Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hi. My name isXXXXX completed an Internal medicine internship in NYC and have two decades of clinical experience. How can I assist you today?
One of the risks of being a medical student is that you tend to try to diagnose yourself and worry that you have all of the horrible things you are learning about. We have all gone through this.....
The best thing you can do is just not worry about this....you are fine.
If you still think you need the billion dollar workup, then you should walk over to the internal medicine department and grab one of the Attending physicians, perhaps even the Chairman of Internal Medicine, for a "hallway consult".
Does this make sense to you?
I hope this information was helpful for you. But I do work for tips so I want to make sure you are happy with me before rating me. If you have another question on this or a related issue feel free to fire away. You may also receive an email survey after our chat, if you don’t feel that I have earned a “10” rating in all areas, please let me know what I can do to meet your expectations. Thanks in advance, Dr. Rick MD FACS
Best of luck on your next 6+ years of training. Being a doctor is a wonderful privilege.
It is quite possible I'm just fine. The only worry I have is that it's hard to make up the feeling of the exercise intolerance I've had for years. I might be wrong, but when I exercise I get that thigh weakness, but also the point where I feel sick (light headed, nausea, feeling "off"). It even come from a brisk walk after about 15 minutes (but not to same degree).
