Your doctor may also suggest a safe exercise plan. Walking is usually the easiest type of exercise, but swimming or other low-impact exercises can work just as well. Exercise is an important way to keep blood sugar in control, and physical activity in pregnancy has been found to decrease the risk of developing gestational diabetes.

Dr. Clarke Holmes answered:

walking sore achille?

Tendonitis

Nsaids
It sounds as if you have Achilles tendonitis. Risk factors include overuse, a previous/recent injury to the tendon, poor/old footwear, tight or weak calf muscles, etc. Treatment includes relative rest, icing, new shoes, NSAIDs, gentle stretching of the calf muscles and strengthening of the calf. Specifically, eccentric strengthening (lowering the foot/ankle on a step) may be most effective.

what is walking peumonia?

Atypical

Walking
usually the term is used to refer to "atypical pneumonias" ( like the one caused by mycoplasma, etc) in which there is a dissociation between the xray impression and the clinical presentation, (too mild symptoms for such an xray image). They are usually treatable and most patients do just fine

Dr. Martin Raff answered:

What is walking pneumonia?

Walking pneumonia

Pneumonia
Generally a term which suggests that the patient can be treated as an outpatient rather than having to be hospitalized. It is a poor term to use because it neither defines the cause of the infection, the mechanism by which it occurred, or the type of therapy necessary.

Does walking induce labor ?

Many people say so

Obstetrics_and_gynecology
I'm sure you will get more replies, but: This is certainly what I heard and so did my daughter. It's a natural way to prompt the natural process. I have no idea that it would overcome problems that might require intervention. Talk with your midwife, doula or OBGYN for your specific situation. Best wishes!

Is toe walking bad for you?

Depends

Extremity-lower-foot-toes
There are plenty of toe walkers in this world with no issues, but with some you can have a contracted or short achilles tendon. This can cause other pathology. Bottom line, if there is no pain, I would not worry so much. In a child, heel lifts in the shoes can help train the child to eliminate the condition. (If in a child - a consultation with podiatrist is recommended.)

How do I treat sleep walking?

Sleepwalking

Treatment needs to be individualized, but generally includes making the sleep environment safer. Also, making lifestyle changes that decrease the likelihood of episodes. Some medications used to treat depression or insomnia may cause sleepwalking. Consulting with a sleep specialist may be useful.

When do babies start walking?

Too soon

Baby
Ask any parent. LOL. The earliest I have ever had a baby walk was 7 months. many walk at 9 months and the average is 10-12 months. Some will be a bit later..12-15 months. I do not become concerned unless a child is not walking by 17 months.
