  • It’s really fuckin sad that ppl in America can’t go to the doctor so we resort to YouTube videos and Kickstarter campaigns for our healthcare. Anyone happen to know how to immigrate to Norway or any country that kinda cares about their citizens? Need to see a doctor but can’t afford a couple thousand dollars debt so they can run half ass blood test and tell me “you must have bruised the inside of your ribs.” 6 years now I’ve had this pain. It’s not anxiety because that doesn’t start until I get the chest pains. I don’t think it’s heart related because I’m a pretty active guy and it’s not activated from physical exertion. I smoked for about 10 years and recently quit and I have this haunting fear in the back of my head that I have lung cancer.

  • Here’s my story. Never had a doctor and I’m 58, I had to go to the hospital for a surgery. I weighed 253 lbs/5′ 10 inches tall. They did blood work, come to find out, my A1c was 11.3. No wonder I felt like crap all the time. Any way, I went on an almost no carb diet, I started eating steak,fish,pork,chicken,eggs, and cottage cheese for my dinner for the most part every day and maybe a couple of cookies for dessert. Well, it’s been 3 months as of next week, and I have lost 42 lbs. and my A1c is 4.9 now! I feel/and look so much better. Hopefully I can stop taking the Metformin soon my doctor said. P.S, I stopped drinking beer ever night after I got home from work too. I believe that is helping a whole lot as well. Good luck to everyone that has diabetes, you can control it if you really try…..

  • I don’t have insurance.. I’m only 24 and get random chest pains especially going from laying down to the up right position.. not sure what to do and I know writing this isn’t going to solve anything.. kinda just hoping someone will see it and possibly have the same issue?

  • Chest! All i can say is MOST medical mechanics just follow a flow chart and replace parts…. They are no better or more reliable than the auto/medical industries!!! COMMON SENSE is a RARE quality that is hunted down and exterminated with a VENGEANCE!

  • Does anyone else feel like they are being pinched, its like slight sharp stab on the left side of the chest where the sternum is and also underneath the left breast sometimes.

  • This Dr is a little lacking of knowledge to say the least. How can a cardiologist with his experience not mention that sudden anxiety, nerve pain in the chest region and trigger points in the chest or rib area can cause chest pain that can mimic a cardiac problem? My Dad and myself know for a fact from experience that these things will make you think that there is something wrong with your heart.

  • For the past few months, I’ve had chest pains originating on the left side. On and off, some days it would hurt and other days it wouldn’t. It’s not a terribly sharp pain it’s very uncomfortable and slightly painful. Restlessness, waking up constantly in the middle of the night the last few days drenched in sweat but shivering cold. I also have a tender spot on my chest that hurts when I apply pressure thoughbim not sure if that’s what’s causing it. I feel as if my anxiety is causing me pain as I’m so scared something is wrong with me I feel pain that isn’t there. Or perhaps something’s wrong with me. I don’t have the means to visit a doctor so any advice would help doctor. Thank you

  • J’adorerai partager mon témoignage ici avec vous tous et je vous en prie, transmettre également à vos proches. J’ai reçu un diagnostic d’herpès il y a 7 mois. Le médecin m’a dit qu’il n’y avait pas de remède à cette infection, je n’ai reçu que des antibiotiques plus une crème que j’applique sur la zone touchée, je n’ai pas eu d’amélioration pendant les 4 derniers mois. Il y a donc eu un jour où je suis tombé sur le témoignage d’un ami, alors j’ai contacté cet homme pour obtenir son remède à base de plantes pour cette infection, que j’ai payé et reçu des médicaments après une semaine et quelques jours avec des instructions sur la façon de prendre des médicaments attaqués. Je prends des médicaments pendant 2 semaines avant d’aller à l’hôpital pour un test… Je peux vous montrer maintenant que je suis sans herpès!. Je croyais fermement qu’il existe maintenant un remède à base de plantes pour l’herpès.J’utilise également ce moyen pour vous informer et obtenir le vôtre!.. contactez le Dr Isah Johnson par courrier ou WhatsApp OU par courrier électronique: [email protected] gmail.com: ou via son contact WhatsApp +2349065613964

  • Breast Pain At 20

    For the past 3 to 4 months, I have been having some unusual discomfort/pain in my right breast and elbow that is persistent and doesn’t seem to go away and some days it gets worse as the day progress. All this started about 4 months ago when my breast started to go sore for a day or so but as time went by the discomfort started to last every day but will go way every 4-5 days but always return. I thought it was related to the mensual cycle but was still around after. I have not felt any other symptoms such as any lumps that I can feel, but my breast feels sore with touch at various places but not only in one spot, except the nipple seems to be ever so slightly seem swollen at times and I can feel slight heaviness in the overall breast. The discomfort I feel in my right breast I can feel also around the elbow area and above it, it feels kind of heavy, some tightness and slightly tired when I lift my arm up. I have tried taking some pain killers to ease the discomfort but doesn’t seem to do anything, the only thing that seem to work is when I have a bath or apply some ice or anything cold to the breast Also for the past 1 weeks or so I have started have random cold symptoms that come and go such as sneezing, a blocked nose and the feeling to cough but I don’t need to. I don’t know if these are related to the breast discomfort of to the strange weather here in kolkata or I am getting a cold. sorry for the long post
