Patient discussion about large

Q. I have a pain in my big toe, what is it? I keep on having shooting pains from my big toe, especially at night. What could it be from?

A. Go see your Doctor as he can determine the joint's condition with an X-ray. Arthritis (such as arthritis caused by gout) is among the most common reasons for toe pain.

Q. Any help would be great, I feel as confused as what to go on with my body. I got married 3 days back and this morning I woke up really hungry, which is unusual for me, so I got a bowl of my favorite granola cereal, and couldn't even eat half of it, and I started to feel like I was going to throw up. How early can you start getting symptoms? This is our first time trying, and it is not normal for me to feel sick to my stomach, and also, I do feel different down, I'm not sure how to describe it, I just don't feel my usual self. Any help would be great, I feel as confused as what to go on with my body. Oh also, I have a bad headache, I never get headaches.

A. While some women don't experience symptoms for a while, or maybe even not at all, there are some cases where women can start experience morning sickness and such as soon as they conceive. Although I'm sure that it's really rare. It sounds like it's been 3 days since. You may be one of the "lucky" ones to feel symptoms right away. I really hope that could be pregnant. So keep us posted.

Q. How many minutes a day can I walk. Any help would be great. I’m Lesa 28 yrs old and I’m 14 weeks pregnant, this is my first pregnancy. I like to join in prenatal yoga. When can I join and until what time I should continue it. How many minutes a day can I walk. Any help would be great.

A. yes, agree with both two answers above..

a regular exercise before pregnancy and even during pregnancy are believed to be related with significant reduction in labor pain. besides, by doing regular exercise you can help strengthening your muscles and bones, and also stretch some pelvic muscle that will benefit when the time comes for you to deliver the wonderful baby.

I once wrote an article about water aerobic during pregnancy, you can check it out here :
