I am female, 31 years old, 5'10" tall, and about 330lbs. A co-worker of mine is "training" me on Crossfit, but I am not sure that it is exactly safe for someone of my weight. The first day out, he had me running up and down a hall, and then up four flights of stairs, and I could not complete it. I do not have days in between to rest, as he has me working out everyday, and by the third day, I could barely move (i.e. could hardly walk, get into bed, etc.) and he said this was a good thing. I am afraid if I keep doing this workout that I will suffer some serious medical problems. Bottom line, is Crossfit a safe exercise for people who are considered morbidly obese like myself?
My girlfriend has got multiple problems. She thinks that there's something wrong going on with her, but when we went for a check up like ECG and ECO everything was normal. She's in depression that she will die. Sometimes her heart beats quite fast. Sometimes She feels quite shocked. She also has gas problem. She also tells me that her chest feels like very warm sometimes. But she never experiences any pain or anything like that. Her breath is sometimes abnormal. She cries a lot.
I was diagnosed today with anemia. Chest tightness. Fast heart rate. Very tired all the time. Diarrhea. Vomit. He gave me iron pills to start. The fast heart rate is annoying. At night mostly. My question is how is my iron going g to get better if I don't have a appetite in 4 days?
I started to develop a cold sore/ fever blister about a week and a half ago. It is now completely dried up, flat, no longer warm and feels just like the rest of my lip. it is only visible through the scar that it left. I recently engaged in sexual activity. is the scar of the cold sore contagious? did I pass it to my partner?
I am on birth control (tricyclen) and am currently taking Augmentin for UTI. I began having some spotting mid cycle then my normal period while on the placebo week. I finish the Augmentin tomorrow and begin my new pill pack on Sunday. My doctor told me I wouldn't need a backup method while on Augmentin, I would only need one if I experienced nausea or diarrhea, which I have not.
My husband and I had sex this morning, no condoms.My period has ended and I begin my new pill pack on Sunday. What are the odds that my pill could have been affected by the Augmentin? Is it safe to say that a backup method wasn't needed? Will I be fully protected again once I start my new pill pack? Information on this subject seems to be so varied from person to person it's hard to understand.
Extreme bloating, gas that won't pass, threw up Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, constipation to begin with, then diarrhea. Feel like I'm about to burst open. Been eating very little (a few spoonfuls of chicken noodle soup, oatmeal, canned pears) Very little fluid intake. Diagnosed years ago with Spastic Colon, IBS, Hiatal Hernia Have been taking medications (Bentyl, Prilosec, Compazine daily) for years but have never experienced anything this extreme. Have tried Tagament and Simethicone. They give a little relief for a little while, then I'm back to square one. Suggestions?
I took some Promethazine-Codeine prescribed by my local physician today to try to calm down my coughing. Unfortunately,I'm experiencing some mild but uncomfortable swelling in my throat. I don't think its getting any worse but its preventing me from sleeping. What can I take to reduce the swelling?!
I had asked and had answered a question earlier concerning loss of smell. I have had trouble with my voice since the winter when the nose issues began. I had used decongestants proscribed by doctor to combat what he thought was sinus infection. It wasn't. This started in January. Since then I have had issues with my voice. At first it was just raspy as the day when on and cracked sometimes. After 5 weeks I stopped the decongestants when I noticed my throat was dry. I was until two weeks ago a smoker. ENT said two months ago laryngitis and vocal fatigue and referred me to a voice therapist. Symptoms worsening. Due to nose issues I have to breathe through my mouth mainly. At first it was fine in the morning and then worse through the day. Now it is still best in the morning but no longer clear and very quickly turns raspy and painful to speak. It is holding me back from full time work. I have taken care last few months to drink plenty of water. What can you suggest to help me recover from these issues?
