My Dear Child Do you have bad periods. Where is your back ground from? Have you talked to your parents? Do you drink water at all. If not you might be dehydrated. What are your doctors saying? The reason why I am asking you about your background is because there is a blood disorder that unless you ask for this test they will not do it and it comes from a place in Europe such as Italy. Greece, Spain, Etc. Its called Thalaciemia major or minor. Do not think I spelled it right but this blood type but it can be serious if you are not tested for it. You might also be growing to fast or not eating properly. You might also be lacking in protein or iron. My dear go to the doctor and have this looked at. Good luck. G.G.

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?
