Ok not really much on my mind, was just really testing to see if my membership had been reinstated by posting a question.. my hr has come down a bit more today. Lying down it's now coming down to 48

Looks like you're reinstated

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Lol yes .. is my hr ok to drop that low now even though it hasn't over the past couple of days?

No problem with that

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Ok

Anything more?

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
it's not a problem is it? For a few days it's been elevated and now it's dropped, won't go to low and stop while I'm sleeping?

Of course not

Hello doc .. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-zOSFQia7g

You read way to much into things

What he meant was were you having to pant like you'd just run a sprint when you were at rest--that's the kind of shortness of breath we're looking for

And he was listening to your carotids to see if there were any bruits--whooshing sounds that might indicate a plaque

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I know I question things too much.. he didn't listen to the carotids.. he put his finger on each side and said he's feeling the pressure there

You can also feel bruits besides listening for them

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Ok .. so the concern about breathlessness is not a concern .. being out of breath a little during running is ok?

You'd be very weird if you weren't a little short of breath after running

Hi doc I have noticed a horizontal slightly raised ridge across my big toe on my left foot.. anything worrying?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Toe

Nothing to worry about--just a blip in the nail growth plate that cause the ridge

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
A raised one? I was reading that they are dipped ridges that are caused by a blip? Same kinda thing?

Same thing

Even so look after yourself ... anyway another question which I was not going to ask because it's just too bizarre .. earlier today my little boy shot me in the forehead with a nerf gun bullet, it's sponge with a hard plastic tip , hit me hard .. obviously no way possible to cause damage of any sort?

Earlier this morning when I got up I felt a pain in my forehead .. I really thought something was about to pop .. I took some painkillers and lay down for about an hour.. after that I was fine for the rest of the day, just a headache?

Just a simple headache

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Ok one more thing before I sleep .. earlier tonight I was out then when I got home I noticed a bit of a twitch feeling in my chest and thought it was my heart .. shall we do an ecg or no need?

You wouldn't have brought it up if you didn't want me to look so go ahead

It's been 24 hours or just slightly over .. I'm in the clear?

You always were

I've been worried most of the day about that toy gun incident .. definately wouldn't have done any harm? I've been feeling lightheaded but that might be because I'm worrying? I'm at the gym now

Drop the worry

You've had head bangs like that before and you were fine

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I know but this was different .. got shot in the forehead with it .. it's been 36 hours.. no bleed for sure?

Absolutely sure--no bleed

Lightheaded tired eyes nothing to do with it?

Nope

Carry on at the gym ? Maybe it'll shift this feeling

The detached lightheadedness is purely your anxiety

Like I've said before a bleed produces a severe headache that doesn't let up

So that strike to your forehead didn't cause any damage

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
my symptoms don't fit in with that of a bleed? Also it wouldn't start 36 hours later ? And a plastic tipped bullet is not hard enough to cause damage? The forehead area is strong bone?

No

No

No it isn't

Yes

My systolic isn't usually that low , the second reading I did was 109/79.. still definately no bleed?

That BP is fine and as we've discussed before a bleed spikes blood pressure--it doesn't lower it

Oh yes u have mentioned that before

Get off the bleed merry go round

At this point it isn't any longer a need to understand any of this--you already know all you need to know

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!!
