Generally, if you go back to regular exercising, your body will return to its usual conditioned state, and your energy level will return to normal.

I have dry cold sensation at the back of throat after heart burn this problem start. It's very annoying and I can't sleep from two days?

GERD: Sounds like you're having acid reflux while sleeping. If you notice heartburn at night, I would use antacids such as Tums (calcium carbonate). Avoid any foods that you notice bring on the problem. Cut back on caffeine and alcohol, and stop smoking if you do. I would consider tilting the head of my bed. If these maneuvers don't work, see your doctor for some medication. Good luck. ...Read more

TREAT THE PROBLEM: Alganax is another term for xanax (alprazolam) which is not typically for sleep. So the question really is why can you not sleep? Is it caffeine, is it drugs, is it depression, is it bipolar disorder. Get an evaluation and treat the cause not the symptom. ...Read more

My right nipple is constantly hard, sore, and tingling (like arm going to sleep) for 2 days. Could it be an allergic reaction to my new birth control?

My right nipple is constantly hard, sore, and tingling (like arm going to sleep) for 2 days. Could it be an allergic reaction to my new birth control?

Less Likely Allergy: Most likely, this is a reaction to the hormonal changes the new birth control is making since the goal of the meds are to alter the normal hormonal cycle by changing the levels. Call you doctor or pharmacist to see if it is a normal reaction to the medication - since it is new it may be that it will improve with time. ...Read more

I took 1 50mg Zoloft pill. Can't sleep going on 2 days now. Can I take any over the counter sleep aids? Please help me as I have a newborn to tend to

Sleep aid = band-aid: Zoloft is known to occasionally cause this problem, particularly early on in treatment.

I wouldn't provide you with advice, aside from directing you to your doctor: discuss the current dose, time of dosing or potentially dividing the dosing with your doctor. The potential of a switch to a less activating antidepressant could also take place with your doctor. Sleep aid is a band aid. ...Read more
