It needs to be investigated. Investigations advised - hb, tlc, dlc, esr, sugar f & pp, uric acid, vit d3 urine r/e x ray of the affected part. Anyway you may try- sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick mattress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Do hot fomantation. Paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck back knee & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, inform.

If we masturbate daily do it effect on premature ejaculations and can we give birth to child? Do it effect our health.

If we masturbate daily do it effect on premature ejaculations and can we give birth to child? Do it effect our health.
Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Masturbation is normal, natural and never unhealthy. Even animals do masturbate. As a human being, you are also an animal. Every animal has sexual instinct because they are designed to reproduce. Human being also has sexual instinct and therefore he needs to satisfy sexual instinct. Therefore, to satisfy sexual instinct, a man or woman, masturbates. In any case, masturbation is never unhealthy or will never affect your physical or sexual health or it cannot affect your future sex life and the ability to have children. Masturbation cannot affect your growth or cause pimples or cause hair fall or cause shrinkage of penis or loss of vital nutrients etc. You should try to reduce the masturbation frequency to thrice a week and continue masturbation. You can be sure; there are no side effects to masturbation if you are able to restrict it to thrice a week. I suggest online sex counseling and therapy. Take care.

Dear, the most common causes of weakness are * anemia * metabolic disorder (diabetes, hypothyroidism) * breathing problems (asthma, sinusitis) *digestion problems (diarrhea, gestric ulcers) * cervical spondylosis first check out your haemoglobin (hb), if your hb is low, then eat a lot of green vehetables and iron rich foods like apple, guava, sapotas (cheeku, beet root and oranges. Takeiron suppliments for increase in hb. If your hb level is normal then your all parts of body get adequate level of oxygen. 2. Take deep breaths atleast for 10-15 minutes twice a day. 3. Check out the blood sugar fasting in every 6 months. If blood sugar level, then take proper medicines for high sugar level. 4. In thyroid disorder, there is a feeling of weakness and tiredness. Check out your thyroid profile, if you feel tired even after the proper deit and medicines and take treatment. 5. In the morning, do medication regulary, do pranayam atleast for 5 -10 minute. It will make your hormones level normal.

It depends on type of ovarian cyst. Looking at your age, it must be functional cyst only and may require hormonal treatment. Still need to know more things about the cyst, your menstrual problem and family history. So better you consult your gynaecologist or me privately.

What should be the proper healthy diet for a thyroid patient like me, non vej or vej?

What should be the proper healthy diet for a thyroid patient like me, non vej or vej?
The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped gland situated at the front side of the neck, right below the Adam’s apple. Although small in size, it has a huge impact on almost all the metabolic processes that take place in the body. Two most common problems of the thyroid gland – namely hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism, involve abnormal production of thyroid hormones.Before getting on with the list of foods to eat and avoid in hypothyroidism, it is important to know what hypothyroidism is. Fish is the first and most important food item in the list of healthy foods for the natural treatment for hypothyroidism because of its essential fatty acids content. The healthy omega 3 fatty acids present in oily fishes like salmon, tuna, sardines and trout helps t reduce inflammation, improve immune power and lower the risk of heart diseases in people suffering from hypothyroidism. A fruit and vegetable detox diet plan is exceptionally popular among health conscious people because these foods help cleanse the system and flush out toxins from the body. But antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables are extremely beneficial for controlling hypothyroidism as well. They work almost like natural remedies for hypothyroidism by controlling weight gain – one of the main hypothyroid symptoms. Seaweed is a rich source of iodine – an essential nutrient for thyroid function that works like a precursor for the production of thyroid hormone. avoid soya products,cauliflower,brocelly,cabbage ,refind food ,fatty and processed food and alcohal, Hyperthyroidism? omega3.vitamin D rich food.DAIRY PRODUCTS.Vegetables. avoid....food high in iodine.high carbs,refind food and oil. please send your feed back

Why porn stars have a very big penis? Is it natural or they use any drugs to grow penis length? Is it possible for normal people who wants to increase size?

Porn stars work in a movie that is developed for sexually stimulating people, so probably people with larger penis size are given preference. This is almost the same way as in movies heroes are very handsome and have well built bodies. That doesnot necessarily mean that everyone in normal world has similar features. Penis length can be increased during sex to some extent above the usual levels in a person by using sexual stimulating medications. However the effect remains temporary.
