Overheating During Sleep Pregnancy
Is it ok to walk 3-4km a day roughly around 45mins 5 days a week in early pregnancy? Worried about overheating etc? Can it harm baby? 5wks right now
Yes, within reason: That amount of exercise should be OK, but obviously if it is too hot outside to do it safely, you need to hold off that day or find somewhere that you could walk indoors. I don't know the average temperatures in your piece of Australia at the very moment, but just take it into account. Congratulations on your pregnancy! ...Read more

According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
I'm aware that overheating my body is dangerous in pregnancy, but what if it's just my head? For example, putting my head under a very hot air dryer?
No problem...: Hair drying, with hot air from any kind of hair dryer, isn't going to cause any significant changes way down there in the uterus. ...Read more
Overheating pregnancy I'm 6wks. 85 degrees was sitting 1/2 in shade -back was in sun. Was 20 min some breeze. Starting sweat under arms & feeling hot. Got inside in air con. Could I have overheated enough to cause birth defect? Symptoms temp too high?
No, you're fine.: When a person gets warm, the body uses evaporation from sweating as a mechanism to cool off. You listened to your body's message that you were getting warm and made a good choice to get cooler. Always drink enough fluids as well to keep urine light yellow. In the first trimester women get lightheaded easily as their body adjusts to the increase in blood volume needed to support the placenta. ...Read more
I'm a woman approaching 40, on HCTZ 12.5 mg for about 6 months, but otherwise healthy. Ever since I was a kid, I get so hot when I sleep it wakes me up. Not night sweats, but so overheated! This happens year round and even if I feel cold when I fall aslee
Incomplete question.: Your question cut off. If you have not had thyroid function testing, that should be done. If your doc did not give you a reasonable explanation, ask for a referral for a second opinion. So people are just 'hot-natured.' Visit Alaska and see if you are comfortable there! ...Read more

It's normal: You are a young man in the prime of your sexuality. Unless you voluntarily have ejaculations with a partner or by yourself often, you are going to have nocturnal emissions. They're natural, normal, good for you, and if anybody has told you otherwise, they had either been deceived or were deceiving you for some dark purpose. Talk with a man you trust -- maybe even dad or your doctor. Best wishes. ...Read more
Nocturnal tingles: More often than not it is innocuous unless it is chronic and if it substantially disrupts sleep. Pressure on nerves like on the ulnar crease or funny bone can cause tingling along the length of the arm from the elbow down. Carpal tunnel syndrome more often affects the palms. Nerve compression in the neck area can prompt shoulder, neck and arm tingling. May be "sleeping wrong" on arm or kinked neck. ...Read more

I do this also: There may be several factors. It could be a response to the stresses in our lives. Some people clench and grind their jaws and teeth and some people exhibit their tensions elsewhere. Clenching my hands has exacerbated my carpal tunnel condition causing tingling in my hands. I now where a brace to help prevent me from clenching my hands. You may want to see a hand specialist, I did. ...Read more
Just to be clear: Maybe you don't mean it like this but the statement almost sounds as if you are equating the term APNEA with the act of SNORING.....I won't use the word "unconsciously" only because I don't believe there is such a thing as a CONSCIOUSLY SNORING individual who is at the same time asleep! LOL. Anyways, APNEA does not happen as a guaranteed consequence of snoring. A person who snores MAY have apnea. ...Read more
Bisectional: Your mind/body is only partially awake and that is why it reads terrors. Your conscious part is trying to call for action, for example, to move yourself out of the bed, but unfortunately, your leg muscles controlled by the unconscious part of your brain would not follow the call. You undoubtedly felt your legs are bound/confined etc. ...Read more
Paradoxical Sleep: Rapid eye movement or rem sleep in adult humans typically occupies 20–25% of total sleep, about 90–120 minutes of a night's sleep. Rem sleep normally occurs close to morning. During a normal night of sleep, humans usually experience about four or five periods of rem sleep; they are quite short at the beginning of the night and longer toward the end; also called paradoxical sleep. ...Read more
Assuming there is no other physical damage in the tmj, stress is usually the culprit for bruxism (grinding and clenching).
Mouthguards can help prevent tooth fractures by absorbing some of the pressure.
Hypnosis/meditation can help alleviate the stress/tension thereby reducing some of the cause of the bruxism. ...Read more
