National Down Syndrome Day
My heart rate runs between 120- 140bpm during 30 minute run. Cool down it goes to 95-101. I average 10 incline and 4.8 mph. Good pace? My % runs 70-80
How do you feel?: This sounds like a reasonable regimen - how do you feel during and after you run? If you have not had a stress test recently, you should see your doctor to discuss this. It helps to see you ECG and exercise tolerance in a monitored setting. Also, does your heart rate slow down in the later evening? Monitor these and share with your doctor soon! ...Read more
Pre diabetic with 4 times loo visit at night, must cut down on fruit, which has the highest sugar level.?
Glycemic index: Avoid fruits with a high glycemic index - these fruits raise blood sugar fast and are not good for diabetics or pre-diabetics. There are great lists online that have the glycemic of all foods, not just fruits. Dates, watermelon, raisins, any canned fruit in syrup, cherries, mangos, bananas - try to avoid. I'd also avoid any fruit juice (even if "natural") - stick to water instead! ...Read more
Took at least one 8+ hour flight per year in the past. Then 911, dollar decline, etc. At 60 are there new risks from plane travel?
My friend is 6'1" and 110 pounds, with a BMI of 14.5, runs 3 miles per day along with Yoga. Is he headed down a dangerous path?
Sounds good: "Body mass index" was never intended to be applied to individuals, though in non-athletes it is a crude measure of obesity / malnutrition. If your friend is light-framed and has this level of athleticism, stop worrying and be glad for his good health. The stuff about "low BMI people die sooner" just reflects the high mortality of cancer patients, deteriorated alcoholics and so forth. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My pulse rate in the evening runs 58-64 per min. In morning, pulse runs 48-54 per minute..I do run 6 day's a week in the fl heat is this normal?
For you, may be ok: Very athletic and healthy people can have a lower resting heart rate. The Professional bike rider, Lance Armstrong in his prime, had a resting heart rate in the 40's. As long as you have no symptoms, you stay fit and in good shape, you should be fine. If you get any symptoms of fatigue, lethargy, tiredness, shortness of breath, lightheadedness, etc. than you need to se the Dr. Good luck. ...Read more
Sudden significant left hip pain that increases when walking and as day progresses. Interrupting sleep. Usually walk 10k per day up and down hills?
I lift weights 4/5 times a week.is 4 liters of water too much?im exhausted from drinking that much,i wake up 3 times from sleep.whats the minimum?
For you, maybe...: Drinking plenty of water each day, even up to 4L per day at your age has been shown to reduce your chance of chronic kidney disease later in life by 2.5x. However, the danger in your case is that you are on quetiapine, that may put you at risk of hyponatremia (low sodium in the blood). So drink during the day, and just make sure you get your blood checked periodically by your doctor. ...Read more
In bed last night, heart rate increased and stayed that way for an hour or so, average 95 bpm resting. woke this morning with migraine, related??
Headache, lack sleep:
Having a poor night's sleep is a likely link between the headache and what occurred overnight.
Generally we would consider a heart rate up to 100 to be normal. If it was going well over this or you felt it was irregular this may be worth getting an ECG (heart tracing) for. Presume you already passed through menopause? This could be another link. ...Read more
I drink more than 3 drinks per day on average (working on cutting down). I took 1 325mg Acetaminophen pill this morning at 8AM. Any concerns of OD?
No: Even small amounts of alcohol daily may affect the liver and while taking acetaminophen of that amount may not cause an overdose, it may be dangerous for you if you have liver problems. I commend you on your effort to cut down,but more help may be needed. Your local AA is a good place to start for excellent support. There are also inpatient and outpatient rehab centers all over the country. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
When sitting at school my heart rate ranges from 75-120bpm, but lying down at home it ranges from 68-80bpm. Why is it higher at school?
wake up at night with spasmic pain in the anus @ night every few monthsLasting few mins, earlier relief when bending. M,31,healthy,Levator syndr?!
Ouch!: Since ano-rectal spasm, while very painful, doesn't last long, medication isn't too helpful. Sitting on "the throne" and straining as if you were trying to have a bowel movement may help. It works the same way as flexing your ankle does if you get a Charlie Horse in your calf: by actively stretching the contracted, cramping muscles. What you describe is typical for levator ani syndrome. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Weeks of HR increase of 25+ lying to standing. From the 50's and reach 120 just walking across room. Looked at POTS but BP goes up not down. Hydrated.
Male 22. I have postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome. Heart rate goes to 100 when i stand. Will regular excercise bring it down at all?
It should help: There is a long list of therapies and medications used in pots, partly because no single approach has been found to work in all patients, but one important component of treatment is regular exercise to improve cardiovascular conditioning. That, combined with increased fluid and salt intake, as well as medications as determined by your md will be your best bet to improve your symptoms. ...Read more
