  • Rebecca you are like the best YouTuber ever in the world and you make the best videos that I have ever saw in my life I am just happy that you are still alive

  • Your so strong Rebecca, I cant believe what you’ve been threw but hey, you’ve done it! Nice work, we all love you! Can’t wait for you to go back to the old videos and no GM ��❤️

  • Let’s support Rebecca zamolo she’s the best YouTuberand I’ve gone through that case ball weigh differently and it really does her haven’t gone through surgery no bad no nothing it’s so different Rebecca I had to go to hospital and being at 9-year old is not that so Rebecca is very strong and call it makes me laugh you can do it Rebecca

  • My grandma was having a heart attack but didn’t know she just knew something was wrong. She was rushed to the hospital and sat their in pain while they said she was fine and was going to send her home but my mom said no something is wrong and she cant leave. The hospital did more test and found out she was having a heart attack.

  • the people that dislike this they are even lucky that they have eyes to see the dislike button but she has fear in her heart and she is singing that there is hope in her tomorrow and what u dislikers do is to hit the dislike button u know its not her fault she cant see and instead of u to encourage her so that the day she can now see and wants to check back on this video she will be happy and glad that we all supported her emotionally

  • What worries me as a nurse when I go to GP consult and they go hang on while I Google your condition.
    I appreciate no one knows, everything but taking history, doing examination ad during discussion find out what knowledge I have then add in well it is rare I have not come across before or recently let’s look at Google to find latest would be more confidence boosting.

  • Dr. Mike do you have any videos on PTSD episodes and what can help when it triggers your other mental health issues like anxiety, OCD, ECT? I know about CBT and DBT both the techniques aren’t doing much anymore. Thank you.

  • Three days ago I hit the middle of the ridge looking part of the top of my foot on a wooden plank. It felt like I bruised it, but looked like a small cut. The skin didn’t break, but it did look like it was bleeding underneath the skin. It still feels like a bruise when it touched anything, looks, and feels like a scab texture-wise, though as stated beforehand the skin was not broken. Do you have any suggestions on what happened and what the best course of action would be?
    When I first got the wound I rubbed peroxide on it and put Neosporin and a band-aid over it.

  • Every single one of these nurses should be fired. Given we’re all talking about our medical malpractice stories, here’s mine: growing up I had broken lots of bones, and was constantly hurting myself. This was always written off as just what kids do, then as I got older as an excuse to miss school (like you intentionally could or would break a bone ��) and because in A&E (I’m in the UK) no one ever has any time and it’s always so so busy they treat the condition you’re immediately there for but if it’s anything more serious they say see your GP if you think there’s a problem. Mine wrote me off every time and actually sent me to a therapist for making medical conditions up (even though I was literally breaking bones and was in casts etc) rather than a specialist, in the UK your GP has to refer you to a specialist for you to be able to use the NHS, otherwise you have to see someone privately which is crazy expensive. It got to a head when I was 14, when I broke my ankle at the start of the year, dislocated and broke my shoulder by June-ish, and in December I had a heart attack which led to me going in to cardiac arrest. Only after this was I actually recommended to a specialist who I’d been asking to see for years who diagnosed me with Marfan’s Syndrome. My GP said after the fact that he didn’t bother to get me to a specialist earlier because all kids are just faking injuries to get out of school and it’s hardly ever true, and laughed to me about it like it was all some big joke. Needless to say I reported him and transferred practices.

  • I was at the 5 year mark of a 30+ year career in the Army when I was almost killed….Again….

    I sat down….Had a long conversation with myself….Made peace with god and life…. It’s interesting from that point forward I saw life completely differently

  • This was beautiful. As a nurse this was beautiful to watch this wife face that this man was dying instead of dragging it out and making him suffer. I’ve seen it so many times where the family won’t face it and the patient suffers until the end. Death is not the enemy. I’ve learned that much.

  • I got married to my lovely husband for the past  years without conceiving and fibroid was the issue, i took different prescribed medication but could not cure it but my husband was so confident in me and kept encouraging me that one day someone would call me mother, we did not rest searching for solution from different Doctors all they could say was surgery and i was afraid of that then a friend in my office introduced me to Dr. Isah Johnson herbals medicine who sent his product to me through  UPS courier delivery service which i took and it really worked perfectly, and my Doctor. confirmed me pregnant after 3weeks of taking his product. You can contact him on whats-app: +2349065613964 or email [email protected] gmail.com

  • We sat with my brother in hospice. Unfortunately, he was unconscious by the time I was able to be with him. He had an infection and we were not allowed to touch him. That was hard. I am so grateful for the nurse who took care of us and him. They are such gifted people.

  • Every life is an impossibility. The odds of everything in history leading up to the instant you were conceived is astronomically small.
    The fact is: there are a million ways you could have died before today, and there’ll be a million more before the sun sets tomorrow. Every day you have is more than somebody else, and there will always be someone who gets to live longer than you. You have to value what you (or a loved one) gets. In the end you can take solace in the fact that you’ll be there to carry a piece of the person you lost for (hopefully) a long time, and when your time comes, those that you were close with will do the same.
    And IF your religious, don’t stop believing you’ll see them again when the time comes. Death is meant to shake your faith… Don’t let it.
    I hope this helps anyone struggling with a dead or dying loved one.
    It gets better.

  • My mother and best friend both almost died due to dismissal of symptoms. I plan on being a doctor to avoid the things these people are presenting. When my mom was 15, she started getting pain, being dizzy, etc. She went to several doctors but they all dismissed her. One day, she passed out and started puking. Her neighbor was a doctor and examined her. She actually had a huge brain tumor and almost died that day. If she had stayed at home for an hour longer she would be dead. She still has a few affects from the tumor. This was back in the 80s tho, so it should be better right? WRONG!!! Two years ago, my best friend had a brain aneurysm. She was 13 years old and had never even touched alcohol. The doctors, however, told her parents the symptoms were due to DRUGS!!! DRUGS! Thank god they got her to a different doctor. She was a miracle. I have many stories of my own personal experiences, but they aren’t as dire as these too. Basically, don’t dismiss symptoms.

  • Not a doctor but I’ve had chest pain that radiates to my arm and it turned out to be panic attacks. And doctors won’t treat it seriously because it’s just mental health.

  • That poor man looked like he was in so much pain… and he was like that for 5 more days?! How do you just let that go on like that? What a horrible thing to have to endure and remember.

  • I lost my Papa in April 2017, he was very young and full of life. I love him so much. Seeing this made me very emotional and also happy in some kind of way too, how people can come together and share their grieves, it’s quite comforting because after a while other people doesn’t really talk about it anymore, but deep in my heart I don’t want my loved ones to be forgotten just because they’re no longer here. I didn’t have the time to say goodbye, it was like a blink of an eye and he’s gone. Rest in peace, Pa. Your little girl misses you.

  • Cant say how much i hate when the doctors give patients a time to live, talk about loosing hope.. Doctors are wrong sooooo often its unreal… Prison time would be a normal thing in real life for a thing like this

  • The “When I get admitted” meme actually comes from the chronic illness community! Its about when those of us with chronic illnesses have a complications that require brief hospitalization. People who don’t know (or sometimes do) about our illnesses sometimes say that even though we will really never get healthy.
    (And before someone says it yes we know the people mean well this is just a joke inside the community)

  • This made me cry. I took my grandmother to the hospital and stayed with her there till her death. In between we were making plans of what we would do together once she came out. It’s painful to witness someone you love slowly fade away before your eyes.

  • Thought I could watch this but I broke down when there nurses came in as it reminded me of when my dad passed away last year, I miss you dad x

  • Since I discovered your channel and watched some of your videos, I got addicted. ��

    The smile, the humor and the “Pi-woop!!!” kill me every time. ����

  • my great grandfather have alzheimer and my great grandmother have recently passed away two months ago and my grandmother tried telling him she passed away but he doesn’t remember and just asked us when will she come back from the hospital. My grandmother is trying to find someone who can help him and tell him that nana passed away. My heartbreaks when he asked “when is she coming back?” knowing that she won’t be coming back. I really feel bad for the couple

  • Trying to save everyone when you are just 1 person isnt fun when you are a firefighter… teams work better together. We still cannot save everyone:(

  • Part of the journey is the end…It is the end that gives life it’s meaning…It may be scary to die but living forever scares me more…

  • I cant believe people dislike this. This is the real kindness of earth people. What is the matter not to like people do good for others?

  • I remember the first time my senior said me to go and break this news to a family during my medical internship……it took me almost 30 min to come to the point….and later i cried that entire night.

  • I went to the ER by ambulance for chest pain once.They did all the test and I was fine.They diagnosed me with anxiety.I went a second time for same issue and again anxiety.Third time really scared.I could barely stand.Got in there and doctor said “you been here three times for this and three times we told you it was anxiety.Your heart is fine and if it happens again it most likely is anxiety.” Now I’m too scared to go to ER with chest pains as I’m afraid they will snap at me.

  • ” The investigations reveal 4th stage aggressive metastatic inoperable prostate cancer spreading to kidneys and bones….” Too late for me.

  • Women being disbelieved by doctors is a hurtful truth, it was even more hurtful when it was a female doctor disbelieving me. My heart could/still can beat up to 300bpm.

    I’ve played sports all my life, and around when I was 14 I started getting these tight feelings in my chest, and I would sweat profusely and if they got bad my sight would go tunnel visioned. I played sports like rugby and would just “play through the pain” because eventually I would feel a giant THUD in my chest and I felt great again! I would be pretty much guaranteed to get one of these episodes every rugby match at least once. My high school coach being who he was would yell “it’s just because you’re unfit!” My GP also told me “women often have irregular heartbeats. It’s normal.” Being a teenager I was like “ok, sweet!”

    Years passed of these attacks, and I graduated high school and hung up my rugby boots for 5 years, until I met some coworkers who played with a local club and I laced up once more. Unsurprisingly, I still encountered that same sensation (like my heart was fluttering) and the sweats, and the tunnel vision. Never fainted though…tally that in the win category. But being in my twenties now I figured, hey…why not go get it checked out once more.

    My GP (same lady as 5 years proir) was again insistent it was nothing; “You saw me about this before, yes?” Luckily, I had become a cold and jaded adult! And I was adamant she give me a recommendation to a cardiologist instead she reluctantly wrote me a 24h holter monitor rec “It will probably not capture anything.” Well, it did, a WPW/SVT episode of 230bpm. The top cardiologist in the province personally called me in a panic at 11pm on a Friday to instruct me not to do anything physical until I saw him on Monday.

    Unfortunately, no happy ending I went through three ablations (two heat, one cold). They successful destroyed one pathway in the first (w/ heat), but turns out in total I had two additional pathways in my heart. I actually scared the electrophysiologist because after the first ablation I complained of still getting the WPW/SVT and he gave me a week long monitor that captured an event of my heart beating at 300bpm. The second pathway is resilient, and survived a heat and cold attempt on it. The second one is also so close to the natural electrical pathway (4mm, and the tool is 3mm) that the heat eletrophysiologist is worried about trying again…cause if he kills my natural one that means a pacemaker. So, beta blockers have been my friend ever since the two fails.

  • All thanks to Dr. Umoru for his marvelous work in my life, I was diagnosed since 2014 and I was taking my medications but I wasn’t satisfied I needed to get Herpes out of my body system, I searched about some possible cure for Herpes. I saw a comment about Dr. Umoru of how he cured someone from herpes with his effective herbal product. I contacted him and he guided me. I asked him for solutions to my problem and he sent me a medication which I took for two weeks. I took the medications as he prescribed and I was surprised after going for test my result came out negative. You can also get help on any problem you are Suffering from such as.
    HPV
    Cancer

  • I got pretty offended by the second one. My father and mom went to the hospital and my mom thought my dad was having a heart attack. A nurse laughed and turns out, my dad had a broken heart attack the day before my 13th birthday so I spent my bd in the hospital. No hate to nurses or anything ♥️

  • This reminds me when I asked my doctor about the risks of contraceptive pills bc I was taking them for a long time already and she laughed at me and said “oh of course you read those things on internet” and didn’t answered my questions

  • NO ONE SHOULD ATTACK OR PUSH THE VUNERABLE LIKE THIS WIFE TO KILL HER HUSBAND. GOD IS THE ONLY ONE TO GIVE LIFE & TAKE IT. THIS IS OUT RIGHT MURDER. WOMEN OF DEATH. DO NOT BELIEVE THEM THERE ARE CONCEQUENCES IN THE AFTER LIFE.

  • My mother died at home pre hospice 1982. What a challenge. A friend who was a nurse came over and administered morphine that I picked up at the hospital. We were so on our own. Mom was 55. Thank heavens for our hospice nurses who care for families.

  • Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. 36 But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe. 37 All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. 38 For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. 39 And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. 40 For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.”

  • I highly recommend Dr. Umoru herbal product. I was able to get rid of my Herpes after using the medications I got from Dr Umoru. You can get more information on Dr Umoru YouTube channel or get in touch with this via email [email protected] com or WhatsApp/call +2348165436638

  • Watching his video’s I always feel so lucky that I’m born in the Netherlands, with a good health care system and study loan system. A lot of times the bad American health insurance comes up and paying off your college money for the rest off your life time.

  • Also you should follow your board guidelines on social media. im a student nurse in Australia we have a framework and guidelines on social media

  • This is a story about when I was training to be an LPN in high school. (I won’t say any names for privacy.)
    It had been a couple months since I starting training at a nursing home/assistant living place and I was making my rounds on the first floor. I had finished checking up on my resident and they were eating breakfast so I was told to see if anyone needed help or fix up some rooms. Half way down the hall, one of my classmates peaked their head out and looked happy to see me. She called me over and asked me to help “deal” with a resident who was being “difficult.”
    Of course I went over to help. I was honestly so upset on how the actual nurses were treating her. There were 3 of them in there yelling at her to get up and hurry up.
    She was complaining that she was tired, didn’t want to move, and wasn’t feeling well. They didn’t listen to her and just forced her into her wheel chair while she was screaming.
    They pushed her into the bathroom and realized she wasn’t going to cooperate so they called me over to give her a quick “bath” while she was on the toilet. It was my first time ever giving someone a bath on the toilet. Anyways, she was upset and kept saying it was too cold and that she didn’t like me.
    In a calm voice, I said “I know, it’s cold. I know. But I will go faster so we can put you in warm clothes. Please bear with me.” She grumbled and I did that as quickly as I could.
    After that, we got her in her clothes, put her shoes on, I let her brush her teeth on her own (even though the nurses told me not to, but I realized she wanted to have her own independence).
    And once she was all washed up and good to go, I brushed her hair before they would wheel her out. I did this all on my own as the other nurses and my classmate watched me.
    As I was brushing her hair, she grabbed my other hand and she apologized for being mean to me and that she wasn’t feeling well and that I made her feel better.
    I told her “It’s okay, I’m not upset at you. I know you weren’t feeling well and you were awoken so early (it was 7am). I’m happy you are feeling better.” She really relaxed after that.
    When I finished, the nurses wheeled her out to breakfast. That was the last time I saw her.
    Apparently, that night, she died of a heart attack…
    In conclusion, I hope medical professional can see what empathy can do for someone. I don’t know if I truly made her feel better but knowing that she had at least one, meaningful and kind interaction with someone makes me feel hopeful.

  • Oh the one were they add pressure where it hurts. I had a ruptured appendix last year and it seemed like everyone wanted to add pressure, even after my surgery. Yikes xD

  • IM CRYINGGGGG she’s so cute and there’s a reason why she was born without eyes, it’s so cute how she can do so many brave things To be honest I
    I can even sing in front of my mom I can only sing in the shower ������������

  • The people who disliked are just sad that they can’t sing like a princess like you can and they are mean and they have no heart we love you princess ��

  • My grandfather died of coronavirus in June 2020.…..we were not allowed to meet him till the last moment… He was all alone in the hospital…..
    I really cried after watching all these people in the hospital as in the corner of my mind, I know that my grandfather also knew that he was going to die����

  • She may be different,but don’t hate,she is beautiful and talented! Even I wouldn’t be able to be as brave as her..this broke my heart ❤️

  • …I’m speechless this is amazing this is NOT a little girl she is a strong women when I was her age I wouldn’t be able to do that! Whoever disliked has no heart

  • I started crying wen her mom sed it’s hard to see you’re babby suffer because I have eye disease and it warms my hart that I’m not elone.����

  • It’s hard and sad to imagine that this man was once a young healthy boy living his life. We’ve all been there and in some ways someday, we’ll all arrive where he is now.

  • True story when I was a little girl a nurse at my blind school thought I was faking being sick so much I had this horrible cough that would not go away I couldn’t breath and was taken to the emergency room so many times so the last time that nurse got to be around me she yelled at me and told me to stop faking so I held my breath cause she scared me and I started turning blue and couldn’t breath cause I was coughing so much my mom took me out of school after that cause I was so sick it turns out I was aspirating and it could have killed me cause it was so severe I have a lot of medical issues so I’ve met some really mean nurses and doctors so videos like this really bother me �� it’s so frustrating when you don’t know what’s wrong with your and a nurse or doctor just acts like your a liar or crazy it’s very frustrating so I appreciate all the doctors and nurses out there that care it makes me so happy ❤️

  • Regardless what you believe, you are all going to die. God or no God. For me, I will throw one hell of party and take Heroin and MDMA. be happy…

  • About one year ago I was suffering from some scalp fungal infection. When I went to the dermatologist, she didn’t even care to look at it and told me that I was “imagining things” and I should do deep breathing exercises. And just like that she dismissed me. Guess who had to suffer for one whole year?.
    I’m a med student now and I’ll make sure I’m able to help my patients without such bias and indifference.

    P.s. another doctor who makes really engaging videos is Violin MD (Sioban)

  • Um for all you males (including me) were probaly gonna die before females and have a higher chance for cardiac arrest and a heart attack so enjoy life has the best life and make sure every little time counts.

  • I had a doctor tell me that my wrist hurting was in my head because it was broken but every time I put pressure on my wrist like pushing doors or picking stuff up it hurt really bad but your fine it doesn’t feel broken. I came in again and told him the same thing and he said just wrap it if it hurts that bad and sometimes my wrist will randomly hurt for a few days and the go away and i don’t know what it is because my doctor said it wasn’t broken so there’s nothing wrong

  • Me hasn’t studied for the test panick
    Me watched doctor Mike’s video calm
    Also me watching at 1 am without drinking water and sleeping panick

  • Omg that second video was literally me. I’ve never done any drugs, and I only drink socially. I was having serious chest pain one day, and I was freaking out because I had never had those symptoms before. Then, the ER doctor treated it like it wasn’t a big deal or assumed it was probably some drug:/

  • I’ve been lucky enough to have had doctors that have listened to me, but so many in my community (invisible disabilities) don’t have that.
    Even with my good doctors sometimes I have symptoms that last a while and I bring it up and it can get brushed off because its not a typical presentation of my chronic condition.
    Sometimes I feel a little brushed off or not taken seriously because I’m blessed enough to not have major organ involvement with my condition.

    “Domt mix up your Google search with my medical degree?”
    A lot of us in the disabled community have another one
    “Don’t mix up your hour long seminar with my living with this every second of every day.”

    Doctors can be so helpful, but dismissing symptoms is how you get people killed.

  • Omg unrelated but what’s wrong with me, halfway through the video I started smelling latex gloves and what a dentist smells like, what!?

  • I think the thing with the faking video is that a lot of patients thinking that their doctors won’t believe them unless your missing a arm or a leg or you’re massively bleeding. In fact I was send home multiple times by my doctore who told me I was fine and didn’t believe me and afterwards I had to go to the hospital because it got worse:/ after that I had always trouble with seeing doctors because I always thought that they won’t take me serious.

  • I’m reading all these incompetent doctor comments and I’m just soooo angry. Why has none of these commenters sued these practitioners for malpractice when it was proven that they could have had detrimental consequences from their symptoms due to negligence?

  • I am a recovering drug addict, and when I was using I was having abdominal pain, so bad that sometimes I could not stand. I was 18 at the time, and went to urgent care because it got so unbearable. I told them I was concerned about my liver and kidneys. Getting painkillers didn’t even cross my mind; I was literally shooting fentanyl every day, I could swallow a whole vicodin prescription at once and not feel anything. I was just genuinely concerned about my organs. However, when I tried to tell the nurses and doctor this, they all clearly just assumed I was looking for drugs. But I cannot blame them; my arms were covered in track marks, I looked like a raccoon with how sunken in my eyes were, I weighed 130 lbs at 6’2, my heart rate was 140+ bpm, and I couldn’t stop shaking. I don’t know if it was a hallucination or not, but I swear I overheard them talk about how I was clearly “just a drug addict”. They did a urinalysis and my pee was dark brown-red, but then just gave me a prescription for tylenol (important) and a pamphlet about flank pain. A month later, I went to detox and treatment, and when they ran tests they found I had hepatitis C, my liver had ALT levels over 400 (was extremely overactive and inflamed, later did an ultrasound and luckily had not started scarring yet), and my kidneys were extremely overactive. I know I was a using drug addict, but to have them brush me off as just a junkie seeking pills (which, again, was also insulting because of how weak that stuff is compared to what I was using), and telling me to take TYLENOL which is never recommended for people with liver damage to consume because of how toxic it can bedid feel kinda shitty. Luckily I’m clean now (have been over a year), but I still know nurses and doctors always have that bias and suspicion. I also have type 1 bipolar disorder and ave gone into full manic and psychotic episodes while clean, and while trying to seek emergency adjustments on my antipsychotics, the doctors thought I was using drugs. And accusations like that hurt when I’ve been trying so hard to stay clean. But, I understand. They have to be suspicious, but it can be harmful.

  • Okay I wanna be a doctor, I really respect doctors and idolize doctors but there’s one question. Why do almost ALL the doctors have weird handwriting? Not one or two but ALL of them.

  • I had a therapist that said I was looking for attention and said my depression was fake. My mom took me to a different doctor who said the complete opposite and I was diagnosed with severe depression.

  • I have SEVERE bladder pain. Had multiple doctors just prescribe me to physical therapy and check my urine and that’s all. I have a positive ana and have had bladder pain since I was a kid, went out of state to see specialists. Last doctor I seen asked if I had followed up with physical therapy and when I said no he told me I wasn’t willing to put in the work to get better. I begged him to look in my bladder (which nobody has ever done) and he said no. “There’s nothing he can do for me because I’m pregnant” this pain has affected my daily life in everything that I do. I know there is just something maybe lesions in my bladder but I’m not taken seriously.

  • Reading through the comments here Dr.Mike I wonder if you have advice for those of us who have NOT been taking seriously by doctors. I suffer from sciatica terribly and because I’m “too young” its impossible to doctors for me to have it �� I live in horrific pain and have for 14 years because doctors wont take me seriously. How do we get a doctor to listen to us?

  • I went to the ER for bleeding after a positive pregnancy test. I got an ultrasound and the lady was incredibly mean asking if I really was pregnant and not on my period and said I have nothing and I was wasting her time. 2 weeks later I was rushed into emergency surgery for an Ectopic pregnancy.

  • You should be thinking of whats next after it. Temporary happiness enjoyment doesnt actually make you happy always. It never. I wish somebody also know what really happens. MISFORTUNE for those who even want to enjoy, ignoring the time of end of life. Fuck those people. Look at the mirror and say i not young forever.May people come in the path of Light.

  • Oh I thought the first one was funny UNTIL I saw that tweet. How do you know someone’s faking? I’ve been genuinely ill and people thought I was faking till they realised I wasn’t. Sigh. That’s not cool man.

  • A few months ago, I was diagnosed with Spine Scoliosis and I thought my back was bent all this time… nobody listened and a few months ago I was right. I not am on medication and regular cleanouts.:'(

  • To be honest I’ve been sick for a long time. I can’t eat anything without feeling the most horrible abdominal pain, everything makes me sick. My family and friends keep telling me to go to the hospital but I refuse to do so because I’ve had such horrible experiences with doctors (being told I’m faking it, that its just in my head, acused of being on drugs are just a few) that I’d rather deal with the pain until it’s too late than go to the er.

  • yah well if your a doc then u can easily pay it back my girlfriend is a PA and all her docs are incompetent and she dose like half of their stuff and yet they make 50k more a year

  • can you make a video warning about the blue whale challenge? It’s not ok to do and a lot of people don’t know what it is and since you have a big platform, I think it would be a big help for a lot of people.

  • Screw these so called doctors, i had wanted to be a doctor for so long and failed the uni entrance exam (maybe i can try again idk) simply bc i like helping ppl with their health. I wouldnt ignore a health issues bc the human body is more complex than what anybody thinks.
    I think i deserved to be a doctor more than these asshats.

  • Ges wat I subscribed all you videos����������because……SAW YOU ON YT ON A PARTY YOU LOOK PERFECT AND PREATY OMG YOU OK������������������������������������������������������������������

  • I had a friend who died of cardiac arrest at 24. Mixing certain medications with alcohol can be dangerous, and he made the lethal mistake.

  • Something similar to the second video happened to my uncle last year. He goes to the hospital with chest pain radiating to his arm, and shortness of breath, they told him it was a panic attack and sent him home with no testing of any kind. 5 days later he has a stemi, 10 high percentage blockages and is extremely lucky he has no heart damage.

    It’s sad but I don’t trust my community clinic anymore.

  • At the end of 2016 I ended up with salmonella, didn’t figure it out until much later, and was so dehydrated that I started having seizure type symptoms. Went into the doctor with my mom and the doctor asked her is I was pregnant ��‍♀️ the doctor completely ignored me. 4 weeks later I was finally feeling normal again after having to go to the ER. In November 2019 I herniated a disc in my lower back, I was having problems with bladder control and the medical assistant told me “it’s probably just a UTI” it was never brought up to the doctor and ended up with me having spinal injections, that didn’t work, and finally surgery. By the time of surgery I had so many nerve symptoms from my waist down that the surgeon had me in in under a month for surgery. Now 3 weeks later I have zero symptoms of the herniation.

  • To all my lovely people, Me as a Christian when someone dies. We don’t cry, not because we don’t love them. But because it brings pain to the entire family, instead we celebrate! We celebrate life, we celebrate the time they had to live. At the end of the journey we’ll see them again, because you die yes. But the journey never ends

  • I get accused of being a drug seeker when I’m really in too much pain for my meds to handle and considering I’m on fentanyl 75mcg patches, oxycodone, gabapentin and amitriptyline that’s saying a lot. I have Ehlers Danlos syndrome, fibromyalgia and bulging discs in my neck and lumbar area down to the end of my tailbone so I can’t stand for more than a minute without support due to muscle spasms in my spine that feel like a taser on full blast.

  • I love this video so much I love you so so much you’re my favorite YouTube I love your videos I’m so so much I am like a big fan of your videos so I love you videos and white

  • I’m terrified of death. More the unknown and not knowing what happens after we flatline. I don’t believe in Heaven or Hell, and so I only have the idea that “nothing” happens. But, what is “nothing”. This thought keeps me up at night so many times

  • Years ago I went to the ER with serious chest pains that had lasted about 6 days. I was finding it hard to breath, lift anything, major pain spikes etc. The Doctor after doing surface level checks told me there was nothing wrong and it was just cold weather (I was 21) and tried to send me on my way. I had to demand they at the least x-ray my lungs. I had a pneumothorax in my left lung and partiality deflated right lung. Had I listened to the Doctor I would likely be dead.

  • “we know you’re faking” is why i’ve been struggling for 5 years to get a fibromyalgia diagnosis but every doctor keeps giving me random supplements and refuses to diagnose. Meanwhile i’m 32 and it takes me 15 minutes just to get out of bed in the morning with how stiff and painful everything is. Not to mention all other symptoms.

  • I had appendicitis when I was 9 and my mom kept calling the hospital explaining my symptoms (which had been going on for 3-4 days) which included throwing up constantly, not being able to keep any food or drink down, CONSTANT PAIN, not being able to walk, and she called them multiple times and they died it was THE FLU and nothing to be worried about. Woke up one night screaming in pain and that ended up saving my life because that very night my appendix burst and when I got to the hospital they made me wait 5 hours to get into surgery and after I couldn’t eat or drink for three days and I had to stay in the hospital for a week and I couldn’t go back to school for 2 months. If you don’t know appendicitis is usually not a big deal and usually just requires a surgery then you go home in a few hours. I had to suffer for years because they false diagnosed my over the phone with the flu. After I healed from the surgery I had no apatite for years and became extremely underweight which caused enough problems on its own.

  • all these crazy stories about patients getting mistreated and my most dramatic story is i just got a pigeon chest cause the doctors didn’t bother to get a brace on me when i was a wee boy lmao

  • SPIKES Protocol:

    SETTING the stage: 1:02 (since the patient is bedridden and is with his wife in his private room, no one will disturb their conversation )

    PERCEPTION: 1:17 (Asking how the pt feels about the disease or perceives the situation as)

    INVITATION: Not included in the video

    KNOWLEDGE: 4:03 (Making the patient or power of attorney cognisant of the disease and prognosis in simple straightforward words)

    EMPATHY: 3:11 (The doctor understands patients predicament and shows support)

    SUMMARY AND STRATEGY: Not included in the video but contains creating a plan, summarise all modalities of care, having an End of Life discussion and getting any advance directives.

  • These videos pissed me off, when my sister was 16 she went to the doctor several times across a few months complaining of chest pain and a persistent cough that got so bad she couldn’t sleep on her back. Our doctor kept sending her home with treatments for a chest infection, and the one time he wasn’t in and she had to go to another doctor he checked her heart and breathing and called an ambulance immediately. She was diagnosed with lymphoma and it had physically moved her heart.

  • I went to a doctor like 6 months ago about chronic intense knee and ankle pain, (I was a figure skater for 10 years and broke and fractured and bruised my knees and ankles many times) it’s gotten to the point where i can’t take the stairs in winter at all, and it’s hard to sit and stand in the cold, and my doctor just ordered a test, and at the test i had to sit till, but i have leg tremors as well, uncontrollably, that get worse the longer im still and the tech kept getting really frustrated and barking at me, even after i said about them, doc saw the results and said nothing’s wrong, and told me it’s not an issue at all, and then had the audacity to accuse me of it being due to not doing my PT as a child after all those injuries, even though i always did diligently for way longer after an injury than i needed, and so she prescribed me some pain pills and said “i’ve loaded 3 refills so take them when you think you need it, but since nothings wrong im not giving you any more after this.”
    I didn’t come to you to get pAIN PILLS DOCTOR. i haven’t used any and don’t really want to, i just want to know whats wrong or something that could help more long term. or know if nothing can help. my pain isn’t fake. its so annoying and frustrating.

  • When I was 16 I cut myself really bad and tried to kill myself and my doctor and nurse were amazing. Kind, caring and compassionate they made me feel so much better. Until another nurse came in the room when my doctor was stitching me up and said “you did a good one huh” my doctor and nurse were so appalled and disgusted at the other nurse. My mom was sitting next to me sobbing and stop mid crying to just stare at the women. The whole situation was insane.

  • I’m a dancer and I remember that I had a knee injury like 3 years ago and went to the ER. I was unable to walk because of the pain and I didn’t want to cry because I’m an adult. The doctor told me to walk it off. They didn’t gave me any pain medicine, nothing to reduce the swelling, they didn’t send me to rehab. Until this day I still get pain and I’m unable to fully bend my knee

  • when i was 8 i was experiencing really bad headaches and drowsiness and muscle pains and would catch the common cold like it was nothing and be sick for weeks without getting better we would go to my paediatrician and she’d just say i might be allergic to something i eat so we had to keep a book of everything i ate then i was faking headaches and they were supposed to watch me when i threw up from my headaches to make sure i wasn’t FORCING MYSELF to be SICK i was 8 i didn’t know what that was and i was screaming and sobbing and uncontrollably shaking from how bad they were and during this time we were in an out of the emergency room for rashes being sick everything and anything we went there they’d refuse blood samples refused any help besides saying to just give me some meds one of the rashes got so bad i had welts covering my legs with hives on the welts and in such pain i could barely walk but according to the er doctors i was allergic to my detergent the one of the last times i had gone to the er i woke up in the middle of the night and my lips felt numb and tingly i thought it was just from waking up but it didn’t go away so i went to wake up my mum and she told me to turn on the light my lips were so swollen they were flipped inside out so we went to the er but by that time the swelling had gone down so the doctor just said to take benadryl then asked if i had any other rashes or swelling my mum showed him a pin dot rash on my waistline and he said the benadryl will help that too once we stopped it when they said to i fell sick again and went back to the er my mum broke down in front of the resident doctor and said that there’s really something wrong with me to please take blood do test just find out what’s wrong and he basically rolled his eyes and said that he’d do a full examination on me and was feeling around my liver and when he touched it he jumped back in surprise and said one sec he was going to get the doctor and when he came back we saw that the doctor was the same one that we had a couple nights ago for my swollen lips and he felt my liver it was apparently the size of a football and he said they’d do blood work and my platelets were so low my arm wouldn’t stop bleeding for ages after the blood was drawn when he came back he immediately said we have good and bad new bad news i have leukemia good news it’s the best to cure
    when i got admitted into the hospital the nurse asked if i had any rashes or anything else wrong and my mum showed her the pin dot rash on my waistline and she took one look and said it’s petechiae one of the most common signs of leukaemia and my mum was so pissed that the doctor wasn’t concerned at all with it

    we later found out that my chart had a marking on it for people that are probably hypochondriacs so for the people working can get them done quicker to focus on the other patients more and my medical records charts were over 2 inches thick (this was before they had computers to document your charts on when i was diagnosed they would always bring out the stack of papers which was your medical records) because of how much i was in the er even though i was only 8 at the time

  • Doesn’t it make sense to google symptoms to help you understand what may be going on before you go into the doctor?? This way you can be prepared and if you’re worried about “oh u might have this” you could ask the doctor so they could but your worries to rest

  • My mom was sent home with ibuprofen when she had pains in her stomach because the doctor said she was faking it. She had a tumor which was found when she went back and had emergency surgery.

  • There is a permanent cure for herpes virus with herbal medicine I got from Dr Ayomede, this man has great herbal supplement to treat hsv 1&2

  • I have a PhD in Health Communication and I cannot agree more. Health miscommunication and Health Literacy are and have been extremely important and trusting the source of that information, whether it is from your doctor or someone who claims to be a doctor on social media/mass media is a key element in increasing health literacy. BUT as you discussed users need to be aware of misinformation that is everywhere on the internet and the resources they can turn to that will give accurate health information like https://medlineplus.gov. The thing I will say is to always question the source, from your own doctor to a doctor you see on screen. If the diagnosis doesn’t feel right or you aren’t getting the care you feel you should be getting, seek another doctor. As we see in these videos, doctors are human, they complain (incorrectly on the internet) about their work just like the rest of us and so we always need to remember to not have a “White Coat Fallacy” or believing everything they say just because they wear a white coat. As Dr. Mike says they all have specialties (His is Family Med) a Foot surgeon cannot give you a diagnosis about a headache just like an Cardiologist could not diagnose a torn tendon. If you see a doctor on screen giving advice, the first question you should ask is what is their qualifications? Anyway, just my thoughts from someone on the patient advocate side of this research:)

  • I had preeclampsia with my 2nd baby and started having high BP with my 3rd to the point of blowing out some rods in my eye. At one point, my whole body went weak and my lips went blue and my chest started hurting. I couldn’t walk.

    I go to the E.R., tell them my family history of early heart attacks and my history of preeclampsia.

    The doctor looks at me and says, “Well, you’re a woman. You probably just fainted.”

    Then he gave me aspirin. I was wearing the little hospital wristband saying I had an allergy to NSAIDS. You just can’t win when you’re a woman.

  • Im sorry to tell you, but your 200 year old sick husband is dying. Im just kidding you guys, videos like this do no good to our minds. Just live life and be happy

  • I really respect your humble attitude. 3 years ago I spent 6 months in agonizing pain in my abdomen only to be blown off by 3 different doctors. I was actually told by an Er doctor “ I know your only here for pain medicine and I’m not buying that your in pain” My weight loss doctor finally found the problem after I refused to leave without having a through exam. Turns out the catheter to the Lap Band that I had for 11 years broke a part and was moving around and wrapping around my liver and other organs, and ended in me having emergency surgery. Not being taken seriously almost cost me my life. I now have serious anxiety about seeing any doctor for help because I feel they won’t listen.

  • I appreciate Dr Mike saying not to stereotype people based on their appearance. Even if someone looks young they might be 40, you don’t know! As someone with an invisible illness I found those tik toks not just in poor taste but idiotic. I have acute aplastic anemia and have been dismissed in an ER for chest pains before. Took them 4 hours to properly see me and my heart rate was still over 130 bpm. I look even younger than I actually am as well. People can look young and in shape and still have a serious medical condition.

  • Sadly, I feel like the second video is so true, though. Especially depending on the type of area you live. Locally, here, there is a massive drug problem and no real treatment options. I went in with a dibilitating headache after being unable to rid it for two weeks. The doctor immediately assumed I was faking it for drugs. She did not help me. I was back a few days later after no relief and was so thankful the doctor on, that day, decided to TREAT me.

  • A good friend of mine died of a heart attack. He was 33 at the time. He went to the ER with chest pains. They never gave him an EKG assuming he was too young to have heart problems. They told him it was probably a gastric attack. FYI, he went back to the ER an hour later in even more distress. They sent him away again. We called the ambulance when he collapsed. Sometimes doctors assume things and it kills people.

  • Had to go through this with my mom dying 3 years ago, when I was 23. Never thought I’d have those conversations that young and I’m sorry for anyone else who does. It’s the shitty reality of cancer and how horrible it is.

  • At age 19yrs old, I experienced my first Iliac Artery Aneurysm. 3 Different hospitals turned me away without doing any testing despite me having hereditary Vascular Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. I bled internally for 4 days at home until my mother reached out to my Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon at Children’s Mercy and he immediately did CT with Contrast and literally saved my life (for the 2nd time). Those hospitals only turned me away because of my age and because I had THC in my system so they probably assumed I was seeking pain medicine. They gave me so much Morphine I began vomiting. STOP looking at a patient’s age and deciding a more critical diagnosis can’t be possible! Thanks Dr. Mike! Beeewoooop!

  • Guys who are watching this if you have a serious concern and you get a bad feeling or your doctor brushes it off go get a second opinion.

  • I went to the doctor because I couldn’t breath, it was getting really bad. They said it was just anxiety and told me to just calm down. I asked for an x ray and it turned out to be pneumonia.

  • In my opinion if a person is willing to PAY to fake their illness them frankly they’re in the right place anyways. They either have a mental health problem that needs to be seen to or they’re in a really dark place in their life. Maybe the kindness and care of a doctor and nurse is the most love and nurturing that they’ve had in their life in a very long time. That is not something to be scoffed at.

    Although it’s true I don’t trust the medical community anymore because of people like this. I had a nurse laugh in my face because she thought the nature of my sexual abuse was really funny. I got up and left the ER with blood still dripping from my body. Why stay and be abused again?

  • My husband left work in an ambulance with stroke symtpoms and got sent home from ER with some info about anxiety attacks. My husband, who HAS anxiety attacks, knew that wasnt what it was.

    It was serotonin syndrome.:) He was very lucky to have had a friend in the medical field who went with him when he went to a different hospital.

  • It’s not even IF she was being a bully about it, it’s the fact that I’ve been to a hospital and had my issues dismissed by nurses. It isn’t funny, it encourages that attitude!

  • I’m so glad it all worked out ok… I also have Ulcerative Colitis. I was on Remicade several years ago but insurance changed and I had to switch to Humira which made my whole body hurt ALL THE TIME. I’m getting ready to start Entivio fingers crossed!

  • I can not tell you how my Drs have had the reaction Mursimedical had in her video regarding my chronic migraines, seizures (because they are non epileptic seizures), and chronic pain. It has actually caused me to develop Agoraphobia surrounding going to the Drs office and ER/Urgent Care. I can not tell you how many times I have thought I was “crazy” because I was told it was all in my head. It wasn’t until I came across a specialist who told me, “Of course it is all in your head. You are suffering from Chronic Hemaplegic Migraines, Intractable Migraines, as well as Chronic Daily Headaches. These are neurological conditions, which affect your brain, that is located in your head.” This made me cry.

  • the spine meme is unfair because ‘55%’ of the human population will not see the individual letters, we just see the last and first letter and will not read the middle letter.

  • Hi doctor, U r very handsome. I have a query to know that if someone sits unconsciously on someone’s tummy who was relaxing,how it feels?

  • Hey ummm I want to thank you in participating in mr.padillas video I was his student your a real kind bud by participating in my teachers video ��

  • Here’s a personal story towards the second video of the girl being nonchalant about the 24 year old showing signs of a heart attack. It was last year, I was 24 year old. I was in the gym working out like I always do literally a month before I was supposed to go off to the police academy. Right after my workout I vomited and started having chest pain with a numb but tingling sensation down my left arm. I eventually went into the ER and they determined I was having a heart attack. I am a young healthy active adult with no prior drug use and I was having a heart attack. Doctors couldn’t determine what it was. Instantly They put a balloon in me to help open my artery. All the tests and scans and it wasn’t until I was transferred from the ER to a bigger hospital where it took 3 cardiologist to finally diagnose me the day after with Kawasaki disease. Basically a heart disease that a select few are born with. From what the cardiologist told me it is so rare that I was only their second case and my regular doctor told me the same thing and he’s at least 50-60. It had nothing to do with my life decisions. I was born with it and showed no symptoms until the heart attack. Honestly seeing her tic tok kind of irritated me. Smh

  • Healthcare professionals should NOT be on social media making fun of patients! As healthcare professionals, we all know we make our jokes behind the scenes and use black humor to survive. But absolutely shouldn’t do this to the public. A lot of our patients have issues with trust as it is, this just ensures they won’t seek help when they truly need it. Anyone doing this and/or breaking HIPAA, should have their license/certification suspended.

  • I just lost my momma two nights ago she was 43. I pray for healing and I pray for strength for everybody and anybody who sees this comment or anybody going through what I’m going through

    I was watching this video when that expectation meme showed up. My friend Yuki saw it than said “you know once I went to the UK and to a boba shop and there was a handsome guy making the boba, even I thought he was handsome. Let me tell you…there was a whole line of girls just to se his face” and I was like (.)

  • TRUE LIFE STORY

    Hi My name is “Jennifer ” I was married for years. until things started getting ugly and we had fights and arguments almost every time… it got worse at a point that he filed for divorce… I tried my best to make him change his mind & stay with me. he moved out of the house and still went ahead to file for divorce… I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster who eventually helped me out… I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly cause I was desperate and left with no choice… This great baba mukuru did special prayers and other things he had to do… Within 2days my husband called me and was sorry for all the emotional trauma he had cost me, he moved back to the house and we continue to live happily. what a wonderful miracle baba mukuru and the faith I had in him did for me and my family. I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news… I strongly believe someone out there need’s his help. so make extra effort to save your marriage/relationship if it’s truly worth it. contact him Via email on ([email protected]).

  • im not scared to die i just wana live long enough to see what ill miss. im currently 15 years old, i wana find love have true friends and see the world.

  • Never afraid of dying, people could shoot me tomorrow and i couldn’t care less, what i afraid is my love one who will one day knock on the death’s door. I think i will never be ready for that.

  • When my little sister was born she was 6 pounds and really small. My whole family was so happy and was crying of joy. My stated and I are 13 years apart. Which should be more important as my mothers age is older then other patients. When my stater was Born the nurses and doctors told my mom to breastfeed my sister and that it was better and refused to give her a formula milk. My sister didn’t eat well for 2 days. My parents don’t speak good English. When u arrived I was so upset and started crying and begging them to give her some formula milk. When we got the bottle it only have 2 oz. I was so upset because the hospital staffs told us not to bring in any food or the formula for my sister. I wasn’t aware I could just go and buy it. With the 2 oz my sister slept for he hope day. I was so disappointed in the staff. It felt like they did t even care. My sister is the best thing to happen and I now take her to the best doctors and as far away from that hospital as possible. How my sister was born is a funny story though as she was born on july5 th.

  • What if what he found online was actually correct? I asked about what I found online based on my symptoms but the docs did not acknowledge it…I was eventually diagnosed with exactly my online finding almost 9 months later. We as patients have good intuition about our bodies and it shouldn’t be so easily dismissed.

  • You are such an amazing little person, so brave, so much energy, so much character. With all my heart I would like to thank your parents for making effort in supporting all that you do and seeing how special you are. I love hearing your sweet little voice, you are the coolest ever! Prayers and love to you and your families always my sweet child.

  • Don’t know if anyone said this yet, but “The mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell” was a running joke. Basically, it’s a joke, that would probably suit non doctors better, about how we forgot everything else from high-school except the fact that the “Mitochondria is the power house of the Cell.” So, it’s funny for people who didn’t study up further on it after high-school. Haha

  • Doctor Mike in this video: yeah you could catch me in the bed for like 15 minutes at a time
