We’ve got another juicy episode of responding to your medical comments! Today we talk about how to get taller or maximize your height, whether you should come out with your sexuality to your doctor, what role the frequency of your drinking plays into your ability to get drunk, the truth about chicken pox, cracking your knuckles/neck/back, elder care, radiology, draining your lungs, allergies, and so much more. Got a question you’d like me to answer? Drop it down below and I’ll try to get to it in my next Responding To Comments videos!

Hey Dr. Mike I've got a question - A lot of times my right nostril is blocked. BUT, let's say one hour later, the left nostril gets blocked and the right nostril opens. Why does that happen? Thank you & I love your videos (keep up the guuud work!!!) 🌻

I haven't seen every video you've ever posted, but in those I've seen I haven't seen the topic of chiropractic medicine. As a layman, it seems very confusing, with different DCs making different statements. On a holistic level, I can understand how neural alignment issues can cause other body issues. But the wide array of chiropractic health channels on ROkey could leave one very confused. Do you have anything to say about this?

Hey Mike. Ive had chronic pain of 12 years+. The only option left to me as a treatment is prescribed exercise. I do mindfulness based relaxation and meditation, walk, do push ups, and jumping jacks every day. And only stop when pain gets too bad, but my doctor says I need to increase the workload. How could I naturally combat the pain I have to push through the exercises? Im diagnosed with scoliosis and fibromyalgia. I trust my doctor, but the treatment sort of feels like Im being prescribed an oxymoron to me.

Hi doctor mike! I've got a question. Why do I get random bruises on my body, like on my thighs, calfs, and arms? Pretty sure I didn't knock them into something or anything like that. They just showed up out of nowhere. Is it dangerous?

Here I am, watching Dr. Mike say he feeds of patient interaction and I wish I can find a doctor like you over here. I had a "telephone consult" and the doctor barely let me speak, it lasted a minute and half and she spent it trying to hang up as soon as possible. I'm heartbroken by the experience because I'm a bit worried about new things I've been experiencing and I could even talk

I have a question. What are your thoughts on the wide availability of monitoring your health from wearables or handheld devices? I am currently thinking about my Apple Watch which has the ability to give me an ECG, measure O2 saturation, measure my heart rate, tell me if my environment is too loud, and counts down from 20 when I was my hands. Pros and cons?

As someone with severe anxiety and hypochondria, now diagnosed with depression, everything to me is cancer. When I was 18 I had severe strep throat and the lymph node still hasn’t gone away. It hasn’t grown in the last 14 years, but doctors have told me if it was dangerous, it would be growing. I have a high heart rate, likely due to anxiety. 100-120 average when I’m not sleeping. My question for you is ... how the hell do I calm down, and stop thinking I’m dying ... it’s ironically slowly killing me. And yes, my diet consists of nicotine and caffeine.

I actually lost some height kinda randomly (occurred in my late 20s)... I'm 1.5" shorter than I used to be, and I doubt that all of that distance is from my C6/C7 compression. (That does remind me though... I haven't used my traction device yet today, and my neck's getting pretty stiff... I should go do that now...)

The problem with cell phones for the elderly is that they don't carry them with them the way us younger folks do. I am a caregiver in a senior living facility and all of them have cell phones, but they leave them on the charger unless they go out, so I think having a life alert necklace or bracelet is best in case of a fall in their apartment.

Dr. Mike, is it possible for a young person to have a stroke? I found out I have Chron's disease last year but haven't been able to get any sort of treatment because of hospital lotations due to the virus. My health has been steadily declining for the past 8 months and for the past month, I've been experiencing a lot of pressure on my arms, eyes and the sides of my face. The focus of my vision shifts many timees a day, I can't stop shaking, my hands & feet are always cold and get dormant easily, and I'm constantly afraid something will pop in my head. I'm 23, 5'4" and curently 88 pounds (which I know is low, but seems to be related to the Chron's side effects). Is it possible I've had/ will have a minor stroke?

Question as a pre med aspiring to be a doctor: If you were asked why you wanted to become a physician specifically, as opposed to a nurse or physical therapist or any other profession that treats patients, how would you respond? In other words, what are some of the things that doctors do that differentiate them from other healthcare workers? During one of my BS/MD interviews, I was asked this question because a lot of my answers to Why Medicine could have applied to many different healthcare fields as opposed to just medicine.

How would someone go about increasing pain tolerance? My pain tolerance is super low and sometimes something as simple as lightly hitting my hand against a doorknob will give me some nausea and vertigo even resulting in vomiting. Other times I will not even feel much pain at all when I would expect it, IE: Today I stubbed my toe on a rock pathway and in the process of balancing myself out, stubbed my OTHER toe. I was holding hot (cooled slightly below boiling) tea on my hand and I noticed afterwards that my tongue was sore like I had bitten it. The only thing I experienced was extremely mild pain in my tongue and right toe after that. What is with the hugely different responses?
