When i work out i smell/taste this weird snot or booger smell. I'm average weight and I have asthma. Is there any way to stop this from happening?

Could be sinusitis.: An odd taste and smell is one of the less well-known signs of an infection in your sinuses. It's really important for persons with asthma because the same allergies that trigger asthma very often trigger blockage in the nose that leads to sinus infection. Other signs include headache, facial pain and cough, sore glands or sore throat. And sinusitis makes asthma worse. Go see your doc. ...Read more

I can smell but I cannot taste. I thought they were connected if you could smell you could taste what is going on? is it in my brain the problem?

I can smell but I cannot taste. I thought they were connected if you could smell you could taste what is going on? is it in my brain the problem?

Unusual, has answers: Smell is carried by cranial nerve 1. Taste is carried by cranial nerves 7,9,10 (and some branches of 5). Smell ends up more in the frontal lobe, taste more in the insula (lateral). Most of taste is related to smell (loosing smell blunts taste a lot), not vice versa. Need evaluation for types of taste loss (separates CN 7,9,10) and other findings. Depending on history, MRI scan may be needed. ...Read more

Different reasons: Some medications like Celexa and Zoloft (sertraline) can make it difficult to impossible to achieve orgasm. If you are not on any medications then make an appointment with your gyn or pcp to talk about it and if it is a physical or psychological issue and they can help you fix the issue. ...Read more

Vigina farting this is embarising as I have this air boubles coming from my vagina especially before & after my menstiation period if you walk stand up or move it souns like you are farting i really do not know what to do what can the reson be also when

Air : Air pushed out of your vagina sounds a lot like someone passing gas. In addition to this, the fact that water gets trapped in your vagina and is slowly released after a bath leads me to believe you have a malformation in your hymen. The hymen is a membrane that surrounds or partially covers the external vaginal opening and is usually torn or dilated after having sex for the first time, riding a bike or horse, and often times during sports or other physical activity. You may have torn it in such a way that air and water is getting stuck behind it resulting in your symptoms. Please see a gynecologist for an evaluation. If this is the problem then a minor surgical procedure should correct it, or your doctor may say have more sex if you are sexually active. Good luck. ...Read more

Recently whenever i go to bathroom my urine is yellow, just want to know if its a good sign or not?

Recently whenever i go to bathroom my urine is yellow, just want to know if its a good sign or not?

Probably okay: Yellow is generally considered a normal color for urine. Red, brown, or black urine is *not* normal. If it seems more yellow than usual, it could be a sign that it is more concentrated. Be sure to drink plenty of water and keep an eye on things. If something still seems off, i'd recommend a visit to your doctor to do a check up and test your urine. ...Read more
