Avatar f tn Hello, I was wondering if anyone has any input for me. I'm 28 years old with moderate to occasionally severe back pain. I decided to write because I just spent 45 minutes in the kitchen trying to cook a Thanksgiving dessert and my back started aching badly. The fact that I can't even cook for my family without the pain is alarming to me. When I was 12 in 1991, I had a C-D fusion for a 60 degree scoliosis curve.

415165 tn?1243663947 Today I went to the hospital for monitoring and testing because I passed a clot the size of a tennis ball. Extremely horrific let me tell ya. I have placenta previa and this is my third child, I am 27 years old. The dr didnt seem too worried about it and ended up sending me home on total bed rest. The baby they said seemed absolutely fine and my blood count was normal. Would like to know though what may be causing these clots and why I am still having them, especially sooooo big.
Avatar n tn If i refrain from putting my body into and using my stomach to generate power I dont feel any pain, but if i use my stomach I get a massive cramp and have to sit down for a while. I tried taking a break from hard workouts for about a month, but once i started using my stomach for punching the bag again it came right back. I think it may be a pulled muscle in my stomach but i'm not sure. i'm 22 in good shape, not overweight, dont smoke, don't do drugs, but occasionaly drink.
Avatar m tn There are several of us on here who have a similar eye complaint: seeing a bright flash, like the afterimage of a flash bulb, when we blink, and sometimes, on upgaze. This is transient symptom for most of us, lasting anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. When the "spot" in our visual field passes over a dark background, the spot appears light. When the spot passes over a light background, it appears dark.
Avatar n tn Some running for short distances are required during these workouts. I am scheduled for another stress test later this month; moreover, I will be taking a MRA next week in the head area. Am I due for a pacemaker now, or will I need one at some point in the future? Should I be worried now or should I be concerned in 2-10 years. Please help!! Thanks, K.
Avatar m tn In any case, be sure to warm up before you do the heavy workouts. Don't toss on the sweats at 6am and go out for a jog.
1211508 tn?1343083205 I am a fixture at my gym and have been doing cardio workouts for years and am in good shape. First noticed PVCs at age 19--freaked me out. Have been to cardiologists and have had EKG, echo, stress tests and besides very mild mitral valve regurgitation, which is rarely even detected when they check for it, I have been given a clean bill of health w/regard to my heart.
Avatar m tn It seemed like a great way to exercise. The workout for the day consisted of pushups, pull-ups, bench press, and maybe a few other things. After working out I went to play tennis with my friend. I normally beat him, but he was beating me and I couldn't seem to hit the ball very hard. He complained that I wasn't trying hard enough and I tried to really put it to him on the next serve. When I did my shoulder really hurt. My shoulder has hurt since then for the last year.
Avatar n tn Hi and thank you for your response! 1. I play tennis two and a half hours every day (singles), and I also run on the treadmill for 30 minutes in addition to tennis about 5 times a week. When running on the treadmill, I run four minutes at 5.5 mph and one minute at 7.0 mph. I repeat this cycle four times and include a warm up and cool down. There is no incline when I use the treadmill. Occasionally, if my knees are feeling sore, I do 45-60 minutes of elliptical instead of the treadmill. 2.
Avatar f tn Bike riding too. Do you like sports like tennis or racketball? As for what you eat. Always choose color over white. That means dark veggies. Fruits. Lean protein. Forget sugar. White bread. Rice. Pasta. Potatoes. Watch your portion control too. 5 tiny meals instead of 3 big meals boosts your metabolic rate. Good luck. Keep us posted on your progress.
Avatar f tn In fact, it's possible to build six-pack abs through cardio workouts alone if you engage the core muscles. Running, tennis, kickboxing and rowing all use the core to stabilize the upper body during the workout. The abs engage, and at the same time get stronger and more defined. Doing ab exercises is the best way to sculpt the six-pack.
Avatar f tn Thank you. This helps alot. Will be hard for me since I've always been very active (tennis, yoga, weights, etc.), but since I fear my hernias may have been caused by going back to intense exercise too quickly after the colon removal surgery (I waited about 5-6 months, but that may not have been long enough) I will do it! Thanks again for your detailed response.
1963845 tn?1376034409 I don't like going to the gym because it's located very far from my house and it's been like months, I did not go to the gym. Is there any possible way for me to work out at home without using weights? Oh, is there any substitute for weights?
Avatar n tn To get treated i took anti-inflammatories, rested it, and did physical therapy. I can walk and run for a bit with no pain, but if i try to jog long distance i feel joint pain in my knee. I was thinking about taking a supplement to increase the strength in my joint. My dad bought Osteo Bi-flex. I haven't started taking it yet because I wanted to see if it was safe or not first by checking here. Are there any side effects at all from taking this short-term or long-term? If so, what are they?
1037502 tn?1254442945 I've been weight training very regular now for several months, and the last couple of weeks or so, I've been experencing elbow pain after my workout. Lasting for several days with pain when bending my elbow. The pain is only in the right elbow (I'm right handed). It feels like a bruise on the outside of part of the elbow. I can also feel discomfort from my elbow when my arm is straight with a barbell/dumbell hanging down.
Avatar m tn I have to give my blood samples for blood sugar and cholestrol tomorrow. Today evening I slowly tried to go to my tennis court and start palying. I was ok for first 30 mins. When i started running around,my head started to spin and the chest pain is back. But I was not tired and was never short of breath. It is also true that sometimes i started to get worried which eventually result in cold body. Any idea what could be wrong.
1696793 tn?1306623798 I am in good physical condition otherwise. Have had to stop upper body, shoulder workouts for the last 6 months. I saw an Ortho Phys Assist and with his findings, etc he said that I should keep the appt with the Ortho Surgeon, cuz therapy won't help all of this. My Primary care doc's office tried to get the referral again for the Ortho Surgeon, but he says I don't need any type of surgery.
Avatar n tn I play tennis for my school, but the seasons got all switched around. Tennis just started up again, and it's been about 18 months since I played. However, with the strenuous running and leg workouts that we have to do, I've noticed a severe pain in both my legs (the calf area). My coach says it's just the muscle growing, but it feels like the actual bone is what hurts.
Avatar m tn Hi I ve been working out regularly for last 1.5 year... day before yesterday I was doin shoulder exercises end of the season I was getting little when I went to do exercise, in warm up I did pull ups and got sudden headache I tried to do lat pull down but because of the headache and discomfort I had to stop the exercise.....
Avatar m tn Hello! Go for present day scans to diagnose any past local injury. Do not exert or do any physical exercise till you are diagnosed. Use ice packs and NSAIDs to decrease the pain. Follow up with an orthopedician. Take care!
1400351 tn?1280741619 Welcome, Honeybumble! We have a nice crew here so I'm sure you'll make friends & gain motivation. I have much more weight to lose (60 lbs.) than you do (and yes, 10-12 kg=22 to 26.4 lbs), but we're all in it together. Weight training is great for toning the arms: bicep curls, tricep kickbacks, rows. You can google them online to find videos of the exercises if you're not familiar with proper form, etc.. One site, for example, is: .
700223 tn?1318169294 Running shoes are great for marathons, but don’t offer enough support for basketball, soccer or tennis. Needless to say, all equipment must be well fitting and in good condition. It is particularly important to check children’s’ equipment before the start of each season since their sizes can change so rapidly. Don’t forget, the field is part of your equipment too. Make sure it is in good shape and free of debris. 5. Warm up and stretch before you start.
Avatar n tn The bone pain from the Neupogen begins about 2-3 days after the start and lasts the duration for me- 10 days. The Taxanes also cause bone/muscle pain- and it can be unbearable for 1-2 days. I have also had AC. My whites have stayed within low normal throughout.....but I take MGN-3. Neupogen was prescribed as a preventive only because I changed regimens and the new chemo regimen is very aggressive.
Avatar m tn According to the researchers, bending over is ideal for recovery for multiple reasons. For one, it slightly moves your body’s primary breathing muscle—the diaphragm—so you can bring more air into your lungs with each breath, says Brilla. The position also allows your abdominal muscles to force out more carbon dioxide every time you exhale, she says. And that’s important, because CO2 is a byproduct of exercise.
233382 tn?1193661741 It has worked really well for her. As for the sore knees, I have a 14-year-old daughter who does not have diabetes, but she is growing and often has sore joints-- it could just be from his growth and training. But of course you should tell your endocrinologist about it. Hang in there, and good luck with it. His training will serve him well in the long run!
11079760 tn?1483389730 Be gentle with that tennis ball -- I have used it before for various knotted up muscles and sciatic nerve pain. It is a little tough to take. I am so sorry you are dealing with so much pain! So you think any of your workouts have aggravated these areas? Have you tried cat and cow back stretches? I have had good success with these in the past for sciatic nerve/lower back pain. And it is waaaay more gentle than the tennis ball!
Avatar m tn Well that's my reward after all these years of exercising, no fat, 20 Percent Body Fat, 120/80 B.P., 63 pulse, workouts 1hr 30 min. 5 times per week, tennis 2 times per week and weight lifting 3 times per week. His answer was: If you had not been working out and doing the exercise etc., we probably would not be in this room talking together. He said a lot of it is due to heredity but what you were doing was extremely instrumental in saving you from a possible catastrophic heart attack.
