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?

Is Citalopram causing these problems?

My boyfriend of almost over 2 years became depressed in October 2017, he continued to tell me he loved me and stuff and it was all cause by him having extremely poor friends who would make him anxious and lonely. He finally got the courage to go to the doctor in March 2018 and the doctor prescribed him citalopram and everything was okay, he got his dose upped from 10mg to 20mg and everything seemed okay but then he suddenly starting getting really bad side effects like severe paranoia and vivid nightmares of people he loves dying due to him. He started telling me he wasn’t good enough for me and never was and I reassured him he was amazing. Then out of the blue last week he just dumped me with no reason, he said he doesn’t know what he’s doing anymore and he’s not himself and doesn’t like it. He still messages me and tells me he still loves me but can’t be with me because he can’t cope with anything and is very paranoid. He wants to change his pills due to how bad they have made him. Are the pills causing these problems or is he just thinking that they are? I don’t really know who to ask and a doctor seems like the best option as they are trained and know what is going on

I am scared of getting a blood test, what should I do?

I went to my doctor yesterday, he thinks I may have a thyroid problem and wants to send me do blood tests. But I am afraid of doing it. I have always hated the sight of blood even seeing it on TV is too much for me. and just the idea of getting a needle in me drives me out of my mind. i am afraid when they needle me I’ll freak out and run or faint. Thinking of skipping the blood test. Is there something I can do. thanks

I’ve started to get heart palpitations and food makes me nauseous?

My entire life I’ve gone without health issues and then suddenly this year it’s been like I’ve become a completely different person.
It started about 10 months ago/at the start of the year.
Food makes me sick and nauseous. The smell of it, being near it and even when eating – I’d say 90% of the time.
That has been my biggest issue but in the past 2-4 months I’ve started to get heart palpitations that last up to 10 yours straight and just random heart flutter.
I get enough sleep but my undereye circles are insane. Sometimes I’m abnormally pale but then suddenly my face starts burning up and it feels like it has a fever. (Only my face, my body does not feel feverish.)
Generally I regularly feel nauseous and sick, even without food causing it. Just randomly.

Note that I am not pregnant or anything of the sorts.

Experiencing painless bumps on penis, tests all negative, need second doctor opinion?

A few weeks ago, i experienced a few bumps on the glans of my penis, they had a small head to them, and within 36 hours had scabbed up. There was absolutely no pain with them or itching. They never opened up or oozed or anything. Now four weeks later they are practically healed, except for some raised skin where they used to be. I understand that this is a sensitive area and these bumps may take a little while to subside.

This is the second time this has happened. Both times I went to a clinic, and had it looked at. Neither time was the doctor able to tell me what he thinks it was. I got full std checks, including hsv, and those came back negative. In your experience, what can cause something like this to happen? Could it just be some sort of skin condition, an infection, or fungal? I just cant see to find anyone that knows, or anyone who is familiar with painless bumps on the glans of penis.

Last, Ive been experiencing tightness in my inner thighs throughout this process. I cant shake it. I’m starting to think that maybe its all mental, but my legs do feel tight. And at times i had some perineal discomfort. I appreciate you taking the time, just looking for some advice or guidance, as what Ive gotten so far has been underwhelming to say the least

I think I have onychophagia, I thought I could stop this, please advise?

I think i have onychophagia (?). I’ve mostly stopped biting my nails on my hands. My problem is my toes, and that i’ve graduated to using tools. pocket knife, trimming scissors…

I’ve basically removed the nails from 7 toes. When it heals into a faux nail (hard skin), I rip that right off. I don’t disinfect or bandage or anything, I just put socks right over it and go to work. I don’t know how i haven’t got a major infection by now.

What do I need to do. It hurts, but that doesn’t stop me. I stopped on my hands, i thought i could stop this. I can’t.

I have been suffering from a range of problems, my GP says it is mental, need second opinion?

For the last few years I have been suffering from a range of problems. Mostly mental things like brain fog, confusion, inability to focus and think straight. Also a lot of muscle aches and weakness. I find it particularly hard to walk up and down stairs because my legs and lower back seem weak and wobbly and I have difficultly balancing/controlling movement. I also often drop things especially when feeling particularly weak. I am lethargic, shaky and sometimes get a tightness in chest/restrictive feeling in throat. This seems strange for someone who is relatively young, fit and healthy. I recently got blood test results from my GP who tells me it is all in my head since nothing is showing up in blood tests. I have had full blood count, iron, b12, glucose, liver function, thyroid function, CRP and ESR. All are normal. I had slightly low vit D about 6 months ago despite being the outdoorsy type but I have been having a D3 supplement since then to treat that. Is there anything else that could be wrong with me that wouldn’t be showing up on these tests? I will be looking for a new GP soon but I need to know what sort of things to ask them. I really feel that there is something seriously wrong. Surely a 30 year old woman should not be such a physical and mental cripple! I also often get things like coughing up greenish grey sticky gunk in the mornings and pustules on face and in hair and shoulder and bottom. It seems like at least once a month I get swollen lymph nodes and am also prone to abscesses under arms and in groin area. These aren’t as worrisome as other symptoms but I am just generally pale, weak, tired and unwell!

I cannot remember old things as well as things I’ve done three days ago?

I believe I have a bad memory and I noticed that I’m very forgetful. I will list a few incidents that happened to me: I was once handed a paper in which I was asked to write all of my classmates names and I could not remember my friend’s last name eventually I had to pass that paper to someone else as I was incapable of remembering. I take a lot of time to memorize but I easily forget it all. My friend’s remember things I’ve said and done that I myself do not remember. Above all when I try to recollect my memories and try to remember them clearly i cannot it is as if a cloud was inside my brain preventing me from remembering things clearly, It feels blurry it’s a weird feeling I cannot put in words but I just cannot seem to collect my memory properly. I cannot remember old things as well as things I’ve done three days ago. It does not mean I have forgotten everything but it’s as if I forget more than anyone around me. Please help me. I am not stressed as of now And I do not have diabetes I do not suffer from any illness But I do have allergy and I have anxiety but do not suffer from it on regular basis.

I am in a deep pain and stress due to the lower right Rib pain?

I am a 37 year old male.
I have two main problems:
1. Lower right Rib pain and tension.
2. Urinary Incontinence.

1. Lower right Rib pain.
I am in a deep pain and stress due to the lower right Rib pain i am experiencing since 10 years. I had Xray and ultrasound recently and the results are normal. Will CT scan or MRI reveal any muscle damage/ dislocation to my Rib?
Before that i would like to tell my medical history, i have suffered from Phobia, anxiety, major depression It took a toll on my health and most importantly caused muscle tensions and migraine headaches…I feel my lower right rib has been deformed due to continuous tension over the years, It has compressed more inside the body and i feel poky and pain while breathing and sitting.There is redness is that area.
when i touch the right and left ribs, i can see the difference in their positioning….the left rib can be felt and seen in normal position, whereas the right rib is compressed inside and i don’t feel the rib bones as much as the left side.
I am taking SSRI antidepressant called Lexapro (for anxiety, depression), and it helps 50% in reducing the tension but not enough to relax that area.
What should i do? I have taken Baclofen and it helps to some extent but makes me sleep for long hours and some drowsiness.
at times i feel like taking Muscle relaxants to relax those lower right rib but i know they can be addicting and harmful in long term. Is there Surgery option to put the ribs back in place so as to fix this issue once for and all ? Can CT Scan and MRI find out the Compression and deformed position of the right lower rib?

I am seriously had enough of it, since this rib pain and tension causes me Anxiety and even depressed feelings. I find it difficult to do physical exercises like jogging, Gym due to this and stress makes it worse. Relaxation exercises only helps partially for very brief duration like 30 mins or so.

2. Urinary incontinence
Since a year, i have developed urinary incontinence .I don’t know exact reason for it. It could be the Lexapro drug, but i am taking Lexapro since 7 years. For incontinence i was prescribed Solifenacin 10mg, and its effective upto 70%. I cannot quit lexapro because it is the only Antidepressant which helped me significantly with anxiety and depression. I have relapsed into depression in past due to lexapro withdrawal.

I will really appreciate your advice and options(including surgery if possible) so i can discuss them with a Specialist doctor at my place.
