Can lifting weights put tension on your back on make you shorter o stop yourself from getting taller?

Can lifting weights put tension on your back on make you shorter o stop yourself from getting taller?

This is my theory: Theoretically it's possible that excessive weight lifting (perhaps twice your body weight) may cause pressure & compression on the discs between the spinal vertebrae. This may be worse with dead lifts, squats & shoulder press & not much with bench press. ...Read more

How can you drop weight put on by prednisone?

How can you drop weight put on by prednisone?

Weight gain/ steroid: Prednisone not only increases your appetite but it also makes you retain salt and water which adds weight. In addition it redistributes the fat in your body. It is very difficult not to gain weight while on prednisone, especially if you are on a high dose. Tips to help would include eating a low salt diet, maintaining exercise, and snacking on healthy, low fat foods. ...Read more

Does being under weight put you at risk of cardiac complications? I don't mean a bmi of 12 I mean model thin.

Complex answer: You have avery low BMI, and you are multiple medications. The risk of heart disease may not just be blockage in there artery but also due to direct heart muscle issue and electrolyte issue. Improving nutrition, and regular followup with your MD. There is no simple answer tho your question. My best advise is improve your nutritional status as best as you can and take care of your self! ...Read more

Accidently more weight put on my ACL reconstructed knee. Lost balance. Din fall bt felt terrible. No pain. Took painkiller prior to dat. Nothing wrong?

Accidently more weight put on my ACL reconstructed knee. Lost balance. Din fall bt felt terrible. No pain. Took painkiller prior to dat. Nothing wrong?

Probably Okay: I allow my acl reconstructions to bear full weight afterwards (except if a meniscal repair or other ligaments were repaired) so it is unlikely that you sustained an injury by putting too much weight on your leg. If the leg swelled up or is causing pain, that would be a bad sign. If you have that, you should see your surgeon for evaluation. ...Read more

Is lifting weights put someone at high risk with atrial fibrillation?

Is lifting weights put someone at high risk with atrial fibrillation?

PAF: There is mounting data showing that athletes who generate a lot of upper body strain (ie rowers, weight lifters) have an increased incidence of a fib, felt to be due to back pressure on the heart during straining that ultimately stretches out the top chambers which is where atrial fibrillation comes from. As you continue weight lifting, be aware that your paroxysmal afib may become persistent. ...Read more

Severe pain on interior side of left foot (not bottom, heel or ball, only inside side).Worse when weight put on it, hurts when resting, can barely walk?

Gorilloid-What the?: It sounds as though you're describing a condition known as "os naviculare syndrome". This involves a loose, slipped, fractured or otherwise sick accessory bone located on the inside of your foot. A physical examination and x-rays will be needed to confirm this and identify any other related problems. ...Read more

Acl reconstruction, 6 days out (hamstring). Muscle weakness, swelling, wobble when weight put on leg. Normal? Dr said I should be walking 1 week out.

NOT AS PREDICTED: Your recovery is slow at best, but not necessarily an area of worry, unless there is a problem with your femoral nerve. Strongly urge followup visit in next few days with your surgeon, and find out if this is just a slow recovery or a post-operative complication which needs to be addressed. ...Read more

Facial: Facial nerve injury may occur secondary to tumor, surgery, or bell's palsy, which is a viral syndrome. Functional and aesthetic changes occur from loss of the motor function of the facial nerve and autonomic function of the facial nerve (innervation to parotid salivary gland). Major symptoms include inability to raise the brow (frontalis muscle), inability to close the eye fully (orbicularis occuli muscle), inability to smile or raise the lip (zygomatic and levator muscles of the cheek), and inability to tightly close the mouth (orbilularis oris muscle). In patient s with bell's palsy, it is common that the nerves regrowing into the tear gland get "confused", resulting in crocodile tears (the eye starts tearing at the smell of food).

The best and most complicated treatment is nerve grafting, where functional nerves are attched from the base of the brain or functional muscles on the other side of the face. To the non-fuctioning muscles. This generally musct be done in the firat year after the injury. As the involved muscles undergo a pricess known as denervation atrophy.

The second most effective surgery is muscle trasfer and use of a gold implant. Slips of functioning muscle that don't depend on the facial nerve for function are transfered to the non-functioning muscles. This can be done for blink (temporalis muscle), and smile (temporalis msucle). The gold weight helps to lose the eye, as the muscle that opens the eye is still intact (levator occuli).

Other procedures can help the aesthetic complications. These include browlift, facelift, fat transfer, and relaxation of the opposing side of the face with botx cosmetic.

I would recommend that you seek consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon who has experience in this area. ...Read more

Tried everything to lose weight with no luck, I stuck to nomore than 900cals a day & gym every other day, did not lose weight, stopped & put it on!

Tried everything to lose weight with no luck, I stuck to nomore than 900cals a day & gym every other day, did not lose weight, stopped & put it on!

Too few calories: 900 calories is too few. You are like an anorexic and your body goes into starvation mode and slows down your metabolism. You need to eat at least 1200 calories a day divided into three meals of 400 calories each. Going to the gym is great- keep it up, but you must eat a reasonable amount of calories in order for your body not to reduce its metabolism to a very low rate and halt weight loss. ...Read more
