Feeling full but still feeling want to eat , but i keep on eating  is this okay to keep eating  ..is it a sign of growing or having growing spurt .i ?

?: I do not know your age, so I can't say much about whether this is a growth spurt. If you are 18 or older then I'd say this is definitely not a growth spurt. You mention "feeling full" but then "wanting to eat" which makes me think that you have an underlying behavioral component. If you feel full, my best advice is to stop eating! Perhaps investigate "wanting to eat" with a counselor! ...Read more

Is it normal to be tired after losing a lot of blood?

Is it normal to be tired after losing a lot of blood?

Absolutely...: Blood carries energy and oxygen to every cell in your body. When you've lost blood, it's like not having as many trucks to get the payload to the destination, and thus, you become tired. Try and rest more to decrease demand on your system, get lots of fluid, and eat a high iron diet so you can make new red blood cells to replace the ones you lost. If that's not helping, talk to your doctor. ...Read more
