We’ve all been guilty of ear digging. Most of my patients say they do it because they can’t stand the thought of earwax in their ear canal. Others will simply say that ear digging feels “shiok”. Imagine their surprise when I tell them that the ear canal is a self-cleansing organ which doesn't need to be cleaned!

DOCTOR'S GUIDE TO ROOT CANAL TREATMENT COST IN SINGAPORE

You feel your tooth hurt, and the ache radiates all the way up to your temples. You feel as if there is an electrical storm going through your brain and your brain’s convulsing in sheer excruciating pain.

You’re thinking it’s the end. "Just take it out doctor, end it all."

Whilst the straightforward approach to resolving a damaged and inflamed tooth is simply to extract it out, the consequence of doing so is quite jarring.

There will be a gaping hole in your smile, or a hole in the arch that makes chewing difficult.

For the past two weeks, I have been unable to get proper rest.

It wasn't because of any life stressors (such as losing a loved one); I had been started on new medications and simply couldn't fall asleep.

I was yawning every 5 seconds with my eyes closed, and despite lying on my bed for 2 hours, I was still unable to fall asleep. Needless to say, I was frustrated.

The situation was tolerable at first. However, by day 3, I was starting to lose it. I had become noticeably more irritable, clumsier and generally miserable.

If you ever asked a women one thing she would change about being female, it would almost definitely be periods. Not only are periods bloody and painful (or bloody painful), they're also associated with the notorious PMS.

So, is PMS a ploy created by a secret organisation of women designed to give females a free pass for being grumpy once a month? Or perhaps it was a term coined by sexist males who didn’t take females seriously and wanted to put everything down to "hormones"?

I often encounter friends and patients who tell me that they have “thyroid”, as if their thyroid gland is a disease or a problem. The fact is, everybody has a thyroid gland.

Your thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped gland that sits in front of the windpipe. It's function is to produce thyroid hormones that regulate your metabolism (how your body use energy).

Most people have a perfectly normal thyroid gland. You don’t have to do anything at all if your thyroid gland is healthy!
