Hi--you got me but what is your medical question?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

My headache is showing no signs of going away and I have to work at 1130. What can I do for it

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
Kate?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

ya


 

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
Sorry but there was no history on this page of your previous questions. Did you take anything for it?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

Ive taken 1000 mg of Tylenol


 

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
Sorry for having to say this but what exactly do you want me to say? You shouldn't take NSAIDs so we're limited
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

wow, sorry I even asked you


 

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
Don't get in a dither--I'm just saying that I don't have any other suggestions
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
Need a clearer photo that that
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Marty said hed like to kill himself
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
You have nothing to say about that
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
Just got back on--kill himself why?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
His knee hurts
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
And that makes him want to kill himself?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I guess
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
Well, actually, no I don't have anything to say about that
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Hes just such an overreactor
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
I agree
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I think maybe i get low blood sugar
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
Easy enough to check
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Not if i dont have a glucomator
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
What makes you think it's low?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Because i get light heady sweaty and dizzy
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
Easy enough to check--eat or drink something sugary
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I did and it goes away
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
And did it come back?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Not yet
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
How long had it been since you ate something before it started?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Between 3 and 4 hours
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
And this is the first time for some time that it's happened?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
It happens every once in a while. But lately it seems more
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
You might later on develop gestational diabetes so you need to get a glucose tolerance test
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Shut up! Why you say that
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
Why do you bring up physical things if you don't want to know the facts about them? Sometimes I just don't get you
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I just wanted to know what makes you think i might get gestational diabetes
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
If you're having hypoglycemic episodes now that can later lead to gestational diabetes
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Isnt gestational diabetes high blood sugar?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
Yes but I said you might later develop it if you do have hypoglycemia now. Of course, we're only going by your symptoms so we don't have a diagnosis as yet
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Im so confused
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
Can you tell me what you mean by that instead of just using the one liners?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Im confused about how ifi am hypoglycemic now how it could turn to hyperglycemia
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
Doesn't usually happen but it's a matter of later developing insulin resistance and we don't need to go into all the physiology here
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I was just confused. I didnt say you has to go into the physiology
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
We're starting to chat again--for example there was no need for you to say what you just said
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Im sorry
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
I'm just trying to keep the pages as short as possible
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
We can close now if you want
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
I can spend a little more time if you have anything new to ask about
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I see my therapist tomorriw. And get my flu shot tomorrow
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
That really isn't anything I can respond to
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Can i wait until my therapy appt next week before i start working on things
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
So what would you work on tomorrow?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Nothing. Just tell him the whole pregnancy thing
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
You mean waste the whole session?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
He says its not wasting a session. He said i could say nothing and even thats not wasting a session
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
Well your taking is definitely part of it but he shouldn't just sit there and say nothing. What difference will it make to wait a week to work on things?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

i dont think im ready

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
Well, you may never think you're ready and not start working on it at all but I know you're ready. I'm just concerned that if you say can you put it off for one week that's sort of like an alcoholic saying he'll quit tomorrow. Anyway, let's close this page and you can let me know how it goes with the session tomorrow
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

how do you know that i am ready? is this bruise ever going to go away


Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
I just know but it sounds as though you're trying to back out with saying that. It may take another week for the bruise to disappear. Time to close the page
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

tell me how you know and ive already had the bruise for over 2 weeks

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
Give it another week. There's nothing I can say that's going to convince you about your being ready so I won't try. At least for the sake of your unborn child you need to start the work even if you think you aren't ready. I hope tomorrow you'll be able to tell me you proved me wrong when I say it sounds like you're backing out of this by telling me you did start the work
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

why cant you just tell me how you know im ready

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
You've gone over it with me, although it took a long time to get there, and you already did start with at least one session and then were shut down by your therapist. Let's close the page and let me know how it goes tomorrow
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

your setting me up to disappoint you

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
Not setting you up for anything and I won't be disappointed in you. I wouldn't be disappointed but I would be sad for you and your baby if you delayed this. Enough talk for now--let me know how it goes tomorrow
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

way to bring the unborn baby into this conversation

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
You wanted to be a good mom--you worried whether you could--you already brought the baby into the conversation. Now seriously, either close the page or I opt out for tonight

I need a movie to watch while I fall asleep any suggestions?

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
What are your choices?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I can watch 42, waterfor elephants,green mile, amanda knox: murder in italy or schindlers list
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 10 months ago.
I haven't seen it but I'd suggest 42 or if not The Green Mile. Schinler's List is excellent but it's anything but a happy movie.
