Ask Dr. Oz: Post Op #15

Posted:

An audience member claims to have pain in her jaw when the weather gets cold, and she asks why this happens.

Dr. Oz answers, saying that small air pockets within one’s body increase and decrease in size with weather change. This change in the barometer often affects the nerves that surround the pockets, sometimes causing aches and pains nearby.

Heidi has just been diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (a disorder of the lower intestinal tract that can lead to a variety of digestive problems), and GERD (a condition in which food or liquid travels backwards from the stomach to the esophagus, the tube from the mouth to the stomach.

This action can irritate the esophagus, causing heartburn and other symptoms). Heidi wants to know what she can do to help decrease these symptoms and related pain. Dr. Oz recommends that Heidi takes probiotics to replace missing bacteria that she needs for healthy digestion.

Dr. Oz also mentions that glutens, wheat, and dairy products are big factors in making the painful symptoms of IBS and GERD worse.

Denise is going through menopause and experiences heart palpitations.

Denise often coughs to help curb the sensation of choking, and she wants to know if she can stop this.

Dr. Oz explains that a rapid change in estrogen levels is responsible for menopause, and per checking Denise’s pulse, he believes that she might have atrial fibrillation, and recommends that she visit a cardiologist.
