I have this tender “bubble” on my anus, is this something I should get checked out?

I have this tender “bubble” on my anus, is this something I should get checked out? I have some digestive issues so this kind of worries me. It is sore to the touch, I don’t know what it could be. I wanted to check with you guys before I booked a doctors appointment but I imagine that’s what I should do. To my knowledge it has only appeared in the last couple of day

Is it normal to have a death wish and to be consumed with the idea of death?

Is it normal to have a death wish and to be consumed with the idea of death? I seem to look for risky behavior all the time and pay for it in bad health? like example, if i shouldn’t take blood pressure pills because it could lower my blood pressure, it makes it a lot more attractive to do? Its like im attracted to things im not allowed to do. anything that will hurt my heart i will do because i like to see how much my body can actually handle. I dont have unprotected sex though because i am still a virgin – so i dont risk in that area. i dont want to pregnant but i like risking my health to the brink of death. I’ve had psychiatric help and they all say its apart of my Borderline Personality Disorder. Is that all this obsession is apart of, my disorder?

When I have sex with my partner, I don’t have orgasms?

Hello. The thing is, when I have sex with my partner, I don’t have orgasms. Most times he takes his time to try to make my climax. I get to that stage, but I’m still dry. Nothing comes out. I’m worried because when most of the ladies online climax, there’s the liquid that comes out of their vaginas. Please can you tell me what to do about it? It’s really making things tense between me and my partner

I have a constant pain in my right groin area which radiates to my inner thigh?

I have a constant pain in my right groin area which radiates to my inner thigh to my knee as a shooting pain. The groin is sensitive when I touch. This pain exists since 3 years. Over the years the pain has increased and extended around my hip and lower back. My kidney, bowel, bladder ,ovaries basically everything was checked ,but they could not find anything. I was only diagnosed with endometriosis at the beginning of these years. On an MRI 3 lymph nodes are visible (actually where the pain is comming from) all are around 10-12mm.
My question is that if these lymph nodes (or 1 of them) can cause the pain like pushing a nerve or something? How my groin can be examined to be able to know that the lymph nodes are ok and if any of them causing the pain? Is it possible to see if any of them effected by the endometriosis ?

My husband woke up with a two puncture wound, 2mm big, that looks like fang marks?

My husband woke up with a two puncture wound, 2mm big, that looks like fang marks. We were sleeping in the basement from 8am to 2pm. I do not have any marks on me. His wound does not hurt, is not red, and does not itch. I am worried it is a bat bite, though no one in the house saw a bat. (We also have 4 cats.) We live in Michigan. Urgent care doctor said it seemed to be a spider bite but I feel 2mm is too big for a spider.

General Information: No redness. No itchiness. Two puncture holes, 2mm in length. No known bat contact, but worried it is a bat bite. Slept in the basement from 8am-2pm.

I had unprotected sex and the next morning I had a couple vaginal sores?

I had unprotected sex and the next morning I had a couple vaginal sores. I also just finished my antibiotic that morning for strep throat. I’ve heard people say that it takes herpes longer than a few hours to show up so I wasn’t worried. But it’s been a week and the two sores are still there and now there’s another one. I also shaved and got a few ingrown hairs along my pubic line so maybe they’re ingrown hairs? Also was recently exposed to someone with a staph infection. I have an appointment but it’s not for a few days so I was hoping to get an opinion here before
then. Thanks!

A hooker performed unprotected oral sex on me?

A hooker performed unprotected oral sex on me. We put a condom on and had sex. The next morning the shaft of my penis stings and burns. It has subsided a significant amount but still stings and burns 12 days past the exposure. I had a complete STD test panel completed two days ago- five days after exposure. Everything came back negative. There are no clear symptoms no blisters , no sores, no rash. The skin does not look red or inflamed any way. It does not hurt to urinate. Do you have any idea what is causing this? It still stings 12 days after contact. Many post around net have similar stories indicating this is some unknown virus that has penetrated the skin ( i did have a small nic from shaving in area night before)

I felt like vomiting, but I thought that it was because of the fatigue?

On the night of 9th May, I was busy doing work. I felt like vomiting, but I thought that it was because of the fatigue. I ordered a pasta from outside. I ate a little bit and after 20 minutes, I started vomiting. The vomiting occurred 9 times till the morning, waking up every hour or so to vomit. On the 8th time, the vomiting had blood coming out too. I vomited once more after that but no blood came out. I went to GP, the doctor who gave me a medicine called “Cyclizine”, which was so strong. She also asked me to suck ice cubes. Since that day till this moment, I get nausea every day. I do not vomit, but the feeling of nausea is strong, which makes me feel that I want to vomit. I do hear some noise in my stomach when its moving and I keep on bleaching burping a lot. When I burp, I feel like there is something at the top of my stomach that goes up and makes me burp. I do not feel comfortable at all and when I sleep if I sleep on left side, I feel not bad, but if I sleep on right side, it feels worse. I did take from chemist counter something called “Pepto-Bismol” and tried “Gaviscon”, but did not get better. This is now has been happening for around 5 weeks. Any advice for this nausea?
Just for your note, I am a 21 years old male.

Suffering from shortness of breath associated with high blood pressure?

I am a 60-year-old woman suffering from a condition that can be described as shortness of breath associated with high blood pressure (it goes as high as 180+/120 systolic/diastolic). This problem has started about three months ago and it continues with no improvement. The shortness of breath starts when I am standing or walking and I get tired quickly. To my knowledge, I have never suffered from shortness of breath or blood pressure before.

It is striking to me that all examinations about heart and lungs as well as test such as ECG, echocardiogram, blood test (complete, thromboses, fats, diabetes), spirometry, X-ray lungs, ultrasound (abdominal, thyroid), EGD of stomach, etc, all give normal results. Doctors do not find an apparent cause and relate my condition to emotional/stress. They prescribed some medication such as (Faverin 100mg and Sedoxil) which did not have any results except for making me feel sleepy all day long. In the last three days I started medication against high blood pressure.

Additional observations: I have observed that blood pressure is high when I get shortness of breath, I get tired quickly unless I walk very slowly. I also feel better in fresh places and I cannot stand in a hot or sunny place.

I wonder if you could help me with a second opinion and some advice to follow. Thank you!

I have had an increasing level of pain. Localized on the back left side of my head?

I have had an increasing level of pain. Localized on the back left side of my head. From the base of my neck rising to the base of the skull. From there it would spike to my eardrum or the upper back (yes) corner of my head. That corner has felt like I was hit with a club, very sore for a couple of weeks and has grown in size, (no swelling or visible redness). There has been some swelling all around the area which I have used ice and heat and that helped. My throat has a muscle soreness about half/center also has been difficult to swallow. The VA helps me and I am very grateful. Today they found a redness around the left eardrum and a little dampness on the drum. I was given an antibiotic for 7 days. I have taken 2 so far. In the last few hours the eardrum pain seems to have subsided but the pain on my head has grown. The area has grown in size to about 3″ and seems to be the scalp only. No other relief from pain is noticed. I am 65 and worked physically all my days so my back and all of my joints ach. We
