Hi--have you seen a doctor about this? Pressure as in pain?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
No I haven't. It's not painful just strange numbness
Health Professional: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 3 years ago
when it happens, any vision changes?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
No sometimes my vision feels more blurry than usual, smudged is the only way I can describe it
Health Professional: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 3 years ago

OK. This sounds like what's called variant migraine disorder--the aura of a migraine without the severe headache. It can be treated with propranolol if bothersome so you need to see a doctor about this for an exam

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!

*is experiencing severe chest pain that comes and goes for moments at a time, maybe a minute or 30secs at a time, and he describes it as feeling like his chest is on fire while he inhales, but feels cold as he exhales. He also has difficulty breathing while his chest is in pain, and as soon as the pain subsides and breathing becomes easier, he feels very weak immediately after. He's been feeling this for the past few days; it all began with what we assumed was a panic attack. That was when the pain and difficulty breathing began, only the first time, it was so severe that he momentarily (about 2 or 3 secs) passed out. Was just really looking for some help dealing with symptoms in the desperate hope that a hospital visit isn't necessary. … read more
