    Knee Damage

    The knee is an extremely complicated joint, with several structures that can be injured, including the collateral ligaments, the cruciate ligaments and the meniscus Read more →

    I had surgery in my ear, to an ear infection! After that the pain went away, and so did the popping, and crackling too! several years later I was cleaning my ear,and it had started to crackle, and popping again not to long after that! I went to see my ENT! He had said it does not look infected! It I had seen him at least 6 times within 3 months! He told me that it was TMJ He had told me he will not see me again once I see a Oral Surgeon, and I had seen someone who knows about TMJ!I had him try to treat me. It did not do anything I think it had made it worse for me! isn't there any remedies out there? I am so embarrassed what can I do? See another ENT and have them telling me the same thing or see my G.P. and be disapointed again?

    See another ENT. My ENT also told me the same thing TMJ was causing the pain. I seen a TMJ doctor he did a Jaw Washout on me and NO relief at all.. There's nothing wrong a second opinion

    for 4/5 years my jaw has been popping locking dislocating and done nothing about it till it started to cause pain cant open my mouth wide enough to eat a sandwich so have to squash it down ive been doctors they told me I need dentist referral to go hospital, in the next week or so I had to go AnE because of the pain and they diagnosed me with TMJ and only way to get it sorted is to get a dentist referral to hospital treatment, they're 2 treatments, one is a mouth guard to try for 6 months if doesn't work it'll be an operation which could lead to 50/50 chance of half your face being paralysed so I don't know what will happen...

    im 14 and under my foreskin i have like vaint popping out and when i masturbate they go away and a big bubble goes there instead does anyone know what thats about ?

    Hi guys, I'm not a doctor but have suffered from fear of the same kind of white bumps that when popped white stuff came out from. It started around 14 and I had never had sex at that time. It turned out that it was sweat pockets - small white bumps formed on the skin from heat. One suggestion I have is to expect your body to change as you get older - our skin condition is pretty hereditary. Girls will not ask because they don't know about male genitilia but if they do, just be honest - its nitching to be ashamed of. Especially instant judgment by others!! Be positive ok?

    the blood was probably just due to your cherry popping, so there is nothing to worry about...maybe try using some lubes if you feel uncomfortable during sex?

    there alot of ways to help with that problem but popping them isnt a good idea

    My labia is preset long like if I try to shake my but I can feel it and I have a bf but I don't know what he'd think I'm scared I shave down there but it looks so big popping out I don't know why...

    First, never pop anything on your skin. It can make the situation much worse. Second, go to a urologist. Talk to your parents and explain the need. Don't be embarassed, just do it.

    I have lumps on my tounge feels like spots because it got some White in it and he hurts when it touches anything and I tried popping it it just went red and sor anything I can do to help it? Had it For a week now

    NO! Don't pop or squeeze just leave them alone until you can get it removed by a doctor. Popping carries a huge chance of vag infection and then it just grows back bigger as yours did
