I can't look down what could be wrong with my neck?

I can't look down what could be wrong with my neck?

Neck arthritis: There are several joints and intervertebral discs in the neck. These can wear out over time leading to pain. Degeneration of the joints or discs can cause neck pain, headaches, and/or shoulder pain. This can also lead to muscle spasm which limits range of motion in the neck. See your physician if these symptoms don't improve in 1-2 weeks or sooner if you also have headaches and/or fever. ...Read more

Sometimes a man can get an erection at the wrong time and/or place. What can he do to calm it down asap?

Focus: Trying to consciously focus on what one is doing rather than thinking about it can help. I've heard in some cultures men tie a string around the genitalia & thread it into their pockets. When unwanted arises, the string is pulled & its suppose to get rid of it! Do not recommend this, but this illustration helps place this perpetual problem into perspective. Cooling & tensing the muscles can help. ...Read more

The trend: Is good. Be sure that it goes to normal and discus the ramifications of even a transient abnormal liver test with your doctor.

Shrinking tongue: I have never heard of a shrinking tongue. I would guess the other parts of your head have gotten bigger as you grew thereby giving you a shorter tongue by comparison.

No: One cannot die from aspiration of some water, one will cough and sputter and gag, but unless the water has lots of chlorine or other noxious chemical, death is not really possible. Water boarding which is repeated head dunking could cause enough aspiration of water without any recovery time to qualify as the equivalent of drowning, but usual amount causing choking, no death, no drowning. ...Read more

For the last 2 years it's felt lie nothing is real and my mind shuts down. Is there something wrong with me?

Yes. This not normal: It sounds as if you are likely suffering from depersonalization disorder. Please see your family doctor to make sure that there is nothing physically wrong with you, then see a psychiatrist to formalize the diagnosis and then a psychotherapist to help you with treatment of this condition.

I have been having spasm in my lower to mid left stomache/side, it happens if I bend down or just at random times. What's wrong?

Contractions: If bending produces the discomfort, it may be contractions of the abdominal muscles causing these spasms. If you note spasms elsewhere in your muscles, magnesium or calcium deficiencies could be the cause. Inflammation of the descending colon or left sided pelvic/ovarian problems are other possibilities. Have your physician examine you if symptoms persist and he/she will order the appropriate tests ...Read more
