has had tongue cankers and could make suggestions. I have looked up photos, including HPV (edit: which I have read about and talked with a few professionals about), and don't really see anything that is 100% identical. Also, wondering if I absentmindedly bite the tip of my tongue enough to irritate it and make this happen, because I may do that (further observational research required). (Edit anyone else ever get inflamed tastebud? Twice when this happens I have been able to clearly identify a few buds on the right to be slightly inflamed. Can stress change spit acidity?

3. My gums are freakin itchy. This started happening very recently. I thought it was gingivitis initially, but I literally went to a dentist two months ago, and he said I had less plaque than what is normal, but that my gums are slightly receded. I have been stressed lately, so I'm thinking I might be grinding my teeth based on basic internet research. Started mainly on two particular gums (adjacent to canines), but seems to be all of them in general. When the one gum was itchy, I started using peroxyl once a day to ensure I sleep with superclean mouth. it's now day four of itch and it's all the fuck over. I don't think it's psychosomatic. I almost wanted it to be so I could meditate myself out of feeling it. Any of you clenchers or grinders?

Other than that, I found out that my ankle pain I was getting for years when running/particularly weighty turned out to be arthritis. It would swell kind of balloon like and get uncomfortable to bend. Fuckers had me go to physio for nothing, basically, for years.

Swollen taste bud? Canker? STD? What the hell is that? Almost feels like keloid (or however you spell it)

Well, not yet, but I will try harder. Turns out I think I am (oddly) sucking the air out of my closed mouth. I caught myself doing it today. Was relieving the itchy. The moment I released, it was worse. So it is not unlike giving the inside of my mouth it's own hickey. Nice to know there is a next level of self-loving.

Look on the bright side, Jinxy. Thank goodness it isn’t tongue cooties.

Amen.

Oh, not all of it, but thank you. I just wish I didn't have angry tastebud. I may have found my next internet handle though.

Does talking make your tastebud flare up?

No. I used to bite my tongue nervously though. And could have done permanent damage that way. It flared up and was gone within 3 days when I actively did not aggravate it.

Looking at that pic, I'm curious = do you have tongue piercing? If so, perhaps you are developing a reaction to the metal stud.

I did. It is further back. I am more confident it is tomatoes. I ate some, damn swelling started up slightly to the right. Same damn thing. I am annoyed because I love tomatoes. Fuck you body, but also thank you for allowing me to continue eating genetically modified wheat.

Only took me 2 or 3 days to get the joke. I would give you a point, but it is untimely now.

That's okay. I wasn't sure that anyone would get it, considering my serious nature here.

So, fed up with the itchy gums, I popped into my dentist. Thank god I'm partially subsidized. $75 for five minutes. He looked in my mouth at my "itchy gums" and said he didn't see any sign of grinding or clenching, and suspects it is an allergy. I described my swollen taste bud. He questioned if it was, indeed a swollen taste bud, until I showed him the pic. Yep. That's a swollen taste bud." he says, as his wife rings me through. So now I wait for the 28th to roll around to get my doc to refer me to an allergist. On the plus side, this literally explains all three weird things in one swoop. Yay?

Amen.

Be careful, Oracular! It will also kill your brain cells and you may not be able to finish that book!

Haha so, now dr mom thinks I am overmedicated, and er doctor has decided it is stress. Never knew you could get cool symptoms like swollen taste buds and hives and numb tongue from stress.

When doctors don't know the cause of an ailment, they tell you it's due to stress. That's their way of telling you that they don't know what is causing the problem.

Years ago, I got sicker than a dog and my doctor put me in the hospital. I stayed four days and they ran a battery of tests. At the end, the diagnosis was stress.

Amen.

Oh, man. I had photophobia and waves of violent retching. This was accompanied by the most excruciating headache I’d ever had before, or since. Every time I heaved, it felt like my head would explode.

Amen.

Sounds awful. You hadn't been thinking of The Loretta, had you?

Or maybe it was a kidney stone.

No and no. It was stress. My doctor said so. To my face. And he didn’t have his fingers crossed. I know, ‘cause I looked. He also crossed his heart and hoped to die.

Amen.

Do you find it interesting that they run all these tests and only when all the tests are negative do they tell you that the cause is stress? In other words, there's no test for stress!
