  • I do like you say: don't be afraid to give a female CPR. When I learned to become first aider it was a bit worried at first too. A really weird action is to press the vein shut against the pubic bone to stop blood flowing to the leg with heavy bleedings. After trying that on eachother during the lessons the CPR instantly wasn't weird anymore.

  • I have a really bad habit where I don’t like chewing things but I like the flavor. My boyfriend loves gum. He buys big tubs of the bubblegum in the twisty wrappers. He chews a piece and then spits it out. I chew it and swallow it. And not just one piece. Its like i have a weird need to eat 20 pieces chew them a few times and swallow them. Idk why but I cannot just chew it and its like i cant help myself from needing multiple pieces. He has to hide the gum so I don’t eat it until it makes my stomach hurt. Idk why I do it.. I do the same thing with like biting my nails or picking at my nail polish.

  • Dr Mike could you please talk about vegan diet? What are your thoughts about it from a “medical perspective” as a nutrition not environmental or animal saving perspective. Today it is so hard to know what’s true or not, and which information is supported by beneficial companies. Therefore your thoughts as a doctor would be appreciated.

  • Ok I know this was 10 months ago God I hope you see this, I've been taking 10mgs of melatonin and 4 of the otc sleep aid pills along with my alprazolam...but it's still so hard to fall asleep and stay asleep. I have a background of anxiety and panic attacks...from those I know I'm not having any attacks nightly but nothing really works. I don't want to keep taking melatonin and sleep aids along with my prescriptions but I can't seem to get this across to my doctor. Also, I've been on alprazolam for over 15 years and he literally dropped me 30 pills one month..cold. Obviously I was god awful sick. Went back and he only understood 20% and said ok we'll go up to 75???? How do I explain that it's physically hurting me without acting like I'm just drug seeking?

  • Doctor, I have a question related with backbone disorientation (I think😂). So, my back bone is a bit tilted (not straight), hence my waists might seem a bit unbalanced right and left. It's not that obvious, but it is when i'm not wearing a shirt or if I wear really tight clothes. I also realized that I have the tendency of unconsciously tilting my body to the left while sitting down (when i'm not sitting up straight). What should I do to make my back bone straight again?

  • Dr.Mike, the whole reason that the 7 years gum stereotype came along was because someone was doing a bubble blowing contest and swallowed a big hunk of it, they took some weird medication to presumably get rid of the gum and it actually made it stick to the stomach inside. I was really hoping you could also answer this question: should I be worrying about my grades if I want to get into med school. I am in grade six.

  • Hi Mike, I had a hysterectomy at the beginning of the year. Because I kept my ovaries and Fallopian tubes, my gyn said I would not be affected by hormonal effects. But since I’ve had the surgery I feel my hormone balance is a huge mess. It’s definitely different than before, for example I don’t sleep well because I feel like I‘m burning inside, my cheeks are always red and hot, no libido any more (not because of the surgery, all went well, no problems after that), loss of hair, moody, sweating at night etc. My doc says it can’t be because I don’t need to take hormones. So I would love to hear a second opinion. Is she right and I have to check another doc to rule out other illnesses or is there a small possibility it IS caused by the hysterectomy?
