Behavior: Your child, unfortunately, has developed bad behavior patterns. You could invest in mental health careened/or sedation dentistry. If no amount of coaxing, explaining, reasoning is successful, I'm afraid you will have to go the expensive route. ...Read more

About 2 weeks ago I couldn't stop coughing and getting fevers. Now my singing voice has changed and everything I sing my voice cracks. How do I fix it?

About 2 weeks ago I couldn't stop coughing and getting fevers. Now my singing voice has changed and everything I sing my voice cracks. How do I fix it?

Rest your voice: You probably have some inflammation of your vocal cords. I would rec. Resting your voice for at least two weeks-- no singing. If you sound hoarse when talking, then rest it with speaking also. Whispering actually makes it worse, so just write or text. If you still hear cracking after two weeks, see your doctor for an exam of your vocal cords. ...Read more

19 year old male, and my ankles crack whenever I walk barefoot, but the don't hurt, what should I do?

19 year old male, and my ankles crack whenever I walk barefoot, but the don't hurt, what should I do?

Ankle crack: Often times it really is not the ankle joint that is "cracking" but the joint just below the ankle - the subtaylor joint. This is most often in patients with flat feet (heels are outside of the leg). A good arch support can help, sometimes a custom orthotic or brace. Sometimes surgery is required to realign the foot if that is what you have. See you local podiatrist and get to the bottom of this. ...Read more

Itz been almost 6 months that I can't sing well, never hapen like this before. When I sing my voice gets crack and my chest get tired?

Age ~16.5. Height 161 cm. Male. Maybe late puberty as the mustache just started growing also voice cracked 4 months ago. Need help to increase height.

Height: You can't control your height. You should certainly eat healthy food and exercise regularly to be healthy, but your height is primarily genetically determined. If you have late puberty and even a second growth spurt in the males in your family, you may continue to grow for a while, but there's no way to know for sure. Accept who you are. Be the best you you can be! ...Read more

Nah...: There is absolutely no medical reason that masturbating should change your testicular size. Perhaps the "cremasteric" muscle is contracting and giving that impression that testicles are smaller? I presume you are NOT using any anabolic steroids or hormonal medicines? This could cause testicles to atrophy. ...Read more
