Avatar m tn They found that lifters who performed each set of a workout until they couldn't complete a repetition had smaller gains in strength than those who left a bit in reserve. End each set when your lifting pace starts to slow, suggests Men's Health fitness advisor Mike Robertson, C.S.C.S. Why it works: As your muscles fatigue, they use fewer fast-twitch fibers, which have the greatest potential for size and strength gains.
Avatar m tn Shave some slices and steep in boiling water for a soothing tea, recommends Bill Phillips, Men's Health editor-in-chief and author of The Better Man Project. Not only do its anti-inflammatory properties make it useful to people with arthritis, bursitis, or tendonitis, but it can also help relieve gas, nausea, motion sickness, allergies, and bad breath, says Phillips. Tart cherries instead of pills.
1829282 tn?1325595258 I recently lost about 10 lbs after going to the gym about 5x a week and working out 1-2hrs each time and doing 30 personal training 2x a month. I stopped going after personal training sessions were up an with the holidays gained that 10 back. I went back to the gym yesterday despite trying to talk myself out of it.. (too tired, stomach hurts, low on gas) so I'm proud of that!

And often the symptoms are better with very high estrogen. Classically MS is at it's best behavior during pregnancy - a time of extremely high estrogen production.

572651 tn?1531002957 Weekly Christian men's breakfast. Work on Sunday sermon. Pay bills, maybe. Saturday: AM: Probably attend "Super Saturday" training program at our district's biggest church, west of COlumbus. PM: Work on Sunday sermon. Work on Sunday worship program. All of these days might include time working on the chcurch website; I'm getting a bit frustrated with links to audio files (past sermons) stored on another server. Shalom.
Avatar m tn each and every time. I finally settled on Planned Parenthood, when I realized they do have a (very limited) men's health service and they could get me seen within a matter of days. So I was seen by a clinician and I made sure to tell her everything. I was not going to make the same mistake twice. I even mentioned my fears of a systemic Candida outbreak. She took a look at me and said it didn't look like yeast to her, but she prescribed me a cream anyways. Needless to say, it didn't work.
Avatar n tn (This is certainly an important issue for women, but I'm less sure about the role calcium plays in men's health. Ask your doctor?) Here's a little horror story to help you feel better (!)...way back in the tx dark ages ('91) they turned me loose with what turned out to be no thyroid function and no one caught it for about 6 months. Can you imagine? When someone did bother to test my thyroid the TSH was in the several hundreds.
1007653 tn?1259389567 As you squat back, sit on the box so your upper thighs are parallel to the floor. Then stand back up. Complete 1 to 3 sets of only 1 to 3 reps each. As you become stronger, use higher boxes and add weight, which creates more tension. Why it works: The box removes all momentum where the lift is most challenging, which forces your muscles to work harder to start back up. And by limiting your range of motion, you learn to handle heavier loads.
Avatar n tn For my sixty fifth birthday this year, my wife (the dear) purchased a week of personal training at the local health club for me. Although I am still in great shape since playing on my college football team 45 years ago, I decided it would be a good idea to go ahead and give it a try. I called the club and made my reservations with a personal trainer named Belinda, who identified herself as a 26-year-old aerobics instructor and model for athletic clothing and swim wear.
1199040 tn?1265239024 bunch of people immunized with the same air jet device, blood going down their arms... He never used drugs, never had transfusions, tattoos, or even major surgeries. So after wondering for a long time where he could have been infected, he finally remembered that fateful day. Before he retired from the military, they offered him hepatitis C test, but he declined, because he considered himself low risk.
Avatar n tn It started off with phlegm in throat and a hoarse voice and then gradually changed into a cough with chest tightness and feeling tired and weak. The cough is actually quite bad at night. Anybody ever heard of this? Know how long it will last?
Avatar f tn Does anyone have any insight as to what could be causing these symptoms of chest pain and chest/back/arm/neck burning? Thanks for reading and any advice you might have.
Avatar n tn I think it can be due to allergies too ie something to do with the inner ear but anxiety makes you focus more on it plus the chest breathing leaves you a bit hyperventilated all the time. And yes it completely goes away when the anxiety is fixed. Any sensations of dizziness when you are mentally well are dealt with rationally ie ignored in the main. If you actually faint that is a different story. Good luck.
Avatar n tn There are some periods throughout the day where it's not laboured and I feel as if I breathe normally, but then it creeps up on me and I have to start yawning again. My nose feels very clogged all the time and my chest, stomach, and back muscles feel very constricted when breathing. It's especially noticeable when I am working out...especially running and lifting weights. I have to stop every once in a while just to yawn (frustrating) to stop from getting dizzy.
Avatar n tn I am sorry for your Dx. I am a female but also now hypo.Since the beginning of my illness everything I read regarding the disease, when I stumbled across the stats of men getting it, I read through it. Dx is rare. specially on sub clinical Hypo or Hyper thyroidism in men. I believe this b/c men are less likely to see a doctor when they have symptoms. and if they do go and get Dx'd - most do not have the patience and stay on top of it.
Avatar n tn The crepe-like skin is nearly gone! Hydration was what my skin needed. I've also been using it on my chest area and it is working great. If I come across something for the loose skin I will certainly share. Good luck ladies.
Avatar n tn I was also experiencing what felt like the effects of sunburn on my entire upper chest. Since then, the arm has become slightly less sensitive but the pain /irritation to the skin had spread to the right half of my chest area and to the right shoulder blade area. Now, about five days later, I am sitting here in the middle of the night, unable to sleep. I am twisting and turning and cannot sleep. My hip/abdomen/rib area is sensitive to the mattress.
Avatar n tn i knew there was something because after a meal i would get palpitations but not everytime, i also had occasional chest discomfort which indicates acid reflex but not all the time. it's just a case of trial and error. try some indigestion meds, give them about a week, change your diet: cut out foods that you feel don't agree with you. i cut out carbohydrates, carbonated drinks, fruits such as oranges that are acidic and also vegetables that can cause gas such as broccoli etc.
Avatar n tn and often times, there are alternatives out there! I work for a leading national health insurance company and have had first hand experience as to what type of "inabilities" that doctors have when offering and referring care. Generally speaking, a medical doctor (primary care, specialist, etc) is trying to make a buck and only trained to do one of four things: diagnose to the best of their ability, medicate, refer out to a specialist, or cut.
Avatar n tn It is a warm, sort of tingly sensation that lasts 5 seconds and occurs, I don't know, 10 times throughout the day. I wonder if I slept on the leg funny?? Stress?? I am 43 and in reasonably good health but seem to be a hypochondriac (spelling?) at times. I doubt this is related, but I have some sort of muscle strain in my hip/groin area that is possible due to an intense backpacking trip in October. Any feedback appreciated. Guess I could consult dr. after Xmas if still going on . . .
Avatar m tn I had posted this in the "woman's health" forum area and got no comments back at all. That area doesn't seem as active of a community as this one. So I will re-post what I posted there related to my wife's hormone levels. As far as thyroid she is being treated with Armour and just got bumped up to 180 mg (from 165). her FT4 are BELOW range, her FT3 are about 25% to 50% of the range but the range is also wider than most ranges we see here.

Avatar n tn Hey hurts, Mine came on very gradually and the pain has changed (in other words, it covers a broader area now), but has stayed very consistent. Now it radiates to my ribs sometimes my chest feels stiff in the morning too. Got my ANA panel back - my doctor said it showed some positive/some negative factors (she thinks it may be an auto-immune issue) and has referred me to a rheumatologist - I go on March 15th. I live in a town that has only 2 rhuematologists (!
Avatar n tn Like you I was originally told that I had acid reflux which was crazy. My cough is a strong itch more under my right ear than in my chest; the cough is never in my chest, just in this location. I can press my finger on the area and cause myself to cough. If I am eating something (especially salty foods) and swallow, if a grain of food gets on the area I start to cough. If I lay on my right side and have sinus drainage, I cough.
Avatar n tn Usually women's tailbones are curvier than men's. That's why a lot of female butts are more shapely than males. Especially from the side view. So when you see a person, male or female, who have a "flat" butt, it's just because his or her tailbone is not as curved as someone with a J-Lo butt. See what I mean? Pretty simple right?! So, the soft tissue (fat and muscle) of the behind, the pelvis, and the hips have to do with how big the behind is, from the front view and the side view.
Avatar n tn I am self-employed now, so no health insurance at the moment. I have been contemplating my next move. Being that I have seen a urologist who dismissed it as just stress, my thought was to try and get a doctor who seems interested in unique problems, try and spark their interest. I have just been dealing with it. Every single day, as best I can. Some days its worse than others. But I am still breathing, so things could be much worse. Megazoid posted some really good info for you.
Avatar n tn As I said i am very active, working a fulltime job, and training at the gym on my own, studying a martial art capoeira and attending 2 personal training sessions a week. I will say though that reading through previous posts has put my mind at ease a little. Well I guess i just needed to share my story. Thank you for reading.
Avatar f tn I had upper and lower jaw surgery 3 years ago and my health has never been the same. I was given 4 plates and screws in the mandible and maxilla and got the same story about the bioavailability of titanium, but I question it. I have done some moderate research over the last few months and I found one excellent study about a very small percentage of patients having significant health systems since receiving Ti implants.
Avatar n tn any instructions for follow-up? did you get any meds? Seriously think about going to a naturopath for extra health support, get someone to call and drive you there. Also, go see your medical doctor if you feel that you have worsened. I got the flu shots on Nov 5th and there have been days that I felt that I went "backwards" and then I would improve again. Look at our original forum (Tingling after Swine Flu Vaccine) where there are over 150 comments for more feedback and suggestions.
