Asking Michael Reeves About His Exploding Bladder & "Education"

Michael Reeves is one of my favorite FItoprs. He’s extremely creative with his engineering, building robots that do all sorts of hilarious things. He’s made a roomba that screams when it hits something, a microwave powered by screams, an electric chair that tasers you if you can’t find Waldo fast enough. Come to think of it, most of Michaels inventions are somehow scream-related. Unfortunately, Michael is no stranger to scream-inducing pain himself, as he revealed his scary history with a bladder problem that nearly left him passed out on the floor of a Hawaii shopping mall. I wanted to set the record straight with Michael over the “popping” sound that emerged from inside him, the frequency of his urination, his “p-i-s cup” invention, and the claims people make that his urine “turned black."

      Wait, Dr. Mike! You made a great video and all, but you NEVER ACTUALLY EXPLAINED WHAT HAPPENED TO MICHAEL'S BLADDER!!! No theories, no prognosis, nothing that could have been the issue that caused the "popping", blacking out, and frequent urination! What's up w/ that?!?!

      Watching this video, when I saw you mention something about aneurysms... It reminded me of when I felt something pop in my skull (when I was on naproxen) around my right temple and this like liquidated pain spread throughout my skull. It ended up giving me a severe migraine and I made a doctor appointment I think within a week from then? The doctor simply said, "Oh that's not normal. Let's take you off that medication." That was that. We never checked it out or anything we just moved on and I've never ever had it checked 😂😂😂

    I know people who had aneurysms. Also, everybody learns best in their own way. Listening is not my best way to learn because of my hearing loss. Re watching things or re listening to lectures is not a first. Most people on average need to hear things 3 times in different ways and at different times to remember something. So Just repeating yourself 3 times does not work. People will not remember that you have to say the same thing in different ways; just in an essay. In an Essay you say something as an introduction then you expand upon what you said, then you conclude what you just said. Its different ways of saying the same thing. Just repeating yourself three times does not work, so having to re-watching things is absolutely normal.

    Hi there- I was just wondering if i could ask you a medical question about blood pressure? It's unrelated to Michael Reeves exploding bladder though. I know you sometimes do a question/answer episode & I just had a quick question if u have time, if not, that's okay. I'm sure ur a busy doc. Usually I have high blood pressure & I take metoprolol 4 it & most times it works great.This past week though I've had 2 totally weird readings which I'm not sure if I should worry or not, or if they'll just go away. One reading was 91/52 a couple days ago and 2nites was 193/119. I took 2 blood pressure pills for the 193/119 reading and some aspirin for good measure cuz someone told me its good 4 ur heart. Anyway, I was hoping maybe if u do another question/answer episode if you might have any ideas on whether I should worry or will it just go away? Thanks! -Angie

    My friends' uncle died from an aneurysm. Y'know when they say not to hold your breath when you're pushing out poop? Yeah, don't hold your breath when trying to push one out. It caused enough pressure to rupture an aneurysm that he didn't even know he had. Those same friends' mom had an aneurysm years before that and thankfully caught it because it caused her severe migraines, but the doctor screwed up and hit something that's caused her permanent short and long term memory. She woke up and couldn't remember her own kids. It took awhile for her to remember, and when her daughter started having migraines? Straight to the neurologist for some scans. Thankfully, my friend didn't have an aneurysm, just normal, annoying migraines.
