What to do if i can't fall asleep so im just pulling an all nighter! is that bad?

Occasionally, no: Particularly if you can remain awake and functional until bedtime next day. A brief nap (not longer than about 90 minutes, set an alarm) would be ok mid-day, but longer could further disturb your sleep pattern. Try reducing caffeine & other stimulants and slowing your activity level about an hour before you plan to go to bed. ...Read more

See eye doc: It is unusual that it would swell again. I would see eye doc and make sure nothing there and then maybe see an allergist. In the meantime, use a warm compress a few times a day. ...Read more

Ask yourself what is affecting you in your life, for instance are you too senstive to people's reactions to you? If your anger does not discontinue consult a mental health professional who can help you understand what your anger is masking and how to react more constructively. Best wishes. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

I am getting cough if i go to out side the  room what is the reason for it and how can i over come from this problem?

Asthma vs. pollution: Hi! Cough with a specific activity is often related to environmental exposure (like pollution, tobacco smoke, nearby animals, other people's cooking), or even caused by a change in temperature of the air inside vs. outside. Sometimes it is a sign of asthma (even without a prior diagnosis). A primary care doctor can order some tests & help arrange evaluation by a pulmonologist (lung specialist). ...Read more

Clue is in your Hx.: You need to follow up with your provider. You have had endoscopy before, so perhaps you have a history of gastritis, reflux, ibs, or ulcers. This situation may become worse during the premenstrual time. To be sure please get a consult! ...Read more

I stubbed my finger while working out. If i leave it alone, will it just go back to normal? And what is the time frame?

I stubbed my finger while working out. If i leave it alone, will it just go back to normal? And what is the time frame?

Probably,hard to say: This is difficult to answer without examining you. As long as it's not broken (which seems unlikely) it should heal without intervention, probably taking a few days to a few weeks. There could be a tiny fracture- even if so, it should heal on its own but may take a few weeks. Consider homeopathic arnica, both internally (12c strength, 2 morning ; bedtime) ; topically. If not improving see a doc! ...Read more
