This is pretty random, but do any of you guys get what I call the "random pain blues," when you get a random harmless pain somewhere in your body and you immediately panic assuming the worst? (i.e. "Oh no! I have a pain in my liver, I must have toxins pouring into my bloodstream!") They are so annoying, as you end up worrying over nothing.

gd.net doctor here:
Those are classic symptoms of hypochondria. You should probably see a doctor as soon as possible -- if untreated, you might end up contracting a rare and incurable cancer.

I have not seen this comic in so long it almost made me cry. :') But then again, I was really looking for the "I spun AIDS" one...

For future reference, user benryves had the sense to collect some of these and archive them.

In all seriousness though, I do not know what you mean. My arm really hurt today, but that's because I got bit in the deltoid by Bull Mastiff. Thing had a head like a cement mixer, so that hurt. Point is, pain usually has a reason for it.

Thanks for sharing those comics again -- it's been a long time since I've seen them, great to reminisce.


On a slightly more serious note, was your example of liver pain just a random made-up example, or have you actually had liver pain? Random aches and pains are pretty normal, but I don't think it's normal for a healthy person to experience liver pain -- if that's a specific example of an actual pain it might be worth getting it checked out though. Don't just worry over things though -- if you're concerned get your aches and pains checked out, otherwise just forget about it and move on. Posted Image

Maybe just lay off certain beverages and drink water?

+1, if not already doing this.

The archived ones are even better, especially when you were around long ago enough to actually get the context. One of my favorites is about wavinator's wall of texts. Ah, heck, they were all my favorite.

lol those comics were great. I am more likely to die from unintended function recursion. Posted Image
For all of you who don't care, it was a liver ache, but after drinking lots of water I was all better.

I started getting some weird abdominal pains a couple months ago. Suffered through them for a few days, until my brain finally convinced me I was dying of either a strangulated hernia or testicular cancer and I went to the doctor. He probed me quite thoroughly, including stuffing his finger up in places where I hope to God no man ever stuffs his finger ever again, but couldn't find anything wrong. Blood test showed signs of infection, and pee test showed it was probably a bladder or urinary tract infection. Course of antibiotics cleared up the infection, but I don't think anything can ever clear up the fact that some dude had his gloved finger poking my scrotum up through my guts.

That kind of thing haunts you, man.

@JTippetts: UTI is no joke, but to think, he could've just done a urine test at the start. :P

@Heath: I know, right? Too bad I told him one of my testicles hurt. (It did.) From now on, when the doctor asks me "where does it hurt", I will never answer, "my right nut." Even if my right nut is a blaze of pain.
