I don't care what you think. If you don't want an honest answer, then don't ask a question asking for one.

  • Is the North American Union and the Amero an urban legend, or is it really something to worry about?

    I've heard conflicting information on this, and I can't find anything on the web that I could consider credible. One of my friends was telling me of this, and I would like to know what you all think.

  • How long does the sore throat last after surgery?

    I had a stapedectomy done for otosclerosis. I know that it's the anesthesia tube they crammed down my throat, but it hurts when I swallow anything now.

    Have any of you had this as an after-effect of surgery, and how long does it last?

  • I went to the doc today, and she said that I have fluid in my ears... Is this serious?

    She said that my ears weren't infected, but that there was a lot of fluid in there which could be causing my hearing loss, headaches, unsteadiness, and tinnitus. She refered me to an ENT specialist, but I can't get there until Tuesday.

    My ears aren't stopped up, but I DO have a bit of a head cold, and want to know how common it is for this problem to cause other larger problems (like mennigitis, for one).

    Any answers would be largely appreciated.

  • I'm really out of shape. Just started doing cardio 30 min. each day 5 days ago. When will I feel better?

    My resting heart rate was 80-90 BPM, and my heart rate would go up just doing simple things. I was pretty sedentary for over a year, due to the fact that I spent the majority of it pregnant with my daughter. I wasn't in wonderful cardiovascular shape in the first place, though.

    Now, I am not overweight (still within a normal BMI, although I have a few pounds to still shed from the pregnancy). I succumbed to smoking again after the pregnancy, I eat a good diet, and drink plenty of water.

    I also had a normal EKG and blood enzyme test. I don't think that there's anything wrong with my heart (those tests would have shown it if there was, right?).

    I want to know when I'm going to start feeling better. I've maintained 120-130 BPM during moderate cardio exercise (brisk walking about a mile and a half a night). I hate walking up a flight of stairs and getting out of breath!

  • Why is my resting heart rate faster in the mornings than in the afternoon?

    It's weird. I'll wake up, and my heart rate rests at 80 BPM. In the afternoon, though, it rests at about 70. Is there a scientific reason for this?

  • Has anyone here had a heart attack? What does it feel like?

    I have had a vague pain in my left arm, and I feel nauseas. There's a stomach bug in my house, though, so that may explain the nausea. I've had a history of anxiety, though, and I worry about EVERYTHING. Right now, though, it's interferring with my life. My heart beats real fast, and I am terrified that I am going to drop dead at any minute. A little history. I'm 29, a mom of two, within a normal BMI, a smoker, and using hormonal birth control (Mirena IUD).

    At any rate, I want to know if you're really having a heart attack, is it different than the vague pains you get with anxiety?

  • How strong is the pain in the left arm during a MI?

    I'm fairly certain that I have had yet another panic attack, because the Xanax helped with the majority of the symptoms, but I've got a lingering pain in my left arm. It's not a horrible pain. It's more like a dull ache.

    I'm 29, normal BMI, a little underactive, and a smoker. Diet's not too bad. Low cholesterol, low carbs.

    Is this a heart attack, or is this the residuals of a panic attack? Is the left arm pain crushing during a MI?

  • Sinus tachycardia and exercise?

    My heart rate has gone up to 120 bpm, but that has only been a couple of times. I am 29, a smoker, and have been pretty inactive for the past year and a half. While I was in shape, I didn't have this problem.

    Do you think that exercise is okay, and that it will alleviate the problem? My resting heart rate averages about 80-90 bpm.

  • Anxiety or heart problems?

    Okay, so, a little history. I just had a baby four and a half months ago. I remember having sinus tachycardia when I was pregnant, and thought that it had stopped, and it HAD, for a while. While I'm not overweight, I am extremely out of shape. I also have a history of anxiety. I am 29, and up until the past few years, I was always really active. The EKG I had when I was pregnant showed no abnormalities.

    So, now, I have a fairly rapid heart rate. At rest, it's about 80-90 beats a minute. When I do even simple things, I get winded and my heart starts beating much faster.

    I would like to go to a doctor, however, the last thing I want is the embarrassment of hearing "Here, let me prescribe you Prozac".

  • I just had a baby, and I am trying to lose about 20 lbs...?

    I'm still within a normal BMI, but I am not the size that I was, and certainly not the size that I want to be.

    I am 5'2", 140 lbs, and in a size 6 jeans. I know that the closer that you get to your ideal weight, the harder it is to lose. I need to know how to lose this. I feel like a lard-butt. I've never been a size 6 in my life! :(

  • Do babies lose their appetite when teething?

    My two-month old daughter is teething, and she's not eating the way that she usually does... Instead of four ounces, she's only eating about two...

  • Mirena IUD... How long is the cramping supposed to last after insertion?

    I got it put in on Thursday, 7-19, and it seems that the spotting and cramping are worse than when they put it in. The spotting is, DEFINITELY. How long does it take for this crap to go away?

    BTW, I just had a baby eight weeks ago, and had still not had my first menstrual cycle... Could the heavier spotting be my period?

    I have to know if there's some kind of end in sight. This sucks. :(

  • When did you get your daughter's ears pierced?

    MY husband and I are at a disagreement on this. I feel that when Sammi asks, she's old enough. My husband, though, feels that she shouldn't get it done until she's eleven or twelve. I'm strict, as a parent, but I feel that's silly.

  • Who has had side effects with the Mirena IUD?

    My daughter is six weeks old, and I want to get one put in (we are undecided as to whether or not we want more children, so, we want to leave the option open). My doctor told me that this would be a reliable method of BC, because I was irregular in the first place.

    I'm worried about side effects, though. I tend to have mood swings quite easily, and want to know if anyone else has experienced this (or any other unpleasantness associated with the IUD).

    Thanks!

  • How much formula should I give a 4 week old?

  • Separation Anxiety???

    My daughter is almost 4 weeks old. My mother told me and my husband that we needed to get out, and that she would watch Samantha ALL NIGHT. I know that we need the break, and I know that we need the sleep (heck, we haven't slept in a month).

    When I left, though, I was absolutely horrified that something bad would happen to my daughter (even though my mother has CONSTANTLY taken care of my eight year old son since he was an infant)... I'm scared to death of leaving her alone...

    Please tell me that this is normal... I miss her SOOO much ALREADY, and I just left her with my parents about an hour ago. :(

  • My postpartum exam is on Tuesday. It's been 4 wks since I had her. Will they let me have sex again?

    I'm going stir crazy here, BAD. I know that they will generally have you come in at 6 weeks, but this is when the appointment was set.

    Mu husband and I are going nuts over here. We're almost crawling out of our skin. My delivery was uncomplicated, and there were no stitches. The lochia has almost stopped.

    Has anyone's doc given them the OK to have sex again this soon?
