@runako Hello, Iron is an essential mineral that is part of all cells in your body. The iron in red blood cells is located in hemoglobin, which is a protein that carries oxygen from the lungs to other parts of the body. Having too little iron leads to anemia because your body lacks enough hemoglobin to transport oxygen. Iron deficiency can also cause tingling in your arms and legs. Tingling of the arms and legs is an abnormal sensation that can result from low levels of iron. Reduced blood supply to your hands and feet causes tingling sensations. Iron deficiency anemia may leave you tired and short of breath. Please talk to your doctor, eat healthy, and exercise. Thanks!

RE: Can anyone suggest a test that can identify the cause of male infertility?
@ridaz Hello, Post-ejaculation urinalysis. Sperm in your urine can indicate your sperm are traveling backward into the bladder instead of out your penis during ejaculation retrograde ejaculation. Other tests like Scrotal ultrasound, Transrectal ultrasound, Hormone testing, Post-ejaculation urinalysis, Genetic tests, Testicular biopsy, and Specialized sperm function tests can be helpful. A number of tests can be used to check how well your sperm survive after ejaculation, how well they can penetrate an egg, and whether there's any problem attaching to the egg. Thanks!
RE: Chest pain continuously for 3 days, and pain in my arms, shoulders, and neck.
@lirik Hello, GERD, but with the family history you have, I strongly advise you get yourself checked at once. Then you can relax, knowing exactly what's going on and what you need (or don't need) to do about it. GERD can mimic heart pain very accurately, which only clouds the picture. This is the likely cause of your discomfort, but if the symptoms are new it is far better to err on the side of caution and ease your mind. Go see a doctor or get medical help and find out for sure. If it's GERD there are things that can be done to get it under control. If it's something else you need to know that too. Thanks!!!

RE: Is it safe to take contraceptive pills during breastfeeding?
@mie Hello, You may want to avoid birth control that contains the hormone estrogen. Estrogen has been linked to lowered milk supply in breastfeeding mothers. That said, there are still plenty of options available for both preventing pregnancy and protecting you against sexually transmitted infections (STIs). If you're breastfeeding, you can safely use hormonal methods. They won't hurt you or your baby. Some birth control pills could curb your milk supply, which would make it harder to feed your baby. It’s true that some hormones may have that effect. But not all do. There are two types of pills. Combination ones include the hormones estrogen and progestin and another has only progestin. So when you tell your doctor that you’re breastfeeding they'll probably prescribe the mini-pill. It shouldn’t affect your milk supply at all. You can talk to your doctor. Thanks!
RE: I have lump under my arm. What it could be?
@ssidy Hello, A lump in the armpit can have many causes. These include swollen lymph nodes, infections, or cysts. The lymphatic system filters fluid from around cells. It is an important part of the immune system. Bumps that are cancerous are typically large, hard, painless to the touch, and appear spontaneously. The mass will grow in size steadily over the weeks and months. Cancerous lumps that can be felt from the outside of your body can appear in the breast, testicle, or neck, but also in the arms and legs. You should contact your healthcare provider if the armpit lump: Doesn't go away after two weeks. Feels hard and painful. Thanks!
RE: How much sleep does my child need?
@casey-0 Sleep is of paramount importance to young children. it’s normal for parents to want to make sure that their children, whether babies or young kids, get the sleep that they need. Babies spend the majority of their day sleeping. The normal amount of time that babies sleep depends on their age. newborns spend between 14 and 17 hours sleeping every day. Because of the need for feeding, this sleep is usually broken up into a number of shorter periods. While the bulk of total sleep happens at night, it’s rare for newborns to sleep through the night without waking up. Thanks!!

RE: What is walking pneumonia?
@madhusudhan Hello, Walking pneumonia is often caused by a type of bacterium that produces milder symptoms that come on more gradually than do those of other types of pneumonia. The illness often is brought home by young children who contract it at school. Symptoms generally start 15 to 25 days after you’re exposed to mycoplasma and slowly get worse over 2 to 4 days. Symptoms include chest pain, sore throat, and headache. Many over-the-counter medicines for cold and flu may not relieve all of your symptoms. If anyone has the symptoms mentioned above should talk to her doctor. Thank You!!!!
RE: I have a pain in my left eye. What it could be?
@vilata Hello, you either have a Stye or a Chalazion on your left eyelid. Styes and chalazions are both caused by the clogging and inflammation of the sebaceous glands that line the inside surface of the eyelid. Styes resemble a pimple and are painful, usually self-limited to 1-2 weeks, resolve spontaneously, and cause no residual damage. Chalazion, on the other hand, has a gradual onset, is non-tender, takes months to years to resolve, and also heals without any residual damage. Therefore, home treatment with hot compresses for 20 minutes a day is the best treatment. If the pain becomes worse, your eye becomes red, your eye or eyelid becomes swollen, or you develop blurring vision, go to your primary care doctor immediately for an evaluation. Thanks!!!
