  • Probiotic and stomach cramps?

    I started taking a probiotic to help with regularity. I've lost 50lbs eating clean/exercising and despite my clean diet my bowel movements were really irregular. The first day I took them I felt fine but now on day 4 my stomach has been cramping up so bad and it doesn't go away when I go to the bathroom. Its been 2 days and the cramps havent subsided. It has helped with regularity but I'm wondering if this is my body getting used to it or if I really can't tolerate it. It's a probiotic chew with fiber from gnc and you can take up to 5/day but I only take 1. Any suggestions?

  • Is something eating at my garden?

    I've noticed small holes on my arugula, lettuce, and eggplant leaves. Is this normal or is something getting at my garden? I don't see any bugs in my garden except ants.

  • Eating clean but not losing weight?

    I've been eating clean for a while now and lost about 16lbs and did weight watchers before that so I've lost about 55lbs total and switched to eating clean when I reached a plateau on weight watchers. I'm eating very strictly monitoring my calorie intake using my fitness pal app and eating around 1200 calories of mostly veggies chicken fish 2 fruits a day brown rice once a week and oats in the morning with egg whites. I usually eat smaller meals too about 5 a day. I work out 5-6 days a week running lifting weights doing the elliptical yoga. I try to change up my workouts. By doing all this I've reached a point where I lose 1lb every 2 weeks. It's really discouraging. Any advice? Ill be satisfied with losing 1lb a week

  • Can I cut the dead leaves off my vegetable plants?

    I think a combination of hot days and very cold nights (40 degrees) and transplant shock basically killed my cucumbers, eggplant, and basil. All the leaves are burnt looking like a brown color and shriveled. Is the whole root dead? If I cut off the leaves will a new plant grow back? Or should I just rip it all up and start again?

  • What is the best tick repellant?

    I have a huge tick problem in my yard even though it is landscaped. What works best to keep ticks off me? I bought a natural spray with various essential oils that doesn't work and typical OFF deep woods bug spray doesn't work either.

  • What pesticide will work best to kill ticks?

    I started a garden this year but it appears that I'm not going to be able to maintain my garden until I get this tick situation under control. There are ticks everywhere. On my dogs on me on my plants in the dirt. It is a huge tick infestation. I've managed to find a bug repellant with oils that seem to do a little better with repelling the ticks but they end up in my hair and inside my clothes where the bug spray wasn't sprayed. My lawn is landscaped but my garden is in the back towards the woods although still next to the lawn. My neighbor has about 8 horses which I think may contribute to this. Can I buy a pesticide that will kill them all without harming my veggies? What kind works best for ticks? Should I spray just the perimeter of my garden? What about spray for me and my dogs? Any recommendations? I'm willing to try anything because Im so disgusted with this and freak out every time I go to my garden!

  • Vegetable plants too cold?

    I planted a lot of vegetables/herbs and the last 2 nights have been cold (40 degrees) although today was 80 degrees. I think they got too cold because they are all dying on me! Tomato plants are turning brownish. My basil is shriveled up and brown. My cucumber and eggplant plants as well as pumpkin have all shriveled up too. It seems as though spinach was the only one to last because I know it can handle cooler temps better. What do I do to make them come back??

  • hemorrhoid? Treatment?

    I noticed a tender lump on the outside of my butt after having a bowel movement the other day. It is sore especially when I walk and can get itchy. Preparation H and witch hazel wipes don't seem to be making it any better. Sometimes I feel like it even irritates it more because it will have a burning feeling after I use it. It doesn't hurt to poop and there isn't any blood. I have a healthy diet, exercise regularly, but I think I have had hemorrhoids before but they have always been internal ones. Is this a hemorrhoid? How long will it take to heal?

  • hemorrhoid or something else?

    I noticed after I had a bowel movement a few days ago that there is a lump on the outside of my butt.It is sore and tender, especially when I walk. I exercise and eat healthy, so if this is a hemorrhoid, I don't know how I got it. I've been using preparation H and wipes with witch hazel in it and it doesn't seem to be getting any smaller. Sometimes I feel pain when I poop but not always and there hasn't been any blood. Is this a hemorroid? something else? Is preparation H going to help eventually? I dont know what to do but I'm scared to go to the bathroom...

  • HELP! sharp, sudden pain left, lower back?

    I keep getting this random sharp pain on my lower back on the left side. Like right above my hip. It's always sudden, like I won't be doing anything and it lasts a minute or two and then goes away. It's almost like a really big cramp. I have no other symptoms, and I'm 21 years old and healthy. Could it be something with my kidney? I'm freaking out.

  • HELP! heart burn or ulcer?

    I've had a bad cold all week and took some Advil cold and sinus for 3 days, but only like 3/day 4 at the most. My cold was almost gone but I took another 1 yesterday and today for a headache and now I have heart burn I think. I've never really had heart burn before but I'm having this burning feeling in my chest (between my breasts). Is it just heart burn? How do I know if it is an ulcer? I'm in a panic and 1 pepto bismol didn't do much.

  • help! Blood clot question!?

    I'm 21 and generally healthy besides being overweight. I'm active during the summer but usually during school I'm mostly sitting during the day with 10 minute walks to class a few times a day. However, recently my legs have been getting this aching pain at night and I'm petrified of blood clots. Sometimes its in my calves or sometimes its like behind my knees if I've been crossing my legs (which I try not to do because I know its bad). Would this be the start of blood clots? Would it be blood clots? Or is it just that my legs ache from not getting enough circulation? I waitress during the summer and in january so I'm always on my feet and noticed that I am starting to get small varicose veins, but during school is when my legs seem to get this ache. Any suggestions?

  • Dog training problems?

    I have three dogs, 2 yorkies and a maltese. They are 7 years old and I've always had a big issue with the 2 males marking their territory all over the house, but besides that, they are trained to go on their pee pads and outside. I decided to leave the 2 yorkies (male and female) at my house and take the maltese (male) with me to my apartment at school to see if I can train him better. It's been a week and he won't go to the bathroom outside. I've been trying to train him to go on the pee pad, which is by the door and he has gone there a few times. When he goes on the pad, I praise him and give him treats. However, he has not pooped there. When he has gone pee on the rug, I've cleaned it with pet stain removal and put the towel on his pee pad so he can learn thats where he needs to go. I've told him NO when he has gone on the rug. When I see him about to poop, I say NO, carry him to the pee pad, but he won't end up going until I end up leaving. Am I scaring him? I keep him in the living room when I'm gone and he has no access to any other room. I'm also confused as to why he loves to hide his bones under his pee pads and mess them up when he should know that he has to pee there.

    My questions are what am I doing wrong? How do I get him to poop on the pee pad? If I keep doing this will he learn to go on the pee pad all the time?
