A 53-year-old male asked:

What could cause extreme pain at the base of the skull on the right side?

Muscle or headache.: Neck strains - from poor posture, whiplash or vigorous exercise can cause muscle strains that you feel at the base of the skull (that's where some neck muscles attach). Certain types of headaches can do this as well. I'd try some Ibuprofen or alleve and see if it improves. If you start having blurry or double vision, nausea, or fevers, i'd see your doctor right away! cheers!

Usually not a proble: Small pieces of glass are not likely to cause a problem. No need to go the the emergency department to have stomach pumped. Likely these pieces will pass through your intestinal tract without causing damage. Unlikely signs of something more serious (go to er): 1. Severe abdominal pain 2. Vomiting up blood or coffee ground material. 3. Passing blood or black colored bowel movements.

WOW !: I am concerned but I am reminded of the guy at the side-show who eats light bulbs. Depending on the size and shape of the glass shards you may be O.K.If larger than pencil eraser i'd seek medical attention.

See Orthopedic MD: Most scaphoid casts are on for only two weeks and you should be pain free. You need an orthopedic surgeon consultation and probably a mri.

Anal fissure: Most likely is that you have a sentinel tag on the outside of a rectal fissure not an infection. Many different treatments for this but will have to have the diagnosis made. Many office treatments and if they do not work only then is surgery recommended.
