    Yo so I’m a real neurotic and worry about everything! Half the time I want to go to the doctor to ask them about stuff but I worry I’m wasting their time because it’s just anxiety? And is it bad to worry about your health all the time? Thanks love ur channel x

    • Miranda Brooks says:

      Then the next doctor you go to should may be a doctor of psychology. Look into therapy and stop thinking you are sick. Good luck!

    • Carina ! says:

      Your doctor should be able to help you with anxiety you feel if it’s becoming an issue, or they can refer you to a professional in that field to help.

      Also yes worrying and stress can be bad for you health. Especially mental health it affects your gut. Stress and worrying caused my IBS.

      Mind if I ask how old you are?

    Love your channel I’ve learned so much! How did I get ringworm on my calf? I hate it

    • Yaya Haz says:

      Be careful I have had ringworm for 3 months ive been treating it with anti fungal cream and recently it spread all over my body, my dr prescribed oral fluconazole i hope it works! Wash ur sheets and clothes every day w hot water! And take daily showers to prevent it from spreading

    • Bethany Davis says:

      I HAD IT TOO! I got it from my kitten but we both got treatment and are doing great now.

    • Don't forget to drink your cyanide says:

      Animals can carry the fungus and it can survive on fibers and porous surfaces for several months. You can use over the counter athlete’s foot cream or go to your doctor for ketoconazole cream.

    • Don't forget to drink your cyanide says:

      +Yaya Haz try bath products with tea tree oil and if you have a strong stomach, take a bath in line sulfur dip (you’ll find it marketed for pets). It will make you and your house smell like rotten eggs but works very well. Ringworm can recur. You’ll know it’s gone when you haven’t had any spots for at least 28 days. You can get it on your scalp as well and in some people, this can cause loss of hair from the affected area. Bleach or use a veterinary cleanser specifically for ringworm on all hard surfaces in your home and use bleach or ketoconazole pet shampoo on your carpet, or you can get Sani-Guard total release foggers and use them in your home le you would a bug bomb.

    • Ashley DiGiacomo says:

      Yaya Haz omg it’s almost gone thank God

  3. Zainab 28 says:

    Love the idea of a podcast. Any idea when it’s gonna happen ?

  4. rachel says:

    I grind my teeth in my sleep, but I’m talking like proper grinding. Obviously I’ve never heard it because I’m asleep but my parents and sister have told me that it makes them feel sick, and it’s woken my mum up before (when we’re in hotel rooms). Apparently it’s because my jaw doesn’t relax when I go to sleep. Do you know how I could stop doing this?

  5. Peer Oldenburg says:

    There is this guy with the YouTube channel paulthomasmd who is a pediatrician and actually sometimes films his patients on routine exams if they give consent. Are you able to do that and if not what prohibits you. Ethics or is there an actual law?

  6. Angelica Di Libero says:

    Hey Dr. Mike! I got my braces off a few months ago but I never really got that “perfect mouth” since the orthodontist never fixed my open overbite. He suggested I do jaw surgery, but I’m a little sceptical. Is it really necessary to go through with the procedure if I don’t have any problems with eating, etc?

  7. Destiny Reidel says:

    My friend had the same complaint of rib popping and one day she woke up and her lung collapsed. Turns out she has a genetic condition that causes “bleps” to form in her lungs. The popping was actually the bleps (basically a blister) popping. This one was so bad that it blew a hole in the top of her lung and subsequently she had the top portion of her lung removed and was in the hospital for a week. Soooo go to the doctor!!

    • Destiny Reidel says:

      She was admitted to the ER with a collapsed lung (shortness of breath and pain) they tried to slowly inflate the lung and when it wouldn’t hold I think they assumed at that point it was the bleps. They had to do surgery to fix the hole in the top of her lung and when they did there diagnosis was confirmed. The doctor said it’s moderately common and there’s nothing she could have done to prevent it except maybe not smoking and knowing your family history since its usually genetic. My friend is adopted so she had no idea and she was a smoker before this. I wouldn’t worry too much, from what I’ve read it’s mostly dangerous to the elderly and the very young due to the lung collapsing and not being able to get to help.

    • Destiny Reidel says:

      Lisa Yarnell I realized I was spelling it wrong, they are called Blebs not bleps. Also check this website out, gave me a lot of info:

    • Danyelle says:

      How scary!

    • Liz Ayelet says:

      That’s so interesting! And awful! I’m glad I’ve never had that but I’ve had my ribs twist around each other and I thought that was bad enough.

    • Lisa Yarnell says:

      Destiny Reidel thank you so much for the reply! I feel better about it now. I mean, still don’t know why it happens to me but I do know my lungs have not been compromised from it.

  8. Pretty buoy Jones says:

    How do you find time to do YouTube, aren’t doctor’s extremely busy?

    • Bailey Addieg says:

      Pretty buoy Jones he is a family doctor so I’m pretty sure he mostly has set hours but I might be wrong

    • Riy99 Bl says:

      Im sure he signs up to institutes with a more comfortable work hours coz in the long run, youtube and the fame will give him more income than being a dr. Having an alternate source of income will help u relax better and choose hospitals that have a more ethical and friendly management, will give u the freedom to practice on ur own time and help ppl better ( if that’s what u care abt). Else ul never get a paycheck worth ur efforts and struggle in the medical field… it just looks fancy from the reality , doctors are overworked and get less than what a person deserves for the years of studies, study expenses and the hours of work and stress that goes into being a dr. The same is true even with this guy can easily get into modelling and advertisements. Im sure he knows very well that youtube is his key to success .

  9. Nemo Geo says:

    I was wondering, what’s your opinion on Chiropractors?

    • BJ C says:

      Failed physiotherapists who wouldn’t know ‘science’ if it bit em in the ass.

    • BJ C says:

      Katlin Stewardson I’m guessing he’d not be too happy with chiros. He was trained with science. Chiros can best be described as snake oil salesmen. Completely unethical. Not based in any science (based in made up science), they tell parents not to vaccinate their kids, they kill folks with their neck “manipulations” and they lie repeatedly.
      I’m guessing the manipulations he is trained in are science based and less potentially harmful.

    • BJ C says:

      I should have looked into DOs. I’m not sure he isn’t a chiropractor after watching his other video. I would definitely like to hear him respond to this and explain the science behind chiropractic manipulations. I may need to reassess my comfort with his medical opinions.

    • Max Meijerink says:

      In the Netherlands chiropractors are second line medicine, so they are not even acknowledged as real help😂.

    • Supernova says:

      DO’s get the same courses MD’s do, with additional 250 hours of chiro-practise training.
      No difference. He did everything other MD’s do. And his father is also a doctor.

      Watch his other video on MD vs DO.

    What is your opinion on Pre Workout Supplements

    • Esteban Julio Ricardo Montoya De La Rosa Ramirez says:

      I’d imagine workout supplements, generally consisting of caffeine, protein, creatine, and/or various other compounds, which are widely used within a community of people who can see physical results of such supplements, are a bit different than vitamin c pills that claim to prevent colds

    • EmojiKid says:

      DON’T TAKE THEM!!! They’re not regulated by the FDA.

    • Max Meijerink says:

      The only ones what actually work are creatine, beta alanine, citrulline malate and caffeine. The rest is overkill and a waste of money.

    • Chris Botos says:

      +Natalie Palmer I do not know if you have ever taken a pre workout ,but it is not like the other supplements. You can totally understand if it works or not , because it gives you an extreme amount of energy.

    • Natalie Palmer says:

      Chris Botos a lot of them just have caffeine in them which yes obviously gives you energy. There are ones that don’t have caffeine may feel like they give you energy, but the companies selling them don’t have to prove that they actually do what they claim. Also the placebo effect is very real 😉. I was a college athlete and had to take plenty of extra training and health classes because of that, so I’m not just some rando telling you this. If you don’t believe me, do your own research and see if you can find any real studies or peer reviewed articles showing that these supplements have a positive effect. If you have a good diet and are getting enough sleep, you shouldn’t even need supplements and you would be paying just to have expensive pee and a nice placebo 😬

    Is it just me but when he talks I gaze into his eyes and smile?

    No one?


    Maybe I’m just weird. 🙂

  13. Odeleya R says:

    Dr Mike I feel like I’m just going to have a complete meltdown any second and I feel like your videos are such a huge light in my life that I forget about everything and just smile.
    I’m 13 and my brother who is turning 15 this coming Sunday, is having such a hard time and with that, my whole family is suffering so badly. My brother has been diagnosed with ADHD, anxiety, depression and PTSD. He got almost all of this through something traumatic that he went through in school when he was younger and it’s scard him ever since. My family has been taking him to therapy and nureologists and all of that. It’s helped a little bit but it’s still really bad. He’s been smoking weed and juuls and and abusing the drugs he’s been given to calm him down. Last week, he got admitted to a hospital in Long island that has a facility that treats depression and all of that. He was just fine the whole week but the weekend was terrible. One of the nurses on shift has been abusing and disrespecting all of the kids in the facility including my brother. She’s also been caught by my brother, making fun of a child with autism. Since I’m only 13, it was so hard to see my brother’s life getting screwed over time and time again and something else also happened today when I visited him that I really don’t want to talk about but I had to witness my brother suffering for years. This is affecting my mental health and the only people I have to talk about it are my parents which are almost never home on weekdays.
    I just want to thank you for your videos which are full of love, laughter and happiness. Thank you❤️

    You’re 6″3′??

  15. 4o'clock Moonchild says:

    You should definitely do a video regarding endometriosis. Its awesome that it is being talked about more (way more than ever, and there was an episode on the good doctor recently about it too- i haven’t seen it myself but apparently its not that great as apparentlyyyy they went on to performing a hysterectomy which really does more damage than good, considering it does nothing but leave young women into menopause ), BUT i still feel like there are WAY too many misinformation going around, even by drs and gynos that “specialise” in the area. Pleaseeee consider reading some studies and resources found on the Facebook group “Nancys Nook Endometriosis Education” where its strictly for educational (and not support) purposes only (ps you have to answer the 3 (?) questions before being accepted into the group). There are many Drs in that group that are trying to study it in depth more too. I would love to hear an emphasis on how it is diagnosed, the best means to remove (although not cure, as its not possible) endo ie excision surgery, not ablation (as its only burning off the visible endo-potentially killing surrounding cells, and therefore actually still being there unlike excision that is PROPERLY excised etc, and different ways to REDUCE endo symtpoms (I find that the drs online trying to educate people about this subject keep insisting that there are only “drugs/meds” (like birth control) that can stop the pain when there are so many side effects to it, and they never really emphasis on the importance of being treated properly by excising endo thoroughly, and have other similar pain avenues (like pcos) treated too. Thankyou Dr Mike!!!!

    • Melissa Huff says:

      Jessica Cyr I’ve heard that pregnancy sometimes cures it. So that’s interesting. I didn’t get actual diagnosed until about 4 years ago, and I have so much scar tissue and adhesions that babies are probably never happening. And the last gyno I had just wanted to do hysterectomy. Which I don’t want because I could still maybe do IVF. But no one has still really given me straight answers.

    • Di Bunea says:

      OMG your comment is long af, but when I saw endometriosis . . . He TOTALLY should do a video on that. I need more proper information about it.

    • 4o'clock Moonchild says:

      Melissa Huff + @Di Bunea and everyone else please do yourself a huugeeee favour and join the Facebook group “Nancy’s Nook Endometriosis Education”- just answer the 3 short questions to be accepted (it’s NOT a support group, rather an extensive library full of GREAT resources!) You will definitely find the answers to your questions there- and goodluck!!xx

    • 4o'clock Moonchild says:

      Jaybirdie 2 heyhey! ❤️

    • Winter Rose says:

      I’d also like his opinion regarding what his medical procedure would be for young females, say as young as 22-26yrs old, with endo or chronic ovarian cysts, that insist they want a hysterectomy because they doesn’t plan to procreate and their ovarian/uteran issues are too debilitating. I have noticed that a lot of young women with these issues don’t feel respected in their wishes by their physicians.

  16. Amie Falkner says:

    Did anyone else notice that his stethoscope kept switching sides. 😂😂 I love you doctor mike, I’ve had a lot of medical issues myself and I think medicine is interesting. I’m only a freshmen in high school so I’m not sure what I want to do with my life but medicine seems like a good field to go in to, any suggestions on what classes I should take in high school to have a better chance at get scholarships?

  17. Alex Mackey says:

    6″3′ ? What?????? I was not expecting that? Can someone put him in a Calvin Klein underwear ad already. please lol

  18. James Hardy87 says:

    Why do I have to wait so long before being called back for my appointment at the doctor, even when I’m on time?? What’s going on back there?

    • MissCaraMint says:

      James Hardy87 because other people aren’t on time, or need more time than an ordinary appointmen. Rushing an appointment to stay on scedual could leed to potentialy missing something important.

    • boddahveryape says:

      I work in the animal medical field but I’m sure the same thing happens. So we allot 30 per appt. depending on how many questions and how much the owner talks and maybe they decided last minute they wanted other things done will make the appt longer. Then making doctors behind on their next appointments!! I suggest always having a morning appt. like the 1st or second because then you probably won’t run into that problem
