I'm experiencing pain on the top of my foot and the arches and sometimes a slight numbness after some time on the elliptical...How can this be solved?
Check your shoewear: You may want to look at the type of shoes you are wearing. Sometimes undersized shoes, tight laces or thick socks can contribute to overall compression of blood flow or nerves to the foot. Cramping from restrictive circulation can cause pain in the arch. If your symptoms do not improve with simple corrective measures then consult your doctor for further evaluation. ...Read more
What kind of excercise can I do with a sprained (possibly fractured) foot? How long should I wait before running or using the elliptical?
Upper body: If you have a feeling that your foot is fractured or sprained you should see a doctor and get it diagnosed and treated. It is reasonable to use pain as your guide as to what you can do or not do. In general, upper extremity exercises can be done seated, and non impact activities like swimming are doable. Sprains usually heal in 2-6 weeks, fractures in 6-8 weeks. Once again pain is your guide. ...Read more
My knees are giving me trouble so I've had to resort to using ellipticals. Now the problem is that my toes/foot get numb. What's the issue?
I was on the elliptical, I get on it barefoot. I think it's causing a vein pain on top of my foot. It feels like pressure on my vein and it hurts?
Needs evaluation.: A tender bulging vein suggests an inflammation of the vein which is called superficial thrombophlebitis. This can be to localized trauma or to even a poorly fitting shoe. Whether or not the pain is the cause of your discomfort, you should be evaluated by a vein specialist. The foot pressure that you feel may not be due to veins at all but to something else. ...Read more

Bunion Surgery (Right foot), 10 weeks ago, I able to only walk for 3 hours before it swells (nothing vigorous), is elliptical machine better?
More Healing.: Your swelling is likely due to the severity of the bunionectomy. Generally the more work done to correct the problem the longer it takes to make a full recovery.

Breast nodule: I assume this is a breast nodule? Lesions with these features rarely turn out to be malignant. This sounds like it could be a fibroadenoma, a benign nodule. I don't know the time interval between the 2 ultrasounds (6 months?) but the nodule is essentially stable. Continued follow up is probably most appropriate, unless there are other factors in play (e.g. It is symptomatic). ...Read more

Happy exercising! ...Read more
Should you continue to work out when you are sick? Or will that make your cold last longer? I use a elliptical
I worked out on an elliptical for the first time in years. Right after and for several days now I have been feeling kind of sick. Over exertion?
Ill after exercise: May be over exertion or dehydration post work out or reflux or unrelated ill. If you drink a lot of water you can dilute your sodium so you should always alternate water with gatorade/juices, rarely rhabodmyolysis which is seen in marathon runners (so you would have had to be on the elliiptical 1.5-2 hours). Since it is persisting seek medical attention today at doctor/urgent care ...Read more
