Dr. Sean Ray
12 years experience male
Hello, all. My name is Sean Ray, and I'm an emergency physician in North Carolina. I certified in emergency medicine by the American Board of Emergency Medicine and have been practicing emergency medicine full-time since 2009. I currently practice in one of the busiest emergency departments in the country, though I've worked in smaller community hospitals and military facilities as well. I spent over 6 years as a physician on active duty with the U.S. Army, which included a tour in Afghanistan. Prior to my current job, I was stationed in Honolulu, HI, where I worked at both Tripler Army Medical Center and The Queen's Medical Center. I've seen too many patients waste their time and money on costly trips to the ED for minor urgent matters. By joining HealtTap, I hope to help as many people as possible take care of themselves without ever having to leave their home.

A 17-year-old female asked:
A female asked:
Very worrying: You don't provide a time course for these symptoms, so I'm forced to believe they're relatively rapid in onset. Shortness of breath with facial swelling is cause for immediate evaluation in an emergency department. I recommend you seek care there now. If these symptoms have been present for days or longer, additional information may be helpful.
A 23-year-old male asked:
It varies: There are different "recipes" for GI cocktails, though they typically include an antacid (such as Maalox), viscous lidocaine (to numb the GI tract), and an antispasmodic agent to relieve stomach cramps. To know the exact ingredients in yours, you'd have to ask your doctor.
