My job requires me to stand and walk the entire length of my 8 hour shift. Does this mean i don't get as tired as someone who works more hours?

My job requires me to stand and walk the entire length of my 8 hour shift. Does this mean i don't get as tired as someone who works more hours?

Question?: Since your job requires more walking and standing, you may actually tire more readily than someone who works longer hours but has a sedentary job. The good news is, since you are active in your job, that may help you with your overall health as you get more exercise than the usual person who has a more sedentary job. Bet wishes. ...Read more

Legs, arms, whole body feels heavy as lead after the pool, even if i barely exert myself in the water. takes hours to feel normal after.possibl cause?

Unusual symptoms : Its worth going to see a rheumatologist or family doctor. Your sx sound muscular/neurological/inflammatory and not your typical OA related joint pain. There are conditions such as Myasthenia Gravis that can cause weakness of upper and lower extremities. Your Dysautonomia can also cause fatigue. Just to be safe I would get it checked out. ...Read more

The joints in my arm ache terribly after flu shot to the point of tears, why and for how long will it last?

The joints in my arm ache terribly after flu shot to the point of tears, why and for how long will it last?

Should be temporary!: Since the flu vaccine may be the one with attenuated virus, that's weakened, it still can give you symptoms that are similar to a low grade flu without lasting long at all. However, you need to take it easy. The liquid injected displaces the skin/soft tissue until it's reabsorbed into your system. If there's a bruise there, or becomes hot, inflamed, call your doctor for a follow up visit to check. ...Read more

I know that HPV can leave the body in few years with immune system. What STDs also can leave the body & what doesn't ? And why if possible??

I know that HPV can leave the body in few years with immune system. What STDs  also can leave the body & what doesn't ? And why if possible??

It's complicated...: Even without treatment, some STDs are cleared in a few weeks or months, such as gonorrhea and chlamydia. But they still need treatment; they can leave a lot of damage if not treated. HPV is cleared, but it usually takes 1-2 years, and HPV DNA persists and infection can reappear. STDs that last indefinitely include syphilis, herpes, hepatitis B, HIV. The biological reasons are complex. ...Read more

You need to seek out mental health help to address that you are cutting yourself and what are the underlying issues. Self-injury is an unhealthy way to cope with emotional pain, intense anger and frustration. ...Read more

Can a person whit laporiscope surgery in the stomach because had ulcera takes nutricional shake after 6 days of the surgery.

Ask your surgeon: That is entirely up to your surgeon. They should be the ones to assess how to advance your diet after surgery. In my own practice, I always defer to them after I send one of my patients to surgery. My guess is that it would be OK, but I can't be certain. ...Read more
