    I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that I'm 90% certain that you _do not_ want to consume liquid nitrogen. Consuming anything at cryogenic temperatures is... well, you'll probably feel something a little more serious than just an ice-cream headache.

    question/concern: my hips hurt & pop constantly. for the past six years, I have had pain in my hips and pelvic bones. when I walk, sit, stretch, anything-they pop (sounds like a loud, hollow knuckle cracking). I exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet. I’ve been to specialists and geneticists and they haven’t given me any answers. any idea what could be going on?

    About headaches, I sometimes have a headache which does not feel like it is induced by tension. Because at the same time my neck does not feel stiff or anything like that. It more feels like my disc are overused? Is that a possibility? Is there anything I can do to help them recover? As a background I have a bent upper back so my neck is compensating for that, I'm trying have it compensate the least possible.

    HELP ME PLEASE DR!!! There's a question after a small story. Hello Dr. I'm a 23 yold student that has been through hell. I broke both my legs in a span of 3 years, I walked with a broken leg for 7 months since the doctors didn't "see" the cracked ankle and so it all lead to from my 15th to my 23rd year me loosing confidence and gaining weight. I used to play basketball and handball and do modern Aikido. I went from 92kg to 143kg (which is right now my weight). I tried to do multiple diets, exercises, even tried stuff on my own, but I just can't get the motivation to continue in anything. The resaults show from time to time, but I am unable to get the drive to do anything. I also haven't had a gf nor been in physical contàc with a woman for 3 years now. Is there any way for me to get my motivation back? Any diet that won't cut me down from everything, or do I just need to delete all my social media, games, or what not (which I presume is causing me to feel depressed) and just get out of the house? P.S. I'm an IT student, so deleting social media will be a killing for me since I need to follow companies for there latest updates on parts, ideas, work, etc. But if you say it would help me to quit all that, I'll do it no matter what, I'll even take a brake from uni, since I can't anymore, I just can't...... I want my self from before I broke my legg the 1st time!!! HELP ME PLEASE!!!

    Question: Why do I get weird ticks when I'm stressed out? Like punching my chin, winking, moving my nose like a rabbit and moving my brows in a weird way. Also my eyes start shaking and idk what it is I've heard about tourette syndrome but it isn't an everyday thing usually, I can go hours without any ticks and they started appearing pretty recently and I'm 22. I've always been twitchy but I was just always shaking my legs etc, it never affected my face muscles.

    The funniest Untold Stories of the ER episode story I heard was this fellow and his first time date came into the ER. He had gone into anaphylaxis shock. The doctors got him stable and everything was fine. Then while the two were chatting and he was recovering, she kissed him (the date had gone well despite the issue) when all of a sudden he had gone into shock again. Turns out, she had eaten a PB&J and had bits of peanut butter in her mouth still. And he hadn't known (until that night) that he was deathly allergic to them.
