Doctor can examine: Such symptoms may be due to hand-foot-mouth disease, a common childhood viral infection causing fever, blister-like spots in the mouth, and skin rashes (especially palms and soles). Hand-foot-mouth disease is not the foot-and-mouth (or hoof-and-mouth) disease of cattle, sheep, and pigs. The two diseases are not related. Humans don't get the animal disease, and animals don't get the human disease.

How does nitroglycerin work to relieve chest pain?

Dr. Mark Milunski

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.

Yes: I assume you are talking of disc surgery, which the nerve involved. We have to consider two things. How chronic the painwas? How much the nerve injury is? It may take days? Few weeks? It may have residual pain for long time?

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.

A 50-year-old member asked:

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

Dr. Claude Parola
Internal Medicine 40 years experience
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.
