Hi ve had a pain on my chest in hurt in the s in the same place as my heart and its a pain that goes comes and goes, is it because I rest my laptop on?

Get it checked: Chest pain is something we always suggest you have checked right away., so call your doctor and explain what is happening. They will tell you where to go for evaluation. If you are young, and the pain changes based on your position and by pressing on it, then it is probably not your heart. Avoid heart disease by not smoking, exercising regularly, and eating a healthy diet. ...Read more

I had my laptop on my stomach for a long period of time and it got really hot is there a chance it raised my body temp to the point of miscarriage?

I had my laptop on my stomach for a long period of time and it got really hot is there a chance it raised my body temp to the point of miscarriage?

No.: Placing the laptop near the gravid uterus is not a good idea at all! It emits waves that can affect the early embryo due to proximity and it generates heat topically, which is a known teratogen. It should not cause miscarriage, however no studies have been done to assess this possibility. ...Read more

I'm having dull pain lower left abdomen for a week, now I feel it only when I am at rest, sitting and not while walking or doing something, any clue?

I'm having dull pain lower left abdomen for a week, now I feel it only when I am at rest, sitting and not while walking or doing something, any clue?

Anything: Most people think their whole abdomen is their stomach, but the stomach is in the upper middle or upper left of the abdomen. If your lower abdomen hurts, that could be your skin, muscles, bladder, uterus, or intestines. If the upper part of your abdomen hurts, it could be acid reflux, pancreatitis, or other problems. See a doctor for an assessment. ...Read more

Why would it be that my stomach is still huge when the rest of me is smaller?

Why would it be that my stomach is still huge when the rest of me is smaller?

Weight distribution: There is tendancy, particularly for some to carry weight in the midsection. This issue has been linked to more heart disease and metabolic derangements (such as glucose metabolism), compared to people that distribute more proportionally. Weight around midsection often requires build-up of muscle in that area and typical activities do not fix this. Need core exercises and muscle isolation. ...Read more

My gyno thinks my unborn baby has iugr cuz her abdomen isn't as big as it should be compared to the rest of her, how worried should I be?

Not enough info: A fetal ultrasound showing the abdominal circumference is smaller than expected is one way to diagnose iugr. How worried to be depends on other factors. Your doctor will be watching the fluid around the baby, non stress tests, baby's growth over time, blood flow in baby's blood vessels to know how your baby is doing. Speak with your doc and do the testing. Good luck! Most babies do fine. ...Read more

Sharp pain upper left side back. I got up in the middle of the night with sharp pain and can not get rest. I can't sleep on my back, stomach or sides?

Musculoskeletal: A twenties female with acute upper back pain absent fever or shortness of breath raises concern for muscle spasm. Most curiously, when weather gets cold many young adults wake with back and neck muscle spasms that take days and weeks to resolve. If a woolen nightshirt with a turtleneck, massage, icy hot, acupuncture, and rest do not help then see an osteopath. Should resolve in a few days. ...Read more
