Medical history is: an important thing to keep in mind when creating a work out program. I see that you have a few medical conditions and encourage you to discuss your work out program w/your doc before you continue. Peace and good health. Ask him/her about Crestor, (rosuvastatin) which can cause muscle pain in some folks. There are natural ways to reduce cholesterol. Perhaps your doc can refer you to a natural doc for that. ...Read more

Is it normal to have a headache days after a d and c?

Is it normal to have a headache days after a d and c?

Normal no, usual yes: The hormonal effects can certainly trigger headaches or even migraines postpartum or after a d&c. If one adds the emotional/physical/social stressors, it is not hard to understand why this is common symptom. Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily, lift up your spirits, seek support from your loved ones and try getting pregnant again as soon as you feel ready. Best of luck! ...Read more

Low blood pressure: Sometimes blood pressures run low after a workout due to mild dehydration. We should consider other causes since any systolic pressure lower than 90 raises concerns, especially with symptoms. A CBC, BMP, TSH, free T4 and an xray, ECG-ECHO to check heart function is recommended. ...Read more

I recently lost a lot of muscle due to not eating properly for about a week. Now i feel soreness and quite weak. Is this normal ?

I recently lost a lot of muscle due to not eating properly for about a week. Now i feel soreness and quite weak. Is this normal ?

Muscle Fatigue: Generally, one should not lose a lot of muscle mass in a week of under eating, unless you really starved yourself. If you did, it is typical to experience soreness and fatigue, but, more cogently, it is important that semi-starvation for a week at a time is not a pattern that you plan to repeat. Once you resume a normal, healthy diet, your strength should return. If not, consult your doctor. ...Read more

After a week of dengue fever im still experiencing a headache and get light headed occasionally, is this normal?How long should I expect it to last?

It depends: As you know, dengue has three distinct phases - febrile, critical and recovery phases. It would be important to know where you are in the progression of this disease. Of course, not everyone has the same symptom complex at every phase of dengue. I do not find it alarming that you are still experiencing headache and light headedness one week out. However, you will want to consult with your doc. ...Read more

Difficult molar extr: I would suggest going back to your dentist and having him take an x-ray to evaluate. There can be a root tip remaining or bone fragment. Or its just taking more time to heal. Do you smoke? That can hinder healing and make it worse. ...Read more
