    I actually paused the video at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="303">5:03</a> and tried to guess the name of the of the profession of studying dreams, I did get it right, but only because I speak Greek and it seems to me that people in medicine just say things in Greek to sound clever :-D Like Nosocomial infection....

    Hi doctor Mike. The good doctor season 3 episode 19 and 20 have some dramatic and intense scenes because of an earthquake, 1 of which is of Doctor Murphy having to cut off a patient's lower leg. There are also a few other scenes in these episodes all worthy of a reaction video. If you would be able to do one when ever you got chance that would be awesome. ;)

    Hi!! This is more of a request and not a medical question. I guess it's a little of both. I had a little cousin pass away suddenly from Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH). I was wondering if you could do a rare disease series. Maybe mentioning leading specialist in the nation. We think part of her passing away was getting her adequate care fast enough. Her mother even traveled abroad to get 3/4 and 5 opinions all were wrong until it was too late and then there was a delay in finding a specialist.

    So I have a question that none of my doctors have ever answered- last year my legs slowly started to bruise, I mean big purple bruises that covered the whole of my legs back and front, ankles etc and while this was happening my legs were stuck in a slight bent position, my ankles were also stuck to the point I was on tiptoes with slight bent knees.. (if that makes any sense) no doctor ever gave me a reason for this. I was unable to walk for 5months and the pain was excruciating... any idea?🤔

    I am 26 years old, however within the last few years I have been getting really severe headaches, to where I have actually fallen to the ground clenching my head to relieve the pain. I ended up going in the next day and got a spinal tap done which ended up being clear and thus not indicating an aneurysm of any sort. Why have my headaches been getting so severe? I also drink lots of water and yes I do smoke but these headaches don't always come after smoking. Do you have any ideas what might be causing them or as to why they have been getting more sever in recent years?

    I'm not sure if you've answered this but my boyfriend has narcolepsy (forgive me if i mispelled it) and with this he also has insomnia so he's up most nights and barely sleeps at all during the day or at night. Is there anything you can recommend? For the record he isn't very physical is usually sitting most of the day, he has low blood pressure so he takes medication for it, and at the same time he is obese and like me he also has sleep apnea when he does manage to sleep

    I pick my nose because it's the only method that seems to clear my nasal passage enough to really feel like I can smell things. For some reason when I pick my nose I feel like I can breath & smell better. I feel like my brain is getting more oxygen. Is this unusual? P.S. If I ever run for President please disregard this comment...
