I am a long distance runner. I had an early stress fracture a month ago and have switched to biking. The pain is gone now. Is it safe to start running?

Depends: Usually, for most types of soft tissue wounds, heing is 90% complete by 6-8 weeks. For bony injuries, it's longer, on the order of 8-12 weeks. It depends on the location and severity if the stress fracture. Best to ask the doctor that made the diagnosis, or an orthopedic surgeon. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Core Exercises: Typically core strengthening exercises are the best to help relieve pressure and forces in the spine. I would try and google some or look them up on youtube to see descriptions. If you can do them yourself, wonderful otherwise ask your doctor to get a referral to a good physical therapist for further assistance. Hard to say when you can start running, usually when pain has subsided. ...Read more

Is there any medical reason for not being able to move after waking from a long way?

Is there any medical reason for not being able to move after waking from a long way?

Sounds like DOMS: A variant of delayed onset muscle soreness. If the walking was unusual or vigorous to you, like a new exercise, the response can be normal. While exerting your muscles, there is some microscopic tearing, and an inflammatory response to repair these tears. This is what makes you stronger. But if your exertion is suddenly great, you may get overwhelmed by the inflammatory response. Rest & ice. ...Read more

Been on omeprozole for a long time and weight has increased is this the reason and if istopped will weight return to normal?

Been on omeprozole for a long time and weight has increased is this the reason and if istopped will weight return to normal?

Not likely reason: Omeprazole is the generic name for the famous purple pill, prilosec--it's a good acid supressor known in the medical community as a proton-pump-inhibitor (ppi). There hasn't been any report showing wt gain as a side effect. For some, the reflux gets better so they feel they can eat more, hence the weight gain. If intake + activities=same for you and u still gain wt, consult doc for eval. Good luck. ...Read more

My boyfriend and I find it sexually satisfying for some reason when he urinates inside me, would this affect me long term? (e.G., reproductively?) etc

My boyfriend and I find it sexually satisfying for some reason when he urinates inside me, would this affect me long term? (e.G., reproductively?) etc

Well.....: Urine is sterile, but I suppose it could increase your chances of getting a vaginal infection in the same way that douching can cause a vaginal infection. It surprises me that he is able to do this. If he has an erection adequate for penetration, then it should be extremely difficult for him to urinate while he has the erection. ...Read more
