have you ever herd of a 48 year old man having freiberg disease ?

Possible: Freiberg Disease is a painful collapse of the articular surface of the second metatarsal head. It may be associated either with or without trauma. It can occur at ages from 8-77, but is found more frequently in women then men. However, a 48 year old man certainly can have this condition.
Dr. Scott Keith
Podiatry 44 years experience
A very rare Bird.: Understand that this "disease" is rare to begin with. It typically affects adolescent girls. It can affect boys , but a reduced (5:1) ratio. It generally affects the second or third metatarsal and the cause is thought to be vascular, traumatic and even genetic. A 48 year old man could have Freiberg's disease, but it would be considered extremely rare.
Dr. Darrell Latva
Podiatry 42 years experience
RARE: It would be interesting if this were looked at through an MRI and histologically,, to D/Dx from a normal variant and fracture, or unstable metatarsus w/ torn collateral ligaments. But, that makes it more expensive.

It doesn't have: to be age or gender specific.

How long is it on average before a man ejaculates?

Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Uncertain: The amount of time between when an average man first inserts his penis into his partner's vagina and when he ejaculates, is uncertain. It may be difficult to find a man willing to be known as an "average" man when it comes to sexual issues. Durations are probably between 20 seconds and 20 minutes depending on the type of activities, his & her time constraints, and the thoughts flowing in his head.

Diet and muscle mass: To gain weight you have to consume more calories than you are burning. Do this in a healthy way though. Don't choose junk or fast food. Keep a well balanced diet and make sure you are getting all the nutrients you need. Don't cut out exercise as it is very good for you. Weight lifting and other muscle building exercises can help you increase your body mass.
