Ask a Doctor: Achille’s tendon injuries, gag reflexes, leg cramps, and more


Every Thursday, Dr. Kalani Brady from the John A. Burns School of Medicine answers your viewer questions. He appears at about 6:50 and 7:20.

 

Today, some of his viewer questions include:

Do I treat an Achille’s tendon injury like a sprain and RICE, or should I see a doctor?

When I brush my teeth in the morning I gag and have to stop. How do I not gag?

My legs cramp. Would a banana, magnesium tablet, or more water help?
