What does it mean to throw your back out? Does it just mean that you hurt your back and can't move or something else?

What does it mean to throw your back out? Does it just mean that you hurt your back and can't move or something else?

When: When people say that they have 'thrown their back out, ' what they really mean is while performing a specific activity (such as gardening, twisting, sneezing, or bending) they experienced an onset of severe back pain. The fact is, 'throwing your back out' is a figure of speech. While there are several causes of this sudden back pain (for example: muscle spasm, arthritis, pinched nerve or a herniated disk), this sudden pain actually remain a mystery. The condition of back pain can be treated in many ways including chiropractic care (patients often experience rapid improvement), pain injections, physical therapy, otc medications, massage and surgical intervention. Each person's pain experience is very personal and differs from person to person. Your doctor can help you determine the specific cause of the back pain (via xray, ct, mri) and prescribe a treatment regimen that will work for you. In the meantime, some things you can do to promote back health is to work towards a healthy weight, lose excess weight, wear comfortable/supportive shoes, ensure your work area/computer is ergonomic and promotes good posture, stretch and exercise regularly and go easy on your back and use good technique when lifting (bend at knees, not the hip).

What does a medication's expiry date mean? Does it become toxic or just less potent? Is it a must that I throw it away past the date?

Not necessarily: The expiration date often doesn't mean very much. If potency and side effects aren't tested beyond a certain time, that's the expiration date. It doesn't mean potency is gone or side effects increase, only that it hasn't been studied to know for sure. Almost all drugs remain safe and effective if not mishandled, e.g. stored in a hot car etc. Always best to replace, but usually OK if not.

Please don't!: A few complications with repeated vomiting: 1) aspiration of vomit with resulting chemical pneumonia; 2) dehydration and electrolyte disturbances; 3) Mallory-Weiss tears of your esophagus; 4) loss of enamel and increased tooth cavities. Evaluation is appropriate to identify and treat the many possible causes of your vomiting, but please don't self-induce it.

What does it mean when you wake up and throw up?

What does it mean when you wake up and throw up?

Morning "vomiting": The longevity of symptoms argues against a mechanical problem, suggesting such entities as diabetes, atypical migraine, lung &sinus problems, &even functional disorders of the gut. Look at what is vomited, and is there blood present, weight loss, wheezing, fever, cough--the doctor will ask about these and more when he/she clarifies the history here. Evaluation is certainly warranted.

Bile: Bilious vomitus is that color. If he has frequent episodes of vomiting, inflammation of the stomach lining (gastritis), gall bladder problems, hepatitis, intestinal adhesions, peptic ulcer, hiatal hernia are possibilities and he should be examined by a physician. Have him abstain from alcohol, caffeine, greasy and very spicy foods, nicotine in the meantime

My boyfriend ejaculated in me but im on the IUD. After I go to the restroom I throw it out and if I go again it happens again. What does this mean?

My boyfriend ejaculated in me but im on the IUD. After I go to the restroom I throw it out and if I go again it happens again. What does this mean?

Discharge with IUD: Are you referring to discharge when you go to the restroom? If so, the majority of it is the ejaculate which may take time to get all of it out (depends on the volume your partner produces). Just having an IUD in general can cause an increase in vaginal discharge, the combination of the two is probably why it take you a little longer.

Talk to an adult: This could be a physical response to something psychologically stressful. Seek out a trusted adult such as a parent or your doctor to talk about your experience.

What does it mean when I have sex I feel like I have to throw up?

What does it mean when I have sex I feel like I have to throw up?

Female? Not sure?: Some of my response is speculation. There are probably a # of possible reasons for nausea associated w sexual intercourse. Some women report nausea w deeper penile penetration ;/or rough sex. In this situation there may be pain which could trigger nausea. Indigestion ; acid reflux might be causative. Prostaglandins could play a role. In some situations – nausea or vomiting could be psychological.
