Re-visit the doctor: Hello. You may have some chest soreness due to the increased work of breathing that you experienced during your asthma episode. The sore throat and head pain are not typical following asthma exacerbations. If acetaminophen or ibuprofen have not helped the pain, you should see your doctor. You may have a throat infection that could require antibiotics.

A 34-year-old member asked:

How does nitroglycerin work to relieve chest pain?

Dr. Mark Milunski
Cardiology 37 years experience
Nitroglycerin: Nitroglycerin relieves cardiac related chest pain by dilating the coronary arteries. These are the arteries that supply blood to the heart. Improving blood flow to heart muscle will relieve the discomfort caused by a partial blockage of the blood vessel with plaque.

I just had a sonogram at 6 weeks 2 days pregnant and the tech said I had a corpus luteum cyst on my ovary. What is this? Is it normal? Especially, if I have had a miscarriage (due to a partial molar pregnancy) and one healthy baby.?

Normal: The corpus luteum is the cyst in the ovary where ovulation occurred. It is an important source of hormonal support to the early pregnancy. This is a normal, healthy finding.

I have a herniated disc at t3-t4 from an accident burning pain in chest and muscle pain is this bad?

Dr. Claude Parola

Maybe: The burning pain in your chest is most likely due to the disc herniation touching/compressing the nerves that go to the area of your chest where you feel the pain. If the hernia gets bigger it can squeeze on that nerve further, and can cause permanent damage to this nerve, sometimes decompressing the nerve through surgery may help but not always, medications such as gabapentin, Cymbalta (duloxetine) may help.

What is severe headaches cold feet chills tremors then vomiting light headed sweating neck pain?

Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Can be a big problem: Severe headaches, accompanied by neck pain, could be a type of meningitis (serious infection around the spinal cord and/or brain), although the real flu can cause similar symptoms. Cold feet, chills, and tremors occur when fever is rising; sweating happens when fever is dropping. Light-headedness and vomiting make it all more worrisome. A trip to the doctor is needed to evaluate these symptoms.

Cold sensitivity: There are several possibilities, however being more sensitive to the cold temperatures and swelling in the neck suggests the possibility of a thyroid illness causing a condition of low thyroid production called hypothyroidism with an enlargement of the thyroid called goiter. It is imperative that you obtain medical consultation and examination to determine the true cause of your problems.
