Doctor insights on:
I'm going out for saint patricks day with my kids dad. I know i'll b having more than one drink & smoke. How many days do I not have to breastfeed?
48-72 hours: Certainly, you can pump in advance to take over the few days you will have to assure any alcohol or cigarette carcinogens are out of your system, but too bad you can not just hold off on the smoking and alcohol for this one year? If you do decide the former course of action, do not forget to pump for those days off too, so your breasts stay lactating. Good luck. ...Read more

Clean wound: Wash out your wound w/lots of water. Make sure you're not still bleeding. Make sure everything still works, eg you can still touch & feel as well as bend joints & pick up things. Assuming that it's a shallow cut w/o exposing tendons, nerves, bone, heck, even muscle, you might be ok at home. Still, you'll need to check for your last tetanus shot. Anything over 5yrs should be updated. ...Read more
Body mass index: We don't focus much on age & gender when calculating body mass index or bmi which is what we use to determine normal, overweight & obesity. Check out http://www. Nhlbi. Nih. Gov/guidelines/obesity/bmi/bmicalc. Htm. Going backwards, you can weigh as little as 105# (bmi=18.5) or as much as 140# (bmi=24.8) but more importantly, you want a predominance of muscle, rather than being all fat. Fitness is key. ...Read more

Irritability: It sounds like an emotional problem, although there is a slight chance it is neurological.

It feels like I'm being pricked with a pin all over my body, does this have to do with my nerves?
Probably Nerves: The pin-pricking sensation you're experiencing could be due to a number of different causes. Something simple, like a medication reaction can cause paresthesia (the term for a sensation despite the absence of a stimulus). Paresthesias can be due to vitamin deficiencies, supplement overdoses, metabolic disturbances or neurological conditions. I would recommend a neurological evaluation. ...Read more
