Any medfags willing to help ?
Here's the story :
>be me ,young idiot, have passion for Russia military equipement.
>buy a russian gp-4 "neutralised" on ebay,for 35 euros.
> a week ago, I receive it, and try it more than once.
>I washed it quickly with soap and water.
>When I put it, I feel like metal in my mouth and needles on my face.
For a week now, feel strange , head hurts a bit, I'm tired, I cough, nausea and shit.
Those GP-4 were used for 20 years and during Chernobyl.
The symptoms just get worse every day. I didn't verify if the mask was radioactive,and I worn it for at least an hour.
Did I just get cancer for 35 bucks on Ebay ?
>pic related, it's the mask.
What the fuck do you think OP? YEAH DUDE YOU GOT CANCER
Yes he would. If you ingest even a tiny tiny tiny grain of a radioactive dust that stuff will fuck you up. There is a difference between being exposed to radiations and being poisoned
the best bet is to let the condition develop and write down any new symptoms as they occur that way the doctors will have more to work with and it will be easier and quicker to diagnose you get you back home.
id give it a week atleast.
plutonium in one part per trillion can kill you if it enters your body. you need even less to get lung cancer from it. guess what's all over chernobyl? you're gonna fucking die, dude. why did you put it on?
Anxiaty gives me heart burn and diariah often. Do you have a history with this?
Still though, I'd stay close to someone until you feel better. Or be safe and go to your GP or the ER.
If I'm dying, here's the pic of ultimate breath.
Imo I think chemical poisoning sounds more plausible than fucking radiation sickness. Just go to a doctors, maybe even take the mask there in an airtight bag or something. See what they can do for you.
There is hospital in chernobyl in the basement of which they stored all the gear that the clean up crews wore. Supposedly that shit is Xtra radioactive to this day. Hope your mask didn't come from there
go. to. a. doctor.
bring the mask with you. Dont ask strangers on the internet. As someone in medical training, I know there are 5 parts to an exam. Youre only giving us one by telling us your symptoms. Helpful, but not enough. A doctor can check your lungs and order tests to see what the fuck exactly is going on.
And something is definetly going on.
Could be as simple as allergies. Could be something terrible like 35 euro cancer. Either way, best to go now to start treatment asap
But honestly we dunno if op is bullshitting or not there might not be nothing wrong with the mask.
The only way to tell is if he puts it on with a timestamp and Geiger counter next to him.
Could be anxiaty or panic disorder.
That shit is foreal the worst. Thinking the mask is radio active is of course a trigger. For me it's engadging in risky sex and doing drugs. No fucking joke.
I will get mad std symptoms from sex, go get checked out like 5 times in 3 months and have nothing.
With drugs like molly I will be sure that I have serotonin syndrome, get all the symptoms and generally freak the fuck out.
I also have GAD, and my psych explained that somatic symptoms are super common.
That being said, i would still treat this as a pretty big deal. Go to the doctor op, and look up if a government organization or police force can see if your mask is radio active. It's probably other chemicals though.
>tldr; i can get bad symptoms from anxiaty. But go to the doc and get the mask tested
I have an appointment with a doc at 3:30pm french time.
It's the only fucker on five doctors who has a Geiger counter, just in case.
Be around at 4:30. I'll put timestamp.
If trips, I have cancer.
Cancer doesnt pop up in half a day you stupid cunt.
You inhaled some shit from it and now got in paranoia status
You sucked too much cock and got gonorrea from it, which arrived to your lungs since you love so much to deepthroath.
Considering your stupidity i would pick the second.
(dont bear a grudge if you die of cancer anyway pham)
I used to be constantly searching for different gas masks on ebay as I was pretty into them at the time. I also have a GP-4.
I don't think I've ever seen a GP-4 that wasn't New Old Stock (it'd say NOS on the page). At $35, if nothing else, you over paid.
Also, in case you weren't aware and have been breathing with the huge yellow filter (known as a coffee can filter) on, those things are loaded with asbestos. Of the five or six masks I've had, I haven't washed any of them except a GP-5 because it was covered in talc and haven't had a single issue.
If I had to guess, you've gotten gastro and your timing is unlucky.
wait, so he's gone to see a doc or a troll?
or maybe the doc will troll him?
think of it, guys. Maybe there is some bored af french doc here reading this right now. maybe he could deliver us some keks today...
So many questions:
Why would you wear a gas mask for a whole hour? I find even modern gas masks get pretty unpleasant quickly.
If it hurt when you put it on, why did you keep it on?
In any case I think 99% you have some sort of virus which is entirely unrelated to the mask, or maybe it was on the mask when it was shipped. Probably a coincidence.
You definitely do not develop lung cancer in the space of a week, even with the assistance of radioactive gas or dust or whatever
You could possibly have a small amount of radiation poisoning from the plastic, although it's unlikely. Most likely the plastic itself is giving you a reaction, like bacteria or the chemicals in the plastic etc. Either way see a fucking doctor OP
Just left home.
It may be my last post on /b/.
If the doc decides that I immediatly go to the hospital, I may not post today or tomorrow.
So , in case it's my last post, I want to tell you all it's been 4 great years that I spent with you.
unlikely to be radiation.
that usually presents with nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and hair loss.
metallic taste might be something like lead.
could be anything really.
although then again, if its radioactive metallic particles then the clinical picture fits.
get a geiger counter, then get a doctor. oh also take some iodine tablets.
piss off faggot. you dont die overnight from radiation poisoning. its a long slow process.
and it is likely that aerosolised particles got trapped in the mask, which you breathed in.
What the fuck... All that shit and you can't even spell anxiety.
How much of an aspie cunt do you have to be to lie about having anxiety and pnic disorders on the internet.
Why would you do that anon?
Not entirely impossible but heavily unlikely. Coming from a small time collector of gas masks, its most likely just a reaction to the dust on it or the soaps you used, I personally wear mine frequently, usually with modern filters. Usually with gp4s and older are the filters they come with contain asbestos, such as the MU-2 ( might have got that name wrong)
>not taking radaway
I'm so playing fallout when I get home. Not that sorry ass jabroni faggot fallout 4 either.
Not true, comrade. Russia people are shit tier.
Chances are he actually bought it out of Lithuania or some other slav shit country because of the embargo. The only piece of russia those masks have seen is the inside of a warehouse
>Buys radioactive mask
>Washes it quickly with soap and water
Cancer can pop up in literally one second with enough radioactivity pointed at your testicles.
Confirmed for not knowing anything.
You're probably right though; I bet the mask is on too tight.
dont use those filters you retard, theyre fucked and ether the activated carbon has escaped or they have asbestos which has is fun. Not particularly sure which is the case cuz you know how soviets are with releasing data and all, but for sure they are dangerous to use. just get a new 20mm nato filter you faggot, fits the same threads and you wont die from lung cancer
>implying any of them after 2 was fallout
Might as well be called "Hit VATS; Win".
I play on survival because everything is fucking unfairly weak on any other difficulty (3 or 4, you pussy)
>inb4 vegas wasn't 3: extended version
It is too late, Comrade.
That would destroy your ball (not that you have any) but no cancer. All radiation focused creates a full destruction of cells, you need longer time and little damage adding up to generate a cancerous mass as yourself. That may be variable time, but 1 sec is bs.
>inb4 radiation is radiation wether you take it in 10 years or one second (legit retard)
>modding a game
It's no longer the original game and therefore has no bearing on the quality of the game itself. It's a whole new monster. A modded game is not uniform to the experience of the game when unmodified. We're basically speaking two different languages.
Same game engine. Different textures. Mod.
So how does Insurgency reflect on Half-life, then?
>Constant low-level radiation is the only way to achieve cancer-status
Cancer is a mutation of the human cellular structure so that the cell no longer functions as it should.
Mutation can occur in one second.
Generally it takes longer, and generally the amount of radiation required (mathematically speaking, because you don't have a flat chance at getting cancer no matter the dose) to give you cancer in one second would probably cook you to death.
