Is It Okay To Pickup Heavy Stuff While Having Scholiosi
Is it healthy to take a shower while having periods? I heard that when a woman is on her periods should not take a shower because it causes uterine swelling & swelling never goes away. Is it true? Or is it healthier to be clean & take a shower during that
Think I'm on period but having very heavy discharge so heavy finding it hard to clean. This is not usual for me any help would be great.
Heavy menses: My best advice is to have a gynecologist evaluate you. You will benefit from having a pelvic exam, blood testing, and likely an ultrasound to make sure we determined the cause. I do recommend avoiding aspirin or aspiring containing medications while on your period and 1 week before to avoid excess bleeding. If you have to change your pad/tampon every hour on the hour please go to your ER. ...Read more

I take l-argenine for improved blood flow to the penis and it works! It aggravates my mild asthma some, but I tolerate it. Is it ok to keep taking?
Not a good idea: Endogenous nitric oxide (NO) is involved in the pathogenesis of asthma and can lead to inflammation and contraction of the airways. NO is actually produced by the metabolism of L-arginine. So if you are supplementing with this substance, you could in theory increase the NO in your body leading to worsening asthma symptoms. http://www.mayoclinic.org/drugs-supplements/arginine/safety/hrb-20058733 ...Read more

It : It is completely ok to shower during your period. Showering does not cause any harm. Just wash as you normally would. It is not recommended that you take a bath in the few weeks after you have had a baby since your cervix is still somewhat open from delivery and there is a slight possibility of infection, but showering is always ok. The only other thing that you do not want to do is douche. Douching washes out the healthy bacteria that live in your vagina allowing unhealthy bacteria or yeast to grow. ...Read more
Hi There! I just had a question as far as the body tissue that contracts is it normal for it to keep happening? Should I be taking anything OTC to help it from occurring? It's very painful while it contracts and then when it goes down I'm ok just extremel
1st. NormalOnlyMeans: capable of contraction & no human body muscles (except heart muscle, ~110 times/min without brain inputs) contract without a direct nerve fiber stimulus from the brain (most as signals relayed via the spinal cord). I.e. Body is an extension of the mind & brain. 2nd Normal only means common, no necessary relation with health/disease, good/bad. Avoid conflating issues. 3rd Your specific question? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It depends: It depends on what theory of resistance training you care to believe. I personally believe in the 'no pain, no gain' theory and i feel i did not put enough effort into the workout if I am not sore afterwards. I do not believe in the theory that your muscles somehow accommodate. To increase muscle size you have to break down existing muscle, hence the transient inflammation and pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it ok to take fruit & veggie detox while going to school? Is it possible i will be experiencing diarrhea?
No and Yes: No, there is no need to do a fruit and veggie "detox". One can just eat a healthy diet with lots of veggies (our bodies don't need to be deliberately "detoxed"). Yes, it's ok to eat a lot of veggies and some fruit while going to school, but try it on the weekend to see how much or how little one can tolerate without getting diarrhea. ...Read more
Is it ok to keep 16 hrs fast(due to my faith)about 15 hours after MRI with contrast.I m alowd to skip though if it is medicaly necesary.to skip fast.
Oral or IV contrast?: Oral contrast is sometimes given in MRI (e.g., MRCP) - in which case it shouldn't be considered "breaking fast" because it had a medical purpose. If the contrast was given intravenously, it's best to drink water & stay hydrated to help the kidneys flush it out. You don't need solid food, only liquids. Why was MRI done? Was eating advised based on the MRI diagnosis? Use HealthTap Prime since unsure ...Read more
