Reply xxx xxx says: June 9, 2019 at 10:04 pm You begin with "if you have pain in your chest call 911 immediately" and continue with asking them to subscribe your channel and watch the 12 minute long video. Don't you think that's the height of being insensitive and silly ? Simply make a short video and only highlight the points first and then keep explaining them each in detail later ? Pls, refer Dr. Berg's videos for some coaching. Reply mani says: June 10, 2019 at 9:02 am I've got never ending chest pain and shortness of breath for the last 7 days. It started when I was gardening and breathed in a dust cloud that was coming from dry soil I was raking. The symptoms are similar to the serious symptoms that this video says I should worry about. The pain also gets worse with exercise and radiates to my shoulders and arms. I'm very perplexed. I'm in my mid twenties and never got these symptoms before breathing in the dust cloud.

Reply Helena VonDrakenstein says: June 25, 2019 at 3:09 pm With all due respect……at about 5:17 into this video you're talking about the squeezing..bear hug..elephant on the chest feeling…and suggesting to take it seriously and to go see your doctor………..personally i would think that advice could cost a life. I think the right answer is to not waste a single moment and to immediately call ambulance/EMS or whatever emergency service is available in your area. Reply Nina Hernandez says: June 26, 2019 at 5:37 pm Hello I’m 25 yrs old, I am a diabetic type 2 i take insulin and all the medications.

This is month 9 of prednisone and I had my first episode in the daytime last week, it radiates from my shoulder through my chest, into my neck, jaw and back of throat? I've never experienced so much pain before. But I'm always in the ER, pneumonia, kidney infections etc and I hate the idea of going. When I move im soaked in minutes and cant catch my breath.

Reply Knight Rider says: June 28, 2019 at 9:48 pm I recently had blood work, very healthy across the board, been on carnivore for 1 year. Lately I've been burping a lot, so I've been taking ACV for the last week along with re-introducing eggs, and eating quite a bit of extra fat scraps. For the last 3 days I've had minor chest pain. Can't afford to go to the dr. Think to much fat, acv or eggs could cause this? Thanks- Reply Cars N Guitars Bret Bunton says: June 29, 2019 at 3:26 am My dad just suffered a heart attack. All men on my side of the family have heart attacks. I'm thin, so is everyone else. I've eaten terrible my entire life. I'm 32. Ive been getting chest pains the last year or so but more pin pointed pain for a few days. But. There has been pressure the last couple days, mainly due to stress. Feels like an panic attack. Pressure, uneasy, breathing feels hard. Reply LemonDrop88 says: June 29, 2019 at 7:13 am Good video that actually helped instead of freaking me out even more. You gained a new subscriber.

He is making a video for making money. I have never heard women get heart disease at all. If so how many percent? Very fews out of billions. Exception can’t be an example. Women are very stronger sex. Please make a video for innocent men. Reply Susan Bush says: July 4, 2019 at 7:16 am Okay Dr Berry I’m gonna throw you a curve ball. I’ll try to keep the back story brief. Born in 1969, I’m 50. In 2008 I was diagnosed with Sarcoidosis that was cutaneous. I had a bunch of sores that wouldn’t heal on my scalp… biopsied… Sarcoidosis. CXR fine. Family history of Rheumatoid arthritis, from my mom to my twin sister. CT a few years ago of my heart… my dad passed at 48… I’ve been taking statins since I was about 25-26…. everything is good with my heart, no calcifications. My score is zero, however they have a problem with my lungs. I have a bunch of nodules. My doctors assume it’s sarcoid, no treatment no biopsy. They don’t want to put me on any medication until I literally can’t breathe. I do get short of breath doing activities, carrying laundry up the stairs… I do recover after a few minutes. I also have a 4.3- 4.8 aortic aneurysm per Echo and CT scans. So to get to the pain issue… I’ve had this really intense crushing pain around my diaphragm and in between my boobs. I do have reflux, I’m taking Prilosec once a day, added Zantac 2 times a day. They think it’s reflux, I still have the pain. The cardio thoracic surgeon felt that it’s not a heart problem. The pain when it comes on is so painful, it just gets more and more intense. If I drink ice water, most of the time it goes away. These episodes happen when I’m doing nothing or asleep. Maybe it’s prinzmetal’s angina…. I don’t want to ever bring anything up with my Doctor. I pick and choose if something has been really bothering me and painful. If I mention it, most likely it’s been going on 6-12 months… Reply Allan Byrne says: July 4, 2019 at 9:40 am Brilliant video, just had stents and get many of the pains you suggest are not life threateneing. Thanks Reply Crsed says: July 4, 2019 at 10:01 pm Well… Crap…. Based on this doc I probably had a heart attack a few weeks ago…. Was walking home from getting some groceries when suddenly I was out of breath and chest pain. Had to stop for a bit before I could continue home. Note I'm in a foreign country and don't know what number to call. (Yes I know I should have/should right now look it up)I'll be back in the USA next month. Reply GachaBADDA BADDA says: July 6, 2019 at 1:57 am Everytime i get this random chest pain and for a sec i can't breath right, and then i have a chest pain and i cant breath ok. I am a kid and this has happened to me for like 1 week now…Can someone tell me if i am fine, or if i should go to the doctor? Reply DickinsonCassidy says: July 6, 2019 at 4:30 am This is a great video, thank you. My boyfriend was recently diagnosed (about 5-6 months ago at 19) with diabetes and he has been having chest pains, but when he goes to the hospital they rule out anything serious. Because of this, he needs to get it checked by his family doctor or a cardiologist, but he is between doctors as his old doctor was too far away with him needing to get prescriptions all the time for his test strips, insulin etc,. So in the meantime, I decided to do some research and posted on r/diabetes, where someone told me to check this video out. It was really informative and I feel it is super important for me to know this as a woman and girlfriend of a diabetic. I actually may have to go to the doctor too to get my chest checked out as I have discomfort/problems with breathing but it has been part of my life for so long I just calked it up to bad lungs, but this video made me realize that I might want to get it checked out, farther safe the sorry and with women having different symptoms….Anyways, thanks again for the great video!

Reply Sonidoo says: July 10, 2019 at 12:07 pm I'm having chest pain right in the middle of the chest for more than 2 months. I went to several doctors to see the problem. Most if them said it is bloating. I thought he would talk about it. I am aware that I have some troubles with bloating and colon, but I do not know how this can be linked to my chest. I went to a cardiologist and did all that stuff and he said no problems found. I'm still having that feeling now. A brief chest pain that can be felt once and disappears. When I move or stand up when I'm laying I have that pain and I can't have it again in the same place. When I touch it's normal, no pain. Nothing. I can deep breath and cough without any feeling. I do not know what to do, still trying to be convinced it's bloating. Anyone like me here ? Reply Jay B. says: July 10, 2019 at 2:10 pm This was reassuring.
