Judging by some of the "Calling all ARFdocs" that come up in the General Discussion, I might humbly suggest that we have a sticky of when to ask questions on this forum and when to get thee to a doctor now.
-Crushing chest pain, spurting blood, open fractures, loss of consciousness or a seizure (in someone not known to have seizures), potential drug OD. You know, info that we might take for granted but a non-medical person might not realize is a "get off your computer and go to the ER now" kind of thing.
And congratulations to our moderator!

really medical attention needs really medical attention
It's pretty clear in the sticky at the top now:
Topics must be related to medical training. No seeking medical/treatment advice
