• URGENT: I think I inhaled spray paint - will I be ok?

    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'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

  • My hands are always too dry?

    I work in the childcare field, so hand washing is a must. I have used every hand cream I can think of. I avoid hand sanitizer if I can, and use soap designed for dry skin. It's starting to become painful and my knuckles are cracking. Are there any home remedies I can use?

    I started checking my blood sugar a few months ago because I was having all kinds of problems and the dr at the hospital thought I was diabetic because my blood sugar was 340 but I was on steroids for an ear infection and I had eaten a bunch of sweets throughout the day. I stopped all sugar intake other than sprite which is 38 grams per serving and there is 6 services in a 2 liter and that is what I drink throughout the day. When I first started checking my sugar the fasting was always between 65 and 90. After meals no more than 147. Yesterday after eating 2 fried chicken thighs and a fried drumstick with mac n cheese and mashed potatoes with sausage gravy from Bojangles it was at 131. Today I woke up and it was 106 and I didn't have anything to eat or drink after 3:30 this morning. I know carbs turn into sugar but I used to eat a lot of sweets and I stopped it all and I have been watching what I eat for the last month or so. I eat 2 eggs every day for breakfast and have nothing until supper which is usually a meat and either mashed potatoes or some kind of bean. I've stopped eating chips and a lot of things. Last night was the first time I have eaten at a restaurant in probably 2 months or longer. It was about 730 last night when I ate and I checked my sugar about 9 almost 10 and it was 131. I am about 320 pounds. I have went from 387 down to that since Feb. The last 2 days I have been urinating more than usual. I had my A1C checked about 3 months ago and it was 5.5.

  • 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?
