I am 42 year old female, average weight and height, not obese, fit and active. I have recently been diagnosed asthmatic (approx 2/3 weeks ago) having had breathlessness for several months. I have been prescribed seretide (purple inhlaer) 25/125 twice a day as wall as ventolin (blue inhlaer) - I am finding I am needing the ventolin at least twice a day still. For about 4/5 days now I have had pain in the topf of my chest around about breastbone which is persistent and feels like someone is standing on my chest. I don t have wheeziness but do still get a bit out of breath when rushing around. I take hayfever tables and have been told this is what has triggered the asthma. I am concerned about the chest pain as it is constant - I saw doctor last week and he just said I was anxious and nothing to worry about but it is getting me down now. Do I need to see another doctor or is it related to astham and will eventually go away? Any advice gratefully receievd...

Hi, I rolled my right ankle about 4 weeks ago. After about 2-3 weeks of rest and icing my right ankle, it felt pretty good. Good enough to start jogging again. I could walk and jog with no pain. On the forth week I tried to get back into soccer. Before the game I laced up my shoes and ankle brace then stood straight up to go for a jog. Immediately when I stood up I noticed a sharp ripping pain, across the bottom of my shin maybe near the top of the extensor tendons (if that s the right name for it, the tendon attached to the tibia), moving from the outside to the inside of my foot. I tried loosening the ankle brace but still the ripping pain continued when I stood up. I completely loosened the ankle brace and the ripping pain left and I could jog again. I decided not to play and started to examine the pain. The ripping pain only occurs when I over-extend my right leg or when I am standing/extending my leg and touch/grab my lower shin/upper ankle area. I had an X-Ray done on my lower leg/ankle but I haven t heard back from the doctor so I figured there wasn t any issues with my bones or ligaments. That leads me to believe it is a partial tear(s) in the muscle or tendon. Could you please give me a general idea if I need to have it surgically repaired or will I be able to continue resting and wait it out and eventually it will heal properly all on its own?
