Dr. Jeff thanx so much. I am extremely nauseous tonight. No matter how much water I drink I don't feel better. I feel horrible. What shouldi do to ease it. I'm starting to think I really might be pregnant?

Use caution: Nausea can be a symptom of anything from overeating to appendicitis. If you could be pregnant, use caution with medicines until you can test. Simple remedies can include peppermint tea or ginger drops. If you have significant pain with nausea please consider being evaluated in person; there are a few dangerous problems like appendicitis or ectopic pregnancy that may warrant further measures. ...Read more

My name Jeff I have had a back surgery three weeks ago and are having problems peeing is this normal?

Maybe, maybe not: Unfortunately this is a difficult question to answer in general. It all depends on the type of surgery and what the precise location in the back the procedure was performed. If you have any concerns, they should really be relayed to your surgeon for further follow up. Every surgery has risk and complications, and those are very specific to the type of procedure. ...Read more

When we travel, especially west to east we are not aligned with the light in that time zone and our internal clock won't let us fall asleep sooner. Going west we can generally stay up later, but will have a tendency to wake up at our normal time which will be very early for the time zone we're in. ...Read more

Change your schedule: If you are young, less than 30 or so, a few hours difference won't bother you much. Going west is less of an issue than heading back east.

The further u travel, the more hours/days u need to change. Have fun wherever u r heading. Be safe and good luck. ...Read more

Not effective: Others have answered similar questions on healthtap, replying that penile size is not likely to be increased through this method.
