BTC-Hospital Saves Me
That guy on the bitcoin forums literally saved me from crippling injury in a few years time. Had I not spoke to him, it may have been too late before I got it checked out. I always kept putting it off since I'm so busy and it didn't seem like a big deal.

jaw drops... The more services for bitcoin the better esp ones that help people..

Wow.  This thread is amazing.  Hopefully I won't need to use it, but I'll still take comfort knowing it exists.  Keep up the good work!

Please PM with an email address for future reference :-)

Sometimes patients can know more about a condition that doctors. It would be great if someone was able to amass a number of contact with whom they can refer to or put people in contact with to get info on a condition too. I think there has to come a point one day when it's not possible for a General Practitioner to keep up to date on everything.

Good stuff DrG Smiley  I just sent you a bitcoin.

I would love to see some very brief advice on how to search med. info in 2012, is PubMed king?  Are there any decent AI chatterbot attempts at diagnosis?  A few sites you recommend?  Thanks.

Thanks Davinci, was wondering who that random donation was Tongue

Been a bit swamped on my end taking care of 2 sick babies at home.  Will get back to the PMs when I get a chance.

Hey DrG and boognish!

Update: I went to see that specialist, and took him DrG's write-up.

The orthopaedic specialist said your write-up was very good and he agrees with your approach (cautious skepticism regarding surgery, treatment plan, 2 different injuries).

He did some physical tests and told me that the first injury from my wrestling days is probably a chipped piece of cartilage, or possibly a fracture. The chipped piece of cartilage is stopping my arm fully extending by 1-2cm compared with my right arm. I had an x-ray and go back in 2 weeks to see about that. He said that if it is a chipped piece of cartilage then it is probably not a good idea to operate (since it would have healed over during these 4 years), and the way forwards is with physical therapy. Surgery is a last resort.

When I banged my elbow 1 year ago, he says this is scholars elbow and that the tingling/aching I feel, is where the nerve is regenerating itself. And that nerve damage takes a *really really* long time to heal.
I think it is this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olecranon_bursitis (not sure)

Overall I'm really happy! Could've been worse! Feel free to chip in with your own diagnostics doctors. Just putting this out there so everyone can see you're the real deal and did such a good job. The specialist liked your write-up. I stopped twice while reading it, but he asked for the whole thing and said it was good.

Keep it up! This is the future and you are doing good by providing people with easy access medicine. Of course, an online doctor is not a replacement for a real specialist, but it is a good supplement that can only help make people more healthier if used in a correct ethical manner.

Hugs & kisses,

Genjix

Dear Doctor (Students),

I have a pain in my nose everytime I drink my coffee. It only happens right when I'm drinking it and it is extremely uncomfortable.

What can I do?

Sorry for the late reply, got a couple of sick babies really keeping me busy at home  Tongue

The chipped cartilage sounds about right from my minimal ortho knowledge.  Usually if it's a very acute injury (less than 1 month) they can try to remove the chip or stitch it back in the right place.  Obviously athletes have access to this more often and it's a common procedure for them.  Now it's an old injury so it's probably just scar tissue.  You can use rehab to regain some of the mobility back.

It's hard to say what is causing the deep ache in the arm.  If I could examine you it would be easier since one would just need to map out where the nerve is being impinged.  From what I heard so far it sounded like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ulnar_nerve_entrapmentUlnar Nerve entrapment.  The easiest way to confirm this would be to do nerve conduction studies but those are both expensive and painful (I had them done myself and it's not fun).

I'm sorry to tell you this, but you have a http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pl4plPGRG8o drinking problem.  Unfortunately the cure involves sniffing glue  Cry

I find google scholar to be much better than pubmed. If you have access to the journals, also get zotero.

It looks like your right upper lid is drooping slightly (so I would say yes for the time being).  Have you always had that or is it a recent condition?  If it's worsening recently you may want to have it checked out by a neurologist (or ophthalmologist if you had any eye trauma).  If it's worsening then you always have to worry about nerve compression from a tumor.  Autoimmune and inflammatory causes are usually rarer (esp in males).

This is the kind of condition where a good history and physical can usually give the answer without spending $2k on a head CT/MRI and chest xrays.
