We are back at it responding to your comments and questions via this video series. I love reading and responding to your comments and as you can tell I’ll jump into the comments section with a reply or a heart quite often. If one of the questions I answered was not detailed enough or you want more info on the subject please let me know so that I can make a dedicated video giving you all of the info!
A few favorite topics from this video are:
1) Holding in your pee
2) Pets licking your face
3) Remembering your dreams
4) Swallowing phlegm
5) Seltzer water vs. normal water
6) Cracking ankles
7) Sneezes stopping your heart
8) Removing stretch marks
9) Doctors with disabilities
10) Anxiety causing anxiety
Doctors are traditionally unreachable and I want to change that. So hop into this video and any other of my video’s comment section and ask Doctor Mike! I want to see your username pop up on my next responding to comments video.
If you have an idea of something you want me to cover in-depth, please let me know because I take your requests seriously.

  • Hey Dr. Ive heard that we shouldn't use any kind of tool for cleaning our ears such as cotton buds, spiral ear-pick spoon, swab ear wax remover. Why is it unsafe. Please, please explain further. I've been using those things.What should we use to clean ears then?

  • This is my first time commenting on your channel I follow your channel all the time. I am a 70-year-old man. My doctor recommended that I drink 6 to 8 glasses of water per day . But when I do all I do is Urinate a lot. Is there anything I can do to cut that down so I don’t have to stop at every bathroom inside plus get the necessary water that I need? Thank you

  • When I was in the Navy my heart rate was really high! Basically it's because I was always rushing and needing to get things done and when you are going up and down the ladder-wells 8 or more times a day rushing to get things done cause you don't want to get in trouble, so my body basically thought that I needed the extra adrenaline like 24/7. Once I got out of the Navy and started doing jobs where I didn't have to rush, it's at 88 -/+.

  • My blood pressure is 120 on 60 (could be wrong bc it's been a while) and every time I visit the doctors they ask me if I'm OK and/or if I have issues caused by my low blood pressure. They also seem very shocked every time they see it and sometimes they retake my pressure. It made me think it's abnormal and rarely seen to have a funktioning body without symptoms of low blood pressure. My hands and feet are always cold and sometimes turn blue or purple and I would be in pain (mostly after eating and if it's already cold in the room, the drumstick is what changes colour in my hands). I'm not sure if I should seek treatment... They never advice me to get it treated after knowing that I have never fainted or had issues related to it. What do u think I should do doctor Mike?

  • Being a truck driver the amount of urine that is held is more like 1L to the most held is 1.5L. My `notification` of needing to go is around 750mL. I do drink a lot of water while driving (approx. 2-3L a day). I do only hold it for about 1-2 hours mmax, but is it normal to have such a large bladder? Is it just my body formulating to what I do for a career? Whem I do relieve myself I stand there soemtimes for what seems like a minute and a half. Lol

  • Hello! Your content is wonderful and it's amazing to see a doctor, despite the heavy workloads, create regular content that's both educational and entertaining! I have a question. Whenever I run I get this indescribable pain all throughout my abdomen and diaphragm. It gets difficult to breathe. I'm not sure why it happens but I was wondering if it's(semi?) normal. I'm still at school age, and it happens when I run for more than a minute. It happens when I walk as well.

  • hii ,i really liked the video ,but actually i do have a question. well ,I'm a girl ,16 yo ,& I do have chest pain, more like in the middle to the left side ,I started being concerned because it's been now more than a year that it's happening, well I don't know if it's serious or not ,this pain doesn't last more than like 2~3 mins,sometimes for more & sometimes less, ,& it happened even during quarantine when I literally didn't do nothing but lying down watching yt ,movies or reading stuff (I mean I didn't do much physical activities ),all this for like ~3 to 4 times per month ,well at the beginning it was like once a month, then it slightly started to be more frequent. yeah I forgot ,I also do have some dizziness (& fatigue sometimes),but I don't really think it's related, well I'm not really sure but anyway . thnx for reading (/≧▽≦)/~┴┴ ,

  • After a surgery to remove my gallbladder I no longer had the 'go pee' feeling. It's been about 5 years now and I'm only now starting to recognize when I need to pee. I measured my morning pee once for my physiotherapists and it was 1.2 leters! I didn't have the pee feeling then either...... Only upside was that during my pregnancy I didn't need to ever run to the toilet like other pregnant women do. Thankfully my doctor just told me go every 3 hours and you should be fine.

  • Not sure if anyone remembers this but a few years ago when the Nintendo Wii first came out a radio station held a contest idiotically called hold your wee for a Wii. One of the contestants died. They had to drink as much as they could without urinating and one woman died of water intoxication. Drinking too much can lower sodium to dangerous levels. Some people think it's healthy to drink so much your urine is basically clear. It's not.

    • I'm not a doctor but it sounds like maybe your blood pressure is falling when you stand. I used to have this problem until I got older & no longer have low blood pressure. But I'd get checked out by a doctor and tell them what is happening because could be something totally different. Hope you feel better soon.

  • Hi, Vet Nurse here. A dog has fewer bacteria of a more harmful nature within their mouths than within a human mouth. If you have a dog, they tend to expose themselves to more bacteria than a human as well, but the varying bacterias cancel each other out with the stronger bacteria surviving. When you are exposed to these bacteria in small amounts, like when a dog licks you, it enables you to build up a tolerance to this bacteria and can actually help you as long as you are not immunocompromised. As long as you and your animal are clean, ie. bathed and brushed teeth, frequently it is perfectly safe for your dog to give you a kiss. The same cannot be said for cats, however, as cats excrete more harmful pathogens than dogs do, clean themselves (ie lick themselves) more frequently, and are exposed to baths far less than dogs so they can be far worse for your health than a dog lick. So, cat owners, try to bathe your cats more frequently and not allow yourselves to be scratched in the process...easier said than done...i know.
