Pulling back on the needle to check for air bubbles a white discharge fills the syringe. Could this be a sterial abscess? No symptoms, just sore leg.

More info: What are you using a needle on your leg (or whatever you're pulling back on) for? Although I definitely need more information to give you the best advice, I would advise that any time you pull back on a needle from somewhere on/in your body and you get a white return, I can't help but think it's a sign of infection. You may want to give your doctor a call.

When I pass gas I also pass air bubbles through my vagina a lot of the times. Is this normal?

See an OBGYN: This might be what is called a recto-vaginal fistula. It means an opening exists between your anal and vaginal canals. This will cause stool and gas to seep out of your vagina and likewise blood and vaginal discharge to seep from your anus. It may just heal, but you really need to see an obgyn so they can do a thorough rectal and vaginal exam to determine what the problem is. Be well.

Hi Dr. My 8 week old makes a clicking sound when bottle feeding, seems to lose suction and I think I can hear lots of air bubbles going down?

Hi Dr. My 8 week old makes a clicking sound when bottle feeding, seems to lose suction and I think I can hear lots of air bubbles going down?

Sucking problem: You need to check the size of the hole in the nipple & see how fast it is dripping down the formula. Try a nipple with smaller hole & see if it makes a difference, if she is also breast fed does she make the same sound? If yes then you need to take her to her pediatrician or even ENT to make sure that her nose, throat & larynx are ok. Good luck & enjoy your bundle of joy.

I am experiencing Tightness in chest (time frame: gradual onset) (severity: mild) The following also describes me:. ..it feels as if there is air trapped in the center of my chest and it tingles every so often as if there's air bubbles?

See your doctor.: From your description, there could be many causes of your chest tightness. Because heart disease happens to be one of those possibilities, you need to be seen ASAP by either your doctor or in an emergency room, to be sure that you were not having angina. If heart disease turns out not to be present, your doctor can help you sort out what the true cause is. Do not delay. Go now.

Is it normal to have occasional air bubbles in your vagina?

Is it normal to have occasional air bubbles in your vagina?

Absolutely, yes: Vaginal 'farts" are very common as air gets trapped or sucked into the vagina during strenuous exercise, movement, or intercourse. It can be "embarrassing" as you don't always realize its' "coming out" when it does, but it is an expellation that may be noisy, but odorless. (smile)
