Have your BP checked: Your blood pressure perhaps may be dropping when you're taking a shower and when you suddenly stand up. Have someone check your blood pressure on a lying position, then 5 minutes later on an upright position. If there's a drop in either systolic or diastolic pressure by 10-15 mm hg, you could have orthostatic hypotension. Go see your dr for a thorough exam. ...Read more

I have an inflamed anus due to prostatitis.I been told to take a sitz bath. I now have jacuzzi   that i sat in for 15 minutes. How hot can the water be? Is 101 too hot?

It's fine: Hot baths are a good idea for this problem. 101° is not typically too hot and permissible. Most people seem to shoot for baths around 102° to 104°. Anything beyond this becomes pretty uncomfortable. Let comfort direct what you do. ...Read more

Why do I have a hard time breathing hot air under a blanket, in a car with the heater on, or when chest is submerged in hot water (jacuzzi or bath)?

Why do I have a hard time breathing hot air under a blanket, in a car with the heater on, or when chest is submerged in hot water (jacuzzi or bath)?

Sometimes humidity: Generally this may have to do with the water tension in the air. So hot dry air or hot moist air can be more difficult to breath in for some people. Typically patients with breathing problems (asthma, emphysema) do better with warm moist air (but not hot). Try saline nasal spray before entering the hot or dry environments. ...Read more

Surgery/orthopedist: I am going to assume that knee dislocation in your case is knee cap dislocation. If your knee caps are dislocating multiple times and you have exhausted conservative measures such as therapy and bracing then you should strongly consider surgery to realign your knee caps. Discuss this with an orthopedic surgeon specializing in knee reconstructive surgery/sports to discuss your surgical options. ...Read more

Are there any health benefits of a warm bath? Any side effects?

Are there any health benefits of a warm bath? Any side effects?

See you suffer: From anxiety. A warm soaker bath can help to relieve stress & can be part of good bed time routine to aid with insomnia (especially when lavender is added). One problem - you can come out of the tub with prune- like skin. Also, prolonged heat in a soaker is not healthy during pregnancy. Dehydration can occur & if you soak in a full tube with alcohol on board - you could fall asleep & drown. ...Read more

I came out of a warm bath tub and my vision went all blurry, then it quickly returned to normal. What happened?

Many things: Most probably is low blood pressure. Warm water dilates blood vessels and lowers blood pressure. Being submerged in water can also lower blood pressure. Less likely, patients with optic nerve inflammation (optic neuritis and patients with multiple sclerosis -ms) will have dim vision when their body temperature rises. This is called uhthoff's syndrome. ...Read more

Keep vomiting after a nice warm bath?

Keep vomiting after a nice warm bath?

Sorry it didn't help: A nice warm bath is a good idea to help deal with many unpleasant symptoms: ease pain, aid sleep, reduce stress, help a cold (steam)...but I don't think helping nausea & vomiting would typically be expected. There are many causes of vomiting: pregnancy, viruses, food poisoning, meds, motion sickness, etc. If able, drink clear liquids, avoid solid food, then BRAT: bananas, rice, applesauce, toast ...Read more
