Or you can ask your doctor to try a different pain medication. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Be a role model: On a friday night, 22-year old female with hives, only medical problems listed in profile "allergic reactions" & only medication listed Benadryl (diphenhydramine) (not percocet!), suggest treating your hives as follows: stay home, read, watch a movie, drink chamomile tea & do not take percocet.

Not possible: Hemorrhoid tissue is a normal part of our anatomy found at the very end of the rectum/anus. It would be impossible for them to be related to abdominal pain. Now constipation can cause abdominal discomfort and straining can cause the hemorrhoids to flare up. Most important thing to prevent constipation and therefore hemorrhoid flare ups is adequate fluid and fiber in your diet. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

See a doc: You need a formal evaluation, an urethral discharge in a 20 year old male definitely warrants STD check up. A lot of young adults are asymptomatic; risks are for gonorrhoea and chlamydia.
