Best Way To Get Furosemide - Buy Online! Not a doctor, massage therapist. I had a client convinced an anti-inflammatory diet would cure his ankylosing spondylitis and he’d never have to take biologics (I’m going to assume Humira, but again, not my wheelhouse). He was very afraid of biologics.

    I tend to point out Steve Jobs to people like this, guy got bad info and delayed real medical treatment because of it. He had an unlimited pool of money to seek treatment but went down the healing herbs/alternative medicine route rather than seeking actual medical treatment and died from a relatively mild form of cancer he likely would have survived had he listened to real doctors.

    I really tried to focus his thoughts on talking to his rheumatologist and GP about his fears and teaching him how to ask them for more information. Yeah, it’s a scary diagnosis, but chucking all medication out the window is not the way to deal. Thankfully, he did decide to stick with his doctors’ recommendations and decided to take up a referral to a psychologist. I think I also convinced him to take his Facebook support group with a bit more of a grain of salt.

    When discussing getting a COVID vax my patient proceeded to tell me that a pharmacist told her because she had an ‘adverse reaction’ to miralax she couldn’t get the vaccine because there is a component shared between the two. In order for her to get it she would need to be hospitalized and monitored for anaphylaxis.

    Oh god, I have one here. I have had so far two patients in my career that had clinical HITT but either the AB test was negative or the Ab was negative but serotonin assay positive. I told both patient I do not care what ANYBODY says - they have an allergy to heparin because in both cases I spent HOURS removing clots that kept reappearing and only after I switched to argatroban was I able to have some success. All the other hypercoagulable work up was negative. The price is just too high.

    My mom has a grab bag of autoimmune conditions. She's immunosuppressed and gets sick a lot. She's allergic to a lot of things but the most difficult to figure out was steroids. She has anaphylaxis with steroids. It took years and multiple doctors including specialists to finally pin it down. I'm sure it's probably some ingredient in the medication and not the active ingredient itself but it happens every time. Her PCP retired recently and the new one doesn't believe her. She had bronchitis a little while ago and he prescribed a nebulizer and oral steroids and wouldn't listen when she said she couldn't take them.

    Patient told me she has an anaphylactic reaction to normal saline. I said, "That's impossible. You're made of normal saline." She claimed it was a "bonding agent" for the sodium and chloride. I told her, "Those are electrons. You're also made of electrons."

    Interesting, I did not know this. Just read up on it and looks like some studies suggest anaphylactic reactions to the COVID vaccines could be tied to pre-existing anti-PEG immunoglobulins but this doesn’t seem to hold up across other studies. There does seem to be higher prevelance of anti-PEG in women vs. men but the difference isn’t great enough to explain for the higher female/male ratio of severe reactions to the COVID vax that use PEGylated solid lipid nano particles.

    Had a cardiac surgery patient sent home after a sternotomy. The nurse giving the discharge instructions decided to add in her own personal advice to the patient to apply this specific brand of “wound healing” cream to the incision every day to help it heal. A fresh sternotomy incision. That should be kept dry and clean. Sure enough the patient re-presented to the ED a week or so later with a massive substernal abscess that needed to be taken back to the OR for evacuation.

    Patient was told she was getting an infusion of shark white blood cells in Mexico to cure her cancer. From what I could gather she had an operable tumor on initial presentation but didn't want surgery, went to some crackpot spa-clinic in Tijuana that told her they were giving her "shark white blood cells because sharks naturally cute cancer". She was flying from Pittsburgh to TJ once a month for whatever junk they were giving her (clearly not shark white blood cells). Last time she was so sick they told her to go back to the hospital in the US. I saw her once on urology service for a consult because her tumor was pushing on one of her ureters. Three weeks later I was on an ICU rotation and saw her again. We recommended hospice so she tried to AMA back to Mexico, but the Mexican medical transport wouldn't take her she was so sick. Pretty sure she died in the ER awaiting a bed in the hospital again. Idk how the fuck people get away with selling this crackpot bullshit. It's both the dumbest thing I've ever heard and one of the most infuriating.

    One I hear at least once a month is “my doctor told me that I couldn’t get pregnant.” This is in the abortion clinic. I highly doubt their doc said that though because fertility is such a finicky thing. I’ve always assumed someone has said that they might have a tough time getting pregnant. Or maybe they are just trying to justify their accidental pregnancy with me when I really couldn’t care less. Shit happens.

    I have heard a similar story where the doctor says something along the lines of “if you take this medication you can not get pregnant, because the medication will harm the fetus” and the patient thinks oh great its not possible to get pregnant on this medication. Miscommunication combined with low health literacy.

    A patient with a bunch of nonspecific symptoms but a long, documented hx of untreated psychiatric illness went to the county public health department where the midlevel suspected heavy metal toxicity. The heavy metal panel was negative but the zinc protoporphyrin was on the high end of normal as it is in iron deficiency (which the patient has). The midlevel decided this was evidence enough that a neighbor poisoned the patient and treated with weeks of EDTA and steroids. Now the patient carries this erroneous diagnosis around and won’t believe anyone that tells her otherwise.

    I work in an allergy/immunology clinic. I had a patient (clear as day allergic rhinitis/chronic sinusitis) insist that we do food testing on him. The doc I work for prefers that we not do the entire panel of food skin tests due to the likelihood of false positives, so I probed him about why he wanted to do so/what foods he’s reacted to in the past so I could correlate and choose which tests to do from there. His response? He’s never had any reactions “that he knows of”, but his neighbor, a functional medicine “doctor”, did a food allergy test for him in which the “doctor” held one food at a time in his closed fist, and the patient had to put his hand over the closed fist. If his hand moved down, that meant he was allergic to the food.

    I’ve had nurses tell my type 1 diabetic child (who is not overweight and has a low normal bmi) that if she loses weight and exercises she will be able to get off insulin - I’m like-“If she becomes underweight her pancreas will just kick in again!?! Do you even know the difference between type 1 and type 2? You should not be advising diabetics. You are going to kill someone.”
