This month I have lost 20 pounds, just eating healthy & exercise. I've been very constipate. Today I strained for a BM and got a bad migraine. Is this bad?

Water, water: In eating healthy and exercising you might have lost enough fluid to both make the loss quite high and the bowels constricted. Be careful to drink ~1/2 gal/day. For now, a gentle laxative might help - or better - prunes, warm lemon water, etc. Try not to strain, hopefully an OTC pain med will clear the headache. It's not likely migraine. ...Read more

I have supraventircular tachicardia. How does it compare to exercise as far as strain on the body, as far as oxegen consumption ect?

I have supraventircular tachicardia. How does it compare to exercise as far as strain on the body, as far as oxegen consumption ect?

Not comparable: During svt your heart races without any increased metabolic demand from your tissues, as would occur during exercise. At your age, with an otherwise healthy heart, the heart's arteries can deliver enough oxygen to the heart to meet the heart muscle's needs even during svt. There is no particular "strain" on the body. This may not apply in the elderly or if you have some other severe illness. ...Read more

I have to be on the computer for work for most of my day. Is there an eye exercise that I can do very quickly to alleviate the strain?

During exercise, I might have caused a mild muscle strain or rupture in the upper back area. Probably trapezius or rhomboideus muscle. What to do?

after that, rest and heat is the key to overcome the spasm in the muscle that causing the pain.
you can do some stretching exercise to the muscle as well.
have some body apply icy hot on the area as well.
take aleve, (naproxen) or naprosen, it works better than ibuprofen on muscle.
good luck ...Read more
