pxlboy: It wasn't Tylenol; it was my Rx (whose name I forget now). In my sleep-deprived state, it became apparent that I overshared a bit. My apologies.


Oh wow. You don't need to apologize at all. I think a lot of people would be glad you'd be willing to share your experiences, especially if it discourages others from doing it.

I hope you got help after it happened if it was intentional. Regardless of if anyone else thinks otherwise, depression and suicide is a health problem, and can be treated. It's like a cold, is what I tell people I deal with who have issues with treatment.

The weirdest thing that ever came out of my mouth was that meatloaf my first wife baked for me the night before I decided to make her my ex-wife.

NO GAG REFLEX

/oh yeah baby
 
2013-03-15 10:08:44 PM  

namegoeshere: A Terrible Human: namegoeshere: IbiEvacua: how do you accidentally swallow an entire toothbrush?

Yeah, calling shenanigans on that one. A toothbrush is longer than a tongue. Even if you were brushing the very back I don't think you could drop it down your throat. The angle is all wrong.

If you're trying to make yourself throw up though it seems far more possible.

If you were shoving it all the way down there, maybe. Jeesh, sweetie. Stop by the chemist for some syrup of ipecac. It works much better.


If you want the toothbrush going out your nose perhaps.

Clock Spider Jerusalem: little known trick : you wanna barf? drink some dish soap mixed with water.


Discovered this one for myself as a young child. I was blowing bubbles or something and accidentally swallowed some of the liquid. Surprisingly effective, but not an experience I'd ever want to repeat.
 
2013-03-15 10:13:09 PM  
The 19-year-old let it slip while cleaning her tongue, and could not cough it back up as she has no gag reflex.



This is relevant to my interests.
 
2013-03-15 10:13:44 PM  
What I've learned from this thread is that I could never be a first responder or Er physician, and I'm going to be careful about what I swallow.

Pxlboy-

I was a stupid teenager and downed a bunch of pills and then (like a genius) told my parents because I thought I was getting back at them. After it was done, my dad came in while I was still strapped down and covered in vomit that it was the music I listened to that was the problem -- not the abuse or overbearing religion.


I had a similar experience with my Mormon mother. She had these migraine pills that half of one would knock her out for twelve hours. I took her whole bottle senior year.

After MY lovely hospital experience, the first thing out of HER selfish mouth was reminding me that she has no insurance and did I know how expensive that medication was?

There's a reason I didn't talk to my parents for five years. We're close now, but BOY was she dead to me for a long time after that caring and concerned motherhood episode.

/CSS?

A 10 pound hairball?  That's bezoar!  I have the strangest craving for some persimmon seeds right now.
 
2013-03-15 10:21:56 PM  
...how the Fark do you swallow something that long and rigid without facing the sky, anyway? I know I do my best work with rigid things when laying on my back, but I don't brush my teeth that way, nor eat.

/sorry my previous one went prematurely
//that's what he said

hardinparamedic: Most of the time I've seen pins, safety pins, paper clips, and coins. They'll actually pass on their own given time to do so, and surgery rarely goes in after them as long as they're not lodged in the esophagus or causing respiratory distress.


I would have guessed that pins might be dangerous, being that they're sharp and meant to pierce things. Do they just get digested in the stomach or something?

...metal...doesn't...digest...

There was a House episode about that I believe, wasn't it a needle that pierced the wall of the stomach and caused all these bleeds? Don't remember. But if the safety pin is closed, it poses no danger.

The Allen County Museum in Lima, OH has a much-hyped exhibit of Objects Removed From People's Stomachs.  Surprisingly, it is underwhelming.

Also, did anyone read this book when they were a wee tot?  (I seem to recall it had the slightly less cumbersome title Mother Mother I Feel Sick Call the Doctor Quick Quick Quick.)
 
2013-03-15 11:01:56 PM  
<CSB>

One of my favorite patient stories is of the guy who thought he was Superman.  Since Superman is the Man of Steel, he needed to keep up his steel content, which means he needed to eat as much steel as possible.  Dozens of surgeries billed to the taxpayers of CA.

On a serious note, pica can be a sign of psychosis often associated with self-mutilatory behaviors, or it can be a sign of nutritional deficiency or parasitosis, especially in kids.

Omahawg: find a pica and the world is their oyster

[news.universityproducts.com image 850x552]


Yes! That is what I thought of when I came to the thread.  I've been to the Glore museum to see that ... its pretty messed up.   Basically a mental patient kept eating non-food items, and this is what they removed from her stomach when she had to go in for surgery (and died).  All of that.  At once. In her stomach. The list on the upper left says how many nails, pins, buttons, and the full catalog of what was in there.

I used to work in endoscopy and we pulled a Reach toothbrush out of this guys stomach. It took a long time to get his esophagus dilated enough to get it out. He swore he was trying to brush too deep but the doc had an alternate theory....

Hi muffin :P

A toothpick, right! That was it.


And Fark, I am disappoint. I made a reference to my swallowing rigid things an hour ago and no bites. *shakes head sadly* Y'all are slipping.

Did an esophogram on an adult who, as a child, drank cleaning liquid under the sink. Doctor replaced his burned esophagus with small bowl that grew as he aged. New esophagus is 3 times as long as a normal one and confused the hell out of me before getting the full story.

They had someone who did that on an episode of ER in one of the first few seasons. Guy came in with symptoms of appendicitis, and they found atoothpick sticking out of his stomach after opening him up.

Well, safety pins as long as they're closed they'll let them pass. Straight pins will get watched closely, but they pass as well. The bowel, as long as it doesn't take a hard hit, will encase it in feces and pass it through. They'll do chest and abdominal x-rays to be sure that it has passed through the pyloric sphinctor and into the small bowel, and peristalsis will take over.

This is all sorts of wrong.

Swallowed a cockroach.  Used a fork to try to fish it out?  Swallowed fork?  How does this happen?
