Im doing a tough mudder race on october, (10-12miles with 25 military obstacles designed by british military forces) should I take any multivitamin?
Probably: Vitamins are important for you to get through your diet. If you feel you do not get the necessary daily requirements through a balanced high content of plant based diet, its best to take a multivitamin each day regardless of tough mudder race or not. In general, use a high quality multi vitamin tablet such as new chapter brand as insurance to ensure you get your daily vitamins and minerals. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Should i play pond hockey without a hockey helmet? Does it matter whether I have boots or skates on?
Helmet recommended: Wearing a helmet may help in preventing some injuries to the head. It will not completely prevent concussions, but it may help in decreasing the impact from a stick or fall. Depending on how aggressive you play it probably doesn't matter boots or skates. Of course you have to be careful of thin ice. ...Read more

No limitations: The short answer is that breast implants should not limit your lifestyle.

My 2 yo was in front of shopping cart. Bros jumped on cart & knocked it forward to ground. Don't think he hit head or very lightly. No crying. Worry?

Generally if no loss of consciousness, child is herself/himself, then just observation should be enough. However, if the child shows any odd behivior, then an emergency evaluation would be wise. Most importantly remain calm! ...Read more
School nurse needs advise on excusing girls from swimming during menses when student won't use tampons. Big pushback from PE staff.
Oh my.....: Teaching staff absolutely cannot dictate a girl's choice in this matter. Humiliating a girl into wearing a tampon or bleeding everywhere is unacceptable. To deter abuse of the privilege by students, a good compromise may be not an excuse from PE, just from swimming. They can dress out in shorts/tee and sit poolside if needed to attend class.Forcible use of tampons is assault. Humiliation is abuse ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Ortho Eval needed: Seek evaluation by your orthopaedic surgeon. Along with a thorough examination of your ankle, X-rays would likely be obtained to assess for a potential loose body of osteophyte that may make stair climbing painful. Instability or ankle looseness would also be assessed as the anterior and lateral aspect of the ankle is where the main stabilizing ligaments are located. ...Read more
