What can I do if I am uncomfortable breastfeeding in front of others?

What can I do if I am uncomfortable breastfeeding in front of others?

Discretion: Some women love breast feeding anywhere. Most though feel some sort of discretion is necessary, and that is more than natural. Bringing a light blanket or breastfeeding cloth can give small privacy. You can also politely excuse yourself to a private room, a bathroom, or a bedroom. Nobody will think this odd, and most should respect your privacy. ...Read more

There : There is little information given to pret6end a medical case scenario can be thought . I think that you ought to consult the right person the right way. Still doctors are the ones that evaluate signs and symptoms of disease and unfortunatelly medicine continues to be more an arty than a science . Chronic fatigue syndrome is a difficult diagnosis to make and issually based on ruling out everything else . Treatment then is also not easy . There are a number of requierements that should be fullfilled for the diagnosis . I hope you find the right answers soon , and get to fell better. ...Read more

I am 28 week pregnant. I feel lot of pain in my back. I am not sporty. It would be nice if you also advise me the exercises to reduce the pain.

I am 28 week pregnant. I feel lot of pain in my back. I am not sporty. It would be nice if you also advise me the exercises to reduce the pain.

May not be muscle: Advanced pregnancy often causes back pain.Usually, pain is mechanical-due to stretching of ligaments as hormones cause their relaxation in preparation for birth.Rather than exercises, I often treat these pains w/ gentle osteopathic manipulation to guide bones back.It's highly effective-better than exercise, since weak muscles are rarely the issue.Some chiropractors are good,too; many are too rough ...Read more

There are a couple benefits to not getting the flu shot (you have to admit). I think i know of one of them. Am i right? With the flu, i would prefer to risk getting it while I am young and healthy. I believe that when I am older, i will have more immuni

There are a couple benefits to not getting the flu shot (you have to admit).  I think i know of one of them. Am i right? With the flu, i would prefer to risk getting it while I am young and healthy.  I believe that when I am older, i will have more immuni

I : I disagree with you. The flu vaccine contains weakened or dead form of the virus. Your body recognizes the virus as an antigen and your immune system forms antibodies to fight the dead virus. That way, if your body is exposed to the flu virus, your body has already built immunity against the virus. The fact is, each year, the flu virus mutates and has a different molecular form. The antibodies that your body built against the previous virus won't typically recognize and fight the new mutated virus. This is why getting the vaccine each season is highly recommended. Getting vaccines is a wonderful way to build immunity in the body because your body develops antibodies based on the weakened virus within the vaccine. Protecting yourself against the flu by getting the vaccine is also protecting your family, friends and community from getting the flu. If you do not catch the flu, then you cannot spread it to others. Also, if you do get the flu, it will likely be less severe than if you opted not to since your body has built immunity. Another item to consider is that influenza can be so severe to some people that it can cause severe respiratory distress, requiring admission to the hospital (such as with h1n1 flu) and mechanical ventilation. The flu vaccine is highly recommended to protect against the illness....That and good handwashing. ...Read more

Constipation/pain: constipation can cause back pain, but the combination of no teeth and opiods is trouble for your colon. There is a drug Movantik that you take once daily that blocks the constipation causing effects of opiods on the colon, but it is pretty expensive. the only way to be sure there is nothing wrong is to undergo colonoscopy ...Read more

Why do I get dizzy when i eat the first 2-5 bites every time i eat makes me feel dizzy. I am not on any medications nor have had any health problems in the past. I am completely lost and don't know how to get rid of this or even what it is

That : That is a very unusual symptom. My first suggestion would be to see your doctor and have blood tests, especially to be certain that your blood glucose is normal. If it persists though you may need to see a neurologist for their thoughts. If you develop weakness, headache, or vomiting, then you would have to be seen immediately. ...Read more
