I smoked shisha for the first time and when I spited I spat blood when I came home is this normal for first time or something serious?

Serious: It is a bad idea to use tobacco or any other inhaled intoxicant. Consider it a warning and abstain from repeating this self-destructive activity.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

At the opening: Have you ever inserted a tampon? That is the area where you with want to apply the jelly. You want it to soak in to where your hymen is. It's hard to see, but you can feel with your finger where your vaginal opening is. It's lower than your urethra (where you urinate from). You want to avoid your clitoris and labia minora areas.

I received flea bites for the first time in my home. I washed the sheets and vacuumed the floor. How do I know if I need to call exterminator?

No need yet: You have done the biggest part of cleaning up but eggs can persist in your environment. This is especially true if you have pets. So a big part of control is your pets too. Fleas also can live outside and if you have done everything you can and still have a flea problem it might be from outside. ...Read more

I had an EKG at home for life insurance. The tech came, a second time, the first set of results not ok because of disturbance/intfererenc. Erratic.?

Ekg: The ekg equipment used in portable recordings can have poor quality (as can high end equipment). Usually this is because of poor contact between the skin and ekg electrodes. Other times the waveforms recorded have artifacts due to movement or other interferences. I often come across such issues on a daily basis and a repeat ekg request is nothing to be alarmed about ...Read more

Cover it: These can be spread by spores that can shed from the skin. If you cover it and practice good hygienic patient contact skills it should not be a problem. You may want to get confirmation that it is not something more worrisome by seeing your doc if it doesn't respond to topical tinactin or similar antifungal within a few days. Peroxide does nothing. ...Read more

I have thoracic spinal spurs and my upper back is killing me after first time using weed whacker yesterday. What home pain relievers are recommended?

Pinched Nerve: The only OTC meds that you could try include ibuprofen, naproxen or tylenol (acetaminophen). Sounds like you have a pinched nerve in your back. I would suggest seeing a pain/spine specialist to evaluate you further to evaluate what level and what can be done to treat you. There are interventional treatments besides medications and surgeries that might reduce or eliminate the pain altogether. ...Read more

How often should someone who is on wafarin for the first time to disolve blood clots at home normally go to have their pt/inr level checked?

Warfarin: Protocols sometimes differ, but I ask my patients to check their inr 2x weekly until we get a good level 2 times, then once weekly a few more times, then once every 2 weeks a few more times, and then once monthly minimum. I increase the frequency again if I have to make any dose adjustments. The accp just recommended that stable patients can be checked every 3 months but I think that's too long. ...Read more

I suffer GAD. BP at home & pharmacy high at first reading 138/85. 5 mins later 115/75, almost identical 3rd time. Disregard 1st? Walking heart attack?

They're all right: Blood pressure goes up and down and can vary like that. Most importantly the first number you're noting is "high" really isn't. I don't know what GAD is but there's nothing here that should make you think you're a walking heart attack. Sounds like you need to stop checking your BP so frequently though. ...Read more

However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days.
