This : This could be the start of your period (coming a little early), often times the blood at the beginning and end of the cycle for that matter can be brown in color. The fact that your back hurts and abdomen hurts as well may mean that you are dealing with a urine or even kidney infection. If your symptoms are still present, please see your doctor right away for examination, testing and treatment as deemed necessary. Best of luck and happy new year. ...Read more

You are okay. Do not worry about secondary drowning.
Wish you 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. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. 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, if you have sex.

Drowning...: During drowning, the airways are filled with fluid so air exchange cannot happen. So, carbon dioxide cannot be removed and oxygen cannot get into the lungs. Therefore, oxygen cannot circulate to the rest of the body including the brain, the heart, the kidneys, etc. If the body is deprived of oxygen long enough, death can occur. ...Read more

My 3 week old choked/strangled on vit D drops. If it got into her lungs, what will happen? Could it cause something like pneumonia or dry drowning?
Not really: It's unlikely that you will notice any sequelae from this little event. The reason we cough and "choke" - it's our body's way of protecting itself and trying to keep stuff out of the lungs. Even with this protection sometimes, rarely stuff will get by, but most of the time actually nothing ever occurs. The tiny amount of medicine given for infant Vit D drops is inconsequential. Relax. It's okay. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What causes palpitations and heart flutters, like your heart is dropping in your chest or like it's drowning?
Skipped beat: Sounds like you're describing a Premature Ventricular Contraction (PVC), which feels like a short pause, followed by a single stronger beat. They're very common among otherwise healthy people and can be reduced by avoiding stimulants, such as caffeine. See a heart rhythm specialist (cardiac electrophysiologist) for further evaluation and to ensure your heart is healthy. ...Read more
Air is essential: You need air to live. A fish "drowns" in air. There are circumstances in which the oxygen is out of the air such as a closed garage with a motor runnjng (carbon monoxide poisoning) or for instance volcanic craters in which gas from the fumarole displaces the air. Luckily we mostly have normal, livable air around us. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Since drowning is unusual and can only happen if you go in water, you can overcome your fears by choosing to not be afraid. ...Read more
