Please say more: These symptoms are common to so many conditions. It's not possible to know what's going on without much more descriptive detail. Please tell us more and we'll all try to help.

Best plan: Try to rinse raw rice in strainer several times till water runs nearly clear. That rids the surface of starch and most of the possible bad things. Also (sadly) brown (healthier) rice may have greater arsenic risk. Also, cook it as you know to be the right way. I don't think over/under increases the arsenic - rinsing does help.

Yes: Is there a difference between $600 and $800? Too much can cause liver damage, so don't mess around. Talk w/ the druggist - or a few if they are nt expert - or your trusted Dr if you have one. But don't mess w/ you liver - it's a vital organ. If the pain is chronic, discuss a referral for CBT to learn mgmt skills.

Talk w/ your Dr: Tell the Dr who's helping you with this. That's the best resource. It might not even be related, but an exam will help id what's going on. If you are otherwise still better, that's great!

Needs to be seen: The info you provide is not enough but if you go to an urgent care clinic, an ER or your Dr they'll have a good chance of evaluating it. Best!

See a Dr for eval!: Depending on so many things, this could be a set of reactions to things going very wrong that you can learn to change (in serious psychotherapy w/ hard work) or a situation that needs that plus medication, even a hospital stay. Have an eval ASAP by a really skilled pro. The difference matters! Don't wait - it's easier to resolve ASAP. There is help - find it. Best.

A Dr who believes!: I believe it can be done in mild to moderate cases, but I know that it's not easy. You need to find a Psychotherapist who has had success with this and you need to really work well together. You'll be learning several types of skills and practice w/ tolerance for errors is needed. Planning around your pattern. Good support. Firm self-discipline. No foolishness. Good luck!

Best to talk w/ Dr: Once you've really stopped, it ought not be a problem - but discuss this w/ the Dr who prescribed the Zoloft. They need to know about all other Rx or supplements you take. It will probably be safe - but get into the habit of discussing this topic w/ your providers.

Sounds unpleasant!: That's quite a list! It also could be that some symptoms are totally separate from others. If this lasts over a few days, see a Dr to have a good exam. That will begin to get you on the best track.

Possibly: So, what will you do if it is? I'd like to urge CBT therapy as a first step. They can refer for Rx if really needed, but only start that type of drug if you do. They can be a problem in themselves. They can help but only if needed and for a short use. It was good to get a clean bill of heart health!
