It's it bad to eat raw rice? People say it will swell up and your stomach would burst is that true ?

Raw rice is not good: Raw rice will swell up when it absorbs the fluid that is in your stomach and your intestine.

Don't eat raw.i ...Read more

If you have 14mm abdominal aorta as a 23 yo, you will have thinner walls than if you had 2cm healthy aorta and so a weaker aorta. More prone to burst?

If you have 14mm abdominal aorta as a 23 yo, you will have thinner walls than if you had 2cm healthy aorta and so a weaker aorta. More prone to burst?

Just the opposite: Aortic aneurysms have a higher risk of rupture with increasing diameter. Generally they are treated expectantly with observation and antihypertensives if necessary until they become symptomatic (with pain or showering emboli distally), or enlarge greater than 5 cm. The two methods of fixing them are with a traditional operation or more recently, stent placement. ...Read more

If I stress my abdomen because of fear aorta will burst, during exercise, could it constrict when it should expand? How much can u thinking effect?

Your thinking affects your overall health, but is not going to act selectively on your abdominal aorta. ...Read more

Walking with my daughter and got a sudden burst of extreme pain in my abdomen from belly button down. What would cause it. Brought me to tears?

Musculoskeletal: Sudden, extreme pain is almost always caused by muscle irritation. That's the good news. You likely pulled an abdominal muscle, and these, especially the obliques, can be very painful. Put ice on area first 2 days, then switch to heat if pain persists. Do some gentle stretching exercises and avoid heavy lifting. Can use Ibuprofen if pain hard to tolerate. ...Read more

My stomach makes loud gurgling and popping noise feels like gas bursting..is it the intestines or stomach was tested for h.polyri but came bak negativ?

Feeling gassy & full: Feeling full of "gas" may reflect malabsorption of food (like gluten, lactose), intake of poorly digested food, or choosing foods known to promote gas (beans, fizzy drinks). Sometimes its more complicated--a stomach emptying too slowly, bacterial overgrowth syndrome, delayed intestinal function, partial obstruction from any cause, infection, rectum problems, and pelvic pathology outside the gut. ...Read more
