We are back at it responding to your comments and questions via this monthly video series. I love reading and responding to your comments and as you can tell I'll jump into the comments section with a reply or a heart quite often. If one of the questions I answered was not detailed enough or you want more info on the subject please let me know so that I can make a dedicated video giving you all of the info!
A few favorite topics from this video are:
1) Swallowing Gum
2) My patients ticklish?
3) Benadryl for Sleep
4) Libido
5) Headphone pain
6) Hats and Balding
7) Nightshifts and Diet
8) Sweaty Palms
Doctors are traditionally unreachable and I want to change that. So hop into this video’s and any other of my video’s comment section and ask dr mike! I want to see your username pop up on my next responding to comments video.
If you have an idea of something you want me to cover in-depth, please let me know because I take your requests seriously. We will be back with more Medical Drama Review Series in a couple of weeks so please submit more names of shows/episodes you'd like for me to watch. Love you all!

  • A lot of questions seem to be from people trying NOT to get treated, probably because they don't have health insurance and no money to pay for health services... Your country does not respect universal rights because there is no universal health care. This is barbaric.

  • Dr Mike could you please talk about vegan diet? What are your thoughts about it from a “medical perspective” as a nutrition not environmental or animal saving perspective. Today it is so hard to know what’s true or not, and which information is supported by beneficial companies. Therefore your thoughts as a doctor would be appreciated.

  • Ok I know this was 10 months ago God I hope you see this, I've been taking 10mgs of melatonin and 4 of the otc sleep aid pills along with my alprazolam...but it's still so hard to fall asleep and stay asleep. I have a background of anxiety and panic attacks...from those I know I'm not having any attacks nightly but nothing really works. I don't want to keep taking melatonin and sleep aids along with my prescriptions but I can't seem to get this across to my doctor. Also, I've been on alprazolam for over 15 years and he literally dropped me 30 pills one month..cold. Obviously I was god awful sick. Went back and he only understood 20% and said ok we'll go up to 75???? How do I explain that it's physically hurting me without acting like I'm just drug seeking?

  • Doctor, I have a question related with backbone disorientation (I think😂). So, my back bone is a bit tilted (not straight), hence my waists might seem a bit unbalanced right and left. It's not that obvious, but it is when i'm not wearing a shirt or if I wear really tight clothes. I also realized that I have the tendency of unconsciously tilting my body to the left while sitting down (when i'm not sitting up straight). What should I do to make my back bone straight again?

  • Dr.Mike, the whole reason that the 7 years gum stereotype came along was because someone was doing a bubble blowing contest and swallowed a big hunk of it, they took some weird medication to presumably get rid of the gum and it actually made it stick to the stomach inside. I was really hoping you could also answer this question: should I be worrying about my grades if I want to get into med school. I am in grade six.

  • Hi Mike, I had a hysterectomy at the beginning of the year. Because I kept my ovaries and Fallopian tubes, my gyn said I would not be affected by hormonal effects. But since I’ve had the surgery I feel my hormone balance is a huge mess. It’s definitely different than before, for example I don’t sleep well because I feel like I‘m burning inside, my cheeks are always red and hot, no libido any more (not because of the surgery, all went well, no problems after that), loss of hair, moody, sweating at night etc. My doc says it can’t be because I don’t need to take hormones. So I would love to hear a second opinion. Is she right and I have to check another doc to rule out other illnesses or is there a small possibility it IS caused by the hysterectomy?
