Q:

Am I having a heart attack?

A:

While chest pain is widely recognized as a hallmark symptom of a heart attack, there are several other symptoms that could be a sign of this serious condition, particularly in women. These symptoms include nausea, fatigue, trouble sleeping, difficulty breathing, sweating, dizziness, racing heart rate and swelling. If you experience any of these symptoms or recognize them in someone else, call 911 immediately, as early treatment and intervention is the best way to reduce the damage and chance of death from a heart attack.

Q:

What is degenerative scoliosis?

A:

As we age, the discs in our spine begin to thin gradually. This degeneration in the joints of the spine can cause a curve in the spine, which is called degenerative scoliosis. It typically shows up later in life, is typically quite mild and can often just be monitored without any major treatment by your physician. If you think you may be experiencing some changes in your spine, you should visit your physician.

Q:

What new technologies are currently available to help a patient monitor blood sugar levels painlessly and effectively?

A:

Over the last few years there have been some advances in blood glucose monitoring. For the first time ever, Flash technology allows a patient to take a blood glucose reading without having to prick their finger. A small round, needle-less patch is worn on the arm. All the patient needs to do is wave the device provided, or their smart phone over the patch to get a blood glucose reading.
