3756 Water bottles
The stainless steel water bottle that I use for the gym, running, walking, etc. has begun to accumulate calcium deposits. I'm aware I can clean them off, but it's still a bit of a nuisance for something I use regularly.

Plastic bottles I've used have tended to bleed the taste of plastic into the water, especially on hot days.

Is there a type of water bottle that doesn't have these problems? I've been recommended the following: Camelbak Podium, Clean Canteen (sp?), and the Bobble Bottle.

I know there are a few cyclists and runners on .gs, so I imagine you've all given this some thought a few times as well.

I use Camelbak Podiums on my bike. They're great. They're plastic, but the insides of them are coated in some special bollocks that's supposed to stop the bad taste. As far as I can tell, it works. They're only about eight quid, so it's worth you trying.

I've also heard that any rigid plastic bottle won't impart any flavour into the water, but I'm personally not a fan of non-squeezable bottles.

I have two Thermos bottles from this page; bought them in a multipack so I can rotate between the two and make sure one is always clean. They feel quite sturdy, and as long as I wash them regularly (I don't even have a dishwasher, but they are dishwasher-proof plastic) I don't get any nasty taste or whiff off them. They've been dropped whilst full a few times and held up so far in the ~3 months I've had them.

I'm unsure if anyone gives a shite, but I might as well follow up as OP.

I went for the Consol Grip and Go in the end, and at the risk of sounding like a covert marketer it is properly good quality (which is a relief, as they are fairly expensive at £9 - £13). The glass is thick, and the clear cap has a rubber plug/seal to keep things air tight. The top twists off easily and the neck is just the right width for me to glug.

The 1L is definitely too large to cycle or run with, but for hiking, camping, or if you're one of those big bastards that spends three or four hours lifting weights, then it's perfect. I've ordered a 500ml bottle as well and will probably use this for running and gymming.

Thank you for the suggestions, I will keep them on hand in case I smash the ones I bought like a pillock am in need of something in the future.

I take a multi-vitamin + minerals tablet daily.
-I've been thinking of stopping this for the same general reasoning as >>3749, but I'd want to replace it with various individual supplements but I can't be arsed with the extra effort and cost. (Mainly B vitamins, iron, vitamin C are the main things I want that I get from the multi.)
Also, there is evidence that folic acid supplements are harmful, particularly in people with certain genes, as the body has a limited capacity to convert synthetic folic acid to a form which is useful to the body. (But unfortunately the better forms of folate supplement are bloody expensive).

My other main supplements I take daily are Magnesium citrate (about 100mg, I know I can tolerate a bigger dose but it's bloody expensive, so I've been thinking about buying a kilogram tub of food grade magnesium sulphate to use instead.)
And I take a tablet with 125ug and 100ug of vitamin K2. (Vitamin D is considered harmful by some experts when taken without K2. Rates of osteoporosis and arteriosclerosis increase in people who take vitamin D alone.)

Regarding Magnesium giving you the shits, vitamin D will tend to help cancel it out. In fact, I suffer with IBS, when I started taking a high dose of vitamin D, my frequent diarrhoea stopped practically overnight.

Other supplements I sometimes take but aren't that important to me are vitamin C, zinc, sometimes cod liver oil. I'm fairly sure I'm getting enough of these from food.

They're not strictly considered supplements, but I also take MSM daily (sulphur) unless I've ate a lot of onion that day. Sulphur is underrated as an essential mineral, because scientists have generally believed you get enough to live from amino acids which are essential in and of themselves. But some people are beginning to believe there are a lot of health benefits from getting a large amount of sulphur in other forms.) I also take L-arginine which is meant to be good for circulation, and L-carnitine because some people think it helps metabolise fat (it might make no difference but it's cheap enough that it doesn't hurt.)

It's supposed to be nutritionally dense and contains all the amino acids you need to synthesise protein.

It's true for some things, but as for magnesium, intensive farming methods tend to mean it's hard to get from solid foods, drinking water can sometime give you enough magnesium, but most UK tap-water has too little.

And as for vitamin D, the combination of living in Britain and working in a windowless office makes supplements pretty important. Unless your diet includes liver and pate every single day.

I've suffered from both chronic anxiety and chronic pain for years and have recently managed to get a stable care plan in place as well as a combination of meds that work for me most of the time.

Dihydrocodiene for the immediate pain, Diazepam for the spasms caused by the pain and also for the worst symptoms of the anxiety and amitriptyline for the Neuralgia and also to help me sleep at night.

My anxiety has flared up quite bad recently though and they can't up my dosage of diazepam to get a handle on it as apparently they aren't allowed to and only specific conditions can receive stronger than 2mg doses and anxiety isn't one of them (With the exception of a fear of flying, they'll give you 5mg. I assume you have to be epileptic to get 10mg.), so I was given an SSRI called Sertraline by the doctor to help manage it instead. I started the course today and within 20 mins I was somewhat regretting it. I felt a wave of what can only be described as numbness wash over me. I no longer feel anxious, but I feel thick like I can't think. My lids are heavy, to be honest I feel like I'm heavily sedated, and I have a weird sharp stabbing pain behind my right eye. I have been on opiates and benzos for so many years that I'm intimately familiar with their side effects and the reason I mentioned them before was so I could give you a picture of what I'm on and rule them out, because I don't think it is them and also, now that I think on it, I haven't even taken any today so it can't be them.

Do any of you lads have any experience with drugs of this nature, or even just this one in particular? Is this just par for the course with SSRIs or should I consult the doctor and stop taking them? Panic attacks are shit and everything and I have crippling agoraphobia, but I don't think making me feel like this instead was what the doctor had in mind when he said he wanted to get my anxiety under control.

Caveat: I'm not a doctor, just a mentally ill nerd. Don't take anything I say as gospel truth.

Sertraline is the default SSRI because there is a good evidence base across a wide range of conditions, the risk of serious side effects is relatively low, it is well tolerated by most patients and it costs pennies.

There is a very long list of alternatives that you might get on better with. If you go back to your doctor and say that you're not doing well on sertraline, they should offer an alternative drug. You might also want to consider the timing of your dose - sertraline should be just as effective if taken at night, but the side effects may be much less of a problem.

In your case, interaction between your medications is likely to increase the risk of some side effects and make prescribing more difficult. I'd be slightly concerned about the interaction between amitryptiline and sertraline, as there is a risk of serotonin syndrome. If at you feel extremely hot and agitated, you should stop taking both drugs and seek immediate medical attention.

It might make sense to try switching the amitryptiline for an SNRI or an anticonvulsant. Several drugs are effective for the treatment of both neuropathic pain and anxiety, so you may be able to kill two birds with one stone. This would reduce the risk of side effects from drug interactions, but your neuralgia symptoms might briefly increase while you're switching drugs. Duloxetine or pregabalin would be plausible options. If you think this might be worth trying, discuss it with your doctor.

We don't really understand how or why antidepressant drugs work, so there's a lot of trial-and-error involved in prescribing. Most antidepressants can cause either drowsiness or insomnia depending on the patient, which is just weird. There's also an element of matching the right side effect profile to the right patient. Some side effects can be beneficial to some patients.

If want to swot up, you can read the NICE guidelines for Generalised Anxiety Disorder at the link below. These guidelines are the standard treatment approach that doctors are expected to follow. The guidance for drug treatment starts at paragraph 1.2.22.

Yep that's an opiate painkiller alright, the dihydrocodiene hard at work. It really does feel quite different to a benzo, doesn't it? You'll eventually build tolerance to the 'fun' (I personally never liked opiates) side effects but it might take you a while.

On a side note 2mg of diazepam is a pitiful dose for panic attacks, 5mg being bare minimum and while I'm at it diazepam is practically useless for epilepsy - 2mg of clonazepam will do the trick far better than even 20 or 30 mg of diazepam for treating seizures. I know doctors are trying to reduce benzodiazepine abuse by pushing SSRIs in their place but treating acute panic attacks with something which, at best, might treat day to day background anxiety is a road to nowhere.

Finally you might want to put threads like this in /A/ in the future as people have been known to throw shit-fits for any kind of 'drug' talk on other boards.

Thanks for this info, lad. Really good post, I appreciate it. I'll give it another try tomorrow night and if I'm OK in the morning I'll perhaps reconsider. You've given me some homework to do as well, so thanks.

Apologies lad as I may have misunderstood your post. When you said "I started the course today" I assumed that you'd only started taking the dihydrocodiene today too, not just the sertraline; I therefore put two and two together and apparently came up with five. I have no real personal experience with sertraline but I hope you get whatever the problem is sorted out.

Any of you lads use preworkout? Last night I necked cold nescafe before my session and it certainly made a difference. Unfortunately it also kept me up until 2am.

As I usually work out in the morning, though, I'm thinking of making my own preworkout sludge, probably some combination of juice and caffeine.

I occasionally read T-Nation. I know this isn't always the most reliable source of information, but it's easy reading and occasionally there's an inspiring idea in the writing. An article over there suggested that a pre-workout source of protein and carbs is actually far more effective for building muscle and getting stronger than anything consumed post-workout.

Are there any studies behind this from a better source?

Cheers lad. Don't be offended but I did skim down to the 'Practical applications' heading because I'm a lazy bastard, but it is extremely useful to have nonetheless. It would seem to suggest 20-45g of protein, preferably pre and post-workout, is a sensible measure. Carbs post-workout don't seem to be of much use by these findings.

Yep, I'd personally go for ~50g protein both pre and post workout with 50g carbs in the preworkout drink. If you can handle being looked at like a bit of spacco (depending on your gym) then you can have half your preworkout drink before you train and sip the other half during training between sets. Then once you get home mix up another serving of protein and try to eat a proper meal an hour or two after that.

3586 The NHS fucked me up
This is mostly a rant about how inefficient the NHS is and how a lack of communication between departments has made my situation much worse, and could indeed have killed me.

Some backstory: I am a 20 year old male, whose parents both happen to be doctors. For about a year, I've had a form of arthritis that means I take methotrexate (an immunosuppressive drug also used in higher doses for chemotherapy) each week.

Fast forward to the start of University this year. I'm bed bound with fevers, vomiting, headaches... Some kind of virus, I thought, I'll take a few paracetamol and wait for it to pass. This continued for a week and a half, when my mum recommended I go for a blood test to check it isn't something more sinister, which I then do. Because of my medication the GP realises it's fairly important I get the results quickly, so he tells me to call on Thursday (the day after next) when they'll be ready.

So I call on Thursday, twice, and both times I'm told there are no results and to call again tomorrow. Friday, the same thing happens. I explained that it was urgent because of my medication, but was told "there's nothing I can do, call back on Monday". I relay this to my mum, who rings them up, telling them she's a doctor and they need to call the pathology lab and obtain my results, which will almost certainly have been ready since yesterday, which they then do.

The results were quite shocking - I was severely neutropenic (very weak immune system, susceptible to infection) and as such, needed to leave the house I was in immediately, since five of my 9 housemates were sick with various forms of freshers' flu. Had I waited until Monday I would have been at risk of developing potentially fatal infections.

I went home to my parents, who took me to the hospital they both work at. I was admitted onto the wards, and was given regular IV antibiotics and paracetamol, with daily blood tests. After two days, a nurse told me my immune system was completely destroyed and I needed to go into isolation immediately. I was then ignored for 6 hours, sitting in a ward full of sick people, coughing, sneezing and in one case shitting himself repeatedly, until I asked what was taking so long and they finally moved me into a private room.

For a further 2 days I had continued regular paracetamol and antibiotics. At one point, a nurse tried to give me my weekly methotrexate - had I taken it, it would have seriously harmed my already damaged immune system and liver. For some reason, no-one had marked on my charts that for the time being I absolutely cannot take it. Luckily I was sound of mind and told her where to stick it, but any confused or senile patient would probably have let them do it. Eventually my immune system recovered somewhat, so they let me go home. I was still neutropenic, but not as severely as before.

Out of curiosity my parents checked all the blood tests taken during my hospitalisation the next day and found some surprising/worrying results.

3564 Alcohol intolerance. Afraid I have Non-hodgkin Lymphoma.
I am a 23 year old male.

For the past month or so I have noticed that after a lot of drinks, I begin to develop a sore throat on one side. I can drink casually with no pain. I.e, drinking a beer or so doesn't give any immediate or after pain.

It only hurts when I swallow (any liquid or solid), and when I yawn. It is on the middle right side of my neck. It feels like a sore lump when I swallow. I can not feel any actual lumps or swellings. Although the area is slightly tender to touch. It alleviates in a few days or so, until I drink heavily again, and wake up with a sore throat.

The doctor examined my lymph nodes 2 weeks ago, and said they were fine, although at the time I did not have said sore throat. I also had a blood test (looking for thyroid issues that could explain my anxiety) and they came back fine.

I am terrified I have NHL as my throat is very very sore when I swallow, and I have read that alcohol intolerance in the area of lymph swelling is a symptoms of NHL.

My mum has a form of GERD that doesn't feel like heartburn at all but just manifests itself as a burning throat. I'm pretty sure I have the same thing but can't be bothered going for the swallowing barium while being X-rayed test or whatever she had. I remember doctors looking in my throat once or twice when I was a teen and saying it definitely looked inflamed (I was just there with glandular fever or something but that inflamed throat feeling's incredibly familiar.)

I'm just wondering if you have alcohol-induced throat GERD that's only getting inflamed and irritated on one side for some reason.

3560 Ears.
It wouldn't be frivolous to go to my doctor about my ears would it? Earlier I was out on my bike and the most tremendous pain forced me to stop dead. It was as though my left ear drum was being pierced right though. Fortunately I wasn't anywhere near traffic when this happened, because the pain was such that I really couldn't do anything while it was there.

I tried poking around a little myself but all I did was hurt myself again, and drag out a very small amount of deep red wax.

For the past week or so I have been worrying a great deal about a hard ridge type protrusion on the top of the skull. (It is longer than it is wide). It has a sort of bony circle at the base (near the back of my head). It is painless to touch and feels very very firm. I am a 23 year old male and I can't say I've ever noticed it before. I have had severe anxiety since noticing it and a series of panic attacks, as well as pretty bad migraines and nausea. I have seen 3 doctors and they have all said it was something like a sagittal suture, and not to worry about it. But I am terrified it is skull cancer, especially with my headaches and the fact I didn't notice it before. I'm really looking for some re-assurance here as like I said, this is driving me into a sort of depression.

Okay so your heart transplant comes to 150,995, now, let me talk to you about bandage protection, stitch insurance, extended organ warranty and optional final balloon payments.
Your heart is a depreciating assets and really there is no point in owning, with our finance package you just pay 80000 in monthly installments over 3 years and then you either bring your heart in and swap it for a new one, you die and give it back or you pay 90000 optional payment to keep the heart.

3443 Spunk
I don't want to alarm anyone but something has happened to my spunk. It's consistency has changed, it's become too sticky and sludgy. It tends to dribble out rather than shoot out like it use to. I haven't changed my diet, but I recently turned 30 is this something that comes with age?

What does Doctor Britfa.gs think?

Imbibe more fluids and drink less alcohol.

I prescribe zinc supplements once every morning, make another appointment to come back in a fortnight to let me know how you are getting along.

Anyone here substituted eating for Soylent? Really curious to try it.

>Soylent is a powdered meal replacement product, advertised as a "staple meal". Its creators state that Soylent meets all nutritional requirements for an average adult.
>Rosa Labs states that the current formulation is based on recommendations of the Institute of Medicine and Soylent includes all of the elements of a healthy diet, without excess amounts of sugars, saturated fats, or cholesterol.

Yes folate loosely refers to an entire group of chemicals, that's the problem. If the acid disassociates in water, you get the "ate" and the H+ ion. For the "ate" to be useful though you have to get rid of the H+ entirely and attach the "ate" to something else.

I don't understand this in any deep level of detail myself, but:
Folic acid is converted in the liver to tetrahydrofolate, this is then further converted into 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate.

>>3491>>3496
It's not particularly bad. The problem is most rice is high in cadmium, and rice is the base staple in soylent. How much of a problem it is depends on who you listen to, if you eat rice daily you might already be getting more cadmium in your diet than soylent has anyway.

No, folate refers to the folate group, which can be found in an entire group of chemicals. Also, if it properly dissociates then you *do* get the folate group and the (two, in the case of folic acid) H+ separately, surely? Hence dissociate. Having a quick look at the structure of tetrahydrofolate, it doesn't even have a folate group, per se, in that the chemical changes are on the folate group itself rather than just deprotonating it and replacing the H+s with something else.

A quick Wikipediaing has revealed to me that the term "folic acid" can refer to a whole hose of chemicals that are derivatives of the proper folic acid, not the term "folate".

Anyway, semantics.

The levels of cadmium et al are safe and within FDA approved limits. Supposedly if your product contains cadmium you must put an extra warning label on your product. They have the extra warning on the site but not the product it self. That's what the law suit is about.

Reading back over this thread, I'm very pleased I came across this post. I know it's a copout and not the intended purpose of the product, but it looks like it may be an excellent supplement. I do wonder if the bodybuilders will catch on and throw it in with their whey and bulking powders.

I'd certainly stick it in with my morning porridge, anyway.

I've been looking at these sorts of powders as a way to replace the meals I'd end up missing otherwise - I very rarely eat breakfast or lunch, and end up wolfing a 1500 calorie dinner at 10pm. It would be much smarter for me to drink two meals and have a regular dinner.

Sage for useless post

Lads.

I've just got my first dental filling. There are several more to come (daft I sitting on my arse doing nothing) but I do already have a mild paranoia of them falling out. As well as the possible further decay to the point that I'll need canal treatments, crowns, bridges, whatever other scary things.

How good are modern fillings? How may I preserve what I have and live my life with my teeth?

I've already given up on sweets for the most time. I brush my fangs twice a day. Is there anything else to add?

Not sure if this should go here or to /emo/. Gosh, I envy sharks.

Morning, lads.

How do I increase my staying power during sex? It seems to be getting worse and I'm reaching the vinegar strokes sooner than I'd like to. At least when I was a teenlad and it was a quickie I'd be ready to go again ~10 minutes later and it'd last much longer, but now it's at least an hour before I'd be ready to go again. I seem to last longest in the morning, before I've had a piss.

I've just bought a giant hamper of Ametop numbing cream for reasons non-sexual, but the search online to find it was littered with similar lidocaine gels to be used for fellas with issues with premature ejaculation. Have you tried getting a little bag of coke and watering it down with Vaseline and spreading it thinly on your johnson?

Wearing a condom actually reduces this issue... Also, a tactical wank before the main show?

I found the right amount of alcohol can give you a proper hardon, but you won't spaff so quickly.

Go on tiger get out there.
