Heart rate recovery: Heart rate recovery of >25bpm at 2 minutes post is normal. Possibilities for positive troponin includes: supply-demand mismatch with microvascular disease, myos- or peri-carditis, takosubo syndrome (broken heart syndrome) or transient embolus. Make sure you are well hydrated when exercising. Take it a bit easy if this nstemi (postive troponin) recently happened. ...Read more

Is a little bit of itching from methylprednosolone ok? No rash just itching. Just bothers me 2 days ago I ended up in the ER from a fire ant byte feeling great now! Was prescribed methylprednisolone. With some other stuff

Itching: Where is the itch all over? Or near the bites? Those fire ant bites can itch quite a bite and as the dose of steroids is tapered down you will start feeling them more. Doubt your itching is from the medication. Try to take an antihistamine to see if it helps. ...Read more

Do people who smoke mary jane really get dumber?

Actually some very: Smart folks smoke mj, but they act very dumb while under the influence. They think they are profound and brilliant, but they really are just stoned. Many not so smart people smoke, and they do not get any brighter afterward. It can be psychoaddictive and can tempt you to smoke and do nothing else. That is indeed not productive, if not dumb. ...Read more

After f.B.S.S how can I get fusion pain under control?

Several ways: First, be checked to see if ongoing pain is not do to something that was not addressed, or not fully addressed by surgery or whether you failed to heal the fusion. Rarely, in males especially, a solid posterior fusion does not always address pain from a disc that can still bear load & cause pain if no interbody fusion. Adjacent segments should be checked.

My babys rectal temperature is 99 F do I need to minus 1 degree from it for actual reading?

My babys rectal temperature is 99 F do I need to minus 1 degree from it for actual reading?

Not if...: If a thermometer is calibrated for rectal temperatures, then the 99 degrees is accurate and no adjustment is needed. If the thermometer is calibrated for oral or axillary temperatures, it might automatically add 1-2 degrees to what it senses, and thus display an incorrectly high reading (because it thinks it is in the mouth or armpit, when in fact you've put it in the rectum). ...Read more

I always fall in love with men lot older than me, I'm 23 year old f and I fall in love with a men that's 60 years old. Something wrong with me?

Nothing's wrong: There's nothing necessarily wrong, but you might find certain difficulties in interests to share or other problems. If you do, that's a reason for some couple's therapy. It can happen w/ men you age or younger too. Just as some same sex attractions where it is a choice, you have a right to your choice. If you can't understand your choice, therapy may help you figure it out. If it's good, enjoy it. ...Read more

I am 23 years old. Will I grow more inches taller at this age if I practice stretching exercises? I f yes. For how many minutes must I do them?

No: Bone growth occurs at a part of the bone called the growth plate (near the ends of the bones). The growth plates "close" (basically disappear) in men between the ages of 18-21. After that time there is no way to grow taller. Stretching may improve your posture to help you stand more straight but it is not possible to grow any taller. ...Read more

Love to help but..: This is a very complex topic to address in 400 characters, I would encourage you to consider setting up a live consult with one of the physicians to create a more defined, understandable plan. The basics of weight loss do focus on being mindful of your caloric balance as in calories you eat and calories you burn, but what contributes to both can be rather complex. In the end I wish you good luck ...Read more
