walking helps with sour stomach
A: oh sweeite, Im so sorry how hard it is when you have a little baby that is upset like that.
At 7 weeks a breastfed babies poo is always runny, I am breastfeeding my 5 month old and his is still very loose. Exclusively Breastfed babys dont usually get constipated. they can often go a day or two between motions and be fine.
Are you sure she is constipated? I ask this because everything youve mentioned reminds me of colic, but colic isnt related to consitpation, it is a completely different thing. Colic is awful too as theres no good reason for it and nothing they can do.
If I were you, I would try NOT giving baby anything for a few days, as the extra things you give could infact give her wind and make her tummy hurt. I dont think they are necessairly making things worse, but 7 week old babies who are completely breastfed (no formula) dont need anything at all usually as breast milk is enough.
I wish I could be more help. I know how you feel, I have been there with my 3rd baby who had colic and reflux.
I would like to suggest you try an osteopathic Therapist (massage specalist) who does cranial massage (massages the head and shoulders etc) as that helped wonders wiht my daughters colic.
Goodluck, either way I hope shes better soon, I know it might be hard to believe, but she wont be like that forever.
Please do keep up with the doctor if you feel something is wrong, sometimes the mums can just tell (mothers instint)
Q: What can I do for my dog who ate too many treats?
This is so embarrassing… So after feeding our dog earlier (2-year-old 70-lb. German Shorthaired Pointer mix), my husband left the lid off of the rubbermaid bin we keep the dog food and treats in. The bin is in the dog’s room… you see where this is going. She ate about 10 ounces of the Old Mother Hubbard P-Nuttier treats (the little ones), and a couple ounces of liver training treats (all this in addition to her normal evening meal).
She’s been acting anxious, but I’ve been letting her out once every 30-60 min. in hopes that she’ll poop again (she did when I let her out after I came home earlier), but she’s only peed a couple times. She’s been drinking more water than normal and her belly is slightly larger than usual. It’s late, so I haven’t been able to take her on a real walk; I’ve just been walking her around the perimeter of our property in hopes that it’ll help move things along, so she’ll poo again. She hasn’t vomited. I’ve been restricting her activity (no jumping on the couch or bed), and our several short walks have been calm (no running or jogging).
My husband is certain that she’ll just have a sour stomach for the night, and that she’ll be fine by morning. I’m paranoid, though, and I worry that this might end up with her experiencing bloat. What should I do? Should I suck it up and take her to the emergency vet, or am I being overly cautious and will things work themselves out overnight?
Thanks for any help.
A: CALL the ER vet.. the biggest dangers right now would be bloat and pancreatis.. they can tell you what to look out for.
Q: Sour taste in mouth due to intake of sleeping pills? HELP?
I’ve been taking sleeping pills for 3 months now. They contain zolpidem tartrate. Ever since, I’ve had this sour taste in my mouth. At first I thought it was nothing. After a while, even after the 3 months, the sour taste persisted, and it bothered me all night long, leaving me with insomnia at night. I’m pretty sure this has to due with the sleeping pills damaging my stomach or liver or something. I have a pain in the stomach/liver area. Recently I have fallen ill for 5 days to date, and suffered from nausea, diarrhea, headache, weakness, persisting sour taste in the mouth. This illness began on a busy day when I woke up early after a night of sleeplessness, went on a car ride, got carsick, delivered something, gave something to someone else who lived a few blocks away, got into the car again, got extremely carsick due to the driver heating the car, was dropped off and I dropped something off again, went home, didn’t rest, drop something off, and walked quite a lot (a lot more than a few blocks – to one place that’s pretty far away and back home again). By that time I was so tired and so weak I felt I could hardly stand and retain consciousness. And that’s how it was for 5 days. I’ve been getting better, but I still have this sour taste. I have a feeling all this is connected. Can someone please help?
A: This doesn’t sound like side-effects from Ambien. Sounds more like food poisoning.
I have noted that those pills (I take 20 mg/night) taste really yucky in my mouth. I make sure to take them with food and get them down quickly. They taste bitter to me.
Weight the pros against the cons. Lunesta has that same problem. Maybe try a different sleep aid?
Q: What should I do if I accidentally consumed blood?
Ok so I’m completely grossed out. This morning my throat was kind of stopped-up, like in the sense that I feel like I’m gonna throw up, but I didn’t feel sick.
So I went to the school nurse and asked her what I should do. She said to drink some water. She told me to take a cup from the counter and go over to the sink and get some cold water. And drink it. She pointed to a stack of small paper cups, the laminated, white with teal and purple kind of random stripes on them. They were stacked neatly on the counter, so I thought they were clean. I picked one up, without looking twice at it (my mistake) and went over to the sink and put water in it. I drink some, and I taste something weird, and salty-ish and it kind of tastes like rust, I notice.
I look at the edge of my cup and there is blood on the cup WTF?!?! It was definitely not mine, because I would have felt it. I am so shocked I literally cannot speak. I run out of the nurse’s office. duh.
And when I was walking down the hall I find a peppermint in my pocket and suck on it aggressively because what else can I do?! I walk into class with a sour expression on my face and I got some weird looks but I really didn’t want to tell anyone what happened because I was afraid that they would get grossed out, as I am!!!!
WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO ME?!?! AND IT WASN’T MY BLOOD SO THAT’S EVEN WORSE, RIGHT?! I still have an extremely sick feeling in my stomach and throat from it, and it’s like I can smell it…
A: It’s definitely gross, but not likely that anything will happen. Most of the blood-borne pathogens would not survive sitting on a cup for more than a few minutes, and the acid in your stomach would kill most of the rest. You cannot get AIDS this way. About the only thing you could get would be hepatitis A, but its not very likely that anyone in your school would have hepatitis A – it usually occurs in large outbreaks or not at all.
Q: I am a new mom who feels everyone is judging me. This is causing me a lot of grief. How can I learn to cope?
I am 32 and just had my first child three weeks ago. The pregnancy was quite a shock to everyone as I never thought I’d have a baby. I have always been very independent and never was a ‘kid’ person, or one who appeared to have a real interest in kids, so there were many people who just couldn’t see me with a child of my own … especially since I was rarely around kids. Although these past few weeks have been stressful, my son is truly a joy to have. However, I feel everyone is watching how I act around the baby or how I refer to the baby in conversation. At first I just ignored this but now it is really starting to drive me insane.
Here are some examples:
My mother inlaw came to stay with us for several days after I got out the hospital. She was a great help but drove me nuts. There were two instances where she told me, “Stop shaking him” while I was feeding him. I was just gently shaking my leg or rocking him back and forth. Her theory is the milk will sour on his stomach. I ignored her both times but she would just sit and watch me while I was doing this.
I was in the kitchen one afternoon and she kept taking my hand and puting it at the back of the baby’s head. I had him positioned so his head was resting on my shoulder and he was asleep. She insisted I hold his head although I already knew to do so, but since he was secured on my shoulder I felt it wasn’t necessary.
My mother inlaw is always ragging on her adopted son and his girlfriend, about what they do and don’t do for their daughter. She is 11 months old and had a terrible diaper rash. My mother inlaw said it was because they didn’t change her often enough. She made that comment that we better not let our son get ‘burnt’ down there like that.
I was talking to my mother inlaw on the phone the other day and she just made the comment that, “You’re going to have to stop reading those books (referring to reading information online) and learn what to do for your baby yourself!” I’m not an idiot. I read all sorts of things because I like to see what others have been through. But the best method is to get in tune with your child yourself. I guess I’m too dumb to know this.
One of my friends came to town to visit last week. We have been friends since the 6th grade but there was a point where I felt I couldn’t trust her because she is a jealous type person toward anyone in her life. She has always been that way. While she was here I caught her looking at me on the sly while I was burping my baby. In a sarcastic tone she said, “Babies still need to be burped?” She has a 14 year old son that her grandmother raised. Not because she was unable to raise him but I guess it was because she just wasn’t ready to be a parent.
My own mother seems withdrawn from my baby. She wasn’t here when he was born but my grandmother passed a week after he was born so she had to come to town for her funeral. My husband picked her up from the airport and she wanted to stop by to see him. She took one look at him and said, “Mmm … he looks just like ______ (my mother inlaw).” She has always seemed jealous of my inlaws so I wasn’t surprised when she said this. Then she went on to say he kind of favors my husband’s eldest niece who is no blood relation to them (through his adopted brother). She said this in a sarcastic tone.
On another occasion she was at my house and I was walking around the house with the baby talking to him. She, out of the blue, walked up to him and kissed him on his cheek a couple of times and said, in an aggressive tone, “He needs to be kissed!” I had cold sores on my mouth (and have gotten them since I was four) so obviously I didn’t want to kiss him. But because everyone has his perception of me, because I am not an overly affectionate person, she assumed I am not giving him the affection he needs. I was really offended by this.
We went out to eat last weekend and she babysat our baby for a few hours. We were talking on the phone the next day, and in that same sarcastic tone, she said, “I mean he looks just like ______ (my mother inlaw) and she sure does have her lips.”
A: Wow, do I know some of your pain! I was 28 when I had my son and was the same, told everybody no kids for me and my husband of 9 years…So, when we got pregnant it was also a surprise to everyone! Not to mention how life changing and wonderful a baby is, it’s also very stressful. You don’t need these comments and attitudes towards you during this most sleep deprived and self doubting time! You need support! The sad news is, everyone has an opinion about how you should raise or take care of your baby. Your response should be the following…”I had the baby, I will see fit how to care for him.” People and family constantly told me what to do and not do and I always responded politely (you don’t want to burn bridges!) That I will do it MY way. You are just going to have to stick up for yourself and if you find it too stressful, reduce the time you spend with people who make you feel this way. You will come into your own as a mother and develop your own style and become confident enough to where even if someone makes a comment, it will roll off your back…because you know you are doing what is right for you. Just remember, things were a lot different for people your mother-in laws age when they were having babies, times have changed and the way we care for our children has too. And as far as your friend goes, I wouldn’t worry too much about her comments, she didn’t raise her child. My son was born premature and I wouldn’t even let family hold him for weeks because I was so paranoid and overstressed. I was getting comments and suggestions 24/7! Just do what you know is best in your heart and leave their comments at the door! You’re the momma now, you make the rules!
Q: Please help with this?
This is a short “postcard story” for a creative writing class in University. We had to create a short piece about a historical person or event. I wrote one on the Nazi’s in Germany which I’m really happy with, but I’m getting writers block now. This one is based on a serial killer, hopefully you can tell who!
I’m not too happy with it, so any help or ideas/advice?
Beef Jerky, Anyone?
My stomach soured the first time I saw him. He always brought a smell in with him that was hard to place. The only thing I could compare it to was the odour I had had to endure during my grandfather’s funeral. He always sat by himself in the darkest corner, which was nearly pitch black in that dreary old bar, and his eyes would follow everyone who walked in. He eyed them with the sick look that a butcher would as the cows rolled in: which would make the juiciest steak, or the softest leather? On one rare night, he ordered a drink – water with lemon, I recall – and as I passed it to him, his eyes lingered on my hand. I remember him wetting his lips, a gesture that sent a sickening shiver up my spine, and I crunched my hand into a tight fist in response. I had met some sick people in my profession – being the only waitress at a dead end bar didn’t offer up too many gentlemen – but I had never felt such an intense fear towards anyone. A few weeks later, he ordered another drink – water with lime, perhaps to give himself a change – and as I dropped it quickly on his table, I noticed an abnormal pendant around his neck. It was strung on with what looked like thick leather, and it resembled something that made my skin crawl: a pair of lips. I didn’t take the chance to get a closer look, but I couldn’t return to work the next day; or any day after that.
Four years later, his face was on the front page of the local paper: convicted of murder, among other things, with a house lodging a disgusting array of bodily horrors.
A: I recalled how he had eyed my hand…
Q: is this a good audition (help please)?
trying out for forks high on livejournal. Is this any good??
Your name: Breanna Fisher
Your Livejournal: Brebabii
Character name: Rachel Williams
Character age: 17
Werewolf, Vampire, or Human: Human
Appearance (a celebrity to relate to can be handy): Taylor Swift(wavy blond hair, blue eyes, round petite nose, very short)
Personality: Snobby, Curious, feisty, very small
Back-history: Just moved to Forks from California. Knew Lauren and Jessica before moving to Forks. Dislikes Forks a lot. She recently had a major breakup and now hates love. In any form.
Is it seriously raining? Again. No wonder these people are so darn pale, there is barely any sun through these clouds if any! I passed a dark hair girl clutching on to a beautiful, pale boy. I wanted to punch her. She had the perfect life, and I was standing in the pouring rain getting SOAKED. I spotted Lauren’s pretty blond hair in the cafeteria and walked towards it. Lauren was very rude, but quiet somehow. Lauren had her nose up in the air until I walked passed. She sheepishly smiled, then continued on with her sour facial expression. Everyone was coupled up, except me.
“Who is that girl with the very pale boy?” I whispered to Jessica.
“Her?,” she sounded appalled.”That’s Bella,” Jessica spit her name out with pure disgust.
I walked over to Bella and the pale boy’s table.I stuck my hand out.
“Hi. I’m Rachel Williams. I’m new here, and don’t know many people.Do you mind if I sit here?” I asked politely.
Bella nodded, but the pale boy shot her a look. “I’m Edward Cullen, and this is Bella Swan,” the pale boy, Edward, said. Ha! Edward??? That’s like a grandpa name. Bella Swan???What is she? A goose?
Personally,I don’t care HOW cute he is. I would not date a grandpa.
“Such cute names,” I smiled.
“Thank you,” Edward and Bella said at the same time, apparently pleased.
“For 80 year old hobos,”I said,still smiling.
Edward’s expression became furious, and Bella’s eyes became wide. She knew this was a nightmare.
Edward started to growl, and Bella gently touched his shoulder. “Edward,” she cautioned in a small voice.
Edward stormed off, grabbing Bella’s hand and furiously walking away.
Aha. Mission Accomplished.
Rachel was glowering at a poster. It was telling you about prom. A list of all the couples were on the paper. Of course, yet again, Rachel was alone. She quickly skimmed the paper. “Edward Cullen and Bella Swan seemed to catch her eye. She walked off pleased with herself and went over to Edward. With her mind she began to believe her well-constructed lie herself.
“Hello. Edward. Bella. I would just like to tell you that prom will be held NEXT Saturday. I am so sorry for your inconvenience,” Rachel said sweetly.
Rachel walked off behind a wall and listened to their conversation.
“Edward? Is it true?” Bella asked.
“Seems so, love,” Edward said.
Love. Rachel felt a moment of pain and sadness, but also a queasiness in her stomach. The last thing Bella and Edward heard was Rachel’s high heels running down the freshly waxed white halls.
A: I haven’t read Twilight but it think it’s fine.
Q: What happened to me last night??!!?
At like 5:45 am this morning I got up and couldn’t feel my legs like they fell asleep or something. Then I start walking to the bathroom and I could feel my legs a little more and I feel down like on my knees and then onto my head on the bathrom floor. I didn’t remember this part that much, just feeling the cold floor beneath my head. I couldn’t get up for about 3 to 5 minutes. I felt like I fainted. Once I got up my face was very hot and tingly and my stomach ached like I was about to throw u. I still didn’t have much feeling in my legs. I couldn’t see well at times; it looked in my head like I fainted and everyting was black and fuzzy. I had to smack my face to get myself out of it. I remember having to sit on the ground next to a wall with my stomach aching, I couldn’t get up without falling over and I felt extemely dizzy because I kept seeing like I was fainting in my head. I took tombs and this helped my stomach a little better. I managed to be able to go to the bathroom as well. When I got back into my bed I was very cold. This could have been from the fan that was turned on our because I wasn’t feeling well. My hands started to feel wierd about 10 minutes later. They felt tingly and hot just like my face but not as severe. Can anyone tell me what this means? I have never had anything like this happen to me! :/ I ate at Pei Wei’s last night: Lo mein with sweet and sour chicken and veggies. I have eaten there before so I don’t think this would have caused this. Thanks!!!!
P.S. I was NOT drinking last night. It is exam week, drinking would be the dummest thing anyone on exam week would be doing right now!
A: there may have been a larger than normal amount of MSG in the food. That could have triggered a severe reaction, but I suggest that you see a doctor.
Q: I cant find this medically PLEASE help me this is scaring me!?
Oki so i will start from the beginning, about two months ago now i was in the hosp due to gal bladder failure, so i was on lost of MDS and was told that my BC was going to be weakened or infective becuz of it.

A: Sounds to me like your meds stopped your BC from working as efficiently…depending on what meds they were this probably consitutes to the irregular ‘bleeding’ your having. Brown blood is old blood. The fact your hormones are now all over the place due to the BC not being as effective. If you are worried about being pregnant I would stop your BC now and discontinue having sex until your period either shows or doesnt then take a test, if it doesnt. Reason I say Discontinue BC is that it can harm an embryo/lead to miscarriage.
Was the meds called Ursodiol (active ingredient) other wise known as Actigall?? Your doctor should have asked you to come off the contraceptive pill if this is the case as it can reduce the effectiveness of the medication.
These are the side effects of the medication:
muscle and joint pain
If you experience any of these then you should call your doctor – and you said you have:
frequent urination or pain when you urinate
cough with fever
I have a feeling that maybe you need to speak to your doctor again and have your gallbladder looked at again.
When your pill stops working as effectively then you can experience a rise in hormones/drop in hormones and this can make you feel dizzy, sick and just tired.
I would wait a week and take a test, then if negative, wait another week and repeat. Do it first thing in the morning with your first wee of the day.
Q: Why do I stink? I think I smell, but don’t know why?
I don’t know how to explain it. I know that none of you can smell me, but I need help. I am sick of it. I go to school, I am 14 and really embarrassed about my smell. I never used to have a problem or had to worry about smelling bad. It’s been going on for awhile now. I always have an odor to me. It’s hard to explain because sometimes I have different odors. I don’t know what to do because I shower everyday, sometimes twice a day, and take occasional baths. My period still isn’t regular and just starts randomly when it wants to. I’ve noticed that I have been having lighter and shorter periods. I wash myself pretty well (with a Dove bar of soap) and wash my hair everyday (Dove shampoo) and I use deodorant (Dove). I know, it sounds like I’m a Dove freak, but when I started noticing the odor, I wasn’t using Dove. I used to use Secret Flawless and Renewal Unscented, but for some reason didn’t work and I’ve tried others like Arrid. I feel like I smell like my deodorant. I don’t want to smell like anything. I just want to blend in. Sometimes I sweat with the deodorant that I wear now. I have to like switch deodorants because if I wear the same one for too long, it stops working. It’s weird. I’m not really sure if it’s a body odor. It could be a yeast infection or something, but I smell it all the time. I can’t really describe it. I also wear clean clothes. And I don’t think it’s my house because whenever people come over, they don’t complain about the smell. I have overheard people say that I smell…not recently, but I have a feeling that I do. I don’t want to be one of those stinky people walking around who doesn’t realize they smell. I just don’t know what to do. I’ve asked my friends if I smell, but they say that I don’t, even though I feel that they are lying. It seems like people act different around me and don’t want to be near me. I ask my mom every day before I go to school and she always says that I don’t. One day, she said that it smelt like I had a yeast infection so she didn’t say anything, but I always smell, so I don’t get it. I wear clean clothes all the time. I am overweight, but I drink water and eat fruits and vegetables (no matter how hard that is for you to believe). I should definitely exercise more and I’m working on that. I have heard that if you wear perfume or vaginal products can cover up the smell or make it worse. I don’t know if this makes a difference, but I have been having some stomach problems, like after I eat and stuff, but nothing major (Its probably Acid Reflux). I brush my teeth twice, sometimes once a day, but I always have an odd, somewhat sour taste in my mouth, so I have to chew gum. Sorry for this being so long. What can I do? Please help me. This is serious and I would really like some answers. Thank You!
Thanks everyone (so far that have answered) Sorry, now that I re-read my question…it’s really long and I probably didn’t have to say as much as I did, but I don’t want you to think negative about me. I don’t care that I stink, I just don’t want to bother others with my awful smell. I just wouldn’t want to stand out because I smell. You know?
A: your just overreacting; your 14 & going thru puberty which means your body is changing. just keep different deodorants in your purse with you. try summers eve wipes or even the always wipes that come with the pads they have those you can buy. if you feel its bad then you should talk to your doctor.
Q: My 12 year old daughter always seems annoyed or aggravated?
Nothing ever is good enough. Does anyone else have this problem with their kid? is this just the age category? My husband and i have more than enough money and we’re always very hands on with our daughter giving her lots of love and attention. i know she loves us but her personality bothers me. Never says thank you, please…always has a depressed look on her face…never happy with anything apart from her hobby, “horse back riding”. When my friends smile at her she turns away….it’s really annoying me. My husband has a high status (he’s always on television, in the media…we live in europe) and it feels like she respects him much more. She tip toes around him, she lets him play with her hair (which i know she doesn’t really like…but lets him)…but when i ask her to do something she always talks or responds sharply. She makes sour faces often when i try clothes on in boutiques and rudely says the collection is horrible in front of the sales person. You have no idea what i had to go through picking out a nude bra she wanted to do gym in school…..we went through all the best stores trying millions out…she likes absolutely NOTHING.either the cup is too hard, too soft, too see through, too many ruffles, too smooth…. ( And i’m pretty strict myself…but i sometimes let things slide knowing she’s still a little kid) What to do?
btw…she had her first period last summer
though at rare times she does talk back to her father or snap (and my husband is a powerful man where we live and doesn’t take crap from anyone…and our daughter is the only one he listens to) he even sometimes embarrases or lectures me in public but never her. He and I hardly talk anymore as he thinks of himself so “high”…he comes home a couple of times a month for a week (we have a private plane—he works in New York) and when he comes we hardly talk. Basically our relationship is that he lets me spent his money the way i want an that’s it. This morning i told my daughter it’s better not a good idea to go horse back riding today because of her sore throat (doctor told her she can’t either) and now she’s not talking to me walking past me looking irritated as if it’s my fault! `i told her if she went today and got even more sick she wouldn’t be able to go for a whole week so it’s better to stay home this one day. I asked her if she wanted to bake something with me she goes, “NO`’ angrily, then i asked her if she want to frame a picture of her friend and her and paint the frame together…again she snaps back NO.
this is a little bit irrelevant but my husband and i adopted her when she was 2 months and if she were ever to find out…i can’t even begin to imagine what would happen to her…she’s already so closed up.
her biological mother was a 16 year old drug addict who had 7 other kids and when i just adopted her, my daughter had so many stomach problems at even 2 months old and always crying…maybe it has something to do with her genes the way shes acting..
just so you all know….we help out in society a lot, eg. children’s homes, hospitals…etc
i also have to practically force her to play the piano… i make her take lessons twice a week and she doesn’t practice! i have to stand over her and make her. The same with german lessons..
A: All girls go through this. It’s just a stage, it will pass. Just try to be there for her. Buy her things she wants, but don’t spoil her. If she is crying and upset, put your arm around her and comfort her, but don’t ask questions about it. You can ask “Do you want to talk about it?” and if she says no, then drop it and just try to make her feel better. Just be there for her, but don’t intrude on her. Give her space. She will cheer up eventually, and then open up to you more.
Q: I feel so sick but my mom doesn’t care- what is wrong with me?
I’ve missed like, 3 days of school already, and I don’t want to miss more.
My stomach hurts really bad, like it just feels sour and I can’t eat.
My throat is scratch and my nose hurts really really bad. There’s tons of pressure.
And it almost feels like the flu except I’m not puking, because I’m really really weak, it’s hard to walk or stand for more than a few minutes. Also, I can’t sleep. I’ve taken benedryl to help me sleep, but it doesn’t help. I haven’t slept more than 3 hours in the past 2 days.
I’m really not exaggerating- I haven’t been able to eat for aout 2 days, just water. I told my mom and she said, “Just sleep, you’ll feel better” and I told her I couldn’t sleep, and she said, “Just close your eyes and sleep, jesus!”
A: Could be a sinus infection. Or the flu or a cold.
Go to a walk in clinic or something.
Q: colicly horse???? Help?
Ok so I was riding this horse in one of my lessons. He was perfectly fine in the first half hour of my ride but he did feel a little strange when I first got on and he wormed up out if it and he spooked and he only did i once before. But I did not think any thing of it.
Ok so half way in to the lesson we just finished shortening the walk, trot, and canter. we gave him a little break to relax and then I picked him back up and trotted a little and asked for the canter. I was by the gate and there was a sour horse on the other side and he sucked back and I tapped him with my whip thinking he was just being his old self. After about 3 or 4 short slow strides in the canter he popped his left hip out and kicked out!!! And that is not his personality…I did not even think he knew how to kick out!! and I thought that was strange and that it was not a kick out because I did not think that he was capable of that. My trainer just looked away that second and asked me what he just did and I did not know what to tell her…I said “I don’t know but i wanna say he kicked out”. Then she said pick up your canter again and I put my leg on and he did a double barrel kick!!! I could not believe it, there was something wrong. She thought I was jabbing him with this sper stop on my boot (It is a zip tall boot). So i just pushed with my calves and he did sucked back and did it again…Then she said there is a definitely a problem cause she seen that I was not jabbing him. She i got off and looked every where on him, checked his back to make sure it was not sore and it was not.
Then she said that she would get on him and maybe figure out what what wrong cause she could feel it better then i could. So she got on and the same thing!! but this time he started looking at his left side like it was sore. and she got off and we decided to lounge him and really watch him if he got tense but he never….on the lounge line he would be normal and out of the blue just take off! and he did this a couple times. He did not get tense in his stomach area at all not once. he had a lot of energy so we let him go and run around in the arena. He galloped!
So my trainer tacked him up again hoping he got all his bucks out…maybe and she got on walked him all the way to the middle of the arena and put leg on and she would place it there and his ears would go back and then she tried again and held it there and he kicked out one leg and then….I took him and walked him out and gave him a bath…He was still really spooky.
So we considered everything!! It so happens that the only two vets on the island are gone somewhere and I just thought I would give this a try and see what you all could come up with….Anything that could help would be great! or if others have gone through something like this and knew anything!! please and thank you…
He had the exact same equipment, and it was just a normal day just like every other Friday.
He is a lesson horse so yes lots of other people ride him, usually he has a short walk trot lesson in the mornings but that was canceled. So i was the only person to ride him on Friday.
no, he does not go in the pasture, he is a barn/show horse
yes, I do use a tie down on him and we checked his mouth and there was very little blood coming from his gums by his canines.
His feet were fine, nothing out of the ordinary
Well out feeder is not doing a good job at all and we were wondering if he got the same breakfast…so we considered that.
He does get worked a lot, personally but he seems fine with it. yes he has a day off a week.
A: Have you used the same equipment as normal on him?
Has anyone else ridden him lately?
Has he been asked to perform in a way different than his normal routine?
Does he go out to pasture with other horses?
Same bit as normal etc? No tie down? Feet trimmed recently? If he wears shoes, are they all on correctly? Is is diet the same as usual? Not feeding him too much grain? Has he been ridden too often without a break?
I would bet that he is in pain somewhere. Keep a close eye on him.
Check his teeth and mouth to see if he has any sharp edges on his teeth that have caused a sore in his mouth. Also, if you ride with any sort of tie down or martingale, if a horse has a sharp point in their tooth, that sort of equipment will often cause the cheek to press into the sharp teeth very bad. I just learned that from my Veterinarian yesterday while he was floating my horse’s teeth.
Your horse could have been kicked in an odd place if he’s out to pasture with other horses. His feet could be bothering him. It also, could very likely be pain in the area where his saddle sits.
If I were you, I would put him in his stall and let him relax. When he’s quiet, I would go in, and run my hands… VERY SLOWLY, with absolute minimal pressure all over his body. Watch his eyes and his lips. If he doesn’t respond in a big way (such as tossing his head, flinching), a horse will often blink and their lips with twitch when your hands go over a place that is sore.
You have to remember that horse’s are prey animals and will do everything they can to not show pain in an effort to protect themselves. Because in the wild, if they show they are in pain, predators will single them out. It is still ingrained in their brains to not show pain. You have to really watch for subtle signs. That is why they will act out so severely in pain but you wont find them showing where the pain is coming from. I mean, you can just run you hand from his poll, all the way down one side of his spine with just enough pressure to touch the hair, and a horse will subtly show you where the pain is. Do it on both sides of his spine from poll to tail. Then go down his neck to his shoulders. Down his girth line, etc.
It is important to make sure the horse is relaxed. If he suddenly tries to walk away from no outside reason, he may be trying not to show you where he is hurting. Go back to that place.
Give him some rest and don’t mess with him for a couple of days. He may just be sore and need some time off. Have your vet check him over when he gets back before you ride him again. Keep a close eye on him to make sure his condition doesn’t worsen.
Q: Help! My apartment is making me sick ?
I have been living in a small basement apartment for about a year.
During the winter, it was just fine to live in, as I could open the window for fresh air. (But now as summer has struck and still lingers) I can’t open it because it’s so hot outside. A little over 100 degrees.
I have a small window AC but all it does is cool my room, it doesn’t bring in any fresh air.
Problem with my basement apartment is that it gets damp so easily from the heat of doing dishes, taking showers, etc…
I just cannot stand the smell in my apartment anymore! It’s a musty-sour scent.
And like I said, it’s only been this way through the summer, Winter is just fine as there’s actually a breeze that airs it out.
But recently the musty-sour smell has been making me ill.
When I am at family’s house, or elsewhere, I am just fine. But as soon as I walk through the door to my apartment, I immediately start to gag and feel like I have to throw up.
When I am at home in my apartment for long periods of time, I actually do get sick.
I throw up almost daily when I am home. And it is really starting to affect me.
It has been so bad that my hubby and I actually thought I might have been pregnant with morning sickness!
I have been not eating because I thought it might make me throw up less, however, I have been throwing up even without anything in my stomach.
We have tried EVERYTHING. I have been drinking ginger ale and eating ginger snaps and using lemons to take the odor away to try to combat my nausea.
I have tried cleaning my apartment daily with cleaners. I clean my kitchen and bathroom floors daily with febreeze swiffer pads. Use bleach in all sinks, toilets, tubs.
Dust and vacuum often as well. Wash bedding every 2-3 days.
No matter how much I clean, or how much air freshener, or candles I use, I cannot get rid of the smell.
My hubby and I are so sick of the place that we will do anything to not stay there that night.
Thankfully we are going on vacation soon, but I don’t know what to do when we get back.
We are in serious need of help.
Currently we can’t move because we just had a ton of medical bills hit us, on top of our monthly rent.
And another problem is, our apartment is already expensive. All other apartments in our area are way out of budget.
Edit: Thanks for the concern Katherine, but we actually didn’t use much money for vacation. When I say vacation, I mean a family CAMPING trip. Anything is a vacation when it comes to getting out of that apartment. So thanks, but it’s not the kind of “vacation” you thought. We spent only about $80 for our “vacation”
A: I would get out or get the landlord to come in and have a whiff and do something about it. You probably need a dehumidifier in it. If there is black mold in there, then you need to get out.
Q: help me outtt (: was this okay (diet and workout) easy 10 points!!?
-2 plain scrambeled eggs
-190 cal weight watcher muffin
-200 cal sandwich on wheat with turkey
-100 cal worth of wheat crackers
-1 small banana
-cup of peaches
-90 cal granola bar
-2 chicken tacos. with shredded chicken, a table spoon of cheese, and table spoon of fat free sour cream
-about 12 tortilla chips
so im thinking in all, that was about 1450 calories.
i ran 3 miles yesterday, so today my body just couldnt run that far. i ran about 1.5 miles speed of 5.2-5.5mph. and walked at a speed of 3.5-4mph for .6 of a mile.
i just couldnt run fast or far.
and i did 200 crunches, and all the machines at the gym for entire body, and i plan on doing an ab blast video tonight.
so is that okay food wise and exercise wise? my stomach really hurts right now and its bloated. i just ate and then ran about 30 minutes later. do you know what that could be from?
by the way…im 17, 5′4.5”, and 126 pds
A: I think that was an awesome diet and excercise. It was for one day right? You may try to worry about excercise less and see if it releases less pain for you. I hope I could help.
