Hello All!

I am brand new to the site here. I'm 32, and I've been heavy all my life. I have arthritis in my knees and have PCOS too. I'm going to my dr on Friday for my annual exam and I'm afraid of the news I'll hear. I have swelling in my legs and some signs of diabetes so I'm afraid that may be an outcome.

Does Anyone Know Why A Person Would Feel Hungry All The Time.

Does Anyone Know Why A Person Would Feel Hungry All The Time.

I eat a meal and like an hour later I feel like I have not eaten in hours. I have also woken up in the middle of the night feeling like I am starving and of course all of this is making me gain a lot of weight. I have just moved and I am in the process of getting a new doctor. Any ideas why I would suddenly feel like this, what I can do, what kind of doctor I should see, tests that should be done. Any help would be so appreciated.

Is There Any Exercises I Can Do After Neck Surgery?

Is There Any Exercises I Can Do After Neck Surgery?

I had neck surgery in 2015 and to this day I am still having problems.I have rods and screws in my neck. I was told I would not be able to raise my arms above my head, therefore lifting weights is not possible. I know I need to exercise, but my muscles stay in a state of tightness and spasms from my neck to my shoulders. I don't feel like exercising cause I know it will put a strain on my neck and will hurt. Therefore I just don't do it. Does anyone know of any exercises I might be able to… read more
