The Truth About Cracking Your Knuckles | Responding to Comments #15

Trying on Doctor Halloween Costumes 😂-
We are back at it responding to your comments and questions via this monthly video series. I love reading and responding to your comments and as you can tell I'll jump into the comments section with a reply or a heart quite often. If one of the questions I answered was not detailed enough or you want more info on the subject please let me know so that I can make a dedicated video giving you all of the info!
A few favorite topics from this video are:
1) Cracking knuckles
2) My patients
3) CPR and Ribs
4) Bear Pup
5) Compression Headache
6) Stress and Grey Hair
7) Cold Sores and Canker Sores
Doctors are traditionally unreachable and I want to change that. So hop into this video’s and any other of my video’s comment section and ask dr mike! I want to see your username pop up on my next responding to comments video.
If you have an idea of something you want me to cover in-depth, please let me know because I take your requests seriously. We will be back with more Medical Drama Review Series in a couple of weeks so please submit more names of shows/episodes you'd like for me to watch. Love you all!

  • MAJOR QUESTIONS : 3:20 - You used a term "sutures of the scalp." Define this use of the term "sutures." Only heard it as a reference to wound closures. 4:30 - Same for "free radicals." 7:29 - OH DANG ! I always got canker sores during exams in college! Always thought I was getting sick due to stress-related immunity loss. With this, is there a similarity to "nervous hives." 9:08 - I had a boss who used to be a weight lifter. He SWORE by pineapple juice as a means of keeping this at bay. This and not drinking milk before a workout. He said the lactic acid would settle in the irritated muscle tissue and make the soreness worse. 10:12 - Also, if you're a shooter there is NOTHING cooler than shaking up soda cans/ bottles and shwacking them with hollow points! Just sayin'!

  • I had a accident where I destroyed everything in my knee bar 1 ligament and the knee cap. I had an ACL reconstruction, 2 screws and 2 plates put in. 3 years later I am in more pain then before. Why? Is a whole knee replacement possible? Would it help? I'm 22 and way to young to be feeling this old with my knee 😂. P. S love your channel, please so more question videos!! 💕
