I noticed when I slept on my back i was in a little discomfort the last few nights. I went to take a look in mirror this morning at my buttomx and noticed a pimple there...
not that painful at all and have not applied anything...was thinking about going to see my pcp this week and have him pop it.
Is the pimple a sign of anything serious?
Ok. You said the pimple is usually not serious...in what cases could it be serious?
Ok, I am a little frightened is all. I had one that felt like this on my back several months back too.
The pimple has the white dot like thing on top of it...i always forget what is that called? And more importantly what does that mean when that is there?
I see..why would zits/pimples form on the buttox area? typically you see on face and sometime back
you there Doc?
I took a nap around 4:30pm or so and was on and off snoozing.I felt like my heart or pulse was beating fast though and i couldn't sleep much and when I did get up around 6:30pm or so felt nausea which I still kind of feel and it is now 10:19pm. Also sort of had feeling like i wanted to vomit but the feeling was light and i didn't.
What could be wrong with me?
no to all of the questions. I do have heartburn though. I don't know howtocheck my heart rate.
I don't need to go to the ER though right?
I am only 32but worry about dieing in my sleep for some odd reason. Is that strange?
Dr.Robert are you online?
Hi i went running today on a treadmill for the first time in months. For last 4 to 5 hours though I have a minor headache.This first started shortly after the running.

Are you online Doc?
ok here goes...last night i was at a wedding in wine country and I probably had way too much to drink...(prob 15 drinks throughout course of day and evening).
I drove back home today and immediately went to sleep. I did not eat anything all day until 3pm PST. As I was trying to sleep before i woke up and ate, i felt as if though my body was going limp and then my eyes shut for a few second and it felt like i summoned myself to regain consciousness. I felt I had died and woken up. Did I suffer a seizure or stroke. Should I go see an ER? After eating and having some fluids I felt better.
A doc I talked ot a few hours ago said "you may have Hypnagogic Sleep Paralysis. Nothing serious--just a little off setting of REM sleep and often seen after drinking as much as you did Raul. Not a stroke or a seizure and nothing to worry about except you really need to moderate your drinking"
Do you agree with the doctor's diagnosis of Hypnagogic Sleep Paralysis? If so, why or why not?
Do you also lose consciousness briefly during sleep paralysis?
