Torn frenulum?? He won't talk to a doctor about it, happened a week ago and is still sensitive. Also sink tag now present

Torn frenulum?? He won't talk to a doctor about it, happened a week ago and is still sensitive. Also sink tag now present

Frenulum: Lip, tongue? There's not much to do about it. As long as it's not getting infected. It will take a while to heal. If the pain persists, insist on having it looked at. If the skin tag is at the same location; it may be the remnant of the frenulum. ...Read more

I had lunch @ 11 & now 4pm glucose is 94. Is it safe for a diabetic? Do i need to talk to doc?

I had lunch @ 11 & now 4pm glucose is 94. Is it safe for a diabetic?  Do i need to talk to doc?

Safe: I will assume that you're on dm medicine. Your trough glucose readings (immediately prior to meals) should be approximately 100, + or - 20. Interval between meals should be about 4-5 hours. The only instance that this reading of 91 is a problem would be if your supper meal is not routinely served until 6pm or so. Then there might be enough time for the reading to dip below 70, which is too low. ...Read more

Some men : Are reluctant to get the medical checkups they need. Your boyfriend may have a simple hernia that can be surgically repaired, or worse. It sounds like you've heard him complain on the one hand, but refuse to take the next step (see a doctor) on the other. If you dislike being in this situation, you can let him know how you feel. But it's ultimately his body, and his choice to allow an exam or not. ...Read more

Can i speak to a family doctor about another family members health issue? I have a grandparent that goes to the same doctor as i do.  She has a history of alcohol addiction and has recently been percribed sleeping medication.  She now takes her sleeping m

Not without her : Permission. Without the permission of the patient, unless the patient lacks capacity and you are the next of lin or poa, we can't talk about confidential health information with others. Of course, it never stops family members from volunteering info. It's a 1-sided conversation. Just know that we can't talk to you without permission. It's a violation of the hipaa law. Take care. ...Read more

Why do a breast ultrasound after a mammogram? Does it mean there’s something abnormal in my breast, or was the mammogram just not clear? My doctor won’t talk to me until after the ultrasound, but i’m worried now.

Possible hyperadrenergic pots...i need an official diagnosis and have a very unhelpful doctor. any doctors out there who can diagnose this via chat?

Possible hyperadrenergic pots...i need an official diagnosis and have a very  unhelpful doctor. any doctors out there who can diagnose this via chat?

Not quite the reason: Use HealthTap Prime to talk to a doctor who can guide u to a diagnosis. Unfortunately, the diagnosis is NOT made just via chat. Hyperadrenergic POTS requires a blood norepinephrine test (during & after symptoms)- which a HealthTap Prime doctor can order for u. Also, the diagnosis of POTS has to be confirmed by tilt table testing (TTT) or some other means. An HT Prime doc can arrange this for u. GL ...Read more

Ask online doctor fmy dad has slight pain in shoulder and he is unable to take his left hand up. Theres a slight trembling in his left hand whree chat?

See a Physician: It is impossible to determine the cause without examining the patient. But symptoms of pain in the shoulder and pain with lifting the arm up are typical for rotator cuff tendinitis. This is treated well with physical therapy and possibly a steroid injection. But i would suggest prompt evaluation by a physiatrist or orthopedist to determine the true cause of the pain. ...Read more

I'm having a severe anxiety attack because I'm having on and off pain in my left testicle and I keep thinking I have testicular torsion. I spoke to a doctor on here using the live chat thing but all he said was see a urologist, nothing else.

Testicular pain: A testicular torsion is where the blood supply is cut off from them being twisted closed. This is considered urological emergency. This can be intermittent as other doctors have told you. You must not assume that if this is a torsion that it will always untwist.. As the pain can be other than torsion, it it's best to go to an urgent care T this time for examination. If torsion not a difficult fix. ...Read more

I got a lot of pain in my throat, doctor lok at it and say just inflammation, could inflammation cause all that pain and even now i get hurts wen i talk?

Yes : Seemingly minor bugs can cause tremendous throat inflammation and pain. Nsaids (e.g. Motirn 800 mg) take away this pain by at least 50%. If this is going on for more than a a few weeks, it needs further evaluation. ...Read more
