What problems can be caused by 6+ hours a day of whole body vibration in a standing stationary position?

What problems can be caused by 6+ hours a day of whole body vibration in a standing stationary position?

Depends on...: Problems with standing for a lot time or with persistent vibration will vary with the time of the activity, the intensity of it, and the individual person. Vibration can damage nerves, so people use gloves and other equipment to damp vibrations. Prolonged tanding is not good for the circulation to legs, nor for back and spine symptoms, so one should shift weight and move around. ...Read more

Been sick 6 days. couldnt eat much,maybe once a day. 500 kcal max. Now better. Did my body go into starvation mode in just 6 days?

Been sick 6 days. couldnt eat much,maybe once a day. 500 kcal max. Now better. Did my body go into starvation mode in just 6 days?

Very Unlikely: Depends on baseline muscle mass. The more muscle you have, the more packaged sugar (glucose stored as glycogen) you can hold. Your liver alone has only ~3 days worth of glycogen/glucose. In "starvation mode" the liver breaks down muscle to make glucose, and fat is converted to ketones, the 2nd best source of brain energy. If you were able to keep down 50g carb/d (can ginger ale = 366g) you're ok. ...Read more

Bad effects-stop now: Smoking dramatically increases risk of heart disease, stroke, lung disease & cancer. It is probably the worst thing you can do for your health & quitting the best! even 6-10 cigarettes/day is quite hazardous. As soon as you stop your health will start to improve.

RLS?: I don't know what it IS (you shouldn't expect that kind of answer on HealthTap), but it COULD be restless-leg syndrome, or what they're calling Willis-Ekbom disease these days. Check out www.rls.org to see if you have any of the other symptoms (there are 4 cardinal symptoms). If it is RLS, it's not curable, but it is treatable. The best specialist to see about it is a neurologist. ...Read more

I consume 6-8pints of water per day and have an average type body with about average activity levels, is it safe for me to have 2oz of bourbon a day?

I consume 6-8pints of water per day and have an average type body with about average activity levels, is it safe for me to have 2oz of bourbon a day?

Not really!: It doesn't go that way, that the more water you consume, the safer it is to consume bourbon.Alcohol can be dehydrating, and depending on your BMI, you could be overdiluting and drinking too much water! So, best is to avoid alcohol or bourbon daily, altogether. It's toxic to nerves. Speak to ur PCP on why you're drinking so much water? More importantly? Have that worked up! Need to find out cause! ...Read more
