Myths&facts about bowel movement*? Like, is it ok to force self to go*? Do you actually lose weight if u go after a meal? What to look out for?

Myths&facts about bowel movement*? Like, is it ok to force self to go*? Do you actually lose weight if u go after a meal? What to look out for?

Wt loss stool only: Best for your bowels: plenty fluids, regular physical activity, avoiding eating a lot of foods that slow bowels, like fatty, high sugar, empty calorie snacks & a lot of cheese & meat. And eating plenty fiber-rich foods - fruits, & especially vegetables. No surprise, right? Straining is not good, & can lead to hemorrhoids & painful fissures. Regular laxatives also not good. Hope that helps. ...Read more

Please help! i need to numb my tongue frenulum for a few minutes to do something that would otherwise be a bit too painful to do myself. Will orajel numb the area?

No: Topical anesthetics provide surface, not deep, numbing. If you are contemplating self-surgery please rethink. In addition to the distinct possibility of an extremely painful experience, the possibility of injury, bleeding, infection, are extremely high. And trying to work backwards in a mirror takes training and experience. Please rethink. ...Read more

Right thumb slight tremor when trying to navigate my phone. It's been like that for 8 hours. Do I need to get it checked? What could be the cause?

Right thumb slight tremor when trying to navigate my phone. It's been like that for 8 hours. Do I need to get it checked? What could be the cause?

Electrolyte issue: Minor/slight intentional (trying to do something) tremors occurs from time to time. The cause can be minor electrolyte imbalances, feeling tired, etc. I don't think you need to get checked out. If you have unintentional (resting) tremors that occur and stay or your intentional (trying to get phone) tremor is not going away after a couple of days then you could speak to a physician/neurologist. ...Read more

Can a shoulder tendonitis  and inflammation get severe? Of so, what can happen? Should i keep skiing? What to do to make it get better?

Unusual : Shoulder 'tendinitis' @ age17 is very unusual unless you are involved in overhead sports( softball , tennis etc.)i would suggest talking w/ your parents about seeing an orthopedic surgeon who can examine you and give you a definitive diagnosis. Instability of the shoulder ' masquerading' as tendinitis( or resulting in secondary rot cuff tendinitis) is much more common.! best of luck! ...Read more
