Why does the vitamin bottle make me retch when I open it up?

May not be good: Some vitamins have a very strong odor to them because of the way they are made. Multivitamins and b complexes are notorious for this. It could also be that they are not well made. To check the effcacy of your vitamins, put them in regular vinegar. If they dont dissolve in 15 minutes, throw them away. They have no bio-availability. I recommend physician grade products, capsules are great. ...Read more

Plant-based proteins: If by protein you mean meat, there are still plenty of plant-based proteins you can eat -- and if you can tolerate them, dairy ; eggs. (i've known pregnant women who crave eggs.) plant-based proteins include beans of all kinds; leafy greens like spinach; quinoa; buckwheat (gluten-free and unrelated to wheat despite the name); nuts; spirulina; peas, etc. http://tinyurl.com/kalj2tj. ...Read more

Maybe iron.: Prenatal vitamins have more iron in them than regular vitamins which may be upsetting your stomach. You could taking the vitamin as half after breakfast and half after dinner to see if that helps. I'd also take it right after dinner (don't wait an hour). You could try a different brand (but they all have iron). Start with half tab twice a day with food and let me know if it helps -. ...Read more

16 year old golfer with sports injury in his back in May 2016, re-injured July 2016 playing squash, 2 MRI's done. What might cause ongoing pain......?

16 year old golfer with sports injury in his back in May 2016, re-injured July 2016 playing squash, 2 MRI's done. What might cause ongoing pain......?

Is there instability?: One consideration is to do flexing and extending xrays. If there is motion that would explain the persistent pain. The MRI can show a stress fracture but sometimes it is hard to tell due to motion artifact. Given the lack of agreement I would bite the bullet and get a SPECT bone scan. If negative then push forward with core strengthening with a physiatrist and physical therapist. If it is a stress fracture and it is not healing you could consider a bone stimulator as an off label treatment. I published one case where this was done successfully in a 17 year old elite gymnast. ...Read more

Yes: The risk of dangerous toxicity in a healthy adult from a double-dose of any common multivitamin is essentially zero. That being said, men should generally avoid multi-vitamins that contain iron, but it takes years of above-recommend iron dosing to produce toxicity. ...Read more
