If I knew Dr. House, I'd ask him

(medfilter) asking for my girlfriend who's beginning to think she's crazy after the 2nd emergency room visit in less than a year where she's been told there's nothing wrong. Her primary complaint is stabbing pain on her right side, right at her ribcage. Sometimes radiating into her chest. Pain can go from annoying (most of the time) to debilitating. She states that she's had some kind of pain there for most of her adult life. I know you are not her doc but I'm hoping that the symptoms might ring a bell to someone. [more inside]

Help regarding partial seizures

I have never had seizures before. I am a 24yr old male. Recently I had multiple partial seizures which lasted approx. one hour each time. They took place over the course of one week. Since my last episode I have been mild/moderately dizzy, and see lights/spots/visual disturbances everywhere I look. The severity of this has varied, but it is always there. I have felt this way now for over a week. It is really difficult to function normally. My doctor was somewhat helpful, but gave no advice on how to deal with or preferably stop my current symptoms. I would appreciate any suggestions/answers from anyone who is familiar with this problem. Thank you for your time. [more inside]

Allergic Reaction to Metal

Allergic Reaction to Metal Filter

I can't wear any kind of cheap metal. Week before I wore a belt with a cheap ass buckle. Now I have an ungodly itchy rash on the left side of my body from my waist to my knee. Anyone have any suggestions before I scratch myself to death?

And a doctor isn't really an option as there is no insurance in the ol' damnitkage household.
