Heaviness In Arms And Legs
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". That can occur as the result of a central nervous system problem. If your neck hurts then there may be some issue with the spinal cord at that level? No matter what, the neurologist can help sort it out. ...Read more

After a few sips of hard cider, I feel tingly, particularly in my arms and legs. Why? Not a heavy drinker, maybe 1-3/wk. Wine doesn't do this.
It's normal.: It's normal for every person to react differently to different alcoholic beverages. Factors such as sugar content in an alcoholic beverage or how much protein does it contain will affect the personal experience of drinking alcohol. Another possible factor could be related to poor tolerance/ allergies, to some ingredients present in one specific beverage. Moderation is always the key! ...Read more

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

What kind of weight lifting should I do at the gym to lose weight and make my arms and legs smaller?
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
