    I'm currently waiting on the phone to NHS 24 for medical advice but it's a long wait. I was spray painting my kitchen cupboards for no longer than 10 minutes. I started to feel really dizzy so I stopped and left the room for a break. I was covering my face with a t shirt because I didn't have a mask on me (stupid, I know) After I left the room I kept smelling and tasting spray paint but I thought that was just due to being in the fumes. So I look in the mirror and the spray paint is IN MY NOSE??? Like surrounding my nose and inside was all white and I have NO idea how that happened. So I immediately cleaned my nose out but I've obviously inhaled some sort of fumes. Will I be ok? Please help I feel kind of light headed

  • Can a hot tub give me a cold?

    Can sitting in a hot tub, outside while it’s 40 degrees, for an hour or hour and a half or so at a time, give me a cold or cold-like symptoms? Like my chest hurting when I breathe in, or nasal congestion?

  • Am I sick with something?

    This has been going on for the past few months, and I don't think it's good. I have been having mucus-like stuff in my throat for a while, and it hasn't been getting better.

    This has been going on for the past few months, and I don't think it's good. I have been having mucus-like stuff in my throat for a while, and it hasn't been getting better. I get out of breath so quickly, even just by laughing. A couple of days ago that happened actually to the point where I felt like I was going to pass out. I didn't tell anyone and just tried to brush off the dizziness. I have a slight fear of doctors so I haven't told anyone what has been going on. Could I just have asthma or something?

    I was hospitalized in August for double pneumonia and sepsis, I stayed for 3 days and was discharged. The doc said the pneumonia was gone but I have a lot of scarring on my lungs. After I was finished with all of my medicine I felt back to normal, but I have been having some coughing and shortness of breath off and on (not bad) I had all of my labs done and X-rays which showed no infection or pneumonia. About 2 weeks ago I felt extremely fatigued for days and had some cold like symptoms. I went to the doctor and found out I had the flu. I’ve finished all of my medicines and I am still feeling fatigued and I’ve been coughing up mucus and having a little shortness of breath. Also I cannot taste or smell. Is that normal or should I be worried?

  • Is it likely to get a lung infection?

    I was using this ecigarette. This junk landed on the floor, I picked it up, and stupidly cleaned it up with a disinfectant (Kirkland one to be more specific). I wiped the mouthpiece as well. Is it likely that my lungs could get infected by a superbug?
