About an hour ago I started to get a pinching and prickly feeling in my chest, mainly on the right side, could this be something wrong with my heart?

About an hour ago I started to get a pinching and prickly feeling in my chest, mainly on the right side, could this be something wrong with my heart?

Maybe: it is hard to say what your symptoms are from given a short description and not knowing your age -- so the most honest answer is maybe. In general terms, however, heart related pain is often described as pressure rather than prickly, and often occurs in the setting of exertion. Having said all that, we always take chest related symptoms seriously; I would suggest getting it checked out. ...Read more

2ultrasounds,blood work,lung ct,chest xray=no blood clot. Calf has aching pain on&off. Toes have pins&needles feeling. Upperback pain. Missed DVT?

Not likely: the most common reason why someone would have aching in the calves is musculoskeletal. Try doing calf stretching and hamstring stretching. See an Osteopath or try looking at your activity level. With the work up you have had, I would not be fixated on a blood clot without some other compelling reason. ...Read more

Will i still have feeling in my nipples after a breast reduction? My doctor told me he would relocate my nipple when he performs my breast reduction. Does this mean i will have reduced feeling in my nipple? Will I have any feeling in it at all? .

Will i still have feeling in my nipples after a breast reduction? My doctor told me he would relocate my nipple when he performs my breast reduction. Does this mean i will have reduced feeling in my nipple? Will I have any feeling in it at all?

.

Breast : Breast reduction surgery involves removal of excessive breast tissue and skin, and reshaping of the remaining breast tissue to a cosmetically appealing shape, size, and position. The typical breast reduction reduces the diameter of the areola but leaves your nipple and areola still attached to the underlying breast tissue, so that the nipple continues to receive its blood flow and sensation through your normal breast tissue. The nipple will be in a higher, more appealing position on the breast as the breast tissue is lifted and reshaped. Following a typical breast reduction, approximately 15-20% of women will experience some reduction in nipple sensation as a result of the surgery. The remaining 80-85% of women will experience normal or even increased nipple sensation.

In women who have extraordinarily large and long breasts, there is an increased risk that their nipples will not maintain good blood flow using the standard breast reduction techniques. For these women, a free nipple graft may be the best option. This technique actually removes the nipple and replaces it in an appropriate position on the reshaped, repositioned breast. When a free nipple graft is performed, the sensation to the nipple is always either reduced or lost. Occasionally, some sensation may return over time as the nerves grow into the graft. The free nipple graft technique will eliminate your ability to breast feed in the future, as it divides the ducts that bring milk to the nipple.

Discuss with your board certified plastic surgeon which technique he/she feels is most appropriate for you.

All the best,
dr. Skourtis. ...Read more

All my life my left nipple very very rarely gets erect also there is hardly any feeling there should I be worried?

Sensation: Since this is a life long issue, it may be that you have an anatomic variation in your nervous system which impacts the sensory response of that nipple. It is reasonable to see your doctor about this, though the odds of the problem being something you need to worry about are low. In your age group, and with the long history of the problem, the chance of cancer or the like is incredibly low. ...Read more
