Relaxation: First what antidepressant are you on? Would recommend mirtazepine. Also, relaxation exercises are a great non-drug way to help.

Is it ok to get a chest X-ray in the first trimester?

If necessary: Any type of test that exposes you to radiation (x-ray, cat scan) should generally be avoided in pregnancy. If such a test is medically necessary, the abdomen should be shielded with a lead apron to prevent exposure to the baby.

A 28-year-old member asked:
Will I be able to breastfeed if I have had a breast reduction?

No: Most women who have had breast reductions will find it difficult to nurse, and some may find it impossible. There's no harm in trying but it is important to be realistic. The operation relocates the nipple and disrupts the nerves that signal the brain to produce and release breast milk when the baby sucks. Sometimes there is adequate nerve function and with persistence nursing can succeed.

A 30-year-old female asked:
What causes nerve pain in your foot? What stops it and will it cause me to not be able to work?

Neuritis: Nerve pain or numbness or burning is a common symptom associated with entrapment of a peripheral nerve in the foot. It is not debilitating, but very annoying. See your local podiatrist, an injection may be necessary to block the nerve and re-assess the symptoms post-injection.

Chronic wind causing pain in chest and down both arms.?
1 doctor answer • 3 doctors weighed in
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Doctor can evaluate: Is chronic wind the stomach gas & bloating, with a need to burp? Or, is chronic wind the intestinal gas, with a need to pass gas via the anus (fart)? Stomach gas and heartburn (reflux) can cause chest pains. Chest pains can also be spasms in the esophagus or angina pain (as in heart attack pain). The aorta is also in the chest. Pains going down the arms can also be effects on spinal cord nerves.
