Common Questions and Answers about Exercise equipment desk


Avatar n tn When stress, like exercise, increases the heart rate, it makes you a higher risk for stroke and heart attack in this profession. Since the stress levels suffered by EMTs in emergency situations, your heart rate may prevent you from getting and keeping a job. Alot of time exercises that are aerobic bring down the heart rate. Biking, swimming, low impact aerobics and power walking are good exercises that will give you a good workout without raising your heart rate too high.
505857 tn?1329685117 My work is behind a desk so i sit for 9 hours of the day and the rest in front of the tv at home. I know exercise has a lot to do with it but i just cannot get myself motivated. I'm trying again this week with the fruit and yoghurts as i have been completely off them and can't seem to get into eating them again. I grudge giving my money to a slimming class as once you start you can't end them or you end up putting all the weight you lost back on.
Avatar n tn however, I don't know of any doctor that won't go along with healthy eating;reasonable exercise and weight loss. It's possible that your arthritis could get some better if you start exercising regularly and gain more flexibility in your body. It will be helpful to go to one of the many websites that help you calculate the number of calories you need per day, etc. You can do a google search for "calorie counters" and come up with a whole list.
Avatar m tn I am unable to sleep in any position other than on my left side. Although I have access to exercise equipment, I am unable to use it due to such low energy levels. As a result, I get no exercise whatsoever. I become unable to breathe if I attempt to sit back in an armchair, and must remain leaning forward with my elbows on my knees for support. Sitting upright at a dining table or desk is uncomfortable without using the table surface for support.
Avatar n tn Some people become obsessed with their BP and take many readings per day. Some of the same people have very inaccurate equipment also. I don't know what type of BP monitoring device you have, and it really doesn't even matter in a way, because the best on the market can give false readings, especially when you keep repeating the test. Stay away from the wrist and finger BP measuring devices.
Avatar m tn Those changing conditions are related to the state of your autonomic nervous sytem (affected by posture, eating, exercise, drugs and emotions). The motor sensation was big when I was quite anxious about my condition (autonomic systems way up). These days, with a great deal of understanding to quell the anxiety, I rarely feel the motor running (but I still do occassionally, like when waking up from a vivid dream). Ask your EP if any of this makes sense.
649848 tn?1534637300 Well, Ranaesheart suggested the other day that I do a post about yoga, since I suggest it whenever someone new comes into the community, so I'm going to give it a shot. I must confess, I am definitely a novice with yoga myself, but I learn more as I go along. I know there are several different kinds of yoga, ranging from what I do, which is slow and deliberate to another type that is very physical. Each kind of yoga has its own name and no, I don't know them all.
147426 tn?1317269232 I thought it was time to revisit this for our newer members. Okay, I woke up this morning and this played out in my mind. WARNING -THE FOLLOWING IS BIZARRE AND TWISTED - READ AT YOUR OWN PERIL!!! Patient walks into doctor's exam room and nurse asks, "Why are you here?" Patient - "I've been diagnosed with ADS - Appendage Dropoff Syndrome." Nurse, "Okay, the doctor will be in shortly." Doctor - "Good Morning, I'm Dr. Pfufinek. What can I do for you?
Avatar m tn i figured i was in shape ...had my exercise equipment all set up...i never thought i would be one of the folks that got hit hard with symptoms.............it went the other way for me...by the end of the second week on triple with incivek i was done...i couldn't stand up for more then 5 to 15 minutes at a time...the drugs worked great on me...saturated my system big time...be ready either way...and go with the flow....i would let the folks at work know your on tx...
Avatar m tn I'm fairly fit, and the rest of the year I have no problem exercising (I use an exercise bike 3-4 times a week), living heavy things (computers/equipment). So it's not an 'out of shape' thing by any means. I eat healthy and don't have any vitamin deficiencies that I can think of. It literally pops up out of nowhere and makes life miserable for a month or two. When this originally happened the first time in 2012, I thought I was having a heart attack or something.
614508 tn?1265285322 If a child’s body needs to move, if their biological body is calling out for some heavy work and exercise, but they are sitting at a desk or watching TV, they will chew. Chewing helps release pent-up body energy, which is necessary to feel calm, grounded and in the Zone to learn. But too much of a good thing isn’t good either! As Dr. Carl Amberg, a dentist, says, “Too much chewing (or clenching and grinding) can cause increased tonicity of the jaw muscles and wearing down of the teeth.” Dr.
921323 tn?1268679412 Some say, why don’t we save the millions of dollars spent on drug research and instead invest them in education, legislation, and regulations that will help us eat better and exercise more? Put the money towards the health costs of the uninsured. Or, use it to fund research in diabetes, heart disease, or any of the other countless complications of obesity. But is it too early to admit defeat?
Avatar n tn It's hard to walk from the parking lot to my desk, let alone set-up and lead meetings, project teams, move equipment, be a good teamplayer, etc. I have daily headaches, major fatigue, depression, weight gain, brain fog, skin rash, thinning hair. I'm going to work M,W,F 6 hours per day and T,Th 1 hour per day from home by eMail and see how that goes. This has been difficult because I was reluctant to talk about the illness at first, until I tried the tx to see what the effects would be.
Avatar n tn How much efficiency, if any is lost by a mechanical valve versus a repaired valve. 4. In simple terms, how much improvement, if any does a patient feel in terms of exercise ability. (My current time during a Bruce protocall treatmill test is 14 minutes and 20 seconds with a maximum heartrate of 177. i.e. will my treadmill time be the same a minute or two more or less than before surgery. 5. How long does a Mitral Valve Repair last, i.e.
Avatar f tn ----------------------------------------------- Two weeks before ablation, stopped all exercise per doctor’s orders. Reduced Atenolol to 2/3 normal dose on the day of the stress test only, per doctor’s orders. Three days prior to ablation, I was instructed to stop taking Atenolol. Also had to stop eating chocolate until after the ablation. (I can live without Atenolol, but I can’t live without my chocolate.) No food or water was allowed after midnight before the day of ablation.
80575 tn?1207135964 I don't follow any special diet but I do drink a lot of water and I go to the gym and exercise every day. My study nurse seems to think that has something to do with my overall state - she's a bit of an exercise addict herself. I also did have an initial gradual drop in hgb - by around week 6 or 8 it went down to 10.9 - but it went right back up 2 weeks later. Now its hovering around 13. When that happened, the nurse suggested that I eat more red meat and keep exercising.
Avatar n tn I'm not particularly fit (15st 5) but am working on that slowly by gentle exercise and a very low fat diet - plus I'm only just 23. My questions are these: 1) Is my high heart rate really a problem in the absence of heart disease, or is it just a cause of my anxiety? (My heart rate can drop to 72bpm at times of extreme rest like sitting for hours and hours!
Avatar n tn Just some basic information: I am 20 years old, and I do not exercise regularly (which is about to change!) I am 5'5" and around 140 pounds. According to my father, heart problems run through his side of the family. According to my mother, high blood pressure, cholesterol, and diabetes runs through her side of the family.
Avatar n tn It is exceptionally hard to watch a movie, anymore. I know they get better when I exercise, however, when I get them so much, I get fatigued and exercise is the last thing I want to do. I am a nurse and run around for 8+ hours. I will get a few during work and get a bit freaked out, although I know I am working with other nurses. I just don't want anyone to know I'm getting them, so it makes it worse. When I get home, and am not working my stressful job, I would like to relax.
649848 tn?1534637300 I might check it out, a middle-aged woman has no business not at least trying to exercise in a more focused way. If I add an increased exercise level to the will to drop my dates with Doctor Pepper, that should knock off some tummy. Good intentions, right?
294425 tn?1288531995 BP is good, cholesterol is good, not a smoker, not overweight. I exercise about 3-4 times /week. Currently on HRT (estrogen only) x 1 year or so for early menopause. I finally went to my family doc and he was actually very concerned - I had assumed that it couldn't be my heart because of my overall good health and no real risk factors. (Family history unimpressive except for my mom.
Avatar m tn I couldn't shake it all day. Once I cooled down, I was so super lethargic all day I fell asleep twice at my desk while teaching. I also live in Florida so the highs are like 90 now and I'm starting to really notice the change. I am certainly noticing just an annoying increase of my already annoying symptoms. And let me add, I am undiagnosed, so now I just feel flat out annoyed!
Avatar m tn there are several lines of evidences suggesting that the molecular mechanism of exercise-induced upregulation of vascular eNOS expression are closely related to the changes in fluid shear stress in the vasculature. Exercise increases heart rate, which in turn increases blood flow and vascular shear stress, leading to enhanced NO production".
Avatar m tn Surprise, surprise, they are hiding under the desk!! Our two DE sentator offices in D.C. said they haven't even read the bill....but they are voting for it!!!
Avatar f tn ( we went to a private hospital where we copped a sarcastic desk nurse who told my wife she was putting it on (she is very lucky I didn't pull her head through the glass. They put her on fluids over night then she came home. They suggested a lumbar puncture to see what was going on with the spinal fluid but due to her bad experience my wife didn't want to do it. 1 month ago she had no choice!!

Avatar n tn Regardless of whether you perform exercise indoors or out, you should drink sufficient water when you exercise. The recommendation is 10 glasses a day for adults and taking drinks every 15-20 minutes during workouts. Sports drinks and juices can replace lost nutrients during exercise. Some sports supplements are known to cause headaches. If you currently use supplements, try cycling out one thing at a time to see if something you are taking is causing the headaches.
220917 tn?1309788081 After I carried these journals, I got back to my desk and thought I was going to die. (Sort of) I had to rest my head on my desk and was breathing hard for 45 minutes. It took me that long to recover. If the building had been on fire, they'd have had to come get me. And I was off for the rest of the day. Funny, but I don't recall being down the next day. After getting a good night's rest, I'm pretty sure I was much better. Would that be atypical of CFS malaise? I think I'm done now...
Avatar n tn Might be worth doing a calorie count, and finding out from a trainer or nutritionist what your calorie intake should be given your exercise regimen. My calorie needs are around 2500/day given my exercise routine and build etc, but for about a year, I wasn't paying attention, thinking I was eating healthily, and was only getting around 1800/day. Like clockwork everyday within an hour after exercising, my heart would start with its tricks.
