The top of my foot hurts so much and I'm waiting for a call from the pediatrist. Are there exercises that help with keeping in shape/relieving pain?

Reason for pain????: First, before you can exercise your foot, you need to find out what is causing the pain. For example, if you have fractured a bone in your foot, you may need to immobilize your foot until the bone heals. You need to see your podiatrist and find out what the cause of the pain is first. Once that is diagnosed, your doctor can recommend exercises that are safe to do and that will be beneficial. ...Read more

Lightheaded, nauseated, pressure, for four weeks, MRI clear, still suffering, put on amitriptyline, seem to have neck and chest issues too. 24/m.

You are experiencing depression / anxiety or reaction to meds. See your mental health provider. ...Read more

Establish with a PCP: Going to ERs for these kind of experiences can be frustrating moments. You need to settle in with a primary care physician who can get to know you and your history well, spend some time examining you and help you with your non-emergent needs.

Can a chest pain brought by acid reflux radiate to neck and ears, causing spasms and pressures?

Can a chest pain brought by acid reflux radiate to neck and ears, causing spasms and pressures?

Easy to Fix it: Take a good antacid for a few days. This should make the pain from acidity go away. If the pain persists, then it is not related to acid reflux. In that case you should go see a ENT doctor. As for antacids, you might have a favorite but I can suggest that you take either Pepcid (Famotidine) or Prilosec. Take it daily for one week. The acid reflux-pain goes away within 24 hours. ...Read more
