Q. second wind

My cousin is an experienced aerobic for nearly 2 years. She does vigorous exercises. How a ''second wind'' affects her and what is it?
AThe term ‘second wind is mostly known to the people who are related to the fitness. No matter how fit you are, the first few minutes into vigorous exercise you'll feel out of breath, and your muscles may ache. Your body isn't able to transport oxygen to the active muscles quickly enough. As a result, your muscles burn carbohydrates an aerobically, causing an increase in lactic acid production. Gradually, your body makes the transition to aerobic metabolism and begins to burn nutrients (carbohydrates and fats) aerobically. This shift over to aerobic metabolism coincides with your getting ''back in stride'' (a.k.a. the ''second wind''). The more you train and the more fit you become, the sooner you will get your ''breath'' back and reach an aerobic steady state that you can maintain for a relatively extended duration.

Q. What is the second phase of alcohol rehab?

I guess the first one is well known... admitting you are addicted, but then what?
A1anybody??? advises about the second phase of rehab??
A2but what does it include? I'm trying to help my dad go through rehab but I'm doing it myself since he doesn't want to be in a group of strangers. What should I make him do in this phase?
A3The second phase in any rehabilitation process, including from alcohol, is actually the more difficult one to maintain. It is based on the will power and ways of dealing with the psychological addiction, rather than the medical, physiologic one that has been previously addressed.

Q. what to expect from second month of pregnancy?

My wife is pregnant for the first time and I'm knowledgeless...what should I expect from her second month? pain? moods? anything else I should know??
A1Thanks zoe2008, you've helped a lot! The craving thing is indeed happening, I've never bought so many sweet potato in my life!!!
A2During the first trimester of pregnancy you can expect your wife to experience extreme nausea and even vomiting (otherwise known as "morning sickness") , which is caused by a sudden elevation in certain hormones, especially the 'pregnancy' hormone (beta-HCG). Abdominal discomfort and distention might occur as well. Some women experience mood changes but it is not common. Sensitivity to certain smell is very common- especially to coffee, and the reason for this is somewhat unkown. A change in taste is also seen in early pregnancy and women tend to crave certain food that they don't normally eat.

Q. What are first, second and third degree burns?

What’s the difference between them and do they get treated in a different way?
A1Pain management for burns can be difficult since burns differ in type and severity. There are three types of burns:

First-degree burns are considered mild compared to other burns. They result in pain and reddening of the epidermis (outer layer of the skin).

Second-degree burns affect the epidermis and the dermis (lower layer of skin). They cause pain, redness, swelling, and blistering.

Third-degree burns go through the dermis and affect deeper tissues. They result in white or blackened, charred skin that may be numb.
Hope this helps.
A2The first is regular redness that all you do is put body lotion on is with moisturizer.. second is blisters you avoid popping and allover can come in handy. Third- that’s a different story, that hospitalization+ a special bandage that doesn’t stick to your skin.
Hope I helped 8)
A3 Very simple- first degree- redness of skin and pain. You probably had that one before…
Second – there are nasty little blisters or even big ones. All the second degree area is surrounded with a first degree burn.
Third – no pain any more and it’s a total burn of the skin. A black horrible burn that you can actually see the extra cellular matrix underneath the skin. I realy hope that you haven’t experienced that before…

Q. Do women in second month of pregnancy tend to have shaky hands?

Or is it just my wife?? Cause it's actually kind of scary...
A1tanks Annabelle, we're waiting for the results...the doctor also suggested blood tests...
A2Tremor that had just started during early pregnancy could be suggestive of blood electrolye imbalance due to vomiting, therefore if this is a new phenomenon for your wife and she does not consume large amounts of caffeine containing liquids, she should go and take some blood tests to check up on that. Tremor is usually a normal physiologic response, and is called 'essential tremor' , which does not require any medical attention (and is especially common in several family members). However because you say your wife is pregnant, I think getting some blood tests done can't hurt.

Q. My daughter had lost her pregnancy in the second trimester.

Something is going wrong with my daughter. She had lost her pregnancy in the second trimester. Something wrong was found in her ultrasound report. The situation was described as a molar pregnancy. After this miscarriage, still she is on regular examination. The very strange part is that they are still taking her hCG tests after her miscarriage. What sort of problem is this?
A1A molar pregnancy is a mass of tissue (hydatidiform mole) that forms an abnormal placenta inside the uterus. Even though it is not an embryo, a mole triggers symptoms of pregnancy. And the pregnancy test will result in positive value also. About 1 out of 1,000 women with early pregnancy symptoms has a molar pregnancy.

A molar pregnancy triggers the same first-trimester symptoms that a normal pregnancy does (a missed menstrual period, breast tenderness, fatigue, increased urination, morning sickness). It may be diagnosed during an early ultrasound test. In addition to normal pregnancy signs, a molar pregnancy usually causes additional symptoms, which can include:

Here are the most characteristic symptoms of a molar pregnancy :
Vaginal bleeding, a bigger size uterus that is abnormally large for the length of the pregnancy, severe nausea and vomiting, pelvic discomfort.

If you are diagnosed with a molar pregnancy, you will need immediate treatment to remove all molar growth fro
A2In a molar pregnancy the abnormal tissue grows in the uterus. It grows into an abnormal placenta. Till the first trimester it shows all the normal symptoms of the pregnancy. At the end of first trimester it shows the symptoms such as vaginal bleeding, high nausea and discomfort in the pelvic area. The course of pregnancy normally carries with the abnormal mass inside the uterus before these symptoms become worse and then they are treated. After miscarriage, some abnormal mass may still remain and can get placed in uterus again to grow more rapidly. This can be checked by regular blood tests for hCG as their levels increase post molar pregnancy treatment. If not checked this can grow into a tumor.

Q. What causes a warm sensation in your foot I have a warm sensation at sole of left foot lasting 5-10 second

From time to time I get a warm sensation at the sole of my foot lasting about 5-10 seconds. Started about 2 months ago.
AFrankly? Although it's tempting to try to give you diagnosis here, these kinds of complaints are so varied and can point to so many different directions I would refrain from doing it. In my opinion you should see a doctor. It's impossible to give a diagnosis based on one line. Sorry...
