Conditions with symptom: 'memory loss'
I am 42 and have a lot of missing and loose teeth, including posts coming away from the roots. My earliest memory of the dentist was him asking "How often do you brush your teeth?" and my honest reply was "When my mam buys toothpaste." My other memory was when the drill bit came off and the lamp went off at the same time. I have a real fear of dentist and cannot eat for 48 hours before an appointment due to loose stool and nervousness and even 20mg diazepam still has me trying to bite the dentists arm (another memory). Are there any options to improve my oral health, the only option I have been given was a full set of dentures :( I work in Forensic Mental Health and my mouth looks and smells like my patients who have injected drugs for many years.
Sounds like you have a lot of issues going on in relation to dentistry. I am a dentist and believe it or not most of us are very sympathetic and understanding when it comes to people being anxious about treatment, for whatever reason. Try to find a dentist who you like and trust - we are all individual and have different approaches, so just find someone you think you'll get on with. If you really find treatment difficult there are options such as sedation, either by gas or a drip in the back of your hand, which works really well for some people. On the other hand, a sympathetic, understanding approach from your dentist can make a huge difference. With regard to your oral health, sometimes it's not possible to save all of your teeth and the best option is to take them out. Obviously I can't give you a detailed opinion on the options available as I haven't examined you but do try to find a dentist you like and talk to them about your concerns and what makes you anxious about treatment.
Hi I have had weight loss surgery and lost 9 stone 9lb's, however since losing the weight, I now have excess skin on my stomach and due to weight loss on my breasts they are very saggy and to add insult to injury have inverted nipples which seem to have got worse since the weight loss, I am unsure whether or not to apply to my GP as I don't know if the NHS would allow this.

hey i suffer from ulcerative colitis and i had all them symptoms when i first got diagnosed but it did take a while for the doctors to pick it up, could be something else but on a similar line but you seriously need to go back to doctors and explain and demand something more to be done as its not nice feeling like that!! ..
Is masterbating bad for you because i have heard that it can cause weakness of memory and bladder as well as lower back problems. Is this true as i kind of do it a lot but would like to stop if it is bad for me Thanks
I masturbate a lot, usually 2-3 times a day. I've had lower back pain for a while now. My semen sometimes has a yellow tint as well, and i don't seem to produce much, although this could be down to me doing it alot. Im 16 as well, and i hit puberty fairly late, if that means anything.
No and no. There is no longer any doubt among doctors and therapists that the supposed negative effects of masturbation are false. It is a perfectly normal and healthy form of sexual expression. Ninety-five percent of men begin to masturbate at puberty, and many continue to do so throughout life without negative consequences. Masturbation only becomes a problem if it becomes a substitute for other forms of sexual activity. It is important however to masturbate in a way that will help you learn how to control ejaculation so that when you do have a partner premature ejaculation will not be an issue.

I am a 19 year old male my symptoms for nearly the past year is that i have hair loss and hair thinning but it is accompanied by a daily itch on my scalp especially on the top of my scalp and sometime it intensifies so much causes me to feel very depressed and whenever i try to relive the itch it pains. Also when my scalp is itching my scalp appears red ton the whole top of my scalp. i have been to my doctor, a dermotologist and a qualified tricologist at the institute of tricology and they all say different things to me. my dermotologist say's i have folliculitus and androgennic Alopecia but the ticologist say's that i do NOT have male pattern baldness as i am also have thinning and hair loss on the sides of my scalp and on the back but says that i have telegon effluviam. This is all well an said but they don't seem to deal with the scalp pain and tenderness that i am going through. On another note whenever there an itch there is hair loss as well, i also seem to be losing hair from my eye brows and eye lashes and my eyes seem to always itch and sting whenever i try touch them after i have touched my hair. I have also been told that my hair seems to look very crimpled as well whereby it looks unhealthy and that some hair are easily broken if thats any help. on another note when looking at my hair strands as one does when being worried about hair loss my hair is noticibly thinner near the root tip then the top og the hair strand is this normal?
