Suufering from fever.

Fever Symptoms Following are the signs that indicate the presence of this ailment: * High temperature * Headache * Muscle ache * Burning eyes * Loss of appetite * Coated tongue * Excessive production of saliva * Feeling of heaviness and nausea Causes Fever is caused due to the aggravation of any one or all the doshas of the body. Fever can occur as a result of infection, because of external injury, insect bite or poisoning. It must be kept in mind that fever can also be a symptom of many conditions, like bronchitis, pleurisy, tuberculosis, jaundice, malaria, measles or influenza. Remedies Some general remedies that are beneficial in fever are: * Mild sweating: this helps to digest the toxins. Lie on a bed covered with a blanket, for 15 to 20 minutes. Drinking a hot liquid also helps. * Take 10 grams (one-tablespoon) raisins and 10 grams (one tablespoon) fresh ginger. Crush and put in 200-ml. water for one hour.

Dear Doctor, I last had a bone density scan a year ago which showed Osteopenia in my spine although hips were normal. I have an 8 history of eating disorders (mostly bulimia and only slightly underweight although irregular periods, until the past 19 months when things became more anorexic and BMI has been between 12.5-15 with no menstruation). My current concern is that following a fall a month ago I have pain in my coccyx which shows no sign of improving and I worry it may have 'crumbled' and that this is the beginning of me losing height. Is this likely? Many thanks for your help.

I like to eat a lot of food, but I never really get the time to anymore. My weight is also considered "anorexic" based on my BMI, but I have never been anorexic. And when I eat, even eat a lot, nothing happens. I don't gain any weight. So what I'm worried about is this actually turning into anorexia. What do I do?

doctor1 MD

I am anorexic and abuse laxatives. Lately I have been waking up in the middle of the night, and my heart is racing, I'm sweating and I'm shaking. I feel faint and can barely see. Because I am restricting food so severely, my first instinct is to eat something. I eat and eventually fall asleep, then wake up feeling nauseas and vomitting. What could be causing this? What can I do to reverse this.

Doctor, My name is Kristin Crofford and I am conducting a research paper for my English 102 class. An interview is required for a final draft in my research paper. My topic is based on the effects photoshopped images have on consumers. If you have time to answer a few questions it would be greatly appreciated! Are any of your patients males suffering from disorders such as Anorexia nervosa, Bulimia nervosa, etc.? Are any of your patients models struggling for approval from companies demanding a certain image? Have any of your patients specifically mentioned any magazine images, clothing catalogues, models in the fashion industry, that have contributed to their idea of what their body should look like? Do you believe photoshop is an issue in today s society that needs to be dealt with, and why? Any examples that contribute to your decision would be helpful, and understandably anonymous. Do you believe there has been an increasing rate of patients struggling from eating disorders, or self-image inferiority in the past few years? Thank you for your time, I hope to hear back from you soon!
