I have heavy arms and legs and pressure in the back of my neck for almost 2 years?

Neurologist: I would recommend seeing a neurologist. The heaviness sensation is vague and hard to sort out sometimes but it can be what's called "functional weakness".

Hello. I started working out in 2013, then I stopped working out altogether. 3 years later, my arms and legs look smaller and I gained weight. Why?

Hello. I started working out in 2013, then I stopped working out altogether. 3 years later, my arms and legs look smaller and I gained weight. Why?

That's what happens: When we exercise less, our muscles get smaller and weaker. When we continue eating more calories than we use up each day, the extra is stored as fat (awaiting the day we have a famine and need to use the stored fat). That's how nature works. To reverse this, one can just eat or drink FEWER calories than is being used each day, and resume exercising. ...Read more

Why is it that when I gain weight, my arms and legs continue to get bigger but my breast are still the same size?

Why is it that when I gain weight, my arms and legs continue to get bigger but my breast are still the same size?

Glandular tissue...: Breast tissue is mostly glandular tissue rather than fatty tissue. The glandular tissue is designed to produce milk and only enlarges as a result of hormonal stimulus such as occurs during pregnancy. Gaining weight won't cause the glandular tissue in the breast to enlarge. Best wishes! ...Read more
