My 4 week baby breath so hard when she drinks milk, it all happens while she is drinking during sleep?

My 4 week baby breath so hard when she drinks milk, it all happens while she is drinking during sleep?

Confusing question: Babies depend on their open nasal passages to breathe normally. If baby must stop feeding to do some breathing or seems to work harder to breathe during feedings, she needs her nose cleaned of any mucous or irritant debris. Dust, smoke & fragrances, make it hard for babies & saline nose rinse is your best rx. I don't know of any babies that drink during sleep, but many sound bad if congested. ...Read more

I always get an aching headache for an entire day after a hard strenuous cardio workout. It goes away during sleep. What is happening with the brain?

Hard to say!: Are you drinking enough water? Did you eat before your work out? You may need to have a small low-protein snack like an orange or two, 30-60 minutes before you exercise to make sure you have enough energy to fuel your routine. Also, dehydration can cause headaches. If drinking more water and during workout and a small snack does not help, check with a doc to find out what's up. ...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

My body temp is higher than normal at night during sleep, one time in the 100s. I'm a healthy 30 y.O., no smoking or drinking and my BP is fine. Why?

My body temp is higher than normal at night during sleep, one time in the 100s. I'm a healthy 30 y.O., no smoking or drinking and my BP is fine. Why?

Diurnal variation: Human body sets it's temperature levels so the lowest (normal) temperature is in am, & highest (normal) temperature is at night. Normals vary among individuals, but in a given individual the temperature setting is rather constant. So your normal is 100 at night and perhaps 98 in am. Someone else maybe 96 in am & 98 at bedtime.

I'm taking biral but still can't sleep through out the night, I have random break downs during sleep or during the day. Should I up the dosage or sto?

Improve sleep: Taking supplements to fix your sleep is not the cure. To improve your sleep the biggest question to ask is why are you unable to sleep in the first place. Do you snore at night or have difficulty breathing? Do nightmares keep you up? Perhaps it is too much caffeine or lack of exercise. Sometimes people have cannot turn off their brain and thus can't relax enough to sleep. ...Read more

Why does dermatographic (or idiopathic chronic) urticaria tend to get worse at night / before & during sleep? When I wake up, it's much less severe.

Why does dermatographic (or idiopathic chronic) urticaria tend to get worse at night / before & during sleep? When I wake up, it's much less severe.

Chronobiology: When one wakes up, the body is pumped with with epinephrine (norepinephrine) and steroid to prepare for hunting or gathering. These agents need to be mostly shut off at night to allow you to fall asleep. Since both of these agents counter itching and hives, they can account for what you have observed. There may be other factors involved but this is the simplest explanation. ...Read more

I have a baby 7 month 7 days, I don't know why he always cry at night during sleeping?

Probably separation: As most infants reach 6-9 mo they become aware of how important their primary caregivers are to their happiness & well being. At that point their brain doesn't usually let them understand that people they don't see are still around. If baby is awake as you check them at night and settles immediately when they see you this is likely. Some babies just fuss as they drift thru sleep stages to settle. ...Read more

Hello sirs how can I control my thoughts at night during sleep to prevent anxiety. I have meditation but wasn't able to control them?

Sleep Hygiene: Shutting down your brain at night is easy for some, but difficult for others. If you already use meditation, try pmr (progressive muscle relaxation).I recommend a 20 minute guided pmr--many are found on itunes, such as one by dr. Beth salcedo. In addition, there are many books out there written about how to have good "sleep hygiene"--the art of getting good rest. ...Read more
