My heart is regurgitating very tiny amounts of blood, if I become stressed would this make it where more blood travels backwards and cause pain?

My heart is regurgitating very tiny amounts of blood, if I become stressed would this make it where more blood travels backwards and cause pain?

Trace regurgitation.: Trace amounts of regurgitation (backwards flow) are considered normal/physiologic, and being stressed would not make this acutely worse.

I'm just wondering, if you eat too many times & little is it possible to lower your body fat percentage?

I'm just wondering, if you eat too many times & little is it possible to lower your body fat percentage?

Eat little, frequent: I wouldn't say eating too many times is good, but eating 5 small meals a day instead of 1 or 2 large meals is usually better for weight loss. Eating more frequently usually speeds up your metabolism and can help with weight loss as long as you don't eat too much at each meal. One of the meals should be lean protein and vegetables. ...Read more

My calf muscle is smaller than the other.. I was born like this.. Does anyone know why?

My calf muscle is smaller than the other.. I was born like this.. Does anyone know why?

Do you you know if: You had a " clubfoot" when you were born that was treated successfully? That would be one reason, because the calf muscle can be smaller on the extremity that had clubfoot. If you think you have a limb length discrepancy, ask your primary care doctor for a referral to an orthopedist because, with time, that could cause some compensatory scoliosis. Building up a shoe is the usual treatment. ...Read more
