What's normal?: No, unless you are a dog who is cooled by panting - it is not. You need to try intentional breath patterns to gain some control over it. Breath in thru nose a full amount slowly. Hold it for a count of 6-8. Then blow it out through pursed lips like blowing out a candle for a long steady count of 8-10 till lungs are totally empty. Repeat 5 times. D this pattern every hour at least. Best! ...Read more

As long as you have no symptoms, you stay fit and in good shape, you should be fine. If you get any symptoms of fatigue, lethargy, tiredness, shortness of breath, lightheadedness, etc. than you need to se the Dr. Good luck. ...Read more

hard to say: With the limited info and not knowing what has been done so far. I would suggest you keep a diary of when it happens, what you feel, how long it lasts, things that improve/worsen the issue and what you were doing before and at the time it happens. ...Read more

I had a d&c suction surgery on friday march 2nd. I am having severe pain and golf size blood clots. Is this normal? I would rate my pain an 8 on the pain scale. I have been taking ibuprofen and using a heating pad.

Hopefully : Hopefully your symptoms have subsided or you contacted your doctor and were seen. Blood clots this large are not normal and pain that is 8/10 is worrisome. In a situation like this your doctor should be contacted by phone right away or you should present to the emergency room. I hope you are better soon. ...Read more
