Pain med and see MD: We do not have enough information and can not help you without examination.

You can take over the counter pain meds and make an appointment with your doctor. You need an exam and may need X-rays / MRI imaging to find out the cause and appropriate rx ...Read more

Why are some people much more emotional or empathetic than others? Are there biological reasons, or is it more often a learned behavior?
Great question: "emotional" is very different from "empathetic." highly emotional people may have both a biological predisposition to be highly arousable and exposure to trauma like events that sensitize the hpa axis (hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal). Empathy is an essential trait that makes us human, which is very likely learned from parents. Psychopaths have little or no empathy & most had abusive childhoods! ...Read more

If my total cholest is 284 with HDL 100.9 and LDL 177, trig 79, ratio 2.81. What is more important the levels or the ratio? What the ratio means?
Individual Values: Cardiovascular (cvd) risk is related to the number of LDL particles (ldl-p) and the number of HDL particles (hdl-p). When ldl-p is high or hdl-p is low cvd risk is elevated. Ratios report an LDL number divided by hdl. However, cvd risk can vary by 40% a the same ratio value.
