3 yo just threw intense temper tantrum. He was crying so hard he couldn't breathe and refused to walk. He got lots of sleep but he's exhausted. Worry?

Tantrums normal at 3: Tantrums are quite normal and expected at 3 years of age! Be sure he is in a safe place and won't injure himself and let the storm pass. In general you want to ignore tantrum behavior and continue to reward your child's positive behaviors as you go through the next year. The tantrums should lessen within the year. As long as the refusal to walk resolves after the tantrum I am not concerned. ...Read more

What makes blisters enough to walk a long distance better?

What makes blisters enough to walk a long distance better?

Common sense: With injury to our skin, inflammation occurs which means the area becomes red, warm, tender and with swelling. Swelling occurs under the skin layers and causes them to bulge creating a protective fluid cushion called a blister. As the area heals, the fluid will be resorbed or when no longer needed, the blister opens and it drains. This should take about a week. Keep it covered and protected. ...Read more

My primary doctor me my right kidney has a small area that is enlarged....i notice when I walk a long distance it hurts?

My primary doctor me my right kidney has a small area that is enlarged....i notice when I walk a long distance it hurts?

Probably not from it: Dear UEverett, if the area is indeed small, if very unlikely that this is the reason for your pain, even if it feels close to the right kidney area. There are several other muscular structures around the area that are probably the cause of the pain. I personally would not blame the pain on the kidney and I would continue looking for other reasons if it is impairing your run. ...Read more

My calf muscles tighten too the point I can't hardly move whenever I walk a long distance. What's wrong and what can I do to fix this?

My calf muscles tighten too the point I can't hardly move whenever I walk a long distance. What's wrong and what can I do to fix this?

Lactic acid: Lactic acid is likely building up in your muscles, causing the muscle spasm and tightening. This occurs when you start to burn substances other than glucose during activity. With a long walk, you may not have enough water on board to burn glucose, or you may not have enough energy in the form of carbohydrates to supply your system with enough glucose so eat fruit as you walk and drink lots of water. ...Read more

I have calf pain for 4 days. Its mild and only when I walk. No swelling or redness. I had a long distance travel. Ahould I be worried about blood clot?

Better safe than. ..: I an not sure what is meant by "had a long distance travel". If it means that you have been walking a lot, then perhaps you have a sore tendons and calf muscle. In that case, time will heal the tissues. If you have calf pain and have not been walking, then you should have your leg evaluated by a doctor for an inflamed blood vessel or a possible clot. ...Read more

I notice on my nightly walks my eyes get very teary, as if I've been crying. Effect is more pronounced when I close my eyes for a couple seconds. Why?

Dry eyes!: Most likely due to dry eyes, the outdoor environment drys the eyes out and natural response (reflex mechanism) is to make an abundance of tears. This overwhelms the natural tear drainage dysyem and causes the tears to run down your cheeks, easpecially when closing the eyes, because the tears are all brought together in one small space by the eyelid closure. ...Read more
