Varied symptoms: Not sure that all of these things go together or that any one in and by itself has significance. Best to be medically evaluated by your family physician, and if no organic cause for your symptoms discovered perhaps referral to a mental health professional might be warranted. ...Read more

Is it ok to let my cat eat with me from same plate? Does it cause any problems?

Is it ok to let my cat eat with me from same plate? Does it cause any problems?

Don't do that: Cats, even when well, carry many diseases. Pregnant women must not empty a cat litter box because of the risks of exposure to toxoplasmosis.

Trying understand labs if neutr % is up will it bring down lymphs % down and by this happening will it effect the absolute counts in the same way?

Trying understand labs if neutr % is up will it bring down lymphs % down and by this happening will it effect the absolute counts in the same way?

Just simple math: If there are 10, 000 white blood cells, with 40% neutrophils and 30% lymphocytes, that means there are 4000 neut and 3000 lymph. The numbers are the machine's counting of what is in the blood. The numbers don't "do" anything. Likewise, if there are 1000 kids at school, 40% boys means 400 boys (if one leaves and is replaced by a girl, there will be 399 boys, or 39.9% boys, and 60.1% girls). ...Read more

Broke my leg doing a dismount. Others did the same dismount without a problem. Why did my leg break?

Physics: The wrong torque at the right moment will do it. I have seen many fractures in healthy people that seemingly should not have occurred but when the angles and forces and torques line up just right...Snap.

Will doing workouts daily, leads to stiff neck, I am suffering from it frequently. Please let me know the criticality & tips to over come the same.

Don't overdo things: I don't know your overall state of conditioning or how fast you are trying to push from one level to the next in terms of weight training or exercise capacitation. However, be careful with the neck. It can be much more easily sprained than other parts of the body with much less in terms of heavy loads. Stretch well, work up SLOWLY (over period of weeks or even months) increasing load on the neck ...Read more
